Re: Fortifiying Your Bus Against Intruders Or Attack?

Loss of points for bringing up Chump Norris.

What is that second one Smitty? It looks like the love child of the Bat Mobile and and armored personal carrier... I wonder what it would look like painted white with "San Quenton" painted down the side...

What facts? None of that stuff is actually true, just the usual garbage that people mouth off if. He has some skill in Martial Arts. Little, if any, in acting.

Now to go look up that vehicle. Thanks Smitty.

Re: Fortifiying Your Bus Against Intruders Or Attack?

I don't understand why so many think this subject is limited to those who think tin is the new fashion trend. A bus could easily be made into a great bug out vehicle(you could do better but only if you started out rich). First and foremost, and it has been mentioned...location, location, location. Situational awareness cannot be overlooked. The burm idea is a good one as well as the trap door and a lot of the ideas on making the bus bullet resistant would be doable considering the ingenuity around here...I mean look at how much thought and fabrication go into these things: Solar power, generators, wind turbines, jacuzzi tubs, if you can imagine it someone here appears to have either tried it or contemplated it. Those who want to dismiss the firearm are more than welcome to do so, although what would be the point. I would rather have a good rifle and sidearm(and be proficient at hitting what I aim at, quick mag changes, and clearing jams) than most of what has been mentioned here aside from good reinforced, non-rv, door locks. Better still, if things got really bad you could always high tail it to an isolated part of the continent and a firearm would be instrumental in putting food on the table. And nobody is advocating the notion that we must live in fear and paranoia, but I would also like the idea of having a nice revolver if I feel the need to go kayaking or mountain biking in bear country. I wonder if one could procure run-flat tires for a bus like the military uses. Your speed would be limited and you could only go so far before you had to change the tire, but still fast and far enough if your attackers or on foot or you are able to take out their transportation during the evac. To those who are worried about moving through states that have stringent firearm laws: for one thing it doesn't sound like a place I want to be if they feel the need to "grant" me rights that I already have, it's not like you have to keep these things on the kitchen table, and of course when asked..."well I had a few but they fell off the dock into the pond when I was fishing last week," or there's always the tried and true horrible boating accident excuse, and of course, "those aren't gun ports, they're for running extension cords out of the bus." As mentioned camo is also a good idea, but instead of replicating some type of rent-a-cop paint scheme I would suggest a floral arrangement with bright colors, peace signs, and doves. Attackers would come on overconfident, with their guard down, completely unaware that they were, in fact, about to try and overthrow a panzer tank disguised as the Easter Bunny.

...can the pigeons hide claymores???

On the Smitty Front, What was on your post? I get very annoyed when I hear 5yo kids spouting that Chump Norris crap too. Just cause he knows Kempo (I'm pretty sure its kempo, been over ten years since I heard) doesnt make him bad ass. But I like that Kempo has several moves where you kill the guy by breaking his neck in various ways then smack him in the head to render him unconscious. My best friend's mother took Kempo and kept telling us about these moves when she learned them.

Re: Fortifiying Your Bus Against Intruders Or Attack?

The upper body of chuck, the lower body of who knows, the fact that they left a bunch of crap that they should have cut out from around the head... Horrid. Looks like something I have done. Only, I know I didnt do that. I have been known to do photoshops on Fark.com, but its been a while since I have bothered to even go to the site. Probably just do a search for me and add Fark to it. I pop up all over the place... Sometimes I wonder how I pop up at some places as I never joined their sites...

What topic was this again?

Sojakai, Chill dude. the Chuck stuff was all a joke. You know jokes, don't ya? And the Roo picture w/ Chuck...... a joke. You're kind of critical on things, for someone with ADHD.

Re: Fortifiying Your Bus Against Intruders Or Attack?

I tried to get it back to the listed topic... Oh well.

PB, your too uptight. You need to relax some and not crit over a few minor comments and one of which I aimed at myself. I understand that I am sometimes hard to read when I joke around. At least, I have been told that its hard to tell when I am joking sometimes. I guess I need to put my "Happy Eyes" on my joke comments. ^.^
