I'll help if I can. I am a former corrections officer so maybe I can give you a break down on holing up in a jail or prison. I am currently a security contractor in Kosovo, take that with a grain of salt this isn't high speed low drag or anything just sitting in a tower. I carry an M-16 and have som...

Thanks for the info TXgunnersM8, mine is obviously out of date. How many of your shipmates are into shooting and are any good at it. I was pretty disappointed at the level of marksmanship among the army types I am hanging out with these days. Also I have heard the Navy is putting together some force...

I once caught someone's fist in my hand kungfu style while it was flying towards my face. That ended the fight right there before it started. I also once broke a man's during a fight. That also ended things. Of the two I have to think the second is the most effective since the guy with the broken ar...

Try the various volumes of "The Poor Man's James Bond" at least one of them had info about the process.

Also see if your library or a local book store has any books on reloading. There should be a chapter or two in a decent reloading manual.

After buying all the stuff that you'd need to make these bullets, wouldn't you be able to buy thousands of bullets with the same amount of money? Plus, I believe you can only make .22 caliber bullets this way. The cost of materials comes to about $.02 a round. That is a lot better then factory. If ...

How to make your own jacketed bullets.

If you are using motoroil long term you want to use synthetics. Organic petroleum will break down and be harmful to your weapon after a while.

Also don't use simple green. It may be all right on a glock and something with a similar finish, but avoid it for any other gun.

Leave the camo stuff at home if you can. The Japanese have a thing about war and the US military. Part of it is there are a whole lot of US military stationed in Japan and they sometimes misbehave. (And the Japanese media loves to blow those incidences way out of proportion.) Especially leave the Ma...

I think the Navy will be a non starter when it comes to getting off the ships. They don't have a firearm for everyone on board and nothing like a large supply of ammunition for the firearms they do have. Sure a carrier battle group might have a platoon of SEALS and a couple squads of Marines guardin...

Florida used to have a naval militia equipped by the state. And our civil airpatrol had weapons installed on their civillian aircraft during WW2, they even sunk a nazi uboat with them.

Sadly none of that has survived to this day.
