Preparedness Notes for Friday — November 26, 2021

November 26th is the birthday of both gun inventor Eugene Reising (born 1884, died February 21, 1967) and the late Barton Biggs (born 1932, died July 14, 2012).  Biggs was a money manager known for his pro-preparedness stance. Pictured is a Reising submachinegun.
