Excellent discussion of the pros and cons of this light, so thank you. So good in fact, I'd urge you to repost in a separate review thread. More people would see it and benefit from your insights.

Re: Hi there

Welcome to ZS. Hopefully you've already found some good information on whatever you were looking for.

We've got an interesting discussion going on now with another new member about BOBs and EDCs. He's in an urban environment, which presents a whole different set of challenges for prepping.

Re: What happened to last years Savage rifles?

I don't know, but I'm still kicking myself for not picking up the Savage 11 Scout in .308 last year when it was something like $400 with the mfr rebate. Those 10 round magazines were/are scary expensive though.

Re: On you at all times BOB? What do you keep on you?

I live in a city where cars get broken into all the time, so I can't keep a bag in my car. Well, that sucks. I used to live in some pretty low rent parts of the East Coast Portland and I had the same problem. I quickly learned to never lock my car. Because nothing I dared leave in it was anywhere n...

Re: Noob 1st bag question: big new or supplement?

I have a slightly different take on answering this question. Take a moment to consider: what you mean by bug out? Under what circumstances you would chose that option over sheltering in? And should you make the decision to leave your home, when, if ever, do you expect to return? Also give some thoug...

Re: Paris is burning

I've been under the assumption that they were renovating the Notre Dame church for like the past couple years. I wonder if this fire could've been the result of a work incident and not something more sinister. Anyway, here's hoping they can get the fire contained before any more of the structure is...

Re: Coffee not essential for life, Swiss government says

Those Swiss government officials will belatedly reconsider the definition of "essential for survival" when pitchfork-wielding, caffeine-deprived mobs storm their offices during the next major disaster.

Their fateful last words: "Let them drink tea."

Re: Servus (greetings from Germany)

Welcome to the forums. As in many things in life, we all could learn a lot from our elders about prepping for challenging times. As Halfpint points out, planning around being part of a like-minded community that stays put, rather than bugging out as a lone wolf, is almost always the best approach.
