    I agree. I finally made some good progress on the world's most behind schedule fence project

    The niche I wish manufacturers would find

    Have you shot a P239? Dead nuts accurate, and so comfy IWB. Mine was purchased as a 40 and shot maybe 10 rounds until my 357 sig mags and barrel arrived. My favorite concealed gun in the best cartridge out there. If "near Nashville" means the south side please give me a shout if you would like to swing by and touch of a mag or 3 Mark
  4. For some reason it reminded me of the C-18 locker aliens in MIB II
  5. The safe is 10' from the bed. There are friends easily at hand and the door stays unlocked all night
  6. Then, I tell everyone goodnight and close the safe door. I sleep very well at night Mark

    The Garden Thread

    We are building 2 more 10x50 chicken runs. The three we built last year have been good and scratched in. I'm thinking a total of about 7 will allow us to keep a couple green for the girls, a couple growing cover crops ( which will also go to the girls and 2-3 producing food close to year round. The aquaponics system was refined over the winter and is now producing a ton of leafy greens things. We eat what we want but the majority goes to the pigs and chicks.We also set up a large sprouting operation over the winter. We have about 30 bus tubs of various organic non- gmo grains sprouting. This will cut back soon. We mostly used this to keep the various critters in green material during the winter. Still haven't worked out exactly what we will do with the aquaponics once it gets too hot to grow leafy things. Probably build a few wicking beds to grow various peppers. The fish water is excellent for irrigation and that help keep the water clean for the fish because we put in makeup. Mark

    Why should I buy an AR-15?

    Gun control panic??? I managed to live 50 years without one. Now, just a few years later I own more than I care to state publicly. After running a friend's in a carbine class I bought an AR-15 and then an AR-10. After that I started building them. For me, putting them together is almost as much fun as shooting them. You don't have to stick with .223/5.56. It sounds like you have some nice semi-autos already. If the AR isn't floating your boat, buy something that does.
  9. Dude stuck his head out a little too far for just a sec BANG! ond Good job officer

    Ruger Precision Rifle

    on my list as well. As soon as I get off my lazy butt I'm going to get a dedicated 22 can underway

    M1 Carbine

    I just want a carbine. I have a buddy who has a nice one that he doesn't shoot. He's put maybe 10 rounds through it in 20 years. I even bought reloading dies and brass for it hoping he would give in and sell it to me but nope...

    Non NFA 11.5" AR

    Wow... I don't need ANY help at all being inaccurate. I do that just fine all by myself. Built 300 blk pistols for myself and my wife. They work really well and are surprisingly quiet when suppressed.
  14. The pistol version of this class was held at Shooters Supply. The lead instructor has access to several ranges in the area but I think the plan is to hold the carbine class at Shooters as well. OpSpec Mark
  15. 1) attend MOAC-R with OpSpec in Paducah. Will be a memorable time 2) acquire a bolt action 300 BLK that uses standard AR mags 3) get a dedicated 22 can 4) if I can get in good enough shape take Hugh Coffee's Ditch Medicen class
