Re: OAUSA Net - 11/ 21/13 - CA Legislative Update re Firearms

Lead-Free bullet manufactures are out there and gaining momentum. Finding a good load when any of the components change presents a logistical wrinkle in your favorite...well...anything, not just reloading. Suggest you look at, while it is still legal to do so in CA, ordering from Midway USA for relo...

Re: OAUSA Net - October 10, 2013 - Comfort Camping

Cold weather gear for a good price, although not necessarily Gucci. In the Army we called the old field jacket liner a "smoking jacket" and it was great as another layer of insulation. In addition to the "smoking jacket" the field pant liners were good but the newer model with button down sides is e...

Re: OAUSA Net - October 10, 2013 - Comfort Camping

Comfort camping usually requires night lights for guests or those not fond of wilderness darkness. The Harbor Freight 36 Solar Security Light with motion detector (69644) is the answer. It runs all night with a day long charge and comes on automatically at dusk and shuts off at dawn. It has a low se...

Re: OAUSA Net - October 03, 2013 – Camping Gear Repair Kit

The ole standards: 1. 550/parachute cord. 2. Used to be a big fan of electrical tape but now I like the cloth "hockey" or medical tape for its versatility. 3. Sewing kit with the usual stuff but found for those tough jobs waxed dental floss can't be beat as a dual purpose thread material for leather...

Re: OAUSA Net May 9 - Field Antennas

Thanks for the net topic this week Bruce. The AN/GRA-50 was the standard for us out in the field (military, US Army). It was most commonly used as an inverted "V" (directional) but the slant wire and "L" were also very useful. The inverted "V" worked well because you only had to have one support poi...

Re: OAUSA Net - April 18 and 25, 2013 - Ammunition Handloading

It may not be as accurate, and it may not be as fast, but it is good enough to learn with and it is especially good in an emergency situation. .38/.357 was a good place t...

Re: OAUSA Net May 16 - Southwest Locations

Favorite places are hard to name so I have a few nice places that get me away without going too far. Not big on squeezing big trips into a short time so local trips are very common and still very enjoyable. I look forward to doing the eastern and middle sections of the Mojave Trail.
