Just wondering if I am the only one that had an unresistable urge to clean, and double function check all of my SHTF gear.........

To make my sheeple mind feel better, I went out and bought anouther weeks worth of canned goods, water, and more ammo.

My stuff is good to go. But it's real safe here. I would hate to be in lower LA.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 9:35:42 AM EDT
Yep, not the only one. Something all of us have common. We can not resist the need/desire to be well prepared.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 9:39:22 AM EDT
I did so lastnight. I have the urge to check again today.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 9:40:27 AM EDT
Nope, but my guns are always good. I did debate buying a case of MRE's.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 9:41:48 AM EDT
Not much goin' on here in NY. Did see a gas tanker filling a local Cumbies - driver was getting yelled at by folks at the pump
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 9:42:43 AM EDT
I did... this mornin.

No, but that is a good idea.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 9:44:47 AM EDT
Last night while watching the news....also did an ammo check. Made sure I had at least 5,000 rounds. For the zombies.

another thing to check is your chemlites. they DO have expiration dates!

and instead of sleeping bags think about a poncho/pomcho liner instead. much smaller package and more flexible.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 3:24:46 PM EDT
I'm half feeling like I missed out on something.

I'm young, single and armed to the teeth.

I WANNA BE A WARLORD DAMMIT!

Link Posted: 9/1/2005 3:28:58 PM EDT
Hmmmm, when I got home from work last night I felt the urge to completely disassemble and clean my trunk gun. Oddly enough, when I put it back in my trunk this morning I also felt the urge to add a few more mags and a box of Surefire batteries as well.

No good reason for my behavior, no Sir.

Good idea.

Did you fill your motor car with petrol? I don't know, but all of this stuff happening here in the USA could affect the world gasoline supply. I hope not but you can't really tell.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 3:42:11 PM EDT
I did, found the extractor spring on the bolt of my M1 carbine broken in 4 pcs...

Good thing I had some of those Wolff springs handy.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 3:44:24 PM EDT
No more attention to the tools than usual. I am a little more thankful that I have them though. I am a little more thankful for my ammo stockpile. and my disaster supplies as well.

So is mine, but need to and want to are totally different
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 4:08:43 PM EDT
Yeah, my 10/22 and .38 are in tip top condition.


But then again so is my AR, and my PC9, and my G21 and my long range looter shooter.

My maglite has new batteries in it too.

Mine stay ready.

No, but I did empty, rinse and refill all of my 5 gallon water jugs. 'bout a teaspoon of bleach seems to do the trick for well over 6 months!

That and I compulsively purchased water filter #3!
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 4:45:29 PM EDT
I did not work the bolt on my AR15 several times while watching the news.

I did not turn on the red dot scope to make sure the batteries were fresh.

I did not load up a few extra magazines of pistol and rifle ammo.

At least that's what I'll tell anyone asking, cause I would have needed scuba gear to get to my guns anyway.

Well, I was loading clips this morning, and will be again later tonight.

Working on it now as I type.

Found out that I need another 500 rnds of 5.56.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 6:06:12 PM EDT
Did last night...and fucked up my XD by putting it back together wrong. Boy did that have the exact opposite effect of what I inteneded.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 6:08:34 PM EDT
... Not really, I assess my emergency equipment rather frequently

... Other than gas prices jumping 0.20¢ overnight you would never know there was a national emergency going on from this vantage point sans the media

... My behavior is a little more conservatively now, kinda like the weeks following 9/11, but no real changes. Got quite a nice Labor Day weekend ahead of us

... Everything will be just fine

i try never to let it get below half a tank. not only in case i have to get somewhere but i hear it displaces any moisture that might get into the tank as well...

Munchies in the kitchen, beer and soft drinks in the fridge, cigars in the humidor. Yep, I'm set for the long weekend.

Then I checked the ammo supplies... at least 1,500 rds of .223, 500+ rds 9mm, 250rds .30-06, 300rds .45, 250rds .44 mag, plus a bunch of .50 BMG in various flavors.

There's more, but I'm too lazy to type it all.

Basically, I have enough firearms and ammo to equip the whole block.



Yup, what he said...

I did ammo inventory and safe check yesterday. Also dropped off my FAL for refinish and barrel work to my local gun guru. I miss it already. At least the "others" will comfort me.
