At the very least, I do not expect ammo prices/availability to improve any time soon.
Availability seems to be slowly coming back as people reach their storage limits and the panic buying slows down. I'm sure a lot of barely used guns will start hitting pawn shops soon.

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

I'll also add that with the political and regulatory football Covid has become, clear and honest statistics/info is not always easy to obtain, and that any/all info obtained should be carefully viewed for evidence of bias, especially affirmative bias.

My very nice 10-30x50 Barska binocs were home of course, lost somewhere in my garage as we try to pack and move. Ditto for my 30-90x90 Barska spotting scope.

Re: When the police recommend you shelter in your basement, but you only have a crawlspace

One of my favorite childhood memories was working with my older brother and older cousins to make a punji trap in our grandmother's back yard. My Mom was horrified and immediately warned our grandmother where it was. I was the youngest one there, I have no idea what the psychopathic buffoons were t...

Double failure. :ohdear: Okay, I should be able t...

Re: Possible bug-out rig

The biggest downside is it's got the 80/20 bench rather than console, but if I decide it's a big enough deal apparently that's swappable. Yeah, that's how I ended up with a pair of $200 seats for my Dakota sitting in my spare room for the last ten years. We were trying to replace a driver's seat wi...

Re: Money, money, money

Burying a pelican case or pipe filled with foreign currency strikes me as a great way to lose it. The gun safe is probably a far safer place to store it. Even a couch cushion would be safer. But if you REALLY want to bury it, you're welcome to come bury it in my garden. Maybe someone already did. 8...

You do not need a pelican case; a link to a simple PVC pipe cache that can work nicely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUogyKl4IYE&ab_channel=JohnRourke Note if you use this method condensation is also possible so be sure the water proof the contents. Also I suggest using a marine sealant like 3M ...

Picked up a Crimson Trace CTS-25 red dot optic today from Academy (first time in a couple months I was able to get to the local one) along with a spare parts kit from XTS for my AR and a Magpul ladder rail panel. Paid about 70 bucks for the CTS-25, which surprised me since I figured Crimson Trace s...
