Re: .22lr vs .17hmr for bug out rifle

Another vote for the .22 - Some people really like the 17hmr, but people have been killing rabbits with .22lr since they started making .22lr. I had heard something about exploding small game with 17hmr, but that can be mitigated with shot placement I am sure. Another thing about the .22lr is there ...

Re: Silver as investment... sell now?

Silver has been trending down for a while now. Ideally, you should have sold back when it jumped over $40. Unless you have good information indicating that the bottom will drop out, I'd hold out till it peaks again. While prices are down is actually a good time to buy, in the hope that it will move...

Re: Why use tarp when tent is not that much heavier?

Welcome to ZS It is a personal preference for many, and I can see both sides of the argument. For some people, every ounce they shave off of their backs is like another mile or so they can walk in a day. Some people prefer the versatility of a tarp. A tarp you can fashion into a makeshift poncho dur...

Run 50 rounds through a clean barrel, and then look at the deposits in the barrel. Then clean the barrel and fire 50 rounds of the thunderbolts through. See th...

Re: Car for someoen with visual impairment?

Big vehicles may give you more cushion in the event of an accident, but it also gives you less room on the road to make an error. I would recommend a small pickup. It wouldn't be hard to put "trucker" mirrors on the doors and they wouldn't look as goofball as if they were on a civic. The blind spots...

Re: 2006 Ford Mustang 4.0 V6 Automatic

At least it doesn't have the 2.3L 4 cylinder motor. Yes, Ford actually put one in a Mustang. '79-'93 (with a couple years off in there). By '93 they had it up to, hang onto your hats, 105 hp.

Drill holes in the four corners of the bottom of the box to fit said bolts, about 2" away from the edge. Put the bolts through these holes from the bottom,...

Re: False bottom in foot locker

I would say you don't want the false bottom to be much more than 10% of the total height, but that doesn't give much room for guns.. 3" I think would be really pushing it. You need to make sure that the false bottom wouldn't fall out if they turned it upside down and also that nothing in the false b...

I am confused, how do you plan on keeping the solar evaporation at bay once you dump the water out in the 100 degree desert?
