Re: COVID-19 Thread

Martial law would likely do it, but I expect there would still be legal challenges. I'm not an attorney, nor did I stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night, so what I say/think about this may be utterly wrong. It would be more uncharted territory. The USG is not the gate keeper on freedom of moveme...

Re: COVID-19 Thread

I have no idea about this when it comes to Canada. I don't expect you to, but what would need to occur to achieve that restriction in America? A state of emergency? Martial law? An agreement between governor's and state troopers? Martial law would likely do it, but I expect there would still be leg...

Re: COVID-19 Thread

That gets into an area that would see a lot of legal challenges as being unconstitutional I think. What about under martial law? Just curious. Canada's eastern provinces are closed. But they're small provinces with few (read: one, maybe two) highways. My wife was speaking to a colleague from their ...

Re: Looking into a new pistol

Dunno about .357 Sig (as I've never actually seen it in the wild), but there are 10mm Auto->.40 S&W conversion barrels for 10mm Glocks, even the gen 5. A friend of mine who's a US Army police officer (not military police 31 Bravo - civilian Army Police officer) had one as his off-duty gun for awhil...

Re: Near-Death Experiments in Food

So, my wife has four slices of toast and a glass of milk for her breakfast. Every day. And she's been doing this since she was a teen. She prefers raisin bread so we keep 4 loaves of it frozen in our big upright freezer. In the past, I used to bake it for her every week but stopped when I started ge...

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

Nice deal but after the big middle finger Dick's gave to the firearms community awhile back I won't do business with them. The rest of y'all are grown adults and free to make up your own minds about this.

Re: Looking into a new pistol

I'm sorry to not answer the question you are asking, but a far better way is to stock enough commonly available (and far cheaper) ammunition during normal times that you don't even notice periods of low supply.... I have this covered. plenty of 9mm, 45 ACP, & .22 picking up something to handle odd ...

Re: Prep WINS - Post YOUR Perp related wins and saves!!!

About 15 years ago, 3 years before I joined ZS with my first account (this is my third - don't ask), I was doing some work for a local dentist who wanted to clean out the empty apartment above his office that he'd been using for storage and get it fixed up so he could rent it out, essentially a comp...
