  1. Other than North Dakota what states are calling this a Learners permit? This is how fake news happens.... The key thing in your post is the "in my opinion"
  2. Where exactly do you see that the concealed carry permit is TN only or is this social media heresay.
  3. Sixth:. It keeps instructors with a paycheck.... If TN goes constitutional carry (which they should) then my guess is the permits become one and the same... All of your points are excellent, however so far the only state that isn't buying in is one of the Dakota's to paint a doom and gloom and assume that there will be no reciprocity seems like someone trying to scare people into the other class. What if other states drop the enhanced reciprocity because of the concealed to avoid confusion... See this is a fear based on nothing but me expressing it. Right now the concealed permit is a great option and according to family working at the DMV it's a very popular thing already being the main culprit of extended 6-7 hour wait times at the local DMV. As I understand it va can do their course online as well and they reciprocate with 35 states only 2 less than TN. I'll take my chances with it.
  4. I just applied for the new concealed permit and honestly my main reason for not going for the enhanced was the inconveniences of the day at the range. I am prior military (yet somehow not eligible to skip the class...) I shoot roughly 10-15k rounds of pistol a year.... The last thing I wanted was to screw up a Saturday and give someone $65 to teach me how to shoot and give me the abbreviated run down of TN law. DMV was packed with people there for the permit, this is going to be a very popular option. There only downside I see is loss of revenue for the instructors that didn't get their stuff online.
  5. The P365 completely changed my philosophy on handguns. If I could only own one handgun to protect me and mine... this would be it. And I was a Glock fan boy.... and quite the collector of 1911's...
  6. Owned both buy the Ruger. Enjoy your Vaquero with the savings.
  7. I have a covert auto I carry occasionally, unless you are planning on getting in a knife fight its mostly useless. Have owned lots of different autos but my favorite is the microtech LUDT. By far..... If you want to go cheap the Boker AK47's for the money are impossible to beat Microtech service used to be sketchy as heck, recently sent my over the mountain to NC and return was very fast (and free).
  8. Where are you located I may be interested in the charge master?
  9. I just picked up another Ruger Predator in 6.5 Creedmoor for $399 at cabelas yesterday. This is my 3rd one (two sons) and they shoot very close to the ruger precision I have $1400 in. I have hit with the predators at 1100 and 1200 on several occasions and less than 1000 is basically childs play. I also shoot 260rem and have a swede. I personally would take the Creedmoor over all of them just for the ease of ammo availability when I dont feel like reloading. Throw the ease of buying ammo out and I prefer the 260 in my mind its just an inherently accurate cartridge (or maybe its just my 260rem guns are more accurate than the others) and the ability to make brass from .308 ,.243 7mm/08 etc.... The swede is a fine cartridge and can certainly be loaded up to be a great distance shooter, ammo availability and expensive brass is its downfall imo. I would take any of them over a .308 and I own my fair share of those also. For economical <$400 you cant beat the ruger predator in 6.5 creedmoor but I will give an honorable mention to the Howa 1500 in 6.5CM for less than $600 its a lot of rifle.
  10. I own a DD M4V4, have owned multiple colt's and currently still own a complete BCM rifle and a Noveske upper, the cheap smiths will shoot with any of them. I think the fit and finish of the DD is superior but I wouldnt say the same for the colts I have owned or the BCM. The Noveske is an amazing upper shoots lights out and very accurate, but I could buy almost three smiths at their current cost for what I paid for it. The smith is easily as reliable as any of these rifles and in some cases more accurate (i'm looking at you Colt).
  11. S&W Sport II's are getting cheap also I picked up two this week one in Elizabethton for $529 and one in Kingsport for $499. I have custom AR's that I have built for much much more money. The cheapo smiths though have stood the test of time for me for reliability and reasonable accuracy, if the price keeps dropping I will probably keep buying more.... That said I did buy a PSA lower and a Troy upper from primary arms for $429 (its $449 now) the M-Lok and sights are a big chunk of that $429 heck of a deal (it comes with a BCG but will get one of the premium PSA's that I have lying around).
  12. I requested my records some time back from NPRC and received basically my enlistment papers and a form 1070/615 which is a record of discharge from USNR, still a pretty vague document. A DD214 was not issued because active service was less than 90 days.
  13. So... Just lurking through as usual and have a question. If you was a reservist in say the 1990s will your military handgun training that all members receive suffice for the class/range portion? Reservists typically get a dd 256 instead of a dd 214, the dd 256 is a pretty vague document that just basically states you were honorably discharged no where on it does it state your qualifications or classes. As trivial as it seems the biggest reason keeping me from getting my hcp is the time involved in the class (super busy schedule and a cheap bastard). I would probably start the ball rolling asap if this was the case. (this was a double post I posted to a reply in the 2A forum).
