I wasn't sure this place still existed. /k/ on the other place is crazy. I haven't been into guns or cared for the opinions og others in a while. Its been what? 8 years? A while.

My old mail got trashed and I lost contact with everybody but it was for the best. I moved back to Germany for a couple years to get healthy (sounds crazy) and had to get sober. My drug use got out of control. Seriously out of control. I needed to be around what remains of my family and shake it.

I won't say not to ever do drugs. Just know you have to stop eventually.

But I'm back in US, paying child support, living the dream.

Just a minor update. I lost a LOT of guns moving (Except Walther P88. I had that with the Bank.) And my AK74. That one hurt because so hard to find now. I'm always going to be an AK Zapman. One day I guess.

Anyways, who is still here? Has anyone died?

Swissguy, Col. Guano, Maxillary, meplat, Hind Fangirl, Zeptorem, Yattuwort, Balci, GOTB?

I heard Gospel Man had some trouble. We did NOT get along but I did at least respect him. How is he?

So, since last I saw you post....

Lost 100 pounds.
Got married 4 years ago.
Got diagnosed diabetic going on 2 year ago now, which I find hilarious because I had already lost the weight and had quit smoking cigs.
My wife almost died twice.
We've lived through 2 miscarriages, one in September, the other this past February.
Dad died of Pancreatic cancer just a little over a year ago.
Lost my mentor back in 2016.

It's been a wild past several years.

Tesla makes a stainless steel DeLorean-esque electric truck shaped like a pyramid.
Using a rigid unibody construction of thick stainless steel from Tesla's space plane designs that can take sledgehammer blows without denting very much, as opposed to DeLorean's thin stainless steel over a fiberglass frame that causes that time machine car to fold up into death traps on bad collisions (and if she flips onto her roof, good luck opening those gull-wing doors). Tesla also boasted of their Cybertruck's "bulletproof" windows, but throwing metal balls at the side windows shatters them like any other window, to the derisive laughs of the crowd at the launch demonstration.

I don't want this to become a blog post, besides it isn't hard to figure out my IRL identity, and I have retained a lawyer for this as it seems clear that my wife was not at fault. Thusly, I may be vauge at times. This is a sort of warning so that other operators, wanna be operators, boogloo-ers, etc. are better prepared in life.

This past Thursday my wife was involved in a pretty horrible car wreck about 1.5m from home. She was on her way home from work when she got tboned and rolled a few times. Long short of everything, she needed to be cut out of the car with a saw and the JoL, and then flown to a hospital about an hour away. Surgury went well, and I should be able to take her home tomorrow. Docs think she will make a full recovery over the next 8 or so weeks.

I have seen some pretty horrible shit in my life. I worked farm labor before the Marine Corps, and saw people lose limbs to machinery there. In the Corps, while I never participated in combat myself, I transported wounded Marines, participated in their care, and handled a couple of dead bodies. In all of those previous times, even when I knew and cared about the victim, I managed to keep my composure and not lose my head.

I got the call about my wife's accident from a number I never saw before, I almost ignored it. When I arrived at the scene, and saw the mangled mess of her car, I couldn't keep my cool. I initially though there was no way she was alive, there wasn't enough car left. Even after I saw she was alive and concious, I couldn't think. EMT had me move out of the area while the firemen cut her out. The closet I got to her the whole time was right before they loaded her on to the helicopter and I got a chance to kiss her.

I didn't go into full hysterics, but I've never lost my cool in a stressful situation like that before...and I've been thinking about that.

If I die before my wife, I have set up a detailed will and set of instructions for both my wife and family. Life insurance will pay off the house and for my cremation, then my wife can go willy nilly witht the left overs. I even stipulated in an attached note that I expect at least 30days of strict victorian styled morning, with a demand that my wife get on tinder after the morning period because she is still alive and I fully expect her to live on and have a real life.

It has never once occured to me, "What if my wife dies first?". When I worked on the farms, I knew it was dangerous work, and I was prepared for that. Same thing with the Corps, I knew Marines can get fucked up and killed, and I was prepared for that. I was not prepared for my wife to get seriously injured or killed. My brain had never once run through that scenario. I was caught with my pants down, and I was useless (although I realize that even if my cool had been kept, the EMTs would have still wanted me out of their way).

SCA is the common one, but MS is the other likely option, one of those is a bit scarier than the other.

If it's SCA there is a really promising possibility of treatment with CRISPR in the relatively near future.

Update on my wife:

>2 steel plates in her arm
>insurance is fighting us on the hospital stay (broken arm surgury is an outpatient procedure according to them, and low potassium after surgury is apparently not a reason for the hospital to keep her after surgury, eventhough the doctors made it very clear she wouldn't be released until her potassium was back to normal levels)
>insurance is NOT fighting us on the air ambulance bill. I was legit surprized by that.
>took over 30 days to get the crash report, and the officer must have been drunk when he was writing it. There are multiple mistakes on every page of it. Lawyer is aware of this.
>other driver was apparently doing 5 over the speedlimit, and 30 over the "safe speed for conditions"
>report says my wife was making an unsafe left turn, and the report is wrong about WHERE she was turning, by about 150'
>GAP coverage and Insurance both FINALLY came through, so my wife pulled 3k from her trust fund (her mom died of cancer, and was smart enought to set up trust funds to keep medicaid from eating her kids inheritance), and bought a replacement vehicle
>she is back to work fulltime

Ok I'm being a bit overly dramatic here, but for the first time since moving to VA (and now currently looking at the prospect of staying in VA for the next 5 or so years; my wife got her dream job at a newspaper and I want to help her cultivate her career like she has helped me) I am actually worried about my 2a and frankly 1a rights (maybe I am just constantly hearing the furthest left craziness related to 1a stuff as I am on a college campus 50% of my waking hours). NPR didn't allieviate my fears this morning. I forsee a lot of frankly asinine bills being pushed through in the name of "common sense" and "social justice".

