  4. Looking at the Colt website it was made in 1918. The brown spots on the front of the gun appear to be something like shellac and not rust.

  7. Back in October I once again got an 03FFL. Aside from a lack of funds, I really don't have anything in the must have bucket list column. Living dangerously, Iv been known to browse the GB C&R listings on occasion (sorta like having unprotected sex). Well, who can resist the dream world of a Luger holding at $500? I clicked on it. Now every one knows that Luger will close at something that wont be anywhere near the 5 bones it had 5 days out from the gavel. But I clicked on it anyway. Here is the specimen in question.... This particular Luger is a 1906 model tha

  8. I shoot all over the Southeast, but I run the local ARA matches at Strategic Edge in Chapel Hill. I shoot at Chattanooga Rifle Club and quite a few other places within a 4 hour drive of Nashville. I have a couple of extra competition guns if you ever want to give it a try. All I ask is that you pay for the ammo as it isn't cheap.

  9. I got a Thrunite Ti3 with an Amazon gift card I got for Christmas. Nice little light, noticeably smaller and brighter than the single AAA light I was carrying. Thanks for the recommendation.

  10. One generally carries a weapon for the safety of themselves and family. Without training you are doing just the opposite plus endangering the public. Carrying a handgun is a huge responsibility that few take seriously enough to take real training. A carry class simply exposes one to applicable laws and is not firearms training. To carry and not train not only is risky to your health but your freedom. Mess up and possibly lose your freedom and spend your life in jail away from your family is not a good outcome.

  16. I have often wanted to try out a F3 Curtiss knife but never got the opportunity. I spent a couple of hours on the phone with Dave and decided to start selling his knives. They are very comparable to Hinderer knives with the exception of using IKBS Ball bearing system which makes them some of the best fastest flipping knives around, i ordered a 4 inch and should have it Saturday, if it is as nice as I expect I see many in my future, I already have Dave building for me a special Custom Smotth Carbon fiber F3, so if any of you want one of his knives, let me know he is a ve

  17. I'm considering, and keep looking at, the Smith 640 Pro. And I need a good bolt action .308. And a Mossberg 590A1 with the 18.5" barrel. And the new Smith Model 66 3". And a good .22 rifle, maybe the Ruger 'Murican. Priority for this year would be the 640 and .308.

  20. I picked up an M&P2.0 for $440 from garbagun a few weeks ago and holy smokes do those changes make a huge difference. There are a few things I was surprised about on it (I'm sure there will be legit online reviews form reputable sources, but here's what I noticed from owning two different model gen 1's and this 2.0 - all in 9mm): when the pistol goes into battery, there is a solid thud. The gun is built properly. Glocks, springfields, M&P gen 1's, they all feel loose compared to the M&P2.0 I mean, it is a solid thud, both from the sound and feel. Factory grips are the

  21. I talked a buddy into getting his first 45 in honor of the 45th president. He ordered a Colt 1911 from Grab-a-Gun, and he will take possession tomorrow (1/20). Now I am little jealous, I am seriously thinking about adding another 45 as well. I may consider a Sig P320 in 45 ACP maybe in the desert color, maybe the full size or Nitron Compact or the Carry. I try to buy at minimum one gun per year, and this is a new year.

  22. New year with new rules! We'll have 5 to 6 stages that will consist of 100 to 120 rounds. New and old shooters are always welcome. 12:30 start time so be there by 12:00 or earlier, hope the see you on the range. Walden Ridge Shooting Range 1862 16th Model Rd Manchester,Tn 37355 Members $10 Nonmember $15 This is an IDPA event so concealment is needed. New shooters (to the sport) do not apply on concealment. You'll need 3 magazines (2 will work), and some good holsters.

  23. Nice set of Troy BUIS, not micros. Has the M4 front sight. Lightly used. The bottom of the rear sight has had some of the anodizing removed from the previous owner. It doesn't affect anything, but just letting you know. Will not split up the pair. $145 shipped. Would trade for 7.62x39 ammo or RS Regulate AK mounts.

  24. Lots of violence, er, I mean 'action' + zombie-type creatures + Milla Jovovich = Heck, yes, I want to see it. Won't pay full theater price but I'd get it on DVD once it is no longer 'new release price'. The movies in the series that I have seen were pretty entertaining and looking at Milla Jovovich even made that kinda dumb movie 'The Fifth Element' (which I did see in a theater and is the first movie I remember seeing her in) watchable.

And I'm sure that the preserve is setup as a nonprofit and will not have an issue getting support as such. Shriners getting drunk? No......hahah How is it any different than using them solely for work or to make you feel better about being alone (companionship).

  33. Selling off one of my most loved, but least used rifles. 1950 vintage, waffletop, 24" barrel, super tight action. Very crisp 3½lb trigger. Pre-microgroove rifling. I fitted the Williams FP tang sight, the flip up barrel sight (not original) is still in place. I'll also include an original rear sight, but it'll require using a lower front. Sometime in the depths of history some utter fourletterword has drilled & tapped the receiver & barrel for scope mounts, hence the price. I'm asking $550 absolutely firm on this. Check around & you'll find identical condition

  36. Not a trade offer per se, and I don't remember the exact pricing, but once I found a Henry AR-7 in I believe the TN Trader. Called them up, they said it was like new, I drove 20 minutes to go buy it. It was + or - $20 from the new price on Bud's if I recall correctly, but worth it to avoid taxes, transfer fee, hassle, etc on a $200 firearm. Showed up cash in hand and fully ready to make a purchase. What I assume were a husband and Wife showed up. Showed me the AR-7 and walked me through all of how it "worked". I liked it but noticed that the buttstock cap, the piece that keeps the whole t

  37. It should not be a crime to have a handgun whether it is concealed or not. Liberty is being defeated by these so called people control laws. Permits imho are a blessing with a fee attached. I'm quite blessed already and will not be seeking any additional ones.

  38. Walking around a Nashville Fairgrounds Show about twelve years ago had a guy walk by with a GI 1911,can spot them at 100 paces. I asked him what he was selling and handed me a correct 1944 Ithaca and said he was wanting to trade even for a Kel-Tec 9mm about $250 then. I had one at home and I said how about we walk over to a dealers table and I give you the cash for one out the door? He said no I just want to trade it for one right now??? I scrambled trying to find a used one quick but seen him walk past me about five minutes later with a Kel-Tec.

  40. I have been laughing for over a minute straight at this sentence! Haha! So perfect! To the OP. My carry gun is my Shield, and it rides in a leather Bianchi model 100. It gets taken out of the holster for the night if the holster has gotten damp with sweat throughout the day. I shoot my carry gun every few weeks and it gets wiped down every time and cleaned as necessary. I don't worry too much the finish of the Shield, though the regular Shield I carred for 3 years before I got this performance center model looked absolutely brand new when I sold it.

  41. ANY 22 can is going to last 5000+ rounds before it starts to really become harmful to your hearing. People are not going to just throw away a silencer they filled out a 4473 to buy. No different than throwing away a gun no longer wanted. People will sell them to fund a better one spurring a large secondary market of used silencers. Up until now it was just not worth it to buy a used silencer after the cost and wait but if it could be sold instantly there will be a used silencer market, especially during the shortage of supply. It looks like that 30 caliber silencer is aluminum or exc
