Re: Put Your Key Fob in the Microwave

I've wondered how close they have to be to do stuff like this. Even my motorcycle uses a fob now, bike won't even try to turn on unless my fob is within a few feet of it.

Re: Exterior Door Security

You should read up on common burglaries. A lot of homes are broken into from the front/side door, or a forced ground floor window. In the case of apartments, the issue of limits on how much you can do to the door/windows is a big reason for break-ins. 2 things you may want to do; if permitted to do...

Exterior Door Security

Leaving the apartment today, went to lock the deadbolt and realized I grabbed my office keys and not the apartment keys, locked myself out of the apartment, nice. The lock had been getting a bit hard to open so I'd been meaning to replace it anyway, so I went and bought a new door handle, swung by w...

Mine is actually a synthetic stock, I'll have to put it on the scale at work sometime but it's super light. ETA: Bud's Gun Shop has it at 2.66 lbs https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/78642/Firearms/Rifles/Savage/Savage+Rimfire/Savage+RASCAL+22LR+Youth+GREEN+Bolt+Action

Re: Take down or traditional

I picked up a Savage Rascal on sale for around $120 last year, partly for my younger kid to have something to shoot, and partly thinking it'd be a decent pack/survival gun. I think the ruger pistols are ideal, but I liked the price and simplicity of a single shot bolt action.

Re: Pickled Eggs & Sausage

Well we blew through both jars of eggs and sausage in no time. Didn't think to take pictures but I wanted to try something spicier, so I did a new batch of just eggs in half and half white vinegar & Frank's with about a quarter cup of dried onions. Only did abount a dozen eggs this go around just to...

Re: How have your preps evolved?

When I first got into the prepper mindset, I was single & fantasized about the lone wolf mad max apocalypse lifestyle. I bought cool gear I didn't need, most of which I've since sold off or traded, and had a laughable food storage setup. Since then I've gotten married, had a kid with another on the ...

Re: Vehicle Headrest Storage

Honestly with as many other small storage options that the majority of vehicles have, placing anything in or around the headrest seems unnecessary. If you have a small pouch like the above posted it would be just as simple to place it under a seat, in the trunk, the glove box, etc... I don't see how...

Re: Pickled Eggs & Sausage

I'd wondered if that would work. We go through German pickles pretty regularly, and the jar always has a lot of left over juice/spices in it. I'll have to chuck some eggs in next time we finish up a jar and see how it goes. This whole batch is pretty much gone, brought the non-onion jar to work and ...

Re: Pickled Eggs & Sausage

In the fridge without canning they'll last for 3-4 for months, from what I'm reading online canned eggs if stored properly will last 6-months to a year. I doubt these will last a month, so I haven't looked into long term storage (don't have a canning set up).

Pickled Eggs & Sausage

I bought a jar of pickled eggs a few weeks ago on a whim, and discovered I love them, and so does my little 3 year old. However the jar of 6 eggs was almost $5, so I thought I'd try it myself on the cheap. I have a co-worker that was interested in trying some, and he hates onions with a passion, so ...

I want to be excited for this game, but Fallout 4 was such a bore, and this doesn't look much different, co-op aside. The giant monster sloth looks interesting, but yeah, I'll take a wait and see.
