  1. I gained a new daughter in law last night. Looks like anothe may be in the making in the future. I’m truly blessed, but how the hell did I get here? These boys are still supposed to be playing little league baseball in my mind!

  2. We can debate tactics, gear, and spend countless hours on 9mm vs. 40 S&W vs. .45 ACP...all that is just filler. Nothing determines an outcome more than the mindset of an individual who acts when human instinct is to freeze or flee.

  3. This Outdoorsman is a S&W 5-screw, "pre-Model 23" made in 1955 with matching serial numbers. It has an exceptional finish with slight wear. The only rust I found is a small spot on the butt near the serial number. The N-frame is, of course, capable of handling higher than standard pressure .38 Special rounds. Sorry, the original box is long gone. I'm offering it at $1200 firm to members with a valid TDL or EHCP. Knoxville area, no trades.

  4. Winchester 1873, 3rd model. 44-40 cal. (44 WCF). Manufactured in 1888. Full octagon 21” barrel, buckhorn sight, tang sight, original everything and owned with great care- stock intact with original cleaning rod. I got her from a family member last year and have put 20 cowboy rounds through. The rifle is accurate, intact, and the rifling is strong with no pitting. Along with her will be 70 factory cowboy rounds and a leather, sheepskin-lined, vintage gun case. $2,300. .

  5. So the answer to the question that probably no one asked... Where has Oldironfan been? I mean He has not posted in close to two months and only visited once or twice to read the goings on. I bought a new bike and took off for a few weeks to ride. I had been planning a fly and ride trip over the Spring. I knew I had some time to take off work around the first of June so I was looking at big bore adventure bikes in Texas, Colorado, Oregon, California, and even a few in the northeast. The plan was to fly out and buy a bike then take the long way home over a couple of weeks. All that went out the window when I found a bike about an hour and a half down the road near Cookeville, TN. I picked it up near the end of May and promptly tore it apart to set it up for my needs and wired in some accessories. I then quickly revamped my plan for a ride during my time off. Should I go out to the east coast and places like Cape Hatteras? Nope, the weeks following Memorial Day and the official start of summer beach season would mean traffic and tourists, lots of them. That was out. Should I go south to ride the Florida Keys. See above plus it was going to be hot and swampy down there. Should I go West toward the mountain passes of the Rockies and the deserts of Arizona or Nevada? Maybe, but the heat would probably be high in the desert and my comfort level off road with narrow mountain passes on a new bike might be an issue. North was the only option that made much sense so off to Canada and the Great Lakes it was. I decided I would ride around the perimeter of all the great lakes. I did make the executive decision to ignore lake Michigan and Michigan all together. Too many trips to Detroit, Grand Rapids, Benton Harbor, and Chicago for work made spending much effort on seeing Lake Michigan seem pointless. I needed to dip a toe in Superior, Huron, Ontario, and Erie. So June 1 I set off and headed for the west side of Lake Superior. About 10 days later I returned home with an additional 3200 miles in the bike and a bunch of memories to go with the pictures. My route was Nolensville, TN > Rockford, IL > Stone Lake, WI > Thunder Bay Ontario CA > Wawa Ontario CA > Manitoulin Island Ontario CA > Wiarton Ontario CA > Kingston Ontario CA > Niagara Falls Ontario CA > Erie, PA > Cleveland PA > Columbus PA > Nolensville, TN (home). Through it all I managed to get in about 250 to 300 miles of gravel and forest service roads in Northern Wisconsin and Canada. I camped a few night, stayed in a cabin and a bunkee a couple nights, and hit a few hotels on the way up and back. Also had to hit a hotel in Niagara Falls as there were not many camping options close by. Also snuck in a ferry crossing although it was not as enjoyable as I would have hoped due to rain and upper 40º F temperatures. My steed for the ride and my new commuter is my '05 BMW R1200GS that my wife has nicknamed Tucan. In addition to the 3200 miles on the trip I have put a about 1800 miles on locally bringing my total for the summer to 5000ish miles.

