Hmmm…the available armaments to me at the moment are a Sig .40 with 150 rds of ammo(two mags), a Sig .380 with 250 rounds of ammo (one mag) and a 12 ga. with no ammo. Not quite naked, but not nearly my first choice for being in a major
target city like Chicago. On the other hand, Louis Farrakhans place is about a dozen blocks from here so I could always loot his compound ’cause you know he’s gonna have some hardware there for him and his Fruitcakes of Islam.
Have I mentioned the irony that would occur should things get Really Weird and all my gear and preps are 1500 miles away? Tremendous suckage, that.
So, this just reminds me I need to come up with a fairly inexpensive, disposable and adequate package of travel guns. The easiest would be an SKS and a .38 revolver. That way if something happened to them Id only be out $300. But I rather like ammo commonality so a 9mm carbine and pistol combo would be very nice….but while I can get a cheap 9mm Ruger pistol, the complimentary Ruger P9 carbine is NOT cheap. And while I could get a relatively cheap KelTec 9mm Sub2000 carbine, the Glock pistol to go with it wouldnt be cheap. A .357 revolver and Marlin carbine would be a great choice, but the marlin is still more than $300.
Other items I travel with…my Gerber Parabellum folder, SureFire tactical light, LED tasklight, and a few other small items that might give me an advantage.
My dad doesnt even have a good tactical flashlight to keep on his nightstand. There may be a SureFire Nitrolon in his future.
In addition to thundertoys, I’d like to pack up a small container of essentials for travel that I’d want around in case things Get Ugly. Some food, water filter, compress bandages, flashlight and batteries, lightsticks, binoculars, body armour, etc, etc. (Hmmm..I should give this some more thought and come up with a list)
