  1. I'm set....and have a great story to share. https://nashvillemobilemechanic.co/ The guy who runs this service (one man shop) was able to come directly to my location, get in my garage, because his service vehicle is a Ford Ranger kitted out as a mobile toolbox. Where AAA and Firestone couldn't meet the clearance of my garage, this guy saved the day (or at least kept me from pushing the vehicle with someone steering it in neutral out into the street). Super friendly, and was able to swap in a new battery for me no problem. I 'm happy to put money from my pocket into his business account for the services rendered, and glad I found him. I love this kind of entrepreneurial spirit in striking out solo and putting in the work with his own two hands. Says he's staying pretty busy, which I can see in a booming Nashville Metro Area. Despite all my feelings of woe about the economy at large, I think this guy will stay in good shape come what may. Truck is humming along. He said the alternator and everything else he looked at while changing the battery are good to go. Time to get back to work. Thanks again to all for the knowledge you shared.

  2. Range Report : Disclaimer: I'm old and not in the best of health. So don't expect precision shooting. I got it to the range today. Beautiful day. temps in the mid-70s and a light breeze. I decided that rather than just stand there and punch holes in paper that I'd take it to the action range. There I could draw from the holster, shoot steel and move around. Give it a good workout. ;) Here's the range bay as I set it up. 9 targets ranging from 10 to 25 yards. Ammo was mix of what I had on hand. Winchester White Box 115 & 124 gr FMJ Remington Golden Sabre 124 gr. Handload 124 gr LRN Handload 124 gr plated FP. All told I put about 300 rounds through the gun. Overall, I'm very pleased with the gun. Its no tack driver, but plenty combat accurate. The trigger is a bit heavy, but Hi-Powers generally are. It is quite smooth though. The sights are excellent. They give a well defined sight picture and are easy to pick up. I really love the shape of the thumb safety. Positive clicks on and off, big enough to easily work, but not so big as to be bulky. Springfield hit a home run with this design. I did have three malfunctions. Two failure to fully eject and one feed ramp jam. All of these were with my reloads, so I suspect it was the ammo at fault. Generally I started from the draw and just ran the targets until the mag was empty. The steel was easy at all ranges, just couldn't miss. I got good A & B zone hits on the silhouettes at all distances Although they were scattered about a bit. Here's the paper target which was at 10 yards Bear in mind that this was with several types of ammo. It does seem that I need to adjust the rear sight slightly right. I also manged to chase an empty Dr. pepper bottle around the range a bit. Conclusion: Its a Hi-Power with all the desired upgrades. I like it!

  4. I am selling my Springfield Emissary. It is the 5 inch barrel, .45 model. The frame is also cerakoted instead of being the standard two tone. Aero Knox stealth grips are installed but the original grips are included as well. I am including 2 10rd Wilson Combat magazines, an 8rd Wilson Combat magazine, the original box, original "grenade" pattern grips, and 100rds of .45 ammo. It hasn't fired many rounds and is in great condition. Price is $1000 and I'm not interested in trades at the moment I am in the Chattanooga/Cleveland area but I don't mind a drive within reason.

  5. Yup-that one has all kinds of I have a Henry H006M in .41 mag I have standing in the corner of the bedroom- Fitted with a Skinner Peep-ghost ring with no insert- It will shoot a 2 inch group at 50 yards with no eyeball help- I also like the traditional appeal-

  6. My daughter decided to go with the birdshead grip and the matt stainless look. I like the looks of it too. I figured that Ruger would be easier to contact with help in case there was ever a problem. Ruger sent me a very hard to find spring one time on a 20 year old pistol that isn't made anymore so that stands out to me about great Ruger customer service. Thanks to you members who provided information and opinions. It helped a bunch.

  9. Just because someone isn’t stable, doesn’t mean that there isn’t something to be learned from the writings or words of those who commit heinous acts. Even if it is just to familiarize yourself with the dangerous rhetoric to be aware of it in others. I haven’t read the whole manifesto yet, but I’m working my way through it. That said, sometimes the unstable may act in ways that are wrong, but be essentially correct in their ideas. (Not say that’s the case here at all.) Ted Kaczynski is a prime example of that. I will not endorse his campaign of mail bombings in any way, but read “Industrial Society and it’s Future” and tell me that Kaczynski didn’t have it pegged correctly.

