WILD PIG CONTROL WITH EXPLOSIVES

Hogs

Ask most any rural land-owner here in Texas; and they will tell you about the destruction and damage wrecked by feral hogs, and the threat they pose to Texas' native environment. According to the USDA, traditional hunting techniques are not sufficient to halt the spread of this invasive species, which cost approximately $1.5 billion in damages each year.

To help counteract this scourge, we offer landowners unique tools to deal with hog infestations. In addition to firearms, Texas law permits the use of explosives and explosive Destructive Devices such as Claymore-style devices, to eliminate wild pigs. With our wide variety of suppressed fully automatic firearms, explosives, and explosive devices; no other company is able to offer the landowner such a wide variety of options to decisively stop the destruction of their property.

Our minimum fee within a 50 mile driving distance based on Google Maps, from our shop is $599. Additional miles traveled beyond the first 50 are $1.07 per mile (GSA rate both ways). If the distance is over 150 miles, or is a multi-day event; an additional per-day fee based on the GSA per diem for the area will be charged. If accommodations and/or food is provided, the per diem will be reduced by half. A $499 minimum of explosives and/or ammunition will be allotted and billed for each additional day on site.

If firearms are included, up to 3 suppressed or unsuppressed machine-guns equipped with NVG-compatible infrared lasers, 3 sets of night-vision, and a thermal scope scope for spotting can be added to the package with an addition charge of $199. Magazines can be purchased at $25 per 25rd magazine and 100rd belts of ammunition for an M249 SAW for $125; with discounts for purchasing 10 or more receiving a 10% discount, and 20 or more receiving a 20% discount. 

At the moment we are only providing the equipment, not the property or any vehicles. The wild hog eradication services can also be included into one of our private events, or blasting services for no additional charge.

Rates for explosives are:

Command Detonated Explosive $50/ea
Pound of Explosives (under 50lbs total) $25/ea
Pound of Explosives (50-100lbs total) $23.50/ea
Pound of Explosives (over 100lbs total) $20/ea
2lbs Command Detonated, Claymore Type Device $175/ea

All explosives will require appropriate land to utilize, and must afford stand-off distances for the device. All county and local regulations related to blasting must be observed.

Due to DOT Hazmat requirements on explosive, we use binary, liquid explosives, combined with detonation cord which detonate at approximately 21,000 fps. C4 detonates at approximately 26,500 fps, Dynamite at approximately 24,000 fops, and TNT at 26,000fps. If you would like to use other explosives, they are an option; but the cost is significantly higher, and the transportation fees are very expensive. 

We reserve the right to refuse, or cancel an event for any reason, at anytime.

NFA LAW EXPLAINED

nfastamp

To a budding National Firearms Act (NFA) enthusiast, understanding the basics of the NFA can be quite a daunting task.

According to the BATFE:
"The NFA was originally enacted in 1934. Similar to the current NFA, the original Act imposed a tax on the making and transfer of firearms defined by the Act, as well as a special (occupational) tax on persons and entities engaged in the business of importing, manufacturing, and dealing in NFA firearms. The law also required the registration of all NFA firearms with the Secretary of the Treasury. Firearms subject to the 1934 Act included shotguns and rifles having barrels less than 18 inches in length, certain firearms described as “any other weapons,” machineguns, and firearm mufflers and silencers."

 

5 Categories of NFA Items:

Short-Barrel Shotgun (SBS)
(1) a shotgun having a smoothbore barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length;
(2) a weapon made from a shotgun if such weapon as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length

Short-Barrel Rifle (SBR)
(1) a rifle having a rifled barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length;
(2) a weapon made from a rifle if such weapon as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length

Machine-Gun (MG)
(1)Any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger
(2) The frame or receiver of any such weapon
(3)Any part designed and intended solely and exclusively or combination of parts designed and intended for use in converting a weapon into a machine gun, or
(4) Any combination of parts from which a machine gun can be assembled if such parts are in the possession or under the control of a person.

Silencer (Suppressor)
(1) The terms "firearm silencer" and "firearm muffler" mean any device for silencing, muffling, or diminishing the report of a portable firearm, including any combination of parts, designed or redesigned, and intended for use in assembling or fabricating a firearm silencer or firearm muffler, and any part intended only for use in such assembly or fabrication.

