Re: To take or not to take, that is the question.

Well hey now folks, to reply and inform on a few things. The rope with the carabiner, which I have a few of, is 30 feet long. The Enduras (folder knives) consist of one serrated and the other straight edge; yes they are more or less EDC items. The seatbelt cutter thing is a Benchmade 7 Hook, and (su...

To take or not to take, that is the question.

Hey folks, Haven't been on in a while. Just wanted to say hey again. Much gear added since last time, to the point of having an excess that can't be carried on person and so much that redundancies get created. Here's what it looks like: http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/9333/dsc4729.jpg Keep in min...

Re: Gun virgin, tell me if this makes sense.

canuck, thanks for starting this thread. I'm considering basically the same purchase as you - and am still also debating the .357 sig. I wouldn't mind reloading either, so I guess that cuts the cost for .357 long term (negating the higher ammo cost argument). I guess my question is though... Why ar...

Surefires compared to Maglites are like Tylenol 3 with Codeine compared to regular Apirin; You doubt how good it is until you actually have it.

Re: Bug out ....fanny pack.

Yes, I know it is a chest harness. But I also know that with a few short and fast adjustments, it can be worn backwards. I've got a pair of TT water bottle pouches and a pair of CountyCom EOD bags on mine. Solid colors, mostly matches, relatively inexpensive, comfy and it holds a hell of a lot of g...

Re: Solar Flashlight ... any good ?

Surefire and Fenix don't make solar powered lights, so I'm gonna say no. What about one of those earth magnet inside and coil to generate electricity flashlights through a hand gesture not unlike masturbation? I think that would be better as you can command power when you want it... and have a laugh...

Re: Recording the Zombiepocalypse?

If there was anything used to 'record' I'd say one of the newer video DSLR cameras (Nikon D90 or Canon 5D MkII) would do the trick. Theyre dual purpose in stills, moving picture, and audio... you could easily use some light prime (fixed focal length) lenses to capture whatever you wanted. SD memory ...

I'm on the fence for Fenix and Surefire and any additional info helps.
