I think the restrictor deal has far more negative votes than positive. If it goes into effect, we all have to run out and have restrictors built, with holes that have no dimensions.

Yes. You would have to have them made and be certain that they are smaller than the mandated size, so that there is no chance of a tech failure. Then, when they decide it isn't small enough, you...
