  1. Saw a man yesterday on the news, said it was due to the millions of new gun owners that teens are shooting each other. Of course they are counting stats from up to age 19 and including them in the reported stats as teens. Take out bad drug dealing and the amount reported would be a lot less. Derf, are you kidding, they are turning out major criminal felons, by the bus loads, from TN Prisons, and in other states prisons. Also they are not prosecuting very many crimes at present, and for sure, since Coved arrived on the scene. There is no fear by criminals because of the none punishment atmosphere.
  2. I need to get 40 rolls of hay cut, baled, and in the barn by the 1st of October. We will be traveling to Pigeon Forge and my daughter needs the remainder of her winter time hay for her horses. She has 11 to feed this winter. Already have 30 rolls in the barn. Looking forward to a few days of no rain. Someone else is going to cut and bale the hay, but I will need to haul it from Lascassas, where it will be bailed, to Eagleville TN where her farm is located. I have a 24' gooseneck trailer and can haul 15 bales a trip. Come on dry weather.
  3. (1)Taurus 357Mag/38 Spl SS 7 shot 2" brl revolver stocked with 357 Mag Cor Bon DPX, since Cor Bon manufactured that ammo, for the last 12 years. (2) Have delved into MP 9 MMC 2.0 for the last 5 years and (3) a lastly purchased MP 9MM EZ IWB for the past 1 years. Only have 200 rounds through this one and would like a few more. So far no failures with any of these, and Comfortable with all of them. Mostly practicing with a 22 Lr S W mdl 317 revolver, and Sig Mosquito semi auto in 22 LR, because of ammo crunch. Preserving my stash of larger caliber ammo. Who knows when this the ammo shortage will end. Have proof tested all of them, and they are reliable, fit my hand, have substantial power, and I have confidence in them, but have concerns because of my failing abilities as I get older. This ammo shortage is not helping my confidence either because of lack of practice with bigger handgun calibers. Only shooting them a couple times per year. The 22LR practice keeps trigger finger in shape though. Trigger press is serious, IMO.
  4. Not a chance I will open carry. I want to have surprise on my side.
  5. Had very little pain so far.
  6. Got the cath out Monday and doing well. Not a lot of pain at all. Cath was a real bother. Now hoping for good results. Dr said we will know in a month. Got some residual swelling but should go away in 2 to 3 weeks and things will be back to as normal as possible. So far, I would recommend the Resume procedure and for sure if good results happen.
  7. Going to get my Deer Rifle out and sighted in for deer season. May take a poke at one this year. If not, will enjoy sighting in the rifle.

    Ruger LCP-Max

    Colt Pocketlite for me when I carried a 380. Worked fine for years. Edited to add; never felt totally comfortable armed with the 380.
  9. Granddaughter got the shot but grandson refused. Get the shots! It ain't going away and the shots are your only defense against it. Most who get Coved, and are vaccinated, are NOT dying.
  10. Our 2 children got their first shots this afternoon. Now should have 70% immunity. Need other shot, after one month, for possible 90 to 95% immunity. Most of the people who are passing away have not been vaccinated. My other 2 daughters have been fully vaccinated, including my wife and I. Get the shots! We are working on our twin 17 Y O s, and hope they get it. Our Rutherford County schools are rotten with coved right now. Their mother is trying to get them Phyzer now. Other two vaccines are not approved for under 18.
  11. Nothing wrong with a 40 and the recoil is a bit heavier/snappier, but no problem to control.
  12. I am truly thankful my last 2 daughters have decided to get their families Vaccinated for Coved. We have been pleading with them. My wife just lost a great nephew and his dad is on a ventilator now. Both were not vaccinated, and one has paid a great price because of it. We are praying for the nephew and things are not looking good at present. He has been on the ventilator for 2 weeks tomorrow. I just hope my daughters, and their families have time to get this accomplished and get fully vaccinated. I am going to try and get a booster in October.
