I dunno. Looks good to me.

Rich - you can own a 20mm or even a howitzer as long as you have the Destructive Device tax stamp which comes after a rigorous background check & local law enforcement approval. The 20mm Vulcan ammo is $9.50 for training ammo & $15.00 per tracer. If you handload, you can bring it down to around $5.00

Some people question why someone needs one. The same can be said for a Ferrari. LOL

That's an interesting loophole. So someone could get approval from the sheriff's department in Backwoods, Arkansas to purchase it and then move to Philadelphia. As long as the buyer doesn't act as a straw purchaser and sell to someone else, is there anything the cops in Philly can do to keep a cannon out of their neighborhood?

Why, do you think someone is going to do that to shoot their neighbor, or rob a Wawa, when it's much easier to just use a shotgun/pistol?

No loophole. I didn't make myself clear. You Tax Stamp for the weapon is issued by the Treasury Department after the backgroundinvestigation and approval by the ATF. The local law enforcement approval is in addition to the Federal approval. You cannot transfer the weapon to another individual without going through a specially licensed dealer and the new owner going through the same process.

People who own these weapons have been vigorously cleared and the weapons are closely tracked. I have never heard of a legally owned NFA weapon being used in a crime.

Well, it'd be hard to hide under your coat.

I think the question was not about selling the weapon on to someone else, but the same owner moving to the jurisdiction of a different local law enforcer - do they have to get approval from their new local authority, or does the old approval transfer?

Just curious - suppose you do get one of these monsters ... then what? I could imagine a few fun afternoons blowing shit away on a firing range, but aside from a rather expensive kind of fun, what else could you do with it?

Why collect cars you can't drive? Why collect teapots you can't make tea in?

I did think of one use ... you know the eccentric English gentleman who built a giant trebuchet which hurls burning pianos?


Skeet shooting.


Burning piano. Giant gun. Boom.
Okay, now I understand.

Ok. My misunderstanding. To travel with any National Firearm Act weapon or even to move your residence to another state, you must have prior approval by the ATF (BATFE).

These large bore weapons are used in long range competitions. There is also a big machinegun/cannon shoot every year in KY. Like I mentioned earlier, a primary reason for owning these is the investment value.

Nonsense, the primary reason is boner value.

Just so long as their training includes being without. Hacking, jamming, EMP, and other countermeasures come to mind. Also, a larger and larger amount of the electronics used by our military are made outside of the US, by countries we may be in conflict with, directly or indirectly, in the future. Can you imagine a chip in a networked wireless system crashing on receipt of a coded signal?
