  1. I was lucky enough to receive from the CMP a service grade, all matching 1945 Colt 1911A1. The slide and frame finish matches correctly and all the internals are correct for the year. I wanted to give the CMP a big shout out from one who collects U.S. military. For those of you who want a piece of our military history, check out the CMP website. The minute this .45 touched my hands the price doubled or tripled. You cant beat that anywhere I know of. After I pass I’d love to be a fly on the wall watching the fight from my nephews as to get this weapon.

  2. I should have introduced my self last week but I was so happy to make a knife after two years got carried away. We are finally in our home in Maryville, moved in end of June and I started to set up my shop, still have some equipment to uncrate and electric to run. I was a machinist, tool maker, machine builder for 45+ years, did a lot of stuff with metal. Maybe 16 years ago sitting in hunting camp at night and my brother is asking me to fix a knife for him (gave it to someone to sharpen and they screwed it up). so I make him a new one, took a liking to it, and here we are! (Short version.) Been making knives ever since. Anyway greetings to all. Have a new hunting knife coming thought you might like to see some of the process. Gluing and pinning the handle scales on. Its D2 steel, good stuff, should be done next week if my wife doesn't make me do other things! I do knife sharpening also if any one needs that service. Giddy up!

  3. For sale Ruger mini-14 in stainless with wood. Comes with one 5 round mag. The 184- serial number has it shipped from Ruger in 1985. The stock looks good as can be seen in the pics and the bore and chamber are also in good shape. At this point I would prefer a face to face sale. Located in NE TN. Price $900.00

  5. I have a long-standing policy of not dancing on the graves of the departed with whom I had very serious disagreements or distaste for. I also have a very closely related policy of not placing laurels upon the graves of those who are undeserving of them. I will simply say what I always say, my condolences for those who feel loss at his passing.

  6. I have the updated list of pistols & still have some .40 s&w & .45 acp left. Please send any questions you may have. Due to serious health reasons, I'm selling my gun collection. I've been in & out of the hospital so local meeting is preferred, but will travel when able.

I can't list everything, but will include holsters & gear that go with each handgun when possible. I'm open to offers, but need to sell quickly if I can. I am located in Oneida (Scott County). Thank you. HK USP 45 Compact w/Talon grips, factory case & three factory mags. Two 8 rnd & one extended 10 rnd. $1,000 Stainless Ruger SR9 compact.

  8. Maybe they should be expected to. These same actors want to hang a gunowner out to dry when someone steals their gun and uses it in a crime. Responsibility goes both ways.

  9. I've tried to own a Sig P320 twice in the past. I bought a P320 Compact very early on and thought the grip felt like a bar of soap. I would absolutely compare Sig's efforts to homogenize the size and shape of the human hand to Apple's own efforts to model the "average human ear" with the first generation iPhone Ear Buds. They didn't fit me worth a damn and neither did the Sig. Fast forward a few years and I bought a Sig P320 Compact X-Series RXP. It had a much better grip but it still somehow felt slippery and weird to me. I'm one of those weird people who thinks Smith and Wesson did a great thing with the grip texture on the M&P M2.0 even though most folks think it feels like sandpaper. Recently I became aware that Polymer 80 was producing a grip module for the Compact (15-round) and Carry (17-round) size guns. I also became aware that Sig was producing an Carry model intended for law enforcement, called the X-Carry Pro RXP. Like the other RXP that I owned previously, the slide was milled for the Romeo-1 optic and also had rear iron sights. it came in the 17-round Carry grip with three mags and a special "Pro" version of the Romeo-1 that includes a steel shroud around the optic to add some protection to it, and a 6.5MOA dot - which is entirely my preferred size. Most importantly, however... the dudes at C&H Precision Weapons are now producing an adapter plate that allows you to drop a Holosun HE509T optic where the Romeo-1 was supposed to sit. Be still my beating heart! The combination of things resulted in a gun with a near 1911 grip angle, a grip that isn't slippery but also not too rough, and my preferred enclosed-emitter optic. Hell, the factory Sig X-Ray night sights are even perfectly sized to allow a lower 1/3 cowitness for the dot. I should buy a lottery ticket because everything with this combo was just coming up Millhouse. Alright... enough jibber jabber. Here's some gun porn. Click it to make it bigger. I took it to the range this morning and got the dot dialed in. It's a shooter. Oh, here's what it looked like out of the box. This lasted all of about 10 minutes. Not bad, really, but not my jam.

