Re: Mexico 8.0 quake

This was crazy, it was the same day Irma was making initial land fall. My first that was, is the world ending? I kid... :D

Mexico has over a few dozen dead and many issues, this will take a while to clean up.

As for their shipping, not sure what's going on there. Does seem like it takes a bit too long. But then, I am never in a hurry for ammo when I order from them.

Re: When TV shows and movies get it wrong

See lots wrong in shows and films. Most people don't pick up on small things like that, hell most directors don't either. Remember we see something that happened in 5 seconds. It might have been a 12 hour day with 25 takes and the final cut was done on the 1st cut and the 18th cut to piece it togeth...

Re: Where can I find sheets of "velcro" loop?

Sorry to dig up such an old thread. Found this via google search. I was looking for sheets of loop side velcro for all my patches.

A sudden event or slow decay over time?

This question hit me the other day as I was watching a movie. So, I guess my question is; will what causes the SHTF event be a sudden thing (EMP, viral outbreak, other) or will life as we know it just spiral downward until a reset button is hit? Will the later only be a subjective thing (your own pe...

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

One of the better episodes, at least for me personally. Of course things are what they seem and drama will unfold, it's a show. LOL However, I loved Rick's line. "We'll take it from them". This shows us just how far Rick and his crew will go to stay in this safe place without bowing down. The gang a...

I do not feel this would be a very long term sustainable power source but this winter has taught me a few things. Solar is probably not an option in Michigan unless it mobile and well, I don't have that kind of room also in a grid down situation, a generator would be a "HEY COME GET ME" sign in my n...

Re: So someone is rattling my doors on a regular basis.

Great thread with tons of excellent ideas.

Times a wasting, get a camera and do a few other things to find out if it really is a person, and who. Then you can proceed from there.

Re: Top Survival Books

I like Joe Nobody's books. Simple, although he does seem to talk down to people.

SAS survival guide is pretty amazing and they have a very small guide to use as a...

I think the OP handled this the way most rational people would have. Could a call have been made to the PD station to verify? Sure. However things worked out and letting them know you are in possession of a fire arm straight away was also imho the best thing to do. Was he accusing the OP? No, he was...

Re: Woke up with the gun in my hand unaware of why I had it.

Sounds scary man. I'd get that gun put away in something before you hurt someone. Having it as accessible as you do is definitely a danger. Below is what I've done, I keep it unlocked at night and loaded without a round in the chamber. Simple to lock and keep safe when I'm not home. http://ecx.image...
