    Earthquake

    I was awake and at my desk when it rumbled through. I could certainly feel it and watched a calendar sway back and forth for a good bit. I've lived here 12 years and felt tremors before but this was certainly the strongest.

    Working the Ammo Deals

    Yeah and I had to go dig my boxes out of the trash! I'll learn to read the instructions first the next time LOL. I submitted online 12/2 and of course they are still "pending review". I imagine they received an incredibly large amount of rebate applications. All in time...

    Shades of "One Second After" (book)

    Thank you Monkey. I'll look around. I like the idea of having one put back as well.

    I intended to ask about a solar charger the when you posted this...then work happened LOL. Do you (or anyone) have a solar charger that would serve this purpose that you would recommend?

    I don't know how long this sale will last, but Surefire has the Sidekick at $29.99 as I type this. That's a steal folks! https://www.surefire.com/sidekick.html

    What Does TN Allow?

    There us some sage advice and solid information in this post. Take heed of what Randy is saying here. At 65 years of age and in very particular circumstances I may well be viewed differently in my use of an impact tool. Be that's a definite maybe... the context of the particular circumstances, the evident nature of the events, disparity of force, my articulation of the event...many aspects come into play. I carry an impact tool for very specific circumstances and use. At this time in my life I could only envision that use being in a lethal force encounter where the access, if available, of another more effective tool is not an option. I am a civilian and an old geezer... I would probably be judged less harshly if I used a firearm in a lethal force encounter. I hope I never find out. Randy, CHL, and I also took one of the only classes (2 that I know of) that Craig Douglas (SouthNarc) ever taught called "Blackjacks & Saps". Craig's background is as a life long student of martial arts (not Do Jo based BS) and as an LEO with several years either undercover or "on top" running undercover narcotic agents. The focus of the class was on impact tool capabilities and the lethal force implications were clearly demonstrated and discussed. Their use cannot be taken lightly imho. Excellent post Randy!

    Good SHTF Survival Fiction Books

    Bumping this thread back to life as there are so many incredible book recommendations. Thanks to @hipower I have been on a D.J.Molles trek for some time now. He's a really solid author with an entertaining and easily read style. Hipower , being a great guy, did a bit of "horse-trading" with me and I started with "The Remaining" series. https://www.amazon.com/Remaining-D-J-Molles-author/dp/0356503453/ref=pd_bxgy_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=0356503453&pd_rd_r=be47db81-f945-11e8-9ac6-bf091afce61c&pd_rd_w=sGN9q&pd_rd_wg=iRdzf&pf_rd_p=6725dbd6-9917-451d-beba-16af7874e407&pf_rd_r=PBPAG2P2B7ZSFJDA2V22&psc=1&refRID=PBPAG2P2B7ZSFJDA2V22 I've also read "Wolves" and the series "A Grower's War". I guess I am a bonifide D.J.Molles fan. I've also recently read Volume 10 of the A. American Going Home survivalist series "Home Coming". It's a bit formulaic but still entertaining. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0996696059/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Please don't let this thread die my friends. Share what you've been reading. It doesn't have to be "Survival" oriented you know.

    I actually picked up 2 of these from the Surefire website on the 26th. Surefire was selling them for $19.95 each. I didn't know I would like them so much or I would have purchased several.
  10. I'm not familiar with Double Dogs. Was this in Knoxville @Erik88 ? Disclaimer: I don't drink, but I don't fiddle with my damn gun either. Good grief... Do we know if this tool even had a permit? I did a quick search and didn't see this incident pop up. Maybe that's good as this would indeed be fodder for the anti-gun side.

    Shades of "One Second After" (book)

    Great point. I have several kerosene lanterns and spare wicks set aside. We've used them after hurricanes in the past. They give off reliable, decent light but it's remarkable the amount of heat they generate. It's quite noticeable when the temp is 90+ degrees with matching humidity LOL. Having options is good though. Have you tried one of the ThorFire's? If so, what's your opinion of their functionality? Brightness, etc? And Thanks for the link.

    Well that works out pretty well. I have my library card laying out and planned to stop by Thursday to renew it. Thank you.

    Shades of "One Second After" (book)

    This. I think my expectations were set too high for One Year After. Still I feel kinda obligated to complete the series...so maybe I'll throw it in my Prime basket.

    How is The Final Day Garufa? Thought about picking it up...

    New Home

    Welcome to TGO and TN! I'm babysitting (safety officer) at the indoor range at ORSA as I type this. Beautiful day and everyone is shooting outdoors. I already did some rifle and handgun. PM me if you want to come out to ORSA (know you're a member). Meeting & greeting should land you a sponsor. Jamie
