    If she's in the market for a female instructor who shoots shotguns from the shoulder, I volunteer! We'd love to have her train with us over in Murfreesboro. Happy to work with her on handguns too if that's her preference.

    This year made my 2nd year ever fishing for Crappie and my best year of fishing for them. I might catch bigger later on but for Watts Bar these are dang good fish and my personal best. Dont know the weight just got the measurements. The black went 16 1/4in and 12.5in Girth. The white went 15in with a 12in girth. All I know is they sure are good to look at so the $310 was well spent. I used a old piece of barn wood and stained the edges with Minwax Red Mahogany 225 to get that burnt look on the outer edges. And used Cocunut Oil for the rest to keep the color lighter.

    Haha, his "handling" of a coordinated rigged political/media assassination was an impossible task. As Rahm Emanuel said, "never waste a good crisis." They failed with Russia, Kavanuagh, Media, CIA, FBI, etc. If it takes a pseudo pandemic, mixed with outright civil unrest/rebellion in Democrat cities just to make his reelection questionable ... I have some optimism. The Dems have gone completely over the edge just to get to close to even. That says a lot. I could be wrong and I have no idea how it will play out in these uncharted waters or how far the dems will go to completely break a system they can't "win", but I heard this stuff before about Trump's possibilities and the naysayers (even the loud ones here) weren't just slightly wrong, they ended up being incredibly wrong. Hang on, it will be interesting if nothing else.

    If anyone has any doubts about the intentions of the democratic party or if anyone is still holding on to the notions that the party today resembles ANYTHING at all the party that their grandparents voted for then it is time for a reality check. The election this fall largely is a referendum on the America that we grew up in and whether people want to continue to live in the most prosperous country in the history of mankind or whether you want to blow it all up and try a form of government (socialism/communism) that has failed and led to misery and genocide everywhere it has been instituted. The choice is yours.

    I don't believe anything I hear on the news. The weather forecast is the most accurate segment, and we all know how wrong it usually is.

    I do 3D printing in PLA, ABS in an assortment of colors. I charge $5 per print hour. For larger prints I can do custom pricing so you're not breaking the bank. If you have anything you want brought to life send me a PM. I can also do image lithophanes at $15 per image or two for $25. I do flat rate shipping so I can specify the rate for the item, but flat rate envelopes and small boxes range 7.5$ to 13$ Below are some images of work I've done recently. The images below include a reusable dust mask, a 3D model of the moon with accurate cratering rendered from a lunar map and turned into a lamp, a small clamp, and a costume 'arc reactor' like from iron man.

    That is ridiculous I completely agree with @DaveTN that it’s the wrong gun if you can’t use the sights. This is coming from an active female shooter who has had to put down 20+ different guns cause they don’t work for one reason or another. If she can confidently shoot the gun from the shoulder and even if the recoil is a lot but she can handle it I don’t see a problem. But if she thinks it is that big of a problem then there are other guns... To win this debate rather than print out our comments and give a PowerPoint at a family dinner I would buy them a training session with a younger female instructor who will set the record straight.

    Not everyone will remember Sabre Defense but they were a top tier military supplier right out of Nashville for years. Unfortunately, the feds did not cater to some speculative back door sales and yanked the wheels off the whole operation. Before that happened, my late buddy bought this tack driver off a cable tv show that aired lonng time ago. Anyways, he wanted it because they were making 400 yard shots easy. I got it from his wife after his passing and it has been a semi safe queen. I have run maybe 4 mags through it and i don't think my buddy ever did shoot it. I can say it shoots way better than i can with Fiochi Extrema 50 grainers. Given recent events, i must liquidate some of my possessions. If you are interested, PM works best. I will take $2,000 as pictured or $1,500 without the Vortex 4x24 Strike Eagle with mount. Middle TN.... Spring Hill, Dickson area

    I had the opportunity to interview Charlie back in 06 when he was touring in Iraq. Also got to shoot (photos) the concert he did for the troops that night. What an amazing man... in his 70's, flying into a war zone so he can visit with and entertain the troops...and he worked like a dog the entire time. He did two hours of meetings and interviews before the concert, played HARD for 2 or 3 hours, stayed til well past midnight signing autographs, and then was up before dawn to attend a sunrise church service. Then he got on a helo, went to an even worse part of Iraq and did it again. It was a humbling experience watching him work. A great man who will be sorely missed. Oh, the concert was for the 48th BCT (or whatever they were calling Brigades at that point) out of Georgia, all of whom were about to head back home. He closed the concert w/ "The Devil Went Down to GA" and the roar that went up from the crowd was like nothing you've ever heard. It was a physical presence that felt like being hit by a wave in the ocean. Incredible experience.

