Re: New guy checking in

I had not planned on a scope due to the brass not being drilled rather I wanted to have the buckhorn sight replaced with a Skinner peep site with a large aperture and a K&S crosshair in place of the front site.

Re: What long arm and handgun are you using to bug out? by Quartermaster » Thu Sep 09, 2010 12:41 am Man, that is a really hard choice. If I have to bug out on foot, then I would likely take my Marlin 1894C lever action and Taurus revolver because both are chambered for .357/.38. These ammos are ve...

Re: Solo Stove-Any users?

There are a couple of other options for flammable materials to boil your tea & rations; one is well dried animal dung, another is bones fresh from a kill. Both can be used as the main fuel in a fire although the latter smokes some & smells like burning fingernails. However, the smoke passes off quic...

You chose the wrong direction to travel. Had you gone south instead of north, you could have hooked up with ZSC024. Down here your skills would have been appreciated and we don't attack our own.

Re: G'day from down under

Probably not undead but just lucky. I took out a 4 pt whitetail a few years back with my mini-van and pulled off the road to check to see if it was still alive. The bastard took out a headlight and did some grill damage. I tracked the sucker from the road to about 1/4 mile into the woods off Hwy 100...

Re: Solo Stove-Any users?

Go to ReproRations and take a look at the little stove mount that uses sterno can. This can be modified with a round piece of steel for a base to use as a small woodburner. Personally, I use a dingle stick and a small fire to boil my tea, eggs, and meat but this little stove may be what you need. Al...

Re: Develop The First Weapon

When discussing the human body as the first weapon, it is important to realize that means both the physical and psychological . . . more on the downside of what happens when you don't keep a close eye on the latter in a later post.

Re: One Problem i have with Melee weapons

A couple of weapons that have rarely been mentioned on this thread are the flanged mace and the medieval warhammer/pick. The modified crowbar is more usefule than a flanged mace but the latter is a useful melee weapon if you limit the flanges to four space equally around the core on a 30-32" ash or ...

The lizard part of my brain has been under control since I ran a smoke shop downtown for 11 years before I sold it. I quickly learned that arguing with or trying to impress other males, especially those who were drunk, high, or under 25 was a waste of time. I did learn that even if you have a shop f...

Twenty-five or so years ago, Pete Pelegrinni used to go hunting for razorbacks in Lousiana. He and his friends would go in pairs, each armed with a boar spear and high caliber pistol (usually .45).

Re: Develop The First Weapon

Blister finally went down and has started peeling off. I don't recommend that anyone just poke a pin in a blister to drain it since the fluid in the blister is a form of plasma that helps heel the injury. If you have to drain a blister, you can use a syringe to inject some tincture of benzoin into i...

Re: One Problem i have with Melee weapons

Melee only sounds effete because it is French, who we all know speak with those OUT-RAGE-OUS ACCENTS. Of course, effete is also a French word.

Sometimes blisters are caused by other things than bad fitting shoes. If your big toe is a little off kilter due to an old injury or you are a diabetic with some mild neuropathy, it can be a simple case of your sock not fitting perfectly. I agree that regular cotton athletic socks are not always app...
