  1. There is an online firearms classified ads list called armslist. I found out about it recently. I checked out the one for Arizona as that is where I live. You can search by community like for example like Tucson. I was looking for ammunition ads. There were quite a few postings including ones with 9mm and .223. The prices are high but at least there is some available if one wants to check out the ads. I have been in AZ for several years and did not know about this website. My comment is mostly directly
    to Arizona readers. Good hunting.

    1. I’ve had some good luck on Armslist picking up deals. It’s not an auction like gunbroker but there is always negotiation with the sellers. Some are gun shops so totally legit and many will ship. Some are private sales and done face to face. There are scams. I was looking at a Kimber .45 with a super price. Emailed the seller several times with no response and the ad is still up. I really don’t know what is in it for them. But it was a definite time waster for me.

    1. For those not familiar with Mors Kochanski, he is the real deal. Love all his videos. (His name was Morris but was mistakenly written down as Mors when he and his Mother emigrated).

    2. Excellent comments. My sweet spouse came back from a winter retreat with the news that she had learned how to build a quinzee. Simple and quick. However, you do require snow.


      A quinzee is a simple shelter made by hollowing out a big pile of snow. They can take several hours to build, but are an effective way to stay warm when camping in the winter. Here’s how to build one.

      I reckon we will practice this winter.

      Carry on

  3. Mystery Ranch makes outstanding gear. I have several of their products, some I have beat the dickens out of, and they still perform magnificently. I carry their Vehicle IFAK every day, packed to the gills with medical gear. The rucksack I have is the same one issued to MARSOC, and is without a doubt the best rucksack/backpack I’ve ever used. I wish I’d had it when I was on active duty! Highly recommended!

  4. Might I recommend buying several copies of the Holy Bible? In case the overlords start trying to make it disappear. Like they are already doing to some people on social media

    1. Duane… TY so very much for sharing that thought… my wife and I have done that as a part of our preparations… we firmly believe the home church will happen….might I also suggest commentaries as well … Matthew Henry… Adam Clarke… Albert Barnes … John Gill… C.H.Spurgeon … Jameson Faucett Brown…we are truly in a spiritual battle and must put on the armor of God Almighty
