  1. Conspiracy Theories, Coronavirus, TGO and YOU For as long as I can remember, TGO has never really provided "safe waters" for people who want to preach conspiracy theories and rile-up the masses. There are plenty of places for that sort of thing on the Internet and yes sometimes the conspiracy enthusiasts (or nuts, if you so prefer) are proven right in the end. But since there are so many other places for it and since we feel that the ravings of fringe believers tends to bring down the property value, we prefer that our members engage in discussions based in reality. Lately the mode

  2. I have been a TGO member since 2008; more active some years than others, but I am committed to checking in daily. Last autumn I realized how much I missed being on TGO on a regular basis. In the time I have been on TGO, 99.9% of the folks I have met have been kind, generous, funny, helpful (even when I ask dumb questions or make inane comments), and supportive when I have shared personal issues. As we start 2020 I want to offer a genuine and sincere THANK YOU to all who have interacted with me. It is my goal to be a friend, support, and advocate for everyone I meet on TGO. Let'

  4. If you didn't feel you were in enough danger to shoot them in the chest then you were not in enough danger to shoot them PERIOD. Lethal force is LETHAL force and shooting someone a LITTLE is just like shooting them a lot. Once the gun comes out and goes BANG everything changes. Its not just for funsies anymore.....And what happens when you try to play Lone Ranger and shoot dude in the gun hand and the bullet ricochets off his gun and into his carotid artery? Or you shoot dude in the leg because you "don't want to hurt him" and you hit him square in the femoral artery and he bleeds out in

  7. Approximately 7 weeks ago I sent the slide from my 4.25" duty-size M&P M2.0 9mm to Doug Presson at DP Custom Works to have their GAB 4.0 package and a fresh jet-black nitride finish applied to it. Today, it came back and I quickly reassembled it with a Trijicon RM07 red dot, 10-8 Performance sights (M&P front, Glock rear) and an Apex Tactical Specialties striker safety plunger. I am ambivalent about the Apex trigger on the M2.0 series so I have skipped that for now. They look good for social media but I built this to be a fighting gun. Some time ago I smoothed out the area

  16. Last Easter I fashioned a Cross out of a couple of 1 x 4's and hung a wreath on it, in our front yard. We have a large circular flower bed with a bird bath in the center of it. Last winter the B-bath bowl split in half. I put the cross where the bird bath was, in the center of the flower bed, for the Easter Holiday. After the holiday week I just left the cross in it's place. I am a Christian and not ashamed to let people know. Long story short, our 16 Y O grandson is struggling with the on line learning, because of Covid, from his high school. Our daughter has been looking for a Tud

  17. While on the road in Alabama, I stopped in at Hoover Tactical... I had just started my research into the world of semi auto .308 rifles, so was just looking. Ended up with walking out with an HK91 When I saw it, I assumed it was a PTR91 or Century C308; both of which I've handled at Bud's and wasn't a fan. Salesman says, "it's a real one." "A real one what?" "Not a clone or kit, it's nice, here, check it out." I agonized over the decision and justified through, "they ain't making them anymore, they are desirable, it should appreciate, and I know a guy who wou

  18. My take of a 1918 trench knife. It took me weeks off and on. No CNC or waterjet machines here....just my normal tools and lots of patience. All 1084 steel with antiqued hickory handles. The pins are SS but I did that purposely for contrast. It went to a businessman in Texas. He's bought several of my knives over the years.

  19. I think I am almost done with polymer/plastic guns. I like plastic guns like my Glocks . They are like Craftsman automotive tools. They work and hardly ever fail , except maybe a 36 or 44 ,,,,, LOL . But seriously I have my plastic guns and they work great but I have gotten older or to where I like good ole steel. I got this 2 year old CZ 75 Compact 9mm ALL STEEL today and I am very pleased. Just gave her a bath of Ballistol. The way I feel about it is like Obi-Wan ,, " Not as clumsy or random as a blaster , An elegant weapon for a more civilized age."

  22. Yesterday I was checking out the Facebook page of one of our local gun ranges here in Memphis (Top Gun) and noticed they just received this New Colt Python in. I couldn't believe it was still available when I went over to the range this afternoon. I could not help myself I had to have it. It was between this beautiful Colt Python and Links2K Henry .357 Magnum Rifle. I am sorry Links2k, but the Colt won. I cannot wait to get to the range shoot this beautiful handgun.

  23. This year made my 2nd year ever fishing for Crappie and my best year of fishing for them. I might catch bigger later on but for Watts Bar these are dang good fish and my personal best. Dont know the weight just got the measurements. The black went 16 1/4in and 12.5in Girth. The white went 15in with a 12in girth. All I know is they sure are good to look at so the $310 was well spent. I used a old piece of barn wood and stained the edges with Minwax Red Mahogany 225 to get that burnt look on the outer edges. And used Cocunut Oil for the rest to keep the color lighter.

For most of us, these things should take priority over a new firearm purchase. If you are in good shape then awesome! Buy night vision!

