  The Power Of a Vote
Posted by: JRSC - 01-09-2016, 03:06 AM - Forum: The Pub - No Replies

It's too apparent that filthy money runs this nation. Which leads me to believe what is the sense in voting. IMO, money makes the candidate. Trump has millions. But let's take a closer look at Hillary... On top of her millions there's Bills millions. On top of this, there's the millions spilling in from friends and colleagues the LGBT, Hollywood, various liberals and I'm pretty certain the BLM and all of those affiliated with them. Last but not least is the Rothchild family money that is her nest egg and safety net. 


So, we can see she most definitely has the financial influence to help propel her into the presidency. Then there's the power of the influence of the entertainment industry, corrupt media and willfully ignorant Americans. Lastly, we have the individual vote. Which easily gets washed away in the tidal wave of everything stated. There's the power of the override. Our government has learned that they can get away with whatever they want with the greatest of ease.

So, in all honesty, what is the power of a vote?

Liberal media at its finest. We've talked about this group on the old board. I know these guys aren't perfect, but I do somewhat support them. How is an organization that vowed to uphold the constitution and the oaths they swore when joining the military and law enforcement "a fiercely antigovernment, militaristic group,"?? Rather those who oppose them are anti-American.

  HD shotgun/rifle

If you have a home defense shotgun and/or rifle, do you chamber a round and keep the safety on or do you store it 'cruiser' safe i.e. full tube/magazine but chamber empty?

  New BOV
Posted by: mac66 - 01-06-2016, 06:33 PM - Forum: Land Transportation - Replies (38)

Finally bit the bullet and bought a new vehicle. My last new vehicle was a 99 full size Ford van which I just retired. My new one is a 2016 Ford F150 4x4 which is the first pickup I've ever bought. I've been a van guy since the 70s. 

The primary duty for this new truck (I am still staggering from sticker shock BTW) is a tow vehicle for a 28' travel trailer. I was going to get another van but I am building a house on my hunting property and thought a PU with 4WD would be better since it is pretty far back in the piney woods.  Bought the Ford because of employee family discount. Got the upgraded towing package and 3.5L ecoboost engine. That 6 cyl engine has more horse power, more torque and better millage than the 5.4L in my van or the 351 CI in my older vans. Since my wife and I are unlikely to be hauling passengers much I did not get the 4 door but rather the extended cab with half doors. I got the 8 foot bed primarily to haul lumber and my ATV, motorcycles etc. Many if not most new PUs have 4 doors and 6 foot beds.

Now I just have to figure out what else to do with it.

Initially this is what I have planned....
-spray in bed liner (either Line X or Rhinoliner)
-Toneau cover
-need some sort of storage box for tools and emergency stuff for the bed. I have tow straps, come alongs, chains etc from when I had my full size Bronco. This truck has some lockable tie downs in the bed
-I do have a Hi-Lift jack/bracket I had in my Bronco. It isn't really compatible with the types of bumpers and sheet metal on these new truck, though it can also be used as a come along. I don't expect to do much if any offroading in this very expensive truck, but I may figure out a way to mount this in the back just in case.
-center console lock box to keep guns and stuff in.
-mount a 2 meter mobile ham radio and antenna (which I already have though I am thinking of one of the new compact multi band mobiles that are out now).
-Emergency kit-I have a couple survival/supply kits that I kept in my van. They should fit under the back seat of this truck.

Things I am thinking about....for the future.

-Front trailer hitch receiver-It already has a receiver in back (part of the trailer package) but I've been reading about mounting one on the front. That way you can mount a winch on a hitch plate and move it from back to front  as needed.
-Back Rack which is a metal rack behind the cab that protect the rear window and allows lights and other stuff to be mounted on it. When I ran a college public safety dept we had a couple pick up trucks w/Back Racks we mounted overheads, spotlights and antennas on. They were handy. You can also adapt them for kayaks, boats, etc if you need that stuff up out of the bed.

Other stuff...

Open to suggestions.

  Replacement sheath for Fallkniven NL1 Thor
Posted by: Wolfman - 01-05-2016, 08:21 PM - Forum: Packs and Gear - Replies (5)

The missus got me a Fallkniven NL1 Thor for christmas Big Grin , honking great big 10" blade. Really lovely looking and feels great in the hand, but the leather sheath sucks. The quality of the leather is high, stitching is perfect, but the pair of metal snaps that hold the knife’s belt loop together are not man enough and pop open while just walking along Angry .

I have fired off an email to Fallkniven whinging about it but they do not have any other sheaths that will fit the NL1. So i am in search of a replacement sheath. I have to carry and use the knife or the missus will be unhappy Dodgy .

So i am in search of recomendations for a replacement sheath kydex/nylon/leather. Looked at the Spec Ops Combat Master sheath long and it only takes knives upto 8" long, I have ordered 2 for acouple of other knives we have to upgrade their sheaths.

So anyone know of a good quality generic sheath for a 10" x 1.65" x 0.28"  blade ? Or am i going to have to go custom kydex, which to be honest is not my prefered method as i will have to most likely send the blade via international post subject to theft by customs.

Total length: 385 mm (15.15")
Blade length: 254 mm (10")
Blade width: 42 mm (1.65")
Blade thickness: 7 mm (0.28")
Weight (knife): 520 g (1.15 lbs)

Gotta love a wife that gives a gift like that and is not trying to stab you with it.

  Survival and Preparedness 2016
Posted by: JRSC - 01-04-2016, 08:01 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

This thread might be a mix of others. But, Seeing the state of our country and world right now, 2016 just might be the year we may have to rely on our preps and skills. I'm not trying to sound crazy or paranoid. But the dynamics of America could very well change forever as we know it by Election Day. That is if we make it that far. 

With that said, we should check our gear a bit more often, do we have enough gear (fire sources, water filters, batteries, etc)  and make sure our skills are sharp. How often do you train and practice with your gear? Do you do any real world scenario practice? Do you talk to others about preparedness? Just something to think about and reflect on.
