  1. I have to brag on my beautiful bride for getting me a Hold Up Displays 12 gun rack for my birthday. She is my best friend and puts up with all my craziness. Got it put up today and decided to show a few of my lever guns. When I open the door to the man cave this view smacks me in the face. I am truly Blessed!

  2. Robert, you've been a member here a long time. I know you aren't looking for charity but I hate to see you sell your gun just to put food on the table. I will personally send some money your way to help hold you over until unemployment comes. I can't speak for everyone but I bet we have some other members that will help. Do you have Venmo? It's a free app you download to your phone. All you have to do is link your bank account(it's safe).

  3. Last Easter I fashioned a Cross out of a couple of 1 x 4's and hung a wreath on it, in our front yard. We have a large circular flower bed with a bird bath in the center of it. Last winter the B-bath bowl split in half. I put the cross where the bird bath was, in the center of the flower bed, for the Easter Holiday. After the holiday week I just left the cross in it's place. I am a Christian and not ashamed to let people know. Long story short, our 16 Y O grandson is struggling with the on line learning, because of Covid, from his high school. Our daughter has been looking for a Tud

  5. 2020 and Another Thanksgiving. Not a Thanksgiving as a youngster eagerly anticipating Mom being up and 5 AM to put the turkey in the oven and all the great smells of great food cooking…the rolls…the potatoes…the dressing…and, of course, my Mom’s homemade noodles. I think I could almost live on those noodles alone. The remembrances of aunts and uncles and cousins coming over for dinner and sitting at the “children’s table”! Not a Thanksgiving where I’ve “graduated” to the adult’s table or no table at all as we couldn’t always seat everyone at the table…not a Thanksgiving where I was

  8. I think most folks know I lost Darby to Kidney failure about 2 months ago and I went on the quest for another best friend. I have Kasey and Darby both in urns on my Tv Console. I was limited to finding a new best friend as I couldn't go to the Rescue Centers in person to see the dogs. Well my daughter has Basset hounds and she went to pick up he newest puppy and she called me up while there and ask me if I would like to have a Bassett. The lady had a 6 year old female she was not going to breed again and was wanting to rehome her. She sent me a couple pictures and I told her to get the dog and

  9. Robert, I just sent by PayPal. Started to send a check, but saw your info and doing it faster this way. I'm so glad to have a small part in helping out. May all this help to keep you safe and secure until things get better for you. May God Bless and keep you safe. Once again, I'm so very glad to be a part of this forum/community/family. We may all be hated and feared by some in today's world; but I see men and women helping each other here. Time and time again I see this happen. This cannot be a bad group. Way too much love and support evident here.

  10. The video below is the best I have seen, to date, on how the AR15/M4/M16 (AR Platform) works. It covers everything, including a fantastic detailed overview of the firing sequence, in a very well done computer-rendered animation. It is eye opening to see how the pieces come together in a very elegant symphony. If there was any doubt in your head that Eugene Stoner was a genius, this should dispel those thoughts. Not only is this video just fun to watch, it is helpful to gain a solid understanding of how the rifle works so that you can troubleshoot it when it doesn't. Enjoy.

  12. I've probably posted these before, but I had them out of the safe and snapped a picture. My father made each of my sons a deer rifle. They are Mexican Mauser actions with Timney triggers and David Miller 3 position safeties. They are both chambered for 257 Roberts. I hope they will appreciate them as much as I do.

  14. I bought this when I was deciding if I wanted to go .300 Win Mag or 7mm Mag. I really like my Montana in .300 Win Mag so this one is up for sale. This was the SCI Gun of the Year for 2019. They made up 50 versions of this rifle with the custom floor plate and Vortex Viper HSLR 4-16x50 scope. This is #1 of the group. The rifle is brand new and come with the box. It has never been fired. I do not think I have even loaded it yet. I also two boxes of ammo I will include. The rifle runs $1600 and the scope $900. With the ammo and fees I have over $2600 invested in the rifle. I will let i

  17. I got the opportunity to teach a young 10 year old boy to shoot, for the first time, today. My grandson's Tudor had to bring her 2 children with her this afternoon, for the first hour. Their dad picked them up. While we were sitting in the house, I asked the children would they want to shoot a 22 rifle. The boy jumped on it. The 12 year old girl was afraid so I didn't not push her. I did see her looking out the window, toward my back yard range, as he shot. If they ever come back, I think she will shoot. We talked about safety and I showed both of them about my MDL 60 Marlin 22 rifle. Af

  18. I got this in a trade earlier this year. It is the only .22 mag I have and I do not think I am going to shoot it. I just have the rifle, no box, and 400 rounds, 8 boxes, of .22 mag ammo. $600 for everything.

