Re: Bug Out Gear Deals (Post 'em when you find 'em)

Does anyone know of a way to convert these panels say for charging an ipod etc? :idea: Is it as primitive as just cutting off the battery pack and attaching a usb or something?! It must be just about that simple. The company that 'supposedly' makes the panel/charger, PowerFilm, sells a newer versio...

Re: Snugpak Rocket Pak Review (pic heavy)

Very good review and excellent photos! Thanks for this, I am interested in a Snugpak Sleeka Force 35 myself so I like to see reviews on any of their gear. It is pretty hard to find overall in the US though, but I have a few places to try as it is on my "must have" list now. Along with a bunch of oth...

Re: After I saw this Article I went and bought a Life Hammer

You should see if you can find Mythbusters episode 72, it was pretty cool to see what would not break the glass, and then the center punch and a hammer like shown in the first post would shatter it easily. These tests were done underwater too, so they are valid in this discussion. I tried to find th...

Sigg bottles and BPA

Though you all may be aware, I found the recent article and such on the Sigg water bottles having trace amounts of BPA interesting. All the people that left the plastic bottles for Sigg are sure not happy about it that is for sure! The kicker is that they knew and kept quiet for over two years befor...

Well, there are plenty of them out there, do you have a price range? Look at 4sevens.com, lighthound.com, and batteryjunction.com for some of the better lights and good prices. All of the mentioned sights usually have some type of discount available too. For one of the most recent lights that people...

Re: 5 massacres in 3 weeks. Let's discuss what this means for us

However I suspect there are far more people in your own country who would prefer it to be a gun free country than actually care about firearms. While many of you may have your life revolve around firearms, there are a lot of people who do not. Actually, I have to say that I believe you are wrong in...

Re: Hidden rooms, blast doors and escape tunnels

Or, like in the next county over from me, there are no permits. None. You build what you want where you want, the only thing that has to be inspected is the septic tank if you are putting one in. Other than that, build away unless there are some rules associated with a lot in a community or such. (n...
