    Good point. :cool: Sadly this is how the majority think w/o actually getting to know what the man believes and supports in. Amazing how many people when answering tests about what they felt was important and how they stood on the issues ended up being a Ron Paul supporter. But I guess he's just a crazy loon if you get your 'info' from the MSM. :D

    I liked Paul up until he made that comment about Chris Kyle.

    No prob. How are you guys storing fuel cans? I like the rotopax, but I don't like the price.

    This was the clear winner in group size during my test through a Mossberg 18" cylinder choke barrel. I've posted links to my blog post about it before. If I wasn't stocked up already with this stuff, I'd pick up another 100 rounds.

    i dont have any fuel stored..but i see you are in SE GA like myself so you have access to real gas probably(we do here in brunswick) its ethanol free and keeps way longer. id like to have a rotopax or a pony keg for my bike so i could do long distance trips longer between fuel stops.. if you search you can find surplus fuel cans and even brand new repop nato cans(but you gotta read the reviews some arent worth buying)

    Great info! Sorry if this is repetitive, but what other shells did you test it against?

    I've got a huge stock of Hornady Critical Defense w/VersaTite (told it's the same as FliteControl). Also have some of the cheap, junky Winchester "Military" buckshot for SHTF/fun.

    I hated that stock for my 10/22. Cheaply made and hade to be modified multiple times with a Drexel to even work correctly. Plus, using a banana clip was a b*tch. But....It looked cool as hell. I eventually changed over to a hogue rubberized full stock, with a bipod, fluted heavy barrel with threaded end for suppressor and a red dot 4x scope.

    Went from looking like this

    I had Wolf, Fiocchi Reduced Recoil and Hornady TAP along with this load. All 00 buck. The patterns for the Federal we're as tight or tighter at 20 yds than the others at 10.

    I've been keeping ten gallons of Premium on hand in a tool shed. I add fuel stabilizer as soon as I bring it home, and dump it in my vehicles after six months. I spend a little extra for Premium so it'll work in whatever needs it, and the six month rotation with stabilizer means it's always good fuel. I also have four 20# propane tanks for grilling and powering my camper's furnace and fridge. I also have 20 gallons of water in jugs that I rotate, and I can always drink from the hot tub. :)

    I may add another ten gallons of Premium storage so I'll have enough to power my generator for a week, plus extra for emergency transportation. I don't give much thought to Bug-In or Bug-Out. I'm more concerned with natural disasters like tornados and ice storms interrupting services, or making it necessary to relocate my family. WRT that kind of SHTF (you know, stuff that has really happened, not Red Zombie Dawn), I need to make sure my family can take care of themselves as much as possible. 20 gallons of gas will keep them comfortable for a long time at home, or provide enough fuel to get them out of the area to a better place.

    Thank you for your service, and I'm very glad you haven't been affected by PTSD, but I respectfully disagree.

    That depends on what you want to power. Kohler makes a line of whole home, natural gas powered generators that can make life very comfortable. They also costs several thousand dollars, require a lot of fuel, and are stationary. I don't have the budget for one, or have much need for one, either.

    I have a Honda EU2000i portable generator. I bought it to charge my camper battery, but also wanted something powerful enough to be useful at home in an emergency. It's portable, quiet, and 2000W is just enough power to run the window AC in my garage, or the refrigerator, or nearly any other device I own.

    Nice improvement! :)

    Yeah, it would need grinding with a Dremel for a heavy barrel. Mine fit right in because it was tapered. And the offset trigger was abysmal. But once I worked it over it shoots just fine. I really like having the length of a rifle in such a short package. Knocked off quite a few squirrels and a couple of 'coons trying to get into the chicken coop. I shoot low velocity 22CB Longs so it's just a glorified pellet gun. :)
