How does California still have an illegal pot market, post-legalization?

I'm guessing taxes and government regulations

I honestly don't know, but if it's anything like the ultra-sloth-speed legalization and establishment of a legal business infrastructure took in Massachusetts, I'd imagine I could take a guess....

Also, having conducted a retail inventory of a Bass Pro, the headline quote is a whole lotta hyperbole....

Easy answer?  It's cheaper.

/also some "Don't want to/can't be seen buying it publicly" types
//but it's mostly because it's cheaper
///some people just don't give a fark about anything else if they can spend less on it

Ah, Methdesto. And to think, I almost considered moving there.

The sad and stupid thing about this is that if they were a little more thorough and had better planning they could have been licensed to legitimately deal in both of those products.

How does the 2a shall not be infringed crowd feel about folks dealing guns out of their home? The government infringed on the mans right right here didn't they. ?

Is that an M1 carbine in the lower right corner? Seems oddly out of place amongst the other weapons.

CSB: Prior to 2015 or so, the most common firearm to be found on the shoulder of a Mexican soldier guarding a non sensitive area would have been an M1 carbine.  They have all been up gunned since to the M4s that that Navy response troops carried (now have SCARs) but it was like Getting dropped into a John Wayne era movie.

Don't get too excited, those things were well used rust and everything.  Imagine, carried every day for 50-60 years.  No safe queens at all.

Pre-Clinton there were a LOT of home based FFLs.   Pre-internet you'd get a copy of Shotgun News or one of the big dealer warehouse catalogs, comb through it looking for what you wanted, give the guy cost plus 10%, and wait a week or two for your call that your order came in.  Go by, do the paperwork and go home.

But since the purpose of a FFL is to engage in business, Clinton's ATFE started ensuring that people they were issuing FFLs to actually had business licenses, etc. and were in fact intending to be in the business to some degree.  So a lot of the home based FFLs closed down, since they couldn't get zoning, etc. to run a home based business.

When I was a little kid, I always liked to pile up my Halloween/xmas/bday haul into one proud "display".

Seeing cops do it?

If you look at a map, most of the dispensaries there are clustered in just a couple of areas, mostly southern California. That leaves large parts of the state without reasonable access to a legal dispensary. People aren't going to drive for hours when they can just get it from their local guy.

States also limit the number of licenses and even if you can get one, it's a huge PITA and super expensive. Individual cities and counties also keep dispensaries out.

They legalize it then make it so difficult and expensive to do legally that people just do it illegally.

Last Bass Pro I was in was the original one in Springfield Missouri.  Wall-to-wall guns and its own indoor shooting range.  Pretty sure they'll be able to prevail in the Great Massachusetts/Missouri War.

The point was, since you missed it, that what they showed in the preview picture for that video was literally like, a 4 foot section of what a Bass Pro carries.

Well, 80 guns might actually qualify as an arsenal. Better than 4 guns that the media usually labels as an 'arsenal.'

Which is why I have the folks at Alachua Farm and Lumber handle my transfers these days. I have always enjoyed taking people from out of town in there. Them as we pull in the parking lot: "This is gun shop?" Me: "You'll see once you get inside."

Love AFL.

But Pawn Pro in Newberry is good.  Just avoid Picketts.

In 1986, you could buy a Glock 17 just about anywhere, including Walmart for $509 to $529.  You got the gun, a mag in the gun, the tupperware, and a mag in the tupperware.

Unless you bought from Picketts.  Then you got the gun, the tupperware, and a mag in the tupperware.  $540.  OK, little higher price.  Where's the other mag?  "Oh, you want extra mags? We got a bin full here, $40 each"

Most of my recent transfers have been bare receivers, but any time I order a pistol and have to wait I do it via GTR since I'm a member there - no CCW permit, so I get the full 5+ days wait.  But they have the range, and allow conjugal visits.

I've got a buddy transferring some NFA toys at the moment, we get to do a conjugal visit with them once a month or so.  BRAAAAP!

I have a "Bass Pro Shops" t-shirt that I got at the Memphis Pyramid. I wear suspenders, so the B is covered and it looks like it says "Ass Pro Shops."

That's it. That's my story.

You should absolutely watch Murder Mountain.  The Green Triangle accounts for a staggeringly high percentage of the overall marijuana used in the nation.  I can't recall the exact percentage, but it was between 60-80%.

Small time collection.  Read about the raids in Fresno or Stockton.


According to billboards $90/ounce is what the advertised price is. 6% discount = 17 ounces for the price of 16.  Even J. Spicoli Esq., gets the idea.

Feh. Bass Pro Shop has a better fishing tank to jump into.
