Re: Just a reminder not to forget

The US is not now, nor ever has been in great danger from ISIS. Heck, we even supported a number of groups that became ISIS in Syria and other countries and armed them during the Obama era. The groups that are the biggest threat to American ideals at this point are economic (like China) and domesti...

Re: My pistol blew up today - pics added

Today I rebuilt this glock! The gunsmith though it was possible and I thought he was crazy. But I picked up the parts to rebuild the lower thinking I could mount a 22LR conversion upper on it. As I started putting it together today, I realized it doesn't look bad once all the ruined parts (especiall...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

I took 3 days of pistol classes this last week for 18 hours total of training time. I went through hell at work getting enough done to take the time off. I also remoted into my work computer at night after classes to get some urgent little things done. I'm still worn out today but it was worth it. T...

Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

11 weeks may not see an end to troubles, but it's a reasonable amount of time to be able to adapt and there will likely be windows within that 11 weeks to be able to resupply. Any number that anyone could give for emergency savings or preparations for bugging in or bugging out are going to be pretty...

Re: What are you doing to strengthen your immune system?

I got tested for nutrient imbalances. I was real low on B12 and toxically high in D. :shock:

So I started taking B12 and don't take any D anymore. I have felt way better lately. Dropped an inch off my waist real quick as I've had the energy to be more active.

I'm not optimistic any more stimulus is coming out. But if any comes my way, I'll stash it.

Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

An interesting video showing a mob of violent people confronting people in a restaurant. This video deals with this person's opinion on what to do if you face such a confrontation.

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

I failed to do burpees today or yesterday, but I did 6 sets of 8 to 9 pullups today. Today I tried canning chicken. I don't think most of the jars are sealing properly, but they're still cooling. My intent is to take it to work with the curry I canned for microwavable lunches. If this works, it also...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Re: Is COVID-19 Leading to More Gardening?

There are no canning supplies or equipment available anywhere in my area. Every store is stripped clean. I went looking for jar tongs this last week and all canning supplies are gone. I've been using string loops to lift my cans out of the canner. I suspect the surge in canning is related to a surge...

Re: Wisconsin Police Shooting and Protests

The real legal question in LA & MS (not sure about WI) is did the person act aggressively before the shooting occurred. Did he call them names, (not aggression) taunt them (depending upon what was said that may or may not be aggression) or otherwise induce them to chase him. In my state, once he ra...

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

I just think the better path is "unleash American workers to make products better than anyone can get any place else so people will demand and need our goods." Just my opinion. The Fed has not really consulted me on my opinions though. I agree in theory, but in practice, I can't get Americans to sh...

I just picked up a literal civic hatchback load of canning jars and a decent sized pressure canner today. So part of my preperation for the election will be canning curry and spaghetti sauce to go with all the rice and noodles I already have stocked up. I'll have a lot of jars left over, so I may tr...
