  1. LEO, first responders, and utility works are exempt.
  2. I'll tell you what I think and it probably won't be popular. I spend a considerable amount of time in my car. A drive roughly 30k per year. I use my phone a lot in my car for both business and personal use. Now I'll knock on wood. I haven't had a speeding conviction in 13 years. I haven't been involved in an accident in 18 years. I drive in Nashville rush hour traffic several times per week. I have a perfect driving record. Do I talk on my phone while driving? Yes. Do I text while driving? Yes, but I do use voice to text. Do I look at my phone while driving? Yes. I also do these things judiciously so as not to endanger others. I actually don't mess with my phone at all when I am in rush hour traffic. Back roads with little traffic and stop lights are a different story, though I do pay attention to the light. I absolutely will not be that guy doesn't realize that the light turns green because I'm on my phone. I wonder just how many people who caused this law to come into effect drive the amount of miles without the violations and accidents that I do?
  3. That's the saddest things I've read in months, just awful.
  4. As a general rule of thumb in Tennessee, and generally any rural areas as well: the further you get from town the more likely you are to find thieves, drug addicts, etc. It's a trade off, but cities have rampant theft. Some suburbs are pretty void of that kind of thing, but I have no desire to live there. I take my chances in the country, lock my stuff up, use cameras as necessary, and attempt to have a reputation with that ilk of people that they are better off to mess around somewhere else.
  5. $600 is high IMO. I'm paying less than that now to lease several thousands of acres. I could be wrong, but if be surprised if anyone is really interested in the deer. Fentress County holds deer in pockets, but the limits are so low in Fentress County that I wouldn't drive up there to hunt them for free. Pigs are going to be what people hunting that area are after. Please be judicious and careful when confronting trespassers, they tend to occasionally travel in large groups and will make your life miserable if they don't kill you. I would tell you to get to know others who live in the area, but that can go either way as well, there are a lot of people in that area who don't want anyone there who wasn't born there. Some of them don't have a lot of sense and don't have anything to lose.
  6. If they are effectively keeping the riff raff run off I would keep them. The riff raff in that area is very riffy, or maybe raffy? Used to have a lease in that area, eventually left because of all of the undesirable people. A lot of people in that area that could care less about property lines and personal property. Think we were paying around $600/yr for 1500 acres up there.

    Mosin Nagant Prices

    Don't know, I liquated mine that I paid $70 for and bought a quality rifle.
  8. Aaron's Outdoors. He's out of Old Hickory but I'm pretty sure he covers Clarksville. Top notch work and very competitive prices. 615-517-6830. My neighbor used Tennessee Landclearing to clear some growth a couple of years ago. They had a lot of difficulty understanding which trees to leave and which trees to take, even though the ones that they wanted to keep had flagging tape wrapped around the trunks. It sucks when they take down all of your oaks and leave you hackberries and cedars.
  9. That last paragraph "90% of the guns that are associated with crime have been sold by 5% of the gun dealers". Yeah, I'm going to need a reliable citation on that. I'd say with her attitude one thing that she might accomplish if she takes office is kicking off that next civil war.
  10. Update: HughD, if you look at that link that you posted from Midwest gun works, part number 6 is what I was inquiring about. That o-ring was going to cost me about $18 shipped. Not wanting to put that kind of money into a free gun that I really have not figured out what I'm going to use for, I made a gasket out of three layers of duct tape. It's working great now!
  11. I moved away from Maryville back to middle Tennessee in 2015. I haven't been back since, but I could see that it was starting to get that way. The difference in middle and east Tennessee is that I'm 40 miles out from town now. And although I'm in a rural area, it's quickly growing. It will be a long time before anyone is desperate enough to develop mountainous areas like they have developed what idea to be farm land here. As much as I hate the thought of a state income tax, had we put it in like they attempted back in 2000, we likely wouldn't be having these problems.
  12. I lived in Blount County for a few years and loved it. Spent a lot of time camping and fishing in the Citico area just down the road. Maryville has about everything that you need, yet you can be in some pretty remote areas within a 20 minute drive from town. We could still go over to highly commercialised Gatlinburg, Sevierville, Pigeon Forge area if my wife wanted to, but I preferred to stear clear. IMO the deer hunting is pretty terrible in that part of the state, as an avid outdoorsman it was a trade off to have a bunch of other outdoor opportunities.
  13. Been on a Tyler Childers kick for a week or so now.
  14. Do I not understand this correctly, or am I the only one bothered by the fact that the Knox County Sheriff's office is basically saying that they are disregarding the state law and making up their own rules.

