Re: Preparedness for the College/University Student

TheLemonMan and JeeperCreeper, Thanks for your responses. My wife and I were both first generation college students who came from pretty conservative backgrounds. We both went batshit crazy in college (different colleges in different states, and several years apart). I'm a prosecutor in a mid-sized ...

Re: Preparedness for the College/University Student

Thanks for this post. I'm sending my eldest child, a daughter, off to college this fall. We don't know where yet, but it will likely be anywhere from a five to 12 hour drive. She, like her mother, think it's cute that Dad's a prepper, but she has no interest in it herself. Likewise, she has no inter...

Re: Firearms Help for book characters.

The badass vet should have an M4 from a decent manufacturer with a modern optic. His shotgun should either be an 870 or a Mossberg 590. He would probably carry a Sig or a 1911 for a handgun, but a Glock would be credible. Your redneck boys would have a lever action 30-30 and a mid-range bolt gun wit...

Re: Bug Out Gear Deals (Post 'em when you find 'em) I

If you have a Firehouse Subs near you, they're selling used five gallon pickle buckets for $2 each. The proceeds go to a charity that buys emergency equipment for first responders. They're food grade plastic buckets with metal bales and lids that fit and seal. They need to be washed. I bought one to...

Re: Considering a Kel-Tec P-11 for $150, yea or nay?

I carry one. I don't love it, but I can hit a silhouette with every round at 10 yards, rapid fire. Like others have said, the trigger sucks, but you can deal with it. I don't get to shoot it that much, but just about every time I go to the range, I try to put a box through it. It's reliable. It's no...

Re: What are YOU currently lusting after? (firearms related)

A part of me really wants to get two of those S&W Model 64 police trade in .38s from J&G Sales. I'd like to strategically place them around the house as emergency guns.

Re: Power is off and freezer is full- wwyd?

We've had spring storms around here lately that are the worst, and most frequent, that I can remember. Consequently, the power has been going out a lot.

I may need to spend some money fast

My medical FSA expires Tuesday, and if I don't spend all of the money in it, the money goes back to my employer. I'll know exactly how much tomorrow, but it could be several hundred dollars. First aid kits are a covered expense. I'm pretty well situated for day to day stuff here at the house, and in...
