They also offer classes on various things like First Aid, OR and UT CCW.

They are trying to get more interest in classroom and open forum discussion of prepping as a community service and outreach. So far their prepping classes are offered free as a community service, people in other places pay money to get the information and discussion they are offering.

Their first offering wasn't heavily attended but it was a very comfortable relaxed setting and they had done some great research beforehand. The topic last time that we talked about was a Solar Flare CME or an EMP.
How they occur, what are the chances, what the effects could be and what we can do to mitigate the impacts to our ability to survive.

It's a great opportunity to get and share information and also to begin developing some safe Prepper networks.

I really appreciate what they are trying to do to support their community and want them to be successful so get the word out to anyone you know.

I get the impression that if they can get enough interest they will begin offering more classes on emergency preparedness on a host of scenarios.

Something like this is too good to let it die on the vine.

And did I mention that Larry and his staff are some of the nicest people I know? They have become my GO-TO LGS since I found them a few years back. They are so much more than just a Local Gun Store or Army Navy Surplus Store!

Be Prepared,
OBW
