Re: Hackers Take Down Largest Survival Website

Ping Flood attacks are pretty basic, unsophisticaed attacks. If one were trying to scheme to "manufacture panic", that would be a pretty poor way to do it. Especially considering the hostage demands are "be less popular" and the threat is something thats pretty irrelevant to survival blog community.

Re: EDC Bag recommendation

I was very fond of my 5.11 Rush 24 for my "EDC" gear. The level of small stuff organization that bag is capable of is fantastic. However I began to question the sanity of carrying around 15-20lbs of gear everyday, when I could be carrying 10-15lbs of gear if I had a lighter backpack. Checkout "Trave...

Re: The next big thing in military arms

The "next big thing" in military anything is going to be the consolidation of assets. I think were going to see the use of unmanned assets get pushed down to the point where a company becomes a fully deployable resource with its own indirect fire and air/ground support through the integration of hig...

Re: This probably isnt worth a new topic...

Sabre makes a small sized OC only canister (Sabre Red). This is what I generally recommend for folks that are worried about 4 legged nuisances. Having your own 4 legged critters around you adds a certain tactical wrinkle that your going to have to work out, though.

Re: Hydration bledders for 5.11 packs.

I have a Rush24, I have a 3L Camelbak in it. I seriously recommend not using one that size. I would also recommend looking into Osprey's Hydroform bladders, as they are designed with their own stay sheet to minimize barreling on the side that rests against your back. Allegedly these bladders are mad...

WA is a pistol type regulation if I read it correctly. "Right you are Mr Kotter!", to quote Arnold Horshack. WA means concealed pistol, not knife, blackjack, sap, shotgun, Katana or flamethrower.

From the videos and images I've reviewed, the voids in the staff or the "system" in general doesn't appear to be designed for that application. So its not about what I can hokey up, but what the manufacturer designed the product to do.

Re: California Superstorm? Yet one more thing to prep for...

This is why I try not to live in the low lying areas of the city. Even under "normal" rainfall these areas flood quite bad. We have two (technically three) major Malls that had to be built on 15' + stilts to cope with "normal" flooding.
