  1. Money bomb for NRA on 3/24

    I’m in.
  2. Ammo Prices Are Going Up

    When that demand is still equal to or above the supply. Demand can be declining and still above supply.
  3. Gun deaths by the numbers

    Go to the source. Quite easy to get the numbers. I didn't see any newer numbers, but I'll look. https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2013/crime-in-the-u.s.-2013/offenses-known-to-law-enforcement/expanded-homicide/expanded_homicide_data_table_8_murder_victims_by_weapon_2009-2013.xls
  4. [GUN SALES] I don’t email…

    I think it's more of an issue of they believe if the person isn't willing to talk in person, it's more likely to be a scam. People get scammed over email all of the time. Less so over the phone on something like this. I think your When I see "text only" response is the exact same response for many about dealing over email. Many prefer to simply have a call. I know I do. Easier to ask and answer questions quickly on a call vs email or text.
  5. Hope that is the case for me in a couple months. Congrats.
  6. Golfists....

    If you seriously want to give it a go, spend a little money and get a lesson to start. It's way easier to start with good habits that will make you play better and make the overall experience much more enjoyable. You shouldn't need more than 2-3 lessons to get the basics down. Start with short irons, not a driver or fairway wood. Start with a PW or 7 iron and work your way up.
  7. Looking for a metal shop

    You could try Welding Unlimited in Franklin, but they aren't cheap. Don't know until you ask.
  8. 50% Build Serial Number

    All Things Engraved. Over on Carothers by the Puffy Muffin. They have engraved my SBR’s.
  9. Lab radar or Magnetospeed

    Nope, no issues.
  10. Lab radar or Magnetospeed

    Had both. Have a lab radar now. Prefer the lab radar, but they both work. Strapping anything to your barrel will affect it, but if you just want velocity, the magnetospeed is fine.
  11. TRWA office forced to leave

    Anyone have a link they care to share on Facebook so I can share it. Already contacted them on their website.
  12. David, Take it for what it's worth (not much probably ), but I think the reason so many do come here to talk politics is most regulars see the others on this forum as friends (and quite honestly more than a gun forum) and it is what friends talk about. Granted, it is much easier in most cases to discuss a topic with those who most likely agree with you, but as we know, we have a very diverse group on here. I don't always agree with one side or the other and in many cases have said to myself, what the hell is wrong with that person, but there are also many cases where some comment has made me rethink a position. I believe the world has its issues today because everyone is so worried about hurt feelings. We certainly should remain civil and not attack personally (well, unless it's really needed for extenuating circumstances ), but I personally believe it is also what brings people to this site. I guess I was brought up to defend my opinion, hopefully with facts. I am not above changing my opinion if someone can convince me. But I also am perfectly ok saying we will have to agree to disagree. More people need to learn to do that IMO. If I am honest, most of the gun talk on here has nothing to do with anything I do with guns. I am not into tactical mumbo jumbo, or carrying 24/7, or which plastic gun is the newest. I suspect I am not alone. My passion is rimfire's and there is virtually no discussion of rimfires on this forum. Probably because there are dedicated rimfire forums, I get that. My point is simply that sometimes we need more than just guns to bring us to a site. You and the admin team do a great job of keeping the peace so to speak. I definitely think some go over the line, but maybe a consideration should be more into the area of banning members who do nothing but cause trouble. Or maybe have two custom streams available. One with unread threads including politics and one without. I suspect most use the unread feature to see what is going on and this is why they don't like it. Just hide it for those that don't want it. My two cents. It doesn't really matter to me one way or the other, but I do find myself less involved with it gone.
  13. There is a rumor that this may not be the only trist with a metro employee. Curious to see if there is anything to it. If there is, then she certainly has to go. For the first instance, while not what I would hope, I also have been on the other side of cheating and know full well that things in her personal life probably were already to a point that the cheating was the least of her worries. Doesn't make it right, or moral, or anything, but I don't judge people solely by that measure. Walk a mile on another's shoes as they say. To even bring up her sons suicide as being related, even if it was, is pretty tacky. You wouldn't say it to your friend, why would you say that to her or anyone for that matter? It makes no difference other than to pile on. The only real issue I have is using taxpayer funds to bankroll things along the way. I don't agree with and don't like her policies, although I am confident I will never like any Nashville mayors policies. It will be liberal for the rest of time. It's just a fact of being a big city which is also why I don't live there. Lots of glass houses around here it seems.
  14. I need to buy a scope for a new competition sporter rifle and figured I would try here first. I am looking for one of the following scopes only with 30mm tubes in like new condition. I am not interested in any other variations due to weight. Reticle doesn't matter as it will be sent back to Leupold to be changed unless it is the first one listed. If you have one sitting that you don't use, please let me know. I will buy new in a few days if I don't get any offers. Leupold VX-3 6.5-20x40mm (66555) Leupold VX-3i 6.5-20x40mm (170886) Leupold VX-3i 4.5-14x40mm (170701) Thanks.
