Re: Ridiculously Extreme Thought Experiment on Tech From Scr

cool thread.

how do you find the ore to begin the process of smelting? that'd be a huge stumbling block. while refining iron, at least at a crude, small scale, wouldn't be too hard, finding that stuff could take forever.

Re: Where can a person train?

along with doing a lot of dry fire drills and airsoft, look for an IPSC or IDPA club around. you'll meet a lot of gamers with fancy guns that are fairly impractical, but you'll have an opportunity to shoot on the move, from various positions and cover, and you can always say 'fuck the clock' and be ...

Re: Yourself as a weapon?

I know getting into a stupid bar fight isn't the same as getting mugged or jumped, but there is leaps and bounds differences between a real life scuffle and just sparring. yeah, sparring (if you're in a legit training environment) is way harder. Unless somebody wacks you over the head with a glass,...

Re: Yourself as a weapon?

I think it's pretty telling that the whole "Don't spend too much time in training, because you'll have bad habits when it comes to the real thing" argument is widely accepted as nonsense in every field of human endeavour... until it comes to something few people have a good understanding of, like f...

Re: So, let's figure out how to move my corpse

It's a gruesome option, but I would suggest either rolling you onto a tarp or into a bathtub and cutting your dead ass into manageable pieces. Then she can truck them out one by one in trash bags, bins, or whatever receptacle works best. This, of course, would require the use of a sawzall, hacksaw,...

Re: Yourself as a weapon?

I've studied martial arts for most of my life. I've done BJJ with Royce himself when he's come over here, traditional JJ, free style JJ and in MMA plus many striking styles. Id never take someone to the ground in a real fight like it's been said it's signing your own death but it's good to know how...

Re: Yourself as a weapon?

Best option is to find a school that spars hard. Will that replace a real fight, no. However, in my school we regularly have people knocked out, broken noses, and stitches. I dislocated my pinky knuckle this summer parlaying an over hand 2. That sucked. Get to a sparring gym, put on gloves and spar...

ECQC is probably the biggest bang for the buck training I've ever done. And I've done a good bit. Fun and eye opening.

best blister treatment i know i picked up in the army. needle and thread - i've been told to use undyed cotton thread, but i've never had a problem with any of the numerous varieties i've tried. pass the thread thru the blister and leave it there. clip the ends so about 1/4" sticks out on each side....

Re: Best .45 ACP for concealed carry

if you're a 1911 guy and you can score a reliable commander length, look into doing a bobtail mod. they're easy enough to do yourself with hand tools and really changes the concealability of the gun IMO. this is one i did myself, before the final sanding and refinishing. http://31.media.tumblr.com/t...

Re: Military Pants

to each his own, but i hated having anything in those calf pockets. it always felt twice as heavy as keeping it anywhere else, out on the end of the lever like that. i could see it for a spare map or something flat and practically weightless.

Super enclosed areas: no, not other than fighting in a crowd. That sounds interesting as shit actually. I'd love to spar in a hallway or stairwell.
