Re: 308 MBR recommendations

"1. Accuracy: 2 MOA or better would be great. 2. Lightweight: I don't want to go over 9 pounds for a base rifle (without optics). 3. Price: under $1200 would be great. 4. Reliability: Don't want a rifle that jams often." I have a DPMS 308 AP4. 1. Best group was 5/8th in., but will certainly do 1 MOA...

Re: The small airport as a BOL?

I just paid my share of the replacement for a 24 volt battery (though they actually refer to as a 28 volt) in the plane I use. It is in a single case and costs right around $2,000. It does not use two batteries, though it is not uncommon for a plane including a single engine aircraft to have a stan...

Re: RIBZ Front Pack

I got these back in November and tried them out while deer hunting. They seem pretty room to keep a lot of gear in. Some of the space becomes less useable as it wraps toward your back if worn with a larger backpack. Someone else mentioned it, but the velcro straps are exposed to the rear and were gr...

Hello all, Ron L here - SERE SURPLUS Hello. Bob Vance, Vance Refridgeration. I knew it sounded familiar.

Re: Would You Try To Land?

If you want help it is simple. There will be a radar transponder. This will be set to a 4 digit number that is transmitted to Air traffic Control. Simply dial in 7700 and hit the "ident" button. You will see a very small light flash and that is like setting off the fire alarm. If you are within rad...

Re: Would You Try To Land?

I remember my first flight lesson. When asked if I could line up with the runway, I thought of playing a...

Re: Time to start thinking about my first pistol

Someone earlier mentioned a USP. While it's a beautiful firearm I find it a little complicated for carry. The one thing I do like about Glocks is the absence of external safeties. Point and shoot is a major concern for me in a carry gun. You point out USP not good for carry, in your opinion of cour...

Re: Time to start thinking about my first pistol

Basically, I agree with what mk_ultra said... Off the bat I would pick a Glock 19. Concealable, reliable, nice high capacity mags, 9mm ammo is "cheap" compared to other calibers. Plenty of add on toys later if you like. Can get one right around $450. It's true some love, some hate the grip angle. Si...

Good topic. Realizing it's a mental game helped a lot. Think of it this way... the little box of cigarettes in your pocket tells you what to do, you're not the one deciding. So ok, you go out and smoke. You know you're just going to want another one in a little bit, so there's no end to it. That's n...

The bulbous head acts as a sort of handle, or at least pommel, so that when you swing it, the head keeps it from slipping through your grip and flying out of your hand. You need to spank it less aggressively. If you're worried about it flying out of...

What are you using for pounding stakes? I'm going with a tarp setup now to keep it simple, cheap, and light. Are you actually carrying a heavy mallet?
