    Nothing special, but I've been through probably a dozen ATF inspections at the stores I've worked at. Only one time ever caused me to raise an eyebrow.

    >inspection is going fine, store does so much business that inspections usually take a whole week
    >BS'ing with one of the agents as he is inventorying guns near my work bench
    >he tells me I've worked on some of his guns before
    >cool
    >I looked him up in my repair logbook (I never see customers, just their guns)
    >I had threaded and installed muzzle brakes on 14 rifles of his over the years.

    Felt kinda weird knowing I was on the radar of an agent all this time and I had no idea. Luckily we ran that shop squeaky clean, so nothing to worry about, but still makes me nervous.

      One more story, not mine, and not ATF, but secret service. Story came from an old co-worker of mine.

      >At SCI show in Las Vegas in the early 00's
      >brought a few collectible guns to try and sell at the show
      >expensive shit like side by side rifles, stuff you'd use on safari
      >talking to a guy who said he's really interested in one of the guns
      >run upstairs to grab the gun out of hotel room
      >literally run back downstairs and through the show
      >guy in a black suit steps into the aisle and quietly says to stop
      >says not in trouble, but can't let you pass
      >look ahead a bit to figure out reason for being stopped
      >see president of the United fricking States checking out the booths at the show surrounded by secret service

      My co-worker actually got to meet G.W. Bush because of this, took a picture with him and even chatted for a minute. HE actually apologized to my co-worker for the hassle.

            Yeah but look at it from those presidents' point of view, they're cooped up in a kind of bubble, and even worse, can be the kind of people who crave human contact (being narcissistic politicians and all). You can't go anywhere or do anything without a planned military operation. At a some point Obama would be like "I NEED TO GET A FRICKIN BURGER" and demanded to leave the White House as the Secret Service scrambled to set up a security perimeter. Yes, his staff could go get burgers, but no, he was gonna frickin do it because I'm a human being goddammit!!!

              It also kinda hurts any President's image, at the end of the day. You're democratically elected, and the myth of America is that you're supposed to be a "man of the people," but you go everywhere with this big knot of scary dudes in suits who won't let anyone get in sneezing distance of you. Inevitably, there's going to be a point where your desire to just be another American and do regular American things overwhelms your willingness to be tardwrangled as the Leader of the Free World.

              People were wondering that at the time, too, hence the allegations of it being an "oil war" even back then. From what I remember, the thinking was "Iraq funds terror groups, a terror group is responsible for the attack, something something Al Qaeda, also something something WMDs, grave threat to the free world, Saddam's gotta go". Of course in retrospect, knowing Iraq had less to do with it than Saudi Arabia (our "ally"), that the WMD scare was highly exaggerated, and the fact that we spent 20 years accomplishing nothing, we know it was a poor move. Back then, people were out for blood, and it really didn't matter whose. We had experience with Saddam, already didn't like him, and so it made for a convenient excuse (some say "too convenient") to fund MIC, finish the job, and make people at home feel like they did something. That lasted for like 2 or 3 years before it became mainstream to question the necessity and importance of the occupation, and somehow still went on for another 17 years and a whole nother sandbox. The Patriot Act and infinite war budget was the Fed's wet dream, and was drafted before a single one of the terrorists began training to fly. You do the math.

              A bit of other and other things too. The general concept was 'oh shit terrorism is real now' (since after the Cold War ended a major thought going around was loose nukes from the badly unsecured USSR stockpiles). Airplane hijacking used to be all about negotiations and hostage rescues, not kamikaze planes, until 9/11 proved otherwise; so what if the same thing is possible with WMD? MAD doesn't work on suicide bombers, oh no! We better go round up any WMD which weren't collected up by the Nunn-Lugar program before 9/11 2: this time it's nuclear.
              Obviously there were a lot of other, lesser, related causes, like petrodollar, the history of Middle Eastern oil supplies (fracking hadn't been invented yet so the US was dependent on ME oil and boomers had the 1970s oil crisis in their memories) the neocon PNAC plan from Israel/Epstein, the narrative we should have finished the job in 1991, etc; probably a few more I missed.

              But the desire to preempt a second worse 9-11 in the post-cold-war mindset was the main thing.

