  1. I don't know how many 22s I've had or what scopes I've had on all of them.  However, I do know that my favorite so far has been an old Tasco 4 x 32. I find variable power scopes to be distracting on 22s.  That being said, I don't shoot competitions or anything. My 22s are used to shoot squirrels and groundhogs.  They get tossed around in the truck, get knocked over, get bumped up against trees, and almost neglected.  I have this old Tesco on a 10/22, and I have a Simmons 3-9x32 on another 10/22.  The Tasco is much more clear than the Simmons, especially if you turn the Simmons up to 9.     This is not the same model I have, but I'm thinking about buying it and replacing the Simmons.      http://www.opticsplanet.com/tasco-riflescope-ph3-9x32.html
  2. If you're looking for a higher power scope without busting the bank, I would highly recommend the Vortex Crossfire series.  It is certainly on the more economical end of the spectrum.  I have one on a Remington 700 .308 and could not be more happy.  I have only shot the gun to about 300 yards.  I've looked at about 800 yards, and I most definitely would feel comfortable using the scope at that distance.  Below is the model I have.    http://shop.opticsplanet.com/vortex-crossfire-ii-6-18x44-ao-rifle-scope.html?_iv_code=VX-RS-CSSAO6-CF2-31033&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=plusbox-beta&gclid=CKic24P4iMsCFVAvgQodg-MHcg
  3. I am proud to say that I have absolutely no idea who this lady is.  Therefore, I could give a rat's ass what she thinks about anything.  I'm going to go out a limb and say that the majority of people in MS would feel the way. 
  4. To my recollection, I have never shot Glock 27.  I have owned and shot other Glocks, and they are fine pistols.  I would not knock anyone who carries one.  However, I carry an SR9c daily.  I have never had an issue from it.  It fits my hand well, I can shoot it well, and it conceals well.  I like it well enough that I can say, without reservation, that I would never trade my SR9c for a Glock.  If I were given a Glock and did not have an SR9c, knowing what I know now, I would sell it to buy a Ruger.    As far as the military / LEO argument, there are many reasons why Glock is so widely used, and again, I am not going to knock Glock.  However, I would not let that alone persuade me one way or the other.  To me, that is akin to saying, "The majority of LEOs have Dodges for patrol cars, so my next vehicle is going to be a dodge.  They must be the best for the job."     They are both reliable guns; pick which ever fits you and your needs the best.   As an aside, this response was very annoying to type.  My computer (Surface) autocorrects Glock to Block and Ruger to Roger. 
  5. Didn't know we had so many damn Yankees hanging around here.  :)   Congratulations on your escape and welcome to TN.  I think you'll enjoy your time here. 
  6. My lovely wife got me a 10/22 Takedown.  She kind of a prepper, so it was an easy sell for get one for our bug out bag. 
  7.   I know yours does.  I was responding to Bersa's question regarding a late 70s Blazer. 
  8.   It has been a while since I messed with the older four wheel drives, but if I remember correctly, some of the np203 transfercases, which came in the 1/2 ton trucks, were full time four wheel drive with the option to lock them into a more traditional four wheel drive mode.  Just like an open differential, if there was nothing but slip from the front axle, all the power would go to the front with the hubs unlocked.  To make the locking hubs work on these, you had to get rid of the full time four wheel drive.    My memory is a little hazy on all that stuff, but I think that is the gist of it. 
  9. I don't think this truck would have a split axle.    As far as the hubs goes, if its been a while since they were used, in my experience, they're probably just stuck from grime in the hubs.  I would pull them off, clean and lubricate them, stick them back on, and if still no go, it'd be time for some manual hubs.
  10. If your brother hasn't specifically said, "Hey, don't carry your gun here," or other similar words, there would be no question what I would do.    I carry every single day.  I don't care where I am going.  If anyone tells me they don't want me to carry a gun at their house, I would respect their wishes, and then I'd make a decision if I wanted to go or not.  In the past approximately 10 yrs that I've been carrying, I've never once been asked if I were carrying.  If it has been spotted, nobody has ever asked me about it.  All that is to say that my opinion, for basically all situations, is that if you keep your mouth shut and your gun concealed, there will be no issue.    I had Thanksgiving dinner at my house with ten friends and family members. I had an sr9c concealed on my hip the whole time.  Conversation was good, turkey was great, and guns were never a topic. 
  11. Yeah, TSC is certainly on the short list of my favorite stores.  Good service, good prices, and good selection; that about does it for me. 
  12. I bough my wife a new LCP recently. I decided to go run a few rounds through it before I turned it over to her. All I had for a target was Santa. I placed him at about 7-10 yards and let them fly. [URL=http://s1207.photobucket.com/user/72-oj/media/santa_zpsbzwsslbk.jpg.html][/URL] My wife wears scrubs on most days at work and wanted something that could be easily carried with scrubs. I installed a pocket clip on it, so she can clip it in her waistband. She's not going to enjoy shooting it, but these guns were never intended to be shot much. I have one that I've shot a decent amount, and they can be surprisingly accurate for what they are. [URL=http://s1207.photobucket.com/user/72-oj/media/lcp_zpsuvjypytf.jpg.html][/URL]
  13. Does anyone have a good source for some 80% lowers?  Looking to pick up a few.  Thanks.
