    I love the old car chase movies. Bullet was good, Dirty Harry Crazy Mary was a great movie, Vanishing Point was another good one, and then can't forget the Blues Brothers even though it was funny, it had some great car chases.

    Some of the newer movies with Vin Diesel and that Black Charger were good also. Love that wheel stand he did in one of them. Dodge Chargers have been used in quit a few old Hollywood car chase movies.

    And then there was the the miracle Charger in Dukes of Hazard. I read that they had to have 5 old Chargers and hundreds of spare parts for them to keep making the program. At one point they were advertising for any old junk Dodge chargers people wanted to sell they would buy them. They said they had 1 good one for the car chases on the roads and rebuilds that they had repaired after they made those jumps because in most cases the entire front suspension had to be rebuilt and fenders and hoods straightened so they could use them again.

    During the filming of Dukes of Hazard they went through a couple hundred cars between destroying them in stunts and keeping spares. A guy where I live owns one of the original screen used General Lee "hero cars".  (One of the versions kept in prestine condition) The paint is pretty oxidized, but the body's perfect and it runs. I'd probably give my right arm to have it.

  2. Did they deserve to die? No. Were they temping fate & asking for trouble? Yes. These were grown adults that were posting on social media to get attention. Well, they got it! They wanted to believe the world's a marshmallow, sugarplum place to live & it's clearly not. If you plan to go to one of the most dangerous places in the world & try to pretend it's a park, then bad things are likely to follow. It's not like much of the Middle East is keeping their hatred for the Western world a secret. Play stupid games; win stupid prizes.

  3. I took my family to Myrtle Beach a couple years ago. We have a news app on our TV that allows us to watch the "local" news anywhere in the country so I watched the Myrtle Beach local news channel every day for a couple weeks before our vacation. One thing that was mentioned several nights on the news was how many guns were being stolen from cars in hotel parking lots at Myrtle Beach. Some were break-ins & some cars were actually left unlocked. I took two handguns with me on that trip. Neither was ever left unattended in our van.

  4. I haven't been able to check out the compact version, but my dad picked up a brand new Shield 2.0 sub compact with Crimson Trace laser at Smoky Mountain Guns & Ammo (Smoky Mtn. Knife Works) yesterday for $299. We called this evening & they said they have 174 left in stock at that price so a friend & I are heading over to Sevierville in the morning so he can buy one. After feeling the grip & trigger of the one my dad got, I may be bringing one home too.

  5. We have several hundred old coins ranging from the mid 1800's to mid 1900's & online values are all over the board & nobody locally does appraisals. Can anyone suggest a good place to take them? We only live about 1 1/2 hrs from Knoxville if that helps. Now way we're going to trust shipping them anywhere. None of them are gold so they're not highly valuable, but I'd like to know approx. value before we sell them.

  6. I'm a big fan of both H&K & SIG, but if you're going to consider carry at all, I would highly suggest looking at a SIG P229 over the MK25 or a USP Compact over the full size. If just want a range toy then I suggest trying them out if possible & choose the one that feels best. All of these are exceptional quality.

  7. Donate her gun to keep children safe. Good thing, too. After all, it's not like there's a metal object you can purchase to lock it in to keep children "safe"! Obviously didn't get where she is by using her brains. I'd be willing to bet she never shot it & probably doesn't even know how to load it. :dunno:

    Soooooo, what you got ?

    It's a little out of the norm. It's a Swiss Absinthe, bottled in 2005. It's an authentic Suisse La Bleue "Clandestine" & I've had it since 2006. This is it... https://www.alandia.de/absinthe-la-bleue-clandestine.html Only 1,000 bottles were produced each of the first two years, but the 2005 batch isn't numbered like the 2004 1st batch.

    Here's a photo of the actual bottle...

  9. Here are some items I'm giving away as a lot. This will be a fun package for someone. Just send me a PM along with your mailing info & it's yours.

  10. I could be wrong, but I'm going to venture a guess that the striker spring or recoil spring may have to be upgraded to a slightly heavier weight. That's a common issue when you get a pistol with a wonderful light trigger & easy to rack slide. Sometimes it sacrifices a certain amount of reliability (light strikes or not going into battery). It's a balance of give & take. Either way, it's an intriguing pistol & I hope they work out the bugs quickly.
