Re: Concealed Carry: BUGs vs Mags

Why not leave the pistol (loaded; w/ full mag and +1 in pipe) in its holster, and take it off still holstered to store it?

I'm a small guy, and I've found that the cheap Coleman folding cot is surprisingly comfortable.
A standard knee height cot is not going to fit in the OP's tent.

Thats like saying "I'm cool with a car crash that only needs a seatbelt, but I refuse to crash with one that needs a seat belt AND an air bag" Like, those statements never made sense to me.

Toss it in your bag and it'll be there when you need it.
I measure out 30' and fold it back and forth in my fist. From there it fits conveniently in a plastic snack baggie.

Yeah, that guy's got a neat machine. It's small scale cracking and refining in a reasonable-looking apparatus. It requires a lot more energy input than you're going to get by burning the finished product, though. Yup. It sounds like there is no getting around the high energy input for this process....

The idea of a plastic pellet (or ground down plastic) engine is a fascinating idea. Reminds me of a wood gasifier.

Re: Ammo can love (and hate)

Why not put some acetone on a cotton ball swirl it on a spot to get some paint, and then swirl it on the spot that needs paint?
You could even have a designated paint "donor" can.

Re: Elegant way to carry a headlamp

I tried this with a velcro cable tie last night, and it did not work out very well. It kept snagging and pulling the fabric material of the head band. But I think a "ranger band" or an elastic loop would work really well.
