  1. Police handling of mentally ill. Bottom line: 9 officers against 1 man with a box cutter. Take away 1 officer for the off duty Mt. Juliet officer because he didn't have his vest nor his duty belt (I'm assuming). So we're down to 6 MNPD and 2 THP against 1 man with a box cutter. Watching the incident video, I truly believed they tried. However, I need to know why no one stopped and said "Hey, we have rubber bullets and tasers, we should try non-lethal force". It blows my mind that was not an option. If you know he is suffering from a mental break, cut the man some slack and try non lethal first. The majority of the officers had 5+ years and I cannot find a reason why it came down to all 9 officers firing their guns. I worked at Home Depot for 6 years and constantly used a box cutter. As an accident prone person, I can honestly say even with a sharp one fully extended, they would have been fine. Nothing super glue can't fix. Trust me, I've done it several times to avoid filing workers comp. MNPD has an issue with their response to calls like this. The decommissioned officer, well he deserves jail time. 2 rifle rounds after the mans body was on the ground? Yeah. Jail.
  2. I'm 100% pro-LEO but with you on that. Having said that I think that Chief Drake is a good man in a very difficult position right now. I think he has some really good officers as well. But there are bad apples every where and that is just something that has to sadly be peeled away. But hopefully Nashville is headed in the right direction. Mostly. They did just find a body yesterday in Crieve Hall where we used to live so I am kinda glad I am in the hills and not the city. The worst part about this case to me, is that even though he was given DNA info from the TBI nothing was done. Like I said before CA II was walking free while having murdered someone. I knew there was something off about him when I met him once. Luckily I was at a large funeral and didn't have to interact with him more than offering my condolences on his fathers passing. I can't imagine leaving someone behind bars and letting a guilty party walk free.
  3. This case is a really interesting one. The man who walked free since committing the crime is the scary part. I have actually met him before. I don't want to get into specifics but he's a dangerous person and the insane thing to be is that while awaiting trail he has been released from prison and is out on bond. Not only that, but he is working as a "care giver" for one of his family members and is receiving pay from TennCare for it. It blows my mind. Oh, and a few years back he had a fiancé die. Id Detective Dunaway arrested CA II, who knows. The fiancé may not have died. I'm of the opinion he should face charges, not just lose his pension.
  4. Honestly, the new Broncos are just too small. Cute in theory but TOO SMALL. If I was dropping $ on a vehicle right now, it would be the Explorer ST. I test drove one at F&L of Cookeville. Took it on I40 and I got up and into the triple digits and it drove amazingly well. Sounded like a damn muscle car too. However, my Expedition has the EcoBoost V6 and even that in the Bronco would be better than current options.
  5. Johnson Nursery! Amazingly awesome place for plants! @hipower If you ever get up this way again, maybe we can go shooting. We've been here 6 years and never been. There's about 1,000 acres behind us and our neighbor lets us go down to his old shrimp pond and shoot there. I know a Korean Vet that shoots at BoR and he's hilarious and super amazing. I wouldn't mind finally visiting.
  6. We left Nashville (Crieve Hall area) and moved to the plateau back at the end of 2014. We moved into our current home at the beginning of 2015. Cookeville is selling pretty high right now. I would recommend looking outside of Cookeville in the smaller "incorporated" areas. We live in an area outside of Cookeville (Jackson County) called Tick. Ridiculous name? Yes. But we live on a ridge between 2 valleys and honestly it's amazing. You have to look, but there are hidden gems for sure. But we're 15 minutes to Cookeville or Livingston. So it's super convenient. Cookeville has TONS of libs (thanks Tech) but there are tons and tons of conservatives. We live close to Bend in the River which is an outdoor range (less than 10 minutes away) but I haven't been there. I know quite a few vets that shoot there and love it. There are quite a few good gun shops up here. When we first moved here I frequented The Gun Shop and Trading Post in Livingston. I haven't been in ages though because Monkey said I spent too much money there. There is a shop called Outdoor Junction with a range also right off of 40, but I won't step foot in there. Bad experience while trying to buy. Quite honestly, I love our house here. We have 4 acres and it is quiet. "Town" is too busy for me, so clearly you know I hate going to Nashville now. BUT the beautiful part about living here is that we're really a middle area between Nashville and Knoxville. I can make it to either city in about 1.5 hours. Personally at this point, I prefer Knoxville for shopping but we still return to Nashville for Dr. Appointments and what not. If you are interested in help looking in this area, DM me and I can send you realtor names if you need one. Good luck!
