I love this old list of rules for a gunfight. If you imagine John Wayne reading it aloud. It's pretty entertaining. Some jewels in there for sure though. It's been around the internet for ages. I used to have a framed copy behind my desk.

Re: 20 Volt Multi-Tool Sets: Opinions and Experiences

I needed a new cordless drill for my Jeep mods. And around the house. So I pulled the trigger on the HF Bauer. And I couldn't be happier. It's so light and strong. Of course all I had to compare it to was my old Sears 18v cordless. That I'd had for 20 years. And was heavy and not so strong. This lit...

Free with a bag of dog food.

There are a few things I have that are near and dear to my heart. And then there are other things that I have no emotional attachment too. But that have worked so well for so many years - they've stayed around. And some of those are the ones I admire and hope to keep for the rest of my life. One is ...

Re: Unexploded ordanance

When I was in the Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton. We were at our harbor site for the evening. And this very stupid private came walking over this little hill into camp with a mortar held over his shoulder. Shouting "Look what I found guys!". His eyes lit up like he'd found a $100 bill.

Re: Which of these 2 bags would you pick?

My advice is wait a month or two and save your money. Save up for the 5.11 RUSH 12, 24 or 72. Depending on what size your looking for. Those are the bags - the bags you picked out - are based on. The ones you picked out are total shitty copies. You can't go cheap with a backpack. (Unless your willin...

Re: "The Rain" on Netflix

This is a great series. Really held my attention at times. But for a post-apocalyptic tv series (hard to come by) it's pretty good. I really enjoyed it. And am waiting for season two. The Survivalist on netflix is better. More serious more gritty. More my thing. But it's a movie.

Re: Exterior Door Security

But it wasn't expensive. And it was very effective. They also upgraded the deadbolt mechanism. I'd google secur...

Re: Noob 1st bag question: big new or supplement?

You might consider a cheap GHB (Get Home Bag). And altering your backpacking gear to a BOB. But remember. Plan first. MAke a gear list. Then buy your bag. Then buy your gear last. I'm not sure how much you can afford in a "stealable" GHB. But you may be able to put something cheaper together just to...

I didn't realize there were new models coming out. And that must have been why they were on sale. Checked gun-deals and gunbroker. Any ...

The Swiss Army water filter on the sight with the water bags is very interesting. I would be curious as to replacement filter element availability.
Give them a call. It's my local brick and mortar surplus store. It's owned by Voodoo Tactical and is right next to there manufacturing plant.

How to stock up on prescription medication.

If you want to stock up on your prescription medication. Start going to a Kroger pharmacy. I started using Ralphs pharmacy. Which is a Kroger grocery store pharmacy. They go by other names too. Kroger is the major grocery chain on the west coast. And I think nationally. I'm not sure. But here is a l...

not much point in selling them given the low cost and effort to build them, and there is an issue with consistently sourcing parts as thrift stores are the main way to keep costs down.
