    It is a "casing from a stinger missile". That is not so useful.

    It is like having a casing from a 120mm tank shell. Doesn't do much good...but it makes a great story...

    I better get rid of my .223 brass. It's like having a machine gun.

    BSO, PBSO, and City of Miami PD chief administrators are known gun-grabbers; I would expect nothing less than the BradyBunch party line from any of them....:steamed:

    It says a "Stinger CASE" I know of no law that says you can't have the CASE a weapon comes in. Now I do recall in Calif. the 50 being outlawed?? Not sure if thats true but what I recall. Then again this is FL.
    Its possible on the SBRs. Folks make mistakes with that all the time. You see a AR with 12-14" barrel and FAKE supresser on it. (so over 16") BUT its NOT WELDED to threads... "I put perminent locktite, its legal..."

    To my understanding that would NOT fly. (But owner thought it was as its PERMINENT) Or they get total length under (what is it 26"?) Then you have the if you have a short barrel upper and stocked lower you have a (forget term) SBR Was it "Constructive posession?" If its not illegal when they take it... Well it might be by trial.

    The video showed a LAW launcher tube and an AT4 both of which you can buy at any Army Navy store.

    Until I read the article and found out it was a "casing from a Stinger missile" i kinda thought you might have been a little off base. Not really sure even the real extremists here could have logically supported having Stingers in the closet.

    Then, I saw in the article it is like some sort of relic/souvenir or something.......

    It actually says "Stinger CASING". The used tube from a Stinger missile?

    So surplus crates is now an arsenal? How does that manufacture firearms?

    That isn't even an armory. That is a crate.

    "They were operating like organized crime," said Lamberti. "In fact, our intelligence strongly suggests that they had ties to the Columbo crime family."

    I think they meant Colombo crime family!

    Anyone else notice all the fingers on the triggers when they were displaying the weapons for the cameras?

    Just curious, since I don't know what I'm talking about on legal rulings with issues like this.
    But permanent Locktite is NOT permanent like welding, or silver soldering, etc.

    Have you seen something in writing that says permanent locktite used to attach a Fake supresser makes the barrel length legal?

    Permanent locktite is very easy to remove. Just heat the part to 300 degrees for a few minutes and the part will screw right off.

    Like I said, just curious.

    He was making the point it is NOT "permanent" under BATFE rules.

    The part he put in quotes was someone else saying it was legal. Not him. Thus, the quotes.

    That is correct. My understanding is anything that can be removed is not "Permanent" Supposidly they even machined flats so large pipe wrenches in order to break the welds....

    I have been tempted to make a AR pistol. I have a virgin lower. (so what I recall I could buy pistol buffer/sub 16" upper and be legal) BUT I also have a full size AR. The concern they might claim I have ever put them together....

    That and I figure I would sell it after the novility wore off. Never done it.

    Make sure the lower was not sold on the paperwork as a "rifle". It could cause a problem. As long as you have at least one legal lower, the uppers are okay. Just remember that if the wrong lower joins the wrong upper for a nanosecond, you have committed a felony.

    I misread that as he has one that he attached with Permanent locktite and that made it legal. Guess it depends on how you read the statement. In any event, the bottom line is permanent locktite doesn't make it legal.

    Sorry about misreading the statement.

    Yeah, it kind of ran together a little. He meant you see a snubbie AR-15 with a 12-14" barrel and a Fauxpressor on it. The owner says it is legal because the Fauxpressor makes it over 16". But the Fauxpressor is held on with LokTite.

    Have we figured out yet if the people had:


    A Stinger Missile?
    An Empty Stinger tube?
    The plastic box Stingers are shipped in?