                Maybe you jumped timelines and you are experiencing the Mandela effect.
                Some wikipedia tidbits for a quick cut and paste:
                >Hydraulic fracturing began as an experiment in 1947, and the first commercially successful application followed in 1950.
                >Massive hydraulic fracturing (also known as high-volume hydraulic fracturing) is a technique first applied by Pan American Petroleum in Stephens County, Oklahoma, US in 1968
                Before 9/11, Iraq was the 4th largest crude oil supplier for California. And Iraq was missing the city sized infrastructure necessary to create the "mushroom cloud" WMD's we were told that our military would surely find.
                We were made to fight that war for "other reasons".

                Iraq had nothing to do with it though and almost nobody really pretended they even did. Indeed that was one of the biggest conservative arguments against Iraq 2: that it would distract from vengeance against the Taliban. Which it definitely did.

                Unfortunately a mixture of lies and rally-round-the-flag overcame that and other objections and let moronic Bush do the fun daddy war he wanted vs the one we actually needed that was less sexy.

                The program was not universally supported even at the time, and there's been much hand-wringing and soul-searching since, but the guys in the BoP certainly had some feelings about it.

            No, "everyone" definitely didn't. Not that I have any hard numbers but I ton of us were accepting of needing to hit Afghanistan but thought Iraq was a terrible idea. Though note NOT necessarily for the reasons mainsteam media or talking heads later came up with, but because there was clearly no good plan and the justification clearly was shit. Like, Saddam was an absolute gigahomosexual and neither myself nor anyone I knew thought it was wrong to kill him. But we could also see that while W and co were all gung ho about beating the army they had nothing but hopes and dreams and napkins about what would come after. Nor any justification for how it could possibly be worth it. And even if WMDs were there we didn't think they'd find them, because the program had to be small and anything could just get dumped down an old mine and never be found in a thousand years. The world is full of bad shitholes but if they're not attacking us options are limited.

            Still irritates me, it was such a shallow boys and FLASHY TECH MAKES OLD WAYS OBSOLETE dotcom era thing in the run up. Rummy and friends were so fricking infatuated with this view that really, really obviously didn't match reality. Like, even if the culture was civilized and matching, you still need to sink in TONS of money and you need to do it day fricking 1. You need a plan for all those military you're demobilizing on the other side. All the government officials. All the fricked up infrastructure. Having broke it you now own it. You have like a 3-6 month honeymoon period where you can plausibly say "we're working on it, last guy fricked things up" but then people want to see progress.

            Basically they wanted a fun little thing and then no responsibility afterwards and don't even try to pretend that wasn't super clear in the run up. I don't care about the raghead part but god damn it still need to take shit seriously.

            The story that was told is that we were gonna take down the modern "Axis of Evil" being Afghanistan, then Iraq, and then Iran. Afghan and Iraq were such a disaster that they didn't have public support to go through with Iran.

            Other than being totally unnecessary, unproductive, and further destabilizing the region? We should have invaded the Saudis, since they're the major power that actually had legitimate ties to the attacks. Also could have actually gotten that oil everyone was griping about.

          Realistically it wasn't wrong to invade Iraq, and would have probably needed to be done at some point anyway to keep Saddams sons out of power once the old man kicked it.
          The people of Iraq actually did welcome it in the initial stages.

          The massive frickup afterwards was allowing American corporate entities in AT ALL.
          There should have been no subtracting and farming out of operations.
          It should have been strictly handled by govt, with no profit seeking involvement.

          Companies by necessity function by extracting profit. When you empower them to forge the infrastructure of a new government at your behest, it should be obvious they're going to do their fricking best to push a "minimum viable product" type of deal and just bail with as much money as possible.

          Unironically listen to the Behind the Bastards and The Dollop episodes on it.

            No you have it somewhat backwards, the frickup was not having American corporate entities in more, faster. AND not having police fast, AND not a proper demobilization plan, AND not just imposing a proper new Constitution based on America's with some local input.

            But saying capitalism was the problem is an absolutely fricking stupid take. We needed more of that, with local hiring, and far far more money poured in upfront when it'd make way more of a difference. Everything was pretty ok in Iraq for 6 months while the pop waited and we squandered it. We needed hard proof in their eyes day 1 afterwards, law & order protecting safety, and tons of private contractors coming in to pave roads and clean water and do lots of other visible quality of life stuff. Reliable power, food, and hire tons of locals as well. Teach them western working standards, AND western working labor protections. Give them a stake in success.

