  1.   There... since we are talking about Dick's, I fixed it for you.

  2. I have had the TGO lower sitting in the safe look at me every time I open the safe. I was at the show this weekend and found a builder there that built me a pistol upper for $275 otd. So I figured it was time to use the lower. I headed to another vendor that had complete blemished pistol tube and buffer for $20. I did not pick up a LPK because I figured I could find one for the same price at a LGS. I was running out of time so I passed on that and went home. I had some free time so I went to my new favorite shop and picked up a RRA LPK. I got home and was a little tenitive to start on it bec

  5. I would have flagged you if I'd seen your ad. Sorry I missed it.   Congrats on $100 for reselling to people so desperate/foolish they paid your prices. Maybe if folks like you keep it up we can have a manufactured 22lr crisis for years to come.

  6. I'm not trying to put anyone out of business or judge anyone who still shops there. I just choose not to spend MY money at any place that chooses to screw over their customers at the drop of the hat. Think of it as a positive. I guarantee you will never have to compete with me to purchase an item at Dick's or CTD.

  7. I'll buy from Dicks, CTD, S&W, Ruger, Troy, whoever. My firearms bucks are predominately apolitical -- if they're selling weapons or weapons related stuff at all, I can only see it as a overall plus, the more the better.   I'll let other folks attempt to put all the places that don't live up to the nth level of their 2A expectations out of biz.   - OS

  8. My wife went to the bring up the garbage can one day and as soon as she touched the handle, a pack of wasps swarmed her. They were all around a pine tree we have, so i figured they were just near the area, so I went to check it out. I started to grab the trash can and "Did you check that door for heat?" popped in my head. So I booted the can.    For record, i can run faster than I thought...... they made a nest the entire width of the can under the handle.   I came back with two cans of 25' stream wasp killer and had myself a shootout. My neighbor came outside laughing becau

  9. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that to be 100% legal when selling someone a firearm in TN, you need to do two things: #1 - Ask the buyer if they are legally allowed to own a firearm in the state of Tennessee and/or if they are a convicted felon #2 - Ask them if they are a resident of Tennessee   Legally, you do not have to actually see their DL or HCP, just ask them if they are a resident of TN.....but just to cya,  it's a good idea to ask to see their DL or HCP anyway.   Anything else, like a bill of sale, is up to you. Personally, if the gun I'm selli

  12. That is a fair price. Glad you found a good deal. They seem to be fewer and fewer these days.   Unfortunately I hold a grudge for a long time. As far as I'm concerned Dick's can choke on themselves.

  14. I work for a cell phone company and one of the demo phones got stolen.  Any other time, I would have been deeply upset. Hell, I might even try to beat the bastard. But allas, today was the perfect day. A group of people came in while we where busy and after a while left in a hurry. While security cameras help, this next bit threw me in a frenzied laugh. One of the suspects left "selfies" on two separate phones. And They where good too. Got all his tattoos and facial features without an issue. Even the metro officer shock his head at this. I cant wait for this guy to be caught. BTW, even t

  17.   Yeah, statute says only if "knowing or having reasonable cause to believe" it is stolen.   About the only way a sting can work on a buyer, like "hey I've got this great .357 heater, pretty sure it was stolen, so I can make you a great deal on it!"   - OS

  19. Short answer. You hand me the money, and I hand you the firearm. If I do not know you to be a felon, and the gun isn't stolen, and assuming we are both of legal age, we've pretty much covered the legal bases.

  20. Another easily made explosive is TATP. It is also EXTREMELY detonation sensitive. There are plenty of cases of it being detonated from walking across the dust on the floor. I personally would never think about trying to make it but the ingredients are found in almost any store.

  21.   Oh, it's not a bad deal, really. And I'm sure lots of folks appreciate the heads-up from you. It's just that some of us have an axe to grind with Dick's for various principled reasons, and even if they were selling pallets of .22LR with no limit, they wouldn't get a penny from me. :rant: However, I don't frown on other folks who choose to shop there. It's a personal choice... not putting you down at all.   Sorry if the snarky mini-rants de-railed the thread-- hope you can snag as much 9mm as you need.

  22. Yes we do. They were in a fight in the car, the officer was injured and a shot was fired inside the car. That is not in dispute. I just could not care less if the thug was throwing up his hands somewhere between round 2 and round 6. If anyone decides to open carry in a protest against Police, I don't want to be anywhere around. One nutcase cranks off a round and bodies start dropping.

  24. Nice.  You know, your comment about antler handle neck knives made me think of something.  If you went with a smallish blade knife (like about the size of the CRKT 'minimalist') and worked out a way to make the 'sheath' and handle both out of antler - or maybe attach a good bit of antler to the sheath - then did a little carving, etc. on the antler you could probably completely disguise the fact that it is a knife, at all.  Not for any nefarious purpose, of course, but just because that would be kind of cool.

  25. If I thought there was a legitimate police brutality problem in my town I would. The timing leads me to believe this is a reactionary protest from the events in MO. If that's the case I think they would be well advised to remove their heads from their butts and start protesting thuggish behavior and attacks on police officers.

  28. I’m not sure why you think it would matter? Where the gun came from will have zero impact on a shooting and I don’t really think my carry gun is going to be confiscated for any period of time unless I’m going to trial, in which case the cost of the gun will be pretty insignificant compared to lawyer bills.

Everyone knows that those anti gun laws will do nothing to stop what goes on in places like Chicago and Detroit. It's easy to say you dont need a gun for self defense when you have the entire secret service protecting you and yours.

  32. Ok guys, good news, bad news. Today I brought the pup back into work with the idea that we could go to the humane society during lunch. I put her outside in our closed lot this morning to do her business while I took care if some things and she bolted. Apparently our gate has just enough give that she was able to squeeze through. Not good. So I went off in search down the alley and sure as day come across her back in her real yard being pet by her owners looking happier than a pig in waste. They were scolding her when I came up, but she looked ok and want shying away at all from them. I

  33. The cop had been beaten in the face and a round had been fired inside the car in a fight for control of his weapon. If that had been you (as a cop or protecting your family) and you were shooting to stop the threat would you not be outraged if someone suggested you could have used a taser? If you had thought about that a couple of minutes longer, do you think you still would have asked that? If you were protecting yourself or your family from an attack from a thug and you emptied a 15 round mag into him most here would support you. I know I would. I simply do not care if somewhere between rou

  34. The problem is additional cost of buying commercially available targets.   Commercially sold "tannerite" is ~$5 a pound while the components to make your own is well under $1 per pound.  Last time I bought some AN, which was about 4 years ago, it cost me $17 for 50 pounds. The aluminum powder is $5 per pound. So for $12 you can make 20 pounds of exploding targets. That same 20 pounds is $170 through a popular retailer.   Another HUGE problem I have is the unnecessary regulation of things that should not be regulated at all.   If I can legally own the firearm to s

  36. And your tone of cop bashing should expect to be answered in kind. But you know, you're right. I defer to your extensive experience as a shooter. Obviously if you were in the same situation you would have performed flawlessly in every way possible.

I have been in a few cases over the years were I exchanged gun fire with another person or two and when you have in coming all you can do in return is send out going in hopes that you strike your target before they strike theirs in some cases and yea, you do have a few rounds in that type of situation that may go astray but when you fighting for your life that is the farthest thought from your mind unless you do have enough time to get a look at what may be behind the person trying to kill you. At that point you might and I say might change or alter your technique and maybe you won't. #1 is yo

  38. Umm, sorry, I wasn't aware he hit any bystanders. On another note, when you get in a shoutout and you're in fear for your life you can start judging folks on their marksmanship. I've been in a lot of gun fights. One in particular was very close. Not every round hit the intended target. Things are different than when you're shooting at paper in a controlled environment. Then again, what do I know. You armchair quarterbacks know everything and are the most awesome shooters ever.

  39. I don't post here much. Just a professional lurker.   We had a little 15lb mutt for 17years while I was growing up. He moved everywhere with us, Utah, Mississippi, England, Kansas, then back to Mississippi. After he passed(my dad cried) he said no more dogs for us. So bout 8 years ago a friend of his was having to give up their little black lab. Dad decided it was time for a dog again and he got Alex.   The next year a skinny skittish rottweiler with no collar started hanging around my parents house. After a week or so my dad felt sorry and decided to start feeding her. She would

Brass to the face is the only occasional issue I have.   It's a global standard, parts are easy to come by, magazines are quite reasonable compared to other makers' goods, and you get rid of one at a very predictable price if the need should arise. What's not to love?

  42.   Well, to be fair, the guy was 30 feet away from him at one point. He could have drawn a taser. That being said, this department doesn't have dashcams, they may not even have tasers.   Also, I'm not saying the cop did anything wrong.

  45. It's funny how nobody wants to develop their own loads anymore. When I was learning to reload, it was fun to experiment with different loads till I found the one my gun liked. Now I see this on all kinds of gun boards. People asking for the best load for their gun.   My opinion. Start with the suggested starting load and work up till you find one that you like.
