  2. BE WARNED: SCAMMERS ARE ACTIVELY WORKING AGAINST THE GUN COMMUNITY ON TGO AND OTHER INTERNET FORUMS IN THE BUY/SELL/TRADE AREAS. Folks, lately we have seen a significant uptick in scam attempts that go like this: You post an ad for an item for sale or wanted. A scammer contacts you about the item you are selling or looking for and offers to put you in contact with a friend or relative in Texas or some other state. Throughout the whole thing, your Spidey Sense is tingling and telling you it seems suspicious... because it is! We stro

  3. I haven't had that issue, but I would certainly leave negative feedback for someone that didn't show up. That is about the only recourse we have. If they post without a price listed, they are probably new to TGO so a good indication to not get your hopes up too much. It is unfortunately a part of the current situation. On the other side, I have dealt with some new guys that have been great. I feel it is important we don't lump them all in to one group, but certainly we need to hold all to our standards (at least when selling ).

  4. As a former LEO and martial artist who has used neck restraints countless times, I agree with the verdict. Once the suspect is cuffed and prone you release the restraint - period. With Chauvin's experience, he knows this. I watched the video screaming at Chauvin to get off his neck. He's getting what he deserves, IMHO. I don't think that the officers behind him are responsible, but the one who could see Floyd's face and clearly hear his pleas should be charged as he was indifferent to the situation.

  5. Well lemme see here.... I'm sitting there having dinner and suddenly a rowdy crowd of protesters appears and is backing me up against a wall and screaming in my face. Yeah, I'd think it would be reasonable to feel threatened enough to go into self defense mode.

  6. I will say it. Quit being cheap asses and support a site that you come to in order to get the information you NEED, but yet you aren't willing to spend $35 to be a benefactor? Do you smoke, drink, drink coffee, or just have a hobby? Maybe I am way off base, but I waste $35 on week on stupid ####. You get a whole year. Quit being cheap! If you value the service, invest a small bit in it so it is here in the future when you need it again. Or maybe go somewhere else and find it. It pisses me off to no end to see people bitch about spending $35 but they don't flinch to spend $1

  10. So far, I've never been in a civilian firefight, but have been in plenty in Vietnam. There is no such thing as too much ammo. Just because there was only 4 or 5 rounds fired this time, doesn't mean that will always be the case. Funerals these days are much more expensive than ammo ( if you can find any ). Like many things gun related, it's a personal choice. If you're comfortable with a six shooter, have at it. If you need 15+ to feel safe, do that. FWIW, I carried 400 rds for the M16 + 18 rds for the M203 Grenade launcher. Sometimes, I was a bit concerned with that.

  11. The families of the victims of the "DC snipers" sued and won against Bushmaster. The company was sold to Freedom Group and closed post Sandyhook. Bushmaster was later reponed in Ilion, NY but with different staff. The previous staff repoened as Windham Arms. It is said the Windham Bushmaster guns are of higher quality than the Ilion, NY ones. The Windham ones are also from an era when there was only Colt, Bushmaster, DPMS, Olympic making civilian AR15s at true government service specs and not cheap before everyone and thier brother started knocking out AR15's. I have both, my Windham is notica

  13. Very true. I agree. However, word of warning.... Years ago in a passed life I had several saltwater reef aquariums, helped startup a local hobby club, and participated in online chat forums regularly on Reefcentral (TGO for reefers!) We started having club meetings at peoples homes (cuz you can't haul a 200 gallon aquarium to the park!) Really good times: pizza, chips, soda, coffee, great conversations, faces to names, and the trading, OMG the trading... people pull up with 50 gal coolers filled with little plastic baggies... but I digress.

  15. I look at it this way, right or wrong. If you sell your stash at market prices, then that is between you and the buyer. But, if you purposefully clean out the LGS or other sporting goods store at normal prices just to turn around and sell them at market prices then you are a douchbag. You are not adding any value to the sale whatsoever. You just took away someone's opportunity to purchase at near normal (cause it's going up everywhere) just to line your pockets.

  16. I had wanted a Marlin 1894CST since they first came out and couldn't find one. So I found this 18" Marlin 1894CS in .357 and set out to build my ideal version of the CST. I added a Saddle Ring Safety Delete from Beartooth Mercantile, Skinner winged 1894 peep sight, Skinner Bear Buster white stripe front sight, Skinner dovetail filler, Wild West Guns aluminum magazine follower, and had the barrel threaded 1/2x28 by my gunsmith for my suppressor. Suppressor is not included. I have loved and shot this gun for the past year and a half or so firing approximately 400 rounds, mostly 158 grain .38

It said: "Hi if your still looking, I can help out with a lead, you can reach out to steven in Texas he has the _______ for sale this is his email address stevenmaws@gmail.com good luck" If you google that email stevenmaws@gmail.com you'll see it has been involved in lots of scams over the last month. Be wary! They may change the email or message, but be super wary of 0 reputation people selling stuff out of state!

