    Selling resources for eastern TN

    The real busy season I've noticed is tax season. Apparently some people need to create liquidity around early April.

    Good holster threads?

    The Squared Away Custom option @prag linked looks solid, and @TGO David isn't known for blowing his money on anything wasteful aside from well done steaks, so I'd find it hard to believe it's not good gear. Another option is below...small veteran owned company who isn't a big manufacturer, just focused on quality. I don't own one, but enough guys on another site I frequent are, and they give him glowing reviews. https://2aholster.com/product/iwb-soft-side-iwb/?v=7516fd43adaa

    ^ This ^ Being a benefactor of TGO is worth it even if I'd never been able to buy/sell or do so again in the future.

    Good holster threads?

    Holsters are like anything else...we need to know the intended use before making informed recommendations. One holster may be great for daily carry, but suck for the range or sport shooting, and vice versa.

    HA HA, NOT SURE WHAT FORUM TO POST IN .....

    Complaints are usually in some ratio to customers...so that explains the zero numerator.

    I'm glad for once that the "show" part of this sub-forum isn't a factor in a thread.
  7. Patriotism can be shown by both the disabled boy who stands, and the NFL player who kneels. They're not mutually exclusive in my book.
  8. Letting the Chicago PD "do their job"...hmm, what could go wrong? https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/oct/19/homan-square-chicago-police-disappeared-thousands

    Windows 10 update

    There are a couple work around routes if Linux isn't robust enough for you. 1) Dual boot drive. Most LinuxOS flavors will let you install a dual boot, where you partition your hard drive. I tried this on a Win7 box a while back, but not sure how it would work with Windows10. 2) Make Linux the primary OS, and run a version of Windows in a VM. Virtual Box works well enough, but I'm sure there are others. Not saying it's the be all, end all...just that you have options outside of what large corporations think is best for you (when it's really best for them).

    Windows 10 update

    Not all. But it does well with videos, music (I use VLC), internet browsers are good, and their version of office is good enough for the house. Yeah, Linux for work isn't practical. But, at work I have an IT section to keep everything patched up, direct any issues to, and can get a new computer the same day if needs be. At home, it's just me, and Linux makes management of everything quite easy.
  11. Last time Chicago was under some semi-balance of order was in the era before Capone. Since then it's been some variation of criminal element running amuck. It's still a safe enough place to visit, just keep to the tourist spots and don't wander into a bad area.

    They just want to see how much hair is growing in your ears nowadays.

  14. Meh, back when hands came off for thievery, we still had plenty of thieves taking the risk anyway. Crime is a constant. Do what you can to mitigate it (locked doors, keeping valuable items out of eyeshot, ect.) and punish it- reasonably- when you catch the perpetrators. Not much else to be done unless we want to get into dystopia mode over it. There is plenty of God all over the country no reintroduction required. Nobody is in a bind if they want to find religion. If they want to push it on others through government, however, they'll find resistance...which I'm all for.

    HCP renewal online address

    Naa, I just renewed mine today. I suppose it stems from them already having your fingerprints on record. Had to re-answer all the proforma questions, and list any addresses for the past five years. Logic suggests they'll run a fresh TBI check and since I expect nothing unfavorable, hope they'll get my permit in the mail before too long.
