Preparedness Notes for Friday — November 27, 2020

November 27th is the birthday of both SurvivalBlog’s Field Gear Editor, Pat Cascio [1], (pictured) and sci-fi novelist L. Sprague de Camp [2] (1907 – 2000).

Last Call! Our Friday of Color Week Sale at Elk Creek Company  [3]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 [4] 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.

SurvivalBlog Writing Contest

Today we present another entry for Round 91 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest [5]. The prizes for this round include:

First Prize:

  1. The photovoltaic power specialists at Quantum Harvest LLC  are providing a store-wide 10% off coupon [6]. Depending on the model chosen, this could be worth more than $2000.

  3. A course certificate from onPoint Tactical for the prize winner’s choice of three-day civilian courses [8], excluding those restricted for military or government teams. Three-day onPoint courses normally cost $795,
  4. DRD Tactical is providing a 5.56 NATO QD Billet upper [9]. These have hammer forged, chrome-lined barrels and a hard case, to go with your own AR lower. It will allow any standard AR-type rifle to have a quick change barrel. This can be assembled in less than one minute without the use of any tools. It also provides a compact carry capability in a hard case or in 3-day pack (a $1,100 value),
  5. Two cases of Mountain House freeze-dried assorted entrees [10] in #10 cans, courtesy of Ready Resources (a $350 value),
  6. A $250 gift certificate good for any product [11] from Sunflower Ammo,
  7. American Gunsmithing Institute (AGI) is providing a $300 certificate good towards any of their DVD training courses [12].

Second Prize:

  1. A Front Sight Lifetime Diamond Membership, providing lifetime free training at any Front Sight Nevada course, with no limit on repeating classes. This prize is courtesy of a SurvivalBlog reader who prefers to be anonymous.
  2. A Glock form factor SIRT laser training pistol and a SIRT AR-15/M4 [13] Laser Training Bolt, courtesy of Next Level Training, that have a combined retail value of $589,
  3. Two 1,000-foot spools of full mil-spec U.S.-made 750 paracord [14] (in-stock colors only) from www.TOUGHGRID.com (a $240 value).
  4. Naturally Cozy is donating a “Prepper Pack” Menstrual Kit.  This kit contains 18 pads and it comes vacuum-sealed for long term storage or slips easily into a bugout bag.  The value of this kit is $220.
  5. An assortment of products along with a one-hour consultation on health and wellness from Pruitt’s Tree Resin (a $265 value).

Third Prize:

  1. Three sets each [15] of made-in-USA regular and wide-mouth reusable canning lids. (This is a total of 300 lids and 600 gaskets.) This prize is courtesy of Harvest Guard (a $270 value)
  2. A Royal Berkey water filter, courtesy of [16] Directive 21 (a $275 value),
  3. Two Super Survival Pack seed collections [17], a $150 value, courtesy of Seed for Security, LLC,
  4. A transferable $150 purchase credit from Elk Creek Company [3], toward the purchase of any pre-1899 antique gun. There is no paperwork required for delivery of pre-1899 guns into most states, making them the last bastion of firearms purchasing privacy!

Round 91 ends on November 30th, so get busy writing and e-mail [18] us your entry. Remember that there is a 1,500-word minimum, and that articles on practical “how-to” skills for survival have an advantage in the judging.

German Shepherds are my favorite dog, Pat; on my fourth one. You also live in my favorite Oregon location, Southern. Happy birthday.

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