If you don't shoot it, get rid of it. I met a guy a couple years ago who had a pre ban full auto mp5 with a suppressor. He said he could sell it for 50k.Prices have skyrocketed over the last few years. $21k M16s from just 5~ years ago are now pushing $40k. HK Sears are north of $50k. It's clown world.
Hold on to them as the supply is finite or time to let them go?
Just like the hearing protection act was going to deregulate suppressors (6?) years ago. Or daddy Trump and Jr. we're going to deregulate MGs when he was in office.I'd say sell now... The NFA, GCA, and Hughes Amendment are fixing to get destroyed by the Supreme Court very soon.
I'd say sell now... The NFA, GCA, and Hughes Amendment are fixing to get destroyed by the Supreme Court very soon, thanks to Matt Hoover's Auto KeyCard case (and several other cases like the Bumpstock case) that are heading to the Supreme Court right now, and the GOA and FPC's lawyers challenging the NFA on face-value of Constitutionality based off the Bruen case's clarifier of having to prove "text, history, & tradition". So, the old phrases, "Sell your truck while it's still running..." and "Buy low, sell high" should apply appropriately. If the NFA and/or GCA get obliterated by the SC, then price values of NFA items are going to plummet, because new production units will be widely available once again (pre-86).
Personally, if I had any, i'd just hang onto them. Then again, I was born 11 days before the ban...So, I never got to experience the free world. Although my dad had a few friends who had a bunch of them, so I got to shoot them growing up in the 80's and 90's.
I waited and waited for many years, and it never happened... So when the election went to shit 2 years ago, I knew it was time. Now I'm waiting on suppressors #8-10 to be built. It gets addicting. And if it gets ruled unconstitutional, I'd sure love to get all my tax stamp money back. $2,000 would damn-near buy me a newly-relegalized 4-position MP5-SD, or an M16 lower.I admire your optimism but I highly doubt that will happen. Just like we all hoped for the HPA to pass - but I’m still shelling out $200 for suppressor tax stamps.
Don’t mistake this for a lack of hoping it will. I know there are a lot of MG owners who want the status quo to remain - I’m not one. I’ll lose my investment today if it means $2500 MP5s tomorrow - or even $10,000 MP5s.
That’s a no brainer.
Not necessarily machine guns, but things are getting spicy for the ATF and NFA...
please don't give that clickbaiting shithead any more views.
I appreciate he's trying to discuss certain things, but the misleading video titles and other poorly-explained material are really starting to cause a problem.
Been saying that for years.Regarding our long game, we need to introduce new folks to the sport. Help other shooters learn to be responsible, be nice to the new person at the range trying to figure things out, not be an asshole and instead kindly offer advice or correction when needed. The more people that understand how firearms work the less voters can be fooled by deceptive statement from the media or politicians.