  19. Cleaning out some more rifles that I never shoot. A former TGO member bought this lower in the group buy and built this AR. I bought it from him a couple of years ago and have never shot it. • CMT TGO lower • RRA Operator CAR buttstock and Houge pistol grip • Primary Arms Raptor charging handle • YHM TJ Competition rifle length forearm • YHM Slant Muzzle Brake • Flip up sights mounted at an angle • Burris P.E.P.R. scope mount • Bushnell AR/223 3-4x40 scope • Not sure what brand barrel This is a very well made, nice AR. This needs to go to

  20. A friend and I squared off with a couple rounds of Battleship, .22 LR style. My CZ 455 vs his Ruger Precision Rimfire. The Ruger won the day. We started at 50 yards, but decided that was too easy, so we moved out to 100. Then the wind picked up and the round got more expensive. We added some last-minute tribal rules. Black dots are worth two extra shots. 100 yards:

  31. I’ve been purchasing guns for a long time, and I’ve never had to send one back for warranty work until recently. I wanted to install a Surefire flash hider on my Springfield Armory 300BO pistol. When my gunsmith removed the original flash hider we found the threads were galled and the crush washer looked like it had been welded to the barrel. My second issue was with my Sig P365XL optics ready NRA edition. The screws that hold the optic cover in place were stripped and almost installed sideways. I contacted Springfield and they sent out a return label while we were on the phone, a

So I picked me out a big oak; overlooking the flat that runs down below the ridge where I seen him and made a plan to be in the woods a hour before daylight the next day. Got all settled in at 6 Friday morning, about 6:30 I heard somebody pull up down the mountain a bit and around 6:45 seen a flashlight shining on the flat I was watching from the ridge above. He must have been hunting that spot for a bit because he done had a ladder stand put up. I didn't want to move in on another hu

  34. I am more concerned about what will happen to the 2A and private ownership of firearms if this goes to Biden than I am about civil unrest. Unless you live somewhere that riots and protests are likely to occur, common sense and avoidance will likely keep you away from that sort of action. But other than exercising civil disobedience and becoming a criminal (on paper), you aren't going to easily "avoid" the sort of anti-2A tyranny that Sniffy Joe and Al Qaeda Harris have officially stated that they will attempt to enact..

Daughter and son in law showed up just long enough to bring me dinner which they brought enough for about 3 people so I have plenty of left overs for a couple days. And for desert I have my choice of Homemade Pecan pie, Homemade Pumpkin Pie or homemade Cheesecake and I couldn't believe it but she made me a Mincemeat Pie just for me which will be my first choice......LOL. For years I have said how much I miss not having any Mincemeat Pie at Thanksgiving and no one has ever made it in the family. All they said is that's a Yankee pie and

  37. You don't have to worry about the vaccine altering your DNA because it doesn't. As opposed to the traditional method of weakening a virus and then introducing it into your body so that you mount an immune response to a specific protein found on the virus, the DNA and RNA vaccines introduce genetic sequences of the virus into your body. Certain cells then use that genetic material to produce the targeted protein, which then stimulates the the immune response. The cells do not mutate (i.e., change their own DNA). There are actually a host of reasons why DNA and RNA vaccinations are a lot saf

  40. Approximately 7 weeks ago I sent the slide from my 4.25" duty-size M&P M2.0 9mm to Doug Presson at DP Custom Works to have their GAB 4.0 package and a fresh jet-black nitride finish applied to it. Today, it came back and I quickly reassembled it with a Trijicon RM07 red dot, 10-8 Performance sights (M&P front, Glock rear) and an Apex Tactical Specialties striker safety plunger. I am ambivalent about the Apex trigger on the M2.0 series so I have skipped that for now. They look good for social media but I built this to be a fighting gun. Some time ago I smoothed out the area

  42. Why the hate for Corporations? They employ the average worker trying to maintain a family just the same as the small businesses do. The top 10 large corporation in Tennessee employ over a million workers. Everyday hourly workers. Coming from a manufacturing background I just don’t get this “destroy the rich” mentality. Do people not understand that those people and businesses create jobs? As far as poor people go, when you shut off the income of almost anyone; they will be "poor". Nancy Pelosi and her Democrats refused to help them.

  43. I know that wasn’t directed at me, but sure, if you google it there are plenty of Doctors taking pay cuts, and plenty of Doctors taking leave. But my point is simply that I, like most of us is trying to determine the real risk of this. I do not doubt even a little bit that Covid is killing people, and it can kill me. But turning off the economy is killing people also. So my question is… Is the data real? If health care facilities or states are getting federal aid; good. If they are getting it based on the number of deaths; everyone will be a Covid death and we have no way of knowing what the r

Then I looked again trying to figure out what I was seeing on his head. I was half standing, twisted to my left, and leaned back against the tree when I shot....the first time. He jumped, looked towards my direction and immediately resumed making scrapes and rubs all the while easing CLOSER to my stand. I couldn’t believe he didn’t run off! I reloaded just knowing that any second he’d be gone like the wind
