  1. Carrying like that is a good way to give yourself a vasectomy.
  2. I had Lasik about ten years ago  at age 50 and did need readers as soon as the bandages came off. No change in my vision since then. Well worth it, think I've saved the cost in eye exams and contacts.
  3. The smokehouses I saw as a kid had the fire on the outside so there was minimal heat on the meat. They just wanted the smoke to flavor and help preserve the meat, not cook it.
  4. Maybe the general public doesn't notice tip offs to concealed carry so your setup may be ok. Since you have your HCP it really doesn't matter.  But the flap on your belt and the belt sag on that side scream  "I am armed with a gun in my pants".   I make a game of it out in public by trying to notice who is armed to increase my awareness. The biggest problem with IWB holster is the belt attachment that is a give away. Some are small and work with a .380 which I usually carry. Business attire is required at work so a smaller pistol is in order. I have almost went fulltime to OWB with a light jacket or fashion vest most of the time.  Again, not one of those photographer's vest, they also are a tip off to going armed.
  5. The flap over your belt and the sag of the belt on that side scream concealed carry.
  6. I don't think open carry is all that good of an idea but I don't like to see a citizen get his second amendment rights violated.   http://www.mlive.com/news/flint/index.ssf/2015/07/open-carry_christmas_eve_gun_s.html
  7. I used to go to those gun auctions at Powell. Most guns were bringing more than you could buy one on Gunbroker.com for.This is before the buyers premium and sales tax. Made no sense whatever so I quit going as there were no deals to be had.
  8. The combat pistol courses like they would be worthwhile, I may give the first one a try.  Don't see a lot of need for the expensive sniper courses.
  9. Thanks for the replies. I'll give Tactical a try.   Al
  10. Haven't been to an indoor range in a while and want to go this weekend. Live in west Knoxville so the Lovell Road location is most convenient for me. Has the new ownership changed things at Tactical Advantage or is it the same surly employees with terrible customer service? Last winter day I was at Frontier Firearms it was colder on the range than outside due to the fresh air system. Have never been to Gunny's in Maryville. Recommendations?  
  11. Don't confuse conservatives with Republicans, in most cases they are totally different animals. In Tennessee, the country club Republicans (they are the ones in charge) are the lap dogs of big business interests.
  12. Don't know, I didn't file a claim with the insurance company.
  13. I haven't done anything since I got the initial report straightened out. I took a couple of times to get the correct numbers in the system. They were fat fingered on two of them, so they have been active in the NCIC system since then. 
  14. I figured the same but it would make good business sense to do it. Now they are out whatever they gave for the Walther.
  15. I asked the same question and the officer said it was.
