    An oppinion on gun control.

    I agree with vonBayern And that was an truly satisfying read. But in the nearly overwhelming cacophony of the "banic" people are no longer able to listen to reason.
  2. The up armored golf cart made me spit out my coffee and the 3 strike plates duct taped to the vest was a WTF moment.
  3. Beware the mad ninja skills of gecko45.....:confused:

    favorite AR accessories

    My favorite AR accessory is an off set rail set that I mounted a low profile reflexive sight on, it's snuggled every so nicely between the mounts of the 3-9 scope. A close second would be my three point sling.

    Force Multipliers Vs. Over Redundancy in BOL Defense

    I agree snake, there is a great deal more to a scoped rifle than slapping on a scope and blasting away. To make the shot count you need to know where ypu round is going to end up. So drop, windage, elevation, amd even weather come into play. But as a force multiplier a 45-70 scoped would not do as well as a m1a or an ar15 unless you are looking to cause physiologically trauma. I dont care how hardened you are. A 480 grain JHP smashing to your buddy at range isnt gonna be to pretty. But when it is all said and done a firearm is a tool and every tool has its place. Im not going to use a45-70 to kill a squirrel (granted it would be funny in a morbid way) and im not going to use a daisy BB gun to deter a threat, as long as I have options and I do have options. From logistical stand point a 45-70 would not work as a force multiplier as well as my ar-15 due to weight and lack of flexibility. For a force multiplier just get a 240B or a tommy gun or a UMP 40. just my humble opinion.

    So what's in your fire staring kit ?

    I have a ferro rod, a magnesium stick with a steel stricker, about 2 ounes of magnesium powder in a water proof vial. The goo from a sterno heater, vaseline covered cotton balls, a few bic lighters, 2 zippos, and willy pete matches. I love those damn things, lit a cig in a snow storm, the cig didnt stay burning for long but hey I got three drags which was enough.

    Being gray and situational awareness

    Being gray is a key point but whar about after you are no longer gray? What do you do when you are in the red? Off of a site that I use to get gear for work I found these site linked to it. In my humble opinion I think they might help. Just food for thought.

    Gun Cleaning without Gun Cleaning Supplies

    In the spirit of the challenge posted above, no brushes, no rods and no solvent. I would have to make a bore snake, I would try 6 to 8 feet of 550 cord, half way down the length I would put an inch wide piece of whipping. Below that I would fray the line, above the whipping i may have to pull the core out so it will fit in a 5.56 barrel. Then windex as a solvent might work and a cotten tee shirt for patches and a wiping cloth. For a bigger bore I would use inch and a half DBN or simular line. I think that would work for the basics, if I could find some fine brass wire, woven into the frayed end would help clear any fouling. But nothing I come up with will replace a good cleaning kit. But its just an idea.

    Prep coach?

    Just curious as too how many preppers out there in the Aether are coaching some (other than on this site) in the ways of prepping? What difficulties have you encountered? What have you over looked then remembered in hindsight? Any sea stories to share? I am helping a friend out with his prepping and want to make sure I dont blow his mind with info overload yet give him enough info and direction to help. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    I definitely second the sharing of info, it was one of the worst things, being underway for a month and not haveing a clue where you are or where you are going. I think the command did it on purpose .... damn opsec....

    My first EDC, Need advice

    Im rebuilding my EDC and stumbled across this in a pile of collected gear and I think its awsome so I did some hunting online and found it. So what do y'all think I know it is niche item but I do see potential
  16. I use two oil stones and a wet finishing stone all natural quarried stone, and if needed follow up with the inside of my belt. Three of my knives I keep sharp enough to shave with..... and some times do. its a great shave. I got one that would flay a sheet of note book paper. I dont care much for systems I dont feel there is much skilled involved. But they strike your fancy then more power to you.

    Force Multipliers Vs. Over Redundancy in BOL Defense

    I agree on all points Sir, if I had the money for a scope that could handle the recoil of my 45-70gov I would put rounds out there as preemptive tactic pending I have the line of sight... which is rarely the case. But in a perfect situation with a good overwatch postion and heads up from a spotter I would engage at 1500 yards then trade out at 600 yards to the ar then at 100 yards switch out to the 870 pushing rifled slugs the reload with 00 buck. But thats a wet dream... sitting ontop of the pet shop looking down Washington st as it comes onto the island... but there are way too many variables and because I can reach out to 1000 yards Doesn't mean I should. One miss placed shot could comprise more than just my hidey hole. But I have some food for thought since I really never thought of my 30-30 in an offensive posture. But that why I like this site.

    I would suggest that if you are going to have scouts then instead of a go fast motorcycle a street legal dirt bike since it can handel difficult terrain better and it has a light and signals. As for a lead vehicle a wrecker or a duce and a half if you can acquire or "procure" one would be nice. Granted its big and loud but at 40 to 55 MPH not much is gonna stay in its way.... Kudos on the van idea but if we are in a TEOTWAWKI situation im gunning for a ambulance or a armored bank truck as a second vehicle a convoy. If you can set it up to where all the vehicles run the same fuel that will go a long way on saving resources. But this is just my humble opinion. Stay safe

    Introduction Thread

    Good morning to all I am ADRskew, currently serving active duty in the USCG. Saddly my prepping has not gone as fast as I would like due to PCS, deployment and finances. But I have a plan, a back up plan and a fall back plan. Finding this site and all of the fine personnel aboard has given me hope for the long haul. My current load out for tier 1 is what I carry everyday to work, a 3 color led light, 2 pocket knives both gerber, 2 lighters, firstaid kit. My tier 2 is a molle vest, ar15 with 7 Mags, 870 with 6 point CAR stock light and 29 rounds read ammo, alice ruck packed for 72+ hours. Its fairly standard and falls in line with the majority of the posts here. For my better half and youngins I had to go with the OTC 72 hour kits but they are being cleaned up. My tier 3 and BOB/BIB plans are OPSEC. As I can I will offer up advice or a Skewed way of looking at things and strive to be a productive member of this seemingly elite society. With respect Skew Semper Paratus

    BOB - 2 Kids 2 & Under

    MOLLE gear will go a long way to help attach gear to gear and with load bearing. Ergo baby carrier is awsome and mabey a moby wrap as a back up its not that big but a little awkward when first trying it. Also a jogging stroller since the larger tires will take off road better. We have a Schwinn side by side that will fit through most standard doorways, sun shade, rain fly and rolls really well. The under chassis storage will off set the amount you are carrying on your back. For your sidearm split the difference between the nine and 45apc and go with the 40 cal.

    Plan B?

    Sad to say my plan B is my were I work, it is reasonable secure, has food, water and and water treatment....weapons but they will take a little work to get to but in know whats there. Best of all its a seven minute walk from my house or any where in town for that matter.

    I actually have a 6' break down Hawaiian sling with a 6" extension and a break away double barb point in my BOB. It's a spear, a walking staff, a post for a tarp rent, break it down and I have 3 two foot whoopin sticks.
