  1. I'm curious to know if a Defender or Commander slide will fit on a Colt New Agent (gutter sight) in .45acp? Cherokee Slim
  2. I got the bricks & connector & hose for a propane cylinder. I'll assemble it all when I get time and see what happens. Thanks for all the input.
  3. You may have created a monster here. Why are the "T"'s open on each end? It looks like I could get it all at Lowes. That's just standard fire brick, right? Why doesn't the top photo have something like that?
  4. I shoot Cowboy with Tenn Critr who has a fine lookin' knife on his belt made from a railroad spike. Something like the picture. So I got my hands on 6 rr spikes and want to try my hand at making a knife. No, I don't have a furnace. I do have a propane torch and am willing to waste a cylinder or so. I don't want to invest hundreds in a furnace yet. I'd have to sell a gun or something so I'm not ready for that. Do I have a chance at making this happen? I watch too much Forged in Fire.

  5. I remember some time back seeing a video where some enterprising young man hooked up a Glock I think, to a drone and showed it firing. I'd like to find that video so i expect someone here knows where it is. Imagine a Las Vegas Metro PD drone with a chain gun, or a semi auto .50 bmg from Barrett homing in on those hotel windows. Armed drones patrolling high above a crowd may be the future of events like these. Cherokee Slim
  6. The law specifically states that you can have a handgun in your car in a school zone. You just can't take it out of the car. I carried a laminated copy of the law in the glove box when I used to pickup grand kids at school. I never used it but I was ready. Cherokee Slim
  7. Smokey Mountain Knife Works just sent out their first in a long long time automatic knife catalog. It's only for residents of Tennessee. I took 6 Smith & Wesson Extreme Ops auto knives to Peru as gifts to LEOS I either shot with or just came in contact with. I still carry my original one with most of the finish worn off. I may cerakote it but that would double it's value. It's only about $25 new now. Just because I could I got the BOKER KALASHNIKOV in desert tan for about $50 delivered. It's button doesn't stick out like the S&W but it's still a good deal. They have knives from about $20 to several hundred so you can get whatever you want, or aren't worried about tearing up, my big deal. Register your email ahead of time to get their offers and they'll send you a 10% discount. I don't have anything to do with them, I'm posting because it's been a while since I've actually seen them for sale. Cherokee Slim
  8. You would have to legally export whatever firearm you wanted to take there, I took two to Mexico legally, after getting all the licenses there. The US paperwork used to be on the US Customs website, I haven't looked lately. My eye doctor just did it with two hunting rifles when he went to Uganda to hunt so it's not hard, just make sure you have all originals and notarized copies just in case. No one will accept a bribe. But gifts . . . . are another thing. Cash or a "not your best Leatherman" may help. Cherokee Slim
  9. In Colombia not-main stream were the only handguns available. I had a CZ in .22 and another in .32. To carry I was limited to under 9mm but realistically that was .38 special or .32 H&R revolvers. The Army Armory store had a stainless .38 special Taurus revolver from Brazil the day all my paperwork lined up so that was my legal carry gun there. Under 9mm is the rule in Latin America for not police or military. In Mexico it was S&W model 10. In Peru I started with the Taurus .380 and their .22auto, then got a Glock 25 in Lima. You take what you can get sometimes. Cherokee Slim
  10. Max out the credit card in one short three stop trip!
  11. She has spent four high school years in the Navy Sea Cadets. Also taking college credit classes at the same time. Beyond that I don't have a clue.
  12. My granddaughter has enlisted in the Army. I don't know why. But that's another issue. Things have changed since I was a Marine 50 years ago in everybody's boot camp. My daughter wants to know what will her baby will be able to take with her. Cell Phone? Laptop? What about clothes? I couldn't take anything. All my clothes went into a box to be shipped back to my mommy, way back. Will she have telephone privileges if she can't have a cell phone? She has to complete boot camp, then go home to finish college, then off to OCS for an officer's MOS of 30C or S or something. Thanks, Cherokee Slim
  13. Thank ya'll for helping me with this. I got to shoot one, it was fun, but so was shooting the Rising gun THP put in my trunk back in the early 70's. Can anyone give a coherent reason without flames as to why Marines only had the 3 shots in use in recent years? I know we always got the leftovers of just about everything but my Marines are constantly in was zones now and I don't understand why the Army needs full auto but Marines only need the 3 burst. I know, one shot one kill, but that doesn't apply here. So much.
  14. That is exactly what I was looking for. 3 shot burst for dummies. I've heard Marines were only issued M16/M4's with 3 shot/no full auto rifles in recent years. In the Southeast Asia War Games newbies were issued an M14 with no selector switch, reissued one with a switch after a month or so in country. I've never understood the need for a single shot or 3shot rifle for any of the services.
  15. Can somebody explain to me how a 3 shot burst works, mechanically within the trigger mechanism? I understand single shot and full auto, but how does a 3 shot work in an M4/M16 or whatever? Cherokee Slim
  16. Two years ago I got mine 6 or 7 weeks before it expired. I'm pretty sure I renewed on line immediately and I got it within a week or so in the mail. I had the new one in hand almost a month before the old one expired. Cherokee Slim
  17. We do not have gun registration in the United States unless you buy from a dealer. The guns are yours and what you do with them is no ones business. You don't need permission, a license or permit from anyone. Cherokee Slim
  18. 18 year old wounded and discharged medically, honorably, is the first that comes to mind.
  19. I missed this somehow. I was always whizzed that I could go to Vietnam as a Marine but couldn't buy beer or a handgun. This is a good one. Have a great new year! Cherokee Slim Handgun permit laws go into effect Starting Sunday, those who are 18 to 20 years old who are active duty, retired or honorably discharged from the military will be allowed to apply for handgun permits. Currently, Tennessee residents must be at least 21 years old to get a carry permit for handguns. Some lawmakers believe the law will help protect people by allowing people who know how to use weapons to carry them. The ”terrorist inspired” fatal shootings of five Chattanooga service members at a naval facility in July 2015 motivated the change. Lifetime handgun permit costs will decrease in 2017 from $500 to $200. Go to the state of Tennessee’s website for more information on handgun carry permits.
  20. That is one butt ugly pistol. About as bad as the current crop of Scorpion machine pistols. I saw the Glock Girl shoot the full auto Glock on Mail Call with the Gunny and unless you were providing close protection of a principal I don't see much use for it. Especially since you can get an MP5 compact for about the same size. Cherokee Slim
  21. This is exactly what I need!. It's about 1.5" longer and that amount of drop is what I need for a specific use. I ordered 4. Thank you for the help. Cherokee Slim
  22. I want to drop my IWB Alien Gear holsters deeper for more concealability for certain situations. Alien Gear doesn't make a longer set of belt hooks. Anybody have a source for this? Cherokee Slim
  23. A G26 from Academy last week. Just in case the election went down the toilet. Cherokee Slim
