Re: Active Shooter Defense

My workplace is pretty nice in that everyone on the ground floor has a secure fire door in of our departments leading outside. The office people upstairs are screwed though. They only have the front and back stairs. A third door leads to the roof but that is connected to the back stairs. And they ha...

Re: caliber to complement .223?

Rapid follow upshots in hunting are because you missed the first one. Don't miss the first shot and you don't have to worry about the recoil. As for felt recoil, I actually get bruised by my sons 20g Ithica featherweight shotgun after 20 rounds. Granted they were all 1oz sabot slugs out of a rifled ...

Re: caliber to complement .223?

What's the weight of the PTR, MacAttack? Its a beast. Fully loaded its over 10lbs. Pretty close to my brothers M14. But it has almost nothing in recoil. Close to the AR in .223/5.56N in fact. The idea of turning cover into concealment is a tactical maneuver, not a hunting maneuver. If your trying t...

She could just have a standard infection and just closed and barred the door on the walkers coming down the hall after giving them her war face.

Well I guess thats why L-3 lowered their orders from us.

Though if they lose the military market I bet the will try to keep running with a civilian line at a much much lower price.

Re: Long Term Vehicle Storage -A lesson in Vehicle Unprepard

I keep telling people that plane old gas will keep for quite a while. Well over two years and more often quite longer.


Imagine how long it would last if you had actually tried to store it for long term emergency use.

Keeping a battery viable that long should be the hardest part.
