Does anyone have any experience with the Kel Tec P50? We are looking to buy one at or near the MSRP of $950, but they seem to be hard to find and are going for much higher prices. Does anyone have any comments, recommendations or ideas where we can get one at or near the MSRP?
#1. Flashlight good.Just my two cents...
- I'd never put a flashlight on any of my guns. Its a bright beacon in the night telling the bad guy to "AIM HERE!"
- My next expenditures will be on silencesr. Here in Texas, silencers MADE IN TEXAS are not subject to ATF regulation. The feds are planning to cancel the FFL of anyone that sells a silencer without ATF regulation. Shops that sell silencers but not guns are cropping up all over so they can do so without federal reprisal.
Nothing will happen in the federal courts, any more than "sanctuary cities" concerning immigration happened. Mirror images. Places here are already selling silencers under the new law which took effect in Texas 1 Sep.Assume they cut power to your building. No switch will bring you what you want. A light properly used is a good thing. You don't turn them on and just walk around shining them anywhere like an idiot.
Jump out there then and be the first trial case (silencers). I predict almost no one will buy any if/until it is decided in the federal courts.
HB 957 simply removes the threat of state-level prosecution for unregistered suppressor manufacturing, sales, and/or possession. It does not provide any level of immunity from federal-level prosecution.
In this regard, it is very similar to state marijuana laws. While it may be legal under state law, it can still be prosecuted under federal law. In fact, it was this precedent that spurred the introduction of the bill by Representative Tom Oliverson in the first place. “You just sort of saw crickets from the federal government on the [marijuana] issue,” he said.
In reference to Texas House Bill HB 957, passed by the legislature and signed by the governor:Texas only suppressors without a stamp. Sounds like a great way to get yourself caught up in an ATF sting and a Federal felony on your record.
Might I suggest reading up on the law that was passed?
New laws, whether enacted on the local, state, or federal levels, can often be confusing. Adding to this confusion is the fact that many people try to boil legislation down to easy-to-digest snippets.www.silencercentral.com
I would not bet one red cent on the Feds, especially under this administration, turning a blind eye to civil disobedience when it comes to Federal firearms laws like they are pot. That's a dangerous and expensive game.
That last part is really important. Before you run out and make yourself a can out of an oil filter and then post it on Instabook for all the world to see, STOP. If signed into law, this is still going to have to go through the federal courts.
You may remember the situation a couple of Kansans found themselves in after their state passed something called the Kansas Second Amendment Protection Act. A retailer there then began selling unregistered suppressors. He, along with one of his customers, was arrested by the ATF, prosecuted and convicted. They appealed to the Supreme Court, but were denied cert.
DON’T BE LIKE THOSE KANSANS.
People who know much more about both of these laws than we do tell us that the Texas bill is far different from what passed in Kansas and will provide the basis for a very good argument for excluding Texas-made suppressors from NFA regulation. That said, the process still needs to play out and be decided in the federal court system. In the mean time, don’t do anything stupid.
If you do not know how to use a weapon light, get training. Weapon lights are not constantly on. They are used to quickly ID targets to ensure you do not shoot an innocent. When you press that light, you will have at the very least several hundred lumens of light on a person, and that that point the gun is pointed at them too.If I want light, I'll go to the wall switch. Being a beacon for the enemy =bad.
The suppressor thing is already law here in Texas. When the blue states declared themselves "sanctuaries" for illegal immigrants, they set the precedent for Texas gun laws. Its a clear precedent that says states will do what they want. We see it now in states rejecting federal China Virus mandates, Texas protecting borders that the feds won't, Texas bringing home our National Guard from DC before they were released by the feds, many states rejecting Critical Race Theory in the classrooms, Oklahoma National Guard rejecting federal vaccine mandate... and so much more.
Gun shops around here are hesitant to sell Texas suppressors because they could lose their FFL. But many new businesses that don't actually sell guns will set you up with a suppressor and do the necessary gunsmithing. Tens of thousands of Texans will have suppressors before the feds figure a way to stop it. And simply pointing to equal protection under the law ... immigration sanctuary and 2d amendment sanctuary... will take so long to sort out my grandkids will have what they want before binding decisions are made.
