  1. And last to lower prices any. I have not bought from CTD in over 10 years.
  2. Greg pretty well nailed it. I buy vehicles regularly and request the VIN to complete a history check.
  3. To each his own, I prefer the S&W 686 pre-lock.
  4. My nephew and I had just loaded the boat at the Caney Creek ramp on Watts Bar and were standing in the lot talking when we heard the Caney Creek Campground across the lake go crazy with cheers and air horns. I looked at my nephew and said, Vols just beat Bama.
  5. So, it took me a while to get around to shooting the new Compact Dagger I wrote about above. I had a medical hiccup that put me out for a bit but I am good to go now. I went out back and fired several rounds to determine how the sights were. Iron sights were pretty much on. The dagger shot very well and felt very good in my hand. I used both Pmag as well as Glock mags in it with no problems out of either. What surprised me the most was the trigger. I had read several negative posts about the factory trigger on the Dagger. On mine, once you take up the slack it broke clean and crisp. I really couldn't ask for better. I mounted the Vortex Venom and went out back to continue shooting. On the second Mag the venom turned off. I looked down and saw that the battery cover and battery were not there. I searched for an hour and could not find either in the grass. When I put the battery in I wondered whether I had the cover on properly but since it worked I "assumed" it was. It wasn't. My Bad. I called Vortex and told them what happened and asked if I could order a new cover. The guy asked for may address and said a new cover was headed my way, no charge. He also asked for my email address to send more detailed instructions on the install of the cover since they are tricky the first time. That is service. I will be buying more Vortex products, and probably more Daggers.
  6. I would like to have a Mini 30 but just cannot get OK with todays prices for them. Which is also why I now have the PSAK GF3. Plus with them offering the bundle price and free shipping, what's a man to do?
  7. So, today I took delivery on a PSAK GF3 AK47 MOEKOV in flat dark earth furniture and a Dagger compact (Gen 3 Glock 19 Clone) with Doctor cut slide, threaded barrel, carry cut slide, suppressor height sites, (which co-witness with the Vortex Venom 6moa on the work bench waiting to be installed). I bought this as a two weapon bundle which also had the PSA pistol/magazine soft case for $799 plus tax and free shipping. Note, this was ERAY's fault because he closed the ad on his PSA AK before I spoke for it which caused me to actually open the PSA emails again after I tried so desperately to quit doing so, which resulted in my finger dancing on the buy button. I have not fired either as yet but will very soon. I have read the above and take no issue with anyone's opinion, and will gladly share my own about the Dagger since I am posting in the handgun string. I will say that I do own a Glock 17 because if you wish to bash anything about a Glock you have to own one for bashing rights (insert emoji so as to not light any fuses). I have always acknowledged the reliability of Glocks, I just hated the feel of them in my hand. I have tried to convince myself multiple times to buy a Glock 19 but could not get past the feel test, pick it up, nope same as last time I tried. Enough about Glock, I bought the Dagger based solely on reviews, price point and I wanted to try to cross the threshold into optic adorned handguns. Right out of the box my first thought was, this ain't a Glock 19 clone. Yea, yea I got it, interchangeable parts and all that, but I couldn't get myself to buy a 19 the first time and depending on how this Dagger shoots I will probably be buying more of them. The grip reminded me of my P229 and P226s only a touch thinner over all, as opposed to the 1x3 board feel of the 19. (Opinion only) I thought the suppressor height sights looked funky in the profile pic on PSA but I actually like them when sighting through them, even my old man eyes could pick up a sight picture with and without glasses. I will mount the venom to the slide (Doctor cut, no plates required) and have co-witness, so as the sights go, I give it a win. The magazine protruding as it does also looked awkward to me in the pics yet it actually gave my pinky a place to be rather than swimming around below the grip looking for a home as was the case on the G19. The vertical slide cuts fore and aft of ejection port are suitably deep to provide a sure grip for weapon charging as well as chamber checks. Did I mention the Dagger has a steel guide rod, yep. As for the "Extreme Carry Cuts" as advertised. I don't really know how much is gained regarding carry comfort or holstering etc. But I have to say that to me the weapon appearance is far more appealing with the faceted design. For now I consider the Dagger a win, yet final decision depends on range (backyard) performance. I will share that assessment in a much shorter post, I promise.
  8. Can't speak from personal experience, but I have several friends that have had Kia Sorentos and are very pleased with them.
