Re: Bug Out Gear Deals (Post 'em when you find 'em) I

The Classic Bucket : 12 pouches per bucket: 2 - Beef Stroganoff, 2- Chicken Teriyaki, 2- Beef Stew, 2- Lasagna w/meat, 2- Noodles and Chicken, 2- Granola w/Blueberries The Essential Bu...

Re: The Dead at Destitute Mountain

I rarely log in and post, but felt I should.

I've been reading this story since you started posting it, and it is some of the best fiction I've read online. Please keep it up! I can't wait for the next installment.

Re: Kahr CM9 "pocket" 9mm

The CM9 is great - it's basically the same as a PM9 with a few MIM parts, a spiral rather than hex rifled barrel, fewer/simpler cuts in the slide, and only a stainless slide instead of a black slide. For the price difference, I was glad to go with the CM9. It is easily the most accurate pocket pisto...

Re: What kind of Sig can you buy for $400?

I'm actually more jealous of the S&W - I'm a big fan of that era of weapons and I'm slowly growing my collection to include things like this. It helps that I already have a couple of (admittedly not as nice) P6's. They're surprising accurate and one of my favorite handguns to take to the range. My s...

Netflix find: Rammbock

Netflix recently added a German zombie film, Rammbock to their instant play. Rammbock is subtitled, so you'll have to read along, but the film itself is an excellent small scale zombie flick set in a German city at the start of a zombie apocalypse. It definitely isn't a shoot 'em up action film, whi...

I've been looking for a shooter grade broomhandle - any chance there's something like that floating in the pile?

Re: Need small gun suggestions.....

I agree with many others - the LCP and P3AT are great for concealable small autos. If you prefer a 9mm, the Kahr PM9 is just a tiny bit bigger, and has far superior fit and finish (and feel) than the P3AT - at more than twice the price. If I was selecting a new concealed carry gun, I'd be looking at...

Revisiting flexible swords - Urumis, a beltsword's ancestor

Some long term forum members may remember the hubbub around the rather infamous belt sword . At the time, the Urumi , or flexible sword didn't make it into the discussion . There are a number of YouTube videos available that show the stylized fighting styles now used with this traditional Indian wea...

Re: My SPR(ish) Build with PICS

If you want a factory round that'll do decently at long ranges, check out PRVI's 75 grain match (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct/?p ... ber=790565). It's what I and a friend run through our DCM guns when we're not loading 77 grain handloads.

Cherie Priest's Steampunk zombie novel: Boneshaker

As far as I can tell, Boneshaker is only available as a trade paperback, and is printed in a...

Re: Tech Sights for a 10/22 (Range Report added)

I've had Tech Sights on my 10/22 for a few months now. They're an amazing upgrade from the standard sights, and are highly adjustable. I've been able to become reasonably competitive with a friend who is a distinguished rifleman service rifle shooter at ranges up to 100 yards, and the sights are com...

I would have laughed so hard if they put the can opener inside the can.
