Re: Food Storage Discussion Thread

Quick question. What long term foods are safe to store in the garage if they are kept in Mylar and 5 gal buckets? Also, how well does #10 cans and Mylar work? If I can't store it in the garage I'm going to have to look into using #10 cans and storing it under our beds and on the floor in closets. I'...

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

I really like that setup on the last one. The shelving on the first one would be great if they had made it with 2x6's instead of 2x4's. I just picked up 30 of those plastic bins in the last one, gottum for free. :clap:

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

I might have missed it skimming through all the pages but does anyone have bench plans?

I just bought a new house and I'm going to have a good amount of space to build a new reloading bench. I've found some plans I like but I figured I would get some advice from guys who have spent time reloading.

Thanks to the guy who said he was signing up on the ZS boards. The jump start saved my butt. Now lets hope the half dead alternator gets me home.

Hopefully I'll be posting some pictures from my first reloading session. I've finally got everything I need to do .45 and 9mm and after spending a small fortune Saturday buying 9mm I realized I need to get reloading.

Re: Looking for pro/con 9mm vs. .45

There is also the option of reloading your own .45acp :crazy: . See what I said about a religious debate? I'm so hooked on .45 that I started reloading so I can afford to shoot it.

Re: Looking for pro/con 9mm vs. .45

A search will bring up tons of info on this. This might be the most debated topic in all of firearms. This one almost breaks down into more of a religious debate rather than a real conversation over the pro's and con's of each load. Here is the simple break down. 9mm is smaller, which means smaller ...

Re: Is tumbling fired brass crucial?

Make sure it's used. The new ones still have all the chemicals inside of them and can gunk up your tumbler. Or that's what the guys who use dryer sheets tell me.

Protips for avoiding fogged up glasses while wearing a face covering in the cold? (Whether buff or shemagh.)

Re: WWYD if the residents were dead/gone

So, in other words.. Your opinion is that people who might not afford 6 months worth of food or people not prepared for just such disasters should die of starvation/hypothermia/illness because of their lack of money/ preparedness ?

Re: WWYD if the residents were dead/gone

No I'm saying that those people's lack of planning doesn't give them the right to take other peoples stuff. If that means they die then that has to be on them. I've prepared, just because someone near me hasn't does not mean he gets to take advantage of my hard work. There is an saying that goes "La...

Nope, not yours. Never was never gonna be. If you need to take other peoples stuff you failed at prepping. Prepping will only get so so far.. What if this is say, 5 months after the disaster? Should I just leave the supplies there for someone else to take? If you don't own them and you can't provid...

Crypto, is it consider hazardous waste on the concentration of lead in the water. I ask because here in our area all of the houses built in the 40's and 50's have lead drain pipes.

Re: What to do, if you come across a hunter's blind or camp

Wonder why I'm on someone's property. If they're on my property then I'm going to try and see if someone is in the blind. If not, I take the blind down, put a note up that says if you want it back you can contact me. That's how we handle illegal hunters on private land now.
