  Hand cranked radios.
Posted by: kirgi08 - 08-31-2015, 02:47 AM - Forum: Communications - Replies (1)

I like the eton arc models,the ARC FRX3 is a decent choice.They ain't perfect but they don't cost what a Kenwood does.The Ambient Weather WR111b is my "wish" unit.We have scanners and the such,what I want is the solar/outlet type usage.They are upgradeable and fairly stout.Midrange is the Grundig S450DLX,a $100 on prime.Above the ARC model,below the AW is the Kaito Electronics KA500BLK.It's highly versatile,I haven't handled one so I really don't know about quality.It does have the main thing I want in this type gear,AC/Battery/Solar/Computer.This is a essential factor for me.The cost is rt at $80/varies between sites,I may roll the dice and get one.

Being able to hear what's going on around you is paramount,in a "situation" info is king.As an aside,I'd print off yer local LEOs "10" codes.It may take awhile to learn them but it's worthwhile.Funny story,when I was still otr an FTO friend of mine had a newb riding for training.He asked me about 20 different "10" codes and I knew them all.He told his rook If a long haired hippy can learn them so can she.I'm a long haired hippy type that folk don't even notice.'08.

Thumbs Up Rate a thread or member

Want everyone to be familiar with these features of the board.  If you read the post of another member that you particularly like then you can 'rate' it.  It's a way to say thanks for the post as it was of value to you.  If you look at the bottom of anyone's post you'll see several tabs.  On of them on the bottom left has a 'thumbs up' and says 'Rate'.  Click on that and you'll have a pop up window that allows you to give a positive (or negative) rating.  It also allows the opportunity to tell the member why you rated them if you want to do so.  After you rate them just click the X and proceed.  Just a nice way of saying thanks to other members.  The 'Reputation' appears in the person's posts on the upper right.

You can also rate an entire thread.  In the upper right of the OP (original post) of the thread you'll see a bunch up stars.  Click on the one which reflects your rating and the thread is now rated.  Gives other members the opportunity to quickly see threads that contains good information.

Any questions please let me know.   Smile

  Winchester Model 1902 - .22 rifle
Posted by: David - 08-29-2015, 11:12 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (3)

I mentioned in another thread a while back that my grandfather had passed on to me a small .22 single shot rifle that he had used as a boy on the farm.  I got curious as I'd never really looked into it before.  It's been on the top shelf of my closet for years so I got the ladder and took it down.  It's marked on the top of the barrel and is a Winchester Model 1902.  It's a single shot, bolt action rifle that shots 22 long and short.  

Here's a stock pic of what they look like:

The stock is a bit darker and knicked up bit with a crack under the barrel portion.  Probably hasn't been fired in untold decades.  Kinda cool.

  Hunting Season
Posted by: JRSC - 08-29-2015, 12:55 AM - Forum: Camping, hiking, fishing, hunting & trapping - Replies (64)

It's about that time of year I start getting giddy as a school girl. The feeling of late summer is kicking in and I can feel a hint of fall in the air. Next Saturday is dove season. I'm chomping at the bit. Jase Robertson said "dove is the filet mignon of the sky." And I agree with him. In another month small game and deer season will be here. 

In addition to deer I'm going for rabbit, squirrel and may try some duck hunting this season if I can find the time. 

Hunters, what are yall going for this season? If your seasons already open what have you got? Feel free to post pics and share some recipes.

  A moment of silence is just that.

Isn't it about time we humbled ourselves and cried out to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? Is it Guns? Is it Drugs? Is it Racism? Is it Mental Health? Really? A moment of silence? Are you kidding me? I am the worst in need of humbleness and crying out to God.

Video Interesting Fire Starting Method
Posted by: JRSC - 08-28-2015, 01:32 AM - Forum: Fire - Replies (8)

This method is very labor intensive at first. But after you have the hearth board made you're good to go for a great many fires to come. I really like this way because if you are ever in a survival situation (without lighters or any other ignition source) this will save you time, calories, undue stress and fatigue.

Question Customized sheath
Posted by: David - 08-27-2015, 01:34 PM - Forum: Packs and Gear - Replies (2)

First off, what is your favorite fixed blade knife?  Secondly, have you done anything with the sheath itself like modifications?  I have a couple of the BG Ultimate Survival knives (which are actually decent knives) and one BG's Ultimate Pro I bought for my son a couple of years ago (which also is a decent knife).  One of the things I like about them is they have a whistle, sharpener and ferro rod right in the sheath.  Now the whistle isn't going to be heard for 20 miles, but it works and beats screaming for hours.  The ferro rods work fine and the sharpeners work.

My fixed blade knife is the Gerber LMF II.  The sheath has a built in sharpener but that's about it.  So far I've duct taped a very small (last resort) ferro rod to the back inside.  But I just bought the same type of ferro rod that comes with the BG knife and it should fit right on top of the sheath inserted into the sharpener (and fastened with duct tape or Velcro wrap).  Thinking it would be a good idea to add a whistle and small micro light as well but need to find one I really like.  I'll post a pick when the add-ons arrive and I've done it.

Anyone else pimp out a sheath?  If so, what did you do and pics always welcome
