Re: Angels of Light and Dark

...you got it. Just a couple quick ones for this entry so I'll just post here: Overall awesome...far better than anything I could write, but in general this 2nd entry felt a little rushed and didn't have the depth of the first entry...probably because we rushed you with our cries for MOAR!

Re: New Emergency Vehicle Bag

I have sadly since sold it but I built a vehicle kit for tacoma truck. The "box" for it was wooden panels, that could be easily disassembled and used as traction for the four tires, yes I used it... I destroyed one of the pieces of wood in the process but that was easy to replace, not to mention pre...

MOAR you say? Ok here it is. I won't always be able to post this much but in the hope to keep this moving here is the second installment.

Re: Angels of Light and Dark

Sounds like a winner to me. I heard WWZ mentioned(read it 3x's) as a plot using different people,at first it was confusing but after a while top notch.Either way you go it will be good.

Re: Angels of Light and Dark

As you said, you could do a WWZ style where you write about Micheal, then another survivor, then another, and come back to Micheal and so on and so forth. Or you could just start exploring the gal on comms with Micheal. Perhaps his rescue squad maybe they all go back. This point in the story could ...

This is currently just what it is, a short story. I have some ideas to progress this along if there is interest, yes that involves more zombies than this initial post.

Re: Quickboats

How much work/time goes into manually inflating a inflatable kayak? Are they puncture resistant? I guess as someone with very little experience I have trouble seeing why inflatable is better than panel based? Yes a bad seam or construction sinks you but I'd imagine any small hole in an inflatable wo...

Re: Quickboats

RHIB? They mention a backpack sized option for $800. I think that even at that price it is still too much but I like the idea of small boat that doesn't need to inflated and can stow away to a small area. It's the lack of inflation that I think is unique.

I live 5 mikes from work. But... No sidewalks on this congested road. I would love to participate. Good idea! Sidewalks/schmidewalks.

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

As a new 5.56 shooter and a garrand guy I was thinking of starting to reload. The few local, SoCal, people I have talked to said currently reloading is just as expensive as off the shelf ammo. Any truth to that or is it still cheaper?