            We ended up spending over a trillion mostly pissed away in dribbles and drabbles, because nobody wanted to fricking commit and thus it didn't do what we could have. Not that it would have been worth it anyway but frick.

            Also arguably same problem with Ukraine: if we'd just poured in aid while Russia was on the back foot and given them everything we ultimately have anyway in that same fricking summer, Ukraine would have had a strong chance to have already won or at least massively more progress (Crimea might still be holding out). Trickles don't work to build momentum and stop the opponent from adapting.

    Turns out while we were sitting at the rear, both targets saw everything down the street and just fricking drove off (different Marshal team got them later), while the ATF team cuffed a terrified couple and tossed their house. IIRC sizeable pay out to the couple, literally no accountability to any of the agents who couldn't read house numbers

          Right, so basically people they're 99% sure are indeed law abiding citizens, and thus no threat and no drama. Kind of a perverse situation, Bureau of FAT-Es want to larp and justify their salaries for as minimal personal risk and effort as possible, so naturally they go after people who are at worst "technicality criminals" for some obscure provision or another but fundamentally will comply. Meanwhile the dangerous actual criminals get to run free because they might resist. But both the extremes aren't interested in fixing it for different reasons and it becomes self-reinforcing. Feels bad.

          This literally goes back to the beginning. ATF literally started as the Bureau of Prohibition. Like read the shit about the Congressional hearings in the fricking 1970s:
          >A Senate subcommittee report stated, "Based upon these hearings it is apparent that ATF enforcement tactics made possible by current federal firearms laws are constitutionally, legally, and practically reprehensible." The Subcommittee received evidence that ATF primarily devoted its firearms enforcement efforts to the apprehension, upon technical malum prohibitum charges, of individuals who lack all criminal intent and knowledge. Evidence received demonstrated that ATF agents tended to concentrate upon collector's items rather than "criminal street guns". In hearings before ATF's Appropriations Subcommittee, testimony was submitted estimating that 75 percent of ATF gun prosecutions were aimed at ordinary citizens with no criminal intent.
          Good thing that's all completely reformed now!

      Hitting the wrong house is something I hear about a lot (bad news travels so info bias but whatever). My question is: IN AN ERA OF GOOGLE MAPS HOW DO YOU FRICK THAT UP.

      Step 1: Pull up the adress of google maps
      Step 2: Streetveiw and look at house
      Step 3: Print picture of house plus map
      Step 4: Stick to wall and have briefing

        gubmint is a little slow to adopt cutting edge 10+yo technology prease understand

        But seriously they never needed Google or whomever, they could have someone fricking drive by and take a fricking picture even. The answer is lack of accountability driving laziness, simple as that. They have been allowed for ages and ages to get away with the bare minimum and not held to account so that's what they do. SWAT teams and everyone else too, there is a huge issue with just basic, minimal respect for citizen's rights, or even reimbursing them for frickups afterwards.

        Of course both extremes feed this because some react not with appropriate precise things like
        >we need to get rid of the court invented qualified immunity shit, corrupting civil asset forfeiture, and gutting of takings clause
        but
        >HURR DEFUND DA POWEECE
        which is the opposite wrong extreme, but even cops will feed that and stop patrolling at the slightest imposition thus further boosting crime and presenting it as "we get to do anything we want or else something bad might happen to you ;^)" like the fricking mob. Whole thing sucks.

    I saw an ATF agent at a gun store in Dallas yesterday. I told him how cool it was to see him working in the field, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen M1 Garands in his cart without paying.

    The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to have a warrant for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

    When she took one of the guns and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to make sure there isn't any shoestrings tied to them,” and then turned around and winked at me. I think he was serious. After she inspected each gun for illegal modifications and put them in a bag and started to ask him to sign the papers, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly and shot the store owner's dog.

    Yup.

    I’m a DOD cop. Three agents tried to come on base to make inquiries on a servicemember’s firearm purchases, but they didn’t call ahead or anything. The stupid ass gate guards were going to just let them on because they had badges but one had the bright idea to run it by dispatch first. Myself and another unit went out to talk to them, and later my supervisor came out too. Basically told them to get a warrant and coordinate their visit with MPI or CID, or frick off. They were seriously pissed and I was impossibly smug about it for weeks.

