  1. The following story/question is purely Fictional.....And would never actually be tried at home... Here is the Scenario: This thought came up after a friend of mine ask me if I thought there was a way to completely stop a basic vehicle.....or how could I get someone to abandon the vehicle.......When you only had a few seconds to respond.... So.......Close quarters....out about 25/50 yards.....The unwelcomed vistors are in a vehicle.....Would Running a few rounds of M193 or M855's into their gas tank...followed by a couple of rounds of M856 tracers.....Do you think the tracers would/could cause it to ignite ...which would be the sole purpose of this fictional scenario ....??? I have only had experience in sending tracers down range out to and way over 100 yds.....Where you can see them having reached full capacity And for some reason I just can't seem to talk my buddy into taking a run at me in his truck to test this theory out !!! 1:9 twist....but at this range....Stabilizing the round is less important than igniting the target..... Thoughts....Opinions......Volunteers with a full tank of gas !!! JohnBoy
  2. Hey Vicioustom.... I know the feeling....My better half ask me if I realized how outraged I would get sometimes after watching that BS....So....one day I just look at her and said " Call and turn that *@ box off !!! ".....Now, like you...we watch movies...a documentary.....anything that has not been stunk up by Culprit Corporate Media .....And honestly....I feel a lot better.... Check out a few....if you would like to know some that people I know watch and feel like they can trust somewhat....let me know.....I will send you a list....You Decide.... JohnBoy

    Gas, Gas, GAS!!!

    That has been a thought/scenario that I have run through my head more than once.....living on the Gulf Coast...as you know during hurricane Katrina the Soldiers were ordered door to door to take any and all weapons....beat the hell out of an 80 something year old woman because she had a pistol to protect herself and her home and did not want to leave her house....Even close by... just outside of downtown New Orleans..a lot of the soldiers went door to door and confiscated weapons....Do I think it could happen....I pray that it does not....but repeat after me....NDAA....NDAA....If you see and understand what is going on in our world today and tomorrow.....You would be hard pressed to not give it some thought ....And a Plan. And Yes ...."The Chamber " is one big ole Hell Hole !!! But there was always something funny that would happen.................Funny .....I must be sicker than I thought....maybe I need to get my Meds adjusted !!! JohnBoy
  4. This post really contains several things/questions that I am curious about..... There is a small segment of society (And I feel sorry for those who have not heard him) that even know who John Prine is......The Song "Spanish Pipedream" ...AKA " Blow up your TV "....was written back in 1971.....Probably one of the greatest song writers living...IMHO...He is all over YoTube Blow up your TV Throw away the newspaper Move to the country Build yourself a home Have a lot of children Raise them on Peaches Let them find Jesus ...on their own...... How many of you out there in Survival Land have turned your TV's OFF ....I don't mean just turned them off for the night....I mean had gotten so sick of corporate media that you had them completely DISCONNECTED !!! I did... How many of you watch and listen to mostly " Alternative News" sources.....I Do...I like hearing the truth..... And which ones are they ? Who's your Favs ? I have met more and more people who have totally disconnected from the corporate media BS....and gone only to the internet for their news..... Whatcha Thinking !!! JohnBoy

    An Ammo heads-up for M4 owners!! FYI

    Yea...I grew up just south of Bham....and The last time I went into downtown Bham...I think you would need at least 500 rounds to get back out !!! I do love that part of Alabama....and wish I could get back in some area outside of Bham...a little less populated...... I think I forgot ( That sounds weird !!! ) that the Wallyworld & Palmetto are only 420 rounds...but hey you get a new ammo can and they are all on stripper clips.....gotta count for something......
  6. I think that some of you folks will enjoy this person on Youtube... I only watch what is called " Alternative News Sources "....and I found this guy on Youtube " Demcad " who lives in Flint Michigan...just outside of Detroit....I find this guy to be extremely interesting to watch....He is a realist...and besides being very intelligent also has a lot of common sense about life..and I see him as having a heart as big as he is ....a super source of info...and gives myself an insight as to what is and can happen in a city like Detroit....and how it has spilled out into smaller areas around it.....He has the ability to give you the feel of what it is like there......and my heart goes out to him....because only through him would I ever want to experience any aspect of a city like that.......No one should have to live that way. So go to Youtube.....just type in DEMCAD....and take a few minutes to hear about his part of the world....

