Are those sun shades Sunbrella brand? Just curious cause we make the cloth in the weaving plant where I work.Well you forgot about putting actual windows in, and a couple doors, Then I would have to add some more framing to close it up.. and then, dont forget all the insulation to keep all that wonderful "coolness" in!!
Oh, and I have a Harbor Freight Predator Generator .. a 8700 watt unit that I've had for a number of years! Works great, I can power everything in my house up with it.. maybe not all at once, but everything is not all running all at once anyway. I ran wires out to one of my outbuildings and set it up out there, excellent set up and excellent generator by the way.
And it doesnt suck to be me... if it gets too warm, in the pool I go.. And I never have to plow snow anymore!

My factory T/C 14" Contender barrel prefers heavy bullets, seated long. My 1st 2 loads it prefers are 150 gr Nosler ballistic tips, and 150 gr Sierra gamekings. With either W-748 or IMR-3031.So I got a little chance to play today. I recently acquired a 14" 30/30 barrel for my contender and thought I'd sight it in before dear season gets here. Brought my little carbine as well to make sure it was still on target. So a 30/30 Contender day. My carbine is pretty well dialed in but this is the first running of the pistol after putting the parts together.
Here's the toys

Took a little more finagling with the pistol, but it seems to be minute of deer anyway.

So mine is similar and likes the 150s also. I'm running Hornady 150 gr RN Interlocks over 33gr H4850 , My 18" tender carbine likes these loads even though I originally cooked them up for my Marlin lever rifle! Thought I would give them a try one day in the tender and they worked so well I kept them as my hunting load in the Contender. What I want to do now is try some 150gr BTs and Accubonds with the same load and see how they do. I have some on hand so I thought I'd give it a shot (pun intended). I need to play a bit more with the 14" barrel but right now at least it is MOD. I had a 14" barrel for years , traded it off like an idiot a few years ago,( I was smart enough to keep my Tasco Pro Class scope though) and I need to go find some old recipes I have used..My factory T/C 14" Contender barrel prefers heavy bullets, seated long. My 1st 2 loads it prefers are 150 gr Nosler ballistic tips, and 150 gr Sierra gamekings. With either W-748 or IMR-3031.
It likes the 125 gr Sierra gamekings almost as much as the 150's.
I can dig up the actual recipes if you want.
