If you're in the Phoenix area, I'm hosting this meetup at my house, it'll be a hands on class about the basics of raising rabbits as well as the chance to butcher your own rabbit.
If you're interested in coming, the class is free, if you want to take the rabbit you process home it will be $20.  It is not necessary to join the meetup group to come, but I'd appreciate it if you would, just so I can more easily track who is interested. 
Right now the meetup is still listed under "suggested" because it hasn't hit the three person threshold to get listed, so please join and RSVP.

Is anyone growing bamboo as a survival/homesteading staple?

As I was walking around the Zoo today with my kids, Bamboo was everywhere.  It's an easy growing plant, grows incredibly fast, produces edible shoots, provides shade for other, more sensitive plants, is a windbreak and privacy screen, can be used as animal feed, and of course is an outstanding building material.

You can get everything from small canes for tethering young plants, fishing poles, to even very stout building timbers from older, larger specimens.  You can craft weapons from it, make flooring, containers (both waterproof nodes and woven baskets)

I can't really think of a downside.

Certain varieties can spread more than you like if controls aren't taken, and they are a water loving plant.  However once established they can adapt to very little water conditions and still thrive.

Guns & Carry Laws  - 
 
My new (to me) S&W model 64. Heavy barrel, DAO, and bobbed hammer. I think this might have been a police model as there are some knicks and scratches on the right side above the grip consistent with seat belt latches making.
Question- is anyone familiar with the dash system for these guns? This is a dash 5. What does that indicate?

I see it like this- have enough mags to make your "combat" or carry load out, then double that for training mags.
If you carry your edc pistol with two spare mags, then buy three more to use in training so you can beat up on them without worrying about ruining your good mags. Make sure you vet your carry mags for reliability, but then use your training mags for normal range sessions or training classes.
It'll keep you from ruining your carry mag by dropping it on a rock during a speed reload and you won't have to constantly change out from defensive ammo to training ammo in your magazines. Again, use your carry mags to be sure if their reliability as well.

Yup, it's a good idea to shoot through those mags once or twice a year at least.

Ask a Gunnie  - 
 
Revolver under $300?
I'm looking to pick up an inexpensive revolver in a couple of weeks, it's mainly a prop for classes and possible loaner gun. If like it to be at least a .38 special but caliber isn't important. Used is fine.

What say you? Rossi? Charter Arms? Armscor?

Chemicals in our food are bad.  We agree.  However please don't get outraged because of what other products are also made with said chemical.  The common chemical dihydrogen monoxide is used in the production of nearly every product on the planet.  That doesn't make water bad for you.
Demand real food, but for the right reasons.

My esteem for the quality of Chipotle food can best be summed up by this: there is tabasco sauce available in their restaurant yet I've never had cause to use it.

Great burritos and the pickled carrots are large and crisp. Good choice for a fast lunch.

It's out of the way but the wife and I will drive the 25 minutes to go to Buccaneer Pizza. It's right up there for the best pizza in Orange County. Lots of varieties, priced well, and BIG pizzas. The staff has always been really nice and professional as well and will take the time to talk you. Great place. If you want pizza, you owe it to yourself to try them.

Taco Tuesday, get an order of any of their 6 varieties of taco for $1. I'll get one of each for a quick and easy take out dinner.

The staff here are wonderful! They treat you like family, genuinely caring and interested. The pho is great, a rich tasty broth and the ingredients are fresh. One of my favorite places to eat.

I've never eaten in, but got a pizza to take out several times. Hands down one of the best pizza's in the area. If you're in the mood for a good pizza don't even look at those chain joints, this place serves a pie you'll be telling your friends about.

This is one of my favorite places to get sushi. A huge selection of rolls plus other menu items, big booths to seat the whole family, and good service. The Fullerton Roll is a must have!