  9. I think this link is the info you are looking for https://www.facebook.com/PossumTrotUSA/ Hope it helps.
  10. I had one of those in 1980, I miss it.
  11. Prayers for Bvarnell and family are on the wing, may he rest in peace.
  12. Congratulations!
  13. Wasn't there when I looked and made my post, glad they added it.
  14. Mall officials have publicly praised the "Good Samaritan". Liberals are challenging the use of the term "Good Samaritan". MSN.com has no mention of the incident. How telling.
  15. I'll take it. Message me to coordinate getting together.
  16. Don't mind at all. Before dark I caught a couple and lost a couple on a 200 series bandit craw pattern with a chartreuse belly. The water was pretty stained from the rain and run off. After dark we mostly Texas rigged under black lights using z-craws, speed craws, 6 or 8 inch zoom lizards and assorted worms 8-12 inches in length. Primary effective color for plastics has been green pumpkin. The past two weeks they have been holding on wood but I expect that to change soon. We didn't try points or ledges at all so I can't speak to that. We just worked the banks from 2 to 12 feet deep. June is typically a good month on Watts Bar.
  17. We caught 20 on Watts Bar this trip in same general mid lake area, mix of largemouth and small mouth. Largest was 4lb8oz. Fishing on Watts Bar isn't as good as it was years ago but it is still my choice of area lakes.
  18. Nephew and I went to Watts Bar, mid lake area, last Saturday night. Caught 22 mix of largemouth and smallmouth with the biggest being 6lb.9oz. Going back tonight.
  19. The saw you linked would be a decent one. I have to agree with Hozzie and say that you would also want a decent skill saw.
  20. I would pick the wrangler between those two...but to muddy the water just a little, I have an EAA Bounty Hunter single action revolver in .22 and .22 magnum. Very well built, shoots very nice and I chose it over the others. It does cost about a Franklin more.
  21. I have five "Hahn 45" CO2 cartridge powered single action BB revolvers from the 60's to early 70's vintage. All are functional and the last time I shot them they all sealed up tight at the cartridge. I will take $60 each or $250 for all five. That price leaves some meat on the bone. If shipped, I will need buyer to cover shipping cost at these prices. Thanks for looking.
  22. I have several original Fred Young Big O's and Fred Young Variants that I have had for many years. These have never seen water and the egg carton in the pics is from the period for these lures were originally stored in this back in the 70's. In the early 90's I purchased a collection of 277 Fred Young lures from a close friend of Mr. Youngs. It was a large sum of money and I told him at the time that I would have to sell most of them in order to keep a collection for myself which I did over time. He was OK with that but he would only sell the whole collection and would not sell me just one, so I bought the collection. These that I have listed are the ones I kept for myself and have admired over the years. It is time to let them go. If you are a serious collector you may have heard of but not seen some of these. First pic is of the collection as a whole which can be had for $4,500.00 I will put individual prices as well. If you are into lure collecting you will appreciate these, if not you will think I am absolutely crazy. There have been many articles written about Fred Young Big-Os. There has also been a lot of incorrect information distributed. Fred made lures for years before he ever started signing or numbering them. The numbering became a thing when the IRS took an interest. He also made several styles as seen here. "Big-O", Mr. Fred, Lil Fred, were handwritten under the bills long before he acquired the Big-O stamp. He was known to experiment of course, but most of the bills were cut from circuit board material and the finished lures were dipped in Targonal which was a hardwood floor coating that is no longer marketed. Thanks for looking and allowing me to ramble. Signed Big O - $600 Rattling Big O - $700 I had six of these but this is my last one. Fred made these by drilling a horizontal hole in the body and inserted a .22 casing with a shotgun BB in it then sealing the hole. These are hard to come by. Big Mo - Larger and longer version, also hard to come by. It was the only one in the collection. - $700 Pin Eye - The pin eyes were very early Fred Young baits, most were carved from cedar rather than balsa or pine. They are called Pin Eyes because Fred used Shirt pins with the little balls on them for the eyes. $600 Mr. Fred - The Mr. Fred is similar to the Rapala Shad Rap. They were marked under the bill as "Lil Fred" early and "Mr. Fred" in later production. $400 This is the Tiny Big O - This is the only one I have personally seen. I heard that there were three made without hooks as earrings and necklace set and one other. It is shown next to a quarter for size reference. $900 Then there is the Big-O Craw - $500 The last two are graduated smaller versions of the Big-O typically not seen. - $500 each By the collection and it will come wit the carton. Believe it or not, I sold egg cartons for $200 each to serious collectors who wished to display their collections in period and locale correct cartons.