  10. Not a lot beyond it being a concern. Most of our loads are contracted so that our customers pay for fuel. Or at least most of it. It's all hurting though. The cost of new trucks, tires, repairs on existing trucks, etc. All those things are substantially inflated right now. If you know any kids graduating high school that wanted to learn a trade, diesel mechanics are in high demand and make a lot from what I understand. More overtime than you could possibly want I assume. The next year or two will be interesting I bet.

  15. After some discussions on here I decided to go to windrock range today for some much needed relaxing shooting. I was very pleased with the range there. Talked to the owner for a few minutes, very pleasant and personable. I like how the range was set up and met some new fellow shooters. Definitely a place I will be back to soon. one of the pistols that I shot was my Rex Zero 1. Man what a beast 400 rounds of steel ringing fun with zero hiccups. The recoil was light and the trigger in double action was very nice. I highly recommend both for inexpensive fun

  17. Starting to have my gut get some confirmation about a recession, even if economists still need to put 2 and 2 together. It's one thing when big tech stocks take a body blow. They have wide swings up and down that aren't abnormal, and they were insanely overvalued these last few years as safe places turned into tar pits for good returns. Seeing them fall is a painful but natural result of the current monetary policy. And aside from Amazon, they don't give a good picture of the economy that's centered around moving product. Walmart, Target, Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Tractor Supply Company...they all got pasted after posting their earnings for Q1. Easy to Google half a hundred articles offering analysis. But I simplify things and look at these companies (and others like them) to think about the spending and consumption habits of everyday people. When these companies have issues, we're not circulating product from producer, to retailer, to consumer as we should be. Like your vascular system, a healthy flow is needed for the body to function. These companies should be able to post steady income over time in normal conditions if the business is being run properly. But normal was so 2019. Their quarterly postings show that the supply chain crunch is still around, the labor market continues to be out of whack, and inflation has become the walls closing in on both companies and consumers alike. When consumers are squeezed and the price elasticity of supply gets funky, recessions happen while companies figure out how to adjust. Economists and government tend to lag in recognizing this while pouring over data. I still continue to think we're in the unrealized/unannounced phase of a recession. Maybe sooner or later someone in a suit at a podium on TV will tell us what truckers, warehouse workers, and regional managers are seeing in real time now.

  18. I've known I had to have one of these from the first moment I heard of them. Been looking hard for over year and nobody has had any one in my area. :mad: This morning I called all the LGSs and still no luck. A couple of days ago Chucktshoes that he had seen one at Cypress Creek Outdoors in Dyersburg. So just on a whim I called to see if it was still there. It WAS! With nothing better to do on a Saturday afternoon, I jumped in my truck and headed North. I'm now the proud owner of a brand spankin' new Springfield Armory SA-35! BTW: price was MSRP at $699. Not being a fan of heavily checkered grips, I put a nice set of smooth Houge Pau Ferros on it. Looks great! I hope to get it to the range next week. Range report to follow. And here's an updated family portrait. Thanks Chuck! BTW: that's a very nice store. Everything an outdoorsman might need. Very friendly people too. Had a nice chat with the saleslady while I was there. If you're in the area, check it out.

  19. That’s likely a battery that’s just too low to hold a charge - maybe with a bad cell that’s “diluting” the ability of the portable pack to start it. You could pull the battery cables and hook them up directly to the jumper cables. If it starts - easy fix.

  22. With rulings such as Bruen coming down the line, i suspect that attempting to go after guns won’t gain much steam. Now if the reports I am reading are accurate, the security officer shot at the dickhead and hit his body armor. Then was fatally shot himself. If that is correct, then I expect body armor to be on the radar of “we must do something.” Not to be too tinfoilhat, but holy crap does this manifesto read like a gun grabber wish list in the pages and pages of gear talk. Along with the fact that the FBI has a history of targeting neuro-divergent folks for its “investigations” and well, I wonder if there isn’t an agent somewhere crapping his pants about things getting out of hand and attempting to cover up his fingerprints.

  26. Dash cameras are awesome and they sure help officers that are working a crash. It sometimes shows who is lying and who is not. I was working a crash where one truck t-boned another. Both said they each had a green light. The victim showed me his dash camera and he clearly had a green light and the other truck ran the red light. The guy that ran the red light lied to me after I gave him another chance. I then showed him other guy's video and he tucked his tail between his legs after that.