  13. I do. And you do. And Daniel does. Core morals, I believe, tend to be societal. However moral values that extend past those cores or even some interpretation thereof is up to each individual. Generally with the younger or “woke” folks, we are talking more about values that fall on the fringes, items that effect smaller and smaller groups of people. I’m happy there are people trying to care for something. But you cannot force your morality onto someone else. You can’t force beliefs onto someone else. Changing someone takes two way communication, empathy, reasoned debate and understanding. And most of the time today, neither side of any discussion is willing to give the other a fair shake. Arguments are made with emotion and shaming and that’s why instead of making progress, society is regressing and heading towards a downfall.

  14. I have decided I am ready for the next chapter in my life which means selling out here and moving to a lake somewhere. You will see me posting a lot of things on here over time as I plan to get rid of almost everything (except guns), but the biggest item of course is my house. As everyone knows, prices are what they are and I figure this isn't for everyone, but who knows. I figured I would throw it out here and if nothing else, maybe someone knows someone looking for something like this. I will offer 1% of the final selling price to any TGO'r who sends me a buyer that is not using a realtor. You must PM me ahead of time to give me their name so I know who they are. The listing is on Zillow at https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/5347-Harris-Cemetery-Rd-Chapel-Hill-TN-37034/121899705_zpid/?view=public If someone is interested personally, let me know and I will give you the rock bottom TGO price. If you are a realtor, let me know that as I will not be giving the same price if a realtor is involved and expects to run things through the brokerage. Thanks.

  17. He can’t fix things by himself. There are many decades of issues that need to be addressed to correct the problem. Sadly I don’t believe anyone is willing to put in the work, and things will get worse. I’m taking my woke agenda to infect another red state. It will be funny to hear the residents saying those damned Tennesseans are ruining everything with their liberal agenda. Seriously guys, things are going to continue to deteriorate in this country until we stop being suckers for politicians and corporations. Do you think they wake up angry everyday, b*tch on the internet, get riled up by the news, drink a fifth of whiskey, go to bed, then rinse and repeat? Hell no! They are enjoying all of the things they tell you are being taken from you. Meanwhile you’re a puppet for the machine.

  19. So some know I am heavily into 22 Benchrest. I also do most of my own barrel work, etc on my guns. I won a Douglas barrel blank at a match and it isn't what I normally use on my competition guns, so I decided to make a customized 10/22 since I had one laying around. Actually, this has zero Ruger 10/22 parts. The only part I used from the donor gun was the action and it was from a T/C22 which is just a Ruger clone, but I liked it as it had the pic rail built in. Anyway, here is the rest of the story. Receiver was internally threaded to 3/4-16 so that the barrel would mount like my other custom BR actions. I threaded and chambered the .920 Douglas Barrel to fit and chambered it based on being in the 10/22 platform which basically means it has to be a little larger chamber with more taper for feeding. This is still way tighter than a factory chamber, even a Bentz. I purposely did not go too loose as this is built for accuracy and precision which it is does very good at. What this means is that it can be a bit finicky with certain ammo's and feeding. I only use SK or better (Lapua normally) and it runs pretty good. It may take some trial and error to see what ammo you have that it likes. This is a bench gun, not a walking around gun as the barrel is pretty long and heavy. It has a Kidd Bolt, springs, and 3oz/3oz trigger. It also has their rear action mount that creates a second action screw into the stock. The stock has been inletted and bedded to fit. The stock is a Boyd's At-One. The scope on it is not priced with it. Price is $1000. As I got the barrel for free and did all of the work, just the parts are worth more than this. So why am I selling? I'm just not a 10/22 guy. If you like 10/22's and accuracy, this is a pretty good opportunity to pick up something that will outshoot most factory bolt actions with ease. Pickup in Franklin, Columbia, or Murfreesboro areas as I am in between all three. Any questions, just let me know.

