    Hug your family a little closer tonight.

    That is so right, GOD is still in the miracle business. Glad she wasn't seriously injured. When your kids start driving, that is when the grey hairs multiply exponetially.
  2. You are correct, this happened many years ago at an intersection with 2way stop sign and I stopped looked both ways and pulled out right in front of a woman riding a bright yellow motorcycle, I don't recall if she had her light on, but I think drivers get conditioned into looking for a car or truck profile. That is why it is so easy for pedestrians and children especially to be hit. Have you ever seen the video where sun was bright and there were shadow on the cars and a kid darts out to get a ball, without good polarized sunglasses all you see is glare. But all that aside the most dangerous thing we all do is drive a motor vehicle, an average of 3,287 people die each day because of vehicle crashes. And they say guns are dangerous. Be safe out there people.
  3. Peejman, I have taken countless safe driving schools and 1 thing they all had in common was the fact that running your lights all the time helped to prevent accidents. Especially on rural roads with curves, you will see a car with lights moments before you would have seen one without. Just my $0.02
  4. If you already have a .243 just shoot it. It isn't overkill for sure.

    Cold Enough for Ya?

    Just shows how soft Americans have gotten. It's real odd that Al I invented the internet Gore changed his tune from Global warming to climate change. At least that is exactly what it is, today may be warmer than the day before or could be colder. Duh!
  6. Hi guys, does anyone reload for AR pistol 5.56? I am looking something with as little muzzle flash as possible. I use IMR-4895 and it is pretty bright out of 10.5 inch barrel. Any comments appreciated. Thanks Mac

    Powder for reduced muzzle flash AR pistol

    Hey guys just saw this from shot show news. ARM American Reserve Munitions out of Idaho is going to be releasing soon a Stealth brand gunpowder with reduced muzzle flash. So my search may be over when they get this out. Thought I would pass the info along.
  10. First of all prayers to the Longworth family. I wonder if he had used a gun would the sentence be the same. He used a 5,000 pound bullet going 105.6FPS. Not real fast but 5,000 pound bullet. You see whether the weapon is a pistol, shotgun, AR-15, hammer, knife, GMC Sierra, if the person dies and it was your fault, well sorry you're going to have to do the time. Plus I think they need to pass laws against GMC Sierra's. Seems as though they are very deadly. As for a kid, sorry if you are 18 in my mind you are an adult and should be treated as one. IMHO, your mileage may vary
  11. Just saw on the news that French riot police now using semiautomatic weapons "assault weapons per U.S. definition". Kind of funny that they are going from tear gas and pepper spray to H&K G36 with live rounds. I guess they missed the rubber bullets or bean bag guns. They are using them against the unarmed yellow vest protesters which mostly are not violent. Maybe reason homeland security and IRS got all that ammo??

    Me neither, I wouldn't spend the night in Memphis for nothing. If I had a swat team outside my hotel room, still wouldn't.

    Cop shoots partner in back

    Well for what they get paid for putting their lives on the line, you can't blame them. Especially since the last few years and all the cop shooters. It used to be that a policeman was respected, but no longer. Of course it used to be that I was respected, no longer. Hmmm. Pattern here?? Yes it is easy to be arm chair quarterback here, everything happens at a split second, he may have had gun drawn and because of the dog trying to escape that took their attention. Personally if the dog was a viscous dog like a pit bull, I would have just shot him and ended that threat. No sense in either one of them getting bit. JMHO.

    Tennessee counties packing the most, least heat

    But Pickett, the county I reside has 11.3% of the 5,073 residents. We are the least populated of all Tennessee counties, Trousdale county has smallest area.
  15. I'm so old and memory loss is pretty bad, I think I once owned guns but don't remember exactly. As far as bedroom activities, I am like an old dog that chases the car, but can't drive it. LOL If I had guns, #1 they would be cocked, locked and ready to rock doc, #2 There would always be one in car and truck, more than likely more than 1. #3 Don't do drugs, don't even like taking a Tylenol after reading side effects. Any more stupid questions?

