    That's what I was thinking as well. 30 years or so ago when I played a lot, I had a Peavey Stereo Chorus, which was a pretty nice amp then. It doesn't work so well now. I went last night to look at amps. I was going to buy two; a cheap practice amp he could take with him to college, and a nicer one for home. The Fender Champion 20 I decided to get for him impressed me enough that I just bought two of them. It is much better than the old Peavey was when it worked as it should, and was less than $90 new! If we get serious about it, I can always get a nicer amp, but I've been out of it so long I didn't know much about them, and the little Fender entertains me well so far. They've come a long way in amplifiers it seems. I bought his Stratocaster on ebay. I'm sure excited for it to get here so I can try it out before wrapping it for Christmas! My younger son got a Taylor Big Baby for his birthday in September, and he seems to be learning quickly. This made his older brother want to learn as well. In turn, I'm starting to get back into it as well. Fun stuff.

    Thought I needed to post something more like this today. It is easy to get caught up in things and wound up. Sometimes we just need to remember to look up and not miss the scenery In honor of the ETN snow today....2 different looks at Norway

    Will not be in Nashville anytime in the foreseeable future. Appreciate the comments. It's amazing. Regardless how good a deal is, some folks always want more.

    I have seriously begun to question how many of you TGO regulars actually go to the range and shoot your guns, and how many of you just buy them to let them sit at your house. Or worse yet, how many of you just come here to talk about politics because politics and guns see to be inextricably linked to one another. So, let's have some fun related to guns. The next time you are at the range, take a photo of what you're shooting and what your targets look like. It doesn't matter what distance. You don't even have to disclose it. If you want to stand right in front of it and pull the trigger for the tightest group possible, that's fine and you don't have to tell a soul. At least you're out shooting! To start us off: This was a recent outing with one of my old faithfuls. This M&P 40 was produced in 2005 and is one of the earliest production runs of the reborn M&P line from Smith and Wesson. I have owned it since it was new and it has about 10,000 rounds on it now. It has attended six combative pistol classes and has never failed me. Not a single time. Never a failure to feed, fire or eject. I have put a seemingly endless combination of sights on it over the years but it currently wears Ameriglo Hackathorn sights. I haven't even replaced the recoil spring on it yet. No sign that I need to, either. This grouping was shot at about 15 yards and is two magazine's worth (30 rounds) of 40SW.

    I joined when it was 400 initiation and 240 per year. It was steep but I had no place else to shoot rifle so I made it work. I haven't regretted it yet.

    The first time I visited out there I told myself that the cost was a little too steep ($400 to join and $200 per yr. membership). By the time I decided to take the leap, it had gone up to $500 and $300.

    The big private range in Memphis has a similar fee. Everyone says the same thing and after they visit, they start seriously considering paying. Most can afford it and find a way. Some can't. I think you find that it's worth it.

    You say you have Smoke and toxic detectors. You may want to look into a dedicated carbon monoxide detector. Some of the newer dedicated carbon monoxide detectors are designed to be located 5 feet above floor level which is usually lower then where most smoke detectors are mounted. Just a thought.

    I recently took a very long uber ride with a woman that had made 5000 trips. She said she avoids short ones. All your money will be made on the longer trips. Hope that helps and I hope you are breaking UBER policy by carrying.

    Several years ago, I purchased one similar to this: https://www.amazon.com/D-D-Machine-Handgun-pusher-Universal-Standard/dp/B0125M9LRS I used it a couple of times but just got frustrated with it and eventually purchased an MGW sight tool. It's expensive but worth it to me just to have a more stable tool when working with slides and sights.

    Bersaguy, my wife and I talked this over and here is what we came up with. We get wasps and even a rare scorpion inside our house in winter. It's possible she got stung, didn't know what happened herself, and was afraid to go back to that location or even to go into the house. That could also explain why she was off her regular eating for a while. Other than carbon monoxide or a gas leak, we couldn't come up with anything else.

    I am a guitar guy, with an expensive collection. The used American will hold it's value much higher. Used MIM Fenders sell of $300 regularly, with some folks thinking they are $500+. They aren't. The fit and finish of the MIA will be much better than the MIM. The MIA will also use much better components than the MIM. I own a lot of Asian guitars, I think all of them are to be honest. Korea and Indonesia are making some really solid instruments these days, and I have a few Chinese axes that aren't bad either. Something else to take into consideration is an amp. An amp affects the sound as much as the guitar. Cheap amps are cheap. Even more so than a cheap guitar. A Fender Mustang is a good low budget option, because honestly, a good amp costs as much as a good guitar.

    I signed up this afternoon. Watching a show right now. If you have an ad blocker on, it comes up and asks you to turn it off, but if you ignore the message it stays up for the time the commercial would run and then the show starts again, much less annoying than the commercial.

    Update: I have a friend that I called to come and see how she reacted to him. Back when I first got Darby it was a rocky start. I got here on Wednesday and had my heart attack on Saturday and after William got me to the hospital I asked him to take care of Darby and he promised he would. He fed her everyday in the evening. He came over a couple times a day and took her out and played fetch with her and some nights he would take her home with him to spend time with his two small house dogs then bring her back home. She still loves him to this day and when he stops by she won't leave him alone and keeps taking toys to him trying to get him to play with her. She even brings him a dog biscuit that she has hid someplace and gives it to him. Well it took a little of William working with her to coax her out of the Jeep but she finally gave in when he walked over and picked up a couple sticks to play fetch. She seemed to be relaxing while playing so when she got ready to quit he threw a stick and she didn;t go after it so Wiliiam and I came to the front door of the house and she stopped about 20 feet from the door and laid down. William walked out and petted her a few times and walked towards the house and she acted like she was going to come in and got about 10 feet from the door and sat down. William took her short leash out and hooked her up and she followed him in the house. After he left she seemed a lot less stressed but I was not going to let her get back stressed so I took here for a walk out around the yard and instead of coming back in the house I took her for a ride in the Jeep to a park ad we walked around a little, back in the jeep and go gas it up. Then come home like normal. Let her out and she jumped out normal and came in the house and began eating her breakfast I have put down earlier. She is acting like nothing happened. Ate supper and chased squirrels out in the yard and right back in the house. I have no clue what was bothering her this morning at all the way till noon or a little after William left and we went for the ride. William said the wind was howling late last night I didn't hear anything but Darby is really scare of thunder storms but normally when they start I can find her in the bathroom laying on the bathmat. That is her safe place during storms. She picked that when the first thunderstorm happened when she came here to live. Thanks to everyone that offered advice and showed concern. I don't guess we will ever find out what it was but I sure hope it never happens again.
