I know I’m usually a bit quiet outside of showing up to Caddo, but I’m finally slowing down a bit and prepping for my FEL.
I am in a bit of an odd spot though, and will likely need to use contingency storage.
My primary FEL purpose is research and development, with only sparse testing of actual material throughout the year. As such, my magazine is mostly going to be empty. I have property an hour and a half south of dallas I could technically put the magazine on, however if the ATF showed up it’s a lot of time to get out there (and likely would take away from my primary occupation). The current plan is such that I actually don’t store anything, and it would be drop shipped as testing occurs (most of it is computer modeled well in advance then a week of testing every so often, etc). At the same time, even the ATF recommended after some long talks to look for contingency, as the property is shared by people who are not on the license otherwise.
I would need contingency in a type II magazine; I have a mobile type two magazine that can be stored indoors, but I cannot use it myself currently because my business is located in Dallas proper. Even if the magazine is empty, it cannot be in the area without rezoning. Either I can use this as my day box when I have things drop shipped (immobilized overnight when I am on the blast site), or if someone has the space and proper zoning I don’t mind renting to leave it otherwise. I do not intend to store anything except as a fallback (weather significantly delays testing beyond a full week, or some other unforeseeable event)
If anyone is open to this, or knows someone who is, I would appreciate it. I hope to see everyone at another event soon.
