Re: 20 Volt Multi-Tool Sets: Opinions and Experiences

I need a weedeater and a pressure washer. I know this is a stretch for this thread. But figured you guys would all be up on what to look for.

What kind of weedeater do I want? Battery operated? Gas? Electrical cord?

PRessure washer is a bit easier. But anyone have any recommendations?

Re: This is what I have, any suggestions?

I wonder what it would cost to print a map on to a bandanna? I LOVE IT! :D https://burntpointlodge.com/products/silk-maps That's a pretty rudimentary map. If you zoom for the detail. You can't see trails and roads until you get into a very small area. I would not rely on that. Your better off print...

As long as the Zippo is always in your pocket and you're refilling it regularly.

Here is my EDC I just finished putting together with my new shoulder sling bag with a molle "med" pouch attached to it. Any suggestions on what else to put in it?

In a 16' square box full. I can't imagine what this was used for. But there's a lot of good scrap in there f...

I love this old list of rules for a gunfight. If you imagine John Wayne reading it aloud. It's pretty entertaining. Some jewels in there for sure though. It's been around the internet for ages. I used to have a framed copy behind my desk.

Re: 20 Volt Multi-Tool Sets: Opinions and Experiences

I needed a new cordless drill for my Jeep mods. And around the house. So I pulled the trigger on the HF Bauer. And I couldn't be happier. It's so light and strong. Of course all I had to compare it to was my old Sears 18v cordless. That I'd had for 20 years. And was heavy and not so strong. This lit...

Free with a bag of dog food.

There are a few things I have that are near and dear to my heart. And then there are other things that I have no emotional attachment too. But that have worked so well for so many years - they've stayed around. And some of those are the ones I admire and hope to keep for the rest of my life. One is ...

Re: Which of these 2 bags would you pick?

My advice is wait a month or two and save your money. Save up for the 5.11 RUSH 12, 24 or 72. Depending on what size your looking for. Those are the bags - the bags you picked out - are based on. The ones you picked out are total shitty copies. You can't go cheap with a backpack. (Unless your willin...

Re: "The Rain" on Netflix

This is a great series. Really held my attention at times. But for a post-apocalyptic tv series (hard to come by) it's pretty good. I really enjoyed it. And am waiting for season two. The Survivalist on netflix is better. More serious more gritty. More my thing. But it's a movie.
