General Arkansas Discussion, News, and Weather • check your BOB!

April 4, 2017 mombear 0

I know you won’t believe me, but I am a avid camper and while out camping found myself short of a item. Knowing I also carry it in my BOB, I went to get it out and discovered that I have neglected some items in the BOB, like the candy, crackers and other non-long term stuff. With that said, I have fixed my problem and restocked the BOB, plus removed a few things that I really don’t think I will need.

Today is the day to check your BOB and correct anything that needs to be done!

Food & Water • Re: storing coffee

April 4, 2017 mombear 0

Just a FYI I opened a jar of coffee I vacuum packed in ’06, took it to the American Legion Post and made a 99 cup peculator full of coffee with it. Someone asked me what type of coffee it was cause it was good. It was dunkin’ donuts brand, LOL!!

Anyways thought you all might want to know. I have vacuum packed two quart jars to replace it.

Construction Cornerstone • Re: Hide in plain sight OR Wall around home

April 4, 2017 Blondie 0

In total agreement with Ice Fire’s comments, who owns the “woods”? And what if some 12 yr old rabbit hunting sets off your “traps”? If it’s well concealed underground, why the need for booby traps?

Then thers’s logistics. If your stash is burried more than a few hundred feet away, how are you going to haul your items back home…..or wherever you’re headed without being seen? And robbed.

Up here you’ll contend with a good foot or two in snowcover several months of the year.

When building your fortress, make sure it’s to code. You’re keeping out firefighting equipment, EMS/ambulance as well as the bad guys. As Illini said, the cops will think you’re cooking meth.

I’m honestly not a fan of either. I believe in extreme isolation for my defenses, hundreds of miles of rivers & swamps in the summer and ice & snow in the winter make a great buffer. A walled home is like a castle, it is a big target that can be laid siege to. A hidden bunker is never really hidden, you have ventilation ports and entrances that can expose your position with thermal imaging. A determined adversary will eventually get into either one.

Likewise I am not a fan of traps. To begin with they will are a constant hazard for you and yours when moving around, trip carrying firewood in the wrong spot & your done. Dogs are a big part of my life as well, and a trap injuring or killing one of the dogs not only puts me out a valuable member of my family (team) that hauls my supplies but it diminishes my perimeter security and alarm system. Traps also have the added bonus of destroying any meat that walks into my yard, every spring I get a bear within 50 feet of my cabin (its great I don’t have to pack meat) and traps would interfere with my meat resupply plan.

Guns • Re: pistol optics

April 4, 2017 Permafrost 0

I expect battery life to be much shorter, but I have no idea what else to expect when trying to use one at -40 on the trap line.

The only reason I am considering it is because on the Ruger Mark 1 through 4 platform the bolt moves instead of a pistol slide moving, leaving a scope or dot/optic sight stationary. I honestly have no experience with them, all my rifles have traditional scopes and I have iron sights on my pistols. This is new to me so I thought I would see if anyone out there had opinions about optics on pistols, and if they had preferred brands that they have had good luck with.

Cin who knows they could be survivalists , bad or good people or they just want to left alone .
If they have stuff placed around that would aid in a defensive stand against entry then they might be smart people .
I have stuff placed here and there that could be used to defend my place . Old equipment , tires , boats , junk cars , trucks and barrels just stuff setting around in the correct places .

The product is so fine, like sugar, not like the grits in most instant milk.
I didn’t keep the box…milk went straight to bucket.
Thanks.

Huh????

I keep my milk in 2/3 gallon buckets from Sam’s Club.

Have not heard of this before. I have had no issues with my model 512 as far as temperature swings but its mild here with no radical differences like you might find in the Midwest. I like the scope but cannot train myself to keep the left eye open as recommended.

Yep….Claims deadline is on May 23rd, 2017.

I suggest you research, test, accept it or return it before then.

Easy enough to check it out…. ZERO it on a warm part of the day, disconnect it and put it in a cooler for a bit.(not in the water of course), remount and test…..Remember: EO Tech’s are supposed to maintain zero from disconnect to remount if mounted in the same picatinny rail point.

If you’re off ZERO, you can decide if its acceptable or not to you.

All sights have a flaw somewhere….it’s just more important to know your equipment flaws and work around them IMO…..This lawsuit is just about the claims them made for the sales of the HWS.
I can say personally I bought it for the site window as my primary reason with the durability, but the remount and ability to maintain ZERO was a big selling point for me also….That’s why I might keep it and get the $100 credit(If that’s what I get)

***I think you can do the RMA process directly with them at EO Tech

Here’s info from a lawyers add….. http://www.eotechlawsuit.com/

And here’s the other one….. Good pdf forms and info here…. http://www.fostersettlement.com/?utm_source=Google&utm_campaign=EOTech&utm_medium=banner&gclid=CL7gzKr2itMCFYJ8fgodtJUJCQ

Another good thing you can do is take the solar cells out and make a charger for a 12volt battery. You can buy the best solar energy systems hook 8 of them together and charge a 12volt battery. Good cheap battery chargers for emergencies.

Hello jreb721,

Thanks for the post. Can you tell me From where i can find the affordable solar lighting led??

I’m not jreb, but here is a source.

Harbor Freight sells a light and solar charger combo for $30. I have one in every room of my house. Very bright and they are always charged, ready to go during a power outage.

There’s a junky yard down the road from us. Husband and I are convinced the people are survivalists. We see the same cars and ATV go in and out with regularity, they look fairly new, and the people don’t speak much (we’ve crossed paths with them). We’ve been told there’s a nice home back there, if one is ever invited to visit.

The junk is positioned around the property, slightly overgrown, and yet, there’s a couple old trailers near the front, and the windows are always visible, despite the weeds and brush overgrowing everything else. If you stare at the property long enough (we try not to) – the trailers are forward defense. The old cars scattered about are to hide behind to get out of a field of fire. And the broken down crane with the bucket still in the air, well a person in it can hide and see for miles around.

Or it’s just an old junk yard with rotting carcasses of cars/mobile homes, nothing to see or salvage here, move along.

sounds more like they are cooking meth or have kidnapped teenagers chained up ….
