  1. You list a gun in the classifieds here and the first person to respond has over ten positive feedback ratings and zero negative. I realized this yesterday. I posted a pistol for sale. Sure enough, the first respondant had 12 positive feedbacks. I knew right away this was going to be easy to close the deal. Every now and again I list something on Craigslist, knowing that actually finding a buyer who will show up with money on time is about a 50% chance. These thoughts came to me yesterday and it seemed appropriate to make them public. Thanks TGO.

  3. Selling my excellent condition M9A3. I’m just thinning the herd. This pistol has been great, and I used it in IDPA competitions. It is the G model (decocker only). It comes with multiple magazines, all the original equipment, and a few mag holders as well (not pictured).

  4. They asked me if I own guns. I said yes. They asked if I had a safe for them. I said yes. That was the end of it for me. They never asked again or brought it up. Our house has been closed for a few years now. We adopted 3 out of foster care and had a bio child so we are done. LOL

  5. I built a new 1900 sq ft house two years ago. Builder figured it at $250,000. Ended up costing $310,000. I would have been in way too much but for the fact it was on the lake and the lot has appreciated enough to make up for what I lost on the house. I love the house but if I were doing it over, I would have sold the lot and bought an existing home on the lake. Building is a losing proposition.

  7. Decided I'd take out the Ruger .22lr this evening, like usual 20min at the spot and this was the first to show. Put that 40gr solid through the ear and he took a dirt nap. Its always nice to change it up every once in awhile. But for under 50 yards a .22 will do the job with the right shot placement.

  8. I’m selling my gorgeous CMP M1 Garand. I have the Rifle, Sling, bayonet, and a few bandoliers of Ammo. Asking $1500. I honestly bought it to shoot long range competitions, but have since focused solely on sporting clays. Not trades, just looking for the right collector.

  10. I work for a local community bank and am seeing the same lumber shortages and price increases. A lot of homes are coming back short on the appraisal. Normally a home will get close to the build price (within reason) because they factor in comps along with the fact that someone (you) are willing to pay for the house as long as the builder is quoting a reasonable price per sq foot. Lately I’ve seen several that have not come close to the build price due to the increase in building material and the fact that the market or comps haven’t absorbed those prices yet. As others hav

  14. The Cali bashing always cracks me up. We need @MacGyver to remind everyone they are the worlds 4th largest economy and grow a huge amount of our produce. If they go down, I cannot imagine it would be good for the rest of us. Also, CA has a ton of Conservatives. 4.5 million voted for Trump in 2016. There are a lot of good people in the state and Fox news only shows the most bizarre, otherwise it wouldn't be news.

  17. I used to be an electrician working on custom homes. The main reason it costs more is you will pick out materials that will last 20-50 years where as “builder grade” materials that go into “spec homes” are basically as cheap as you can get and it still look good to sell. Example, 15-25 year shingles instead of 45-50 year ones, cheapest hardwood that’s still hardwood instead of what you really want, off the shelf cabinets for $5-10k vs $40-50k+ for full custom cabinets, cheap carpet that looks 20 years old in 3 years, vinyl flooring instead of tile in laundry room, the most basic cera

  19. Weaver D6 scope with ring mounts for grooved receiver. .22 rifles with scopes like this have accounted for lots of tree rats since the 1960s. This one came on an older .22 I recently purchased; I needed the rifle desperately but don't need the scope. Great for beginning shooters or for someone wanting a vintage scope for an older rifle. One scratch on the tube as shown; there's also a gouge on the side of the eyepiece. Lenses appear unscratched. $25 face to face in Nashville or I'll reluctantly ship by USPS for added shipping costs. Thanks for looking, Whisper

  20. While on the road in Alabama, I stopped in at Hoover Tactical... I had just started my research into the world of semi auto .308 rifles, so was just looking. Ended up with walking out with an HK91 When I saw it, I assumed it was a PTR91 or Century C308; both of which I've handled at Bud's and wasn't a fan. Salesman says, "it's a real one." "A real one what?" "Not a clone or kit, it's nice, here, check it out." I agonized over the decision and justified through, "they ain't making them anymore, they are desirable, it should appreciate, and I know a guy who wou

  23. One thing I have learned from having stuff done for the house AND having worked for a general contractor is that you need to be ultra specific on all details IN WRITING. Stuff like I said I wanted all screws in the deck we built... but I didn't get it in writing, so I ended up with 1/3 screws and 2/3 nails. Do you want the tile in the entry way the same height as the laminate in the living room? Get it in writing or they will take the cheapest and easiest way out. If it is not in writing, some builders will change order (extra fee for changes) you to death on every little thing. A

  24. Look for a used Savage 110 with a laminate stock and accutrigger, then make sure the barrel is floated. I'm not totally positive that one is available in .30-06 with laminate, but I'd rule that out before looking elsewhere. Failing that, I'd pick another 110 with accutrigger.

  25. If I were to consider a new bolt action it would be a Savage. They are well known for accuracy at a nice price. Several years ago I shot someone’s else’s Savage .30-06 using my surplus Greek HXP M2 ball ammo exactly three times at 100 yards. Two of the holes were touching, the other close enough to call it well under one MOA.

