    What kind of accuracy do you get from your AR?

    Testing on a variety of Ammo is important. I played around with about 20 different kinds, and found my rifle seems to like the Wolf Steel-cased stuff in .223. 6" groups at 200 yds on a bench and bags w/ 12x scope. - K

    9mm subcompact choice

    My wife has the Ruger and I've shot it many times, it's a good gun! Doesn't like wimpy ammo, I've shot some lighter loads on it and it didn't eject well. Quality factory rounds or full-power loads with 124 gr. bullets all fired fine. - K
  3. LOL! I got to use an AR with one a while back when Fighting Sheep Dog hosted a Toys for Tot's drive out at Windrock.... Man, what a blast! Clearly though, once you have one, you have to get a complete set. I have a hard enough time affording Ammo as it is, can't imagine what I would go through...
  4. Is this a great group of people or what? ..... And why does it seem everyone but me has suppressors?!

    Tired of being tired.....

    Ditto Sidecarist. My job can and will blow up the phone 7-days a week. You have to set the limits because your employer won't. They will constantly push for more. - K

    Clueless looking for handgun for husband

    Welcome. You are one special lady. He is a lucky guy. Ditto on the range date idea, and getting your permits together. My wife and I did. Make that your gift. Best advice I got about picking out a gun was to go to one of the nicer/larger local gun stores with a range (NOT Academy, Dicks, Bass Pro, etc.), and try every damned one in the case they will let you. Eventually one or some will stand out and you will know which one to buy. Getting the wrong one is an expensive mistake. - K

    Bud's Gun Shop

    I like going into Buds to fondle all the exotic and expensive rifles I would otherwise never get to see up close!

    Packing heat...

    The boys over at Vol Market #3 are former Marines, always open carry, on the edge of a rough part of town.... Nary a problem with the locals, and they cash checks (aka - lots cash in the register). Funny how that works?

    T Shirt Reprints?

    I know it hasn't been that long, but it's fairly worn from all the use and washings..... Can we request a reprinting of the 2nd Amendment T-shirts w/ TGO Logo (What part of the "Shall not be infringed don't you understand")? I usually get a lot of compliments when wearing it, but it's fading and getting holes in it. Would love to order another one or two, if it were possible? Thanks. - Kevin

    If it's possible, consider renting a place for a year before buying a home, to see if you really like an area (easier than moving!) When we were looking to move down here, we visited several times, and even put an offer in on one place (never worked out). Glad it didn't, as we ended up on the other side of town. We have now purchased land and are building a house, but 45 minutes away from where we first started shopping. Now that we've been here 3 years, I'm glad it worked out the way it did.

    LOL@ Different planet. It's funny, takes a while to get used to everyone waving, and the first few times someone chat's you up at the grocery store will be unsettling. It is a nice change of pace, though. Learned to slow down and take it easy real quick. The left-lane drivers will make you nuts, however. We looked at Southern Blount county area (near Maryville), gorgeous views, still some good land available 'cheap'. Oak Ridge is more urbanized and older, so it's a different environment than the surrounding towns. If you make a trip down again give a shout and we'll get lunch! I actually found a fair pizza place in Oak Ridge w/ a former NY'er behind the counter. Little Nicky's got a decent NYC style pie. - K

    Well hello there Knifemaker, where 'bouts in Yankee'dom you hailing from? Originally from Buffalo/Rochester area myself, moved down here 3 years ago. It's been great! We're living a little outside Knox, west side on Watt's Bar lake, but I commute to town for work, it's not too bad. Give me a shout if you have any questions. Would HIGHLY recommend visiting this area to get to know the area's, the suburbs are all a little different, each with it's own charm, and it would suck to relocate 800 miles, only to wish you'd bought on the other side of town. - Kevin

    Shooting, at 100yds all for fun

    I have one of the Ruger American .22's, great little bolt gun. If I'm on my game, I can hit 9 out of 10 at 100 yds on the steel range at the club.
  20. That's what I carry, and am satisfied with it's accuracy.The shooter I think needs more practice than the gun in my case, LOL! - K

    wanted Wtb: Metal car port

    My wife picked up a cheap plastic-tarp variety from china mart last year that we've been using as a hay-tent. Ain't pretty, but it's been serviceable for the last 2 years, we even had to move it once. Was under $200

    Someone explain this to me!!

    This is where I started to believe the calls and stories for the 'end of the American Empire". Much like happened to Rome, I didn't want to believe it, but heard someone say/write (and I'm paraphrasing here), but when the laws cease to be about protecting the people, you know you're nearing the end of the line. This may not be the best example, however it is one of many, where your gut just says things ain't right. Have trust in your instincts, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
