SurvivalBlog presents another edition of The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods— a collection of news bits and pieces that are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper from “JWR”. Today, we focus on hidden gun safes.
Hidden Gun Safe Storage Options
You can definitely hide anything you want inside the storage space, but many of the following cater to firearms storage. This means their compartments usually come with foam that can be cut to match your gun(s) or magnets to hold it in place.
Most also have some type of locking system. Locks range from magnet-based to Bluetooth. These locks are intended to be simple to allow quick access in case of an emergency.”

In Venezuela, Bows and Arrows Against Tanks
H.L. sent us this from WND: In Venezuela, bows and arrows against tanks. Here are the first few paragraphs:
“Nicolas Maduro’s forces in Venezuela armed with tanks and live fire attacked an indigenous tribe armed only with bows and arrows in Venezuela when they tried to stop a convoy of humanitarian aid from Brazil.
One woman from the Pemon tribe was killed and 15 were wounded, but the tribe took several soldiers, including three lieutenants and a sergeant captive.
The battle took place in the remote Gran Sabana region near the Brazilian border.
The Pemon were successful at stopping the anti-riot troops in their effort to block food and supplies from entering the country through Brazil near the village of Kumarakapay, about 50 miles north of the border. The soldiers tried to breach barricades set up by residents about 6 a.m., said Jorge Perez, mayor of the Gran Sabana municipality.”

Never Go Full Jussie!
The latest from vlogger Matt Christiansen: LGBT Activist Burns Down Her Own Home in Hate Hoax — ‘Citizen of the Year’. JWR’s Comment: He/She/It should have known better: Never Go Full Jussie! Well, actually Joly only went 90% Jussie. Full Jussie would have meant accidental self-immolation, rather than just her rental house and pets.
H.R. 1112: Lost in a Background Check Loop
Here is a good explanatory video of a piece of pending Federal legislation with some sneaky wording: H.R. 1112 can purposely lose you in a background check loop. (Thanks to G.P. for the link.) JWR’s Comments: This law is definitely a bit of congressional subterfuge. Please contact your congressman and say NO to any and all new federal gun laws–especially H.R. 8 and H.R. 1112
Palmetto’s Sale on 62 and 55 Grain 5.56 Ammo
Palmetto State Armory (one of our fine affiliate advertisers) has announced a big sale on Federal 5.56mm 62gr Steel Core ammo. This is the great much sought-after (and once ban-threatened) “green tip” variety. They are selling 420 rounds on stripper clips, packed in a full mil spec ammo can for $139.99 shipping paid to anywhere in CONUS. And get this: Federal is presently offering a mail-in rebate, so your final cost will be just $118.99 per can. Keep in mind: The cost of 42 stripper clips and a new .30 caliber size ammo can if bought separately is around $25. So this is quite a bargain! At the Palmetto web site, put “XM855LC1 AC1” in their search box. Also on sale is Federal’s standard 55 grain FMJ ball, at $5.99 per box of 20, and just $4.99 per box after the rebate. They pay the shipping if you buy 25+ boxes. (It comes 25 boxes to a 500-round case.) Put “XM193” in their search box. My recommendation is simple, folks: Buy a bunch of this ammo! I certainly will. It is like money in the bank.
