Using a lot of gas is an issue when backpacking, do you risk running out of gas or carry more weight. Also, how well does it work in cold conditions.
Holy COW! For 8 bucks and free shipping just buy the darn thing and find out!

I have one of these. I do cold weather camping and canister stoves don't work well below 32 degrees but this one does.

glock 4 gun range bag
glock armorers tool
glock sign
glock hat

$54


going on right now. Site updated with different deal every day.


Edit... just priced all that out and it's better to just buy everything but the hat you'll never wear and save even more money.

There are canisters with higher percentage of propane (max 20% usually) that you should look for if you are using it in cold weather. The issue is that during cold weather the propane gets used but because of the cold the other 80 percent does not get used.

Propane boils at -43 F (-40 C)

Butane boiling at 31 F (0.5 C)

Isobutane boils at 11 F (-12 C)

I don't know how but, the Soto Micro Regulator Stove does work better in cold weather than other stoves.

Remington 870 and 1100 12 ga barrels

I have new 870 and 1100 barrels that I am selling from inventory. A picture of 4 of the 870 barrels are posted in the For Sale section. Have had time to indicate the prices on two of them. I will now post a photograph in the For sale section of Remington 1100 12 ga barrels. Many of the barrels have been worked upon by Hans Vang of Vang Comp.

One trick when its cold is to put the fuel canister in your sleeping bag at night and in a pocket under your down layer during the day (for a little while before you want to cook). This keeps the fuel warm and it will function better.

Magzine deals I've found recently:

AR-15 magazines, teflon coated both inside & out, with MagPul followers installed. Ten pack is $85 plus shipping - two ten packs came out to $183.80 total, or $9.19 each including shipping costs:

http://dsgarms.com/ProductInfo/MA-02DSGB10A.aspx

I've never dealt with DSG before, but checked around on arfcom and they and these magazines both got very good reviews. They're apparently D&H magazines (which I've used in the past and are very good), just with DSG's name stamped on the floorplate instead.


Glock factory mags - Standard capacity for $18.99 - http://www.obxammo.com/TODAYS-HOT-IT...S-GLOCKMAG.htm Haven't ordered any yet, but thought I'd pass it on.

They also have glock factory extended magazines for $29.99 (9mm 33-round, and .40s&W 22-round).

Yes.

The crimpers are great at adjusting laser beams on sharks too!

great used leathermen and knives

bouldercitynv


rapsanjams rapsanjams

These sites sell tsa confiscated tools, knives. Listed on ebay. I have purchased dozens of the items at 1/3 to 1/2 of the retail prices. Today, I picked up another couple of benchmade knives.

I give the tools and knives as gifts to relatives. I want to make sure that they will have them in the car, at home and at the office, if working. If shtf and I happen to be nearby, then I have backup items already in place.

To go with the new ar mags, www.force-products.com has good 5.11 "stacked double" four-mag carriers for $13.99; cheaper than I've seen anywhere. Can be had in black or "dark earth" which I already have (and which looks suspiciously like "tan" to me ).

Typically these run $24-$30, or at least used to.

thats the same MSS i use in my bag. if you live closer to an army base, they are considerably cheaper. i got mine by purchasing a marine corps combat tent at an auction for $6 and then trading that for the MSS. can find them all day long here for 100-125.

it is a good system though, and if you dont have any other resource, i'd say its definately worth the money.

Shipping was $16.46 - came out to $58.43 total for three, or $19.48 apiece with shipping factored in. Most places I found them run $10 or so higher apiece once shipping is applied.

I really like this particular pouch and discovered it completely by accident when some online store had them on special for something like $8 a while back. At the time, I ordered just one out of curiosity & now wish I'd ordered more at that price...
