I can't afford a lawyer and I'll never take a plea on something that is bullcrap.
There is a madness to my method!
The client explained to his lawyer what the "gun" was and it's state. The lawyer, being a firearms enthusiast himself knew exactly what he was talking about.
Mr Lawyer calls up the detachment and asks to speak to the cop. He asks the cop if he knew how a rifle worked. Well holy crap...Mr Cop gets all defensive and says something along the lines of "Of course I do." The lawyer asks him if the gun was locked up in the evidence locker. The cop says yes. The lawyer asks him if he would please go and open the bolt on it. The cop feels incredibly insulted and thinks the lawyer is just belittling him. He protested rather fearcely, but after being calmly asked a few more times, he says fine. The lawyer says he'll wait on the phone while he does it. After a few minutes, the cop comes back on the line and says...And I quote..."It's stuck." The lawyer suggests that he talk to his staff sergeant about it, and then asks the cop to ask the staff to call him back when they were done.
The seargent calls back, all apologetic...Said his client was being released immediately, and "Would you please ask your client not to sue us."
NEVER......EVER.....Underestimate the ignorance you may have to deal with when it comes to a hot n' bothered cop. Some, even when led right to the problem, call a welded closed bolt 'stuck'.

I hope the police got sued.
Not wishing to derail the thread, do we have any full, confirmed knowledge of anyone being successfully charged with possession of a Butler Creek 25 round mag? If I am correct the CC does not support the RCMP's determination and the phrase "originally designed for" still stands as the law of the land.
By successfully charged, I mean convicted in court and not bullied in a hearing etc.
"Chances are your relatives would not have picked you either"
...from the Graz family crest.
If they seize your mag and don't charge you with anything, can you have the LEO charged with theft?
We're kin cuz we shoot! What we shoot, and what we shoot at, shouldn't matter!
