If you remember THIS BIG GUY, the Skull came back and I have to say, that is one impressive 300BLK hole between his eyes!!
We recently donated a 16″ upper for a MARSOC Foundation Poker Run and the winner scored a beautiful Hog at about 125yards two hours after setting it up.

Thanks Rich Grassi for the photo (could have warned a brother)
There are two separate paths to Short Barrel Rifle ownership. The first, traditional method, is to visit your local dealer that sells National Firearms Act firearms and purchase a factory “SBR”, ready made. Your dealer with transfer it to you on a Form4, with a $200 tax paid to BATFE. While your paperwork is being approved, your new SBR has to remain in the custody of the dealer until approved by BATFE. This approval can take over six months.
The second path to ownership is to “Make your own”. This involves taking an existing firearm, like an AR pistol and fill out a Form1, which is an application to “make a firearm”. Simply fill in the information about the Short Barrel Rifle you wish to make, send it off with your $200 check and wait for the approved form before replacing the stock to create the Rifle. The advantage here is that while you are waiting on your paperwork approval, the pistol is in your possession, not locked in your dealers safe for months.
300 AAC Blackout, created by Advanced Armament Corp. and Remington Arms® , is a reliable 30-caliber solution for the AR-15 platform that uses existing 5.56mm magazines for a full 30 round capacity. The highly-efficient cartridge can change between standard full power ammunition and quiet-when-suppressed subsonic loads without any adjustments needed to the firearm. 300 BLK has as much energy from a 9 inch barrel as 5.56mm does from a 14.5 inch barrel, all while having less flash, blast, and noise.
Even from a 9 inch barrel, 300 BLK with Barnes® ammunition expands to more than 50 caliber and penetrates 20 inches of 10% ballistic gelatin at 300 yards. Being 30 caliber, 300 BLK is less effected by obstacles, such as automobile glass, than 5.56mm. The gain in frontal area from 5.56mm to 30 cal is 89.1% – even more of a boost than the 60.7% size advantage that 45 Auto has over 9mm. 300 BLK is a SAAMI standard cartridge that is supported by over 150 companies.
This MSR Pistol is an exclusive to RSR Group
Several years ago Advanced Armament did a Hard Shell Jacket and they went fast . . . too fast. One of the top ten questions we get is “When are you going to do a Jacket again”. Well here ya’ go.
This “Wolf” Grey quarter zip hoody has been a favorite of our and probably yours for years. Like everything Arc’teryx LEAF, this Hoody is top notch all the way.
Functional either as a mid layer thermal garment or as a standalone piece, weathershedding, abrasion-resistant Polartec® Power Stretch® with Hardface® technology through the sleeves and hood give solid protection to areas exposed to gear and weather. Polartec® Power Stretch® fabric through the body is breathable, comfortable and armor-compatible, making the Naga Hoody a kit staple. The slim-fitting hood fits under helmet or headgear and sits cleanly on the back of the neck without bulk. Strategically placed seams in the torso construction limits friction points when wearing armor or chest rigs.
Features the AAC “Xguns” logo on the right shoulder and the Blackout Logo on the right chest
NOTE: These are designed to be tight fitting. If you are not an “Athletic Fit” or want a looser fit, order one size larger than you normally wear

Bullet Points for 41P
Written by ASA on December 5, 2013 – Comments
As the deadline for comments on ATF 41P approaches, the ASA encourages you to take a stand. In order to make your voice heard, submit comments to the Federal Register. All submissions must be made by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on Monday, December 9th. To assist you in your comments, we would like to provide talking points for reference:
41P does nothing to address crime
41P cites zero instances where NFA items were used in a crime
CLEO signoffs are:
Outdated, given computerized background checks
Undue burden on local Law Enforcement
Overworked and underfunded departments
No compensation for processing forms
Inaccurate time and cost estimates
Increased burden on individuals purchasing passport photos and fingerprints on trusts – surpassing ATF estimates
ATF estimates $8 and 50 minutes for passport photos and $24 and 60 minutes for fingerprints
Underestimation of the number of individuals in each trust and legal entity
ATF estimates two people per trust
Longer wait times for NFA transfers
Increase workload for understaffed NFA Branch
Current wait times are already inexcusable
41P will exacerbate the problem
Too many unanswered questions
What if a beneficiary is a child?
What if a secondary beneficiary or trustee lives in a restricted state or jurisdiction?
What if a secondary beneficiary or trustee lives in a legal state, but a jurisdiction where CLEOs refuse to sign?
The ASA encourages all individuals to submit comments to BATFE on the proposed rule change. If you would prefer to submit a customizable form letter, please see our previous post: How to Comment Against ATF 41P.

Proposed change: LINK
The American Silencer Associations plea for your assistance:
The ASA needs your help.On August 29, 2013, the Obama Administration issued an executive action that seeks to amend the transfer of NFA firearms. Known as ATF 41P, it was published in the Federal Register on September 9. The public comment period, which lasts 90 days, will come to a conclusion on Monday, December 9.
To help, please voice your opinion by submitting a comment to the Federal Register. Directions, and two of our draft comments for individuals, can be viewed here:
HOW TO COMMENT AGAINST 41P
Included in ATF 41P is an amendment to require a Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) signoff for all NFA transfers, including those conducted by a trust or legal entity. When the National Firearms Act of 1934 was signed into law, computerized background checks did not exist. At that time, the CLEO signoff was the only means by which individuals applying for a transfer of an NFA item could be vetted.
Since 1934, technology has come full circle. The subjective approval from local Law Enforcement is no longer a necessary method to prevent criminals from obtaining NFA items. According to the proposed amendments, “ATF conducts its own background checks of individuals applying to make and receive NFA firearms. In addition to transmitting fingerprints to the FBI for a criminal history check, ATF routinely queries the following databases and indexes:
• National Crime Information Center
• TECS (formerly named the Treasury Enforcement Communication System)
• National Law Enforcement Telecommunications System
• Interstate Identification Index
• National Instant Criminal Background Check System”
The purpose of using these databases and indexes is to offer objective criteria on which to base the approval or refusal of an application for an NFA firearm. In stark contrast, the purpose of extending the CLEO signoff requirement to all applicants is a calculated effort by the administration to institute a subjective and often politically motivated method to hinder the ownership of NFA items throughout the country.
ATF 41P also expands the definition of a responsible person (RP), and requires that all RP’s submit fingerprints, passport photos, and to a background check for all transfers. While the ASA does support background checks, it unequivocally opposes CLEO signoff requirements for any NFA transfer. Additionally, without offering any monetary compensation to local Law Enforcement Agencies for their time, this onerous proposal will unnecessarily burden these agencies with yet another layer of bureaucratic paperwork.