  13. My experience with trading, they will allow you half what your gun is worth on trade-in. I have always had better luck selling myself.
  14. Not a lot of pain this morning. Got a cath and feel like I need to urinate constantly. Other than dealing with the bag doing great. Expecting a more pain after the cath comes out on Monday, so I have been told.
  15. Wife just lost her great nephew (41 Y O) to Coved this morning in Lebanon TN. His dad, in Murfreesboro St Thomas Ruth, was put on a ventilator this weekend and getting worse. His wife, and Charlie's mother had the shots. GET THE SHOTS. Best chance to survive coved, IMO.
  16. Had the procedure this afternoon. So far so good. Took about an hour with the DR in the his office. Got there at 3:30, home by 5:30. Not a lot of pain. Came home with a cath and bag on my leg and need to keep it until Monday then go back to have it removed. Said may have swelling and blood in urin, but not to be overly concerned unless excessive. So far, not a bad experience.
  17. Not a pleasant subject BUT, having a procedure done on my prostate this afternoon. Called "Rezum" and is supposed to relieve the pressure on my bladder (going often) and the restricted flow. Not looking forward to having it, but best of the 2 options I was offered. Didn't want the "Roto Rooter" process. You young whipper snappers enjoy your youth, but I will let you old guys know how it goes.
  18. Sorry he died with Coved, Seldom listened to him. My advice, GET THE SHOTS. I did. Edited to add; My wife has a nephew and great nephew, his son) with coved and one is on a ventilator and the other in intensive care 3 weeks now. Both said they wished they had gotten the shots. Sadly, too late now.
  19. Listened to a podcast on "Buckeye Firearms Newsletter" and they said the reason for limited ammo is in 2020 there were 8 and 1/2 million new gun owners that purchased their first gun and just to allow one 50 round box of ammo per new purchaser, it took all the extra ammo in stock to supply them let alone us who have been purchasing all along. The prices asked today is because of supply and demand. Supply has increased, a little, but ammo is still at a premium in price and slowly beginning to come down. Said it may be 18 more months before supply catches up with demand. My small stash is sufficient, but I have slowed my consumption in order to conserve what little I have.
  20. Pardon my ignorance, but does anyone know what Di Cut H P ammo is? S-G ammo advertises it for sale and it is advertised 50 round box-9MM Luger + P 124 Gr Di-Cut Jacketed Hollow Point Black Dot Ammo, by IMI of Israel. Anyone have any info on this ammo? It is half the cost of premium S D ammo.
  21. I am not shooting as much all the while trying to conserve my small stash. Didn't get caught this time and do have ammo on hand this time. Besides it is to hot today to get out and shoot outside. Just looked at the thermometer and it is 99 in the shade. Don't quit on me now AC.
  22. I have taken 100's of squirrels with a 410.Had a man that once purchased every one I brought to him. He kept me in money for 3 years killing rabbits, squirrels, and quail. I used Remington 3" # 6 on all, but 7 1/2 on quail. Out to 35 yards, always worked. Gave the 410 to my grandson last fall. He paid me .50 and gave me a replacement shell for every animal I brought him. Hunted rabbits with the 410 not too long ago. # 6 Remington 3". Have killed with 2 1/2" but not as good.
  23. We went to the BPS at Springfield Mo. last week. They have opened the Wonders of Outdoor Life Museum there this past fall. This store is their Nat Headquarters and is the Biggest I have been in. The Museum is great. Just for instance they have replicas of every Buck Deer that is in the record books with the info on each one. The Bone Room is big. It is worth the trip to go see it. It is first rate and the aquariums are heugh, both fresh and salt water. A multi floor experience. Spent 4 hrs there and was pressed for time. At 40.00 for seniors I thought I would be disappointed, but was not in the least.
  24. Don't know why, but the Donner Pass thing really sticks in my mind, I guess, because of what "allegedly" took place there. Yes, yes, yes, this was a great trip, a trip of a lifetime for us. YMMV
