Just about everytime I place my finger on the trigger I get a "General Protection Fault at Page 001001:0fd100 Please press RESET or wait for the system to respond".

Then when I reboot it says "Your gun was not properly shut down. Now checking the magazine for your round."

5 minutes later as it's bringing up the OS screen I get a new error, "VMM64.vxd file not found or missing. Please return to vendor for repair."

So I packed each individual part in it's own separate box labeled "WARNING!! GUN PARTS!! KEEP SEPARATE!!" And took it down to the UBS station after calling the local precinct with my vehicle licence number and my "Non-reponsive target shooting" licence number to let them know the EXACT time I would be on the road and the EXACT route. Fortunately I was able to give them enough time to clear the streets for me.

The clerk took each box individually with gloved hands into the back to separate trucks and charged me the usual $100.00 "hazardous materials" fee + the $30.00 postage + the $45.00 for overnight delivery, as per the law.

He took the numbers of my licenses and my fingerprints and retinal scan, and swiped my BLUE CARD for $700.00.

The policeman that had acompanied me escorted me out and watched until I was off the station's property.

I'm so glad to live in the good 'ol USA where we have the right to keep and bear an arm...

I had the same problem once and I peed on it and it rebooted. I am afraid I cant keep this up for long. If I turn it in they will give back my Medicare.

Better days to be,

Having returned from my latest and final S&W's Armorer update course (yay retirement!), I can share these factory insights with you:

The saliva tester works well if you don't use lead bullets. Old fashion lead bullets tend to confuse the DNA tester. This is not a factory defect as it is part of the inherent safety design built into the gun. You see, S&W knows there are a lot of reloaders who cast or swage old fashion lead bullets - something banned by the EPA years ago. Once a lead film builds up on the saliva tester, it's programmed to lock up. Rather than send it back to the factory for replacement, if you can find an old gun cleaning product, "Wipe Away", it will remove the lead and restore the functioning of the saliva tester.

In the future, refrain from using cast/swage lead reloads, or old bullets containing lead, and stick to factory loaded nerf safety rounds.

Boy, you guys are fouled up. I had all my S&W operational questions resolved with one quick phone call to President Janet Reno at the White House.

Hey Buzz-knox, he can't possibly be insane, don't you remember the full battery of tests they did on our minds when we paid our $1500.00 to apply for our application form to
get the tests that we needed to prove that we were worthy of being consitered for an application to possibly have a handgun?

Then we had to do the same thing all over agian when they "lost" our test results.

After all, it's for our own protection.

Hi guys

Sorry it took so long for a reply, but the Federal government's new filtering software for the Internet has blocked out TFL. I'm using a "cracker" that a friend developed, but we know we don't have long, since all overseas posts are automatically monitored.

Now that firearms are totally banned in Australia, I feel much safer. The police demonstrated their new "microwave brain scrambler" on TV last night; let's see any crim face that!! So far, though, it's only been tested on a small crowd -- some radicals holding a small protest against the gun laws. It was funny to those old folks clutching their heads as their brains were literally cooked! Sure made a change from watching that new "Combat to the Death" show on TV that everyone's raving about. I mean, when you've seen one person killed, it gets a bit ho-hum, you know?

Anyway, I'm still a gunowner at heart. My real guns were taken and crushed, but they didn't know I still have a compound bow and a beautiful Spanish-made replica of a Colt .45 -- ol' Slabsides. I like to take it out and clean and oil it -- just feel the weight in my hand and remember. It even "ka-klunks" like the real thing used to!

Anyway, now I'm back on line, I'll be able to post more often.

Gotta go now, there's headlights coming up the driveway and someone at the doo .....................................................................

You people make me sick. You had your chance to become Citizens just like every one else. It was the best decision I've made since I retired from the United Nations Air Force.

As you know Citizens can, without restrictions, own any Balistic Projection Device (BPD) we want to.

It's not too late for you! Join the winning team. Your scan-chip implant operation is free. All your uniforms are paid for, and I must say our new Black Tunics look great.

I just returned from my yearly 6 month citizen service commitment, and it was wonderful. You people say you want to shoot guns, then join! As a Citizen you'll sure get your chance. Not just paper targets either, if you know what I mean

Sorry to post so late to this thread, my informants just notified me that some old TLF'ers had hacked into the Federal Net to resurrect TFL.

I am sticking my neck out for ya'll, but if you can find a blackmarket doc to remove your implants, head south; that is all I can say. We have an underground railroad that will help you dissappear. Be warned, if you try to come in with any implants you will be disemboweled on sight.

Currently we are negotiating with the Nation of Texas for asylum and refuge for our sick and wounded.

Tamara, Sensop, I hope you didn't betray your positions by posting.

About to lose transmission capabilities, evidently Feds have found our transmitter. We have a rifle waiting on you, if you can make it to us.

I just got my new brown nose Audio Ballistic Projection Device (ABPD) and I just love it. I got the fully chromed model. I decided to get the high capacity mag on it. You know the one that not only has the "Please don't hurt me" voice, but also has the "My that's a nice outfit you have on today", and "The expensive stuff is in the living room" options. Mine came with the 2 piece voice rod but one side keeps coming loose, and the stereo feature is all out of wack, so I think that I will use some tape and just cover up one of the sides, and leave it at that for now. If this doesn't fix it I will just have to replace it with a one piece.

This unit comes with the dual ambi safety feature where you can lick either the butt or the barrel for the saliva test. I also decided to get it equipped with the extended thumb slide volume control, and a polished feed ramp so that the words don't come out all garbled but are clear and enunciated. Next I think that I will get the night sights so that it will give me an indication which way not to point the thing if it's very dark out.

I didn't get this piece as much for self defense, but just rather to show off at the range pointing it at the tofu doughnuts at the range. By the way I was able to get a 2 inch group of voices at 25 yds. the other day with out too much deviation. Man I love this thing.

Next I think that I will start reloading my own. I hear with one of those progressive presses you can get about 10 to 20 letters per min. into a cartridge, and can load almost a whole mags worth of ammo in 2-3 hours.

Greetings from the Free Zone! We've finally hacked our way through. I'd like to share with you an old song from our last civil war:

"Tramp, tramp, tramp, the boys are marching,
Cheer up comrades, they will come!
And beneath the starry flag
We will breathe the air again,
In the free land that's our own beloved home."
