Re: Phantom Quickdraw

No experience, didn't even know about them until I read your thread. That said, my first question is; how does it do in a collision or roll-over? That’s the kind of answers I’m hoping to get. In our line of work we drive on some pretty rough lease roads and it’d need to hold the gun securely even w...

Phantom Quickdraw

Anybody have experience with the phantom QuickDraw? My boss is looking at them for carrying in the trucks but was wanting some feedback before ordering.

Re: What if yesterday was a normal day. Next day your whole life is world of zombies.

LOL I don't worry about Zombies. I was riding my bike (7/30) and was struck by a truck. Knocked me on my ass, tore up a bunch of body pieces/parts and totaled the bike. I worry about real life situations that come out of left field - and how to handle those. The End of the World as you Know it Toda...

Re: What if you and a friend was in the middle of a zombie outbreak.

I’d point out that I was never that fast when I was young, inshape, and had good functioning joints. Then I’d suggest we arm up, take it slow and sneaky, and increase our chances.

Re: What if you was at a family get together, hour in you see chaos take place.

So I’m at a family get together and a mob of zombies shows up. I’d be torn between getting my hands on weapons to protect family while they reach safety. And tripping certain others to occupy the horde while family makes it to safety. I’m not proud of it but some lives are more important to me than ...

Re: At Work/Things Go Bad (Bangkok Edition) - Version 1

My first thought would be to shelter in place, but with family waiting that’s not an option. Good shoes would be a must. Not necessarily to keep the feet dry but for protection, when wading it’s really easy to step on things you’d normally avoid. Without good protection this could result in cuts (ba...

It's sounds like you have a high risk security job. I suggest looking into something that would stop .338 Lapua. Perhaps duct-taping a second trauma plate to your back in case of repeated hits from a .308.

Your place of work sounds a lot like the place the main characters in 'Lights Out' worked. At least I got Déjà Vu about it when reading your post. Do they have a fuel dump there for the vehicles to fuel up? Yeah I guess it does, I didn’t make that connection until you pointed it out. :lol: Yes we d...

I have a 16 mile commute to work with my brother (we live and work together). So if our vehicle was trashed it’d be a bit of a walk, he has health issues so we probably wouldn’t make good time. Fortunately we most likely wouldn’t have to, our bosses have regularly offered to let us employees borrow ...

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

hmm, I'm using unique in 9mm, looks like it may be decent for .357 as well. I'll have to test some. Unique is indeed a decent powder for .357. It’s a little dirty, but has performed very well for me in target loads. My uncle (and family) shot silhouette competitions in the mid 80s to early 90s and ...

I've seen some good looking designs much like the one Twisted shared on Pinterest. Years ago we got by with saw horses and a pallet (covered with plywood), with two shooters it was easy to move and gave plenty of room.
