Always Be Ready

Always Be Ready

With the current state of the economy, and the ridiculous situations the new Administration have put us in, the survival mode in me has me getting my  ammo and gun supplies in swift order. First, finding the ammo you want is getting very hard, if not impossible. And buying a reasonable priced firearm is getting to be a thing of the past. I have already got my 7.62×39 supply where I want it, and also my 7.62x54R. Calibers in .223 and .308 are getting real scarce, and your usually available stock at places like Wal-Mart are simply drying up! New anti-gun legislation IS being proposed, as well as bringing back the “assault rifle” ban. When it’s all said and done, owning a few military surplus rifles might be  what the Dr. ordered. Get the ammo you need for them soon, and keep the rifles in tip-top shape. Buy your accessories now, if you need them. I think I am going to get another Mosin-Nagant rifle. Not sure if it will be a 91/30 model or another M44. I think if I had to take that in the woods, it would serve as a fine enough rifle to put some meat on the table.  I think ammo soon will be taxed so high, that it will be nearly impossible for the average person to buy it. And importation of lesser expensive surplus ammo, will probably be banned too. Part of the administration’s plan I’m sure. I don’t think I’m an alarmist, just precautionary. Things are adding up in a very funny way out there. Keep scouring the net, and if you find it, GET IT ! Be the one prepared, not the one who is sorry he isn’t.

It’s Time To Cling To Your Guns

buy 'em while you can

buy

Well I really didn’t want to use this blog for politics, but with a new president taking the helm in January, I have to advise people that now is the time to buy your ammo and any one of those NASTY LOOKING ASSAULT rifles before it is restricted to do so. The second amendment might not be in jeapardy as we speak, but mark my words, legislation restricting types of guns allowed for purchase, magazine capacities, and types of ammo is a very real threat. Give it a year or two and you will be sorry if you didn’t get your supplies in order ASAP.

It’s That Time Of Year Again

            With a couple of cooler nights in Florida, you kinda get a feeling that fall is actually here. But usually you won’t feel it until a major cold front sweeps the state, plunging us into the 40’s or 50’s. Hey, that’s cold when you have been sweltering in the mid 90’s all summer and the nights are in the low 80’s with 100% humidity making it hard to breathe. The itch for hunting is starting, and we can’t wait to scratch it. November is the deer season start, but hogs are fair game all year long. It’s just plain too hot now to think about it, but when the coolness sets in, it’s time to go. I just took out my 30-30 and cleaned her up. I think the scope is still “right on” so I won’t be going to the range. So with  my camo and a box of  150 grain softpoint, I’m on my way. I think the 30-30 is the absolute perfect rifle for a Florida hog. Great for any hog from 60-70lbs on up to about 200. I like them around 100lbs. Easier to drag out of the woods than big ones, easier to clean, and taste a whole lot better. Come on cold fronts!

Traded SKS For Ammo

                I had a hard decision to make. I traded my Chinese Sks for ammo. That was my first rifle I ever purchased and I have fond memories of it at the range and in the woods. But I just know with ammo prices and availability, I needed to make a “management decision”. I got plenty of .223 and some odd amounts of .308, 9mm, and even a box of 30-30. I just think a little ammo ahead is the thing to have. You can’t shoot your gun without ammo. It could become impossible to buy surplus, and regular ammo could get extremely expensive,  if it’s available. I still have my favorite rifles and will most likely hang on to those. But who knows. Also, ammo could become a hot commodity. When a hurricane is out there, its nice to have plenty of food and water, and a full tank of gas.

For All Those Who Need A Manual

   I realize there are sites that will sell you an SKS manual. For those who lost theirs or never got one, this is a great site I stumbled across while doing some sks surfing.  And it’s totally free!http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2007/08/23/sks-manual/

My Chinese Type 56 with Proper Sling

My Type 56
My Type 56

      I wanted this posted with the proper sling. I was waiting to get a new leather connector for it as the other one was tearing. This is a Chinese Norinco Type 56 with a properly mounted scope. Notice the mount is drilled and tapped into the receiver. I think this is really the only way to maintain zero. Also I have added a fixed 5 round hunting mag. Not the detachable one that seems to never work right. That is also some Norinco ammo in the stripper clip. The barrel is painted and stock refinished. A quick job on a $100.00 rifle.

How Fun Is Shooting A .22

         Out of all the rifles and pistols I’ve shot, I have a favorite. I enjoy shooting my .22 caliber rifle the most. I love my Ruger 10/22, and I love plinking at the range or woods with it. Its light, no recoil and cheap as hell to shoot a few hundred rounds at a time. Plus at 50 to 100 yards its easy to hit your target. Usually you can spot a can or bottle way off and with a scope, just tear it up. So much fun. Reminds me as a kid when you had your first BB gun. A .22 revolver was the first real gun I ever shot. Fond memories and lots of fun.
