  1. That ain't nothin, gas jumped $.20/gal in 3 hours at Speedway in Cookeville 7-2-19. As for the levee's they shouldn't be needed because anyone with half a brain wouldn't have built a city on cotton bales in the middle of the danged swamp, several feet below sea level. DUH!!! Marquis De LaFayette didn't listen to his engineer.
  2. So in essence if we happen to have an evil black rifle, we could paint it or cerakote it dark brown or green and then it wouldn't be an EBR is that correct???

    It does Greg if you grew them yourself. If you had to go and buy them nah.
  4. Church security is a hot topic these days with all the crazy incidents. Security of all the church members and visitors are a must. Short list below. 1. All persons taking care of nursery or kids need to be vetted, you may not know if you have pedophiles, but do you know you don't?? 2. The team needs to be trained to handle the situation with the least amount of force, ie. don't shoot a guy that can be escorted outside and the cops called. But if shooting him is the only course of action do it. 3.Sometimes things like fire extinguishers, first aid kits, AED are overlooked. 4. Computer security. 5. Cameras at every entrance and as many areas like parking lots as possible, with multiple monitors and multiple people viewing them. 6. Everyone needs to take the security of their church seriously. 7. As many people watching as possible, my son's church also has 1 or 2 guys in their trucks in the parking lot keeping an eye on the entrances. The guys in the trucks have rifles just in case. You know a van with 4 people could roll up and do a lot of damage real quick. FYI we just joined a church last month and 1 of the reasons was their security team, I am getting older and it is comforting to know that somebody is watching out while we are in our services. Hope everyone helps to make their church safe.
  5. I have pondered what would have happened if our patriots hadn't been victorious at Yorktown, Lexington, Concord, Bunker Hill just to name a few. Those patriots layed it all on the line and by signing the Declaration of Independence basically defied King George III and were subject to death. Had these brave patriots not succeeded in winning those battles, the United States of America would never have been. Kind of sobering isn't it? Here is a link to how the war was paid for. https://allthingsliberty.com/2015/02/how-was-the-revolutionary-war-paid-for/
  6. Also from a safety aspect, make sure if you use bleach that you either wear a mask to keep from breathing fumes or work with wind. I was washing our Aunts house years ago and was using bleach and it made me sick. You can get pneumonia and other breathing issues so be careful.
  7. Because their wife wants it painted. LOL!!!
  8. But I shall not quit telling people that my AR-15 isn't an assault weapon. And I stand corrected on the truck and 2 iron as an assault rifle. I meant to say that they could be an assault WEAPON!! as they are not firearms or rifles.
  9. I hate to say it but don't believe everything wikipedia says!! Multiple times in that article they said assault rifle, that isn't what an AR-15 is. It is a sporting rifle. My old Winchester model 1862 pump .22 could be an assault rifle if you assaulted someone with it. So could a 2 iron golf club. Or a 5,000 lb. pickup truck.
  10. I will let ya'll read this as it is kind of long but very informative. https://gundigest.com/reviews/the-ar-16m16-the-rifle-that-was-never-supposed-to-be

    Gary consider yourself one of the fortunate ones. I grew up in a home where the only time we went into a church was when there was a funeral. Basically we were pagans. My parents were good providers and loved their kids, but church wasn't a part of it. I got saved as a Senior in high school, but really didn't do much in church for quite awhile other than keep the bench warm. At least I did get smarter in my adulthood, I did take my kids to church and them and all grandchildren will be joining us in Heaven some day. Yes I am thankful for my Church family that do all the VBS, plus many other ministries. Some children only hear about Jesus at a VBS somewhere.
  12. I take exception to them calling an AR-15 an assault weapon, it isn't until someone uses it to assault another person. The hammers in my shop are also an assault weapon if someone chooses to assault another person with it. I am TIRED of this cr@p!! So for an uninformed person they don't know an AR-15 is considered a long gun, at least if it isn't an AR-15 pistol.

    Pop Pop, sad to say but this isn't the world in which we grew up. Thank you for sharing your faith with us!! As for Church security, I believe that every church big or small should have a team that includes someone on the parking lot, someone watching the cameras that should be at all entrances and just keep your head on a swivel. We recently joined a Church and 1 reason was they have a security team. My SIL who lives in another state carry's a Kimber .45 on his hip every Sunday, he keeps it covered with his coat but it is there if needed. Sad but that is the facts. Church buildings didn't used to be locked either, but now are because people will steal and deface.
  14. I hate to be a smart alec but in Vietnam you would have had an M-16 not an AR-15. The guns themselves were okay it was the crappy ammo they had. As a side note that a lot of people don't know, the AR-15 was a civilian gun made by Armalite and the gov't was needing a light rifle in a small caliber and they asked could they be made full auto and there was the beginning of the M-16.
  15. Well from the start my only concern was the druggies and thieves being able to access 5 or more guns without even breaking into the home. I may call the sheriff this morning and have a chat with him. If the guns get into the wrong hands I will certainly call the Attorney General in Nashville and tell them I had expressed concern for them leaving guns unattended, 1 which was in plain sight when you open the front door. Thanks for all the comments guys.
