I spotted a couple of nice looking 1:1 scale replicas of the German P-08 and P-38 pistols in a catalog. The P-38 features a working slide action. Cool paper weight to further clutter my desk, I thought. Only $100. Then I see "Handguns cannot ship to CT, KS, MA, MN, CA, WI or NY".
The ad says "For Display Only", but does not say they are non-firing. Is this some new bureaucratic bull s**t? Are they afraid someone's going try to commit armed robbery with one of these? I've seen plastic squirt guns that are very realistic; maybe those should be outlawed, too, although I remember reading about some poor black kid that was shot to death by LEOs while wielding such a toy.
If anyone is interested, they can probably be viewed online at www.BUDK.com
