Notes from JWR:

The following was forwarded by SurvivalBlog reader:

“I pledge, in honor of the late Charlton Heston, that if I receive any funds from the US Government’s economic stimulus rebate program that I will spend the money on guns and ammo.” (Pass it on.) The only thing that I’d add to that is firearms training.

Today we present another article for Round 16 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest. The writer of the best non-fiction article will win two valuable four day “gray” transferable Front Sight course certificates. (Worth up to $4,000!) Second prize is a copy of my “Rawles Gets You Ready” preparedness course, generously donated by Jake Stafford of Arbogast Publishing. Round 16 ends on May 31st, so get busy writing and e-mail us your entries. Remember that articles that relate practical “how to” skills for survival will have an advantage in the judging.
