    ATF often contradicts themselves:




    Ok, I will try to stick to serious gun topics from now on and leave the light humor out it if you all please. How do you like my signature?

    Side note: I like the days when ATF only meant "automatic transmission fluid" (that cherry-red liquid stuff) for clutch-less cars.
    You are aware that Automatic Transmissions are not "clutch-less" and that the "cherry-red liquid stuff" has a primary function of providing a means to hydraulically control and apply the clutches that are inside an automatic transmission, right?  

    If you are not aware of this, by all means look it up in the dictionary, or Google it and then share your newfound knowledge with the good folks on some automotive forums.

    I meant cars with automatic transmissions, "clutch-less" cars, don't have clutch pedals that people step on.
    I know what you meant, I just did not know if you knew that you were wrong to describe an automatic transmission as being without clutches.   Most people simply use the word 'manual' when describing a transmission that is not an automatic.

     You remind me of the guy who once asked me if I had "the thing you keep in your pocket that has the little lines on it that you use to measure things with"

    I am sure that he had at least once in his life heard the words 'pocket rule' before then, but maybe his brain was wired differently than most, and he had challenges when attempting to intelligently communicate with others.  In his own mind he was probably a genius.

    For all I know, he became a politician.  He was far too mentally challenged to make an honest living as an auto mechanic.

    Anybody checked out the Personal Defense forum to see if he's posted a masked political thread in there yet?

    True. Nothing has been brought to the table by the OP to date but a lesson in patience and tolerance. 

    Don’t want him gone. Just want less volume and more actual substance. He says so much to equal so little. 

    Patience and tolerance are great virtues: please try them out yourself. If you want more substance, please go pan for gold. Don't read my handiwork then.

    The dictionary can't put you in a federal prison for 10+ years, the ATF can. Choose your source wisely.
    THIS bears repeating in case you missed it or have just decided to see how long you can run this useless thread.  

    Put down the dictionary, it's useless on this subject.  Regardless of what you think or Webster tells you the 590 is a FIREARM.  That is the legal definition from the BATF and the ONLY one that counts unless you want to spend the rest of your days hosted by a Federal Penitentiary.

    What crime have I committed? If you love BATF so much, please go marry an agent there.
    See, now that’s just stupid.  Did I say I love the ATF?  Nope, I just think it’s  irrational to hate people that have done nothing to you.  

    Everything you post is hearsay and wrong deductions drawn from obviously limited knowledge and experience in your part.  

    You really think it’s fun to post firearm terms to a forum of firearms experts?   Specially when your only picking words out of a dictionary?  What exactly were you shooting for? (Pun intended). A serious discussion on Webster’s definition if a shotgun?   🤣

    You do realize that the “Alphabet boys” could care less what everyone else calls it right? You could make a contraption out of pipe and pipe fittings and a 2x4 that will touch off a 12 gauge shell.  Now to you that may be “hardware” because it is, but to them it’s not.  Your buddy likes it and you sell it to him, to recoup costs and a 5 spot for assembly.   To the Alphabet boys say you just manufactured and sold a shotgun....... without a license.....just the way it is.....

    I don't know where this guy came from but his profile is interesting. He joined 26 April and has over 160 posts. Look at the rest of it. He has 8 likes and a few agrees. With what he's been writing its a mystery to me.

     That bureau has done bad things to good Americans who run the gun trade.  No good American who is pro-gun works for the ATF. That bureau serves no good purpose. It has not saved one innocent life, to wit, absolutely none.

    Oh shiznit! I didn't mean to encourage him!

    Just for the record, I disagree with you! Most of the ATF are just doing a job and from my experience a good one. If you have a problem with them it starts at the top. Personally I have a problem with my Republican party. Where are they?

    Don't think, your not good at it! Research (a multitude of views), learn, know. Then think and ponder.

    curmudgeon; Great word! Had to look it up. Appropriate, concise and accurate.

    That would be because they are tax agents...not law enforcement...

    What???!!.  Mike, did you not post elsewhere about how fabulously wealthy the moderator's job had made you?  You would be willing to give all that up?

    I imagine dealing with trolls is much easier than dealing with persons who would probably benefit from being tested, and treated, for Asperger Syndrome.

    Perhaps when he creates another member account in this forum, he should start with a thread about living within the autism spectrum rather than explaining to those of us with thick skulls what an informational asset he could be if we would only agree with his unassailable and absolute truths. 

    I, for one, would be far less ignorant and less a Mook if my grandfather had provided me with a collection of old Field & Stream magazines and instead of gaining empirical experience I had simply relied on Webster and Google.

    Well that would be legit if he were legitimately banned the first time. That's like arresting someone for failure to ID when you never had probable cause to ID them from the start.

    Funny.  A guy comes on the board and creates more interaction, discussion, and debate than the forum has had in a year.  Then gets banned for what reason?  Apparently being a douche is bannable.  So you say he snuck back on after being banned before.  What was that reason?  Being a douche?  Maybe the forum rules should be updated to state
    douchery is bannable.  Wouldn’t be the first time for an arbitrary banning.  

    Gee I wonder why it is a wasteland around here.  

    Nothing to see here, please return to groupthink, and carry on.
    Apparently free thought is punished, and conformity is required, while peckerless cowards run the show.

    ECHO...ECHO....echo...

    Ah......One savors the hypocrisy!
