Re: So, what the heck do we do about Halloween?

The answer to the question is deeper than Halloween. The 'rona isn't going away anytime soon, so only you can decide how much or how long you will curtail your activities out of precaution. Covid may well be in general circulation for decades. Personally I view risks to my life based on likelyhood, ...

Re: Most Underrated Items in your BOB/INCH/Get Home Bags

Soap. Cleaning wipes are fine, but using soap and water to defunk is a real morale booster.

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

Rossi offered a mare's leg for a while, I'd probably go with that. Their rifles are more than a pound lighter than a Henry and with an hours work are just as smooth. The prices now are high though since they haven't been imported in a while. Now Henry did offer one in 22 LR and 22 mag, that seems li...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

Hopefully Ruger increases the value equation for Marlin lever actions. They cost as much as Henry gun, but their fit and finish is lower than Rossi. They aren't even close to the same league as Henry for smoothness and fit and finish right now. Hopefully Ruger can either get the price down or the qu...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

Apparently PSA-manufactured M1 Rifles are not out of the question . Speculation is, of course, rife. Handi-rifles and related break-opens seem a good probability, due to relative ease of manufacture. But here's an apparent PSA employee saying they're at least considering M1 Rifles. A lot of people ...

Sierra Bullets is buying Barnes Ammunition. Sturm, Ruger and Company is buying Marlin and Long Range. Franklin Armory is buying Bushmaster. They're an AR manufacturer with a bit of a penchant for oddballs, like the non-SBR smooth-bore Reformation. Sportman's Warehouse is buying Tapco. Huh, those se...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

Well, the chance for a contested election just jumped with the release of the Project Veritas video. People on both sides aren't going to trust the results, which increases the chance there will be widespread violence. It's a real shame we haven't invested in real election security in the US.

Very true the incident in Wisconsin is a prime example of this. The cell phone video that was pushed by the MSM was a single snip of the action. This video (put together by the kid's attorney) tells a very different story by using several videos. An argument can be made that this video is biased bu...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

I don't put credence in any cell phone video coverage I see. The camera has always started rolling *after* the cause of confrontation and we're always missing that crucial datapoint that explains *why* someone is getting shot or getting the beat-down. It's good to be skeptical of video for sure. Wh...

Any success with the "malcolm" approach is short lived and always consumed by the followers of that approach at a later date. Nothing will reverse the events that resulted in Ms. Taylor's death. There is a reason this world is referred to as the Vale of Tears for the last 2,000 +/- years. The truth...

More like diffusion of accountability. An innocent woman is dead, but so many errors were committed on so many levels by so many different parties that no one person has been found to be directly responsible for her death. It's a shitty situation, but that's the grand jury's conclusion. From a prep...

Tonight is a night to focus on safety friends, and that likely holds true through the weekend. The decision by the grand jury in Louisville has people really fired up, more than I've seen with other specific incidents.

The deal hasn't been inked yet but it looks to be t...

Is there strong demand for ammo cans where you live? Around here the 30 cal cans go for $7 or $8. You'd have to sell a lot of them to fund raise for a significant purchase.
