  1. they'd better be learning hand to hande, working out, gun handling, dryfiring and studying survival subjects on the kindle reader, grinding grain, checking the nets and traps, etc. What makes you "think" that there will BE any leisure time?
  2. a lot depends on what the critter has been eating. Rat probably tastes a lot better than squirrel that's been eating hedgeballs.
  3. make a world of difference. So does the polypro bag that i put between the "breathable" and heavy-duty mylar bags. The soft armor boxer shorts and vest help quite a bit as insulation from the ground as well as padding on hard surfaces. Now I'm good down to 20f, no problem in the hammock, or on the ground if there's any debris for padding/insulation. If I had better circulation in my legs, or if i'd use a Dakota fire pit to heat rocks and water bottles, i could go 10F colder. But then need the super shelter and a fire all night, for colder temps. If have several pits and use them all night to heat rocks, those rocks will warm you most of the next day, placed under your hammock, or your raised wooden bed. Thus, no smoke for enemies to see. The later afternoons are typically 15F or more warmer than late at night, and you can usually get away with a Dakota pit fire a bit before dusk, since they'd have to try to find you in the dark. That is, if you've got night sights and night vision. :-) Anyone moving in that cold is going to crunch snow or frozen twigs. So the guy who's holding still is a lot more likely to be the one who detects the enemy first.
  4. given the 80 gr VLD bullet, the 223 AR's have OWNED the 600 yd matches for 20 years now, beating 308 quite consistantly. But basically, it's dumb as hell to not have suppressor on rifle. 22" 308 and 8" of can results in a bipod only clunk. 14.5" of M4 barrel and 7.5" of can results in a still handy rifle, and it will reach 1/4 mile just fine. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=AR15+sbr+223+firing+at+long+range
  5. you had spotter shots and windflags to center that group. group means nothing if the center of the group is way off the mark, and it can be, easily, in wind or mirage, and there's no real practicing for either one. There's no standards to apply. wind gusts and mirage floats in varying amounts. animals dont shoot back, either.
  6. wind charts show that a mere 10mph breeze takes a 308 bullet 10" off-target at a mere 300m. Winds often gust and lull. So you aim at one side of the guy, the wind gusts or lulls and you miss to the other side. :-) or it's hot and mirage drifts the image just as much. Or he's head on prone to you and the up and downhill angle makes you miss, or he's dodging, using cover, and you can't gauge either his direction or his speed, you lack hearing protection and you're ducking incoming fire and fragments.
  7. He'll probably bring to you a contagious disease.. I'd rather just not have a door for anyone to knock upon. All above ground buildings will be searched, repeatedly, by armed, desperate men if shtf. However, a concealed hole in the ground, in the wooded hills around your local water source, will not, if you have enough sense to stay in it during daylight hours.
  8. I'm a month late, but I'd wish the Obamas, Clintons, Holder, Lerner, Lynch, entire DNC and State Dept, and half of DOJ , half of congress,about 1/4 of the Republicans and 4 of the supremes to be living on death row
  9. Cause the last time the Isrealites listened to a bush, they spent 40 years wandering in the wilderness.
  10. "you said I'd win!" Satan to HIllary " You said you had a soul"
  11. Fowler, winner of Alone TV show season 3, has a yt vid testing some little half assed survival kit, to help when you fall thru the ice. He did a full body immersion into water where he'd broken the ice. Then he ran for 10 minutes to someplace that he could start a fire, and took another 5 minutes to get a fire going and wrap one of those worthless little, tear if you sneeze on them space blankets. . EFF that bs! If you get wet in such conditions, you need to be out of those clothes and inside a REAL space blanket-bag, in 1 minute or less, or you're highly likely to be unable to help yourself, due to shivering and numbing of your hands. THEN worry about getting a fire going, donning dry clothes (IF you have any with you) polypro long johns dont GET wet, so probably either leave those on (if already wearing them, of course) or don them if not. Might be necessary, tho, to remove them, dry yourself and then don them again. That's one of the reasons why the standard sized space blanket, 5x7ft, is not big enough, unless you're of quite small stature. I'm 6 ft and 220 lbs and such a blanket, folded lengthwise, is 6" too narrow to close around my arms/shoulders. with the 7x8 bag, there's room to do crunches, knee lifts, etc, so as to generate metabolic heat, which also helps to dry you, if you didn't have a bandana to do that job. It's best to not bring water into the mylar bag with you, if you can possibly avoid it. After a couple of hours, the impermeability of the normal type of mylar means that you'll have condensation problems. The "inside" mylar bag of my system is supposedly more "breathable". My testing so far seems to bear that out, but the same claim is made for tyvek and I wore tyvek coveralls for many days in S Cal, and they surely do retain body heat and moisture (quite badly). when you are working in such heat and humidity. The full moon suits that i sometimes had to wear (hydroblasting on oil drilling sites) would have a pint of water in each boot at the end of the day. Sucked really hard. If it stays cold enough, long enough here, I might get to also test a tyvek coverall for how much additional warmth it provides. I doubt that it will make the grade into my system, tho, cause it's not worth much for the warmer parts of the year, and it's fairly bulky, altho not much weight. Be good to have one in the van, tho.
  12. kids only. Adults, tough shit, should have taken care of it themselves.
  13. and how will you know the diff, mr Crystal ball?
  14. EFF the stove and save the time and calories spent bucking logs or splitting wood
  15. you are many times more likely to not GET to any longarm in time than you are for your ccw pistol to not suffice. Most of the time, they flee at the sight of your gun, and misses have changed a lot of minds, too. If you have the 10 seconds or so to run and get any gun, why not just charge the guy and rip off his head? What makes you think that you wont be getting shot in the back 4x per second as you try to do this?
