  1. Hi guys, searched and didn't find what I was looking for here. Do any of you that attend church that has a security team know if there are rifles used anywhere? The reason I ask is as you know it is 6 times harder to accurately shoot a handgun versus a rifle. I know of 1 church that has a couple of men in their vehicles in the parking lot in strategic places where they can view the entrances that carry AR's. If you think about it, a van or 4 door pickup could pull up and out jump 4-6 armed assailants and things could go very wrong very quick. Just asking to see if a rifle or 2 in the right places would help strengthen the security? For instance if a shooter happens to come in unnoticed with a concealed handgun or some concealeable gun and be close to the front of the church and the security were say towards the back of the church the distance could be 25 yards maybe more. Just thinking aloud and wanting your opinions. Thanks
  2. I am sure everyone is watching this story unfold in Virginia. Let us pray that no one is injured in this rally. But also remember that the Revolutionary war was started because of the 1774 ban on gunpowder and the 1774-1775 confiscation of guns and gunpowder by the British. I was looking at some film clips of this mornings rally and noticed that all the police had these evil black rifles, how fitting. They use guns to keep the people from having guns??
  3. Well I guess I will put in my 2 cents. I am for constitutional carry. To me the 2nd amendment says I have the right to keep and bear arms and that it shall not be infringed. Duh what in that says I can't carry a concealed gun or 2 without the governments okay, charging me a fee to do so?? I will say that there are a lot, maybe even the majority of gun owners that are not safe with a gun. I have seen plenty of hunters handle a firearm unsafely, I bet you all can think of a time or 2 also. I don't have the answers, but I believe Dave TN has the right idea, every, let me repeat every gun owner and every person that carry's owes everyone that is around them to be competent in the firearm they choose to carry. I know most of you have seen the cop that was in a school or some meeting showing his proficiency with his Glock when he shot himself. Really it is people like that they shouldn't be toting a hawg leg around!! Makes all the proficient people looks like a bunch of bubba's that don't know gun safety. I apologize if your name is bubba. I have a good friend and that is his nickname.
  4. Will pray for you Grayfox. Like I always say, if I had known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of my body. But that is a lie because I would have done the same stunts. Hope you get to feeling better.
  5. We have lived here for 5 years and are still exploring this part of Tn. We always vacationed in the Smoky mountains, but we really feel that this part of Tn. near Dale Hollow lake is prettier by far and none of the traffic jams.
  6. From what I read about 20 minutes is average for police to get there. A .40 cal will get to the point at 1,000+ FPS. My SIL is a preacher and carry's a .45 Kimber on him every day. What is the old saying better to have it and not need it as need it and not have it. One of the reasons for us joining our church was the security team. Prayers for all involved.
  7. Oh btw, the real old woodworkers usually have a finger or part of one missing. LOL On the serious side though be careful, wood dust will kill you for sure. Have fun.
  8. Hey Greg, I have done a fair amount of woodworking, simple joinery though. Take a look on Youtube a guy named Steve Ramsey titled Make this box joint jig. I like his videos btw.
  9. I was expecting at least 1 person to say wedding ring. LOL My bad, I didn't correctly read the title.
  10. I have long ago said a firearm without ammo isn't even a good club. A 2 iron or baseball bat is much more effective. Slick Willy & Al I invented the internet Gore got me into reloading and I have been casting for 15+ years. It is nice to load .38 and .40 for less than it costs to buy .22lr.
  11. Merry Christmas all. Let us not forget what this season is really about. A virgin born savior that came to save the world, died on a cross and rose the 3rd day!! Happy Birthday Jesus!!
  12. However you may be sleeping on the couch after Christmas. It's your call guys!!
  13. I'm sorry that anyone has to die over drugs. That being said I am 67 and there has been a so called "war on drugs" for about 55+ years of my life. If the drug dealers are smart they will just pay off more people in the LEO and judicial system and go on as usual. Do you realize how many people are making money other than the drug dealers?? All these drug task forces seize a whole lot of money just out there on the west bound side of I-40, and they get to keep it to make their task force larger. There is a war on drugs like I am a award winning brain surgeon!!
  14. Doesn't this quote from the FBI make you feel so much safer?? Unbelievable.
  15. Well I did a little more research and it appears that the shooter legally purchased the Glock handgun in Florida because he possessed a FLorida hunting license, which I find crazy as he isn't a U.S. citizen or resident?? FBI is tight lipped.
