Today's INW Prep Fest: Well Received! Next: June 16th

E-mail sent by BG1RS 22PLINKER, Saturday, May 18th, 2019 @ 10:30pm


Looking forward,
expect similar events on a monthly basis.  Anticipate these to be outdoors, the 3rd Sunday afternoons of the month, noon to 6 through October, at the neighboring Blanchard Grange. 
Today, dozens of vendors and hundreds of attendees
were smiling between the raindrops!  Eggs, livestock, plants, foods, tools, household, jewelry, radio equipment, ammo, guns, books and MORE were bought and sold.  Classes and workshops were held.
Several other local events competed for the public's attention, now that the "warm" weather is upon us, yet we had some pretty filled floorspaces, especially in the earlier rainy hours.
Representatives from AmRRON, Oath Keepers and our own wonderful Heather (and Andrew!) Scott were in attendance.  The little town of Blanchard held its (often leftist) breath, not knowing what to expect from so many conservative Constitutionalists converging upon it.  Unsurprisingly, pax terra reigned.
Many thanks to those who participated, attended, and, especially, helped in so many ways, including the cleanup afterwards.  All agreed that the site was in better shape and cleanliness than how we'd found it.  We have such a wonderful and supporting group of members!

Welcome, RON from SPIRIT LAKE!

QYT KT-8900D Dual Band Radio

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MYY5JWF/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Nice little radio. Comes with programming cable and works with CHRIP software daily after 04/29/2019 ( had a little bug in the TMR setting prior to this version)

2 power settings, 10W and 25W
So it should work well just plugged into a cigarette lighter adapter in a vehicle. it even comes with the plug.
there is an external speaker connector on the back.

Dual band, so 2M and 70cm
But not exactly fcc typed so will operate in FRS/GMRS MURS, etc. and therefore may not be available after the new rules go into affect in sept.

Quad Standby. It will monitor 4 channels at the same time! 4! four!
Operation from keypad on mic is pretty easy.

It does NOT do crossband repeat, but with 2 of these and a custom mic cable you can repeat using one as receive and the other as xmit.

It's small. I'll bet you could mount on a quad, but certainly on a side-by-side..

Yes , its cheap and you get what you pay for. but if you like your Baofeng but want a little more oompf, here it is.

I've been running one of these the last couple weeks in my truck with a NMO mag mount base

https://www.amazon.com/1230-MUHF-Motorola-Mini-UHF-Magnet-Antenna/dp/B07DRQF21G/

nice little base with extra long 17ft cable to reach all the way from the roof around back and to the dash in my crewcab.
uses a Mini UHF connector so any holes you have to drill are smaller, but don't forget the

Male PL-259 to Mini UHF Female adapter

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GN94FOE/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A2PXC5AB6J60IH&psc=1

( I know i know, I can hear you say "just solder on  male PL259 to your rg58 coax", but not everyone is an elmer)

I bought this simply because of the extra long cable. There are lots of NMO magnetic bases out there. Wilson makes great ones with bigger magnets.

and a dual band NMO antenna I picked a long time ago.

It a Browning BR-180, so yes, it works well. Browning is a good name.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003H3DTGE/ref=crt_ewc_img_dp_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Total investment under $140 plus a couple of hours running power wires and antenna cable through the truck.

Far-Left Socialists Arming, Training, Promoting Revolution.

E-mail sent by BG1RS 22PLINKER, Friday, April 26th, 2019 @ 3:11pm

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redneck_Revolt

Redneck Revolt is an American far-left group[1][2][3] that organizes predominantly among working-class people. The group supports gun rights and members often openly carry firearms. Its political positions are anti-capitalist, anti-racist and anti-fascist. Founded in Kansas in 2009, members were present at several protests against Donald Trump and against the far right in 2017.

Background

Redneck Revolt was founded in 2009,[1][4][5] in part in response to the perceived contradictions of the Tea Party movement,[1] as an offshoot of the John Brown Gun Club, a firearms training and community defense project that was itself founded in Lawrence, Kansas in 2004.[1][4][5][6] Founding member Dave Strano was previously part of the Kansas Mutual Aid Network, which was involved in organizing protests against the Republican National Convention in 2004, in relation to which he and others began to train with firearms and engage in Second Amendment advocacy.[6][7] In the early 2000s, John Brown Gun Club members operated anti-racist stalls at gun shows in Kansas.[8] The John Brown Gun Club sought to "demystify" firearms, and to distinguish their commitment to community self-defense from clandestine groups that advocated guerrilla warfare.[6] Its first major mobilization was a protest against the 2005 national conference of the Minuteman Project.[9]

Following a hiatus the group was re-formed as a national organization in summer 2016,[5][6] using both the Redneck Revolt and John Brown Gun Club names,[4] with the intention of responding to the growth of right-wing populism, particularly among rural, working-class white people.[6]

The group attributes their use of the word "redneck" to the time of the Coal Wars, a series of labor disputes in the United States occurring from around 1890 to around 1930, when the word became popular among coalminers.[10] The use of the term is also intended as a form of subversion or reappropriation.[7] The group's name also refers to the 1921 Battle of Blair Mountain,[11] and the red bandanas worn by members emulate those worn by striking coalminers during that conflict.[12] A member has said that the group tries "to acknowledge the ways we've made mistakes and bought into white supremacy and capitalism, but also give ourselves an environment in which it's OK to celebrate redneck culture".[1]

Their political influences include the 19th-century abolitionist John Brown,[13] the Young Patriots Organization[1][5][14][15] the Deacons for Defense and Justice,[7] and the Rainbow Coalition, an alliance formed in Chicago in the 1960s between the Black Panther Party, Young Lords and the Young Patriots.[16][17] The group sees itself as part of a tradition of white working-class "rebellion against tyranny and oppression".[13]