  29. Antifa protesters burn the American flag in Portland, Oregon (2020) Immediately following the attacks on the World Trade Center, Pentagon and Flight 93 back in 2001, you couldn't buy a United States flag in the Nashville area. The same story played out across the country. Store shelves were wiped clean of them as the people united together as one nation and proudly displayed the Red, White and Blue everywhere. Flags flew from homes, businesses, construction sites, fire trucks. Remember when a fire department could put the flag or a flag sticker on their trucks and not be cruc

  30. Depends on WHERE you are in the traffic. the first thing is to call 911 if for no other reason than to get it on record what is happening. If you are the first car then keep moving if you can. I'm not talking about "drive through the crowd in Charlottesville " style, I'm talking about just rolling through slowly enough not to do any undue harm if possible. But again this depends on the mood of the crowd. People chanting and waving signs and people throwing bricks are two different things. And if someone kicks your car or hits it with a bat that is still not necessarily justification

  31. Hi friends, went to my favorite local gun dealer last Friday and picked up a nice Colt Mustang Pocketlite while paying for a CZ TS. Dealer has had this old 1918 Colt in his case for a long while now. Missing a lot of finish, rebarreled during WWII. Shipped to Bush Terminal in Brooklyn in July 1918 whereupon it was sent to see action in France. Very excited to own a piece of history like this! Hard to believe something 102 years old survives in a functioning condition. The things it must have seen in the last 102 years!

  32. The world is an awfully small place You might have thought we would have learned that on September 11th. In America, we’ve largely been conditioned to be pandemic voyeurs - maybe noticing as somewhere else suffers. That’s about to change. Look out for yourselves - but check in on that elderly neighbor. Maybe the older couple down the street whose kids have moved away. The single parent who’s just trying to make ends meet. We’re in this together - that has always been - and always will be America’s greatest strength.

  33. As a former Police Officer, I get mad every time I see this topic come up. You can’t make a person a criminal because they are a victim of a burglary. Metro PD needs to get off their lazy azz and go do the job they get paid to do. The Chief of Police where I was would have laughed at this and the told those planning it “You can’t be serious”. I keep a handgun in my car and am planning on having a rifle. My vehicle is always locked; even when parked inside, in my garage. If a gun is stolen from my vehicle in a burglary and then discovered on a criminal that has just committed a crime, what

  34. My wife told me, many years ago, " I will never allow myself to think of being with someone else, like I am with you." That one statement helped keep me from doing something stupid. We are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary today. Daughter called last evening and told us to be ready to go, somewhere, at 3 this afternoon, and they would be here to pick us up. Don't know how this sweet lady put up with me for this long, because at times I didn't deserve it. However, I like it, I love it, and I want some more of it! Edited to add advice to younger men;

  36. I personally know 8 people (including my college age daughter) that have had confirmed cases of COVID and have all recovered. While 3 of them did feel pretty miserable for a week or so, non of the 8 were hospitalized, and most did not go to a Dr. other than for the COVID test. The oldest was 57, the youngest 18. One of the guys who had the hardest time is 36 and is extremely active and fit. One of the guys who had no symptoms other than loosing his sense of taste is 51 and obese. I don’t know that any of them are/were smokers. I work Fire/EMS at a medium sized city here in TN. I work

  37. So many years back, one summer night about 0300 I was patrolling a roadside park on the outskirts of town that was known for elicit activities. My windows were down and I heard a car wound tight coming down the highway by the park headed towards town. I grabbed my handheld radar and caught his speed as he approached at 118mph in a 45 zone. The car went by and I pulled out to pursue yet waited to turn on blues or siren until I could get closer. He kept up his pace and I had to call on all that Plymouth would give me. As I got within about 200 yards of the speeder I hit my blues about the s

  38. I've owned a 4" blue Ruger Security Six for many years. Great gun! I've had a 2.75" model on my wish list for more years than I care to count. The darn things are hard to come by and often sell at ridiculous prices. About a week ago, one popped up on the local Armslist. I sent the guy an e-mail, but unfortunately had to leave for a doctor's appointment. By the time I got back, it was gone. Likewise, I found a nice blue one on GB just a few days ago. It ended up selling for way more than I was willing to give. But this morning I finally scored! Another one popped up on Armslist. Surprise

Shannon was an OG badass who up until the very end was serving the country for a few different alphabet soup agencies, doing some really bad things to some really bad people. AND he had great taste in music, could make me laugh like almost no other, and was just a hell of a good guy that I think of often. I'll be pouring a glass of something good tonight and raising it not only in his honor, but in the honor of the others here that we've lost too soon. We may not reali

FOR SALE: Dan Wesson Specialist 1911 45ACP, 5" Barrel, Matte Black, G10 VZ Grips, Night Sights If the idea that a Glock would seem more appealing to a person than this beauty makes your stomach churn and you get that coppery taste in your mouth that almost always precedes the urge to vomit... keep reading.

I started hitting shops in a wide area over the last two weeks and today ran across a Springfield XD Mod 2 4" 9mm with an exceptional trigger on it. It came home with me. I was looking for a Sig P365XL and will continue to look for one at a decent price until one of those comes home with me. I did find that after groping many makes and models there were several that appealed to me and my short list grew longer. One thing I would like to mention is that yesterday I

Every time I come into the store I take a look at it. Yesterday I bit the bullet and picked it up. Once I get it to the range I will give an update on how it shoots.

  47. After nearly two years of waiting my customer Cumberland Valley rifle is finished and I am loving it. My Gr gr gr grandfather settled in Mid TN around 1801 and in an area where some prolific rifle makers of that genre (ie. Thomas Simpson, Jacob Young, etc.) were in their heyday. I wanted a rifle that would be as close to "possibly" what he would have owned on the TN frontier of the first third of the 19th century. Posting a picture below but it is a .40 caliber flintlock with a 48 inch barrel. It has a 14.75" length of pull so it is a long rifle. Fits me pretty well, though as I am 6
