I'm looking to buy a couple of acres in Covington to build a small house on and raise a few cows.
I have no clue who to talk to about borrowing money for undeveloped property. I'm not sure I can even do it. Do regular realtors deal in undeveloped/agricultural land? Is there some state department...

Mine has crapped out for good.
Neither dicks or academy has them in the store. Is there some kind of specialty place for this stuff?...

I heard a song on the radio this morning on the Cajun French radio and one of the lines was "the fish are biting and I'm a gone pecan"
I need to know who sings it so I can get that on my phone. Anybody have an idea? I feel like some of y'all ville platte guys could figure it out. ...

Anybody have any experience doing this? According to the app fare quote it will only be about $30 max. Are these typically accurate quotes? That seems a little too good to be true. ...

The shield is gone and a 3" gp100 is in.
It needs a night sight and a less massive grip. The front sight is pinned and supposedly SP101 sights fit it perfectly.
The grip is atrociously huge.
I know nothing about what's good and not good with these things. Suggestions???...
| Outdoor Board|| Why is it taboo for "professional" deer hunters to shoot more than once? - DownshiftAndFloorIt on 7/20/14 at 3:46 pm|
Why do they almost never shoot more than once?
Often they make a horrible shot, the deer is still clearly in view and still alive, and they start high fiving the camera man and using binoculars.
Why do they never make an attempt to finish off the animal?...
| O-T Lounge|| Why do people in Harahan/Kenner/New Orleans hate turn signals? - DownshiftAndFloorIt on 7/18/14 at 7:27 am|
For those who are natives, why do you not use your blinkers when you're getting ready to turn? It's an epidemic. After a few months of careful observation, close to half of the drivers I see do not use their turn signals around here. Plenty of the ones that do don't turn them on until they've starte...

| Outdoor Board|| Bought a Shield 9mm today(update pg3) - DownshiftAndFloorIt on 6/29/14 at 3:29 pm|
Just got back from shooting and I have some questions about it.
1) Will the magazine spring loosen up? This thing is a dog to load full.
2) What kind of accuracy should I be expecting? I'm used to long barreled revolvers and hitting a can at 30 yards is usually pretty easy. It was taking me ...

She's getting adjusted pretty well.
She's still not in the best shape. Also have to call the vet tomorrow to fi...

Thinking about getting one for my coon dogs. Does anybody have any experience with them, or more importantly running a dog with a pile of collars on them?
My main concern is the e-collar interfering with my tracking collar. I'd be running my dogs with 3 collars on and I'm not sure if that's going...

I have a credit card that I would like to have canceled. I've never been late on it and don't owe any money on it. Will having it canceled hurt my credit score?

I only know two things about commuter cars (ie cars that are supposed to get good fuel mileage). I know I don't want one, and I know I need to get one. I have a pretty long drive to work and doing it in my truck daily just isn't going to happen.
Are there any of those fuel sipping ultra reliable...

My coon dog tore a pad on his front paw. I've been putting some EMT gel dope on it and it keeps it from hurting him for a while, but I don't think that's a good thing. It's getting better, but at this rate it'll be a month before I can hunt him.
Any old school remedies out there? I have some good...

Time to get some new shoes for big green.
In this picture it's wearing 33x12.5r15 BFG KM2's. There's definitely room for more meat under there, but I'm pretty happy with the 33's. It still pulls really well and anything bigger is going to land me a re-gear from 3.73 to 4.56

To make a long story short, this is what happens when you start pulling spark plugs which require the use of a 6' cheater pipe.
