Re: PREPPING - Yes - No - Why !

Your friend should be careful about buying too much canned goods and storing them too long. Years ago I worked for a grocer in North Queensland, tropical weather, hot and very humid. I know they shouldn't have been there but some of the cans on his shelves were so rusted they were lucky to hold tog...

Re: rifles

My Christmas present to me was a new carbine. Specifically a brand new model 1927 A1 Thompson complete with a 50 rd drum and a 30 rd stick. Spent a little extra and had it come in a violin case. Damn is it fun to shoot. Accurate enough at 50 yds to put 5 rds in a single torn hole. Have to spend a lo...

Re: Moonshiners, are they for real

I reckon being a reality tv show actor pays a whole lot better than being a "moonshiner". I never met a real shiner that didnt have another job. Most of the ones I knew back in the day, were farmers, raising tobacco, corn, etc... Farming didnt pay all the bills so that's why these guys made and sol...
