    Tell me about your favorite gunsmith

    For that, I’d wait until I was going over to Knoxville and take it to @LawEnforcementSalesTN. It’s a job that any competent smith should be able to do, but it’s one that’s easy to screw up, too. Nothing like a baffle strike because some fool threaded it off center.

    A murder the MSM seems to have ignored.

    It's gotten a pretty fair amount of coverage here in Nashville proper. I had relatives in Atlanta asking me about it the other day. It's awful all the way around. One of those kids was 12.

    Best cleaning tools?

    I think the main ingredient that’s not listed on all of those cleaners is old fashioned elbow grease.

    wanted Vortex Rifle or Scout scopes?

    How do you like that Leatherwood. I’ve thought about picking one up for years.

    soldering/desoldering irons and electronic parts

    I’m surprised they didn’t have to declare it a Super Fund site after it closed. There’s no telling how many tons of PCB’s leaked out of some of those old transformers and stuff. But yeah, if you had time to wander, you’d find about anything you could need or want.

    Hug your family a little closer tonight.

    Gracious. I’m thankful that she’s okay. I just said a prayer of thanks for you guys.

    Javanco closed years ago - but was a real treat back in the day if you had time to look around. The Gulch hasn’t been the same since. Randolph & Rice closed a few years ago, too. These days, Adafruit is a lot of fun if you’re learning or wanting to get inspired for a project.

    Best cleaning tools?

    I’m with you on this. The indispensable part of my kit in recent years is some Norton’s Universal Cleaning Sticks from County Comm. https://countycomm.com/products/nortons-u-c-s-universal-cleaning-stick?variant=27918689798 Funny thing is, I had no idea I needed them until they threw a couple in with an order. Now I use them for all kinds of stuff and have bought dozens for folks.

    Super Bowl

    I saw the Microsoft ad last week. It’s my favorite by far.

    Super Bowl

    These teams are playing like whoever wins has to go to the White House.

    The feather knife.....

    That's pretty cool! I feel like this knife is crying out for an old school beaded leather sheath.

    AAC New Products

    I’m excited to see the Jaeger. An affordable, relatively lightweight, direct thread .30 caliber suppressor would likely sell pretty well.

    That said, items that make cold weather outside more tolerable are always appreciated. Socks. Chemical hand-warmers. Small propane refills. Protein shakes. This stuff will always be accepted with gladness. And, if you’re concerned with handing people money - this alleviates that risk.

    Nashville Homeless

    For folks choosing to live in a ‘homeless camp’ - by and large - they’re there by choice - a lot of mentalities and conditions contribute to that. But, at least in middle Tennessee, if they’re staying in a camp as opposed to taking advantage of some of the resources available, they’re in a place that’s known to authorities and aid workers, they’re trying to stay out of trouble, and they’re not particularly interested in doing something else (at least right now.) Their survival skills are probably more well developed than most of ours ever will be. Couple that with really not welcoming unknown outsiders into their community, and you would probably feel that your time was wasted. That’s not to discourage you from getting involved. There are a ton of places to plug in your desire to help in ways that really are meaningful. Happy to help you find one if you like.
