Odds ‘n Sods:

I just discovered that SurvivalBlog reader Matt C. has his own blog: www.parallaxadjustment.blogspot.com. Matt’s blog centers on his tactical firearms training. He is a regular shooter at a weekly class taught by a certified CHL/Lethal Use of Force trainer. Matt chronicles these lessons and passes on some great pearls of wisdom. Be forewarned that he uses a bit of off-color humor and language, but I recommend his blog. Good stuff.

I heard that George at The Pre-1899 Specialist has put some of his hand selected Model 1893  8x57mm Oberndorf Mauser bolt action rifles (German made, Turkish contract) on sale for $169 plus shipping. See:  http://www.antiquefirearms.org/blog.html. NO FFL is required for shipping right to your doorstep, in most states.
