    A mg 422 without base is up for auction. Bid starts at 18.000 USD, plus a 20.5 % online premium, plus a 17.5 % buyers premium and you must have a Class 111 permit. all this might pale at the cost to fire it. I was going to snap it up in case Canada threatens to invade but then thought I should let the members here have a shot at it. Otto, it might be just the thing in Chicago !!

    I am a Canadianphile, if not a word it should be. Beautiful country with fantastic people, courteous to a high degree on all my previous visits. The last people to invade us, why on earth would they want to.???? A lost joke !! I keep hoping they will not build a wall on their Southern border and send us the bill ! At least before I can find a wee cottage a bit west of Victoria..

    In the most nightmarish case if they do invade with AFV's I will dust off my old PIAT, thank you EBay , and if they approach with in 3 meters I will try to get a hit but that is the least of my fears. . Nantucket may secede and blockade our Eastern ports cutting off our supply of Audi's, BMW's and Mercedes and less I forget Bentley and Rolls , ops I forgot, they are already German :). That would cause a US economic crisis.

    Given our current administration war with Canada is not so far fetched. Let's see, we have strong ties or at least trying to have strong ties with North Korea and Russia the Canadians (maybe) with the UK, the EU, Mexico, China, Japan, Washington State, Oregon, The NE of the US . Yep, will take more than a MG 42 !!!

    Not many people know that the Australian constitution actually allows for the annexation of New Zealand! I wonder how many kiwis are aware of that...?
