Re: What's going on in Charlotte?

The signs were with the ethnically and economically diverse protest crowd at Marshall Park across from the Courthouse at 3rd and McDowell. I saw them personally when we were driving through the area on the way back from my kid's kung fu class and we wanted to see what was happening (this is before t...

Re: rethinking bug out vehicle given protesters blocking tra

I thought a bit about this after watching "War of the Worlds" and started this thread: https://www.zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=36449&hilit=obstacles+to+evacuation An angry mob is definitely an obstacle to evacuation. I have basically decided that bugging in is the best option unless ...

Re: what's going on in Charoltte?

Yeah, the rioters are usually the ones who are sprinting around, breaking things and beating people. The protesters are typically giving speeches, holding signs, chanting, and marching, often holding hands or doing the usual street theater stuff. The protesters are usually the ones yelling at the ri...

Re: what's going on in Charoltte?

Stay safe. It is easy to fall into complacency and deny a risk exists unless you see it first hand, at which time it may be too late. This is something that can be peaceful on the face of it but can turn around very quickly into violence if the right mix of the wrong people is achieved. I'm at work...

My friend the disaster tourist, who went to Georgia at the tail end of the Russian invasion, Greece during the riots, and who was at the fall of the Berlin Wall, writes: I live in Downtown Charlotte.

I politely told him that his training was "idiosyncratic." He had the same job as my dad in the USAF (film processor), although it was a couple of decades later, and my dad was trained to shoot center mass.

My office is doing a 4 pm soft close, but I'm working on a high-priority job and the attorney has asked me to stay until done, if possible, so I may be here into the evening. I hope not to have to run any blockades of burning tires. :lol:

Air Force "Shoot to Disarm" training? SRSLY?

A friend of mine just posted on FB: "I just want to know why it's always the kill shot. Whatever happened to shooting to disarm? Hell, when I had to qualify with firearms in the Air Force, we were told that the kill shot was the very last resort." That sounds like BS to me. The military small arms t...

Re: what's going on in Charoltte?

Multiple on-scene eyewitnesses who are friends of friends are insisting that it was not a "civilian" who shot the man last night, but an LEO. Still waiting for confirmation from my credentialed journalist friend who was on the scene.

Re: what's going on in Charoltte?

Charleston is named for King Charles II, and Charlotte is named for Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III. Charleston was heavily (though not exclusively) Loyalist during the Revolution, and Charlotte was called a "Hornet's Nest of Rebellion" by Cornwallis.

I'm at work today right in the middle of where it all happened last night. The streets are quiet, the restaurants are closed. Bank of America and Wells Fargo employees are working form home today, but no such luck for me. The shooting last night is not yet a fatality. The victim is in critical condi...

Re: Fallout 4......

I did the Clockwork Orange thing last night: Long Johns, Bowler hat, and walking stick. Beat a few raiders to death. Just needed a little of the old Ludwig Van.

Ran into Parker Quinn and bought his charge card. I knew it was a scam, but I'm bloody rich.

Yeah, you can equip your companions by giving them apparel/weapons and clicking the the Y button. Same with all your settlers. I tend to equip all my settlement guards in fatigues and combat armor. You can undress them by putting them in armor over apparel that doesn't accommodate armor. I had Abern...

I like Piper, Cait and Curie, all for different reasons.

I forgot about the Carhenge behemoth. I passed through there early on but I haven't been back, even though I visit Sunshine Tidings regularly. I can't remember how I killed him. I think it was with a missile launcher.
