It is funny how all the "do not comply" complainers didn't seem to have a problem with getting a stamp for an SBR until the brace & amnesty kerfuffle came to the forefront.How else is the AVERAGE American using a brace?
I tried a few braces. Because like everyone else I wanted a SBR without having to go the Form 1/NFA route. Every style I tried was a knock off stock version. They were soft, would fold up depending on shooting position position, and simply (IN MY OPINION) looked goofy.
Once I realized how easy the Form 1 process was I will never go back. The only benefit to the brace/pistol is crossing state lines. Well, I live in Oregon. Cali is a no-go and so is Washington now….
I'm no operator. I don't roll around with a "truck gun." If I'm traveling I'm content with my daily carry as self defense. No worries on my end. Yea, yea…. A pistol is there to fight your way to a rifle. I got it.
I went Form 1 because a SBR is much more pleasant to shoot and shoulder than a brace. That's it. I enjoy it much more with a stock. And if I get to the point where I am forced to travel with a weapon the NFA is going to be the last of my concerns.
Again. Before everyone starts throwing stones, calling me arrogant, etc. these are the reason I (key word I) went with a SBR over brace. I tried the brace. Wasn't a fan. So I went with a Form 1.
If people like braces more power to them.
I am not a fan of most SBRs - with stock or with brace, either way - but to each their own.
