  1. My two HiPowers. These are some of my favorite pistols and they are almost in a class by themselves. The ergonomics, accuracy, and reliability are stellar. Another genius design by John Browning.

  2. https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/8?q={"search"%3A["hr+8"]}&r=1&s=1 Think it will pass? 210 co-sponsors, of note the equivalent bill from last year had 232 co-sponsors. I notice Cohen and Cooper are both on the list. GOA have a nice tool for sending emails.

  3. Grand Torino and gr8smiles are as two good reasons to be a member as I can think of. Where else can you buy such nice things for such fair prices? My hat's off to these two fine members. Somehow, I've so far avoided buying any of gr8smile's offerings, but I just know it's coming.

  7. Lol, you can't put a question mark after eh, you wouldn't have passed the test You know how they say "the grass is always greener on the other side" ? Well that's true here. I had family move to the states years ago, and friends since then, and they all kept saying "come down, why do you stay there?". Thing is, it's never really been too bad here. Sure we're sort of a third world country, sure our money looks ridiculous, but damn, people are nice here (or used to be anyway). It's not a terrible place to live, UNTIL a hostile government takes over, and starts to remind you that you are not free citizens, you are quite literally "subjects of the crown", or in other words property. I believe the government is gearing up to take away the right to own things, the slogan is "you'll own nothing...and love it". Canadians have the highest levels of personal debt in the entire world. Small crappy houses cost 1 million (no joke), with yards that are 35x90ft. Our "real" tax rate is something close to 80%, once you factor in the federal, provincial, sales, carbon and sin taxes. "Free" health care is what we keep bragging about, but let's say I pay $200,000 a year in taxes, and the guy that breaks into my car every night for meth money pays $0. We both end up at the hospital, I have chest pains, and he's on his 5th OD. HE goes first because he got in the door first. Emergency room wait times (pre covid) were up to 12 hours. TWELVE HOURS BEFORE YOU GET TO SEE A TRIAGE NURSE!!! Now a lot of that was union garbage, and we do have some good doctors here (you can't pronounce their names, but they're usually competent), as all of the good english speaking doctors get snapped up by US hospitals. So taking that into consideration, and the tax savings themselves, I'm good with paying for the health insurance, and being able to pick and chose where and when I get healthcare. I mean there's a lot of good here (it's a beautiful country), BUT being a true free citizen of the planet is way way way better. That's why when I get there, I'm going to fly the stars and stripes, remove my hat for the anthem, and be bloody glad I'm there.

  8. Welcome to TGO, and I hope you do move to Tennessee. I live just outside Nashville, and used to live outside Chattanooga and still have family there. I have close friends in and outside of Cookeville also. Id recommend looking around Chattanooga or Cookeville. Nashville itself is full of liberals and even the formerly conservative areas around Nashville are filling up with liberal immigrants form New York and Commiefornia. Of course as soon as they get here they want to change us to be more like them. Property/houses/apartments prices have shot through the roof...if you can find one.

  9. If the democrats get their way, by either making DC or Puerto Rico a state, automatically registering everybody to vote, and make mail in voting commonplace, your vote in TN will be worthless on a national level. We are getting to a point that our only hope is to have the State stand up to the Feds. I agree that to have the State go against the Federal Government is a steep hill to climb. The feds have taken over state’s rights by taking hold of the purse strings. It’s something we should at least consider though.

  13. I was browsing around Ollie's the other day and came across a book that got my attention. It is called "Cop Under Fire" by well-known Sheriff David Clarke Jr. I'm about close to being halfway through and it haa been a good read. I always liked his no-nonsense attitude and his unwavering support for law enforcement. He doesn't pull any punches and tells it like it is on a variety of subjects. I highly recommend it.

  14. An attempt to make the federal congress "regulate" the lawful exchange of goods between one Tennessean and another Tennessean, having nothing to do with interstate commerce or any other legit constitutional source of congressional authority... Hmm. Mr. Thompson, how about you see to California and I'll see to Tennessee.

  15. That image is not upside down. The single star is always closest to the blue bar no matter which side of the flag you are looking at. The flag attaches to the pole along the red edge. Even if it was upside down, the single star would still be closest to the blue bar. It looks like they took the blue bar off the image, turned the red part over right to left and then added the blue bar back.

