November 27th is the birthday of both SurvivalBlog’s Field Gear Editor, Pat Cascio, (pictured) and sci-fi novelist L. Sprague de Camp (1907 – 2000).
Last Call! Our Friday of Color Week Sale at Elk Creek Company ends at midnight tonight (Friday, November 27, 2020.) Note the sharply-reduced prices. Keep in mind that I’ll be traveling for the entire month of December, and therefore I’ll be putting the company on an order-taking hiatus. So this is your last chance to buy a few pre-1899 antique guns from us in 2020. Our small inventory is selling more quickly than I can re-stock it.
And speaking of Black Friday sales: Ready Made Resources is having one of their biggest sales of the year. They are presently offering AN/PVS-14 Dual Tube Night Vision monocular/weapon sights with RNVG White Phosphor Photonis Premium Specification Tubes — with over 1800 FOM. They have just available at the $6,295 sale price. Financing is available.

Dogs around the place are the best security alarms. … Big or small, people have been using dogs for security, since Caveman Days.
Happy Birthday Pat!
