  1. I will keep that in mind. I have a buddy that gave me a name, but I have not tried to check out his work yet. Nice to have options because some guys get really backed up.
  2. From my experience if you have this long of an issue going on, then it needs to be "escalated". Call back in, identify the issue and order number very calm and polite. Tell the operator that this has been going on forever and you would like to "escalate to their supervisor." In most call centers these are magic words that can't be denied. I should know, I have worked in several. If the supervisor tells you they can't help, the ask them the same thing. At some point, you might have to wait on a call back, but there is someone that can help you. If they say there is no one else to talk to, ask to talk to ANTHONY ACITELLI - PRESIDENT AND CEO. You won't get to but you might get his secretary team to call you back. Some companies have the magic word rule on "talk to the President" too. There is no way that they have no stock (of stocks lol) and there is no reason for them to wait to ship them to be "fair." They are just shoveling crap. If this fails, write a letter that details everything. Mail it with tracking ($3-$4) and fax it to the fax number. Make it attention to ANTHONY ACITELLI - PRESIDENT AND CEO of Taurus Other names to drop are Vincent Abrams Senior Marketing Manager Carlos Vazquez-Pausa Director of National Sales Customer Care Call Center Call Toll Free: (800) 948-8029 Monday thru Friday - 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM (EST) Phone: (305) 474-0401 Fax: (305) 623-7506 Mailing Address: 16175 NW 49 Avenue Miami Lakes, FL 33014 If you do Facebook (I don't) then write a review on their page. Almost at the top of the reviews I saw one for what sounded like the same issue. Make enough noise (politely but strongly) and someone high enough up will decide to fix it so you will stop costing them marketing dollars.
  3. That is both disturbing and encouraging...
  4. Yeah I am already liking the vibe here better than several other places I have tried.
  5. Thanks, That had been the way I was leaning. Just checking because I mentioned it to someone outside of here about doing a trade and they acted like I had a second head. I just wish I had bought some guns back when I had more cash and you could get things like Enfields for $75. Hindsight
  6. Ok. I did not know how people were about shipping here. Sounds like a lot of good miles and memories. Cars wise I am a little short on ability. I just never got dug in under the hood. Dad always wanted me to focus on school. He just wanted something better for me. So I will have to enlist some labor. That makes the redo a lot more costly. Of course I do not want to screw it up. Except for the bench seat and radio, i think I have all the original parts. Still an inline 6 with 3 on the tree.
  7. Peer pressure... I blame per pressure.....
  8. Maybe that is it. My travel is limited by schedule, so that makes a meet hard. When I am down that way work or family is involved and both preclude picking up a gun. Did you buy them shipped, or drive to get them? My budget is so thin that when I do get a a new gun, it is going no where but to the range. Always was the same in my family growing up, guns came in but they never left. Nice one. Yeah it always seems like something or other takes the time or money away. I grew up in the '56, so I want my son to get to ride in it too. Hopefully he is not old enough to drive it before he does. lol
  9. I am trying to expand my firearms collection. I grew up shooting, but was out of it for years due to family, money, schedule, etc. So I restarted small and the budget is thin. It is going slow. Not many people I deal with on a daily basis trade guns. Most of them have a much more liquid budget and just buy them. Then they rarely ever get rid of one. So anyone got any tips on trading other things for guns? Gun parts, optics, electronics, gift cards.. I have built up some stuff that I am not currently using and it might be nicer to trade than sell. The bills always get paid, but still extra cash just seems to disappear into the household spending before I use it. I see people posting stuff like this sometimes on places like Armslist (don't really like that place) but it is hard to know if anyone ever gets with them. Plus a lot of FT ads are looking for specific gun to gun trades. I just wanted to throw it out there for comment. In no way is this an ad. I just wanted to see if I should even bother before I spent the money on a premium membership so that I can post and respond to ads here. Plus I don't want to offend anyone here if everyone thinks that is crap. So what is the etiquette and your guys opinion on it? Thanks
  10. Thanks. Yeah like I said to Raoul, when I first started watching the classifieds, I would have sworn most of the people were from Nashville. Seems like their are several of us from the Tricities area hanging around here. Looks like you might be a keyboard jockey like me. What model truck is that in the background of your profile page? I have a 1956 Chevy Stepside that I have been trying to get started on fixing up.
  11. I don't disagree with a single thing you are saying. I just think the first step is to stay aware and take actions that minimize the necessity. I have had more than one near miss with mob violence over the years. In those instances, my gun was not an option due to location (like foreign soil as a civilian). I avoided them by being aware and making an exit away from the issue before it came to a head. Anyway, everyone's opinion is their own. It comes down to you feeling like you are armed appropriately for the worst case scenario you might face. That is based within the budget you can afford. Goes back to "Any gun is better than no gun, but some guns are better than others" Biggest question is --- SoldMyHat, did you decide and buy anything?
  12. Funny how wives are that way. Mine has enough craft supplies to fill a Hobby Lobby, but if I bring home some scrap lumber from work to use later, I am hoarding. When she needs something fixed that my "junk" pile has a piece for she never seems to mind then. Plus I can't remember the last time I needed to buy bolts, screws, or nails. Good thing she never looks at my ammo stock. lol
  13. I like ARs and will get one when budget allows it, but I also was taught by my grandfather that it doesn't matter how many shots you have if you make the first one count. I figure since he survived World War II and being a police officer, that is opinion counts for a little bit. And if the turds really hit the blades, I'm hoofing it home where I've got a lot more set up. On a normal day, I don't have a 10 man death squad after me. I tend to avoid places and people that make that happen. The OP wanted an all around gun to keep in the truck. We can all debate it for a long time, but only he can decide what works well enough for him within the budget he has. Throwing out budgets and laws, he might just decide to carry a minigun in his truck. Works for gunfights, herds of deer, rabid trucks, and cutting down trees. See, all around gun. lol

