Re: What are you doing to strengthen your immune system?

My kids will be fine. In my family wearing a mask is normal. My wife has been wearing a Vogmask for over 5 years, basically every time we go to stores like Target/Walmart etc, ever since she got diagnosed with Lyme disease. As for social distancing we have a large extended family locally, with 14 co...

Re: What are you doing to strengthen your immune system?

Since I've been furloughed my outdoor time has been cut in half, so I'm basically trying to spend as much time outside as possible, taking the boys fishing, scouting for deer season etc. Sunlight is always good for you. Sitting around make me fat...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

So I've got a Mossberg 20 gauge pump that came with 2 barrels. Up until recently I've never tried the slug barrel and I figured I should probably know how it works. It's ported and has rifle style sights. Even with the rear sight adjusted all the way, both slugs I found (slugs made for rifled barre...

Re: Several must read SCi-fi based Apocalyptic novels

Trilobyte was good. A unique take on if robots were to take over the world. Honestly it is a more realistic take on if Skynet existed. I enjoyed every page of it. If there's going to be a second book, which I hope happens, I'll be in line to buy it... Five Roads to Texas was also good. It's a single...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

At my local gun store I can find 7.62x39 for $300 for 1000 rounds of Red Army Standard 122 grain FMJ ammo and .556 Lake City XM855 5.56 62 Grain FMJ ammo for $479 for 1000 rounds. I however cannot find 9mm or 30-30 to save my life. I am well stocked up on 9mm but I let my 30-30 stockpile drop down t...

Re: Ammunition Storage Do's & Dont's

I don't really do anything special, just stack it in the closet. I do however, still have a 500 round box of Federal .22LR that I bought around 98-99, and for some reason never got around to shooting it. It then followed me to college in Az, then back here to Mo, and nothing special was done to keep...

Re: What have you bought lately? (Bug Out Version)

Since I'm currently still furloughed I've got a lot of free time to read so I figured since I've just finished these 2 books I'd recommend them.

Re: Bow vs air rifle for shtf/prepping?

If you've watched Edwin Sarkissian's video there I'm not surprised a compound bow goes through several inches. I've seen what my 70lbs draw compound will do to a 200lbs deer. And the crossbow broadhead bolt going through and out the other side, no surprise there either. That particular crossbow, the...

Re: Bow vs air rifle for shtf/prepping?

For me personally, I like a bow vs. an air rifle. Honestly for a shtf/prepping situation I'd prefer my .22lr or some .22 shorts over the air rifle. Better stopping power than an air rifle, unless you're talking about one of the bigger air rifles that use a compressor to refill them, those are awesom...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

Here in Missouri we have more bullfrogs than you can shake a stick at. We usually kill them 1 of 2 ways. Snagging with a fishing pole or with a .22lr. I usually clean them by cutting they in half right above the rear hindquarters, cut the feet off at the ankle, and peel the skin off with some pliers...

Re: Several must read SCi-fi based Apocalyptic novels

I've seen "Lucifer's Hammer" mentioned on here, and I love it. I'd also suggest "Footfall", or "Ringworld: A Novel", honestly anything by Larry Niven. In the theme of cheesy 80's books "Swan Song" by Robert McCammon is good. Bestial: Werewolf Apocalypse is surprisingly good for a book about a sudden...

Congrats. By the time you get to the 4-6 kids range you will wonder why you ever worried about if you could take care of one.

I've found a big long chunk of oak, about 3-4" around makes for a good improvised club. Often times when walking a train, at night especially, I will find (or bring with me) a piece of oak or whatnot to use as a walking stick/chase off dogs or coyotes. Never failed me yet...

I picked this up a few days ago from Amazon for $16.99 and finished it in a day and a half. It was pretty slow for the first few chapters, but quickly got interesting and stayed that way. It ends on a bit of a cliffhanger that makes you want to see how it continues... The whole premise of the book i...
