Re: Preparing for an Emergent Disabling Personal Disaster

My son is MHMR and non-verbal. He carries a card on him with a brief description of his needs one side and 6 contacts on the other. I have looked into a tattoo ID in the past, but my concern is information changing. I've had the same cell # for 8 years but before that I went through several. For now...

Re: Short article with the founder of Leatherman.

Nice little piece of history. Like many, I'm a gear junkie, unlike many of those - I am very hard on gear, I use it and abuse it. I've got a drawer full of briken multi-tools of all brands and qualities. Leatherman tools typically tend to last longer and take more punishment, while I've heard that t...

Re: Zimbabwe currency crisis: No cash, no bread, no KFC

History repeats. I've got a few hundred Billion (yes with a B) dollars in collapse era (2008) Zimbabwean dollars in a drawer. At that time I think the 50 billion notes were converting at a little over a u.s. quarter. I initially picked up a few trillion- shipping was far more than the total exchange...

Re: To reload or not to reload, that is the question

I am very much in the roll your own camp.

While you can often find common caliber ammunition in general purpose bulk forms for...

Re: Why You should Avoid flood Waters

We have very specific protocols for flood rescue. It's been a few years since our last major event, and hopefully years to go. Rapid decontamination is critical after urban water rescue, there is some seriously nasty stuff out there - it drives me nuts that parents will let kids play in standing flo...

Remlin lever action 30-30 from a guy down the street, not a gun guy - he bought it new last year and it's been in the box ever since.
Now he needs parts for his truck - so thank you ford motor company for my new 100 dollar rifle. Please keep breaking.

Re: 20 Volt Multi-Tool Sets: Opinions and Experiences

When I was doing maintenance full time I had pretty much every 18v tool dewalt made, before the 20v lithium came out. When I moved to welding I kept using them, until I got stuck on a job in Midland and ended up hanging sheet instead of welding. One of the guys on the crew had this tiny red impact a...

Re: Breachpen - High Temp Cutting/Welding

I've used a lot of oxygen lances, you can pretty much blow through anything with one. A few seconds of thermite bar might be handy in a very few narrow situations but seems more gimmick than practical tool. If you want a heavy rescue tool for manipulating molten metal- look into a petroGen torch. No...

Re: Freezing Water supply?

I have switched to 2 and 3 litre soda bottles, not so much for the water prep ( I've got multiple redundancies) but for the freezer itself. First, more thermal mass helps maintain temps in a no power situation and secondly, saves power by reducing cycle time. Empty space does not maintain well - kee...

Re: Remington 700

Quality trigger, bed and float and throw away the deresonator. Unfortunately Remington has tarnished their reputation in the last several years - it has become hit or miss, pun intended, to get one that will really shoot. This of course depends on you standards. 1 moa is sufficient for most hunting ...

Here in central Texas, the biggest problem is the "methican American" tribe. Still a few big cats but they're more likely to run when approached. Javalina and wild boar can ruin your day in a hurry.