    Not ATF but another time, a similar incident occurred involving an FBI agent. Guards stopped him because he flashed his badge, but clearly wasn’t on the job because his wife and kids were in the car. So they told him to go to the visitor center and get guest passes and he didn’t like that. I roll up and why he needs to come on the post and he tells me they’re going to a birthday party for one of his daughters school friends, then relayed his interaction with the guards and how dissatisfied he was with it. I asked if he was armed and he says “of course, I’m a fricking FBI agent”. So I’m like, “cool, but if you’re not cleared by the provost marshal and garrison commander to carry on post and are not here for official business you can’t have it”. This sends the feeb seething. Goes off about how they’d driven almost an hour to get here and I was ruining a little girls day, and it took all of my willpower not to get snarky and tell him how much I gave a shit or to simply remind him that the rules are for everyone. I told him he’d have to deposit the weapon somewhere then go to the visitor center, and contact the friend so they could sponsor their guest passes. He said “frick you” and opted to just leave. I told him to have a nice day as he left and went went so red I thiought his eyes would pop out or he’d have a stroke or something.

    Feebs are mega Karen’s. Frick em’.

        Depends on the post and what kind of LE MOA the garrison has with state/local authorities. The vast majority of the time the options are to register them with PMO and keep at home (if you live in housing), or store them in an arms room, either your unit’s or PMO’s.

        Or you can hide them in your barracks or car. That’s quite the risk though.

        Moths to a flame, those are.

        Yeah but look at it from those presidents' point of view, they're cooped up in a kind of bubble, and even worse, can be the kind of people who crave human contact (being narcissistic politicians and all). You can't go anywhere or do anything without a planned military operation. At a some point Obama would be like "I NEED TO GET A FRICKIN BURGER" and demanded to leave the White House as the Secret Service scrambled to set up a security perimeter. Yes, his staff could go get burgers, but no, he was gonna frickin do it because I'm a human being goddammit!!!

        That’s a made up story to make him look like more of an Everyman guy. Like drinking beer and getting a dog. Motherfricker never had one dog in his whole life until it served him politically to get one. The fact is presidents have a full kitchen staff on 24/7 to serve them anything they want.

          ngl I think being a politician should be somewhat humiliating and dehumanizing. Your frickups decide whether or not somebody else goes god-knows-where to get skinned alive and drowned in boiling oil for reasons they don't understand, and those reasons only get foggier with hindsight because politics is constantly trying to make itself look better by changing records and shit. As President, your words are death and you feast on carrion.

          The President shouldn't be allowed to have pets. If hundreds of people to go to war and aren't allowed to see their dogs, you aren't allowed to see your dog either. It's just fair.

            "Fair" is a completely fricking moronic concept to apply to something like that. "Hundreds of people who go to war and aren't allowed to see their dogs" aren't the C&C, aren't in charge of nuclear arsenal, all classification, all the branches of the executive. They don't have to deal with the pressure and we don't have to deal with them fricking us all because they cracked. People are not equal, not in themselves and not in terms of their importance to others.

            Also we have a volunteer army. It's a job. Jobs come with terms when you sign the employment contract. It's not some secret they spring on you. Any American who goes to war in the modern era should know that no you don't get to bring fido. Meanwhile even the civilian contractor janitor cleaning toilets for government does indeed get to go home to their shitty apartment and have a dog there. What the frick is "unfair" about that? They're different jobs.

            >should be humiliating
            Nah. It should be a privilege to serve, and not an opportunity for personal enrichment. The number of congressmen who’ve become millionaires in office disgusts me.

            >pets
            That’s moronic, and “fair” is a concept for children.

            >The President shouldn't be allowed to have pets. If hundreds of people to go to war and aren't allowed to see their dogs, you aren't allowed to see your dog either. It's just fair.
            "Fair" is a completely fricking moronic concept to apply to something like that. "Hundreds of people who go to war and aren't allowed to see their dogs" aren't the C&C, aren't in charge of nuclear arsenal, all classification, all the branches of the executive. They don't have to deal with the pressure and we don't have to deal with them fricking us all because they cracked. People are not equal, not in themselves and not in terms of their importance to others.

            This.

            Boomers my man. They just won't give up their positions and are working in the fed government. Until 70+ trust me I see it constantly. It's absurd how stupidly ran a lot of the government agencies are since they won't step aside and let the younger generations with their tech knowledge take leads.