I guess I need to start buying standard capacity magazines and 80% recievers before all of the fun stuff gets banned/restricted...

On the other side of things I think a full Republican rule wouldn't be much better. Single party rule is never a good thing.

I moved to VA not too long ago. Similar deal to OP. Wife got into grad school in the area and fortunately I found it relatively easy to find comparable work. Similar exposure to the college campus and well-to-do environment too but I'm keen to remember that it's a large state and it's major metropolitan areas that typically lean left are few. I don't advocate for either mainstream political party because bipartisanship is a false dichotomy only subscribed to by non-thinkers. I think the Republican-leaning constituents were lulled into a false sense of security by who occupies the White House and the party responsible for preventing that laziness failed to do so.

I've already started looking at investing in more magazines since that always seems to be a "feature" the gun control movement likes to target. I may look to increase my ammunition stock too since there's so much talk of limiting those purchases or making them restricted to FFLs. I may look to invest in more stripped (or 80%) AR lowers to make builds easier in the future without breaking the bank now, but that also assumes uppers don't become controlled. That said, I think I have my bases for AR uppers covered for any possible barrel length and popular caliber but investing in more is a relatively simple way of flexing more capability out of one gun that doesn't show up on "gun purchase" statistics.

  Going on a Ride-Along with the Australian Police - The Jim Jefferies Show
https://youtu.be/KlLbEYT0m14
2:46 In Australia, 22 police officers were killed on the job between 2003 and 2016, but last year, in 2018, 55 police officers in the US were shot and killed.

The annual number of US police officers killed has fallen by more than 65 percent since 1976, but the number of people US police kill remains relatively high, at around a thousand people per year. Last year police shot and killed 998 people, 11 more than the 987 they fatally shot in 2017. In 2016, police killed 963 people, and 995 in 2015. About 54 percent of those killed have been armed with guns and 4 percent unarmed.

Four years in a row, police nationwide fatally shoot nearly 1,000 people: https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/four-years-in-a-row-police-nationwide-fatally-shoot-nearly-1000-people/2019/02/07/0cb3b098-020f-11e9-9122-82e98f91ee6f_story.html

Libtards in Canada have passed more gun control aimed directly at the already ridiculously and humiliatingly gagged and muzzled legal owners. I vehemently disagree with all forms of gun control so just the concept of the licensing system in Canada is repulsive, but it looks like my dream of eventually moving to the States might not be a dream anymore, but a necessity. Canada has been very hostile to gun owners for a long time, but now it really looks like it's gonna go full UK. Main issue beyond normally H1B Visa shenanigans is the bunches of guns that I don't really want to give up. You'd think it would be simple like sell them up here and buy new ones in the states, and normally that would be fine. The problem is that I literally have 3 firearms that don't exist in the USA. I do not want to part with these unicorns. There are quite a few more that are pretty damn hard to find in the States so re-buying them would be difficult and very expensive.

What do? Any of you lads know of ways to work something out with dealer samples or wizardry like that?

Thankfully, I do have some time. Right now, we aren't yet being rounded up and shot behind the horse cop shed. I just want to see what I need to sacrifice and what I can save, and how. There is an election coming up, so it's hard to tell how fast shit will go south for us. If the conservatives win, we might be ok for another few years, still, I'd rather explore these subjects sooner rather than later.

P.S. Thanks Frost for your ongoing help with this, just wanted to see if more heads would be better.
P.P.S. I can post my qualifications and experience if anyone might have contact with companies that might be interested in H1B'ing my maple butt.

Maybe an immigration attorney could help you. Finding a good one of those to get in touch with (ideally one in a gun-friendly state and who is gun-friendly themselves) won't necessarily get you easy answers or instructions, but I'm sure guns aren't the only thing people worry about bringing with them when they immigrate. Other legally controlled items or property are probably pretty common. A good immigration attorney would at least knows what statutes and whatnot to research for you. But their advice could get spendy.

>immigration attorney
I hadn't even considered that, this is definitely relevant to my situation. I'm prepared for these kinds of various costs as I've been saving up for a while because I know immigration is expensive. Geographically, I'm very close to Montana and Idaho. As far as I know, both those states are pretty friendly to guns and I would be pretty happy to live there.

Legalese, sadly, is obviously not exactly my strength. I think I'll make a list of questions to as an immigration attorney so I can make the most of his expensive time. Seeing how I don't know much about this, I highly appreciate suggestions here.

As for "controlled goods", I don't think I have that much to worry about. Are there items that are hard to import aside from the obvious "14.5x114mm PTRD and ammo"? I own a car, some metalworking tools, a computer, clothes, a DSLR camera, and other regular household items. I don't have stuff like fireworks or "chemistry supplies" or "biological agents". I don't think I own anything that can bother a geiger counter, including scopes and stuff as I haven't purchased optics with tritium.

Hey bru, it occurs to me that you might consider reading in some other, less fucked up and more qualified operator on some of your specific concerns. I'm more than happy to help, but I might not be the best nigga for the job at the moment, and I want you helped.
