Re: Show us your Bugout Dogs!

Some fine looking dogs here but all I have is bug-in cats. Maybe we need a thread for them too? :? I have one of those too. My last cat was an American Bobtail. He looked like a Bobcat. Really great animal. I loved him dearly. Any interest in making it possible to upload photos directly to the forum?

Re: Storage box.

There is a simple system some guys have come up with where you put one of those tail hitch carriers in the back of the Jeep. At about mid height. Then storage boxes under it.

She's a Black Lab/Great Dane cross (or so they say), who's the most intelligent animal I've ever owned. She is trained to heel, beg, shake,...

A seven year old GSD, male, 90# and untrained... he snaps and barks - but doesn't know how to get a deep bite like a trained protection dog would; and a mixed GSD/?? female, 65# also untrained in protection. Both have basic obedience training, and their temperaments compliment each other in that he...

Re: Storage box.

That's edging into (NIB) jobsite box range. Whether the likely extra weight of a job box would outweigh the security I suppose depends on circumstances. I'd just like to point out that this is about 1/3 the size of a job box. Depends on the job box. Smaller ones are about this size . Weight is an i...

This would probably fit in the back of my jeep well. But there are probably cheaper options. Thought i would share this anyway.

Re: Most common ammo's in US?

The thing i didnt learn. Was urban warfare. Either then or in the military. Back then everything was long distance and fireteams assaulting in the open. Back then it was EU forest war. Not desert urban war. Id like to take some classes eventually. This has changed a lot in the last 5 years, let alo...

Re: New Columbia waterproof boots...

I don't see anything that is really new there; they don't say how they go about waterproofing them though so likely just a traditional membrane. TPU overlays are very common in shoe uppers as is insulation. The reflective lining more common in foam lined arctic work boots (think oil field workers i...

I have a Colt airsoft 1911, purchased for basically just this reason (cheaper practice). At household ranges, the biggest issue I've had is that it went through two cardboard boxes (4 layers of corrugated coardboard) and chipped my back door. Strictly speaking the operations are also slightly diffe...

Yeah, the like I posted are a mid weight, not a thick/heavy weight. Wigman still has the light thin weight last I looked. For cold weather I'd want longer than 1/4 length anyway. Your right. Id want heavy weight longer socks too. Some of these 1/4s say mid weight. But are very different. The merrel...
