    He wants either a nice break open single shot 12ga shotgun or a blackpowder rifle. Which one does OT think I should get him?

    lol. I am seriously considering that because there would be no legal issues with him personally owning it and taking it to the range. (he is 16)

    I'd go with the black powder rifle. It'd teach him to take his time while he's shooting and it has more attention to detail involved.

    true. that being said, I never have actually gone to the range with him (he only has been shooting outside of the boyscouts since I started sophmore year) so I have no idea how he shoots.

    Oh, and the first time he went to the local range with my granddad's old Browning .22 auto that is 50ish years old and hadnt been fired in 30 or so, my dad out shot him, even though the last time he went shooting, he was probably 20 or so. (on the other hand, I think my dad LEARNED on that .22).

  8. New England Firearms. break-action single shot.

    about $180 brand new. I have one in a 223 heavy barrel, and it shoots 1/4 moa no problem, even with shitty ammo.. and you can send your gun into the factory, and for like $80 they fit another caliber barrel for you.. and then you can switch them anytime you want in a matter of minutes..

    however, I thought for some reason you could swap in shotgun barrels.. but now that I look at their website ( www.hr1871.com ), i dont think you can.

    :hsd:

    still sweet guns either way, and now they offer them in 500 S&W :eek3:

    What are the legalities of a black powder rifle?
    Someone tried telling me that felons can own one regardless and that you can carry one around

    Is any of this true at all?

    Varies by state, I have a confederate navy repro .44 revolver, that I bought new no background check required to buy it or anything. Now If I want to shoot it I'm suppose to go down to police HQ and have it ammended onto my permit. NY only considers them firearms and treats them as such if they've been fired before. If I shoot it and want to sell it to another NY'er we have to go through same process as any other pistol, if I sell it as is (never fired) I can sell it to whomever with no paperwork. :ugh2:

    They aren't considered firearms and can be shipped to your house in most places, dunno about the felon thing though.
