  1. I have a LNIB Kahr MK40 I'd trade for that. But if interested, it would have to be in Murfreesboro. Thanks
  2. I’m actually less than a mile from it, but I’m too lazy to go look. I might go tomorrow.
  3. Has anyone been? Is it packed? Is there parking in their lot? Last time I went there was a huge line out the door, nutz to butts inside, and you had to park out in the surrounding neighborhoods.
  4. Well… I’m kinda leaning towards Black Hills leather. But not really decided yet.
  5. Thanks for that link. I haven’t left, I’m still here. Just had to slow my roll.
  6. You guys in East Tennessee have all the good gun stuff. But hey, we have guitars and whiskey!
  7. Thanks Leroy. I’ve looked at his rigs before. I want a low ride like a “Drop Loop” or I guess sometimes called a Buscadero? It appears he doesn’t do those since he has a link on his website to someone that does, and appears to be in Corinth MS, actually closer to me than he is.
  8. Thanks, Do you think the Black Hills is better quality than the Triple K? The Triple K #40 & 41 I'm looking at is $533 at Americasgunstore.com, (if they have it) and over $660 on the Triple K website. https://www.americasgunstore.com/products-page/single-rig/triple-k-40-41-texan-lined-holster-and-buscadero-lined-drop-belt-for-gun-group-15-guns-colt-saa-ruger-vaquero-etc-5-5/?nb=1 The only drop belt holster combination I see at Black Hills is The Hunter. Its $400. https://www.blackhillsleather.com/shop/western-rigs-leather/western-rigs/bh73-the-hunter/ (Black, Basketweave Tooling, New Model Blackhawk Convertible 0463, 5.5” .45 Colt, Size 44” on both options)
  9. Thanks guys, it looks like El Paso Saddlery and Triple K are the only options that have reasonable pricing and delivery times for what I want. (El Paso could take 4 months. I’m spoiled with same day or 2 day shipping most everywhere. But I understand they don’t make a lot of these anymore ) Seeing holster quality on the internet is impossible. I’m still hoping to find someone local that makes holsters. But no luck yet.
  10. I’m looking for a Western holster rig. It’s tough to tell the quality from internet pictures. If you have one you are happy with, or know of any Tennessee holsters makers that make those kind of rigs, please let me know. Thanks
  11. TICS is broke. As you have apparently seen on here; this happens a lot. Short of a class action lawsuit I don’t see it being fixed. But of course with a lawsuit, if they can show ANYTHING, correct or not; they probably wouldn’t be held liable for anything. I have never heard of a “Do not sell list” with FFL’s?? That is disturbing. If someone had that happen in my area I would appreciate them naming the business so I could make sure not to use them.
  12. I was being funny. Hence the upside down smiley. I apologize.
  13. Revolvers are having, or needing, a resurgence?? I didn’t get the notification. Altamont Grips is going strong. But we have lost the original S&W factory grips, and Ahrends Grips. I don’t know how any self respecting gun owner could even consider Kydex for a holster; but it certainly is an option. There are plenty of leather options available from cheap junk to quality holsters. But of course leather holsters cost more than plastic ones. Since CRB, I’ve only added one gun. It’s a S&W model 610. I don’t foresee adding anything else soon as the prices are crazy. Almost all my carry guns are Semi-autos. But I certainly love my revolvers, and a revolver holds the #1 place in my home defense.
  14. I thought the same thing. But with yesterdays events; no need to wait. So much for gun prices possibly dropping back to reality or ammo being available. I would speculate that with current events, manufacturers may be able to justify the capital expenditures they couldn’t justify before. Americans on both sides and from all walks of life will be arming themselves.
  15. And you probably won’t for some time. No need to stock shelves; its being sold online without the need, and they don’t have to look the customer in the eye.
  16. Yeah, it looks like 3 or 4 guys are in a bidding war. Which I don’t understand either, why they keep bumping the bid up; but whatever. But what do I know? I stuck my toe in the GB water last week. I put a couple of small items up just trying to get some positive reviews. Listed them with a starting bid under half of what everyone else was selling them for; no joy, they didn’t sell.
  17. Ut oh.... you guys are in trouble now!!
  18. Why does the text below your video say "Dont do this!!!"
  19. Welcome to the forum. And thank you for making that website. My Uncle was killed in the pacific in the crash of his B-17 in 1943. My mother had only the information that she was told as a child about what happened to her brother. A year or so ago I did a Google search on his name and found some info. It ultimately led me to a site that identified his plane, all the crew members and what happened. When I told my Mom about the information I had found, she said it wasn’t correct because “She was told” (back in the day). I explained to her that some of the information was written by one of the two crew members that survived the crash. She wanted me to “print that website” . So now I’m in the process of trying to remotely teach her how to use that website to get info. Sites like yours fill in the blanks for a lot of people, and give information to the young folks that want to know what really happened. Thank you.
  20. You have no duty to retreat. That is something different than thinking Castle Doctrine creates a free fire zone. If you walked in and found a burglar in your home, your Nest camera is running, or he is live streaming as some criminals do, and it records him throwing his hands in the air, surrendering, and telling you he is unarmed, don’t shoot. You kill him. You will enter the courtroom with the presumptions given you under Castle Doctrine. The prosecutor will then blow those presumptions out of the water. That’s just my opinion though. I guess its possible the state would allow you to execute a surrendering burglar. But since they won’t let you kill a fleeing burglar; I doubt it. But those are decisions everyone must make on their own. My own personal belief is that when a person is committing a forcible felony they should have no rights. And should be subject to being shot or killed by the victims or bystanders. Unfortunately most folks don’t agree. Especially when the offender is a friend, family member, or a child. Our founding Fathers were a bunch of tough old guys that are probably rolling over in their graves when they see their words being twisted to hold the rights of a criminal above those of the victims.
  21. Two shots ain't very "tacticool"
  22. We would all like to have a blueprint of what the law requires in any given situation to determine if we can legally use deadly force. We don’t have that. The closest we have is this… Deadly force is justified if a reasonable person believes deadly force is required to prevent death or great bodily harm.”. There are many variations on that wording. We have these discussions/arguments/bickering all the time here. And that’s a good thing. People need to understand all the ins and outs. Two of the most misunderstood terms I see in these discussions is usually “Castle Doctrine” and “Duty to Retreat”. The Castle Doctrine does not create a free fire zone; you can still be charged. And Tennessee doesn’t need to tell you that you don’t have a duty to retreat because as best I can tell; they never had had that as a requirement. Those laws are generally in states that at one time had a duty to retreat. “Reasonable Person” is a Judge or jury, if you go to trial. They will decide if what you did was “reasonable”. What you did will be judged by strangers that will make decisions that could alter your life and the lives of your family. The responding Officers, The investigators, The DA, and ultimately a Judge or Jury, that have hours or even months to decide what you had to decide in seconds will determine your fate. Every case is different. Times are changing. In the past when a criminal got killed committing a violent act; no one really cared. Nowadays if it’s a cop doing the killing; the left wants them charged even when they were clearly in danger. And we have seen that happen when it shouldn’t have. They will certainly apply that same standard to armed citizens killing criminals. “It’s better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6” is a stupid statement. It’s better to not be charged, period. If you are charged with murder you will get exactly the amount of justice you can afford. That would financially destroy most of us.
