Re: What kinda BOOTS do you wear

My current job (Federal contractor, working in construction) requires safety boots, so I picked up a pair of Timberland Pro Mudslingers. I got the waterproof version, $125 shipped from Timberland. After two months of 12-14 hour days on my feet wearing them, I have to say they're fucking excellent. ...

Re: What is your favorite beer OR what are you currently try

I don't have a great selection to choose from, but I managed to pick up a case of Newcastle's seasonal "Werewolf" Blood Red Ale. Not bad.

Re: Defensive .38 Spl ammo?

Buffalo Bore makes good ammo, but be aware that they do inflate their velocity claims a bit based on the independent tests I've seen. I'd also like to see independent pressure testing of their hotter loads. They claim to achieve higher velocities than other manufacturers can, while still staying wi...

Re: The Official ZS DEBTSQUAD: BODY COUNT thread.

Good advice, thanks everyone. I'm pretty secure in my job for at least the next two years. I'm a contractor and that's how long my current project will run (at least). I anticipate no trouble finding a new position making a similar wage after that, although a month or two between projects is entirel...

Okay, this seems like an appropriate thread to ask for advice on this. My financial situation has drastically improved recently, and I currently have very little debt in relation to my income.

Re: Defensive .38 Spl ammo?

Speer Gold Dot Short Barrel 135-grain +P is probably the best currently available defensive loading for .38 Special out of a J-Frame. Speer defensive loads are top quality, so the reliability is there. Performs very well on FBI gel tests compared to other .38 loads, good penetration and great expans...

Re: Role Playing- what type of gun would you choose?

Difficult choice, and good work putting a challenging mix of items together, Pete. In the end, I had to go with the handgun. I leaned toward the Saiga .308 for a while, but the single magazine and low capacity eventually nixed it for me. The Beretta is a solid gun, I'm very familiar with them as I'v...

Already have a IWB concealed holster I like. Won't be needing any suggestions on concealed carrying in this thread.

Re: OWB Holster Advice

Are you planning on carrying on a regular belt or a duty belt? The belt I wear is leather, 1.75' wide, and the site I bought it from says 5.5mm to 6mm thick. Okay, so not a duty belt. Safariland 6377 or 6378 should do you right, I'd go with the 6377 (linked above) because I've never found a paddle ...

Gold standard is Safariland. The 6377 is a fucking steal for the ALS thumb break system at 30 bucks http://i.imgur.com/Iz3EKOR.jpg Locks in similar to a Serpa but you use your thumb to unlock the weapon as opposed to your trigger finger. This is considered absolute minimum for OWB carry. Ravens and...

Re: What gun to repel a mob of bikers

A full-sized pistol with attached light. Probably with an extended magazine. Something like this, for example:

A little large to be concealed on the person in all types of clothing, but easy to carry in the vehicle.

Re: Motorcycle Gang Road Rage

1. Avoid drawing their attention in the first places. Large mobs of people can be dangerous, whether they're an organized criminal gang, a group of low-grade punks, or just a group of normal people caught up in the pack mentality. Pull off and let them go by, if necessary. 2. LOCK THE FUCKING DOORS!...

Re: Mk18 vs soocom 16 EBR

Teotwaki has a point with volumes of fire vs deliberate aimed fire. I personally would go with the SOCOM 16. It does cost more, is heavier and carry less ammo but the lethality and range are just as important. Over penetration is the only downside in my mind but with the proper ammo and situational...

Re: Choose your gun; variations on a theme.

Echoing others, the Colt M4-type. It fills two major roles, hunting and defense, and does them both well. No other weapon on that list can fill both of those roles as well as an M4-type 5.56.
