    My rule of thumb for a Marlin/Remlin is to use a .460 boolit.

    TXGunNut replied to a thread Opioid/heroin crisis? in Our Town
    Several years ago I was (over)prescribed Hydrocodone for several weeks after a back injury. Insurance company refused to authorize surgery. I had no idea what I was doing; took one so I could get moving in the morning and another to sleep at night....

    TXGunNut replied to a thread Marvel Mystery Oil in Our Town
    Been using MMO for 40 yrs in air tools. Some sit for years in an unheated shed between uses but they always work. I suspect it works as a detergent in engine crankcases; good for maintenance but possibly a bad idea for sludged-up engines. Sludge...

    I buy most of my MTD parts from SEPW. Reasonable prices and freight, great catalogs. I have found that a genuine Cub Cadet deck drive belt will outlast an "equivalent" MTD belt 2 to 1 or better. I bought my Cub Cadet when my MTD mower locked up just...

    For nearly 40 years I worked in an industry that is having it's share of troubles with online sellers. Most folks lose sight of the fact that a local seller employs local people, pays local and state taxes, purchases local goods and services and...

    Did so about ten years ago, haven't gotten around to putting up an antenna yet. TV is one of the biggest wastes of time and money known to man. Ditching the satellite dish only solves half the problem, IMHO.

    TXGunNut replied to a thread Fedex failed claim in Our Town
    If you haven't already request a tracking number and go to the FedEx site for details. You may be able to get helpful details from the delivery notes. Be persistent, sometimes it pays off.

    Quite good but easy to overcook. A bigger snake makes better eating because smaller portions will be overcooked before the crust browns. I don't much care for rat snakes but have a little one (less than 3') under the back porch. I had a big...

    About ten years ago I was working for a company that had a car "damaged" by transformer oil. You'd think it was a highly toxic substance from all the haz-mat activity. I guess some towns would send out a haz-mat crew if someone saw me take a whiz...

    My library reflects my interests in reloading and old Winchesters. I also have several MV books and the requisite book by Uncle Elmer. Seems more and more of the books I like are out of print. Doesn't make them too hard to find, just expensive....

    Thanks, Mary. I was able to find the location of the grave of a childhood friend with this site. I'd long thought it was unmarked in a local cemetery.

    One Angel Flight plane is based near here, suspect there are others. I see it from time to time, they do touch & go's at a nearby airport. Very moving video.

    Sounds like a great day, LL. Sitting in the woods for awhile is one of my "Reset" buttons. I feel better just reading your posts! Funny that the coyote let you move around that much. Never seen one that curious, suspect you're right about the lack...
