  1. Great deal on some ammo. Definitely would buy from him again.
  2. Occasionally I post up survival & prep posts detailing good (from my perspective, anyway) advice from my research and training on how to ready yourself and your family in the most efficient (not always the most comfortable) ways possible. Lately I've been looking into my kits and have a pretty good set up for most any situation that pops up. Today I am doing a bit of research. Usually while researching specific topics and skills, I like to ask people that have virtually zero survival, medical, combative, or manual labor skills(auto repair, house repair, electrical, ect) how they would handle the situations they might run into. So far the responses I have received from your average person are pretty uniform. When I start to ask them questions, I start out with a few things. From there I move on and ask more specific questions, and how they intend to solve the problems created by how they answer the questions posed. What I am doing now is asking you all, who do actually have skills other than video games and being sheeple what your solutions would be. I am trying to build an understanding of the general populace and how they would react to situations that would require them to step out of their comfort zone. I do NOT want personal details on any of you here. In fact I strongly discourage this, even in private message. However, if you feel comfortable enough with the questions posed, please answer them to the best of your capabilities. What skills do you have that you feel would be beneficial to a SHTF/disaster situation? (This is as vague as possible for a reason, mainly since we can't foresee what we might endure.) How many people are in your family? Please include Sex and Age group (Senior, Adult, Teen, Child, Baby). How many have serious health issues? (Meaning they need medication to live. Without it they will/can die) How do you intend to deal with this situation? What have you done to prepare supply wise? What are you doing now, and what do you plan on doing? Where do you plan to go (generalization), and when (after you realize SHTF)? Do you have a BOB, BOV, BOL? If so, what are the most important pieces of equipment in each? If you need to leave your home to get out of the area, what routes do you plan on taking? (Bridges, Interstates, highways, main roads like 206 and 30, back roads, trails) Do you have different Tier Kits for each level of need (Usually separated into 3 tiers)? If so, what are the most important pieces of equipment in each? What medical supplies do you think are crucial? What do you intend to do if you run out of supplies? Do you know how to farm, raise farm animals, or hunt? How long do you think you and your family/group can survive on its own? If you dont feel comfortable with posting in public, please feel free to PM me. Also, please remember to leave out any personal information from your answers. They are irrelevant, but more importantly they are none of my business. Thank you all in advance for your input.
  3. These cops have nothing to worry about except boredom and the fact that who ever pulled the trigger now has to live with the fact that he took a life. It doesn't matter that he did it rightfully and to defend himself, he took a life and that will stay with him for the rest of his. Added to the fact that this could have been avoided (by the deceased, not the police) due to the unloaded magazine and it makes it even worse. The officer did everything he was suppose to do, but in the end sometimes that isn't enough for the person who has to live with the facts. I feel sympathetic towards the officers involved, this should have never happened.
  4. I'm going to be getting a few different models soon, as they are great for the jobs they are designed for. However most people don't stick to just that function, which is why I posted that. I generally have a Leatherman of SOG Power assist on me at all times, both are amazing. To be honest I think the OP should get a multi-tool. Takes the guess work out of it if the LE ask him why he has it.
  5. This is false, anyone can have a sever burn or cut that scars and thus alters finger prints, which is why it's not considered harassment if they try to finger print you every time you go in to get a Pistol Purchasing Permit (I think there is something saying that they can only do it once a year, but I can't say for sure.)
  6. Yes and no. Mora knives are amazing for their price, but they don't hold up well to heavy usage/heavy duty work. But then they weren't designed for that. For the money, I'd buy 2 or 3; but then that also depends on the job it is to perform. For the jobs the OP might come across I think these would be much better, although I'm pretty sure he wanted a folder.
  7. They did cite it, the notice alleges it. Therefore, the notice has to reference the claim, which more than likely will be a police report since this is a lawsuit against a government body. The only other way to win a lawsuit would be if it was all recorded on video or there were multiple witnesses of sound judgement and reliability. As far as the unloaded glock, the logic behind that is most people are extremely intimidated by just the sight of a gun, however it doesn't appear that this guy took into account that these were Police Officers who were enforcing the law. As far as Im aware you can't legally take you gun out of your front door with it in hand while in a menacing manner (since he was opening the door and walking out to either confront or address the police, or anyone else for that manner). Basically he broke a lot of laws with that one, and since the gun was already in hand he was definitely an imminent threat. When he allegedly pointed the gun at the police, he was an immediate threat and the officers defended themselves. The fact that they didn't follow up with the caller has nothing to do with this. The caller indicated he was suicidal (whether or not those claims were legitimate remains to be seen) and when that happens any responding officer has to assume mental instability and that the individual concerned is a danger to themselves and possibly others (since they feel they have nothing to live for). The way he approached the armed officers is why he was shot. They should not have shot him in the chest, but the fact of the matter is we are all (Military, LE, or civilian) trained to aim center mass and not to wound. Still, there isn't nearly enough information to say one way or the other. The above statement is based on if all the information provided were all of the details involved, and as we all know that is rarely the case.
  8. If he lives in the barracks, his state of residence is NJ. Due to laws and regulations, He can claim NJ as his home and pay ZERO taxes since he lives on base and in the barracks. I did this every year on my taxes. Since that is the case, hes State of Residence is NJ, and he can get a gun according to that statute. However, if he lives off base in an apartment or house, he no longer can claim residence in NJ. Edit: Not all states allow this type of thing. I know for a fact that NJ does, at least for taxes.
  9. Just remember that you get what you pay for! Keep you eye on ballisticreload.com, they usually have some decent spydercos every once in a while. I picked up a $180 (on some sites it was $250) spydero knife there for about $50 (VG-10 blade) as well as 2 other sydercos for $20 that were originally $80 or so.
  10. I've done a LOT of training, and run training myself, not to mention I frequently play airsoft in MILSIM and paintsofting realms. The problem though is the uneven amount of experience everyone shares. You can have "representatives" from each discipline but the fact of the matter is unless they all have similar levels of experience it isn't exactly a clear indicator on the pros/cons of each, or to see which one fares better. To KISS: "Train like you fight." Also, "Training Trumps Gear."
  11. In any case, I'll be there to participate and help out with gear if needed.
  12. Mainly these are safety limits in case it hits delicate or loose skin, and also the face area. These bbs can easily break teeth or become lodged in skin if you get much more powerful than that. As far as FoF this facility is plenty big enough for up top 5v5 if I remember correctly. Just run a few drills and then set a few scenarios.
  13. Not sure how big the kill house is, but I'd say no more than 350 fps if its huge, but IIRC its kinda tight and confined so I'd venture to say 300 or 330 at the most
