It's just painful when you look on Gunbroker, find a fairly decent deal on something you want, only to discover that the rear end in a top hat on the other end doesn't want to sell to you because you committed the unspeakable crime of living in the state of California.

It's actually understandable with firearms because California makes it somewhat inconvenient for gunshops to import guns into the state, requiring a registration process, and I imagine fees, with the CA DoJ. If they don't see it as worthwhile to deal with that, fine, that's their prerogative. But for some backwoods fudd to deny me ammo, or brass or loving snakeskin because I happen to live in a state that passed an AWB before I was even old enough to vote is absolutely ridiculous.

Stop being so selfish that you must keep them alive that little bit longer to make yourself feel better, just let them die peacefully.

No, I'm betting it's the hardest thing anyone could ever have to do, but I'll tell you what. I can think of nothing more selfish than prolonging the suffering of your child who has no chance at living a life that isn't a brief period of pain of suffering, the culmination of which is the relief of death.

Could I make this decision if I had to? I have no idea, I've never had to and I pray to God I never do, but regardless if I could do it or not, I know what would be the right thing to do.

My father's a surgeon, and just based on what he's told me about decisions made by people dealing with terminally ill relatives, people on long term life support with no real chance of coming out of comas, and care for elderly relatives who have been on long term life support for years, I'll almost guarantee that the decision was made because of religious issues.

It's basically the "every life is sacred" argument. It's a god-given life and it's the responsibility of anyone who is able to to ensure that the sick person lives as long as possible. Before everyone gets all smug goon on this silly spaghetti-monster in the sky religion/superstition, a lot of this kind of Christian rationale is the philosophical basis for what became modern medical ethics.

It's a really, REALLY goddamned complicated issue and involves some really basic questions about what your personal beliefs are. My family knows my wishes on this sort of thing, and I know theirs - we've got the background through my father that we all want to be pretty clear on this and we all pretty much agree on not taking excessive measures to prolong life if there is no real hope of recovery of some kind. I'd personally rather not burden my family for decades as a vegetable. Again, this is a really, REALLY personal decision and I'm not making a judgment on anyone who chooses otherwise.

I really don't know what I'm trying to get at with this, but it's a hosed up, horrible situation to be in and while I might believe that I know how I'd behave were that my child, I'm just not going to make a moral judgment on what anyone else faced with that problem does.

From what I've seen there are two modes of thought among dealers: Punish the buyers for living in the most anti-gun state in the Union or try to sell as much as possible to undermine the political gun opposition. Most sentiment I see is in the former camp.

I will say it's a bitch to sell there however. Case: A friend recently sold an MP28 magazine on Gunbroker. The buyer ended up being in CA. MP28 mags hold 32 rounds. The friend called the buyer who when asked if it was legal, said he wasn't sure, let me check and call back. He calls back and says ship the mag body only, I'll send more money for the rest of it, and ship that separately. Oh and this is for a display anyway. The friend is now irked because:
1. this means two trips to the PO
2. he still may be breaking the law
3. the mag is a valuable and historically significant piece and is to be part of a dummy gun???

Mag body shipped, additional shipping money for other parts were never received.

I'm afraid gunbroker auctions are going to have to be no CA for me anyway. Legal compliance is the most troublesome part.

It's beyond that. What's the current market value of a post-ban Chinese SKS? $200? He's got about $250 in accessories on there. $300 tops. So optimistically he could ask $450-$500 for it... but he still wouldn't get it because it's still just an SKS.

Where you see this poo poo REALLY badly is the Arfcom EE. Yeah, you can get good deals there, but for every $20 carry handle there's 10 of them being sold for $5 less than what it costs to order one new - and you'd better be loving living at your computer to score the good deals, because a lot of those get bought up and then resold for a fast profit.

The best one was a few days ago when I was looking at stocks. Some guy had a Magpul UBR up there. He mentioned specifically that he "had it NOW" as opposed to all the places that were backordered and justified his price by pointing to what some local shop near him was selling them for. I think he wanted something like $270 for it, "virtually NIB."

The killer is that if you check off the "I'm a gunsmith without an inventory" box at Brownells you can get the same one from them for ~$230 after the discount. Yeah, it'll be a backorder, but magpul products from major online retailers like Brownells have actually been shipping after a few weeks of waiting. I just got a backordered MIAD from brownells after about 10 days on the wait list.

I mean, I guess if you need it NOW and don't mind paying an extra $40 for it, but jesus . . .

Oh yeah, when I looked at it again today it was SPF. Every minute a sucker and all that.

I think this knife is good mostly for show or display. The blade is on the thin side and I agree with a previous reviewer that it looks like a strong guy might be able to break it, albeit with considerable effort. I would not want to have to rely on this in the wild, but since I rarely get out from grandma's basement, it's not an issue for me. I'm giving it five bullets nevertheless, since it's obviously a cheapie and anyone who expects a top quality knife for $10 probably shouldn't be buying anything on the internet anyway. Plus, you get a cool-looking knife with a swastika on it, which will go nicely with a matching helmet.
