    Yea, he was the one everyone else in the family gave up on and said he would never amount to anything except his Grandpaw. He developed ADHA at age 3 and became a holy terror and was out of control a lot. The doctors finally put him on Ritlin and at age 5 he was almost zombie like. He had a doctors appointment and I told my daughter I was going with her. She had her say and the doctor said there was no other treatment and I got my time with the doctor and I asked him if he ever actually spent time talking to him or was it easier to just shove pills at him. That kind of caught the doctor off guard. Someone was challenging him decision. At first he wanted to argue but he thought better or it. He instead took Matt into his office while I sat there and actually talked with Matt and found out Matt could carry on a conversation for a 5 year old. The doctor wrote a different prescription. With in about 2 weeks we could see a difference in him. He didn't get mad at everything he was told to do such as pick up his toys and when he did I told my daughter to whip his butt but just enough to get his attention and tell him he is going to listen to you when you talk to him. I also told her not to every yell at him. He is my step daughter's son but I claim all them as my kids. Any way Matt was able to go to school and maintain a normal grade level. He had a little sister and a little brother. Because of his ADHD he is considered handicap but they have advanced so much with it since he was young all he needs now is 1 shot a month and he lives a normal life. He got s scholarship and went to a Technical College and now works in Computer Technology. So yea, it was tough going when he was first diagnosed with it but by my never giving up on him the rest of the family was not allow to and it turned out alright.

    I have the utmost respect for Lowes even though they may not be able to enforce it and they are not being forced by any courts to do this they have stepped up to the plate once again for our Military Veterans. I am disabled and have a license plate that states it on my Jeep but there is times that I opt out of taking a space in case a person in worse shape than I might need the space. I did get upset one day up at Krogers as I was looking for a parking space and I passed up a handicap space because not to far behind me was a little older lady with a plaque so I opted to let he have it and before she could get in it a guy coming up from the other way pulled into the space and had to back up twice to get straight in it. I had parked and he was just getting out of his vehicle and I watched him get his plaque out of his console and just pitch it up on the dash board and not even hang it on the mirror. I entioned to him that it does not count unless it is on your mirror and his reply was what ever and he walked away. I walked to the front of his vehicle to get a look at the Plaque and sure enough it was expired by 2 years. Well being the law abiding person I am I proceeded to dial the non emergency police phone number and requested if they could send a patrol car to the Kroger parking lot and just my luck there was one pulling in off hwy31 and he got the call and I waved him down. I explained exactly what happened and his attitude. The officer ask me to step back away into the lot a little and I did. He walked up and read the plaque information and went back and sat in his car and ran the tags and plaque information. He than sat and waited for the vehicle owner to arrive and a second squad car showed up and parked near the first one. The guy comes out and just about the time he reaches his vehicle he pushes the alarm and unlock switch. I hope he didn't buy Ice cream while in the store. You ready for this. They arrested this guy. He had 9 outstanding warrants for traffic tickets, the plaque he was using was reported stolen 2.5 years earlier and the officers found 3 more plaques in his console. All had been reported stolen, the latest one only 1.5 month earlier. He never saw me but I have a pretty good guess he knows how he got caught. He was not even from around Gallatin. He lived in Waverly Tennessee but they had his vehicle towed. Yea, I know, I'm a trouble maker but he should not have cut that little lady off and took the space and had an attitude. This happened about 3 years ago or better but I was reminded of it from this thread. The officer thanked me for being an upstanding person and reporting the violation. He also said that he wished the would find another way to provide handicap parking permits. He said a sticker that could be displayed on the rear window was being discussed but evidently it didn't go anywhere.

    Ok, TTAG wrote up an article covering this case and included some very vital information that was left out of the Prince Law article. https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2018/11/daniel-zimmerman/atf-suffers-rare-court-loss-in-ohio-short-barrel-rifle-prosecution/ Here are some key points: Toledo police responded to a domestic disturbance call in March at the home of Kelland and Christina Wright. Mr. Wright, a Marine veteran, allegedly threw a cell phone at his wife and was arrested. As a part of an arrest for a domestic violence complaint, police confiscated all firearms in the home, including an AR pistol equipped with the Maxim cheek rest. When the gun was subsequently examined by the ATF, they deemed it an unregistered short barrel rifle (SBR). That determination was based on the fact that, according to the ATF’s measurements, the Maxim cheek rest — which had been altered with the addition of a rubber “cane tip” on the end — resulted in a length of pull that’s greater than the 13.5-inch limit the ATF says is the maximum for any similar AR pistol accessory. Wright had apparently added the cane tip to keep the gun upright when stored in his safe. Prosecutors argued that was an illegal alteration to the gun. As a result, Wright was charged with possession of an unregistered short barrel rifle, a felony. There were a couple of problems with the caseagainst Wright, however. First, the ATF has never issued an official public opinion letter stating that AR pistols with such accessories— cheek rests, pistol braces, etc. — must have a length of pull of no more than 13.5 inches to avoid being considered an SBR. The ATF had communicated that fact to various manufacturers in private opinion letters concerning their specific products over the years (and some of those companies have chosen to make those letters public), but nothing has ever been communicated to the general gun-buying public by the agency. As a result, the defense argued that Wright had no reasonable way of knowing about the 13.5-inch length of pull limit. There’s a Supreme Court precedent in Staples v. United States that found a gun owner has to knowthat his firearm has characteristics that bring it under NFA regulation to be guilty of a crime. Regarding the ATF asking to seal documents: The Prince post also mentioned that the ATF asked for and was granted an order sealing a number of documents used in the case. As a part of their defense, Wright’s attorneys used a selection of those opinion letters the ATF had issued to manufacturers in connection with specific products under consideration. The ATF argued against releasing those for use by the defense in the trial, but lost that fight. The ATF then, reasonably enough, sought to have those letters sealed and not included in the public record of the trial because they contained potentially sensitive competitive information concerning the companies involved…not because they were trying to hide any internal ATF decision-making from the public. Those documents were never intended for public disclosure unless the companies themselves decided to release them. And for the final coup de grace, the defendant was represented by a public defender. So he didn’t owe a dime for his defense. I just want to repeat, the ATF had their asses handed to them by a PD.

