  1. I have a Gen 2 SUB-2000 and am very pleased with it. Very accurate and fun to shoot especially with 33rd Glock mags. Wife says it looks like a toy but it makes a good and serious truck gun.

    SCHOOL ME ON 9MM CARBINES

    I have a KelTek sub2000 gen 2 that I like very much. Accurate and light weight. Mine is the Glock version and will use a 33rnd mag. It has top and bottom rails standard and I added Magpul side rails. Also added a Magpul forward hand grip (slanted type) and a sling. It looks mean and still folds. Kinda hard to not to send a bookoo of lead downrange with it.

    My job in a nutshell.

    I'm with an earlier poster who said this kind of work is not missed! I worked on computers and computer systems for ages! Octal mainframes, DOS PC's, and Windows 3.0 thru Windows 7. Got burned out fixing other peoples problems and retired just after Windows 8 came out. I will stay with 7 and still have a MAC Book running XP. I maintain my own of course but find myself enjoying my guns, my music (drums), fixing bicycles, boating and fishing these days!

    keyless entry car question

    Had the same problem on a 2003 GMC. Was the receiver module in the truck. Was repaired on warranty so don't know the cost.
  7. Didn't go anywhere today so I wasn't held up by this carnival parade. I retired from Pellissippi State about 1 year ago. Had I still been there I would probably have gotten fired for standing with the protestors. :cool: :up:
  8. This is a link to the votes cast by Senator.       http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=113&session=1&vote=00091
  9. Yes. Cars and trucks can be registered jointly. Ours are. Boats cannot be registered with more than one name.
  10. I received a letter from Col. North today on behalf of the NRA-PVF. Yes, it was a request for donations. But I firmly believe we need to support this organization as much as we can......at least for the next few weeks. These guys will be our first line of defense. I can't afford much but I have been sending $50 a month so far this year. The funds I would normally spend on ammo, if I could find it, I am donating to the cause. It may be like playing the lottery but I think the jackpot would be worth the investment.
  11. 10-Ring - "Again, I'm not interested in joining a militia I just want to know what the organizations that are out there stand for before I stand beside them to fight for my rights."   Try 16thFF TnState Malitia search. Nice website. 
  12. Letter sent. Contents included below. Feel free to use.   Dear Senator  XXXXXXXXX Due to recent events in the aftermath of the horrific shooting in Newtown, Ct, I feel I must write to vigorously defend my rights. I am one of tens of millions of law-abiding firearm owners in the United States, and I feel that my rights are now under attack from the media and politicians alike. The knee-jerk reaction from many has been to call for more gun control. To ban certain types of firearms. This is misguided and dangerous. What the government should be focusing on is how to help families with individuals that have mental heath issues and keeping criminals and repeat offenders off of the street. For every Adam Lanzaa, or Jared Loughner, there are tens of millions of firearm owners who are smart and use firearms in a responsible manner. The FBI’s own crime statistics show that violent crime has been steadily decreasing for the past 40 years and violent gun-related crimes have also been steadily decreasing. More crimes are committed with knives or other means than guns. So do we now also need to ban knives and baseball bats? The 1994 Clinton AWB did little to nothing to curb or stop mass shootings. The Columbine incident is a perfect example. A criminal does not care about laws and where they have a willingness to do harm; they will find a way, be it with a firearm or other means. Indeed, this has been a failure for criminal and mental health systems across the United States. Senator Dianne Feinstein’s newly proposed 2013 AWB is nothing short of an all out attack on liberty, freedom, and our God-given Constitutional rights. If Congress adopts this legislation, the federal government would be specifically targeting millions of law-abiding gun owners who have never broken any laws. This is wrong. As one of those law-abiding gun owners, we would be subjected to erroneous and invasive imperious laws that the criminals of society would simply ignore. Again, this is wrong. It would simply be a very bad piece of legislation that would have legal ramifications for decades. The state of Connecticut already has a sort of AWB in place, and it did not stop this crime. If you enact another 100 gun laws it will not stop gun crime. Adam Lanzaa tried to purchase a firearm and was turned down. The system did what it was supposed to. I am a loving husband and father. I am also an honorably discharged veteran of the United States Air Force. I am a patriot and I love my country. Senator Feinstein’s proposal has nothing to do with a solution to the terrible events in Newtown, or Colorado, or Arizona, and has everything to do with the ultimate attempt by the government to control and subvert the population. We, the voting public and lawful gun owners would see this as Congress neglecting its duty to uphold the Constitution. It would be criminal and I will not comply. I cannot have the luxury of a private security detail to protect myself and my family like so many in government do. Lastly, it is utterly laughable for the President, Attorney General and anyone in Congress to talk about more gun control, when dubious operations like “Fast & Furious” are perpetrated by the federal government and wind up killing innocent people.   Sincerely, XXXXXXXXXXXXX
  13. Agree. IMHO ar, the polls were probably responsible for so many Romney supporters staying home thinking.........according to the polls Romney had it in the bag.
