So you're the raider?

Do you really think that any Preppers on here are only prepping for one thing and nothing else? My theory has been and always will be prep for total grid down scenario because if you are prepared for that than you prepared for just about everything else. Doubt too many others on here are that much different. Some may focus on Radio active, biological, or hurricanes but they are all way more prepared than the average Joe for just about anything.

Troll threads are an intelligence test.

Some pass - some fail.

Some crave attention and the opportunity to rant so bad, they don't care if the thread is trolling......

I have an ArmaLite AR10A2 and have 45acp & 9mm and .223/556 too

I have an Old Model .30 Carbine Blackhawk, any idea if a .327 cylinder might be had for it???