    That is why I refuse to allow anything more than an iPhone to even use my network. Apple is just too proud of being Apple. They have to keep coming up with unnecessary things to be Apple exclusive. Basically USB is a universal port, why go designing a proprietary one?
  15. Little late to the party, but just wanted to point out that he mentioned putting a lockbox under his seat for the gun to live in. My 2 30-30 lever actions make great all around guns. If I need more than the 6 rounds they hold in the tube before I can top it off between shots, then I am already in bad trouble.
  16. I think everyone I knew growing up hunted whitetail deer with a 30-06... except Dad... he uses a .444 Marlin.. lol I figured I am close enough with a 30/30. Great looking gun use it well and often.
  17. Congrats on taking a tough issue and making a simple solution. I bet most of us have enough stuff lying around to make one like that, just haven't thought of it..... or am I the only junk hound here.
  18. Do they not have bigger things to worry about than cars for sale in yards? I have never seen it ruin a neighborhood. I can understand if the yard looks like a picked over junk yard. In my eyes, I pay for my property and short of real criminal activity, I should be able to do as I wish
  19. Yeah nothing like advertising "come and steal my stuff". I agree usually those cars are the type that only the stickers are holding it together. I try to keep all my stuff low key even down to my gun carry cases and range bag. Showing off just brings bad attention.
  20. If I had it to do over again, I would have probably just bought an RV...... Of course I would be living in it alone after she divorced me. Not sure if that is bad or good. lol

    Ruger LCPii

    Looks like Indian Springs Armory in Kingsport, TN has one for $275 starting tomorrow if you happened to be up this way. I have a buddy that shops there and likes them. I have not bought from them though. That is more from being cash poor than not wanting to. lol Here is a link to the sales flyer on their site http://www.indianspringsarmory.com/2016-christmas-open-house.html
  22. Glad to meet you Raoul. I work in Blountville, ,so I am in Bristol a bunch. I started looking on here in the classifieds section. That page made me think everyone is in Nashville on here. lol Many people on here that you know from the area?