    Stock or not is irrelevant. If she shoots it from the hip don’t stand behind her or you might be 3D printing something for yourself. A permit “trainer” suggesting someone fire a shotgun from the hip is about the stupidest thing I’ve heard in a...today.

    The doctor said he hasn’t briefed Trump in almost two months, and has only seen him once in The White House recently. Trump is calling all the shots on the virus. It really doesn’t matter who is in charge now. It seems as a country we’ve decided to ride the wave. We have believers, nonbelievers and those in between. I feel like I’m watching a game show hoping no one else I know becomes ill.

    While I don’t believe everything he has said, early on he said that not him or anybody else really knows much about this virus. Everybody is just learning as they go. As time goes on and they get more data, what they thought initially, may not be true anymore. I know he has straight up lied to us (concerning masks specifically), but some things they are just learning as time goes on. And when they say they really don’t know, I believe them on that.

    No. Counting total cases makes sense. And as a result of that method the lethality rate should also be low. It's a bad bug no doubt. And it likes to pick on oldsters and health impared individuals, just like every flu bug that's ever been around. The problem here is that every politician from every party is trying to use this to their advantage. Hang em all I say.....

    And you think I don't? We are so focused on trying to protect everyone, when it's really just a small amount that truly needs protection. People in this country think very short term in response to things. The cry is always, "we have to do SOMETHING!" They never consider if the something is actually the best thing long term, or really even short term. Every one is quick to mask up but very few have asked, is this good for our bodies long term? Is this putting us at risk of other health issues (which I've already seen come up with my sister due to wearing a mask.) Is people wearing mask causing people who shouldn't be out taking risk to be out because now they feel "safe"? We have become too "clean" of a society and people are afraid to get any germs and that's now coming back to haunt us. Is there a middle ground, yes. Are we way past that middle ground, yes. Again, I have no issue with anyone wearing a mask if they desire to. I really don't. But people do not have the right to force health decisions, like wearing a mask, on other people. I care about people's right to chose for themselves how they take care of their own health. I may disagree with it sometimes, but I respect their right to chose.

    I seem to recall hearing/reading the merits of using FMJ's for .380 caliber SD in order to get enough penetration to offset over garments. Your mileage may vary.

    8 years ago my oldest (17 at the time) went to the Old City with two her friends and one of her friend’s mom for dinner. Later that evening, she was ready to come home and called me to come and get her. As I was going out the door, I picked up my Colt Agent .38 and tucked it in the pocket of my hoody. When I got there, I texted her to come to the car. While I was waiting, a gentleman attempted to open the passenger side door, which was locked. He then hit the window with his fist, as I pulled the Colt. As soon as he saw it, he put up his hands and backed up and walked off. My daughter and her two friends, after witnessing all that and walked up to the van. They were smart enough not to get close enough to be involved in the situation. I carry something everyday. It might be a LCP, or a 442 or a PT111 G2, or a XDs .45ACP, but I always have something on my person.

    The left wants your soul and the government to provide for you , the right for you to cling to archaic notions of morality and the government to provide for you. Both require absolute control over us serfs.

    I'd venture to say the percentage of folks that put 35,000+ rounds on one gun in its lifetime is very small. Basically the average Joe shouldn't worry about the round count life of their .40 pistols. I know I'm not.

    I'm having an outpatient procedure done tomorrow at the hospital so they had me go in Tuesday for a covid test. All I can say is "damn!!!". They put that swab in my nose so far I was expecting to see brain tissue on it when they pulled it out. BTW, it came back negative, so at least I didn't have it when they did the test

    If I have to go out in public I'll wear one. It's my choice. What I do resent is all the armchair doctors acting like they know everything when it comes down to wearing one or not as well as being told I must. I'm old, have underlying heath issues as well as my wife. Even the health "professionals" can't agree and have in fact lied to the public so who knows for sure what's real or what's not? I don't advocate shutting things down cause if I were young I'd rather be working and taking precautions than sitting on my ass on the dole collecting government cheese. Since I'm old with underlying issues I choose to stay at home as much as possible. It's not like I'm bored at home with nothing to do. There is always more to do than I like.

    Other questions that come to mind: What other advice did this instructor give? Was the rest of it better than the advice in question, or worse? Might be worth your girlfriend and the others taking a class from a different instructor...

