Re: The rule "NO Politics" is just that a rule. Not a suggestion.

I mostly just lurk anymore, but this is seriously one of the few remaining bastions of political neutrality left. I come here whenever a notable disaster/event has occurred to find the most unbiased reporting just about anywhere online.

Your hard stance is much appreciated.

Anyone know of a timeframe on these? I called around to a few dealers and nobody even knew what it was, lol.

Re: Are we prepared for this?

Our day to day routine has hardly changed thus far. We did an inventory in early February and have stocked up on some snack stuff just to keep the kiddos busy, but otherwise it’s been business as usual. Many of my coworkers, who don’t even really know that I’m a prepper per se, but don’t see me pani...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

SE Idaho - 1 confirmed case a few towns over, another case in the western part of the state. Supplies are fine, but just for kicks and giggles I drove around to check out the shop situation. Went to Home Depot, Natural Grocers, and Albertsons. All stores were cleared out of paper products and any so...

Not new per se, but haven’t been active in a long while. Always pop my head in here when there’s a noteworthy occurrence, you guys are a much better source of non-alarmist info than just about anywhere.

Re: Jack of all trades lever gun.

Re: Jack of all trades lever gun.

Thanks for the input folks. I think 30-30 is the route I’ll go. Wasn’t sure if it was stout enough for bigger game, but it sounds like it can handle anything I’d hunt in my area.

Jack of all trades lever gun.

Been looking at getting a Marlin levergun, for hunting/camping, shtf stuff, and because they’re cool. I know there’s no one round to rule them all, but I’m looking for a gun that won’t blow deer in half, but is also stout enough for larger game, elk and potentially moose. I’ve also had a bear encoun...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Looking at AR pistols at the local shop today, and ended up liking the Daniel Defense MK18 and Sig MCX over everything else they had. Between the two the MK18 was noticeably less bulky, and the price point was similar enough. Anyone have a preference? I'm leaning toward the Mk18, but not sure if the...

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...
