Fresh meat from a wild game animal is for many of us something that is tough to pass up. It is because of its appetizing nature that wild game is sought year after year by hunters who spend time...

The other day I was having a conversation with a group of guys at the range, a couple of whom are self-appointed gun experts. Attending a single NRA course and volunteering at the range being their only qualifications for such an esteemed classification. We started talking about affordable handgun options for the "common person" who might have some familiarity with shooting but does not own a handgun. This was in the context of range officers being asked this often. This of course lead into the same old debate about Hi-Points, Kel-Tecs and polymer Taurus autos versus high end custom Glocks. That's when I decided it was time to go.
If you had to choose between one or the other. Would you rather carry a good quality axe or a quality machete and if possible, please tell us why.
I have a good Husqvarna 26” axe and I am contemplating the purchase of an Ontario SP53 Hen 2 machete. My main reason for wanting the knife is for batoning. It’s use would serve 2 purposes. Camping as well as survival.. Camping is a great way to practice your skills...
I have been meaning to write up a quick review for a while now, so here it is.
If you read my other thread I was extremely excited when this gun was announced. I complained to S&W the day the first M&P rolled off the line that they also needed a mid-sized compact model. I then complained to S&W at least annually. It took them 12 years but they finally got it done...
Due to some remodeling, I now have a room that we can dedicate as a pantry. It'll mostly be food but will also have hygiene stuff, first aid supplies, etc..
It is just off the kitchen and is 11' long and 7-1/2' wide with about 9' ceilings. I know what supplies to store and how to make them last.
But...any tips on the pantry itself?
As others here, I not only live in tornado alley.but I also had one come to close for comfort.i finally ended up with the well needed materials needed to turn/convert the hall closet floor into a tornado safe room and stock it with a few items.only thing is, I didn't think of before and during pics. I'm using my smart phone. So I don't know if I can upload the after pictures or not.the closet walls are done with 1x6 or 1x8.the plywood is 3/4.i do need to go with a catchment for getting some of the item's out of there,just to make a lol more space in there.
