Re: Where to Buy Supplies for a Cak Kit?

Any better hardware store should have just about all of that stuff - NOT a "home improvement center" (i.e., Lowe's or Home Depot), an honest-to-goodness, (usually) independently-owned hardware store . Every town has at least awesome one, ask around. The only exception is probably the glowsticks - I ...

Re: Jeriah's Thoughts on Swords

like Japan, where katanas are regulated weapons that require registration papers kept with them. So, if you ever see yourself weilding a sword (any kind) with a tactical light, laser, and bayonet, make sure you get in now while they're all pre-ban swords! To my knowledge, this is inaccurate. I've b...

Re: How do you remove fat from Summer Sausage?

I don't think you're gonna find a way to remove the fat without cooking it. Switch to turkey summer sausage, maybe? I know most "turkey-analogue" products are nasty, but I would guess that summer sausage wouldn't be too bad, since it's pretty heavily seasoned. (I really like the turkey breakfast sau...

Re: My latest small cabin design

Re: Let's have some Coffee!

I have them little tubes of Nescafe like you find in MRE packs and I also just buy a big jar of instant and carry it in a little 2 oz. bottle in my kit. I actually like the "coffee bags" - I take them ...

Re: Taurus = Fuck the fucking fuckers...

Not everyone has, or has the inclination to, spend a ton of money on a gun. For the occasional shooter, there are probably lots of Taurus pistols that will work just fine for them. For someone who shoots a lot more, they are likely going to invest in something with a better reputation. There is roo...

Just a bump to let Bear know I was thinking of this thread today - I went shopping for a 1911 and told the guy what I was looking for, my price range (towards the cheaper end for a 1911), and said "...and not a Taurus!" He gave me a smirk that I took to mean "good call!" :lol:
