Re: Anybody else ???

Probably a separate one. The one I am thinking of the civilian saw the guy shooting and did a "drop your weapon" to an active shooter. Shooter turned on him and shot him next. Ever do a drill where the suspect is armed and not pointing a weapon at you? If you take the second to say "drop the weapon"...

Re: Anybody else ???

Actually what I use are statistics from the FBI on active shooter situations. We practice for this quite a bit at work because we don't expect ISIS to really attack us tomorrow, but it is highly likely some anti-government nutbag will come by or someone attempting suicide by cop. Possibly even someo...

Re: Anybody else ???

No. I learned a long time ago that these discussions rarely educate anyway. So I avoid having them in the first place.

Re: $75 Insulation Challenge

I think Brianb2's top quilt at $44 viewtopic.php?f=17&t=314

Plus a pad like I quoted at $7, and a full length underquilt made from a costco for about $24.60 would be good down to about 40F and would be pretty close to the $75 goal and be under the 4 pound limit.

Re: $50 Top quilt mod

Idbe very surprised if that worked well down to 10F. My guess is the manufacturer is overrating their bag. But at $50 if it will get you down to about 30F that would be a good deal.

Re: $75 Insulation Challenge

OK, So maybe $50 was too low. To make this more realistic and I think still a challenge we will challenge to $75 and 4 pounds. First post edited to relate to that. This does open up the challenge to some good deals.

Re: $75 Insulation Challenge

What if you wear a bunch of clothing with it? Maybe the challenge should be upped to $75 and 4 pounds?

Re: $75 Insulation Challenge

Thanks, I think there is a need to show it is possible to get into hammocking without spending $500 on hammock, tarp, and quilt. In the spirit of getting the ball rolling I will submit an entry. 1.
