  1. Yesterday evening i was out in the storage shed behind my house. While i was looking out a car pulls up to the stop sign by my yard as i live on a corner lot. They throw a bag of mcdonalds garbage out the window right into my yard. Now i ride my bike a lot and i knew exactly when this person stays or lives. Which is 3 streets over. Anyways i wait for night and ride my bike right over to his house and throw his bag of trash right in his driveway by his car. Was that wrong of me? Cause i felt justice when I did it.

  2. Yesterday I went to Knoxville for work.  Things went faster than normal so I had a few minutes to kill.  Went to Gander Mountain to take a look at some guns, ammo, and reloading supplies with the ideal of I might buy something.  Got the "got to have something new" thing going on for about a week now.  Not knowing what I want, just want to look to see what catches my eye.  Now, it has been several years since I have been in one of their stores and it did not take me long to remember the reason why.   Prices!!!  They are proud of their guns and ammo.

  3. Moving here and complaining about how our state runs is paramount to someone picking on your sister. It's okay if you do, but nobody else is allowed. But seriously, we get a lot of transplants here and all they do is bitch and moan about how much better things were where they came from. It just gets old and we tend to get defensive after hearing it for so long. They are usually from much farther north, though. "Take your whining ass back home" is just a natural knee-jerk reaction. There must be something they/you like about TN or you wouldn't have moved here. It's usually jobs, no income t

  8. Just a reminder...  Saturday August 24 is this year's Free Hunting Day in TN.  I would like to encourage everyone who has the day off to take somebody out to bag a few tree rats.  And keep in mind, it's not just for kids...  it is open to anyone, such as a family member who has expressed some interest in shooting, an older neighbor who maybe hasn't been hunting in years but misses the experience, or a co-worker who doesn't know what he or she has been missing.  No hunting license needed, but Hunter Safety regulations do apply.   http://www.state.tn.us/twra/ &nb

  12. Marlin 1894 in .357.  Might be a little iffy at 150 yds at killing deer but it will hit a man at that distance.  10 shots and you can load as you shoot and never go off sights.  It will hunt squirrel to deer and has a reputation and a pedigree that are outstanding.  Ammo is easy to find in .38 and .357.  The biggest plus not mentioned is it goes very well with the "only one pistol" idea, my S&W 681 .357.

From the mouth of Peter, Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: I don't believe these things plagued men of clear conscience years ago like they do now. At least, not with such great frequency. Something bad is coming. AND HEY!! If it ain't, you'll have lost NOTHING by being prepared for it. Quite the contrary, you will rest easier.

I'll pick some 3rd party or write someone in and i'm not going to listen to that argument about, if you don't vote for a pub then you are voting for the dem BS. I'm not selling my principals any more. I'm sure the liberal media and liberal politicians hope that Christie gets the nomination because they know he could loose several states to a 3rd party candidate. In many ways he would be more dangerous and

  20. I went to the local Walmart here in Greeneville to buy a shotgun the other day and they told me that it was going to be 24 hour wait because of some terrorist red flag policy that the government was under. I told him that was bull crap and that I would just buy it somewhere else. Now that didn't hurt his feelings, but its the principal of the matter. If you are going to delay my transaction don't give me some lame excuse, man up and tell me why you are doing it. Luckily for me I went right down the road and got a better deal on a upgraded shotgun and got it order in a timely manner. I would ra

Yeah, ANOTHER Zimmerman post.  For those of you who are members of the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network, you probably received the August newletter in your email box this morning.  In it, Marty Hayes has an excellent article on Lessons Learned in the Zimmerman Case.  Very well written and informative.  I will share some bulletpoints and my own comments:   1.  Cost of the Case -  Evidently, Zimmerman's cost to date on his defense is over $400,000.  Part of that was $95,000 to his bail bond.  Even the best of self-defense insurance policies won'

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure 100 of those same responses went out at the same time but at least they took the time to make it a good one. Plus you got thanked for your business, how often does that happen anymore?

  27. I don't believe our country would be like a s### house we're living in now if Romney had been POTUS the last four and half years with our liberties and freedoms being threatened everyday. I don't believe Romney would be trampling our Constitutional rule of law like Obama has done. I don't believe Romney would be apologizing to Muslim and Communist nations for American exceptionalism. I don't believe Romney would be deliberately trying to push our nation over the cliff economically and socially. But I'm glad you're really enjoying the foul odor emanating from the current occupant of the WH.

