Re: RationalWiki

Well that sucks. This references Argentina. Several things pop in my head in response. 1) Some American survivalists have their act together and would be rather hard targets. 2) Many Americans probably think they are hard targets and in fact, they are not. 3) RELATIONSHIPS MATTER!!! PROXIMITY TO NE...

Re: RationalWiki

The zombie apocalypse, though this one is admittedly more of a spoof or a thought experiment (usually). Some survivalists and preparedness groups (such as the Zombie Squad[12]), while not seriously believing in zombies, use a hypothetical zombocalypse as a benchmark for survival, the theory being t...

Holy thread necro batman! Plans changed, met a girl, got married, spawned, etc... I did end up moving to Idaho but just recently and we're living in an apartment.

Re: New Car/SUV/Truck

After talking with the GF we both settled on a truck. Drove all the diesels on the market; Nissan, Ram, Ford, and Chevy. Went into it knowing that I have a bias in favor of Ford. The Nissan was nice but no one knew anything about it, they couldn't answer basic questions. The guy was in the back goog...

Wow! That is stunning. And I have to call BS on the brace. I have a friend who jokes about braces and how they are really SBRs. That one in the pic looks like it really is a stock. It does not look like it could even function as a brace. I like shorter guns, but try not to get stupid, people. No ne...

Re: CR123 Batteries

I bought my rechargabkes from battery junction. They are light blue/green. They work great, don’t last as long as the non rechargeables, but they do well enough. I have have kept a pair in my weapon light for the last 3 years. I only just had to recharge them.

My second...err executor ... yeah ... my executor is in charge of details like that. He has a sense of humor. No telling what will be available. He may also pass them out unloaded with a big bowl of mixed ammo...so chose wisely.😁 https://media.tenor.co/images/89a7bbe456858497fc80099afebe978f/raw

Sounds like the makings of an excellent shooting range.
I the quarry is still owned by the bank. I don't even want to know how much they want for the land, its big though.

GF had a couple days off and was really wanting to do something, I'd been showing her how to use the tractor so she said she wanted to go up and get more done. We still had the hole to fill, trees to drop and some other work. She's great with a chainsaw (you can see her in the picture with the downe...

Re: New Car/SUV/Truck

If you're really interested in the Ranger or the Bronco, you might consider buying an interim vehicle just to last you until they're released and you can buy what you're actually interested in. To that end, it might make sense to look at used vehicles which hold their value well, like a Toyota or S...

Was talking with my buddy last night and I think I may just go over my budget a little. I was looking at the new Nissan Titan with the new V8 Cummings diesel.

What...... I didn't get a pic of a 4x4 Lada form Twizzler?!?!?! Actually I like wagons and hatchs. I hadn't considered a Volvo, something I may have to check out. I do a lot of camping and drive a lot on dirt roads and trails.
