Re: All Things Salt

The chemical compound potassium iodide (KI) is itself pretty stable provided it's kept dry, which is what you'll want to do with salt anyway. The 5-year number for iodized salt takes into account that the storage conditions probably aren't going to be ideal. However, if you also store KI tablets in ...

Re: Bug Out Gear Deals (Post 'em when you find 'em) I

In what I would call the Deal of the Week Academy Sports is selling the Taurus G2S for $279. With the purchase you get a FREE Rossi RS22 rimfire rifle. Additionally there is a MIR for $30 through July 7th through Taurus on that model. So for $249 + tax you get a decent concealed carry piece plus an...

Re: Seattle is Dying

That is absolutely true. But I’ll guarantee you go talk to the homeless there, over half have been shipped up from out of state and another 10% shipped from within the state. I lived in the ID/Chinatown district not far from a few homeless shelters and assistance places. I saw busses with Nevada, O...

Re: Southern California Earthquake Swarm Takes Unexpected Turn

We’ve been having the same thing happen up here in WA. Lots of mini quakes. Unfortunately we still know only about 2% of earthquakes. NT2C you’re analogy isn’t partially good. The big flakes still cause your scraper to get hung up and needs more force to break free. Those little ones don’t release ...

Re: Southern California Earthquake Swarm Takes Unexpected Turn

The scraper moves along with small, hardly perceptible impacts as you get the loose chips, then for a second, you get hung up on a bigger one that isn't so easy to break o...

I'm diggin' the extended mag release on the CROM chassis (hopefully their 2.0 chassis will have an ambi or reversible release)....that's my biggest complaint with the stock Ruger PC.
