Just Remember . . It Wasn't Raining When Noah Built His Ark...
Will Earth Survive
Is it ironic that Liberals stop being so liberal when The SHTF on them and they have rude awakenings?
I am talking about Katrina. My Aunt lived in New Orleans during the time of Katrina. Well let me say she was a far leftist Democrat who hated the 2nd Amendment and thought the even mentioning of guns was disgusting and immoral. Right after Katrina she, like many Liberals, was unprepared for the after math of the ‘storm’ when reality hit her. Marauders broke into her apartment, stole her things, and as you guessed it were in the process of her rape. She was extremely lucky her neighbor, 70 y/o little lady, heard the commotion and fired a warning shot with her 12 gauge. The Marauders escaped through the windows with whatever they could carry. Do I feel happy this happened to my aunt? HELL NO! But I tried many times to convince her to prepare, but she claimed I was spreading some far right wing paranoia. My aunt moved away to Miami, currently owns a gun and every couple of months goes to the shooting range to practice. I have not pressed the matter much with her but I can say she has let go of a good amount of her old die hard liberal stance. Anyone else think this will NEVER EVER happen to them and the right is just paranoid?
Stumbled upon this while perusing the Marlin firearms site.
Any opinions on this rifle? It’s designed to shoot .357 Magnum rounds. The owner’s manual is a little iffy if you can shoot .38 Specials out of it. Is there any problem doing so?
How much do these sell for?

*I do not own any .40 S&W ammunition due to the fact that those firearms were purchased in the though of desperately scavenging for ammo, but I think I have enough back ups as to the side arm situation. My main side arm is the Glock 20, then the Glock 21, then the Glock 17.
In the garage, I have:
2 palates of toilet paper, heavily wrapped in plastic to avoid contamination
500 gallons of water in air tight containers that hold 4 gallons per container
Over 600 cans of fruit, veggies, beans, spam, and other foods, all used up by their expiration date and replaced immediately following their use
I’m strongly considering a remington 700 SPS stainless steel in .308 or .30-06. I’ve heard some good recommendations towards Savage arms, and for that a maybe a 10fp in .308, or something else in .30-06. I want to know which round will be more suitable farther than 300 yrds, which is more common, and accurate. And if you have any experience with the rifles listed above, i would be grateful to get some feedback about your experiences in rifles, rounds, or both.
I live in Canada and I have been wondering which to get, a SVT40, SKS, Mosin Nagant, Yugo M-48, and Mauser M-03 so, which of these or maybe others would be a good gun p.s. I live in Ontario near Lake Erie so this would be my situation area
I want a military looking gun though bro :p does the SKS come with the oil can and ammo pouches and all the great stuff that the Mosin Nagant would? Also I am a huge bolt action fan even in a zombie or SHTF situation :3
Please include url and price.
want under 500 but under 600 maybe
Which direction would you head if you had to “get the heck outta dodge” in a SHTF situation? like z-day?
I get what you’re saying about the hypothermia Church… the brain is an organ and the cold causes organs to fail… stage 3 hypothermia:
As the temperature decreases further physiological systems falter and heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure all decreases. This results in an expected HR in the 30s with a temperature of 28 °C (82 °F).
Difficulty in speaking, sluggish thinking, and amnesia start to appear; inability to use hands and stumbling is also usually present. Cellular metabolic processes shut down. Below 30 °C (86 °F), the exposed skin becomes blue and puffy, muscle coordination becomes very poor, walking becomes almost impossible, and the person exhibits incoherent/irrational behavior including terminal burrowing or even a stupor. Pulse and respiration rates decrease significantly, but fast heart rates (ventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation) can occur. Major organs fail. Clinical death occurs. Because of decreased cellular activity in stage 3 hypoth
