Yes, I got the message and tried to return the call but got no answer. I appreciate your interest in our BFG-50A; I’m sure it would be an excellent addition to your department’s arsenal. Unfortunately, we have a policy of selling to state law enforcement agencies only what is allowed to be sold to private citizens in that state. Since the passage of the NY SAFE act, the BFG-50A is considered an assault weapon and as such is no longer available to private citizens in the state of New York. Therefore we have to respectfully decline to supply your department with BFG-50A rifles.

Now tell me, what does a police department need a .50 cal for anyway?

    And the wolf disguised as a kindly grandmother replied, "the better to kill and suppress you, my dear, when you don't do as granny instructs. It's all for your own good and safety, of course. Remember always, granny loves you..."

    And they all lived happily forever and ever....

  2. All these companys are awesome as hell for doing this, but all this is for nothing unless the big guys, Colt, Glock, etc do the same, as well as ammo manufacturers. The bad guys are gaining momentum, and its only a short time til something happens and things get hot stateside.