    Latest CC Setup

    I have a 642 circa 2006, the finish is awful. I did gently carry it daily for several years, but it looks like it's been drug behind a truck.
  16. I had an inoperable Winchester Ranger 140 in 20ga given to me. I disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled it. The last person who assembled it failed to install the firing pin correctly, preventing the gun from going into battery. No secret that the 140s are junk guns, but the price was right and it would make a good boat, 4 wheeler, tractor, wife gun. To the point: The gun fails to eject the spent shell. I think that the ejector and the extractor are fine as they work like expected when manually operating the bolt. Looking at the schematic for the gun I see an "o ring forearm spacer" but can't figure out exactly where it should go. The best I can tell doing internet research there are no o rings on the piston cup, which doesn't really make sense to me. Does anyone happen to have a 1400 or 140 that they may be able to show me where this o ring is located exactly? Also measurements of the o ring would be awesome. At $18 for a new one in going to try to fit a generic to it.
  17. The wordage of the statute reads: Any person using force intended or likely to cause death or serious bodily injury within a residence, business, dwelling or vehicle is presumed to have held a reasonable belief of imminent death or serious bodily injury to self, family, a member of the household or a person visiting as an invited guest, when that force is used against another person, who unlawfully and forcibly enters or has unlawfully and forcibly entered the residence, business, dwelling or vehicle, and the person using defensive force knew or had reason to believe that an unlawful and forcible entry occurred. As such, MY interpretation of the law is that it extends to any legal adult, hence the "any person" wordage as opposed to a specific reference of age. Additionally, with the castle doctorine considering a vehicle as an extension of one's home, again, MY interpretation is that an 18-20 year old caring a handgun in their car is perfectly within the law. Disclaimer: this post is in no way to be considered legal advice.
  18. I got one of the saw mill blades from the previous run. I couldn't be more pleased. Most expensive knife I've ever owned and worth every penny twice. Processed a few deer with mine this past season and the knife was a pleasure to work with. Anyone buying these knives will not be disappointed. I'm very tempted to grab one of these even though I already have one.

    Ruger Wrangler

    And 20 years down the road people will be saying "Ruger is a good gun, except for those Wranglers, they're kind of junky." The Heritage is what it is, I own one, and it's not a bad gun. But, I wouldn't put my Heritage up against a Single Six. Although I can appreciate nice guns, they sit in the safe, while my Heritage and SKS, get thrown on the four wheeler or tractor and actually used.
  20. Been hearing gobbling every morning for a couple of weeks.
  21. I got this on a trade. It's awesome but way more tool than I need. Comes with 2 batteries, charger, and tote bag. It's only one month old and looks like it as well. It's over $900 from Snap On. Accepting offers and will consider all trades. I considered just keeping it because it would be great for when I have to take the wheels off of my dually, but it's just overkill. Asking $700 obo and/or open to trades.
  22. Just a point of information, Sportsman's covers the trout stamp. It does not cover the duck stamp.
  23. After hunting pigs I have little interest in deer. Actually pig hunting is kind of like deer hunting, for men.
  24. I've had one for a few months and really like it.

    Everything and nothing in particular. I own more stuff than most people twice my age. Scrap metal, scrap lumber, tools, all kinds of broken machinery (never know when you can source a part for something else). Basically, anything that I come across for cheap or free that I think that I will use. As much time as I spend trying to keep my house not looking like Ma and Pa Kettle's I have no desire to chase after anything specific.
