That's just not real, no one can be that stupid can they?
Shut up and reload!
That would be ALMOST worth going to see.
You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.

All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune
I have heard they come from Brazil that way to get past some regulation about short barrel's. They get cut off and crowned here.
There's a recent thread about a member who got a 856 with an uncut barrel.
PT22, 85 Poly, 865, 605, M44.... what's next?!
About six months ago I made my weekly visit to my local gun store. The guys were looking down the barrel of a .38/.357 revolver, forget which make/model (it wasn't a Taurus). I asked, they handed it to me, and there it was - a brand new gun with no rifling in the barrel. None, nada, zilch. Yeah, it can happen.
Every man should own a fine firearm, a fine knife and a fine watch.
There was a Taurus .500 S&W floating around the same way, uncut barrel. I asked one of the people I met from Taurus many years ago how that could happen. It was explained to me this way.
Some of the short barreled revolvers can not be imported with a short barrel because they don't meet the points requirement for importing. So they make them with the barrel sticking out like that to classify it as a longer barrel and get the points needed for importation. When they arrive in the USA they are cut off and crowned.
Occasionally a gun is missed and gets sent out to distributors. Normally it would get sent back however some grab them up a a potential collector item.

The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.
