Re: missing s/n

In the case of the Marlin the fix was simple. You could have simply pulled the stocks and look for the whole serial number on the wood. Marlin marks serial numbers in multiple places, so it's easy to find them elsewhere. Then the hole could be filled and the missing digit engraved back on the tang....

Trump should have listed his reasons & tasked the DOJ to investigate Hunter Biden under the Foreign Corrupt Practices act of 1977. He did not do that and still has not.

I'm not sure we actually know that.
The DOJ is under the executive branch, ie, Trump.

Re: The Sig Got Out Of Jail A Few Days Early

Oregon used to allow carry permit holders to pay and go. They changed that many years ago when they went to instant check. Now it's usually a few minutes wait while the FFL calls in and gets it approved. I've personally never had more than 5 minutes wait, and that was when they were very busy. In r...

Yeah, the ex will probably kick down the door, announce who he is in a loud voice, and make sure he's lined up with her sights. Probably no reason to think he'd be quiet, or break in quietly. I guess she should have a gun.
