He seems like a really nice and considerate guy. He said that he even puts underwear on the ladies in the winter when it gets cold.

Might be a little bat # crazy but so what?

The heavy arms collectors have are inoperable as a weapon. The armaments are disabled and the barrels on the tanks are plugged. They are just collectibles.

would I be right in saying that his tanks, mortars and so on doing actually have the ability to fire explosives? have they been modified in someway to be safe for private ownership?


Either is possible. One thing to keep in mind though it is almost impossible to find ammunition for the outdated cannons and mortars.

Dragonman:

He is a business man, buys, and sells firearms.

He is a nice man, a bit weird, but he does have a point with the weapons he has: No one messes with him.

I watched a show a while back, that had a guy on who had a tank and they discussed it. He was made to weld an internal plug into the barrel of the gun before he could own it. They showed a shot down the barrel and you could see the metal plug that welded inside.

I'd imagine his stuff is the same.

There are lot more pieces out there that have been rendered inop, but not all are like that.

So you a buy a flame-througher legally.

Yet you cannot use one in war, legally.

That right there, thats the kind of thing that is wrong with American gun laws.


Can he use one, legally, to kill people? Otherwise you kinda failed here. You actually can use them in war, just not to kill people. Civilians can't either.

I know Dragonman as a customer he has family ,some military.
Mel's a stickler for his ranges and has a machinegun shoot there on 9/11 for the public one year we had a WWII Wehrmacht machine gunner show up and shoot an MG 34 ,HE was absolutely thrilled.
We vets enjoy firearms,here in Colo Spgs, BUT then again WE also get long with OUR hippies and witches in Manitou.
PEACE is obtained by being cool.

Yes.
An American civilian can privately own a functional tank with a functional main gun.... legally.

Bearing Arms has an article about it.

We have stated,the limited knowledge you common express is redundant,CASTE raised minds CANNOT resist nor grasp alphas of THEIR OWN cultures MUCH less the chaos we stew in HERE.
HOW can any activist claim ANY position at ALL from authority?
ALL they KNOW is philosophy,and at their WORST they are DYED in the wool Communists in denial.
AT least it's how academics who speak of guns are taken.
SO what's with the heavy turret armor screwing up YOUR reception?

Thanks, it appears in that case it likely had to do with local or state laws. Then whether you can own it at all, or have it operational is up to the local jurisdiction. Sounds like moving them between states would be not that easy.

Blaine, I have to notify BATFE if traveling out of state with my machinegun (RDIAS). It is a pain in the neck.

In the limited case of the one I was talking about, the man was required to plug the barrel with something that could not be removed.

Now having read the law on it, local law trumps federal law and to purchase it requires local approval.

Agreed

One of the few regulations/controls I think are totally reasonable

Except now I want a tank.
If wishes were fishes.

I looked and it is possible to own a fully automatic weapon manufactured prior to 1986 as long as it's acquired legally under the National Firearms Act. Looks like it takes a maximum of 30 days to get the local documents needed if requested.

On other firearms, we basically have no laws here and no need for a permit to carry concealed or in a vehicle if over 21.

Oddly enough, the only time I've needed one here in Alaska for self defense, pretending to have one on me sufficed. I'd just done my business deposits and left with a few thousand in cash and the whole time, two guys who turned out to be tourists were watching from the front door of the bank. I exited the back door to the parking lot and one of them walked up to me with a handgun in a paper sack, made sure I noticed it and nodded towards the bank bag. I stuck my hand inside my jacket and looked him square in the eye and he ran. If only he knew all I had in there was a pen.


I only carry if I think I'll need one for bear protection or I'm out shooting for fun.