  28. The only powders I've been missing lately, at the gun shows I've worked for David, have been the powders like CFE223, which has always been hard to find, the other .223 powders, and stuff like the 4831SC, which we have now. Even have Varget, to those who pray to that alter. 4064, 4895 and 4350 have almost always been on the carts. Even been getting the WC846, which is Bl-C2, a good .223/.308 powder.   What I wonder about is that if you can't find the powder you want, and that does seem to happen often, why don't more of you go look a a burn chart and try an alternate?

  29. At one time the type weapon you use was recorded on the class form and the law did mention you could take just the range portion again with a different firearm.   However the has changed no and there is absolutely no firearm information (Make, Caliber, Ser# etc...) recorded on the form.  So not sure how the they could prove what type weapon you took the class (purposely didn't say 'qualify') with these days.

  30. I generally keep a long gun in my vehicle. Not so much to protect myself when out and about but to protect myself if I come home and someone is in my home. If I come home with only a pistol and someone is in my house I am already substantially out gunned. At least if I have a long gun in the vehicle I can meet them on a level playing field.

  34.   They are coming out with a Rockem Sockem Robot Movie   Anyone here have an SST, those were shiny cars with a large wheel in the middle of the body, took a zip tie looking thing with a handle, pulled it through the wheel. They would go about a million MPH. If your hand caught the wheel, you'd have a heck of a burn. if the car hit someone, they would be hurting, because almost all of the SST's had pointy front ends. My understanding is thats why they took them off the market, bad burns and pointy front ends.

  35. For the benefit of the OP (and everyone else I guess).... A prosecutor, if they decide to charge will use EVERYTHING against you, what kind of ammunition you used, what type of firearm, whether you altered your firearm (little skull end plate on your Glock, etc), what you were wearing, your training, your lack of training, how often you practice and how often you don't, and EVERYTHING you've ever posted to an internet forum/social media site. The prosecution will use all those things and more as weapons against your claim that your used of deadly force was justified. If you take training cou

  46. It depends. I run Magpul BUIS simply because they're a backup. If I ran irons only I'd run some metal from someone like Troy or another reputable company. As far as optics, again I say it depends on how you use your gun. If it's going to be a range gun (like most of mine) I personally think it's crazy to run a $500 red dot. On my AR pistol I run a Primary Arms M3 clone, and it's been great for me. On my rifle, I run a Vortex Crossfire II 3-9x40 on a Burris PEPR mount. If you have money to blow, by all means buy whatever optic you want, but to me unless you're going to combat/using in the field

  47. I have the Magpul MBUS rear sights on all my rifles. I buy them because they're light, cheap, and they work. I might get something a little better if I ever actually shot with irons. I don't. They're strictly for backup.   There's a little more to the selection of a front sight. The Magpul won't work on a railed gas block. It's too low, and it will melt. There are a few metal flipup sights that are designed for gas block mounting. I have a couple. One is from Midwest Industries, and I don't recall who made the other. I do have one rifle with an MBUS front sight that's mounted on a Danie

  48. Going through a difficult time lately, and I have 1 rifle in the house.  This may sound like someone wedded to the past, but that one rifle is my Garand.   Recoil is quite manageable.  It is a few pounds heavier than I'd really like these days, true - but I'm not up to playing action hero anymore, so very unlikely I'd have to tote it very far.   The caliber will stop anything I'm likely to shoot at with a rifle - I can't recall ever hearing that 30-06 is an underperformer.  I've even clipped up some black tip on the off chance I'm attacked by Christine

  49. Not quite. The 5.45 does need velocity to perform just like the 5.56. 5.56 will yaw, just like the 5.45, providing the twist is correct and the bullet is not over stabilized. Fragmentation is secondary to tumbling. If a bullet does not yaw or tumble is generally does not fragment, at least not FMJ. And the 5.56 will tumble and fragment providing the velocity is high enough AND the twist is slow enough. If is generally accepted that a FMJ 5.56 will fragment as long as the bullet tumbles and the velocity is sufficient. I will have to go back and look but I believe it is generally accepted
