    How's everyone doing on the eve of disaster?

    Got enough ammo? Got plenty of hi-cap magazines? Where do you start? Where does it end? Can you buy confidence or set a price on it? How's the next six months going to go down?

    Just as comfy as I was 26 July. The day before the UN was going to pass the small arms treaty and our senate was going to ratify it and the blue helmet thugs would be marching down our streets. Yup, feeling just fie as long as folks don't freak out and start buying like scared children driving prices up then blaming the administration for it.

    Comfortable here. Long ago it was determined that ammo/component concerns were never going to be troubling.

    Besides, it's no sure bet that a disaster is in the offing.

    Unfortunately that IS something we CAN count on. Go out of your way to shake hands with your brother in public. Get the feel for your enemy before they realize that they are your enemy. Be prepared for all and anything.

    As soon as I can make space to do so, I'm loading up every empty case I have until I run out of primers or powder. (I have a LOT of empties!)

    I was discussing arc welding with my dad who has a pacemaker and told him of others that put a steel plate between their chest and the work. Engineer that he is, he said "How about a tinfoil vest?" That ought to work, I snickered out. He had never heard of the tin-foil hat thing. Hey Big trouble coming?. I live in the rural mountains on the right winged East side of California. If it don't burn down I can set up a toll station taxing those leaving their collapsed liberal cities.

    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    Same old story. We are Americans. We don't scare, we look at the hand we are dealt, and we go forward. All the guns and ammo in the world will do no good. Our issues are bigger than that, so keep your eye on the big picture.

    Me personally, I'm hanging-out with the Amish. Unlike the Mayan, the Amish are still HERE!

    No kidding. .223 has gone through the roof. I've been buying Tula for my Smith, but my new AR won't run it. Brass only, and it's topping $10/20 rounds here. I really need to order a case online.....

    I thought you were talking about the election, Ram Rod. Wasn't even thinking about the Mayan prediction which I don't believe in at all.

    Look, just because you've got a fully stocked Ark in your backyard doesn't mean you can be uppity!
