Re: Preparedness for the College/University Student

Southron Boy, I'm glad to hear that we were helpful for you and your family! Definitely share your college experiences with your daughter so she can learn from them. It'll be good to back off, but she'll still want y'all there to help her. Make sure she knows that. I gathered from your last few post...

Re: Preparedness for the College/University Student

Southron Boy, I suggest that you first remember how your daughter and her potential friend-group view preparedness. Gear is less important in this particular case. In general, college women are the most socially conscious individuals that I have ever met, and it doesn't take much to embarrass one. F...

Re: Firearms for the College Student

I appreciate the discussion and suggestions regarding the choice of firearm for the college student, I'll try to address everybody. First and foremost, I would like to apologize to the general readership and the_alias in regards to some of the wording in my first post. I have reevaluated the standar...

Re: Firearms for the College Student

Overpenetration does concern me, and that's why I try and minimize it with Federal 125 gr. hollow points in my nightstand. Overpenetration should concern anybody using a defensive firearm since bullets work by penetrating stuff really, really well. Go on YouTube, look up "drywall vs. *insert defensi...

Firearms for the College Student

Disclaimer: this post is the result of my personal experiences, anecdotal evidence, and research. YMMV. One of the most common questions posted on this forum tends to go along these lines: "If you could only own one firearm, what would it be?" Everybody and their mother will then proceed to shred th...

Re: "Truck"... well "Jeep Gun"... help me decide

The biggest consideration is how well it fits YOU. Go to the gun store and try them all out to see how well they fit your hand. Can you reach the controls? How easy is the manual of arms for you? Concealability isn't that big of a deal if it's going to stay in the Jeep, so you can go for the full-si...

Re: What is your faviorite Defensive Pistol Caliber

While I've shot .40 S&W and .45 ACP several times, I still find 9x19mm to be the best for me. The ammo is cheap enough to practice with and stockpile, recoil is manageable for most people, and ballistics are good enough for two-legged predators. Is 9mm the best option for a bear or for one-shot stop...

Preparedness for the College/University Student

Hello everyone, I’m TheLemonMan and I’m a prepper. Well, I’m as much of a prepper as you can be when you’re 21 years old and in college. A little background, I am an out-of-state student attending a large public university (at least 32,000 students) in a decent-sized urban area of Georgia. Between t...
