Re: Solar powered watch

I picked up the Casio 1300 "Pathfinder" about 8 years ago and it has taken some serious beatings and keeps on ticking. This one but I used my 20% coupon from REI when buying: http://www.amazon.com/Casio-PAW1300-1V-Pathfinder-Watch-Black/dp/B000WCOBJW I don't use many features other than the time, al...

Re: When people find out you're a prepper

I've sort of given up trying to educate people. There was a time in the US when it was a given that you were prepared and able to take care of yourself, now it is a crazy notion. I think the other benefit of not trying to fight a losing battle is OPSEC, I've had too many of the "well if a disaster h...

Re: Your pet is quite plump....

I love dogs and I think their help with security both as a lookout early warning and offensive ability if big enough makes them very valuable alive but if it is completely desperate then sorry Fido we have to eat.

Re: What long arm and handgun are you using to bug out?

XD45 Service and SOCOM 16 for me Ruger 10/22 Target Tactical and Ruger Mark III 22/45 for the wife. I might switch to my Beretta 92FS if I get a Storm CX4, the pros are I can share mags and ammo, the cons is far less firepower than the XD45/SOCOM 16 combo. Now if I had to keep my firearms hidden I w...

Re: A VERY, VERY interesting read.

I only found it to be a VERY interesting read, not VERY VERY. He is wrong on several "facts" he states. For example he says: "(Natural) Gas itself will start running out from 2020 on" The US in Pennsylvania alone has over 100 years supply thanks to fracking and has opened up unheard of supplies acro...

Re: EDC: Preparedness versus obsession

What gets me are the guys that carry every thing but what they'll most likely need because of the cool factor. For example they have 2 guns, 3 knives, and samerai sword but only $6 in cash and no cell phone charger outisde their home. I found you can never have too many of those, I keep one at home,...

Re: Safe & Legal Mock Urban Bugout?

Some good stuff here but what strikes me is the lack of a destination. There are only 2 reasons to ever ever ever bug out: 1. You have a better place to go, it is already stocked and you own it or they are expecting you or 2. Your current location is completely uninhabitable (example: radiation, fir...

Re: Another CERT Drill

I went to the first few classes in my area's CERT training and noticed basically every one there were wanna-be firefighters and cops and the CERT members role was really just to get water for the real heros so I stopped going.

I'm glad the CERT program in your area is more productice.

Nice review, I have been on the hunt for .22 AR. From what I understand the lower on the 522 can't later be used to put a 556 upper on which is the one downside.
