    Maybe they/we should call it practicing science. You know, like in the medical proffesion it's called practicing medicine. Then no one would be dissappointed in outcomes. Just a thought.

    Ahhh, but Capt Sir, A good cigar makes a bad scotch good. Some of my favorites are, Glenlivet, an 18 year old Single Malt. Glenfiddich 12 year old Reserve Single Malt, 1991 Cragganmore 20 Year Old Faultline Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt, (it hurts to buy this one just a little.) Keep this one/and a back-up in the bar for a sip on special days if ya know whut I mean. Me too DonDon, my way that is. Couple of my favorite cigar sticks you'd find in my humidor: Cusano 18 Double Connecticut Zino Platinum Scepter (Pudge) Avo Domaine You'd also find some Partaga's, Padrons, Torano Exodus, Monte Christos, RomeoYJulietas and a possible Rocky Patel or two in my humidor. Gotta have a good even burn, good draw and good taste! I hate something you find a plug in, run burns and tastes like a brushfire...... DonDon, you're welcome to open my humidor anytime. Stay away from my Cohibas tho, they're the real thing. I just can't seem to smoke a cheap cigar, but I can sip on Cutty Sark. I cut my teeth on that back in the 70s. Kinda brings back memories.

    under ground

    Well, one thing is for sure Annette. Just for your enlightenment. If the earth began shaking, the last place I'd want to be is in a cave or mine for fear of collapse. Now an underground bunker would be a little different. If that's where you were going with this question. Oh, and welcome to the boards.. JMO dr

    As far as I'm concerned, they're doing a huge disservice to the preppers that they air by not covering thier identities. As well as feel I've done, there is no way in hell I want "everyone" to know it. I don't think I need to be graded on it either. Makes me think of "The Shelter" an old twilight zone show. As for the show itself, I've seen a couple of good episodes and I've seen some that seem to make a mockery of the prepper community. I'm sure in the minds of the preppers that were aired my last statement was in reference to, they've done what they've deemed neccesary to survive though they might be the demize of their own well being, as 7 said, they're untrained. It's my opinion and mine only that NATGEO has done a service to us as preppers and maybe, just maybe opened the eye's of the viewing audiance whom did not even have a clue as to what could take place in a time that a persons livelyhood could become one of survival. Seems to me that if everyone who watched the show would think twice and figure, damn! I better do something to get ready for what could come. Hopefully, that'd keep them from my doorstep. Yet I do tend to agree with 7 in some ways. Well, alot of ways. JMHO dr

    Who is in charge during martial law?

    Martial law is the imposition of military rule by military authorities over designated regions on an emergency basis—(usually) only temporary—when the civilian government or civilian authorities fail to function effectively (e.g., maintain order and security, and provide essential services), when there are extensive riots and protests, or when the disobedience of the law becomes widespread. In most cases, military forces are deployed to subdue the crowds, to secure government buildings and key or sensitive locations, and to maintain order.[1] Generally, military personnel replace civil authorities and perform some or all of their functions. In full-scale martial law, the highest-ranking military officer would take over, or be installed, as the military governor or as head of the government, thus removing all power from the previous executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government.[1] Martial law can be used by governments to enforce their rule over the public. Such incidents may occur after a coup d'état (Thailand 2006); when threatened by popular protest (China, Tiananmen Square protests of 1989); to suppress political opposition (Poland in 1981); to stabilize insurrections or perceived insurrections (Canada, The October Crisis of 1970). Martial law may be declared in cases of major natural disasters, however most countries use a different legal construct, such as a "state of emergency". Martial law has also been imposed during conflicts and in cases of occupations, where the absence of any other civil government provides for an unstable population. Examples of this form of military rule include post World War II reconstruction in Germany and Japan as well as the southern reconstruction following the U.S. Civil War. Typically, the imposition of martial law accompanies curfews, the suspension of civil law, civil rights, habeas corpus, and the application or extension of military law or military justice to civilians. Civilians defying martial law may be subjected to military tribunal (court-martial). etal LOCKED UP OR SHOT.... Basically, what Warrior7 said.......

    Where are we going with this?.

    Sup pal? A lot of us here have taken the oath to protect the constitution. If that be the oath you're implying you took. It's just general discussion is all. Opinions, opinions of transgressions. I'm sure you'll get interested in one of the topics and as curiosity would have it, you'll join in.

    Penatration, no prob with an arrow. Had a bet with a fella. I shot an arrow totally through a thick catalog, his 30.30 stopped somewhere in the middle. Also missed a target one day at the range. The arrow went completely through a 1/2" piece of plywood. My compounds draw is only set at 63lbs.