    Reed you are very fortunate to have both your grandfather and his nice pistol. Cherish them both, hand down that piece to your son or daughter along with some nice tales of your grandfather.

    Kids and Guns: A positive Article

    Pretty good article. Both of my older grand children, age 12 and 15 compete in 4-H competitions and are capable of putting venison on the table also. The 15 year old is my only grand daughter. It is very simple, teach them when they are young, whether it be the Bible or gun safety and they will not depart from it. It was driven into my head at an early age, started hunting by myself at 9, but dad knew I was safe and I knew there would have been some severe consequences if I had been unsafe with a gun. I am retired now, and I like to fish, and hunt, but there is something unique about going out and shooting clays or shooting targets with a pistol. Nothing compares it to me. The smell of gunpowder and the satisfaction that I can cut a card with a pistol of rifle some of time anyways is very enjoyable. Take a kid shooting, teach them gun safety, if you don't have a kid or grand kid nearby, find a single mom or a family that doesn't have the time or desire to shoot. I think all kids should at least have a chance to learn how to safely shoot and then let them decide if they want to continue. Just like I did with my son for sports, I told him I would support him and pay for the equipment as long as he wanted to and had fun. I hate to see parents push their kids into sports for their own ego.
  19. Hi all, looking for .22 competition within 1,000 miles of here. LOL Seriously I have looked and looked on the net and I can't find anything. There is a rimfire add on to USPSA steel challenge at Dead Zero but looking for a true all rimfire competition. Not particularly interested in benchrest. Thanks Mac

    Powder for reduced muzzle flash AR pistol

    Well I shot it in indoor range over the holidays and had some plinking stuff, and there were some that had hardly any flash, but most had large flamethrower flashes. I don't know what the ammo that had much flash were, maybe some a friend had loaded or?? So I do know that there is some powder with little flash. Thanks for comments. Mac

    Nashville officer charged in shooting

    Exactly why I say more gun laws won't make a difference to criminals, just the law abiding public. 10 years won't solve the problem either, a public hanging with the news crew filming it would have some solutions!! Thank you Defender, I wouldn't be an LE if it paid $1,000 per hour. Glad the outcome was good for you.
  23. Ya'll do know the difference in a Democrat and a Republican? 0, absolutely nothing. They are politicians, if their lips are moving, really good chance they are lying. The liberal left and the "conservative right" yeah right. The republicans have done absolutely nothing to make good laws. Oh you do know that if they make a law all the criminals will automatically obey them. Just like they are now obeying all the gun laws and such on the books. Even the illegal aliens are obeying the law and are not crossing the border illegally. I was thinking today that Pelosi and Schumer would have been tarred & feathered then hung for treasonist acts against the U.S.A. But that was back when the PEOPLE actually did run the country. Sorry for the long rant guys. Fed up with the whole flippin lot of them. My chickens are more valuable than the politicians, they give me eggs, cluck at me when they see me coming and they give me valuable fertilizer for my garden.

    Clueless teens, 17, baffled by a rotary phone

    Sure makes me feel old. Oh the rotary dial phone, and the party line. Hey Murgatroy I still have the flexible allen tool to set the points on a GM vehicle with window in distributor cap. This reminds me of the story of the gentleman that left his keys in his 1956 Chevy at the parts store and some Hispanic guys stole it, drove across town and paid $10 for gas but could not figure out where the gas filler door was. They left walking and the owner got his car back. Just like a 3 on the tree standard shift, most people under 40 would scratch their heads and go, Huh.
  25. I sure most here agree that we don't need any more gun laws as criminals continue to break laws everyday. Just remember that if you give them an inch they will take a mile. I have read several comments in the past from folks in the UK and Australia warning Americans not to cave in and give an inch. We all do need to contact our elected officials and voice our concerns. Tell them to look at places like Chicago, New York and other places with stringent gun laws and people are being killed each and every day. To me that proves that the gun laws are not effective in curtailing crime. Kinda like the wall on previous post by Ronald, it won't keep people out, it may slow them down but that is all.
