  Read Chuck Norris Died
Posted by: Tsquare - 09-26-2015, 03:44 PM - Forum: The Pub - Replies (1)

Earlier this week I read that Chuck Norris died. The good news is that he got better.

Apparently this was a hoax that went viral.

Thumbs Up SEP Gathering #10
Posted by: David - 09-24-2015, 12:30 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (30)

Okay folks, we're getting back into the season of the SEP Gatherings Smile

This will be the 10th outing and I'm pumped!  Our target date is November 6-8 (Friday-Sun).  Our target location is Serenova Tract:

Serenova Tract

Serenova Tract is over 6500sq acres and backs up to J.B. Starkey Wilderness which is another 8000sq acres.  Just in Serenova Tract there are 18 miles of trails.  Fishing is on the agenda (Shane caught a beautiful Rainbow Trout last year).  Historical/archeological sites are also along some of the trails.

We are looking at getting the same primitive site as last year.  This is somewhat unique in that the primitive sites are not far away from where you park your vehicle so it will offer the fun of a primitive site while having access to your vehicle if you want a few extra luxuries.  Figured that was a nice way to kick off the season.

The site itself is huge and there is room for dozens of people.  And this is one of the sites that has an extra large fire ring. 

We'll plan on being there Friday afternoon and leave Sunday morning.  Come for one or both days as your schedule allows. 

This year I'm looking to bring the sling shot and maybe the pellet rifle for plinking and target practice and of course the fishing poles. 

If you can make it, give a shout out here in the thread.

Exclamation Scenario #3 - inconvenient to worse case
Posted by: David - 09-23-2015, 01:19 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (13)

Scenario One - Inconvenient:

Your at work. A situation occurs such as a power outage or perhaps a storm. Nothing life threatening but it looks like you'll maybe have to spend the night where you work because either the lights aren't working or it's just too risky getting out on the road. Cell service is still operable and the family is safe at home. What's your plan?

Scenario Two - Starting to kinda suck:

Same situation as above but it's a Friday and it looks like whatever services you need to get home are going to be slow going over the weekend (i.e. restoring roads and/or lights to serviceable conditions). Maybe you'll get out tomorrow or maybe Sunday. Family is safe at home and you still have cell service but the land lines are currently down. Of course your cell phone doesn't have enough juice for a whole weekend trapped at work and electricity currently is out. What's your plan?

Scenario Three - Worse Case:

The situation is severe. Could be a bad storm that threatens the whole area. Could be wide spread grid-down. Either way there is panic in the streets. You've seen looters and shots have been fired in the distance. Electricity and cell service aren't working at all. You hope you're family has all made it home and are safe with whatever game plan you've prepared ahead of time...but you can't verify it from your present location. What's your plan.

As with other scenarios I've created a general situation but left some/many details nebulous so that you can fill in particulars for your situation/game plan.

  Level of preparedness - 30 days
Posted by: David - 09-23-2015, 01:09 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (24)

Okay, we've got threads/polls on 72 hours and SHTF/TEOTWAWKI so I figured to fill in the gap.  This one is for an event that lasts 30 days.  Could be from a number of different situations of course, but the basic premise is that basic services (food, fuel, first responder etc) are severely limited or non-existent for a period of 30 days. 

How would you fare?

As always in these types of threads, it is for educational purposes to the extent that someone posts something that you haven't thought of or a piece of gear/training/skill/knowledge you don't have but realize you need to acquire.  So how would you do for 30 days?

  .22/.410 'survival' rifle
Posted by: David - 09-23-2015, 12:59 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (7)

Anyone have one of these?  This is on my 'just because' list of rifles.  Savage makes an nice looking one (M42) and someone else makes a .22 that breaks down into the stock.  The .22/.410 looks like it would be a handy little backpack rifle for the trail.

  9mm Target Ammo for 15 cents per round
Posted by: Tsquare - 09-22-2015, 10:21 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (64)

I saw this somewhere else and wanted to pass it on. Homeland Munitions is having a sale on 9mm right now. You can get a 1000 rounds of 115 RN target ammo for $150 shipped. Use the discount of 17LBDY17 to get 17% off and it is a flat rate shipping of $10. This is a little more than what it would cost me to reload.


No affiliation but I think this is one of the better ammo deals I have seen in a while.
