Re: New BOV

Thanks guys, it’s an interesting phenomenon that when you buy a vehicle you start seeing vehicles like it all over the place. Since I’ve been driving it I see big red SUV’s all over the place, which I never gave a second thought to before. Took it on a drive up a nearby canyon yesterday that had som...

https://i.ibb.co/jy31B19/FE65-A7-EA-C18-E-427-A-B9-DC-E88-F32-C378-AD.jpg Not exactly a grey man color (though now that I have it I see red suv’s & trucks everywhere), but it was a barely used government vehicle with 15k miles that I got for a song. It didn’t have the third row, so nobody wanted to...

Re: What's your prep New Year's Resolutions?

Physical fitness is priority number one. I don’t think I could hike a mile on a slight incline right now without having to take frequent stops. Wife got me a 50L pack for Xmas, gonna start loading that up with increasing weights and start hitting the trail. Otherwise, burn debt, increase food and wa...

Re: Jack of all trades lever gun.

Checked the local shops and one place had a stainless model in stock about $50 cheaper than the local big box stores ($619 vs $670, and way better customer service I might add). Went ahead and put it on layaway so I can pick it up after Christmas. My buddy of course got jealous, and found someone lo...

Re: Jack of all trades lever gun.

Thanks for the input folks. I think 30-30 is the route I’ll go. Wasn’t sure if it was stout enough for bigger game, but it sounds like it can handle anything I’d hunt in my area.

Jack of all trades lever gun.

Been looking at getting a Marlin levergun, for hunting/camping, shtf stuff, and because they’re cool. I know there’s no one round to rule them all, but I’m looking for a gun that won’t blow deer in half, but is also stout enough for larger game, elk and potentially moose. I’ve also had a bear encoun...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Looking at AR pistols at the local shop today, and ended up liking the Daniel Defense MK18 and Sig MCX over everything else they had. Between the two the MK18 was noticeably less bulky, and the price point was similar enough. Anyone have a preference? I'm leaning toward the Mk18, but not sure if the...

Re: Exterior Door Security

You should read up on common burglaries. A lot of homes are broken into from the front/side door, or a forced ground floor window. In the case of apartments, the issue of limits on how much you can do to the door/windows is a big reason for break-ins. 2 things you may want to do; if permitted to do...

Leaving the apartment today, went to lock the deadbolt and realized I grabbed my office keys and not the apartment keys, locked myself out of the apartment, nice. The lock had been getting a bit hard to open so I'd been meaning to replace it anyway, so I went and bought a new door handle, swung by w...

Re: Take down or traditional

I picked up a Savage Rascal on sale for around $120 last year, partly for my younger kid to have something to shoot, and partly thinking it'd be a decent pack/survival gun. I think the ruger pistols are ideal, but I liked the price and simplicity of a single shot bolt action.

Re: Vehicle Headrest Storage

Honestly with as many other small storage options that the majority of vehicles have, placing anything in or around the headrest seems unnecessary. If you have a small pouch like the above posted it would be just as simple to place it under a seat, in the trunk, the glove box, etc... I don't see how...
