From the Desk of John Rourke – April 5th, 2017


Hope everyone is having a great week. The weather was fantastic Tuesday here in South Carolina with temps near 80. Rain tomorrow but rest of week and weekend looking good. Definitely going to get some gardening done Saturday and Sunday. A co-worker gave me a bunch of scrap wood a couple years ago and planning to make some raised beds out of it.

I’ve seen some excellent deals going around on the S&W M&P Sheild in 45ACP including a rebate. Would love to pick one up but not in the budget right now.  Palmetto State Armory has them with a final price of $274.99 after rebate.

Yesterday there was some discussion regarding EMP. I have a document that I will make available that is excellent and heavily researched. I requested approval to pass it on to all of you from one of those involved in its development. The website/project where it was originally sold is no longer around, unfortunately.

I had no idea there is actually a movement with a huge following of people that believe the earth is actually……flat. Yes – do a few internet searches.

Before purchasing a free Kindle book on Amazon make certain the book is still free by making sure the price is $0.00. If it lists a price or says “read for free” or has a price for prime members the book is not free anymore.
