I haven't heard great things about Karri's Guns either. I'd stick with PSA.

Re: Review: Maxpedition Pygmy Falcon II

I've been using one as an EDC/GHB setup for close to a year and a half now with no complaints. I was previously using a Sitka but tired of the single shoulder strap. I keep 8-10lbs worth of stuff in it usually and it's very comfortable. As simplistic as it is, it's overpriced but very, very durable....

Re: Hammock Sleeping

I'm going on a backpacking trip this weekend and I'm planning on getting a hammock. The only trouble is I don't know which one to get. I'm trying to decide between the dutchware 11ft single hammock http://www.dutchwaregear.com/11-ft.-netless-hammocks.html and the eno doublenest https://www.eaglesne...

Re: Zombies Won't Hear You Coming In A Prius

- Speed - electric motors mean instant torque and full power. The 0-60 time isn't too impressive, but it's fast enough for daily use and you can punch it for a quick start that's pretty quick. I haven't tried it, but I've seen documentation (people arrested clocked at this speed) that the car can a...

Re: SOG Flash 1 & Flash 2 - REVIEW

I've had a SOG Flash II for a couple of years now. I love the knife, it carries well and has held up well. My only complaint is that the pocket clip becomes loose rather easy. Minor grip overall and wouldn't stop me from buying another.

Look up Backcountry Navigator for Android. Its $10. It allows you to specify specify the area that you want to download maps for as well as the map resolution. I've imported 300+ four wheeling trails and a couple hundred miles or hiking trails into mine. It works pretty well but I won't go out witho...

I won't touch a receiver from R-Guns. I looked at a dozen of them at a local gun store and all of them had a canted mag release hole. It's not worth the risk.

Re: "Walking Dead" New Cable Series

I think the show is terrible as far as preparing goes. It does present a group of people that haven't completely come to grips with their reality. Your in a vast landscape filled with hopeless, deranged "zombies", and your looking for a girl in the midst of it all? My girl? Yup. "All y'all can do w...

I have not read the comic, but I am going to guess that what he told rick was that everyone is infected because the virus is airborne and that we all turn into zombies when we die (unless we die of head trauma).

They definitely have a terrible reputation locally in Colorado. I also don't have much respect for a man that allows his 16 yr daughter to dress so provocatively on national TV.

As long as you buy canned stuff from the more well known makers and don't let it get too hot or dented, it can stay good for decades.....
