  1. Wouldn't ya have to sit on the throne while eating that monstrosity?
  2. Don't know anything about a shortage but my Cabela's (Pietta) Remington New Army will be here tomorrow! I really want a Walker but am easing myself into the BP world. So I'm going cheap. I'd like to OC at Wally World with the Walker ! That should get some people talkin'.
  3. Hard to say. All CMP will tell you definitively is that they are "from the Army". Sales page now says from several countries. Many are from Italy, or at least were rebuilt there as evidenced from the big FAT stamp on many stocks. That was the case back in June when I bought mine. Although the sales page says many manufacturers are sold out they still have thousands (my estimate) that have not been made ready for sale. I recommend that everyone gets one! They are the funnest little guns ever!
  4. Most likely CMP. Got a couple myself at what I am sure are much lower prices than what those dealers are charging.
  5. I really wish you hadn't shown me this! I was at the range the other day and the guy next to me had an 1861 Colt that blew out smoke that was, well, Aromatic. Even for all the trouble of loading and cleaning I may just have to get me one of these. How's the quality? Go out and shoot it! Let's here how it runs.
  6. I can't narrow myself down to 5. Can we go up to 10? All the bases seem to be covered except I would add somewhere in the mix: - Any classic military bolt gun (Enfield, Mauser, Springfield or M1917) - M1 Carbine. I really love those things. - A LUGER
  7. Volunteer Rifle & Pistol Club (VRPC) in Knoxville is CMP affiliated. I joined them to get my creds with CMP.
  8. IMHO, go with a shotgun or revolver. Many good opinions on all methods here but I'd stay away from an automatic if anyone who handles the thing is inexperienced or unpracticed.
  9. YOUbedam. You are the devil! That is waaaay over the top! I'll need another Natty Light to get that damn tune out of my head! Need to go find wife.
  10. I missed the first quarter of the UT game for this show! In my opinion, not worth the trouble. Typical show. Same dealers, same guns. Not enough of either. One dealer with ammo cans, plain, no markings. There are opportunities for some new gutters or siding for the house just in case you go to the gun show looking for such things. With $1 off coupon to get in, my M1 carbine mag cost $24 by my accounting.
  11. Sounds like you fixed the sticky bolt syndrome. Think I might "accidently" take mine apart and put it back together too.
  12. Apparently that was his "magic" thumb.
  13. The action is the same on all 10/22's as far as I know. Except maybe for finish. I would find the cheapest that you can since it's the action you want. That's what you'll add new barrel, stock, etc to.
  14. Since I drive by that place everyday I stopped by to see what this is all about. And to see what was in the display case. Here's what is posted on the door: http://www.atf.gov/pub/gen_pub/gun_free_school_zone_notice.pdf Only the front page, not the entire pamphlet is on display. Anyone want to interpret and discuss in relation to HCP? My take is you're legit carrying.
  15. Based on what that place wanted for a Bersa 380 the last time I was in there it should be "Gun Free".

    New Handgun

    Excellent choice! I've admired those for a loooong time. Now I'm wanting to go look again. IMHO one of the best, if not the best 9's ever designed. Stand back and watch it take out the X ring when you're at the range. That baby can do it all by itself.
  17. One of these days I'll read the whole thread before piping up! Can't dispute Cecil Adams. Like many other people I've had that idea in my head for years without any true knowledge of the matter.
  18. My advice is: 1) Stay out of Atlanta. It's a toilet. Since that is not an option... 2) Consulates and Embassies are considered sovereign soil of that nation. You're in Canada when you set foot on the grounds. I don't believe you'll find any reciprocity agreement. Leave gun at home, hotel or wherever.
  19. They have come a long way since that Jolly Royal goober from back in the day!
  20. I might be older but probably look about your age and when I'm not at work am running around in shorts and t-shirt. It's nice in some ways 'cause it keeps the salesmen away from you until ready to do business. Just look'em in the eye to indcate you're ready for help. If you get no response, screw'em. They're too expensive anyway.
  21. Well, they must be considered. Believe it or not I actually paid a fair price for my Chinese H&R Pardner pump 12 ga. (that I'll put up against any 870 or Mossberg) there. $199.95 brand new. If you go there regularly you'll see the same tired old guns they've had since opening. I honestly don't know how that place sells anything. It's a great place to browse, then go buy somewhere else.
  22. An excellent endorsement and prices are mostly fair. I know this is true as I stop in from time to time. Glad to know you'll match a lower price. If one can be found!
  23. If you know where I can find good gun deals in ET please let me know. I can't speak for whole region but in Knoxville you pay what they ask. The FEW shops in my area have mediocre selection and high prices. Maybe my negotation skills are sliding but the store front shops around here are selective on what's high and what's not, who gets a deal and who doesn't. Of course I do like to see what I'm buying so selection is important to me. I like to shop around. If I am mistaken all you ET fellas please let me know!
  24. While you're on the subject..... I have a '42 Lithgow with a Coachwood stock. Have read alot about having brass recoil plates in the stock to prevent cracking which mine does not have. If you know what I mean let me know.
  25. Why are they worried about rent living in the projects? Have the normal sources of income dried up. I doubt it. If I owned a business and could help out the honest ones I would. Was born and raised there and knew a few that lived in those circumstances. God knows the economy is crappy everywhere but theiving is totally unacceptable. Let's see some folks who are about to lose a home and do not live on the guvment tit. That is truly heartbreaking. Have they discovered copper in Memphis yet or any recyclable metal? It's all the rage up here. People are stealing that stuff left and right.
