  1. I want a lever action rifle, kind of old-school cow boy cool. I just don’t know what caliber I should go with. I don’t have plans hunt with it, but it could happen one day. And it does not need to look like a safe queen. Maybe more like I won it in a game of poker while out on the trail running the cattle. what sayith the wisdom of the lords of the TGO?
  2. Please don't tell me to ditch it and get a Remington 1100. I have a few of those and enjoy them as fine guns. I bought the Hatfield SAS Semi-Automatic .410 (Remington 1100 knockoff) realizing it was a budget gun. According to the person I bought it from, it had exactly 6 shells ran through it. The person admitted that it would cycle 3" game loads, but had problems cycling the 2 1/2" target loads. I have fired this gun several times and have found that it will cycle my reloaded 2 1/2" shells, but is unreliable in cycling factory loaded Winchester AA 2 1/2" MAX Dr. Eq. 1/2 ounce #9 shot Target Loads. Often times, it will cycle the first two shells and will fail to put the third shell in the chamber and the bolt into battery. Just for information... the gun is still quite tight and the recoil spring is quite heavy. Possibly, this gun will cycle like a Remington 1100 after two or three boxes of shells have been ran through it. What I'm hoping to find out here, is information from other Hatfield SA .410 owners as to their experiences with this make and model gun, specifically in the .410 version. I have watched some U-tube videos on this gun and the other larger gauges don't seem to have this problem. I'm trying to find out from real Hatfield SA .410 owners if this gun will eventually loosen up and cycle reliably, or if it's a "no go" gun. Thanks in advance for any information that is willingly shared.
  3. Brothers n Sisters... A potential " New Mania " has struck me... The " RedDot on a Pistola Mania "..! Do yall think the mania is, indeed, just somethin to play with or if it is, indeed, a viable home and vehicle defense tool..? Im thinkin a full size pistola... Glock, Xd, Smith, IWI... What's the best way ta do this..? Milled slide or " Optics Ready "...? Whaddya think about the tiny RMRs...? Ones ya like... Them " tall iron sights... Which ones ya like...? A Enlighten me please... Thank all y'all in advance... " J Thaddius " leroy... " Struck by the red dot mania "...!
  4. Hey there, I was browsing armslist and I came across this ammo posted for sale in my area. I haven't heard much about this ammo but it seems like the ad is saying that this is hard to come by. Has anyone used this ammo in the past? is it worth the hype or is it more of a collectors item? It is hard to find any good information on this online, any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks! Link to armslist posting: https://www.armslist.com/posts/13408981/knoxville-tennessee-ammo-for-sale-trade--556-ammo---mk255-
  5. I am looking for someone to thread a rifle barrel and do other work. Any suggestions for someone in the Tri-cities area? Thanks
  6. It's an older European surplus gun im sure, so it's probably a spring issue, but the hammer doesn't stay back after firing a shot.
  7. The pellets are falling straight through my Sheridan blue streak pellet gun. Any idea why or how to fix it?
  8. Am thinkin about red dotting one of my glock pistolas... Gonna use a Holosun 507 plus tall irons... Who do ya recommend to do the machining..? Turn around time... Any other observations...? Thanks in advance... leroy.
  9. I am looking at getting a 22LR pistol to introduce / teach my daughter about handguns (also for plinking as ammo is too expensive at the moment). My local FFL has a used Sig Mosquito Sport for sale. I like the feel holding it and I like Sig pistols. Does anyone out there have experience with this particular handgun? Also, what are thoughts on it's retail value? Thanks, Briggs. Sig Sauer Mosquito Sport 22LR Thoughts
  10. I need some opinions on some items i want to buy without end up wasting money. I need a new holster for my Glock G45 9mm to wear outside the waistline. Maybe something that locks over the back of the slide while in the holster. Any manufacturers i should consider? I need a rifle case for my AR. It has a 16" barrel and 32" total in length. Id like to have enough space for the rifle a side arm and a couole of mags. Ive seen plano, pelican, savior nanuk and case club on amazon. Looking for something sturdy but not something i need to spend a arm and a leg on. Finally im looking to buy a "tactical" magazine ammo box to store my 5.56 mags in maybe 9mm as well. Cant seem to find a quality one, prefer metal instead of plastic. Thanks in advance.
  11. You see all sort of crazy prices on gun boards. So really what is 9mm brass cased reloadable selling for on secondary market: $30.00, $40.00 $50.00 a box?,
  12. I just picked up my first (well, second, since I already bought the .22 LR training analog) “budget AR-15”; a Smith and Wesson M&P15 Sport II with the Crimson Trace CTS-103 on it. I don’t want to go crazy with it, but adding a weapon light a bit closer to the muzzle, gaining a little real estate on the hand guard and having some mounting options would be nice, but that stock hand guard... I was told that if I want to keep it “budget” and stay off the gunsmith’s bench, I would need to work around the stock gas block with the integrated rail, but that options were out there. This is not a brand new model, so I’m hoping someone might have a recommendation for a good hand guard upgrade on this one? Thanks in advance!! Ray

    Kind of obsure question but I figure someone might know the answer. I have a 1962 K38 Smith and Wesson with original wood grips. I want to replace the grips with Crimson Trace laser grips, either LC-306 or LG-207. I was wondering if Smith made changes to the screw placement that would allow or make this impossible? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  15. So, I’m getting (re)acquainted with firearms a bit late in life; so I want to push forward with the greatest degree of efficiency I can. One training aid that has caught my attention is the Mantis X. Yes, there are plenty of reviews and videos out there, but most seem to be from people selling the product or reviewers who may or may not have received the product free or hold a possible bias. Upon review, I really only see one post on the subject here from, I think, 2018? I’m curious what real world experience some of you may have with this (or similar?) product over time? Have you seen tangible improvement from using the device? Does Mantis X noticeably improve your dry fire sessions? Has there been any value during professional training sessions in conjunction with Mantis X? What are the most beneficial things vs. what functions seem to be a waste of time with Mantis X?E2845304-D495-4A50-9BA6-1F9BF9F72B51.webp Can / should Mantis X be used while taking video of your target, since it doesn’t “know what you are aiming at”? I thank you for your time and experience! Also, if anyone knows a location in the Franklin / Nashville area that can do a demo, I’d be interested in checking this out.
