Re: Keeping Busy, Isolation/lockdown projects

I gave my axes a boiled linseed oil coating whether they needed it or not. I did a little yard work, though there wasn't much to do. I need to put in a couple of braces on the patio bench I built when I realized there's some fore and aft flex. May do that later today. I have some motorcycle work to ...

Re: What WILL you do with that stimulus check?

Some of what I will get will be donated to a friend to pay for his monthly chemotherapy treatments. I already give what I can, so this will help him. Some will donate to at least one fund of a local business to help pay rent and employees' paychecks. A little may go to pay debt. Maybe I'll spend $1...

Re: Woods Walker in Memorium

I also saw this news recently on BCUSA. So sad to hear, and one of my favorite YT channels.

Kevin will be sorely missed among us. I hope his friends and family remember his smile and company fondly and realize how many people he inspired and befriended.

Re: What's your favorite non-prep prep item?

Totally non-prep, but I have books. Lots of books. I rarely ever go anywhere without a book.

To me, it's actually an essential survival item--for my brain. :clownshoes:

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms related)

I was a bad monkey this weekend.

I now own (what is most likely) a police trade-in Sig Sauer P226 in .40 S&W that's in some pretty fine shape. And which I got for a pretty good deal.

Re: Hello everybody, I am from Colorado

Welcome from Virginia, formerly Colorado. Love that state--so many things to do, many of which require no participation of other humans.

Though I do miss the foodie culture of the Denver/Boulder area. And the oodles of live music.

Re: Propane Pre-Shortage Notice - CO

It is a good prep ro have some form of alternate heating. I suspect most of these rural users have a decent plan b. Very good clarification of the issue, raptor. Though unfortunately, excepting wool sweaters, propane heat is the only option for a lot of rural areas in Colorado. While most places ha...

Re: Articles of Interest at the "American Partisan" site

Yes, but the Lourdes site has little (nothing) to do with nuclear or military weaponry. That's more why I was asking what the significance was on this. I suppose if the 'active jamming' report is accurate, then maybe there's some significance for US defensive activities, but... Appreciate the respon...

Re: Recommendation for lightweight breatheable rainjacket

I just got this generic bicycling rain jacket from Amazon. It seems relatively sturdy and a reasonable fit. I'm 6'2" and ~230 and i have some extra space. The arms are elasticized and the bottom and hood have cinches. Since it's not a full zip, bigger folks may have an issue getting arms into it and...
