Another vote for Marmot precip. FYI I had a zipper malfunction on my first after like 5 years of heavy use. Marmot replaced entire jacket free of charge.
Really? That's impressive. I have a MArmot tent. HAd no idea there warranty was so good. You just send it back directly to them?

Colt Firearms AR15 LE6920-OEM2 Black .223 Rem/ 5.56 16.1-Inch 30Rd No Furniture $670. Probably the best way to get into a quality AR. The lowest price I've ever seen myself is $650. But that was spring summer 2017. You add furniture yourself. Which you probably want to customize anyway. Colt makes a...

Re: Shooting at Pittsburgh Synagogue Leaves at Least 4 Dead

We definitely need more mental healthcare in America. But some people are beyond retribution. In cases like this where it's obvious who committed such a despicable crime. They should be put to death. It's not always this simple though. To many people have been wrongfully put on deathrow too. Not an ...

Anyone else watching the fights tonight? I was watching college ball and then the series. Only so much time in the day for TV watching. TBH, I prefer watching boxing over MMA. The boxing rules are pretty static and easier to follow. The strategy and action is easier to track as well. Of course I gr...

Re: Most Effective School of Martial Arts

I am going to agree that Krav is right up there near the top. My memory says the original MMA, in the very beginning, they had very few rules and the people who dominated were people who used small joint locks to gain pain compliance. From what I recall BJJ dominated the early years and GRW was not...

Re: FREE and EASY way to post photos with Imgur on ZS.

If you choose "Linked BB Code" it makes the image here clickable so someone could go and see the full-size image. I'll adjust accordingly. Thanks. Does it set back up as automatically large thumbnail after you set it? I'm gonna test it. EDIT - it works. Once you've selected large thumbnail you don'...

Re: Halfapint's Getting Some Land

Also Imgur coupled with the imgur chrome extension allows you to simply right click on any photo and you can automatically upload it to your imgur acct.

Re: Building a basic hand-tool kit!

If I am, then allow me to be the first second to suggest that no basic hand tool kit is complete without at least a set of 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" ratchet wrenches and a broad assortment of standard and deep wall SAE and metric sockets. And socket extensions. And universal joints. Ahem... This is all i...

New trailer for the tractor. I loaded it up with 4 large seasoned maple rounds, and it didn’t even stress. Thinking...

And for the 1000th time I'm finding nothing but those 1960's modern era looking hard shell and rain jackets made for the torso length of a 5th grader! It's been going on for a while too.
