Re: recommended MRE source? Trays any good?

Hi all! I stocked a couple boxes of MREs a few years back, been slowly eating them on camp trips. Now its time to buy more ..... 1) Anyone got a good recommendation for brand or source for MREs? Where's a good price? 2) Anyone tried any of the MRE trays? They look REALLY cheap (like, $10 for pounds...

Thanks.
The current military compass is very good, but get the Tritium version.

Look for the H3 on the bottom of the compass.

Re: Alternative remedies for bleeding control

Hey guys, I'm late to this party, so I'm sure this topic has been beat to death. If so, I'm very sorry. I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with home remedies for bleeding control? Working in the ER I've seen people swear that blue ink from a standard pen directly in the wound stops bleeding...

Re: Bug-out-bag item: Glucose tablets

Ok, I don't know if anyone else has posted about these, but I recently found out about a nifty survival item: glucose tablets. You can get them at Wal-Mart and likely other places for about $7 for a bottle of 50 tablets of one flavour. I've also seen a mixed box of 24 tabs for a measely $4. They ar...

Re: New Gloves Are On Order

Why? Because my son's school apparently does not provide any gloves whatsoever when they dissect things. Yes, I know the sheep's heart was soaking in formaldehyde. They should still be wearing gloves and safety glasses (preferably goggles), at a minimum. Even if it isn't dangerous. *headdesk* Yes, ...

Pinch the glove. on the back of your hand and remove it. You now have the clean side of the dirty glove. Use that t...

Where is the weakest place in the scull - face forward?

The eye.

Agreed

Unless you have a high powered firearm, a 22 can
easily penetrate the and the thin bone behind it; right
into the brain. In all the zombie films, you never see
them go for the eye.

I need to refill my small D tank.

Does anyone in the Los Angeles know a place
where I can get it filled at a reasonable price?

Airgas wants $75.00 to fill the tank, which is
way too much.

If anyone knows a place, please let me know.

Thanks!

Re: Gloves:

Are you referring to their "Barrier" extrication gloves that provides protection from fluids? If so, those, IMHO, are junk and a waste of money. You lose tactile dexterity compared to their non-barrier gloves and basically feels like you're wearing bunker gloves. At the firehouse, we would simply w...
