Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

hmm, I'm using unique in 9mm, looks like it may be decent for .357 as well. I'll have to test some.

Re: Baofeng Radios.

I use chirp myself as well. There can still be driver issues with win/mac. Popular USB to serial chips are often copied and the original makers try to put copy/counterfit detection in their drivers, but those can even have false positives and refuse to work even with legit chips.

You can do similar with other manufacturers, for example: https://www.hodgdon.com/titegroup/ then there is a list of calibers to choose from.

Re: Mental health disorders rising in every country

Also more people are getting diagnosis. I know many people a generation or two older than I that should have had a diagnosed mental disorder but never went to the doctor unless it was a sickness alcohol couldn't cure. So there were a lot of undiagnosed back in the day.

I think the initial thought is like the 'leave your car unlocked so they won't break the window'. If you try to stop looting you'll just start a riot and instead of the end result being an empty store you'll have a burned down store.

Re: Building a Bug Out Cart for fun and profit

I'm probably overstating the balance issue, it is only more tippy compared to the previous cart, not really that tippy in general. I would still like it to be less tippy, hence buying a narrower rack. I won't lower the panniers below the axle if I can help it as I don't want to give up ground clear...

Re: Building a Bug Out Cart for fun and profit

Any way to lower the panniers? Right now it looks like the are completely above the axle, if you could get part of the weight below the axle that would help with balance.
