Re: Working dogs in the PAW

Very worthy sounding rescue dog needs a job. I suspect " Cane Corso Mastiff Mix" is code for large pitbull, but from the description he sounds like the perfect PAW beasty. Languishing for two years at the shelter that rescued him from a dog hoarder. They're throwing him an adoption push. http://spho...

Useless BOB Items

I will use a special sarcasm indicator next time for those that are not fluent. I believe it was Hiram Grant, in his autobiography (and perhaps the best non-fiction of that Century) that first said it, "An army may fight ON it's stomach, but it fights WITH its eyes." If you ever walk the ground at ...

Re: Useless BOB Items

More in line with the subject though: I've seen people pack small cast iron pans and skillets. "You never know when you might take a deer and need to cook up the venison." It's really hard to get a deer to stay still long enough or get close enough to hit it with a cast iron frying pan. But if you ...

Re: Study finds that guns dont make bear country safer *GRAP

Anywhere there are bears there are folks around to tell you that people get mauled to death by bears that they have shot multiple times in the head and even in the heart.
Its anecdotal sure... but it is conventional bear country wisdom.

Re: Sleeping with a gun under your pillow?

This is a small rant and question. A few months ago my best friend got divorced and lost his job in the same month. He decided to become a truck driver, so he could just live in his truck and make some good quick cash. I let him stay in my guest room on his days off (usually one weekend a month or ...

Re: Bringing a knife to a gunfight- Tueller Drill (21 foot r

So it would be only natural to discuss tactics for dealing with blade attacks. Just having a weapon won't be enough: having a weapon and being smooth and fast on the draw with it will be necessary, but not sufficient. What else do we need to do? best case? already have the gun in your hand, assume ...

Re: Bringing a knife to a gunfight- Tueller Drill (21 foot r

the concealed carry most likely to save your life in a knife fight is to carry your weapon in your hand ready with a small paper bag (sack to some of you) over it. Go for a brown bag, white bags are used by pharmacies and might draw unwanted attention. The same carry is also very useful with an unsh...

Re: Bringing a knife to a gunfight- Tueller Drill (21 foot r

I keep reading these theoretical scenario threads and thinking the same thing. It just doesn't work like that. Virtually nobody stands 21 feet away from you, brandishes their knife menacingly and then on the word go starts charging. (SBCs excepted but they like to give you time to draw and aim) You ...

Re: Method for keeping warm in the wild from Jeremiah Johnso

Firebed type heating tends to be a poor choice if you are using a lot of modern synthetic gear and clothing.
If you are attempting the use of some sort of retro gear... canvas, furs, waddlework, woolens etc... any of your basic 25000BC through 1959AD kit this sort of thing makes some sense.

Re: Jars or Cans?

The advantage of cans over jars is; cans don't break like jars. Cans can handle temperature fluctuations better. Cans are easier to store/stack/transport. Cans keep the contents safe from light. Only thing I can think of that jars are better than cans is you can see the contents and you don't need ...
