    According to wikipedia there was a legal loophole (now closed) on the penalty when you re caught in one of these

     

    When semi-submersibles are stopped at sea their crews usually scuttle them, sending boat and cocaine to the bottom in a minute or so and leaving no evidence of trafficking. Until 2008, in accordance with maritime law, the crew was rescued and, if there was no physical evidence of wrongdoing, released without criminal charges. To address this legal loophole, the US Drug Trafficking Vessel Interdiction Act was enacted in September 2008, making it a "felony for those who knowingly or intentionally operate or embark in a self-propelled semi-submersible (SPSS) that is without nationality and that is or has navigated in international waters, with the intent to evade detection."[21] The penalty is a prison term of up to 20 years in the U.S.[34]

    The bill does not apply to flagged vessels (i.e., that have been registered with some nation). The bill grants extraterritorial jurisdiction over international waters, and also makes it illegal to lack relevant documents. Instead of an anti-narcotics operation turning into a rescue mission when the submarines are scuttled and sink, the crew can be arrested and charged.[35]

    Some alleged narco sub smugglers are now facing criminal charges in USA for operating an unflagged semi-submersible.[36]

    Colombia's congress passed a law in June 2009 punishing the building of semi-submersible vessels with up to 12 years in prison, and transporting drugs in them with up to 14 years.[35]


  3. Hello,

    I was in a similar dilema 6 months ago with a budget of about 2K.

     

    I got :

    - Saiga .223 (it is an AK made in Russia and .223 is widely available , also the chamber can shoot 5.56 NATO)

    - Henry Lever Action .22LR (cheap to shoot and i got it for 265$ at Cabelas.....with a great warranty).

    - Mosin 91/30 for 99$ which has a powerfull 7.62x54r cartridge and if tuned can shoot decent

    - STAG 15 model 4 20inch (5.56 NATO barell) to get me the AR platform coverage (900$)......did not want to blow any extra money on the Colt legend or similar AR`s priced $1000+.....

     

     

    Good luck with your selection.....


  4. Finland ,

     

     

    Their transportation and use laws are very similar to NJ , however from knowing people from there it is not very hard to get them as long as you show proof you need it for sporting/hunting use.

     

    And there`s a lot of Mosin`s in the basement from WW2

     

    Here is some sections from Wikipedia ,

    Interesting thing is that self/home defense is not a valid reason for the police to give you a license

     

     

    In Finland there are 32 privately owned firearms per 100 civilians according to the Finnish Ministry of the Interior[1]. By the end of 2006 there were more than 1.6 million licensed firearms.[1] Averaged among Finland's population of 5.3 million it comes to 30.5 per 100 people. Another study puts the number of firearms per capita as high as 0.55 [2]

    Unlicensed firearms are estimated at around 1.5 per 100. There are some 650,000 firearms permit holders in Finland. 60% of firearm permits are issued for hunting weapons[3]. There are an estimated 290,000 handguns, which comes to 5.5 per 100 civilians [4]. Permits are not required for muzzle-loaded black powder guns made before 1890 as long as they are not used. Captured guns from World War II are thought to constitute the largest share of illegal firearms.

    The widely cited Small Arms Survey 2007 by Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva Switzerland[4] claims there are some 3 million firearms in Finland, or 56 per 100 civilians.

     

    To obtain a firearms license, an individual must declare a valid reason to own a gun. Acceptable reasons include hunting, sports or hobby shooting, profession related, show or promotion or exhibition, collection or museum, souvenir, and signalling. It is worth noticing that self- or home defence are not considered valid reasons. The applicant must provide evidence supporting the acquisition license application to prove that he or she is actually using firearms for the stated purpose(s). Such proof may consist of written declarations from other license holders as referees, shooting diaries or certificates from a shooting club.[6]

    The applicant is also subjected to an extensive background check from police accessible databases and even citations for speeding or DUI can be grounds of not granting the license.

    Collectors can have special licenses for firearms otherwise not permitted (e.g. pocket guns or select fire weapons). These are usually issued based on the collector's previous record of gun ownership, but ultimately the issuing of licenses is at the local police's discretion.

    Conversely, a license for a pistol or a rifle is relatively easy to obtain, although the police usually require that the first gun is suitable for a beginner (usually a gun chambered in .22LR or single shot shotgun).

    Manchester police shoot, kill man, prosecutor says

     

    By KEITH RUSCITTI and CHELSEA MICHELS

    STAFF WRITERS

     

    The family of a man shot and killed by a police officer are disputing investigators' version of events that resulted in the death.

     

    On Sunday, Richard Nordstrom, 43, who lived at 3219 Wilbur Avenue was killed after Manchester police responded to a 911 call about a domestic violence dispute at the residence.

     

    Ironically, Andrew Nordstrom the nephew of Richard and the person who made the call to police, said authorities went over the line in handling the situation.

     

    "As far as I'm concerned it was murder,'' said Andrew, 22, who also lives at the home and who claims to have been standing about 15 feet away when the shots were fired.

