Re: Buying my first gas mask

As Yorkshire Andy said... Plus, I would go for the GSR over the S10. Having used both, I rate the GSR over the S10 as it has twin filters allowing you to change one at a time.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 4

Hello everyone, Been a few weeks. I've been on a nice walk about in France whilst my wife tried to kill the credit card shopping with my parents. Weather was amazing, almost a little too hot!

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 4

Waders are evil! Fell over once trying fly fishing. Luckily I wasn't too deep at that moment. But it took all my effort to get out as everyone was too busy laughing their heads off. Never went back... On a change of subject. I done a basic fire fighting course with the local fire brigade (done throu...
