    yea, it will depend on what state you live in, some allow full-auto assault weapons but you must obtain a class III license (read:$$$$) to purchase one.

    I myself live in michigan and own an AR-15 (semi)

    I'm just a stupid newb but Assault rifles are legal in New York. I have a SKS with 2 30 round clips (with SWAT rounds) and a 4x scope bought in the great state of NY, for Home Defense :rl:

    it is probably a pre-ban which means it was made before they banned them.

    Even though the 30 round mags. are "banned," you can still buy them very easily. Heck, check www.cabelas.com and you can get 'em for the Mini-14, Mini-30, etc..

    Here's an example.

    Yea, there are TONS of hi-cap magazines that were produced before the ban so they are legal for sale.

    i don't know what the hell you're doing wrong, but my chinese sks will easily hit a 10-inch gong at 200 yds. offhand every time i shoot right. benched, it's every time. now, i don't percieve any situation that i might be involved in where i'll need more than 200 yds. of accuracy. but, i need to find a 300+ yd. range that's close by. you may have a shit sks, or you may not be shooting it right, but mine, which i haven't done anything to besides clean the ungodly amounts of cosmolene out of it, shoots perfectly.
