It may be up but it sure seems slow.

Handguns / Re: 1911 is better than Glock

Hell, I'd even take my Sig over one...

That's a no brainer!
Three 226s and not a single Glock. However, if someone has a nice 34 at a good price, I could probably be tempted.


That's almost correct - although customary, and almost always the case, a PPT does not need to be with both parties *at the same time.*

The seller can visit the FFL to drop off the firearm to be transfered before the buyer visits. Caveat being that the ffl has to be willing, and that all monies for the transaction happen outside the ffl.

That's a BIG caveat!

I have never spoken to an ffl that would be willing to do a PPT unless both parties were present. I have sold 4 pistols using PPT and had to be present each time. I for one, would never give up possession of a firearm unless I had the money in hand and all of my buyers wanted to examine the firearm before parting with their money.

Anything is better than a Glock.

Even a Hi-Point?   ???

I have a question. If I were to buy a hand gun via PPT from someone out of state and fail the backround check. What would happen to the hand gun?
Your question is ambiguous.  As neomedic said, PPT generally refers to what is known in California as a private party transfer.  Both parties must be California residents and both must be present at the FFL's place of business at the same time.  In other words, it must be a face to face transaction.  You cannot do what is generally referred to as a PPT if the seller is out of state.  On the other hand, if you were merely saying that the seller is an out of state resident, the answer depends on how the firearm is shipped into California.  If it comes from an FFL, then the California FFL could return it to the shipping FFL.  However, if it came from a private party, the California FFL could not ship it back to a private party in another state.  The only exception that I know of is where a private party ships a firearm to a gunsmith for repair and the gunsmith ships it back after the repair, ie no transfer of ownership.  Furthermore, in your case the handgun would have to be on the present roster.  I do not know of any FFLs that would accept a handgun from an out of state private party.  Too many problems and the very real possibility that the handgun would not be on the roster and could not be sold to anyone other than a LEO.

First, does anyone have an estimated time when .net will be back up?
Although I do not know just how it works, when I tried to do a DNS lookup on it could not return a numeric IP address.  So it appears to me the the problem is more than just the servers that runs on and extends to DNS servers.  Anyone know more?
