  1. I belong to the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network. 360 978 5200 Consider them. It is not an insurance program however, if the shoot is self defense, like all of them, they pay well, plus it is reasonably priced. I have had it for years. Hope I never need to use it. They are out of Seattle area and on west coast time if you call. It is a good program.
  2. Whisper, what riled me was the kid's statement, "Gault was going t o go to hell because he killed men in the execution of his duties as a lawman", was not a truthful statement. Why I included scripture to debunk the statement. God/Christ allowed the apostles to purchase tools for self protection(swords).
  3. I have an older non takedown 40 caliber also. Broke the ejector and sent it back to Ruger. They repaired it for free, even though I was not the original purchaser. Sent it back to me on their dime. Can't beat their customer service, IMO.
  4. I finally got around to watching the movie, on Netflicks, "The Highwaymen" with Kevin Costner playing Texas Ranger Hammer and Woddy Haralson playing Ranger Gault. On another board, several posted that the movie was fairly depictive of Texas Ranger Hammer and the take down of Bonnie and Clyde. At any rate I liked the movie, but had a problem with one of the scenes. In the movie Gault's grandson told him his mother said, "Gault was going to go to hell for killing all those men in his carrier as a Texas Ranger." IMO, some liberal writer had to come up with that line out of total IGNORANCE. The Bible tells, in (Romans 13:1-4) (V 1)Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. V 2 V 3 ________ (V 4) For it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not BEAR THE SWORD for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath upon the one who practices evil. Well with anyone who has two brains cells clicking knows that there is a system set in place, by God, to oppose evil. In our form of government the judicial branch, which includes the Police(the sword of gov), are those who are set in place to oppose evil and defeat it by force if necessary. If they (Police) take a life, FOR the RIGHT reasons, they will not be condemned to hell (those condemned to spiritual death) for opposing evil or carrying out their duty. Stupid statements like that gets me frustrated. Same go for being a soldier and carrying out their duty. Just read about Cornelius in Acts chapter 10. He was a Roman soldier who was converted to Christianity and he was a Soldier. The apostle Peter was sent a message about Cornelius, by God in a dream, and Peter taught him and his household the gospel then baptized them into Christ. Read it for yourself. Same goes for one any person practicing self defense. In Luke chapter 22, Jesus told the apostles, as He was about to leave them to their own devices; after Christ was to be crucified. In (Luke 22:35-36) And He said to them, "When I sent you out without purse and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you? And they said no nothing. V 36, And He said to them, "But now, let him who has a purse take it along, likewise also a bag, and let him who has no sword sell his robe and buy one." V 38 And they said, "Lord look, here are 2 swords." And He said to them, "It is enough." Jesus gave the Apostles tools, and a way to protect themselves, as they traveled the known world, at that time, to spread the gospel. A sword is a defensive or offensive tool. It is capable of punching holes, if one gets close enough to it. A gun reaches out and punches holes, if one is close enough. I hope I never need too, but it is no sin to oppose evil and one will not be put in hell for practicing self defense .
  5. The 3 Taurus revolvers I possess have been flawless. There was some problems with early 617, but that was corrected in later models. The tolerance was too tight and when they heated up the revolver would bind the cylinder rotation. I have never owned a Taurus semi auto so I can't say anything about them. Taurus has had a quality control problem, in the past, and I think that has tarnished their image with shooters. More so than other major brands, however they have had their stresses also as of late. The only new guns I have purchased lately is 2 M P 9C 2.0 pistols and my first one has been good ones(400 rounds through it). I just recently purchased the second M P and haven't fired it yet. Waiting on warmer weather.
  6. I have 3 of these revolvers, 1 SS, 1 blue in 357.38Spl , and another SS 38Spl only. This is my EDC, and has been for 5 years. Diabetic neuropathy forced me back to revolvers. Nerve damage in my hands and wrist. The 38 Spl is a ultra light. I pocket carry and use a Desantsis Nemesis pocket holster that I need to rip out the inside stitching and have my wife re-sow the inside stitching opening up the throat about 1/4". Works well for pocket carry, but I have never found a good leather or IWB holster for the 617. How do you like the 617? I really like mine, and the 7 rounds are not bad. I can get by and not be made out to be carrying if I wear dark colored trousers. They print, a little, in lighter color trousers, but I have never been called on indiscrete carrying. If you find a leather holster, that is adequate, please let me know.
  7. My opinion, the grand jury will send this case to trial. Bad atmosphere out there in john Q public.
  8. The coast flashlights, that I purchased a year ago, still work fine. I went back to Walmart and purchased another Coast and it is slightly larger. We use it in our RV.
  9. We have camped in every TN State Park, that has RV camping in TN, except for 2 around Memphis. Don't have any desire to go to Memphis or that area. Every Park has something unique to that area. TN has a lot to offer out of doors. Get out and enjoy it QuackerSmaker.
  10. I don't make any resolutions, however keep up the good work bersaguy. I quit smoking in 1987 and have not touched one since. Of course I gained 50 pounds, but eventually lost a few. If you manage to quit it will pay dividends later one in your life. That's a good thing.
  11. I have an older model Ruger carbine, however the one I have is in 40 caliber, and is not a takedown model. I purchased the one I have used and the extractor broke. Sent it back to Ruger and they repaired it free. I like the 40 although that caliber has become the ugly duckling caliber. I am sure the 9MM would be as good and a lot of fun to play with. One drawback to the 40 is the ammo is much higher than the 9 MM.
  12. If it is too hot, global warming. Too cold, global warming. No rain, global warming. Too much rain, global warming. El-nineyo(s) global warming. No el ------- global warming, and yadda yadda yadda….. It is all hogwash, IMO. Globe has been warming since the last ice age.
  13. I looked at a new gen 5, at Specialty Arms in Lavergne, and it was priced 489.00 in their Thanksgiving day sale, which is a good sale. Don't know what it would be today. Over 500.00 for sure. That was with no extra goodies other than what came with a new gun in the box.
  14. My grandson has moved to Florida and I am in Mid TN. He just turned 21 and I am giving my gun collection to my children and grandchildren. My question. Do I need to take the gun to Florida, and have it go through a FFL then have a background check, or can I just give it to him to take home with him? He is visiting TN this week. These are guns I have owned for years.
  15. OS, New York's Police used Remington G S for years and may still do. They liked it fine and it worked well when they hit someone with it.
