    If you were starting over what would your survival guns be?

    I guess I would have to go with the following. As the list goes, they get less important to my needs. 1 .22LR Rifle (either a 10/22 or any of the marlin tube fed variants) 2 9mm Pistol (I like the Smith M&P9) 3 12ga Shotgun with a couple diff barrels (I like the Mossberg 500) 4 Bolt Rifle for larger game (I like my Mosin) 5 .22 cal Air rifle (something in the 750+fps range) cheap and fairly quiet 6 .410 or 20ga shotgun for small game hunting (maybe the Rossi combo, that way I have a second.22) 7 .338 Lapua Mag (What the hell, I had to put something interesting in here. haha)

    Cheap Sem-Automatic Sniper Rifle?

    Even before the prices went up, i wouldn't consider a Garand a "cheap" sniper rifle. They cost double the price of any gun I have ever owned... As for the Mosin. I love mine. And i only paid $119 for it. Mint condition, unfired, and matching stamps. But ammo has gotten REAL SCARCE... I can find 5.56 and .308, but NO 7.62X54R. As for the Ruger .308 Scout. Borderline on the "cheap" but IMPOSSIBLE to find in a right handed bolt. If you are a leftie... They are everywhere. But before prices went crazy, magazines were $75. I guess since we are talking about rifles in the range from the Rugers to the Garands, we should ad the M14

    Gransfors Bruk Wildlife Hatchet

    Yes, definitely a lifetime tool. I already had a "chinese" hatchet, but I was tired of toys. The metal in that thing was so bad that it was dangerous. This one is MUCH better. Wish i could find a 1911 for $69 these days...
  8. I received my GB Wildlife hatchet today and all I can say is WOW!!! What a great tool. Hand forged in Sweden. You can literally shave with it too. Definitely the best feeling handle I have found to date. I didn't get mine from Amazon, but i included this link so that you could see what it looks like. http://www.amazon.com/Gransfors-Bruks-Wildlife-Hatchet/dp/B000WIX6YC/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1359508412&sr=8-4&keywords=gransfors+bruks

    Right handed,left eyed?

    I am right handed left eye dominant. No one ever even realized it until I was about 30 (started shooting when 5 or 6). For pistols, i hald in right handed stance and move it over in front of my left eye. As for rifles, I just shoot them as a normal rightie would. I've never had any issues.

    Alabama PBS TV

    I can relate to you Hoss. I caught the tail end of an episode. It was fairly educational. I didn't learn much from it But many would. My father was a Forestry Engineer and my grandfather was a historian and game warden for 30 something years. I grew up "out there" haha. But it was refreshing to watch... even though it was on PBS.

    Knife in Get Home bag

    I have the BG Scout as my EDC. I keep it clipped just inside my front pocket. I use it ALOT at work and like was said above (about WV) if you dont have a knife in Alabama, you stick out. haha

    Slings

    When I was a kid, we used to use slings to have neighborhood fights using "green" sweetgum balls. You did NOT want to get hit! It was like poorman's paintball. haha Anyway, I was always pretty good at it, but havent tried one in about 30 years. By the way, We used the round and round your head technique and I could routinely hit a mailbox sized target at about 15-20 yards. Dont ask why I used a mailbox for a size estimate. We hand made our slings using a giant roll of hemp cord that we had at the house. I just cant remember what we used for the pocket. Probabably a piece of cloth or vinyl. We got quite good at it though.

    10/22 barrel upgrade recommendations

    I agreet totally snake. I really like the Colibri's. Good for dispatcing furry pests indoors as well. But are a REAL PAIN to load by hand. I have thought about buying one of those 10/22 Short mags. I think it's Volquartsen that makes them. But they are expesive at about $45 each. They also make a bolt that will cycle with shorts, but I dont want that. Hand cycling is fine, but I WOULD like to hand cycle from the mag. haha
