Re: How to discuss terrorism without breaking Rule #7?

Suggestion one: Call terrorists "Terrorists" and leave it at that. You want to talk about how to respond to an incident? awesome. Walk to talk about how to keep the world free from terrorists? This is probably not the place to do that. This. We're not about pointing fingers or finding the root caus...

How to discuss terrorism without breaking Rule #7?

Maybe the mods can help me us out with this. ZS is a survival and prepping forum where (besides zombies) we discuss "SHTF" events in the world that could threaten our safety and how to prepare for it. I hate to harp on this, but here is Rule #7 7.) No debating of politics or religion. To help discou...

Re: How \ Where do you store your magazines?

Since I'm moving soon, I've been going over my storage options and trying to better organize. What I have been storing all my ammo and shooting/outdoor gear in is Steralite (or similar brand) storage totes. The ones I bought have locking handles and are cool tacticool tan colored and are designed t...

Re: Avian Flu in USA

Let me blow some dust off this thread. While checking a yahoo E-mail account that I use as a dump E-mail, I noticed out of the corner of my eye the top 3rd and 4th trending searches were Egypt bird flu and H5N1. Apparently there has been a spike in Bird to Human death there over the last 2 months. A...

Re: VA Sending Veterans’ Mental Health Information to FBI

I know some folks in the ATF and without giving too much away the illegal gun trade have been recently recruiting Vets at VA hospitals in rural gun "friendly" states to be straw purchasers for urban gang bangers in states with tough gun laws. Its kind of sad. They are taking advantage of Vets in dir...

Is the top of the receiver on that shotgun already drilled and tapped. If so just attach a rail.

Re: Is this enough water for a dayhike?

I'm assuming that is a smaller version of a water cooler jug, Maybe 2.5 gallons and hopefully not one that holds 5 gallons.

If it was a full sized 5 gallon water cooler jug, 5 gallons of water is going to weigh about 43lbs and that is not including the plastic jug and all your other stuff. :ooh:

Is it the H&R Pardner Protector or Tactical that looks something like this?

Its a copy of the Remington 870, so some of the accessories that fit on the 870 may fit on the that H&R pump shotgun.

Re: The meats most wont eat thread.

Don't forget insects and other bugs. Eating insects can be a much better protein source than hunting and trapping mammals and birds. Just don't eat them raw, cook insects to kill off any parasites and it makes them a lot more palatable. Good thing about insects is they often take a lot less energy ...

You may want to update that amount to 2015 prices. The days of using just $5 to buy lunch, get a taxi cab ride, or to buy just enough gas to get you home are long gone my friend. I think having four $5 bills will serve you better.
