Alone contestants are inept

they can't even IMAGINE having a shelter that's efficient enough that they dont need a fire for warmth.. Nor can they imagine devoting weeks of tedium into weaving netting. Just like they'd never have made .45 ACP brass out of .45 Colt brass, as I did. hell YOU guys are all too lazy to devote a couple of hours into melting lead cores out of ball bullets, replacing the lead with epoxy and seeing that I'm RIGHT about the possible velocities with short barreled 9mmm and .45's and very lw bullets. You're too cheap and lazy to cast bullets out of pure tin. You just IMAGINE that tin bullets will shatter upon impact, etc Anything to try to one up me, without ANY effort to check on the factuality. what I say. Cause you're nothing but second handers. You'd have to do what passes for "thinking' for you for a week to come up with ONE new gun topic-thread here, when i have proven my ability to create 10 per day, every day. Hack told me he had trouble coming up with one per MONTH for his column in SOF. :-) LMAO

once you know how to not have to waste a month on a nearly-worthless shelter and firewood, many things flow from that. You dont need a belt knife, axe and saw. The saw edged shovel and the modified Crunch tool are then good enough for the 90% less wood processing and offer lots of other potential, saving one pick. The rope hammock means you save a pick that you'd otherwise have wasted on the gillnet and paracrod and you also have 5x as much netting and cordage, if you're not to lazy to create and use it.

The Crunch multitool lets you make 48 fishhooks out of the initial 24 large fishhooks, all with just one day's work. They waste a pick on a ferrorod, cause they can't even imagine using the copper wire, tape, lint and the headlamp battery to start a fire, or even bed their coals in ashes, so they dont need to start a fire from scratch (several times per day) Because they can't be bothered to learn how to refine and work clay, the waste not only the pick on a little 1/2gallon cookpot, they waste an hour every day, repeatedly boiling water and cooking in it, instead of doing so ONCE a day with a couple of baked clay cookpots, with lids, 1 gallon each. Without the baked clay balls and a slingbow, they waste hours looking for arrows, which with they've missed smalll game. Also, they miss shots at big game cause they'd laid aside their combersome recurve bows. Take down arrows and the slingbow prevent that. Making a pottery sieve-ladle lets you easily and quickly remove ice shards from the net-slits in the ice

It would never occur to anyone else that you dont have to waste time and cordage on a knots when you have lots of 3" mesh and need to convert a lot of it into 1.5" gillnet. Simply over lap two of the chunks of netting, and sew a loop of fishline thru the intercections, using the sewing needle that you've bent into a hook configuration to get past the producer's. Fowler thought of that. As he thought of mods to the multiool. he knew to take the Cold steel shovel, but not to add saw teeth and additional handles. for greatly increased versatility. He also didn't know to use the visegrip multitool. None of them has known to make a big pump drill, nor to take the duct tape. Only 2 have taken the 12x12 tarp, and neither of them knew to take half of it as reflectorized material, half as clear material.

Two have known to take a hammock, one of them a rope hammock, but he didn't do anything with it. You can completely unravel that 1500 ft of rope in a day and unravel the rope into its smaller strands in another day. Of course, you dont need to (and should not) do all of it at once. just enough to make a day's worth of netting. you need to get finished netting into the water every couple of days, in order to increase your food-income. Fowler spent a lot of time looking for insects, grubs, etc, with which to bait his hooks. He caught so few fish and they were so small, that he felt forced to eat all parts of his catch, none left for bait. The use of netting and starting out with some pemmican fixes that. None of them have known to take the salt, for baiting in big animals and preserving fish until cold weather does so for them.

Nobody's had a clue how to set traps for big game. You get 1000 ft of 20 ga picture wire. Because nobody has thought of using foot snares to a drag log and twisting 8 strands into cable, capable of holding a moose by the leg to 150 lbs of drag log, the idea never crosses their mind. To them, the only possible way to take a big animal is with an arrow, and both "successes" have made the animal suffer for HOURS. The narrow "v" of brush, staked down near its apex, baited with salted cambium is extremely capable of forcing the animal to put its head RIGHT where the 2" OD, 6 ft long springpole will bury a stake in its spine or brain. A small rectangle of 1" green sticks can mount 6 stakes onto the spring pole, each stake being 9" x 3/4", being triangular in configuration. This gives you the "shotgun spread' effice ot not missing a vital spot when the springpole slams down onto the neck/head of the animal.

that covers my 10 gear picks and the reasoning behind them. Obviously, I"ve given 100x as much thought to this as any else has. That's why I want a 200 day, 2 million $ challenge. That's long enough to take the being fat and lucky out of the equation. Cold Steel shovel and Crunch multitool, both highly modified. Snarewire and fishing kit, modified. 12x12 tarp and 2 person rope hammock, both modified, Slingbow and tape, 3 lb block of sea-salt and pemmican, with some peanut butter mixed with the lard, to give the pemmican appeal to a wider spectrum of animals as bait. Later, of course, fishheads and guts will be the predator-bait.

Wire-wrapping some of the 48 fishhooks into treblehooks and using them to rid the area of predators and to guard my food cache was one of my finer ideas. Especially for the 200 day challenge, every predator I kill gives me more birds and small mammals to catch and eat myself and i'll be eating some of the predators, too. The little tarp and tape bait-bags were a stroke of genius also, as were the chum-lines and net pens. Moving the seine thru the baited net pens is going to require less effort, more success than trying to encircle baited fish along a shoreline.

making arrows on site, using the duct tape as fletching, using removable foreshafts, split, pegged, sharpened 4 splines, barbed, fire hardened, for bow-fishing was pretty ingenious also. If Feds had not effed up and ticked me off, I'd probably have created all sorts of goodies. Now I only think of how to **** them over.

it never occurred to any of them to make an igloo, over even to use their sleeping bags and the 10x10 tarp to protect themselves from the cold wind when ice fishing. Much less to have an igloo out THERE, and just LIvE near their net slits and fishing holes. They didn't even move any debris out there, to sit and put their feet upon. Consequently, one gal missed out on half a million dollars, due to frostbitten toes. It would never occur to them to make tarp booties, so they could wear 3 pairs of wool socks at once (not their boots) with layers of debris between the socks, while sitting around waiting on the fish to be caught.

John Melvin Davis an whatever of the many fake names you use, go **** yourself. I for one am tired of listening to you an your crazy stupid manic thoughts.

4000$ a month pension? For what? You never did a days work in your life. Guess you got it from laying around doing nothing an selling drugs all your worthless life.

I suppose it's easy to constantly come up with something "new" when you wake up in a new world every day, having no grasp or memory of the past.

John - read carefully, and I'll type slow so you can keep up. Not only have some of us tried the "extremely light bullet" thing, some of us (at least one of us) has done it with epoxy.

And recorded the velocity and penetration results.
And posted those results.
Right here on this forum.
More than thirteen years ago.

(Fwiw, I hit as much as 2200 fps in .38 special and over 2400 fps in .45Colt with no excess pressures.)

Just because we don't agree with your untested worship of uber-light bullets doesn't mean we're unfamiliar with them. In my case, it's because I actually HAVE tested them. Have some coffee or B vitamins or something to clear your head and read the following. It's from 2007, right here at armslocker:

Wow! So many utterly useless posts in one day! Congratulations Melvin. Once again you have proven what a liar you are!

Melvin, you are truly a legend in your own mind, a jealous one at that!

You have definitely shown the level of your magnificence; on that we agree completely.
