Second, how utterly cool is this? I’ve seen a few prepackaged survival kits from the Cold War but I’ve never seen one packaged in a tin like this. I can’t help but think that tin was the plastic 5-gallon-bucket of its day. Fascinating.
And speaking of other cool things, I found this on a Tumblr link:
Is that gorgeous or what? I have a Ruger Scout Rifle with a stock that is eerily identical to that. I’m not sure about the practicality of the Scout Rifle, but I admire the logic that goes into making the gear selections necessary to meet the ‘Scout’ guidelines. The SMLE is an interesting choice, but offers pretty much everything you need…magazine fed, stripper clip guide, rugged action, etc. The cartridge is a tad funky, but if that’s a deal breaker there are always Ishapore .308’s to use as a platform. Really, though, I have a Scout Rifle and I just can’t really put my finger on what I would use it for.
Free shipping at Walmart prices on certain goods means that I might have a new source for case-lots of various foodstuffs and supplies. Honestly, Im not sure WalMart can afford to do this for very long, but while it’s going on I’ll definitely be seeing if its something I can take advantage of. Cases of canned goods, pasta, sauces, etc, etc delivered to my AO would be rather handy…especially if it gives me access to items not normally in my local WallyWorld.
You know, if the feds feel that enforcing federal law is strictly their domain, and come down on states when they try to enforce immigration law, then it seems it should cut both ways and that states can simply choose to ignore enforcing federal NFA laws.
================================== Reminder: A dozen 10/22 mags for $104 delivered.
From now on, when the topic comes up, I’m going to call them “reasonable, common-sense controls on immigration” and see what happens. If they’re really obtuse, I might throw in “if it saves just one life…”.
The Metals Pimp dropped off a shiny Silver Eagle the other day saying it was from a customer who told him to send one my way.
This happens from time to time. And I am always tickled when it does.
So, unknown benefactor, when the apocalypse comes and all the paper money is worthless, I shall drink a toast to your generosity as I purchase home-brewed brain eraser to ease my mind after a long day of hanging looters and shooting cannibal mutants. And lap dances. There’ll definitely be a lap dance or two. Thank you and salut!
Someday, man…. someday, i’m going to buy a chunk of nowhere, bushwhack in there with a four-wheeler pulling a small cement mixer, shuttle in a some lumber and a whole lotta bags of concrete, and build my happy little hideyhole. I just hope its sooner rather than later, before Im too old.
Vendors expecting a Hillary buying panic cranked up production and….now have a lot of inventory they need to convert to cash. Thats why we see those sub-$400 AR’s and $30 stripped lowers recently advertised.
One of my vendors just dumped a bunch of Butler Creek 10/22 Hot Lips 25-rd mags in my lap. If anyone wants some, theyre $104/12 ($8.66 Ea.), inc. shipping. Any interest or questions, hit me up in email, not comments… zero (a t) commanderzero.com
One of…’several’ (ahem!)..cases of mags that are looking for new homes.
Our morbidly obese, and terminally leftist, alcoholic mayor somehow decided that this was a ting that needed to be done. The biggest and oldest gun show in the state happens here every summer and it would have been a tremendous problem if this stupid thing to stand.
Experience is a harsh instructor, but some will learn at the hands of no other.
