Did a bugout run over night. My gear, the weight of the bags all seemed ok. Pretty uneventful, came home a lil tired.
Talked to my best friend about all kinds of reasons to have a BOB and he seems interested.
Today I ordered some ammo online, and bought some at walmart.
Now i am heading to bed. Since I have to get up early for my new job (start tomorrow)
Later folks

Staying in bed. My physio did a number on my shoulder yesterday. Take heed people, slouching and driving is bad.

Funnily enough we did find out that walking around with a back-pack puts it in a better position. More bug out practice I feel...

Well it is in common with the way the world is being run.

Help no one, don't even mention what seeds you stock, or
what you do for shelter or things that are not compromising.

I get the point of not mentioning things that might get you in trouble,
or might draw attention that would best be avoided, but... the
common sense down to earth helpful things being withheld is
just saying you don't care to help anyone but yourself.

That is largely why we are where we are today in the world.

We have a bunch of lying selfish power hungry freaks running
the world, and we wonder why things suck.

It's been a little slow here at work so I decided to peruse a catalog from Midway and put together a small order for a few odds and ends to help me bring some neglected .22's back to speed.

One is a 70+ yo Winchester that was my Grand Fathers. Now Grandpa knew what survival was about.

My Grandpa from the age of 14 became the head of house for the six brothers and sisters. This .22 put meat on the table and his abilities fishing and gardening rounded out things.

So now this gun shoots a tad to the left, about 3" at 50yds. I'm using some Kriol to seep into the dovetail sight and will tap it to try and bring it back true.


If the barrel has a lot of wear on it your better off replacing the barrel.

2nd line.

Yes, my grandfathers taught me a lot of the old ways when I was
raised mostly by them while my single mother worked and went to
college for almost a decade.

I think this uniquely helped me as both of them lived thru the depression.

Good Luck to you all !

I stopped by one of my clients and verified his backup solution
was working, and fine tuned his gfx capture tool with his color
printer.

Today I ordered PC parts for a member of ATS for their computer that
took some damage from a storm not too long ago.

I went and met a friend at his house as his dad rolled into town
and we all sat down and talked about the country falling apart,
and what that will mean for a lot of ppl and some of the likely
scenarios.

I did some walking and some shopping for some long term food
for cheap and came home and checked ATS, lol.

I'd say most of my big plans I had done many months ago, and
I am geared towards long term total collapse survival vs. short
term stay in the city survival.

I have covered my plans somewhat in other places on this board.

Right now the most likely Sit-x in my view is total economic collapse
as Russia, China, and other push for dumping the dollar as the
world's reserve currency.

Some OPEC countries already buy and sell oil in Euros now.

As the dollar becomes tied only to massive debt, and very little
real production from this country it will sink like a stone.

The derivatives disaster has not even 10% unfolded yet.

When the full implications of the 100's of Trillion in theft come to
bear on the country it will fold like a cheap wallet.

Warren Buffet's story about it here about a year ago:

Good Luck to you all !

Yeah a faraday cage works for EMP shielding as long as there are no
sizable holes.

A full size faraday cage can viewed in "Enemy of the State" the movie.

Supposedly a few layers of spaced and crinkled aluminum foil will work
as well and it does not need to be grounded.

There is a lot of good info on the net about this.

I still think our biggest threat is Economic collapse, martial law,
revolution, civil war, and a greater depression.

Some adventurous countries might also take advantage of this
moment of weakness as well.

Also our debtors may be offered things within our country in exchange
for what we owe them.

If you find yourself yelling "Our politicians would never sell us out",
then try saying that to a mirror 10 times and see if you can keep
from looking away or feeling a deep sense of dread.

They'd sell us all down the river as long as they can cling to some
modicum of power.

The port of Long Beach is already under full control of COSCO(China).

Good Luck to you all !

The barrel tuerned out to be in fine shape. It took a while to get the 60-70 yrs of gunk out, and now the land are crisp and clean. I might have to recrown the barrel, but that's not a big deal on this gun.

Yesterday I continued to work on my main rifle. This evening I'll tape the stock and action and trigger to prepare it for glass bedding.

Had some neighbors over for dinner last night. We tried to keep the conversation light and away from the issues of whats goin on in the world.

I found a source for parts that I'll need to check out. McMaster Carr It seems that they have a huge inventory of parts and stuff for the home workshop. I'm in need of some blank steel rods to make into 'pins' instead of buying "gunsmithing" pins.

If you had a smack-on-the-limit 1000fps air-rifle...what would be the most effective volatile to accidentally get in the piston chamber to unintentionally create a dieselling effect?

Up to mischief there Citizen?
Are you seeking to have the rifle emulate an incendiary device perhaps!!?


I'm looking at the review for NRs wonder rifle here:

www.reviewcentre.com...

Damn, I want one now!


Pricey at £400 odd quid though...



posted on Mar, 27 2009 @ 01:56 AM

True dat. £400 is a bit excessive for a glorified pea shooter.


I'm sure the real thing would be a little cheaper.

I may struggle convincing the good lady I want a crossbow, let alone a firearm.

A light oil like three in one is more volatile than some heavy gun oils.But apparently the way to get extra out of them is to fit a Theoben Gas Strut conversion to them. I Fancy an Air Arms S410 TDR dont suppose anyone wants to treat me ?

NOTE very closely the detachable stock, which in my mind equates to a full power pistol !!!!!! if it will work without the stock that is.

Now if you want a really neat tactical carbine sized full power multi shot air rifle with synthetic stock, that also takes down ( thats all the boxes ticked) go to www.deben.com and look at the FX Verminator.
