It is looking like I'll be a couple of miles from the Pink Liquor Store in October...

I need to hire bodies in the auto parts store.
 
You don't need to be a mechanic. I wasn't.
 
You don't need to know a whole helluva lot about cars. I still don't.
 
You do need at least minimal customer service skills, and the ability to speak a complete sentence to a customer without using the word <bleep>.
 
We're so hosed. No online apps are coming in, and when Junior's parents find out that he'll start at minimum wage, like everyone else, they go into corner office mode. Or the retired people figure that it isn't worth the hassle.

Sounds like a plan.

Panel is CH (Cutler-Hammer, now Eaton). 200 amp with a vertical-throw master breaker. Breakers will be reconfigured so that the genset feed is the 1/3 slots (top left). Has to be that way for interlock function. Feed box will be a proper box with male receptacle. GE and Westinghouse both have 30 amp UL-listed inlet boxes. There are a bunch of cheapo ETL-listed boxes, but no. I want UL and a name I at least recognize. We have an exterior closet that's ostensibly for yard tools but will also make a handy protected area to mount the inlet box out of the weather and away from most critters. It's also less than ten feet from the main panel with nice, open attic space above for install access. Guesstimating $200-$225 in parts plus install. Electrician will be by next week to quote the project addition.

Any externally visible housing or holding structure for a fire control part? Wear a case of triggers on your belt, congrats, you are now that state registered deadly weapon the braggy guy in boot camp claimed he was.

I wonder if they'll try to shoehorn stuff like PSA rifle kits (sans the stripped lower) into this? "Readily make" could certainly be defined in many ways.
The upper alone would be a receiver under these rules.

Where are you? I grew up in Harrodsburg.

7 miles from the front gate of Fort Knox.

To help keep guns from being sold to convicted felons and other prohibited purchasers, the rule would make clear that retailers must run background checks before selling kits that contain the parts necessary for someone to readily make a gun at home.

Under the proposed rule, a “frame or receiver” is any externally visible housing or holding structure for one or more fire control components. A “fire control component” is one necessary for the firearm to initiate, complete, or continue the firing sequence, including, but not limited to, any of the following: hammer, bolt, bolt carrier, breechblock, cylinder, trigger mechanism, firing pin, striker, or slide rails.

Any firearm part falling within the new definition that is identified with a serial number must be presumed, absent an official determination by ATF or other reliable evidence to the contrary, to be a frame or receiver.
Yet another ATF rule that literally ignores the law.
Sounds like uppers might be in the crosshairs.
