    I think you got it.

    I think NJ is worse than CA at this point. I would suggest moving to a free state. I am working on moving to a free-er state myself.

    Ugly. yeah I'll give you that. But ugly does not a felony make. And if only had tools were used then I gotta give the guy points for patience at least. :wow:

    What would be the opinion if someone posted a picture of their marginally more aesthetic home made Ruger 10-22?

    There might be less question as to the legality I suspect? :supergrin:

    Q: Does the GCA prohibit anyone from making a handgun, shotgun or rifle?

    This is pretty much the bottom line for most typical non-NFA firearms. Thus I have no qualms whatsoever about the legality of my home brew 10-22 even though I made that years before I had an FFL.

    When the SHTF, that ugly beast of a gun would enable someone to do whats needed to get to a better gun, maybe get what they need to survive.

    When it comes to a point that it turns violent (see Ukraine two weeks ago for instance) something like that home made gun will be worth its weight in gold to an unarmed person...

    All of these places involved in civil wars in the past 20 years also happen to be places where the citizens were disarmed years before the country fell apart. So next time your favorite gun grabber comes up for re-election, keep that in mind when you're too lazy to get out and vote for the other guy... NY has 6 million gun owners and the ****** in charge only had 2 million votes against him... this is why we are suck with the safe act and other nonsense laws.