  10. It was headspace problem. I read an article "Dealing with Headspace" by Todd Spotti. I followed his directions on setting up sizing die for my rifle. Back of sizing die 1/2 turn and size a case, try it in rifle. If doesn't chamber screw sizing die down 1/8 turn and try chambering. Keep turning sizing die down until casing chambers. I then reloading 12 LC brass with new sizer die setting and all 12 finished rounds chambered. when I get new front sight I will sight in using these rounds. Thanks for everyones input.

  17. Another anti-gunner, who has told the NRA "We are coming after your money" has no problem making money using guns. Such a hypocrite. Maybe the use of all guns should be banned for all movies. Give them a taste of their own medicine. Tho it would be in bad taste, I think it would be pretty funny if Trump went on SNL and did a Baldwin impersonation sketch, where he randomly shoots people.

  18. We deal with “Hollywood” on a daily basis just watching or even reading the “news” these days. Baldwin Is not to blame and liberals have #### to do with it, but someone is going to pay. The truth will come out.

  21. Not enough information out there yet. I despise anti-gun Baldwin, but don't want to jump to conclusions. The stories I've read make it sound like two people were hit from one discharge. I think most of us are assuming the discharge was from a handgun, but if it were a shotgun then two victims seems more likely. I'll be interested in learning more. Edit an hour later: A news article says that Baldwin was handed the prop gun, and a single round passed through a woman who was killed and struck a man who was not killed. This begs the question of why there was any live ammunition on a movie set. I suppose a long investigation will follow.

  26. Halfway off topic, but close. Growing up in Chattanooga, ours was a two-story house next to a rental house that was a slum. As long as people lived there, the huge rats that infested the house stayed in the rental house. Whenever the house went vacant, the rats came to our house. At the ripe old age of 12, I figured out a solution. I'd open the second story window in the kitchen, and fry a thick piece of bacon and throw it out into the driveway. Then I'd put a .22 Short in the top barrel of my Savage .22/.401 o/u and wait. In a few minutes a rat would come out of the house to "dine." I'd let one start to chow, and then, "POW!" Largest one day take was 28. That house next door remained more fun in the future when it was empty!

  27. I, for one, am not a fan at all of all this. There's nothing wrong with staying small towns and rural. our great state is being ruined, and our politicians are doing all they can to hasten making our state like the the others. Really sad.

  28. Expecting an actor to check and clear a weapon before it is actually used is like expecting a politician to write their own speeches. They have people for that.

  29. Hypocrisy is why. Same reason John blanking Kerry supported an AW ban but keeps a AK-47 himself. Full auto, no less. Rosie (where's the food?) O'Donnell wants guns banned but has armed security. Former columnist Carl Rowan, Sr wanted guns banned yet shot an unarmed teen who dared to use his pool. Sean Penn wants to ban guns yet he carried a 12ga pump when he visited New Orleans after Katrina. There's a list of elite hypocrites 100 miles long when it comes to firearms. "Rules for thee, not for me" is their standard.

  30. More damaging news coming out this morning on the net. Seems Baldwin isn't the innocent victim he's claiming to be (gasp!). Reports are now saying he took the gun out himself for target practice off-set. Chain-of-custody on the gun is where the guilt is going to be but as others mentioned, Hollyweird is perfect at covering their ass. Some of you might remember the death of Vic Morrow & some kids on the Twilight Zone movie set? A helicopter stunt went badly wrong & killed 4-5 people. Not a single person was found criminally negligent afterwards. I hope they hang Alec Baldwin by his tiny little testicles & the victims sue him for all he's worth. He's a skid mark on the underwear of humanity.

  32. I have taken many classes from Shane over the last couple of years and I would high advise anyone that is wanting to learn more about personal protection or emergency medicine to check Shane out. Whether your a new gun owner or a experienced shooter Shane can help you take your game to the next level.

  33. Don't be at all surprised when Baldwin claims to be a completely innocent victim and never accepts any blame what-so-ever. In fact, don't be surprised when he doubles down on his gun control efforts because now he "knows" what its like to take a life. Btw: this azzhole anti-gunner has now killed and injured more people than I have in my 67 years as a gun owner.

  34. Brandon Lee(son of Bruce Lee) was killed on the set of 1994’s ‘The Crow’ while filming his character’s death scene. They had been using live rounds with the powder dumped out for a close-up shot, in which the actor pulls the trigger several times. The primers pushed two slugs into the barrel, after which a blank round was fired, which drove out the bullets and struck Brandon Lee in the chest.

  36. I don’t like the inability to delete ads. It could be worse; Armslist requires a paid subscription not only to see the ad body, but now you can’t even see the price without logging in. A site with as many data breaches as Armslist has a lot of nerve asking for access to my bank account in order to do business there.
