  2. This is Gypsy the Wonder Dog, dressed up for Christmas. She turned 8 this July. People frequently ask what breed she is, and I tell them with confidence she's a purebred brown dog. There's surely a good bit of Doberman heritage there, but it's mixed with some other stuff. Cheers, Whisper

  3. This is Koira. We kinda inherited her from my youngest daughter who, during a rough spot, was unable to care for her. Now she's a part of the family for sure and thinks she's Queen. VERY loyal and loving dog, probably the most so I've ever seen. She's very attached (almost neurotically) to my wife, but likes me ok too. I think she's around 5 years old.

  5. Here's my lot... Duchess and Winchester. We lost Ruger ,our Black male, in October and are still dealing with it. He was with us for 12 years and our pack is not the same. UPDATE Duchess went to join Ruger last Monday night. She lost her battle with bone cancer. Pain and sorrow are not what I wanted this year. She is at rest now....... I look forward to being with them when I get home to the Lord.

  6. I looked and there are a few threads about a member's dog(s) here and there, but I was surprised that we don't have ONE big thread of all the doggos on TGO. So, let's fix that. ^^^ This is Tiberias, or Tigh for short. Yeah Tigh is spelled weird but I'm also a Battlestar Galactica nerd and fans of the show will recall that the XO of the Galactica was named Tigh. Anyway, he's a pure bred German Shepherd Dog and currently 4-months old. He was a rescue and we were fortunate to be called this past Monday and asked if we wanted to come get him. And yes, we most certainly did. Tigh is proving himself to be the goodest boy possible. Super loving, super loyal, and also already very protective of his new house and his new pack. We're thrilled to have him. So, so me your dogs!

  7. This is Sully, he is kind of a turd but my wife and kiddos really like him. He wasn't getting along at his first home with the resident German Shepherd so my wife agreed to keep him for a few days to help a friend out. That was 6 yrs ago.

  8. This is Cody, my baby. 105 pounds of rotten to the core. In the second picture he's helping me with my building project. Well, more like supervising. The most talkative feller I've ever had. Plus, he's a promising contender for the World Title of King of the Belly Rub. In my world there has never been a more loved and protected dog. I call him my son.

  11. Looks like he ought to be smoking a pipe. My wife was the same. She thought people were crazy to let a dog in the house. I brought our lab home one morning and left for the day. When I came back home, she was sitting on the couch and the dog laying beside her. He trained my wife quickly.

  12. This was our 120 pound lab. The wife said no dog in the house and absolutely not on the furniture, yet here he is. He passed at only 3 years old from cancer. It's been a a couple of years, but still not ready to replace him, he was a good one.

  13. This is Ginger. She's a rescue so not sure of her breed but in her mind she is a Doberman. Lol. She's had surgery on both knees, one eye removed and surgery on her other eye. But she's worth every dime as she is the best dog I've ever had. Great thread.

  14. Surveys are easy to rig. Its all about how you word the questions and limiting answer choices. The classic example is: "Do you still beat your wife?" with only a choice of Yes or No. I don't like the very vague questions or the available answers on this thing.

  18. Good afternoon! For sale is a Browning ProSteel Sporter 24 gun safe, although it will fit much more if you collect Liberators or mouse guns! You don't need to worry about batteries running out when Red Dawn happens as the safe is manually locking with an S&G lock (I'll give you the combo for $50 extra ) and comes with the pistol stands depicted, as well as upgraded rubber shelves per the pictures. Also comes with the locking key and the original combo card if I can find it. Good condition overall, a few house paint marks from moving that will buff out if you decide to show it at a safe show. I'm in the military and moving it has become a total pain as I have to arrange for a special team to come every time I move. I believe it's a 500 pound safe, so it's not a "two guys and a truck" type scenario but I'll work with you to make whatever your moving arrangements are work. I don't remember what I paid (we all know safes sell below MSRP) but I think the price is fair at $400. Located in Collierville - can't meet halfway as I'm shredded obviously, but can't quite lift it into my car. Happy holidays! William

  23. Yeah, not so much a squirrel dog as she is a mole dog.She will chase about anything though.I was bush hogging in the field this summer and she saw a doe and a fawn, she chased them in the woods. About 5 seconds later here she came out of the woods flying at a very high speed with the doe in hot pursuit right on her butt. Funniest thing I’ve ever seen!

