    I think it may be time

    Rayz, I have to agree with you as I'm investing in Beans, Bullets, and Bandages. Precious metals are good, but Im thinking short term. I will get my hands on gold and silver jewelry in due time.

    Capt bart I agree with you on the .50 cal, It is an amazing machine gun and the fucker "jammed" but the damn gunner kept riding the bolt forward which to me made it look like he wasn't charging it right, I know he knows better, so I assume the producers made this happen to add drama for entertainment purposes. He would charge the machine gun and would get no resistance when charging it, everytime i charged the .50 cal I had to put my ass into the motion. LOL

    Solution Used To Clean Water Bladders?

    That taste will go away within 2-3 complete uses. Fill with warm water, disconnect the bite valve and sit on it to empty it faster.

    TV show, documentaries, and movies

    I agree it everyone on the NATGEO having addicting and interesting shows. I recently caught "Inside Combat Rescue" about the AF PJ's conducting rescues in Afghan and its pretty gruesome stuff they deal with. The only thing I didn't like was that they always seem to make you feel like something is going to go wrong and its gonna get them all killed, like when the wounded are brought to the plane the narrator says shit to imply they are gonna die from suicide bombers, but the thing that got me was that they had their .50 Cal "malfunction" while in route to a hot location umm hello the entire country of Afghan is hot, I don't believe that gun would inoperable I just refuse to believe that shit happen twice.

    rain water collection

    It not that its illegal to catch rain water its that certain areas certain people (the rich) have water rights and if you take water that falls from the sky you are taking water from the people who own the right to water. Colorado is one of the states actually enforces such laws, I believe that the laws have not caught up with the times. Also its only illegal if you get caught Camouflaged collection system and good opsec should be enough to keep the law away.

    You Tube

    So I've noticed that many of the videos I've come across on youtube in regards to EDC and B.O.B. "reviews" some of these guys just go to walmart buy a bag and stuff it with camping stuff that they have never used in the field, much less tested around their yard. I dont knock them for gathering preps, but it bugs me that so many of these "reviewers" just shop at walmart, I just dont truly think their shit would last under heavy use. I have used the current GI folding shovel and broke the end handle while using it as a pick which is bummer I know, but I have dug like 3 fighting positions (for those that dont know its about 1 m-16 length by 1 m-16 width and deep enough to cover the tallest person in you hole, Im 5'9") I carried it over 7 years and used it many times. Can anyone really say the same about the walmart stocked folding shovel? Also yesterday I found a water bottle at a thrift store for .75 cents, a thermos container $1, an 8" pouch .50 cents, and a plastic case .50 cent for a total of $2.75. the bottles alone can cost $5 and $10 respectively in new condition, but there were really clean and metal is smooth and dent free. Im just trying to say these fools on youtube claim to be on a budget buying shit at walmart and not really making there dollar stretch. I also hate Walmart but their stock and prices are very tempting.

    Kill Your Television!!

    I stopped paying for cable way over 2 years ago, and just started streaming on my macbook and xbox 360 HULU, Netflix, and Project-free.tv <--- this one is free to stream. It was a very smart decision and Im glad I made it.

    TV show, documentaries, and movies

    I watched a PBS documentary "Battle for Haiti" which followed a 7 man team of police man who searched for escaped prisoners from the prison that was damaged during the 2011 earthquake and held 4,500 prisoners. They started operating around the tent cities and raped women, girls, boys and committed other crimes as usual. It was shocking how crazy things get after social order is collapsed and how helpless some people can be.
  13. Im sure these "cops" just nag and nag until they get in your home. I personally would never let them into my home and I don't know of anyone who would happen to keep their guns in plain view for anyone to see, because it just doesn't make sense. I like how the one person never opened the door or made any contact the they simply left empty handed.
  14. this is interesting. "The state Senate agreed March 7 to expand the seizure program using $24 million in surplus funds from fees that gun dealers charge buyers for background checks." this is the biggest shit sandwich I have ever been presented with. I mean I pay all type of fees to purchase firearms and they use the money to fund gun grabbing? And how in the hell is there a "surplus" of money California is in massive debt. They confiscate guns and ammo? then destroy them they should at least try and let you sell them of gift them to relatives.

    3 days? Gee ... Ya Think?

    You know I was thinking the same thing this morning when I was startled by the earthquake luckily it didn't last long at all (that's what she said), but I was thinking about stocking up on some supplies incase there was more or bigger aftershocks. I did fill up my truck and a few gas cans just in case. I picture the city of Los Angeles would turn into a war zone quick and in a hurry.

    Vehicle kit

    I have an older truck 1969 Chevrolet Truck and I carry a few things to mostly make small road side repairs, I have roadside help through my insurance so I can always count on a low cost tow, gas, and jump start options. I still carry the following -Jumper cables -5 gallon gas container locked with a bicycle cable lock in the truck bed(with 3 gallon I don't keep it full). -Road Flares -tire plug kit -some hand tools -spare fuses and wire connectors -Flashlight and extra batteries -gallon of water and P.O.L.'s pretty much if I cant fix it on the side of the road I will call for a tow truck.

    The long awaited return

    Just to clarify It's Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) they can still be destroyed and disabled. The MRAP's are designed to keep the occupants safe and alive and they work very well.

    what do you carry when recreational boating/fishing?

    I just remembered I carry Green and Red Glow sticks to tape to the bow incase my bow lights go out for some reason. Catfish Hunter I'm gonna find a way to make a float for the anchor line I like the idea of ditching the anchor momentarily.
