Re: Mumbai meets Midwest - 12/23 - update

Oops, I spoke too soon. I should have realized that of all the targets for such an invasion force, the media outlets would be pretty vulnerable. I know five individuals who work here in Nashville at television stations or one radio station. None of the five have a CCP and none own a handgun. If that...

Re: Mumbai meets Midwest - 12/23 - update

A few years ago, we were having a meeting of ZS024 at the Mason's Lodge and we found out that among twenty people were 7 semi-autos, 1 revolver, 14 knives of useful HTH length, and two monkey balls. Only a single person with a semi-auto did not carry an extra clip but everybody else was carrying one...

Re: Food preps, where to start???

Water is the First Tier to start because of the Rule of Three (3 minutes w/o air; 3 days w/o water; 3 weeks w/o food = Death). I keep a few cases of bottled water which can be used for hydration, wound irrigation, and freezing for cold packs but they are not to be used for flushing your crapper. Inv...

Did you use a printed plan for the new structure or did you design it yourself? I would really like to see the plans because it would be much easier than hanging all those pie plates.

Re: Urban wild edibles video

If you have a local library, a good eye, and some time, you can quickly learn that there are edibles all around you in an urban, suburban, and border environments that are completely edible and nutritious. Most can be eaten raw when young but almost all can be stewed or stir-fried. I have harvested ...

Re: Revolver as bug-out gun

As I have written on several occasions, the combination of a six gun S&W with a pump or lever action rifle both in .357 just about make a perfect BOW combo. Semi-autos are great bit there is just nothing that makes an opponent jump like the sounds of a hammer clicking back, a lever being cranked, or...

Chicken, beer, and the head. Sometimes that is all you need although apart from food, booze, and crapper, I am somewhat surprised you didn't also have "How much?" and "Where?"

Re: New to archery: basic low down

Learning from a professional is always the best way to begin to acquire a new skill. With take down bo...

Re: Modern pistol caliber 9mm carbine?

Kel-Tec is a decent, less costly entry into the pistol cartridge long arm but check out the reviews. The plastic composite is durable enough to be dropped on carpeting, mud, or soft ground. It will not stand up to heavy abuse because the frame and barrel might be knocked around. It also has the adva...

Re: What long arm and handgun are you using to bug out?

Maybe it is a Southern thang but most of the long arms posted on this thread are decent man-killers as long as: a)the target is not wearing body armor and b)you are under 100 yds away with nothing to shoot through. I do not believe that a .22, .223, or 5.56 are going to be able to bring down a deer ...
