    Nashville Homeless

    Sorry, I didn’t mean I discourage you in general. I was thinking more from the side of going directly into the camps. There is no shortage of homeless and temporary homeless that are working hard to get on their feet, but physical and mental illness, rediculous cost of living here now and lack of resources are always working against them. I’d echo what everyone else has said about hooking up with the Mission, Room at the Inn, ect...

    Nashville Homeless

    Many of the homeless are better outfitted than REI. I’d go with what others have suggested and hook up with the Mission or Room at the Inn. These folks can always use help in money supplies and volunteers. I’d caution against going into the camps alone or otherwise. The majority of these folks are super nice and good people, but there are others that are downright dangerous. Here is an example of one camp of many around Nashville. This one is behind the the Lowe’s at Charlotte Pike and River Rd.
  3. My wife does as well. Better bring your CDs. If you ever plan, or think there is even the slightest possibility of needing to commute to Nashville, don’t move anywhere off I24 south east of Nashville. Im off I40 30 miles east from the center of Nashville, where I work, and my commute is 50-60mins. People who commute on I24 laugh at me like I’m a child when I complain about my commute.
  4. I’ve been a visitor at Strategic Edge and it was a fantastic facility with great people. I’d join if I was closer. Stones River is a nice facility, but a real pain, though very safe DUE TO being a real pain. OK Corral or something outside Murfreesboro? Never been, but heard about it.

    Wilson County Fair

    Next year (2018) is anybody's guess, but this article from last year (2016) says HCP is good to go per Lebanon PD: http://wilsonpost.com/lpd-to-increase-officers-at-wc-fair-cms-88827 "There are no plans to change procedures for entrance to the fair, and Hardy said they have not specifically banned firearms at the fair." "We follow Tennessee state law on firearms, meaning if you are licensed and permitted to carry a firearm and have that documentation with you, you are allowed to bring your firearm," he said."

    Marlin Ballard #2 Info?

    Ah, a glutton for more crappy cell phone pictures...excellent! Hadn't gotten around to it yet. S&W bottom break, short cylinder (.22 short?). On barrel rib: Smith and Wesson Springfield Mass Pat Apr.3.55 July 5.59.Dec.1880 (or 60?) Serial on butt 127XXX No other visible markings. Looking at Wiki maybe a Model 1 Third Issue?

    Marlin Ballard #2 Info?

    Thanks for the updates! I've been very fortunate to receive several quality functioning firearms from mine and my wife's family though most are rough finish wise. im going to try to work up the gumption this weekend to disassemble it a little to oil and explore more. Maybe try to source some of that Short Colt.

    Much appreciated!

    Marlin Ballard #2 Info?

    That does look just like it with the same receiver stamping (dates were much clearer on that one), but as you pointed out no double triggers on mine.

    Marlin Ballard #2 Info?

    I can only see the back of the block since the front is covering the chamber and when levered it falls into the receiver, but from the back it appears to be in the center?

    Marlin Ballard #2 Info?

    No model number that I can find. Receiver stamped: Marlin Firearms Co New Haven CT USA Patented February ? 1876 Ballard's Patent Nov 5 1881 It is a falling / rolling block. Not sure on rimfire or center. Here is the chamber and hammer (sorry for all the crappy phone pictures). Thanks!
  12. I have inherited what, in my limited knowledge, I think is a Marlin Ballard #2. Does anyone know anything about these? Serial number is 36XXX, so late 1880s-1890s? It's stamped 32 Long on the barrel. The barrel is bright with no pitting and nice rifling. The finish is mostly surface rust so I've wiped it down in oil. Is it common to reload for these? I'm also curious about value due to one place telling me $800 and another told me I wasted a gallon of gas picking it up (not possible, I love family guns). Thanks for any info, Jarrad
