    Public Auction January 26, 2019, 10 am

    Hi! The View Pics link does not take me to pictures, just an auction listing. I tried rooting around with the ID number and such, with no luck. Do you have a link that would take me directly to the pictures?
  2. Does anyone know if the Sevierville Convention Center is posted? I am heading over there today for the RV show. I will find out soon enough, but if I had a "heads up" first, that would be great!

    Birds!

    Budgies are so full of life and often times humor and laughter! They are fun to have around, unless you do not like the chatter. They are much lower maintenance, and a lot less screechy than the sun conure Esko 270 has, lol. Even if the cats are mostly uninterested, never leave them alone within reach of the Budgies. Even being playful, cats saliva can be toxic to budgies and other birds. Since you bought a pair of budgies, they have company and that is a good thing! In brief, if I could recommend anything else, never quickly pull back your finger or create any drama if it looks like the budgie might bite you. The drama will reinforce the biting behavior. Most birds are actually taught to bite by the dramatic pull back of a finger and a loud "ouch". They will happily learn to stand on your finger. Just be very patient. They will quickly learn that your hand in the cage means "food", that is a good thing! Over time, extend a finger and watch their reaction. Slowly, over time, desensitize them to seeing your extended finger. Work it closer to where their chest curves down to their feet until they tolerate your finger being held against them. This could be difficult if one bird is friendly and the other is skittish. The skittish one can unravel what you are doing with the friendly one, if the skittish one gets too upset and enters the drama zone. Years ago, I had a parakeet that was very well hand/shoulder trained. He used to ride around on my shoulder all day. I had a portable radio boom box and I would stand the handle up like a perch, put the parakeet on the handle, and crank up some rock and roll. He would scream, dance, bob, and run back and forth on the handle to the music! He looked forward to a musical dance session every day! Most of the parrot type birds love music, everything from classical to rap. Also read up on clipping their flight feathers, if you are planning on taking them out of their cage. Sometimes they can sneak out on you and if they get out of the house, they will keep happily flying toward the sky. You can only clip the flight feathers at certain times. When they are new feathers, they have blood/veins in them and the bird will bleed to death if you clip them at the wrong time. Birds only have a tiny bit of blood, so just seeing a tiny bit can mean a critical situation. If you are uncertain, just don't do it. And keep a styptic pen as part of your budgie first aid kit.

  7. What he said ^^^. I used to like plastic until I bought my full sized Colt Government 1911 in 9mm. Such a sweet and accurate shooter! I am planning on selling some of my plastic now, to buy the smaller Colt Defender 9mm for carry and BUG competitions.

    Glad to see a new range opening! A bit too far from East Tennessee for me, good luck to you all!

    Nice! Who did the spring and hammer upgrades? Are there any other modifications/enhancements? It sounds like you are the original owner, am I correct?
  10. I have not been to Tac2 (E. Tenn) for a while for Steel Challenge. I checked their website, and it looks like the dates have been reworked for their events. It used to be the Second Sunday of the month following IDPA. There is still a page on their website that says that. HOWEVER, it seems like their updated calendar says Steel Challenge is this Sunday the 25th. I have sent an email and left a phone message. I need to make arrangements several days in advance to go, like today, so I am hoping one of you know the answer to my question. It is about an hour and a half drive for me to go one way. I am not going to take a 3 hour round trip drive without knowing for sure. Thanks for any info you can give!
  11. Did the Wilson package on the Compact include a trigger job/spring?

    Good stuff, Tiffany! Thanks for posting! I wish I could go, but it is too long a drive from East Tennessee. Good luck and let us all know how it goes!

    Greetings from Memphis!

    Welcome! From a female shooter in East Tennessee!
  14. There is another Lady Sure Shots event at Shoot Point Blank range this Saturday. Visit my first post for details. This is a great group for beginners, and even someone with experience can learn new things. It is also a great place to meet other women who like to shoot.
