  1. Would you like to shoot better? Want to hear some of our founding history? Ever wondered why Paul Revere was galloping through the countryside late that fateful night? Come to a Project Appleseed class! Learn the techniques of rifle marksmanship & be inspired by stories from the events of April 1775. The next Appleseed is this weekend at the Stones River TWRA range in Antioch. Come on out & join us! Head to http://appleseedinfo.org & sign up. There's plenty of info there, or feel free to ask me any questions.
  2. If you've been wanting to attend a Project Appleseed event, we've got one coming up! It'll be July 14th & 15th at the Stones River range in Antioch. We have a private shooting bay & air-conditioned classroom all to ourselves. If you haven't heard about it, Project Appleseed is a neat combination of a traditional rifle marksmanship class with presentations about early American history, specifically the first day of the Revolutionary War. It's family-friendly and a lot of fun. I've been to several of them, and have started volunteering my time as an instructor. It's a good pr
  3. If you're interested in coming out to a Project Appleseed event, we've still got a few spots open for next weekend's event in Antioch. That weekend's class is unique in that it's a Friday/Saturday event, rather than the usual Saturday/Sunday. This would be good for those of you who otherwise have Sunday obligations. June 9 & 10 are the dates. In July we have another Appleseed in Antioch, and it's almost sold out. Those dates are Saturday & Sunday, July 1 & 2. If you want to come, sign up quick! Here's the website for more info & registration: http://appleseedinfo.org.
  4. To answer your question about zeroing at 100 vs. 200 yards, that won't buy you extra elevation adjustment (unless the zero-stop shims on your scope are artificially limiting the range of adjustability; I'm not familiar with the details on that particular model). You'll still hit the limit of adjustability at the same point. If you need more elevation adjustment than your scope will allow, then you'll need to change the scope mounting base to a higher or lower angle so that the scope gets back into its range of adjustment. The distance that you zero at is mostly just a nice reference
  5. For those in the Nashville area who have been interested in going to a Project Appleseed class, there are two classes coming up at the Stones River TWRA range in Antioch. One is Friday & Saturday, June 9th & 10th. The other is Saturday & Sunday, July 1st & 2nd. If you haven't heard about it, Project Appleseed is a neat combination of traditional rifle marksmanship class, combined with stories of early American history, specifically the first days of the Revolutionary War. It's family-friendly, and a lot of fun. I've been to two of them, and recently started volunteering my
  6.   There's the Golden Corral on Old Hickory Blvd & I-40 in Hermitage. The TFA holds their meetings there, so it's a known gun-friendly place.   I'm skinny though; buffets don't work in my favor. :bored:   If you want to go larger-scale... Since the warmer months are upon us, we could find a private (or private-ish) outdoor range, a grill, and some meat.  :cool:   A few years ago, we had a TGO BBQ picnic / shoot at Charlie Haffner's place (the private range up top) one weekend. It had a pretty good turn-out. Maybe there's enough demand to do something like
  7. Today was an inaugural day for me: Several years after getting my permit, I finally bought my first handgun! Since the seller was kind enough to include a nice holster, I decided to do the "Wally Walk", too. :D I bought some ammo to commemorate the occasion. For the moment, I'm mostly wearing it around the house & carrying it unloaded until I get comfortable with handling it in a safe manner. Thanks again to forum member Sonny for a great purchase, and a nice piece, too!
  8.   LOL. No worries. We need a <sarcasm> font.  :)
  9.   If it passes, the permit will only be *necessary* for concealed carry. Open carry will not require a permit (beyond the normal requirements of being legally allowed to posses a firearm, etc...)
  10. Yep. This is changing by the hour, as different people try to throw something new in the way. It needs our help, but it's not dead.   This is the latest update from the TFA, issued this morning:   -------- Original Message -------- Subject: Tenn. Firearms Assoc.: UPDATE on Open Carry - Will government lie?

  12. So the operative phrase is... LIGHT UP THE PHONE LINES! This is copied straight from the TFA: URGENT ACTION NEEDED - Open Carry in TN on the verge of passing! (anti-gun buddies Charles Sargent and Gov Bill Haslam plotting to take away your rights as seen here) This morning Senator Mae Beavers' bill to allow open carry in Tennessee just passed the state Senate in an unexpected vote!!! The bill, if passed in the House, would allow anyone in Tennessee who is legal to possess a gun to be able to open carry a handgun on their person without a permit, as long as it is not concealed.
  13.   That's wonderful! Look at that spread, too.
  14. Very nice! I'm partial to good ol' wood myself.   A lever action rifle of some flavor is on my wish-list of stuff to have in the stable. I don't know yet what caliber I'd get, though.
