I know that today is Sunday, and that we usually do this post on Saturday, but something came up yesterday, so we are going to post this today instead… Hey, look at the bright side, at least we all had an extra day to get more stuff done.
But before we start, I would like to give a shout-out and say thank you to Cheryl D, Brenda C, and Sherry S – thank you ladies, your support of this blog is greatly appreciated. If you too, would like to show your support via a monetary contribution, you can do that by clicking on this link.
Okay, now let me see what did I do to prep this week?
This week; I did a little “gun trading” if you remember a few months back I purchased a Ruger 1911 (a great handgun), well this week I ended up trading it to a new Glock 26. The Glock 26 is lighter, smaller, holds more rounds, is more reliable, 9mm ammo is cheaper to stock-up with than .45 ACP, plus I have plenty of 9mm ammo cached away so no need to buy more ammo, and I can shoot it just as accurately as I could the Ruger.
On the same note, I’m making the Glock even better by installing TRUGLO Glock Low Tritium Sights and installing an extended mag and slide release – parts have been ordered but have not arrived yet. I also ordered this holster for concealed carry of the Glock 26…
This week, I also did some work on my raised garden beds to get them ready for planting in a few months – right now I have five 4X8′ raised garden beds and one 4X16. I also have two of the garden towers from “The Garden Tower Project” that I use to grow strawberries. This year I’m also going to expand my garden area by tilling up a 10 X 30′ area to plant sweet corn and potatoes.
And the big purchase this week was 12 of the One Month Packs of “everyday sized” cans from Augason Farms. I also added some more canned goods (mostly soup) and rice from the supermarket.
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling an even more urgency to prep harder than ever before – my gut, research, and my big over-sized brain, are telling me that something bad is happening or is just a few months away. Personally, I think it’s going to be an economic collapse or major pandemic that will be used as an excuse to declare full martial law nation wide.
Well that’s it for me this week – what about you? What did you do to prep this week?
