Re: Handgun Condition while concealed

I dunno, gang. I'm on the fence. My last patrol in OEF, we rolled out and I left my M4 in amber. The truck got hit in a close-range complex attack and disabled in the kill zone. When I dismounted, still in amber, it took maybe a millisecond to chamber a round. Not saying that's the way to do it, jus...

Rain started but only at a steady drizzle and if it stays that way we'll be fine.

Wow. The forecasters told us to brace for rain the next couple days but that map looks much more ominous than what I expected. Thanks for posting.

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

I haven't watched yet but last night I could tell the moment something happened because Twitter literally broke. People posting, "Oh, no!" and "I can't believe that happened!" I was like, "Yup, that's gotta be Glenn."

I'll watch the episode tonight. Here's a message from the showrunner. Methinks we haven't seen the last of Glenn.

Re: Greyman vs Greenman

But I know all my "go bag" clothing will be ultra heavy brush busting clothing. I don't know if that is a "good idea" or just "my style." It's probably great for your environment and skill set. And that's the most important aspect of any kit. Likewise, my clothes are more urban, even though I can a...

Re: Greyman vs Greenman

Trekking clothing looks like trekking clothing. Not really feasible for business casual offices. However, gym bags are a common sight. Indeed and a change of clothes is a great addition for something like a GHB. The trick, I've found, is not to shop for trekking clothing. Rather, travel clothing. T...

Re: Greyman vs Greenman

I've slowly been revamping my clothes into a capsule wardrobe system. It's pricey and done in stages, but there's a lot of stuff from ExOfficio, Columbia, etc. that functions in the woods as well as the street. The idea is that, in the event of a catastrophe, I'll almost always be wearing the same c...

Oh, it's totally practical for civilian hikers, especially if you don't have a change of dry clothes. It was an interesting read. Thanks for posting.

Or they could've taken turns pulling security while changing into dry clothes and eating a hot MRE then moved out back on mission in 30 mins instead of spending miserable, vulnerable hours shivering in wet gear.

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

I recall Morgan using firearms to save Daryl and Aaron from the car and, of course, to shoot at Rick in the town. I get the impression the new Morgan tries to save his bullets for the walkers.

I'd put money on the dipshit looking to settle a minor slight.

Re: ZombieCon Shooting

I used to be the night crime reporter at the Fort Myers paper. This was about 11 years ago and even then that city was like the Wild West. What's news about this shooting is that it took place downtown. The police usually kept a tight reign on the area so the tourists and their money wouldn't get sc...
