  1. Hard to beat 1095 Carbon steel, coated with a durable finish. Ka-bars are built like tanks!
  2. Look Mr. GQ, you need to fatten up like the rest of us huskey old farts! Don't come around here bragging about being skinny. We don't want to hear it!!! Seriously, I work with a bunch of nerds (translated Engineers) and one of them wears tactical pants and button downs all the time. It's not a bad look at all. No sports coat though.
  3. We do not typically worry about Hurricanes here in TN. When they get this far North, they are at best Tropical Depressions and moving fast. Therefore in the rural counties, building codes and zoning laws can be very lax. If you want stricter codes and zoning, look at the more metropolitan areas of Chattanooga, Knoxville, Nashville or Memphis. From your original post it seems you are looking in the lesser populated areas. Perhaps, areas like Jackson, Johnson City, Manchester or Morristown might be more suitable.
  4. Depends on the caliber and type! I'd work for a box an hour. Of course, then you have other products like firearms and optics! LOL!
  5. I might consider working part time at a gun store, when I retire! They could just pay me in product!
  6. Had 300+ in the first PT111G2 without a hiccup, before trading it away. Working on 700 on the second one, with no hiccups. Just gave it to my son. The 627 only has 50 mixed rounds of .357 and .38 through it. The on thing I dislike about the PT111 is the plastic sights, but I haven't had an issue with it. Just wish they were steel or aluminum. No, not a bunch of rounds. But enough that I was comfortable carrying them from time to time. Probably about normal for about 90% of firearms made and sold here in the USA. I don't go shooting everyday like some that seem to have unlimited resources. One a every month or two on average. Sometimes a little more sometimes a little less. Have you seen a lot of the G2s sent back? Or are you describing older ones too? How about the revolvers? What shop do you work at or own? If they are not good quality firearms, why sell them?

  8. Actually, I’ve had two of the little PT111 G2s and both have been excellent pistols. I also bought a 627 .357, that I really like as well. Fit and finish isn’t a S&W, but I paid half of what I would have paid for a 686. I’m happy with it. I also have a .44mag in lay-a-way right now too.
  9. They are hit or miss. I for one appreciate what he has put out about the Spectrum. You are free to to not read and move along.
  10. I have no issue with this. This is something the NRA should probablysupport and get lead the way on! https://www.yahoo.com/news/texas-approves-safe-gun-storage-campaign-over-nra-192429677.html

  13. Probably best not to buy in Sevier County. The Tourist trade has really driven land prices sky high. I have friend that lives in Sevier County, on Douglas Lake. He's in the process of looking for a farm and has zeroed in on Jefferson County. He told me the other day that as soon as you cross into the Jeff County, the land prices drop by about 25%. Land in Blount County is also on the rise, also due in some part to the Tourist trade, but also because there is a lot of flat land for building subdiviions. Blount County does their best to throttle new growth though, with very stringent subdivision codes. But it's starting to get out of hand there. Traffic is pretty bad in Maryville at rush hour. Probably your best bit is Jefferson, Hamblen or Cock Counties, if you are looking to stay close to the Sevierville area. Personally, I'd go to a bit further north north in East Tennessee and look around Greenville and Johnson City or further south around Athens or Cleveland. ORSA is on the west side of Oak Ridge and has a 1000 yard range, as well as shotgun, pistol, and other ranges. Not sure of the cost. But I would guess it to be in the !75 to 200 range.
  14. Honestly, when a regime is in place for a long period of time, like WLP and his cronies, it becomes currupt, as we are beginning to see. And the now I believe the chickens are about to come home to roost.
  15. Well these kids get it! There may be hope yet!!! Students walk out of Colorado school shooting vigil, saying their trauma was being politicized HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – Students who survived Tuesday's suburban Denver school shooting walked out of a gun-control rally Wednesday night in anger and tears over concerns the event inappropriately politicized their grief. While primarily billed as a vigil to honor high school shooting victim Kendrick Castillo, most of the speakers at the 2,000-person rally were politicians and gun-control advocates pushing Congress to change the nation's gun laws. After about 30 minutes, hundreds of students from the STEM School stormed out yelling "this is not for us," "political stunt" and "we are people, not a statement." Outside, the traumatized shooting survivors thrust lighted cellphones into the air and chanted "mental health, mental health," as their hands and voices shook in the cold rain. Angry students pushed and screamed at journalists, demanding to see photos they had taken. Interview requests made by a USA TODAY reporter were rebuffed; multiple students said they had agreed not to talk to journalists. Frustrated, crying and angry, #STEMschool shooting victims hold an impromptu vigil in the rain Wednesday after leaving a gun-control vigil they felt inappropriately politicized their trauma. (They asked that I not photograph their faces close up, and I respected their wishes.) pic.twitter.com/cksRXGtYQA — Trevor Hughes (@TrevorHughes) May 9, 2019 Many students appeared unaware the event was organized by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Sen. Michael Bennet and Rep. Jason Crow, both Democrats, both spoke at length about the need for federal action. The Brady Campaign invited reporters to cover the event. In an apology issued afterward, the Brady Campaign said all efforts should be focused on supporting the STEM students, families and faculty members. "We are deeply sorry any part of this vigil did not provide the support, caring and sense of community we sought to foster and facilitate and which we know is so crucial to communities who suffer the trauma of gun violence," the statement said. Some STEM students and family members held a private vigil earlier in the day. They said the public and journalists were kept out to permit anguished students and their parents a chance to grieve together away from the media spotlight into which they have unwillingly been thrust. Castillo, 18, was killed and eight students were wounded Tuesday when two teens opened fire in classrooms at the K-12 school specializing in science and math. Castillo, three days away from completing high school, and two classmates charged one of the shooters at his school. The avid hunter and fisherman was killed. Colorado Gov. Jared Polis signed "red flag" legislation last month providing judges with the power to temporarily remove firearms from people believed to be at high risk of harming themselves or others.
