Re: Walling in a farm when the dead rise up.

You could also get sections of hog wire, some plastic or canvas sheeting and there ya go. You'll just have to make sure that the two faces are strongly secured to each other to prevent them from blowing out by the weight of the dirt in between them. Some heavy guage wire tied in between the hog wire...

Re: Walling in a farm when the dead rise up.

I'll +1 on the idea of a chain fence, or double fence. You'll just have to keep an eye on it to make sure no one shows up with a pair of wire cutters. Several ranches around here have their property "walled" off with a 10-12ft high wildlife fence which is basically the same thing as a security fence...

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms rela

Well, I finally joined the AR bandwagon and picked up a 5.56 LWRC M6A2. I plan to register the lower as an SBR and figure by the time the paperwork comes back I'll have another $2,000 saved up for a 10.5" upper in 6.8. If I'm thinking this right, I'll basically get the benifit of 2 rifles in one pac...

working gear. (get in shape)

I put on my MAV2 with 6 AK mags and tried to go from one building on our land to another(@300yds) It whiped me out. Granted I have alergies and at 40 ...

Re: how do you store your firearms

Glock nightstand gun has a loaded mag, but no round chambered. Same for the 870 in the closet. It may not be .02 seconds as fast as having a chambered round, but then again, I can pick either up and not fear putting a hole through the ceiling or a loved one. (And yes, I always act as if both are cha...

Re: Fly vs Spinning vs Baitcaster - What to carry

Current weather patterns around here have made fishing something of a by-gone hobby. Today it would be far more effective to grab a 2x4 than a fishing rod. All you have to do is wait till your local stream/river/pond, or other water body dries up, then walk on in and beat the fish to death. For thos...

Re: reminton 700 or SOCOM II

If you decide to go with the Remington, you may want to consider getting the 700 AAC model. It has all the features the SPS does, but also comes with a 5/8-24 threaded barrel. You may never put a suppressor or compensator/flash hider on it, but with the barrel pre-threaded, you always have that opti...

I've got a 6-24x44 Nighteater on one of my 308's and personally think it's a fine scope. At full magnification the image can get a little cloudy(not too bad though), but that isn't real unusual unless you want to spend $5,000 on a state-of-the-art masterpiece. For the $190 I spent on it I am very pl...

Re: Low light shooting options for my AK74

I have a BP-02 low profile center mount with a C-More railway reflex on my slr-107 and love it. One of my other AK's has a PSOP 4x and is also a good sight. My other 2 AK's are iron sights, but given my shitty eyes, those are more for safe guns rather than grab-n-go guns.
