  1. Las Vegas Shooting

    Not sure if true, but... https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-lasvegas-shooting-islamic-state/islamic-state-claims-las-vegas-shooting-u-s-officials-skeptical-idUSKCN1C71SP
  2. Las Vegas Shooting

    This just sucks. T-minus until the political-elite use this as another event to push anti-2A laws. I feel bump-fire, full auto, and binary triggers will be targeted first along with high capacity mags and bulk ammo.

    Finally got all the Kooks exhaust in. I'll get the off road cat delete pipes next to swap in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I think I got everything updated correctly now on the OP... Reciprocity Recognition of Out-of-State Handgun Carry Permits Tennessee now recognizes a facially valid handgun permit, firearms permit, weapons permit, or a license issued by another state according to its terms, and will, therefore, authorize the holder of such out-of-state permit or license to carry a handgun only in the state of Tennessee. The person must be in possession of the permit or license at all times such person carries a handgun in Tennessee. Tennessee will enter into written reciprocity agreements with other states that require the execution of such agreements. If a person with a handgun permit from another state decides to become a resident of Tennessee, such person must obtain a Tennessee handgun permit within six (6) months of establishing residency in Tennessee. All applicants, regardless of permits issued by another state, will be processed as originals. The applicant must be twenty-one (21) or is at least eighteen (18) years of age, and is an honorably discharged or retired veteran of the United States Armed Forces or is a member of the United States Armed Forces on active duty status and includes with the application a certified copy of the applicant’s certificate of release or discharge from active duty (DD214) or includes with the application a military identification card as proof that the applicant is on active duty member of the military, take a DOS approved handgun safety course, complete the Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit application, provide proof of U.S. Citizenship or Lawful Permanent Residency, pay the fee, and be fingerprinted. Licensing requirements are not included in the reciprocity agreements between states. The mutual recognition of handgun possession privileges between states has not changed and is listed on this website. A facially valid handgun permit, firearms permit, weapons permit or license issued by another state shall be valid in this state according to its terms and shall be treated as if it is a handgun permit issued by this state; provided, however, the provisions of this subsection (r) shall not be construed to authorize the holder of any out-of-state permit or license to carry, in this state, any firearm or weapon other than a handgun.

  7. New Wheel Gun

    I had one of these my dad bought me when I was a kid. He got rid of it for some reason and I always wanted another because it was such a fun little pistol to shoot. Finally picked up another yesterday. Stainless Ruger 22LR/22WMR New Model Single Six: Who else likes these? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Why do I need an AK-47?

  9. Show me your FAST cars and trucks!

    Tune was off. Still more work to be done. The best I could do in the hot humid air on street tires. Car 8203 First on Race Day?
  10. Show me your FAST cars and trucks!

    About to head to Beech Bend Raceway to see if I have improved my junk over stock or not. Wish me luck! Previous best there was 8.55 1/8 and 13.1 1/4 on stock tune with just intake and catback, no tune.

    I've not had a chance to keep up with the new laws. Got a link to it?
  12. Show me your FAST cars and trucks!

    I run two so I can see what's happening on each bank. I run these: http://www.aemelectronics.com/?q=products/gauges/digital-gauges/x-series-wideband-uego-OBDII They're pretty much plug and play and work with HPTuners.
  13. Post the last firearm related thing you bought!

    Mags. I buy them every chance I get. Hey, I grew up in the Clinton Era Assault Weapons Ban.
  14. Getting to know you. What do you do?

    I work in corrections. I supervise some bad mofos. I've worked all the maximum security units where the baddest of the bad are housed. Right now, my post is Death Row. I call it the country club for killers for a reason. We have levels, A, B and C. A levels are able to walk around me free as a bird, no cuffs, shackles, nothing. We qualify with and carry weapons only outside on patrol, medical runs, transport to court, etc. But inside, we have nothing. Not a baton, mace, I mean nothing. If it goes down, all you have is a red panic button on your radio that sets off a body alarm in central control, and your hands, fists and feet. Well, I do wear a shank vest (looks like a bullet proof vest) and a face shield. Face shields worn on units 1 and 3. If you piss them off, they'll try to spit on you or sling ####/piss on you. knock on wood, I've not pissed an inmate off enough to get "#### out" as they call it. Shanks are found often. They have them, we don't. lol LEO's catch them, we CO's have to live with them. I just wanted to try something different. I actually like it. But I'll probably move in to some other branch of law enforcement before it's over.
