Well we have a new year ahead of us. With the current state of the economy in the U.S. I am personally going to kick things into over-drive. I am feeling a renewed sense of time running out. I have been putting my list together with the items that I really need to work on. I already have plenty of food so it is on to weapons and ammo along with first aid and communications.
Over the next couple of months I have plans to get my ammo stores up to where I think they need to be. I have a goal of 5000 rounds of each caliber that I have weapons for. I have some that are 7.62x39,9mm,.380,7.62x54r,.45acp and several assorted gauges in shot guns. I don't think I will need as many rounds for the shotguns so I plan on having 1000 rounds of each gauge. I already have quite a bit of ammo for all of the weapons but some of them I need to update their levels.
Communications is an area that I have quite a bit of experience in so my list there just keeps growing. I am in the process of setting up a pretty serious Ham Radio station. I have several different transceivers that operate on different meter lengths. I plan on having a stationary base station set up along with a mobile set up in a pelican case. I have been working lately on getting mobile antennas set up for the radios that I will have in the case. I have also bought six new handheld radios that operate at 400hz to 490hz for use out in the field on recon missions and that type of stuff. You can get these on Ebay for pretty inexpensive prices. My next purchase is to buy some extra batteries for the handhelds.
