A few goodies from the gun show…..
Military compress bandages, individually sealed – $1 ea.
NBC suit stuff sack (these make great sleeping bag sacks) – $10 ea.
CFP-90 Daypacks – $50
So, naturally, I picked up a little of everything. They also had spam cans of lifeboat rations at $1 per can but other than novelty value, I couldnt see any need for them.
I need to buy a router (the woodworking tool, thank you). I need one so I can make some seriously indestructo shelves for the basement. One drawback to stocking up on..well..everything…is that you need a place to put it. I’ve an entire basement to use, I just need to get some good shelving up that can handle heavy loads.
Need more ammo cans.
Working on an ‘all in one kit’ for one of my spare .38′s. For the guns I ‘lay back’ in storage, I try to keep them together with literally everything that they’d need for support. For example, my extra Model 10 is in a tall .50 cal can with holster, speedloaders, speedloader pouches, belt, squib rod, patches, jags, mops, solvent, patches, toothpicks, screwdrivers, brass hammer, spare grips, ammo, 310 tool in .38, mold and sizer, desicant, exploded disgram, springs, plastic bag, oil, etc, etc. (Do not comment and say ‘Hey, you forgot…’..thats what the etc. is)
Point being that each pistol is packed with everything you’d need to shoot it indefinitely as long as you could come up with ammo. Plus, its nice to have everything in one place. Should I ever need to leave in a hurry I can grab that ammo can and know I have everything I need for that particular gun. Or, if I need to loan it out to an LMI, I can just hand ‘em the ammo can and tell ‘em its a complete everything-you-need package.
Need to purchase a couple large maps and make a mapwall of the county…always good to have five ways in and ten ways out, y’know?
