Re: 2018 prep goals

I only have a couple of goals that will hopefully set the baseline for some changes in 2019. First, continue my attempts at better fitness and getting to the point where I can run a sustained 4-5 miles in reasonably good time. Second, get some better financial security. I have the opportunity now, b...

Re: Shotgun Scabbard

While I did make my own, I am relatively certain that these issues are universal to the concept as a whole. Shorter firearms might be somewhat more suitable to it, but I kind of doubt it. Has anyone had any other experiences with these? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180215/6a8b4e707c60b4b877d0...

Re: Three season tent recommendations?

Great suggestions. More than I was hoping to spend, but maybe I can work toward this over the next few months.

Thanks all! Any additional input is welcome.

Three season tent recommendations?

Wanting to get back into camping with gear that would double as GTFO emergency gear. Live in Virginia, so waterproof--or very, very reliable rain fly--would be preferred. Two person is sufficient, but four would be preferred. Not looking for a backpacking type tent--this would be something conveyed ...

Re: DIY Bug Spray for Mosquitoes and Ticks.Natural essential

Quite the concoction. I saw this video on Youtube the other day, and I had two thoughts. First, that seems to be some hellaciously expensive bug and tick spray with those ingredients. Second, how long does a bottle keep? As in, mix and use on Monday. How many days/weeks would it keep in the spray bo...

Re: Remington 700

The 700 is one of two models I would like when I get a bolty. The other is a Howa. And that scope looks fantastic. Don't really have suggestions, as I have always thought bolt rifles are pretty great as is. What about a performance trigger or something? Although, if you like it as it is, would be si...

Re: Firearms Chat 5: #pewpewlife

Unless somebody changed the definition, those little covers are dust covers--more a bonus than a necessity if you're worried about getting shmutz in your mags.

Never heard of them cracking for any reason aside from abuse and misuse.

Re: I have a question

I keep my BOB in the bedroom closet. I'm of the mind that I'll likely have enough time to enter, grab, and go. In such event, I will very likely be grabbing a handful of things and tossing them in my Jeep as extras.

Re: JeeperCreeper wants to move. Help him.

Seasonal variations in Colorado can be brutal and environmentally devastating. When it's hot, it's HOT, and when it snows, it can bring feet of wet, heavy snow that regularly takes roofs down. Also, for those who care, Colorado has a magazine capacity law (limited at 15). I'd cross Virginia off the ...

Iunio Survival Shovel, 31" model

Purchased the Iunio Survival/Emergency Shovel from Amazon earlier this week for likely use with my BOB, though I may store it in the Jeep (or purchase another since it only cost $34). Incoming series of pictures. No use reviews yet, but for what it is, it seems like it would absolutely get the job d...

I've been smacked by those stones. Knocked me a little dingy.

I'll be driving through/near that area in a few weeks. Really hope this weather is nowhere to be seen by then.
