Re: Most Unique Items in your BOB... Pick TWO

What unique item do you have in your BOB that you'd like to share and why? Pick TWO. Mine: (1) Siphon Pump - For water and gas. (2) Multi-Tool - Million and one uses. I don't get how that is so unique... I thought it was already in 90% of all the BOBs out there :shock: There is nothing in my bag th...

Re: Chickens and Chihuahuas

Interesting question...

We have big dogs, but even they are scared of the cat next door :lol: I think it all depends on whether your dogs are the all bark and no bite type or not. If they are not willing to stand up for themselves I think the chickens would have the run of the roost.

Re: I need help choosing a shotgun.

If you are on a budget and trying to get in cheap, you can get a brand new Mossberg "Maverick" 88 for under $200 new. A step up would be the Mossberg 500 or the base model Remington 870. Any of these are good all around sub $300 shotties, a basic Home Defense "HD" version (18.5"-20" barrel) isn't to...

Re: Bridges out...best way to get my sweet hiney home?

I am a novice kayaker, mostly kayaking in small rivers. I would be afraid of the currents in the river. Even kayaking, they can wear you down quick. You need to make sure you have a kayak and paddle designed for that type of water. (Skeg or rudder, and a very aggressive scoop in the paddle) Another ...

I would start by getting the 12ga for you. I would probably recommend an 870 series or 500 series since there are many many options for barrels lengths, barrel style, stocks, and other gear for the guns. See how she likes it. If there is a little too much recoil for her, I would first try a differen...

Re: Will you be bringing a rifle?

I have a single shot .22/.410 combo that will come with me if I have to bug out for any reason... but being it is a single shot, and broken down while in the bag it is more of a small game getter than a defensive weapon. If the TEOTWAWKI is here, I will probably be carrying my 590 out in the open tho.

Re: Rounded Bolt Heads

I have successfully used a "Gator Socket" to remove a rounded alternator bolt, so I would think they should work on drain plugs as well. Well worth the $10 I paid for it. You can buy it at your local Wally World or some other department stores. For pics - http://www.walmart.com/ip/Gator-Grip-3pc-Uni...

I wouldn't have gone to the door. My instinct as I read your post was to wait as if no one was home and see if they tried to break in.

If I felt the need to carry a saw at all, it would be a chainsaw. A sawzall could take forever cutting up a tree blocking the road.

If you are worried about needing to cut metal, I would get a portable oxy/acetylene welding rig with a cutting torch.
