    Affordable Calibers & Reloading

    John if you are not dead set against the Glock, I shoot 9mms through my .40 S&W’s to save a lot for practice. All you need is the proper drop-in barrel from Lone wolf or another maker and the proper magazine for the caliber you will shoot. This also works for shooting 10mm or .40 S&W through .45 ACP Glocks. Both the 9mm and .40 S&W offer savings over the host pistol, not so much the 10mm’s but with reloads there is savings all around with any of the drop in calibers.

    Glock Talk

    I have a .454 Cassull for hunting. For bear protection (not only hunting) I carry .45 Colt using Buffalo Bore ammo because you can repeat fire quickly (get more FP than a .44 Mag) - something you can not do with full bore .454. Whith a chargeing bear (or attacking wolf / lion) you want recoil under control for repeated fire capability .45 Colt in a .454 or Long Colt Revolver is good. So are the 10mm GLocks, which are good for hunting - but not as far out as the Casull.

    Glock Talk

    I have had & friends have had a couple and they have been fine. Even the tridium night sights were fine, and the price was good. Like any used gun, you should check out the individual gun before purchase or buy from a reputable seller.

    Actually I believe California and NY have recently passed “anti hoarding laws” which make it illegal to stockpile more than 7 days worth of food. Of course they can care less how much you have on now, but when they want it ...

    Four Tools for Survival

    If I were limited to four tools for survival I would take a knife of some sort, with at least a 3 inch blade. Since I am so limited on tools I will take a Leatherman - either a Charge or Wave, because it also has a saw and a second knife blade, plus other uses. Second I would take a tool to make fire easily, a Bic lighter will be sufficient, but a wind proof lighter would be fine also. Next I would take a folding saw with at least a ten inch blade. this is more efficient than a small hatchet for gathering fuel, building shelter & processing large game. A water container with internal filter, with metal cup if that is not considered a separate item. If this is not considered a tool? than I would take a firearm, a long gun if one was in reach but a hand gun is always loaded and on my person.
