Re: My Job, My Hell...

I still kind of want to visit Japan one of these years. It used to be mainly because I wanted to see just how much taller I was than the average Japanese person, but lately it's mostly because I want to check out the food vending machines. I blame the switch on me watching a bunch of YouTube videos...

Re: Guns for women chl holders

I cant inprove on raptor2 recommendations, I just want to emphasize one part. A Glock 19 can easily be rented at a range. Have her shoot it several times first. That is the first part of the choice. Doe it fit the hand and can the person hit the target with it. I have bought my wife several handguns...

Re: AR15 for Home defense

I recently put my AR9 out next the bed. Kinda-sorta a comprimise between the 5.56 & my Glock. :| PCC's make great home defense weapons- get plenty of power with less noise and flash than a handgun or a AR-15. why would a PCC of the same caliber have less noise and flash?

Re: AR15 for Home defense

What I REALLY want for home defense is a system that tracks where an intruder is in my house and plays creepy childrens laughter from hidden speakers in the next room, moving the sound as the intruder moves. In the garage it could be a chorus of kids singing creepy rhymes alternating from the loft ...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I really want to find a bayonet for my 1917 Enfield, but they are incredibly expensive and relatively rare, considering they were not interchangeable with ANY other rifle before or since. I've thought about using a more modern bayonet and machining the hilt to accept the lug of the 1917. Then I hav...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I put a snap cap in the chamber of my 870 before I dropped the hammer and put it in "cruiser ready" mode back in its spot next to my nightstand. I figure when I have to rack the slide, the snap cap is going to be ejected anyway in order to chamber a live round. This is what i was thinking you were ...

Re: Post COVID, Poor Maintenance and Cumulative Disrepair

I don't think that the a lot of critical infrastructure isn't being maintained (any more than usual).

I know at my healthcare system we haven't cut back on maintenance. venders an employees are still doing their normal activity.

Re: Bow vs air rifle for shtf/prepping?

another consideration is which do you prefer to shoot. if you spend all your pre-SHTF time shooting rifles, then the air gun is the way to go.
IMHO the crossbow is a better compromise that either the bow or air gun. same rifle like skills to employ, with the possibility of ammo recovery.
