Re: How Close Are We to Another Financial Crisis?

Vox is a heavily political site. That being said asking 'experts' about a crash I find a bit amusing. 2008 was seen by very few people so it is probably fair to characterize it as a Black Swan type event - what are the odds the next crisis is also a Black Swan -aka something we can't see until it hi...

Re: Three season tent recommendations?

ALPS Mountaineering makes very sturdy 3 season free standing tents, the side entrance design prevents you from climbing over others and the rain fly design provides a vestibule for boots and packs. Added bonus, if you have a son or daughter involved in a Scouting program you get a very nice discoun...

Re: Spec Ops - RECON RUCK ULTRA TACTICAL RUCKSACK $44.50!

Will give acknowledgement they seem to have been able to resolve the issue today...PayPal email acknowledging the refund came through so that should be good - frustrating it took so long.

Re: Spec Ops - RECON RUCK ULTRA TACTICAL RUCKSACK $44.50!

Want to recommend to all ZS users to not purchase from this company. They have yet to refund me successfully on the bags I attempted to order (which were out of stock) and their customer service has been shockingly bad.

AmmoSeek works well for me. It aggregates prices from other sites.

Re: The Coming Civil War

my local Walmarts still hide the .22lr ammo under the counter. If you ask, it's there, but they clearly dont want you buying it by the 5000 rd case. 6c per round is a lot more reasonable than 16c a round, that much is certain. I'll keep voting for Republicans for that reason alone, even tho I've st...

Thanks for the comments all.

Elk Scouting Trip

RonnyRonin and I have a friend with an Elk tag and are thus invested in doing what we can to get us meat via his rifle skills. Unfortunately our friend couldn't make it so we set off ourselves. I had gained some intelligence from an accomplished bowhunter I know about the area who advised us to trav...

Re: I have a question

I bought a Ruger 10/22 new about two and a half years ago, in an attempt to get into shooting. However, just after I bought it, I moved to where I live now, and I was so busy with school that I never got a chance to enroll in the local gun club. Now, I am finally in a position to get that membershi...

Great stuff!

I need to retry pickled eggs I think...last time I had one was part of an initiation drink that involved whiskey as well.

How long will they keep if properly sealed? Indefinitely?

So far I've only missed 1 rifle match this year (they run once a month) and am slowly seeing improvement. I started off with a rifle I'd never zero'd and panicked about hitting steel at any realistic distance and finishing either dead last or in the bottom 5. This match I had two fuck-ups a Miss and...
