    Thanks for the feed back on the CZ. We can't actually carry in Canada. However, if I'm backpacking, I'll very discreetly have a hand cannon handy. Very discreet. If I had to use it on a bear, I would just keep it between myself and the bear. Rather be tried by 12, than carried by 6.......or eaten!
    Lots written about the perfect personal defence gun. Give me a good DA revolver EVERY TIME! A nice easy to manage .357 by Ruger or S&W. 4.2" in Canada, we can't get 4"???? That's my backpacking choice as well.
    The CZ will be simply for the range. Fun Gun.
    Again, thanks for the feed back guys.

    If it was a local law enforcement office handling the intake procedure they would merely run a record check on the serial number of the weapon. If it came back with negative results that means it hasn't been reported stolen and is not known to be involved with any lookouts.

    The checks more than likely would not be run through an ATF database, and due to the age would most likely be considered a 'curios'.


    Firearm curios or relics include firearms which have special value to collectors because they possess some qualities not ordinarily associated with firearms intended for sporting use or as offensive or defensive weapons. To be recognized as curios or relics, firearms must fall within one of the following categories:
    1. Have been manufactured at least 50 years prior to the current date, but not including replicas thereof; or
    2. Be certified by the curator of a municipal, State, or Federal museum which exhibits firearms to be curios or relics of museum interest; or
    3. Derive a substantial part of their monetary value from the fact that they are novel, rare, bizarre, or from the fact of their association with some historical figure, period, or event.

    But what I said was that I don't like DA/SA
    Not DAO
    I don't like having 2 different trigger pulls
    The idea was to make it simple for cops transitioning from a revolver

    I like a single action, but on my HiPower with the SFS, you don't do Condition One, you rack the slide to chamber the first round.
    Then you PUSH the hammer forward to the down position with your thumb.
    The safety pops into SAFE position
    The hammer is locked down
    The sear is locked
    The gun is SAFE Hammer down Condition 2
    Pull from holster
    Thumb safety down
    Hammer goes back to full cock
    Pull trigger (single action every shot)

    If that gun, which I'm not sure, has full auto capability, then I don't believe it's covered under curios and relics.

    The time to register old full autos has long expired.

    crap crap crap. I had myself talked in to thinning out the guns that are sitting in the safe that rarely see daylight. I took out my STI's and took pictures and wrote an ad for them, but am having a hell of a time convincing myself to push the list this item button. :baldy

    Why would anyone sell guns you ask? Because I lost an argument with the wife. We were at the store and I was wanting to pick up a mossberg 500 combo shotgun. She said I already had one, I swore I didn't. Guess what was buried in the back of the safe behind all the silly black rifles? :doh None of these have gotten any range time since I bought my first springfield XDM, and of course I had to buy another one of those, so now I have about 8 9mm's in the safe and only those two XDM's have come out this year.

    To go along with the GP100 I haven't shot in, 15? years, and the .38 that is still new in the box from the 70's? :baldy
    Come to think of it, there's at least five guns in the safe I have never gotten around to shooting, a couple of which are 20+ years old at this point. I have some serious kind of mental problem. :lol3

    Well if the weather stays warm I think you should bring them up to my place so we can give them some range time. :D Nothing says' road trip like free time on a private range, right?:D besides weren't you just in Columbus?

    I feel better about myself now. I have a rifle a buddy keeps trying to buy from me. I keep telling him I can't sell it to him because I have not shot it yet. I have to at least shoot it first.

    Matt, you must have a far bigger safe than I do. :lol3

    Also, I agree with you, guns are for buying, not selling.

    (Especially here.)
