  1. Firearms General Discussion
    Finally looking in to setting up for reloading at probably the worst time. I feel I need the equipment and experience though. I am looking at the Hornady Lock-N-Load Classic Reloading Kit since I have a significant amount of credit at a place that carries it. It is the only one they have in...

  4. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum

  12. Pistol and Revolver Forum
    I am thinking of purchasing my first ever firearm, and I'm thinking it should be a small pistol for defensive purposes. Ideally it would be something both myself and my gf could use at home should the need ever arise. Also, I go backpacking often and have known many that carry into the woods as...

    Hi there! Rick from the UK here. Been dabbling in preparedness ever since Y2k, but fell away a bit after it was a no-show. Now with the approaching solar storms, and crazy predictions of 2012 I decided it wouldn't hurt to get back into it again. I expect I'll be asking all sorts of wierd and...
