    Savage 99

    Be prepared with lots of time and money if anyone decides to venture into there. Unless you want to feel totally incomplete the rest of your life... They constantly egg on my Savage Model 24 need. I saw a .22 Hornet over 20ga the other day....Why why why did I look when there is no buying it....
  5. My rough guess is 42..... Someone STOP giving GT access to saw blades...lol
  6. I don't even have one and I would buy it if I was close.
  7. Yeah concealed carry...implies you are carrying it. Not leaving it lying around in a crowded place. First rule parents should teach kids: "Kids if you see a gun don't touch it and get an adult" Failure all around. That kid will rightfully need therapy no matter how mom's conditions ends up.
  8. Dang, too far away. Would be nice to have the extra deck width.
  9. I had reason to dig up changes to the tax once. Thanks to a nice lady at the state library in Nashville here it is: Below is a list of the acts and what changes occurred: 1937, Ch. 84: mentions a “privilege tax” which equals 3% of the retail sales price of the ammunition; no mention of specific amount 1945, Ch. 37: $.03 per box on center fire and shotgun shells; $.01 on rim-fire ammunition 1974, Ch. 481: all money from the ammunition tax goes to the Wildlife Resources Fund; no mention of specific amount of tax 1979, Ch. 179: $.05 on any ammunition box 1982, Ch. 738: amending language; no mention of tax amount 1989, Ch. 486: $.10 on any ammunition box Very surprised no one raised it since '89. I don't mind paying it. And anyone that is buying ammo should not have financial trouble paying $0.10. If they do, they should not be buying ammo with that money.
  10. I know you can 't always avoid ambushes or snipers. One guy with a beat up Mosin Nagant could headshot a guy in full armor with a mini-gun. It is impossible to prepare for every eventuality. Fighting to keep what you have might be a day to day ocvorence then .
  11. And that is why we have guns... discussion brought full circle lol
  12. My biggest concern is 100% of the population left with just the local resources. At least if it was a fast sweeping pandemic the population drops quicky so some resources are left. Unfortunately you need to know where in that 10 mile radius to find more supplies when yours inevitably run out. Producing ethanol takes time but eventually might get us back driving. Or at least running tractors and chainsaws. In the interim I agree bikes and horses (if you can keep people from eating them) would be priceless.
  13. Ahhh... Ellisons hamburger steak dinner. It was one of the few places in the area you could get great food, groceries, bait, and a fishing license. I grew up down there, though a few years after you. I have been gone since 1999. My parents still live in Seymour. I would not move back myself. Those hidden back roads are published in every tourist paper. Rental cabin communities are in the most unlikely backroad places. The traffic to and from them is outrageous. Plus since they ate up a lot of land, acreage is not cheap. If you plan to work any type of small job just to supplement be sure you can deal with service work like sales or the food industry. One of the reasons I left. There is not much there that pays good enough to raise a family. My Dad says the deer on his property are back in a decline after growth in the last decade. He hunts WMAs closer to Middle TN mostly. That is just my $0.02
  14. You would be ok. Rule of thumb is anything before 1980. If the EMP was strong enough to melt wires in an origional 1940-50 car or tractor, then you probably will not be walking around to test them out. I would expect some type of nervous system damage if it was that strong.
  15. Wow, I could just buy a month any time I get a couple guns coming in and basically get the range time free. Wish one was here in TriCities.
  16. One other thing that is dying out that hurts is the phone book. Remember when you grabbed it and opened it to pet stores or such? You had a list of places to call or visit. They also had maps in the front. Heck, I used to use the white pages to build Graduation or Christmas card address lists. Now Google is great, but lose the cell network and internet connections and it all goes black. I keep what passes for a phone book lying around. I figure is all H3ll breaks loose it will be a good guide as to where to look for certain supplies. Resourcefulness and determination will be necessary to survive long term. Indeed we continue to place ourselves in a more and more precarious position that is vulnerable to something like an EMP. A wide spread EMP killing off computers, GPS units, cell phones, and current vehicles would be as good as a death sentence for a large percentage of the population in a pretty short amount of time. Lack of food shipments, clean water, hvac (heat stroke and hypothermia potential), and medical services would be the leading issues. The violence that ensues will quickly become even worse. The longer I do IT, the more nervous I get about the possibility of such an issue. I fear it would be a looong time (if ever) before we got any where close to "normal" again.
  17. Maybe 'We have our flag waving'?
