For the record, I still want one of these but I don't wanna make it myself. I'll trade you for some homebrew beer of your preference!

camelbak bags different from year to year?

i'm shopping for a coyote tri-zip, and the local sports store here carries a tri-zip, but in mossy oak. the material they use is that soft material meant to not be as loud, so i asked if they could order me the coyote one, and we started shopping to see how much it would cost. we found two different...

Re: Bears. Advice needed.

If you get attacked by a bear and are otherwise unarmed, grab a decent branch and wedge the bottom against a tree, let the bear skewer himself as he charges... and hope you're damned lucky! Haha. I saw this in a Anthony Hopkins / Benecio Del Toro movie... I think it was called The Hunted. It was a ...

Re: where to get velcro backed pouches/clips/loops/etc

thanks for the tip on maxped, but i'm surprised at the prices. this might be a good excuse to try my hand at stiching my own. Their gear is heavy duty as all hell. It'll prolly last forever. It took me awhile to pull the trigger too, but what costs more: buying 4 $25 bags and all of them breaking o...

Re: where to get velcro backed pouches/clips/loops/etc

i believe that maxped sells velcro backed panels with PALS on the other side, so you would attach the pouch or pocket or whatever to the panel, and that panel velcros to the inside of the bag you're looking at. haven't seen any clips, but i'd imagine you could fabricate a velcro tab for a carabiner ...

Re: advice for california resident, WTB self defense handgun

Given your 10-round limitation, you should go with a heavier caliber than 9mm. For bears, 10mm in an autoloader (like a Glock 20/29) or .357 magnum in a revolver (Ruger, S&W) is the accepted standard. Don't bother with .45ACP, as it does not penetrate enough for bears. You can always go up to .44 m...
