Re: "stay home" - why is this such a problem?

I think people who are struggling fall into a few categories: - Those who are broke because the government told them they can't work. - Those who are troubled by new, fearful things - Those who are troubled by authoritarian moves by governments. Personally, I'm thriving. This came at a great time fo...

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

Re: Are we prepared for this?

I had the same experience- my sweetie of 3 years was getting more panicked every day. Last night she came over and I went through what I have in my basement and what the contingency plans at different levels are. She knew I had preps, but didn't realize they were reasonable ones that covered an even...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Well, it appears Cheaper Than Dirt has shot themselves in the ass again. I guess they didn't learn anything after the Sandy Hook panic. This is the 4th time they've done this that I know of. Each time the internet screams out that they will never shop there again, but too few follow through. This i...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

I planted an extra set of seeds, in case I am inspired for a second planting this year. Also got in my cardio, have been focused on both cardio health and foot endurance the last couple weeks. My normal exercise is hockey, which only partially translates into walking and running.

Re: Covid-19 Leads to Surge of Guns & Ammo Sales

My favorite local shop was looking a little sparse on Saturday and they were down to 20 - 25% of their normal offerings of AR's. While I was there a dude came in with his girlfriend to buy one of the last ones they had left, and he knew nothing about them. As well, SG Ammo has halted sales, so there...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Come to think of it, I've never ordered ammo online at all. That might change since I can't find 7.62x25 Tokarev locally. I order nearly all of my ammo online, it's just a lot cheaper and easier to find it by the case. I recommend SGAmmo.com, I've had great luck with them over more than 20 orders. ...

Re: NATO VS Civie gas can

There are different brands and trim levels of "civvie" cans. Some have a quite pronounced seam which can actually prevent the can from sitting totally flat, as the seam on the bottom projects beyond the base of the can. Other than that I can't say. Maybe coatings? Ethenol in gas can make a mess of u...

Looks like CDNN Sports is having a big liquidation sale on ammo at the moment. Apparently they're also going to stop selling ammo. At least that's what the email I got from them made it sound like. Their email says "big liquidation". Their prices are pretty much the same as they were a month or a y...

Yeah, lots of breeds that can make good security dogs. Akita and Anatolian Shepard come to mind as well. Keep in mind that the biggest investment in a working dog is the training time- you can buy the top pedigree dog and if you don't spend the time in initial and ongoing training then it's not goin...

Skinner has some, dunno if your model is covered. Skinner doesn't offer any for the Rossi 92 that I have seen. Other than maybe a peep that goes in the same place at the buckhorn, which isn't as useful, I think. The only one I know who makes a receiver mounted peep for the 92's is Steve's Gunz, who...

Took the Henry out to the range last Saturday. The rifle's great...except the rear sight, which is a "semi-buckhorn" and, IMO, terribly unimpressive. Bought a Skinner peep sight and got it on, and just from sighting on things around the house it's a vast improvement. Yeah, I'm not a fan of the Henr...

I think that's more than some banks. All of them do this so far as I know. They do it for a variety of reasons but mostly to prevent their ATMs being cleaned out by just a small number of customers during disasters, and also to limit how much can be taken with a forged card. Truth. Some are as low ...

Feds cut the prime rate 50 points in an unprecedented emergency move. This should encourage already over leveraged businesses to borrow even more.