  22. For your consideration: a 100+ year old British revolver. This piece has been sitting in my safe for 2 years after I inherited it and I realized it needs to go to someone who will appreciate it. Mechanically it appears to be excellent; locks up tight. Dry-firing, everything feels and sounds good. The cylinder is uncut (cutting these was common) and the seriel number #2399, matches the frame. Cosmetically....good for its age! However, there are a couple things of note: The grips have pieces missing. Your options are to get them repaired, find an intelligent person with a 3-D printer, or leave as is. The nickel is decent but with several spots of wear and pitting. The barrel crown shows considerable wear. I tried to document the deficiencies in the photos. The bore looks pretty good. Although this is legally an antique and could be mailed, I doubt anyone would buy this sight-unseen. I will drive about 60 miles to meet someone for the sale. $1100.00

Their actions have nothing to do with serving the people. We are a country run by the elite and lobbyists for the one percent regardless of party.

  29. We actually do have state supremacy with regards to firearms laws in Tennessee. The issue with things like the metal detectors at the fairgrounds are actually a specific carve out granted in the statutes by the state. Signs carrying the force of law is something that many of us find obnoxious and have worked for a long time to change. I would strongly suggest joining and supporting the TFA as they are doing all of the heavy lifting in the fight for that change. The way the TICS system works is fairly obnoxious and I won’t argue with that. However, I will say that in the grand scheme of things, there are better places to spend political capital to make changes in the near and mid-term. The lack of public land that is open and available to shoot on is something that I always make sure that I warn people of who are considering moving here from out west. Public land just simply doesn’t exist in the manner in which it does where you are from. State parks and other public lands here generally are set up for a much higher density of usage than required for the millions upon millions of open acres that you find out west. It sucks, but it is what it is. As far as the carryi of loaded long guns, which is illegal in Tennessee unless directly connected to sporting activity, I too would like to see some change within that realm. That said, you were coming from one of the last vestiges of western culture that exist in this country, and until California started screwing everything up coming in from the West Coast, you generally had a spectrum from very urban to very not going from east to west. The cultures reflected that. The more urbanized the area, the less acceptable that sort of behavior is Not because it’s wrong, it’s just unusual in an urban setting. On that note, the greater metro Nashville area has a greater population than the entirety of the state of Idaho. It may surprise some, but even the very rule parts of Tennessee are very densely populated in comparison to much of the western states that are mostly owned by the federal government. So, I’m not trying to shut you down or tell you you were wrong. Just provide a little context from the perspective of somebody who has spent significant amounts of time out west as well as being from this area. You do bring up things that absolutely could be better. I strongly recommend supporting the Tennessee Firearms Association’s work if you would like to see progress made on those fronts.

  30. Been eyeing this gun for a year. Ended up buying one two months ago JUST before they sold the last of them! The recoil is almost non-existent which is great because the original British SUSAT optic requires you put your eyebrow up to the optic. I was genuinely worried I was going to end up with a black eye but the rifle shoots insanely flat. I know it isn't for everyone but this rifle hits all my marks on looks for milsurp. The British SUSAT optic is 4x and incredibly clear. I just replaced the tritium that was originally in the optic (removed due to export). Just need to find myself a strap, bayonet, and possibly the bipod!

  31. Selling this new, unfired Winchester Model 70. Comes with box and papers. Does not come with scope pictured, but I will sell with the Talley Bases and QD 30MM rings. Bought this last year as a donor for a custom safari rifle build...but I found one already fully customized, so I went that route. Great rifle, for a great price. Hard to find right now. $1600