Views

Core principles of Redneck Revolt[18][19]

  • We stand for organized defense of our communities
  • We are working class and poor people
  • We are an aboveground militant formation
  • We stand against the nation-state and its forces which protect the bosses and the rich (police and military)
  • We stand against capitalism
  • We believe in the right of militant resistance
  • We believe in the need for revolution

Ammo Storage Tips Every Prepper Should Know

Ammo Storage Tips Every Prepper Should Know

Ammo Storage Tips Every Prepper Should Know

A lot of people think being a prepper is all about stocking up on supplies. True enough, you can’t be very prepared without building up stockpiles of essentials – but that’s only half the battle. Once you’ve got it you need to store it, and that’s a lot more complicated than just piling it in your basement and forgetting about it until the fertilizer hits the cooling unit.

Preppers think a lot about food storage, which makes sense; food is essential, but it’s also perishable, so you need to make sure it’s stored well enough that, when you need it, it isn’t going to poison you. Water storage gets a lot of attention too, for the same reasons. There are some things that tend to get overlooked, though, and one of them is almost as important as food and water – ammunition.

Ammo Storage Tips Every Prepper Should Know fun

Ammo comes in a sealed box, and even if you store a bunch of loose cartridges in a paper bag they’re not going to visibly change much over time. The brass might discolor a bit, but this is ammunition, right? It isn’t like food; it doesn’t go moldy if you leave it on the counter too long.

Maybe not, but ammo still needs to be properly stored if you’re going to rely on it. Badly stored rounds might look fine, but they could be deteriorating inside and you won’t know a thing about it until you pull the trigger. Then you could find yourself with stoppages, bullets that don’t leave the barrel with a consistent velocity or trajectory – even dangerous hang fires or breech explosions.

Your ammo stockpile is there to let you harvest game and protect yourself. If you can’t rely on it, surviving through the crisis is going to be a whole lot harder – and if there’s civil unrest in your area, maybe impossible. Follow these tips to make sure you have a supply of ammunition you can rely on.

  • Start with quality ammo. There are places you can economise and save some money. Ammunition isn’t one of them. Keep bargain bullets and old military surplus for plinking; get the best ammo you can afford for your stockpile. A bargain price could indicate ammo that’s been on the shelves for a long time or hasn’t been properly stored. It could even have failed quality control. That isn’t usually a big issue, but in a survival situation can you afford misfires? Buy ammo that’s less than ten years old, and avoid damaged or torn boxes.
  • Rotate your supply. You already have a rotation system for your food supplies, and you should have one for your ammo too. When you buy ammunition pack it securely, label it with the date of purchase – and the date of manufacture, if you know it – and put it at the back of your ammo shelf. Take the oldest ammo from the front of the shelf and use that when you go to the range to practice. That way, when a crisis hits you can face it with your newest and most reliable ammunition in your weapons.
  • Pack it protectively. Ammo – except some of that old military surplus you shouldn’t be adding to your stockpile – generally comes in a cardboard box. This is fine for most purposes, but it’s far from ideal for long-term storage. Cardboard doesn’t give a lot of protection from damp, which along with heat is one of the main enemies of stored ammunition.
  • Can it. Military ammo cans with a rubber seal in the lid with give a lot more protection than a cardboard box. They’re moisture-resistant, rugged and easy to carry. If you’re storing boxed ammunition this is an ideal way to do it.
  • Vacuum pack it. The worst enemy of stored ammunition is moisture, and the main source of that is the air that surrounds it. The less air in the packaging, the less moisture can get at your ammo. If you can’t get military ammo cans you can protect ammunition by storing it in plastic bags and removing most of the air before sealing the bag. A vacuum cleaner is a good way to do this – it will remove most, but not all, the air. You might be tempted to go the whole hog and use a proper vacuum sealer to get all the air out, but this isn’t as good an idea as it seems. Cartridges are almost, but not completely, airtight. If you store them in a strong vacuum the air inside them will slowly bleed out until the pressure equalizes. When you open the packaging, new air will seep back in – carrying moisture with it. The chances of your survival refuge being drier than the factory where the ammunition was made are pretty low, so don’t tempt fate like this.
  • Ammo Storage Tips Every Prepper Should Know fun dessicantsUse desiccants. Whatever kind of packaging you use for your ammo, throw some desiccant sachets in there to soak up any residual moisture that does make its way in. Bentonite clays work well – that’s what’s used in the popular Desi-Paks. Silica gel is also effective.
  • Keep it cool. Ammunition is designed to be as heat-resistant as possible – apart from the fact that guns get hot, it’s also designed to stay effective in a soldier’s ammunition pouches in desert conditions. Even if your ammo is civilian it still uses the same basic technologies as military ammo. However, it’s not foolproof. Hot storage won’t case short-term damage until you hit temperatures of well over 100°F (although a badly insulated store that gets direct sunlight can achieve that) but even moderate heat will degrade the performance of your ammo over months and years. Store it somewhere as cool as possible, while maintaining the focus on avoiding moisture.
  • Check regularly. Don’t just trust your store to protect your ammo. Check it! If you find water leaking in, or temperatures rising for some reason, that will give you a chance to fix the problem before any real damage is done. If packaging is starting to show signs of damp or corrosion, you’ll know that the ammo inside can’t be relied on anymore and needs to be replaced.

In a survival situation it’s vital you know that, when you pull the trigger, the round in the chamber is going to fire reliably and send its bullet flying true to the target. The only way to guarantee that is to look after your ammunition properly. Follow these tips and your guns will be reliable, life-saving tools after the SHTF. Get it wrong and they’ll just be badly balanced clubs.
