If I Could Attend - I Would Attend This Church Next Week

In one week, on March 23, 2014, Grace Baptist Church at 612 4th Avenue in Troy, New York will be giving away a NY SAFE Act compliant AR-15.

It will be given to one lucky person who attends their 10AM service. It's not a raffle and not a fund raiser - it is a giveaway. You have to be there to win and have to meet certain eligibility requirements found on the page at this link:

I cannot make it there but if I would have been able to make it, it 's possible there just might have been a chance that they could have brought me back to organized religion with thinking like theirs. Go to the site at that link and read up on it. They certainly seem to be true patriots as far as I can tell.

All the best,

Bought Some 50 Caliber Ammo Cans Recently...

...and filled all but one of them today with ammo that I have had laying around in shipping boxes, in other containers or loose. That helped straighten out the man-cave just a bit and also gives my son some kindling in the form of cardboard boxes for his smoker and his fire pit. I have to look around, I seem to be missing some ammo I thought was laying around. There is a chance I already put it in a can or in my ammo locker but if it is still out and about, I would rather have it stored properly in a can or the ammo locker. It's not a safety issue, at least not in my place, it's just that it will keep longer if stored better.

I was pretty surprised that it took 7 of the 8 cans I just bought, to put away my ammo this evening. I sure did  not realize I had that much ammo that was not already in cans or in the locker. Planned on using maybe 4 cans and selling or trading the others but that isn't about to happen now. Decent ammo cans, and brand new too - not surplus. I got them from Gander Mountain for a decent price too at $119.40 shipped, with tax included. That was the sale price of $14.99 apiece and also included a $10 off &  free shipping coupon code. Lately, up this way, new ammo cans have been going for $20 plus tax ($21.73 each with tax) and that is the least expensive price I could find on them at a local store. The cheapest surplus ones have been at gun shows for at least $15 apiece.

As for the ones I got, I do not know the manufacturer but they are supposed to be DOD spec. Gander Mountain advertised them as Crow Shooting Supply M2A1 .50 Caliber Ammo Can Item #732803 (now going for $19.99 each). I
tend to think that Crow Shooting Supply does not manufacture them. As I said though, they seem pretty nice.

All the best,
