| Outdoor Board|| Tick Insecticide--Advice Needed - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 5/23/13 at 7:06 pm|
Up here in N. Alabama we had a mild winter (as most did)...and as a result the ticks this spring are HORRIBLE. The dogs are protected by their meds so the ticks aren't on them...but they do find their way into the house and one me and the wife. Anyone know of a good spray or dust that's good for th...

Would rather get away from the NASA moniker if possible. If not, no biggie...just thought I'd ask....
| Outdoor Board|| Drywall question...here or OT lounge? - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 3/22/13 at 1:21 pm|
I'm gonna ask here as most of you guys are pretty handy kinda guys.
When you have to rip a sheet of dry wall along its long side...how do you keep it from cracking up the gypsum inside? How do you keep it from cracking when you go to put in the screws into the studs?

Can the homeowner (or their delegate) legally detain that trespasser at gunpoint until the authorities arrive?...

I know there's been a lot of anti-NASA sentiment on here..and desires to move to commercial space ventures...well here's one (actually the second one from SpaceX.)

Either once fired Lake City or new. R-P will work also.
That looks pretty slim too!...
| Outdoor Board|| Anti Gun Movies...Gonna see new anti gun ones? - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 1/11/13 at 8:29 pm|
With all this anti gun sentiment, and the Feds wanting to place some (read: not much) of the blame on the entertainment community, will we see more movies/TV shows like MacGyver with Mr Anti Gun himself, Richard Dean Anderson?
Placed this here...so as to not get into a political discuss...
| Outdoor Board|| Tasers...kind of a stupid question I know... - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 1/9/13 at 4:55 pm|
With all this talk about gun control and such....What's the rule on open carry/concealed carry of a taser?
I'm sure someone's figured out how to make non-lethal....lethal....
| O-T Lounge|| Stoplight Camera and Police officer present - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 1/2/13 at 1:03 pm|
I was thinking of this situation on my way to work this morning. Up here in H'ville we don't have stoplight cameras...so I wondered how it worked in La.
Here's the situation: You blow thru a red-light that has a camera and there's a cop present at the light as well. He pulls you over for runni...

What says the OB? Who makes a good .44 lever action these days?...
| O-T Lounge|| Any former or current Artillery FOs on here? - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 12/19/12 at 12:09 pm|
I used to work on the Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT) simulator (Mobiles) that was based out of Camp Beauregard. In the Bradley set we had a dismount trailer with an FO station set up. The FO station had a computer with it (GI computer...very rugged). There was a name/acronym for that FO com...
| Outdoor Board|| Ok. I'm confused - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 12/18/12 at 7:43 am|
I keep reading about a new "assault weapons ban" and the ties to the Newtown CT murders. However I also read the shooter left his AR-style weapon in the car and the killings were done with pistols.
What gives? Did he use the AR or did it stay in the car? Is the "assault weapons ban" proposal ...
| O-T Lounge|| USMC Terminology Question - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 12/11/12 at 8:29 am|
First the question: What is the term for a US Marine who has been honorably discharged/retired?
There, that should take care of the tl;dr comments.
Background information: I was told this morning by a USNR Senior Chief that Marines are Marines or Retired Marines, not Former Marines. Seems odd,...

I've shot a Remington 870 from when I was a senior in HS, before that an Ithaca Model 37. Thinking of getting a 11-87 or a Beretta of the same type (semi-auto)....Any thoughts on the 11-87?...

My FIL is looking for a new Winchester 94 with a 20" barrel chambered in 30-30. So far it's been a little difficult to find. He lives in Lafayette. I've been pricing them online..and it looks like the going price is $1000 +/-$200. Anybody know who may have these on hand in La that he could find on...

What is the NSN number for the ACOG used presently by the USMC? Does the USA/NG use ACOGs..and if so what NSN do they use?...
| Tiger Rant|| By the way the Bammer Radio Stations are spinning this CLM to Arky... - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 11/28/12 at 6:59 am|
They must be scared of CLM. WDRM in Huntsville said Les was going to talk to the Arkansas people. No where else have I seen that kind of information. WDRM's morning DJs are a Bammer and an Ole Piss fan. Go figure.
The only time they report on LSU sports is when it's negative. Again, go figur...

(a) Which one should I keep loaded? The metal mag or the PMAG?
(b) What's a "safe" number of rounds to keep for a while on the spring without wearing i...

Someone from back home (La) told me the WMAs started requiring you to register your weapon to hunt on there. I've never hunted on a WMA so I don't know...is this something new or has it always been that way since when??...

I have a Jabra BT headset for my personal iPhone that it's paired with. I also have to carry a NASA leash, their iPhone. The Jabra says it can be paired with multiple devices (I've got it paired with my iPad as well)...Has anyone ever paired a BT with two phones? Any luck?

| Tiger Rant|| Recruiting OL - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 10/24/12 at 7:55 am|
This is probably too early to start talking recruiting, but I got to thinking about it last night. With the Big 10 having sanctions/suspensions etc, would now be a good time for Les and company to start looking to the midwest area for some of those big corn-fed boys to add to our O-Line? I persona...
| Tiger Rant|| No Call on Fair Catch - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 10/14/12 at 9:32 am|
Was there or was there not a fair catch signal given by OBJ when he got hit near the sidelines? I couldn't see from the re-play and Hawthorne thought there was..not to mention he did FC a lot last night.
If so, this clearly shows bias on the part of the SEC officials. "Intent to harm" flag on L...

Do FCS schools still get large sum payouts for traveling to and playing FBS schools? What about "lower tier" FBS schools?
For instance when McNeese State played MTSU this year and beat them in Tennessee...did McNeese get a check?...
| More Sports Board|| Replacement NFL Officials - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 8/19/12 at 8:50 pm|
I've been watching a lot of the NFL pre-season and I've noticed the scrutiny the replacement officials are receiving. Not saying it's unfair...but will the regular officials receive the same scrutiny once the games count? I seriously doubt it. The media is so biased....
