  1. I am all for people doing whatever they feel ok with. I got vaccinated because I didn't really have strong opinion one way or the other. My buddy just texted me and a few buddies that he tested positive today. We all had dinner on Tuesday night, but he thinks he probably got it on a weekend trip to KY last weekend. He had the J&J. Basically said he just has a fever at this point. At the end of the day, if the vaccine keeps me from getting really, really sick, ok by me. I am 46, overweight, and have zero cares about the possible long term side affects. I am more likely to die from a heart attack than anything the vaccine can do to me. Everyone has to make their own choice. Don't want it, don't get it. I just don't want to hear the words 'it's a tragedy' when someone that isn't vaccinated dies from COVID. We all make choices and we all have to live with the consequences, but it won't be a tragedy.

  2. The version I heard from another morning news channel alluded to them knowing each other which could change the look of the situation .

  3. It was politicized, weaponized, and maybe even created as a weapon. The Chinese Communist Party had one big problem. And now, it's gone. But it has always been real and deadly. And I got the vaccine as soon as I could. I wish Phil had been smart enough to see it for what it was. Maybe he will come out of this as a much smarter guy. And for all the politicians that exploited this thing, I hope they all get scabies.

It has a 6" cutting edge and OAL is 12 1/4" Antiqued hickory with antiqued brass and G10 accents. It also has a false edge. The finger guard is also 1084 and sculpted some to go with the blade itself. Thanks for lookin'!

  6. I wanted to build a Shughart M-14 because if you’re gonna have one, it might as well be one modeled off the one used by one of the baddest men to wield it. I started with this M-14 clone from Bula Defense. Mounted an ARMS-18 optics rail and an Aimpoint CompM. I then acquired a surplus M-14 fiberglass stock. The army boys sure do love their duct tape. Once I got it stripped down, it was time to paint! As it sits now, it’s in what I refer to as the “movie configuration” ad it’s similar to what was used in the Black Hawk Down film. The CompM will end up coming off and being used on a retro AR build using the original hi-rise optic mount (carry handle gang gang). As of now there are a couple of bits that are either on the way, or requiring a little detailed work to mount. (Waiting on rings for my Aimpoint 5000 and the AIM-1/D needs a tape switch fabricated for it.) Updates to follow as the build is adjusted/completed.

  18. It could be that the victim was found outside the home. If that is the case, then it might be harder to justify the shooting. Maybe witnesses indicated that the homeowner escalated the situation. The report did not give enough info.

  20. EKMO is an external machine that exchanges oxygen and CO2 in your blood. Most often used during transplant surgeries or in cases of significant lung damage(this case) or heart weakness. it means his lungs are experience severe disease or damage that are not allowing them to effectively exchange Oxygen and CO2. He can develop hypercapnia which is basically CO2 poising and becomes fatal.

  22. I need to thin the herd a little more, so this Tikka needs a new home. The riflenis in good shape. The action and trigger are both smooth and function as a Tikka should. I have attached an article, with a short video, to give some insights into the Teludyne Straight Jacket. In short it reduces barrel whip and keeps barrel temperatures cool, to all for higher volume shooting, without losing accuracy. I am including 34 rounds of ammo, 20 rounds of Federal Premium and 14 rounds of Federal Fusion. Cash price is $600 Showing Off the Teludyne StraightJacket Barrel System __ Guns.com

  23. If you are in the surrounding Knoxville area, I will be holding the Enhanced Handgun Carry class at Pellissippi State, Hardin Valley, Saturday Aug. 14. Starts 8 AM. Call 865-539-7167 for details. This is the permit that gives you the best protection and broadest carry privileges in TN plus the most state reciprocity.

  24. You are not the only one. It would appear there are two of us. You eat an elephant one bite at a time. I expect TFA sees this as a good way to raise funds as much as anything. I am, however, pleased with the TFA for getting this done. I would encourage any Tennessee gun enthusiast who isn’t a member to join.

  32. I ended up with a lot of old 22short, 22LR and some 22Long from my father in law. I don’t know if they are still good, but the boxes are cool. Remington, Western, Peter’s and Sears and Roebuck I just wish his 22LR revolver and old Marlin 22 Rifle hadn’t been stolen some years ago.

  37. My dad got a check engine light last week. I used my $15 code reader to scan it and figure out it was related to the MAF sensor. Start looking closer under the hood and his air filter cover wasn't on. The idiots at Jiffy lube installed a new air filter and didn't even put the cover on right. So he was sucking in dirt for a week. I'm thankful I've learned how to work on both vehicles. The only thing I've paid a shop to do recently was an alignment. I would never trust a place like Jiffy Lube.

  38. LOL! I’m $300+ into this “free fix” so far, but really enjoyed the time with my son. He’s starting a career and trying to make a name for himself, so he’s working about 65 hours a week. Between that and his girlfriend, there isn’t a lot of time left for ole dad. I’m glad to help when I can.

  39. Am I the only one that feels like some are making the permitless carry law out to be worse than it is? I know it's not perfect but it still seems like a huge step in the right direction. I am hopeful they clean it up in the future.
