Re: Observations while picking up a new pistol

I have noticed a lot of people who don't know guns buying guns as well when I have bought guns at stores recently. Lots of pistols and shot guns. Always encouraging.

I love that the guy in that video was arguing with the dudes in the BMP.

Re: Night Security

Five years on an aircraft Carrier has given me the same problem. I have like 4 alarms to get me up in the morning (though I typically wake up on time anyway). I can sleep through like anything. I worry about not hearing an intruder either, but my solution was to put a stout lock on my bedroom door a...

Re: Ukraine unrest

The whole of Crimea is not worth the bones of a single Alabamian grenadier. Sometimes you have to give up on the "good fight" if it means preventing a wider conflict that could easily spiral out of control. I wonder what the English of 1918 felt about their 1839 treaty with Belgium. Would love to k...

Re: Ukraine unrest

So because Russia has nukes we should let them take over every non nuclear nation they want? So how do we contain N Korea from taking S Korea? Ya by using conventional forces. We can contain and even fight Russia without going nuclear. We don't have to conquer Russia to keep them out of the Ukraine...

The folding stock on the VZ-2008 makes getting a good cheek weld hard for shooting it accurately, but thats an issue with most folding stock AK's.

Does it pay well? Well, I think the military life does. For America, it would pay big. It would allow us to see that our allies got to sell their nat gas to Europe.

Re: Non-Dominant Hand Shooting & CC

Get a revolver. You can load them plenty fine with one hand.

Its not ideal in most situations where you can have a semi auto, but in terms of reloading with one hand, they are really easy. No slide to wrack.

Re: HD & SHTF rifle for under $600

SKS's are not bad guns. But an AK is worlds better, and it is only a little more. When SKS's were $89 (heck even $150) they were great buys. But there are tons of cheap AK's right now, and the SKS's are often $250+ and the lower end ones are not in great condition or the ones you want. A GOOD SKS is...

Re: Does brand actually matter for IWB "hybrid" holsters?

I have bought some cheap holsters like that at gun shows.

Galco holsters are expensive, but in my opinion, they are well worth it. That company makes a hell of a holster.

Re: Hobo Hilton Homeless Living in Storage Area

Its crazy to me that we have all these forclosed empty homes. Way more than we have homeless people. In detroit, which has its share of poor folks, the number of abandoned homes out numbers the homeless by a great deal. Yet they would rather bulldoze them than let the homeless live in them. :crazy:

Re: Are you prepped for a national power outage?

Eh.

I have supplies for a long time for myself and a hand full of friends.

My biggest worry in a long term grid down (long term being 30+ days) would be all the people who are not preppers.

Folks that are hungry with hungry kids and hungry lovers are going to do some sideways shit.

Re: My personal experience from Saturday night

A good way to hide a gun by a door is to have a little table by the door. Put a strong magnant on the bottom of the table, it will hold a gun, but you can still easily grab the gun when answering the door. A holster works too. They are unlikely to look under the table.

Re: How do you organize your bug out bag?

I keep my sleeping stuff (pillow, sleeping bag, tarps and stakes) in the bottom, then my other stuff in stuff sacks in the next layer. My pot is on top of that.

In the lid for my bag I have frequent use items like TP, a poncho and a light. Also some glow sticks.