  33. On Sunday July 17 2022 I (along with my assistant instructor at Harris Combative Strategies AJ Holst and Al Swymer ) attended John Hearne’s (Two Pillars Training- https://www.facebook.com/TwoPillarsTraining/) Cognitive Pistol with Tactical Anatomy class at Royal Range in Nashville TN. This is the shooting part of John’s Who Wins, Who Loses, and Why” class. In that class was offered on Saturday but AJ and AL and I had all done that one back in February when John and I teamed up to teach a combo class called “Saving Your Life with a Pistol, What Matters and What Doesn’t “ in Dayton TN where he did the 8 hour “Who wins” lecture and I covered the shooting (and low light shooting) portions of that class. So we were just there for Sunday this time. This is not a “teaching you to shoot better” class. It is a teaching you where to shoot and how to think with a gun in your hand (or in your holster). Everyone can easily find classes to teach them how to shoot but not everyone teaches how to make better decisions under stress or cognitive load. That is what this one is all about. This is not going to be an exhaustive review, but we essentially covered classroom material on “Tactical Anatomy” which is what shot placement tends to get best results in making people stop what they are doing (as much as that can be done with a pistol) and John provided some videos of why what you have been conditioned to think about the effectiveness of certain firearms through TV and movies is not how they work for real. Essentially pistols are pathetic little pop guns that require correct bullet placement (and often several of them) to FORCE someone to stop. Half (or more) of the time when people stop what they are doing when shot with a pistol it is because they simply CHOOSE to stop. The bullet did not stop them. That is why we sometimes see dedicated opponents fighting on after being shot numerous times. So it is best to plan for the worst and pray for the best case. On the range we shot a few “ pulse check” drills so John could get a feel for the shooting ability of the class. This was a high achieving class with several people I either know personally or by reputation or have been in class with before. Some of these were Aqil Qadir of Rangemaster and Citizens Safety Academy and Chris Baker of Lucky Gunner . Not sure who else wants to be named so I’ll stick to just those guys and my crew. Because of the high level of gun handling and accuracy shown by the whole group John was able to push the curriculum a little faster than normal. We did numerous drills that all started with a visual cue instead of an audio cue. That is important as you are generally LOOKING for someone’s actions to cause you to draw not listening for an audio cue like a shot timer. John employed turning targets and a light system (with a roving light bearer) so you would have to scan for visual info on when and how many rounds to shoot. In the Anatomy department we used 3D targets to see what track bullets take from different angles. John used metal rods to show the wound tracks and angles from entrance wound to exit on the TacMan targets. He also included an anatomical overlay on the back and a “spine” One of the pics I have included shows 9 holes (3 groups of 3 ) that I shot from different angles to the target and all 9 perforated the “spine”. If you are to one side or the other of the target you will need to aim differently than if you are facing it straight on. At those angles aiming at the sternum would have simply cut through the other pectoral muscle but aiming at the close side pec punched through heart lungs and spine. We also did a block on safely moving around others with a gun in hand and did a man vs man shoot on steel with the go signal being the appropriate colored light. We finished up with a run on the Farnam spinner target which is harder to spin than it looks.....at least my reload was fast... All in all it was a great presentation from a good friend of mine and an opportunity to shoot drills that you cannot get just anywhere and was held at a world class facility. If you are at the level where you are looking for a class that teaches you how to think with a gun and where to shoot for best results and then testing those skills then catch John’s class when he comes to your area. And just in case you were wondering I get no monetary consideration for this review and in fact I paid to attend the class. Pics and videos can be found here......https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=147999101186068&set=pcb.148017177850927

  34. Sorry, I'm going to keep backing in. I have a couple of reasons for doing so. 1) There is less likelihood of backing into something while backing into an open space than there is backing into a parking lot where people are walking and cars are going by. (I also don't assume that any of those people are paying attention for chit). Plus if taller vehicles are parked next to me I can't see if traffic is coming when I back out of the space. 2) Parking spaces are getting smaller than they used to be and a lot of vehicles are getting larger. I can't see the lines on either side pulling in, so I'm guessing. If I back in I can see the lines in my mirrors so I can center my vehicle in the space so that I'm not parked on or over the line because people that can't get their vehicle in a single space are one of my peeves.
