  1. Might you send some photos to hozoni@comcast.net? Thank you.
  2. Seen nothing but a pic of them so far. Looks good. Will it handle a 6x10 enclosed trailer?

    Carry History

    Got a 3913 in a combo deal with a HiPoint some years back. Caught a young man coming out of a gunshop just cussin' up a storm at the owner. As he was parked next to me, I struck up a conversation with him and found that the LGS owner had really low-balled him on a buy offer. And being the greedy unscrupulous character that I am...I offered 50 bucks more. lol. He took it! Couldn't believe it. Kept the HiPoint and shot it for a while. Sold it as fast as I could. The 3913 stayed for a year or so and then I found something else calling me. Yeah, I stupidly sold it.
  4. I have the above mentioned "beast" JD refers to in 9mm. It is Heavy. Fun to shoot. Accurate...and did I mention HEAVY? It is. I like Rock Island products. Even have that 22/TCM conversion model, which is pretty much the same gun. Been thinking and wondering about the RI Sem-auto shotty. Any comments on them?
  5. Want a nicer truck myself. Current one just isn't getting it for me. Would really like to go the Toyota route, but I don't have enough blood to sell and pay for a truck! Prices are the worst I've seen in years. About the only ones happy with the situation are the blankety-blank dealers! Sorry Magic(carpetrides), not personal. Just a generalization. lol
  6. That's sort of my issue as well. Want out of Davidson County/Metro! But so much against that move. The new place. The move. And Lord help me, all the crap I've accumulated in the last 30 years. Would cost a fortune to have it packed, moved and unpacked!
  7. Thanks for the info. I think you are right on that. I have a Gen3 frame I use with a 22 conversion kit and thought it might be nice to keep a 9 mil upper in the case with it. Sort of a range backup. lol. Actually it would be perfect to do that. I can only carry so much in my range bag these days; and any little bit might just help.

    CZ 75

    Better than the Hipower? What sacrilege you utter! LOL. From the owner of CZ 75/85 and a PCR.

    CZ 75

    Walther. CZ. Canik. You have really good taste in pistols. I won't argue that these are the best ever; but all very solid and dependable weapons.
  10. LIES! LIES!! All lies. Well the references to me anyway.
  11. Yes. So? Doesn't mean I can't talk to the man. Edit and Addition. I will say I didn't mean this to be as snarky as it appears. But I had a comment to make to the OP.
  12. You ranted? Didn't seem like it to me. LOL. Is the upper compatible with anything other than Gen 5 models?
  13. Now you're just being mean!! LOL! Those look suspiciously similar to some I have squirreled away.
  14. The buyer may have gotten a rare buy. Searching for the last 25 minutes or so yielded no positive result. Amazon seemed to have been a seller, as well as Walmart. Neither have any in stock. Went 30+ links deep in searching with no success. Might have taken them if I'd been here sooner!
  15. No matter what the circumstances, prayers for Ashley, Wynonna, and their families. A tragic end to a great career.
  16. WOW! I think we have unleashed the Hounds here! LOL! JD_Shellnut...you are going to fit right in here! Just wait until you've had interactions with some of the "Others" here. It's going to be eye-opening for you.
  17. No comments? Ok...brownie point for the source.
  18. True. On both counts. Did it once. PITA is a very appropriate description of the process back then. Maybe better now?
  19. My first thought was a compact. Just looks like it to me. But been known to be wrong.
  20. Already been said...but my condolences, Grunt, for the loss of your friend. And for the loss of one of the very best of our nation. Prayers for family and you.
  21. Owned several Tauri, but never the 669/689. Nothing against them. I just never ran across one. I have to say that's a fine looking revolver!
  22. Yes, Interesting is a good choice of words here. We've been watching the market pricing in our area lately. Looks great until we factor in the cost of moving and buying someplace else. Payments would be just short of astronomical for us now. But property taxes in Metro Nashville are almost as bad. So watching the situation. Living on social security and our retirement funds doesn't really allow for much hope of a location change. Although a family member who is a realtor has been watching for a place for us. She has ran across a couple of nice, surprisingly low priced homes recently. They are out there. Just have to be willing to search and be patient. And be ready to move FAST if it appears. She found us one in our desired location. It sold before we could even get a call in on it.
  23. Sweeeeet!! But wouldn't take that into the woods. My old Taurus 44 Hunter would do the same job. Just wouldn't make me look as cool! LOL!
  24. Plus 1 for the Louisville Show. Always meant to go, but just never got around to it. Now the drive and all the walking would about kill me. But have been told by attendees that it's one of the better shows in the South. YMMV It would bother me not to be able to buy/sell there not being a KY resident. So that sorta takes the rush to go away.
