    @#$%ing California. Better ban those $6000 35 lb rifles with hugely expensive ammo! Someone somewhere might shoot a police officer someday with one of those! Our gun laws are a bad joke here. I’m so,so, so tired of being 6 months behind on the perpetual 30 day wait list for handgun registrations. Want to grab some awesome deals at an estate sale? Or even buy a matched pair? Or get a new race gun for a trip? Good f’-ing luck. They had a three screw Blackhawk in .41 Mag for $250 at the local shop, but since I couldn’t take delivery until @#$%^ing December or something I passed. I’d love to hear the genius reasoning behind this stupid,stupid law.

    Can you buy it now or do you have to wait for the Obama Administration to allow it to walk across our southern border first?

    Husband: “Oh hey, I sold the house. But you HAVE to check out the one of a kind rifle I picked up at auction!”
