  1. Never been myself, but you might also want to investigate: http://maurycogunclub.com/
  2. For an indoor range, Top Gun is OK. You might also look at Eagle Eye as an outdoor range as it's a bit closer. If you are going to be shooting often, look into an annual membership as it'll save you a considerable amount. Eagle Eye Shooting Complex 9613 Elk Ridge Rd, Mount Pleasant, TN 38474 931-379-7977 If going to Eagle Eye, I suggest calling ahead and making sure there are no events scheduled before driving down.
  3. A friend of mine just asked this morning if a gun site (https://taurususaguns.com/) was legitimate. It looks like a valid site, but bells start ringing when a firearm dealer doesn't show a physical address or phone number anywhere. What really screamed "Scammer" is they only accept Zelle or Cryptocurrency for payment. Always make sure you have a recourse to recover your money from online purchases.
  4. 2 years ago I had in excess of 30 hummingbirds. This year 4.
  5. I carry a Glock 26 with 15-round mag and an X-grip. Why not carry my Glock 19? It's simple. I shoot the G26 better (point and shoot) than the G19. That's likely because I've fired so many more rounds through the G26 that it's more natural to handle. But I've had other people tell me the same thing; they shoot the G26 better than the G19. I do carry a spare 17-round mag on me at all times... also with an X-grip added. The benefit of being able to "pickup" any double stack Glock 9mm mag is nice in thought, but I seriously doubt I'd ever need it. While it may be trivial, I'd bet the shorter slide of the G26 is marginally faster on the draw. I use leather OWB holsters wet molded to fit each individual firearm. I'm a firm believer in as long as it's reliable and gets the job done, carry whatever you shoot best. As a side note, at longer ranges (well beyond point and shoot ranges) I do better with the IWI Masada (and it's green dot Holosun) than the G26 or G19. That's even after putting a Leupold DeltaPoint Micro red dot on the G26.
  6. The binary triggers are fun, but I'm not impressed with the drum mags. You might want to take a look at the HC3R mags: https://hcmags.com/products The mags are capable of 25 rounds. The stripper clips only hold 20. The last 5 you have to load by hand. Still, swapping in 20 rounds is pretty quick with practice and you can leave the stripper clips loaded without worrying about the mag spring.
  7. Ammo should be put in the "Gear Classifieds" section of the forum.
  8. The SUB-CQB is hard to find... even online. Only 2 vendors showed up in my brief search as having them "in-stock". Please note that I've not bought anything from either vendor, so this is not a recommendation of them: https://store.thegundock.com/product/keltec-sub-cqb-9mm-for-glk19-blk https://whiskeyoutpostmn.com/product/keltec-sub-cqb-9mm-for-glk19-blk I'd check with my preferred local gun shop to see if they can order you one. The local dealer here charges a premium for Class 3 FFL transfers.

    Taurus G3C

    The sights on the G3C are Glock pattern so you have several options. The slide is different and now has front serrations and touch longer. Overall the G3C is slightly bigger and minutely heavier: https://www.handgunhero.com/compare/taurus-g2c-vs-taurus-g3c
  10. That link didn't work for me. But this one does: https://tsprof.us/
  11. Yeah, that's Frank's dog "Pancho". He sounds like an old steam locomotive... huffing and puffing.
  12. I'm a regular there as it's only a couple of miles from home. If you can, show up on Saturday for an early lunch as Saturdays are the only day they have peach cobbler. I suggested "early" as they often sell out of peach cobbler. For a first visit, I'd suggest anything (sandwich or plate) with sliced brisket. When looking the menu, if you want to carry (just) leftovers home, the 2 or 3 meat plates are a good option. Also be sure to try the southwest potatoes. As an aside, Frank not only owns Shaffer's Meats, but also the local gun range Eagle Eye.
  13. Apparently the buyer had a screw loose.
  14. I had similar thoughts to Grayfox. Passing judgement on a firearm/ammo until you've had a chance to test isn't beneficial.
  15. The biggest concern for a home user is that companies on the Internet are often lax in updating/patching their software. So it's very likely that some end-user private data may be exposed. My advice would be to avoid using a debit card online and not use echeck/bank draft either. As much as I detest credit cards, they usually have much better protection in case of fraud. Use a credit card if you must make online purchases.
  16. If you are going to vacuum seal a large quantity of items, you may run into where the vacuum sealer begins to overheat. This is especially true where you are sealing both ends of the bag from a roll and/or double-sealing to insure the seal doesn't leak. I bought one of these to do the additional seals on my vacuum bags: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0077TDLNA/ It cut out the wait time (from an overheating vacuum sealer) when processing a large amount of meat.
  17. Apache is the most used web server (which runs web sites) in the world. Many of those use Log4j to log error messages. As an end user, you don't have control over what's in the cloud and have to trust the vendors to patch the web server. You can also find web servers in internet connected appliances like routers and TVs. So it's probably a good idea to update them. On the PC side of things, unless you are a developer, you normally won't have Log4j running on a computer.
  18. I really like my S&W Victory. Of course I have made a "few" changes to it: Tandom Kross Hive grip Tandom Kross match trigger Tandom Kross Halo charging handle Volquartsen rail Vortex Venom Red dot Volquartsen I-Fluted stainless steel barrel with compensator Volquartsen Edge extractor
  19. Something else you might want to consider is the Leupold DeltaPoint Micro. It does not require the slide to be milled as it replaces the rear sight. In addition to being a red dot, it also functions as a rear sight so you do still have a manual backup. One of the things I really like is that it works with my existing pancake holsters with no modifications.
  20. I believe the Rossi is the same as the Mossberg 702 Plinkster and can use the same mags... including the 25-round mag. The only difference between the 2 rifles is the stock. Check the follower. Some mags came out of the factory with small burrs on them.
  21. Members in east TN can run by Smokey Mountain Knife Works and get CCI SV for $3.69 for a box of 50: https://www.smkw.com/cci-22lr-std-velocity-50pack-box That's 7.38 cents per round (before taxes).
  22. Rob, Here's the first review I read on the Sidekick: https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/gun-review-diamondback-sidekick-22-revolver/
  23. Brownells has the Ruger Wrangler on sale for $164 (using the code "TAG"): https://www.brownells.com/firearms/handguns/revolver/wrangler-22lr-4-62--prod128021.aspx
  24. MSRP on a Single Six (convertible) is $759 and the MSRP on the Ruger Wrangler is $269.
