Default getting a little thin skinned

guys i guess i am a little thin skinned, had a long night , my daughter in law is in the hospital about to deliver another boot for the corps! spent 5 hrs in the waiting room and was in a real bad mood when that person got on my case. I know my spelling is the S***s but to be truthful typing is painful to me, i use my thumbs and a pencil rigged with wire that fits my thumb and for finger, crude but it works, ill be on the forum as much as i can,
SEMPER FI

I'm glad you stuck around, you seem like good people.

BTW, did the new baby arrive yet?

Default What about ammo?

IMHO

Diversity is a dirty word, especially in our government, but also in our gunrack.

I am guilty also. I have rifles in nearly a dozen calibers.
When the recent malady overtook our country, I decided I should stock up on some ammo. Not a stockpile, mind you, but enough to keep my firearms operational if used judiciously.

I realized that if I had several rifles of fewer different calibers instead of many different calibers, I would be in better shape.

First of all, if one firearm breaks, I have a bunch of ammo for it and nothing to shoot that ammo in. Also, I could have twice as much ammo that would work in several firearms. I wish I had done it differently now.

I also would have opted for a couple .308/7.62 NATO rifles (I have nothing in that caliber) as ammo should be available (from one source or another) for a while (I would hope). I don't have any AR types in .223 or AK type rifles. I figure if the time comes I really need one, there'll be plenty laying on the ground.

As far as caliber, I have .243s for the grandkids, 30-06s for the kids (and they all know how to use and maintain them) and several .22s and shotguns as needed. I prefer my .260 Rem. in short action and .280 in long. Rounded off with a .300WSM for any heavy lifting.

I have reloading setups and components to add a little more diversity and also a couple buckshot molds (#4 & OO) for shotshells.

I pray that I will never have to head for the hills, but am ready if necessary.
If I am left alone and only need to shoot for food, I and my progeny should be good for a few generations. Then it's making BP for the flintlocks and arrows. (did I mention several compound and long bows and a stock of arrows?)
BTW, metalworking/blacksmithing skills will be invaluable.

God Bless America

It's not asking much for someone to post something semi-literate, at most intelligible. Spell check exists for a reason, but if someone chooses to show his ignorance of his native language in such a blatant way then expect to be called on it. Spelling and grammar always count, or at least an attempt at it. Most of you guys probably bitch about how this country has been dumbed-down when you are guilty of aiding and abetting. To the Op congratulations on the birth.

The man said he was not all that great a speller. And really. Who the hell cares? He got his point across. THe guy was just askling advice about what he has at home/. Not for an language arts lesson.
