Re: Name your Dream 3 Gun Carry

I don't know if I have a true dream 3 gun carry but if I had to go into long-term survival mode I would want a VZ 58 and Glock 17 for defence and a Savage model 42 for food.

Re: History Channel Alone survival series

Kinda done with the Artic. Ready for Vancouver Is again or similar. It will be time for a change in scenery next season but I was very impressed with this season. They got dropped off a week later and there was extra motivation ($500,000 extra to be exact) to stay well into the winter and deal with...

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms related)

210 rounds of 55 grain PMC 5.56 from the only place that I know still had it in stock around here. How much was it? It was 12.99 for a box of 20. So $.65 a round. The store owner says he bought it in bulk a while back so it may be a couple years old. It is FMJ so I plan on just using it for range a...

Re: Shooting what fits you vs commonality of parts & mags?

I voted option A. As long as it is reliable, buy what is comfortable and you are more likely to practice with. That will probably be the best option 99% of the time. Buying an extra gun for parts will only make that option more attractive. However, if we are preparing for zombie PAW, my choice chang...

Your mentioned power tools. I bought a Ryobi 40 volt cordless trimmer and spare battery a few weeks ago.

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms related)

Yesterday, I bought a M&P 15. Even though I have handled the M16 platform since enlisting at 18 this is actually my first AR. My initial want was a Ruger SR556 but I could not find one locally so I bought the M&P. I also bought two mags and a box of ammo. I already had some of both on hand that I bo...

Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

I agree that most of the unrest we are seeing is media driven. However, I will note that for many of not most, perception turns into reality. So regardless of the cause, the effect will be the same. And it is the effect that will affect us. That is why I prep.

The issue in the prone that the vest setup creates is really that it does not allow you to get as low to the ground ...
