JT59's Achievements

Just Getting Started

Just Getting Started (2/5)



  1. Got one a few months ago. Standard type stock. Fun to shoot and accurate for a pistol caliber carbine. I put on a low power shotgun scope and at 50 yard shots are in about a two inch group. I have bad shoulders so this will be my new "big gun".
  2. Memphis is one of the reasons the carry permit system was changed. It was in the papers about 25 or 30 years ago revealing the bribes taken to issue permits to people who did not qualify. If a huge flood flushed the city into the gulf it would be a good thing for Tennessee.

    Carry History

    1996 to 2012 sig 220 in 45acp 2012 onward sig 239 in 9mm
  4. I was a scout leader for about 15 years. Our troop was very active in many outdoor sports including shooting. I was NRA certified for rifle, pistol and shotgun. We had several adults with different certifications so that we could stage troop level shooting weekends. I have been out for a few years, but I saw the newer boys and parents becoming less active in outdoor sports even before the covid. Scouts would be sort of lame if you are not going to shoot, ski, canoe or backpack in the wilderness.
  5. I do not remember much from 25 years ago. I was glad when they changed the permitting rules and the class was fun.
  6. As a kid used a single shot 410 with #5 shot. As a teenager used a pistol for squirrel. My shooting skills have gone down hill the past forty years.
  7. We have a contract on our house and I keep finding boxes and ammo cans full of ammo in odd places. I don't remember buying all this ammo and I even found a pistol which I had forgotten about. I am sure it has nothing to do with my age. All the cool kids were born in the 50's right?
  8. You should post this on the FAL files, they would find it interesting.
  9. I think it was Nashville Motorcycle Repair that worked on my son's old bike. They did a good job. This was several years ago.
  10. We will see more attempts by gun control groups and others to use school walkouts. Some school systems have stated that they allowed, but did not endorse this activity. I think we all know this is BS. Contact the members of your local school board and ask each of them why they allowed this political stunt to occur at school. Keep track of where they stand on this when it is time for school board elections.
  11. If you know an exhibitor you can volunteer to help them set up and work the booth. This gets you in the door before the visitors and is an excuse to stay for the entire event.
  12. Many years ago my wife and I were at our local credit union to get a car loan when a masked man with a gun came in. We were in a small side room with a big window to the lobby and I never considered confronting him unless he started shooting people. My wife realized what was happening  as he was running out the door, she said "Get your gun, stop him" so I said " Are you crazy, this a good example of  why I will never buy you a handgun" I never told her that I was wearing my gun. Family first, everyone else depends on the situation and very far down the list is everything else.
  13. If you live near Fairview you should try Martin Murphy at 615-799-0349. I use him for everything but medical. We had Allstate for 30 years but the rates kept going up and we only had one claim in about 1988 so we just let him find the best rates for home and auto.
  14. If you plan to have kids try Williamson County. Prices are almost reasonable in Spring Hill but not as low as Fairview. 840 has cut back on the time it takes to get to many places.
