As for feeding the whole population – not going to happen. I’ve heard estimates that 70 to 90% will die of starvation, murder and disease in the first year of a real SHTF situation. But the government has 100 million MRE’s stored up you say, great, …

Ammo could be an issue so something that is common. 5.56(.223), 7.62 Nato (.308), 9mm or .45Acp. A good battle rifle (5.56) and many extra magazines, a good 9mm hi cap pistol (or a .45 auto) is a start. The AR10 platform (7.62 Nato) is good to 700 …

Other weapons • Re: Country Weapons vs City Weapons

At one of my med classes a pork shoulder was shot with a 9mm, a .223 and a 12ga slug. The 9mm and the 12ga both penetrated, the .223 did not. The wound channel on the 9mm was, well, 9mm or a little bigger, the .223 had a cavity you could fit your fist into with a tiny entrance hole, the 12ga was awesome. All shots were from about 2′. Also, most people that practice martial arts would get killed in a street fight.

Terrorism & other Man made disasters • Re: EMPs & Automobiles

July 21, 2017 apache235 0

Actually the EMP has three components E1, E2 & E3 and hostile military forces are/have developed a super EMP that may run as high as 200,000 volts/meter. I would think that anything that has a computer chip in it would be toast unless protected by a very robust Faraday cage.

Guns • Re: Transitioning From Rifle To Handgun

July 17, 2017 apache235 0

Not sure why they are talking about a revolver, but whatever. I guess my feelings are, if you need the accuracy, dump it and use two hands, if you need to move, duck and grab rifle then git. If things are really close and you need to move, hold on to the rifle and use one hand on the pistol and move. Leaving your primary weapon (unless totally broken) doesn’t make much sense to me.

Matt, my comment on bodies would be from a health standpoint that leaving them to rot by the wayside might not be tactically or medically sound. I guess it depends on how many and what critters might enjoy the free food. Second, that app at the end of your comment scares the crap out of me.

I’m all for gun control – start with the absolute prohibition of ANY Democrat owning or being in close proximity to ANY firearm or explosive, I’m sure the left will agree with that. s/o

Actually the first two tests are 35 questions each, of which you must answer 26 correctly. That would be for the Technician license and the General license. The Extra license is a 50 question test and you need a 70% to pass or 35 questions right.

May 17, 2017 apache235 0

We are only the power if we are an educated populace. As of now, I’d guess the average American young adult has no clue about civics, history or economics. So much for being well educated and therefor they will never vote out the power hungry. I’m sorely afraid that the solution will be a watering of the tree, or we will slip quietly into slavery with nary a whimper, only a “where’s mine?”

In a word, No. In several words, I can see some merit to it, but if you are being threatened then lethal force is justified, and if you are being attacked, then lethal force is necessary.
