    Any New Preparations?

    I was just curious as to any new preparations people here would now make that they hadn't before the virus hit. We all know that there had been a run on buying up guns, ammo, toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizer, masks and food. Luckily I have the space and ability to keep stocked up on most of these items all the time so I wasn't left wanting for any of these items. One thing I will buy more of is canned vegetables. I did have to go to the store for fresh vegetables and milk. I have since bought extra milk and froze it. I also bought a few large containers of powdered coffee creamer. The only real supply problem I had was to get building supplies for an addition I was building, but that was nothing that couldn't wait.

    If I was getting ready again, I would do nothing different. I had all my bases covered, and our home-improvement places never closed down.

    Some states may close back down, however, I don't expect mine to. At this time, I expect the people of the State of Texas are just going to have to learn to live with this virus, until another one comes along, and hopefully, we will not be panicked by the next one.

    I wasn't super prepared but didn't feel lost either. The only thing that kind of caught me off guard was the TP thing! I normally buy a fairly large supply of TP anyway but I was at the end of a cycle when the issue started. Now when I'm in the store I see they have TP in stock I buy some regardless of how much I have.

    Many items in the store have limits on them. I did start buying the limit, usually 2 of an item, of veggies most trips to the store. Lastly I hope to get this AR10 going good so I can keep the zombie hoards further away than with the .223!

    I stay prepared, I always have several weeks of supplies on hand. I buy TP in ten roll packs, one for each bathroom. March 10 we stocked all 3, by chance. As far as ammo goes-well, I'll run out of TP first.

    I've changed all the filters and fluids in my M113 armored personnel carrier and cleaned and sanitized our bunker/shelter.

    It is possible to love my country and my guns but despise Donald Trump.

    Only thing I'd do would be to lay in a supply of powdered milk. We've got all the rest covered.

    I usually buy when they have a good sale and with a chest freezer we have not gone hungry. I am stocked up again with canned goods, TP and paper towels. I grow my own tomatoes and have over 30 on the plants right now. We didn't really have a problem getting milk as I used online ordering with curbside pickup to avoid going into the store. The only thing that I might worry about is if the riots get worse and it disrupts supply lines.

    "This is not a world in which one can turn the other cheek. Doing so does not avoid violence, but rather encourages it. The bad guys threaten, but they do not seem to want to get hurt. They should be taught that their presumed victim is more dangerous than they are. This is not a matter of weapons, but of will."

    I looked at buying powdered milk and couldn't believe how high the price was per quart at my local store. I ended up buying regular milk, drinking about 6 ounces out of it and freezing it. It needs to have some removed so it has room to expand.

    That's certainly something to consider and will probably get worse as we get closer to the election.

    With the trucking industry balking at delivering to cities which have de-funded, reduced or handcuffed their police force it could get really interesting.

    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell
