I have grown up around Hams and it’s a life-long hobby. Many are of the age (pre-internet) to understand what communication is in emergencies, disasters and wars. Ham Radio has a distinction that it allows you to listen and communicate around the world during all these. Except some wars. But overall it’s a Strength.

I’m in. Thanks for the opportunity and example.
Consider, (HK-91, G3 Clone) PTR-91 GI, 4x 3-4x scope (hensoldt Z24, trijicon night sights) and G3 accessories as needed.
Your good to a solid 25-600 yards. Day and night within reason and backup sights.
Parts and accessories still reasonable and available.

I enjoy nightforce and leupold. But the Burris Eliminator III and Shepard scopes are pretty neat rangefinding scopes.
MVT Region is where these will be used.

Questions I never asked, answers I need to hear, inspiration as I move forward toward being strong, ready and able.
I joined to do it all as I save money, time and grow in my ability to join a training class.
I want to work through all of them as possible. Lots of legacy to drop and some to build on.
Question- What do you hope folks get from this forum?
I’ve seen a couple for sale. Prices range from $100-$300.
This recent popped up.
My concerns would be durability long term. Many of these options are glue and plastic. Not stitched down, durable materials. They must work and certainly have there place but I am looking for some long term use and rebuilding if needed.
What’s your choice for boots these days?
Use: MVT, Hunt, working outside
These were recommended:
