I have a dream, /k/. I have a dream that one day, I'll get out of the Army and become a civilian again. I'll go to school, get a degree, and then get a cushy civilian job. And I want to get involved in shooting competitions. Specifically, handgun competitions. What I ask of you, /k/omrades, is that you give me some helpful tips and info on this subject. Also, post some sexy 1911 porn. Or whatever pistols you think are best for competition.
legality question - manufacturing related

According to US federal law an individual who may legally own a gun (citizen, non-felon, sane, adult, not an ijit) may manufacture a firearm for their own personal use. The firearm must meet all legal requirements that any other gun must meet to be legal. (barrel length, overall length, non-auto, under .50 cal).
Some companies sell 80% receivers, being legally viewed as hunks of metal because they cannot function as a firearm until they are worked on with some form of tooling.
I'm wondering - at what point does the extreme come into question? When is the hunk of steel a full fledged firearm? Does it rest on the significance of a single hole, a single twist of a tap or the pass of a file?
Have their been any court cases to set a model?
