Re: What ammo to choose while in Svalbard?

My understanding is that they use Mausers re-barreled in .30 -06.

That said I would ask the people I am visiting in addition to the usual questions about proper attire (Business,business casual or plant) and recommended hotel.

Re: Scientific American: Disaster Myths

In LA we have the Cajun Navy that responded to floods on several occasions. We also have a similar response during Katrina.

I would not that in all of those cases the citizen volunteers encountered resistance from authorities at varying levels and to varying degrees.

Re: Religious & Ethinc Groups Take CERT to New Level

Good point That said this one is doing what I suggest as far as the name goes. It is going by the name of Brooklyn South Safety Patrol and down playing the religious affiliation. https://s3.amazonaws.com/bklyner/bklyner/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/boro-park-shomrim.jpg If you want to help your commun...

Re: Religious & Ethinc Groups Take CERT to New Level

Not a NY'er but I agree with two above comments. I would suggest they use the name of the area and phrase Community Patrol.

This seems to begging for issues.

Re: Camp Fire

An interesting twist on the Camp Fire. PG&E filed bankruptcy due to the potential liability for this fire. They are a major power utility for the area and have been implicated as a cause of the fire. I have no knowledge or opinion on whether or not they are liable but clearly they are worried enough...

2019 Flu Season

This flu season seems to be turning into a bad season. This not quite a disaster unless of course you get the flu. Make sure you have some hand sanitizer and an RX for Tamiflu. That and get flu shot. It seems to be effective this year. http://www.fox8live.com/2019/01/03/louisiana-one-nine-states-wit...

If you are carrying a carbine as your primary woods gun, might I suggest a 30-30 Winchester? That is good advice. I considered 30-30 for many of the reasons you mentioned. I also considered .44 mag and actually .454 casul (albeit using .45 Colt) but settled on the .357 magnum after trying it. I did...

I also grew up watching these films. My school even had a shelter. We had both fire drills and shelter drills. The first we had to evacuate in a calm orderly fashion by class and meet at the rally point outside, while the other, had the whole school inside the basement shelter.
