    The prices aren't undercutting walmart and there are still a few wishful thinkers trying to get top dollar, but in general it seems some of the speculators might be ready to get out.

    This is good news! Thanks for the report, Conner. Now if it will just move on up to my area. :)

    I picked up 2 packages of Quick Clot today at a gun show. One was the older 'heated' version and the more expensive 'No Heat' version which was twice the cost at $45 versus $20. I had balked at these before, but figured it wouldn't hurt (no pun intended) to pick a couple up to add to my med kits. Both packages had a use by date of September of 2013.

    I am working on getting one with an 11 barrel for use on my SBR registered AR lowers, that is when I get the paperwork back.

    The rounds is optimized for an 11 inch barrel, nothing longer helps with velocity, but does keep you legal if you aren't going SBR

But i still find it a measure of discipline to not buy a FiveSeven or PS90 every time i walk into my dealer's business.
    I like the weapon as a survival weapon for the same reasons a 22LR is desirable. You can carry a lot of ammo easily, it is good for hunting small game.

    But it also has advantages. One is the level of power is much higher that a 22LR so it is a little better for defense. The range is also better and it shoots flatter.

    To cope with the ammo shortage... I bought a new handgun in a caliber that is easy to find. OK, I really just wanted it.

    I got a FN FiveSeveN. Bought 500 rounds of ss192 in person, ordered another 1000 of ss192 and 4000 ss197sr

    not bad when ammo is scarce. I'll take it to 10,000 rounds when my next cash inflow comes.

    for those in the Greenville, SC area that are new to the preparedness for WTSHTF who are considering a centerfire rifle- Wallyworld in Simpsonville has an abundant amount of .243. they also have plenty of 7mm Rem Mag, but i wouldn't suggest it to the firearms novice. The caliber of .243 can take large game in our neck of the woods, but also can be used for medium size game in our area.

    Welcome to the New America;
    Keep these things in mind: When you cannot run; You walk. When you cannot walk; You Crawl. When you cannot crawl; You find someone to carry you, or carry another, but you never give-up.
    Welcome to the New America.
    It is not dollars or price tags that make men free, or enslaves them. It is oppression. The oppression of free speech/ faith/ commerce/travel/ association/and defense that squashes freedom.
    It is not honest labour that oppresses but labour under the perjury of graft and taxes that enslaves. All taxes, fees and leves are a yoke upon freedom. There are PPL that will never be brain surgons, I am one of them, but I want the best brain surgeon in the hospital, not a person that got the job because they were 'other thasn white'. Should my life be decided by the woman that got the job because of her gene, not her qualifications? And what about Transgenderisms?