    I haven’t forgotten, Last week I passed up Dicks, which is 2 minutes from my house, and drove 20 minutes to Academy in Knoxville to spend $250 on shoes and another $150 for camping supplies. I hope they continue to feel the pain of their decision.

    Just wanted to throw out a big huge CONGRATULATIONS to 5 guys who have been students of mine in the past who achieved either Dark or Light Performance Pins this past weekend at Gabe White's Pistol Shooting Solutions class in Waverly TN. These guys all post here too from time to time so I also look at it an achievement for the whole TGO community. While I can't take all the credit for their performances , I hopefully at least inspired them if nothing else to work hard to improve their skills and struggle for perfection. So congrats to Miller_Man, Chances R , Aqil, Taylor, and Byrl (not sure as to his handle on TGO) You guys ROCK and make me proud. Keep up the good work. For those not familiar....http://www.gabewhitetraining.com/performance-awards/

    When a little more discretion is called for, I reach for one of my .380s. I happen to like them and feel that they are adequate for self defense. I don't have any experience with either of those, but if you like 'em, keep 'em. I also a big believer in never selling a gun you don't have to.

    The old Gallatin Gun Club is now the Middle Tennessee Sporting Association. We have a new location that we own and invite you to join as member of the range. We will have a 30+ bench rifle shed for 100-400 yard ranges, 2 trap stations and starting with 5 pistol bays. All the ranges are separated from each other with no overlap. Rifle ranges are on schedule to be completed by December 2018 with completion of the pistol bays and trap ranges by spring of 2019. IDPA, USPSA, 3-gun, ATA, high power, small bore and bench rest chair persons are planning events. These events will be slow starting at first because of ongoing construction. Stay tune for developments. We are planning on range improvements and adding new facilities in coming years as we grow. Oh yes, an Archery range is also in the works. Dues are a $200 one time application fee and $200 the first time then $200 per year after that. We have open spots, join with us as we grow. NRA membership is required alone with a clean record. ( It is a gun range after all) Contact Shawn Dorris at 615-452-5894 or shawndorris@comcast.net Mailing address is Middle Tennessee Sporting Association, PO Box 8846, Gallatin TN 37066 Range address is 319 Dry Branch RD, Dixon Springs TN 37057.

    A YouTube channel called SmarterEveryDay recently posted a video about Shockwave Shadows. He uses mirrors and high speed cameras to capture stuff that isn't visible to our naked eyes. His name is Destin. Destin started by filming a 50 cal round moving and then went down to 300blk supers and then subs. And the footage of the subs is really fascinating, especially when he goes to an expert. Then he filmed a revolver with the same technique. Check out all of that gas from the cylinder gap.

    Well I'm an old dog and I use cbd products. For me it enables me to get a full night's sleep for the first time in years. An no you don't get stoned on it. Trust me, if you did I would know. I enjoyed the 70's. But seriously, I take a 15 mg gummy at night and sleep better than I have in 25 years. They're legal in TN. https://hempbombs.com/product/hemp-bombs-60-count-cbd-gummies/

    I just had another thought. Why don't you take the handgun class with him? More quality time together and you can have protection when you're out alone.

    I know a guy that lost his license and 19. He paid what he could, and always settled his debts, but through the bureaucracy and steep costs was always unable to get his license back. Between hoops to jump though and paying his regular bills it seemed be never had the $1000, $2000, $3000, $4000 to pay the fines/reinstatement costs that continually accrued. Though he continued to drive to work, every time he would be caught for a minor infraction (a tail light, a headlight, failure to come to a complete stop) it would add thousands of dollars and another time constraint to what it took to reinstate his license. He became a family man, no legal issues, but one mistake, during a time where the state of Tennessee didn't have insurance requirements (determined at fault due to other party having insurance regardless of cause of accident) he lost his license. Total costs over the course of ten years involved multiple trips to jail and tens of thousands of dollars in court costs. And all of it cause by an ambiguous law that wasn't even broken. Failure to provide proof of financial responsibility was the official answer. A record as long as the tattoos on my arm, and only for driving offenses. This was resolved a long, long time ago. But it is something that I still have bitter feelings about. It was nothing more than a way to keep the poor as poor as possible in my opinion and experience. I applaud the law and hope that it is used in good faith and for the good of all.

    We were planing on leaving early this morning, but God had other plans. I met a guy last night, same age as me, wife same age as mine, 3 kids like me, a house... But my house still has the siding and shingles on it and isn’t surrounded by fallen trees. I put a extra saw in his hands and we went to work.
