241 More Workbench Silencers

Hollenback, George M Paladin Press 1998 9.78E+12 Trade paperback

New 

After writing his popular Workbench Silencers, inventor George Hollenback came up with a number of clever other ways to affix common items to the end of a firearm to help suppress its noisy report. More Workbench Silencer features the best of these designs, including four different types of slip-on silencers and three perforated tube designs. These silencers are devised for the popular Ruger.22 bull barrel pistol, the venerable Colt.45 semiauto handgun, the compact.380 Makarov and even the Maverick Model 88 bullpup shotgun. All can be made with ordinary materials available at any hardware store. Warning: The manufacture or possession of firearm silencers is illegal without prior licensing from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (BATF).

246 Nature's Garden: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting , and Preparing Edible Wild Plants

Thayer, Samuel Trade Paperback



Nature’s Garden follows the same award-winning format of Samuel Thayer’s first book, with in-depth chapters covering 41 new wild edibles. In this volume you will find the most authoritative accounts of several important food plants, such as hackberry and American lotus, available anywhere. You will find mouth-watering photography of cranberries, blueberries, huckleberries, strawberries, wild plums, and more. You’ll hear of new methods for using dandelions. You’ll finally be able to make sense of the tricky wild lettuce / sow thistle group. You’ll discover that wild carrot and poison hemlock can be reliably told apart, thanks to a detailed chart accompanied by 19 photographs. You’ll read about vegetables with a rich tradition of use around the world that are largely ignored in the wild food literature, such as cow parsnip, patience dock, and honewort. You can read more exciting myth-busting about poisonous plant fables and the maligned black nightshade, plus anecdotes about purple children and the hazards of eating cacti. Yet perhaps the best part of all is the book within a book about acorns: 51 pages of the details that turn these nuts into food.

248 Nuclear War Survival Skills

Wigner, Eugene P (Designer), and Kearny, Cresson H Oregon Institute of Science & Medicine 1988 9.78E+12 2nd ed. Trade paperback

New 

There are a number of do-it-yourself guides to civil defense available, but most seem to be aimed at hard-core survivalists who have crack outdoor skills, and lots of specialized equipment. This book is very different and is written for the average citizen by a former U.S. Army officer, field geologist and civil engineer who built and field-tested the expedient shelters described within while still employed at the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory. These shelters can be put togeather within a few hours by ordinary, untrained men and women. (It is a good idea to take a weekend and practice building them. ) They provide good protection during the weeks it may take for fallout to decay to negligible levels of radioactivity. (Expedient blast shelters, which also protect against the shockwave from a nearby explosion, are also discussed. ) The author is clear and thorough throughout, supplying checklists for supplies, equipment and materials; detailed building instructions and descriptions of the genuine (as opposed to fanciful) effects of nuclear weapons. There is also a valuable discussion of the purchase and use of potassium iodide compounds for protection of the thyroid gland from absorption of radioiodine. Finally, detailed plans and instructions are provided for the construction and use of a homemade fallout meter(! ) to indicate radiation levels. (It is a lot more accurate than many of the over-priced, defective-or-uncalibrated war-surplus Geiger counters on the market! ) The 2001 edition contains a new chapter on the hazards of trans-Pacific fallout, which could drift eastward to the U.S. mainland from a nuclear conflict in Asia. (Such as India vs. Pakistan, or a North Korean nuclear attack on the South or Japan. ) There is also a new appendix detailing the persuasive medical and scientific evidence that low levels of ionizing radiation below a certain threshold do no harm to humans or other forms of life, or their descendants. In fact,
