  4. What a voice. The raspiness adds charisma.
  5. I'm not sure, but I think liking this music might give away my age. She makes me feel young again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hHZnvjCbVw
  6. Expand your horizons. Maybe you already have, but if not, have a listen. Oh, and bonus points if you can understand what they are saying. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4xZUr0BEfE I find this weirdly enthralling.

    the future

    There is no doubt in my mind that most gun owners would not voluntarily turn in their firearms, but that would not stop confiscation. Registration is the first step and the ATF already has hundreds of millions of files on firearm purchases, and although not an official "registry", it is certainly a first step. Confiscation will be piecemeal at first (New York state is currently doing just that) and in the end only the true outlaws will be armed. The loss of our rights as citizens has accelerated with each passing year and shows no signs of slowing down. It is amazing to think of all who gave their lives for the freedoms we have and to think that perhaps many more shall perish in the fight to keep those rights. The truly sad thing is that many feel that surrendering those rights will bring about a "safe and secure" existence. It happened during the Civil War when family members took opposing sides. Some are easily brainwashed and some are just fools. The question is: Which ones are the fools? We'll know if registration leads to confiscation which leads to genocide, but by then it will be too late. Silence those who do not think like you seems to be the mantra of the left. It seems everything has a beginning and an end, and I just hope this isn't the beginning of the end.

    Read the article below. I think we will be like the New Zealanders. https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/06/new_zealands_voluntary_gun_turnin_reels_in_a_whopping__530_guns.html

    the future

    Tennessee passed legislation after Sandy Hook that said they would not comply with ANY federal confiscations or bans. Further if I understand that legislation correctly they would also not enforce as in state and local law enforcement would go against any attempts at federal enforcement of such. The legislation you speak of, if passed, may well precipitate the beginning of a second civil war in this country. Feds are outnumbered, how many soldiers are hard core enough for Uncle Sam to turn on their families. Scary stuff. With all that being said I have been giving serious consideration to this very topic and hope it would never come to it.

    the future

    Should maybe be in with political posts, but not much activity there (or here). I'm not sure how many are aware of the current gun control push. There are two pieces of legislation that have passed the U.S. House of Representatives and are now before the Senate, H.R. 8 and H.R. 112. Personally, I do not believe that the Senate will pass these bills, and if they do, the White House has indicated a veto would occur. These two legislative actions are a sign of what is to come should the liberal, progressive left gain control of the Senate and White House in 2020. Unfortunately, the future does not look promising for gun owners as our government continues its efforts to control the people and the liberal majority is too blind to see it (or maybe they want to be controlled). I've said it before and I'll say it again: If you are a gun owner and not a member of the NRA (or NAGR or both) do not complain when the confiscation begins. We'll see how many have their cold, dead fingers pried off their firearms.
  12. The 180 grain Nosler Partition will work great.
  13. Last week
  14. Digging up bones....... Seems to be a few newb's doing this, not so sure the motives of the one in this thread. But gonna guess it will turn out to be another spammer.
  15. ditto! I usually check the date out and somehow missed it on this one! still stand by my decision though 😎
  16. And I just realized this post is 11 yrs old lol
  17. Yes the ones at Lowe’s or Home Depot are cheaper made not like the ones from the dealership. Decks are lighter too
  18. I tried the 308 Remington 5r 10th anniversary and it was pretty accurate
  19. Catrina's is a 9. It does great with the Hornady critical defense rds. Bought several boxes of the Israeli stuff(dicut jhp) and it also is pretty impressive.
  20. Gun shop owner recommended against the crimson trace because they become too dependent upon the laser Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. My wife has had her concealed carry license for a couple years but just recently decided to carry because she is a salon business owner and has had some sketchy things going on with random cars in her parking lot etc.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Did not ever put a laser on it. She does just fine with the factory sights. She is not traveling for her work anymore either, so she does not pack it with her anymore. I have not first hand seen the new shields. Would not mind having something smaller to tote around with me when I am checking traps in the winter.
  23. An oooooooooold thread brought back....... Over 10 years old. Sure Dan(the op) has figured out what works for his gun by now. lol If I were loading a deer round for 30 caliber in 06 or .308 it would be a 178 grain eld-x. Been very happy with the hornady eld-x bullets I have loaded so far for my .308. Considered an 06 and if I get one will also try and likely use the eld-x. I tried sierra game kings from a .308 into milk jugs and for close range was not happy with the way they came apart. Best as I recall I posted a thread here with the results. Had great accuracy on paper cloverleafing groups, but think at over 100 yards they only penetrated into the 2nd or 3rd jug and fragmented terribly. They may do better at longer distances, but since I have shots often in bowrange I was hesitant to try them on deer. With the eld-x, have dropped 2 deer dead in their tracks.
  24. Was a pretty busy weekend here. Wife and kids took off Friday to middle Tn to church camp. Stayed home and took care of yard work, animals, and other stuff around the house Friday afternoon. After tilling and doing some weeding in the garden Saturday morning took off and met the family just in time to catch the Saturday sermon. Stayed until about 4:30, had to come back home to take care of our dogs. Got up this morning and got on the tractor and took care of some other stuff around the yard
  25. Also meant to ask, did you ever end up putting the crimson trace on? Guy at our local shop recommended against it, he said people put it on and rely on it too much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  26. I know this is an old post but my wife just bought a little M&P Bodyguard a couple weeks ago, nice little .380 gun. she's not done a ton of shooting but she picked up on it and liked shooting this little gun. have you seen the new shields William? Looks like they've made a couple small changes, they have the Shield 380 EZ now, not sure if they've always sold a 380 in the shield model?
