From the Desk of John Rourke – January 5th, 2018


It can be difficult at these times of low unemployment and record-breaking stock markets to be concerned about preparedness. The focus on economic collapse seems to have fizzled out with many preppers. I’ve seen it first hand. While the stock market cranks out incredible gains – the world is becoming ever more dangerous. Are there reasons to cut back and lower your guard?

Quite the opposite.

Ruger has come out with a new 9mm carbine  – The Ruger PC Carbine –  that is reminiscent of some of their past offerings. I’m sure it will be a great selling and being able to be taken down and stored away is a great selling point.

Running around $525 street price it is fairly affordable.

I like the 10mm cartridge. I’ve written numerous times about my desire to have a Glock 20 – someday. It may be more of a novelty than anything but I’ll have one eventually.

I’ve seen several new firearms coming out for the cartridge. Hi-Point has a carbine – and a few 1911’s have been released.

The frigid temperatures and massive snowfall along the east coast and elsewhere is unbelievable. It is dropping to 16 here in South Carolina. That is loooooowwwwww!