  16. Welcome to TGO. To answer one of your questions back aways the power company getting into the internet business is fairly new but they seem to be expanding into areas underserved faster than any other companies. They are doing the same here in NE TN with Fiber and small wireless towers. Still waiting for them to drop a couple more towers in for me to move from slow DSL but a friend that had no options but cell hot spots or satellite just got fiber back in December. Good Luck

  17. truly not certain. the wording appears to put the burden of proof on us citizens which won't pass federal court scrutiny so I am taking the wait and see. proof being the background check and required training. if it translates to the same procedure as we now have without the state fees that would fix the proof issue.

  18. Heh, I see the two sides, and I gotta tell you, if it really came down to it, sign me up with patriots, rednecks and hillbillies any day of the week. I come from old school values. Like the boy scouts used to teach (oh sorry, it's just scouts now isn't it?). I like to help those that need to be helped, not just hand over the keys to the farm to anyone that cries loud enough. Show up to work if someone is awesome enough to give you a job. Thank someone if they help you. Hold the door open for the person behind you. Wave at people you don't know, help gather up the horses because the damn gate was left open again. Community used to mean something, and I like to think it still does, but I have realized that you simply can't be friends with everyone, so I'd rather pick happy decent people. If you can swap out a transmission if it was necessary, and appreciate a good scotch, so much the better.

  20. Yeah I've been following the exodus from the hard blue states pretty carefully, but TN is appealing because it's too cold for californians to hang around too long, and "much too unsophisticated" for fancy new yorkers. Unfortunately I think all big cities will turn blue, until they become uninhabitable. Sooner or later lefties always turn on themselves, so best just let them at it, although I'm eager to visit Nashville, and see all the historical sites around the state, but we were already warned off of Nashville proper. We should have no problem $ wise once we sell everything here. The tricky part is we don't qualify for any kind of mortgage because we are non citizens, so everything has to be cash until we get set up with the IRS, etc. So we literally have to sell everything here, then go there, and buy. The logistics of selling/buying/moving/visa application etc etc is a bit daunting to be honest, so I'm trying to figure out as many things as possible before it all goes ahead (spring 2022 is the absolute latest we want to be out of here). I get along best with gun people, and generally we usually share political views, so I knew this would be the place to start asking questions of "real people". I'm quite excited to go. It's literally an hour drive to the gun range here. Also, I shoot IPSC, we can't practice here unless there are ROs on duty, AND the club has permission to operate (couldn't during all these so called pandemics). The few times I've competed against Americans, well I just can't touch their speed. I chatted with one guy from AZ and he was "I have all of the qualifier layouts set up in my backyard, I can practice morning to night". I mean, how can I ever compete with that, considering all I can do is shoot paper? My practice is done in the garage with an airsoft, and they just proposed to make THOSE proihib. I mean they are after 100% disarmament here, which means they want to do something really ####ty to us. As a Canadian I do have to apologize for such long responses. I'm just so thrilled the wife finally got off the NC choice, she's stubborn when she sets her mind to something. I wanted TN since day one. Can we still fly the confederate flag down there? I mean, I think we all grew up idolizing the General Lee, no?

  21. Beauty eh! I'll scope out the Chatanooga area for sure, see what kind of properties are available, and I'll see about calling the utility. Is it normal to have internet controlled by the electric company? That actually sounds pretty good, as they're probably good at keeping networks up and running. We have to make the trip down and view some properties, although we risk being detained if we fly back in. We're half-assed thinking about just driving down, it's only about 12 hours from here, and it saves us from possible detainment if we fly back into Canada. So we want to have a pretty good idea of where we're looking before we do that.

  22. Well my wife is literally 'the boss' (CEO), and 90% of our clientele is either left, or at least liberal (those two things aren't always the same). So I'm not really allowed to talk to any of the clients (until my wife clears it at least). So I know what you mean. I think she heard that ben shapiro was moving to TN, and she loves listening to that guy (I find he takes 2 hours to say what he could in 2 minutes), but that opened the door for me to get the ok to start hunting for places in TN lol.