Right now is literally the worst time to build ever....OSB, 2x4's, 2x6's, deck boards...almost everything has doubled or worse. My builder said his average cost to build a 400,000 house is over $30,000 more then it was last year....when good deck boards are only $3 less than TREX you know things have gotten stupid. One of my new neighbors that bought land in my subdivision said she can't find a contractor that can quote her 2800sq ft for less t

  29. The market is crazy now and I'm hearing about labor and material shortages on new construction. Unless I knew the builder personally, I'd be a bit nervous these days trying to get something built. As a Realtor selling existing homes It's always a race now to get a Buyer to decide quickly and put in a good solid offer before the 5 other people looking at the same home get there first. And this is little old Cookeville!! And Prices? Seems we will be catching up to Nashville or Knoxville in a couple of years if this pace keeps up. Somethings gotta give I'm thinking.

  30. A good skill to learn indeed! An excerpt from a review of the classic Apocolyptic/Dystopian novel "Earth Abides" by George R. Stewart New lives are born into the clan, and they learn to navigate, not by street signs, but by waterways, bridges, and church spires. Ish aspires to preserve civilization’s learning and culture for the coming generations. But reality seeps in – first gradually, then abruptly as his bright and curious son Joey dies in a rebound epidemic. Ish turns to the surviving children and shows them how to start a fire without matches and to fashion a bow and arrow – he

  33. Maybe that's how I should have put it. I have conservative family that lives in the North, and they know tons, and tons of conservatives the area. I also know some conservatives in Los Angeles and they know of tons of people that are conservative in that county, and around the rest of the state. Unfortunately they are dominated by the left, election after election.

  36. Just in time for sporting clays weather and dove season. For sale is a Benelli Ethos 12 ga 28” barrel nickel receiver. This is a beautiful firearm and shoots and handles exceptionally well. Less than 200 rounds through this gun and comes with all the chokes, case, shims, and original box. I bought this in 20 ga and 12 ga and have decided to keep the 20 ga as it it lighter on my shoulder after an injury. It has one small nick as shown in the pictures on the forearm, otherwise there is not a scratch on it. Asking $1500 for this almost new $1999 shotgun.

  42. I haven’t been in the construction business since 2010. But things haven’t changed only prices gone up. Unfortunately can’t help with the process with a general contractor (GC). To note, if you build a $250k house on a lot you paid $50k for. The home will appraise for $250k maybe just a touch more if it’s in a good neighborhood, it’s just the way it is. I don’t think it’s right, but it is how it is. Also, if you are at all interested in integrated smart home, get a guy out there around the same time you have your security system and electricians out there right after it’s framed, mu

  43. I remember making aluminum foil boats with a friend and filling them with lighter fluid. We would stick a wood match in and light it so it would catch the fluid on fire that soaked into the stick. THEN we decided that was lame since it was so hard to get it to light. We proceeded to borrow his dad's gas can and use that instead. When we scurried away there was a skim of burning gas floating down the creek for a long ways. lol My Dad tells the story of using a pound of black powder in some old car part to make a bomb. Said it made a crater in the pasture field. Knowing Dad's childhood adve

  44. My boyhood friend and I were, shall we say somewhat troublesome. We looked up the recipe for black powder. Talked his mom into a trip to Rexall drug where we bought saltpeter and sulfur. Used some charcoal and brewed up a batch of credible black powder. Then we took a can of Mountain Dew (before the era of poptops) punched a hole in the center of the top and drained out the soda. Let it dry and filled it with our homebrew powder. Used a sparkler for the fuse, lit it and watched. It sputtered for a bit and then the powder really caught fire. The can went about 20 feet high and exploded. We were

  45. I think boys and firecracker demolitions was a rite of passage for most of older guys. lol I've done my share of blowing up models with them as well. Used to like weighting the nose down with modeling clay, so it would look like flying when I tied a string to it and twirled it around. Then of course had to put the firecrackers or the occasional M80 on them. Remember the old wooden gliders we used to get for a nickel and then a dime? Center the M80 them and launch them off into oblivion. lol Then there's the story I've told before...mudball hand grenades and firecrackers stuck

He did a great job they are great, fit and finish is really good, he nailed the designs I asked for. One is a Rodisan style, the other is a Bruce Nelson Combat style, both fit a 1.5" belt and hold the gun snugly, I can't wait to get them broken in. Thanks 1911alltheway you did a great job on making these for me.

  48. Like many of us, I have several 22s. Rifles and pistols. Though pistols are my favorite, I do have 2 rifles that I'll never let go of. A Winchester 75 that was my Dad's. I must have been 7 or 8 when he got it. Paid a tremendous amount of money for it...125 dollars and that included the Unertl scope on it. lol I remember it well. We were living with my grandparents at the time, and they gave him a great deal of hell over spending that kind of money on a gun. That should have been about 1962 or thereabouts. The other is a Ruger 10/22 I got from one of our good guys here...DolomiteSupr

Then again, this was as I said long time ago, and Union County, to boot. Got the impression that as long as they didn't think we'd eat him, it was better than anything they could provide. - OS
