If the concept of heading on down to the local Home Depot and transforming $100 worth of random pipe bits into a killing machine doesn’t appeal to you, you’re a frikkin' pansy. Also, you’re probably sane and will live significantly longer than I will.

Nonetheless you disgust me, and I take comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will be nowhere near as humorous as mine.

The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Thanks. That is a great reference site.

"In the name of the most holy and undivided Trinity."

(Opening sentence, Treaty of Paris, 1783, ending the Revolutionary War with Great Britain.)

"“Providence has given
to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as
the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and
prefer Christians for their rulers.”

(John Jay, First Supreme Court Chief Justice, one of the authors of The Federalist Papers, and signer of Treaty of Paris, 1783.)

Now I don't hafta ask a stupid "AOW or SBR" question about the next "Shorty" project

Form 1, $200 bucks, and off to work I go!!! Not a pistol, not a rifle, not under AWB rules/regs...WOW!

Life couldn't be better. "Is that a FAL-lump under your coat, or are you just happy to see me"? The toughest part will be making the CCW holster

All or Nothing!
Senator McCarthy was right! and as always......FYB!

Question ATF Letters confusing

Interesting opinions.

So after reading the opinions regarding classification of the FAL G series I am a little confused.

Is an FAL with a serial number of G9XX exempted from NFA requirements?

Can anyone impart a little wisdom?

Serial number G-9XX is within the BATFE approved SN range of G-848 through G-1017. As such, the G Series you have inquired about is exempt from the NFA provided it has not been modified with an auto-sear and/or FA selector.
In other words, unless it's been modified it's perfectly legal for you to own as would any semi-auto rifle provided you meet Federal and State requirements for firearms ownership.
If you should have any other questions just E-Mail or PM.
You're good-to-go.
