    I wonder if it is a pistol with a brace and the arresting officers were unfamiliar? Be interesting to see a picture of the offending firearm.
    Seems unlikely a firearm guy would flash an illegal firearm knowingly

    I suppose it's possible he was both an idiot and exceeding drunk

    I'm not sure, I'm not very knowledgeable on things I can't afford :D

    Could be this one? http://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/166.272

    I'm surprised he was released on $5k bail.

    Well, at least it had a 30-round "clip" and the safety was off...

    Oh scat!

    As always, there's a lot more to the incident than the media "reports".

    By the way, someone makes a "short barreled" AR style pistol which is legal to own without Uncle's permission.

    Hope that all turns out well.

    If his comments were accurate.....fubar!

    And he kicked out the cop car window!
    He's screwed.

    I'm sure the "rifle" was actually a pistol and they are just ignorant and want to pad the charges.

    He needs a good lawyer that can blame the alcohol about his comments.

    But being wasted and having a loaded, safety off AR15 is not a good way to go.

    It's possibly that's the one they were using, but the link doesn't list the definition of terms, which are usually included.

    Came in to say this. What do you want to bet it has a KAK shockwave or Thordsen and these guys jumped the proverbial gun.

    Umm, ya you think "According to court records, it appeared alcohol may have played a factor in Fay’s behavior."

    They showed up because he called 911 7 times to complain about the Homeless problem, what a dumbbubblegum

    I bet you it was a pistol. If he was an avid collector, there is no way he'd be dumb enough to make an SBR.

    I too will chime in and say: Lets see this supposed SBR.

    If this is in fact an illegal SBR, how do you guys think it'll play out in court?

    Bear's Hair Imperial Stout
    10% ABV, well roasted stout with coffee, testosterone, oysters and skunk cabbage root.
    Turns you into a drunken, raging bull, as demonstrated, and the next day you smell like last week's garbage.
