  Got a new light for Father's day
Posted by: bmyers - 2 hours ago - Forum: Lighting - No Replies

For those that know me, it is no surprise that I got a new flashlight for Father's Day.


I have played around with it in the house, but the claim to fame for this light is the throw on it. I'm hoping this weekend to get it out and give it a try.


A review of the light I found on YouTube.

  Freedom Munitions Files Bankruptcy Petition
Posted by: bmyers - 06-12-2018, 02:23 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (5)

Wasn't sure where to post this:

According to a public filing in Nevada, Freedom Munitions and its parent company Howell Munitions, recently petitioned the court for bankruptcy protection. Information subitted to TFB from several anonymous sources pointed to two cases outlined at inforuptcy.com, showing filing dates of 6/8/2018 and 6/11/2018. Information is slim at the moment, but the court information states that both Freedom Munitions’ assets and liabilities lays somewhere between $10M and $50M.
I hate to see this because I order a lot of ammo from them. I have noticed lately that they have been out of stock on a lot of their ammo, I guess this explains it.

  My learning curve
Posted by: bdcochran - 06-11-2018, 11:49 PM - Forum: Body Building & Physique Training - Replies (1)

60 years ago, I presented myself to a relative who was a cardiac surgeon and asked for some exercises, so he handed me the Canadian Army program.  A lot of research has gone on since that time.

Between Kaiser physical therapy/my own research, I ended up with over an hour of exercises a day that basically relied upon body weight, could be done outside on a mat.  Every day.  My research stumbled across an emergency room physician who had done weight lifting in medical school.  He said that a person didn't need to work out every day with weights.

Well, knowing that specific exercises don't deal will all parts of the body, I went into Kaiser therapy in January.  Received a simple exercise that took 5 months to restore my left arm.  Went in a few days ago again for an exercise to deal with the left leg.  I am old enough to be the therapist's father.  He said that I was stronger than he, and gave me 4 exercises to work into my routine.  He was/is right.  They were painful at first.

The bottom line is that you have to have an open mind and obtain professional advice from time to time.

Today, I started working out on a solid, portable, home made black iron chinning bar anchored by 4 50 pound bags of play sand.  How many chinups can I do?  NOne.  And I didn't expect to be able to do any.  That is a specific exercise of muscle groups that is not done daily in our society.  So, I start by simply hanging on the cross bar.  It will take time to build up the muscular strength to be able to do a simple chin up.  What is my goal?  To be able to do a series of overhand and underhand chinups very slowly - no twisting of the body/no swaying/no huffing and puffing. S   Some day, I hope to be able to do them with the legs at a 90 degrees to the torso.  That would be great!

  Single Stack Carry poll
Posted by: David - 06-11-2018, 03:16 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (4)

I've started this same poll on other boards as I want to get a good sampling and not have it biased based on the location of the poll.

Simply put in terms of reliability, function, price, capacity, carry etc., what would you choose to EDC out of the three available choices.  Also, some folks may prefer a choice that isn't listed, please participate in the Single Stack Carry Thread in this section with your choice and thoughts.

Thank you.

  Glock G33, Gen4, another winner.
Posted by: TN.Frank - 06-10-2018, 07:03 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (2)

This little G33 is a real Pocket Size Power House and I think another winner from Glock in 357 Sig. Totally love rockin' the Sig ctg., gives me the power level I'm looking for in a handgun that's still controllable and easy to carry. Anyway, Enjoy.

  The pool is redone!
Posted by: Bob - 06-09-2018, 01:44 PM - Forum: Water - Replies (2)

15,000 of cool crisp clean clear water.  Mostly, it's for swimming.  But in a pinch - completely drinkable.

Also a new Grill, and refreshed the Propane.  So - Grill, Turkey Cooker, three cans of propane, and 15000 gals.

That doesn't count bottled and frozen !L's and Katadyn Filter and Lifestarws and Aquamira tabs.  Oh yeah - it rains fairly frequently!

So, water - Check!

  Knife making?

Making a knife from scratch, Rambo style, has been on my bucket list before forged in fire was on TV. Has anyone ever done it?

  Go to prayer meeting and attacked
Posted by: bmyers - 06-04-2018, 10:58 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)


Violence broke out in downtown Portland, Oregon, on Sunday as Antifa activists stormed a Patriot Prayer rally — about a year after similar dueling rallies triggered bloody fights and arrests.

Some protesters on Sunday hurled bottles and fireworks at police officers while others were caught with knives and other weapons, Portland Police tweeted. Officials encouraged people to get out of the immediate area "for their safety."

Guatemala had a major eruption.


Will the next one be somewhere in the continental US?
