  1. Everybody has a valid "argument". But that doesn't change the fact that hospitals pre-vaccine were overrun with Covid patients who all of a sudden couldn't breathe so well and etc. How many folks with other ailments who croaked simply due to the previous norms for care being impaired we'll never know. The fact that it's happening again in the US, where anyone can get the ouchie on a moment's notice, just reinforces my glass half empty view of the species, or at least the Murican subspecies in this case. Hell, at least half the world can't even get the vax at all. - OS
  2. I wagered 2.99 for the Kindle version. Which usually means I won't read it till I'm stuck out of town somewhere for a day or three, but eventually. Thanks. - OS
  3. Ignorance is strength! What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Unless you're a Covid long hauler. - OS
  4. Yay, we're #1 again! Tennessee ranks No. 1 in the U.S. for largest increase in new COVID-19 cases
  5. Just a followup, been toting the Hellcat in the Alabama Holster for a few weeks now, love it. Little things make a big diff with pocket carry, and with the extra rounds, it first felt rather heavy compared to the Kahr, but that feeling went away purt quick. And the pinky extension added an unacceptable degree of difficulty for quick deployment (so did same for the Kahr), so using with 11 round flush mag, with another one in another pocket. This thing really shoots like a bigger heater too. Snap/recoil not objectionable at all. The HC's trigger release/reset is great, much more conducive to accuracy than the Kahr's trigger, which while smooth, even with lots of practice you just could never feel exactly when the thing was gonna go bang, and it has a very long essentially zero-tactile reset. - OS
  6. I didn't personally know anyone at all who has died of Covid. So according to your premise, it's valid to surmise nobody has died of it at all. - OS
  7. Is it an alien concept here that one can simply ignore any given thread? Btw, Covid Delta is making a pretty significant upswing, especially here in the South, so traditionally now would be the appropriate time to double down and dismiss its importance. - OS
  8. Medical prevention/treatment of any malady is all about probability based on the availability of scientific evidence. In the US, some 600 Covid vaccinated people have so far been documented to have died with Covid itself being the primary cause of death. Compare with the +600K non-vaccinated folks who Rona croaked. I'll take the odds offered by that "worm" any day. - OS
  9. That a brand or a type or what, google no help. - OS
  10. It has been the existing policy to deny gun purchase if any alcohol related conviction has occurred in the last year, like PD or DUI. This has been a fairly long standing policy based on TCA 39-17-1316(a)(1), and to my knowledge has not changed. Still in the TBI Guide for FFLs publication, page 5: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjLnaeL58fxAhUem2oFHXgGBPkQFnoECAYQAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.tn.gov%2Fcontent%2Fdam%2Ftn%2Ftbi%2Fdocuments%2FFFL_TN_Guide_2016.pdf&usg=AOvVaw0jVNBiW3WJv96fbhGNenjl - OS
  11. Okay. Still lower yet. TN average daily Covid deaths: (2020) March 0.7 (first death 3/21/20 but averaged over entire month) April 5.8 May 5.3 June 8.0 July 14.7 Aug 22.5 Sept 23.2 Oct 29.0 Nov 41.9 Dec 74.3 (2021) Jan 88.4 Feb 62.8 Mar 15.9 Apr 9.7 May 8.1 June 3.8 total TN deaths thru 6/30/21: 12,568 - OS
  12. Obviously I meant re Covid -- certainly the 40-60 age group isn't particularly high risk re seasonal flu. But of course, Covid hasn't really killed anyone at all, so why even mention it, right? - OS
  13. I'd expect lots of sick Americans again by early winter. The death toll shouldn't be anything like before but still likely significant, and likely most from the 40-60 age group. - OS
  14. Still on a downward path, but stubbornly. TN average daily Covid deaths: (2020) March 0.7 (first death 3/21/20) April 5.8 May 5.3 June 8.0 July 14.7 Aug 22.5 Sept 23.2 Oct 29.0 Nov 41.9 Dec 74.3 (2021) Jan 88.4 Feb 62.8 Mar 15.9 Apr 9.7 May 8.1 total TN deaths thru 6/1/21: 12,465 - OS
  15. Great minds... I've pocket carried my Kahr PM9 for at least a decade now, 6+1 with 6 more in another pocket. Probably plenty. But I never had quite the same secure feeling of my first 3 years or so with an XD subbie carried IWB. So got by Harvey's the other day, first time in well over a year, and surprisingly they had just gotten some Hellcats. Compared to the PM it is .5" longer, all other dimensions same. No brainer, jumped on it. Soon as my Alabama pocket holster comes in, I'll be doing 11+1 plus whatever spare I decide on (Springfield is making a 15 rounder now, so that might be an option). Also, though the Kahr is rather unique trigger which I don't hate, I do prefer the exact release point and short reset of the Hellcat. I do wish they had named it something a bit less bellicose sounding just for the PR of carrying in general, but whatever. - OS
