The sidecar has a pintle available along with mounts for the DP 28 and MG 42.
Inlight of all the gun controll nonsense that exists, I have questioned numerous law personnel and have gotten mixed reactions to my desires. I truyly expect to get " questioned ", but am prepared to prove that it will not fire and is for a conversational purposes and it will not be an everyday occurance but would be used primarilly for parades etc.
Thanks for any help you might provide.

Do you know about the Soviet Steeds forum for Urals? There is a TON of info over there in the modifications & accessories subforum on this very sort of thing.

Oh, BTW, hit Wally-world today for a box of clay piegons and land o'goshen, they had 100 round boxes of 9mm, and .40 S&W, AND still had a bit of .22 LR. Wow. Of course with a three box limit. At least I kept close to what I shot today, I am down a box of .40, but I've got plenty - looks like there's a trickle making it to the market.

Guy at the counter said that they had a HUGE shipment and even had the 525 round boxes of .22, which I really want one, maybe two of. He had a shopping cart at the register that was full of flattened cartons that contained todays shipment of ammo.

As my shooting buddy observed: They got plenty of 12 Gauge, we will just shoot Skeet. I am getting a lot better with the Superpoised, plus I found a manual on line to remind me how to disassemble it for easier cleaning.

The new .40 is proving to be as easy to feed as the Browning - smooth firing and so far, perfect loading. Tried the two backstraps as well - oddly the one that feels 'better' to hold, actually bites my hand, the flatter, thinner one feels odder to hold but seems less painful to shoot. Going to try that again to be sure, its a whip to change 'em.

Even if they did somehow get around that (not likely), they would have to get a warrant to come and take them. A warrant for each home that is. With probable cause.
Blanket warrants are also expressly forbidden.

Illegal search and seizure gets even the gun haters panties in a wad.

Hope some of that makes it east to Ohio. I need to stock some more 9mm and .22s' for summer shooting.

who ever said laws have to make sense? here in UK a semi-auto shotgun cant have more than a 2 round magazine, ie must be a 3 shot, or its a firearm not a shotgun (way different licensing, lots more hoops to jump through basically, lots more ). but who makes a semi-auto with only a 2 round mag? so some like berettas have the mag tube crimped so the spring carrier wont go in far enough for more than 2, but most, like my winchester, just have a 4" plastic slug in the mag pretending to be 2 cartridges, which takes about 10secs to take out. like it was ever a huge menace to society anyway.

This gun thread needs more guns and less talk.

Finally! After 30 years at the gun club taking chances on every gun raffle that comes along, I finally won one. Savage .243 in camo. Sure, it doesn't fit in to my expected rifles in the gun safe plan, but in the 30 seconds or so I had to decide which of the five guns sitting there to take, it looked closest to something I would actually shoot.
It isn't like the good ole days. You used to just carry the gun off if you won. I got to carry it off, right to the back office where it went back in the box, and in the pile to go back to the gun store where I can go pick it up Wednesday.

That's a nice prize. I think that was one of Jack O'Conners favorites - for Pronghorn, IIRC. I'm sure it will be fun.

I'm still pondering the 12BVSS in .308 for range use - they sure are priced attractively for their performance. At this point though, I'm going to hold off until summer at the moment and work on my handgun shooting.

Between ammo hoarding and the concurrent shortages of reloading materials, there's not even any point in buying reloading gear either. Perhaps by summer there might be a slacking off in the ammo shortages - I hope anyway.

To quote Airplane: Looks like I picked the wrong week to start shooting again....

Many shotguns (pumps and semi's) sold in the US come with 2 rnd. limiters standard because of the limits for Federal migratory birds. For those who don't shoot Federal migratory birds, you can remove the plugs and or increase the magazine capacity.

Bought this Stoeger yesterday. I sold my Savage Fox 12ga a couple years back and instantly had seller's remorse.
The guy threw in 50 rounds of slugs and 00, 000 buck. Can't find buckshot anywhere.

Nice, after a discussion in the "bear gun" thread I'm thinking a double 12 would be a nice addition.
