  1. I had a friend who checked his Browning 9mm, which was "lost" upon arrival, never to be seen again . . . ship it to yourself. Don't take the chance!
  2. If anyone with a S&W wants a trigger job, their custom shop did an EXCELLENT job on my 686 and it was not expensive at all. Glad your job worked out so well.
  3. I have a 12 ga Franchi shotgun from the '70's that belonged to my deceased father. The gun is totally "locked up"; you cannot open the breech at all. Any ideas on what to do? I plan to see a gunsmith and see if it can be opened in preparation for selling it. Very, very hard to sell your Dad's guns . . . Thanks for some feedback.
  4. I am in the process of selling some of my late father's firearms; the ones I do not wish to keep. Hard to do . . . My dad had a Win Model 100 .308 that was supposed to be sent back to the factory for modification; I think it was a firing pin issue. Dad never sent it back. My question is: is the gun safe to sell? I will NOT put anyone at risk. Opinions, please, and thanks . . . selling your dad's guns is part of selling a part of yourself. Luckyforward
  5. In the midst of your stress, may you and your family feel a sense of peace, from which you will gain strength to sustain you . . .
  6. I could tell you were not going to throw a gun at her and let her go; if you are inclined towards a handgun for her, take her out and let her shoot a .22 and graduate up to a .38. If no comfort level for her in a handgun, go for a 20 ga. shotgun; single or double
  7. Whoops . .. not a Republican. Will I get shot if I come? Bet so . . .
  8. If your Mom has NO facility with firearms, buy her a 20 ga. double barrel; short barrel and SHOOT it with her until she is comfortable with it. Unless your mother - unlike mine - is willing to invest the time to practice placing a good shot, a shotgun is better self protection for her than a handgun.
  9. I'd go with which ever one you feel the most comfortable shooting in terms of control and recoil
  10. Thanks. Your response supports my belief about the SP 101; is my main carry weapon and is the one I have trained my wife with.
  11. Unless you have some experience shooting a semi-auto and changing magazines, go for a revolver. I would recommend an SP-101; I don't mind carrying a larger revolver, so I carry a SW 686 2.5.
  12. Does anyone have an opinion about the Ruger .45 double action? Thanks
  13. Gun Digest book of Guns and Prices (07) says Exc/375; VG/300; Good/200; Fair/150 Hope this helps
  14. Here in Nashville, the "young guns" with their shaven heads and dark glasses work very hard to intimidate rather than show professionalism. Congrats to Camden!
  15. I see your Ruger avatar; what is your opinion of the Ruger .45 ACP double action? Thanks -
  16. Just wanted to say hello to all; newbie here! Native Tennessean, home is Chattanooga but I live in Nashville. Grew up with guns all my life, love to shoot about anything, and am trying to get back into deer hunting this year. Hope to be talking with many of you!
