Re: Anorak / Parka What is it good for?

I just can't believe these are $11 each! I'm sure if these had a little silk screened NorthFace logo they would be at least $100.

I'm sure I'll find an excuse to wear them over the coming weeks.

Thanks for the replies. TacAir, thanks for the pic.

Anorak / Parka What is it good for?

I recently ordered some Mil Surplus stuff and added this link to vendor to the order, just got them (2 for $22) yesterday. http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5161/5306206527_08e4da1961.jpg Frankly, I don't know what is the expected use, I don't think I've seen anyone actually wearing anything similar.

Re: Motion Powered Watches

watches that wind themselves, or 'automatic movements' as they're called, tend to be the most delicate of all clockwork designed used in watches these days. The simple reason is that there's a lopsided weight thats relatively heavy, rotating around a central shaft in the watch, and its just not a g...

Re: stryder knives

The 'Strider' knife company puts out a heavy duty blade for all I've read. They are sold by an ex-con / stolen valor / fake spec ops type owner (Mr. Burger aka. Mr. Strider). Good knives, shady designer/owner. I believe there are better CUSTOMS at Strider production prices. For heavy duty exceptiona...

Re: What data would you put on a bug out laptop?

Maybe I've missed it, but those USB Pen Drives should really be bootable. Have a copy of Ubuntu or something like that so that you don't depend on the host computer to access or read those files. You can also access files from computers with defective Windows installations which won't run correctly.

Re: Thoughts on Hemp fiber clothing for Bug Out purposes?

This thread interests me. I'm a desert dweller; for me cottons are good shit, rather than being a death sentence. I like the idea of something that's similar, but more abrasion resistant. I'll see if I can get some hemp products and do a pepsi-challenge on hikes this summer. I'm on the Caribbean (f...

Re: Minding your own business, suddenly, engulfed by toxic cloud

This happened to me 24 years ago during my first fall (season) at work. I was kneeling by a roll up side door repairing wooden pallets, behind me one of our forklift drivers hit a 45 gallon drum of ammonia (liquid). His fork punctured the drum and he knocked it over.

Side note to the porn store ref's. Those cheap floppy dildo's make great fire starting material. Anybody who's about to try it, use caution and cut like a 1" section and "test" that.

The barrel restricting the slide movement is laughable. I can rack my g19 slide by thumping it on the ground at the right angle. I know because I just tried.

I'm sorry SMoAF but I'm going to have to file this one under user negligence. You were carrying around a Glock with a round in the chamber and believed that it has an empty chamber. If the gun hit the ground, I think it's physically impossible for it to chamber a round, unless it hit an edge and th...
