A company that sells food storage buckets from very small to 30 litre. I have not bought from them yet so I can't vouch for them.

I've bought from this company recently -
Leifheit jars for home preserving
https://www.the-emporium.co.uk/stora...pid=6&pageno=1

I plan to buy from them again. I'm not real keen on the oval shape of the jars, but it's the only kind I've found that are similar to what I'm used to for home canning. I've already used four of the jars for some pickles.

A podcast I find interesting is the Survival Podcast - Jack Spirko who does it covers all sorts of topics and you can get the back episodes too. thesurvivalpodcast.com

It was listening to that, and reading the boards on that forum, that made me search things on Youtube and find Kev's videos, and from there came to these forums where I am much more active.

You can use a search thingy to find episodes that interest you. He often talks about politics (because they influence what will happen to people in the US) so if that doesn't interest you, do try out some of the episodes that look more appealing.

50cc absorbers- pack of 15 4.00

300cc absorbers- pack of 6 4.00

http://shop.conserva.de/epages/es116...stoff-Absorber

with the delivery price from conserva.de i would suggest it would be better as a group buy 16,75 EU - PACKET (up to 300kg)

the suggested amount is 1500cc of absorbers for a 5 gallon bucket

5 x 300cc
30 x 50cc

frankly i cheat and use a vacuum packer to vacuum pack 1kg long grain rice in a embossed 200mm x300mm bag with 1 x50cc absorber i place as many of these in the bucket and pack loose rice around the packets and put 1 x300cc absorber on top with afew bay leaves then seal the bucket.

make sure to write down details of what you have packed and when you packed them on the outside, also the recommended use by date of the product . sounds basic but stops you wondering whats in there and opening up the bucket, the use by date is as a guide for rotation of stock and use. store where it is cool with no wide temperature changes and long grain white rice for example should store fine for a decade at least.

a word of caution about brown rice, from a nutrition stand point it is by far the best rice to put into storage, but it has one flaw, The essential oil in the germ of the rice is very susceptible to oxidation and soon goes rancid.

Hi Wolfen:

I have just read that Bay leaves in grains, flour and legumes protects them from bug-infestation! (from Emergency Food Storage and Preperation by Peggy Layton)

Regards,

JB.

here's a sit which is increibly useful for anyone with an fac for.22 caliber rounds!

http://www.deactivated-guns.co.uk/li.../prod_396.html

http://www.deactivated-guns.co.uk/li.../prod_197.html

not only do they have things like ar-7 survival rifles, they also have german mp5's chambered in .22 making it entirely uk legal and something i havent managed to find anywhere else!
although these can only be purchased with a valid firearms certificate obviously theyre still a great buy, can even get working red-dot sights, lasers, and silencers as extras if you want them


and yes before anyone points out the sight says deactivated guns, this is because they deal in primarily deactivated guns, however, they also sell several live fire weapons such as the ones abbove if you have an appropriate firearms licence

Yes UK vet, I have one of those GSG-5 (german sport guns) PK's. Me and my wife just took it to the range, and had a blast! For something chambered in .22lr, it's a fun plinker.

We also just put the new Colt AR15 .22 dedicated on layaway at our local gun shop. Can't wait to get it to the range!

yes it is indeed particularly useful for the uk with our draconian gun laws meaning in most instances you can only get a .22 as a gun and no military calibres