  27. I have one in each of the vehicles I drive. It has saved my butt in one accident in La Vergne. But for yesterday it just shows how quick things can go side ways. Glad the audio recording was turned off on it as it would have one long bleep. Just as the guy I was on the phone with.

  28. Edit: Price drop! Alright TGOers I'm posting this one again. I talked myself out of it last time but the dog needs a procedure so back up it goes (I could make a bad joke here about another way this gun could solve my dog problem but that is in poor taste and I wouldn't dare...) I want to be very clear that this firearm runs 100% but was not super well taken care of by the previous owner. There are cosmetic blemishes here and there which I have tried to capture in the pictures and the price ALREADY REFLECTS THESE. All that aside, this little 1911 has been one of my favorite blasters for a couple years and it hasn't had a single issue in the couple thousand or so rounds I've put through it after cleaning her up and replacing a few parts (particularly a new WC Bulletproof extractor and new wolff recoil spring, I forget what weight but it was whatever DW recommends). The barrel is 100% and everything locks up very nicely. Will come with the DW box, no papers, and 4 assorted mags including a WC, a CMC, and a couple DWs. Ftf in or around Middle TN, HCP flash required. Thanks as always! -V

  31. Many years ago, I had a coon take up residence in my attic. I called TWRA who put me in touch with a local trapper. The trapper set live traps and caught the coon fairly quickly. No charge either. I can only guess that he made money on the pelt, but he never really said what happens after they're caught. I honestly don't know if anybody still does this, but it won't hurt to ask. One thing that trapper taught me is always cover your trap with something. A small tarp will do. He had wooden boxes built the perfect size for the trap to slide into. He said that raccoons are smart. They know a trap when they see one. However, they're so curious that they will investigate any dark hole they find.

  34. WWII ended 77 years ago. Many of the milsurps we came to accept as "normally" priced came from that era, or before, and were declared surplus either shortly after that conflict or in the next few decades that followed. The flood of older, Comm-bloc weapons entered the markets during the 90's after the fall of the communist regimes in Russia and eastern Europe. The stockpiles of those weapons have either been depleted by now, or are held in countries from which future importation is forbidden by our laws, or theirs, and in some cases by hostile relations between our country and others. We will never see masses of cheap, easily available milsurp weapons again, as the period after WWII saw most countries adopt automatic or select fire rifles and carbines, none of which are legal to import or possess. That's not likely to change under any future conditions. If you want to play the milsurp game, you have to pay current pricing and use all avenues to locate whatever you want, pickings in local gun stores and pawn shops will be slim compared to even the limited availability online. Those who spend their time complaining about prices and the inconvenience of not being able to walk into a gun show and pick through barrels of milsurps, all the while waxing poetic about the "good old days" will be left empty handed ...

  38. If I'm reading correctly you are referencing ORSA (Oak Ridge)? If so, I am a member at ORSA. I've been a member since 2006. I primarily shoot at Range USA simply because it's so close. But we meet as a small group at least 2 times a month and shoot on the Action Pistol Range at ORSA. There are a lot of hoops to jump through as in attending General orientation class and a specific orientation class for the Action Pistol Range (ACP). AS best I can recall no rifles or shotguns on the ACP and you must use only competition approved targets like USPSA and IDPA targets. But you can work from the holster, set up and run scenario based targeting, can run pistol caliber carbines and .22 rifles (I shoot my RDS 10/22 frequently), and shoot steel as long as no aren't destroying things or missing up stages set for matches. As long as a person is safe and responsible you have a lot of leeway. There are various matches pretty much every weekend on the ACP...so plan your trips accordingly. IDPA-USPSA-Cowboy-Steel-3 Gun etc. There are multiple rifle and pistol ranges as well as a 15 yard indoor range (I S.O. there once a month). Nothing fancy in the Indoor range and much more restrictive than it once was. Lots of cameras Big Brother style ...probably one of the negative aspects you mentioned. It is what it is... I've met a lot of great people at ORSA...a lot of great people at Range USA as well. ORSA has an application at their website. Price has increased, the new application mentions a background check and carry permit...I just skimmed over it. And you need a sponsor which is easy. Windrock is another good place to shoot up in Oliver Springs. I think they have a website and "book-face" thing. Randy Harris and AJ hold training classes there periodically and I understand Windrock has a great Back-up Gun Match. I'm getting too old and gimpy to run and gun anymore but still make frequent use of ORSA and Range USA. Hope you guys find what you are looking for. Jamie