  27. CZ P10s are excellent guns. But they arrived late to the "plastic fantastic" party after people had already loaded up with Glocks, Sigs, Rugers, S&Ws, Springfield Armory's, etc. But late to the party means you get to fix what others may have got wrong. The P10 trigger is one of the best in the "plastic fantastic" genre. Solid wall with a crisp'ish release (relative to the competition.) The stippling/grip texture is very aggressive but not 'cut your skin' level, which is what you want in a slippery plastic gun. You will not be losing control of a P10 even with wet (bloody?) hands. Then there is the grip angle and feel; it is CZ75 level great. A swing & a hit there. Mag capacity is top tier, too. The CZ P10F holds 19+1 stock. That's a lot of ammo onboard, right out of the box. The best for last? Accuracy! The CZ easily outshoots my Glocks, Springfield Armory, & Smith & Wesson. I like accurate guns. They are really the only interesting guns. CZ did well here. The CZ P10s are a "best buy" right now. Take advantage if you can. You won't have these prices for long. All good things come to an end. Wish I had bought me a Ruger 77/357 when they were "only" $750. Now you can't get a new one at all (supposedly they are 'arriving soon' with an MSRP approaching $1300! Ewww...) It's probably time for me to sell my SA XDm 9mm and get another CZ P10. Those Glocks in the safe probably shouldn't be getting too comfortable either. CZ is making good product. Why the general shooting public isn't catching on to this is beyond me, but people that "know" and shoot a lot have noticed. Once others get on the bandwagon, the prices will creep back up. I'm hoping to make some CZ "hay" before then. On topic with Gun Rebates - the economy is slowly descending into the crapper. Credit cards are maxed out, defaults on that debt grows daily and sales of homes & cars is decelerating. Bidenomics (aka, inflation) has taken a toll on middle class spending for discretionary items. Gun makers realize they need to incentivize NOW to capture sales & clear inventory before things completely tank. That's how I'm seeing it. Time will tell for sure.

  28. The correct answer for all of these is "Strongly Disagree". Due to the wording (unclear what is being asked) it becomes obvious this "survey" is geared to come up with whatever 'conclusion' the sponsor of the survey wants. And the more "gun" people they can get filling it out, the more legitimacy they can present the results as having. If it was a REAL survey seeking legitimate data, the questions would be clear & concise. You would know what you read & you would be able to easily pick an answer that matched your true feelings on the matter. @Worriedman , I truly respect you. This survey, however, is trash. Why is it being pushed when it is clear that the wording is nebulous allowing for ANY conclusion to be drawn from the results? Again - Worriedman = Good! Survey = Bad The left (and governor) want Red Flag laws. We the people want due process & our rights to be respected. The legislature wants guidance on where the winds blow on public opinion. This "survey" will be used to sell the legislature a story that EVERYONE supports Red Flag laws, one way or another, even those 'gun people'. Nope. Not helping them sell that idea. If you take the survey, I suggest you answer "STRONGLY DISAGREE" for every question. Better yet, just skip it. There is no value to be found here. Clear surveys with simple to understand language are easy to write. This is not one of them. Ask yourself why that is.

