Re: ILBE mods: Cutting the Fat *cracked the 5lb barrier?*

Here's my modified ILBE. I purchased it used on eBay and the first thing I did was wash all the jarhead funk and sand out of it. I then swapped the hip belt for a large to fit my fat ass, replaced all of the elastic strap keepers, and cut off the superfluous stuff like many others (rubber patches, b...

Ghetto chest seals

OK, day off today, so I took a few minutes to play with some contact paper. It's not nearly as sticky as EKG electrodes, monitor pads, or real chest seals, but it's not any worse than the typical alternative (medical or duct tape). Fold back one corner on itself for quick deployment http://i909.phot...

Contact paper = chest seal?

I'm currently pretty solid on medical preps, but still I am always looking for cost-effective ways to stock deeper. I have Halo or ACS in my main kits, but I was thinking that clear, heavy-duty contact paper cut into 8" squares might make for good chest seals for the "mass casualty" bin or for stock...

Re: Portable Range?

I hang my steel targets on 48" garden shepherds hooks....for paper or cardboard targets I clip them to two hooks. A few per year get shot in half, but for $5 each it's no biggie, and I stock up in the spring when they're on sale. https://www.menards.com/main/building-materials/landscaping-materials/...

HT Go Box

I was eyeballing one of those little plastic Federal 120 round boxes last week and decided that it was the perfect size for an HT "go box". The idea is for a small, basic kit that is somewhat protected to be used for hiking and the like. The contents: -Nelson slim jim antenna -30' of mason line on a...

Good point... I passed on CB for this very reason, but I hadn't considered that FRS would be as bad.

I chose the BF-888s because it has no keypad, just a knob to select the channel ;-)

Emergency HTs- what UHF freqs to program?

Hi all. I was looking for something as idiot proof as possible that I can hand out to unlicensed and inexperienced friends/family/neighbors to use around the neighborhood/town in case of emergency/SHTF only. I needed something with better range than FRS so I decided to go with the Beofeng 888s, a 5w...

Re: Bump In The Night Bag

Gurthy and Woods Walker, what do you think is more valuable: a black bag so the bad guys can't see it or a brighter color so you can? I know where I put my shit every night because I put it in the exact same place every time... so black is fine. Black probably appeals to a wider spectrum of people ...

A shorter LOP "regular" stock (ala Houge) would help.
