In a spinoff of the 'Getting What You Need' thread that Will started a while back, I'd like to start another specifically for the personal experiences section.

The rules are very simple: List what you did to prepare for whatever emergency situation you feel might affect your AO.

I'll start:

Today I received a free sample of Z-Medica's new Quick Clot formula.
Tonight I'm reloading a bunch of empty magazines from the range, and sending off two defective pistol magazines for replacement.

Bought a case of water to keep in my trunk because I'm down to half a case. Someone keeps drinking them. :oops:

Also, went and picked up my CCW license. Nine times out of ten I'm in a place where carrying isn't an option (work, school, bar, etc) so I'll probably rarely carry but it's better to have and not need it then need it and not have it.

On Saturday I took a one-day Defensive Handgun class to brush up on my skills. Even as an instructor, supervised training is always good.

Today I received two 5 Gallon water cans from LC Enterprises and 3 USGI M-16 mags. As soon as I can figure out where we can store the loaded cans, I'll fill 'em up.

I also received my wife's Ultimak mount and Aimpoint scope for her M-1 Carbine. I'll sight that in, along with my Daewoo and Eotech, tommorrow.

Next Sunday my wife and I are taking a Defensive Rifle class.

Purchased another two hundred rounds of UMC .223 Remington 55Gr FMJ. Also purchased another case of 24 half liter bottled water. Also just as I am typing this my free case of Quick Clot came in the mail. Good stuff to have on hand for wounds.

Yeah, what's up with that? I'll take some free Quick Clot or any free first-aid supplies anyone is giving out.

I could use them to build up another kit and stash it with my range bag.

I got a free sample of Quick Clot 1st Response in the mail today, too! I didn't get a case though. Just one sample packet from Z-Medica. Who wants to let me try it on them? I only have one sample so it'll have to be a small wound.

<edit> I just re-read Gunny's original post. Looks like everyone's sample(s) came in today.

If you mooks wanted free Quik Clot you'd visit the first aid forum more often :P

Just added a set of clothes to the truck along with my danners.
Also relocated one of four maglights I had in my truck to the house and added 4 batteries for the maglights in the truck.

Today I cut wood with a buddy then used his range to get in some trigger time. Tested out the new (old) Mauser .308 I'm going to make into a Scout Rifle and shot my Springfield Ultra Carry and Glock 23.

It was a good day in all.

Debating about going to class or skipping it to go home. Another blizzard approaching.

I'll buy some cheap food to throw in my car, in case I get stuck in a blizzard.

Tomorrow, I'm putting my boots inside.

Fantastic post, Gunny!

Today I went for a 13 mile hike around the outskirts of my small, redneck town. Learned lots of new ins and outs between the 'real' roads, and I saw four Canada geese and one male and one female mallard. I took my newly made BOB (the one in my sig) and did yet another shakedown on it.