            After 19 years working for the government I can tell you that it’s the younger generations absolutely fricking everything else up currently. They’re enabled by senior leaders seeking to curry favor with them.

            All of those could have been prevented. The destabilization happened because of the piss poor planning with post invasion iraq

            There’s a great book about this titled “we meant well” outlining how GW let those fricking morons at DoS run the show and achieve the inevitable result of allowing idealistic homosexuals to be in charge of a military operation. If there was any justice in the world Bremer and the other leaders of the CPA would be rotting on a cross. The replacing of Gen Garner with Bremer and allowing him to operate as the de facto king of Iraq was one of the most nakedly politically corrupt and strategically stupid decisions in modern human history. Rumsfeld and Cheney were at war with each other and that fat jackass of a Mr. Burns cosplayer won, and won big, for his billionaire buddies.

        In my unit if you lived in the barracks you could store your POW in the company armory and check it in/out when off duty. You had to be going directly to/from the range or off-post.
        One time, after I got out, me and some friends went to a militaria collector show on post. The civilian gate guards looked at the back seat of the car and the pile of guns and asked us where we were going. "To the collectors show at building X" and he just waived us through. Thought that was nuts and couldn't imagine an MP being that chill.

    A gun noob probably wouldn't even think those things were illegal. They shouldn't be illegal. But people got arrested, so some people fell for that "totally not entrapment due to very specific court cases which create a path for legal entrapment".
    ATF could disband today and we'd only be safer.

    Bought parts off Gunbroker that wound up being stolen from the ATF facility by a janitor or something. I was the 4th or 5 person down the line. Got a call at work from them saying they were at my front door. Never got my money back either and they had 0 clue what they were looking at.

    In the third grade, some kid in my class's dad was an ATF agent who showed up on a "bring daddy to school day" and he brought in different guns including rifles, laid them out on a table, then explained gun safety to the kiddos (and what to do if you find a firearm, don't touch it! Tell mommy and daddy to call the police!). I grew up in Texas lol

      ATF. Not because they're better but because they can summon the rest of the US federal government including actual competent departments when required. That's ultimately how a lot of the USG gets its oomph, it's not that the guys you're talking too are necessarily impressive but you know what's standing behind them so they don't need to be.

            You have multiple agencies working in tandem with only minimal infighting, ready to crack down on the average Joe with a suped-up mega gestapo-meets-KGB death force thought police at any moment even without the power of the military and you guys just think you AR-15's can fight back. You should be terrified.

              Except they're also bloated AF, have terrible interagency communication, and the competent people are mostly focused on people they've been beading on for a long while. 90% of the Feds are just doing busy work looking at already collected data and determining who is b***h enough to piss their pants when Agent Waddles shows up.

              Memes aren't real anon. Rule of law generally does work. They aren't interested in general in the "average Joe" and while sure it's possible to get insanely unlucky 28 people die from lightning strikes each year in America on average and I don't fear going outside either. They don't actually have infinite forces and budget. Like any big organization they have extremely skilled and competent and then less so.

              The one thing guaranteed to get Serious People attention is someone challenging the government in general itself with force. Like if someone from the FCC comes to tell you about the shitty transformer you have which is randomly jamming 911 and to cut it out and you're also going to be fined and then you gun them down then sure genuinely scary people are going to come and arrest you or kill you. Duh. So you show some respect. But only a genuine fricking schizo would have any trouble there vs apologizing and fixing the problem.

              They already do a pretty good job of only begrudgingly talking to each other, and periodically going out of their way to piss in each other's cereal. If they ever got to become the many tentacles of an authoritarian state, it'd be the Soviet Union on steroids. Frightening for the people they do go after, but often rendered toothless by their zeal for fricking each other over.

              The US TLAs are all frequently audited and frequently forced to give information. They are not KGB meets Gestapo as they literally have to release reports on use of force. I don't know why you are so gay and moronic. Probably the fault of your upbringing

              They'd literally destroy each other the first chance they got.

              Just like the Soviets and CCP it's the ultimate goal of every 3 Letter Agency to ultimately destroy the others and rule as the one absolute alphabet authority. Besides smaller organizations like the EPA, BLM etc.

    Not ATF, but I once got searched by Secret Service while concealed carrying because I cut through a parking lot I didn't know was cordoned off trying to enter my Warhammer playing local game store. They were very confused about the giant case of minis and I had to take everything out so they could see it wasn't a bomb.
