Default Order In Council Firearms problem / solution


Lets keep our politics to ourselves and deal with the problem and possible solutions.

A friend has an M72, a very nice bilingual one. Made utterly useless by the laws now in place. Can not transport, sell, display etc.

What can he do? Wait for some sketchy buy back from the feds at a notional value that doesn't reflect what he paid for it?

Maybe not. Recently we were brain storming and came up with an idea. Cut both ends off roughly at the lengths shown in these cropped pictures and stick something tubular up inside and then put them in a period correct ruckack or webbing bag and just have the ends sticking out of the bags.

Looks like two M72 but wholly legal and actually doubles his display material.

Maybe this is the way to go. Removes any of the "is it deactivated properly' quibble as there is only a few inched there.

Sensible comments invited please.
