    You have to do the math. If you're working 80 hours a week, averaging 190 per unit at 9.5 units per month that equals $5.64 per hour. A $9 per hour 40 hour week gets you close to the same numbers and you get half your life back. Was in auto industry for nearly 25 years. To make big money in sales you have to have repeat business and referrals. Unfortunately that takes time to develop (3 years generally to see it start paying off). Most can't survive that long. If you are waiting for walkups or dealer advertising to drive sales for you it is even tougher. You have to go create sales for yourself. If you hate what you do my only advice is to change now. Life is too short. Good luck.

    While the article doesn’t make it clear, if these folks were unindicted and unconvicted, then we have another word for this. Theft.

    That’s certainly true. But, it’s double the less than minimum wage he’s making right now. And, the benefit of being done at 3:30 is that you could reasonably do something else like lessons or a part time gig. Sometimes when you’re down in a pit, it doesn’t seem like there’s any hope. I know Mikey’s is a loyal worker. The benefit of someone his age is that they’re also pretty dependable. I’m hoping something pans out. And soon.

    Monday my son & I were on our way back home from Asheville and since Bud's gun shop is only a few miles off our route home, we thought who can resist. So we stopped. I had no intension of swiping plastic for anything other than some 22 std vels.....maybe. That philosophy failed miserably since unknown to me Buds bought a bunch of these police Star BM 9mm pistols to dump on the market. The carot came in the shape of a big yellow sale tag on original boxed guns with the $199.99 digits printed largely across the center of the tag. Now I'v seen this sort of bate & sell before in shotgun news and other on line distributors with even better pricing but who knows what condition you end up with and the Star had a good rep but I never held one of these older steel frame BM guns in my hand. I had to fix my ignorance of the matter by getting to hold the sample on one of the 6 boxes in the case. Needless to say, I was quite impressed with the scaled down 1911 9mm! Further thought provoked me into getting all 6 guns out of their boxes and bingo, a near mint unit with about 90 percent hardly worn blueing. I jumped on it as did my son for the second best one. All I can say is wow.... what a deal on a very well made mini 1911 style 9mm. Very happy with its quality of craftsmanship. 36 feet off a wood block rest with wolf ammo I highly recommend these steel Star BM's as great "cant kill it" 9's...... that handle great box after box!

    I just find it difficult to have sympathy for folks like that, when men, women and children are dying over there due to no fault of their own, not to mention our troops that pay the ultimate sacrifice to attempt to bring safety to those regions. Don't get me wrong, I find no joy in their deaths, and do consider their killers the bad actors in this, but just like those idiots that intentionally cross into wild animal enclosures, like the hippo slapper, if they die in the attempt, I'll not shed a tear. Call me cold hearted if you will, but sympathy is hard to come by for those folks.

    Where is the "sympathy line" for some of you? Two people, whose greatest fault was naivety coupled with idealism, were brutally murdered. They may not have been smart in proceeding as they did, but they certainly did not deserve to be brutally murdered.

    For sale my Smith and Wesson 686 revolver with 6 inch barrel, 357 magnum / 38 calibre. Serial number AHYXXXX shows this gun was manufactured between July - October 1985. I've owned it 10 years and have shot less than 250 rounds with it, cleaned and oiled it thoroughly after each use. Very well kept as you can see by the very good condition shown in the pictures. Includes a padded case. I also have ammo to sell at less than market price. Gun is $575 OBO. Located in Memphis.

    Don't be fooled, there are lots of East TN members here. Some are just quite until they see something that catches their eye. A benefactor membership was a great investment for me. More so in meeting good people than even buying or selling.

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/dicks-says-under-armour-new-gun-sales-policy-dragged-on-results-1535565173 They're trying to pin it mostly on slipping Under Armor sales and say that hunting was a low-margin business and they're going to reclaim that space for higher-margin items like baseball equipment. I think they're missing the point. I never once bought anything gun-related at Dick's. It was too expensive and there was never anyone around to get a box of said overpriced ammo out of the cage. But my wife and I used to buy some clothes there. After their gun-dump we stopped. Their anti-gun position didn't just remove low-margin hunting sales, it removed customers who buy other high-margin things too.

    That's just it, they're not citizens, they're subjects. We pointed out the difference a couple hundred years ago.

    I'm thinking Mrs. GreginTenn is wondering how long it is going to take Mr. GreginTenn to figure out that she wants to "gig", just not frogs... I mean, how hard does a girl have to work to get her man out in the woods at night without the kids... sheesh...

    It's heavy, ugly as sin, cheap, and has one awful trigger, but shoots remarkable well! I'm talking about my new Hi-Point 45! I kind of/sort of bought it as a joke and even ordered new grips for it with $100 bills on it from hipoint45.com just to make it that much uglier... but I am really impressed with it. My Mom, Son, and I have a family shooting night at least once a month so I took it out to Royal Range tonight to play with it. 7 Yards produced the following:

    I wish someone had thought of this when our kids were in school. It would have been a lot cheaper in the long run photoupload

    Picked up an HK P30 V3 the other day : ) Replacing my Glock 19 as primary (but the Glock isn't going anywhere; I still like it).
