   Nashville posted on Main Page The Lobby  Windows 7...
Bought a new desktop for home a while back with Windows 7, L-Dot is very slow to load.
Was forced to upgrade to Windows 7 at work two days ago...same thing, very slow to load.
What is the fix????
Why does Windows 7 hate L-dot and what

Today I've had to log on to the Connection

All my other AOL favorites work fine.

   Nashville posted on Main Page The Lobby  Fun Day at the range today.
Meet two friends from work and had 2 hours of shooting.
Friend A had a Kimber 1911.
Friend B had a Glock in 40cal and a Colt 1911 in .22cal (made by Walther? )
I had my Springfield XD40, Savage 30-06 bolt action and 1863 .58cal muzzle loader.
We all shot them all and had a good day.

What I learned....
Everyone at a range will shoot a 150 year old gun given the chance.
Both my friends jumped at the chance to shoot a 30-06 with a scope.
I still don't like the grip on a Glock, a Kimber 1911 is over rated.

   Nashville posted on Main Page The Lobby  Fun with the guns.
Went 'to the lake' last week and was able to fire off some rounds.
200 rounds went through the Springfield XD40.
20 rounds went through the Savage 110 30-06.
10 rounds went through the 1863 .58cal muzzle loader.

The XD40 is just fun to shoot. My 17 year old daughter fired off a few ( too much gun for her ) but she liked it : )

20 rounds of 30-06 is all my shoulder can handle!

The 1863 .58cal is my fav to shoot...royal pain to clean.

   Nashville posted on The Range 2nd Amendment  I think the Zimmerman case was our governments try at killing the 2nd amendment.
They have failed in their attempts to keep us from buying guns. This was an attempt to keep us from using them for self defense.

   Nashville posted on The Range 2nd Amendment  Took 5 weeks and and about $250, today in my mailbox was my Handgun Carry Permit.
I did the first day ritual. XD40 in a CrossBreed SuperTuk holster, and a trip to Wal-Mart. Spent an hour in the store and had no worries. I have had the gun 'on me' at home for a week and wife and daughter have not noticed.
One of every 16 people in Tennessee have a carry permit, proud to be one of them.

   Nashville posted on Main Page The Lobby  Cost of a carry permit.

I posted this question on the Springfield XD Talk site.

The average of 28 States I have info for is about $150.

Texas ( for all the crap we have to read how great it is ) is the high end winner at $330 for a CCW permit.
Arizona and Wyoming are the low end at ZERO $ for a permit.

   Ole buzzard  And what does the Second Amendment say? "...shall not be infringed"?

Yeah! RIGHT!!!!

   Gerty  I agree with Mr. Buzz---there should be no charge other than that for the clerical work required.

   ALynnMcW  The state fee is $140. The cost of the 10 hour training class to complete the application is variable across the state. Haven't seen anything higher in Harris County than $100. So $240 max plus your ammo and gun rental if you don't have one. A little pricey but classes are booked up for weeks in advance and there is a backlog at the state getting the apps processed. Of course the thugs don't bother.

   Nashville posted on The Range 2nd Amendment  Started my carry permit journey today.
I took the 'class' at my local range. Nashville Armory, $95.
I then took my paperwork to a State Safety Office, filled out more paperwork and gave them $115.
I get fingerprinted on Thursday.
I will let you Tennessee L-Dotters know how long it all takes to actually get your permit.
The test was 30 true/false and mulitiple choice questions, I think most people would pass without 4 hours of class. Then 50 practice rounds on the range, followed by 50 to qualify. I think the target was at 3,5 and 7 yards. Everyone ( 24 people ) passed, including about 6 that had never fired a handgun before.

   Nashville  FYI, plan on $1000++ to carry a gun.
$700++ for the handgun.
$210 for permit.
$90 goes for ammo and a really cheap holster.
Starting from no gun....budget $2000 for this journey, you need to put many dollars of ammo 'downrange' when you first buy a gun.

   Ole buzzard  How's that "shall not be infringed" part working out for you?

Good grief!!

At least here in Georgia, our county sheriff provided the training, free, no written test, permit was $30 for the probate court, and $51.50 for the fingerprints.

   Nashville posted on The Range 2nd Amendment  40SW and 9mm are not to be found here in Nashville
I have been to 3 Wally Worlds and one big 'outdoor' place.
Nothing but empty shelves. The Wally World near me had ONE
box of 25 22cal LR and ONE box of 16ga shotgun, that was all!
Obama is the best ammo salesman ever.

   Nashville  I have a Springfield XD40 and I'm thinking about a 9mm
conversion barrel for it, that way I can shoot whatever I can find!

   Liberal like Jefferson  When I bought my first rifle and handguns after the 2008 election, I woke up to the problem or scarce ammunition as well. I waited for supplies to basically return to normal after a couple years, then, over a period a few months, bought 8,000 rounds of ammunition. I standardized on 9mm for our handguns - all my handguns are chambered in 9mm. I buy 7.62x39mm (Russian short ) for the rifle.

I buy in bulk - 1000 round bricks from a reputable online dealer. Now, I'm just sitting out this latest round of shortages. I learned in 2008 I can't rely on the big retailers or gun stores to have what I need when I need it. Your gun without ammunition is a paperweight.

   Liberal like Jefferson  I recall CTD gouging back in '08. I don't use them any more. www.ammoman.com Eric is the best. Free shipping direct to your door - if legal. No state tax. Great service (although he's slammed like everyone else these days ). Here where I live, they make me show my ID to the delivery person and sign at the door for my Wine-of-the-Month club selections. They'll just leave a brick of ammo on my doorstep.

   Nashville  Jefferson, I was @ CTD last night and you are correct, they were selling 40SW for over $1 per round. When the dust settles I will stock up, have 800 rounds and feel like I'm just getting started. Thinking about a Cal-Tec sub 2000 in 40 so I only have to stock one cal...If I get the 9mm conversion for my handgun, who knows...

   Nashville posted on The Range 2nd Amendment  I invited a friend to meet me at Nashville Armory today and bring his guns...
New in box Henry .22 Golden Boy and a .32 Tarus pocket pistol. I have a .40 Springfield XD and a 150 year old .58 Civil War rifle...The Henry was toooo much fun to shoot and sight in, I guess we put 200 rounds thru it. The .32 pocket pistol was nothing more than a firecracker, we both were everywhere but close to the center of the target. The .40 SW XD we both had very tight groups! The .58 is always fun to bring out, shoot it once and everybody at the range stops and wants to know...'what was that'...Shot the .58 six times, we both were inside the 8 ring every time. .22 to .58 that is a fun day!
