I guess this air rifle would be out of the question then? www.quackenbushairguns.com...

My dear old dad wants one of these in the worst way. But the air rifle you bought your son just moved to my Xmas list!!

We planted potatoes, garlic and chives today. Also got a chamber insert for my 7.62x51 that allows it to fire .32 ACP. I had to spend a couple of hours dressing it down with an electric drill and stone to fit the chamber. Acted as a laborer for my wife also.

Getting my gas mask ready for work tomorrow. I don't see any immediate reason for needing it but my job could see me driving (hopefully) through the G20 protests over the next few days.

If some idiot decides to incite gas dispersal I wish to be ready.

Now thats summat I'd have never thought of...would it be pocket-portable as part of EDC kit?

I'm guessing used rail-card would be equally useful. If it was small enough it could happily fit into a pocket and be forgotten about. The uses are almost endless.

Easily small enough to stick in your pocket

Just bought another AR today, its a Chinese made SMK model 97 that uses twin CO2 gas bulbs to power it, its a lot lighter than the Lightening, has a longer barrel to get to power up, bolt action, easy to use, and of course the judicous use of a hacksaw could turn it into a pocket carbine / pistol that still has full power. 3/4 inch groups at 25 yards puts it on a par with the lightening. Only £99 to buty as well. That Quackenbush is positively scary !!

I possess no knowledge about anything gun/rifle but I was chatting yesterday with an old friend staying with me. Among all the chat about making snare knots and which knife to use he mentioned air-rifles.

Apparently on some you can insert some type of device down the barrel and turn a "screw" which effectively ups the power above the legal "12" limit.

Obviously, even if I knew what I was talking about I couldn't condone the action, however it might be useful in case of zombies.

Just watched a pretty gritty and powerful film called the Vanguard.

An indie Brit movie made last year.
Old school, like a mad max / omega man genre.

Touches on many SitX themes and subjects.

Survivalism, microchipping, population reduction and genetic tampering / brainwashing to make more lethal soldiers.

If you're anti-establishment you'll probably like this film

We have two air rifles, a BSA .177 @ 700fps and a pump up .22 that will do about 800fps with 8 pumps. Even at these velocities they are effective hunting guns for small game. The first rabbit my son ever took was with the .177 at about 40 yards. I use them to get rid of vermin around the house so as to not upset the people next door.

One project that I have thought about but taken no action on is to take a paint ball gun and modify it to shoot bolts.

I suppose you could sleeve a .25 or .22 with a .177 insert barrel and gain a bit of power from that, alternatively you can fit a theoben 177 gas strut to a .22 air rifle which boosts its power a bit also.

I probably am, and I did. The first 30 minutes or so was the most useful although it was nice to see that there is a little cover around one of my current Bug Out Routes.

Definitely indie-Brit.

Sounds like a cool movie. I'll have to keep my eyes open for it. I wonder if NetFlix has it?

I finished some gun related projects yesterday.

After sweating and nervously prepping my Rem 700, I glas bedd'd the action. It worked like a charm, although some of the glas came out in unexpected places. I was able to remove it before the stuff became like steel. Now my 700 is free floated and glas bedded. I'll mount the scope thjis week and hopefully be able to sight it in this coming weekend.

I did some trigger work on the 700 and brought it down from ovcer6 to about 3.5-4. It is a sweet trigger now.

The front sight on my MK3 Hunter was also completed yesterday. It looks really good. My next work on this one is some thumb rest target grips and trigger work. The pull on this one is about 6 lbs, and I should be able to get it to 2.5-3.

I like the idea that one poster said with wrapping duct tape on old credit cards. Nice way to carry it. I'll definitely root some up and start wrapping. That reminds me, I need some more "100 mph duct tape"

This stuff isn't like regular duct tape, it's the mil version and is the gnarliest stuff going.

OK folks I have to ask, Why the air guns? I understand squirrel /bird / rabbit hunting but I can see no other reason for it other than maybe practice. I think your money would be much better spent on a wrist-rocket type slingshot. You can conceal it in a shirt pocket, and ammo is free. I'm not sure of velocity or force on these things, I do know I wouldn't want to be shot with one. They are cheap too. Just a thought for those of you that can't own guns.

Part of me is thinking the same thing.

I've got 2 crossbows and a catapult (slingshot). Do I really need to include my air-rifle into the arsenal I take out with me.
Three weapons is enough really.
With enough food stored and a major disaster I'd probably be able to aquire an air-rifle if the SitX was a perpetual one.

For all that they are highly accurate for short to medium range, and the ammo is tiny too. So for small game it is brilliant and you'll be able to drop targets like the wind with practice.
Using a crossbow for a rabbit (a bloody small target) is a bit of overkill. And a catapult isn't a precision weapon (albeit fairly accurate) so... the air-rifle still has its place...

My 550 paracord arrived.

Only 100ft but it's been one of the holes in my BOB for a long time.

I think most of them are from the UK where guns are outlawed.
