    Just in case anyone needs to know. When you have a record expunged in Tennessee, the state MAILS the orders to TBI and they have up to 60 days to remove it. The mailing process is slow, as we found out. My husband called them on Wednesday to ask how long and was told that if the state had FAXED it, it would have been removed in hours. He told them he had a copy of the orders and could he fax and was told yes. He faxed them at 4:15pm with a cover sheet with his name and phone number. Then on Thursday morning he got a call at 8:15am and was informed that they got the fax and removed it. He asked about the FBI and was told they removed it the same day the state does! We wasn't sure, so he decided to wait 24 hours. Friday morning, he went to Academy Sports, picked out a Glock g43x and submitted the paperwork for the nics check. 15 minutes later he legally purchased his first handgun and skipped off out of the store grinning from ear to ear! Once in the truck, he scheduled his ccw class for this morning. Needless to say, after having a felony since he was 20 years old, 30 years later and he is no longer a felon. Thank you all for your interest and feedback. I hope this helps anyone in the same situation. The attorney we used is Daniel Horwitz in Nashville. Highly recommended.

    Sold Too many purchases lately so putting this one out there since it's just sitting right now. This one started out as a Ruger Mark III 22/45 Target Model that was transformed by Turnbull Restorations. This gun originally had a polymer lower that did not have grip panels. I bought another Mark III and swapped the lowers so that I could add wood grips to better match the gorgeous Turnbull finish. Grips are cocobolo that look great in my opinion and really take the looks up a notch. I bought this one new a few months ago as new old stock and have not even chambered a round much less shot it. Comes with plastic case, paperwork, gun lock, picatinny rail, the wrap around Hogue grips that were on the donor gun I bought and 3 mags. Feel free to PM with any questions. $450 Will ship for $25

    Ok here is what they found. She had an artery almost totally blocked and the doctors did an angioplasty balloon repair to re open the artery and start the blood flowing back to her heart muscle. They will do a follow up in 2 weeks with another arteriagram and if it shows signs of any changes they will stint that artery at that time. I found out doctors have two options when they do this procedure and as best we can tell the doctors did not stint it this time when they could have performed both the angioplasty and stint at same time. I was dissappointed to hear that, but they are the doctors making the decisions. She is at home now with Tommy staying with her. Weak but out of pain. Prayers are still appreciated

    Another vote for the Springfield Range Officer. The absolute best bang for the buck that meets your criteria. First 1911 should Must be a .45acp. Anything less is depriving yourself of the true 1911 experience.

    Perhaps a Springfield Range Officer. There are several offerings in the family in both .45 and 9mm. Usually around $800 or less for the basic model. https://www.springfield-armory.com/products/1911-range-officer-45-acp/ https://www.springfield-armory.com/products/1911-range-officer-9mm/#PI9129L

    Two different discussions here.... 1. Close distance sims rounds hurt. I've done a fair amount of work in the 0-5 foot distance envelope with both airsoft and sims and have been shot with them at contact distance numerous times. It is not fun. But the object of the exercise was not to have fun it was to work on surviving close distance lethal force problems. Should the teachers have been shot with sims rounds ? I can make an argument for it and against it. 2. As to it causing them PTSD? You know part of the problem is that you have liberal teachers and school administrators who have never been in a fist fight trying to have a say in how to STOP KILLERS. "Conflict resolution" only works if there is a "conflict" that can be mediated....an active shooter is not there to negotiate or come to a settlement...he is there to kill. Victory for him is not getting a concession from the other side...it is stacking up corpses. So it might not be a bad idea for those teachers and administrators to be exposed (in a training environment where they will not be actually killed for real) to this level of violence so they will get their minds right as what REALLY will limit body counts in a school shooting event. Capitulation and negotiation and "feeling the misunderstood youth's pain" is not going to stop someone whose goal is to stack up corpses. Only an overwhelming application of lawful moral lethal violence will.

    I have come across two Uberti 1866's. They were distributed by America Remembers. They celebrated the American Bison. the 2 are consecutive serial numbers, 86 & 87. They have the original boxes and certificates of authenticity. They originally sold for well over $2000.00. We are offering them for $1399.00 each. Call or come buy to get more information on these and other great guns. Jonathan, 931-714-2859. As always, in house financing is available on all firearms.

    I need to rant! I am a proud member of the NRA, I am 100% for everything they stand for and the work they do to ensure our rights our protected. I am a life member, I would wholeheartedly recommend my friends join, but NRA, STOP WITH THE DAMN SPAM! Emails, mails, telephone calls! They are worse than those Chinese Bank Of America scam calls. Just stop! Spend MY money on folks that are not members, spend it on advertising, spend it on more perks for me! I had a "Director" of the NRA call me up a couple of weeks ago, I told her the same exact thing. Just non stop, forced down my throat spam. Stop it! *Rant Over*

    Let me introduce you to The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF). I think they've done more for the 2nd Amendment in the courts over the last ten (10) or twelve (12) years. The NRA has focused more on the legislative side. https://www.saf.org/ I am a member of NRA and SAF.

    I got this on a trade from a member here a while back and decided to sell it instead of taking it out to shoot. I was told it had only been fired a few times and it looks that way. No holster wear, grips look great, no blemishes, etc... I looked it up a while back and I think this one was produced in '79 or the early 80's? No lock! I'll be glad to send more pics if anyone is interested. No trades and will sell for $800 and includes original box, paperwork, wax paper, etc...

    If this passes, it will cause lose of reciprocity with other states, due to the decreased training requirement. And I'm against it because of this. If the legislature wants to do something, pass constitutional carry.

