Re: Are shotguns worthwhile?

Are shotguns worthwhile? The answer is emphatically yes. They wouldn't have survived the test of time if they weren't. Even during the age of the machine gun, the shotgun was one of the most feared weapons on the battlefield and nothing else can touch the versatility of it. You can kill everything f...

New Guy from Indiana!

Hey all, been a lurker for a while now and finally decided to join up and start posting. I guess I should've made an intro first, but ehh, oh well. I'm from Indiana, the land of flat land and corn........

Re: E&E/Supplemental Kit

Bit of experience with wet wipes like that... The pack never completely closes after you open it, and the wipes will dry out. For that reason I prefer individually packed wipes even at the expense of extra packaging. Thanks Murph, I actually use baby wipes all the time and my thought with the dispo...

Of all the things. I wouldn't skimp on the poncho. You may not neccesarily need those huge rubber USGI ones but at least a mid range. I would sugest a sea to summit. What does the credit card tool do that the multi tool does not? If the bag stays in the car. Then you need to keep your water fresh. ...

Re: Any Maxpedition Falcon II users out there?

I got mine from BotachTactical.com a long time ago and I think it was made by KZ. Not sure if they're still around.

Re: Any Maxpedition Falcon II users out there?

I have several friends who run the Falcon II and IMO it can hold more than the yoke/suspension is capable of. If you got a piece of .080 kydex and cut it to act as an interior frame then it would definitely help. Filling it with gear AND a hydration bladder really shows its true weakness as well. Al...

Re: TAG's Banshee Plate Carrier Review

I've been using my Banshee for about 6 months now and have put in around 48 hours of training time with it. So far so good. I went with the Eagle Industries shoulder pads for my setup and while they don't fit perfectly they feel great. Mine is in a transition phase or I'd get pics but I'll be runnin...

Re: E&E/Supplemental Kit

Oh and actually, this kit is being built to operate independently of my main kit, but in a minimalist kind of way. Yeah, I was looking to make a small, light, but functional kit too. My latest version the kit I put together uses the same style bag as you have: Murph's Personal Survival Kit (PSK) ht...

Re: Murph's Personal Survival Kit (PSK)

Thanks for the shout out! One way to reduce some of the size is to take less used items and vaccum seal them if you have a food saver. The SOL Bivy is a great item but for emergencies so I vaccumed it flat so that it was easier to pack items with and it worked very well.

Re: E&E/Supplemental Kit

You could consider swapping to a head lamp and add some batteries if you feel your 2nd person would need it. Not knowing what is in your primary kit I can't say what else you may require. I actually just posted my main kit in the BOB thread. I do want a headlamp but to get one as small as I'd like,...

E&E/Supplemental Kit

I've been working on this kit for a while and recently expanded it from only the Pelican 1060 case to the Maxpedition Proteus Knock-Off bag. The main goal of this kit is to add a lightweight bag that stays in my car that adds some redundancy to my GHB, can aid a second person who might be with me, a...

Re: Show off your BOB -- Pics Links and Descriptions Only

I didn't see a section for Get Home Bags, so I'm lumping this in here with BOB's. The purpose of this bag is to take me home from any place I may get stranded. I normally travel less than 50 miles from home so this has everything I need for that except a change of clothes which stays in my car 24/7....
