Re: There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

I agree about the glue traps, it takes several hours for them to die and it's a bit rough to watch. My wife is fine with the snap traps, but not shooting them. Now the raccoon got a little to friendly and decided he was gonna snap and growl at me late one night as I was taking out the trash when I h...

Re: Most common ammo's in US?

I've been lucky. My local gun store always has ammo in stock, except for deer rifle calibers right now. I can find 9mm, 40, 45ACP, even .38 Special and .357 Mag, it's all a bit higher priced than I'd like, but not to badly over priced. Except for 22LR. They are selling that for $75 for 500 round blo...

Re: There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

Like Laager mentioned sticky traps work really well. When I worked at the Phoenix airport we had a HUGE rat problem. Their answer was glue traps. They worked really well. We were catching 4-6 rats per pad on a pad not really designed to hold that many. They'd get caught trying to crawl over each oth...

Re: Firearms Chat: [2021 - Aw, FFS!]

Panzer Arms M4. I'm not gonna lie, this definitely piqued my interest. I've always wanted the Benelli M4, but thought it was way over priced. Will definitely be looking into it.

Re: There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

I've done that wiring the bait trick to the trap before. It works well. Wire the cheese down, smear a bit of spray cheese on top of that, and bam. Dead mouse. Done it with Trix, etc before as well. But you'd better make sure the pets cannot get to it, or you'll be trapping your pet 1st. :) :) :)

Re: There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

Nothing is fail proof when it comes to rodents, but that sounds like it makes it hard for them to get anything. As far as pets are concerned, if you have kids do like we did. My 8 year old wanted a cat, a.k.a. Donut for his 4th birthday. He picked her out at the pound, and they've been inseparable e...

Re: There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

Mice can scale pretty much anything if it means getting free food. We had that problem years ago before I started at the railroad. We moved into a shitty little apartment in Kansas City that was apparently a magnet for mice. We found that any holes patched with metal mesh was great for stopping mice...

Re: How many mags do you consider "enough" for each gun?

I don't know if you consider Blazer ammo "quality' ammo per say, but last year I had 40 or so rounds out of 50 round box that took solid primer strikes, but failed to fire. This was out of my S&W M&P Pro .40. This was the second time that year I'd had an issue with PMC & Blazer ammo for my .40, so I...

Re: How many mags do you consider "enough" for each gun?

For me pretty much what everyone else has said. At least 3 minimum for my CCW pistol or backup pistol. My biggest problem with my CCW pistol is that the magazines for an M&P Pro are $45 each, but at least hold 15 each. My back up Beretta Nano magazines are only $25 each, but only hold 6 to 8 rounds....
