  1. Hi Johnny! You're among friends. I'm envious. I love the smell of freshly delivered ammo.
  2. Pretty much only #9 shot works "right" when loading 410 shells on my MEC. What size shot are you trying to load? If it's bigger than #9 shot, that's likely the first issue. Second suggestion would be to tighten the shot & powder bottles down lightly. Don't screw them on super hard. Thirdly, does your charge bar have the rubber/polymer insert for the shot side? (See image) if not, those old solid bars 'cut' the shot as you try to slide the bar making it hard to move it. Try getting the newer style; it helps.
  3. I do understand where you are coming from @bobsguns. Some of these young 'adults' probably couldn't be trusted with a can opener. But my take on it has always been that if you are "old enough" to be drafted & handed an M-16 & told to go kill enemies of the USA, you should also be old enough to buy a beer & a handgun (well, probably not at the same time, but you get the gist.) Either we raise the age a person can be indentured to Uncle Sam to age 21 or we start treating 18 y/o "adults" as true and actual adults. Personally, I found it inconsistent with logic that @ age 18, 19, & 20, I would be handed a fully auto-machine gun (M-16 or M-60) w/bunches of ammo & told to go guard the nukes night after night, but I couldn't walk into Bob's Gun Emporium & buy that S&W 686 I'd been wanting for years. And having a beer with the guys after work? Nope, I couldn't be trusted by my own country or state to "handle" that either. But I was volun-told to secure the most dangerous weapons on the planet. Hmmm...something always seemed off with that inconsistency. Just putting my thoughts out there. For what it's worth 10 USC Ch. 12: THE MILITIA defines age 17 as the point a young man is ready to take part in defense of his community & nation (excerpt below): §246. Militia: composition and classes; (a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
  4. Do you fill both up at the same gas station? Maybe just a bad batch of gas? Naw...it's never that simple. Had to toss it out there though. My 2001 Tacoma just check-engined me for a new O2 sensor. Must just be that time of year.
  5. Good to have you on board. And, yes, Tennessee is great.
  6. That's great news. I never did understand the restriction but like many (most?) gun laws, there wasn't any logic behind it.
  7. I'll second the motion...if that helps.
  8. I'm with you @Thursty the tang safety is a plus in my book.
  9. That is quite a project, but I like the end result. You do great work.
  10. Any of these ring a bell? https://www.eatthis.com/failed-restaurant-chains-1990s/
  11. Good to have you here. Thanks for doing your time with Uncle Sam. It's appreciated. Hopefully you found those Ruger Service Six revolver grips. I'm a GP-100 fan. Ruger makes some stout six guns. They're all pretty good.
  12. Dang @alleycat72, you and your buddies have definitely found a hot spot of hogs there in TX. I used to hunt south of San Antonio, near Devine, and we'd get maybe three apiece (3 hunters) on a weekend hunt & we had fun & were happy with that. Your setup is sweet, too (night vision & suppressor.) Definitely the way to go. Maybe that's what's helping you all get so many multiples; you aren't nearly as loud as we were, running our unsuppressed guns. And - for the record for those still unsure since it came up earlier - hogs are perfectly fine to eat. Just gut 'em, skin 'em, & get them on ice (in a cooler) quickly. Roasts & sausage were my favorite "wild boar" meats.
  13. In my first hand, been there & done that experience, standard CCI 500 small pistol primers failed to ignite the H110 powder of my .357 Mag load. First time, while tapping the stuck bullet out of the barrel/forcing cone juncture, I thought it had to be a fluke so I tried it again. Nope, not a fluke, as I tapped yet another stuck bullet out of the barrel. Lesson learned - if trying to ignite H110 (or W296; same thing), use a small pistol magnum primer (like a CCI 550).
  14. Title your ATV. Don't title your ATV. It doesn't matter or affect me in any way. But TN law says it will need to be titled & I simply asked if this ATV for sale had a clear title so I could decide if I wanted to buy it or not.
  15. From Tennessee law: (c) (1) Notwithstanding any other provision of the law to the contrary, off-highway motor vehicles purchased after June 1, 1983, shall be subject to the certificate of title and special identification device provisions of this chapter and § 55-6-101, when such off-highway motor vehicles are operated on lands, other than a highway, in this state.
