Re: Children's Toys in the EOTWAWKI.

It depends on the age of the kids, of course. I often think that the toys made by the "Green Toys" company would be good. http://www.greentoys.com/shop-page They're very basic and sturdy. I like how simple they are. To some extent, I think that fuels the imagination more than a toy that does everyth...

Re: Compare and how would you survive?

IN the remake of Dawn they send the dog to Andy and he tries to bring it though the dogie door. Uh you can get on the roof and tie some fishing line to an arrow, and shoot it to the other roof. You live in a damn outdoors store. Okay, it has been a while since I've watched it and I don't know a gre...

Re: Compare and how would you survive?

Moved thread to "Zombie Training Films". I'm awfully partial to the 2004 re-make of "Dawn of the Dead." It has been a while since I've seen the original, but if memory serves, there are parts where it kind of lags. Of the three you listed, I prefer the original, 1968 version of "Night of the Living ...

Re: HELP: advice on bolt action carbines/scout rifles

I think we need more information. What is it you want to hunt? How expensive is ammo where you live and is price a factor for you? How much are you willing to spend on the rifle? If it is for hunting, why do want iron sights instead of a scope? When you say that you can't use a gun for defense, does...

Re: Vehicle Kit, what do you put it in?

It has already been mentioned a couple of times in this thread, but I want to reiterate that having gear secured (i.e. strapped down) in your vehicle is extremely important and could save your life. If you're in a wreck, even a relatively low speed one, anything not strapped down becomes a potential...

Re: Critique my BoL Plans

I want to second the idea of having some type of water catchment system. With a tin roof and some filters, you've got a built in renewable source of potable water. It may have a couple of benefits over a well--1) you don't have to worry about the groundwater becoming contaminated and 2)(if it is set...

Re: SKS vs Marlin 330cs

Good point about accuracy. Which one can you shoot better? Take them both out and see how fast you can score a dozen hits with each. I would lean towards that rifle. I would then train and practice with it to deal with any inherent issues. I agree. Neither one is an optimal, but then neither one is...

What motivation? Nobody knows what's on the other side of the computer. It's not uncommon for Bambis (fresh spawns) to do their best to clobber someone in a bout of fisticuffs. A couple punches to the grape can put someone down, and now you can loot their gear while they're down. Grab their weapon,...
