  1. There's something about Mary. There's also something about the sound of a bullet hitting steel, the smell of gunpowder in the morning, friendly competition and a whole hog lunch. Henry County Gun Club is hosting a sanctioned Tier 2 Steel Challenge match: When: Saturday, March 27, 2021 (registration at 8:00 A.M. followed by safety briefing). Pre-registration is encouraged with www.practiscore.com (HCGC) Where: 1995 Goldston Springs Rd., Puryear, TN. (Close to Paris TN.) Match Director: Grant Laird; 731-336-9207; bbqlaird@yahoo.com
  2. The NRA has become corrupt, compromising and self centered under Wayne LaPierre and his minions. I could write a book on it but would be wasting my time, just like they waste their membership money; so I'll let it go at that. If you enjoy shooting a pistol and the excitement of competition; you're going to like USPSA. Had the USPSA been around in 1776, Washington wouldn't have needed an entire Army. He would have called up the USPSA and said, "hey, I gots me a little problem with Englishmen; can you spare a handful of "C" and "B" class shooters. Keep your Grand Masters through "A" class,
  3. TGO David's prediction is about a month old now and we see the results. I'm going to drop an Edgar Cayce on you, you ain't seen nothing yet. Forget the hanging chad, forget the Florida count controversy, the mail ins and dead people and cats voting; this November's election is going to be the nastiest and most prolonged election in history, if Trump wins the electoral college. The democraps are going to do some nasty things never before done, and I can see Nancy Pelosi as interim and temporary president if Trump wins. They're not hiding their agenda's, intentions and plans. If the de
  4. I agree. You never know what situation will find you and where you'll be. Looking at society today and the twelve people whom may be sitting judging you; what's their definition, morals and idea of what constitutes a "reasonable person"? Probably half of America disagrees with my life long belief of what 'reasonable' is. That one word "reasonable" is probably the biggest legal word if you're facing charges / prosecution. My idea of great bodily harm when I see it, will vary greatly from those who can view it frame by frame if it's videoed, studied or bias and lies involved. If the situat
  5. I'm becoming a Walther fanboy myself. Bought a Walther PPQ, Q5, Pro steel frame, with that free money Uncle Sugar sent me a while back. Shoots and feels great with not a hiccup. Now it's an internal fight between another Walther or CZ for the next one?
  6. That's why I had the wife measure me, and it's true to size. A long time ago I ordered my IDPA vest in XL and it's floppy. As long as I'm not active standing out in the summer sun, heat & humidity; it's not too hot to wear. Wore it to church this morning with my G-19 and spare mag OWB, worked and covered just fine. Now I can comfortably carry everything I may need and distribute the weight to where it's comfortable. Didn't have a good place for my large smartphone, little Surefire flashlight in my pants.
  7. Morning there Cruel Hand Luke, I'm going to keep this secular as best I can. We've seen the past church violence and shootings in Tennessee and everywhere. We see the escalating violence and lawlessness going on presently. We see the fabric of our society breaking down, divisions and calling good evil and evil good. Our government [parts thereof], society and news media are associating 'Christians' as domestic terrorists, haters, homophobic, xenophobic, intolerant filled with hate speech, etc. Are we seeing any indications of Christian targeting and persecution beginning? I see thing
  8. Thank you for your excellent thoughts, advice and resources; it's much appreciated and sound practical advice. If and when the subject comes up again, I'll bring up some of the options you brought up for church consideration. A couple of problems are; the vast majority of our congregation is my age or older [>68 years old]. On a good morning pre covid-19, our Sunday morning worship service is about 40 in attendance. Of those in attendance, not all are members or attend every Sunday. We currently have our heads financially above water, but probably don't have the finances for an i
  9. I wasn't either until I seen the light in 2016.
  10. After looking around, this is what I ended up purchasing. I've tried it out a couple of times now and it suits my intended purpose; to conceal anything I have on my belt. I can now tuck my shirt in and look more presentable and comfortable. It hides my G-26, G-19 and Sig P320's very well for OWB carry [the most comfortable]. This vest is comfortable to wear and well made. It has a 'cheap' holster in the right pocket [I'm left handed]. I can squeeze in my Sig P320 sub-compact and G-26 but, it's tight and prints a bit. As you can see from the Amazon link, it doesn't look tactical at all, and an
  11. "Better to have and not need, than need and not have" I'm now 68 years old [an old man], and I don't recognize the nation I grew up in. This will most likely turn into another long rant. We live in a dangerous world, and it's getting more dangerous by the day. Lawlessness, protests and rioting is breaking out in many places; some of our local, city, state governments, federal representatives and citizenry are supporting and condoning those organizations illegal actions and not being prosecuted. When the police arrest these criminals, the DA'S and prosecutor's are refusing to charge
  12. This might turn out to be a bit lengthy but, this is the detailed process I used to select a provider. One of the things I had to keep in mind was; to compare apples with apples, because most of these companies have different levels of coverage for different things. I also had to keep in mind the likely civil aftermath and lawsuit of a self defense encounter. As far as recommendations, I really can't give any. The several I checked out seemed to be reputable and have good published programs. I watch a lot of Youtube gun videos and a number of the channels refer you to or recommend a certa
  13. They have three levels of coverage on their website.
  14. I did my research and narrowed it down to two that met my needs. I don't want to name names because of TGO sponsors. But both seemed pretty equal, but one having an actual client and experience. All things being about equal, I decided to go with the one who has a member dashboard; with training videos, articles, pick your own lawyer and sends a nice little survival package.
