  3. Here is a summary of 4 bills that are currently in the Ohio legislature. All four were argued in committee yesterday, June 20. I would guess that some portion of these will get passed (likely in 2018 or possibly this December) but I wouldn't look for all of them to be passed as they are. However it works out, some of these contain MAJOR changes to Ohio concealed carry law. House Bill 142, sponsored by state Representative Scott Wiggam (R-1), would remove the requirement that a concealed handgun licensee notify a law enforcement officer that they are carrying a concealed handgun when stopped for a law enforcement purpose, like a routine traffic stop. House Bill 228, sponsored by state Representatives Terry Johnson (R-90) and Sarah LaTourette (R-76), would expand circumstances under which a person has no duty to retreat before using force in self-defense. Further, this bill would shift the burden of proof to the state, so the state would have to prove beyond reasonable doubt that a person charged with an offense that involved the use of force against another, did not use that force in self-defense. HB 228 would also reduce certain concealed handgun offenses to minor misdemeanors and eliminate the mandatory posting of signs that warn against the conveyance of a deadly weapon onto specified premises. House Bill 233, sponsored by state Representative John Becker (R-65), would state that a concealed handgun licensee or qualified military member would not be guilty of violating the firearms prohibition if found carrying a firearm in a prohibited place, but would be asked to leave the property. House Bill 201, sponsored by state Representatives Ron Hood (R-78) and Thomas Brinkman, Jr. (R-27), would repeal the requirement to obtain a license in order to carry concealed. The current CHL system would be left intact for those who wish to participate in reciprocal concealed carry permit agreements. Further, HB 201 would remove the requirement that a licensee notify a law enforcement officer that they are carrying a concealed handgun when stopped for a law enforcement purpose.

    Hey YoungVet you'll be able to create classifieds now that you've made a post. I'll be keeping an eye out for your listing as I've been looking for an SKS an AK47's lately too.
  9. New and Looking to Move

    Hey guys! New to the forum and looking to sell a Romanian SKS (with mods!). Trying to move to Colorado soon and don't feel like dealing with the legalities of my magazines. (Just trying to figue out how to get access to post a classified ad!)
  10. The only real ambiguity is that Ohio doesn't define the term "shotgun". It simply says a shotgun with a barrel less than 18" or with an overall length of less than 26" is a dangerous ordnance. Since they don't define "shotgun", the issue is whether or not this is a shotgun. Under federal law, the definition of shotgun specifically states that a shotgun is a gun that was designed to be shouldered. Since this was never designed from the manufacturer to have a shoulder stock, the feds have said it is not a shotgun. But since Ohio doesn't have such a definition, the ambiguity is whether Ohio courts will follow the federal definition or use one of their own. I personally think using a different definition is problematic for a number of reasons, but who knows what courts will do.
  11. You can. Just follow TSA guidelines: https://www.tsa.gov/travel/transporting-firearms-and-ammunition I usually advise to use original box if possible because that creates no confusion or ambiguity at all.
  12. It's one cool looking gun there David. I do have some concerns regarding the legality of it in ohio and hope that those get cleared up real soon once and for all.
  13. Can I put the ammo in a box that isn't tpfrom the manufacturer?
  14. Yeah, seems to be a lot of questions regarding the legality of it still, at the very least a lot of confusion. Lots of people throwing ORC's around but no real clear answer or guidelines about the thing yet. Figured the worst that could happen is having to return it (or I guess jail time could be worse :D) Took it out to the range today, got a lot of funny looks from people for sure. I thought the recoil would be terrible on it, but it wasn't at all. Keeping the hand inside the fore-end strap must be key to controlling the recoil on it.

  16. Haven't seen anything official from other Prosecutors, but I have had some FFL dealers inquire about it. I come down on the side that since Ohio law doesn't define "shotgun" that we should use the definition that Federal Code uses, since that would be the commonly understood meaning in this context. As such, this should not be a "shotgun" under the Revised Code for the purposes of the definition of a "short barreled shotgun" in the dangerous ordnance definition. Be cautioned though, because I have talked informally to other prosecutors who ignore that and think a "shotgun" is a shotgun regardless of whether it is designed to be shouldered. To me, this would then mean any smooth barreled pistol designed to shoot bird shot would be a short barreled shotgun, which is absurd. But don't expect the ATF to beat down your door because they've already approved it. What you have to worry about is local prosecutors applying (or misapplying) Ohio law to charge you with a state crime of possessing an unregistered dangerous ordnance. I THINK you'll be fine, but like I said, I haven't seen anything official from Ohio yet. Anyway, enjoy it. I'm sure it will be fun to shoot and make a good home defense gun. I like having the stock on my defense shotgun, but wouldn't hesitate for one minute to grab one of these.

  18. I was out for a car trip enjoying the nice weather today and stopped by a gun store down in Defiance Ohio called Hammers Tactical. I saw an ad online the night before and they had a Mossberg 590 Shockwave for sale in the store. After a quick email to ensure it was okay for Ohio residents to buy them after the hoopla that's been following them online I figured I'd give it a shot. Long story short, walked right in, paid, of course, did the paperwork and walked right back out with it. No ATF agents or anything was awaiting me upon leaving so I figured that was a good sign. Just got back with it and can't wait to take it out to shoot this weekend. Looks like a lot of fun for sure.

    I was just thinking the same thing, craftsmanship is evident.
  25. I agree with part of your reply, I think what we were talking about was that having witness's support what happened and that you were justified using deadly force. I don't think I conveyed that very well. But very true about "civil law".
  26. This is great! I'll make use of this article for a while to come.
