My powder coat bullet adventure

Re: King of Random = King of Preppers

Re: Canning - oh boy, I don't think these are good

I appreciate the feedback. The jars I had were stinking up the kitchen, and I was getting more flak that it was worth so we tossed them outside. My wife has a bird feeder out there (that has also been feeding squirrels, raccoons and opossums) and within 2 days they were all eaten up. So they were EA...

Re: Installing new electrical

Landlord finally got a couple electricians to come provide a quote. They'll be here the next two evenings to get an on-site look at what we want to do. Couldn't believe it - the first THREE electricians I found (all highly rated on Yelp) totally flaked. Well, one declined the work saying it was a lo...

Canning - oh boy, I don't think these are good

Hmmm. Not real happy with my canning at the moment. I had my son cook up some rice 2 days ago from one of our mylar bags. Rice was great, although my son's cooking skill still needs some help from the Mrs. I thought about adding in some carrots, celery and green pepper for flavoring, and thought it ...

Re: How Have You Prepared Today? (Bug-in Location Edition)

Ordered a 12v battery from Ebay for my UPS using the proceeds from empty CCI 22LR plastic ammo boxes I sold there. Not this week but earlier in January I picked up 100 four-gallon square buckets & lids for free from a local food company. They had hundreds and hundreds of them posted on CraigsList. T...

Re: Cool score for aquaponics

So, after fiddling with the tank for a bit I decided to sell it. I had spent time cleaning the tank (which was actually ~37 gallons or so) and got everything checked out. But, it wasn't going to work for what I needed so I sold it on CraigsList. Things I learned: Most common filter pumps are set up ...

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

@brothaman What kind of Anderson lowers? When I built my 5.56 AR, that was the foundation I used too. This week I sold a shotgun slug casting mold since I never bought the shotshell reloader I wanted. I used the proceeds to pick up a 223 bullet mold instead. I'll try that out this weekend. Gotta get...

Re: Test your house zompocalypse simulation.

You could simulate it with a number of games. 7 Days to Die I think is the zombie apocalypse builder game. If you can mod that you could recreate house layout and test.

Re: What if the government were evacuating

Bugging in I have lots of supplies. Making me go mobile adds stress and removes resources simultaneously. For zombies, I would fortify in place. If these zombies are fast ones, then we bug out.

Cool score for aquaponics

I just got a bunch of aquarium stuff from CraigsList for free. I've been keeping an eye out for good opportunities, and two popped up this weekend. I snagged one of them. Here's the tank. I believe it's 50 gallons, and they gave me the 5-gallon bucket of gravel too. https://farm6.staticflickr.com/57...

Re: Recommendations for security light / camera combo

I picked up a SunForce 80 LED motion sensing solar powered light. It's installed on the side of the house, and set up. I still need to adjust it a bit, but it does an excellent job of lighting up the whole side yard. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FDQPCR2?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailp...

Re: Suggestions for compact gun cleaning kit

I also found the Winchester compact pistol cleaning kit. I was hoping to find something THAT small for rifle, but i...

Re: Suggestions for compact gun cleaning kit

The Otis kits seem put together pretty well, but they sure have a spotty reputation for being the right size / compatible with a variety of calibers. Was that an early customer response that they fixed, or is it ongoing? I wouldn't expect to have to buy more accessories when I buy the "all rifle cal...

So, requirements are: 2x to 4x magnification (nothing more specific here) Ability to mount to 10/22 or picatinny Inex...
