    Memphis Area unclaimed Veterans Funeral

    I pray those rest in peace for their service.
  2. Just another example of being blind to the facts. Facts don't matter to them, they're willing to do or say whatever is necessary to further their objective.

    Drill Press Advice

    HF has some reasonably priced ones, but quality is always suspect there IMO. You take your chances there. Most big box stores have entry level ones with a better warranty.
  6. Beautiful work again, and as usual.

    People may think you are an idiot, but there is no reason to open your mouth and prove it.

    Headlight bulbs

    Try and find a car forum for your brand/model and see what they say about headlight bulbs. Some work better than others (last longer, etc). With the DRL's, the lights probably last as long in terms of hours but if you drive more during the day, the lights are on since you drive more during the day than at night. JMO. I've read where the DRL, or some of them run at a slightly lower voltage by design, and this may not be good for the bulbs. Different situation I know, but I've got some recessed lights over the garage doors at the house, they have been on 24/7 for almost 14 yrs now and I've never replaced a bulb yet. I do have a dimmer switch on these.

    Another Quake???

    There was one reported in Vonore TN on 12/23 around 2:30pm or so. I live 15 miles from there, didn't feel/hear a thing.

    wanted 22-250

    Look at the Rem 783 or Cabelas/BPS FV12, depending on what your intentions are.
  11. I have one of your cards I got from a range buddy. I'm wanting/needing some barrels threaded for suppressor. Thanks for the info on your hours.
  12. Ok, thanks, will have to get in touch to set up a time.

    It snowed last night so....

    Saw that somewhere else, funny but sad because that could have really happened.

    Tired of being tired.....

    When I was still in the "work force", it got to the point where missing one day of work for a legal holiday on Monday for example, it seemed like that Tuesday after the holiday was hell trying to get caught up. I got to the point where I dreaded the holidays that fell on Monday, much less taking a couple days or even a week off for vacation. Sure someone else did my job while I was out for vacation, (but just the bare minimum), and then having to deal with all the related issues from a half azz job being done when I returned. I dreaded the vacations as well. Today's "management" believes that one person can do the work 2 or 3 year round since that one person has done it when the other 2 or 3 were out in the past for whatever reason. Burnout is a very common thing, but everyone needs the job/paycheck for what ever reason they have. Not many people truly "like" their job and enjoy going to work, it's just gotten to "try and survive another day". I don't miss the work force days at all, and enjoy doing things on my own schedule. LOL

    Cold Barrel Shot Testing

    Could just take a 2nd firearm to shoot while you wait for the other one to cool down. I usually take a 22RF in these circumstances, takes 5+ minutes to set up the 22RF, load it and shoot it for a few minutes, put it aside and go again on the cold bore testing. Repeat
  16. Glad to see or read about a good outcome in these types of situations. Props to her for keeping her cool and aiming straight. She really paid attention in class didn't she.
  17. Nothing wrong with that,

    Primed hornady brass

    I've "recylced" live primers, not an issue for me IF I know brand, etc.. Some do, some don't.
  19. I've got family in JC and Kingsport, grew up in Jonesboro (pre "hysterical"). I'm amazed at the number of condo/apt complexes being built or have been built, along with all the related traffic. Seems like no one works up there based on the traffic during the daytime.

    Primed hornady brass

    It's fairly easy to punch out the live primers with a LEE de capper die, it won't resize them, just punch the primer out. Go EASY & SLOW, wear PPE, keep your body parts away from the press as best you can. If you have a Wilson case gage or any brand, you can see if they have been FL sized or not. Or see if they will fit in your gun without issues. Some say just load the primered case in gun and pull the trigger to set off the primer, and start over on case prep. If you have a FL sizing die, could decap and resize with well lubed cases. Not recommended to actually size cases with live primers.

    The IT Crowd

    Thought UT was bringing back its diversity program when I read the thread title. LOL
  22. Don't forget E TN is in a major fault area as well. Wonder what us "hillbillies" would do in a major earthquake.
