Re: Any incipient panic buying in your AO?

I picked up a M&P Sporter II today, wouldn't call it a panic buy per se as I've been eyeballing one for awhile, but given the current climate I figured why wait. Sportsmans had 5 in stock and plenty of other AR type rifles. Picked up a few Pmags, they had plenty in stock, although after the sale the...

Re: You're at work. Things go bad. What would you do?

My wife and I work together, which is handy. Our baby is at a sitter we are good friends with, about 6 miles away. Earthquakes and Tornadoes pretty much won't happen here unless some apocalyptic world shattering mojo goes down. Pretty much a major widespread power outage is the only disaster that wo...

Re: Near-Death Experiments in Food

Store brand hummus.

1 week past use by date, smelled normal, looked normal, put a tiny bit on a cracker and just barely put a bit to my tongue. Instant overwhelming moldy flavor, horrible wretching and gagging follows. Had to use mouthwash for a few minutes to clear away the gagging.

Re: Tent recommendations for a Small Family.

Thanks for the input so far. Currently we just have the baby, but other siblings are in mind for the future so we'll want to be able to fit a few kids in it at least. Our dog is a whippet, mid-sized dog. I'm not overly concerned with it being backpackable light, but I don't want something really big...

Tent recommendations for a Small Family.

For the past several years the only tent I've ever used/needed was a Golite Shangrila 1 which is basically a tub floor and a bug net just big enough for me. With that and a small tarp I've slept comfortably in a number of different environments from rainy woodlands to cold Sonoran desert nights. How...
