Re: Keltec PF9 or Ruger LCR 357?

Had both. Sold the PF9 because it failed repeatedly. I'm used to shooting a S&W 642, so the LCR 357 is easier to shoot if you stick to 38. With 357, it's a bitch to shoot. But it's nice to have that option. Don't kid yourself. All of these little guns are a bitch to shoot. If I had to rank them for ...

Re: FANTASTIC!!! I might have to bugout/INCH really soon!!!!

Good for you! Now start saving money like there's no tomorrow. It takes discipline, but it's not nearly as hard as living on the streets of Massachusetts in the winter! :) Having an emergency stash of cash is an important prep. I read that most American's don't even have $1000 saved, which is crazy....

Re: Solar power idea for after SHTF

As a bugger-inner, my strategy would be to have the lights on (the solar and battery powered ones, that is) so that potential looters know someone is home. I figure if I don't have lights on or if I turn them off so no one notices my house, they'll just think the place is empty and they can loot it...

Re: J Frame VS. LCR?

So I just recently bought me a 357 LCR, and it has replaced my 642 as my daily CCW. Why? Three reasons: 1. The trigger is better. 2. The recoil is less. 3. It shoots 357s if I want. The trigger is obviously better. I don't think it's a matter of opinion. Try them back to back, and it's obvious. The ...

Re: how do you store your firearms

Mine are stored with mags loaded, but not one in the chamber, and they're usually kept out of sight so if some dumbass grabs it that has no discipline and starts fondling the trigger it wont go bang, at least not without them having to cycle the action manually, in which case I'd have a moment to s...

Meh. I can use most swords to resonably defend myself. I can probably get food with a bow most of the time. I know how to use a sling, an atlatl and slung shot. As a last ditch, I can probably use a knife effectively enough. Oh, and I know how to use just about every firearm made in the last 500 ye...

Re: Learn 18 Weapons? Which Ones?

Thanks for the replies. I especially like the suggestion of the claymore mine. Hadn't thought of that one! :) FYI, originally, hand-to-hand combat was not one of the 18 weapons because it was assumed that, before learning weapons, you would spend years learning Kung Fu. Regarding the manual of arms ...

Learn 18 Weapons? Which Ones?

Okay, humor me for a second. Historically, Kung Fu masters were expected to know 18 weapons like the staff, the sword, the spear, etc. The idea was for them to be well rounded in their training. Typically, they would specialize in 1 or 2 weapons, but be able to handle any weapon reasonably well. The...

Re: J Frame VS. LCR?

I doubt I would actually fire .357 in the LCR, but it's only a bit more than the 38 LCR. I too have heard of the LCR having a nicer trigger. I've got a few K frames I love, and have never shot a Ruger DA revolver. Just trying to feel out opinions and issues with either. Well, I would recommend shoo...

Re: J Frame VS. LCR?

I'm also thinking about buying an LCR. I carry a J frame (S&W 642) daily. I admit that I've never loved a gun quite so much. It's pretty, it points well, it kicks my ass when I shoot it but it still hits what I aim at, and it's easy to carry. What's not to like? But the 357 LCR tempts me because it'...

Great replies. Thanks. I didn't know that about firewood, so thanks for the tip.

But I'm back to the original problem -- what can we store in the garage? No food, no ammo, no firewood. I've got all this space. What can I do with it?
