Would you mind posting pics of the Big Dot sights?

I plan on changing out my stock sights at some point and don't think I've seen pics of these on someone's gun.

Re: Norway's new 'Doomsday Vault'

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/6335899.stm The Norwegian government is building a vault to hold seeds for all known food crops. The vault will be near the north pole. What else do you think they should include? Information? Emergency rations so survivors don't eat the seeds? Belt fed mac...

Thanks for the heads up. If it weren't for other circumstances, I'd just get the CCW permit here and then move. Hope you have better luck with police in the future (by which I mean no encounters with them at all whatsoever). May get a Colorado permit actually. Just for the extra states? What's the ...

This is why I'm hesitant to even get a CCW, I'm getting to the point where I'm so fed up and paranoid I'll get busted for doing just about anything that I dont want to risk it. Right now, I'd rather kill the "Permit to purchase" a handgun thing than anything else. I read about that at packing.org -...

Since the issue of open carry came up...

How is it looked upon in St. Louis or Chesterfield? I see that Missouri is considered an anomalous state, so one is subjected to each city's own regulations and rules.

Just curious as to whether anyone open carries in either of those areas.

Personally, not yet. However, I've yet to try it out in a more population-dense area like a Wal-Mart or other store. Perhaps someone else can share their experience.

The easiest substitute is to simply use a chair, propped against the door with the top of the back of the chair under the doorknob (tilt chair forward so that the seat of the chair is facing the door). I do this for my apartment every night after testing it with my wife to see if there was any way I...

That's why I never travel to remote locations as such without bringing a buddy or two. This quiz is FUBAR. Yeah...well, I answered the first question as "I get back in my truck" thinking 'screw this, I'm not getting lost' - so, technically I should have passed the quiz right? Survival is avoidance!...

I voted for "Horse / Donkey / Mule / Oxen - wagon trails...." Better speed and companionship. Plus, the addition of an animal could warn of encroaching zeds, or other humans. It's also a little bit harder to pull someone off of a horse than it is a mountain bike. Lastly, horses can carry more - good...
