Re: Glock 19 Gen 4 vs Gen 5?

Every one of my pistols has one on it. I love the fuller grip it gives. Same here, my hands run on the larger size and the little extra fill from the grip, the textured rubber, and finger grooves they fit my hand much better that factory stock. I'm also real happy with the different size back strap...

Re: Glock 19 Gen 4 vs Gen 5?

FWIW if you like the finger grooves on Glocks the Hogue Handall may interest you. https://www.hogueinc.com/grips/handall I put one on my Gen 1 Glock 22 when I first bought it and loved it, felt like the gun was glued to my hand. It was in 92 and think it was named Grip All at the time but their curr...

Re: Freezing Water supply?

Yep it's a good idea and it will keep your stuff frozen for many days longer than without them. The old school way was to line the bottom of your freezer with the regular or large ice cube bags from gas stations ect. Your milk jugs should work fine, the reason the ice bags were used was because they...

Re: Life-saving items to keep in your car in case of winter emergency

Food and water is pretty easy tbh. Like I posted above plastic water bottles that won't burst when frozen. For food you need stuff not affected by high and low temps like Peanut butter/Cheese cracker packs, corn nuts, beef jerky, potato chips, peanuts, ect ect. I used to have a job that had one hour...

Half tank of gas MINIMUM : Even stuck you can run the engine periodically for heat as long as you have gas. Multiple gloves and hats: Layering for the win. Winter jacket: What you're wearing doesn't always equal an appropriate jacket for sitting in stuck vehicle + Layering again. Thick Blanket: You'...

Re: Three season tent recommendations?

I don't have a specific tent to recommend but will chime in about tent features to look for when buying a tent. You can buy a good inexpensive tent if it has the right features and it will last for years if you take care of it. Floor material: Should be a material like a thin tarp and extend up the ...

More expensive but infinity options are 1 Use your home solar set up to power standard 220 pump or you ...

Re: Ka-Bar TDI 2484 "Master Key" Fixed Blade Tool

Looks kinda gimmicky tbh. Seems it does a few things, but none of them well. As a prybar its too short, light, and flat to be of real benefit. "Axe-like edge" says to me it's not real sharp to begin with and again, it being too short and light it will take forever to chop anything. I don't see any r...

Re: How much Zippo equals how many Bics?

Just buy both. See I have all the answers. :crazy: LOL! Ya. I think for just hiking or backpacking take Bics. But for a BOB or INCH put both a Bic and a Zippo. Handy tip? I always stuff extra flints under the insert padding. Check on them every 6 months or so though. I think they can get damaged lo...

Re: How much Zippo equals how many Bics?

I'd say carry both. Zippo's will burn many other fuel sources beyond lighter fluid as long as your flints hold out. Might not burn other fuel sources, surprising list of stuff they will use, real clean but they will burn it. Something to think about as Bics eventually run out of fluid. As a bonus yo...

Re: Storing food in hot/humid climate

Hate to say it but 2 liters are just a terrible idea. Properly stored rice should still be good for 30 years or thereabouts. Even given your temperature problem you should be good for 10 years or so. AND there's probably no chance your 2 liters will hold up that long. So you'll just end up wasting t...

Re: Storing food in hot/humid climate

Welcome to the forums :D Your biggest problem is storage to be honest. Best storage conditions are cool and dry, the opposite of your situation so that should be looked at first. Some type of root cellar/cooler box in the ground is probably your best bet for storage in your conditions. You'll have t...
