Re: Black tide rising series

Looking forward to this. Never disappointed by JR. A little freaked out by the Paladin of Shadows books, but never disappointed.

Re: Mumbai meets Midwest - 2/20- update

I am really enjoying your story, keep it up. There were Christian Lebanese on my dorm floor, back in the 1980's. Rowdy bunch, but nice enough. One of them used to go home during spring break to fight muslims. Very very hardcore.

Re: Mosin front sight.

Huh, I knew it would cause it to shoot either left or right, with it stowed. Hadn't thought about what would happen vertically. I purposely didn't extend it, since I was shooting in an indoor range, hence the 25 yards. My normal range lets me shoot 50 or 100 yards, and I could extend it there, but i...

Mosin front sight.

I bought a Romanian M44 a couple of months ago that shoots approx. 5 inches low at 25 yards, and I'm curious if there's someone here with a caliper and M44 that can tell me the height of their front sight. Mine's measuring .68 from the top of the barrel to the top of the post. I'm either going to ha...

Re: Building a chuck box camp kitchen.

I remember building something like this when I was in Scouts. We called it a 'patrol box'. It had doors on both sides that folded down to become work surfaces. There were drawers and slots for silver ware, plates, condiments, etc. on the ends, and the central area was open, for pots. The ends were a...

Re: Project N.E.R.D.

The 'grey man' concept is situation dependent. The situation has two components, where and when. Examples: Immediately after/during a disaster, on a college campus. Person one is in hiking boots and carrying a raggedy knap sack. Person two is in Marpat, LBE, and carrying an AK, who does law enforcem...

Re: Mules

I've had only limited experience with mules, but like them better than horses, as they're less excitable. We used them as pack animals, on a week long boy scout trip in what passes for mountains in S.E. Oklahoma. I think they're seen as ornrey, because they know what they can and can't, or don't wan...

Re: DIY Rocket Stove

That's one of the nicest examples I've seen. I must note, though, they used galvanized vent pipe. It will work, as is, but it will put off unhealthy fumes until all of the galvanization burns away. A better choice would be black stove pipe, which is made for hi heat.
Nice find, thanks for posting.

Are you talking about a civilian vehicle with some armor added to it, or an 'armored vehicle'? If it's the former, I'd say stop strips and railroad ties. If it's the latter, don't even bother trying.

Why not just translate the abbreviations, in parentheses? That way we still get MOAR, and learn something, too.
