Re: A biology student's view on zombies

I would have to say I vote for a Virus that acts like the parasites you mentioned. The primary purpose of any creature is procreation of it's DNA. To replicate. To live. I have problems with any Zombie theory that doesn't support this basic idea. So whatever it is that is turning people into a Zomb...

Re: Cast Iron Skillets for Everyday Use and Beyond.

A use I recently invented (though Im certain I am not the first...) for my cast iron skillet, is a sammich press. First, I clean my glass top range and the bottom of the pan to hospital specs. Then, if need be, I cook whatever goes into the sammich on the skillet. Then a quick spray of olive oil on ...

Re: Food by the pound. Rated by calories, protein and fat?

I don't have any numbers, but it seems like its more of a sliding scale or spectrum of food needs, depending on body type/exertion level and time away from Publix supermarket. Like, if your going out for two days/nights, like I recently did on the AT (going northeast from Nells gap) how much food do...

Re: What to do with a couple ALICE packs

I found the gen 4 frames cheap, so I have used a few of those. I cut them to be sort of like the 1606s and they work well... The price on the straps there seems pretty good.... attaching it all together has always been, for me, just winging it... zip ties/extra strapping and buckles/cordage/sowing/e...

Re: Gear Check Me? My bug out / hiking / camping bag.

Well, as long as you can kill two birds with a stone, eating shouldn't be an issue :lol: :?

But yeah, nice kit imo... sleeping pad would be nice, but finding the right spot/building a "nest" can negate the need for that but takes practice... That's the key, get out there and hike/camp/practice!

Re: 9mm 100 grain frangible ammo opinions please

Training/practice/knowing where your people are, probably way more useful than questionable rounds... Seems like some of them go through walls pretty good anyway, so it might give her a false sense of safety & end up causing a problem that knowing whats behind the target would have fixed. http://www...

Can you hook the pocket on a long stick, pull back the handle, and shoot the actual slingshot at a target? Might be more lethal than most projectiles you could shoot OUT of it :awesome:

The range is in the middle of an eastern Largo fl. industrial area, so the bunker keeps all rounds inside the grounds... Its basically a long row of concrete roofed, open-ended bays, with heavy timbers/tires/earth dividing them & as a back wall. The rangs is a 180* range, as almost all IDPA is going...

Reactive trigger for semiautos, ALMOST fa!

We had these in paintball 15 years ago or so, the trigger "pushes back" to reset as soon as you pull it. So with steady pressure, it is essentially full auto, but you ARE pulling the trigger each time... But PB still outlawed it for tournaments. Not sure what the laws will do to this, but looks pret...
