  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    What are you doing to prep for Nov 2020? Getting any new toys that may be restricted? Preparing for a downturn of the economy? Growing your faith? Drawing your line in the sand and preparing mentally?

    I am looking for some information for an article. How plentiful is 22 long rifle in your area? Please take a second to vote. Local walmart has shelves full of 22 long rifle; this is everything from Remington thunderbolt, to Winchester, to CCI, to Federal. For the first time in a long time...

    While stockpiling survival gear for a long term SHTF / TEOTWAWKI situation, I think it is important to pause, review, and then move forward. It does no good to stockpile the same thing over and over, while overlooking other essential preps. The changing of the seasons, a new year, or every 3 –...

    While reviewing my 22 long rifle stockpile last night, I realized that I am mostly buying 2 brand names - Federal and 1 box of Winchester. The next couple of bricks I buy will probably be Remington and a box of Winchester. How my preps are setup @ 75% of my ammunition at stored at home. @ 25%...

    I am thinking of getting a .22 long rifle. I want it for target shooting and small game. My question is.... semi auto, lever action or bolt, which do you prefer? Also what would be the advantages or disadvantages to a .17? I live in Florida so most of our areas are scrubb palmetto and pine. I...

    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...

    http://74.208.11.125/admin/product_details.php?itemID=45989 Anyone own or used to own one of these? I am having some issues with one. The rifle was gifted to me and I don't think it had been fired or cleaned in 35 years. After disassembling oil/cleaning and reassembling I took it to my range...

    Not much really new here, but I had a bunch of data compiled as a handy reference and thought I would share it. I can't guarantee that its comprehensive because things are changing all the time. * Lever action rifles, single shot rifles, revolvers: .22 Short / .22 Long / .22 Long Rifle (LR)...

    I'm a guy. I like power tools. I like high power rifles. But then there's the matter of reason. Guns go bang. Not just that, let's face it, they actually go BOOM!!! Whether in some mountain holler, over flatland, or down city streets, sounds travel further than you ever wanted them to go...

    I've seen a lot of posts saying that the 22lr is the best gun in a survival, non-combat situation and people state that they could kill larger animals with proper shot placement, such as deer. I would guess that the size of ammo would be factored in and the amount that can be carried and...

Just wondering if anyone knew where to get cheap...

    Which do you use and why? Why not buy all four? 1. Subsonic, which also includes "target" or "match" loads, at nominal speeds below 1,100 ft/s (340 m/s). 2. Standard-velocity: 1,000–1,135 ft/s (300–346 m/s). Common velocities are around 1,125 ft/s (343 m/s). 3. High-velocity: 1,200–1,310...

    I have an old single shot Winchester Model 62. It is very accurate for being an extremely old weapon. (Thanks Dad for keeping it clean.) This isn't the only the .22 I own but it is by far much more accurate than my newer Ruger 10/22. It also is capable of firing a myriad of different types of...

    Yesterday I picked up a brick of Federal 22 long rifle and a box of Federal 30-30 150 grain. The Federal 22 long rifle was $2 cheaper then the Remington. The Remington 550 brick was $12.97, Federal was $10.97. If you are thinking of getting some 22 ammo, you might want to get some federal...

    What kind of bulk 22 lr ammo is everyone stocking, and why that brand? Is it just me or is the quality of remington 22lr ammo going down hill? Right now I have about 1,500+ of Remington 22lr. My next brick might be a box of federal, just because I want to mix it up a little.
