Re: Best Hand-Held CB??? Help please.

I agree with utilizing what you've got on hand. I think a mobile CB is good for road trips, especially if you want to be able to take it from car to car with ease. You can talk to truckers and find out about any bad weather in your vicinity, accidents, and police traps. With a handheld you're lookin...

Re: Best Hand-Held CB??? Help please.

If you're wanting a handheld that is going to be worth anything in some sort of post apocalyptic scenario you're going to have to have a backpack hooked up with about a 6 foot antenna. If you're lucky and live in a flat state with good long range visibility (nothing blocking your view) that might ge...

Re: Mossberg 702 Plinkster

I just bought the 702 plinkster about a week ago, and it is my first gun. I bought the Bushnell 4x32 scope from walmart for $29.99 which makes the overall look 100% nicer. Fired off my first shots tonight. Ammunition I'm using is the cheap federal .22 hollow point 36 grain ($20 for 550 rounds at wal...

I usually just boil a few chicken breasts with a bunch of different seasoning. Mostly Italian, crushed red peppers, normal pepper, and lots of salt (to taste of course). Then chop up any types of vegetables I have in the fridge and pantry, usually celery, carrots, and potatoes are the main. Add them...

S&W Bullseye Knife?

Does anyone know anything about this knife? It seems fairly decent for the money. Was just wanting to know if anyone here owned one, and if it was worth grabbing for the money?
