Re: What was your first pistol?

British Enfield No 2 MK I in .38 S&W. Cost of $25.00 back when. Great little round. It does not have a hammer spur, so it might have been a tanker model. I still have it. I hate to guess how many rounds I fired through it. Reloading saves a bunch of money.

Re: The Pirate: Ar chambered in 5.45x39

I really like that round. It is a lot of fun to shoot. Looks like a great deal. I would have jumped on it. I have two AK74s, one Polish the other Russian. It is my favorite fun round for plinking.

Re: Passed Technician!

11M or CB is still important where I live, especially if one is in the logging business or travel on logging roads.

I have my truck set up to switch HF to CB pretty easy.

Re: My anytone TERMN-8R broke :(

Maybe see if you can get a new screen. Find a use on Ebay that the screen is ok and maybe something does not work as rub the parts needs. Could be a great learning experience on repair.

Re: Vacuum sealing questions re: stew meat

A lot of the newer Food Savers have separate settings for moist food and dry food, from what I understand. Perhaps that could have something to do with it? I just ordered mine and haven't had a chance to use it, but that would be my first guess. ^^^ we use ours a lot. Also you can marinate and add ...

Re: A Good Idea...

IMHO, depending on where I am, there are more viable and simpler options for water filtration and sanitizing. Then there is old school method if you are in the wilderness.

Basic concept seems OK.

Re: Everyone with a gasoline powered backup generator, follo

Part of consideration, maybe, is if you are out can some one share some fuel with you. I had a 500 Gallon propane tank, until it was just too costly to keep and operate propane. It is difficult to go to a friend and barrow a gallon of propane. But with a good size propane tank that would never be a ...

Re: Everyone with a gasoline powered backup generator, follo

One aspect is PLAN AHEAD. Too many people wait for something to happen to prepare for it. Also what you have, use it wisely. Also helps to have alternatives to electrical appliances. Learn to live simple.

Re: What's with the availability of .22 ammo?

The other side of the problem is that if manufacturers spend money to increase production of .22 to match current demand, the demand would start to fall because many people would then stop stockpiling; they would go back to buying a brick at the store only when they were almost out or were about sh...

My issue is that fictional literature is just that. I don't think for many people survival is a simple issue, there are other aspects. For a narcissistic sociopath, there is only one choice.
