Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

Got a new kerosene jug. (A nice one) and it came with a couple stickers. I then decided to combine those two stickers with some other ones and decorate a coleman stove... http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u43/111t/E4D0F42E-81F3-48B0-A87E-D5BC3B721365_zpsapduzck1.jpg http://i165.photobucket.com/albu...

Re: Best Jerry cans---and where to buy

I have a few of those water jugs. There's no doubt in my mind that they are robust enough to hold fuel. Material they are made out of would be fine with fuel. In fact they're probably more robust the many commercially available fuel containers. However I agree that they are plainly marked water. The...

Sadly it looks like you can't get the traditional spouts anymore, the CARB spouts are not nearly as good. I knew I should have ordered a bunch of traditional spouts when I had the chance, now it is too late. At least I have the one that came with my can I bought years ago. See the demo in this vide...

Re: Best Jerry cans---and where to buy

I bought 5 Wavian cans from the old Grouch's military surplus. They have a deal that was 4/$200 with a cheapo nozzle included. Unfortunately they have been out of stock for some time now. SOE gets them from time to time. Case of 4/$250. Coleman's military surplus has them in the catalog. I'm encoura...

Re: Portable power solutions thread.

Here's my take. Still experimental at this point. Beware. It's a bit of an Anker commercial. Just know that I bought all of it. The way I figure it was a bit over $300.

Re: The Suburban Shotgun: Is it really needed?

I'm not really a big fan of mixing loads in the tube. I would guess that I would personally lose track of what was about to come out of the gun. Buckshot in the chamber and the tube and slugs on a sidesaddle. It seems to me that if you find yourself staring down a shotgun or handgun barrel at someon...

There is a convenient handle on the top. Some of them have the vinyl lining which makes them quite w...

Re: Coleman Dual/Multi Fuel Stove and Lanterns: FO?

Colemans 'dual fuel' stoves burn coleman fuel or gasoline. Modern gasoline is a terrible stove fuel. Kerosene on the other hand is an ideal Prepper fuel. It is cheaper than coleman fuel when purchased at the pump, it's safer to store, has better long term shelf life and can be used in many emergency...

Re: The Suburban Shotgun: Is it really needed?

One of the things that makes a shotgun very effective against an unarmored human target is that it is ridiculously overpowered for that task. If you look at the 5.56 rifles, they were designed from the ground up to be the ideal fighting tool. They were designed to be lightweight, Carry many rounds a...

I picked up two of the polartec 300 jackets for $30 each from either old grouch surplus or colemans I can't remember which. The jacket looks identical. The tags are a little different. They say 'made expressly for south Florida goodwill. Strange. Anyway it is ridiculously warm. http://i165.photobuck...

Re: A QUIET replacement for a roarer burner

I use mine a lot with kerosene. While the caps are sealed, the spaces inside aren't particularly tight. (At least compared to a layer of soot) This might be a question for Gary. I've never had an issue personally.

I'll send him an email.

Re: Bear Bells.

There's a story about the famous hiker Colin Fletcher was hiking out west somewhere and met a ranger. When the ranger heard where he was headed he insisted that Fletcher take a firearm and gave him his revolver due to grizzly bear activity in the area. (Those were the days.)
