Default Re: Found these...Whats my obligation if any?

Comments about "large quanities" and "military grade" are duly noted, and thanks for your more expert perspectives on that. I was thinking that 50-caliber would be considered military grade, but I definitely bow to those with the true experience and knowledge in this area.

Curious. I'm used to hearing 50-caliber in association with machine guns and sniper rifles. What would be some of the non-military applications. Large game?

Not much hunting is done with a .50 BMG. The rifles are too heavy- A Barrett 99 single shot, bolt action is about 25 pounds. The round is very powerful and likely to cause excessive damage to meat. Not practical for hunting except in very unique circumstances.

The majority of owners use them for long range target shooting, 1000 to 2000 yards.

Very expensive to own and shoot regularly. However, if you ever get the opportunity to fire one, do it. You will never forget it.

Military grade small arms ammo is pretty restricted. Limited to non-expanding bullets, unlike civilian ammo and is no more powerful for a given cartridge. They do include armor piercing and phosphorous tracers which don't really have practical non-combat applications IMO.

Firearms like the .50 BMG (Browning Machine Gun) are used almost exclusively for target shooting. The round is very good for extreme long range shooting. I'd personally prefer a .338, but just because I personally have no interest in one doesn't mean I disapprove of them.

.50 cal for civilian use, like others have said, is typically limited to long range target shooting.

It’s an exciting experience to fire a .50 cal, but like Chuck, I prefer the .338 Lapua. Far less recoil and comparable distance. But if you need to disable a truck, stick with the .50 cal

Under 18 U.S.C. § 922(d) and (g), there are nine categories of individuals prohibited from purchasing or simply possessing ammunition.. Continue reading at: Federal and State Ammunition Laws | Gun Belts Blog.

Seeing the residence is not occupied, position would be the vendor's responsibility. Safe storage would include the agency and brokers responsibility as well.

Gun laws in the United States are found in a number of state and federal statutes. "These laws" regulate the manufacture, trade, possession, transfer, record keeping, transport, and destruction of firearms, ammunition, and firearms accessories.

Moreover, certain types of ammunition, such as armor-piercing handgun ammunition, 50 caliber rounds, and Black Talon bullets, pose a particular danger to the public and to law enforcement, and serve no legitimate sporting purpose. Strict controls on the manufacture, transfer, and possession of these types of ammunition can help promote public safety. Further details about particular types of ammunition are included in the state law section below.

FEDERAL AND STATE RESTRICTIONS ON AMMUNITION TRANSFER AND POSSESSION

No one that this is alarming? No wonder why there is so much gun violence stateside. I would inform state and federal authorities.

You're a maroon ^ (as Bugs would say)

Try to find something you actually know something about and talk about that rather that cut and pasting propaganda without crediting the source.

So when was the last time a police officer was shot with a .50 BMG? What exactly makes 25 Y. O. Black Talon so much more dangerous than any other modern expanding bullet? We just described a completely legitimate sporting purpose for the. 50 BMG which proves your cut and paste propaganda false. Moreover (the word is not mindlessly cut and pasted this time) the subjective term "sporting purpose" has never been a criteria under the Second Amendment and has no legitimate meaning in this context.

Keep your stupid anti-American political views in the NFE section.

Is that why you were ejected from the orgaization?

Political debate and anti-American rhetoric by Canadians belongs in the NFE section.

Mr. Yeung has a history of plagiarizing the words of others, including propaganda, and posting it without credit to the original source as if it were his own.

I think you're both ethically challenged.

Keep the political crap in the NFE.

Lol. Absolute bully pulpit. Why you go after Mr. Cooke?

I give an answer to what I would do without regret, seeing the sport hunter loves ammunition, Lol!!!! Records are kept to prevent ammunition from getting into the wrong hands.

I shot long arms and handguns. This is not typical. As a concerned citizen I would let the authorities know.

What records are kept and by whom?

Had you simply stated what you would do, I would have simply considered you foolish and overstepping your role as a home inspector by being nosey about someone's personal property, which is clearly not part of the home.

But, you didn't stop there, now did you? You went on to post false propaganda that you plagiarized and presented as though it was your own and topped it off with a moronic anti-American political comment that had absolutely no relevance to the original topic. This is why I consider you dishonest in addition to foolish.

Again, you're clueless on the topic. Keep your mindless political crap in the NFE forum.
