  1. Pistol Permits
    I'm not sure if the serial number is the one stamped on the frame forward of the trigger guard (it's a muzzle loader). I bought it years ago, but I didn't think I was going to actually use it, but now I think I'd like to. I never got any real documents for it from the seller, which was cabela's...

    So now that the 7 round thing has been struck (and prince king wanna be andy says it is struck) how many rounds can you put into a REGISTERED M1 carbine magazine????

    When I was growing up, Dad kept an antique S&W 38 SA Second Model in his sock drawer, and when he wasn't home I used to play with it. Sometimes I'd keep it in my room for days or weeks before I'd put it back, or my Mom would find it and return it. We never had any ammo for it, but I was once at...