  7. As cute as the baby Broncos of 1965-1977 were, I don't think they really counted until they made the full size in 1978 (just my opinion). I have a 1979 and she's a family treasure. I have considered selling Matilda several times and just never do. It's insane to me how well she rides for her age. And she can turn on a dime. The Bronco Sport should have been a hard no for Ford. I saw my first one the other day and felt sad. The Badlands should have been the release and they should have brought back a full size Bronco as an option. Also Johnny, you are right too. The Coyote engine would have been smart. We have a F150 with the Coyote engine and a Whipple Supercharger (it's basically a super snake minus the ugly add ons). Monkey doesn't drive like me, but when I am alone in Lucille, I love to whiz past all the "fast cars". They never see it coming and it makes me way too happy. The only disadvantage is, here in Cookeville we have PD, SO and THP so I gotta be a wee bit careful.
  8. I've got a bit of 12 guage. But I don't have a need for 20 guage. If you're up this way anytime soon, let me know. I can give ya a few or more boxes.
  9. I've only shot a Sig once. It was a .45. It was nice, but I guess I am a simple woman with simple taste. Glocks are just what I prefer. Especially for an EDC. And I have gotten now to where I don't carry my 29. I carry my 20. Meanwhile Monkey carries in his boot and elsewhere. It truly boils down to comfort.
  10. Nah, it's kind, but seriously we've got it covered. I am just parting with it because I honestly don't like it. I much prefer my G20. I know it sounds nuts, but it just feels better in my hand and I am way more accurate with it. Could all be just in my head, but 10mm is where it's at for me. The only .45 we have that I like is Monkey's old Springfield Armory 1911. He has a Les Baer, but it's a 4 1/4" and I prefer 5". We're all just weird with our own preferences.
  11. Nah, I make do. I raised $1,100 from word of mouth and selling part of my stamp collection. But thanks for the offer. Use it to buy ammo! That's why I am selling this one. I don't use it and he needs to be neutered. LOL He was in really rough shape when Mr. Monkey found him so the $1,100 went to antibiotics, wound care and a special diet because he was skin and bones. We've had 40 fosters in the last year. I don't mind parting with a gun I don't use to fund the care of the dogs! Thinking of selling my DPMS Gen II SASS also. But she's big, beautiful and black. So Glock first. Glad to hear you are well. Even with bad feet (Monkey) can relate for sure. He found a paid of Twisted X boots that seem to help a lot. So now I have a Monkey in cowboy boots. Which I never thought I would see!
  12. We just got a Redbone Coonhound who was dumped in a cemetery. And a French Bulldog who was going to be put to sleep because she has double hip dysplasia. We're up to 17 dogs and 2 cats now. At this point, I've given up on having a "normal" home. Hope you are doing well!!
  13. Not hiding! Just busy. Lots of dogs needing help up here. I also deleted FB. Still on IG though! Next time we're down your way, I'll reach out. Maybe we can grab a meal together. Depending on the whole COVID mess. Hope you and the Misses are well and doing good!!
  14. Glock 21 SF with Nickle Boron Slide. 6 mags (1 has cosmetic damage from curious coonhound, but still fully functional). Less than 100 rounds through it. I have used it in target practice only and just prefer the G20 over it. Located in Cookeville area. Asking $650.00 for everything. I also have a OWB holster I will throw in if you need one. Please have Tenneessee HCP to present at sale.
