Re: What would you do if your house was squatted??

Well... in my leases the doors are listed as appliances that can be removed at landlords discression. So to evict people we have removed the doors for "maintenance" which really motivated the tenants to move as it was winter and the average temp was pretty darn cold without a door. I dealt with a sq...

Re: Front site idea about ammo in your go-bag.

Personally I keep a few extra rounds of caliber I own in my bob but having 67 lose rounds in a bag is not a functionally good idea. Let's say I do find said empty gun... now I have to dig out the rounds but in the real world under conditions possibly under fire and with my luck in the dark. I would ...

Re: Body Worn Camera

I'm curious what you do for a living? I know personally I have a dash cam because people drive like turds but IDK if you would really get that much use from a body cam. A good cellphone might be more use, that way you'll always have it on you.

Re: Brown Bear 7.62x39 and a sketchy situation.

Based on what I saw at his house (piles and piles of junk) I don't think it was stolen. Honestly what kind of criminal steals cheap Russian ammo? It's heavy and not really resellable. While I'm not too sure about this guy yet, but he did message me today out of the blue and ask if I wanted to buy a ...

Brown Bear 7.62x39 and a sketchy situation.

So I was buying a bicycle last night around 8. It's in a crappy part of town and because of construction I didn't get there until after dark. The guy had 8 bikes and I bought one for $20 which is a good price but it's not in great shape. Talking with the guy for a while he was a little strange, mayb...

Re: You find yourself with a hostage?

It's a hard moral question. On one hand letting someone go would put you at risk but on the other hand murdering someone is against ZS rules... so I'm going to take it on a case by case basis. Also for me there is no question, the dog comes and you better shut up and climb in the bed cause he's ridi...

Re: Confused about BOB shelter

Of course I've done this a few times and am pretty good at setting up a camp sight on the fly so my BOB va...

Re: How many rifle magazines for a get-home kit?

I personally keep 10 mags in my car and extra mags for my EDC. Since weight is not really a concern in a vehicle I think more the merrier should be the mentality, I would much rather carry more mags then I need rather than not enough. Balance this of course with cost and vulnerability and find a num...

Re: Polaris 570 vs KLR 650 - Four Wheels Good, Two Wheels...

I guess if I had to chose one I would take the KLR, personally I like sport bikes but meh. I think if you added hard cases with saddle bags you would increase the capacity significantly. I also know they make 10 gallon fuel tanks for the KLR, they just cost a few pretty pennies.

I've just got my first paycheck from my new job, so I'm looking to spend a good chunk of it on a new gun. I've whittled it down to a few guns I've had my eye on for a while, which should I buy first and why? Also if you have a suggestion please share it. I'm wanting to spend ~200-350.