  30. A letter I started sending out to legislators today. Since at least June 2022, the United States Supreme Court has mandated that government restrictions on 2nd Amendment rights impose on the government the burden to demonstrate that the restriction mirrors or is consistent with the “national historical tradition” that existed when the 2nd Amendment was adopted in 1791. Accordingly, I have been seeking the historical evidence of analogues from the era of the ratification with respect to long gun carry in Tennessee. I can find no statute in Tennessee that existed prior to 1989 that criminalizes the carry of any long gun. There are various, albeit only a few, statutes that regulated in some fashion civilian possession of handguns, as well as knives, clubs, sling shots and brass knuckles. However, even those statutes appeared to be regulations based on collateral factors such as the individual’s conduct and were not broad bans. Indeed, even as of 1989, citizen possession and carry of certain “military” style handguns was exempted from the statutory regulation. Thus, it is apparent that the General Assembly was precise in its desire to list each of those items and the circumstances attendant to the restrictions but yet no such list included long arms. It is likewise clear that Tennessee’s approach, which has been referenced by the Supreme Court, is not one that was in line with the “national” historical tradition. It is now clear that the General Assembly, or the majority of the members thereof, appear to have an animus against the inalienable and indefeasible right of the citizen to keep, bear and wear arms. Indeed, in 2023, the State’s attorney general entered into a voluntary settlement of a federal lawsuit, a settlement which remains subject to federal court enforcement, whereby the State agreed in writing that state laws which restricted the rights of 18-20 year olds to carry handguns violated the 2nd Amendment, the 14th Amendment and constituted a federal civil rights violation. Yet, despite that federal settlement and consent decree, the General Assembly has repeatedly refused to repeal or amend the statutes in question to eliminate the unconstitutional provisions. Rifles and shotguns are items that are in common use today in the United States. The case Caetano v. Massachusetts (2016), proscribed that if there were 200,000 stun guns in the possession of Americans, that this quantity satisfied the rule found by the United States Supreme Court in Miller (1939) and reiterated by it in Heller (2008) that only those weapons that are dangerous AND unusual could be denied the citizen and, more specifically, that firearms that are useful for military purposes and/or that are in common use are protected by the 2nd Amendment. In McDonald (2010), the Supreme Court said it was a conjunctive test, bolstering the previous rulings from the Supreme Court protecting those categories of arms. Today, there are at least 24.4 million AR 15s in the possession of Americans and likely at least 200,000 within a sixty mile radius of Nashville. If 200,000 stun guns was deemed to be a sufficient quantity nationally to achieve constitutional protections as “common use” then certainly 24.4 million is as well. In Tennessee, our Supreme Court stated in Andrews v. State, 50 Tenn. 165, 179–80 (1871) - “[W]e would hold, that the rifle of all descriptions, the shot gun, the musket, and repeater, are such arms; and that under the Constitution the right to keep such arms, cannot be infringed or forbidden by the Legislature.” It appears that by 1989, the General Assembly elected to ignore the state Supreme Court’s constitutional ruling. The Tennessee Supreme Court holding in Andrews further held: "The right to keep arms, necessarily involves the right to purchase them, to keep them in a state of efficiency for use, and to purchase and provide ammunition suitable for such arms, and to keep them in repair. And clearly for this purpose, a man would have the right to carry them to and from his home, and no one could claim that the Legislature had the right to punish him for it, without violating this clause of the Constitution…Bearing arms for the common defense may well be held to be a political right, or for the protection and maintenance of such rights, intended to be guaranteed; but the right to keep them, with all that is implied fairly as an incident to this right, is a private individual right, guaranteed to the citizen, not the soldier." The Tennessee General Assembly and the members thereof have an affirmative duty, pursuant to their respective oaths of office, to follow the constitution and to protect the rights of the citizens, with a priority on those rights which themselves are expressly protected by the Constitution. The United States Supreme Court in New York Rifle & Pistol Ass'n v. Bruen, 20-843. (2022) stated “In Heller and McDonald, we held that the Second and Fourteenth Amendments protect an individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense.” This is the Court’s holding and not merely dicta. It is an affirmative holding that must be recognized as such by those who profess to uphold the Constitutions of the State and Union. We, as Tennesseans, expect the General Assembly to likewise protect and defend clearly established constitutional rights. It, and its members, have failed to do so. I am asking for your written assurances, assurances that we can share with the members of the Tennessee Firearms Association, that the General Assembly will no longer abdicate its constitutional obligations but that it and its members will move forthwith in 2024 to repeal any and all statutes, regulations, ordinances or orders for which there is no existing clear and convincing national historical tradition as a precedent. It would be good ir it came from more than just one person...

  34. I agree. Reading some of these 10 times and still wondering WTH does it mean/imply. Also with no ability to provide input this survey is skewed to get the results it's looking for. I see very little solutions, just more blah, blah, blah, blah that can be used to implement more useless laws.

  35. The problem with this survey is that four of the eight proposals listed are described so nebulously that it's not possible to judge whether they would be useful or detrimental to honest citizens. As the saying goes, the devil is in the details, and four of these proposals are described so minimally that they could have been developed by Satan himself, but cloaked with vagueness to hide their true evil intent. Maybe I'm too skeptical in my old age, but I find it unlikely that this is an accident. Cheers, Whisper

  36. There are other societal enforcement mechanisms, then the law/violence. Just because we don’t believe something should be a crime, doesn’t mean that we think it is something people should do. Shame, condemnation, and exclusion from community are all reasonable methods of ensuring that respect for societal norms is maintained. Do I think it should be illegal to carry a loaded long arm on one’s person? Absolutely not. Do I want people just wandering around with the rifles on their back? No. I don’t think that’s good either.

  38. Whether the laws are new or previously existing, they must all be judged by the same standards of constitutionality and respect for the individual’s rights. I have a position based on principles. It’s not based utilitarian ideas of how I think undesirables should be best controlled.
