  1. Right back atcha buddy!
  2. Took my 5-year-old out in the woods today and we had a great time building a little lean-to shelter! He collected most of the evergreen boughs himself and had a blast putting them on the branch framework. Now he keeps bugging me to go out and go camping in it!
  3. Well, I finally got one - I've been searching for one of these for pretty much my entire adult life (though my wife would argue I have yet to grow up.) This is a .22 LR 4" barreled S&W Model 18 from the late '60s. I've had a 6" barreled S&W K-22 since I was 21, but the 6" barrel has always been better suited to target use over field use. I've been trying lots of different guns for field sidearms - Ruger MKI / MKII, Browning Buck Mark, the aforementioned K-22 - but I always just came back to the conclusion that I really just wanted a 4" .22 Smith & Wesson revolver. Now I've got one - and I don't think I'll ever step foot in the woods again without it on my side.
  4. Wally, as far as illuminuation goes, give me a good flashlight or solar powered lantern like a Hybridlight PUC ANYDAY over candles. However, if you're relying on the light as a small source of heat, you'll do far better with the candle. You could probably heat the inside of a pickup truck cab with a big multi-wick candle enough to keep you from freezing to death . Just gotta crack a window for carbon monoxide evacuation.
  5. I wouldn't give anyone under 16 a real high-quality knife - it's likely to be lost or inappropriately used and broken. I didn't have REALLY nice pocketknives until my 30s, to tell you the truth. My Dad gave my brother and I some Buck lock-blade folders, and they worked great or what we needed them to do (namely, whittle sticks and chop up weird bugs). He also gave us Barlow knives, but the lock of lock left me with some nice scars on my fingers.
  6. I was admittedly happy to hear this too. Due Process cannot be circumvented, especially for political profit on either side of the aisle.
  7. I may have had too much homemade pizza and a couple too many PBRs....
  8. Wally, it has look look somewhat "professional" since it's a company car. Maybe a soft briefcase?
  9. For the few people who still visit - I got a new job that will require my travelling all over New England (sadly, even into Massachusetts). I have been provided a nice Subaru Outback as a company car. However, since I am using a company car, and will often carry potential customers to jobsites and will need to carry samples, having a full-sized bug-out-bag like I have in my personal daily driver just won't fly. Therefore, I'll need to set up a minimalist kit to keep with me. I don't want to attract attention or have people break into my car to get this bag; any suggestions on a good durable bag (doesn't have to be a backpack) that won't raise eyebrows? Wanted to ask youse guys on here first before I shopped around. Opinions? Thanks!
  10. Thank you, sir! Hope Snake is well - not like him to stay quiet for so long!
  11. Nope, no issues here. I think there are security updates that should happen on this forum, I'll check it out.
  12. I'm around, kid heading off to college and I'm starting a new job, plus renovating my house. Never enough time!
  13. Thanks Wally! The SurvivalCache spat must have been before my time. What was everyone's beef?
  14. Pardon my ignorance, but what's the backstory with Dan's Depot?
  15. Yep, Mossberg gave the finger to Dick's too.
