  1. Ignoring the Duty To Inform, this is definately going to be used against us CCW holders during the current court hearings. Drinking and randomly shooting a gun out the window does not paint a good picture for CCW holders.
  2. Getting a non-threaded barrel is easy. I'd definitely consider it as having a form of a shroud for #3. The question is does it actually violate #1? If so is there another chassis option that does not have mag holder VFG?

    Right, each location will have a different set of Repeater frequencies you can use in your area. You could also just have 2 sets of CHIRP files ready to go and make sure you have the ability to program them quickly in a SHTF situation. Maybe dedicate at least one radio for each location with specific programming, and then when you get there you can re-program the radios you take with you with the programming specific to that location. More expensive radios have the ability to program them via your phone app and BT connection.
  4. Is the front mag holder considered a forward grip? Is that the reason it would be considered AOW? If you were to get a chassis with a pistol brace that did not have front mag holder would it be GTG?
  5. I thought they were illegal too, but I don't see where? Again something with a pistol brace, not a stock.
  6. Something like the Flux Raider for P320 with a pistol brace? https://fluxdefense.com/shop/raider-x

    If someone is setting up a repeater, Echolink capability would be cool. Obviously don't count on the EchoLink part during a SHTF situation when internet may be down. https://echolink.org/

    I was just thinking for now, we can post up the frequencies and names of the repeaters you can access. Ie: W2NJR [147.285000/+0.600/141.3] Martinsville WB2NQV [147.375000/+0.600/151.4] Cherryville N3MSK [445.725000/-5.000/136.5] Martinsville KQ2H [449.175000/-5.000] Martinsville N3MSK9 [449.575000/-5.000/151.4] Bloomsbury WQWL772 [462.600000/+5.000/D445/D445] WQWL772 [462.625000/+5.000/D445/D445]

    Maybe this is something we could setup. Establish a frequency (or frequencies) and check in/monitor times to use during a SHTF situation. Who is interested in participating in something like this?

    This is a very good point. It is not like there is a channel/frequency that people are monitering in case of emergencies. And if you do reach someone they may not know how to help. In a SHTF situation, if you are looking for news/updates how will you know the info you are getting from as stranger over the radio is valid and not disinformation? If you have friends and family in the area you want to keep in touch with without cell phones and setup protocols to communicate (ie get on the radio every day at these times) it may be useful. What is the area you need to cover and who do you want to communicate with?

    Briefly. Most people say at least $10k so I stopped there. You could also start a local club with dues to pay for the repeater. I guess on the cheap side, you could try to do a 50w mobile unit and big antenna running off of a battery with solar. But you'll want enough batteries to last multiple days of bad weather and then enough solar to charge them back up in a day. Still a couple grand.

R. 5013 - Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act of 2006 (known as the Vitter Amendment) H. R. 5441
  14. https://www.reuters.com/technology/cybersecurity/fbi-says-chinese-hackers-preparing-attack-us-infrastructure-2024-04-18/ "An ongoing Chinese hacking campaign known as Volt Typhoon has successfully gained access to numerous American companies in telecommunications, energy, water and other critical sectors, with 23 pipeline operators targeted, FBI Director Christopher Wray said" "China is developing the "ability to physically wreak havoc on our critical infrastructure at a time of its choosing. Its plan is to land low blows against civilian infrastructure to try to induce panic." I think this is actually just an elaborate Chinese marketing campaign to sell more radios and cheap survival gear.
