Re: Blackdog sighting off

Be well brother, spare a thought for those of us who wish we knew you better because we grieve not for you but for ourselves, as your absence makes our selfish little hearts know that we don't get to be in the presence of one of the good ones. On our part we will speak of who you are, have been, and...

Re: Odd Preps: The things you can't live without

I also have probably a lifetime supply of those flossing heads you can clip onto a flosser thing like a toothbrush, but that was more because the minimum quantity to buy online was like 300 of them. Only 300?!?! Pffff...neophyte :lol: But seriously, those things are the only way I can properly get ...

I second the Grom assessment. Looks like a fun grocery getter though, that is if you aren't too tall or heavy. I am neither (one of the advantages of being from 3rd World Stock :lol:) and it does look that it would be a blast to take on 'pavement optional roads'. Love the location of the racks, but...

Hey I just picked up 1k of m193 for $260 (.26 per round) it's also not steel case stuff, its actual brass. .223 is still rather affordable to shoot, but now that the panic has gone down over .22 might be time to look at getting that trainer. 91Eunozs, Don't forget that unfortunately sometimes short...

Re: Kidney warmer/Wool Back Warmer To Stay warm in cold weat

The German military apparently issued something similar in WW2 and the Bundeswehr kept that going after the war -- At the Front sells surplus Bundeswehr ones for $3.00 (plus s/h). I haven't looked, but I'm guessing they must exist on eBay and other places as well. http://www.atthefrontshop.com/Prod...

The other PITA thing is the tent color. If you are going for a bug out tent you want subdued earth tone colors and nothing crazy bright and loud, that is going to drop your options down a bit more. Eureka has plenty of green options, but their green might stick out like a sore thumb in the desert t...
