Re: Which is the better weapon Kukri or Katana?

Katana, wrapped in blue phone wire.... on second thought, the Kukri, cause it is very unlikely that you will get a quality katana, as most of them are built for looks not combat, its long think blade will damage easily. even with a cheap Kukri, you have a thick heavy blade, that is less prone to dam...

Re: 22LR in a rifle, ok for defense?

the only thing I have to add to moab's post, is that the only reason to pick a 22lr for self defense is if you have a condition that makes you too recoil sensitive to shoot anything else.

Re: Simple code book for open radio comms?

Re: pistol caliber carbine feedback

the Hi-Points are a real PIA to dissemble for cleaning. I typically clean mine with a blast of WD-40. I have no experience with the Mossberg 715T, but it looks like there are plenty of rails to hang stuff on. the Sub-2000 rifles can be found for under $300, especially the first generation. I prefer ...

Re: Home Defense Choices

of those choices the pistol is the best of the lot.

the 10/22 isn't a big round to be reliable at stopping a threat quickly, the other rifles have IMO too likely a chance of going through too many walls.

Can we expand it to guns we wish we'd bought? Because there are a lot of milsurp guns I really wish I'd bought when they were cheap.

And since I had a fire going already I was wandering out of my garage and putting the paper in the fire, and going back to unpack the next one.... How man...

I guess that this is going to be a non-issue.

Re: Revolver in 9mm: S&W or Chiappa?

the Chiappa, less muzzle flip, less felt recoil, and most importantly, it is different.

cheap prep idea, find apps for you phone to allow you to access what you think you might need in an emergency, just make sure that they run on the device, and don't rely on the network for storage.
