  1. Coronavirus
    To mask or not to mask is hot topic in the world right now. Understandably, there are a lot of endless mask debates clogging up the Chinese virus thread and other non-mask threads. The arguments are many and seem to go 'round and 'round without any converts. Non-participants in the debates are...

    Got a NIB Scott FRR, its similar to my GSR but uses 40mm filters instead. Pretty happy about it.
  3. Coronavirus
    Went to the local dollar to pick up a bag of dog food - yes I was wearing PPE mask. While checking out I told the lady they should have plexiglass between them and the customer. The lady told me dollar store would not buy the glass, and she did not care if she caught it. I almost said...
  4. Coronavirus
    What kind of alternate reality do managers and upper management live in? Europe alone hit 100,000 dead, and the worlds largest retailer finally tells employees to wear mask. Then again, didn't the CDC say wearing mask in public did not help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Why do companies...
  5. Coronavirus
    Rant ... OK, until now the most common PPE abuse I've seen is wearing safety glasses on top of ones head in a manufacturing plant. The other day I saw 4 people in proximity. Only one was not wearing their mask below their nose. We've all seen leaders do the same. They complain the PPE is...

    Why has the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention been hindering our response to Coronavirus? Here are a couple of examples: Patient in Washington State who displayed Coronavirus symptoms. Because she had not been in contact with a known case she was not tested. turns out she was one of...
  7. Coronavirus
    Why aren't companies providing employees with PPE? If an employee gets sick with Coronavirus, I wonder if workers comp could be held responsible? Even hospitals are not providing nurses with N95 mask. The excuse, the CDC has not recommended medical providers use N95 mask. Went by a big box...

  9. Coronavirus
    I'm starting to see and hear a lot of ugly sounding sentiments regarding any non medical person having or wearing a medical grade mask. I'm in a Facebook group where I regularly hear "not N95s, those are/should be for first responders!". I'm in CA so masks are getting to be commonplace here, and...

    Looking for an alterative to N95? This is what I am doing - order a cotton mask off Ebay that has a pouch for a filter. The filter will be a shop towel. https://www.businessinsider.com/homemade-mask-using-hydro-knit-shop-towel-filters-better-2020-4 What I did, I got on Ebay and ordered two...
  11. Coronavirus
    Every time I go to the grocery store, or even go to work, things seem to be getting a more serious. Today on the way home from work I saw people in their vehicle with mask on. Not a big deal but nice to see people wearing them. Stores counting how many people are going in and out. Cars lined...
  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Today on local public radio I heard an announcement of a local guy's arrest. Charges included possession of an illegal firearm, AND illegal possession of body armor. I had never heard of a bullet proof vest being illegal before. A web search seems to reveal that armor is legal for civilians who...
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    A friend and I got into a conversation this week-end about defending one's home or BOL after the SHTF and can you do it. The truth is, probably not many of us! Many (not referring to this site necessarily) think they are battle hardy souls that would keep the bad guys away....chances...
  14. Pistol and Revolver Forum
    I'm sure this thread has been posted countless times, but I'm new to the boards so please bear with me. Also, I know that everyone has an opinion on what the "best" model/caliber is, but the answer to that question generally is whatever caliber is best for their personal wants/needs. However...
