From the Desk of John Rourke – August 8th, 2017


Hunting season is fast approaching. Typically a buddy of mine is a member of a hunt club and my son and I tag along around Thanksgiving. This year he did not join. I’m not real keen on tracking over public land with every Jim Bob and Uncle Cleatus kneeling behind tree’s chugging down some Jack. If I don’t find another person to take me on private land I’ll likely go to Georgia to my brother’s place. Out of state costs would be $130 plus $8.00 each additional day. Would make for a fun trip. He has 40+ acres.

The prepper definition of the word “tangibles” –

A physical item which when owned provides security and advantages to the owner in the event of some type of disaster.

Typically tangibles are things like food, water filters, firearms, ammunition, tools, fuel, firewood, etc. Many believe in investing in tangibles rather than non-tangibles such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.

A friend at work took his CWP class over the weekend. He recently bought him and his wife their first gun – a .38 Special revolver. Excellent choice. The .38 Special revolver is rarely discussed as a self-defense tool but excels in that arena. Most self-defense situations are at very close range and last a matter of seconds.

For the more experienced shooter the simple and near perfect reliability the revolver makes so much sense.
