  1. Wilson Combat/Chris Reeve large Starbenza or a XM-24
  2.   One of our salesmen had that.  He was unable to eat meat for several years, but eventually, it went away.  Now he is fine eating red meat.
  3.   I thought you used to say that you would never get married again. ;)
  4. It is not family. I am quite certain of that. I have an extremely small family, and all but one live far away. I think Mac was correct with what he said, drug addled kids. My mom would foolishly leave her van and at times, my truck, unlocked. My guess is someone happened to be traipsing through my woods one day and came up to my house. Oh my, the car doors are unlocked...and it all went downhill from there.

    If you have the money to spare then go for it.  I probably wouldn't do it myself, but I have to admit, they are pretty bad-ass. 
  6.   Yep, you got that right.  I still don't understand their behavior.  The van is old and a piece of crap.  Why bring it back?  Heck, my mom drives my truck most of the time.
  7. Several years ago I purchased a new house in an upscale part of Chattanooga.  My house is very private with the driveway going up about 500 feet on a steep hill into the woods. The house cannot be seen from the main road, which is one of the reasons I bought it.  The area is very low crime, and I thought the property layout was ideal for not having to worry about thieves and such.  The driveway and woods are natural deterrents.  I felt so secure that I had never thought of buying a safe or putting in an alarm system.  I had guns, knives, watches, etc... unsecured all over the house.  For almost three years nothing happened... or at least that is what I thought.   My 80 year old mother lives with me, and every now and then she would tell me that she thought someone had been in the house.  She would say stuff like she thought someone had taken a shower or slept in my bed.  Nothing was missing from the house so I would always dismiss it as old age and/or paranoia.  A few weeks ago on a Saturday she told me that someone had been in her van and there was a bunch of stuff in it that wasn't hers.  I dismissed her concern by rationalizing that it was more than likely my nephew's stuff he left in it when he borrowed it a month ago.  She didn't buy my reasoning and was adamant that someone had been in her van.  She wanted to call the police to have them fingerprint or do all the cool CSI stuff to figure out who was in it.  I told her that since nothing was missing that they wouldn't do anything at all, so there is no point in calling them.  I also asked her why nothing was stolen from the house (she would keep a backup house key in her van).  In the end, nothing was done.   A couple of days had went by and I had pretty much forgotten about things until I came home from work that Monday and found my sister and nephew at my house.  When I walked in the house I was informed that the police were on their way.  When I inquired as to why, I was told that it was because someone had not only been in my mom's van, but they had borrowed it by hot-wiring it and brought it back.  The stuff they left in the van was drug paraphernalia (gram-size baggies, drug residue, etc...).  When the police arrived, they investigated my mom's van.  It was loaded with drugs and drug residue.  Whoever borrowed it was using it as a party van or drug dealing.  They were grinding up Xanax pills.  Wow, just wow.  Nobody in our family is into anything like that.  Heck, we don't know anybody that is into stuff like that.  The entire situation was baffling, but it was also very scary.   We have no idea how often this happened, nor did we know if those people had been in my house.  There was a house key in the van, and my mom would swear that someone had been in the house from time to time.  The baffling thing is nothing has been stolen.  I chalked that up to sheer luck and good fortune.  The very next day I took off from work.   I met with security people to install a monitored security system for my house, changed all the locks on my door, installed motion detected flood lights, installed 4 sets of blinds in my kitchen, bought a 1000 lb. Liberty Colonial-50 safe, and commanded that no keys will be left outside the house.    This entire situation has been so confusing, but as I said earlier, I feel very fortunate that I did not have anything stolen.  The other thing I will take from this situation is not to be so dismissive of my mother's concerns.  She still may be a little paranoid at times, but in this situation, she was correct in her observations.    
  8.   LT 20" OBR   - Magpul PRS - Harris BRM-S on a LT-706 QD swivel mount - LT "Troy" battle sights - Aimpoint T2 on a LT107 mount - LT111 scope mount - Nightforce NXS 5-22x56   The scope wasn't exactly what I was wanting, but I recently did a great deal with Cabela's so I thought purchasing the scope from them was the right thing to do.  Unfortunately, they did not have what I was wanting, but I am most certain that I will enjoy the NF.
  9. I took several people to see it yesterday.  It was really good, but it was also incredibly intense and will piss you off.  It was the first time I have ever experienced clapping in a theater, and someone shouted out what could interpreted as a big "F*** You" to Hillary.
  10. I think I am going back to being parsimonius. :)
  11. Simple.  Develop some proficiency with a long rifle.
  12. Okay folks, that's it.  Everything is gone.  I am waiting on funds for the bcg and have one backup if that falls through.  Thanks for looking.
  13. Hey folks, I have for sale or trade 2 new "TGO" .223 CMT receiver sets and 1 AIM NiB .223 bolt carrier group. I was planning to build a couple of ARs, but never got around to it, and I really don't need them. Since we got these receiver sets at discount pricing, it is really only right for me to let the sets go for roughly what I have in them, which is $300 per set. Please do not purchase these if you are only planning on selling these for a higher value in the near future. The admins wouldn't take it too kindly for you doing such. Also, I will not break apart the sets and the trade value will be higher than the sell value. The bolt carrier group is $85. Since these are inexpensive items, I will meet in Chattanooga only, but I will ship them to you via UPS Ground at your expense, ~ $10. I can take cash, Paypal - gift, and money orders. Items that I am looking for in trade --- Glock 43, Aimpoint micro T-1 2 MOA (no mount unless you have a Larue Tactical LT724 lever mount). They must be in fantastic (almost new) shape - no beaters as I will do that. Thanks for looking
  14. Nice. A G43 is in my near future as well.
  15. Thank you.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  This year is a little more special to me than previous years because of having an absolutely wonderful woman by my side.  Those are very hard to find, and that is just one of the many things I am very thankful for. 
  16. I picked up this... A LT OBR. I am a little excited about this one. Now I have to buy a bunch of goodies for it.
  17. I think it is pretty cool that someone is making a living doing something they really enjoy.  As far as $800 for a knife, that is nothing in the custom knife world where prices can easily exceed $2k and be in incredibly high demand for certain makers.
  18. That my friend is bad a$$.  The grind looks like a cross between a skinner grind and the grind on my Fischer Archangel which equals 100% pure awesomeness.  You are definitely getting better.
  19. Thanks. I quit smoking 12 years ago, but it was replaced with smokeless tobacco, which is what I gave up in March last year.
  20. I have now been tobacco-free for 1 year. I had used tobacco products for the last 25 years, and I went cold turkey March 1, 2014. I think I have the addiction beat now. :-)
  21. It is hard to beat a good wharnie.  That is nice.
  22. Those are some really nice blades Cap.
