SBRs illegal??

So, I’ve been looking around for a good first gun for a good while now, finally in a position to pull the trigger and buy one. Now I find out these SBRs aren’t legal without some bullshit $200 tax stamp?? Frick me! I’d settled on the CZ Scorpion, as it just got the best reviews for the price range I was looking for (under $700 ideally). This was back in 2020, though. What’s the current take on the Scorpion? Or what the frick do I get now that I can’t put a stock on it without a 30% price boost?

The SBR was perfect because I couldn’t decide between a pistol and rifle. Pistol wise would probably pick up the sig p365 or similar, rifle I’d just get whatever could best let me pretend it was a scar. The hk 416 was attractive for the price, I guess. I like the AR platform too. I just don’t know if I should go pistol or rifle, and now the middle ground is a lot harder.

The last horrid sin of mine is that I adore moron autist looking firearms like the p90, aug, vector, rhino, famas etc. It seems the more moronicly futuristic design aesthetically, the more moronic the prices are. Anyone have a suggestion for a firearm that looks similarly stupid and is in the smg, between pistol and rifle size range? Or rifle?

Quick aside, there was an sbr that was the “something 1000” popular in 2020, anyone know what I’m on about?

        I obviously don’t have much dignity, if I want a vector or p90 looking bullshit, but I do still have enough dignity not to get a Draco. Would much prefer to save some for a wasr, but it looks like those have gained a good chunk of price since I was paying attention to firearm prices.

        If I’m going to be bullied into buying a PSA instead of space age looking firearms released in the early 90s, is there a specific model I should I grab? Am I better off getting an upper from one place and lower another? Or just get the sig365 xmacro?

    You're paying way more in "HK tax" to clone a 416 than you'll ever pay to the government in actual tax for an SBR, so I'm really not sure what we're talking about here.

    If you're looking for shit that looks moronic, usually kinda works, and isn't outrageously expensive, I guess start with KelTec.

    Now please just build a PSA AR-15 like everyone else, thanks.

      Yeah, I know with hk you’re paying a premium and not getting as much as you pay for. I hadn’t considered full sized rifles as much, as I was set on an sbr, but probably need to readjust to something like a psa, as you mention. A pistol feels like it makes a lot of sense as well, but I’m stuck.

      I like the style of some of the keltec pistols, I haven’t heard good nor bad things there.

            Yes. The way it works is if they want to go after you for something or even if you suddenly have their attention and your firearm isn't compliant, you go to prison for the firearm. Yes, it has happened. They sent some guy to prison for exceeding the length of pull with his brace or some shit, by a small amount too.

            The idea isn't that they're going to go raid your house to find an SBR. It's rather that you gain their attention through some circumstance and then you're fricked.

                Sure, it was probably a headache
                >fees
                Wright's case was so open-and-shut that his attorney was a public defender, notoriously some of the worst attorneys on the planet, and that public defender dunked on the atf. He didn't pay a dime.

                This case in particular also led to a big trend of the ATF's myriad arbitrary opinions coming back to bite them in the ass when they tried to take it to court. After this case there were numerous examples of the ATF attempting to press NFA violations based on agency opinions then subsequently dropping the charges when, as an example, a man being prosecuted for possession of a machine gun for owning a bumpstock's attorney simply read the statutory definition of a machine gun out loud to the jury then explained how a bumpstock works. This also happened with somebody's attorney successfully arguing that an AR15 wasn't actually subject to federal regulation or even legally considered a firearm under the NFA and GCA because of its split receiver design meaning it doesn't contain a singular part that meets the statutory definition of a frame or receiver.
                The ATF losing (or realizing they were going to lose and dropping the charges to avoid setting legal precedent) these cases is the literal reason they went for the new brace ban and new "frame or receiver" definition. And they're getting slapped down in court for violating the administrative procedures act in both cases.

                And to be clear, while an APA win is still a win, it just returns us to the ~2017 status quo. I want all these lawsuits to ultimately get the NFA evaluated under Bruen.

                Also don't get into domestic disputes. If you're the kind of guy who throws shit at or hits women during an argument, don't. If you're with a woman who will lie to the cops and claim abuse because you're in an argument (which is what seems to have happened here: they were called in on a domestic disturbance, saw the guns, then it was an ATF case from there on out, DV charges gone), leave.

      Have dems ever explicitly opposed SBRs? Most politicians don't understand the NFA and almost all of the public doesn't, although it's not unheard of (looking at you WA), banning SBRs by name has never been a priority for dems. Now semi-autos is a different story, and most SBRs are semi-autos, but I doubt they would get so specific as to ban SBRs by name.

I agree that Trump has the best chance among Republicans of losing the general election but lots of moderates are looking back over the last 8 years and realizing they fricked up in 2020. The only reason the Dems did well in the midterms is because they successfully framed it around abortion rights, a losing issue for the Republicans. They are trying to do that again with the general election but absolutely nobody is going after it now. So, it's a moot point. Biden's a corrupt China sell out who has gone senile while trying to destroy the country. I don't love Trump but between the two, that's an easy choice.

        Are glocks the nicest no. I personally don't like them, even though I own three along with a p80. The reason I'd say to get a glock or m&p is you have a budget of 700. You can get police surplus ones for around 350 on average right now. And with that you will get a perfectly serviceable handgun to practice with and possibly even carry. Same with a PSA ar, are they the nicest not really, but as long as you got one that works, which you will probably know within 100 rounds, you are fine. Once you train and practice with those, you can find what you like and don't like about them,. Then you can start looking at nicer and more unique guns.

            P365 XL and XMacro are among the best pistols on the market atm. Get the XL if you want something you to carry regularly or the XMacro if you'll only carry occasionally.

            Alternatively for around $700 you could get a Beretta 92fs or PX4 and they're both much more attractive guns.

    You're kinda getting the worst of both worlds without the advantages though.
    A pistol is good because you can carry it concealed (even if you're not planning to conceal carry daily, this might still come in handy if you need to travel in an emergency or answer the door late at night when there's no obvious enough threat to warrant ipening the door with a rifle). The cost of this is shooting pistol caliber rounds with all that implies for effect on target. A pcc is smaller than a rifle, sure, but it's still too big to easily conceal. If you're not getting a pistol then you might as well get something in an intermediate or full power caliber.

    Only real benefit is cheaper training ammo.

    Braces are very similar to stocks and not SBR. At the moment, no federal rule against braces is being enforced. That could change.

    There is also something called the sling method where you forego using a stock or brace and instead use a sling to tension and stabilize the firearm. This does not work as well as a stock but it does allow you to keep the weapon smaller/lighter while avoiding the whole brace issue.

    When would a slung PCC make more sense than a traditional handgun with extended magazine? Some would say it doesn't. For me it does if you want to accessorize with all the goodies including a large format red dot, light and especially a suppressor, where you have the advantage of a fixed barrel design. The sling also lets you drop the weapon free to use both hands. So it has its' place. However, if you don't have a suppressor for it already, I would not get such a weapon.

            I'm not saying otherwise. I'm just pointing out that my 16" barrel AR pistol can have a stock on it or I can go back to a brace if I want to drive around with it in my lap, legally.

              Supposing the folding is handy af, probably the best option to get an ar into a backpack.
