    How many different locations did you buy your 6 guns? How many of those 6 guns did you immediately resell? To prohibited persons ?

    Depends on how quiet your area normally is. Real quiet, you can hear the hovering helo. If it finally leaves, and your door is still intact, yer good.
    There are only two kinds of guns. Those I have and those I want.

    Probably. Until one of them turned up laying at a shooting scene.

    My understanding is if you buy more than one pistol at one time, they report it to the ATF. If the pistols are on ATF's unofficial list of cheap guns favored for this type of thing, you will probably get a knock on your door wanting to see everything you bought that day. Just to make sure you aren't reselling.

    ie, buy two CZs, HKs, or 226s in one day, they probably ignore you as a collector. Buy two Hipoints or G2Cs and you will probably get a visit.

    Oh, and if you know a McDonalds where I can make $20/hour ($18k in 5 months), please let me know immediately.

    It's more suspicious when you buy 10 Hi Points for example.

    Some say what McD serves as food is criminal, but show me where anyone got sent up the river for 20 years for serving it. Net net, better off slinging burgers. That said, the perp doesn’t seem the type of article that has developed the habits of showing up to work.

    I think it's suspicious when they're walking around, talking on a cell phone and telling whoever they are talking to what's available. And yes, I have witnessed this first hand.
    Thank you for keeping me safe.

    Yeah, snapping up all the good deals and inventory is a crime these days!
