Not necessarily. Depends on your local laws.

Gun laws do NOT apply to private sales.

OvrrDrive, do I officially have dibs on the SKS if you don't make a face-to-face sale?

Assuming the deal goes as planned, Aseras has bought the .45.

Zangmonkey, if it comes to shipping it out, you have dibs. Although, let me be clear in that I would much rather sell it face to face. Shipping it is a last resort. But if I do, it's yours.

Exactly. Here in Alaska, you only have to be 18. Federal is of course 21, so basically I can't BUY a handgun myself, but if someone gives me one, I'm cool (which is what my uncle did 2 christmases ago...). August I can finally buy my own handgun (I'm getting a Walther P99 40SW if anyone cares)...

Im also look to buy a handgun. Im almost 21. I live in NYC so getting a handgun would probably take about 25 years (longer than the time i would of spend in prison if i killed a guy with a gun )

You stated that you shot a dog 300 yards away and missed only by half a ft? Thats really hard to believe. Im not even sure if the bullet will travel 300 yeards let alone hit something and missing the target by half a ft.

There are snipers with confirmed kills out to thousands of yards. It isn't impossible. Granted, that is with high end optics and long rifles, but I doubt 300 yards is impossible for a handgun, especially since the bullets travel faster than the speed of sound (about 331 meters per second).

A 22 rimfire is deadly to 5 miles. Wouldn't you think a 7.62x39 would be a little more powerfull than that?

I assure you it is quite possible. While I didn't measure the distance out, there was a 1-2 second lead time from when I shot until the bullet hit the ground. You're just going to have to take my word for it I guess.

Only if I can't sell it to someone in person. There is a possibility that Aseras may buy both of them.

Let me give it a few weeks to see if I can hand it to someone then I'll definitely ship it. I don't know what they charge, but by the time you add shipping to either weapon it probably won't be that good of a deal.

AFAIK a normal 22 is only dangerous up to just over 3 miles. Dangerous as in causing harm.. not deadly. It's probably only deadly ~ 2/3 mile. But then again the golden bb/bullet theory holds true. you could get lucky. that's why you always play it safe and don't take chances.

Now as far as accuracy. the 457 here is a .45 acp round so it should be great to well over 300 yards. assuming the shooter can aim. Really though these handguns are not for hitting something far away the are for oh shit factor and up close and personal defense.

Actually, the gun i shot to that range was the SKS, not the .45 ACP. While I would expect the 45 to have plenty of knockdown power at that range, shooting an open sighted handgun to that range would probably be a waste of ammo. Had I not stopped shooting when I did, it was just a matter of rounds until I connected with the SKS.

See you next weekend.

Aseras is first in line and I should know for sure by this coming weekend if he's taking it.

Edit. I have a second in line on another forum... Would you like third?
