If you are just starting, good luck.
For the sake of the joke,
I didn’t mention that I started doing this two years ago.
Have enough grub and water for months;
generator fuel for a few weeks;
car-camping equipment for a short-term lam;
and more than enough ammo for a militia squad’s initial load-out.
.22 ammo will be the new currency. Also, stock up on things in common use: 223, 308,12g buck, 38,357,.40.
So, my vast collection of 25.06 ammo is untradeable? Dang, guess I’ll have to keep it.
Or take it boating. It likes boating. In bad weather.
25-06, now there’s a name I haven’t heard since…
I made a batch to feed a gunsmithing-class project on a Mauser action more’n fifteen years ago. Shot it all up on 100-yd paper-punching, though.
Prob’ly still have the 30-06>25-06 case re-sizing die around here somewhere.
(What? Oh, righhht)
…but all that might’a been lost in a tragic boating accident.
I’d add 9mm and .45acp to your list of trade goods and/or for use in “acquired” weapons.
If you’re stocking up you are making a prediction.
Each year this millenium has been crazier than the last, I’m not too optimistic about what’s worse than last year.
I predict I will survive 2023. Sue me if I’m wrong.
I don’t see much chance that 2023 will be any better than 2022. We still have to deal with Biden and all the other Dems. We still have Republicans who think that “go along to get along” is the right way to operate.
Close the damn border, NOW! Stop that foolishness about having more IRS agents than Border Patrol agents. No more money for useless windmills or subsidizing solar farms. We have OIL, dammit! And natural gas, and coal! We can build the absolute best, safest nuclear plants in the world.
But it’s not going to happen if the Republicans don’t stop stepping in their own attitudes and personalities. They already blew it back in November when they spent too much time and money believing their own self-serving press releases. Here’s a hint: if you can’t unite as REPUBLICANS and not just hyphenated Republicans, NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE! You should be focused on how you’re going to bring the voters back to the party, not so much on who gets to play with the gavel. Your goal for the next term should be November 5th, 2024.
Cut the crap and get to work, dammit!
“Nothing is going to change” as long as Mitch “Obama’s Bitch” McConnell is there. He is the fly in the ointment, the turd in the punch bowl of Republican power to change to a unified front that will do the right things and stand up to Dems and the Deep State. He has a huge campaign chest and power that can buy, isolate or intimidate any Repub that won’t queue up to kiss his ring and go along with his idea of how things should be. He and his near Chicom wife are tied to Chinese shipping and manufacturing, and he’ll not tolerate anybody with a thought that might slow that gravy train or diminish his power. He’s a turd long overdue for flushing.
We’ve been doing this for years. It’s a good feeling too. Wise.
