Re: What have you bought lately? (Bug Out Version)

I've been on a gas adapter buying binge lately. I picked up a couple of propane ones; First the MacCoupler http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u43/111t/83D343E0-F67C-46DD-81A3-29BD1DF8E6D8_zpszzsp2j9o.jpg http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u43/111t/E2185B1E-A7CA-437C-B0A3-07C5363434C3_zpscmj0ybfd.jpg...

Re: What's in your camera bag?

Lots of aa batteries. I personally like the current rayovac walmart offerings. I know there are those that swear by eneloops. I also carry two vivitar 285hv flashes as a backup to my 580ex2. They also are useful slaved as accent lights. It occurs to me now that if I was forced to crack open a flash ...

Re: Liberty 'Rocket' brand kerosene pressure stove. Model 0

533 was never sold as a kerosene stove. The 'dual fuel ' stands for gasoline/coleman fuel. No one else draws a distinction between gasoline and coleman fuel other than coleman. While a 533 might work for a while on kerosene, the generator is not designed for it. The 550b was a true multi fuel stove ...

Re: Liberty 'Rocket' brand kerosene pressure stove. Model 0

Self priming with kerosene is just dirtier and requires a wick.

The household type traditional stoves were often used indoors. Alcohol is a much preferred priming fuel in that case.

Re: Liberty 'Rocket' brand kerosene pressure stove. Model 0

Yes the backpacking stoves are the closest thing we have on the consumer market. They are similar in function. Here are the differences; 1) price. While the international can be had for a comparable amount, the xgk is much more. The regulating stoves (omnifuel, dragonfly, nova...) are in the $150 ra...

Liberty 'Rocket' brand kerosene pressure stove. Model 0

That St. Paul mercantile disclaimer is great! I'd sums it up perfectly. These items are not made in some ISO compliant first world factory. The stoves have lead washers! Please try not to lick those parts! My Liberty stoves have been functional if not cosmetically perfect. I did replace two of the p...

Re: Liberty 'Rocket' brand kerosene pressure stove. Model 0

Be careful it's addictive.

Here is a history of primus. These Indian made stoves are essentially copies of the original primus design. The idea was to make a 'sootless' burner for kerosene.

Re: Esbit stoves at coleman's

Absolutely trioxane is easier to light. Esbit and hexamine have more heat by weight. I'm not a huge fan of tablet stoves but they do have their place. Trioxane is going to become harder to find in surplus stores since it has been discontinued by the military. Also trioxane is problematic in kits bec...

That's $15 for (4) burners. I can get fuel locally but that's a good deal for actual new old stock burners.

Re: Esbit stoves at coleman's

There are all manner of fire lighter type options. Those weber charcoal lighter tablets which are similar to wetfire come to mind. Another good thing about the Esbit stove is that since it is steel, you can add chunks of wood to it without it melting.

$15 bucks isn't bad. Their shipping tends to be high. Look around for some other stuff to make it worthwhile.

Re: H & R 12 gauge Shot gun, any assisories can add to one?

I put an elzetta Zsm mount on mine with a surefire 6px. It's a pretty descent cheaper light option. I also put I hi-viz fiber optic clip on bead. It's pretty bright even in low light. Doesn't do much in no light... But that's what the surefire is for. I also added a Velcro shotgun card side saddle. ...

I blame the Doan bar. The Doan bar is a mil spec item designed to fulfill a very specific need for military pilots.

I was rooting around in the basement looking for something when I ran across an old bottle of polar pure. I had previously mentioned the way that I carried it when I used it for backpacking. For those who don't know, polar pure comes in a glass bottle due to the reactivity of the iodine crystals. Th...

Re: Estate buckshot

They feed fine in my 590... Just one short. Obviously if the gun is designed to handle 3" shells a slightly long 2 3/4" should still work logically. I could see it being an issue for box magazines or drums. http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u43/111t/CA50D9D4-DB3E-4B36-BDAC-CBE87B56D05D.png_zpsp5dik...
