  1. Well, it's finally here. Took almost a year and a half but I have my new double rifle in my hot little hands. She's a bespoke double built specifically for me by L'Atelier Verney Carron. Azur model in .450-400 Nitro Express. She handles like a dream. I can close my eyes and shoulder the rifle... when I open them the sights are perfectly aligned. The balance on this thing is unbelievable and makes this 9.6lb rifle feel much lighter than it is. Of course all this quality comes at a steep price... this is by far the most expensive weapon I've ever purchased and the only way I pulled it off is wit

  2. Today I took a few minutes to try a few tasks with the bushcraft knife I commissioned from GT a few weeks ago. I didn't put it through brutal tasks, but did try some basic ones that I expect a knife to do if I'm going to carry it. First, the knife is made from 1095 steel that my calipers measure as 0.155 inches thick. Blade length is approximately 5 inches and OAL is about 10.5 inches. The scales are mesquite (I'm sure GT will correct me if I am wrong) and I asked him to include jimping on the top of the blade as well as the extension beyond the handle. The knife came with a nice sha

  4. The pros are still performing the autopsy, but someone on TGO already knows the cause of death. Stop the presses! ELvis was a fat druggie, but I still appreciate the music and the talent. It's easy to separate the two. Great artist. R.I.P. Prince!

  5. During the hot months an ice cream truck comes down our street three or four times a week on a special run for an autistic child.  Knowing the mission, it's sweet music to all the neighbors' ears.

  6. There are men left, you are just looking in the wrong place. I served side by side with many of them in the Marines Corps. They exist in all branches of the military, and still exist in the blue collar world of manual labor, both skilled and unskilled. Though the numbers dwindle, the men are still out there. As for the hero above, I had heard his story before and all I can say is that some men just refuse to die. Sent from behind the anvil

Just to brighten up your Friday afternoon, it's really encouraging to see a judge with some empathy.  I appreciated his comments about how "sometimes they lose their way", but still recognizes their humanity:   http://www.abajournal.com/news/article/concerned_about_veteran_with_ptsd_judge_orders_him_to_jail_and_serves_the_t

  11. J frame (or LCP) + belly band = :up: As crazy as it may sound, a belly band has become my favorite method 90% of the time. I can easily conceal anything from a small 380 to a G19 in as little as gym shorts and a T-shirt. Even with jeans, my gun is independant from my pants/belt, so there is no sagging or printing. It took a little while to get used to, but I like it now. I have some really nice holsters, but they don't get as much use. I carry at about 4:00 position and low on the hips. A j frame or something like an LCP would be completly invisible in a belly band with a tux, and it would

  13. so i got a text message from his phone number today - said its his wife, and that brad is in the hospital, she said give her my last name and she would check if it was shipped or in pending work.  i don't know if hes playing some kinda game, but i sent a certified letter demanding my property back with a box with prepaid postage, and i am calling around for an attorney around knoxville to handle a small claims case for me.  I also went through my phone archive and retrieved the recording of the phone call - where he told me the what it would cost, i agreed, he told me where to se

  15. I know some people hate 'em...but in my experience they don't understand them and therefore wear them wrong. I'm talking about a bellyband holster.   They suck as far as reholstering as they require 2 hands to do so safely. And they should be worn at, or below, the beltline...not way above it as so many interweb photos demonstrate.   I am on my 3rd or 4th bellyband and wear one in nonpermissive environments daily, have for years.   Just a suggestion for your consideration.   Congratulations and Best wishes to your son!       Here's a vid with Lenn

  29. Don't worry everyone, soon paper currency will be a thing of the past. Electronic currency will be the way of the future, makes it easier to track and that way you'll be able to only use your allotment. Easier for them to get ahold of it to. Heck, look at Japan and some countries in Europe, already setting limits on withdrawals. Mr. DJT has even suggest scalping a percentage of everyone's accounts to help with the country's debt. No sir, I don't like it. Reminds of the old saying, going to something or other in a hand basket..... And yes, Lincoln was a Republican, the first one in fact.

  35.   I did that 20 plus years ago.  I have enough land that I don't see another home from mine and the occasional gun fire is normal.  The bad news is that low bass thump travels well through the hollows and it's becoming way too frequent these days.  Usually 2 Cmag dumps on full auto will shut it up for a while. :eek:

  36. we are in need for more men like this.  take a look around your local college and you will cry.  there are no more men to be found.  we have made a generation of babies where words written in chalk on a side walk puts them into crying laying down fear.

  37. See. I don't think it is a good thing to avoid green beans, Brussels sprouts, and asparagus just because they have some carbs. As stated, I'm focusing on quality, healthy food and keeping my calorie count under a certain amount. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  44. I don't see why you couldn't carry.  Are the tour bus folks running your carry on bags and you through metal detectors and X Ray machines?  If they are not doing that, I don't see how they would know just like any other place.

  46.     The term itself aside, ATF considers any purchase from FFL where a person gives you the money up front to buy it for him illegal, whether that person can legally own firearms or not.   See 4473 for specific example between legal "gift" and illegal purchase for someone else.   Note that this recently went all the way to SCOTUS at least regarding lying on the 4473 (the cop who bought a firearm for his brother in another state, even though it was transferred in that other state through a FFL).   - OS

  48. I'm running a PSA build and I came in under $600 less sights and including two mags. This was a straight pistol build which could have been sbr'd for the same price. I have had no issue with it. I have upgraded it since the initial build with some accessories. It was a Colt pattern build.
