Re: Shooting with both eyes open

Might I intrude and open this question up to fiber optic archery sites? We pretty much just set the respective dot on the respective target. I keep both eyes open and let 'er rip. I only started into archery late last summer and havn't had much time to practice over the winter months. Am I doing the...

Re: "Zombie Survival?"

I sat down and came up with a list of things that could go sideways and then ranked them in order of likelihood.From house fire to Zombie Apocalypse.I then made a list of items/knowledge specific to each threat.I first assembled a basic personal survival kit,I then began preps for the most likely s...

Re: The actual usefulness of long knives......

I'm known to have a variety of blades on me at any given time ... I've always carried a knife on me since about grade 10. When I went on a trip to London England with a school group I got a fair warning from a security guard at Windsor castle who locked my (3.5") knife in a security box while I tour...

Re: B.O.B. for Girls.

I'm a big advocate of multi-tools, and instant hand warmers if you're anywhere that gets cold. The multi-tool was actually the only knife I had she was comfortable with. Once she saves a bit of money we're going to go and pick up a real knife for her - she finds my large knives to have too bulky of...

Either way it sounds pretty epic, how about a video of just the neckline? I think we would all be quite impressed by it.

Re: Home machine shop

That's quite impressive. I don't think I can express how jealous I am. Just wondering what you have for reference books? Machinist's handbook has been mentioned already, but texts like Technology of Machine Tools are quite useful. I think that is on it's 6th edt. but may have a seventh out soon. I h...

Re: Shaving

I also have a hand clipper, which functions like those electric haircut buzzing thingies, except it's done by handpower instead of electricity. I think they used to use them to hand-shear sheep or something. I've seen these things in pet smart - you squeeze the handle to move the shears ... maybe m...

B.O.B. for Girls.

So my girlfriend wants to build her own B.O.B. We don't intend on being separated in a Bug Out situation, but being prepared is the entire reason I'm a member on this site. I already carry a lite (25 lbs) B.O.B./F.A.K. combination. So, I'm looking for a bit of help - mainly from our female contribut...

Where can one find O2 absorbers?
"Pickling" your pills this way seems to make a lot of sense to me. and likely not just meds, but vitamins as well.

I hope everyone realizes that a hobby machine shop is likely the most expensive hobby you could start. I feel sorry for everyday joes who do these things entirely out of their own pocket. :!:

Places where survivers may be holed up and how best to get to them? The best body parts for eating. For instanc...

Re: Home machine shop

If your wallet EVER recovers, you should consider a surface grinder/magnetic base (as the stupid grinders never come with one). Not only does it add accuracy, but also gives a much nicer surface finish. Of course it only really applies to ferrous metals, as with all grinding wheels (unless you want ...

Re: Need some Compound bow help!

I bought my first bow last summer, and it's a Browning Rage, I'm completely satisfied with it as a starter bow, besides paying a little much for it. I would agree with the general trend on this page; go into a hunting/archery shop, get measured up, test your draw weight - there's no point in buying ...

Non-lethal Self Defence

My girlfriend got me thinking about this one shortly after we'd started dating. We had been talking about zombies and what we would each do in the event of an outbreak, she suggested in the event of needing a quick get away, she would throw a blanket or comforter over the purveying attackers head.

My big problems are that (a) you could make a suspension bridge cable out of what grows on my face, and (b) I've got a 5-o-clock shadow by about 9:30. If I shave daily, I get the worst razor burn imaginable on my neck, so since I'm not in the military, I just rock the full beard, and trim everythin...
