Preparedness Notes for Monday — April 27, 2020

On this day in 1789, the crew of the British ship Bounty mutinied, setting Captain William Bligh and 18 sailors adrift in a launch in the South Pacific. This famous incident has inspired many novels, plays, and movies.

A reminder: My mail order antique gun business — Elk Creek Company — is on Pandemic Hiatus until May 4th.  I’ve taken this opportunity to re-stock heavily. This now includes some replica guns in obsolete (not factory produced) calibers such as .44 S&W Russian and .45-90 Winchester that qualify as No-FFL “antiques”, in most states. Take a look at our store page, and build your Wish List. Thanks.

  1. The .45-90 can be loaded down to .45-70 Gov’t, or loaded to nearly equal Modern .45-70 loads. Recoil is stout, so it is nice to have options. I still have a pound of IMR SR4759 that is good for reduced recoil loads, but it is no longer available. Trail Boss would easily tame this beast, and has become popular for Cowboy Action loads, but then where would be the fun?
