From the Desk of John Rourke – February 24th, 2015

Some of you may have notice that several of the ads have disappeared. Over the next few months several more will disappear as well. I make a little spare change from MSO and not ashamed at that at all. A lot of time and money is put into keeping it going. I have decided to only keep a core group of advertisers and then maintain a few affiliate ads going.

In case you are unaware affiliate ads – such as Emergency Essentials  – support MSO as anytime someone clicks and places an order we receive a small(very small) portion of the sale. This occurs at absolutely no additional cost to the purchaser.

FYI – I have some “insider information” from a market researcher that the price of oil will tick up slightly over the next several weeks and then drop to its lowest level prior to summer.

.22LR continues to be making a comeback – at least in my area. Local gun stores seem to maintain a supply including Academy. Prices are from pretty good to still ridiculous. My favorite round – the CCI Mini-Mag 40 grain solid point is running $10.99 a box. Some bulk pack’s with 325 rounds are starting around $19.99 and going up from there.

My inventory levels are getting up there so I just pick up a box or two now and then.

Firearm Lubrication: Generally I use Rem-Oil and Break-Free CLP. You have a favorite?

  1. Thank You for this Rourke!

    As a Christian, i am fed up with all this muslam
    Sabre Rattling crapola.

    My Sword Arm is Ready to defend.


  2. Still no sign of .22 in our state, or the nearest neighboring states. Everyone is telling me it is getting back to normal, but there has not been any on the shelves, that I have seen, in, well, since this nonsense started.

    As far as oil, I have always liked break-free, which I first discovered while reading ‘The Survivalist’. I also like ballistol a lot. Worked well for the German army, seems to do well for me. On guns, as well as knives.

  3. Rourke, informative video, it seems those who do not learn from history are bound to relive it and this map and what is happening now is scary.

  4. Slip 2000 wipes in my bags and range bags. Seems to work great. I haven’t found anything that I haven’t liked and have hoppes, otis, etc.

    People continue to kill each other to prove their god/faith is the only one, but this time it’s an obvious threat to our way of life and our freedom.

    The threat isn’t from those doing the deeds, but the threat comes from those wanting to ‘protect us’. The saddest part is that all of the people screaming for something to be done (bomb them, kill them all, send the troops in, close the borders, increase protection at malls, etc.) just don’t realize the only thing they are doing is losing more freedoms and liberties. They applaud when something is done, think it’s okay to have their bag/purse searched before going into a sports stadium, send their shoes through an X-Ray machine at an airport, etc.

    All in the name of ‘safety’ and ‘security’. Frustrating.
    I bet more people watched the Oscars the other night than will buy an extra canned good, bottle of water or get any meaningful exercise… in the next 60 days.

  5. wonderful video – as a history student of the truth, I’ve tried to explain this to many people and they just refuse to listen – gets really frustrating when people refuse to see the truth of what is going on before them.

  6. Rourke-thanks .My husband prefers Rem Oil.We usually stuff his Christmas stocking with such goods.
    Well now that Iran was discovered to have a hidden ,real Nuclear site I wonder if OBama will finally honor PM Ben N and support Israel. Has anyone heard of the Sons of Liberty? ( Christian men going to fight ISIS ) I will check their site out.
    On the weather front- more frozen pipes despite our best efforts -insulation, dripping faucets on ,heating tapes , etc. Just put the Big Buddy on again.
    Spring cometh eventually we hope. Arlene
