Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

So it's a long, long way down the gunnage list, but the new Ruger 8 shot 357 is incredibly sexy. I do wish it came in 4 and 6 inch barrels though, 357 out of a 2.75 sounds loud and inefficient. Not to mention it probably hurts like hell. Actually, from what I've read (only seen one independent revi...

Re: melee weapons of choice

I'm throwing in a vote for the Police Truncheon . Cold Steel is making a version of it & I kinda dig it. interestingly primative versions of the truncheon are flat like a paddle. Which would probably do a bit more damage. https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTcNaVOC7EMxRhGSpPTQIGoN...

Re: Well I have to replace the Kahr

.22s are not defensive rounds. And why not? What makes the .22 wholly inadequate, yet a .380 or 9mm or .40 adequate? Simply put, ALL the CCW handgun rounds are inadequate. Or as I prefer to sum it all up, "brain hits matter!" :idea: (And if you you would like to continue discussion of this topic, I...

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

Dedicated mag/ammo cans is definitely something I'll do after I free up space. Magpul/freefloat furniture is something I already have in place, and I'll pick up some Lancers for 300, as my 5.56 are steel and Magpul and I plan to stick with that. Thanks for your input guys.

So since I've diversified things a bit around my house, I've run into what seems to be a common enough problem that there are varying degrees of gimmicky solutions. For those of you with mixed-AR gunsafes, how do you clearly define your AR's apart from each other? At the moment mine are more or less...

Re: melee weapons of choice

Speaking of primitive weapons, I recently saw a National Geographic type tv program where everybody was carrying around 7 ft staves with what looked like tomahawk heads mounted near the top. It was in sub-Saharan Africa. Any idea what those were? Sounds a lot like a poleaxe to me. Do you know the n...

Re: Do-It Yourself Ration Packs By Mantis - the Sequel

PBFit offers single serving PB powder packs, and for single serving ready to use packs I really like Wild Friends. They have a fairly large variety of nut butters, with or without flavors, in single serve pouches.

Re: Do-It Yourself Ration Packs By Mantis - the Sequel

I am not aware of any vegan MRE's. Vegan, no, but vegetarian rations have been pretty standard in US MREs for some time, my understanding is that in a normal case of 12 there will be 1 or so vegetarian meal. They're also readily available online, and there is some variety (~6 different vegetarian e...

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

VEPR are solid, word is they tend to be right at or just below 1moa out of the box with match ammo. Can't speak to mag compatibility, but are M14/M1A rock and lock?

Curious as to how well you could throw a sock with a rock in it. Because that is a weapon you could pretty much do at any time any where. Related to sock with rock or soap in it - as a real life non-ZPAW expedient weapons, I always used to carry a bike lock. Being a cheap bastard, my bikelock was a...

Re: Do-It Yourself Ration Packs By Mantis - the Sequel

Nice job. I glanced at the items and it reminded me of a Russian ration. Ever seen one? They have 3 meals and snacks in one kit. Those things are huge! I was getting a bit more of an Israeli vibe than Russian - but there are no olives or tuna, so I suppose that's just size and prevalence of canned ...

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

If the project is a 22/45 version of the new Ruger Mark IV, they already started making those. I guess someone at Ruger either is a ZS'er or they read the boards and saw me wishing for one. And if you want a cheap single shot shotgun, go for the Hatfield one they sell at Walmart now. The reviews ar...

Re: Where to start w/pressure cooker and dehydrator

Alright, tested the pressure cooker (only got it up to 5psi before I shut it down) and while it can hold pressure at low levels, it hemorrhages steam from the seal so I think it needs a new one. Gonna figure out how to test the pressure gauge for accuracy next. Also, starting small, made some banana...

Yep, it would be AOW on account of being disguised.

I'd like to be able to carry the thing loaded, but with an...
