  1. New ones are too costly and I can't find a used one anywhere else so I figured I'd try here: Wanting to buy a used brush cutter, 48-inch with three-point hitch, for my elderly John Deere tractor. Woods, Bush Hog, King Cutter, or anything is fine as long as it has a stump bumper. Well-used is OK but shouldn't need major repairs. I'll drive a reasonable distance from Manchester to pick up. Thanks for looking, Whisper
  2. Reading the preseason predictions by all the sportswriters in the Tennessean on Saturday and then seeing the game on Sunday convinced me that this Nashville and theirs are not in the same universe. The Titans were laughably bad. I bet even the players' mothers turned the game off. Now, that Cleveland-Kansas City game....
  3. This has been an important line in the sand, and there are a number of RKBA groups, including the Firearms Policy Coalition and the Second Amendment Foundation, that have been fighting hard against Chipman, who is the poster boy for jack-booted federal thuggery. Withdrawal of his nomination is a major victory for the cause of freedom, and thus we should look for it to be largely ignored in the mainstream news media. And yes, the administration will certainly nominate another authoritarian gun-grabber for the post, but he or she won't be as bad as Chipman...simply because there probably aren't any others that bad. The enemies of freedom intended this nomination as a major blow against gun owners, and that blow has been successfully blocked. We should take a moment to savor that fact, even though we know more attempts are coming. Cheers, Whisper
  4. Looking on the FedEx site I just found the same page that Erik88 linked. I'm getting suspicious about these unsourced reports of a new policy....
  5. I doubt that their HR department has anything to do with it. However, I will bet dollars to donuts that someone in the current administration has had some conversations with the High Muckety Mucks at FedEx about staying on the administration's good side. "Nice little shipping company you have here; be a shame if something happened to it...." A little federal legislation can have some major effects on the profitability of industries.
  6. NewsNation (formerly WGN America) seems pretty balanced although it's not available on all cable services. No hysteria, no wild claims.
  7. She's not saying it dropped; she alleges her purse just swung out and the gun fired. Sounds less blameworthy than "I was fiddling with my holstered gun in my purse and accidentally fired it."
  8. Saw the Stones live twice, once in Atlanta and once in Nashville. Thanks for all the great music, Charlie.
  9. I see from the news clip the gun was in her purse in a SERPA holster. I think I can guess what happened here.
  10. Israel has 8.8 million people, total COVID hospitalizations right now 514. We're still talking a tiny percentage. Yes, vaccinated people do get sick, because no vaccination works 100% of the time for 100% of the population. In TN 95% of the people who have died of COVID in the last month weren't vaccinated. Maybe there's a clue there?
  11. This is a good argument. "Get the vaccine, dumbass! If you get COVID and die now, you'll be voting for Harris in 2024!"
  12. How dirt cheap? What condition? Send me a message. Cheers, Whisper
  13. Probably a long shot, but I'm having no luck looking elsewhere, so let's see what we have here: I'm looking for a 48-inch brush cutter with three-point hitch. New ones are crazy expensive and there must be someone in Middle Tennessee (reasonable distance from Nashville) with a used one. Should be in decent condition but doesn't have to be pristine -- hey, it's a brush cutter. Will be used mainly for range maintenance. Thanks for looking, Whisper
  14. Their show at the Ryman on Feb. 22. 2017. It was the third time I saw them. First time, back in 1974, Dusty and Billy Gibbons didn't have beards.
  15. There used to be an IDPA club that shot monthly matches at Terry Walden's range just outside Manchester. I shot a few matches there when I lived closer to Manchester. I bet if you called him -- (931) 728-0223 --he could tell you if the club still shoots there. Cheers, Whisper
  16. Another session with mine yesterday. It ran well, although I still didn't bench it at 50 yards. Next time. The gun cries out to the heavens for a red dot sight, and I'm going to see that this happens. Cheers, Whisper
  17. I've had a 9mm version for an entire day now. First day of shooting went well and the gun was a lot of fun. Handles well. Trigger is similar to that of a 10/22 trigger, but it's better. Still needs an aftermarket improvement. which I'll give it soon. Easy three-inch groups at 10 yards offhand with factory sights. (I was mainly shooting pistols yesterday and didn't focus on the PCC.) I plan to bench test it 50 yards next range session. I had a takedown 10/22 that I thought was rather flimsy, and this uses the same takedown mechanism but it seems more robust.
  18. When I was a kid my mother used to make squirrel salad, using her recipe for chicken salad but substituting squirrel for chicken. She made a rabbit variant also. Tasted fine to me
  19. Target Sports USA, my favorite online ammo dealer, has a bunch of 9mm training and self-defense ammo in stock -- Federal, Hornady, CCI, Winchester. Prices range from .44/round on up. I greatly like the Federal Syntech 147gr for training ammo in mid- or full-size guns, and it's one of the types available. Free shipping if you buy 500 rounds or more. https://www.targetsportsusa.com/9mm-luger-ammo-c-51.aspx Cheers, Whisper
  20. Aggressive panhandlers assaulting your car = why you have a can of pepper spray in your door pocket.
  21. Update -- A new Holosun 507K X2 from a different Amazon vendor arrived yesterday and is totally acceptable. I'm a satisfied customer...but will never order anything from the Holosun Store again. Cheers, Whisper
  22. This sign was posted at the range on Monday.
