  1. I support this. I believe the post count restriction would work best. Then you can search a members posts and see if they were genuine or just getting their post count up enough so they can PM and scam other members.
  2. ATF has sent people to prison because they ruled a shoestring or a paper clip was an unregistered machine gun. They have earned the reputation they have.
  3. Bet they sell her a 710 cap while she’s there...
  4. That quality level of hunting rifle would be hard to move in a standard caliber, but .300 WBY MAG? I think that’s going to be a tough sell to anyone that doesn’t hunt out west.
  5. Call around and ask a few independent diesel shops about the reliability of the big three brands and the particular years. Guarantee they all say avoid the 6.0 Powerstroke and probably the 6.4 PS too.
  6. Absolutely 3/4 ton, and get a diesel. Since you are buying used, absolutely under no circumstances get a 6.0 Powerstroke. I’m not familiar with the newer ones but these are junk. Duramax or Cummins is fine but the 6.0PS will be in the shop more than on the road. It’s been several years back now, but my dad pulled a trailer 5-6 days a week all year long for work as a contractor. It was a 7x12 enclosed trailer at an estimated 6-8k (never weighed it). Originally he pulled it with a 99 Silverado 1500 2wd reg cab short bed 4.3 v6. It did the job, but it was obvious you needed more truck. Squatted the rear end quite a bit, nowhere near enough braking power, and it was enough of a strain that I don’t think it would have lasted long term. Did that for 4 years/80k miles, finally was able to get a Duramax, 2004 2500 crew cab short bed 4wd. It did a much better job at it. It was an appropriate truck for that load. If you are only looking at 3-4 years old, you likely won’t save that much over a brand new, left over stock from last year when you buy. Full sized trucks in general and especially diesel pickups hold their value very well even in a non-COVID-19 market.
  7. According to federal law, muzzleloaders aren’t “firearms”
  8. At least it’s not a “ground breaking” polymer striker 9mm pistol.
  9. That is interesting. I hope Ruger continues making the Marlin lever guns and doesn’t turn them into those awful things they made years ago. Barnes bought by Sierra is good news, I only see good things from that. The rest either worries me or I am indifferent about.
  10. George Foreman grill. That’s all I’m saying.
  11. I think the talking heads are more worried about setting the country on fire and keeping Trump out of office than the virus. Its like anything else, move from one ratings-boosting catastrophe to another. Modern America has a very short attention span.
  12. All I can add is that I’m jealous
  13. When I was in high school when all the kids wanted a Honda Civic, there was a shop in town that was known for buying wrecked import cars slapping on a body kit, cheap paint, decals, cheap rims, and selling for a premium. And to the kids that wanted that kind of car, they sold like hot cakes.
  14. Well, I would argue that Tacomas don’t really count. They hold their value better than any other vehicle on the road. Probably hold their value better than gold if you really crunched the numbers. But you are right. Used car market is crazy right now.
  15. Facebook Marketplace is where a lot of it has gone to now. Craigslist is still popular though. GoLSN is another. It’s mostly East TN and some middle TN.
  16. While you do get more velocity from longer barrels, most agree 8-9 inches is the sweet spot for 300 BLK barrel length. And given that the overwhelming majority of 300 BLK shooters are shooting under 100 yards subsonic suppressed or want a very short pistol/SBR for home defense or a truck gun I think that’s why you are seeing the shorter barrels. The new Daniel Defense PDW has a 7” barrel. My recent research has led me to either Ballistic Advantage or BCM as the top names in 300 BLK currently, as previously mentioned.
  17. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.tennessean.com/amp/5263578002 Already in the works, but likely won’t happen for the foreseeable future due to COVID-19. But it’s already long past the “gauging interest” phase.
  18. I remember a time when everyone said reloading 9mm or 5.56 was a waste of time, you can buy bulk ammo cheap enough it’s not worth it . Only worth it for expensive calibers like 44 Mag or 45/70. Where are they now?
  19. Even though this is cut and dried, let me say I am overwhelmingly thankful he killed himself instead of being killed by a LEO. I don’t need any sparks being set off in my backyard.
