My thought is that people are stocking up for the possibility of election violence. I have not heard of transport disruptions (other than the hurricanes in my AO) in a couple of months.

Re: Old memeber, back after a long time...

So where CAN I get the OFFICIAL ZS stickers? I'm having a little trouble navigating the site. Unfortunately, unless you find a member with a stash and willing to share you can't. The ZS store is closed until further notice and may or may not reopen. It's up to the ZS BoD and our current sysadmin (w...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

[Edited for commentary] The whole Kyle Rittenhouse issue is a great example of what can happen if you execute your right to self defense. Because Kyle put himself in a position where he felt his life was in danger and reacted with deadly force, he was arrested, charged and that moment will flavor h...

A lot of the items I've had on Amazon's "Subscribe & Save" are coming up as unavailable. Everything from women's vitamins to my preferred ice tea mix. No real rhyme or reason for it that I can see.

Re: Just a reminder not to forget

Acquired a couple more big rocks/small boulders to line the sides of the driveway.

Just a reminder not to forget

This is just a reminder not to forget that, amid all the current turmoil taking place around the country, civil unrest isn't the only threat we need to prep for and be aware of.

[Edit: looks like NIJ does not certify Lvl III for any 5.56 threat, but suggests it is fine for .223 hunting ammo, and recommends Lvl IV for 5.56] I've seen video (scouring my YouTube history for it at the moment) of both XM855 and XM193 going through Level III+ plates. http://www.youtube.com/watch...

And just as a fun fact, an old friend of mine from when I lived in NYC, his father was one of the engineers who developed DTMF back in the day. I thought that was a pretty cool thing when I found out.

The stun, kill, and revive functions, at least, falls under telecommand, and the auxiliary and remote station rules, and is allowed under the regs.
