Re: The Visor: Stealth Hoodie

Teenagers wear these types of hoodies all the time, they just leave the hood part unzipped so it's like a regular hoodie. They're usually a cheap gimmick like the Star Wars themed versions posted by vahtryn. I kinda doubt anyone has ever been charged for wearing one of these without doing something ...

Re: New show coming June 5th - Americans living off the grid

I think the host's motivation was more wanting to pitch his own bag. http://www.sealsurvival.com/product/go-bag-alpha/ This is the bag he showed, which just so happens to be sold by the company he owns.

Re: The love for crowbars...hate for sledgehammers/axes

Is there a reason not to use a machete? It seems to me like a 22" machete would make a great melee weapon, they're lightweight, have better balance than an axe or hammer and if their use in African genocides is any indicator they have proven efficacy as a man, err zombie, killer.

Re: Mid size or full size

One big benefit to the offroad trailer is you can keep it packed and then when it's time to leave you can hitch it up and go. Good for bugging out or deciding you want to go camping on Friday afternoon. If you don't absolutely need a truck I'd take a look at a 4runner if you can swing the price; a 4...

Re: Entry level bolt rifle?

I have a Ruger American in .308 that I've been very pleased with, but I don't do much in the way of shooting beyond 100 yds and I've heard the thin barrel can affect accuracy, just not a concern for me.

Re: ARES Defense Systems SCR: a 50 state legal AR15 Alternat

I like the looks of it, but the msrp is $850 which puts it in the range of an entry level AR. It better perform better than an entry level AR if it's going to succeed in non-ban states. Also, I wonder if there are any plans to sell the lower without an upper.

Re: Help me decide on what to use for a BOV

I'm going to be different an recommend the VW, it sounds like any of the 3 would get you to your furthest BOL, but what if there isn't space for you? Even if you're welcome they may be out of beds and VW would assure you a bed. It would also be the easiest to live out of long term if it came to that.
