Preparedness Notes for Tuesday — December 29, 2020

130 years ago today, the tragic Wounded Knee massacre took place.

This is also the birthday of inventor Charles Goodyear (1800–1860.)

And today is the birthday of actor Jude Law (born 1972.) You will probably remember him from Enemy at The Gates and Sky Captain.

I recently reactivated the order-taking system at Elk Creek Company  — my sideline antique gun business. Please note that I’ve set special sale prices on nearly all of the full-length rifles in our inventory. With the Biden Administration soon to take over the White House, is strongly recommend that you buy a couple of Federally exempt pre-1899 cartridge guns, as a strategic hedge. Why? Because you may soon have to make a lot of the other guns in your collection “disappear”.

A reminder: We are running short of entries for the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest. Round 92 ends on January 31, so get busy writing and e-mail us your entry. Remember that there is a 1,500-word minimum, and that articles on practical “how-to” skills for survival have an advantage in the judging.

Today I’m posting an essay that I wrote, for you to ponder.
