Title: Piece of polymer ban
Post by: knobster on December 20, 2018, 07:44:51 am
Looks like TPTB have decided that 'bumpstocks' are now machine guns.  People have until late-March to either "turn in or destroy" these nefarious devices or risk 10 years in prison.

Too bad it fell in a lake after the tractor incident...a shame you cant show them the broken stock.

Nevermind that you can bump fire without the stock.  The stock just lets you get away with sloppy technique.

Also, bump firing is horrendously inaccurate, so while it may be fun, it's also a waste of ammo and training time.
