    Leaving Michigan

    YEP! There is so much to like about Tennessee and it's people that people are moving here in droves. The prices of land and homes are going to go up. But if you're some right wing radical, please stay home.

    Now, click your heels together three times and say "There's no place like home, there's no place like home."

    It happened in 1964...

    If I recall, the first ones came out at $1400 and a little bit. I remember when Ford came out with the Mustang. It was pretty much to combat the VW bug. It started out with a 6 cylinder engine, no radio, stick transmission, and it didn't even have a door on the glove box. If I remember right, it was the first unibody construction that entered the market. Only problem with that was it wasn't strong enough to put 4 high school football players in. OH! let me take that back. You could fit them in [barely], but you couldn't close the doors. Frame sagged too much. Later they came out with Mustangs with a 289cc engine in it. It was stronger than the 6 banger but not much. Then they came out with the real muscle cars, in [460] I think. With the right tires, you could almost get the front wheels off the ground. That is just before you snapped a rear axle or drive shaft. Ahh those were the days. That one pretty much kept up with dodges 426 heimie. [I know I didn't spell it right. What do you want from a 71 yo construction worker.]

  5. Not happy with gold dot, especially in my 380. Hole is too big for the guns to function 100%.
  6. +1 I tried other self defense type ammunition, couldn't get them to function 100% of the time. Hornady works every time. I sure don't use it for practice, It cost too much. Checked it out, It expands well.

    Firearms burnout

    It's a great sport, and you can get into it as little or as much as you want.

    Welcome Tom. There's nothing wrong with military brass. Best stuff for reloading I can think of.

    Remember about 10 years ago.... when

    I remember. If I[m right the ammo was corrosive as hell.

    gregintenn, you just ain't old enough. I got '68 American Rifleman magazines with carbines a lot cheaper than that.

    Remember about 10 years ago.... when

    I remember going to the gun show and seeing guys with two wheelers rolling out the door with the two wheeler full of 762x39 ammo that they bought for $99 a case. The non corrosive had 990 rounds {I think} in a case and the corrosive had 1190 rounds in a case. AK's and SKS's were $69- $79 each depending on condition. Some were unfired, some had folding stocks. Who would have guessed that stamped out piece of crap would go up in value 8-10 times. I remember the rifle range at the club 4-6 inches deep with steel cases. Those were the days. The middle and lower income guys could afford to buy and feed a high powered rifle. The dealers were even selling the empty cases the guns came in.

    News we all have been waiting for....

    Has anyone tried them lately? They sure don't taste like the ones we had when we were kids. I bought some for my grand kids. They gave them back.

    Should I take a chance on a Tikka T3

    I can tell you that my wife and I came to an agreement some time ago. If I buy a gun she gets equal money in jewelry.It's sure kept my gun buying to a minimum. But even so, she has a hard time getting through the metal detectors at the airports. Some how, like every other man, I end up on the short end of the deal.
  14. What is the condition of the rifling?
