but neglect moleskin or other blister care. I've found out the hard way that a couple of blisters on your feet can be incredibly debilitating, and will seriously jeopardize your bug out plan.
From my experience as an Infantry Medic, Oh Yes!

Everyone knows there are only three tools in an Army Medic's bag;

- Moleskin
- IV Bag
- 800mg Motrin

Add hand sanitizer and Band-Aids, and you come pretty close to my personal FAK. I've slimmed down. But friends have insisted I carry gunshot kit stuff too. So now I have a GSW kit.

...and I don't actually have an IV bag. Does a camelback count? :)

It used to be you did not need hand sanitizer if you had some dip spit. Band aids were not needed, just rub some dirt on it. Soldiers carry their IFAK so you don't the GSW kit for them, just yourself. At least that is how I remember it. I could be getting dodgy though.

Sweet! I just ordered 4 of the 30oz version. One each for our neighbor and his wife who take care of our lawn for us because they're nice people, and one for me and one for my wife.

30oz is the perfect size. 40 is to big. Now go on ebay and order handles. They are a must have. As the mugs get very cold. Handles are like $3 or less each. And better design than sold by RTIC. Like these:

Academy is starting to discount their long guns that are slow moving this year.

$269 - Remington 870 Express Shotguns, 12 gauge, 26" vent-rib Remington choke barrel with a matte, nonreflective metal finish

The Express of course is their lower quality, lower price option to the regular 870. A 26" barrel is a bird gun obviously but shorter barrels are not that expensive if you shop around.

$279 - Savage Axis XP Rifle 6.5 Creedmoor only, with 22" barrel and scope. They have also knocked $2 a box off of all their 6.5 Creedmoor ammo.

They also have 64 gun, gun safes for $599 which is about as cheap as I have ever seen a guns safe that size.

You have to be fast on the draw with those deals. I think it only lasted about half the day.

I had my eye on their 10" "sit in" Kayak.

https://www.sears.com/sun-dolphin-aruba ... 665620000P

How the hell anyone sits in at only 10" long is a mystery I am dying to solve. I mean it would just barely fit my um, hand yeah, my hand would just barely fit.

But the breaker bar set seems a good deal.

I am sorry, truly I am. I know this is a deal thread but when someone lobs a softball like that, I'm going to take a swing at it every damn time.

Winchester has released their fall MIR's on ammo. Some of them are quite good. There is something there for everyone.

.22lr
CFR hunting ammo
Shotgun ammo


https://winchester.com/Rebates

Federal has their rebates out as well. Notably they are focused on bulk purchases they have rebates on green tip and other 5.56 up to $500 for the big shooters. They also have big rebates on their higher end hunting ammo for rifles and shotguns which can bring it down in to a more basic price range.
