  1. I bought this at a gun show a few years back. It came with a set of stag grips. I finally located original style grips for it. This was no easy feat. In case anyone isn't familiar, this is a Smith and Wesson Heavy Frame Target Model, also referred to as a Bekeart Model. I'm not sure the year of manufacture, but it is roughly 100 years old, and chambered for 22 Long Rifle. I've always wanted one of these, but never thought i'd actually have one.

  2. A buddy from my Army days runs a gunsmithing shop in Central Texas and did his magic on my late Grandfather's ole Colt he use to slip in his pocket coon hunting. I think it turned out great.

  3. All actions taken by the government in the week before the inauguration, the quick pivot of the Biden / Harris administration from duplicitous cries for "unity" toward the narrative that the window of opportunity for the GOP to "work with us" was closing, and the continued presence of miles of barbed wire-topped fences and armed troops manning them in Washington DC has told me all I needed to know about where this was headed. Biden and Harris and the Democrats entrenched in places of power want us disarmed. Period. NOW. Conservatives are now all racist, White Supremacist, radical F

  4. First off let me say these are one off items. I don't see them being repeated anytime in the near future. The letter opener was made cause it was completely worn out and just hated to throw it away. The Tanto Kata- Aizu Shintogo pair were made cause I just wanted to see if I could. They are sooooo labor intensive and in no way I can rush through one. I can't tell you how many times I just said the heck with it and left it on my work bench and walked away. If you can't handle tedious then this isn't something you should consider making.

  5. We do our absolute best on TGO to put the best face forward, welcome all manner of diversity in our members, preach that the 2A is for everyone, bequeath the love of responsible firearms use and ownership to the next generation and motivate folks to do their individual yet massively impactful "small part" by voting for Pro-2A legislation and legislators. For years the number of us who are willing to do what @TripleGGG described and write and call and email and petition the lawmakers to preserve the Second Amendment has been an abysmally low percentage compared to the overall tally of peop

I recall being told by TGO prognosticators that we that believed he would immediately start pursuing gun control were in a bubble and he had more important matters, healer in chief, children back to school, whoop covids ass, and gun control issues wouldn't come until the mid terms. Sounds to me like he wants it NOW

It took them an additional month to mail the stamps. Hopefully the other four will be here soon. I’m a little giddy right now. SiCo Osprey9, Dead Air Mask .22 and Surefire Socom SPS 300

  12. The murderer fired the first several shots at the ground or in the air. And they still were hurling insults at him. The woman pulled out her phone and said she had it on camera. This had been a long ongoing feud but the fact that the folks just really could not grasp that he was for real and their lives were in danger boggles the mind. The couple did not deserve to die like that, but the story is coming out from the neighbors say that they were not innocent players in all of this. You never know who you’re dealing with and you never know when that psycho switch is going to

  13. We all know what's coming from Washington. Many Counties in TN have already passed 2A Sanctuary resolutions. However, I'd like to get a movement going to have the entire state of Tennessee declared a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary. I think that with a little nudging from the citizens that this could be done. It won't stop the feds, but it will send a message that we want no part of their BS. I sent e-mails to my State Senator and Representative today. I strongly urge everyone here to do so and encourage all your friends to join in too. The time to speak up is now.

  15. After about 20 hours of head scratching, welding, machining and alot of space drifting on just how this non conventional action functions, I finally got this in shooting condition. Its a GB "parts" gun i bought recently but some guy got my top dollar in the final tally of just over 3 bones. A bit much for a gun that was missing the ejector assembly and cylinder pin, cracked grips and with rough bore but it was one of those oldie challenges I'v never had in front of me before. The good part is the 38 Long Colt uses a 357 bullet and to my surprise, 38 spl brass chambered right up. So thats off t

  17. Hey y’all, keep the focus directly on the 2A. To that end, we all need to keep the pressure on all of our Congress critters and ensure they know that any action against the 2A will result in electoral consequences. Don’t threaten to vote for their opponent in the general. Even in TN most seats are safe due to gerrymandering. Threaten to find and support a primary challenger who supports the 2A. As an example, a Republican Rep will never beat Steve Cohen in Memphis, but a pro 2A democrat might strip him of his seat in the primary which is the real election for that seat.