    From an officer I personally know, while he was working undercover he deployed his .380 with hollow points to shoot at a perp through a windshield. I do not remember the flavor of the ammunition. The rounds lodged in the windshield without fully penetrating. We later got a cracked windshield from Safelite Auto Glass to run our own tests. Although various hollow points had variable results with penetration, some going through the windshield from roughly 3-7 yards and others not penetrating, even in some cases rounds from the same box of ammo, ALL of the ball ammo penetrated the laminated glass and burst the plastic jug of water placed behind the glass. We also had some fun that day testing various rounds of ammunition on ballistic drywall we had gotten a scrap piece of from the construction of the local VA hospital. That ballistic drywall is amazing stuff. I'm not sure what it says though for the amount of money spent to do the entire lobby of the VA center with that drywall, yet I digress...

    That's why I got one. Not too big, not too small. I wanted a hammer rather than a spike, much more useful for me. Mine had handle issues when I got it, the head had peeled a bunch of the wood off during installation. There's no way whoever did it didn't notice. I emailed them a pic and they sent me another handle. Luckily I was able to fix the original handle so now I have a spare.

    Every doctor on the boob tube has an opinion about the virus, and they will gladly state their opinion to whoever will listen or broadcast it. The channel you're watching does have an effect on what is said as well and who is on that particular channel.

    I carry a Kershaw kryo which gets most of the abuse. I also carry a small Boker folder for more precision work. My Leatherman has a blade but I rarely use it. I've also got a CRKT Woods Chogan thats proven to be a quite handy little camp axe.

    A little research on Fauci at the start of this told me all I needed to know about him. He's made a fortune since the 80's being the weighing in "expert". He's essentially a politician with DR at the beginning of his name. Trump tossing Fauci out after he became the face of Covid would have only brought more scrutiny to Trump because as of now we can't blame Trump for Covid only for how he's poorly handled it all. That was inevitable anyway though because he hasn't done 1 single thing right since day 1 , right ? I'll make the same prediction I have several times through all this all the way back to the beginning both on here and to others when the subject arises. We, as a country, need to be prepared to endure this political theater all the way until the election. A 2nd shutdown IS coming and WILL happen. Regardless of whatever party you side with the importance of mail in ballots matters. It will be the new show when Covid and BLM run out of steam the days following the election. Whichever candidate gets in it will be an excuse for the other side to exclaim how that candidate got in and in Trumps case new fresh investigations to hammer on for the next four years. Unfortunately at the end of the day WE THE PEOPLE are the ones getting screwed in the end.....

    Just a suggestion if you are trying to decide what red dot is right for you. There's this pistol instructor guy on Youtube under "Sage Dynamics". He's really experienced and knowledgeable, and has some great videos covering and testing many red dot brands, the pros and cons. You can tell he doesn't have a horse in the race and he tells it like it is.

    I always keep a pen and pad of paper handy. If they start fast talking or I can’t keep I ask them to confirm or repeat what I heard. Quaint and old-fashioned I know, but it’s worked since the beginning of time.

    Back when I was working multiple jobs, one of which was at night. I stopped to get gas in Madison (don't do that BTW) at 2 am. Had three guys circle the station, park on the far side, then two flanked me at distance while the third made an indirect/direct line towards me. The flags went of as I was the only one there. Didn't have my gun on me but it was in my front seat. I made eye contact with the first guy, grabed my gun but kept it out of sight, and began planning attack priorities if they continued. Fortunately when I didn't break eye contact with the lead guy, they all stopped about 20 feet out, stared at me for a minute, then turned and retreated in the same way they approached. They got back in the car and left without showing plates. I don't know if they had ill intent, but that was the first time I fully understood the importance of have an equalizer present. I would have been completely helpless in that scenario otherwise.

    I was pretty sure you had played with Charlie at some point in your career. Like I've said before, I'd love to sit and listen to you talk about your musical adventures and escapades. lol Have you considered writing about it? Really, I'm sure a bunch of us would buy copies. But back on track...I think I've made posts about Charlie Daniels here already, and I can't tell you how many on FB. But Charlie deserves every single one. A good Christian man, a true America loving patriot, a great musician, and a true southern gentleman. Just a good ol' boy in all regards. I got to enjoy his music since his early days I think. First heard him at a Chili Cookoff. I think he may have gotten paid in chili. lol But got to see I think 3 live shows. He never disappointed, except maybe not playing long enough at the last Jam I saw. But didn't matter. He was, is, and always will be great in my eyes. Miss ya' Charlie. Now take a break, and Rest in Peace.

    Lets get serious, if covid 19 was really as deadly as proclaimed, do you think wearing a paper, cloth or make shift mask would be sufficient to stop it?
