Re: Lost Hiker in Hawaii Found, Search Continues for Common Sense

She broke her leg and tore a meniscus. But only after three days of wandering. In her defense (can't believe I'm defending any aspect of her experience), in dense forest an untrained person will walk in circles even when they think they're walking in a straight line. Of course rule number one is th...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

You're lucky...I tried to go to my local outdoor range and it was closed because all the rain over the last week or so (on top of an extremely wet fall and winter) has turned everything to mud out there. First the Russians engage in info ops during the election. Then they send raputitsa to Texas. W...

Re: Flooding in Houston - May 2019

The other big thing more development does is cover up dirt with pavement and buildings - i.e. non-porous surfaces. Which means more runoff going into streams and rivers, instead of soaking in. I live in Brazos County, about 2 hours north of Houston metro, between the Brazos and Navasota rivers. We'v...

Re: Projection of extended blackouts for CA this summer

The power shut downs will be to wild fire prone areas during times with high winds. This after the Camp Fire last year was caused by wind taking down a transmission line, causing sparks in a dry area. Urban areas aren't generally wild fire prone. Now, if transmission lines from power plants TO urban...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

They've got 1000 rounds of American Eagle 5.56 55gr with 10 PMags for $359.99 at the moment.

No idea what kind of a deal that is, since I don't know the going price for AE 55gr.

Re: Zombie Baby

If a pregnant women turns zombie...why would the baby be born at all?

Zombies are dead. Or undead, anyway. But they're not growing/aging/changing, so the baby/fetus would just remain as it was, where it was - inside the mother. At least that's what makes the most sense to me.

Do a web search for "iron harvest." They're still ploughing up shells from WWI by the ton a century later - and may be for another 400 years, by one estimate.

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Most of those old bolters are quite sturdy (especially the Mauser based ones). Of which I prefer the (substitute standard) M1917 to the M1903. (I have 2 of the former)

I bought an M1903A3 from the CMP back when they had them. It's still in the plastic bag, encased in enough cosmoline to survive in a Soviet Russian Siberian arms stash for another 100 years. The two Italian-return M1 carbines I bought were clean and ready to go (except for the rear sight on one of t...

Re: Water Water Everywhere... Flood in LA. End of drought In CA?

And how much of that is self-induced? Lack of new resevior capacity added (basically since Jerry's dad was governor), resevoirs below capacity because of maintenance reasons, and use (dumping) of water for 'environmental' reasons (delta smelt, etc)?

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

That thing's a WEAPON light? A PISTOL light?

Honestly, I'd almost be afraid to use it in a dark building...I'd be afraid of blinding myself.

Hmmm...I also don't see it on the list of lights available for Safariland holsters (what I use at work). Wonder if it will fit in a TLR-1 holster?