  24. My wife and I understand. We are the lone conservative people in our street. Between that, the outrageous property taxes, and age; we are looking/considering a move to the Eastern Middle Tn area. Maybe the Cookeville to Crossville area. I have some family in the general area, so it's a possibility. I guess the area for you will depend upon your business and it's requirement. Not recommending, since I don't have knowledge of your specific wants; but I will say there seems to be a goodly number of the kind of people that think like is around there. In any event, I wish you well in your journey.

  25. HK USC, new, never fired. BK date code (2019). Comes with HK softcase, 2 mags, lock, and instruction manual. I bought this new but never fired it. I have two USCs and decided I only needed one. I have some UMP conversion parts, like a UMP lower, for extra if you want. $1500 FTF in Knoxville. I am a member at ORSA and could also meet there.

  26. If you're in middle Tennessee, metro is doing a big drive through vaccination on Saturday at Nissan stadium and appointments are widely available: https://redcap.health.nashville.gov/redcap/surveys/?s=8N3JDCMKWR This applies to everyone in group 1C statewide. Likewise, here in middle Tennessee, Walmart has just opened appointments as well. Yesterday afternoon and today, they have plenty of same day appointments depending on where you are. Clarksville was trying to give them away to anyone who wanted it yesterday. Cookeville reported this morning that "if you're between 16 and 65 we'll give it to you." https://www.walmart.com/account/login?returnUrl=/pharmacy/clinical-services/immunization/scheduled?imzType=covid

  29. Thanks. That study references three large studies with the opposite findings. It excludes Spain and Sweden from the data, which are strong example of the negative correlation between vitamin D and severity of COVID-19. Clinicaltrials.gov shows 82 ongoing studies of vitamin D as a treatment/preventive for COVID-19. It's not just wacko vitamin nuts who think vitamins can cure everything. I'm okay with everyone else getting the shot. My choice won't affect the speed of vaccinating everyone since there's a waiting list of people to get the shot.

I would like to sell everything at one time, so I thought $45 Shipped for all. Payment Method is PERSONAL CHECK/ USPS MONEY ORDER. Please post that you will take it followed up by a PM. Thanks, I'm going to leave this as a whole lot, but if you only want a couple of things please PM me and we can sort out the price. Thanks.

  34. Good question. I joined before even moving to TN and was welcomed and encouraged. I have learn lots of things, some even useful . Met a fellow early on that has become one of best friends. I consider many of you on here a friend even though I have only met a few of you. Bought some nice guns from several of you, one I just picked up today. Bought a nice knife for my son but it is still being stored on my mantel . Have not missed many days checking in here since I joined, it is just part of my day.

  35. Bingo! It surprised me that there were a few (not many) members here who seemed to be unconcerned about 2A rights during the past election. I'm not a single issue voter, but the 2A issue is one of my top concerns. Right now the sharks smell blood in the water, and they're circling in preparation for taking the biggest bites they can manage. Democrats see NOW as the best opportunity in many years to pass a wide range of gun restrictions. And we're seeing party-line votes in the Senate that leave me without much confidence that conservatives can withstand the onslaught. The terrible shame, in my view, is that there probably are some things that can be done to make it less attractive for a criminal to obtain a firearm. But we've passed the point that any compromise on the part of gun-owners simply becomes the new standard and that the anti-gunners begin again from that point. NO compromise will ever be enough for the gun-ban crowd, many of whom are entirely uninformed, and therefore I am no longer willing to support ANY compromise at all.

  41. Thanks Chuck. I could see problems trying to explain your gun to an officer in another state if you didn't have an actual permit on your person. I believe I'll just keep renewing mine. I do see Snaveba's point. There are a lot of really stupid people out there. It does worry me some that there will be untrained people out there carrying guns. OTOH, there are a lot of them out there right now. Many. many people carry guns every day without a permit. I've known quite a few myself. I think this may turn into a self correcting problem. Once a couple of idiots screw up badly and the news media blows it out of proportion, Hopefully other idiots will reconsider there choices or at least study up on the law and go to the range once in a while. Also bear in mind that no sane person, no matter how stupid they are, wants to shoot anybody. Honestly, I think the one thing that would be the best answer would be to teach firearms training, handling and law to young people in our Public School system. But we all know that'll never happen.
