I sold three 17 round Glock 17 mags for $150, and a 33 round Scherer brand 9mm Glock magazine for $75

Contact the author for verification. Reports were the Aurora Shooter wore body armor (possibly only a vest with mags), ballistic helmet, ballistic this & ballistic that....if he was wearing only one piece of a ballistic defeating material...then he was wearing body armor.

Also...even if a threat is not wearing "body armor"..

..but simply a LBV with layers of loaded steel AK mags..

..many reports of similar defeating 5.56 rounds out of SBR in the caves of Afganistan


But....this is the SPF...

..& I am not just preparing for what has happened..

..but if a Major SHTF...what might or likely will happen.


Like the story of the criminals in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina who raided the police armory for weapons..

..best to fully expect to encounter well armed bad guys with body armor during a Major SHTF/TEOTWAWKI..

..including feral LEO/Mil or imposters.


YMMV



Also...9 more Troy CBIR Battlemags on the way...(for 300 Blackout

..along with the 50 AR mags that arrived last Saturday.

Of course, It's a losing war to prepare only for what has happened, without being proactive or looking ahead.

I have an M4 type rifle loaded in my bedroom for many reasons, and this is one of them. Thugs get their hands on armour too.

But I still don't think a mass shooter has worn a bullet proof (resistant) vest, despite some of the media's short stroking reactions

I just put the funds I got selling some magazines to good use and pulled the trigger on the three items necessary to scope my Garand.

Leupold FX-II 2.5x28mm IER "Scout" scope
Ultimak M12 rail
Leupold 1" quick release scope rings

Can't wait!

Food, food , more food (long term storage, have about 6 mos supply now for 2 ) guns and ammo taken care of. Water plan in place. Fuel and cooking ability covered..great thing about living in south is that it is not that cold for a long period of time. Also looking at a 10 acre tract with barn and pond about 45 minutes from home.

I'm in GA - if you don't mind me asking what is the range of cost for that - you can PM me if you want.

Thanks

QRW's or throw-lever? I've had a nearly-monogamous love affair with qrw's ever since discovering them.

QRW.

But now the order has bounced back at me due to a weird thing with PayPal so it isn't set it stone yet, hopefully their customer service reads my email and gets things straight soon, but with the holiday, we'll see

I spent a couple hours researching which rings to get after ordering the scope last night. I knew from the moment I looked into this stuff over the summer that I'd eventually get an Ultimak rail and that Leupold scope...never thought to look into rings, though. These are the first stand alone set of just 'rings' I've ever purchased

Acreage and some improvements sounds reasonable.

Don't think you'll be disappointed. I've got them on my main & backup CAR's, my scout and several of my other carbines. They're great stuff.

Had my roof inspected and some preventative maintenance done.

Increased our mortgage payment again and started drawing it twice monthly rather than once. Will save a decent amount of interest in the end.

Enrolled in an employee stock purchase plan with my wife's company. (On top of both our 401k and liquid savings)

The wife canned another batch of jam and okra.

Took a young lady that has been accepted into the Air Force Academy shooting. Got her familiar with my AR and HK USP.

Bought some ammo.

Reopened the plans on a water harvesting and holding system.

I picked up the AAC Handi Rifle today and it did not disappoint.

The rifle has a 16.25" barrel and is 30" long overall.

When you look at it the first time, you'll think it's an SBR.

The fit and finish is good overall with a VERY tight breech lockup. My only complaint is that the breech release is very loose and has quite a bit of play. I don't know if this is fixable but I'm gonna try. The other thing I've read is that the rail was not loc-tited on at the factory so I took care of that today.

I didn't get to sight it in as I'm waiting on the loc-tite to cure but did take a couple of shots with a .45 Osprey and 208 grain subsonic ammo. I was VERY impressed and I believe that my RWS pellet gun is louder.

I plan on making a range trip tomorrow to see how it groups. I'll post a follow up in the next couple of days.

Well, it's been 'what have I done over the past several weeks'. One action that I took from the AWB panic was to get spare parts on order. Nothing that I've desperately needed, but stuff that was nice to have for a longer-term shortage. On the day of the CT tragedy, I ordered many 1000s of primers (small rifle and small pistol). Since then, I've ordered spare bolts, gas rings, carrier groups, bullets, magazines, and a charging handle that I've wanted for some time.

I bought a Bushmaster Carbon 15 for the old retail price of $799 through Gander Mountain.

A Shrubmaster. Really? What have I done?!

This craziness (well, stupidity and elitism and socialism and power grabs are at the core) has really changed the market.

Set up a new EDC back that gives me more room and options.

Bought a pack of 10 AAA to AA conversion adapters.

Bought a new ferro rod (4 inches long and almost a half inch thick) for $3.36 off ebay. Suppose to be 10K+ strikes.

Harvested a LOT of tomatoes and various greens in our garden and planted more kale.

Bought another 100 round value pack of 12g #8 bird shot.

Went to the flea market and bought a few more bandanas.

Went to the dollar store and bought some more rain ponchos, 12 pack of steel wool and dental floss.

Probably some other stuff but that's what comes to mind.

different response

Not running out and buying things.

1. converted vhs tapes to dvds. Packed up vcr and tapes for son.

2. did all my filing; making copies of selected cds to place in a different residence;

3. continued consolidation of items and culling unrepairable items;

4. identified worn furniture and computer equipment to be disposed of within the next month.

Why?

Your preparations are less valuable if disorganized, mingled with items that are worn, broken or don't work.

I will be trying to find the old police radio scanners in the next week and will dispose of them. Most of the transmissions are encoded these days, making this old technology just dust collectors.

Small points: Our Rights were not "given' to us by our founders. Nobody has the ability to give you that which is a Right. The Founding Fathers merely recognized that Rights, such as the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, existed, and that government could not legitimately deny those Rights.

The Founders didn't give us our Rights and the Constitution/Bill of Rights doe snot give us our Rights. They merely protect them.
