    Morning all. came to a conclusion that further "thinning of the Herd" had to happen. I am offering for sale a Mint Dan Wesson "Bruin" 10MM. This is one of my coolest Pistolas I own but I am finding I have less and less time to shoot. I have not even put 100 rounds through it yet and the Holster has never been opened (I'll include!) I can use the cash for wonderful adventures, like 15 year old house maintenance. I will post pics tonight when I return from work. I am asking $1500.00 . No trades.These are $18-1900.00 at this time. Holler if you have any questions. Yes I have the box and all the goodies!(2 mags, lock,holster-(Uncle Mikes) pics- https://imgur.com/a/rkLfTOy https://imgur.com/a/I6tBh9R REDUCED TO $1425.00

    The very first brand new rifle I bought when I turned 18 in 1977 was a M1A. SN 006022. It was a nice rifle but accuracy was out the window once the barrel got warm. Nation Matching the bedding points is some what of a fix but not an easy job and takes on wear with cleaning take downs. I sold it when Springfield started selling SAR48's and that rifle is the nut. After tuning it up to my liking, I at one time fired 10 rounds in 5/8ths" group @ 100yds. Hand weighed & prepped cases with W748 behind Sierra 168g BTHP Match kings. Typically the AR's will out shoot a FAL but the history, parts and field reliability loom large in the FAL's corner. The HK is a decent rifle but they are far more rough on the brass with their fluted chamber walls and the sheet metal stamping of a receiver is a huge negative compared to the sleek FAL's milled bolt guides. AK 308's are built AK reliable but what you inadvertently get with that is an over gassed weapon with a high piston over barrel bore that inherently creates way more barrel whip that the close to bore piston of the FAL. Speaking as a trained Gunsmith, a properly built FAL is the best bang for the buck in SHTF hardware. In that scenario, adjustable gas launches it past the more accurate AR guns. The M1A is simply out dated with its multi point bedding system compared to FAL barrel harmonic geometry. I like the M1A but I love the FAL design. So much so.... I hang FAL lowers on more than just their uppers! Best buy right here...DSA w/ life time warranty

    Remember that there is a difference between those at the top of the leftist movement and the masses of "useful idiots" at the bottom. Always has been...Lenin and Stalin were not uneducated or dumb or "victims of their feelings". George Soros (and the others pushing for a 21st century worldwide leftist "Aristocracy") is not "dumb" , he's a cold calculating snake who makes great use of those ill educated emotionally driven "useful idiots" who can't see that all the causes they are pushing for (no private ownership of guns , no personally owned vehicles, no commercial air travel , no cows, universal health care, etc) will end up being the means of controlling and enslaving them. Leftist domination of the world as a goal did not simply end with the collapse of the Soviet Union. The "communism " part is just a tool to advance an end. It did not just go away. Those ultra rich "citizen of the world aristocrats" who still want a one world government to rule over the masses are just as dangerous to individual freedom and liberty * as Stalin , Khrushchev or Lenin ever was. And the disturbing part is all the "useful idiots" in the US who would piss away all the freedom that is their birthright, that was paid for with the blood of their forefathers in order to be perpetually "safe from getting their feelings hurt " when no one can EVER truly guarantee safety of any kind. * Liberty....Funny that the leftists that now call themselves LIBERALS never use the word LIBERTY. They do not want liberality or liberty...they want control of others and to limit thought and discourse if it deviates from their beliefs. Look up the definition of liberal sometime and see how little it describes the modern American left....

    "The Shellbark Hickory Tree is similar to the Shagbark hickory tree in its bark, though it is not as shaggy. This hickory features larger sized nuts than other types, and can generally be found in wet, fertile bottomland areas. Shellbark is a less common variety compared to such varieties as the Shagbark and Bitternut, however it is no less worthy to be planted, and it's wood is used in many of the same ways"

    I've got this theory that the Israelis are pretty damned good at building functional, practical, effective weapons because they know they'll put them to use on a regular basis.

    This is what I found this morning, I figured this would happen. I have a large Pecan tree in my backyard. The groundhog I was trying to catch was sitting off to the side eating nuts and watching the show.

    Yeah, I think I've realized it's all sorta just unpredictable. The receipt from AGN shows $54 for the cost of the glass to me. The rest is basically installation. I did check on the internet for the Toyota branded OEM, $500+ easily, never found it for less. I have no fancy features...it is just glass. No rain sensors, tinting, etc. I...hoped. I put some Windex on it today and although it did make it cleaner, I think it's certain the defect is in the glass. I spoke with them today and she said to bring it it...their tech will look at it. I'll do that the next time I'm that direction. My thoughts are that they'll downplay it and essentially say the only reason I'm seeing it is because I'm looking for it. I will say I never noticed it on the original glass and it is easily noticeable under certain circumstances now. Of note, I did notice yesterday that when the sun was a a certain angle, you could literally see lines on the dashboard from where the light was being scattered. I'm almost just there. I'll let them look at it as stated above, but I'm not about to spend more money to try again. If they'll try another windshield or offer me some sort of refund...I'll probably just live with it. The difference between <$200.00 and >$700.00 makes quite the compelling case to not worry too much about it.

