  1. Mandatory bragging thread. Got mine already, this is a fantastic knife, perfectly balanced, nice and heavy. Holster looks like it was machine produced as well, you would have a hard time finding a better quality knife than this. Thanks!

  2. Hey all! Been quite some time since I've dropped by TGO. I hope everyone is doing well! I've been busy over the past year or two. I ended up getting married and my wife and I are getting ready to welcome our baby boy into the world any day now (due date December 12th). On the firearm side of things, my collection is pretty thin. I do EDC is a Springfield XDS 45 these days, although I'm thinking about switching to one of the (many) compact 9mm options. In any case, before things get any crazier for me I wanted to drop by TGO to say Hello and wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Jeff

  3. After many many many months of waiting, the ATF finally approved my Form 4 and mailed it to the one and only Michael Dresner of Law Enforcement Sales. I purchased it from Silencer Shop on March 1st, ATF cashed the check on April 11th, then approved my Form 4 on November 21st. The form arrived to Michael in the mail on December 3rd. So far I'm really liking it. Once I do some more shooting and testing with it to confirm reliability, this suppressed 300 blackout will become my main home defense gun. The suppressor is quite at home on my 300 blackout SBR as well as my 10/22. I put up a quick video with it on my YouTube channel:

  6. I solved that problem 20+ years ago, never sell, never trade away. Just add, add some more, add more.............Seriously, when I was in the gun biz, many of men said they wished that had something back, so I listened, and still have all of my early guns, my guns from 10 years ago, and the past.

  7. They don't need to go to prison, they need to pick up a shovel and wheel barrow. Then when they're done with that, they need pick up a hammer and nails. Then when they're done with that, they need to pick up a paint brush. Depending on how all that goes, maybe we'll see about prison. Given the situation, I'd bet the parents weren't particularly involved before so getting them involved now seems a bit late.

  9. I hunted until 1pm today. If I could eat fresh tracks I'd be in good shape. I'm having a time figuring out these deer.....there are fresh tracks every morning and lots of them. Deer are moving in this area I'm hunting and it's the only area I'm seeing fresh sign. There was only one other hunter in there today and rode in on a 4 wheeler before daylight. I walked down the road about 9am and there were tracks inside the 4 wheeler tracks. I heard them leave about 10:30. I'd guess 3 or 4 does moving around. I've got a plan for in the morning....EARLY. Maybe I'll score a doe for the freezer!

  10. As a father of 4 sons, two on the cusp of being teenagers, I cannot imagine what the family is going through, the parents, the kids and etc. On the other hand, the pain, the loss, that the innocent people of Gatlinburg have went through and the loss for ever. Sad and tough situation all around.

  13. KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Officials said two juveniles are responsible for the devastating Sevier County wildfires. At a 3 p.m. news conference Wednesday, authorities told media outlets that two juveniles have been charged with aggravated arson for their roles in allegedly starting wildfires. The two minors were taken into custody Wednesday morning after a petition was filed in juvenile court charging them with aggravated arson. They are currently being held at the Sevier County Juvenile Detention Center. The District Attorney said the juveniles are not from Sevier County, but are residents of Tennessee. Officials say, "everything is on the table," and said the two juveniles could be facing more charges or could be tried as adults. http://www.local8now.com/content/news/Officials-Two-juveniles-charged-for-starting-Sevier-Co-wildfires-405283765.html

  16. Depending on the age and the level of intent or reckless that can be proven; there probably will be. But since they have charges to hold them on and keep them away from each other; there is no rush to do so until the investigation is complete. As I said above; there isn’t much in that story. This could be anything from 8 year olds playing with matches, to 16 year olds intentionally setting a fire. As soon as the local gossip gets going we will know their ages and probably their criminal records; if they have any.

  17. That would be quite fitting considering the damage caused. Unless they're beyond rehabilitation, long prison terms will just make them lifetime criminals. I can't see any reason to try them as adults...I've not a fan of that practice save a case by case basis when per-meditated murder/attempted murder is involved. I'm interested to learn if these two were out to bring as much mayhem as possible, or two dumb kids who let a fire get out of control with the weather causing the rest. Not excusing anything, but I find it hard to believe that to under 18 teens could have intended the devastation caused.

  19. I've never seen anything like this before. There wasn't many people at this local auction, and prices for guns and knives were at near giveaway levels, so, being a good TGO member, I tried to do my part. I scored an 1894 Marlin in 38-40, a Colt DA 38, A Colt Bisley in 45 Colt, a Remington New Navy Cartridge Conversion with perfect ivory grips, a Cattaraugus pocket knife, and a Winchester pocket knife. Not pictured is a 1917 Commercial Smith and Wesson my father confiscated from me. I guess a blind hog finds an acorn once in a while.

  20. I find it odd that non of the news coverage is mentioning the aircraft brought in to fight the blaze other than the helicopters. We parked between a pair of awesome looking tankers at the Tri-cities FBO on the first. The pilots indicated they were on contract with the Forest Service and had flown in from Montana.

