Re: My experience with military rations

Yeah MREs are not very good, haha! I do like their comparative light weight and low "trash factor" compared to the canned rations. I wish you could get the Polish W-Rations over here, they look like a great MRE upgrade. Condensed milk tube is also a great thing, I think some more modern Russian rati...

Re: Price of Ammo

Problem is I need Remington Golden Bullets :( The Advantage Arms slide was easy enough to feed when I could find those, but it won't cycle other shit and now I can't even use it. Weird. Golden bullets are the only thing I've tried that my AA 17-22 kit won't cycle. Got some other suggestions for me?...

Re: The All Purpose AK Thread

Greetings all! So, I'm extremely new to the AK world. My AK is a WASR-10 that I picked up last November... and I haven't even fired it yet. *hangs head in shame* Anyway, I'm thinking of putting my Trijicon RMR on it via this MI AK mini dot mount . What do y'all think about that kind of setup? Feedb...

Snacks :lol: And batteries, Leatherman Wave, a sharpie, and occasionally a rite-in-the-rain notebook. But yeah, mostly stuff like Energy Gu and Airheads for a quick sugar boost if I am crashing.

Re: AAR - carrying the G26

I'm 125+/- lbs and have a 28-30" waist and I regularly carry a Glock 17 with the Blade Tech Phantom and can conceal it with just a t-shirt. I'm sure the 26 is easy to carry but that doesn't mean you have to leave the 17 at home either. With stiff belt and a good IWB holster you can carry a lot more...

I know we don't have a dedicated load bearing gear chat thread, so I figured this might be the closest thread. I'm looking for a grey admin or small utility pouch and a grey hydration carrier. Sadly Blue Force Gear, HSGI, don't offer these items in grey. I guess I should go look at Maxipadition? I ...

Re: Kel Tec Sub 2000 9mm Carbine

Try finding a Sub-2000. They are really hard to get now. I did have one in .40 that was really fun to shoot, sold it, might pick one in 9mm up if I ever find one again for a reasonable price. And over $400 is not reasonable. Fun little carbine, IMO it's the only PCC that actually makes sense.

Lock all of them in cases, ammo separate. Stop for gas in PA. Do not stop again until in VT. Drive as low-key as possible.
Radar detector and cruise control on or below the speed limit.

Unless you are hunting birds the carbine does everything and more. I am selling my shotgun since I have no use for it and I don't like to shoot it.
