Re: Best things to stock up on for lighting?

I just returned from a prepper convention where I bought some lights from Waka Waka and various UV designs. I never seen these before and was interested in trying them out. The Waka Waka stuff can be used as a flashlight or reading light, is solar powered and can charge cell phones, ipods and other ...

Re: Spoiled preps, your suffering is our joy

Regardless, since apparently rice ends up tasting like plastic after a while if you leave it in the bags (I did not know that), it wasn't that big of a loss. What kind of rice were you buying? I would assume you guys are getting the 20lb. bags from Asian supermarkets for $8-10. Most of those come i...

If I owned a supermarket, I would charge the normal price for the first case of water and something more exorbitant for any additional cases to discourage hoarding and reselling.

Re: Realistic Ammo Stockpile Per Gun?

Re: Time for a new minivan. Suggestions, experience etc.

If you're buying used, then the third gen Odyssey (2005-2010) was considered the best minivan of that era. It always came out on top of every minivan comparison. The Sienna was always runner-up.

Re: Help me pick a 9mm

I own a Glock 17 and a S&W M&P9. Like you, I find something a bit awkward about the Glock and do not shoot as well with it. Some say it's the recoil or the grip angle. The S&W is a great alternative at around the same price point. Plus, you can swap out the barrel ($70) and magazines ($35) and have ...

Re: I've got 10,000 to spend

Your knowledge of MSRP (and strange willingness to pay full MSRP for every item) is very impressive, I hereby concede the debate. You win. Happy? You told the guy to customize any DD rifle for under $2K. Where else is he going to get it custom built outside of DD? I had to wait weeks on their wait ...

Re: I've got 10,000 to spend

No, just you, I guess. The MSRP on the v7 is just over 1500. If you payed $700 more for an SSA trigger and a chrome BCG, yeah dude, you got taken up the ass hard. Maybe that isn't it, and you "customized" more than that. I'm sure you could add $700 worth of accessories, if, again, you just really r...

Sorry you got ripped off, brother. ;-) I don't know if you realize, but DD raised their prices at the beginning of the year. My v.2 was $1400 in December and now I believe it is around $1800. My customized v.7 with SSA trigger and chrome BCG ran $2200 out the door. That's simply the MSRP that DD ch...

You can get a DD set up any way you want for under 2,000. Nope. I have a DD coming this week that went well over $2000. Don't forget that they will add about $200 for some BS federal build tax. $10,000 isn't that much, but this is how I'd budget it (all prices after tax and fees): - shotgun: Benell...

You've obviously never tried to walk through the aftermath of a tornado (I assume hurricanes would be similar, but I've never experienced one).
