Re: Phase 7

Watched the trailer and it somewhat reminded me of REC.

Re: One Second After

I enjoyed the imaginative scenario of this book. At times it was pretty gripping. I did not like being preached to by the author. He managed to contrive a lesson in his politics/philosophy when he could and I found it pretty lame. Tom Clancy does the same thing and it ruins what could be a good stor...

Re: 'Life threatening' cyclone heading for Queensland

Firstly, thanks for the updates.

How can they demand a mandatory evacuation when the roads are jammed and there is no way out? Never figured that one out....

I hope you are all dug in deep.

Re: Cuba. Do's. Don'ts. Carry?

Ive been to Cuba a couple of times. Leave all that stuff at home. Carrying a machete around is likely to get you stopped by the police... as it would in Toronto. This is not El Salvador. Cuba is a very safe and friendly place. The standard of living is low thanks to years of embargoes but they do bo...

Re: Price check... Norinco sks plus ammo

In Canada you can buy a Norc SKS for $180. The market has been flooded with them for years. A Russian goes for $225 and a mint Yugo M59 about $350-$400

Re: Quitting smoking

Im on a combination of patches and gum. It works like a charm until I get a few pints in me down at the pub. Bad judgment Nick comes out and blam, its smoking time. It really does call for a lifestyle change. Its been three months and I just figure I'll just keep on with the quitting. The 90 packs I...

Re: La Horde, very well made movie.

I really enjoyed it. Good characters who are not really into working together. Just about everyone has an axe to grind.

Would add it to my DVD collection.

Re: Educate me - The RobArm XCR

They are popular up here in Canada. Though we get limited shipments they all seem to sell out fast. The XCR will be my next rifle purchase and with the quick interchangeable barrels will definitely become my bug out long arm of choice.

Re: Flash flood in AR along river campground dozen +dead...

This really made me think about a bug out location. just because one can flee from one disaster does not mean there isn't another one that could strike. Reminded me of earthquakes followed by mud slides.

Re: Sandbag Bunker

This is a great thread. Especially if you are on a budget with some bug out land to ge to.

My question is how do I keep the water out? There would be not much of a door and I dont really feel like spending time and effort to end up recreating a first world war scenario.

Re: stack on safes - are they ok

Any one determined and not afraid to make noise can get into a common safe in about 15 minutes. I would stay away from any electrically based locks. Keys and combos are just fine.

Spend your money based on size and good construction.
