Re: can you cerkote, hydrodip, powdercoat, etc a bolt carrie

Wondering if it is at all possible to cerakote (or any of the above mentioned coatings) JUST THE BOLT CARRIER ? Since, correct me if I'm wrong, it really only has four "rails" that are in constant contact with the upper. If cerakote is a total of .001" would it be any different than any other coati...

Re: Yet another Cherokee question

1995-99 are probably the best years. The first design of the 0331 heads are more prone to cracking, but that doesn't mean they're all guaranteed to crack. The most cost-effective upgrades to a stock cherokee are Truetrac LSDs (or selectable lockers if you want to spend a little more), good all-terra...

Re: Rosetta Stone for learning a second language

As an alternative to Rosetta Stone, you could use both Duolingo and Pimsleur. Duolingo is free. Pimsleur I would say is not too expensive if you buy lessons as you need them. Both take a slightly different approach. Duolingo focuses on text and audio translation. Pimsleur focuses on verbal graduated...

Unconventional approach suggestion 1: Freeze them all with some dry ice slurry or other super-cold liquid.

Re: Krav Maga for the Zombie Apocalypse!

Any style that focuses on multiple attackers will excel. Most styles cover it to some degree, very few actually focus on it In a real fight where you have to take on multiple attackers, you either need to be a significantly better fighter than each and every one of them (however many there are), or...

Re: Krav Maga for the Zombie Apocalypse!

I think if one wanted to prepare for a zombie pockyclipse, they should take up a sword discipline, but finding a good instructor can be very difficult form what I understand.

Re: Steel Armored Disc Vs AR15!

How thick was the steel, and what sort of steel was it?
M193 often does a better job of penetrating steel, and also tends to do more damage to soft targets inside of 100 yards.

Re: Krav Maga for the Zombie Apocalypse!

In my estimation it's very difficult to have a debate with you in particular because you have a very narrow view of the topic at hand. You know things, and lots of things!

Re: Krav Maga for the Zombie Apocalypse!

I think it's a mistake to assume that training one thing is as good as training another, so long as enough effort is put into it. There are all sorts of MAs that you could train several hours a day for years, and the guy going to the dojo 2x a week for a more effective MA is going to own you in a fi...

it was like CrossFit of the martial arts world. There is a huge amount of overlap in these crowds. Many Krav places are also Crossfit gyms.

Re: Krav Maga for the Zombie Apocalypse!

Krav will teach you to be aggressive, to be intense, and a few basic techniques. Ferocity and perseverance are crucial in a defensive situation, but those things alone will only take you so far. It seems many Krav classes focus too much time on unlikely scenarios and cardio, and not enough on good t...

Stockpiling 3 different calibers for a SHTF situation is, I think, being rather generous. Stockpile based on your needs. What are your needs? You can save money by stockpiling one caliber and still be reasonably prepared for hunting and defense. .22 LR is cheap. It is commonplace. It can be used in ...
