Aloha Barebow!

Welcome Aboard! All the way from the Netherlands? Very Cool, Sir!

Those pics are really awesome and ones that I am sure you are proud of! Keep the pics coming! There are a few here that have the real deal M14 rifles in their possession, so you will be in good company!

BTW: The board asks if the pics can be set to a maximum of 400 pixels wide. Please let me know if I can help in this for you. I will, with your permission, modify these pictures to fit the boards requirements. Please let me know if you would like me to modify the pics for you.

Aloha, Best Wishes and Welcome Aboard!

Imagine a shop with "a whole bunch of M14's" !!!!!!

How to you say "holy [email protected]!" in Dutch?

You could run a shooting resort for traveling M14 aficionados from the States. Lodging, a guided tour or two, good food, and a few days at the range shooting the 14!

Very nice. It is sincerely a pleasure to see that rifle alive, well, and being enjoyed in the Netherlands.

Hi and Welcome,
What are the requirements to own an M14 in the Netherlands? Are the rifles modified so that they are no longer capable of full auto fire?

Regards

Hi PapaFoxtrot what you says about the resort we got the ideas now we are looking for a right location! indoor the range wil be at least 300meters rifle range and 100meters pistol range and we can combine them if we want a Dynamic range !
and of cource a good place to eat and a large arms shop !
al the plans are there but it can stil take a while for OK of the county!
Its geting more and more difficult here in Holland to start somting like this !
Last week there was a killing here in Holland in the town Kerkrade a former marine arms specialist shot 4 people this guy had a training centre were you can shoot, workout ,eat and buy guns and then he pul a stunt like this !! these things wil not make it easyer to get a building permit so we wait and hope !! :roll:

Hi Oxmix The requirements are that you must have the age of 18 years old and no criminal records .
you must be a member of a shooting club for at least a year for you can buy your own weapon then its no problem .
The barrel lenght of a rifle may not be shorter then 32 cm and no fullauto.
But in Belgium (about 2hours drive) you can shoot almost every thing and some fullauto there is a gun club there its great.
On my M14 the selector is gone but i ordered a new one in the US !!
PS. a old new one!!!

Barebow,

I would NOT want to be on the receiving end while you've got that bow pulled back. I bet you hit what you aim at with that, too!

Best of luck with your plans for the range facility. With your passion, it will be great.

Sorry to hear that you have idiots (crazies?) over there too, who do terrible things and ruin the situation for the everyone. The bad guys play and the good guys pay. Good luck in spite of the bad news.
