  1. Actually, no -- I still have it, and was going to take it to a gun show, but there hasn't been one lately. Let me know if you're interested. Thanks for looking, Whisper

    As Garufa says, they are still in business but sell via mail order; no internet sales. You can check Gunbroker for secondary sales of T-grips -- Robertson's Trading Post right here in TN often has some in stock, and they do sell online.
  3. The SRO is right. Open carry of a knife on school property is prohibited. It was contained in SB1438 in 2014, but I don't know the precise sections of the TCA that it affected. It's practically the only knife law left in TN. You can carry a knife on school property; it just has to be covered up.
  4. It's sad to see the NRA getting bad publicity like this, but I fear it's necessary if we are to clean out the crooks and put the organization back on track and doing what it's supposed to do. Turn on the bright lights, open the books, and if the cockroaches all flee, the NRA will be better for it.
  5. It did. It got a limited release, about two weeks as I recall, in a few major markets. The part about Gault being unemployed and living with his daughter is one of the fairly few places where the movie varies from fact. Gault worked for the Highway Patrol after he and Hamer left the Texas Rangers, and he was still doing that when Hamer convinced him to join the trackdown of Bonnie and Clyde.
  6. My point is still the same: Why did you seize on this particular line of dialogue, from among all lines from all the characters in the film, and decide that this line represents the personal opinions of the screenplay author?
  7. Governors can have their insurance commissioners take exactly this sort of action. Of course it's corruption for a government to use its regulatory authority to attack legal businesses just because those in power don't like the organization...which is why the ACLU is supporting the NRA in its lawsuit against New York.
  8. The writer of The Highwaymen is John Fusco, who's written tons of Westerns, and the religious film The Shack. There are lots of varying opinions expressed in The Highwaymen, including comments by some characters in support of Bonnie and Clyde. Fusco wrote those lines, also. Do you think that Fusco is actually favorable toward Bonnie and Clyde? It's a screenplay about a series of historical events. Every line spoken by every character doesn't express the personal opinions of the author. So, can you explain precisely why you decided he's a liberal (I've not seen anything indicating his political opinions) and that he's writing out of total ignorance (from all accounts he researched the lives of Gault and Hamer carefully)?
  9. Excellent deal. I would jump on it also. Good for Kimber; it's excellent to see them doing the right thing for customers. Cheers, Whisper
  10. Now I really need to go back and watch it again....
  11. I didn't see your letter, but from your description, it was probably specific enough. Blackburn just chose to respond with a generic "I support RKBA" letter instead of saying anything about red flag laws. To me, that suggests she hasn't decided whether she will vote for or against the red flag bill, and she wants to preserve her options, but she also wants to mollify you with a vague statement that isn't really a commitment, but might be interpreted as one. But perhaps I'm too skeptical about politicians and their motives....
  12. It's certainly not a waste of time, and good on you for doing it. You just need to be careful in reading politicians' replies. Blackburn gave you some vague generalities about supporting the Second Amendment, but said nothing about the specific issue that was the topic of your letter. Anyone can claim to be in favor of the Second Amendment -- heck, even Obama says he supports the Second Amendment -- but when faced with an actual vote on Second Amendment issues, most politicians will vote against freedom.
  13. Looks like a generic "Letter for RKBA Supporters." Doesn't address the red flag issue specifically, which doesn't surprise me. The red flag issue is going to show clearly who is on the side of the Constitution and who is not
  14. I'll need to watch that again. My recollection was that they showed the back of the sign *before* Frank opened up on it with the BAR, but perhaps I'm wrong. For sure those BAR rounds would have no problem shooting through a highway sign, so that would count as a serious technical error in the film.
