Re: A quick question about MRE

It is useful to know that the US military inspects MREs after 3 years, and disposes of them after 5 years of the date of manufacture. I wonder when they started that. one of the MREs I got at basic had a package of M&Ms that were proud sponsors of the '84 Olympics. it was September of 94 when I ate...

Re: Consolidating my 9mm collection to one platform

I really wanna downsize my random collection of budget 9mm handguns to one platform. I have a mix of striker and hammer fired guns and I shoot them all pretty well (or poorly, depending on the day). So all things equal, I can handle most platforms. Why? if you have the guns, why not keep them? They...

Often you can't win, well at least I seem to have issues with winning.
It ain't just you, it is all married men.

or look at it as you used up your winning by finding a girl who knows all your loose screws, and still loves you.

Re: Feels like it’s time to start stocking the caches...

...not because I’m worried about anything in particular, but because ammo and spare parts prices are so dang low! Even retail prices around here make it worth stocking up when it’s on sale. For example: $0.35/round for 5.56 with free shipping plus 10 “free” mags at PSA That’s a good bit cheaper tha...

My initial reaction? "Waiting until April Fool's Day to post this must have been tough." Besides that?

the tech sights or the MOJO sights would be a nice upgrade.

other than that, get some stripper clips, and maybe a buttstock pouch from strike hard gear (lets you carry 3 loaded striper clips on the stock)

Re: Building a Bug Out Cart for fun and profit

a lot of people when first trying out the cart try to turn it around and use it as a pull cart, but it absolutely does not work that way. with the load centered over the wheel it takes constant active balance to keep it up right, which is very easy when you can see it and have your arms in front of...

Re: Building a Bug Out Cart for fun and profit

I suspect you'll want a chest/shoulder strap for longer hauls..... How so? I'm not sure you can rig up any kind of strap system as the cart requires active balance, and since there isn't any weight on the handles I'm not sure a strap would do anything. Most pull carts could have some kind of harnes...

Re: Concealed Carry choice

of the three I would say the S&W.

on the subject of small semi-autos, you might try a SCCY 9mm. they are inexpensive (under $200), come with a manual safety, or not, and has a surprisingly light recoil. plus they came in a bunch of colors.
