  1. Episode 54 Deals with a discussion (info exchange) with a Lawyer in Nevada they have on Retainer (or some agreement to contact her for defense cases). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=juH8XtTjGWE Anyway, the main thing I was surprised about is: My name was mentioned at just after 49 MIN when they read a comment I had sent in after watching Episode 53. BTW, I did receive a tumbler (drinking container with lid - nice one with CCWSafe printed on it) that was a surprise also. And, I was amazed they read my comment on the Podcast
  2. Just passing some INFO in case anyone is interested or maybe know someone that might be interested in a CONCEALED Carry Permit. There is an ONLINE course for TN CONCEALED Carry by SFWA in case you can't find time to attend a class in person. The fee is $28 (very reasonable). I am not sure if this is a CONCEALED ONLY Permit (seems to be that per literature, but there is a mention of FREE Range Time with Instructor at Family Fun Indoor Range in Sevierville, TN). Maybe, ENHANCED Permit can be added??? There is a Registration Form with
  3. AGREE and fact is in my opinion most folks don't take the "responsibility" to do the research, learning or training. EDIT 03-08-20 - Talk of Responsibility - It is not to hard to find examples of folks not acting responsible in many areas: I include driving (so we have some regulations and training for Driver License); Manufacturing of Products (most improvements in products come from regulations); And as far as gun owners, I think there are many irresponsible owners (Couple of EsX, ever see signs shot up on highways by drive by shooters, and in many cases there is a a houses in areas be
  4. This Thread has been an interesting read with a lot of different view points. Thanks - Good Web Site for making one think beyond the Extreme Conservative or Extreme Liberal views. Of course we all know Bad Guys get guns and don't worry about permits, or signs that say No Guns Allowed. Still, I am about as scared of some CC that Carry a Gun as I am of the Bad Guys. Lot of Hot Heads types and other types that get permits. I was not aware the new CC required any training. Looks like it does, copied this from the web site (TN) provided in a previous reply. Seems one might as well do the
  5. My opinion --- you are CORRECT in thinking that way. I have made considerable effort regarding Laws of Self Defense (primarily info from Andrew Branca, including his book Laws of Self Defense and Bronze Membership / FREE? that gives weekly Podcasts, and CCWSafe podcasts and information). I AM NOT A LAWYER NOR AN EXPERT. I feel there is a need for more regulations (should say Education in the Carry Permit Classes) as it can only help us stay Legal in a Self Defense. Legal Defense is the second battle if you have won the First Battle by defending your self from Death or Bodily Injury. T
  6. Good extensive Review including all the different AMMO brands. I have the Heritage Rough Rider (6.5 inch barrel) and have improved my shooting with it. Took a long time for me to finally decide the sight picture (where to put the front sight in relation to the rear sight). I have been taking it to the range (Family Fun Indoor Range, Sevierville, TN) nearly every time i go and shoot 30 or so rounds thru it. Some FREE Hand, and some with using a rest when trying to check accuracy of the gun. Having read that it is best to have the Barrel at Rest as well as the Hands (Butt of G
  7. Not sure I understand the "Really DUDE? and rest of that comment". It sounds like an inconsiderate reply to me. I have not seen much of that kind of stuff on this site in the past, hope it is not an ongoing thing. Anyway, I will explain further in case there is a misunderstanding about what I was saying. I was simply saying, sometimes one can find shooting ranges on a GOOGLE Map of an area. I have in past by opening a GOOGLE Map to an area, and searching for ranges. I did and it showed some, but would not let me copy and paste the GOOGLE link. So, I suggested to do your own GOOGL
  8. Thought I would update my experiences with the GSG Firefly. I will say I am OK with it at the price of $159.99 including 2 MAGS vs normal 1 MAG on a sale deal at Smky Mtn Gun and AMMO (add Tax and Background) for the Robin Blue Slide model. I like the look (despite Robin Blue Slide ), feel, and features of a Hammer, a Decock, etc.). I mean it's as entertaining as any other gun to mess with. BTW, Dave's Picture Procedure works (part of the reason I updated this was to make sure I could put pictures in the TXT). Also, should point out I have been shooting only Remin
  9. I wrote the steps down and lost the paper I wrote them on. LOL So, just wrote them down again. Going to try a photo into a post on the GSG Firefly Thread I started (or someplace). Dave, thanks again for all your effort.
  10. Laws and Regulations are hard to understand and I don't know details and I am not an expert. I do question Target Shooting on TVA Land (undeveloped)? I think the catch in the statement might be the Bold Faced part. "Hunting and fishing are permitted on undeveloped public lands in accordance with applicable Federal, State, and Local Laws, and regulations". As far as I know as an Example -- Target shooting only allowed in Federal Forests & TWR, areas at Shooting Ranges, not in other areas. Hunting is allowed, but you can't just go in and shoot targets. .
  11. I think that is West of Nashville, TN ???? Harrison is north of Chattanooga, TN
  12. GOOGLE Map Search "Shooting Ranges near Harrison, TN doesn't show much. Can't post the link, but shows a Chattanooga Rifle Club close, Shooters Supply and Indoor Range across the river off Hwy 319, and a WMA Range (Prentice Cooper) in Prentice Cooper State Park (some distance off of Hwy 27).
  13. I would be concerned about TVA lands.
  14. OK on Preview. I should use that as I make many typing errors and have to go back to EDIT (seldom take time to read and proof before I post).
  15. Dave, maybe be good to start a new post regarding IMGUR and How to get pictures into TGO Post or Reply because the final you made is so good, yet hidden way down in this post. Suggest a Subject like "Use IMGUR Account to Post Pictures into TGO Forum"
