Estate buckshot

Idk if this counts as a bug out deal due to its sheer weight... But MidwayUSA is running a deal on estate 00 buckshot. $80/case. The shipping for me (to PA) (:/) was $16. So a little less than $100/250rds. It's the cheapest deal I've seen. It's a bare bones non buffered 2 3/4" buckshot. I still have...

Re: 12-gauge Options

I have a couple of the inserts and I'm pretty pleased. It would seem perfect for you as well. Walkabout with a slug chambered in case you need it. When you get to a trap even the 3" models would be fine in some ways better than a pistol for dispatching game. Who cares if the bullet keyholes at 25 ya...

Re: Alcohol heaters - have you used a Heat Mate or Heat Pal?

Very interesting! I've heard of alcohol fireplaces but I've not seen one. I'm seeing these space heater offerings for the first time in this thread. I will point out that this looks very much like a production version of the diy isopropyl alcohol quart paint can emergency heaters in a popcorn can. I...

Polar pure a thing of the past?

Well I used it in the 90's and it was a different world back then. The regulations regarding the record of purchases was part of the patriot act I believe. The polar pure guy just ignored it from what I read. It does taste like ass. But it's 500 gallons worth in an easily portable bottle that lasts ...

Are you in the US? This is interesting. I Wonder what customs would have to say about it. It looks like it would do the same thing.

How would the carrier know what's in the box? The seller has presumably sold more than your one order. Once is bad luck twice is coincidence three times is enemy action.

Re: Ammo Systems for SHTF?

I'm lucky enough to have a local store that reliably sells 50cal and 30cal surplus cans. I pick one or two up as I buy ammo. It's mostly shotgun and rifle ammo. I buy a can and fill it up over the following few weeks. Then I buy another one. It adds up fast.

Re: Best BOB fuel? Esbit? Sterno? Alcohol? Other?

I am a fan of the Trail Designs Ti Tri Caldera stove due to it being a 3 fuel stove system. Esbit, Alcohol, and wood. With the inferno insert the wood burning even does a bit of gasification burning. Down side for these is the design is fit to specific pot sizes. So you loose some flexibility of us...

Re: Best BOB fuel? Esbit? Sterno? Alcohol? Other?

I have never run out of fuel in a full trangia while cooking. I Fill it up before I start and save what's left over inside the capped burner. I suppose that it is conceivable that one could run out of fuel during a marathon cooking session. Whenever someone comes up with a practical shortcoming of a...

Re: Best BOB fuel? Esbit? Sterno? Alcohol? Other?

Alcohol is hard to beat. For heavy duty winter performance under difficult conditions... Coleman fuel or kerosene is really where it's at. Bio stoves that burn wood are good in most conditions. Sterno sucks. Anything a sterno stove can do, you can do better with a trangia. ISO butane stoves are good...

I'm not sure if it would work for the op... But the Elzetta zsm is a solid cheap light mount for a defensive shotgun. It requires a certain amount of real estate forward of the slide.

Sadly, none of my family member's nor myself own any fire arms.

In the event of a zombie outbrea...
