  1. I appreciate everyone’s help.
  2. The paper faces down towards the vapor barrier and the pink insulation faces up towards the roof. I don’t know if that is what you are describing or not. The plan is to have the insulation ripped out, and the wood sprayed with Borate. There is not any wood decay and very little fungus. Then the vapor barrier will be replaced. I am wanting to avoid replacing the insulation. Is there a requirement for there to be insulation in the crawlspace?
  3. There is a partial vapor barrier now and a new one will be installed. The fiberglass faces up towards the floor. No water coming into to the crawlspace.
  4. I have heard others say that too. I appreciate it. The moisture in the crawlspace really isn’t bad but some of our closets would get mildew. Someone hinted that the insulation could be to blame.
  5. Is it required for there to be insulation in a crawlspace? I’m selling my old house, and I am going to get the crawlspace treated. They want to rip out the insulation; I believe it has caused moisture issues inside the house anyway. I am just trying to budget if I need to replace the insulation.
  6. It is difficult to just throw a recommendation out there for you. If I weren’t so far away I would meet you and let you try out some of mine. Most people, with the exception of hardcore gun guys, do not want to carry anything larger than a 2-3” 23oz revolver. A five or six shot 38spl is plenty for most civilians. There is a reason the five shot j frame is the most sold revolver over the last 50 years. For many of us they are just the perfect edc pocket companion. I have a 10.5 oz S&W 342 that you would honestly forget you were carrying. My 15oz 442 has been my carry gun for over three years. I have recently warmed up to the new Colt Cobras and may incorporate one of them into my carry rotation in the months to come. Since I am a LEO I have to qualify on all that I carry so it takes planning to change my carry. I carried a 3” 7 shot 686 for a year and it was really too much. I have some 2.5” and 3” k frames that are great shooters but not much smaller than the 686. I could offer up a 2017 Colt Cobra, in very good condition, for $500. I picked up a different version of the Cobra is the only reason to part with the 2017 edition. I also have a 3” S&W model 60 in 357 I have thought about parting with.
  7. GT’s is saying they are $359 for everyone.
  8. And Glock is serious when they make that threat. I did get a hint; we’ll sort of. They said don’t be expecting a revolutionary breakthrough because this isn’t it.
  9. I thought I mentioned this already. Most of the time if it is the last round in the mag it is an inertia feed and almost always because the slide is outrunning the mag. Sometimes a stronger mag spring masks the problem if a stronger recoil spring doesn’t take care of it. This is not the sound of extractor tension being the culprit; we normally see that with rounds throughout the entire magazine. A dirty or wet mag can also contribute to inertia feed.
  10. You are only 20 minutes away from GT’s. My friend picked up a nearly new 21SF for $400 OTD a month ago.
  11. One more thing, 1911 mags should be dry as a bone and as free of dust and dirt as possible. The mags needs to be extremely dry.
  12. It’s worth a trip back to RIA. They will eventually get it running or send you a new one. What happens if you load one round into a mag and try to release the slide? Does it go into battery 100 times out of 100? I really believe you are experiencing the dreaded inertia feed. An extended magazine release will do nothing.
