I would like to address posts about guns here on SS. Please don't post guns for sale, breech modifications, de-mil cut repair, or anything else that would get the ATF excited. There are plenty of guns websites out there so go to one of those if you want to talk about guns.

The exceptions to this rule are gun rings, pintle mounts, turrets, etc... that are mounted to our trucks, APC's, and tanks. It is also OK to talk about replica weapons for the purpose of historical displays and combined MV/Gun shows.

Just use your common sense and don't post things that could put yourself or the SS site in jeopardy. Thanks!

Good idea to offer that Armyman! :-D

I'll add too, www.weaponeer.net is another that you may enjoy and we also have group buys and sell allot of new products. Much of our discusions involve building firearms from parts kits and legal work. You'll need to go to the forums page located on the left hand column in the home page.

www.1919a4.com is too

Read the all of the posts in that thread, it was dealing with more than just "Fired Brass".

It was heading off topic, and no matter how much we may or may not agree with or have interest in the gun topics, They are not to be posted on SS. No Guns, no Politics etc...

Clinto referenced this post as to why he locked the thread. Nothing in Chris's post could possibly be taken to mean that we are not allowed to discuss fired brass, only that we shouldn't post things in regards to firearms that are or may be considered illegal.

I'm really not into guns over .30 caliber, but I'm curious that someone would try to repair any weapon that's been cut or demilled and actually fire it, and then talk about it in public? I guess that's why we need rules in the first place.

My name is jason i am addicted to green and guns, they go together well. It is sad that we have to worry about making some kind of impression rather than enjoying sharing these things. How ever i understand and will follow the rules of this site.

To each his own. the same logic can be applied to demilled vehicles that have been put back on the road.. IE many many M151s

Vehicles are not covered in the constitution, however firearms are.

Wow what happened to the first amendment? Second?
Didn't our forefathers say something about the Government by the people for the people, of the people? Just words now? Beat down the people and rule with fear sounds like the old USSR. Nazi Germany, Japan? North Korea? Ect. What was the dying for?
Seems to me we are going down the wrong path.

Amen brother. I don't like it either, but this is a great site and I will not do anything to bring unwanted attention to it or it's members. There are too many great folks on here who enjoy this hobby, I'll not be the one to screw it up for them.

Brock Steel, you're first amendment rights are in place and doing well. You can talk about whatyever you want. Here you are dealing with the written word on some one else's paper. The owners have established these rules for the benefit of the site. Member Rizzo set up a site to talk about all the things that the admins disallow here if you want to join with him. I love guns a politics but I must talk about them off site.
