Re: RATE man in blacks EDC

Hmm, I think the bandana should be on your person and the playing cards should be in the bag. If the SAK sees so much use, just carry it instead of the paraframe. PlusOne to whomever mentioned the cheap poncho and reflective blanket. Some type of headwear. Consider some of the following: Small bottl...

Re: Bulletproof Clipboard..

As neat as it sounds, I dont think youre going to be able to physically hang on to one of these when its hit. Its like batting down a 90mph fastball with a clip board, that shit is hard enough with a Louisville. I would be interested in trying the "indestructible" one, only because I've yet to see a...

Re: Deactivated cell phone for emergency?

Cellphones don't register to addresses. The phone either has a passive GPS system that relays to "The System" or "The System" uses a series of signal strength, and host signal indicators to coordinate the position of a call. The fidelity, even with the non-GPS protocol, is amazingly high.

Yeah, its pretty slick idea. I bought a $20 ATT prepaid phone and keep it charged on my nightstand, no SIM just top off the batteries every couple days.

Re: gsg-5 vs. ruger 10/22

I dont like that model because a black Tapco stock and black paint are not "worth" the extra $80-$90 they are charging you for it, over the basic carbine length model. If you find you want the stock later so be it...but even then youll have two stocks instead of just the one (for the same total inve...

Re: gsg-5 vs. ruger 10/22

I would go with the 10/22, just not the model shown. The kind of person who is going to turn tail on you when you produce steel is not likely to be too concerned about the color, shape or caliber. Conversely, the kind of person that does not turn tail, would not have ran regardless of what color, sh...

Where the G2 is really going to shine for you is not in the raw brightness, but in the smoothness in output over time. Which is mostly a function of Lithium Ion batteries over Alkaline batteries.

I think you'd be hard pressed to find a LEO that wouldn't have lead with the pistol. Everything from that point on is just the risk you take from doing that job.

They block light except for that which is a specific wavelength. Since most pistol lights still use krypton/halogen lamps, they produce full spectrum light an d can be filtered.
