David in Israel Recommends: When purchasing a proper long life bicycle don’t even consider Wal-Mart or other big box stores. Your local bike shop has proper mechanics tools and trained staff who can help you find a bike to meet your needs. tell them that you have always considered a long bike trek in Mexico or some third world nation and will need durable components. A cheap Chinese import bike will usually turn you off from cycling before you even get started and the component life span is not very good. Your cycle is much like your rifle a proper investment and skilled maintenance is required to keep it in top shape.

The Pre-1899 Specialist is continuing their sale on hand-picked Model 1893 Oberndorf Mauser rifles, at just $179.95 each, (with bayonet and scabbard) or $159.95 each if you buy two.) As previously mentioned, this certainly beats paying Sportsman’s Guide $299 for one in rougher condition. I recommend that every SurvivalBlog reader buy one or two of these from The Pre-1899 Specialist, while they still have some left. (They are going fast and they don’t have many left.) No FFL is required since they are Federally exempt. No paperwork is required for most locales. (Even California!)
