An unpleasant aspect of preparedness

June 20, 2020

I’ve written a few things about preparedness. You can find them by using the search feature and the single word “preparedness.” I could link to them here, but I’m feeling lazy, today. Preparedness is about a lot more than guns. Even as much as I like things that go bang, guns are tools that are useful in a very limited number of situations. If you are new to the concept of preparedness and were open to my unasked for advice, it would be that most preparedness needs can be solved with four things:

  • Skills, skills and more skills
  • Water
  • Food
  • A solid, real world plan

Still, firearms have their place in that real world plan, even though anyone in his/her right mind hopes fervently to never truly need them. But, if you do need them, nothing else will suffice for that immediate and desperate need. That need, should it ever arise, is the basis for the “unpleasant” part of this post’s title. Guns, however, to be effective, need ammunition. Which brings me to my latest preparedness step. It’s one I’ve sort of avoided for a while, not because of a lack of interest, but because of time and financial constraints. I give you, the reloading bench.

It’s also where I write, but I think (or hope, anyway) that there’s enough space for both. We’ll see how it goes.

    I’m stocking up on the ready made stuff… I don’t like to get low on any calibers I shoot. And primers are getting hard to come by.
