Re: Maybe prepare for another ammo shortage?

I generally always assume to be preparing for a shortage, news story or not. Thus I am always looking for the deals to increase my ammo stocks. Thankfully I had gotten to what I consider a minimal comfort level, so have just been adding to my stocks raising my supply above minimum here and there. An...

Re: Wuuut! Tactical Crossbow

The r9 which this is built off of is priced at $250 on Amazon. I don't think you will have to worry about a $2K price. I am guessing more $300 range

Re: Wuuut! Tactical Crossbow

OK that is just pure awesome that someone finally built one of these for commercial sale! :clap: Considering the price of the r9 isn't that high, the price pont for one of these likely isn't going to be too bad either. Now I have been out of touch being busy on my homestead, so hadn't even heard of ...

Re: We need to up our bush shelter game folks

Well the house build will take some time. I will be happy if I get all the posts and beams set this year. That alone will be a challenge to do in the time I will have to do it.

Awesome you guys are getting into it. I am visiting family, which is part of why I have suddenly become so much more active online having access to the internet in abundance here. But once I get home to my 40 acres, I will be scouting places to start working on bush shelters as well. Now I will be a...

Re: Most Effective School of Martial Arts

The most effective thing being to not be there if possible etc... That is what my Tai Chi instructor used to say pretty much.

Re: Cheap Husky and Stihl chainsaw clones/knock offs, should you buy?

Ok, I am not saying they are not. If I swap out parts on other cheaply made power tools I can get a better power tool. After the time and labor expense I am not sure what I am saving. Well according to the folks who make the recommendation, the swapping out the parts is not necessary it just brings...

Re: Cheap Husky and Stihl chainsaw clones/knock offs, should you buy?

Stercutus, yet as I mentioned folks who know saws well give favorable reviews of these. Saying swap out a literal handful of parts and they come in just under the name brand they are clones of. So the issue of quality is not so big an issue with these as one might think and expect. I was surprised h...

Re: Cheap Husky and Stihl chainsaw clones/knock offs, should you buy?

As was also mentioned in the other forum, a 90cc saw is a beast of a saw, you likely do not want to run a small blade on it. I agree, that video showing a small blade on such a powerful saw is not the way to go. Now about the bar for the saw in comparison to the ones in the video. I will be using a ...

I thought about adding this to the Echo vs. Husqvarna vs. Stihl thread https://www.zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=118556 but that hasn't been active since 2016, and well this is a totally different saw company.

Also the proof of it is limited as they do not conduct matches for sport. They train extensively in armed combat which most ...

Re: Hatchet vs. Machete--either, neither, or both?

Me I am in the neither/both category. By that I mean, I don't like hatchets or machete. Instead I am an axe and sword guy. A small axe I feel is much better that a hatchet. Hatchets are just too limited and you don't really save much in weight from a small axe to a a hatchet. The heads tend to be si...
