  1. (Memphis area) I know this is kind of a long shot but, I have a disabled friend who is in desperate need of cheap, reliable transportation. The budget is $2500-3000. Looking for something like a mid-sized sedan, gets good gas mileage, preferably less than 150,000 miles. Must be in good condition, decent tires, A/C must work, AM/FM Radio with CD player. If you have something like this or know of a good car for sale, please PM me. Thanks. FOUND ONE ad closed

    OC an empty holster?

    There used to be a young lady assistant manager at my local movie theater that walked around with an empty holster on. I asked her about it and she just replied "Its not far away." I asked her if she realized that it made her a prime target? She didn't say anything after that.
  3. Pm replied to. Sold pending meeting.

    ad closed S&W Model 13-2

    In my opinion, that's the perfect carry revolver. I've had one for years and absolutely love it. I'm kinda glad Triple GGG beat me to it. I would have been sorely tempted to add another.

    An Educated choice in a first Handgun

    I only know the Jerico by reputation, which is quite good. As already mentioned, the .41 AE is a niche cartridge. Hard to find and expensive. So that really isn't a viable option. If you go semi-auto, 9mm is probably the best choice as ammo is fairly inexpensive and readily available. I advise that you find a range that rents guns and try several to find what suits you best. Many first time gun buyers end you buying something else later as their first one wasn't quite right for them. That's learning the hard way. For a beginner, its hard to beat the simplicity of a good double action revolver. Also for the beginner, buying a good .22 first is a good idea. Ammo is cheap, you can practice a lot and get the basic fundamentals of shooting down before moving on. Besides, you'll end up buying another gun before long anyway. That's just the way it works.

    Any use for CB radios?

    CB died with the invention of the cell phone.
  7. I'd suggest a medium frame (6 shot) .357 with a 3 or 4" barrel. For a semi-auto, a Commander sized lightweight 1911 in .45acp would work. BTW: carry comfort and concealability is more a function of a good belt and holster than the gun itself.

    Bobtail Remington

    I'm not a fan of bob tails, but I do own a standard R1 and can attest that its an excellent pistol. I think the Remington 1911s are an overlooked gem in today's market.
  9. Absolutely beautiful Smith & Wesson Model 19-4 6" barrel .357 Magnum. 98% condition with only a slight turn line on the cylinder. Made in 1980. Pinned and recessed. $650 the price is firm. Would like to trade for a Sig Sauer P226 or P228. Open to other trade offers.

    Who here is a Gun Flipper?

    Oh yeah, I think we've all had to go through the "gotta sell one to buy one" period. Thankfully, I've gotten well past that now. These days I need a valid reason to sell or trade a gun. More often than not its a matter of I bought something that just didn't work out for me or occasionally I'll trade into something I just didn't like. Once in a while, I may sell or trade one just because I don't ever use it. But mostly those just rest in the safe waiting for my sons to do whatever they will with them after I'm gone. Some of you may recall that a few months ago my truck needed some major repairs. I ended up selling six guns to cover the cost. Most of them fell into the I never use it category. But I'm gonna tell ya, it still hurt to sell those.

    Well learned something today!

    Typical liberal attitude. Laws are for you, not me.

    What are you reading right now?

    If you liked One Second After, try reading Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank. Its an older book written at the height of the Cold War back in 1959 about a small town in Florida which happened to be in the right place to survive a nuclear war. An interesting look at ordinary people trying to get by when the rest of the world has gone up in flames. Excellent read.

    New Colt Cobra

    I don't rightly remember. There were several. Mind you in those days I was working night shift in a bad neighborhood. Hearing gun shots while you worked was a common occurrence.

    New Colt Cobra

    I've looked long and hard at the new Cobra. My first legal carry gun was a 3rd Issue Detective Special and I love it. However, now days its worth too much for EDC. The new Cobra is a nice gun. Feels good in the hand and the triggers on the ones I've seen are nice. But frankly I was put off by the rough stainless finish, the grips and that fiber optic front sight. It just don't look right. I'm waiting to get a look at the Night Cobra with the black finish and a different front sight. That one I just might buy.

    What are you reading right now?

    Sandstorm by James Rollins. This the first in his Sigma Force series. I actually discovered this series in the middle, have read several of them and now I'm going back to the beginning to see how it all started. Synopsis: Sigma force is a black ops division of DARPA which investigates threats of a scientific nature. Basically, its scientists with guns. Rollins is an excellent writer. His science and history are both accurate and sound, plots plausible and his style keeps you enthralled. I highly recommend them.
