    A Pic You Won't See Every Day

    I've long had a thing for WWII Subguns and I've been after an MP40 for more than 20 years. I knew GSG sold 22 rimfire versions of lots of cool guns but the rimfires just don't do anything for me. I couldn't afford a BD3008 and those got prohibited anyway. So when I discovered GSG makes a 9mm version of the MP40 I had to have one to go with my other SMGs.

    This is a pic you just won't see all that often.

    Can totally see where the US got the inspiration for the Grease Gun

    Its not the real thing and it has a few minor period incorrect issues but it is cheaper and easier to get than a 12-3 MP40 and can actually be taken out and shot.

    Is a business licence that covers prohibited devices something you have had since the classification system came into being? Does it allow you to purchase new to you prohibs? And finally, if you dissolve your company and your business license, is the prohibited devices designation gone for good? Or can you start a new business and still be able to possess prohibited devices?

    Feel free to decline to answer, I am just curious.

    A business licence is just that, a business licence. I has nothing to do with the 12x classification system. Gunsmiths, gun shops, museums, distributors etc all have essentially the same licence.

    There are a number of different classifications and business activities that can be chosen by the business. Things like retail sales, commercial sales, ammunition sales, restricted, non-restricted, prohibited firearms, import, export etc, etc. As a business you choose the things you want and pay the corresponding fee.

    A new business licence can be applied for at any time. There are a number of hoops that have to be jumped through but there is no reason new businesses can't be started. I have heard they clamped down on new business licences because people were using them as an excuse to have the good stuff. They also started limiting the number of activities a business has on its licence. It was a lot easier to get a business licence 15 years ago when we started ours.

    A firearms business licence can be granted to a Sole Proprietorship (a person) or an Incorporated Corporation. In the case of a corporation, a person can possess and use whatever items the business licence allows, as an agent of the corporation.
