Re: most useful caliber for lever action in my area

Do you rock a .44mag revolver when you go camping? My mate has a wickedly fun .44mag lever which he pairs for a .44mag revolver and does cowboy action shooting comps. I'm of the opinion that a pair of firearms with different uses but same ammo is rather useful.

Re: .223 pump vs .357 lever

7615 seems to have it, and I think that's the way I'm going to go. Have a mate who's interested in buying my 7600... so at least that'll "stay in the family" so to speak.

.223 pump vs .357 lever

Okay so I went shooting today with some friends, confirmed sights on a couple rifles then had a bit of fun shooting a few guns my mates own. Long story short I fell in love, twice. I've been looking for a lightweight gun that's both fun to shoot, has open sights, is relatively small and light to car...

Re: 1k to purchase something you don't strictly "need"

Invite the houses either side of you, and the three opposite places over for a small bbq. This will be much for effective at building useful relationships,won't cost very much and less likely to get out of hand. To stretch it further, you can provide the meat and some drinks and ask everyone to brin...

Re: Murph's Personal Survival Kit (PSK)

Just gotta say I love this little kit, I'm going to get one the SOL bivvy's after seeing it in your kit. Had a look at them and looks like a neat little product. One thing I'd modify is your newly added trauma gear, it's great but for a kit this size I would swap in a 4inch IZZY and leave the rest t...

Re: SHTF Convoy Driving

Comms is the major issue in non-military convoys. I highly recomment Baofeng radios, they're good quality and can be had for around $40 each. I bought 5, my only problem is the earpieces they came with aren't very comfortable in my ear but they function fine on speaker. They also have a handy AM/FM ...

Re: The Pre-pack ready-to-go BOB - your thoughts?

Swap the hawk for a folding saw, will suit more regions and is better energy-to-output for wood processing. Will be cheaper also.
Ditch the long neck gas lighter, put in a cigarette lighter. Prefer Bic.
Add a shemagh or bandana.

Re: offcamber's INCH

I love all the multicam... very sexy.
I'm going the civvie earth-tones + multicam set as well. Currently my Go Bag (which is both my BOB and INCH) is a multicam bag, though I'm considering swapping that out for a tan or dull green if I can find one I like.

Re: Multi-tools - Do you have one? - what's the best?

I've got: Leatherman Wave; Surge; Skeletool; Fuse (knifeless variant); S2 Juice. They all have different uses, however... The Skeletool, Surge and Juice get the most use. The Skeletool is what I throw in my pocket if I'm working around the regiment depot, or any training stuff not in the field. The ...

Re: what can i use a pps-43 parts kit for?

No personal experience, however passing on what I've heard... unless you know exactly what you're meant to do, it's going to be a long drawn out process to make it functional. Then when you've got it assembled, you've probably made some mistake at some stage and so be prepared for it to malfunction ...

Short term interstate move -WWYD

Hey guys, Long story short. I'm moving from one end of the country to the complete other because of the army. I can't take my guns with me, I have limited luggage allowance so taking even a moderate portion of preps is unfeasible. What I'm looking for is what would you do to prep when you get there,...
