Well, here's a 50 round box for 18.99. Multiply by 10, lol. I found another website with the same deal, but they were sold out.

Ironic that you mentioned an SKS. I woke up this morning thinking about them, grabbed my phone, and started Googling them. They're fairly low cost I see. I don't know anything about them, and I own an AR so I don't really need one. It seems like it could be handy though especially since they're not costly. I haven't researched the ammo yet though, and the last thing I need is yet another firearm that can't use the same ammo as my other menagerie. If nothing else it'd be a darn nice bartering item.

 

Happy shooting, friend.

 

 

As another prep today, my Kershaw Leek malfunctioned so I immediately printed out a warranty form, took it to the post office, ticked off the clerk (sorry, Bob), and sent it in for warranty repair. I then went to Walmart looking for a substitute Leek since I've seen them there before, but they didn't have any so I'll be Leek-less for up to six weeks. Sad. Anyway I did pickup a new pair of sunglasses. Broke my old pair earlier this week. The drive home was nice and UV free.

Been reading " When Hell Breaks Loose..." by Cody Lundin. (Very informative book, I would recommend to anyone.) Bought a small used generator for $75 the other day, and a good running chainsaw this morning for 30 bucks. Picked up a couple Homer buckets with lids from the local Home Depot, and I'll get a couple pounds of dry goods when I go grocery shopping later. Also caught a great deal at Wally World recently and scored generic Aspirin, Acetominophen, Benadryl, ibuprofen, and bottles of alcohol for 88 cents each.

Quite a few things accomplished since my last post.

 

I acquired an SKS from a coworker. Finally found some magazines that seem to function perfectly. Just disassembled the thing and am cleaning all the pieces up.

 

The wife came home from shopping with some #10 cans of dehydrated fruit and some honey. (She has a sweet tooth-LOL!) Also I ordered some canned meats from Deal Sgt. 28 oz cans for 11.99 and they guarantee 15 years storage. Seemed like a good deal to me....ordered 6 cans to see what they are like.

Yesterday a buddy of mine had some 1/4 inch thick by 3 inch wide by 12 inch long ArmOx steel that were cut off from Armour plates. I desided to use a grinder to make afew knives with them. It was fun making them for the first time. Not sure how they will hold out in a long term use though, time will tell. I'll post afew pictures later this week. When i'm done.

Picked up a spiffy little flashlight this evening at WalMart, its a waterproof LED light that will run on AA, AAA, or C batteries. Not bad for 12 bucks, I thought. Packed away some more food and now I'm gonna relax and make something out of paracord.
