Wow.

Now I'm wondering if I made the right choice when I traded in my Bugatti Type 57S Atlantic under Obama's "Cash For Clunkers" program.

Hitler refused to produce it, so it produced itself.
Enemy soldiers consider themselves honored to be shot by it.
Police officers refuse to destroy it, purely out of respect.

It is the most interesting firearm in the world.

vossiewulf: St_Francis_P: You know who else was a fan of the MP-44?

Well he wasn't a fan before he was a fan. Which is why they called it the MaschinenPistole 44 when it was developed, because Hitler liked submachineguns and they wanted to hide that it was an assault rifle. Then he gave it a spin and ordered it into production as the Stg-44, and probably remarked to everyone around how brilliant he was for anticipating the need for this weapon.


You're making it difficult to properly Godwin this thread.

Jim_Callahan: A German can swap magazines 17 times a minute without slowing? Wow, I guess they really are the superior race.


Do you also get prickly when watching drag racing when they say that top fuelers can go 300+ miles per hour, when you've been waiting 300 miles away for over two hours and no dragsters have shown up?

The firing rate for the Stg44 is 500 rpm. Getting into the practical firing rate to satisfy people obsessed with "gun grabbers" would have soaked up half of that report's allotted time.

macdaddy357: Usually, guns that were used in crimes and rusty, non firing garbage are what it turned in at these things.


Yes a central Illinois gun club and local NRA branch did this at a Chicago buy back. Used the money from the donated POS guns to buy new guns and to fund a youth gun safety retreat. Was on fark, but I heard about it locally first.

tallen702: Look again bubba: Link

There's no national registry for everyday run-of-the-mill firearms (aka Non-NFA firearms) However, for weapons that fall under the national firearms act of 1968 (and the subsequent modifications/additions/etc.) such as machine guns, yes, there is one and it is called "The National Firearm Registration and Transfer Record"


I'm only calling you out on it because you called the other guy bubba:

The NFA (National Firearms Act) was enacted in 1934 and restricted the sale of fully automatic weapons through taxation and a registry. The 1968 Firearm Owners Protection Act prohibited the registration of any new fully automatic firearms for civilian use, a de facto ban on the manufacture or sale of new fully automatic weapons to the general public.

If you're going to be anal about it, you better be right.

The gun, developed in 1944, holds a 30-round magazine and can shoot 500 rounds per minute. Cavanna said every modern assault rifle produced today is based on this design.

"You could kill a solider back then, and if the captain of your fighting unit signed off on it, you could send that gun home to your family or kid brother or cousin," Cavanna said. "Anything you wanted. Her father, who was a World War II army man, had brought this gun home from the European theater."

I miss this America.

NFA: She can't legally possess that gun. Unless it's registered with that ATF in her name, it's illegal for her to possess it. The cops were right to say that it's a treasure and shouldn't be destroyed but it's an illegal gun. The penalty is 10 years in federal prison. Even if the gun was registered in her husband's for father's name, she can't possess it without having having it transfered to her name. Meanwhile it has to be in the possession of a class 3 dealer until the transfer occurs.

If the gun was never registered, it can't ever be registered.


Not sure if Im being trolled here. There is no ATF registry.

I'm assuming she has her approved Form 4 with a tax stamp.
