Re: Civilian Concealed Carry vs. Peace Officer

Part-time cop... That's something we don't have in Australia. In fact our cops need to apply to have a second job approved and there is a range of jobs they're outright prohibited from doing as it's a conflict of interest (mainly in industries that are regulated by the police like security, alcohol,...

Re: Ruger 22/45 4 inch or 5.5

Got a MKIII Target with the 140mm (5.5in) bull barrel, it's lovely... not the lightest .22 kicking round and it gets regular use for competitions and I only have problems when I've cleaned it :roll: Gotta clean it, re-lube it then dump about 100 rounds through it to get up to the level of dirty that...

Re: More guns: same calibre or different?

Good point on the rossi .410, I'll look into those. Handloading is common, more common than finding components really. Powder and primers are frequently out of stock. Also I dont have time or space to set up a reloading bench at the moment so underloaded 12g isnt really an option though I do plan on...

Re: Front site idea about ammo in your go-bag.

Even for ammo in the car or at the BOL, stick with .22, 12g or whatever your local police or military uses to increase the chance of it being relevant.

Re: More guns: same calibre or different?

I've got about 17000rounds at the moment, mostly 9mm, .223 and .22LR. Less than 1000 .308 and less than 200 12g. So I need some more .308 and 12g and also .303, I've basically got none.

So having ammo to shoot now isn't a big concern for me right now

More guns: same calibre or different?

To keep this short, you're buying new guns and it's possible to either get a calibre that is the same as an existing gun or choose a new one.

Off that info alone, fewer calibres and therefore commonality or more variety more chance of finding good deals on ammo or it being available?

Dunno about the environment in your area but consider swapping one of the knives for a folding saw. Do you have spare clothing if you get wet? Do you have shelter, firemaking, first aid?

I thought I couldn't, looked into it and didn't correct my previous post.
Think I'd stick with .308 for deer though.

Picked up the 7615 from the shop today. Got 5 pmags but they have the rounds blocker inserts to limit them to 10 rounds and the base plates are glued and melted on. Chest rig for this set up should arrive in the mail tomorrow.

Re: EDC finding the perfect setup

Seems like a pretty balanced EDC. I wouldn't worry too much about the battery life of your watch, then again mine is solar powered so I've forgotten how annoying a dead watch can be. If your higher levels of gear don't have a time-telling device, consider getting a solar powered watch for your BOB o...
