  2. Walmart finally has ammo on clearance.

    Firearms General Discussion
    At least the ones in my area. It sure took them a long time. The cases had been packed for months since they said they were going to stop all handgun and 'military' ammo. Federal .223 or Winchester 5.56 25 cents a round. I picked up JHP 240 gr. .44 Mag for $30 for 50. (White box) and...

  6. MP5 clone in 22 long rifle for SHTF?

    Military Weapons Forum
    Does anyone think an MP5 clone chambered in 22 long rifle would have a role in a SHTF / Doomsday event? Awhile back I did some horse trading and ended up with a Walther MP5 clone in 22 long rifle. I am sure if loaded with something like CCI stingers the MP5 clone would do its job quit well. I...

  8. SHTF Killing Small Game

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So my plan for hunting small game in a SHTF scenario was to use my .223 and go for headshots on bunnies and squirrels, which obviously isn't ideal. I also have a 9mm. Also not ideal. Those calibers will both decimate game that small, and they're also extremely loud, which in a WROL situation is...

  10. What are your economic indicators?

    Manmade and Natural Disasters
    What are your economic indicators? In other words, how do you determine if the general public is worried about uncertain times? Besides all the information the government publishes, I use three indicators. The local feed and fertilizer / farm supply store On Friday, May 22nd I was at Circle...

    The shelves are empty, except for a few select calibers. Those calibers are 243 Winchester, 30-30 Winchester, 270 Winchester, 7mm magnum, 45 colt and 30-06 Springfield. A line of people are standing at the counter in the hopes the store got a shipment in. Sounds like something from a movie...

  16. Survival gear preps for second quarter 2012

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    While stockpiling survival gear for a long term SHTF / TEOTWAWKI situation, I think it is important to pause, review, and then move forward. It does no good to stockpile the same thing over and over, while overlooking other essential preps. The changing of the seasons, a new year, or every 3 –...
