  Bike Crash
Posted by: mac66 - 07-23-2019, 06:44 PM - Forum: First Aid - Replies (7)

Not sure where to put this but since I administered first aid to myself I thought I would throw it up here.

Am recovering from a bicycle crash from a week ago.  Was out on my regular 30 mile circuit after a rain. Came around a corner and hit a patch of mud. Wheels went out from under me and I went down on my left side on the cement. OUCH!  Fortunately I didn't break anything like the last time, but got banged up pretty good. Skinned my left knee, shoulder, both hands and my face on the left side. Sprained both wrists and badly bruised my right shin and elbow (the one I broke the last time.  My left shoulder is still pretty sore. Haven't been able to work out or do much around the house.

I was carrying a FAK and water with me and managed to clean and bandage the wounds before finishing my ride. Could hardly move the next day however. Being 64 sucks*, much harder to recover these days.

Bottom line, gauze and vet (stretchy, clingy) tape is a good thing to have with you.

*but it beats the alternative

I wasn't sure where to post this topic, so feel free to move it.

With the change of leadership in Britain, it looks like Brexit is more likely to happen at the end of October, one way or another. 

I wonder how this change will effect the global economy? Once Britain exits, will other countries decide to go? Will this be good for the US Economy? 

We are now such an interconnected world, I'm trying to grasp what the effects will be on the US? I think it may be advantageous to the US in the long run if we are able to bring back some of the business and prove/re-establish that we are the stable economic driving powerhouse. 

The worrisome part, China, India, and I'm sure Russia are all chomping at the bit to see what great deals they can grab and what markets they can devour.

  Antibiotics, how to get them and when and where to apply them
Posted by: Rifleman 84 - 07-20-2019, 05:57 PM - Forum: First Aid - Replies (4)

During SHTF simple cuts and infections will once again become potentially lethal. Most antibiotics are only available with prescriptions and the only ones I know of that don’t require a prescription are for animals. How do I obtain antibiotics for use in a grid down scenario? These are all I have found so far.


When is it appropriate to use antibiotics?

  5 more Olights today
Posted by: Ronin.45 - 07-19-2019, 01:28 AM - Forum: Lighting - Replies (5)

I took advantage of the big sale last weekend. It's hard to pass up 40% off.
I picked up two of the newer PL-Mini Valkyrie weaponlights(one for a buddy) and the PL-Pro. They threw in another S1RII (which is probably my favorite pocket light and my current EDC) and an i3e keychain light.
I was looking for a rifle light and the Warrior X was the front-runner, but the PL-Pro has some great features, is much more compact, and was on a better sale. I may play with it on my suppressor host until I get around to buying mounting rails for my SBR. It should do well on both with 1500lumens and almost 300 yards of throw. That's more than enough distance for my rifle.

  Hydroponic in the mason jar. Kratky method
Posted by: ric0123 - 07-14-2019, 03:22 PM - Forum: Gardening & Homesteading - Replies (2)

Anyone out there trying out hydroponic growing?
I'm in an apartment so space is very limited. I'm experimenting with broccoli and lettuce in a mason jar using hydroponic methods. No success yet but it's still early

Video Magazine capacity
Posted by: David - 07-11-2019, 08:58 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (16)

Hard to get an exact round count, but I counted at least 10 rounds fired between the two times the primary engaged the target. That isn't counting other rounds by any of the other officers on scene. One reason why pistol capacity can be a very important consideration.  Although not every incident will require that many rounds, what if it does?  What if that knife-welding individual is on meth, benzos, spice, crack or cocaine? 

Tossing this out for consideration, debate, discussion.
