Why not a live aboard blimp?

Why not a solar/wind/bio fuel powered blimp?

You can use compressed air guns to kill hordes as you hover just above them.

Take down Rome circa 33 restart modern civilization

OK, this is the premise. Imagine if you will there was a breakthrough in science that actually allowed time travel (or multiverse travel, same difference). Now because this science and technology is new the find that the costs and energy requirements to operate it are incredible prohibitive, so much...

Re: 120mm: Long term rifle storage

And finally I recommend you not bury anything of value in an area outside your watchful eye or control. Especially a firearm. Ammo maybe. Yea, I have a bit of an issue with that too. Burying it in your basement or putting in your walls is one thing, but outside there are just so many bad thing that...

Re: 120mm: Long term rifle storage

If somebody really suspects you have buried contraband and is charged with finding it, they will be using a combo of metal detectors and ground penetrating radar, a few nails on the surface aren't going to throw them off. Second, seeding the ground with metal while the rest of the area has no metal...

I'm not big on burying supplies too much can go wrong (water damage, rust, a dude with a metal detector...ect) hidden under a floor board beneath a stove or in the rafters needing two people and a ladder is good enough for me.

Re: Defensive longarm for a homestead in Alaska

Right now I think it's primarily Saiga .308 vs. FAL vs. .308 AR. Do you guys think I'm on the right track with wanting to focus on learning to use one longarm as a defensive firearm? Would practice and training one type of AK translate well to another? For instance a .308 AK and a 7.62x39 AK and ma...

Re: Defensive longarm for a homestead in Alaska

I consider .308 to be a capable round when it comes to defense against grizzlies. I'd have to disagree. If a Grizzly was shot with a .308 and it had decent shot placement that targeted its vital organs effectively it would most certainly die....eventually. But it might not be quick enough to save y...
