Re: Eye Glasses & recomendations

I would definitely recommend a ballistic set in paratrooper frames. Simple rugged no arms to break.

Re: Freezing Water supply?

When Irma was rolling in last year I stuffed my deep freeze with gallon Ziploc bags half filled with water. I intended it as cheap insurance against my generator failing, and as it turned out I was able too keep a couple of less fortunate friends stocked with ice.

Re: Securing Sliding Glass Doors

Trick for keeping sliding doors from being removed from the rail. Drill and tap a 1/4 inch hole into the rollers just beneath the rail, then drive in bolt at least as long as the rails width.

Re: challenge: help me curb my problem tunneling moles....

Moles were a real problem when I lived in the puget sound, tried everything poison traps etc. only thing I found that worked was those vibrating stakes that drive them away and even then they have to be less then ten feet apart.

I know for a fact that he has firearms in his house. I have reported him to both the local PD and ATF, only to be told: "T...

Re: I think I'm in love

Hmm...model number 556, chambered in 7.62x39. Seems a little odd to me, but whatever. Looks kinda cool. Any idea on pricing? If I have to ask, I guess... SIG 556 Chambered in 7.62x39 and using AK mags instead of AR mags. For those not familiar with it the SIG is best described as the bastard love c...

More Accurate than a standard Ak though, and without the stigma that is attached to AK's in many peoples minds.

Re: Nissan with a 5.0 Cummins?

I stand corrected they changed the specifications as of Aug 12 to 240 hp 425 lb ft and 28 mpg. Still better than anything else in its class. Although from private testing of the JGC with the same engine I think they are bieng overly conservative with the fuel numbers. http://www.allpar.com/news/inde...

Re: Driveway chain or cable?

A 24 inch deep ditch 24-36 inches wide will stop anything other than a dedicated trail rig cold, and can be bridged without great effort using either wood or metal depending on how much work you want to put into it.
