    I'm in the same boat. My only hope is that someone, somehow will rule the '86 ban unconstitutional & things will go back to the way they should be. I won't hold my breath.

    I do know what you mean about the cost. I bought my 2 MG's in the early 90's when they were still cheap and I was still single. There is no way I could afford them today.

    What would this do to prices? That would suck for someone to pay 12k for a gun, only to have its value drop to nothing overnight.

    As tempting as that sounds... I think I am going to have to pass on that offer. :wink2:


    Prices would drop back down to close to what semi-auto AR's cost now. I would not count on that happening anytime soon. When the SCOTUS barely rules that handguns are constitutionaly protected (5-4 in Heller vs DC), there is no way that they would overturn the MG ban. It would take the appointment of several constitutionaly strict, conservatives SC Justices and a political climate that was far friendlier to MG ownership. It would also take someone with deep pockets to sue the governement and stick it out through the years it would take to reach the SCOTUS and hope that they will hear the case.

    I agree, I don't see it happening. Like I said, I'm not going to hold my breath. My post was more joking than anything. But, if somehow it did happen, I wouldn't be upset about it (even if I already owned one). It wouldn't the the first investment that went south.

    I agree. I would not be upset either. It is far better to have the ability to buy/build a new MG over any loss of investment.
