    .338 "Thunder Sausage" Thread

I thought my .300 WinMag...

    Rental Property / Legal Question

    Not looking for a full on legal answer but wondering if anyone might have experienced this. My tenant apparently brought in a "landscaper" (friend of theirs) to do some trimming and cleanup.

    Not "assault rifles" if its for LEO's
