Re: Tavor or Steyr AUG

The high level of hype and advertising that goes along with the Tavor has me still at arms length from it!

I expect it's a pretty good rifle, but watching the mind benders working on the public at large always turns me off a product no matter how well made it is!

Re: First real gun safe

If you're planning on moving again a take apart safe like http://www.zanottiarmor.com/safes.htm will very possibly serve you better! If you're not going to be moving any time soon https://www.sturdysafe.com offers a lot of box for the money! They go with heavier steel and better locks instead of fan...

Re: Tavor or Steyr AUG

The Aug set up to use AR mags is a nice option!

Re: Balaclava recommendations?

Buffs are very thin! They still have warmth to them specially when doubled over and worn that way, but are thinner than I want many days! Minus 33 make a good balaclava and a good gator as well. Can't remember, but seems like Smart Wool does too. That said making a hood turkey hunter style out of a ...

Re: Looking for advice on socks

My first thought is that you need to work on getting quality footwear that is breathable ahead of going off on a big sock hunt! You don't mention what part of the country your in, but I'm also a wool sock 99% of the time except deep summer guy as well! This is a joint effort though and you need both...

Re: Tavor or Steyr AUG

Thought I'd mention that in several states an AR pistol can be carried loaded in the vehicle on your CCW license which gives you several nice options!

Re: Staying Warm with Hand warmers-solid fuel and liquid fue

Zippo also makes the 1/2 sized 6 hour warmers for those wanting a more compact option!

They are also very easy to turn "Off" by removing the burner unit from the hand warmer!

I've been getting more than 12 hours out of my larger Zippo warmers and have found them a nice winters addition!

Re: Wood fired boiler?

DS Machine/DS Stove has a good reputation in the area of coal burning stoves/boilers. They also do wood burning stoves/boilers, but I know little about them.

Re: Ninja char cloth powered personal heater and fire starte

They still make charcoal powered/heated hand warmer for Hunter's/outdoorsmen that slowly burn a charcoal stick over many hours! They are reportedly hard to keep lit and a bit finicky, but should be easy enough to find one! I have gone with the lighter fluid powered catalytic style hand warmer (Zippo...

Re: Need a headlamp for work

I have more than a dozen headlamps and use them often! Several of them are Petzl and they have made a good headlamp for years! My favorite is the ReVolt by Black Diamond since it recharges from the same USB cord that my Android phone does. It uses 3AAA batteries, but can also recharge the batteries ...

Re: Honda Elite Scooter

Honda generally makes good scooters, but you're selling this one short!

It's an 80 cc scooter set up to be as strong/fast as the old Honda 50cc 2 stroke scoots.

Re: Gear for surviving in a city or urban environment

Start simple and build from there! During those two days did you have water to drink, food to eat? Could you have lasted a week? Can you keep warm with the power out? Can you cook food and boil water? Do you have a flashlight and a radio? Prepare for the most common things in your area and then buil...

Re: My Adventure with the blizzard this morning.

I would also upgrade the cotton long underwear, but I'd go with merino wool instead of plastic myself! Not only do I like wearing it better I like that fire doesn't cause it to shrink wrap you like plastic does. The other easy upgrade is a good merino wool sweater can be $20-$25 if bought in a resa...

Re: whats your opinion on a folding saw.

I happily used several different/various ones until I bought a Silky Saw and now everything else seems somewhat slow, dull and quite a bit less useful than it use to!

Re: Minimalist recovery kit for an Awd crossover.

I've been using an American made product called The More Power Puller (https://www.wyeth-scott.com) for 20 plus years! It's lift rated and will pull 2X it's lift rating. It has 35 or 40 feet of cable on it and can run single or double cable depending on how much lift/pull you need. As a broke studen...
