  1. A buddy from my Army days runs a gunsmithing shop in Central Texas and did his magic on my late Grandfather's ole Colt he use to slip in his pocket coon hunting. I think it turned out great.

  2. We all know what's coming from Washington. Many Counties in TN have already passed 2A Sanctuary resolutions. However, I'd like to get a movement going to have the entire state of Tennessee declared a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary. I think that with a little nudging from the citizens that this could be done. It won't stop the feds, but it will send a message that we want no part of their BS. I sent e-mails to my State Senator and Representative today. I strongly urge everyone here to do so and encourage all your friends to join in too. The time to speak up is now.

  4. If we're within $1000, I call it good. They're not holding too much of my money and anything I have to pay, that money is in my control. Regarding new and shifting tax brackets; 3 year ago, our gross income increased about $4000, our tax burden increased about $3600 YoY. Not much incentive to make that extra money...but hey, we rich folks are fortunate and greedy.

  5. 110 pieces of 6.5 Creedmoor brass, one fired thru gas guns. Some case openings have deflector flat spots. Minimal to no ejector swipes. 200 to 300 pieces of 556 / 223 brass, once fired. Sorry never counted, they barely fit in a quart ziploc from a couple range sessions when I thought I would start reloading.

  7. alleycat72, my heart breaks for you and your family. My "opinion" you should get some good Christian counseling for yourself and family. There is comfort to be found there, even in a tragic situation, if you are open to it. Get a Bible and read 2nd Samuel chapter 12. Pay close attention to what David said in verse 23 of chapter 12(I shall go to him). Also you can see how a father can overcome tragedy. Drinking is not the answer. Said a prayer for you all this morning. Praying you all may find peace with your situation. One who puts his trust in God can/will find peace with death. I

  8. Not sure how scarce 410 Ammo is but if you have a YOUNGSTER that has a shotgun that needs to be fed, you are welcome to it. First come first serve (Please respond here first then PM me) Can pick up around Walter Hill or off 8th Ave in Nashville. No shipping, Thanks.

  10. Sad story. You can do gun deals arranged online, but you need to exercise some selectivity (buyers from TGO are generally a trustworthy group). Don't do deals at night, and meet in a public place like a gun store parking lot or a police dept parking lot (several depts maintain places for Craig's List transactions and whatnot). I'm sorry for this guy and his family.

  16. I too have suspicions, but I will reserve them. The victim here was a 22yo kid. He very well could have been naive enough through youth and inexperience to place himself in such a bad situation. I know I ended up in a lot of sketch situations at that age. Time will tell what the truth really is here.

  17. Thanks all. There's a local cell-phone store that's a PagePlus vendor and I went there and asked for something that would work. The nice young lady at the desk did all the transfer stuff, and the new phone seems to work.

  21. The proper approach to this question and others like it isn’t “what can I do?” It should always be “what must I do?” Whether in your home or elsewhere. So the question isn’t “can I shoot this person,” the question is “must I shoot this person to defend my life, or the lives of others from imminent harm.” If that’s your operating position, I think the odds of you actually being in a position to shoot anybody are pretty damn low, and facing legal trouble over the shoot well below that.

  23. One never knows. Look at the woman shot and carjacked in Hermitage this week. Thugs are everywhere, watch your backs. I also am always armed and normally have backup when meeting strangers. Not a 200 yard sniper mind you but backup none the less. Haven't been on here long but already "know" some of you guys.

  27. That's essentially what happened. My wife basically doubled her income last year but we only paid in an additional $1,500 in taxes over the previous year. I assumed the payroll software would account for this but apparently not. Prior to this, we had it just about perfect where we got back a very small amount. I'm modifying our W4's to have additional money taken out each paycheck. It was a good life lesson I guess.

  30. I put a set of Goodyear Kevlar ATs on my Tacoma in November after the previous set last 65k miles with no issues at all. Super happy with them. Great tire. Right at $800 OTD. I think there was a rebate I sent in later - maybe $100?

  32. Alleycat, I sent a prayer up for your little girl and your family. I will second Pop Pop's suggestion. I can't imagine your stress level brother. I do know alcohol isn't a solution, it is only a crutch. I know I used to use it and it doesn't help. You can pm me and I will give you my phone number to call at any time. I won't preach to you I promise. It took a long time for me to realize we can't do this "job" on our own. I believe every man and woman needs a couple of REAL friends they can call on at any hour of the day and just listen or help us. Praying for you and your family. Mac

  35. The post by Hozzie is excellent information. Having built a couple of custom 10/22 (mostly Kidd classic builds), I can state that chasing accuracy on a 10/22 can be an expensive hobby. As jpx2rk stated, the Fedderson barrels can be excellent. My avatar is my first 5 rounds shot through a Fedderson stainless barrel at 25 yards (note - 20 rounds were fired through it by another shooter before me). While the Brimstone triggers are great for the money, I'm a huge fan of the Kidd 2-stage triggers. I don't think there's a better trigger on the market for the 10/22. I agree with Hozzie that

  37. Well said Hozzie. If doing just a barrel swap, consider Feddersen barrels. Brimstone reworks trigger groups for $50 or so, stock selection is good.

  40. Just laid down $830ish for some Bridgestone ATs on my Taco yesterday, they said I saved over $100. Much cheaper than the Goodyears they replaced, but as with everything else related to the oil industry I too think they will go up, it's just how much that is the question.

  41. You’ll have to buy a phone that’s compatible with whatever network they’re riding on. As such, it’s probably worth buying from their vendor. Was the Kyocera an old flip phone? If it was, it might be worth checking Amazon or EBay to see if you could just purchase the samE model.

  43. I think Chuck and Chip and A.J. and a few others have done a good job covering the answer but I want to touch on the above question. We don't pull our guns to threaten people. We pull our guns to stop the threat. If the threat ends at the draw or appearance of a firearm, it was a good day. If it takes being on target but the trigger never gets pulled, again, still a good day. But if it takes an empty mag plus a few more rounds, that's the amount of force we must use. Our goal should NEVER be to threaten anyone. Our primary goal is always the same. We use the actions and force n

  44. That’s kind of what I was getting at. Of course, at the time the robber probably doesn’t know you are a law abiding citizen, all the knows it somebody is pointing a gun at him and may shoot. That’s really they only thing that is keeping him from running off. Just seems like a lot of things could go wrong. Probably your best bet is to pull your firearm, the robber backs down where you are no longer in fear for your life, and you just tell him to get out of there. I’ll admit, I’d probably have a hard time doing that, but I’ll also admit I have problems doing what is best sometimes, especial

  47. As always, this is NOT LEGAL ADVICE!! The confusion typically comes from the fact that there is no "hard and fast rule" here. Someone who forcibly enters and has no legal right to be there creates a presumption that you (the rightful occupant) are under a reasonable fear of death or grave bodily harm. That presumption can be overcome by the facts, though. For example, an intruder forcibly enters, is completely naked, and falls asleep on the couch. You walk into the room some time later and find him there. The fact that the intruder meets that presumption definition does not give the
