Re: If you could buy any 5 Bug Out Knives for under $100....

Rat Izula for food Rat RC3 for small work Rat (are you seeing a trend yet :mrgreen: ) RC5 If its $100 for all 5 knives... join the real world. Nothing in that realm is srong enough for that kind of abuse. I went with: Rat Izula Rat RC4

Re: Streamlight Sidewinder vs Surefire G2LED

Good old flashlight nerd debate brewing here, me likes! Here's what happened for me: From birth until around summer 2006 I was all about the mag-lights, both cop-size and mini. I have one cop-size in my car that still works and the batteries expired in 2006, oddly enough. In the summer of 2006 I pic...

Re: Winter Jackets (TAD, Northface, Columbia, 5.11)

Cold winter where? You mention that you lived in the south for the last couple of years but you didn't mention your current location. If you are still in the south, I recommend a good waterproof barrier & thermals. If you are north, you will need something more snow-proof. I have a TAD stealth hoodi...

Re: Do I even need to make a BOB?

Why do you need a BOB? You don't camp? Go hiking? A BOB is a good excuse to GTFO of the house. Field testing? Sure, get out get some exercise, fresh air, enjoy the natural world. If you have what you need to go backpack camping for a weekend, you pretty much have a BOB. I really don't understand peo...

Re: 870 tactical

I think part of the problem is that people assume with a shotgun you can just point in a general direction and shoot to hit the target. Plus if someone invades your home and they don't have a weapon, a shotgun makes a big scary boom sound that will surely drive them off. More on topic, I don't know ...

Does that include the weapon and full ammo load also? +1 on the recommendation for a sleeping pad of some sort. And maybe I missed it, but I didn't see anything to sleep i...

I like how everything is black and your clothes are packaged like you're transporting cocaine. I see a mini-mag flashlight listed, I recommend ditching it for a better LED flashlight. Maybe double up here, or pick up a headlamp so you can have light without using your hands. I don't see anything lis...

Re: I need a FAK organizer.

If you still need a pouch, I picked up a Maxpedition FR-1 for my IFAK and I like it a lot. I got it from LA Police Gear for about $33 and it's pretty good quality. Has a neat carry handle on the top too for quick grabs, and some shock cord on the front. It's the same dimensions as the Emdom B.O.M.B ...

Re: Jaws' knife & tool thread

that's weird that it would straight up break like that, dang thing is made of stainless steel so i would at least expect it to be as sturdy as a key. that said, i've dropped mine bunches of times and it never broke, so could be a flawed piece or possibly just a freak occurance.