Any Other Weapon (AOW)
(1) Any weapon or device capable of being concealed on the person from which a shot can be discharged through the energy of an explosive;
(2) A pistol or revolver having a barrel with a smooth bore designed or redesigned to fire a fixed shotgun shell;
(3) Weapons with combination shotgun and rifle barrels 12 inches or more, less than 18 inches in length, from which only a single discharge can be made from either barrel without manual reloading; and
(4)Any such weapon which may be readily restored to fire. Such term shall not include a pistol or a revolver having a rifled bore, or rifled bores, or weapons designed, made, or intended to be fired from the shoulder and not capable of firing fixed ammunition

Destructive Device (DD)
(1) any explosive, incendiary, or poison gas, (A) bomb, (B) grenade, (C) rocket having a propellant charge of more than 4 ounces, (D) missile having an explosive charge of more than 1/4 ounce, (E) mine or (F) similar device.
(2) Any weapon by whatever name known which will, or which may be readily converted to, expel a projectile by the action of an explosive or other propellant, the barrel or barrels of which have a bore of more than one-half inch in diameter (.50 inches or 12.7 mm), except a shotgun or shotgun shell which the Secretary finds is generally recognized as particularly suitable for sporting purposes; and
(3) Any combination of parts either designed or intended for use in converting any device into a destructive device as defined in subparagraphs (1) and (2) and from which a destructive device may be readily assembled.

 

ATF Forms for NFA: There's a variety of ATF Forms that are for various different types of NFA Actions.

Form 1: Form 1 is an application to make and register a firearm, by a non-SOT. This requires payment of a $200 registration tax. Form 1s can be done for any NFA item, except a machine-gun.
Form 2: Type 07 and Type 10 FFLs, and 02 SOT NFA Manufacturers to register a newly created NFA item tax free.
Form 3: Tax-Free SOT-to-SOT transfers.
Form 4: Transfers of NFA items to, or between non-SOTs, requiring payment of $200 tax.

Federal Firearms License (FFL) Types

Type 1: Dealer or Gunsmith
Type 2: Pawnbroker
Type 3: Collector of Curio & Relic (C&R) firearms
Type 6: Manufacturer of Ammunition
Type 7: Manufacturer of Firearms Other Than Destructive Devices
Type 8: Importer of Firearms Other Than Destructive Devices (TXMGO has this FFL)
Type 9: Dealer in Destructive Devices
Type 10 Manufacturer of Destructive Devices (TXMGO has this FFL)
Type 11 Importer of Destructive Devices

 

Special Occupational Taxpayer (SOT) Types: An SOT is an FFL who has paid a yearly tax of $1000 or $500, depending on gross sales; to be allowed to deal in NFA items. The tax is due 1 July or every year. There are 3 Classes of SOTs:

Class 01
: Importer of NFA Firearms (TXMGO has this SOT)
Class 02: Manufacturer of NFA Firearms (TXMGO has this SOT)
Class 03: Dealer of NFA Firearms

* Class 01 and 02 SOTs, can also deal in NFA firearms

 

NFA Myths:

Machines guns and suppressors are illegal
While your state of residence may not allow the possession of such weapons, they are not unlawful under federal law. NFA 1934 makes the transfer of such weapons taxable, and created a registry of such weapons.
No machine guns made after May 1986 can be entered in the registry creating a de facto ban on the production of new machine guns for civilians. This de facto ban does not apply to other NFA items.

I need a "Class 3 License" to buy an NFA item
Contrary to what you may read on the internet, there is no such thing as a "Class 3 License". What you need to do is pay a tax on the transfer of each item in your possession. The tax is currently $200 for machine guns, suppressors, short-barreled rifles/shotguns, and destructive devices. The transfer tax for Any Other Weapon is $5.

The "Class 3 License" misnomer, typically stems from a Type 01 FFL (Dealer in Firearms) who has paid to become a Class 3, Special Occupation Taxpayer (SOT) to allow them to deal in NFA items (NFA).

I have to pay the NFA tax every year
The $200 or $5 NFA Tax is a one-time tax, no matter how long you own the NFA item. The yearly fee is the Special Occupational Taxpayer (SOT) tax of $500 or $1000.

Owning an NFA surrendering your 4th amendment protections
The mere ownership of an NFA item does not give the ATF carte blanche to come search your house at any time day-or-night. This myth stems from the ATF's "right-of-entry" that is required for FFLs. In fact the only person you are legally required to show your NFA registration paperwork to is an "ATF officer on request". Technically you do not have to show local, state, or non-ATF law enforcement your NFA registration paperwork; yet your milage may vary on how succesful that works out for you.