  16. Hi guys. Just wanted to ask a couple of questions tonight. I was at a lgs in Old Hickory just a bit ago, picking up a Taurus pistol. Yeah...laugh all you want. Anyway, got to looking at a couple of rifles and found myself drawn to particular one. A T/C Compass. I think that was the name. Not a big fan of bolt action rifles, nothing against them. Just never gave them much thought. But I like the way it felt. Lop was perfect for me. Price was pretty great also...sub 300. So...what you think, is this a good deal? Good first bolt action? Would be a new caliber for me as well...6.5 Creedmore. Now be kind. I'm seriously thinking about this. I really can't say why. It just calls out. Oh...btw. The Taurus was a Model 608 38/357 ported revolver. LOL! Yep! Another in the Taurus Stable!
  17. Trying to decide which one. I have done quite a bit of "research" and found a lot of contradictory information and opinions. Any of you have any first hand experience/input? The Canik is $120 less.
  18. Good morning guys. Got another email this morning from Lone Wolf Survivalist. I have a question for you about this product. The G96 Synthetic CLP. Lots of claims on it, both written and verbal from the site. Sounds like the latest wonder product. And yes I'm curious about it. Anyone ever use it? I have CLP, but if I'm reading this correctly, this product is not from the producers of CLP, just a copy, synthetic version. Any comments on this? Thanks for looking.
  19. I have a Rem 1187 Super Mag, after shooting several 3 1/2 “ rounds it will not go into battery. The barrel seems to slide backwards and will not let the bolt go back into position. After this happens it is impossible to pull the barrrel out while taking it apart. I have to work the action slamming the bolt like it’s pushing the barrel back into place. Has anyone ever saw this or know a fix for it? Thanks!
  20. Looking for referals. Need a good gunsmith to true a Rem 700 action.
  21. Purchased the software about a year ago. Then realized ‘garbage in=garbage out’ so I then purchased a Pro Chrono for velocity measurements. I would like to spend some time with someone who is experienced with the software to learn “tip,tricks and traps” to get me over the initial hump of learning how to use Quickload. I’m a little overwhelmed with what the software can do and I am over analyzing everything. “Analysis Paralysis” I’ve printed out the Quickload manual and read through it several times. I do have many years of reloading behind my belt and recently got back into it after divorce, college, raising family and other life events that shifted my priorities. Could some kind soul allow me to spend an afternoon with them so I can pick their brains and experience? Willing to travel an hour or so and provide pizza and refreshments for your time.
  22. I need help? My husband has want to take the handgun carry class and get a small concealed weapon for some time now and I have been his detourant... I know shame. He's a sportsman hunting fishing etc. But nothing small... I want to change that for Christmas! But I have no idea what to get or ask for or if I'm being ripped off? Can someone please help?
  23. Hello guys, I know this gun (H&K usp .357 sig) is hard to find but I'm sure someone is selling one somewhere. Please is anyone is selling one or if you know somewhere I can go to find one I would love some advice. I was reading that a member named Creepy was selling his a couple yrs back I wonder if he ever got rid of it? Again some help would be greatly appreciated thanks guys!!
  24. Just to be crystal clear up front, I'm specifically NOT trying to sell any guns here, trying to get advice on how to proceed. My wife's uncle passed away, and his wife legally passed his gun collection down to us. We are keeping what we want, and are attempting to sell the rest. I sold some of them to our local shop, but the price that they're offering on two specific items is way too low - that's what they're able to offer, specifically based on their current inventory (a glut of these specific types of handguns). Just for reference, what they're offering is around 45% of the price I've seen these specific guns sell for privately. I understand they need to make money (and don't begrudge them that at all), but for the others they purchased from me, they gave me around 70% - 75% of what they're going to sell them for. With the show coming up this weekend, I figured I'd go up and try to sell them - as near as I can tell, it would be pretty safe (from a legal perspective) for me as a seller; assuming the prospective buyer has a current TN carry permit, the state of TN has done a legal background check, and I can be assured as a seller that to the best of my knowledge (to meet the state's requirements for a private sale) the buyer is legally allowed (by the state) to purchase, correct? Next question: according to a 2015 story, RK Gun Shows (whom the upcoming show is put on by) is no longer allowing private sales at their shows without a background check. Does the buyer having a current TN carry permit meet that requirement? If this doesn't meet that requirement, is there a way to have the check done at the show prior to the sale? To be perfectly honest, I'm not interested in meeting up with someone in the parking lot just to avoid running afoul of RK Show's rule. I'd much rather do it safely (from both a personal and legal perspective) and keep it all above board. As a condition of the sale, I will be capturing the individual's personal information, including their HCP number / DL number (since they're the same thing in TN). For my (legal) peace of mind, I will not be selling to someone who doesn't have a permit, and I would have serious issues selling to someone who would have an issue with providing me that documentation for a private sale. I just want to handle this all correctly, legally, and above-board - please let me know if I can clarify anything, I apologize for the length of this post - I just wanted to be as clear and specific as possible!
