Re: Hello from the South West.

Another thing to consider about firearms (or any weapon for that matter) - its very unlikely that here in the UK the rule of law will breakdown for any length of time and when it is restored after a few days then you need to be able to justify (probably in court) your actions and show that you only ...

Re: Varusteleka.com - Finnish surplus site

Yep, bought a smock made from a surplus Polish army blanket. Excellent product, flat rate of £6 shipping and speedy delivery.
Very tempted by their Finnish army sleeping mat with ahem, "wings". But ~£50 is hard to justify. Still, Xmas is coming.

Re: Food in your emergency bag

I'm really quite sad and keep a 72hour supply of tinned food & water, tea, coffee in the car along with a solid fuel stove. Along with shovel , foul weather gear, torch, knife, etc and a book in case I'm in for a long wait. I like the idea of a tin of rice pudding though - will be adding that! As a ...

Rizla papers on relatively minor cuts are really effective as a clotting agent too.

Re: Coal briquettes

And while we're on the subject of using waste materials - sawdust in an egg box then the fat out of the grill pan emptied over it makes an outstanding firestarter.

Re: Coal briquettes

Another option for waste paper/magazines/newspapers is instead of mushing them & using the pulp to make briquettes is instead to just roll them up really tightly and slip a metal ring over them and throw them on the fire, much simpler & quicker.

Re: Bunker. Norfolk. £25k

Sadly all very true. I had a pal who was a policeman in a nearby city. Obviously had his fair share of bother but always had back up. He then moved to being the only policeman in a small rural town and ended up fighting with the same lads at closing time every Friday night 'cos they knew the next ne...

Re: do you have any strange health remedies?

Hi Deeps, seems wild using glue but its actually pretty basic and used in lots of situations. For example scalp lacerations and I've also used it to seal a 10mm laceration on a child's eyelid (in a&e I hasten to add - not just randomly in the street :lol: ). Really it depends on how deep & where the...

Re: The most unusual thing used as food

We used to shoot the wild rabbits out the back and eat them. My daughters are early teens now and I'm not "allowed" to. Ffs. :-(