  15. Off the top of my head, I can't picture a bar and grill real close to where you're referring to across the highway?
  16. Last I heard, when they shut it down it was going to be at least a year to upgrade it. I haven't heard any progress report since last fall? Yea, I like it too; a great view and the food is excellent. My neighbor worked there [seldom talk to her], I'll ask if she is going back or knows anything.
  17. I posted awhile back where someone tried to break into our home when we were in bed. From my little research and reading local arrest reports, it appears our county is loaded with crack heads and drug addicts. Knowing they don't hold down jobs to support their drug addictions, they obtain their money by committing crimes I'm going to guess. What if, whom ever was prying my dead bolt and door lock open made entry into my dwelling and there was some loud bangs? Apparently this little city I live in is not exempt from the kook's and protester's as of last Saturday. I'm going to be doing a li
  18. Hey Dave I have a question if you will... I've been checking around on this TN. enhanced permit and can't find much on it. I have the lifetime TN. Handgun Carry Permit. Where can I go to see how this new permit affects or changes the TN. HCP? I've checked handgun laws us and other sources and they don't address it. Thanks
  19. Of course I keep current with what's going on around the country with this BLM, ANTIFA, etc. The prosecuting attorneys prosecuting people defending themselves and letting criminals go: the liberal and democrat mindset, our country being turned upside down. Well I don't live near one of the bigger cities in Tennessee, I'm not planning on going to a large city, I'm pretty much isolated and exempt from all this madness. Wrong! Here at the little city of Paris, TN., we had a little protest at the Henry County Courthouse to tear down the statue. If it can happen in small town TN., it can happe
  20. Back in the day: I vividly remember my grandfather buying me my first hunting rifle to go squirrel hunting with him; a brand new Steven's .22 LR. I'd walk the streets around where I lived and pick up soda bottles, cash them in for 2 cents each. When I visited and spent the weekend with my grandparents, I'd walk the two miles or so to the Western Auto store. At 12 years old, I'd walk up to the ammo / gun counter and say give me two boxes of .22 LR, and put my two quarters on the counter. Back then if memory serves, if I had the money, at twelve years old I think I could have purchased my own ri
  21. I suffer from the same contagious condition; it's more contagious than the current virus. However; I've found some relief in combating the symptoms and effects of carrying something home, and you sure don't want to 'give' it to another. Just carry small quantities of cash, leave debit and credit cards at home [or better yet, cut them up] and most importantly... Make sure when it runs across you, you're over a 1/2 days trip from from there. This gives you pause because you can not return on the same day to take it home and gives you time to ensure the adoption is legitimate. It gets tiring
  22. I don't like to disparage a company but I was extremely unhappy. Little information was described with no 360 degree pictures. In addition to the plastic hanger, this setup wasn't well thought out and fitted properly. I replaced it with the Ben Stoeger Boss holster, hanger and belts. Holster Packages.html
  23. I said something similar as I was walking out of Walmart with my limit of one little package of hamburger at twice the normal price. Speaking of price and availability of products; for a number of reasons I think what we're experiencing is going to be the new normal, or at the very least last a long time? Just like famine, it's not that food isn't available, it's the price that is prohibitive or government / controlling forces restricting it. This time next year in hindsight, I could be thinking what a bargain 9mm was for $0.43 per round was, I wish I had bought more. 8/22/2021 US
  24. I have a couple of buddies that reload, and I thought I'd buy me the Dillon equipment to start reloading myself during the two year Obamazation shortage. Along with no one being able to obtain ammo, no one could find powder or primers for reloading, so everyone was still in the same boat. It's more expensive but, it's just easier for me to stock up on ammo rather than everything needed to reload. And at my age, I only have so many bend overs to pick up casings, maybe 4 or five?
  25. There's nothing like having to buy something shooting related "twice". I've learned a couple of financial lessons here lately, for example: I won't name the company but, I ordered a competition rig [both belts, hanger and holster] and it wasn't cheap [$200.00+]. There wasn't a lot of information on their website on this rig and its components, so I sort of took it on faith it is going to function properly. Being left-handed there's not a huge selection of competition holsters and hangers to choose from. Anyway, my gear arrived the other day and I was putting it together and noticed how fl
