    Don`t Forget the Inevitable is Comming.

    I worked part time years ago blending lead to make #2 alloy for a local comm. reloading company. Melt 200 to 300 lbs a day on Sat. in a small shed (12 X 14 with window fan ventilation and have my blood tested several times no trace of lead......I believe it a good means to shoot alot for less. I have shot thousand of round thru 1911's 230 gr RN cast bullet, I keep several hundred lbs of #2 alloy for shooting. Does take that much to get started, alot cheaper than shoot jacket bullets, jacket bullet,primers, gun power cost have gone up. It takes me six hours to cast,size 500 230 gr r/n bullets............I will try to figure my cost

    Tracking

    My great uncle always taught us to just set and listen to the woods and watch the animals........he believed that bring home food from the woods was just bonus of time spent in the outdoors. It has always amazed me what you can learn if you just look-listen-respect the outdoors. Learned animal track ID in Boy Scouts, tracking from Great Uncle.

    Remember when

    I have bought gas for .32 9/10 .....Nehi soda .15 cents.. milk, eggs ,veg's and most meat came off the farm I was raised on ............Red Skelton, Jackie Gleason, were bigest hits on tv. Beer came in long neck bottles from a bootlegger (Dry County). Were we happier................No one was on welfare....we took care of our own.

    Remington 1917 Pattern rifle question

    I have a Remington model 30 in 30-06 that belonged to my Grandfather, very strong beefy action, I also have a Eddystone 30-06 in orginal military hardware, only thing I would recommend is getting a cock on opening bolt. My Remington has alway been a good shooter. Alot of the original 1917 pattern rifle have been sportized, don't see many in military issue.

    Quality or Quantity

    I try to buy quality when it come to shoes or boots, firearms. Flea markets & yard sales are great places to get quality items at reduced cost. I believe buy the best you can afford..................I seen alot of friends and other try to skimp on quality and regret it later, when it could be a real problem....I have been on 8 to 10 day hunting trips and seen to many guys get pissed over failed low quality gear.

    Accommodations for likely drop-ins?

    The only things I can pass on is as follows: Granda parents both sides preppers, it was a way of life for them. Lived there faith daily and taught it to their children. My parents both passed this on to children and granda children. Family center of everything. We were all taught Ten Commandments good rules to live by, this came from Great grand parents. Story telling about ancestor very important. Talk with your families, love, caring and honesty.......................it works But like i said above sometimes it is not easy

    Accommodations for likely drop-ins?

    I came up with a plan a few years ago, that seem to work. Between daughters w/husbands, son w/wife, a child for each. Two brothers, one sister, w/there husband and seveal children, Mother and so on.......every four months for the last two years we gather and into a common fund goes money for food storage or other items which would be shared, each family group also has there own supplies, we have a few acres that we share.....................do we sometimes have disagreements yes, but we work it out.
