Excellent choice! I really like the shoulder straps and yoke design on the RUSH series of packs.

I think you'll be happy with the 12 over the 24, for EDC purposes...

Re: Lights Out

I was all excited to talk about lights out, by DAVID CRAWFORD, until i realized you were talking about a different book.

Re: You can only choose one not ideal gun in Alaska.

The point was you can only get one, let's say the lake is to deep for you to dive and make it back up. I'll take the Smith&wesson. Just for the time being as since the plane is close to shore it shouldn't be too deep underwater. I can return to retrieve the other guns and gear at my leisure Kobayas...

Re: So I made another plate carrier

Sweet!

$30 bucks in materials, how many "hours of love" did you labor through do you estimate? Time or money, spend one!

I really like the streamlined built-in mag carrier idea, props!

Re: You can only choose one not ideal gun in Alaska.

I'm choosing the historic knife on a stick and going out with a bang. Figure this is my best chance to make a furry creature bleed if I'm locked in mortal combat, a la "the grey."

Re: Talk me out of it

I have both a 7 round tactical (25077) and express bird/deer combo (25578) here at the house. The tactical runs fine on 00 buck and slugs, but chokes on cheap wbb. Newer 870s choking on wbb is well documented online. The 6 round magazine tube also prevents barrel swaps, as this model has a proprieta...

Re: They Ate My Peanut Butter

Just checked my PB stash. Currently sitting at 4 jars. Grew up on PBnJ sandwiches. I remember making a high school science class video about the noble gasses, where, in a "commercial break", we consumed large amounts of pb and turned into superheroes. Coincidentally, and a complete accident on our p...

Any rush 12 owners able to reccommend a good fitting bladder for the hydration pocket? I run a 70 ounce camelbak omega bladder and it fits great. 25 bucks or so for just the bladder. The 24 has the same size water compartment. If I wanted my 100 ounce camelbak i would have to throw that in the main...

Re: Enlisting at 30?

We had the oldest recruit in our company when i went to boot camp in 05. He was 28 at the time. 30 isn't too old, but 40 sure is. I'd enlist before you forget about it for a few years and get too old and lose the opportunity. You won't make a whole lot of money doing weekends in the guard, but there...

Re: How To Defend Your BOL with a Small Group for Dummies

Should our group of dummies specialize on individual aspects of daily operations at the deer lease, or should we be generalizing the skill sets of our motley crew? If we have guards for defense, scouts out on patrol, the company cook, maybe an LP/OP or two, and then finally the leadership positions ...

Re: Improving Cab Insulation

I am sure the closed cell foam kits used to control sound and road noise have insulating properties. I have installed rubberized aluminum matting in my door skins to control noise a few years ago. I hear CC foam products work much better than "dynomat" type solutions.
