Re: How to survive a bear attack article

ChuckHawks, who I often don't agree with, said that a 30-06 is the #1 most popular with guides, and 300 WM the second. Know what? The bear is not really going to feel the difference between 30-06 bolt action and a 180 grain 308 from a SCAR-17S rife. Why not carry something light that fires faster? ...

Why own a shotgun? Might trade for a 45.70

With the advent of body armor and the easier access to it by criminals, it would seem that a shotgun is less than ideal in todays world. It has bad sectional density therefore it would suck on large grizzly bears. Thinking about trading it for a 45.70 to carry on hikes.

Food. What lasts long, can be eaten often, and is cheap?

I am looking for cheap food, that lasts a long time, and can be put in with regular meals. MRE's are cool but they are expensive, dont last for ever, and have more calories than I would eat to rotate them through supply. What are some food ideas that I can stock pile?

Who has suppressed an ak?

I shoot the AK better at all ranges than any other rifle including .308 stuff. I prefer the reliability and would like to square away different purpose built AK's and later on build one longer distance rifle. I believe a suppressor is an extremly important force multiplyer since if fired upon, I wou...

Suppressors value in SHTF? Most important thing?

How valuable is a suppressor in a SHTF situation? I read that they are worth their weight in gold since they are rare and everybody wants one in a SHTF situation. Maybe I will carry suppressors instead of gold/ silver.

Re: Survival .22 to suppress? Henry Survival, Marlin Mapoose

I don't think I've ever had a jam with my Papoose other than with weak ammo. The barrel is too thin for a proper shoulder but enough for threads so it will need an adapter or bushing pressed on for proper threading. My smith has been wanting me to SBR the Papoose for a while and I have been conside...

I have a Ruger .22 auto that I love. I am excited about my .22 can that is coming and want a .22 pistol to throw it on. What is the most field reliable .22 pistol that I can suppress? Should I go with that new Ruger .22 pistol that has the factory threads? Guess I cant suppress a revolver?

The AK does suppress well. My 7.62x39mm Arsenal is pretty quite. What can and mount are you running? My fear was a baffle strike because everyone tells me that it is unsafe to suppress an AK because the bore or something is not consentric. If I could safely suppress an AK I would be really happy.
