    As we all know just about all types of ammo is sold out. For the first time in my life I can not find 30-30 Winchester, or even 270 Winchester. You want to know what I can find? 280 Remington / 7mm Express. In the mid-1990s I asked for and received as a Christmas present a Remington model...

    Planning a hunting / camping trip on some public hunting lands on a local river. Area is a mix of pine, oak, sweet gum... etc. Will be hunting small and medium sized game. This means rabbit, squirrel, deer, and wild pigs. Pick two guns for my trip: Remington 700 bolt action in 280...

    Someone recommend a good optic for a Marlin 336 lever action in 30-30 Winchester. I am currently looking at a Burris Fullfield II 2x-7x-35mm. Over the decades my "go to" optics have been Nikon. They have provided years of reliability on various rifles my family owns. Then there is the...

    So my plan for hunting small game in a SHTF scenario was to use my .223 and go for headshots on bunnies and squirrels, which obviously isn't ideal. I also have a 9mm. Also not ideal. Those calibers will both decimate game that small, and they're also extremely loud, which in a WROL situation is...

    Most preppers are stockpiling some kind of ammunition. Usually it is the military calibers that are stockpiled and 22 long rifle. But what about hunting grade ammunition? How much hunting grade ammunition are you stockpiling? How much ammunition do you usually use in a hunting season...

    Here are some of my hunting tools and photos ..... [All these animals were legally hunted and as far as possible fully utilized as well] [Also see another one of my true life stories called 'My big Black Mamba scare' [post 4070] under the thread 'creepy stories from the outdoors']- and also...

    Not sure if this is the right spot for this, but...Here's the question. What animal do you think would be the most important after SHTF, for food purposes? Something you would raise, something wild? Specifically which one, and why?

    Its post SHTF, you and your family need something to eat, so the yall head out to a local river. The dogs are let loose, a few minutes later the dogs corner up a 200 pound boar hog. The boar hog is loaded in the boat and brought back home. A pen is hastily assembled out of whatever materials...

    Lets say some kind of SHTF / TEOTWAWKI situation happens tomorrow, what would your long term farming, gardening and hunting plans be? Do you plan on hunting for most of your food from livestock, gardening, hunting or a combination of food sources? Long term survival plans after SHTF One of...

    Would the ultimate Bug Out Location be a Homestead? Instead of trying to maintain a home in an urban area, and a remote camp, why not build a homestead and make it your Bug Out Location? This way your time and money are not divided between two separate places. For a lot of people, living in a...

    Some kind of SHTF / TEOTWAWKI event happens, what are some basic skills every survivalist should know? Trying to balance work, family life and prepping means there is not a lot of free time. Kids birthday parties, work a garden, go to the shooting range, tend to the fruit trees, go fishing...
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hey guys, I just wanted to share a few thoughts about ammo stockpiles. I can't tell you how many times I've seen people post that they've got 50K rounds of ammo, and need more. I've seen various numbers, estimates, and arguments for how much you need, but I wanted to do my own figuring and see...
  14. Rifle Forum
    Now I know there's plenty of other threads about this, but I like the idea of having one of my own. That being said... This summer when my next birthday comes around I plan on buying a new rifle. I recently saw the Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle in 308. Right off the bat, this rifle looks COOL. I...
  15. Firearms General Discussion
    Recently I asked the people on the SurvivalistBoards facebook page what rifle calibers they hunt with. I made sure to specify what calibers they currently own and use, and not what calibers they plan on buying. The purpose of the question was to generate a survey of calibers that people are...
  16. Firearms General Discussion
    Hunting season is here, and I have been thinking about my firearm setup. How many people have more then 1 rifle per caliber? What is the point of stockpiling ammo, and then have 1 rifle that could break? Sure people have spare parts, but spare parts do not help your buddies hunt with you. Part...
  17. Firearms General Discussion
    There are already strings concerning air rifles; and true, some of these little fellows ain't so little. But in the realm of firearms, not a whole lot is discussed about low-power firearm ammunition. I would like to hear other folk's experiences with CB caps, sub sonic ammunition, target .22...
  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Now it just dawned on me that I've read a lot of threads on after a SHTF there will be no food left to hunt in the bush. Now as I understand it there are millions of juicy pork chops running around the US and they breed like there's no tomorrow. So wouldn't this be a viable food source at any...
