  1. I love apricots! ....and especially from the tree where I can let them ripen to perfection before picking, really gotta get on the planting of a few trees around here. My youngest three have spent the last three weeks at my mothers in Kentucky and I went down to get them this weekend. My mother took me aside and showed me the " preparedness package" she bought from Patriot....I was not impressed, for someone without skills it is a good one shot buy but at $5000 it was not a good deal given her skill set. She was taken in by the solar and faraday cage largely and it does have a lot of food. Now many would be glad that their family members are doing something like this to understand my issue you need to understand just how capable she and her new husband ( I was well into my 30s when they actually married so step father is something I don't use) are. My mother was raised on a farm where they were largely self sufficient large garden, chickens, sheep, hogs, cattle...barter/ neighborly sharing and has taken herself small game and deer many times and while I was growing up we raised a HUGE garden, chickens, ducks, geese, sheep, goats, cattle, rabbits. Her husband is an Army brat who was ....well.... a hippy and lived off grid entirely or largely for a good part of his life in many parts of the country and is an experienced Hunter and gardener as well as a very good cook both in taste and maximizing food. They currently have a few dozen laying hens (she sells eggs) several goats and a nice raised bed garden that they eat and can from annually, they have a good seed bank ( some heirloom from Patriot as well as hybrid from the usual suspects) and a number of berries and edibles on their 200+ acres a half a mile from a very large lake (I love to catch persimmons ready when we go there for thanksgiving, last year I SO many!). They have a nice root cellar/storm shelter that she just had dug a few years ago that they keep well stocked already. They are already as prepared as anyone I know so this seems to me to be surprising that she felt the need to add a years worth of dehydrated food.
  2. Just to be sure we are talking about the same "mini bike" These are NOT very capable compared to an actual motocross or enduro...just so extremely simple that for post EMP you are likely to get somewhere...eventually, or at better than walking.
  3. The simplest answer is an old mini bike, one with a magneto fired brigs and Stratton engine....but these are actually harder to find and more costly than one would think for as many of them were around when I was a kid, but any magneto fired bike would be a good start as they are as simple of an electric system as there is and the components are very durable.
  4. Yeah I'll looked at them a few times. They don't say the battery capacity , but it plugs into a standard outlet(110vac 15 amp (Max)) and charges "overnight" ....so 8hrs(?) and that would include a full discharged battery...right? Then a few solar panels and invertor dedicated to charging it and you would have a 100km plus every few days. Yeah in a hard grid down a really must have.....
  5. ....there were some personality conflicts that made it difficult for some of the people to play nice....then things were said, and well, as they say the rest is history....
  6. .....well let's not be rash! ...question....with running that many rounds did you try to "foul it" or did you clean as you should? Also so I find this telling on your intent for the pistol, if I'd ran 1500 rds thru my little Keltec PF9 I'd be thinking " yea...I'd buy another..."....but then again I'm still not all that sold on polymer frames and long lives and still have a (healthy) phobia of eating slides....
  7. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/05/gaza-terrorist-groups-post-martyrdom-photos-of-palestinians-killed-in-mondays-riot-at-israeli-border/ ....you see, this is the plain truth of the matter.....there ARE people there who think they are protesting for a legitimate thing....they are the Middle Eastern version of our own media drones, they have been mis educated to believe that Palastine actually ever existed and that they have been the victims of some wrong that occurred generations ago....it is very important to Hamas and their like as well as the international liberal/socialist/globalist media/cartel/mafia to have these people to hide amoungst and give visual support to their lies, they create this protesters, some of whom believe truly that they are act for good cause, to die for them. Yet another case of their being so brave and courageous as to let other die for their cause. The issue is that some of these dead are kids that will never get a chance to learn the truth......
  8. ....well this might cement my charges in The Hague, but, oh well. Today in Israel is a trend I'd like to see continue....please do not think I do not feel for the families of any ACTUAL peaceful protestors that died, BUT for the Hamas terrorists imbedded in the crowd ( which Israel says is why they used precision shooters) good riddance! The trends I'd like to see continue are American making good on promises made along time ago and broken until now. America standing openly with her allies, despite the opinions of the world. Israel standing up and holding their Sovereignty (this one I fully expect to continue...)

  10. http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2018/05/daniel-zimmerman/hi-point-inland-manufacturing-latest-brands-to-say-no-to-dicks-sporting-goods/ I like a company that is willing to stand up....in this modern landscape, at all.... These companies, while actually not risking anything other than becoming targets for the libtards (which would only up their sales), are taking a stand to "punish(?)" Dicks and hopefully others (Walmart?...please!) for turning their backs on their customers and the very ground on which they have profited for so long. While I wish this was more something I could expect and less something to be applauded, I will take this as hopefully a movement to be more upright and less PC though out the industry.
  11. ...I have liked my PF9, it has yet to blow up in my hand at least...and I have ran +P ammo thru it as they say is doable, it is picky about a "firm hand" ( if you don't brace your hand firmly it will stove pipe "target ammo" ) otherwise is great...if a little ugly....I don't exact fault a company for getting a bad part....but judge them harshly on how they respond to any issues.
  12. × Attention Customers IMPORTANT SUB-2000 SAFETY RECALL NOTICE We have recently identified an issue with the heat treatment of certain steel tubes received from a third-party supplier from which the barrels for a limited number of Kel-Tec SUB-2000 rifles were manufactured. This could potentially cause the barrel to rupture when a cartridge is fired and could result in serious personal injury. The safety of our customers is our primary concern, so Kel-Tec has voluntarily initiated this recall because of the possibility of a barrel rupturing. This recall only affects a portion of SUB-2000s that were manufactured in 2017. To check if your firearm would need to be sent in for barrel replacement, please follow this link: SUB-2000 Recall All costs associated with the recall of your firearm shall be covered by Kel-Tec.
  13. ...in the end, whether it is the loss of a job or health issues or freak blizzard or EMP or any of the list....it is personal.
  14. ....so the barrel is longer by a bit....but the slide and frame aren't? So you can just install the "evil" original barrel?
  15. ....mind you....after running running one of those drills (usually on a few empty two liter bottles on the ground) I usually let out a low slow oooouuuuccch....and you are for sure stunned a bit yourself.
