  1. We're talking about Memphis here. It's already ranked in the top 5 most dangerous cities in the USA. Add a "woke" DA and who knows....
  2. Very interesting to read. Thanks for posting it.
  3. I use a work bench I bought at Sam's Club. Metal frame and drawer, wood top that's 48"x24" and includes a peg board back, LED light and power strip. it's sturdy and heavy enough without any extra weight. I have a Dillion 650 and a Lyman All-American 8 mounted on it. They have it on sale through the 4th for $200. Seville Classics UltraHD Lighted Workbench - Sam's Club (samsclub.com)
  4. +1 for 1911alltheway. I have some of his work and it's excellent. Along with GT's knife that it was custom made to complement.
  5. "Happy to make a donation to a charity of your choosing." Outstanding offer that we should all consider when appropriate.
  6. Beat me to it. Shawn, if you're looking for a .22 LR revolver the Ruger Wrangler is a nice mid-point between a Heritage and the Single-Six. I have both (Heritage & Wrangler) and haven't had any issues with either in light use. But I prefer the Wrangler. The Heritage is OK for casual plinking, etc. but the Wrangler just "feels better". Both make birdshead models that are a little smaller if hand size is an issue. I've bought some nice used Browning Marks and Buckmarks at reasonable prices but might be hard to do today.
  7. Nice work. Thanks! I'll need to study it and the law more to fully understand the details.
  8. Here's a "work in progress" after the first clear coat from a few weeks ago. Has glass back in, headliner, dash, package tray, etc. now. Rewired getting much closer to finished and I'm getting anxious to go and get it!
  9. It's still in a friend's shop in Nebraska. I'll post a "work in progress" photo when I figure out how to do that. Definitely of the finished product. It's nothing rare or particularly unique. Just a 65 base coupe, 200 6cyl, Phoenician Yellow with a Palomino interior. But it's a fun car.
  10. Thanks. I'd checked flea-bay but missed that one. Nice condition without the prices many are asking.
  11. I need a 1965 Tennessee auto license plate to register my restored Mustang. No truck or specialty plates. The correct tag is white w/black lettering and is stamped "62" with a 1965 sticker (will consider 1964 also). The first numbers on the tag at that time were a county ID. I'd prefer a "68-####" plate for Cheatham County but know that's a long shot. Must be in good condition since the car is freshly updated. If you have anything available drop me a PM. Thanks!
  12. WOW! Outstanding to both artists (too beautiful to be "work", has to be ART)
  13. Great flags. I have one. I'm sure the shelves will be excellent also. Wish some were coming to the Nashville area.
  14. Tennessee 4-H also has an extensive youth shooting sports effort. Depending on each county's interests we offer programs in rifle (BB, air rifle, and rimfire), shotgun (skeet, trap and sporting clays), archery and hunting/outdoor skills. It's one of, if not the largest, 4-H activities in Tennessee. Participation is about equal to all the livestock programs combined. All disciplines offer the opportunity to compete at the state and national levels for those that qualify. The UT website is: Shooting Sports | Tennessee 4-H Youth Development 4-H also offers a "Target Smart" camp. As of now, it's scheduled to happen this summer: "4-H Target Smart Camp is a program of Tennessee 4-H Shooting Sports. It is for youth who are enrolled in grades five through nine as of the date of the camp. This resident camp is located at Clyde Austin 4-H Center in Greeneville, Tennessee. At camp youth learn appropriate skills to succeed in a variety of shooting sports and related areas such as archery, riflery, shotgun use, muzzleloading, and outdoor skills. Programs emphasize safety, correct form, and responsible use. Campers should receive prior training before attending this camp. Dates – July 11-15, 2022 Location – Clyde Austin 4-H Center, Greeneville Cost – TBD"
  15. Can't go wrong with Shaffer's. Just ask Grand Torino. Be sure to take a LARGE cooler and plenty of money. After you're stuffed with brisket the next problem is the butcher side and choosing from the many good looking cuts of meat.
  16. Welcome to a "free" state. I understand the 67 Mustang and "thousands of dollars later". I have a 65 coupe that's being restored and I'm getting poorer by the day. Sure going to be pretty when it's done though.
  17. Welcome from a fellow Cheatham County TGO member. Lots of good people here and a lot of good information.
  18. Interesting. Since it repeats consistently on two completely different guns maybe it's intentional in the design? It does tilt the center of the light's pattern up toward the POI, upper parts of the target, etc.
  19. I coach/train in the 4-H Shooting Sports program. This activity starts at the 4th grade (8-9 yr.) level. In the BB program we use Daisy 499B guns. They are a single shot, muzzle loaded BB gun made specifically for 5 meter competition and are very accurate We emphasize gun safety, along with skills. The program is 4-position, prone, sitting, kneeling, and offhand. It's a competition based precision shooting activity so some kids find it too "slow" but it's excellent for those that are focused. At the 4-H camps we use .22 lr single shot rifles on a highly supervised range. They can go to camp beginning the summer after the 4th grade. We stress gun safety, proper handling, etc. We get a lot of first time shooters that have never touched a gun. No effort at developing precision shooters. We just work to provide a positive experience with a firearm and hope that they can have success hitting the paper! It's a great experience guiding a hesitant kid through their first time firing a gun. We also hold a Shooting Sports specific camp that includes several shooting sports. We plan to resume both camp experiences next summer.
  20. That's always been true. Just more so today. What's in my safe is worth much more than the price of the safe. Always amazes me what we will spend on our toys but we will complain about the cost to store them securely.
  21. "Is it foolish of me to sit on and basically hoard these components or should a just go ahead and load 'em up and have shootable ammo ready to go?" Not in my opinion. Unless you're sure what you will need in the future there's a lot more flexibility by having components. You have adequate supplies of loaded ammo, components and equipment to reload what you need to replace. Sounds like a good plan to me.
  22. It's very hard to include every possible detail of a transaction in the sales ad especially if the item being sold is used. To me, "I'll take it" is a firm commitment to the seller that you will buy, period. I prefer to post a "PM Sent" in the thread to let others know and communicate privately with the seller. We've never failed to work out those details and complete the deal. Plus I've gotten to know some great TGO members in the process.
  23. I'm familiar with that area. Nice part of town. 4145 Beltline Road is a commercial retail strip. Several businesses share the address with different suite numbers. No residential there. Would be interesting to run the numbers on the license.
  24. My wife is so happy that you're not closer! Great package deal. GLWS
