  2nd amendment - the fight to protect our right
Posted by: Carcass - Yesterday, 03:10 PM - Forum: Politics & Sunday Hunting - Replies (1)

“For those of us who work in marbled halls, guarded constantly by a vigilant and dedicated police force, the guarantees of the Second Amendment might seem antiquated and superfluous. But the Framers made a clear choice: They reserved to all Americans the right to bear arms for self-defense. I do not think we should stand by idly while a State denies its citizens that right, particularly when their very lives may depend on it. I respectfully dissent.” -Gorsuch and Thomas, U.S. Supreme Court

  New shed
Posted by: Thummy - 06-23-2017, 06:21 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

We needed to build a shed. We want to refinish the basement into a rec room. That meant we needed a place for decoys. We also needed a place that wasn't the basement or behind the carport for tree stands. 5 Star Sheds was awesome. Husband and wife built it in 3 days. It is 10x16.

They build a work bench and shelves with the cost. I wanted the work bench as a shelf and they did it at 10 feet long across the back. Then they asked about the shelves and said we can do 2 shelves or we can just put a second 10 foot work bench/shelf it over the other one. Since I wasn't going to use it as a work bench anyway that is what I went with. Siding matched the house exactly.

  Communicate when you have no cellular coverage?
Posted by: RandolfG - 06-22-2017, 09:43 PM - Forum: Equipment & Reviews - Replies (24)

My name is Randolf Gioro. I represent a team of engineers who happen to be outdoor lovers and used to work in Motorola, Honeywell, and the aerospace industry. Dangerous situations we each experienced in the wilderness brought us together, and we came to realize that there is a serious need for better off-grind communication.

Walkie-talkies are what we commonly use when there is no cell coverage. However they have no GPS. In case of an emergency, we cannot find the exact location. Satellite communication, such as DeLorme inReach, seems ideal, except that they are quite expensive, and further charge usage fees. Besides, both options are pretty heavy and bulky that we have to make a painful trade-off between safety and portability. 

We feel extremely astonishing that we have to trust our lives to some technologies of half a century ago like walkie-talkie and satellite communication, while nowadays’ technology can do far better. Based on the latest Internet of Things tech, we have invented Sonnet. It combines satellite communication’ functionality with walkies-talkies’ affordability, in addition to being more portable. Without relying on cell towers, Sonnet powers up to 10km communication to: 
- send text and voice messages (privately or in a group);
- send image data, and files;
- share, mark and track GPS locations;
- increases the effective range by relaying data through other users in the area;

Sonnet prototype:

When there is no coverage, Sonnet allows us to always communicate with each other no matter how harsh the conditions are. This can literally save our lives in case of an emergency. Multimedia and GPS can also improve our communication accuracy, and take group coordination to the next level. 

Furthermore, our mesh-networking technology will facilitate the formation of open, decentralized mobile communication networks that are robust and free of charge, owned by people themselves.

We have completed working prototypes, and we wish to offer outdoor enthusiasts the lowest possible price. But to do so, there is a threshold volume we cannot afford on our own. This is why we have launched a Kickstarter campaign, and we wish you can help us to make the change happen. More information can be found on the campaign page to help you decide if Sonnet is a good fit for your needs:

Anyone on here practice at these ranges?  I feel good shooting nice clusters at a hundred yards, this article right here makes me feel like a NOBODY in the shooting world.
