This time, by restricting NFA trusts. You can comment on their web site. Here’s an example of a constructive comment written by my IP attorney Glenn Bellamy, aka Armorer at Law.
Rob Allen and Joe Huffman also have sample letters up. Please add your voice to the arguments against this ill-considered (or, more likely, ill-meant) plan by ATF.

And I found myself wishing for more clouds for my photo shoot.
Every time I come to Keltec, the most interesting variants of their guns come from the trunks and desk drawers of the employees. This one is no different, coming from a 3-gun shooter. It’s a PLR16 pistol registered as an SBR and fitted with SU16 stock. Very handy little piston gun with a 9.5 inch barrel. Fitted with Vortex Sparc red dot, it’s light and very fast. The flat shape on the shooter’s hip is a slightly customized PMR30.
Does anyone know of specialized standalone programs (not plugins for more complex 3D rendering programs) that simulate smoke, fire and other natural effect?
Looking for models age 20-35, men and women, who have at least some familiarity with safe handling of firearms. The projected look would be young professionals who enjoy recreational shooting and appreciate the defensive utility of firearms as well. I did a quick look through modeling directories but didn’t find anyone who struck me as appropriate. So I looking for recommendations and volunteers.
A friend from Utah who showed me around the state a little. Former Marine, currently a concealed carry instructor, among other things.
Today, on my flight from Nashville to Orlando, I sat next to a very interesting gentleman. I was fresh out of business cards. We intended to swap contact info after deplaning, but got separated.
If you know who this person is, please forward my contact info to him. He’s 85, a former psychiatrist. He had heart surgery last year. He’s piloted Cessina 150 and 172 before as a hobby pilot. His father flew a Taylorcraft. Right after the Korean War, he was drafted and spent his military time in Texas as a medical orderly, after which he went to medical school on the GI Bill. He has four kids. He lives in Connecticut most of the time. I think one of his sons lives in Tennessee and another in Florida. One of his grandkids is a helicopter pilot.
I have a small Bitcoin account and would like to put the funds in it to use. What’s a good place to buy electronics or ammunition with it?
AK74 clone with TWS railed cover and co-witnessed Aimpoint and iron sights. Either v-notch (shown) or aperture sights from TWS co-witness perfectly with the low-mounted Aimpoint. Magpul CTR stock and AFG.

AK74 clone (Tantal) in 5.45×39, with Aimpoint on a TWS railed cover, Magpul stock.
I am repairing a toilet tank for a friend. Got the replacement parts, but the entire flapper seal assembly seems glued in place. Prying it with a flathead screwdriver didn’t work. Any suggestions on how the glue could be broken down?
I’d like to verify AF calibration of my lenses with my primary camera body? What’s the nearest place to Nashville where I could get that done? I tried doing it myself but the results were inconclusive.
In particular, Fuji and Panasonic, though others would be of interest also. I’d like to T&E some of their gear and write it up, but lack the connections to the right people.
I will be doing photos for friend’s brand (Crusader Weaponry), looking for 2-3 people with some firearm proficiency. Basic safety familiarity would be enough, I can coach the rest if needed. The shoot would last about three hours.
While I have been scrambling, camera in hand, through rocky hills of Austin, TX with my friends from TWS, quite a few of my photos got circulated in Russia at the second RKBA convention. Many will see yourselves on the posters shown in this video. You’ll also see familiar gun rights faces as well as some strange bedfellows like Zhirinovsky. Never expected to be on the same side!
Quite a few posters in Russian and English were printed and displayed. This video about women’s holsters shows a few of the posters also.
The get-together will be on Wednesday 20th at 8pm at Iron Cactus (I am guessing the North location, will double-check). Flying into Austin on Tuesday, leaving on Friday.
Everyone kept telling me to get a Mac, so I did.

My new toy. Flush magazines hold 12 rounds of 45ACP, extended hold 14. This pistol is tighter than any custom 1911 I’ve handled.
For some reason, this photo brings the images of Spanish civil war to mind.
This rifle is a 122 year old design, updated in a minor way 84 years ago. This weapon and other arms like it still scare the antis, even if they don’t admit it yet. It takes only a very superficial knowledge of history to know the effect they had in competent hands during WW2, Korean and Vietnam conflicts. Matt Bracken’s book Enemies Foreign and Domestic describes that reality, along with the eventual anti-gunner response.
