  1. The little missive I sent to magpul@magpul.com: To whom it may concern, I hope your efforts regarding stopping the recent anti-freedom bills introduced in the CO legislature bear fruit. Should they not, we'd love to have you here in Nashville, TN. No state income tax, a built-in workforce of skilled tradesmen and women, right to work laws, and a populace and legislature that would support your endeavors. Also, easy access to Fort Campbell, wherein you'll find many Magpul fans and therein eager testers of new products for the military and civilian markets. I'd further mention

  2. Sad thing is he's now afraid to draw his super hero pictures because he thinks he'll get suspended. One of his other friends got sent to the office for pretending he had a light saber. He said, "Dad, its just silly. Don't they know that boys like to pretend they have swords and guns. Girls don't like them but we do." Trying to fundamentally change our boys to girls and our rights to wrongs.

  6. Nothing anymore. They managed to gut this legislation of any value. It is useless and those voting for it should get no credit. This bill is the pro-gun equivalent of gun control legislation. A feel good measure that doesn't actually accomplish anything.

  7. +1 I was homeschooled 1st-12th. Even tho I didn't learn all the liberal, socialist, and godless things they teach in public schools for the most part today, I received a well-rounded education and have since completed a bachelors degree as well as a masters degree. To me not having to learn all the government imposed philosophy, has actually helped me in these days to discern what is right and what is bogus. When you know the truth and it is all you know, you quickly recognize a lie.

  8. We had to go through something similar, seems a classmate of my daughter said "I don't like you."   So now, the child has been labeled a bully, and all the parents were pulled together to find a solution.   They staff looked at me like I was insane when I said "Let them be kids and grow up."   Things are a little too touchy feeling anymore.

  10.   Once, again, just because I may go to the range and shoot at targets depicting assailants wearing ski masks doesn't mean I automatically associate wearing a ski mask with being 'evil' nor does it mean I am going to shoot someone simply for wearing a ski mask.  Likewise, just because I might shoot at a target depicting an assailant wearing an unbuttoned, flannel shirt over a t-shirt doesn't mean I am going to automatically equate being so dressed with being a criminal nor does it mean I will shoot flannel shirts on sight.   Heck, just because I might shoot at targets depicti

  11. Amazing to see so many advocates of the 1st & 2nd amendments perfectly ok with the idea of throwing the 6th out of the window. Don't get me wrong; I don't care if the guy died by his own hand, or died from returned fire, but PD doesn't have the right execute him by any means if that's what happened.

  14. I had everyday experiences with these clueless sh** for brains principals, and liberal propaganda union loving teachers for thirty years. They threw common sense out the school windows over 40 years ago. Of course the liberalism malady afflicted the politicians, and just about every important authoritarian institution about the same time. This country has shot it's wad when it comes to having any leader with rational and common sense. I'm afraid we will be scratching and shaking our heads the rest of our lives reading, and hearing about the stupidity these liberal commie a** holes will be comm

  15. I need to add this to my last statement:   I unfriended an old classmate on Facebook last month (we graduated together in MO) because he kept posting things like "I'm tired of seeing all of these posts from all of you azzhats about Obama wanting to take your guns". Well one, he supported Obama, and two, he grew up hunting and shooting guns, and was too stupid to see what's going on now. I wonder what he thinks now that the law is in his state and not New York. But logically, he probably doesn't even know it's been introduced, since he was so uninformed before.

  17. Well, I gotta be honest, if this bill passes in Missouri the citizens of that state should forcibly overthrow that states government. This is the clearest violation of the 2nd Amendment yet. I can't imagine this happening in TN, but if it did I know I wouldn't be turning in my guns.

  21. 99% of what is does is allow certain Republicans (especially Harwell, Haslam and Ramsey) to claim they are pro-2A and did something to help the TN firearm community without actually causing any heartburn to the big businesses whose campaign contributions they so love and cherish.   Other than that, it doesn't do much.   I'm not sure at this point if it's worth passing or not...I wasn't expecting to get everything on a first pass but this is almost nothing.   I just emailed the entire legislature asking them to make this a good bill or don't bother...I also asked for a resp

  22. He was given lots of chances. In each one he decided to shoot officers or shoot at officers. The day he died he had two separate run ins with police, both times shooting at them, resulting in the wounding of one officer and the death of another. I don't know why anyone would assume that he would give up peacefully after that display, but apparently the police did when they tried to gas him. The fact that it caused a fire (no one knows if that is true) is inconsequential. They did everything within reason to allow him an opportunity to end this peacefully. He chose not to. I don't care i

  25. The issue with removing Cooper is that he has Davidson County and that is why he won't be beat. There are too many here that are living off of the government and have been convinced that the only way to keep the FREE money flowing their way is to keep voting Dem. Even with the odds stacked against anyone else taking his seat I'll work very hard for anyone running against him every time he comes up for re-election.

  26. Guess I need to take down all those "get it before they're banned" ads I have on gunbroker for my Tapco magazines I'm selling for $300 a pop. Really, there are going to be three types of people here in a few months... Those that will should be ashamed for ripping folks off; those who should be ashamed for getting ripped off; and those of us who have been sitting back watching this lunacy that had the decency not to rip anyone off and the sense not to get ripped off.

  27. Okay, that's great, but the people on the targets aren't supposed to represent the good guys, it's meant to represent the bad guys. Your comparison of putting US servicemen on targets doesn't make sense. Are we the bad guys? Are we currently fighting against US troops? Yes, I would find that offensive. We aren't fighting US troops in US gear, but we have been killing a crap load of people from the Middle East over the past decade, a fact you repeatedly refuse to acknowledge. But there are plenty of targets which depict white, black and Hispanic persons and no one gets so butthurt over th

  28. The argument made by the writer was interesting but invalid imho. Any argument based on a bad premise is a bad argument. If they looked at the historical reasoning and need for the 3rd Amendment, they may have realized in doesn't support the 2nd. In fact the reverse is true. The 2nd Amendment isn't subjucated to the 3rd, the 3rd is possible only because of the 2nd. This is the opposite of their argument. When it is said that the 2nd Amendment is the lynchpin of the Bill of Rights, it's not just a catchy phrase. If the 2nd is taken away, the other 9 can be dismantled but as long

  29. Broke down and bought the Platinum version of this exact gun :) Love it, just don't need 2. This has a very early serial number (under #200) and is LNIB. Probably a total of 150-175 rounds through her. Never a single problem, and its the softest shooting 9mm pocket gun I've ever owned :) No nicks, scratches, etc.... What Comes With: * XR9s * (2) Magazines * Box, Paperwork, Lock, & Manual. Asking: SOLD :) Location: Sumner County (Just North of Nashville)

At least you can't save it with one click.     - OS

  39. +2 for Christy. Very thorough and knows the subject cold. Unfortunately I am done doing business with Carter's, Benton Shooters Supply and every other gun shop that exploited pricing such as $50 30-round mags. My business will go to Sportsmans Warehouse, Academy Sports, Walmart, GT Distributors and a few more that did not cash in the craze. They earned my business and I vote with my dollars. A couple of those business' got some significant purchases from me in the last couple of months and I made sure they knew it was because of their ethics and business practices.

  45. Correct, it is *wrong/bigoted*  (I totally agree) but it is not illegal to be a bigot (yet).   People are not obligated to be PC or follow the moral compass of anyone else.   Those who are not offended can buy these things and shoot them.  Those who are offended can buy something else or shoot at a beer can instead.  What a great country!   I support their right to complain. I support the shop to choose to not sell these products by choice.   I would still shop there.    Because the above were all by choice, and not by law, nothi