    An Ammo heads-up for M4 owners!! FYI

    I checked at Wallyworld the other day....around here ...Pensacola Florida area and over in Alabama there are only about 3 locations that even carry them...and seem to only get about 4 or 5 of them at a time..first come first serve.....As of 2/22/2012...they are telling me that they have gone up to $159.99 !!! And 1 store is at $169.99.....By the time I run around searching for them ...burning up gas @ 3.57 a gal....I figure that you are better off dealing with the folks at Palmetto State Armory at $149.99....They are great folks...they are growing fast so they do get bogged down from time to time but are working their butts off keeping up !!! And what I like most about them is they DO NOT Charge those outrageous shipping cost a few of the other dealers do..they just had to increase their cost to $14.00 (Was $12.00) for 1000 rounds....And they seem to have some of the best prices on about everything else....Google them....Palmetto State Armory...they are in Columbia SC....and Beaufort SC......Take a look JohnBoy Ammo and Toilet Paper.....What most guys are concerned about !!!
  8. I really did not know how to phrase this post/thread..that is why I deleted all bu the heading.....I, like a massive segment of society, do wonder what will and when it will happen.....I have spent over a decade working on my home and my small part of the world here in Pensacola....and like a lot of folks have reached an age and financially can only do so much... I remember humping my gear in the military....19 yrs old .....excellent shape ....and it was tough most of the time....and now I have to look in the mirror and tell myself that " I am not the Man I use to be "....so I know and accept the physical facts....I will not be able to walk out here humping 50-100 lbs of gear.....Maybe I have seen and experienced too much....Military...Vietnam...Lived in 4 foreign countries....and life in general...I have lived under Martial Law....and it is not the best feeling you will ever have....I, as a lot of you know that it is going to get ugly...how ugly ?....and for how long ? And I, like some of you really have no support system...family....friends....neighbors...that are awake yet.....It is not a good thought when you realize that "NO ONE HAS YOUR BACK ".....And I look around at people in my area and most of them do not have a clue....I just watch them and wonder how they cannot see what is happening in our world....Seemingly so many people are clueless...I think it is called the "Normalcy Bias"......Or maybe Ron White is right " You Can't Fix Stupid !!! " I have done all I can and know to do....and like a lot of us...We wonder if it is ever enough..or are we doing all the right things.....I find all of this amazing that it can and does have the same effect on those of us who are trying to prepare.....and no matter how hard we try to carry on in our lives....just trying to live out our lives in peace and safety, that it oft times seems like our concerns are forever on our minds.... This site is a wonderful place ....I hear...see....and feel what people are going through.....and hope that all of you keep posting your thoughts.....As I have realized....We need to work closer together as a Country....and get back to where we were decades ago....when things seemed more simple....and neighbors use to join together to help each other.....I have Prayed that people will come together and help each other.....If you have not served....The first thing you understand in the Military is that you put your life in the hands of the guy beside you and he puts his life in yours.....that is what I mean when I said I did not feel like anyone "Had My Back "..........I want that feeling back.

  9. I posted on here about the Gulf Coast...Pensacola Florida.....and I have been trying to find out some info about what everyone would consider a S...M....or Large city as far as population...Pensacola is about 50,000.....Large Naval Base....and various other Military facilities in the area....Hell...I think we even have our own CIA Satellite office !!! So....Does a city of this size make any sense ??? If there were Hospitals open....would any of the (What seems like) 1273 Walmarts in this town help !!! Being a Service connected Disabled Vietnam Vet....And we have one of the largest ...more Modern....and Newest VA Clinic in the country.....and yes I need them....Do you think they would be open ??? Pros.....Cons..... Is there anyone out there with a mountain top BOL that would like to adopt a 61 Vet who is a member of the " 1000 Yard Club " ??? All input would be appreciated..... Thanks JohnBoy
  10. Well......Here I am....Living in Pensacola Florida....NE Section of town.....I have my entire life tied up in what I have here.....I am 61 ....A Vietnam Vet....No Family.....No Children....and an entire neighborhood that is " ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL"...about everyone suffers from the " Normalcy Bias !!! "......and wonder pretty much on a daily basis if I should just grab the dog.....My defense stash, preps and head to the hills while I am physically able. If there is any other folks from this area that are awake I can't seem to find them.....So, come on folks ....chime in with your feelings and thoughts about this town and area.....The Good...the Bad....and the Ugly......The Hurricanes are a given.... I do have a friend that lives over in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores Alabama area....whole area only has 3 main ways/bridges to access the Island (Other than by water)....So, it could be shut down from folks flowing in and out of the place......Super low crime factor (For Now Anyway !!! ).....Just mostly a Big Ole Tourist Trap.....Thoughts ? Any thoughts...ideas.....input ....would be very much appreciated.... Thanks... JohnBoy....." OATHKEEPER "
