Re: Skinny version of the forum for mobile, etc, users?

If I make these changes on my blackberry, will it change them while I'm on my PC as well? They're saved to my profile, not my pc, or cookies, or cake or whatever the hell else it is, right? Yes, the changes will stick, no matter what platform you log on with. You'll need to reset them if you want t...

Re: Fix...Bayonets!

Bayonets are, mainly, for the "last stand". When you are out of ammunition, but the bad guys keep coming, you "fix bayonets", and take as many of them with you as you can.

Re: What size tarp?

The bigger the better. Well, the problem is that for every incremental step up in size, weight increases exponentially. I'm trying to balance comfort sleeping with comfort hiking. My 1st-choice BOL is a 70 mile hike (closer to 90 with my planned foot route), so if I need to go on foot, it needs to ...

Re: Connecticut, anyone?

Nah, not really. I thought the bypass was going to go from 95 to the casino, so people wanting to gamble could zoom down there and lose their money. Unfortunately, the bypass is only immediately around the casino, traffic will still back up Rt. 2 to 95, and sometimes all the way into Westerly if the...

I'm speculating on getting a Vargo titanium stove and cup at one of our local stores. It's cheaper on the internet, but much more convenient to buy it here. Anyone have any experience with these? The stove itself is great, and the cup is great, but the cup doesn't really fit on top of the stove. A ...

Re: Indoor CQB and room clearing?

I figure a shotgun, with OO buck, has a greater chance to de-head a zombie, with its 12 or so projectiles, than 1 bullet from a .45 or 9mm.

I'm looking for "one trigger pull - one downed zombie".

Shotgun shells are a little harder to pack and carry, but, there are always trade-offs.
