    Selling a rifle in California as a non-resident - CA residents please chime in

    Heh, I should have been clearer. My stay in the state is only temporary :D

    Thanks Rob. I'm pretty confident that the buyer is good to go. He has all of his info and cards and whatever. And, he's made retail purchases of firearms recently.

    Cool, I'll stop by Reeds. I popped in there once as it's not very far. Yeah, I get the policy at the big stores after the guy at Bass Pro explained it better. Apparently they had been bit a few times by the issue and it was a mess.

    Selling a rifle in California as a non-resident - CA residents please chime in

    Yeah, it's crazy. I'm from Kansas City and we are the same way. I actually drove up to Iowa to buy a rifle years back. Just nuts out here but luckily it's only temporary.

    Applying to different states as non resident?

    Best advice is to do a lot of reading. My buddy subscribes to Huntin Fool I think it is when we are looking for tags. Many states have preference points so you'll need to build up points to get a shot at the better units. To answer part of your question, some states like Wyoming will hold...

    Selling a rifle in California as a non-resident - CA residents please chime in

    Long story short, I'm working again in San Jose (Bay Area) and I have a coworker out here that wants to buy a rifle from me. Well, this has been a crash course in your crazy laws and processes. After finding out that you cannot just do a private sale and you have to do a transfer through an...

    Backpacking stove wood prep

    Another luxury item but one that has multiple uses is one of those little fan things sold by Thermarest to inflate a sleeping pad. Works great to stoke a fire

    Heh, shows as $482 now. Did it always show a blued barrel? Barrel Description Blued Barrel Finish Stainless Steel That's a bit confusing as well.

    Tikka stainless 6.5 creedmoor $499.99

    The reason they are slow is the pretty much drop ship everything from the major gun distributors. That's how a lot of online gun dealers operate and how they keep the prices low. They don't have to store and manage inventory and that keeps the overhead low.

    Tikka stainless 6.5 creedmoor $499.99

    I've ordered from LockedLoaded.com before. Most of my purchases were fine but on my last one I had issues. Long story short, due to UPS screwing up the delivery to my FFL, the gun was sent back to the distributor. Neither LockedLoaded.com nor UPS would help with situation. After 2 months and...

    Supressor Question (Silencerco Omega direct thread vs thread adapter)?

    I believe that ahlgringo was talking about how thin it might make the barrel with a 1/2" thread sizing. Please correct me if I'm wrong as I don't want to speak for you. Now, since you have a 30 caliber can, why not go with 5/8" x 24. Granted, I don't know if the barrel will even support this...
