What with this being the end of the Republican rule of the government, and with an obviously anti-gun, anti-liberty, and anti-responsibility Democrat taking the helm - with no sign that 2008 will provide any relief - and rumours that they're intending to push down hard with gun control and various other legislation, have you made any preparations for the innevitable? Personally, I took this 'opportunity' (with the assistance of a little extra cash) to stock up on a couple things I've been meaning to get for a while. Last night I ordered: - 10 more ar15 magazines from 44mag.com - book: Trapper's Bible: Traps, Snares & Pathguards (so I can learn more about the trade and be better at the art of trapping if needbe for food and skin) - book: The SAS Guide to Tracking (SAS) (same reason as above, but so i can track shot game better) - book: Edible Wild Plants: A North American Field Guide (hey, things could get really bad, and i'd be reduced to eating plants!) - book: - Speer Reloading Manual #13 I'll be getting a couple more items as soon as I can sneak it past the wife - hopefully before Christmas: - Lee Classic Turret press kit - .223, .270 win, and the other assorted useful dies - 1k .223 bullets - AR replacement parts and springs kit - maybe some military manuals from midway... Hopfully it all arrives before there's a terrorist attack as a result of the Democrats in power, and I get it all. (I'm only half-joking.) So, have any of you made some preparations? I've been toying with the idea of getting an extra evil black rifle receiver or something of that sort, but that's unfortunately beyond my level of current skill or equipment to deal with, and the cost outweighs any benefit it may have for me directly.
