That looks like it could be painful to get shot with, you might just piss something off and it will kill you. :wink:

Re: Scout Rifle, or...

OK, a few issues:

-You're about a year late to the thread!
-You have a very nice rifle, looks good!
-Scout rifles suck at everything but being a scout rifle.

Hopefully NP got himself a lightweight fighting rifle that he can also hunt with.

Re: whats your opinion on a folding saw.

I've used folding saws before, though not that particular one.

Found them to not be as effective as a bucksaw.

This is the one I used for the last few years.

Re: What's your effective range?

In my area the longest range available is 300m. so I can hit at 300m because that's all I practice. And frankly, that not very often. The SD scenarios I am 99% sure I'll encounter will be in and around my suburban home. There will be no shots at 1000m, so not too worried about keeping those skills s...

Re: Family Defensive Plans

I've had many a discussion with people who are less shall we say, pro-active, as I am. They have taken the position that 'things' are not worth anyone's life, so they would not fight, but run/hide. On a couple levels I agree with them. If they don't have the means/training then don't try to engage. ...

Re: Rat Rod / Mad Max Ithaca 16 gauge shotty suggestions

Spray it with some brown paint, let dry about 15min. Then tie to the bumper of your car and drag it down an unpaved road for 1 mile.

Knock off the crusties and call it done.

Wow, first time this has ever come up...... A search will turn up many threads about shotguns for SD. A perusal of said threads will reveal I'm a proponent of said shotguns.

And another thing...

Whats up with the watchtower being outside the wall in the first place!?

Really?

You have to go outside of the wall to get into the watchtower? Which means it is hard to defend and can be taken over and used to snipe into the town?
