Good thing ta think 'bout...

Don't know if yer keepin' track o' the coronavirus, but it's a comin'...

Supply chains worldwide 're breakin', an' soon, only local goods will get from here ta there. Fer a while, that is...

Best ya order yer ammo, spares, an' new gear, like holsters, slings, gun oil, brushes, ect...

Just got ma last order o' ammo- 2 500rd cases o' Remington RPT357M1, from:

US Armorment, The Art & Science of Shooting

Ordered it 02/10/2020, from Barrington, NJ, an' received it this mornin', 02/15/2020. Real good service, shipped FedEx, an' really enjoy their professionalism. Great price, too...

So, while ya can, stock up. If'n ya haven't geared up, do so. Won't be long, 'afore ya cain't get anythin'...

Good Luck, pack heavy, an' walk real light...

We have plenty of Corona beer here on the east side of the state, good-lookin-out though. Lol.

In my opinion, the Coronavirus has nothing on the scar left by the Obama era. lol

If people aren't already stocked up, especially by now during an election year, they need to get moving for sure. This virus is probably going to affect supplies on the shelves... at least the stuff coming from China and increase the prices of the products that don't come from China.

I know one thing, even if you have more than enough, you will still have to stock up more for your friends and family that Never think ahead. lol

Well Done, Corndog. Thinkin' ahead. No lines fer yuh. What about high quality US made masks, N100, reusable, 3M, with bayonet filters ta screen out gases an' biologicals? Tyvec suits? Different sized disposable gloves (wear one inside th' other)? Quality outer "glasses" that breath out, but not leak in? Most expensive is th' replaceable flters fer yer masks...

Everybody needs ta read Cat Ellis' outstanding book, The Wuhan Coronovirus Survival Manual
How to Prepare for Pandemics and Quarantines, (nCoV-2019, Covid-19 (2019 Edition)
.
Now available on Amazon- books and ebooks...

Vauable, worthwhile book!!

Good Luck an' God Speed,

Pharmacies all over town are out of a prescription medicine I take. A key component is made primarily in Hubei Province.

Interesting. My pharmacy was out of stock on the BP meds I've been taking for the past 10 years. Doctor substituted a two pill combination for it.

Any chance fish or animal meds would work? Talk ta yer vet, an' see if there is a crossover type drug... Usually th' same, but lots cheaper...

Good Luck,

A Vet writing a prescription for a human is illegal, period. What Vet is going to risk loosing his license? Also non human drugs are made to a different standard than human meds. Only a fool would take animal meds.

Prophetic - we’re now a little over a month since original post and ammunition availability is pretty scarce. My “local “ (35 miles away) was running low/out a week ago on both guns and ammo. A couple days ago announced temporarily closed for next couple of weeks. Checked LG a few days ago and they were out of some calibers. Glad that I, like a great many of you, learned from the past and have not been caught short-handed.

old rock mantra: too much is never enough.
