Re: lighters - a basic discussion

Another lighter I recommend is the Aomai AM127. Design wise, its based on the classic Windmill outdoor survival lighter, but slightly larger. While Windmill lighters are known for their "invisible" windproof jet flame, the Aomai uses a catalyser screen that is lightly coated in a chemical like stro...

Re: Which Shotgun, Rifle and Four Wheel Drive?

For a rifle I think my first choice, for survival and all that might come for an uncertain time into the future, would be a 7.62x51 Galil. https://www.sturmgewehr.com/bhinton/Galil/Galil_7.62ARM.jpg https://s3.amazonaws.com/mgm-content/sites/armslist/uploads/posts/2016/09/13/5895906_06_imi_galil_mo...

Re: Soft bear bags?

I did not see it on the updated list, but I think that list is just additions for new products this year. For REI to still be selling it, it should still meet all requirements. I may have issues with some of the pricing REI does, but they don't tend to offer low quality. They stand by every product...

Re: Deployment to the southern border

Where will she be staying? If it's private or commercial quarters say an apt or hotel room. Is there regs that say she can't have a firearm there? IIRC you can send a firearm to yourself. As long as it's legal on both ends. I'd think most border states (besides cali) would have fairly lenient gun l...

Re: Hobo stoves for scout fires.

I busted out my smaller knock off woodgas stove (thrift store find) the other day, lots of potential but I need more practice, it was easier to smother then I thought but still easy to revive with a few puffs. I have larger Solo stove (maybe the same as OP's?) but it was also bought second hand and...

Re: Soft bear bags?

First review from the OP's link I used the S29 Ursack on a trip on the Colorado Trail. I purchased the "odor proof" bags for use as well. The one night I could not find a limb to hang it from I tied it securely to the trunk of a tree, following the manufacturer's directions. During the night a bear...

Bigger gas stove burners?

I have a cheap gas stove. And I want to be able to cook on my 15 inch cast iron skillet. But the burner is so small it only heats up the center of the skillet. Is there anyway to widen a burner? Drill out the holes? Replace it with a fitting that spreads out the flame more? Any ideas? https://i.imgu...

Not sure if any of you are into LED headlight upgrades. But everyone on my Jeep forum is raving about these Trucklight knockoffs. Trucklights are the high end led headlight. That generally run several hundred dollars. These knockoffs are supposedly about 99% as good. And they only cost $99 in a 7 i...

On a trip to NM to visit family, I made a sorta-test-run with my Suburban (also avoided paying for a room). With the back seats folded down (third row is sitting in my basement), I aired up a twin air mattress in the back. It was quite warm, but a fan made it bearable. There was still plenty of roo...

Big padded rifle case $29.99. OD Green or ACU. These may be VooDoo tactical seconds but I'm not sure. This is my local surplus store. Great deals. And quality products. They're owned by Voodoo Tactical.
