Re: My girlfriend and I are Joining the miltary

@OP, Long distance relationships don't work. Been there, done it. Twice. Same result. The army and your age isn't going to help either.

Hannibal, we've talked about it a lot, She understands but al...

Re: Show off your Low Profile Battle Gear!

This rig is meant to be discreet like the rest of my set up designed not to draw attention. In my opinion it is also a good balance between damn this is heavy ...and...oh shit... i think i am going to need another magazine. And yes i made it my self. http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h23/unslung/mp...

Re: Sheddi's EDC / GHB

Pretty good looking EDC Sheddi one thing I would add is more food, you said you only live 8 miles from home but i would suggest adding more food in case you have to take a long detour or if you were for some reason stranded at the workplace for an extended period of time. i carry a couple 1200 calor...

Re: roOism's EDCK

What kind of environment will you be bugging out to? The blankets are a good start but if your in a cold weather climate i would suggest a subzero rated sleeping bag and a thick, wide therma-rest that's what i use when i go backpacking Also food, you seem to have plenty of water and no food.

as far as LED lights go . Plenty of AA models out there . Smaller , lighter , brighter , better throw , adjustable brightness levels on some models , no bulbs to burn out . Check out Fenix or Inova lights . Even a Nite Eyes LED drop in for the mini would be a huge improvement . Actually , did not s...

I use the spyderco tri-angle sharp-maker. Best sharpening device I've ever used, to what jitterypillow said about over sharpening it does very little to blunter edges, i use it for finer work.

Re: What if a headshot doesn't do the job?

On the plus side, without a head, a zombie isn't going to be very effective. "Oh no, it's running in... a directon! It's run off that cliff! Oh no, I'm being poked at by a thing that can't tell where I am!" It's just not very terrifying, really. i agree with shrapnel, if their mutated enough to fun...