If I buy an NFA item I’ll have to buy a safe to store it in
While you are required to maintain control of your NFA items at all times (and a safe to which only you have access goes a long way to meeting this requirement), there is no law that requires you to buy a safe to store your NFA items.

No one else is allowed to use my NFA weapons
As long as you are maintaining control (which means you don’t leave the NFA items in the sole care of someone other than yourself) your friends and family are welcome to use them, as long as you are physically present.

All sales must go through a dealer
Intrastate sales can be completed on a Form 4 without involving a dealer. Interstate sales require an FFL to FFL transfer on a Form 3.

Configuration of the NFA item may not be changed
You may freely change the configuration of your NFA item without specific permission from the ATF. You can use one SBR lower receiver, and have as many NFA or non-NFA uppers as your wish. The only time you are required to notify ATF is of a "permanent" change, which is not really defined

 

THIS IS INTENDED TO BE INFORMATIONAL ONLY AND IN NO WAY CONSIDERED LEGAL ADVICE

BLASTING SERVICES

 

With our staff of experienced and military-trained blasters, led by a former US Navy Explosives Ordnance Disposal technician, TXMGO offers light blasting services for various customers. This can be blasting trees or tree stumps for agricultural purposes, blasting rocks that are otherwise unable to be removed, or a nuisance beaver dam. Or we you can bring us out just for the fun of blowing things up. We do not offer any technical blasting, such as demolishing buildings in confined areas.

There are many safety, technical and legal variables when it comes to being able to utilize explosives for a specific situation and location, so there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Though explosives are a valuable tool, and are not inherently dangerous; they must at all times be treated with respect, caution, and an obsessive focus on safety. These factors often limit the situations where explosives are an appropriate solution.

The minimum charge for explosives within a 50 mile driving distance from our shop is $650. Additional miles traveled beyond 50, are $1.07 per mile (GSA rate for both ways). If the distance is over 150 miles, or is a multi-day event; an additional per-day fee based on the GSA per diem for the area will be charged. If accommodation and/or food is provided, the per diem will be reduced by half. A $450 minimum of explosives will be allotted and billed for each additional day on-site.

Our Pricing Structure is as follows:

Fuse Detonator  $30/ea
Command Detonator  $50/ea
Det-Cord under 500ft Total $2.00/ft
Det-Cord over 500t Total $1.75/ft
Pound of High-Explosives (under 50lbs total) $25/ea
Pound of High-Explosives (50lbs-100lbs total $23.50/ea
Additional Pounds of Explosives (over 100lbs total) $20/ea

Due to DOT Hazmat requirements on explosive materials, we use binary, liquid explosives, combined with detonation cord which detonate at approximately 21,000 fps. C4 detonates at approximately 26,500 fps, Dynamite at approximately 24,000 fps, and TNT at 26,000 fps. If you would like to use other explosives such as C4 or dynamite, they are an option; but the cost is significantly higher, and the transportation fees are very expensive.

If you are interested in hiring TXMGO do your blasting, please contact us with the details of your needs; and we will evaluate how we can possibly assist you.

** General planning rate. Various additional fees or rates may apply for certain firearms; and firearms with acessories, such as optics.

*** All firearms imported from abroad are subject to an excise tax of 10% on handguns and 11% on long-guns. As TXMGO is only acting as the importer, not the seller or purchaser; the person receiving the guns in the U.S. is liable for payment of the excise tax. We require a signed statement from the person receiving the firearm, that they are aware that they are personally liable for the excise tax, and are required to pay that amount directly to ATF. However for an additional fee, TXMGO will pay the excise tax on the customer's behalf.

**** Various fees are assesseted by CBP for importing items into the US, these include the Merchandise Processing Fee (MPF), of 0.3464%, with a minimum of $25 and a maximum of $485; if mailed or brought in by air. If brought in by sea,  a Harbor Maintenance Fee (HMF) of .125 percent is collected. Additionally many airlines, and ports assess a processing fee, storage fee, or other charge. Any extra storage fees incurred due to TXMGO's oversight or mistake, will not be charged to the customer. However any storage fees arising from circumstances beyond our control, such as Customs not releasing an item, will be billed to the customer.