It's good ta know that a few of them survived in tact... It's also great to know that a brother "true believer" is the keeper of this great old tool of destruction... admirin leroy

  22. That is kind of what I like about the system that Mississippi has in place. You have always been able to carry a loaded firearm in your car there without any sort of license and somewhat open carry depending on opinion. Now you can open carry for free, conceal carry in a belt holster for free without a license, carry on a regular license (with restrictions), or carry on an enhanced licence (training required just like TN's permit) and carry virtually anywhere, including K-12 schools, legally. I believe you are limited from carrying in courtrooms during court and police stations with an enhanced license. No it's not a perfect system but the system helps the vast majority of good guys carrying and in my opinion is better than what we have in TN. In an ideal world we would be able to own Class 3 firearms without a tax stamp, mail order firearms just like it was up until the late 60's, and be able to carry in all 50 states anywhere legally without any sort of license or restrictions. That's just not going to happen unfortunately and we have to make the best of it if reasonable politicians are willing to work with 2nd Amend groups and help cut restrictions.

  25. Well, the barrel is correctly marked, the three serial numbers match, and all the assembly number I can find also match. It obviously has very little finish left, with some pitting on the exterior. The inside of the barrel and cylinder are in pretty good shape. The cylinder is a bit loose. Best of all, with a 208 grain .454 lead bullet on top of 5 grains of Bullseye, it'll drill the bullseye out of a target! So it doesn't have much in the condition department, but as far as I cal tell, it's original. Thanks for the help.

  26. Well the CEO is a last ditch effort. She can escalate you to HER direct supervisor. If you don't want to do more calls, do the letter I mentioned and Facebook if you do it. I did do a quick web search for stores that have that gun in stock. I did not see it at any of the big name places I looked. Kinda odd. maybe they are having more than just issues with this stock. As in supply chain and manufacturing issues. If it goes on, I would just press them to buy the gun back from you at purchase price. Not the best outcome, but gets you out from under this with no monetary loss.

  29. I tried a few recipes but haven't locked in on any as I don't have a dedicated can to keep trying to get one that works right with my setup, 10.5" and 16" barrels, but I do have few in a pdf I put together for the 300Blk. Here are a couple to try, work it down of course. 10.0gr of 2400 with a 220 SMK at 2.260 OAL 9.3gr of 4227 with a 220 SMK at 2.100 OAL 9.5 of 4227 with 208 Amax at 2.095 OAL

  34. Current production is fine. I remember not too terribly long ago Palmetto had complete uppers for something like 399 with FN barrels. Those are long gone. But even finding a stripped upper looks like its a scavenger hunt these days. I just hate that flat tops have become so popular that places aren't even carrying the older style stuff.

  37. The first year of the State CCW Permit you were also required to be bonded ,and that ran a hundred dollars extra. A lot of people had the Sheriff Permits at no cost but it was usually political terms to get and keep one as in working on their election campaign when needed or who you knew and they were honored in most other States as well.

  41. What Chuck said here is the genuine truth of the matter about "...the state regulating the wearing of arms with an eye toward keeping the peace..."... I think it is hilarious that the "anti second amendment" crowd convienently overlooks this as they lead the "children" around with their demigoguery... Black folks should be the stauchest supporters of "Constitutional Carry" and the "Right to Keep and Bear Arms" everywhere... Sadly, lots of 'em are not.... wonderin leroy

  42. Aging venison is just like aging beef, enzymes break down the fibers and tenderize the meat a bit. Of course you have to keep the meat clean from field dress to table, no ruptured guts or bladder, dirt hair etc. I age mine for at the minimum 4 days at 36 deg, from 34-38 is where you want it, above 40 and you may start growing bacteria. Its best if left hide-on in a walk-in cooler, but I gutted a fridge and quarter the carcass, no hide, and hang in there. The I debone and process the cuts to what ever I want, mostly some steaks and grind the rest. If using soon, you can mix your fat into the grind, pork or beef, then freeze. If not using for a few months, I mix the fat upon use. I vacuum seal mine, it lasts at least 5 years, my longest in a deep freezer, but I have used saran wrap then freezer paper and it last at least 2 years in a deep freezer. In a normal freezer it may last less, but I only keep venison there for a few weeks at time.

  44. First of all, glad to have another shooting enthusiast in Tennessee. My perception is TN is moving toward more firearm freedom but is not yet where we would like it. As a suggestion, contact your state senator and representative and share your information that civilized Pennsylvania allows more freedom than TN. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  46. I guess I don't get it. But then I didn't get it when I offered to buy it if you listed it in the Classifieds as is nearly a year ago. Ha! <insert humor icon here> Respectfully, you have wasted a year of your life waiting for a response. It's time to fix the gun and move on. Here's a stock that looks better than the factory wood stock, is adjustable, and will have you shooting again in a week or so. It's $59 plus shipping. You might want to call first to double check the fit. I don't think the forend will fit, but the buttstock should, and that's all you need. http://www.midwayusa.com/product/543899/advanced-technology-shotforce-6-position-collapsible-buttstock-with-pistol-grip-and-forend-rossi-shotguns-and-rifles-polymer-black https://www.atigunstocks.com/rifles/rossi/stocks/shotforce-rossi-stock
