Star Peanut lighter test thread
Posted by: David - 08-04-2018, 12:47 PM - Forum: Fire - Replies (4)

I've done various testings on peanut lighters in the past.  I've gotten 6+ months of use from some of them and I'm confident they could have gone longer.  Starting a new test thread on the one I just received.  This is one that is shaped like a bullet.  I like this design because the top unscrews to allow access to the flint wheel and wick while the bottom also unscrews to allow you to fill it with fuel.  The other type has a canister that pulls out for filling but I've noticed that after a while the top of the canister comes apart at the seams.  

So I received, filled and did the initial lighting on July 25th.

Second lighting on August 1st.  

I'll continue every so often to see how long the fuel lasts.  Hopefully the O-rings that came with it are fine but if not I have a plethora of extras to swap out.  Hoping to get multiple months of use before having to refill.

I'm now fully suppressed in rimfire. MKII, 10/22, and precision 22 all hushed up for the apocalypse. Or for fun backyard plinking.
Picked up the newest one today. CGS Hydra SS. 7.5 months for stamp.

  Will we have another civil war?
Posted by: bmyers - 08-03-2018, 04:41 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

Several threads have me thinking about if the country is headed for a civil war? No, it is not the threads on all the social unrest. Social unrest leads to revolutions. 

Civil wars are fought over who has the power. The last civil war was fought over who had the power, state verses federal government. 

We are seeing more and more issues where states are denying the authority (right or wrong) of the federal government. Those in charge (at both levels) don't like having power taken away from them. As the states exercise more and more freedom from the federal government (marijuana, immigration, etc.) at what point will the federal government feel they have no choice put to use force (military force) to enforce their will/laws?

I don't believe that antifa or any group like that will bring civil war, but more so when those in charge feel the power slipping away (state and/or federal level) that is when things will get messy.

And if you use an AR15 you're probably a racist and a Nazi as well...

  Wellington Boots as a Prep
Posted by: Wolfman - 07-27-2018, 08:39 PM - Forum: Packs and Gear - Replies (2)

I raise this question because i live in a semi rural area and have always had wellington boots, always dunlop brand and until today i never thought of them as a prep item. Rather annoying 20 years prepping and overlooking such a basic item, this will be a long weekend searching for what else i missed or dismissed because they where to familar.

I dropped into the farm supply store coming home from work to get afew rolls of pig mesh and they had dunlop wellingtons on sale, about $8 a pair for adult $6 for kids. Out of the blue the thought struck me, feck in SHTF no new wellingtons, we all have several sets in various conditions and while very durable they will wear out.

Milsurp boots are great wear em for work everyday but they do leak eventually, but warm and dry feet in winter in a comfortable, durable and affordable welly is a win. 

So a new prep item for my lists, now i will worry and wonder what else i have over looked.

  Water Well pump kit for sale. Awesome!
Posted by: ric0123 - 07-27-2018, 03:37 PM - Forum: Water - Replies (1)

I came across this on facebook 


https://emergencywaterwell.com/


It looks really cool. It can't possibly be that easy! 

The downside is that you have to be in an area where the water table is relatively high. Here in Texas, it's over 100 feet in most areas, but they claim in the video that they have done it by hand to 50ft.