    I buy American made when I can; in guns you always can. That may not make a difference to you. The only American made you have in that group is the M&P. I have several of those in various models and calibers. I just bought the new M&P M2.0 Compact 4” in 40S&W. It’s a little smaller than the full size, a little bigger than my 40C, but will use it’s own 13 round mags or the 15 round mags from my full size. I got it from Buds for $334 plus a transfer. They still have it on sale. It makes a great home defense/Car gun, range gun, or carry gun if you are okay with carrying something that big. It’s the most versatile of all the M&P models. For a more concealable carry gun I have an M&P Shield. Not much of a range gun; but that’s not what it was designed for.

    Dave, I am by no means an English scholar. I read it as the first part stating why the second amendment is necessary. The second part, which stands on it’s on, declares the right to keep and bear arms an unrestricted right of “THE PEOPLE”. I am among “THE PEOPLE”. I think you are as well.

    While searching through the many suggestions here, Amazon popped this poster storage tube up. At $20 it was just what I was looking for. It just got here and is great! I'll probably fill a small camera bag with extra ammo and attach it to the shoulder strap. All I need now is a Bernie Sanders sticker to remove any doubt that there is anything of value inside. Now you see it Now you don't

    I’m pretty sure the validity of the lifetime HCP is dependent upon residency in the state of TN. If you become a resident of another state, then your permit is no longer valid.

    I guess, I'm the old Geezer here. I carry a SAK and a big ole Grand Daddy Barlow. And if I’m not carrying the Barlow, It's a large Case Sodbuster. I got tactical folders, but don't every carry them. I like the look and feel of an old slip joint.

    Well Greg that makes 2 of us. Sort of like cell phones, if it wasn't for my wife I wouldn't have one. Where we live it doesn't work much of the time. Yea I have heard of other you kids killing big deer and elk, kind of beginners luck I guess.

    Winchester's Teddy Roosevelt Commemorative 30-30 Rifle and Carbine. These did not sell as a set, at least not to my knowledge, but I am selling them this way because they have consecutive serial numbers. The rifle features a 26" octagon barrel and the carbine a 20" octagon barrel. I do NOT have boxes, papers, etc for either gun I personally believe they've never been fired but since I am not the original owner I will only say they've seen very VERY little use. $1600 Not really looking for trades FTF in east tn but other arrangements can be made

    Magpul M-Lok Bipod. I installed this and had it out one time, I’ve since removed it and went another direction. I did like it, for what it’s worth, I’m just not a bipod guy. $85 shipped to you. SB Tactical SBA4 Brave. I’ve used this for a short time (16 days) while waiting for my form 1 approval, its just as it came new. I’m selling this without the buffer tube that it came with because frankly, it’s garbage. The anodizing is purple, and the threads weren’t cut cleanly either. The lowest end carbine buffer tube on the market would serve you better. $65 shipped to you I prefer PayPal friends and family as payment

    Thanks to all. I think I'll go out this afternoon and look at several units. Not sure exactly what I'll do, but the desktop is definitely leading. So I'll be pretty much comfy with it. DaveTn, thanks for the advice. I like the looks and specks of that linked Lenovo. Very good price. Don't like the wired keyboard, but can live with it. I'm assuming Optical refers to wireless mouse, so it might be leading at the moment. Now, my thanks for all the advice and comments. Hughd, btq96r, jGrady, 10_Ring, deadeye111, peejayman, No_one, Trekbike, and Jamie Jackson, I appreciate your coming to my aid. I won't say I understood it all, lol, but I gathered some info that will get me to where I want/need to be. Thanks.

    What Dave said. We use Lenovo machines at work and while fairly rudimentary, they seem to survive the shop floor abuse reasonably well. Higher end machines are Dells. I'm also in the market for a new PC, which will largely be an internet terminal. We don't do anything at home that requires significant horsepower. Our MIS person told me to sign up for the Dell email notifications. Get a decent machine, max out the RAM and it should run fine for years to come. I've seen decent desktop CPU's for $400-$500. I've already got all the peripherals, all I need is the box.

    My wife used to work with a raptor rehab group. Most of the birds suffering from lead poisoning had been shot, so they were injured and on the ground where people could see them and get them. A bird that injests lead in something it ate is likely to just drop dead at some point so there's not a good way to count them. I'm sure this one got attention because it was an eagle. Black Vultures and Turkey Vultures are plentiful here so they're not going to get much attention. The California Condor is one of the more well known examples. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_condor

    Just for remembering the Good ole days. LOL I recall in about 1963 going to the western auto store and buying .22 shorts for $0.39, I was 11 at the time and nobody asked what the heck an 11 year old boy was doing buying dangerous ammunition!! I also carried a knife to school probably from about 3rd grade until today.

    Perhaps I didn’t make myself clear. I’m on your team my friend. I was simply mocking folks who claim the constitution says things it clearly does not say. They pulled the tired old quote “separation of church and state” from a letter penned by Thomas Jefferson if I remember correctly. Nowhere in the constitution or the amendments will you find it. I know because I looked more than once.

    I personally loved Federal 125 gr Nyclad HPs, and still carry them in my S&W 442 along with 2 additional speed strips full. I thought this was the best standard pressure defense round going for snubbies. Sadly, Federal dropped them. I snap them up, whenever I can find the odd box, here or there. Now, I’d probably go with the HST round mentioned above or the Speer Gold Dot.

    That is a beautiful set you have there! My dad gave me the rifle version several years ago. I think he shot it once or twice. GLWS!
