Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

Living in a state that has has mail in ballots for 20+ years, and sighting all sorts of independent studies on our ballots and voting fraud it’s been found that it’s nearly non exestanft. Sure someone who’s recently expired may get one, but upon counting and verification it’s voided. My ex worked in...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I'll just say that I built one with an Alexander Pro Fab lower and and complete Aero upper, including BCG, only a Radian Raptor charging handle, and everything fit together fine, and it runs fine with both PMC 7.62 NATO and Freedom .308. Just need to get the scope zeroed now. That’s apparently the ...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

Built my first AR10, apparently I didn’t read enough about these lil bastards. There are like 3 standards out there. Luckily most seem to be in the lower and not the rest of the platform. PSA upper, can’t remember bbl, wish guard, Areo lower, BCM bolt carrier, knock off charging handle, and PSA low...

Re: Devolution: A Firsthand Account of the Rainier Sasquatch Massacre

I picked this up a few days ago from Amazon for $16.99 and finished it in a day and a half. It was pretty slow for the first few chapters, but quickly got interesting and stayed that way. It ends on a bit of a cliffhanger that makes you want to see how it continues... The whole premise of the book ...

Re: Seattle: The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone

I can see no one has read any news stories from an outside non national news source.

Seattle times and the police both retracted...

Cops ran out of gas and were running low on flag bangs. The border up the east precinct and told the media they wouldn’t abandon it, 2 hours later they abandoned it. After the cops left protesters swarmed the building and spray painted over police and wrote “peoples”. The protests last night were th...

I’m so jealous of all that flat land! Looks amazing! Sorry about the loss of the chickens. We have a nesting pair maybe 2 of red tailed hawks on the property and I worry if we get chickens, that’ll be the fate. I prefer free range to let them take care of pests around the garden. Hope you have a hug...

I've heard good things about the Pelican cases knockoffs Harbor Freight sells. I don't have one myself, though.
Can confirm, they are probably the same as pelicans or same factory. They work fantastic.

Thanks, Halfapint....... Something else I just thought of....how do cellphones work overseas? Without buying a super expensive SAT phone, could I not take a crap old phone and put an African SIM card in? Check which network they have down there and buy a cheap (probably android) compatible.

Re: Namibia trip- N/a an kuse wildlife sanctuary

Can’t help with the sharp pointy stuff or what not. But working for an airline I have some insight into that side. I would first look at the route they are flying. Check the airports and see if they have any restrictions due to COVID. As far as traveling, make sure they have a carry on bag with all ...

I’ve been using some Hitech (sp) boots for working on the property they are hands down some of the best boots I’ve had as far as comfort. Almost zero break in period, and they’ve last 2 years of hard, HARD work. I took them hunting last fall and they were not water proof unfortunately. I’m sure I co...

Returning member here. For several years I merely lurked and listened. ZS has always been a good reference. I am looking for a good source of printable maps. Something suitable for brushing up on my land navigational skills. GPS is a valuable tool but to me just one of many in the tool box. Welcome!

We had more roosters than we needed. Put off butchering them since at fall they were still pretty small and then during the winter they didn't cause much trouble. Now that it's been warming up it's become a constant brawl so we butchered two of them today. One other is going to a friend of the fami...
