    yeah i do enough shit of questionable legality in the name of activism that if i'm going to build a rifle i need to make sure i am squeaky fucking clean about it. a couple of the cops in my neighborhood recognize me from protest action and a non-compliant rifle would be an easy excuse to put me away on felony charges.

    ^Obama made it harder to get lead in CA...

    Getting ammo from NV and driving in is illegal, first offence is only $100, so very well worth it. However there are many times people checking for CA plates in NV at FFLs, calling it in. I have a brother outside of LV, but it still makes no sense to drive 8hrs when I can fly for ~$150 round trip from SMX. I do not fly with ammo due to the law, it's asking for trouble, so I buy when in state, or send my brother a couple K for ammo for the weekend. Flying my guns to and from for competitions with my brother is a PITA, as airport security is usually clueless. One asked me to handle the Firearm in public view and prove it was unchambered with no mag. With all the fear around firearms, I am not about to show it at the check in stall...

    can you get ammo from out of state or do they card you in NV to see if you're not californian?
    also making your own is still good or new restrictions on that?

    i'm reminded going to gun shows like 15 years ago and walking out with like 5,000 rounds of whatever.
    now i assume that you basically pre buy ammo and have them sent to a gunstore so you can pick them up after a 20 day wait and background check?

    do they have a serial number on rounds yet?

    no worries. i'm on-call operations engineer and shit has been going down this week so i get a day off next wednesday when another team member takes the wheel. the FFL that has my lower is out in livermore, a pleasant drive from SF with empty freeways, and it's going to be the first time i drive the E36M3 i just bought. i feel like that's going to be a good day

    my army buddy and i are working on a build in a google spreadsheet, and he enjoys this in the same way i like helping friends shop for cars

    interesting bit of kit he showed me is the patriot pin- i really like this as a solution for california compliance. this is about/almost how fast i reload with an army-issued M4

    thankfully one of my deployment buddies out in TX is a huge gun nut and enjoys helping someone shop for a rifle just like i like helping my friends shop for cars.

    did you look at the rainier lower i posted? the feature is easily removable with an allen key if i want to leave the state and not be annoyed by that. i am actually building the rifle and want it to be legal so we can all wish for relaxed gun laws in this state or we can go shopping and find something that meets our needs/desires. 10-round mags are more of an annoyance to me. if you don't like gun laws, vote out the people writing them. that's just reality

    R3Z3N: rainier arms lower. not that i'd ever *do* such a thing, but the maglock device is removable with an allen key...

    Rainier arms does make some nice things. I have a fully ambi lower from them that I am saving for a 6.5 grendel build for longer 3 gun matches in Vegas when I visit my brother. Need to be able to reach out easier. Most ambis seem to use the nord? mag release which I dislike.
