Preparedness Notes for Monday — February 17, 2020

On this day in 1838, hundreds of Voortrekkers traveling along the Blaukraans River in the Natal region were massacred by Zulu tribesmen. This tragedy became known as the Weneen Massacre.

A reminder: Because I have some travel planned, a one-month shipping hiatus for Elk Creek Company will begin at 6 PM Thursday, February 27th, 2020. So if you want to order any antique guns, then get your order in soon!  Any orders received after February 27th will not be shipped until April 8th.

I just noticed that we are now down to less than 200 of the 2005-2019 waterproof SurvivalBlog archive USB sticks. This may be our last production run for the year, so order yours, pronto.

Today we present a review by our stalwart Field Gear Editor, Pat Cascio.
