  4. I bought this when I was deciding if I wanted to go .300 Win Mag or 7mm Mag. I really like my Montana in .300 Win Mag so this one is up for sale. This was the SCI Gun of the Year for 2019. They made up 50 versions of this rifle with the custom floor plate and Vortex Viper HSLR 4-16x50 scope. This is #1 of the group. The rifle is brand new and come with the box. It has never been fired. I do not think I have even loaded it yet. I also two boxes of ammo I will include. The rifle runs $1600 and the scope $900. With the ammo and fees I have over $2600 invested in the rifle. I will let it go for $2000. That is a great deal for someone if they need a nice elk/moose/bear rifle. Here is some sales info: The American West was built upon the backs of men and women venturing into the frontier to pursue dreams of fame, fortune and a better life. Through the years, this adventurous spirit has become a part of the American tradition which is embodied by firearms like the American Legends Rife. Montana created the ALR for the avid hunters who rustle through the mountains, seek their quarry in the field, and share the common bond of appreciation for a handsome hunting rifle. The ALR is perfect for outdoorsmen seeking big game adventures; it is chambered in our most popular long and short action cartridges, and provides consistent, reliable performance through an artfully executed design. Specs: • Chambered in 7MM Remington Magnum • Glass Bedded Turkish Walnut Stock • Three Position Wing Safety • 26” Chrome Moly Matte Blue Finished Barrel • Weight (without scope): 7.5lbs • Only 50 available! • Engraved with SCI logo and numbered 1 to 50. Vortex Viper HS LR Riflescope The Vortex Viper HS LR riflescopes features an advanced optical system highlighted with a 4x zoom range for magnification versatility. A forgiving eye box with increased eye relief gets shooters on target quickly and easily. Built on an ultra-strong 30mm one-piece machined aluminum tube for increased windage and elevation travel and optimal adjustment. Specs: • Exposed target-style elevation turret • Second Focal Plan Dead Hold BDC Reticle • MAG-View Fiber Optic • Weight: 21.4oz

  5. I want to thank all of you for the kind words about Rosie and yes she is a sweetheart for sure. And as far as the spoiling, that began soon as she arrived here. The vet sent 50 lbs of her food with her and I put her a bowl of it down and she went 3 days without touching it so I had my daughter call the breeder about her not eating. The reply was she has always been a nibbler and does not eat a lot at 1 time. Well, she may be a breeder but I have had a Hound most all my life while growing up and Hounds love to eat. I grew up with Beagles and my son and Grandsons all have coon hounds and they all eat. I had a few bags of Pedigree soft packs left from Darby and I thought I would try something. I picked up the bowl of food and mixed 1 pack of the chunky chicken with gravy in it and put it back down and she ate it like she was starved to death. So now she gets a mix each night and she cleans the bowl every night. I also had my daughter go get her a new dog bed at TSC and I put it at the foot of my bed and added a blanket cause I found out that her whole life was spent sleeping on a concrete floor with indoor/outdoor on it in a kennel house and that is hard on an old dogs joints. I made her a bed from a quilt till I could get her the bed and she spent the first night just sleeping on the soft carpet on my floors and the second night I got her to test run the quilt and she would go on it and get back off a couple times and I told her it was up to her where she slept. I woke up for a bathroom trip about 3 AM and she was asleep on the quilt bed......LOL. When her new bed arrived it was bright white lined and she would not go near it. I decided to put the brown blanket on it and put a Milkbone snack in the bed and about 10 minutes later the snack was gone and she realized how good the bed felt I guess cause as you can tell by the pictures below she loves the bed. So for those of you said it's time to spoil her, I think I have already done that....LOL. I also now have a fenced yard to keep other dogs away from her that run loose in the neighborhood.

  10. Potential trade Plus cash: CZ shadow, CZ Bren 2, Dan Wesson 1911, Barrett Fieldcraft 270 or 308. This is a mint Puritan AR upper in 7.62x39 made by Patriot Ordnance Factory (POF) who makes high end ARs. Please see detailed YouTube review below and you will like it. I run about 200 rounds of all kinds of steel or brass ammo through it , not a single issue, extremely clean bolt carrier as no gas is diverted back to the chamber. Bolt carrier is Nickel-Boron Coated, and smooth. It is very accurate even with notorious AK round. With Federal Powershok I got 0.41 MOA, With Russian Golden Tiger I got 1.06 MOA. Way better than a AK in terms of accuracy. I bought this 7.62x39 caliber to hunt hogs in Texas, but end up moving in Tennessee with no use for it. it is compatible to any AR 15 lower. Bought it for $1099 new and is asking $780, I will throw in 3 new steel magazines. The rings, scope and lower are not included. cash deal around Cool Springs area.

  16. I'm still buying components, but only the ones at a somewhat reasonable price. The problem with selling right now, is that you can't replace what you sell at the price you purchased those components for, so you have to consider the higher replacement costs. I don't sell reloads, but have had a friend or two over to reload components I've sold them. And only do that when I know it's for their personal use. I seen this coming, well before Obama, and stocked up and upgraded my reloading equipment. I also got into casting my own, and searched for ways to make my own powder and primer compounds. I'll probably never need to go that far mind you, but it never hurts to have the information and skill set, just in case.

