  1. If you aren't the type of person to really keep up with the current law on a daily basis, you could very easily be either within the law or breaking it depending on what day of the week it is. It's getting a bit ridiculous. Just be easier to legalize SBRs and be done with it. That's all they really are anyways.
  2. Not exactly apparel, but any chance of a TGO logo Swell bottle? Im in if they offer tall sizes. Otherwise, I'm stuck with just hats.
  3. I did the opposite. Lived in the country all my life but moved to the city because of work. I took a good paying job, but working 10-12 hours a day and took 1 hr one way to drive to work and back. It was literally eat sleep work repeat. 6 days a week. City isn't as bad as I thought it would be, but still want to move back to outside the city limits but hopefully only 30-45min away now.
  4. I don't know the code, but yes you can in fact carry a loaded handgun in your vehicle legally now. Law recently changed and most cops don't know established law much less recently changed ones. If a cop shoots you just from sight of a gun, there's a whole lot wrong going on there.
  5. While it wasn't exactly like this, I have had this sort of thing happen to me on TGO. I was selling a G27 and guy wanted me give me an additional $300 to drive it up to Brooklyn. First it was $200 extra to drive it to Philadelphia, then changed to $300 to Brooklyn. It was a few years ago but TGO is big enough we attract all sorts of people now.
  6. It's a great can. Griffin makes good stuff. Pretty innovative. They have a 3-lug .22 suppressor. And a 5.56 can that fits a standard A2 birdcage.
  7. I personally don't like it for the fact it's completely sealed. That means no lead bullets, jacketed only. And it's too fat for a pistol. For a carbine only with jacketed bullets it's ok but I think even the TiRant being an old design is better at nearly everything. not a bad suppressor though, if it fits your needs, go with it. I just feel it's more of a niche can than a general purpose pistol cal can.
  8. Smallest 9mm you will find is the Kahr PM9 which is the same size as the MK40 but with polymer frame. The Rohrbaugh R9 is smaller but I believe they were bought out by Remington and are no longer being produced. .380 or smaller opens up many more options. Ruger LCP is the most common but there are many others. For super small, it doesn't get any smaller than a Baby Browning (.25acp). I'm also a fan of the Seecamp pistols for just a bit larger.
  9. I'll be glad when today is over. Might just boycott the internet for the rest of the day.
  10. For a .45 can, I really like the Dead Air Ghost 45. Can be run wet or dry, wiped or not, or full length or short configuration, or any combination of those. Alot of people really like the Silencerco Omega 9k, shortest 9mm can available and quiet, but fatter than I like at 1.47 vs most pistol cans at 1.375 or 1.25" diameter.
  11. Unlike old Al, most of us here prefer to know what we are talking about before flapping our jaws. The quantum physicists haven't made it yet
  12. Easier to blame faulty equipment than to admit fault in their training principles.
  13. That would be considered open carrying after it was no longer concealed. 100% legal in TN with a permit. The instructor may think it's not OK, but it's not illegal. You have to either draw it from the holster or verbally say you will use it to be illegal.
  14. Health insurance is so expensive for many reasons. A couple of which are the cost of the education required for it, and trust me you don't want an undereducated doctor trying to save your life. Also the cost of malpractice insurance. This is so expensive because of so many lawsuits being awarded. Healthcare has huge risks involved in it. Simple healthcare, I can see being a bit cheaper, but most things just can't be made any cheaper. Would you go through 12+ years of school costing over $100k in student loans just to make $50k a year (after malpractice insurance premiums are paid)? No one in their right mind would. Believe me, we all would love to go back to the past where a new Camaro SS cost $5,000 instead of $50,000. Or a new 2,000sqft home in a nice neighborhood cost $40k instead of $250k+. Or a man could pay for a medical surgery cash out of pocket. It isnt realistic though, society has advanced and advancements cost more and more money. I can guarantee your X-ray from 2 years ago gave the Dr much more Lear information than the one from 78.
  15. Absolutely! It's not the government's job to have anything to do with healthcare. Along with literally millions of other things it has its hand in, affecting or regulating. Its a service provided by the private free market. It's not a right by any stretch of the imagination.
