Re: Are Canucks Good Shooters?

I don't think 3,540 meters is going to be beat any time soon!

Re: My Battle Rifle project

Yes, it can be a mixed bag. For me I like the: Handgun - Glock 17 (S.A.) 9mm Shotgun - Mossberg 500 Mariner (Pump) 12 ga mag Short-Range Assault - MP5 (A) 9mm (the MAC-10 in 9mm is acceptable but not in .45) Medium Range Assault - M16/AR15 (A/S.A.) 5.56mm NATO (.223) Sniper (up to 800 M) - Remingto...

Re: What are your alternative light sources?

Wayne, I have a few solar lights that certainly light up entire rooms but wouldn't necessarily be bright enough to read or do meticulous work. I also have my Duracell power pack with a solar panel. I can certainly use that for days on end with a table lamp running a LED bulb. I have a couple of oil ...

Re: What have you added to your preps this week?

Thanks or sharing the book. I'm looking forward to reading it. I had the chance to meet Dave Grossman and attend his lecture, it was extremely interesting.

Re: Flu epidemic

I think that beyond vaccination (I get it every year), proper hygiene is the most important. Assuming you can't avoid crowds, keep distance from people so that sneeze droplets can't make it to your own face. When in public, avoid touching your face at all cost, wash your hands regularly and use hand...

Re: Adjustable beam lasers

Wayne, What are your thoughts on lasers for handguns in self defense at home? You'd think it could offer some assistance when shooting behind cover/concealment or weak-hand? I've seen Crimson Trace lasers where the advantage being that it requires no extra manipulation and there is no need to change...

Re: On Sale This Week

Lowes has 4250W generators on sale until Jan 10th at 50% off ($300 instead of $600). Not too familiar with the brand but reviews all around seem good. As a backup to a backup plan, I think this is decent deal. https://www.lowes.ca/generators/firman-p03501-gas-powered-4450-watt-portable-generator_g27...

Re: Home defense

Wayne, Thanks for sharing your tips on this subjects. Curious about your point #3. I certainly believe in being a grey man, but having been through a few crisis of the likes of the Quebec Ice Storm, I see there is a lot more complexity to this. For example, after a short while, I might be the only o...
