I try not to do New Years resolutions because, honestly, if something is a good enough idea that its worth being a resolution, then it is probably a good enough idea that you shouldnt wait until January 1 to implement it. Makes sense, right? But we all like having that clean slate on the calendar when we flip the page from December to January.
I’ve got a few things I would like to do differently this year, but Im going to keep them to myself for a while to see if I stick with them. However, if youve made some New Year’s resolutions in regard to preparedness I wouldn’t mind hearing them, if youre willing to share.
This has been bouncing around for a few days and is too useful to pass up: Top Ten Survival Downloads You Should Have. I already had most of them, but its still some great reading.
Ruger continues to try to stay relevant in the gun industry. Their new Scout rifle caught my eye and now theyre coming out with a mini 9mm. Not sure I’d prefer this over a Glock 26 but it is definitely further proof that innovation (if you can call copying KelTec designs innovation) has been let out of the cage since Billy Ruger left the biological plane of existence.
Trivia question: anyone know of a 9mm pistol that utilizes a locked breech of some kind but also a fixed barrel? The HK P7 springs to mind but thats really a delayed blowback rather than a mechanical locking.
Ordered up one of these last week. Retail is running around $500 but this guy had ‘em used for $75 each. Well, at that price who could resist? It’ll be pushing the threshold of ‘man portable’ once it’s loaded with a dozen rifles but it should do an outstanding job of keeping them protected under even the worst conditinos. Pictures and details when they arrive.
