So I need to confirm data. It's my understanding that the VZ58 is not comparable with the AK47/74, as it uses a different gas system. And if I remember correctly the VZ 58 mags and the AK mags are not interchangeable.

Or do I have this wrong. Honestly I don't remember where I learned this.

Thanks in advance.

Interesting observation. I’ve found just the opposite to be true. I’ve shot Wolf, 308, and found it to be ok. Sir, in your application a solid hit is usually a kill, with minimum amounts of medical care.

Bullet choice is often a matter of what is available at the moment. I’ve tried to cover that base, with my own loads, which are tailored to my long guns. I keep several thousand bullets for each caliber on the shelf. Along with casings, primers and high end dies.

I think we are in agreement, that if all I had to shoot was Wolfe ammo, I’d dam sure make it work for my specific needs.

ANACONDA, if I may ask are you in your military?,

the reason I ask is I’ve been studying the NEW Russian doctrine being used by them. Specifically their mortar, rocket and use of artillery.

Perhaps the most interesting stuff I’m reading is your small unit tactics against armor specifically older tanks and light armored troop carriers. Very impressive tactics.

Sir, if your not comfortable a reply is not required. I’m just interested in your country and the defense

Respectfully,
Dirk

General Homesteading Topics • Re: Bee’s

So far so good. All six hives are doing well. Had to,split one hive, as I was concerned about the bees swarming. That hive has made at least three queens, if I’m reading the evidence right.

It’s been cold here, 30/40s, the bee guys think that it’s been to cold for the queens to,fly to the drone hangout for initial breeding. Theirs activity, and I’m feeding that hive. But the rest are showing awesome bee activity.

Makes me smile, watching these creatures. Bees are truly awesome to watch. I’m glad I took a chance and started bee keeping. ,

Natural Disasters • Re: IN A DISASTER PRONE ZONE? WHAT KEEPS YOU IN YOURS?

EVERY area has it’s own particular set of natural hazards, whether it’s hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, drought, blizzards/ice storms, wildfires, etc. All you can do is decide WHAT kind of hazards you can live with, and plan accordingly.

For us, we’re midway between family, cost of living is relatively low, land is affordable, and we have decent paying jobs. That, plus we love the area. Something like a wildfire might force us out temporarily, but we’d be back.

I was just at the health food store yesterday, and the owner (a retired Ph.D nutritionist who used to run a behavior lab in a local hospital, said that they conducted an experiment while he was at the hospital on prostate cancer patients, because 13% (!) got infections from being in the hospital. They used a variety of herbal remedies (which for the life of me I don’t remember, darn it) and got it down to about 4% a couple of months later)

Post by John Lott: After over two hours of pre-interviews with Kristin Lazure, a Producer at Atlas Films, I was asked to travel to New York City to do an interview with Katie Couric for her new movie. As Kristin put it on July 14, 2015: “we are still very much interested in interviewing you to give the film greater balance.” During the pre-interviews, multiple times Kristin told me how much she appreciated my research and how important it was. Our interview in New York City was only supposed to last an hour, but ended up lasting almost 4 hours. Yet, none of the interview that I did was included in the movie.

Shared and sharing. Good stuff!
They tried to catch him off guard and use his interview out of context but obviously he did a great job and they could not find any breach.

Financial Issues • Re: TIPS FOR PREPPERS WITH FINANCIAL AND BUDGET DIFFICULTIES

Using a credit card for any purchase other than an unexpected emergency, or an unforeseen expense that arises is a cardinal sin in good budgeting. Falling for any “cash back” gimmic is also a no-no. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 % equals pennies on a dollar. They can afford that, because the interest on your unpaid balance is where they really gouge you and making minimum payments do not pay a thing on the principle of your balance or not enough to reduce your balance much at all. They count on you using it (your card) all the time. They count on you to be too lazy, too tired or too busy or not to take or make the time to track your day to day spending or keep track of it. They count on you being a spend thrift, impulsive buyer spender, purchaser and then to only have enough money to make the minimum payment. It’s like a snowball rolling downhill in moist snow. It grows very quickly. After you max out your card, they will offer to up or increase you limit, as long as you keep making at least the minimum payment on time. But then even the amount of minimum payment will grow with the increased balance owed will grow. When that one can go no further the card holder will resort to using another card until that one is in bad shape too. The person ends up deep in debt and having much difficulty repaying the money they spent that was not theirs to begin with. There is always a day of reckoning eventually. You can buy very good books in retail book stores to help you keep a balanced and successful budget and permanent bound ledgers and budget Journals and record books as well. I do NOT reccomend keeping your budget on or in a computer. Keep it on paper as a hard copy written in your own writing. If you can’t write, learn to, if you can’t read, learn to. If you can’t do simple math, learn to and then buy a low cost solar/ light powered calculator to double check your basic simple math with of the simple kind, NOT a fancy/prancy scientific one. More people are experiencing budget problems in America today because of credit card debt than any other reason. Right behind that is CHILD SUPPORT PAYMENTS AND BACK OWED CHILD SUPPORT, and then adjustable rate home mortgages and then car or vehicle loan payments. :-) Lifelong

from the article, it sounds like the main point of infection is through the urinary tract? Or that it ends up there from something eaten? If that’s the case, I would resist catherization in the hospital. Not that I am ever going to a hospital again. The last four times I was in a hospital, I got infections that put me right back in.

The article didn’t make this situation sound urgent. Or is that the usual MSM treachery?

