Most dealers across State lines that I have dealt with will only ship to an FFL holder.If you have your C&R license you can buy guns on line and have them shipped directly to you. They must fall in the classification of Curio and Relic but many of these guns (such as M1 garands) make fine hunting rifles. I have seen and heard of people hunting with an SKS.
The C&R license is cheap ($35) and usually only takes about 2 to 3 months to get.
Yes they are! And a good choice for a survival firearm as well. While it is not easy, you could even make gunpowder and caps (ir use a rock lock and you can eliminate that part)LOVE MUZZLE LOADING! Great fun!
I don't hunt much with them, but I LOVE shooting them!
I do a lot of pistols, everything from single barrel flint locks to civil war replica revolvers!
Just a bunch of fun for very little money!
That was indeed the first '44 magnum' and wasn't surpassed in power until very recently. And you should have seen it when we would shoot a 58 cal rifle, throwing a very big, heavy slug, out to 500 yards, hitting a pie plate size target and putting the slug right on through the pole holding it up.Remember, a replica of the 'Walker Colt' throws a heavier bullet faster than a modern .44 Magnum!
So anyone tells you they aren't deadly or accurate have rocks in their heads!