  18. The co-ordinated efforts at supressing some information while promoting others that has been taking place in the media should scare the bejeezuz out of everyone. Used to be the Wash Post and WSJ were a little left-leaning, while other outlets had a conservative bent. You had some balance. They are all now in lock-step with a given agenda. Dissenting viewpoints are actively filtered/removed and demonetized (OAN kicked off utube). The power google holds with their ad revenue can and is being weilded ccoercively. Their ability to (de)rank and promote viewpoints has been proven time and time again. Pravda wasn't nearly as powerful... Forget who, but know the quote you're referring to. What bothers me more than the manipulation of conclusions from the data, is the massaging of the data itself. Two very recent events (Election and KungFlu) and one long ranging one ('climate change') are very serious topics marred by illegitimate data. If you can't count on the counting (see what I did there? ), you can't make any conclusions! The vote counts are tainted and in serious question in some cases, so we dunno who's Pres., Covid numbers aren't just being fudged, and the raw instrument readings being used to make graphs that prove our planet is warming up, were actually 'adjusted' by the scientists doing the recording. I'm no scientist, but if you don't have good data, you're not going to get the right answers. The lack of truth in our society is underlying many of our ills. Why society has reached that point I'll leave for another day!

  19. Don't see this on MSM anywhere, and online links to the data are being memory holed. All hail benevolent government!!! "According to this graph constructed using data provided by the CDC from the last 6 years, total deaths have remained relatively constant and increases can be explained by various factors such as a larger population. The spikes in deaths in 2020 are consistent with historical trends, only topping 2018 by 11,292 deaths. There have been over 262,000 deaths attributed to Covid-19 in the United States, yet total deaths have not increased in any alarming capacity; they have only mirrored existing trends. In short, according to 6 years of data collected by the CDC, Covid-19 has not led to any significant increase in deaths" https://www.aier.org/article/new-study-highlights-serious-accounting-error-regarding-covid-deaths/ Oh my GOSH! You mean the 'news media' is manipulating statistics to drive an agenda? INCONCEIVABLE! Its funny how we can have a quarter million KungFlu deaths in the same year seasonal flu deaths drop by 200k. Just a coinkidink. Don't bother looking into the data at all, just parrot what the talking head on the tee vee said. Now someone will quote an unverified outlier of a story (read on facebook) about ONE guy who wasn't a morbidly obese diabetic smoker with a heart condition who died from Covid to refute the 6 years of data you posted. A co-worker of mine lost his sister suddenly this Spring (30s, no underlying conditions). I had to cover for him for a week, official cause of death? Covid. When he quizzed her doctor, he said she had a blood clot break free and get to her brain, but Sevier County recorded it as a KungFlu statistic. People will believe what they want to believe, even when reality is smacking them in the face so hard it leaves welts. I'm not your red pill. Continue going about your life like you always have. Ignore that feeling in the back of your brain that it just doesn't feel right. Probably just some bad curry.

  20. As of right now, nothing has changed. They do not change the classification of the pistol. It remains a pistol after installation. That said, I won’t say that can’t change in pursuit of a sale. Like everything else in our corner of interest, the politicians always have us in their sights

  25. There’s an ad on GOC trying to trade a “brand new” 10/22 Takedown for an M&P 15-22. I don’t know them or anything about the gun, or if they are interested in selling; but remembered seeing this here and thought I’d give you a heads up.

  34. Those guys that want to carry a gun in their pants pockets like those hammerless models. Maybe you could trade it for a good one. A K or L frame would make a much better home defense gun. Plus the felt recoil and accuracy would be much better for the ladies. Don’t get me wrong, I love my J-frames. But not for home defense; unless that’s all you have. Remember....this thread was a "what would you do?" type.

  36. I’ve got an Orvis 5-weight and a 9-weight that I’ve had since I was a teenager. There’s no telling how many fish those rods have caught in the streams and in the surf. There are some great makers these days - more so than the late 80’s when I was getting into the sport. But, I always have a soft spot for Orvis rods. Temple Fork Outfitters puts together some decent kits for a beginner that won’t break the bank. Probably with all the Black Friday sales you can find a good 5-weight kit that’ll serve for a bunch of years.

  42. "There are proven strategies for reducing gun violence in urban communities without turning to incarceration. " So we sure don't want to put gangsters in jail, but those of us who've never committed a crime should have our property taxed or be forced to sell it to the government! I suppose I could have quoted darned near the entire article with things I find outrageous. There was one paragraph that I agree with, though. The suggestion that LE be notified any time someone fails a background check. Those who are prohibited from firearms possession and who lie on the 4470 should be prosecuted and punished. SCOTUS will certainly be important in all of this, and with Roberts' record we cannot count on him. Therefore, the senate races in Georgia become extremely important to any of us who value our natural right of self-defense. I'm going to donate a little money to the republican candidates there. I sure can't compete with the Hollywood elites who are pouring money into those races, but maybe a little bit will help. Thanks Randall53, for linking this information!

  43. We better hope the SCOTUS helps. They are going to have to do their job. “It’s within our grasp to end our gun violence epidemic and respect the Second Amendment, which is limited.” The SCOTUS has to quit dodging the issues and lay out precisely what our rights are. Of course if the Dems are allowed to pack the court; that will be a problem. We just lost Remington even with the “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act”. They could no longer afford to defend themselves. If that is repealed; all our American gun manufacturers will be gone. And it appears “imports” can be easily stopped. I suspect this won’t stop with guns either. If they can justify holding the gun manufacturers accountable for the actions of criminals; they can do the same with Drunk drivers and the automobile industry. Its about paydays for people that live off the government and they will do anything to do that; no matter what the cost to our economy and the working class. Liberals want to destroy big business and the wealthy. They aren't smart enough to understand the consequences, or they just don’t care, as long as it gets them reelected. I suspect, just like the Presidential election, truck loads of illegal ballots will show up in Georgia and the Senate could be compromised.
