Our Editor At Large (Michael Z. Williamson) wrote to mention that there have been several new “underground homes” added to the 20th Century Castles (aka MissileBases.com) web site. JWR Notes: These are far beyond my budget, but interesting, nonetheless.

I was pleased to see that the Atlas Trekker blog is now getting frequent updates. They’ve had some great posts on vehicular gear.

Some folks seem that think that pump action shotguns are obsolete. I beg to differ. Courtesy of Michael Bane, here is a video of a reloading technique for advanced shooters that can keep a shotgun that has been “shot dry” or even one with a dented magazine tube still in the fight: Jasmine Jessie’s reloading technique. (To explain: under some local Cowboy Action Shooting rules, to “make it fair”, a shotgun’s loading is limited to just two shells. This puts pump gun shooters on a fairly level playing field with double-barrel shotgun shooters. Hence the need for rapid reloading, by hand.) For more information on this fun sport, see the SASS web site.

A reminder that SurvivalBlog reader had a small batch of subdued Battle of Bennington flag shoulder patches custom made. This is the same flag used on our OPSEC hats and T-shirts, but in subdued brown and black colors. He now has less that 50 left, that he is now selling right near his cost, at $2.75 each.