  18. I picked up a 3d printer last year and I've enjoyed some of the projects that I've made. It's been useful for a lot of stuff. I made an AR15 bolt vice that has been one of my most used tools. I made a sight pusher for Glocks that I've used quite successfully. I've printed up a few extended mag releases for 10/22s. It's been useful and fun. I recently got the files to start trying to print some guns. My first attempt was a 10/22. It took four prints before I got the kinks worked out and made a receiver that would actually work. The first several were undersized or I ha

I don't want to hear anyone saying in 6 months or 6 years that nobody alerted them to this fact. You can also buy aluminum mags for $11.99. Simple if you snooze you lose.

  27. I can’t say I’ve ever been a big listener. But as the parent of three children, I can’t think of anyone who’s actually done more for the children of this state. My oldest is 14, and I think she was among the first group to be a part of the statewide Imagination Library - where if you’re not familiar any child in Tennessee can receive one book a month in the mail addressed to them at no cost until their fifth birthday. We’re an affluent family that read to our children every night - but man did my kids look forward to getting those books in the mail. They’ve of course outgrown m

  28. The proper approach to this question and others like it isn’t “what can I do?” It should always be “what must I do?” Whether in your home or elsewhere. So the question isn’t “can I shoot this person,” the question is “must I shoot this person to defend my life, or the lives of others from imminent harm.” If that’s your operating position, I think the odds of you actually being in a position to shoot anybody are pretty damn low, and facing legal trouble over the shoot well below that.

  29. Check out this wonderful Smith from 1980. This gorgeous 586 in 4” is nearly perfect. I can’t find any flaws. Great nickel, beautiful stocks, and single action trigger pull that is one of the 7 wonders of the world. This gun was produced from 1980-1999. This is from it’s first year. The nickel ones are more rare than the blue. This one is special. I’ll list it here 1st. Available to meet in Middle Tn or you can pick it up at my 2A friendly office in Brentwood.

  30. For sale is this little jewel of a Smith & Wesson. Born in 1971, she has the gorgeous factory nickel that just makes you smile. Great little addition to your Smith collection. A collectible investment that you can still shoot. Nickel is in great shape with no issues. Single action trigger pull rivals any gun I have. No slack or take up....just pure magic. These guns in this condition are rare and don’t come for sale often. Don’t let this one get away. These are rare. There are none on Gunbroker and none in closed auctions. Available to meet in Middle Tn or you can drop by my 2A frien

  33. Pretty neat. Jeff lived 25 minutes from me and was an awesome dude. he always made neat reviews and videos on guns. If they were crap guns , he'd let you know. The serial numbers will have his initials and the grips will have his face in it with his famous beard. I thought I'd share this article.

  34. And that is why we don't act like jackasses to other people in public because #1 it is not cool, #2 it does nothing constructive and #3 you never know exactly where someone is mentally and you could end up being the straw that breaks the camel's back and #4 you never know who is primed and capable of delivering a biblical level of retribution. What is it Spaide said as he shot Mrs Goy in the head? "You should've kept your f&^%ing mouth shut!" Seems pretty clear what the motivation was.....

  35. Her ability to deflect political stuff and just serve the people of Sevier county and the state at large is so polished that no amount of money or training could buy it if you wanted it. She is as good a patron saint as Tennessee could hope for. She deserves a statue. I hope they’ll honor her wishes and wait until she’s gone.

  36. Not to belabor the point too much, but bear with me. In 1997 if you only had 10 mags and a preban mag was $100+, then rebuilding magazines was a reasonable option. In 2020 when you can buy single magazines for as little as $10-12, or have 100 magazine cases drop shipped to your house for $8-900, there’s no reason to spend the same amount on rebuild kits. Don’t overthink it, just buy more mags. This is mostly focused on AR mags, but Glock mags are cheap and readily available right now as well. Most damage that renders a magazine unusable is to the body itself. It isn’t the f

  37. I have well over 100 emails and untold phone calls, etc just since the election. If you are sitting on your hands doing nothing then you have no right to complain or act surprised. Kinda like the ammo situation. And if you think playing nice, being reasonable or any decent thought processes are going to work then you've already lost. We've been at war for a long time. Many just don't want to a accept that fact. If you think Trump is who was hated you've not been paying attention. This group hates me and any other 2A defending, conservative, patriotic citizen. And I'm not talking jus

  45. I think Chuck and Chip and A.J. and a few others have done a good job covering the answer but I want to touch on the above question. We don't pull our guns to threaten people. We pull our guns to stop the threat. If the threat ends at the draw or appearance of a firearm, it was a good day. If it takes being on target but the trigger never gets pulled, again, still a good day. But if it takes an empty mag plus a few more rounds, that's the amount of force we must use. Our goal should NEVER be to threaten anyone. Our primary goal is always the same. We use the actions and force n
