WHat do you do with these things? I had two, I finally threw them away after a few years of trying to find a use for them. Couldn't even give the damn things away, they kept reappearing in my garage.
Everything I tried to use them for failed. They just aren't strong enough to hold anything in place.

Same, except as a homeless guy I just end up collecting them off the sidewalk and parking lots. Use a knife or the end of another zip tie to release the clamp and push the zip tie out of its own dock.

>>1173170
Same except ironically I find alot of discarded lighters on the ground... that actually happen to work and have enough fuel to use.

Also im not sure how common matchbooks are anymore, depends on the state I guess (no indoor smoking here even at bars). But collect the fuck out of those things and clip the match heads off.

Because just imagine the fire starting potential there. For free. You only need to light one of them.

>>1173292
Smartphones usually have an assistive light feature now. If you end up with any spare phones keep them rather than throwing them away. Use them for added battery life to do tasks like this, listen to music, and keep them eternally on airplane mode.

Agree 100%. Also used while travelling to block sunlight from bus window, privacy screen in hostel and to wrap fragile souvenirs in on the way home.

Pro tip: spend a bit more to get a good quality thick weave one for rather than a cheap Chinese one for $5. You’ll be thankful when it gets cold and you’re not freezing your tits off.

No, it's cause some one broke into my house one time, they tried to stab me. Only reason why they didn't get to, was cause my room mate showed up pretty much right when it was happening, ended up smashing the guy in the back of the head with the bat we kept by the front door. Also why don't you check out the news sometime, not uncommon for bad shit to happen to good people in places that are considered to be nice areas. Maybe if I was a delusional faggot like yourself, I wouldn't need a gun, I live in the real world and I know that only myself is responsible for my own safety.
>>
>>1179827

Also to add to this, the Supreme court in my state has ruled that police have zero obligation to answer any calls, even when a woman called the police and was reporting her violent husband, who she has a restraining order against, was there and was kidnapping their three children. They didn't respond and he murdered all three of them.

Another example is about 20 miles away from me, a family of four was murdered. They lived in a really nice part of town, was really in touch with the community due to their business. The person who killed them, he didn't take any of the thousands of dollars that was at the house, didn't take any of the thousands of dollars in medocal weed the guy was growing. The only thing he took was the parents and their two kids lives. Even though I know there is less than a 1% chance of shit happening to me, me
actually needing a gun, I'm still not gonna fuck around with that 1%. Specially when we live in a world were people will kill you for literally no god damn reason. When I go out camping I tell people where I am going, even though I know those woods like the back of my hand and don't expect any thing to happen to me, I still tell some one cause lady luck just might want to pay me a visit, fuck my day up.

Is that your main innawoods gun? I live in heavy moose/black and grizzly bear country, BC Canada. I bring my mossberg 500 with some slugs in it. Didn’t want the 590a1 because of the weight, and I don’t plan on slamming it in vehicle doors. It has a metal trigger guard and a steel safety

I’ve noticed that there seems to be two main Chinese factories cranking these out, and they have slightly different patterns. One seems to be thicker than the other. I found out cause one of my local retailers happened to stock the good ones. Can’t really tell you how to get them online other than ordering from that place I mentioned. Just go to different shops and feel the quality of them.

Learn how to tie a taut line hitch, it will fix that issue. it's a knot that you can use to adjust tension in a load easily and then it does not slip under that load.
>>
>>1180758
Or you could use cordage that doesn't absorb water and stretch when wet. Dyneema is great.
>>
>>1180455
Different shell. Could be a slug, and the rest is buck shot for instance. Usually different loads come in different colors, but regardless, keeping it upside down ensures there's no mistake when you're grabbing for it.

Border Collie. Best defense you can have against bears is a dog. Will warn if strangers are approaching. Also good for hunting. If I need to round up sheep or cattle she will do that too. Essentially the best tool in the shed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-bk1qugYmo&t=25s

Folding knife, usually an Endura.

I like being able to slice shit cleanly no matter what.

Sure, I could pull shit apart when /out/; ripping off bug heads instead of cutting them off, pulling the skin off critters, and so on, but eh.

I'd rather make a bow and start fire that way than not have the knife if we're talking 1 thing only.

I can also stick it on a makeshift pole and stab shit.

I live in a hot area, so something like a sub-zero survival blanket doesn't matter.
