psa: tn hcp and moving out of state

If you have a Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit and move out of state, the TN Department of Safety will cancel your HCP as soon as they receive notification that you have acquired a driver’s license from another state. 

This is not terribly well publicized online, but I called the DoS and asked them directly, and that was the answer. 

The lack of a grace period is somewhat annoying, but when coupled with North […]

for sale: 2008 pre-production mustang bullitt

Own a piece of history!

In 1968, Steve McQueen charged across the screen in the critically acclaimed movie “Bullitt“, which featured one of the best car chase scenes in all of Hollywood’s history. However, one of the biggest characters in the movie never had any speaking lines – a 1968 390 V8 Ford Mustang GT Fastback painted in, of course, hunter green.

40 years later, Ford released the 2008 […]

james yeager, helping the "gun control" extremists

Considering that my posts documenting how James Yeager is a coward and how he violated the Tennessee constitution are getting an unusual amount of traffic in recent days, I thought I would take a brief moment to comment on Yeager’s most recent bout of mind-numbing stupidity wherein he stated, "If it goes one inch further, I’m going to start killing people!".

eurohaus motorsports – strongly recommended

I seem to have something of a cursed* car (you mentioned wanting to buy it, WizardPC…?).

A few months back, it managed to find something sharp and pointy with its front right tire, and, thankfully, Eurohaus Motorsports was kind enough to yank it out and patch the tire at no charge.

Apparently, a few days ago, the rear right tire managed to find this:

The […]

so it is a dying sport, huh?

I have been going to Coal Creek Armory for the past three+ years we have lived in the Knoxville area, and I have learned that there are definitely some times you do not want to try to get a range lane – after church on Sunday, afternoons towards the end of the week, and definitely Saturday afternoon. This past Saturday, I swung by CCA to check on something around 1100, and I knew […]
