  1. Diamond 25, Maybe you could start a post on Non-firearm defense ideas!
  2. Another good article on "Pros" of revolvers: http://www.personaldefenseworld.com/2017/08/revolvers-new-shooters/#revolvers-1-2
  3. Here's a really balanced article that covers all kinds of firearm choices for real world homesteading. Great "Lessons Learned" and "Pros and Cons" rundowns. Might save someone a lot of money, too! Great advice on not drawing unessesary attention to oneself (read and you will catch it). Also, lessons for folks with fewer choices on firearms due to local laws. I agree (in general) that the AR15 in .223/5.56 is not good primarily for hunting and an AR10 in .308 is a preferred choice for food hunting. However, smaller wild pigs are an excellent food source. The .223 is an affordable practice and hunting caliber for smaller pigs, raccoons, coyotes, etc.. It doesn't damage as much meat as a .308 would and costs much less to purchase. Same with .22LR. It's appropriate for some situations and affordable. If military style weapons aren't an option for you, this is a good reference: http://www.thesurvivalistblog.net/gun-choice-mistake/
  4. We strayed off topic again.
  5. Another good article on the subject: http://tacticalintelligence.net/blog/pistol-vs-revolver-which-is-the-better-bug-out-gun.htm
  6. Great video on an affordable, classic revolver:
  7. Sorry! I went back and read the latest comments. I wasn't trying to be insensitive with the "Back on target" comment. It came back to me as "blunt", at least. I think Thomas was right. We can stay on topic and still discuss our opinions by starting a new post rather than straying off subject. I was about to ask to leave the forum because of the "distractions" on topic posts. But, having read all of your comments (slower), I applaud everyone's maturity and willingness to talk to each other. That's how families succeed. Zachmars, Dan Seven, Thomas. Keep on teaching!
  8. "Watching trends in the news (over time) makes me wonder if prepping for lawlessness should be my highest priority. It would encompass many skills. How can we best tailor preps to our unique environment and then prepare for daily life?" Cyber security tips? Home security tips? Situational awareness tips? Self-defense tips?
  9. Freeze dried, canned, or ?

    Good info. I would stock both. The price of freeze dried foods is coming down, these days. Lots of sale items. The posted shelf life is longer than cans and MREs. Much less weight (still need water). MREs are relatively expensive, and many require water, too. But, for a backpack trip, they are hard to beat! I think you could put together a pretty good "MRE" out of dehydrated foods with the current varieties available. But, you would need a heat source and container(s) for cooking. Even small sizes of canned goods would work!
  10. Ammo philosophy

  11. "Law and order in their traditional sense."
  12. Ammo philosophy

    Aquinas, I caught the black powder bug a few years ago. Our great grandads we're not under-gunned! Tell me about your rifle! Pics!
