Re: Purge Threats

The whole idea behind The Purge is stupid. People who want to commit a crime will not wait for a 12 hour period of time (not even 24 hours, but just a night) to go out and burn something or enact revenge. You know what a purge is? Back in the day, an army would burn a town to the ground and kill a m...

Re: Riots in St Louis?

Fair enough. You know something? Now would be the perfect time to commit a different kind of crime in St. Louis. Securities fraud, maybe. Or moving some contraband while everyone is busy. Something along those lines. Yes, the rioting is a serious situation. But if you plan it right, you could easily...

Re: Riots in St Louis?

Question: why don't the police paint or cover riot equipment in dark blue? It's not like anyone will mistake a riot cop for anyone other than a riot cop.

Re: Well, we got to bug out last week...

Food, water and shelter weren't an issue, as we were bugging out all of about 3 miles, to my parent's house. If your house becomes seriously threatened by an active wildfire, your parents house will also be in the evacuation zone. You need somewhere farther to bug out to. Just a thought. Also, it's...

Re: Defensive longarm for a homestead in Alaska

Having lived in Fairbanks for a year, you will need a gun that can bring down a moose and any wild dogs. If you plan on living anywhere other than directly downtown, you should also get a pistol for carry, because wildlife does come up to people's houses and you won't lug a shotgun or rifle everywhe...

Re: Busted Handle... Suggestions?

Cool. Your knife tang looks full and thick. I recommend you replace it with something you made. Plastic is plastic, no matter how many hardeners went into it. Wrap up the exposed blade and saw off the rest of the plastic, either by hand or with a bandsaw. Pry off the riveted sections. Easy as pie. Y...