Aunt Bee

Of course there is no urgency! With only 1.7 million Hospital Acquired “reported” Infections and 99 thousand “reported” deaths a year, how could you call this situation urgent??? Just because this new superbug is a bug we all carry in our poop and it can transmit its resistance to other bugs, is that a reason to worry???

Did I mention the studies that find nearly five percent of adults properly wash their hands after using the restroom! I would guess hospital staff do at least twice as well, but that may be optimistic! Swamp

The liberal loons have made this a purely emotional issue, and given the lemmings scripted replies. No logic is permitted. This is another example of Nanny State unhinged. The current administration has been happily promoting this chaotic thinking because for Obama to complete his task, it is critical that the population can’t shoot back. His task is overseen by the Muslim Brotherhood, Valerie Jarrett, and his half-brother, Malik. What’s happening in Europe is going to happen here if Obama gets his way.

BK I think you know I am not one of those that thinks 90% of all Americans are going to die. But many on APN do so. I am with you, economic crash is most likely and certain. Just depends on how fast or slow.

Sorry, it’s just one of those accepted prepping “facts” that are not facts at all.

Anyway, let’s just assume that an EMP goes off above the USA and it’s a worst-case scenario. All electrical services stop, cell phones and computers die, cars won’t start, planes fall out of the sky. Will people, even those in poor health, just die immediately? No, most won’t. After a few days as people realize no help is coming and civil order dissolves do you want to be without a firearm? if you have preps and no way to defend them you’ll more than likely be a casualty.

Point being: Have a gun and ammo and be prepared to use it if necessary. It doesn’t really matter if it’s an AK-47, AR-15, SKS, M1 or whatever, just train with it and keep it in good working order.

Natural Disasters • Re: IN A DISASTER PRONE ZONE? WHAT KEEPS YOU IN YOURS?

Natural Disasters • Re: IN A DISASTER PRONE ZONE? WHAT KEEPS YOU IN YOURS?

We moved here because the aging parents thought this was a great place driving through, so they moved here when they retired. And they were right.

Water, good soil, temperate 4-season climate, very scenic, not a lot of zoning/codes, low taxes, good folks who prefer to be left alone, but if you need them, they’re right there with everything they can do to help. Things are done on a handshake, the people who do work, work hard. I can locally source good meat, dairy, and heirloom produce besides what I grow myself. Plenty of forest that, with careful management, could sustain us and many others through our mild winters with wood energy. Castle law applies to house, land, and vehicle.

Should anything happen to the parents, we’d probably move on, despite the advantages and ties we’ve made here. We are far from other family, and we’ll move closer to them, after perusing the lay of the land for a good year before making that decision. (Although several of them have stated they’re coming here, so maybe that won’t be necessary ).

Drawbacks:

Tornado Alley. However, we’re in a little valley on top of a little ridge, and weather from all fronts seems to go right around our little valley. Not saying it could never happen, but in the 150 years our oldest resident’s family has been here, they weather moves around this little patch, as if it’s pushed away. Haven’t even had a close call in a 25 mile radius in known history. This includes 250 year old records at the newspaper office.

As with much of the Midwest, meth cookers are getting more brazen. If the legalization of marijuana happens here, it will turn into Little Colorado – since every spring, summer and fall, DEA has to burn off the marijuana fields they find on government land. Some have been within a mile of our place, because we are very close to gov’t land. If this happens, we might move on, we don’t want to be anywhere near any of that. Local law enforcement has practically been budgeted out of existence to save the money for good ole’ boys’ pensions. Too few officers for too large an area. Petty crime is an issue, but those crimes mostly stay in the town areas or just outside it. We’ve not had any incidents here at all, too far out.

Nearly 75% of the population of this area lives off some type of government assistance. However, the stats bundle military veterans, retired gov’t workers, and people on SS in that number. And since this is a vacation spot, many people retire here, which drives that number up. And that is a drawback, as most of the population is over 50. It can be a challenge to find someone to do routine type maintenance. When you’re an 80 year old woman and can’t find a 16 year old to mow your lawn, that’s a problem. I am approaching 60 and Husband is closing in on 70. We’re both in excellent health, but that can change on a dime, so this could be a future issue.

Ticks are an problem – the little buggers carry all sorts of diseases and it takes a strong immune system to fight those diseases off. The warmest weather on record these past few years has given them quite the foothold. More reports of Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. I’m pretty sure one of my dogs died from the after-effects and my current dog has tested positive for RMSF. In dogs, the disease is managed, not cured.

We are outside the zone for the New Madrid fault, but within the zone of where any survivors might make it to if they plan well. Aftershocks across the land might affect some wells, if rivers/lakes change course. This could impact us, as we are near a lake.

But frankly, every place we’ve looked at across the lower 48 has drawbacks. For now, we’re here because of aging parents, and we’ll stay here until something changes the dynamic. I did tell Husband that if we move again, I am selling everything except necessities and some sentimental stuff that can fit in the car, and we’ll buy what we need at the next place. No more dragging stuff across country, it’s just things, and it’s not worth it. So if we have a fire we’d rebuild, and if we were forcibly removed, no great loss.

I don’t have the rose colored glasses . What I have on hand and what I pickup before things go bad is different from what I might be able to get from the roaming herds .
On the topic of M16 or a AK , it is like apples and oranges , one is better at longer ranges the other hit harder at shorter ranges , both are proven platforms , ammo weight is different for X amount of rounds . Some prefer one over the other and some prefer heaver hitters like the 30-36 or 308 . I do agree no matter what you like just be good with it and have the needed supplies to keep it working and filled .
