You don’t have enough food or ammo.

  1. Aaaarrrrrgggghhhhhhh I was having a wonderful day until you wrecked it … thanks. :-

  2. Well at least they are supplying the list

  3. Also those would be some great rugs when were allowed to take scalps .

  4. Clinton45’s reign will be eventful and short.

  5. So how many bullets, and how much food is enough?

  6. IMHO, 3 210-round combat loads for everyone on your team times two for new recruits, plus 500 rounds/person (including future new recruits) for training.

    That’s rifle. Pistol = 4 mags each plus 250rds/head for training.

    Understand that these are just my SWAGs that I recommend as SOP for our team. More is always better.

    Food?

    George Patton has those numbers:

  7. While THOSE scalps will not be all that much, (age,dissipation,sparse), their younger lackeys will be able to supply some very nice stuff, and I look forward to amassing a credible number for my lodge pole. For all you first timers out there, let the knife be razor sharp, and do most of the work. Pulling while you are flaying can cause terrible rips, so, simply lift lightly as the scalp separates from the bone with the use of your knife, and the blood will also act as a kind of lubricant. Always scalp, AFTER the kill, unless you want a lot of other issues. Get it to your stretch frame as soon as possible, remembering to leave at least half and inch or more on the edge, when looping your twine or whatever through the scalp to secure at the frame, and keep the hole as small as possible. Throw some salted water on it to help cure over night is good, and don’t leave it where the sun will hit. Begin scraping the meat off next day, and go EASY. You should be able to get most of it off the first day, and the rest the next day while it continues to cure. When all the flesh is off, second day at latest, a good natural brain tan is best, using what’s available, or you could even use pigs brains, mixed in warm water, over the next few days. Just take the warm water and brains mixed well together, and rub them into the skin side of the scalp. Three times on that day usually is enough. Once cured this way, roll it, and put it in a low temp. smoker ( max- 150 degrees) with more smoke than heat, for two days. Maybe longer. When it comes out it should have a nice tan to the skin side, and you’ll need to flex it and work it with your hands to get the suppleness back.

  9. Lost Patrol

    Magazines for pistol … typically one in pistol plus two extra as a minimum. total of 3, However one needs to change out mags and give the springs a break. Hence you need 6 but being one who has damaged or lost a mag, I consider 7 as a minimum for your duty pistol. Over seas it was an M-9.
    Magazines for rifle … if talking 5.56, then one in the rifle and 10 loaded spares. Same thing as pistol, need to rotate mags. Hence 20 mags for your duty rifle plus I add two (2) for those lost or damaged. Total 22 mags min for duty rifle. As a contractor in Afghanistan I likewise carried 12 extra loaded mags in my ruck along with the 10 in pouches attached to my interceptor vest when I was traveling. I had a total of 48 M-4 mags in country.
    Here at home with little to no chance for a QRF except for a few friends. I choose to go heavier. Same same except I upgraded to 7.62×51.
    Just saying. GRIN
