5.0 out of 5 stars JL Bourne Sets the Bar, January 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Day by Day Armageddon (Paperback)
DBDA is a fantastic book for anyone who likes the zombie genre. Written in a journal format, it is a departure from the standard novel format. It not only makes it a fast paced read, but allows the reader to become more immersed in the story. Bourne, an actual Naval officer has a keen insight into tactics and weapons so the book has a believability that others may not have. I recommend it for those just entering the genre and others who have been reading it for years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Technical and Informative, January 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a nice resource for those who are looking to prepare for any possible problems in the future. It is full of great information and tips to survive TEOTWAWKI... One thing I found, not so much wrong with the book, is that the equipment he listed is difficult if not impossible to find. Unless you owned this book within a year of its release, everything listed for communication or other necessities have been snatched up or are stupid expensive. That is another problem, a number of the things recommended in the book can really only be afforded by those with means. That being said, this book is a good addition to any preper library, if nothing more then to give you a starting point to do your own research.


Battlestar Galactica - Season Three

5.0 out of 5 stars A 5 "Battle" star rating, January 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am a huge fan of Battlestar Galactica so this review is heavily slanted towards the positive. That being said, the show continues to surprise even years after it went off the air. Season three is a great continuation of the humans from the 12 colonies, searching for the lost 13th tribe on the distant planet Earth. The season begins with a bang and ends with a great cliffhanger.
For those who are not familiar with the new version of Battlestar, this is a fantastic reworking of the original 1970's show. Ronald Moore(Helix) and David Eik have created a Scifi masterpiece that will capture your imagination with incredible sets and unforgettable characters. If you are into scifi shows like Firefly or Star trek, you will not be disappointed. It would take to long to list the episodes and give a synopsis for each, so go get this show, sit back and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great clippers for the price, January 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had these clippers for a few years and they performed beautifully every time. They were lost in a move so I will be buying another set. For the money you will save on haircuts I cannot stress how good these work. As someone whose hair is thinning as his waistline grows, these are nice for a quick shave or a decent style with all of the included attachments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ambidextrous and strong, January 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Troy industries is well known for quality products and this is no exception. I have this on my m4 with fixed stock. This may not fit on rifles with adjustable stocks. It installs with some doing. Be mindful of the takedown pin spring when disassembling the rifle, it is very small and tough to find in the carpet if it decides to take a walk, trust me! Once in the sling mount gives you a nice option for either 1 or 2 point slings. I do however recommend 2 point slings if you are shooting in any competitions. As I just began 3 gun and rifle competitions, the single point slings do not stabilize the rifle enough when not in use, and tend to sling the rifle too low on your body which can interfere with movement. That being said this is a nice piece of equipment and allow for right and left handed shooters.

adidas Men's adiCORE III IN Soccer Shoe,Black/White/Gold,9.5 M

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice indoor soccer shoe, January 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's a good sneaker for indoor soccer and general walking around. Do not expect excellent comfort for long periods of time. I tried working out on a tread mill with these and my shins began to hurt after 15 minutes. As for grip on indoor turf or astrograss they are very good. Cutting or ball control are easy with these shoes.

They are a narrow shoe so if you have wide feet like me, you may want to look elsewhere... All in all they are a good indoor soccer shoe but there maybe better out there. That being said, for the price, they will be tough to beat.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see!, December 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Walking Dead: Season 1 (DVD)
The walking dead is a fantastic story and the first season was the perfect lead in. I have been a fan of the genre for decades and the walking dead is the best I've seen. It is not so much the zombies that is the draw but the human Dynamic and their struggle for survival. I truly enjoyed how the story shows the struggles faced by the group and their need to hold on to what was. This series is not for everyone, but I know that even the drama and occasional horror movie goer will enjoy this series. Definitely not for children.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not good for competition, impractical, December 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is a high quality item, but impractical for a competitive shooting. It hangs too low on me, I'm 5'9" and it puts the weapon in a awkward position in front of you. Too low to move comfortably, and causes the muzzle to bang into your knee when moving. The one nice feature is the elastic portion which allows a punch aim when engaging targets, and being a single strap it is not prone to tangling up. That being said I wish I would have bought the two position for stability and less movement of the weapon when not directly handling it while running or walking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful tool but you will need more, December 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is a good tool to help you pass the natural sciences clep exam, but like any other exam you will need more then just one book. I used this book, insticert.com along with the official clep study guide and got a 60, a 50 is passing. It will give you good information and is a good addition to other materials. It makes the information pretty understandable, especially for someone like me who has not taken a science class in many years. I would recommend this book, but buy others and check out insticert along with the other free clep study guides online. Best of luck!
