Re: My First Pistol: What are the Options?

Glock 19/26 or a .357 revolver. Safety's are the last thing you want to be worrying about when you need to use your gun, and when you want a gun for self defense, you want something thats mindbogglingly reliable. Hard to beat a glock. If you don't like carrying with one in the chamber, a revolver ha...

SM26005 Optic (Sightmark EoTech Clone)

SM26005 is a fairly new model from sightmark that is receiving good reviews. Its about $200. Anyone have good/bad things to say about it? It looks nice.

Re: most useful caliber for lever action in my area

Out of an 18 inch barrel, .357 is ballistically similar to .30-30, especially in some of the hotter .357 loads, or those made for rifles. Maybe I just love .357, but thats what I would suggest. There are a lot of really good commercial loads for it, and in a rifle its recoil is very tame. That marli...

Re: So someone is rattling my doors on a regular basis.

Trail camera is a great idea. Also getting a security system is not a bad idea, as they can give you outside camera's and the like. More expensive, but consider a fence and a gate for the back yard, with a decent lock. Around my neck of the woods we have problems with people stealing AC unit stuff, ...

Re: Name your Dream 3 Gun Carry

If I did not need to take a shotgun I would substitute it for a .357. Probably my SP101 or an LCR, as a last ...

Re: need an inch bag for under 150

I think the ILBE is an excellent choice. I have one, as well as a LOT of other bags, and I rather like the ILBE. For me, once its adjusted, its very easy to wear and has plenty of room for my sleep system, cook system, food, etc. I think mine was $35 bucks on e-bay, though shipping was almost as much.

I was making plans for getting a new Siaga-12 to replace the one I sold, and wanted to pick up a VEPR. It seems sneaking this in, with other things, is a stealthy way to ban specific fire arms from sale :(. Hopefully I can still get some of these before they sky rocket, though I doubt it.

Re: 12 Gauge Pump vs Lever Action for HD & SHTF

For home defense I think I would like the shotgun, but the rifle if you are outside the door. A .357 rifle hits pretty hard and has good capacity.

Re: Is the Ruger Mini 30 "Tactical" the perfect rifle for me

Would you consider a Veper? Their 7.62x54r rifle fire a powerful round without to bad of a kick (imo) and the ammo is so cheap you can stack it very very very deep.

Rifle is cheaper than the mini 30 and mags are about the same or cheaper too.

If you do not find your way well, some sort of trail marker is a great way to help you find your way. Put them all on one side when you are going out, so if you get lost and need to go back, when you find one, you will know which side to put it too in order to get back.

Well maybe just put a piece of PVC or a thing of electrical tape around a big marker to hold it at the height you want, and then put a case against the marker and spin it around to get it covered?

Wont the ink run on hot cases?
