I got a couple of cases of Federal Hi-Shok at the link below, good stuff. I hit them for a the same amount of Winchester Ranger 124 grain FMJ last month for $199 per case. You have to watch them for a good sale.

Whatever you do make sure you keep it a secret. I attended a DHS class in 09 and the topic was emergency supply procurement. It involves local LEO’s and other emergency responders locating private stock piles of “supplies”for "re-distribution".

I have no preparations. None. Nada. Zip. Not a bit.


No guns either. Nothing but sticks and rocks. I just hang out in this forum, because I'm lonely. And everybody here is friendly.

What was the name of the class? I've taken tons of them and never heard of such a thing.

I have never attempted to hide my identity online because it is impossible to hide from a pro, especially if he has server access. However I include that in my plans and I can tell you that nobody will benifit from my resources without my consent and I think that we all should, if it be poison pill or multiple locations or whatever you can think of.

As a pro with government resources, yes I can hunt people down, but I tell everyone to have an internet alias. It limits your exposure to the crazies.

Yes, I do have story. No I will not tell it.

I have been walking more. I walked 3 miles in my work (dress cloths) one day this week. After three miles, my feet hurt and I had a very sore wear spot on my balls. I will be working on the shoes, but I have no idea what to do about the wear spot on my balls.

The other item I have been working on is money... I opened a Roth IRA account at TD Ameritrade. It looks like I can put 5K in for 2011 until April 15th 2012.

I walked Sea World for 8 hours today and the body never gave me a bit of trouble. I was very pleased... hours of practice paid off!

No, just a longer harder walk than normal.

Try "monkey butt" powder. Very big in the cycling world, as is "chamois butter" you may honestly need to try different undies for hiking. I wear boxer/briefs most of the time, but for hiking and long walks, learned many a foot march ago that tighty whiteys were what worked for me.

Picked up a Marlin Model 60 from Wally World at $177 out the door. Even though I just got my 22 rilfe now, for the past year Ive been buying a 500 pack of 22LR ammo at the end of each month. I still think $20 a box now is a bargain compared to what it will go for during SHFT.

Well, this afternoon I installed the new SS Guiderod & 15 lb spring in the G19..

..removed the shok buff..

..and still could not get the PRIVI 147 gr to cycle!

Survival/Preparedness Forum


Lubed the weapon thoroughly, shot it stiff armed, with & without the AWC Abraxas..

..still would not cycle the slide!


The G19 cycled fine with the hotter lightweight ammo...such as the 115 & 124 gr...Corbon +P & similar.

But for maximum quiet...cycling the slide manually....the PRIVI could be very useful.


While at the private range...got a chance to see a new binary explosive target compound in action..

..very impressive!


Also got a chance to play with a bud's new toys...

..his new Trijicon ACOG/RMR combo...

Survival/Preparedness Forum


..and his new Thermal Monocular....a FLIR Recon M-24

..rugged, compact, submersible, & can be used in weapons targeting applications with IR Lasers.

Survival/Preparedness Forum

Survival/Preparedness Forum


This may be the year I take the plunge & finally get a thermal monocular!

What is that??....A Pocketable FLIR monocular???

We have FLIR at my station but the last time I saw the model the fire-side used it weighed about 10lbs and was about a one foot cube in size with a handle under it. I'm guessing a pocket version would easily be between $2K and $10K.

Sounds like the unit I've seen and played with. It was cool. In a pocketable monocular it would be badass. And I'm thinking a good pocketable would be closer to that $10k mark...if not over! But I never looked into them

This one is $6K & about 14 oz....IIRC


The FLIR Recon M-24 is the most compact unit I have used...IIRC

http://www.flircms.com/uploadedFiles...2012012010.pdf


I have been holding out for affordable color thermal..

..but with events staging worldwide (Iran/Israel is very concerning)

..affordable Mono Thermal beats waiting for affordable Color Thermal!

Same here. At this point in my life it'd just piss me off to waste $10K+ on something like that. Not that I couldn't but I'd rather break up that amount on a TON of other stuff. Hell, I could build a portable home, fill it with preps and buy the vehicle to pull it with for $10K!!

Good to know. Thanks for the info!

However, $6K for that is not worth it to me at this point in time. In the future I'd definitely love to have one!!!

Thanks

I don't even have a semi auto rifle beyond a couple .22lrs and an SKS yet.
