    Handguns: Revolvers or Semi-automatics

    If it were just myself, I might make different choices, but since my firearms are likely to be used by many different people in my family group, simple and dependable become more important than large magazines. You can't beat a revolver for simple, effective, and easy to learn the basics.
  3. I wish it weren't so, Gents, but the vast majority of our nation has never had the need to pay such close attention to their situation. Think about it. I think we learn this type of thing when we have to, or if we are lucky enough to be educated on it at an early age. Most of us who think we would be able to catch something like that LEARNED it by necessity, walking point, rear cover, door gunner, CAP units or what have you. We are the minority. Sadly, I believe America is going to learn "situational awareness" the hard way. Sadly, that's the way we learned, too...

    Water storage

    Any water storage will be heavy. Pure water weighs 8.34 pounds per gallon. Your three gallon water brick contains 25.02 pounds of water plus whatever the empty container weighs. For storage, the larger the container, the more efficiently you use your storage space. However you also lose portability. Its atrade off, like almost everything!

    Help me answer a friend, how much ammo is enough?

    I realize I am the minority on this one! As much ammo as he currently has listed, I think he could at least slow down. What is the condition of the rest of his preps? He already has enough firepower for at least a squad. Does he have food/water/medical/clothing/shelter covered also that well???

    Pay off debt or buy silver?

    Pay of your debts. Structure your life within a well planned budget. Prepping ranks as part of that budget. Good luck!

    AM/FM/Short Wave For the Cache

    You must have a "good one" then. I have three fairly powerful fm stations within 6 miles of me. I can only get one, and that one bleeds thru over the whole dial on that eton. The station knob is frictionless and moves on its own to drift off that one station. Would you like to buy another one for a backup? If I had 2 of these, I'd still have none.
  10. OK- I am really tire of of trying to find a plain old radio to listen to the news and information on. I have tried several and so far they seem to be complete junk. Poor reception, poor speaker quality, poor everything. Who knows what I should try next? I think I want the following features: Solar Rechargeable by crank or plug in(and not take forever to charge)(Should run 30 minutes on a charge) AM FM Shortwave Bands GOOD to Great reception Sturdily built External jack for antenna add on.(Could live without this if the reception is GREAT

    Auguson Farms buckets

    I have tried several of their products- Scrambled eggs, pancakes, Textured Vegetable Protein(Fake Meat), chicken soup, sweet corn, potato slices, butter powder, milk powder, and granola cereal. In my opinion- All were excellent in taste and texture EXCEPT the TVP- It was good, but it wasn't meat; And the chicken noodle soup was a little "slippery" for want of a better term, but still the flavor was good. I did not like the pancakes flavor, but the wife thought they were great. Go figure. I would recommend that you practice preparation a little, as it does take quite some time for some of them to re-hydrate. Augason sells a small can for everyday and trial use. I did that to decide what I did not want when I bought the pails. Also Augason is in some kind of relation ship with Sams and Walmart, so you can find some of the stuff in the local stores and save on shipping. After trying the small cans, I did go on to buy larger quantity in pails. Hope this helps
  12. Spent some time organizing and inventorying the store room...

  14. I also have the shovel. I haven't yet put it to a heavy test, but it is very sturdily built.