    Fun and cheap to shoot CZ 527 carbine 7.62x39 with youth stock which is about 1 inch shorter than the standard version. It is about 5.6 lbs weight only, very handy for kids or adult deer hunting in the mountain or woods. Beautiful walnut stock. In fact I feel the shorter stock is better for adult in winter because it offsets extra thickness of the coat. Come with set trigger, regular trigger is tuned to 3 lb, set trigger 1 lb. shoot 30 rounds to sight it in, 1moa with Federal Powershok @100 yards. $480 gun only, ring and scope not included. Cash deal, no trade. Meet at Cool Spring Academy.

    Sorry to hear about your forced move. I'm sure the area your'e in, housing is crazy compared to Cookeville. To anybody starting out, not just speaking as a Realtor but a former renter, longterm homeowner, former landlord and soon to be again landlord........ 90% of the time if you can swing it and plan on staying put at least 5 years. BUY! Little or no down payment or lower income? The govt. can assist with USDA loans or VA backed loans. (some restrictions apply). You guys that have good income, good credit???? What are you waiting for? Wish I could go back in time...... I'd be Rich, all the money I pissed away on worthless junk if I'd have bought a second or even third home earlier and been getting renters to pay the mortgage????? Anyway, don't say nobody ever told you.

    Springfield has a lot of good options, a was mentioned. I'd also encourage you to check out Rock Island Armory and Citadel, and spend the balance of your budget either on customization (after you've shot it enough to know what you want to change, and why) or on ammo. Feeding a 9mm is generally cheaper than a .45acp and the power to weight ratio makes shooting a steel 9mm very pleasant.

    And here it is, in all it's glory! Will shoot it the afternoon, first impressions? The slider is like silk and the grip just feels awesome. They did a good job with this firearm and I am totally a SIG fan boy now. So much so that I want to swap my PPQ (which is outstanding) for a 9mm or .45 Sig. Amazing how the right customer experiencing can change your outlook!

    I have absolutely no idea on the shoulder surgery, but I'd maybe consider a small frame, small caliber revolver for weak side carry. No slide to worry about, no tap-&-rack, just point and pull. You'd be amazed how quickly you can learn to shoot left handed with a pistol. Your subconscious takes over and aligns the sight to your dominant eye instantly. The tougher part is learning to manipulate the gun from the holster with your weird hand, but that comes with practice. I'm far from being an expert on, well, anything, but I reckon that something like one of the hammerless Smiths or a Ruger LCR in .38spl in a VERY simple, slip holster should see you right.

    The 2.0 trigger is an improvement over the 1.0 without doubt. I promised I would shoot my 2.0 for a good while before monkeying with parts.......promise broken. I put in the flat-faced, forward set trigger kit in this past week-end. Just wow! I have had at least a half dozen 'gun guys' try this trigger out, all with the same impression. What an improvement. Pull wt can be changed by reference to the Apex flow chart that accompanies the kit. Mine by trigger gauge runs 3.3#. One can bump it up to over 6. Very sharp trigger break, no creep, no stack. Great reset. Can highly recommend it, and yes there is a difference that is worth the money.

    Well I finally got the word from my landlord and he wants me to move by June so he can renovate this cottage I live in. He said he will be done with the other 2 units and ready to begin working on this one. At least he is giving me a fair amount of time to move. I have never heard of a property Landlord actually moving people out of rented places so he can remodel them. Normally they wait till they are empty and then remodel them. I have lived here 19 years and never been a day late on rent and seldom ask him to fix anything except the central AC/heat unit. I fix small things rather that bother him but evidently none of that matters to him so I will be gone from here by June. Moving out in the country into a small cottage that my SIL and daughter own that is located behind their house about 50 yards. I will probably like it out there but hate the hassle of moving. Oh well at least I will be able to do some shooting out there. They own about 10 acres with a steep hill on one side that I should be able to set up a small range on. If I dissappear from the site for a while I will be back here soon as I get set back up........

    Four bad Kahrs? My only experience with Kahr is a CM-9 that I purchased about 7 years ago. It has been perfect right out of the box, I know they recommend a 200 round break-in to be considered reliable, but not a single issue from the first shot. That was about 1500 rounds ago.

    I live outside the city limits of Columbia. The rules are: My land = my rules. I shoot when ever I want and nothing much can be said about it. I however am not an A-hole. I try to be curious to my neighbors. This essentially means suppressors for as many guns as possible.

    Most knowledgeable trainers would argue that a canine that’s trained to bite is far less likely to bite out of fear/reaction than an untrained canine. These dogs know when, why, and how to bite. There’s no chance of getting mine to bite without an act of aggression. There’s definitely a chance that a canine doesn’t do well with the work and may not have the head for it, and it’s up to a responsible owner/trainer to decide what the dog is capable of learning. They are also taught to bite and hold instead of chewing and ripping. I couldn’t stand letting @ReeferMac having the only puppy. My next monster came home Sunday.

    I haven't had shoulder surgery but have spoken with several people who have, as I also have had shoulder issues. Their answers are 6 months to 75% (which means mostly normal just being careful about some things) and 12 months to 100%. Unfortunately, it's a really slow recovery. None regretted it and all said it was better once healed, but it's a long road.

    For sale is a S&W 686-P Classic 7-shot .357magnum. I bought it used and put about 30 rounds through it. Comes with 4 hks speedloaders and about 40 rounds of mixed 357 speer golddot and Hornsby 357 xtp. Handgun permit holders only. This is the easiest way for me to know you aren’t a felon
