Re: Site Bug Report Thread

NT2C3PO can double check, but the secure/not secure has a lot to do with images. If people link images without http s it'll report as non secure. When you quote or reply, most images are depreciated . :) Fish face speaks the truth. There's a lot of factors that go into making a page "secure". :rofl...

They do ,ale adapters for the stoves to convert over to propane. I have one for my demo stove,
It's just (to me) kinda sketchy as it connects the same way as the liquid does (over the open burner).

Re: This Earthquake Safety Helmet Folds Flat Until You Need It

I wonder if it flattens out if it hit from the top. I get why a helmet is useful but in an earth quake I would be more worried about pancaking floors than falling chunks...though I guess chunks are more likely. ...but it should reduce the chances of injury from things like items falling off of shel...

Re: Have you had to draw your concealed carry, and why?

Only had to pull it once, but made it obvious a few times. I used to do some work as a contractor, and sometimes we would take jobs in the "Not so great" side of town. One of us was ALWAYS carrying. Usually me. I haven't ever had to pull it out, but I've had to tuck my shirt in behind it and make it...

For short hikes, I usually just carry as normal. For longer backpacking trips, I have a condor pouch that threads on my packs waist belt. I've modded the inside to hold my g27 and a spare mag with elastic to keep them in place.
