I just heard that Paul Harvey passed away. He was a fine, patriotic American. Appropriately, two of today’s blog posts deal with “The Rest of the Story.” Someday, we’ll meet Paul in heaven. And also Paul, formerly Saul of Tarsus.
The high bid in the SurvivalBlog Benefit Auction  is now at $935. This auction is for a large mixed lot, which includes::
1.) Another “be ready to barter” box of 38 full-capacity gun magazines, from my personal collection in JASBORR . This box includes: 4 – Used original East German 30 rd. steel AK-47 magazines in a “raindrop” camouflage pattern belt pouch, 12 – Excellent-to-new condition original Bundeswehr contract HK91 (G3) alloy 20 round magazines, 6 – Well-used but serviceable condition original Austrian FN-FAL steel 20 round magazines with cartridge counter holes, 10 – Used AR-15/M16 USGI (all Colt made!) alloy 20 round magazines, and 6 – Excellent to new condition original (Norwegian contract) Glock Model 17 9mm 17 round pistol magazines (early type, with “U” notch). All of these magazines are of pre-1994 manufacture (and hence legal to possess in New York.) These magazines have a combined value of approximately $700, in today’s market. Note: If you live in a state where full capacity magazines are banned, then you must choose to: refrain from bidding, or designate a recipient in an unrestricted state, or re-donate the magazines for a subsequent auction.

3.) A NukAlert compact radiation detector donated by at KI4U.com (a $160 retail value).
