  1. Hello everyone! The fact that I am able to leave this here is truly nothing short of a bona fide miracle. If any of you ever thought that God doesn’t still move the fact that I am alive proves otherwise. I will update folks as I can but a few days ago we were talking about me never leaving us hospital alive and now we’re talking about when I’ll be able to go home. For me at this point in my life going home will be moving back to Ohio which is where all my family are. Don’t entirely know what my situation will be like we’re gonna have to go through a lot of physical therapy to build up my stren

  2. Thank you all for the discussion, as I have learned from the group. I hope this never happens to any member, and can now from experience say, "Turn the other cheek", as legally I might of been justified, the reality would have set in that my one finger salute set in motion the events that took a life. Even though the other party played a part, and had no business trying to come into the car, I am responsible personally, even if not legally, for my actions, and testament. I hope this experience, can be used as a lesson, and maybe save a member from being put in a similar situation, or hav

  4. Sorry guys. Like I said, I got this from another forum and didn’t know it was a scam. I figured someone from the Nashville area knows this Jack and could check him out. I was curious that no address was on his webpage.

  5. Let me think about this... Website appears to have been established on Dec 5, 2020. According to their website, they have been able to line up companies all over the US and Canada that freely sell the inventory of scarce products to Jack's Reloading, And they want payment by Venmo or Bitcoin??? Think I'll pass on this one. I'm too busy working with a Nigerian bank to get my huge inheritance from somebody I never knew.

  6. As a general rule, the indiscriminate nature of a booby trap is what has led to them being illegal. They’re illegal in every single state as far as I know. The fact is, the booby trap doesn’t care who trips it, or why. The legal ability to use force, lethal or otherwise, against another requires the conscious action and judgement of a reasonable person that a threat exists. A booby trap in incapable of meeting that criteria.

  7. Well fellas, this thing followed me home last night thanks to Classic Arms. Grips aren't as rough as they appear in pictures and I particularly enjoy the placement of the slide release! Excited to slap an RMR on here for TaCtIcaL SiTuaTiOnS . Trigger leaves more to be desired but features a decently crisp break. Overall I'm happy I put down my bucket of Glock Kool-Aid, albeit for just a second. Thanks for all the constructive feedback!

  8. This may be one of the best threads on TGO I've read in over six and a half years hanging out on this site. Very cool to be able to read the vignette and replies presented. @MarkSas others have said, thank you for being so open and self-reflecting on the incident. We're learning from the benefit of your experience and the conversation it sparked. It's a great benefit to all of us. I think you handled it as well as can be expected when presented with a threat. I also think you have a lesson learned on flipping people off, But these are two separate points in my mind since your ac

  9. I called the number several times and it went straight to voicemail. No part of the voicemail even mentioned the company’s name. Also, their payment methods appear to be shady and offer the buyer no protection whatsoever. I did leave a message for them to return my call. I’ll post an update if I ever hear from them. However, this appears to be one of those “too good to be true” situations.

  11. Just a thought here. Had you not flipped the guy off, would the rest of the scenario have played out as it did? I'm generally a pretty calm man, but having someone say "FU" to my face, through words or gestures, really, REALLY ticks me off. Frustrations can be high in heavy traffic, and sometimes a simple thing like waving the guy on by, right of way or not, can diffuse a situation such as you describe. FAR better, in my opinion, to avoid the confrontation in the first place. A honked horn is one thing, a bullet in the chest another. Mind you, I am NOT excusing the passenger's actions. I

  14. Just picked this up last Friday at Goodlettsville Gun Shop, they handled the Transfer for me. I purchased this one off of another site I belong to. Came with orginal bag, owners manual, and one Mag. I found another orginal Mag. and bought it, man the original Mags. are expensive if you can find them. As soon as I feel well enough I'm going to take it out and run some rnds. through it. I've always wanted one of these for some reason.

  20. I'll second (or third?) the thought that flipping someone off is never going to de-escalate a situation. What exactly were you trying to accomplish by flipping them off? No one in the history of mankind has been calmed down or had their poor behavior corrected by someone flipping them off. But it has led to a lot of fights. And just because YOU (and most normal people ) might not be willing to cripple or kill someone over an insult there are "feral people " out there that absolutely are. Jail is full of people who do not "act like normal people" who have killed people over seemingly minor

  22. Hello everyone. I want to do another update to let everyone know what’s going on. Please forgive any spelling errors or words that don’t necessarily make sense because for the most part I have to do this by voice rather than trying to type it out on my iPhone. Whether or not I will survive this to ever leave the hospital is still unknown . However most of the drugs they had to use the past few days just to keep me alive are now down to almost nothing. Once I’m completely off those drugs they will be able to move away from the intensive care unit down to a normal floor. That does not mea

  25. Had a strange car in our driveway last evening. Must have come in with lights off because where I sit I can see any car coming in after dark with lights on. I only noticed his tail lights leaving our drive. We have a neighborhood message board on Facebook and apparently others had visitors last evening also. One guy posted they were in his drive at 1:30 AM. none of us has a description of the vehicle. They were in our drive at 9:15 PM last evening. Been on the lookout tonight, but been quiet so far. Outside lights are on and all cars and truck locked. Also have doors locked an

  26. I guess you do understand what I meant. I was hoping you didn’t. We should just agree to disagree. I couldn’t live with myself if my neighbor’s kids ended their hide and seek game by becoming ensnared in a bear trap or whatever else you’ve used as examples in earlier posts.

  36. I would dry fire that thing a LOT, with a snap-cap or other inert round in the chamber to protect the striker (a known weak point), before rushing toward the Apex trigger. I took the Apex trigger out of both of mine eventually just because the factory trigger had gotten a lot better with use and I felt that it had a more pronounced reset and predictable feel. I do have the Apex trigger installation jig if you get to the point of wanting to swap yours.

Call and talk to them. It is not insurance but they do the same as others insurance companies. I pay 85.00 per year and I think the first year is a little higher.

You did well except for that one item. glad it turned out for the best. A lot of hotheads out there wh

  43. Somewhere I bet there is another driver rethinking his actions, and hope he also has seen the light of not escalating a non event into a life changing one. I recently drove back from Denver, and am heading back there tomorrow, and have encountered some very rude drivers. One passed into my lane, on purpose, within inches of my vehicle even though traffic was light. I almost honked at him but decided not to as I did not want to escalate the situation even though I was well armed. You never know what the other guy has going through his head, they may be looking for any excuse to be confronta

  44. Someone trying to get into your car certainly means to do you harm. I think that a reasonable person would call it a good shoot, but my opinion is worth exactly what you paid for it. If nothing else your incident has reminded me that I need to look into overriding the auto unlock feature on my Tundra. I hate that it does that. If I pull over for lunch, or I'm checking my phone before I go into a store, I want my doors locked, especially since my attention is not focused on my surroundings.

  46. Red333 really interested in the driveway sensor. Where did you purchase yours, or where can I get one? Is yours battery operated? If so, how often do you replace the batteries. My neighbor has one. He is a retired Policeman. Got a visit a few years back from a thug he helped to send up. Came to take revenge on him. Neighbor knew when the thug pulled into his driveway. I need one because my drive ls long.

  48. Robert, you've been a member here a long time. I know you aren't looking for charity but I hate to see you sell your gun just to put food on the table. I will personally send some money your way to help hold you over until unemployment comes. I can't speak for everyone but I bet we have some other members that will help. Do you have Venmo? It's a free app you download to your phone. All you have to do is link your bank account(it's safe).
