As a .22 I don't consider it especially useful but for the money it's pretty neat.
Yeah, it'a a 795, I haven't gotten around to shooting it yet. But i will in the next week or two!

I worked over 86 hours this week and over 150 in the last two weeks. It wasn't by choice, but working those kind of hours over the next few weeks will let me pay off my house when I do get a break from work. The only debt I'll have after that is the mortgage on a rental house I own. I don't count that as debt and I might get it paid off as well after a couple of months of working like this.

One of the best things for prepping any of us can do is to not have any debt. It wouldn't help much for a major SHTF, but it would make a difference in a serious depression.

I bought copies of the 2013 Physicians' Desk Reference (PDR), The PDR Medical Dictionary, and The PDR Guide to Terrorism Response: A Resource for Physicians, Nurses, Emergency Medical Services, Law Enforcement, Firefighters. More than 5,900 pages and a new CD ROM of medical and drug information goodness for less than $30.

Considering that I'm allergic to mammals, I should probably do the same!

I just hate plucking chickens, and I meant that literally.

I am not saying this to be a dick; are the 3 books on a CD or are they
hard copies? If they are on disc a have you consided how to access these
references if you have no power/electricity to run your computer for
extended periods of time?

I am just allergic to stupid mammals...

Looking for a 3 phase genset so I can run my machine tools off grid.
My single phase genset will not run my rotary phase converter.

Not really prepping but have been cutting and splitting wood for next
winter, first 2 photos, this last tree had some nice straight grain wood
so I purchased on of those Granberg Alaskan Chainsaw milling attachments

Built a survival sling shot bow. One arrow for game, one arrow for fish. The fish arrow has a fishing line hookup. The sling shot can be used as a reg sling shot by flipping down the feather biscuit that holds the arrows. I have purchase a 1000 steel bearing for slingshot use.

Neat idea, how accurate is it compared to a compound bow? What range?
