Thanks to all involved in this. I look forward to bring reunited with my lowers. I have a nice place in my gun safe reserved for them.

Hi Gene, I heard you were there yesterday for a couple of hours. Too bad I missed you by a day, I'd really like to meet you and thank you in person. Ben, I've already met you a couple of times

Rob was as nice as ever and I can't wait to head down again to bring my long lost lower home

THE MILPITAS LOWERS
I guess then this was not just a story the old ones talked about around the camp fire after all while telling Bigfoot and UFO and man with a gun on the grassy knoll stories.

This is not just internet lore that I invited myth-busters to investigate (but never heard back from)

The milpitas lowers live!

Do we have any photographic evidence though?

Has there been a congressional committee, say like the warren committee or the Mitchel investigation, to prove or disprove the existence of these lowers?


SO if this is a real story I have to ask.

Does anyone have the book rights yet?

Have they hired a good writer?

Anyone contact Spielberg or Lucas?

I eagerly await the million dollar block buster movie on this story!

MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Wow! While I'm a bit behind the curve (checking out the rifleman's forum too often) congradulations to all those patient folks!

I bought my first OLL during the second or third(?) group buy, sweating bullets in fear of another siezure. Just for grins I dug up my invoice and instruction (Subj: Your Film & Light Order at BenjaminCannon.net ) emails dated 1/28/2006.

Congradulations again! Strong work there Mr. Cannon!

Oh yeah....Have a Safe and Happy New Year!
Jeff

It's appropriate to wear jackboots when visiting the home of the JBTs.

Hey,

If there are any unclaimed lowers then they are mine.

Just tell me the name to who you sold them too and I'll bring my library card showing you that is me!

Boy, I've been out of the loop! 6 lowers, baby... 6 lowers.

I never really gave up, Ben, because you stayed so positive the whole time.

Thanks again!

I guess those with serial numbers listed on page 6 of the Sept. 10th correspondence to BC from the DOJ will be forever etched in infamy.

Thanks to the combined efforts of members of calguns.net, a web forum promoting individual rights, unlawfully taken personal property has been returned to it's rightful and legal owners.

Participants must undergo yet another 10-day waiting period, as these harmless looking chunks of aluminum are still technically 'firearms'.

This is yet another example of what good people can do when we come together openly and honestly. I thank you all for your continued support, and look forward to what 2008 will bring.

All Milpitas Group Buyers are cordially invited to a release party early Jan 2008, date and venue info will be distributed.

Thank you to the following, without your help:
Scatch Maroo
Rob Blank, RMB
Gene Hoffman
Jason Davis, TMLLP
Chuck Michel, TMLLP
NRA
Calguns.net
Paul Kestryll
Ramon
blackrazor
Bill Wiese
Matt Corwin
All the rest who must remain nameless.

EDIT to add:
One small step for Off List Lowers, one giant leap for mankind.

RMB Enterprises. 1000 Jacklin Road. Milpitas, CA 95035.
Phone: (408) 946-5289. Fax: (408) 946-5378.
I bought a lower "SPECIFICALLY" for my first AR "style" build... It was one of the seized lowers I believe from this deal.

...My buddy had two in there 10 day jail period and then they got taken. So he bought 2 more and when they were finally released I had to have one of the seized ones.

These lowers changed they way we do stuff in California.

Thanks Ben for ALL your and the CGF's hard work!!
