    I too remember lusting after one, but it was beyond my reach as a second class petty officer.

    Was it as good as they say?
    Even Mel Tappan said it was pretty awesome.


    You know they kept referring to Reba's HK-91 as an on-going bit in the other movies?

    BERT in first sequel...I knew it was over when she asked i send her the HK-91.

    BERT to his son in the latest movie....Hey, just where did you get that HK-91?
    Where do you think? Mom gave it to me?

    As for me, I will take my suppressed and modified FAL.
    Sounds like a pistol instead of a .308.
    I don't even need ears.

    ...nor a bayonet.
    After a few rounds the suppressor is like a branding iron.

    My apologies for the "gun porn".

    You should not have mention the copies of hustler that could result in looters attacking you

    Captain for each person its differnt I just included everything I could think of. For instance I live on the coast of fl. Hurricanes are my main concern and looting then a economic emergency. while. tsunamis are a danger on any coast line or as large mentor strike theres very little I can do about that

    Being prepared for natural disasters like having enough food and fresh water and some ammo to protect yourself and your loved ones, yeah, that makes sense. Having gas and a generator and enough food and water in supply and/or the ability to convert to potable water for a month or so isn't silly at all.

    What's silly is stockpiling a basement full of ammo and guns and buckets of dried whatever in case of armageddon. At that point what's the point? Someone, like the thousands or millions of others who want your resources and are more equipped to take them will just do so. You're just stockpiling for them.

    In a major SHTF you need to be practical, resourceful and ready enough to produce or gather the resources you need for the longer run. Sitting in a bunker eating dried whatever for the next year is just fear tactics from the soldier of fortune outfits trying to sell you junk you'll never use.

    There are a lot of strategies to this outside of stockpiling. Gathering wood for fuel, first aid, salvage, sustainability, rationing, obtaining new resources.

    Just throwing money and stockpiling isn't prepping, being able to survive, think, cooperate are I think key abilities that will serve better. Common sense, not a lot of people have it so they stockpile.
    From the majority of posts here captain you should see most of the people here are not building and stocking bunkers but are just everyday people who are prepared for short term emergencys that can aleffect their lives

    The tactic is to actually EAT your survival food and not just stick it away in a closet.

    This way you also find out what is yummy and what is yuck.

    Mountain House Beef Stroganoff(sp) = yummy

    MRE Star Cheese Tortellini = yuck....the only spice they used as basil and waay too much of it.
    This crap instantly became trade goods.
    Spices and sauces last almost forever if properly stored, and both are absolute necessities if you have MREs. Some Ray's red hot and tobasco can make mud taste ok.
    I'm baaaaaaaaaaack!

    Yea im big on spices .I always have 3 to five hot sauses on hand from very mild to kinda hot and lots of salt pepper corns and paprika some balsamic vinegar etc. Its not so much for prep but day to day use. Thats one of the true prep principles have a large pantry and rotate you on hand stock.
    I use a lot of tomato sauses but they dont store will i keep several cans on hand but use it regulary and replace as I do..

    Im lucky our home has two large pantry closets in the kitchen and hall capable of holding a lot of food .

    I always wanted a fnfal but went with the ar 15 due to parts availability and interchangeable parts ease of working on it accuracy the controls and cost of .223 ammo and ease of reloading.
    But the fn is much harder hitting . I do have a 3006 but its a pump hunting rifle
