Shotgun shells was the only thing I could even justify the cost of reloading on for what I shoot now. The Lee press will be paid for in 2 flats of shells since the cost of loading is literally half just buying the cheap $5 a box stuff. Though my gun club does pin shoots and I might get into that so reloading 45 or 460 rowland might be a thing I'd want to do.

I've got my 9mm reloads down to just under .09 cents a round... which would have been awesome 3 years ago when it was .30cents a round, but now that you can buy reman for .13cents, it almost doesn't make sense when you can sell the brass off after.

Ordered some aqua-tainers (7 gallon each) from Blains. On sale thru 3/20. Opted to get the smaller containers due to having no way to fill the big guys in my basement. If the first batch are decent, I'll order more.

Lifestraws or their other products are on my radar next. I will probably get a couple straws for bug out and either their mission or family pack for bug in.

I also am looking at some kind of stove top propane grill. Some built ins can run on natural gas or propane. Seems like an insurance disaster though if you had a fire during testing. I am looking at something indoor for security. I dont want to advertise i have food by cooking outdoors on the grill.

As far as I know, nearly all built-ins can use propane or natural gas.
It is normally just a matter of changing the nozzles depending on the gas you are burning.
I use this sawyer filter when I backpack:



I like it because I can put it inline with my camelback and the filtration is completely passive. I can also use it as a gravity filter that way.

I will look into this. I like the gravity feed option. It would be similar to the lifestraw mission/family kit.

Nice! I like me some shorty AK

They're really fun at night...



I've since put a Bulgy 4pc on it, so it doesn't light up the whole AO...

Prison but King Obama granted me a pardon so I could be with y'all again.

Tell me about Form 1 cans. I need some stuff to occupy me while I wait on my Form 4 goodies.

^That's some serious flash. Do not want. I'd be blind and deaf after a burst from that at night.
He must be giving up a lot of velocity since so much expansion seems to be happening outside of the barrel.

Kittery Trading Post is taking forever to get a Savage MKII FV-SR in stock for me. Its like $10 bucks cheaper from them than ordering one online and then paying the transfer fee. I'm trying to build a baby precision rifle, something that's capable of sub MOA but will take serious effort and skill to shoot good groups at 300 yards. Its going to cost me $250 for the gun and $190 for the stock I want. I'm trying to find something else in around this price range with a threaded barrel either needing or not needing a new stock.

I have a form 1 sitting with the ATF but I only submitted it yesterday even though I paid a month ago because the damn site crashed after I hit submit and I didnt notice. The huge 9" long 22lr solvent trap is sitting on my desk just waiting to be drilled and mounted onto that gun.

That night shot is with no flash suppression, it's vastly improved with the Bulgarian 'beer can'. It's a 10.25" bbl, so ~6" shorter than a standard AK. Definitely loses a few hundred FPS.

I also have a 'solvent trap' sitting around waiting to become a form 1 rimfire suppressor. If I can ever stop finding other things to spend the $200 on...

Better get on it quick before you need fingerprints and such for everyone on your trust.
