  1. Just orderd a Rami from them, can't wait to get it and go to range.
  2. Can anyone recommend a contractor, buying property in South Knox and need a builder. Want a modest rancher with walk out basement not looking for a mcmansion. Thanks
  3. Just got some Tripp Cobra mags, they have a molded in metal piece as part of the follower should lock the slide back without wearing out. So far reliable not a lot of rounds through them yet. Well made
  4. How about black green linen micarta, looks real sharp (pun intended)
  5. Use fiebling's all the time, good die does not bleed out. Wear gloves when dying keep from dying hands. Just make sure the leather is clean (no glue or grease) or it will come out splotchy.
  6. Try Admiral Steel good price and selection. For a 3" x 72" piece the shipping is reasonable and its enough for a bunch of knives. Jersey Baron is good also, met him several times at the New York Knife Show which is held in New Jersey now since New York City started arresting people leaving the show with knives several years ago, got to love that.
  7. Have stopped in that Weigles last time we were in Tennessee got gas coffee and snacks for the trip home (coffee was good) Will try TN forestry, thanks to all for the replys
  8. Looking at a property in Strawberry Plains area, at a minimum would need drive way (several hundred feet) and several acres cleared. Can anyone recommend a excavator/ lumber company for this? THE MOVE IS ON THE HORIZON!!
  9. Have a Valor and a Guardian, great looking guns in an understated way. Both are real good shooters too. How many rounds through the ECO?
  10. We've considered renting first also, like you say get a better feel for the area, have to see how it all works out.
  11. Guess I'll have a lot of places to hunt, was wondering about that. Yeah we're looking on Zillow and other sites for homes, just seems like it would be easier to have a representative looking for us also, coming from 800 miles away they can help set some viewings up. I've also bought and sold a couple of homes myself, not that big a deal. The adventure begins.
  12. Wipe off my shoes, I usually stop in Bristol and take a shower to get the liberal stench off me!
  13. Definitely different in Tennessee but better, like it should be people are friendly and nice. We stopped in a fast food place couple of years ago (Mcdonalds) and walked up to the counter to place our order, the girl said they would bring it over to us when it was ready! took a minute and she apologized for taking so long! when we finished eating a kid came over and cleared our table for us WTF. Workers doing more than their jobs unheard of now days. I like Tennessee! And you can carry a gun. Coming down in August give you a shout.
  14. We have been down to Knoxville area bunch of times, and the last few times just touring all the different towns as best we could trying to get a feel for the area. Time to dive in I guess, right now thinking about Powell ,Maryville, Oakridge area and up towards Norris. Yes they all seemed a little different, established, up and coming and more rural. Make the best choice possible its always a bit of a roll of the dice. Was thinking if we find a place that calls out to us will put on nice shirt and visit new neighbors, say hello before we buy. Oh yes we are from downstate NY, Long Island area, really starting to hate it down here. Just to much BS.
