Re: HD & SHTF rifle for under $600

I would get an AK. You can build an AR too for that price. But an AK you can probably get locally for that price.

Re: Is Run and Gun Training useful?

Running and gunning where you just run around and shoot stuff in standing without cover is probably not much better training than standing still and shooting stuff. Its still good practice for getting the sights on the target and such. The guys in the second video I could not take very seriously. WT...

Re: questions for plate carrier set up

A hydration carrier on the back. For me, personally, I don't like a lot of stuff on the plate carrier. Consider a scout belt (which is much easier to take off and on if you want to go looking through your IFAK) or something like a versipack or the like which will let you carry stuff. Or a small back...

Re: 30K Year Old Virus Resurrected-unseen threat???

Virus's are pretty scary. A pandemic Flu is probably the #1 thing on my list of things I actually believe might cause SHTF in my life time. The news out of China is always super scary in this reguard.

The idea of virus's we have no immunity to being re-aquired by the population at large is scary.

Re: Pseudo-PDW

I vote for Tavor or a piston AR pistol. But overall the Tavor. Its a beautiful gun and pretty small. An AR pistol is typically going to have a long ass buffer tube that both looks silly and makes even a short barrelled AR pistol as long or longer than a 16 inch folded stock AK. An AMD-65 with its st...

Re: Tips on handling shotgun recoil

Get a good but pad. A nice, thick, good butt padd. Hold the shotgun firmly against your shoulder. Tuck in your arm and make sure you have it against your side. On the arm holding the pump, if you can, hold the inner part of your arm against your body. The more contact your arms make with your body t...

Hiding your food from bears.

This was a fun video I saw on a bear that really wanted to share some campers food.



So how do you all keep bears from your snacks (and other things bears might want to chew on) when you are camping in bear country?

Re: Firearms Chat Part 2: Bullpups are all the rage!

So since Glocks are still in their "two years ago you were a $350 pistol now you're a $600 pistol because reasons" phase, what do you all think of a S&W SD9VE as my first CC/training pistol? It feels good to my hands, has a round on the comparably sized G19, and I've heard generally good things abo...

Re: CZ 75 compact, all steel overview

Nice review.

I like double action triggers for the first shot in a semiauto since it makes an accidental ND if your finger goes where it shouldn't in a stressful situation less likely.
