Canberra's experts selling valuables
150,000+ buyers nationally

I want a gun.

big black gun

Would the 16 guns stolen from a shipping container in Fyshwick be for sale on the black market in Canberra?

The police said they could be worth tens of thousands of dollars. Personally I’d like a big black gun.

How much should I expect to pay? 

Does a gun black market exist in the ACT. Has anyone ever been offered a dodgy gun to buy?

An alpaca packs more heat. I know, I have a pair of alpaca socks.

The number of lawless individuals alpacing heat has me very a-lamaed…

I used to work with someone who had a m60 buried in his backyard but no ammo lol. He seemed to think he could make rounds himself somehow but didn’t because he couldn’t be bothered.

Its a good thing that this firearm is now out of circulation and in the hands of the authorities.

That is assuming you did the right thing and reported it to the police.

But of course you did, anyone who knew this sort of information and didn’t take it to the police would certainly have no right to ever comment on law and order issues on a public forum.

oh wow. how is this for a comment on law and order. I did indeed report it to the old woden police station. They said where is your proof, i said i had none besides he was bragging like a tool and provided a picture when we told him he was full of it.

police said we are not going to dig up someones entire yard becuase you say he has a fire arm buried in it unless you can get actual evidence.

i said fair enough and left.

You’ll first need a gnu license.

Ah, the old 60. Glorious days at Holsworthy doing ambushes when the pistol grip fell off.

Runaway gun!

Happened to me once, fell apart during a nice healthy game of fire and movement and I actually found another retaining pin that someone else had lost on the past, circular karma. I still remember hearing the story of the M60 with the blank firing barrel taking down an F1-11 during some exercise in the past, The bolt on the end apparently came off during a full auto burst and flew into the intake of plane as it did a low sweeping pass. I always thought it was BS, but who knows?

Since when was conscience a precursor to commenting on law and order? 🙂

M60 rounds themselves probably wouldn’t be that hard to get hold of. Of course the linking clips may be a problem these days, though I suppose someone could have a go at making them. In the old days you could have picked them up off the ground if you knew where to look.

This is what they should do in the U.S, i.e. ban the ammo.

They still have the right to bear arms, they just can’t get hold of any rounds to use the thing.

Of course, the Second Amendment (and one could argur their Constitution) is so outdated it isn’t funny. For a start, the federal government has a standing army these days. Kind of nullifies the reason for the Second Amendment.
