From the Desk of John Rourke – December 3rd, 2014

The Walking Dead’s last episode this past Sunday until February was pretty good. I am really impressed with how the writers of the show keep it fresh – and the viewers wondering what is going to happen next. I can’t believe they haven’t come out with a spin-off yet. Fan’s can’t get enough.

I miss simpler times. I could write an entire post on just that statement but it is true. Remember as a child not having a care in the world? Well, you may have thought you had problems but whether or not you get a toy while at the store is pretty small. I remember always feeling comfortable knowing that my mom and dad would take care of me and provide whatever was needed – no matter what.  This is one of the reasons I got into preparedness. After my first was born I felt an overwhelming sense of responsibility to keep him safe – no matter what.

I am thinking if silver drops to the $10 or $12 per ounce range I will put some back. It will eventually go back up – way up.

Now is a great time to stock up on anything gun related. Supply is high therefore price is down. AR’s are plentiful and $500 can get you an entry level model if you look around. Magazines for AK’s and AR’s are the cheap, reliable, and available.  Pistol magazines the same except not so cheap. Ammunition supply is the best I have seen in the last couple of years. Stock up now because tomes will change and you don’t want to look back and think – “I knew I should have stocked up more…..”.

  1. Walking Dead does have a spinoff in the works, and they just announced the first two cast members today. Now we will have two hours a week where my wife will hide under her snowmen blanket for security! Apparently me, and all my firepower isn’t enough… ahh well. Guess I haven’t purchased enough ammo…
