Re: Quick, defend yourself: What do you have on hand RIGHT n

I feel like I answered this a couple of years ago, curious to see if I'm any better off today. I'm at work, and according to the handbook guns are not allowed. But, I might just have a Bersa .380 (w/ 2 mags) and a Glock 17 (w/ 2 mags) within reach. Other items of potential use: 2 pocket knives (a sp...

Re: Improvise... NOW!

OK, I'm traveling on business, flew into Toronto yesterday. Sitting in a conference room at a printer at midnight. So I have a backpack with misc supplies in it, including a couple of powerbars, several books including a book on camping and backpacking skills, and a 50ft coil of paracord. No knives,...

Re: Most Tragic Zombie Movie Deaths

I'm not sure it qualifies as the most tragic, but one of my favorite comes from the remake of Dawn of the Dead. At the beginning of the movie when one of the main characters is racing her car down the road being chased by her zombified husband. Looking through the back window of the car watching him...

Re: George A. Romeros Diary of the Dead

I'm in the camp of "didn't hate it, good concept but they really fell short".

Loved the clown scene and the amish scything, but found myself irritated by a lot of the main characters.
And to find such a great retreat/panic house and totally screw it up? VERY annoying.

Re: Worst/Most Hated zombie films

I have to agree that Zombie Nation is the worst I've seen. Got suckered in at Walmart by a cool lenticular DVD cover, but quickly learned why it was only $5 (or something like that). It's not often I don't finish watching a movie, but I had to bail on this one.

Re: Worst is yet to come

Ironically, despite the terrible housing market and decreased values, somehow in Cincinnati our property values have gone UP! Again! Got my bill for property taxes and they have increased again! Nice to know eh? (now try to sell the house for that "increased" value, and let's see what happens) :?

Ham radio

It sounds like getting a Ham radio license would be a good idea. When the leftover hurricane went through Cincinnati a few months ago phones were out from a while, and cell phone circuits were all busy. Kind of gives a taste of what could happen if the SHTF. Any recos on a good starter radio to be a...

GPS recommendations

Any recommendations for a good GPS unit for hiking, camping, geocaching and general SHTF use? I've had a Garmin eTrex and eTrex Legend, but I think the Legend has crapped out on me. Since it looks like I'll be replacing it, I'm looking for recos. I use it a lot for travel and geocaching, so loaded N...

Re: If the Gov't decided to form a vol. "Citizens Militia"..

The original US concept of militia, was that every eligible citizen was the militia, regardless of registration. Militia members were expected to report with their own arms, ammunition, and sufficient sundries. http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/10/usc_sec_10_00000311----000-.html I'd heard that inf...

Re: aerial pictures of your neighboorhood

Interesting idea. So far I've used aerial pictures for planning with my family on where to meet if there is an emergency, and as a kind of "what would you do?" game with my 12yo son. I've been teaching him how to read maps and some basic orienteering. He's been playing some strategy war games on the...

Re: I'm not worried about Zombies ...

+1 on the nosy neighbors. My neighbors across the street have non-traditional work schedules which allow them to be home in the mornings and/or afternoons. That's how I found out (or we THINK we know) that a member of the family renting the house next door to us is dealing drugs out of the house. A ...

Re: You are at work... and the undead invade!

Between the really good and the really crappy situations, I'm probably in the middle somewhere. I work in an office building in downtown Cincinnati, about 10 blocks north of the river and 8 blocks from the east end of the city, the direction I need to go in order to get home. We have a no weapons po...

I like to play the "guess who's carrying" game out in public too. Probably not as good at it as I'd like to be, but I keep trying. +1 on the good holster comment, it's made a huge difference to me. I just make sure any unbuttoned button-down shirt is buttoned a little before going outside. As far as...

Re: The .22 Caliber Myth

My approach has been to keep 10/22 in the car with one bag, with the hopes of replacing with a Henry Survival 22. If I have to bug out from home, my (very responsible) 11 yr old son can carry the 10/22 and I will have to decide between Mini-14, 12 gauge, and lever 30-30. Until I can get my wife comf...

I have 3 of the small lockboxes Kaiser described.

I have one of the mid-sized Stack-on safes as well, bolted to the wall...

Re: Boonie Hats

I have a few boonies, which I really like and get good use out of, but for bad weather or times when I know I'll get wet, I LOVE my Tilley. Especially when rafting, cause it floats too. They have several styles depending on what size brim you like, but they do cost a bit more than your typical boonie.
