Re: Yourself as a weapon?

Experience beats training every time. People who study for years, but have never been in a real fight are at a significant disadvantage. I've done some muay thai and I found that okay, though didn't really like the instructor so only did it for about 3 6month blocks over a period of about the same n...

Re: Any good reason(s) to buy a .303 Enfield?

K31 is straight pull.. cheating haha. Joking, of course a straight pull will be quicker. Though the SMLE design is still very fast.

Also 6 rounds straight pull vs 10 rounds SMLE action... If you factor in reloading time, I think the SMLE would probably come out on top for most shooters

Septic tanks? Seems like you've got the start up capital, so if you're serious about being as off-grid as possible... a reliance on service stations/gas stations/petrol stations, whatever you call them is avoidable. Look into a biodiesel reactor and methane collection (these are your septic tanks) c...

Re: What presents for 13 year old prepper?

Depends, has he got a good swiss army knife/leatherman?
Does he shoot? Maybe a .22LR or if he's done a lot of shooting a .223. You hang onto it to keep it secure then go out shooting together, not only an awesome present but good bonding activity

Re: EDC kits: Help me build?

I'm not going to give you a list you should use, your needs and abilities are most likely different to mine. Some key points though: - Gloves . Have a few pairs, as you'll probably end up performing first aid on someone else and you don't want to touch any bodily fluids. - Burn gel . You're most lik...

Make it challenging and take the AR out of the equation. Pretend your AO is as bad as my AO. Pick one out of the following: -Double barrel 12gauge with 2 25shell bandoleers of your favourite flavour. -.223 bolt action. 4x scope, 2 10rnd magazines, 100 rounds -.44 Lever gun.

Re: Role playing, 5kg--What are you taking?

Well my 7600P, with the modifcations I've done probably weigh around 3.5kg... Each loaded mag weights about 460g from memory. Call it half a kg.... So I can bring my main rifle with 30 rounds in 3 magazines. Yep, I'm fucked. Alternatively I could bring my single barrel 12g and a couple 25shell bando...

Re: Blackout hits 100,000 buildings (Australia, VIC)

It says the power stations were down for 19mins, but the store was without power for a touch under 40mins. Sometimes (depending on the system load/demand), whenever you re-energize a substation, you have to then re-energize the individual feeder circuits one at a time. After the "start wattage" has...