  19. I'm sorry but I just don't believe that more welfare-like programs are going to solve the issue of gun violence in the inner cities of America. We have been financially supporting people for decades now and if anything, it's just getting worse. I think we've created a system of dependency and fraud where you have millions of people that are healthy enough to work but choose not to because it's too easy to survive without a paycheck. I'm in favor of helping people with drug addiction and mental health issues but giving them a monthly check to continue being a non-contributor is the wrong approa

  22. Been here less than a year. Post when I feel like I should. Try to stay out of the dog house with other members. I have only made on purchase from another member and had no issues whatsoever. In the few months I've been a member I have seen a change myself in the members both new and established. I believe it is a sign of the time we are in. Everyone is nervous and edgy, there is very little trust and zero tolerance. If I am buying I expect to go to where the seller is or chooses. If I am uncomfortable, I would just back out. Some seem to believe they should just not show. As for sales,,

  24. You did ask a legitimate, thought provoking question. Thankfully someone quoted it. The response was not personal. i’d wish you’d just put it back. The more stories like that the better. Doesn’t mean there’s ever going to be a solution but people need to know the reality.

Although I let my father talk me out of a stint in military service, I feel I have been a productive citizen. I started working farm labor at 10 years old, and have done something productive and lucrative ever since. I am white, a Christian, and member of a Baptist church.

  30. I tried eating gar last year and now it's the main fish I try to catch. The skin is hard as plastic and you need tin-snips to cut it open. After you get it open there are 2 long boneless loins on each side of the back. No need to gut it or skin it. The meat is odorless and firm like chicken. It's like alligator and I love it !!! This Gar was 3 feet long and both loins were around 15 inches long and nice and thick.

  32. As often as I am able to get out shooting these days, especially with current ammo availability issues, this has become my most utilized gun. The trigger is horrible and it won't group worth a damn but my four legged shadow does not seem to mind. Who else is rocking the K9 Kannon? The rounds are dirt cheap and available just about everywhere!

  33. I've said it before and I'm saying it again: Those people are stealing. No one is entitled to the fruit of someone else's labor. Someone spent time and money to provide that service to the gun community. Whether you like them or their practices or not, they get to set the rules for their service and the rules are that people pay a fee to sell or trade. It burns me up that people think this sort of petty theft is OK. I also question the sanity of dealing with a seller who will steal a few dollars from a business. If they're willing to rob the website of pocket change, are they g

  34. I’d say here, But it’s also got a paywall for the classifieds. This is one of those moments that I think it’s appropriate to remind folks of an immutable law of the Internet. If you aren’t paying for a service, you aren’t the customer. You’re the product.

  38. I've been watching it now for over an hour. He also had an extended magazine in his backpack. This DA is about as professional and thorough and we could hope for. I've found her to be extremely credible during this press conference. The kid had a history of violence both with his GF and with law enforcement. He brought a gun to school, he pulled and shot and police, and they returned fire. One shouldn't expect any other outcome. The community should be ashamed of how they jumped to conclusions.

  39. Up until the most recent "scare" I have never had an issue with anyone doing what they say they are going to do on TGO. Recently I have had a no show (guy is gone from TGO apparently), and an issue where someone has offered up a gun I was looking for then broke off communication completely when I asked for a price. I guess its the times now. I was raised to do what I said I was going to do when I said I was going to do it. I have passed up higher offers on guns and accessories after I had verbally committed to a deal with another person, even on Armslist. Its the right thing to do. Sorry

  44. I'm very forgiving of when people can't make a scheduled appointment. I'm not forgiving if they don't communicate it. Life happens and I understand that, but a text, DM, or email takes but a moment. Like putting your grocery carriage in the space for them instead of leaving it to hit another car, it's one of life's little decency tests that everyone should pass.

  46. One nice Colt MKIV Series 80 Mustang in .380. Nice shape, I have owned this gun for nearly 25 years. Nice blue with a tiny bit of blue discoloration on the front strap. Been that way since the day I bought it. Pictures make it look worse than it is. This is the steel frame gun not the pocketlite. Functions as it should. Will come with 3 magazines. One blue and two stainless, all factory colt mags. I will also throw in approx 2 full boxes of ammo, maybe a little more, maybe a little less. I need $700 for all of it. FTF most anywhere around Nashville.

  47. As far as fast food goes, I’ll take chipotle all day long. For seven or eight bucks you get two meals out of stuff that started as whole ingredients this morning. When I’m traveling, I dig the breakfast sandwiches from Starbucks. Again, whole foods and pretty tasty. I could eat the sausage, egg and cheese on an English muffin every day. I don’t know what sort of magic is in those ovens they use - maybe @RED333could tell me - but man they get those things hot fast. If I want a burger that I’m not cooking myself, it’s Hugh Baby’s here in Nashville. A good burger, fries that taste

  49. Absolutely. I wish I had an easy answer for how to help folks with mental problems. They are humans and deserve the same respect and dignity as the rest of us. I’m not sure the best way to go about helping them, but there has to be something better than them sleeping under a bridge and holding a sign begging for money. Mental illness is a disease that is often treatable, not unlike cancer or some other affliction.
