  1. I'm looking for a Rem 700 in .22-250, no heavy barrels please, but the triangle VTR is ok. I prefer a FTF transaction in E. Tennessee to avoid the TICS BS I had to deal with last year. Looking to buy, but I have a Gen 3 Glock 17 in OD green (unfired) I'd probably be willing to put towards it if you need a G17. I'm a Rem 700 guy so that's my druthers, but if you have a high quality rifle or barreled action in the caliber I'll listen. Trying to put together a hike-able 'yote gun. I have a beautiful XR-100 in .22-250 but I think it weighs as much as my motorcycle. Thanks, Lance.
  2. Cool thanks, and in turn I'll let you in on a secret. If I was a single issue voter Trump wouldn't be my guy, he isn't any great friend of the 2A enthusiast.
  3. Fresh from California here, you sir are wrong. They will attempt to chisel, hammer, poke, scrape, and eventually demolish your gun rights ASAP.
  4. I was delayed once in CA for a couple days, no explanation but they cleared it pretty quickly. I hear that can happen for all kinds of reasons. Other than that I bought dozens of guns there, other than the ridiculous ten day waiting period it always went smoothly there.
  5. I get it guys, I just feel without them we'll see the erosion of the 2nd even quicker. I have no beefs with anyone that decides to go GOA or any other gun rights org, as long as we are doing something. I'm a GOA member along with a few other, I send them more than I do the NRA these days. We all know about Wayne's suits and travel expenses etc... He's pretty much like the TV preacher asking Jesus for a Lear Jet through your donations. But that doesn't mean the message is necessarily bad right? Let's not forget who it is trying to make him look even worse than he is, we have a true enemy o
  6. Were you denied or delayed papa61? Did you send in the appeal then?
  7. Well... to support the NRA. You never did it for the duffel bag in the first place right? Those can be had for $19 on Amazon. I usually accept the "gift" and give it to someone a little tighter on money at the range or send it so someone on a gun forum. I'm wearing my NRA hat right now and after all the years it's probably the only thing I've worn or even used. I just feel we need, depending on our circumstances of course, to throw some dog food to the biggest dog fighting for us. For all their faults, they dwarf any other efforts out there. I don't know if I will ever "upgrade" again,
  8. Yeah no problem. It's like now you're a life member right? So when you pay to upgrade to Endowment life it earns you an upgrade to them begging you to become a Patron life member. When you do upgrade to Patron, then and only then will they anoint you with mailings begging you to pay to become a Benefactor! Finally, you get get to the grand poobah of life memberships... you will be then invited to the Golden Circle of Patriotic Sainthood. I'm not sure if there's and end to it... So to summarize, each time they get you to send another $250-500 they will give you a new title, a new sticke
  9. Of course I am. I always thought your user name was funny being in the business I am. Are you a heating guy by chance? Especially in the older days of standing pilots the "blue dragon" was a phenomenon that happened because of delayed ignition on raw gas/lpg. Then "poof, no eyebrows!"
  10. I was able to get a 3-man lease on 110 acres in Virginia with stands and cameras in place. My BIL and I, and the caretaker of the land are the only three allowed to hunt there. It's 40 miles from me and Virginny out of state tags will run me about $250. Sign everywhere, plenty of deer on the cameras as well as bear, 'yote, and bobcat. Heated hunting shack on site. Our share was $450 each and that covers property tax, food plot seed, and tractor rental for a few days to plant this spring. I'll be expected (along with my BIL) to spend a few weekends up there fortifying stands and blinds, clearin
  11. So here's the latest! I found a great deal on Armslist on a Rem 700 I have been looking for for quite some time... Just decided what the hell let's try this again. So my FFL calls last night and tells me the rifle was there and to come on over. I get there and after exchanging pleasantries we get down to the business of the background check, but instead of using the online system he calls it in. He's on the phone for a couple minutes and the subject of my denial and subsequent overturn come up. She asks him (and me) if it had to do with a charge in California many years ago, and we r
  12. Was that an upgrade or a new permit Reefer? I have to say the enhanced permit process and timeline here in TN was downright reasonable. I think it was almost exactly 2 weeks from application to card in hand and the fees weren't horrible. Good class, slightly different (mostly better) laws here. California permit took 13 months with 2 interviews and an 8 hour class with quals. In the end the permit costs about $500 for two years and you an only carry the (3 in my county) the weapons listed on the permit. Renewal was another class with quals and another $300. If you live in the full-on lib
  13. I generally just use a CC for convenience and expedience, I really wouldn't have a problem with sending a money order to an established seller... I have a problem with USPS.
