Re: My Job, My Hell...

Well I am still trying to figure out why I caught a spoon to the head, along with Dean, Jeff and Tony. Now I know exactly why Tony (as he lives to say he was a Marine, then he changed branches and went Air Force) caught the spoon. Gilt by association. you know him, so somehow you share in the blame...

Re: Post COVID, Poor Maintenance and Cumulative Disrepair

I don't think that the a lot of critical infrastructure isn't being maintained (any more than usual).

I know at my healthcare system we haven't cut back on maintenance. venders an employees are still doing their normal activity.

Re: Bow vs air rifle for shtf/prepping?

another consideration is which do you prefer to shoot. if you spend all your pre-SHTF time shooting rifles, then the air gun is the way to go.
IMHO the crossbow is a better compromise that either the bow or air gun. same rifle like skills to employ, with the possibility of ammo recovery.

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

One can hope! That's the main reason I keep a .40 cal around, for those times that cheap police and alphabet agency surplus ammo hits the market. And agencies have been stocking up in record numbers in recent years, it would be nice for shooters if police get defunded and have to sell some of that ...

Re: A present for my wife ...

I second the recommendation of a Henry .22 leaver gun. I believe that the .22s are all loaded through the end of the tube. other calibers have side loading gates, but you cant go wrong with Henry.

I'd written several times suggesting just about this solution. I suggested they drop it at the parking lot at the trailhead. I am a big fan of monuments. I think they are useful in many ways.

Some guy on Reddit converted a Cricket into a little single-shot survival pistol . Pretty neat concept, I think. In an ideal world, I might try to find a way to make a less-bulky brace. This is almost screaming for a little pic strip on the back to attach to, instead of a fixed faux-AR buffer tube....
