    Survival training program for advanced skills

    Is there a survival forum out there - or would someone be interested in starting one - where people could disseminate, learn and begin to apply information that would be important in a survival situation but might not necessarily relate directly to firearms? This could have several advantages...

    Bumpy LEO encounter tonight

    First off, I'm in Florida. Ok, well, tonight around 9:30 I was on one side of town and trying to get to the other side. I had my friend and her cousin in the back and they both look like they're about 12 (although they're actually much older). This wasn't a main road, it was more of a side...

    Mississippi woman shot in head, just fine

    Terminator series treats guns right

    I don't know if anyone has seen the Sarah Connor series put out by Fox over the last two years. It's a lot different from the movies, primarily taking a somewhat "darker" tone. One of the consistent themes that I've noticed is that it treats firearms more as tools and less as an excuse for an...

    Microfiber as a water source

    I've started using microfiber towels after taking a shower. You can get these at Walmart for pretty cheap...the ones I've been using are "Millenium Kitchen" brand (yeah, they're technically "dish towels"). But they have some interesting properties. For one thing, they're self-drying and they...

    Everything is amazing and no one is happy

    Link Removed...people complain an awful lot, when there's really not that much to whine about. We should be happy we're alive at all. Shoes are a big plus - lots of people don't have them. When was the last time you were thankful for being able to wear shoes - or for having feet to put them...

    Legend of the Mall Ninja

    Ever wonder where the phrase "mall ninja" comes from? Here's your answer. :laugh: :laugh:

    Tactical ears

    These are basically hearing aids for hunting. However, they also have Link Removed. Detecting the sound of footsteps, people whispering or a careless movement may give a huge advantage. Clearly this isn't the sort of thing that would be practical to wear on a consistent basis. It would...

    EPG car window glass

    This sounds interesting - the article is from 2000 and I guess these are on some newer vehicles, but I haven't heard about it in most cars yet. Sounds like a no-brainer way to make car theft a more difficult job. I wonder if this is available for people who want it put on their vehicles...

    Misty-eyed basketball game

    This sounds like a chain email, or a sappy Disney movie. Cool that it happened in real life.

    Eric Holder is an idiot

    Link Removed Maybe Mr. Holder should do a survey and find out if this is really the case before he starts saying stupid stuff. :laugh:

    In the UK, only the outlaws have (working) guns

    I'd hate to face down a home invader with a Link Removed. The Brits certainly know how to mutilate their own liberty! Meanwhile, the criminals do what just comes naturally for them. Lucy Cope should reactivate her brain. She's part of the problem to begin with. :wacko:

    What's with all the murder-suicides lately?

    Ok, so...first the Santa guy, then the 6 or 7-person shooting in LA, Link Removed. What's up with this business? You know...I can see adults getting mad at each other and whatever, but the kids didn't do anything. :sad:

    Analog TV to die! THE SKY IS FALLING!!

    The House has refused to delay the switchover from analog to digital TV. Ok, me insensitive or whatever. but what's the big deal? Is TV really THAT essential of a service that we need to make a big deal about potentially - GASP - not having it for a little while? As far as I know...

    Dutch courts allow criminals to deduct on taxes

    This should be a joke, but it's not. Why don't they just license criminals and be done with it?

    Blago's lawyer quits

    When your attorney jumps overboard, that's usually a sign that things are not going well. If Blago were anyone else, he probably would have hung himself by now. This guy is amazing; he's so self-assured, yet so wrong - and is just continuing to stick it out like the leader of a small fascist...

    Second Amendment reloaded

    With Obama in the WH, there's been a lot of talk about the gun rights lobby becoming more "Link Removed" - fortifying our rights, preemptively attacking the ideas of antis, and suchlike. I love the Second Amendment, but it doesn't seem to quite get through to some people who are rather dense...

    New terrorist torture/self defense option

    The Israelis could broadcast this at high volume into Gaza, and their enemies would just give up. For determined enemy combatants, strap them to a chair in front of a screen and roll this over and over. How many seconds would it take them to fold? Probably better than waterboarding. This has...

    It's surprising to me how many people would be seriously up the creek if they were forced to drive a stickshift, paddle a canoe or ride a bicycle in an emergency. It would really be a good thing if more people had at least a rudimentary knowledge of how to operate a wide variety of vehicles if...
