  1. The cool thing about being prepared is that you can sit back and enjoy the show. We've seen this before, and we'll see it again.

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. Hello to all and yes I am still alive and kicking. Got a text from MacGyver last night telling me folks were a little concerned because I have not been on for a awhile. Many of you know I had to put Darby down a while back and it hurt a lot but I had her cremated and she is here with Kasey now in urns on TV console. I knew I was having a few issues when I was in with her to have her put down and when I returned home my daughter took my BP and it was beyond a stroke level and it scared her so she called my doctor and my doctor told her what to do and with in a few hours it was dropping back t

  9. Just wanted to proudly announce that AJ Holst is one of the newest Rangemaster Certified Instructors. AJ took the class in Nashville this past weekend and passed with flying colors. This is no small feat and a Rangemaster Instructor certificate actually means something due to the level of difficulty. It is not just a participation trophy. So a hearty congratulations to AJ !

  12. Good luck finding anything resembling truth in today’s society. I’ve heard so much contradictory information regarding Covid that I seriously doubt all of it. It seems to be more of a political tool to bludgeon us with rather than a deadly virus.

  14. People are scrambling to pick up AR pistols and pistol braces because they think the ATF is going to do to them what they did to bump stocks. Buying that stuff in a panic makes no sense, because *IF* the ATF screws us all over on this, you're either going to register it as an NFA item and might as well put a real stock on it, or you're going to hide it away and risk being charged with a felony if ever caught using it. The ATF needs to be done away with.

  15. In general terms, I do not expect the current retail climate to change much at all for the remainder of the year. The whole thing is rather complicated and multi-faceted. Ammunition: This is equal parts a supply issue, a demand issue and retailers taking advantage of the situation. Primers are in short supply, so there is already a constraint on availability at the component level. This naturally causes prices to increase at a wholesale level. Completed ammunition is increasingly in shorter supply, but I know for an absolute fact that you can still buy 9mm FMJ from the wholesa

  16. If I knew I was an asymptomatic carrier, meaning I had actually had a positive COVID test and wasn’t feeling any symptoms I would do what I consider to be the responsible thing and stay home. That’s the same thing I would do with the flu or a substantial cold. What’s being fear mongered onto us is far from reasonable or responsible, especially with the data we now have.

  18. 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

  21. Flight hours are flight hours. If they take a 10 minute break from practicing refueling and doing touch-and-go's to fly over a stadium, so what? They're also practicing mission planning, coordinating with ATC and ground communications, and a whole host of other operational activities.

  22. They're right in that they're not a good use of tax money. Flying over near empty stadiums when the federal government borrowed $3,000,000,000,000 in one fiscal year is a waste of resources and training hours. I can't imagine flyovers is much of a benefit beyond the flight hours, and right now we need to streamline as much of the operations and training budget as we can while still having combat readiness. So, sorry/not sorry, we shouldn't be seeing flyovers for a random 4pm game early in the season.

  23. I’ve seen a few, only 1 NIB.. This is the nicest used 336-44 Magnum I’ve ever seen. Z serial code says 1964, and only some light dings and light freckles. The top of the receiver is beautiful as well, but needs set screws. Had a set of old raised scope mounts on it, which can go with it too but I like it better without. $1100.. over on the west side, near Jackson.

  27. Visually stunning though my camera is not doing it full justice (see color note). The artists at Weapons Works LLC applied this beautiful Tiger stripe pattern to one of the most popular quality DPMS pattered 308 AR's available. Have to admit it hurts a bit to let it go, but after having it 3 years and never firing it, I hope it finds someone who will appreciate it.

  29. What do you consider a few sacrifices and what do you consider a short amount of time? The entire country did that when we were told to lock everything down for 15 days to flatten the curve. Then it was 21 days, then a month. There are still parts of the country that are as locked down as we here in TN were at the beginning. If you recall, the purpose of flattening the curve was so that we would not all overwhelm the healthcare system, as the “science” showed a couple million people dying within months. In reality, the healthcare system then laid off who knows how many nurses and staff ac

  30. Sold - Selling a classic S&W model 15-3 - 4" .38 Special revolver. Asking $450. Really good condition, super clean. Hasn't been shot in years (decades, probably) and is just sitting in my safe. Was my old man's and he never used it. Mileage unknown, but too clean to be a lot. Believe it’s a 1972 vintage. Thanks for looking!

  31. Most people that have it don’t require hospitalization. You can test positive and be asymptomatic. I doubt Trump would have gone to the hospital had he not been President. On the other hand, you can get it and die. Because of the Politics and the money involved I doubt we will ever know for sure what the numbers are, or why specific people want to manipulate the numbers. My wife works at a large company and the number of people testing positive is remaining steady. To me its like gun safety, I’m not afraid of it, but I treat it with respect and practice precautions and safety.

  32. Thanks, but we figured it was the least we could do considering how hard the old guy was trying to make ends meet and how committed he was to his "responsibilities". I still admire how concerned he was about the possibility of not meeting his responsibility to others rather than his personal loss. The lesson he taught us was far more valuable than the cost of a used engine.

  33. Picked this up from a local guy for 3 bones and was surprised it had gutter tritium sights. That's a $150 option but the tritium was depleted so I milled out the glass a tiny bit enough for some paint and put color in them. Then I figured I'd give it a barrel flute job and put a .090 deep radius cut down both top barrel edges. These are true pocket pistols and sized it over a Rossi 88 that's about the best S&W M60 clone out there. These little 32acp guns are not bad hitters with Underwood copper 55g loads. It came with a nice leather pocked holster + spare 6 rd mag. I put a mirror polish o

  36. I don't understand this line of thinking. What you are advocating for is people stealing a service from a company that sells it. You might as well advocate for running an extension cord out your window and across to the neighbor's house and powering your refrigerator from the electricity they are paying for. It's the same idea. I am not a fan of Armslist because I prefer to do business with people on TGO. Doing business here provides a measure of security in the sense that I either know the person on the other side of the deal, or someone that I know does, or someone that I know and t

  46. Looking around at the general group behavior I see, coupled with either largely idiotic or lax guidance from the top echelons of government (both federal and state), I have no reason to think they won't. Unlike influenza, this baby obviously ain't "seasonal". Although of course since the flu largely is, having both this winter is gonna take a toll that having merely either one would not. I have my doubts that even when a truly effective vaccine is approved (and of course actually universally available) that it will actually cut the overall infection rate by more than 50% in the US at
