Looking for a flashlight mount for your firearm that has a picatinny rail? I own a few of these and they work great. Right now only $1.75 total. Great deal.

As my membership in a Progressive FB Group continues I struggle not to respond to posts. Rarely am I seeing anyone step up and discuss American’s coming together and reducing the division. I am sure I would see similar things in strict Conservative groups. What I know is they most of the time are on the wrong side of the issues.

Inventorying of supplies is going slow. Guess that is a good thing as it means there is a lot to go through. Currently deciding how much of what will be taken to the retreat. I am thinking at least 80% will go to retreat as any significant event that is where we will be. Less than 5% will be involved in Operational Cache’s.

Although I am not in any need for another “combat” pistol I have been eyeing the Sig P320 – and the M&P9 2.0. Last week I stopped at my local shop and compared the two. The S&W M&P9 2.0 is my favorite hands down. May look at picking one up in a few months. Excellent thing about the 2.0 is it is very similar to my 1st generation M&P and take the same magazine.

There are many reasons why so many love their Kindle and Amazon Fire tablets. One huge advantage is you could literally go years without every buying a book to read as there are tons of free eBooks available. Don’t have a Kindle or Fire? No problem. There are apps that can be installed on most any cell phone or computer for free. No excuses!
