If you work alone keep a cell phone on you at all times. I had a call from a guy that had missed his mark with a framing nailer and nailed his hand to a rafter. I had to go over and climb up and use a nail puller to get him free. If he had left his phone any place other than his pocket he would have been hanging there for hours.
Sounds like he needed his claw hammer so he could get that nail out more than a cell phone.....rofl

and that's a big miss...

Yeah I keep my cell phone. Usually in case I falll to the ground from 20ft up so I can call 911, if I?m conscious. Today I was texting back and forth with Norm while on top of the roof.

That's nuts.

Plus I work alone.....kind of hard to do that.

Any recommendations on tool belts?  Mine broke after 15 years.

It started raining so I got one window in.  Just need to put the corner gaskets on it and then drop the head flap and tape the sides and top.

So those hooks mount on the ladder and have a wheel.  Push it up the roof on the wheel side and then flip it over and rest it on the hooks.   I taped 1" foam pipe insulation to protect the metal roof.

Ok. Back at it today. Picked up my windows yesterday. Marvin Integrity Fiberglass single hung single light. 



Started on finishing the roof today. Residential take and the ridge cap are the first order. Then I?ll tackle the windows before going back to finishing the eave flashing and closures.

Then I?ll install hardie in the gable above the porch before installing the metal roof on the porch

Here?s a neat gizmo to get on a steep roof

Norm, the stuff I load is waaay beyond the full power dt stuff and is not recommended for the stock barrel due to the less supported bottom of the chamber.  I also recommend the 23lb wolff recoil spring.

Neat thing about the G20 is a barrel and mag change and its a G21.  So if you have a G21 and buy a KKM barrel and a 10mm mag, you have 2 in 1.

I still like 14 rounds and fast reloads but a 500 wheelie is a beast.

Ken, like i've said before.  I have a 1911 to show my friends and a glock to show my enemies....

I mean it is the Tuck so isn?t it like a law or unspoken rule that everyone is related or distant cousins or some such thing?
We should check the mandals photos to see how may ties Don has. 6 each would be a strong indication of a family tree like a telephone pole

Don, reminds me of a shooting competition I was in with two active duty rangers. Kids really 22 and 23 years old. Sniper team. Cleaning weapons after the day we chatted about their experience as I have a cousin who is a marine Corp sniper in some far away places.  They were running the ?new? M24 system in 300wm for the competition at the time but in the field they ran a 50. They had seen things no one that young should have seen. It was related in a very matter of fact way, that a hit from a 50 at 1500m separates the top half from the bottom half.  And the bottom half take a step or two to figure out it ain?t still attached. 

Regarding bad guys being doped. Ocular cavity shots pretty much cures what ever it is that ailed them.  Immediately.

Some are teaching head shots in self defense as the first point of aim but I?m still a proponent of two center mass and a rapid follow up to the ocular cavity.

I got one for you Norm.  A handgun load that might make you reconsider the utility of a handgun on large animals.....

Barns 200gn XTP in a 10mm glock with a KKM barrel.  1353fps.  14 in the mag.  pretty much a get-r-dun load on most animals, 2 or 4 footed

Well since I'm currently fired, I'm not really posting this:

My load out Don is a CS gas rubber durometer in the #1 position.  Followed by OO all the way to the bottom of the tube.  Side saddle with 3slugs bottom up and 3 more OO bottom down.

As a civi, my thought process is that I gave them a "less than lethal" warning and they refused to heed warning.  Everything after that, they had coming. (think: good for the defense lawyer I will need) Those CS durometers are pretty cool as long as you don't hit them with it closer than about 25 feet as they tend to break skin.  But a whollop to the chest a big poof of CS in the face is a pretty good determinate of who really wants to get it on and who doesn't

OK, I'm back to being fired.  Can't wait to see the new gun Don......

I heard Don day he?s going to get one and do a write up. (Turnabout is fair play for volunteering us to mod)

I have a saiga and M4 but let?s just say I have ?a few? 870s and related parts. My favorite is a Wilson Combat 870 that just runs and runs and runs.

The more I think about the mag system the more I think I don?t like not being able to insert a slug from the side saddle and double rack to transition to a slug

Some of you may know that I love standardizing weapons systems.  One of the systems I've gone to is the 870.

https://www.remington.com/shotguns/pump-action/model-870-dm

Ran across this.  Not sure how I feel about it yet.  I can carry that much ammo in my long tube without a mag hanging down.

However reloading speed and maybe some aftermarket 10 rounders might make this an interesting weapon.

However inserting a slug and double racking seems impossible.

I watched it a few times.  I probably need to watch it from a larger screen. I?m surprised he didn?t get shot when he told him to push himself up to a kneeling position and the suspect put his hands behind his back.

I get the officer was probably a bit wound tight but with all the black lives matter stuff sparking a rash of cop killings I can?t say I wouldn?t be wound right too.   With reports of a weapon being pointed out the hotel window the cop had to assume he was armed. It almost looked to me like he was reaching to move the purse of the lady taken into custody when the cop engaged him.

I think the jury did the right thing. I?m just glad the guy wasn?t black or we?d all be watching the place burn.

Well I?ve been fighting a monster cold and against my wife?s better judgement I was out there yesterday and today. I?ve now lost my voice and am wiped out. But I did get the porch framing finished and got it decked with polar shield. I chose solar sheild since the porch will not be insulated and I want as much relief from the sun as possible.

And of course I ran out of my roll of synthetic underlayment and will have to buy a whole new 1000 sq ft roll for about 150 sq ft





Now I won?t admit she was right but as soon as I get home I?m taking a shower under the endless hot water and getting a nip of 129 proof

Pulled over from JRs room addition thread:

Regarding PEX, which is simply the type of cross linked polyethylene tubing, there are several ways to connect it.

There are crimp rings and barb shanks, of which there are hard copper (?) rings that get crushed with a circular crimp pliers, crimp hose clamps that get pinched on one side like a hose clamp. 

There are tool less shark bite fittings where the hose is pressed into a retention and o-ring sealed fitting.

There are fittings over barbs where hard plastic rings are expanded mechanically and then allowed to shrink back to size to secure the joint.

It appears that the tool to crimp the hose clamp style, side crimp are much more affodable than the circular crimpers, and expanders for the plastic rings.

For the occasional use, small job DIY, which is the best system and why?  I am leaning towards the side crimp hose rings because one tool works on 3/8 up to 1 inch
