Good interview, a lot of sensible material on there, not one for the diehard Rawlesians though. But then again, we're dealing with reality here, not fantasy.

My favourite part is where FerFAL says no Jews survived in Hitler's Germany by holing up in a fortified bunker and shooting hordes of Nazi attackers.

Also, he raised some good points that are often overlooked about gun ownership in the UK and Europe beyond.

The "Doomsday Preppers" hatchet job (haven't seen it, but don't really need to) reinforces a point I've made before, though it's not really directly related to prepping.

The media are scum. Don't trust them, be very wary of them, if you don't need them don't talk to them at all.

Notice, also, that though the term "prepping" came into vogue because the media had succeeded in associating "survivalism" with doomsday cranks, white supremacists and so forth, the media is now doing the same thing to the term "prepping."

I’ve never viewed the Troubles as a religious conflict. They weren’t fighting over Papal rule or whether or not Marry remained a virgin for life etc. Mostly I see the Troubles being about the native Irish wanting to be free of my people, a foreign invader, and us wanting to stay. I can’t fault them for that. It just so happened to be one group was mostly Catholic and one group Protestant.

I know the media doesn't portray reality, and I did not spend much time there, but from what I could tell mass rape, murder etc of the Balkans is over stated, and was mostly moslem aggression. Yet somehow it's been spun the other way.It's the only contract I walked off of. IIRC, "they" had a hard time proving the war crimes and jail sentences were much lighter than folks thought.

I would not shoot folks on my property stealing firewood or what have you. I'd like to, invading my land is no different then being in my house uninvited, but it's not the way things work in these soft womanish days. I would release the hounds. Which would get the job done.

They could just ask and I'd be generous. I am a gigantic sap

  38. One of the most ridiculous things about prepper fiction is the inevitable scene where the protagonist pulls out a roll of silver quarters to impress his new lady friend. The prepper/protagonist is, of course, too gentlemanly/bashful to describe the next scene, but the heavy implication is always that the ladyfriend immediately drops to her knees to start blowing him.

  39. While I agree that Glocks are reliable, modular, and cheap. Saying that the HK .45CT is prone to breakage, or not durable, is silly. I've owned multiple Glocks and multiple HKs. HKs are notoriously more durable than any pistol I'm aware of. Reliability-wise, for the short haul, the two are fairly even; though I'd still give the nod to HK. The HK .45 mags are expensive. But why not compare the 9mm to 9mm? For a few dollars more,you get steel mags. I would put the HK USP or the new models against any handgun out there. There is a reason they're more expensive.

    • The USP series is one of the most durable handguns out there.
      The modern versions even more so.

      The USP was designed as a .40 to begin with unlike the Glocks, then converted to 9mm and .45, its built to handle pressures and abuse that few other pistols can tolerate. At least one .40 USP was converted to 10mm, something that no Glock can handle.

      That being said, H&K doesn't have the same support as Glock, spare parts are few and far between, hopefully that will change with the VP9 pistols. Not that they are needed often, but when its a matter of getting your primary defensive gun back online that is a consideration.

      One has to consider the totality of the circumstances, and while the P30 and HK45 have blown the Glocks away in some of the independent testing, they stil cost twice as much and have less aftermarket gear available.

      As much as I like the USP compacts, the 9mm is about as friendly a gun as one can want, the G19 does tuck away just a little easier and has unparalleled support.

      The H&Ks are an excellent choice, just like the Steyr M9A1 and Glocks.

  40. I've got a Gen 1 17 and a Gen 4 19. Except for the two mags that came with the 19, all my mags are the 17 shell that will fit both Glocks. The 19 has a little less recoil and is easier to conceal, but otherwise the main difference is where my trigger finger rests on the take-down lugs. The 19 has a slightly softer trigger, but the two feel enough the same that it really doesn't matter which one I grab.

  41. Ferfal, I listened carefully to your video on charlie hebdo. Actually charlie is not the name of a guy but that of the magazine in which several cartoonists worked. There is a tradition in France actually that goes back to the french revolution of hating religion and clergy. It is called "bouffer du curé" litterally "to eat priests" The people who indulge in that think of themselves as rational, undeluded and smarter-in a way superior to those they insult. It is also widely tolerated and quite common among the average guy. In the same way they will insult the military because they are considered conservative and authoritarian.
    Actually, during the french revolution they would tie up a priest and a nun together with ropes so they could not swim and throw them into the see or a river.
    I live in France and I am a spiritual person but it is very hard here to talk about God or beliefs. Did you know the french also forbid the wearing of the scarf for mulsim women. Anyway, that might explain charlie hebdo's drawings because in the eyes of the french society, these people are fighting against religious bigotry and narrow mindedness of the clergy and the army and they (the cartoonists) probably did it because it made them feel good about themselves. But their newspaper didn't sell very well and they were always on the verge of bankruptcy. Also they were fighting among themselves and several of them split away to go to other media

    • Thanks, that was interesting. Yes, I knew they didnt sell well, maybe that's the reason why they always went with insults so as to make the headlines.
      Fer

  42. These goggles are cool. I loved its style and design. Beside its stylish look it is also providing great protection for eyes.

  43. Nice article on the drought FerFAL. Might I recommend the Simple Shower for bathing? One can get a complete shower with just 4 liters (two 2-liter bottles with the Simple Shower attached).

  44. Thanks James, yes its a good idea. Someone suggested a black plastic garden sprayer, that would probably work nice as well.

  45. In America, the Blackberry's also have FM radio, at least my Passport does and I assume most all the other models, too
