  1. New to TN

    Welcome aboard and to TN from Cookeville. Sounds like you are “adapting” quite nicely! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Well, I TRY to live by it. I don’t always succeed! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. East German Makarovs

    I understand that! I have committed to myself to not have or keep safe queens. I either just won’t buy it or will sell or trade one if it becomes that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. East German Makarovs

    9mm Mak. I don’t find it to be bad at all in terms of recoil. Seems to me to be easier than 9mm Luger. However shooting a Polish P64 is a bit more exciting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. East German Makarovs

    I can only compare Bulgarian to East German. Function is smoother and tighter on the EGs I have used compared to the Bulgarians and when in unmolested condition the EG finish is nicer. Generally I like the size/weight/balance of the Mak as well as the fixed barrel. And I like the price points on them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. East German Makarovs

    I had read somewhere that these grips were what some were imported with but I cannot recall where I read that. I put some original German grips back on the 1960 after that photo was taken. The thumb rest grip pictured is comfortable though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I haven’t shared anything here in a while so let’s change that! I recently had the opportunity to add these 2 to my collection. And I look forward to finding more as they are really growing on me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Need a break seriously

    It is a tough calling for sure but can also be a rewarding too once the race has been run. My wife and I are also involved in a situation that could develop into one like the one you are facing. I would add a couple things: 1. I happen to work for a national company that provides exactly the type of care you are talking about. I will PM a contact closer to you to speak with. They may not be able to serve Newport but they can answer that and regardless can be a good resource for information on options, programs, etc in East TN. 2. Seek out family caregiver support groups via churches, facilities, etc. You all need the support they can provide you. 3. One funding option that might apply, and that very few know about, is for veterans and surviving spouses, and is called the Aid and Attendance benefit. Like anything with the government it involves a slow application process and it is income and asset based. Worth looking at potentially! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Classifieds Temptation

    You could be like me and be primarily attracted to C&R stuff. Then you would find it a little less tempting...but only a LITTLE!!![emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