     

    According to a press release from the Ocean County Prosecutor, at about 2 p.m. on Sunday local police responded and were directed by relatives to an unattached garage and workshop located to the rear of the property where Nordstrom had fled.

     

    Officers saw him in the storage area pouring gasoline on and around himself, and he was holding a lighter.

     

    Nordstrom was ordered by the officers to drop the lighter, to which he complied.

     

    However, according to police, he then brandished a firearm and pointed it at the officer who then fired at Nordstrom, striking him several times.

     

    The firearm was subsequently determined to be an imitation, according to the Prosecutors Office.

     

    Nordstrom was pronounced dead at the scene via telemetry by Dr. Gilman of Monmouth Medical Center at 2:24 p.m.

     

    "We don't keep gasoline in the shed,'' said Andrew in an interview on Monday night.

     

    "And if my uncle was pouring gas on him, like the police said, "where are the stains on the floor? Gasoline leaves stains"'','' he said pointing while pointing to the dry, concrete floor in the area where Richard Nordstrom was shot.

     

    Andrew Nordstrom said he called police because of a physical confrontation he had with Richard. He admitted his uncle was drunk at the time and was hoping police could calm him down. An opened bottle of vodka was still located on a table inside the shed on Monday evening.

     

    The Prosecutors Office also said Manchester police have responded to the residence on numerous occasions relating to domestic issues.

     

    Andrew said "it's been months'' since police were at the home regarding a domestic issue and that had to do with violating a restraining order involving his ex-wife.

     

    "They confiscated all of his guns the last time they were here,'' said Andrew.

     

    Edward Nordstrom, the father of the victim, was also a witness to the events.

     

    He said officers chased Richard into the shed where he apparently locked himself in.

     

    "I went to get the key,'' said Edward, 72. "But when I came out they broke through the window area of the door.''

     

    Moments later, the gunshots were fired, according to the Nordstroms.

     

    "It was literally seconds after the cop went through the door that he fired the shots,'' said Andrew Nordstrom. "There were four shots. One missed.''

     

    The Nordstroms run a fencing business. The detached garage and tool shed is where supplies are kept. Behind the structure are rolled up fences and supplies.

     

    Ocean County Prosecutor Marlene Lynch Ford announced on Monday that her major crime detectives are conducting the investigation into the incident.

     

    "As is protocol in all police involved shootings that occur within our jurisdiction, the Prosecutor's Major Crime Unit headed by Captain Thomas Hayes will conduct the investigation and report their findings to the Ocean County Prosecutor as well as the NJ Division of Criminal Justice,'' the Prosecutors Office said in a statement.

     

    Authorities haven't identified the officer involved in the shooting.

     

    Investigators were at the residence until nearly midnight on Sunday, according to the family.


  6. Albert (Tiny) Manzo was executed mob-style in August 1983, after he and Gambino family soldier Peter A. Campisi were suspected of skimming from a mob casino on Staten Island. "A couple of weeks later, they found Tiny Manzo in the trunk of his car," recalled Robert Buccino, a New Jersey organized crime expert.

     

    The 350-pound mobster took four slugs to his torso. His naked body - the arms and legs bound in plastic - was discovered in the trunk of his parked Lincoln-Continental outside a supermarket in Hillside, N.J. The killing was never solved.

     

    Campisi, a made man and Tiny's partner in the casino, suffered a similar fate, Buccino recalled.

     

    The colorful Manzo, who ran for mayor of Paterson in 1974, also owned the Brownstone Restaurant - one of the main backdrops for action in "Housewives."

    4. 35 days

    5. In order to verify your employment they want a paystub (you can black out all data except address of emplyer and name) so they dont have to call your employer. This has speeded up the process from 45 to 35 days in 2012

    6. PP`s take exactly 35 days in as of Jan 1 2012


  8. I inquired through PK90 a few months ago and it was NJ legal. I decided on a PSL though. Anyway on one of the forums a while ago someone was trying to translate the manual (180 pages), which is actually a sniper training manual from the former YU. There`s been a little of a price drop on the M76 lately so i may get it eventually , but could use the manual. I ll inquire and post if i find it.


  9. Massive oil plumes under US Gulf

    Scientists have found vast underwater plumes of oil, one 10 miles (16km) long and a mile wide, in the Gulf of Mexico, following last month's rig disaster.

     

    A Georgia University expert warned oxygen levels had fallen 30% in some areas of the sea, and it could take decades to repair the damage.

     

    BP is still trying to insert a tube into the gushing well to siphon the crude to a ship on the surface.

     

    The US government has demanded BP make clear its commitment to pay damages.

     

    Researchers from the National Institute for Undersea Science and Technology say they have detected several sprawling oil slicks lurking just beneath the surface of the sea and at depths of 4,000ft (1,200m).

     

    Dead zones

     

    The find suggests the scale of the potential environmental disaster is much worse than previously feared since the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig blew up on 20 April, killing 11 workers.
