Re: 100 year freeze VS Bugging out

My only issue was heat - I had what I thought was plenty of wood for a fireplace, but I had to 1) eek it out and 2) saw logs off tree-limbs I'd recently cut down. I was fine on food, I always have 3 big jugs of water in the fridge, a swimming pool and the means to purify more (water tabs, various pu...

Re: New toy enroute

No plugs, just electronic muffs. I need to work out a better grip - my left thumb was interfering with my trigger finger, so it looks like a weird hold. I was going for accuracy and wasn't using a death-grip, so the recoil is a bit more dramatic than it should be. One thing that doesn't come through...

I don't want to bore anyone with my new toy, but I went back to shoot and got someone to video me:

Re: New toy enroute

I called AM and spoke with Rob, and then Chris (production manager, I think). They made the points that yes, 1) the lockup is tight (for accuracy and longevity) and 2) springs are heavy (again longevity). Chris taught me an interesting technique where one places one's thumb through the trigger-guard...

Re: What I learned during Snowmaggedon

Snovid-21 - lol. Stealing that :)

I had plenty of food, fresh water, cooking options, water-purification options, etc - but I think I'll lay in a larger supply of firewood this time.

The recoil-springs are extremely strong and the c...
