Re: Social Unrest Going Viral Globally

Sources I listened to say riots are spreading around the world in opposition to lockdowns and 250,000,000 people are at risk of starvation due to economic problems resulting from lockdowns. Something especially for non-US ZSers to pay attention to. I expect to see more of this in the US too if lock...

Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

Well, I got the voting part checked off this morning. It was all calm and safe, no protesters (thank God). 12ga ammo is nearly impossible to find in my area right now and stores are limiting purchases to 5 boxes when they do have it. Sheesh. We topped off on food and other supplies this weekend. Sa...

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

As others have said, the Market at large might not be a dependable source of parts or replacements in times of trouble; although I'd say the market disruptions follow a fairly predictable pattern, and those parts being more common and cheaper the 3.5 out of 4 years more than makes up for a few mont...

Re: How can you buy milsurp in today's market?

Those little Truppe Special Carcano carbines that have been floating around for the last couple months keep tempting me. So far I've been able to resist by thinking about not wanting to add another caliber....and by stroking my Ishy Bastard Scout. :rofl: https://www.budsgunshop.com/images/hiRes/411...

Something amusing just occurred to me. At least, it amuses me. A lever-action fed from stick mags.

I am honestly not at all afraid of AI that can pass the Turing Test. I would not be surprised if several have not already done so.


That said I would shit my pants over the AI that would intentionally fail the Turing Test.

I don't think it's a binary choice. There's too many factors.
This. Very much this.

Your DG of choice may not be common. Doesn't mean the caliber can't be.

Re: Non-COVID Casualties from The COVID Lockdown

I remember when the shutdown was first starting, one of the first things I saw was a woman's viral post on social media. In it, she tells the story of how she had saved up and started a business, a fitness studio, and gotten it up and running that month-and then BAM, shutdown. And she's tearfully t...

Re: Sleep during Disaster/Crisis

Didn't watch the video yet... But one thing I picked up from traveling and being a nomad, when sleeping with gear, always have it strapped to you. For packs and bags, I always look the straps around my feet or arms, etc. Makes it tougher for the snatch and grab when you're nodding off. When I was i...

The closest thing I have to the video below is my time on the street. I handled it by being decent to all & not being pushed around or run off.
