    It's snowing

    From some of the news clips I've seen over the past few years, people in the snow belts are not any better at driving on/in snow than here in TN, even tho they've had lots more practice. I learned how to drive in the snow while I had my learners permit back in early '71, family was going to Callaway Gardens for spring break, it snowed the night before we left, and dad figured I might as well learn "how" to drive in snow, on a 2 lane North Carolina mountain road. Worst trip of my life, also the quietest as NOBODY said a word until we got down into GA and out of the snow.
  3. I've heard that saying for most of my life, but my mom would have no part of that growing up. I've done it a few times, and I've even seen her do it here lately at the ripe old age of 94.
  4. Great gesture, and any local toy drive for kids would appreciate those a lot.
  5. Have a buddy who gets him some every year over here in E TN, Watts Bar lake IIRC. Glad you had a good trip.
  6. I saw it within a few minutes of GT posting it up, I went into my gun room for about 5 hrs with no 'puter so I couldn't see them anymore. I was hoping they would go fast, and was right. Buyers will be pleased.

    What would TGO do?

    I would go with the Ruger based on the upfront cost, as you plainly stated "you THINK" you will shoot it/them more in your mind. IF you do shoot it (22 LR) more, then go for the S&W if the Ruger does not scratch all of the itch you have. You may end up with 2 quality 22LR's, but I can't see a down side of that from this side of the table.
  8. Welcome back. TC area is a good area to live. Enjoy.
  9. I'll throw the 17HMR out there for discussion. I have a 17HMR based on the reading/research I did back when I was looking. Numerous comments about the 17HMR is more accurate than the 22 mag but I don't have a 22mag to be able to compare the two. 17HMR ammo is $10-12/box of 50, but is fun to shoot just like any other rimfire cartridge is. 17HMR is capable of taking out foxes, groundhogs, etc., up to 150 yds according to numerous comments/posts on different forums. Comments indicate head shots are common on squirrels, and pretty much required due to the vmax type bullets do a lot of damage with body shots.
  10. It's all about the stock price, stock holders, and market share. And YE bonuses for the top dogs there. Nothing more.
  11. With all of the "fitness apps" available, it is not a big surprise IMO. Every app wants/asks for permission to "share" data, and some non-identifying data has to be the same, they find that "same non-identifying" data bit, and they have your profile. Then the targeted ads start.
  12. same blades (shape, size, etc?)????? I seem to prefer the "tighter" jimping on this recent one over the wider spaced jimping. What color/type of materials on the handles are you thinking about??? Just wondering????
  13. Ain't got any FS that I see. What you hiding out in the shed????
  14. I got this one for a potential Xmas gift to daughters' BF, but now I'm having second thoughts about it, as it sure fits the hand so well. Maybe he'll give me a reason not to be in the giving mood between now and 12/25. LOL
  15. Got mine today (#3), beautiful as usual, fits the hand very nice.
  16. There are a couple meat processors in Madisonville, one is Keith's on Hwy 411, and Morgan's on Hwy 411 as well. Both are almost within spittin' distance from each other.
  17. Guess I'm a noob at this, just one in house and he's holding another one for me now. LOL

    I remember going thru the same thing with Roxy out boxer. RIP
  19. Definitely in the oven if that's your choice, but I'm not willing to try that by any means of the imagination. Granted, if you are hungry enough, lots of things look appealing, but I've never been that hungry and hopefully never will.
  20. How 'bout some baked skunk??
  21. IF the gubberment says it's safe, then it's safe......right???
  22. I had to have the windshield on wife's Ford CMax (about 40 acres of glass on this model), and it cost me around $500 at Safelite in Knoxville about 18 months ago or so. Took 'em about an hour at their shop somewhere in west Knoxville, in some business park off of Lovell Rd IIRC. I had a $1000 deductible then so my wallet hurt for a bit.
