| Outdoor Board|| Baby girl went to the range with me today for the first time - DLauw on 2/27/15 at 5:17 pm|
I keep asking my wife to go but she won't. Today when she said no I turned to baby girl and she said yeah! She jumped up and was in the jeep before I had everything ready. I never realized she wanted to shoot. She's never shot before so I brought the 1911 and the p226 9mm.
After some instruction ...
| O-T Lounge|| "Unapproachable" boss - DLauw on 2/26/15 at 7:50 pm|
Ok OT, give me your best.
I was informed this evening, by an employee who has turned in their resignation, that I am "unapproachable". I feel like I try to be the exact opposite of that. I truly want to help and enable my employees to do their best. I doubt I could ever be "inspiring".
| Outdoor Board|| School me on some boats: nautic star vs. blue wave vs. pathfinder - DLauw on 2/21/15 at 5:24 pm|
Boat shopping and went to the boat show today in lake chuck. Looked at all three listed in the title. Is one better than the other? Opinions? Reviews? Looking at 24-26' with the 200 or 250 Yamaha.
Looked at a blackjack too. Worth looking at more?
Can someone tell me something about these new ...
| Outdoor Board|| Jeep jamborees- anybody ever participated? - DLauw on 2/4/15 at 10:01 pm|
I've never done any kind of organized trail ride and this year's seasonal registrations are open. I'm thinking about doing a couple this year. If you've done one or many, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the experience. In particular- what are the people that participate like? Is it a fun atmospher...
| Outdoor Board|| Is there any hope for this knife? - DLauw on 1/23/15 at 6:13 pm|
Wife gave me this CRKT over 10 years ago. I lost it, I'm thinking around 2 years ago and found it in a box with some old tackle this weekend. It's seen better days obviously. Think I could salvage it or just throw it away? If I put it on the bench grinder to get the point back will the heat make the...

| Outdoor Board|| Talk me out of gun.... Nevermind bought a new gun - DLauw on 1/19/15 at 9:45 am|
Week and a half ago I held a colt defender at Gator Guns in Sulphur. It's all black finish .45 with Crimson Trace laser grip installed. I should have never held it. I've been obsessing over it since and if I hadn't already had a few beers Saturday, I most likely would have bought it.
Tell me what...
| Outdoor Board|| Recommendations for trigger (job) - DLauw on 1/15/15 at 8:52 pm|
Savage axis 30-06 that doesn't have accutrigger. I need a recommendation for a trigger for it. I watched a video on cutting a ring or two off the trigger spring but I'm not real confident on the safety of doing that.
Savage donesnt sell the accutrigger separately and it doesn't matter anyway bec...

| Outdoor Board|| Killed my first hog today - DLauw on 1/4/15 at 9:26 pm|
Took us about four hours to get her out of the marsh and to the dock. About three hours of dragging her to the boat, about an hour ride in the boat. All the water poured out of the marsh and my buddy had to walk the boat out through the mud while I paddled/pushed the pirogue with the pig. Photos:
| Outdoor Board|| Anybody got a got a blood dog near Starks? - DLauw on 12/26/14 at 12:11 pm|
Shot a doe and can't find her. Having lunch and a beer and going back out. If anyone has a dog close or knows someone who does, I got a $100 bill for your time. My first deer I ever shot so If anyone can help, I'd be greatful.
I'll be back in the woods shortly but I've got reception. tigerlauw@g...
| Outdoor Board|| Baby Girl's Christmas present - DLauw on 12/23/14 at 9:00 pm|
I acquired this wrecked, and put about $1000 into it. All that's left to do is align it, tighten up the suspension, change the oil (check all fluids), detail it and get it inspected. I'm excited that it will be done for her for Christmas.

| Movie/TV Board|| Boyhood- my "review" - DLauw on 12/22/14 at 2:24 am|
ETA: posted before I searched.
I must say this is the best film I've watched in a while. There's no other film like it I can think of. Writer/director Richard Linklater made an epic film starting in 2002 following the lives of two children (ages 6 & 8) for 12 years. Scripts were written for the ...
| Outdoor Board|| 308 and 7.62 - DLauw on 12/16/14 at 5:04 pm|
help me out OB. do i have this right? 308 will fire from a 7.62 chambered rifle but a 7.62 won't necessarily fire from a 308 chambered rifle because of needed length inside the chamber. yes? no? am i all screwed up on this?
doing the research is kind of confusing me. i want to upgrade from the c...

| Outdoor Board|| Camo poncho- need suggestions - DLauw on 11/30/14 at 7:03 pm|
I hunt very little so I'm not interested in buying camo bibs, jackets, coveralls, etc. I'd like a another camo poncho to wear over my warm clothes or dry suit. Prefer a light weight, breathable one rather than waterproof.
Anybody got one they liked or they'd suggest?...
| Outdoor Board|| Soninlaw shenanigans - DLauw on 11/26/14 at 7:14 pm|
I give the boy a hard time but we're actually pretty good friends. He asked if he could store some stuff in my wood shop a while back so I said no problem.
I haven't gone can't speak, can't breath scared in a very long time.

My oldest (at home) daughter had a project she needed a little help with. She's doing something on Camelot in English. All the students were required to make a shield either out of cardboard, metal or wood.
Made from scrap 1x's of oak, pine and some ripped oak plywood. Beveled/ripped the ...

So I've got a pretty simple email address (was one of the first to sign up for MobileMe). It just my first name and the email suffix. I get emails from people all the time asking me or telling me stuff meant for other people. I usually reply with bull shite or accusatory statements about spouses cheat...
