  2. Absolutely not. Boats lose value over time. Can you say that about guns? If you can't afford to pay for the boat you'd be ill advised to trade your guns for it.

  4. I finally took the time and ordered a belt from Beltman. All I can say is why did it take me this long? I thought I had a decent belt for carrying. Oh my what a difference. The belt is fantastic but the customer service was impeccable as well. David called the next morning after I ordered the night before to verify the length etc. Was shipped out that day. I can't say enough good about the belt and my experience.

  5. If you have a significant collection with several of the same model, do it. If you have two guns to your name, no way. Some guns may appreciate in value, but many won't. The bottom line is if you will use the boat more than the guns collecting dust in your safe, go for it. Turn something you don't use into something that you will enjoy.

  6. i1afli, I believe you understand. I have multiple copies of the same brand/style of guns. I was kind of collecting them to pass along to my grand-kids, but some of them have a pretty good collection going. Like my wife said when she found out I had 3 of a particular rifle, she said " how many of those does 1 man need", my reply was as many as I want. Then it gets me to thinking, some of those guns haven't seen the light of day in a few years. Red333, I appreciate your comments, but I quit fishing on the bank about 50 years ago. I can't fish from the bank. I thought bust out another thousand is what BOAT stood for. Although I have had many boats and never busted out a thousand for anything. Thanks guys

  7. I think that’s a question only you can answer. What would you get more enjoyment out of? Boats and guns do seem to share one similarity in that neither gets used as much as folks think they will when they get them and tend to spend a lot of time gathering dust.

  8. Where I eat lunch most every day I am in town, (Jackson, Bar-b-Que+meat and three) there are State Police officers, Sheriff's Department, JPD and a lot of times the whole dang Marshal's group in there. Several open carriers on any given day, I always carry concealed but will take my jacket off and hang it on the chair. None of them have ever looked up from their plates.

  9. Another one I never got around to shooting and have decided to try and move on to a new home. Wilson Combat Brigadier Tactical with action tune and magazine guide. Original owner traded back in at our local shop and I picked it up from there. I've not shot this one and can not say that it hasn't been shot but if it has it wasn't very much. Two of the three magazines don't even show any signs of being inserted into the gun. Spring and lanyard loop included with the Beretta blue box. No signs of wear, just as beautiful looking gun. Action is silky smooth as you would imagine, these have some of the best DA/SA triggers out there. Originally sticker was $1380 with the extras. Feel free to PM with any questions. $1150 Will consider trades but only for greater value than my cash price, multiple guns are fine. Prefer handguns but will consider others if the value is there.

  10. Seriously, getting rid of something you don’t use in favor of something you would use makes sense.

  11. The question doesn’t seem to be whether he’s better off with guns or a boat but rather how best to pay for the boat. Best case would be to pay cash for the boat, but if that’s not an option then I’d trade guns that would otherwise be collecting dust before I’d take out a loan to buy the boat.

  12. For some reason this reminded me of a story a good old boy from VA told me 15 or so years ago. He said he hunted fish. I said how do you do that. He said it takes a 12g and a loaf of bread. You climbs into a tree that over hangs the lake, breaks up the bread and throws it down into the lake. Waits for a few minutes then shoot both barrels into the lake, climbs down and starts collecting your catch as they float to the surface. Same guy had raccoon hides nailed to his shed wall in a V formation like they were flying.

  14. It is March 10th, if you have signed up on the Eventrbight page in the link we have a count. Gov. threw a kink in when he proffered his bill, still need to show up, meeting takes place in the Capital, no guns allowed. If you can access after the speakers you can carry concealed in Cordell Hull.

  17. I have one of the older Ruger 40 caliber carbines. It is stock and does not have all the furniture these have. I purchased it from a Sherriff deputy who had a massive heart attack, then had to sell it. Back then the Rutherford Sherriff Dept carried these and Ruger 40 caliber pistols. Also when they first came out they were for law enforcement only, so I was told. I have had the one I got for 20 years or so. I traded a Ruger Camp Carbine 9 MM for this one because I wanted more power also, and yes, they are a hoot to shoot but ammo is expensive if you don't reload. I have it loaded with an extra magazine and ready to go if I should need it in a hurry and I can get to it. I also have a Ruger Mini 14, and Mossberg 12 Ga, at the ready. I feel the Ga is number 1 choice for serious in house work should I be forced to use it. I had a 20 Ga but gave it to my grandson to hunt with. It had both an 18 1/2" and 24" brl.

  18. SAIGON, South Vietnam, March 7 — The United States continued widespread bombing raids today, sending more than 1,000 planes into action against enemy forces In Laos and Cambodia. Some of the raids were in support of two South Vietnamese operations in Cambodia. The first operation is a new move by 2,000 men near Kompong Trabek, along Route 1, in eastern Cambodia west of Saigon. The drive was directed against what were described as North Vietnamese and Vietcong sanctuaries. The second operation is the larger, continuing one by the South Vietnamese in the Chup Plantation‐Snoul area along Route 7 near the Fishhook area northwest of Saigon. American planes also carried out heavy air strikes around Tchepone, a major North Vietnamese supply shipment point about 25 miles inside Laos on the Ho Chi Minh Trail. South Vietnamese forces captured the town this weekend. [The South Vietnamese troops at Tchepone were reported to be consolidating their positions in anticipation of a possible enemy counterattack from the north.] Some Planes Held Back There are 1,200 to 1,500 American planes available for use in South Vietnam, Some were held in reserve, apparently for use against surface‐toair missile sites in North Vietnam should they threaten United States bombers attacking targets along the border. The planes also flew in support of Laotian Government troops fighting in northern Laos. The raids were mounted from at least four bases in Thailand, half a dozen bases in South Vietnam and frdm carriers of the Seventh Fleet in the Gulf of Tonkin.

  22. Yep and what might that be?? Only they know because we are too ignorant to understand it. The way I read the 2nd amendment it says I, we have the right to own, carry, use arms and the associated items like ammo, magazines, etc. and it shall not be infringed. It doesn't say that the state of Fed gov't will send us thru a class and take our money so we can have what the 2nd says we already should have. I believe Swang said it best, his father taught him gun safety. Kind of like we need to teach our children about history, the Bible and other things and not leave it to the government. Teach them good work ethics, they learn it from watching Mom & Dad work everyday.

  26. All Model 37s were aluminum alloy frames. S&W has never made any guns out of magnesium. If, by some odd chance, it is one of the very early alloy cylinders, I strongly suggest you don't shoot it. They went to a steel cylinder for a reason. however, that would add considerably to its value and collectability. Value will depend on a lot of factors. Barrel length, round or square butt, finish, box and papers? of course condition is everything. Pictures would be most helpful. Best I can say is about $250-300 on the bottom to around $600 for a really nice one.

  27. I’ve bought a few things from these Powell auctions and got some decent deals. And you’re right about the descriptions as they typically make absolutely no effort to describe these. My impression is that modern black guns seem to go too high but deals can be found on vintage guns.

  29. That’s not her schtick at all. She’s actually a pretty hard nosed prosecutor that a lot of you law & order folks would like on any other day. But what she really is more than that, is a hard line statist. She has way more faith in government bureaucrats like herself running people’s lives than respecting their liberty to run their own lives as they see fit.

  30. Cant believe this is still here! Hard to find locally!  Not my gun but dont let the light weight of it scare you off it. If I had the $ I would buy it my self. If you do buy it. My recommendation is run this ammo thru it for PD  http://www.rbcd.net/Products/Personal%5FDefense/     in 44 spl. Should tame that recoil and still give you excellent results!
