  1. Got there about 9:30 lot full but plenty of walking room inside. Lots of guns being walked in long guns and handguns,most good price. Guns on tables were only 30 percent over retail instead of usual 50 percent,because of gun prices now. Good price on ammo from the large Dickson dealer,even twenty two's. Cool air which I think is new for there 80-100/ tables. Great America shows or what ever they go buy. i enjoy the small shows better than the Lebanon ones which I dislike. Sunday 9-4?
  2. Travel Through Illinois

    As per law you are to unload gun and case before exiting auto ,if taking gun out of auto. FYI in Speed Zones set cruise for and watch as it drops 55 to45 fine can be $900 and up. They have a fleet of White Vans that sit in speed zones only with a periscope that is photo radar and you will get a ticket with your car and tag in mail in a few days. I have hear a few horror stories on this. On open road ISP may only allow eight over on out of State.
  3. The Remington-Federal Low Recoil (Police Loads) that you can now buy anywhere have almost no felt recoil, same with their slugs. Tested some and 00 Buck will go through 1 gal water jug then halfway into a very old thick phonebook.
  4. Travel Through Illinois

    I leave a copy of law in my car as i go through IL. ,it might save you a lot of time as an "uninformed officer" puts you in cuffs as he checks it out.
  5. Are you completely happy with your pistol choice?

    Your saying that people buy other makes of guns now that Glocks are on the market??
  6. Glock M Series 17/19 FYI

    Posting some info on New Glock Gen5 after talking to a Glock Factory Rep Today,not trying to turn this into a I hate/Love Glock thread. Was told the new features will include a match grade bbl&trigger and longer recoil spring to cut down recover time.They will also have flared magwell and no finger groves. He said they are going to let FBI and Indy IN get the bugs out before sale to public,said some Indy PD are able to hit steel plates at 100 yds every shot. Kidded him that Glock equipped most every PD in Nation with .40 and now will have them going to 9mm ** Marketing Genius** Price is to be same as Gen4 And Glock has lawsuit on Army Trials on Sig as they did not have to go through testing. I may get a 19 and have always liked Sig 229 and Beretta 92FS
  7. Just drove over the Dam and seen shore lined with fishermen on East Side. They are letting water out and Stones is full over steps instead of knee deep trickle. Was there about fifteen minutes and seen quite a few pulled in Hybrids 5to 12 lbs Stripers 4-5 lbs and one guy pulled in his limit of two Paddlefish and left.
  8. For clubs to join CMP lists many. Glock GSSF is one and you can shoot in their matches. I joined one in GA for $15 dollars ,do not even know where it was. Net search will help.
  9. For the most part looks correct. Finish may be original. Colts were serial numbered to slide from about 1938 To early 1943 ,not WWI era. Grips seem to be original. Mag should be unmarked two tone. To give a price on these they have to be stripped all the way down. A couple things that may make them near worthless is any alteration that can not be corrected,cracked frame/slide. Oversize bushing put in one of the grip holes from original being stripped and two dozen other things. Barrel should be correct and not much of a problem if dark,pitted or shot out as this was al corrosive ammo back then. You are in luck TN Military Collectors is in Cool Springs at The Marriott this Fri& Sat. Five bucks to get in,ask for Scott Gahimer ? Gehimer/ Table he love to take them down and tell you all about them. I am pretty sure all 1911 WWI slides had front sight milled into them unlike WWII which were replaceable. If Scott is not there several other experts will be. Cool Gun Site.com will have photos of correct bbl,and small parts. Ballpark $ If Boogerd $300 if mostly correct with no alterations $1200 All correct $1600-$1900 Get it looked at.Good Luck Yours was made in 1918 on the last big run when most of them were made so it is most common gun.
  10. Went today (Sunday) from about 11to 1 - one word - Lame
  11. Yes,got in line at 3PM and did not realize it was a mile long as you could not see because it was wrapped around a couple streets.When we did all see at 5PM we were not even close only a couple people left. At 6:30 we were still a block away and trying to figure out the math with the RNC Ticket Giveaway. So if 10 thousand already in and another 7-8 thousand still in line did they just give tickets to anyone asking instead of a cut off? We could see a few extra to make up for empty protester seats but no cutoff? Never got near it but got to meet a lot of great like minded people so kind of made up for it. Seen a large amount of Pro Trump Hispanics there,and on leaving a small handful of protesters. Got home cold and tired and watched Nashville CH 2 News and true to form headlines Two Thousand Protesters and a couple hundred waiting in line with tickets. Local Fake News.
  12. Tube nut had been cross threaded and tightened in past by previous owner.
  13. Found parts at local gunsmiths,they will sell spare parts as long as it is something as common as this. i would rather see it in front of me than order it from eBay or such. Thanks all.
  14. M1 Carbine

    My first one was a like new Inland. It started to jam after a few hundred rounds so my first venture into cleaning one. Found out is was dirty with carbon and dry. After shooting them often I found out,clean them every 700-800 rounds or every time you use Augila Ammo sold buy CMP ,it is dirty crap. Do not use grease anywhere unless you going to war,mud &firing hundred of rounds a minute. Grease will attract dirt and burnt powder. Wipe off all extra oil after cleaning. Removing and assembling bolt and slide can be tricky,watch a Utube Vid on this. Complete strip and clean is only needed first time and then about every two years. Hoppes, bronze brush& and oil are all that is needed in between full cleaning
  15. That was my plan but tube is completely collapsed. Was going to Dremel it out. I took it to my gunsmith who is also Remington Armorer to have him remove nut. He found that the nut had been cross threaded and over tightened. He tried everything to remove it but it was now totaled. He cut the tube so I cold get my handguard back safe. Thanks
