  1. In the late 80s I worked for Terminix in the Memphis area for 9 months. I never saw insulation under any house. I laid out a lot of vapor barrier under houses. It was 6 mil plastic, 4 ft x 200 ft rolls, 4 rolls per case. Let it lap over 6" and use nails to staple it together. I did my sisters house and she said she could feel the difference during the winter. My second wife wanted to spend our honey moon in Nashville. While there we visited a college friend. They were working on the crawl space. It was tall enough to stand in about a 3rd of the house. They had dug out to level the floor, trenched for water flow to the sump pumps. Laid down vapor barrier and covered it with crushed limestone. First time seeing insulation in the floor joist.,It was installed the right way. After wiring in lighting he wanted to staple insulation to the joist the wrong way and cover the joist. I talked him out of it. A couple of months later I passed a construction site where a large, tall metal building was on the way up. There was a large pile of 2" x 28" x 40" sheets of Styrofoam used in packing of the metal siding for shipping. I packed my truck with all I could carry. I read about it on the internet that night. It will breath were paper will not. It was carried to Nashville our last trip there. They cut the foam so it fit between the joist tight and painted the bottoms of the joist. The picture I was sent looked great.
  2. Check at ammo seek. First page shows 2.6 to 3.5 per shot.
  3. I was at Academy Sports the other day. Federal 1100 rd bucket 36 gr, 3.9 per shot.
  4. I printed this one. http://www.targetz.com/targetzlib/10141.pdf I carried the copy to work and printed off 100 from the copy machine on 8 1/2 X 11" white paper. I color the center with a red sharpie using a 3/4" washer as a guide. I carried a friend to the range and we shared a booth. Only one target paper per lane. Back to the copy machine to put 2 of these targets on a 11 X 14" sheet and printed 100. My grandson is in high school ROTC and they shoot air rifles at this target. http://www.mytargets.com/target22 circles x20.pdf So that they will be no difference of the target I printed and copied 100 for him to use at home.
  5. At an auction the other night the seller had a case of Remington 22 LR ammo, 500 ct per box. He never ran it for auction. As the request section of the auction started I asked about them. He wants $20 per box. The auction company adds 10% onto all sales. So now that box will cost $22. I did a walk through at walmart, I don't shop there. They had 2 different boxes of Remington 22 LR , both are 550 ct boxes. Ones is $19.49 and the other is $19.97. Get to know prices before you head to an auction.
  6. We would camp at Pickwick lake's Tail Race campground years ago. Catfishing from the bank wasn't very good. In the evening we'd hit the boils below the dam using a 3/4 oz red jighead with a 6" plastic shad. Cast out to the boil, let sink for a few seconds then raise the rod a bit. A stripe was usually on and the fun began if it was a big one. Longest I caught was 25 inches.
  7. Go to Firehouse Subs to get their buckets. $2 each with lids. Money goes to help First Responders.
  8. Welcome. Want to shoot at an open range with my family? Let's meet up at Sardis, MS
  9. If you buy prepped cases to reload do you collect them after shooting, ship them off to be prepped again?
  10. "potatoes added to okra" Cut the potatoes like you would do fries, 1/4 to 1/2" square then cut them about 1/2" long. About half potatoes and half okra. Bread them with the okra. I use cornmeal, add a little salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder to the mix. Shake off some of the mix as you add them to the grease.
  11. I prep my own 223 cases, very little work involved. Prepping 556 cases to 223 is a lot more work. Just got a 5 gallon bucket of mixed 223/556 cases. Looking at head stamps now. So far very few 223 cases.
  12. Looks like an ad for MS Processed Brass dot com to me.
  13. First time to McIvor Shooting Facility 09/06/2019 had the pistol range to myself. Couldn't get any kind of pattern with my 40 sw. Did a bit better with my 9m. A little better with my 357. 38spl, there was no heart left in the target after 200 rounds. Guess I'm a 38spl wheel man. I saw a sign driving to the range, fresh produce. I stopped when leaving, everything was $1 per lb. by his scale I got 8 lbs of Mortgage lifter tomatoes. 12 lbs of okra, 8 lbs of yellow straight neck squash. At home potatoes were added to the okra for frying, onions were add to the squash for frying. A quart of purple hull peas and a pan of buttermilk cornbread
  14. Dad made a single cylinder wet tumbler from a threadmill, very few notes left with it. A 6" PVC 22" long pipe with a cap at one and a screw on cap the the other., Fill cylinder with with brass, 5 lbs of pins, 2 Tsp Dawn, 1 tsp dishwasher dryer, fill with water. Didn't matter if I used Teflon tape or wet seal it leaked. Brass would have wet seal on them and some of the pins would be stuck in it. I replaced it with a rubber expansion plug. Max time for the threadmill is 150 minutes. Brass comes out looking great. Wash water goes into the flowerbeds, boxwoods and roses seem to like it along with rinse water. Rinse 2 times and spin to remove pins then back into the cylinder with 2 Tsp Nu Finish and filled with water. Set timer for 150 minutes. Spin and rinse 2 times to remove more pins. Garden plants don't need this water, dump in lawn. Then to a 10" pvc cylinder with screened windows with a fan behind the threadmill for cool air drying for 150 minutes. Added note, wash hands, apply a little Nu Finish to hands before handling brass. I had orange spots when I didn't. Inspect 380, 9m, 38spl, 357 and 223 brass before loading. Pins like ti hang in them.
  15. One thing I remembered about my dad. He had a 30" shop fan blowing from behind him while casting. If we were indoor or outdoor shooting that fan was behind us.
