I would probably try to rescue survivors after I am set up to take care of them. After all I have to sleep sometime and it helps to have someone watching the perimeter while you sleep. Also more people means better ability to push the undead back from an area for cultivation. Those cans of spam aren...

Getting your weapon into action involves one of two scenarios 1) You don't have your weapon on you- shoot without sling 2) You have your weapon on you- shoot with the sling both are non issues with either sling choice. You walk around with a round chambered in your rifle with the safety off? That d...

True enough, but if you can't get your weapon into action in time who cares how acurate you are.

Working with rifles as I do every day I am becoming more and more convinced that a serious fighting gun needs a sling that does not pass near the control surfaces in any way. Three point slings tend to get in the way of magazine changes and could really bugger up charging the weapon and removing the...

I have two of Cold Steel's plastic bokkens. They are kind of soft and flexible. Very good for training with inexperienced partners. But I doubt they would take a pounding (or deliver one) like Japanese white oak. If the Brooklyn Smasher is the same way I doubt you will be able to hit any out of the ...

Generally for a riot situation you will have an arrest team behind the line of guys with the shields and clubs. Their job is to move past the line and secure the inciters and move them back behind the line. It is very hard to put felx cuffs on a resisting subject. It is much easier to get on steel c...

It sure does make the case for having the family sleeping quarters on the second floor of the residence. One man on the stair with a rifle can hold off a lot of people. A handgun or shotgun can be used if the bad guys make it to the second floor before the alarm is sounded. Full bookshelves make goo...

I mean, what practical reason is there for me to own a AK? They are quite useful for home defense as well.

I don't think using a firearm at that close range would be a good idea. To much splatter that could lead to infection. This is a situation where you will almost certainly have to use some form of hand to hand if for nothing else to gain a good position to strike with your mele weapon of choice. Befo...

As far as illegal, if a property owner/manager posts a sign that say “no weapons allowed” as part of the condition of allowing you entry, and you take a weapon, you can be convicted of misdemeanor trespassing. Are you sure about that? My understanding is it is only tresspassing if the owner finds o...

My wife pointed out that stickers are bad for the kids we have, so blackberries - though VERY tempting - are out.
They are a great learning experience though. Great way for junior to understand that when Mommy and Daddy say not to touch something he should leave it alone.

A Surefire is worth it. I suggest saving your money for one of the models that come with a pocket clip. I have one on me right now.

In other news I walked around the town of Gjilane today. Nothing happened except I bought some shower curtains. They were expensive. That is all.

Also, there are many species of hedge that when planted together and trimmed correctly form a natural wall.
