  1. Yep we have determined it is more than likely a log perch
  2. A buddy caught this fishing in a new river spot yesterday. We have never seen or caught one before and just wondering what it is? How common are they? Thanks in advance.
  3. Any interest in the Hamilton I have for sale or trade in this same forum?
  4. It is a classic for sure. I really enjoy the watch and have received a few compliments on it while wearing it. Just time to change it up!
  5. Up for trade or possible sale is my Hamilton Khaki 44mm mechanical watch. The watch has been worn and carries what I would call light desk diving marks on the bezel. The crystal is in great shape with 0 marks. The watch keeps excellent time. The original Hamilton leather band could stand to be replaced, but IMO a well-broken in leather watch-band is the best! I have had this watch for a few years and bought it used myself, so unfortunately no box or papers. I am wanting to primarily trade this timepiece for another watch more suitable to my lifestyle. I am thinking maybe a Casio G-Shock of some flavor. From the brief research I have done (reviewing WUS and Ebay ads) this model Hamilton appears to be selling anywhere in the neighborhood of $250-500, Of course this depends on condition and whether or not the watch comes with original box and papers, which again mine does not. If you offer me a G-Shock, be prepared to make up the difference in cash if needed, depending on which model of course. I am open to other watches as well, in similar style to a G-Shock. I would also consider selling the watch outright as well. Will ship if needed. Thanks for reading and PM for more info or if you have any questions. Also, sorry for the terrible pictures. I'm no photographer nor do I own a camera good enough to capture fine enough detail for a watch ad.
  6. I am by no means a stranger to building my own rifles. Ive got two SBR’s I built from the ground up, and two standard AR platform rifles as well. That being said I have never built an AR 10 and was actually completely unaware about the potential for tolerance differences, part compatibility, etc. So thanks for bringing that up Garufa! I learnt somethin today!
  7. Wonder what the weight on that bad boy is? Lol. Nutnfancy seems to really dig the S&W M&P 10. He gave it a great review, watched it yesterday. The Sport version rings in at around $850. Not too bad..
  8. Thanks for your input! Id love to have a Sig 716, but as you suggested it is just more than I can swing right now.
  9. I still havent shot the Marlin 35 I bought from you!
  10. Building is definitely an option as well, just havent looked in a lot of places besides PSA yet.
  11. Alright, going through a real first-world problem here folks! I am looking at purchasing my first 308 chambered AR rifle in the near future. I am looking to spend around the $1k mark, which obviously limits my choices some. The rifle will be used for hunting and the occasional range session. So far I have looked at these options: PSA Gen 2 build (the cheapest option, so room in the budget for an optic), a Savage MSR 10 Hunter (really like the way this rifle looks), a S&W M&P 10 or M&P 10 Sport, and the Springfield Saint Victor. So far the Springfield I think has the narrow lead over the Savage. Just looking for input, let's talk! Any other rifles I should be considering that I haven't listed besides Diamondback?
  12. I have been doing a little research and there is a well-reviewed independent agency in my area (Chattanooga area) by the name of Atlas Insurance. They have a 5 star rating with 63 google reviews. Think I may give them a ring and see what they can do for me. Shot in the dark, any first-hand experience here with them? Its funny because when I was younger, all I heard was that as you get older insurance gets cheaper, that there was a big drop off at age 25, yadda yadda ya. It is quite the opposite actually. I am 33 and insurance has done nothing but went up steadily for me over the years.
  13. Thanks, I'll check em out.
  14. Ahh ok. Im assumning they charge for this service? Or are they like the travel agents of yester-year?
  15. An independent agent as in one of the two licensed agents in my town? I have a State Farm agent and a Farmers agent. Will they shop for me? Sorry for the ignorance, never done it that way.
  16. That brings up another point. I talked with one friend who seemed to think I should just stay with Allstate. His reasoning was that Ive had positive interactions with them all this time, through both claims, and that in his book was reason enough to stay, even at a higher rate. I really dont like how much my rate went up after my accident though, especially consider it was MY first ever claim with them. My wifes claim was 5 or 6 years ago as well. No tickets either.
  17. Sorry, I forgot this ad was still up. The bow has been sold. Closing ad now.
  18. I have been a faithful Allstate customer for many years, about 12 to be exact. I carry our auto and home insurance with them. I have kept them so long because our rates have always been reasonable (not great, but reasonable) and had a very positive experience with them when my wife had a mild auto accident several years ago (our only claim ever with them at the time). I myself had been accident free the WHOLE time with them up until January 10th of this year. I had my first auto accident in 12 years. It was my fault, and I got a citation for failure to yield the ROW. Well, as to be expected, my insurance rates went up, but they went up a very considerable amount. So now I am considering shopping around to see if I can get better rates elsewhere. I live in a small town, and the only local agents I have are a Farmers agent and a State Farm agent. Keep in mind I do have this accident showing now. I like hearing first hand experiences, and I put a lot of value on my TGO friends' opinions. So, any input on where I should look? Opinions on companies to avoid? I have not shopped for insurance in over a decade, so Im out of the loop. Thanks in advance.
  19. Yes it did help, thanks. Also thanks for the tax stamp information.
  20. Unfortunately there is not a TN ammo tax stamp on it.
  21. I recently inherited my grandfather’s Colt Agent that he has carried for years and years. I am lucky enough that he is still with me, but he is getting of an advanced age and is starting to think about these things. Just wanted to share a couple pictures. Also pictured are a couple boxes of ammo that came with the gun that appear to have some age on them as well. Anybody got any info they would care to share on the white-cased USAC ammo? Never seen them before.
