Re: Youtube Prepper Vlogs: Good vs. Bad

You do find a lot of channels that are just there to shill products. Wranglerstar comes to mind as a very popular channel that seems to get a lot of prodcuts. Last Line of Defense gets tons of free stuff as well, but I appreciate his take on prepping. Other channels that are prepper related that I r...

Is the KelTec RDB worth the price?
It's a lot cheaper than a Steyr! I enjoy bullpups myself. Value is a very personal thing though, that's up to you to score.

Re: Throwback Topic: What's your top 3 z-pac firearms?

In the world of Romero zombies, the 22 rifle is king. Totally agree, although I would step it up to 22 magnum. Sometimes 22 LR will bounce off a skull. And there are some options today that didn't exist in 2010. So my 2020 list would be: Pistol: Kel-Tec PMR-30 Rifle: Kel-Tec CMR-30 with Eotec or 1-...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Just picked up a CZ 550 American safari magnum in 375 h &h magnum. Just in case there is a Zombie hiding behind a fridge and 2 houses lol. That sounds like a lot of fun!

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

That's kind of neat, but the grip looks a bit on the small side to me. I've got a bird's head grip single action in 327 and it's not a bad grip overall. It really helps it roll in your hand under recoil. I much prefer it to the Bisley grip, which puts my hand in a position where there trigger guard...

Re: Choosing a rifle for a small frame deer hunter

Picking out a firearm for anyone is kind of like buying shoes and a tie for someone...i.e. It is hard to get a proper fit. I totally agree. Firearm fit is a very personal thing.

plus they ship with a 9mm barrel (or at least mine did). but I haven't tried any .22 TCM through it yet (hadn't ever heard of the round before I got the pistol).
TCM is a lot of fun. No recoil, lots of muzzle flash.

Yes, they make several models, both double stack and single stack. I keep hoping more people will offer models as well and more choices in ammo will be offered.

Re: tent heater?

I've used both a Buddy heater and a wood stove in a small tent. The Buddy heater is on the verge of being too hot, even on it's lowest setting. You get about 6 hours of of a small propane canister. The wood stove I puts out a more reasonable about of heat, but if you don't have good wood you have to...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

I really like that Ruger released the 57, nice to see some competition. It also explains why FN was running a special on the original FiveSeven in December, they must have known Ruger's release was emminent. Already we see Speer has released a new 5.7x28 load, so the companies making ammo in this ca...
