Electric cars with solar panels on the roof would have to be a monster car, but very light, to keep going, then what about cloudy days?

Re: What firearms would best suit our Aussie scenario?

But I have learnt a lot from the use of them, particularly that they are great fun to use but are, sadly, outmoded technology Forget about making Black powder, in a post shtf scenario, it'd be virtually impossible, far better to stock up on powders before anything goes awry. Keith, You don't need to...

Re: What firearms would best suit our Aussie scenario?

Keith, I have no desire to provoke. What I said is what I truly believe and as for experience with MLs, I've been using them for many years and have both flint and percussion guns and also a matchlock. The matchlock is superior to the flint for speed of ignition and reliability. In a shtf situation,...

Re: What firearms would best suit our Aussie scenario?

Personally, I'd have a bolt action .22 rf rifle and a 20 gauge shotgun. One can carry a lot of .22rf ammo and far more smokeless powder to reload shot shells. Forget muzzleloaders as black powder is bulky, charge for charge with smokeless. Muzzleloaders have no advantages over smokeless breechloader...

My comments were not negative, I was merely pointing out to you where you were in error.

Re: PETITION: The legal right to armed self defence in Australia

What I find hard to understand is that you have not familiarized yourself with the law.

Whilst it is illegal, as you say, to possess anything for the purpose of self defence it is not illegal to use anything for self defence if such defence is proved to be lawful.

Re: PETITION: The legal right to armed self defence in Australia

It is illegal for Licensed gun owners in Australia to use their firearm for self defence or for the defence of their family in an armed home invasion. It is not illegal at all, in NSW at least, what is illegal is having a firearm ready for use in the home for defence. One may use sufficient force t...

Re: Muzzle loading flintlock shotgun

Certainly what you stated is true, I in no way denied that, but your statement is misleading as someone not versed in the law would tend to think that because they can own a certain type of gun without a licence then they can use it, pre shtf. You did not limit your statement to pistols but referred...
