    .45 cal ammunition has doubled in the last couple of years.

So sixty bucks a night, bye bye league.

    Pretty cool.

    Condition 3 1911's? Ugh... guess it takes all kinds.

    Plus, no one had a Winchester Mod. 12, or Browning A5 shotgun to bring? Too bad!


    Still great idea!!! If anyone wants to try to get something like that going in Seattle, let me know. I have modern built versions of about every gangster era gun you can think of. (.38 super 1911, semi-auto Thompson, mod 12's the works)

    Ms. VintageRed, it's a lot more complicated than a blanket "legal/illegal". To lawfully own a full-auto Thompson (a long-barrel semiauto's okay except in states with an "Ugly Guns Ban" aka "Assault Weapons Ban"), all of the following must be true:
    1. It must have been manufactured and first registered with ATF (the dreaded "Form 4" $200 tax-stamp) prior to May 1986, when the Registry was closed.
    2. You must have a Form 4 registration for it, which has to be approved before you pick it up.
    3. It must be legal to own in your state of residence (30-some states are still only banning "offensive/aggressive possession", rather than all ownership; alas, mine's not one)

    Interesting looking sport--too bad there's no way to make a range safe so that something like this can allow shoulder-holsters or crossdraws...

    Thank you sir, for your explanation as well. Someone else was kind enough to shoot me (excuse the pun) a PM with similar information. I feel much more knowledgeable now.

    On an aside, I do love your sig phrase. I'll have to keep that one in mind.

    Good point, although might the outdoor conditions reduce that problem significantly?

    Or, you can just dress like Fred C. Dobbs (I suggested they have a Treasure of Sierra Madre 'caper', with .38 double action revolvers and lever action rifles).
