I’ll just leave this here

I figure we’re about 3 more cases of Ebola from a spike in ammo prices. Buy now. I did.

    I bought last week 🙂

    I try to buy my calibers every time I see a good price…especially 7.62×51 for my M1A.

    Would love to. the ACA halted my ammo purchases when my family’s insurance surpassed my mortgage.

    I’m buying ammo of the nutritional variety. Got plenty of the metallic variety, at least for now.

    But, bulk bags of rice, pinto beans, whole cases of canned veggies, some canned meats. Other long shelf-life consumables. Water purification gear.

    I’ve got a dual-fuel Coleman stove, and I’m slowing acquiring LED lanterns to run, keeping the Coleman Lanterns in reserve.

    Know what a lot of folks don’t lay-in for supplies? SPICES! I’m buying mine in commercial bulk. A 1 lb. jar of Cayenne makes a lot more sense than a 1 oz. jar. And is only marginally costilier.

    Buy shelf-stable Lard, too. And oils.

    As it is now, I can seal the house and survive for over 30 days. I’m working my way up to a 90 day stock.

    I can dig slit-trenches out back for sanitation, if need be.

    The only problem that I can foresee, is dealing with desperate neighbors, should it come to that. I can’t supply ’em all, and won’t.

    I still can’t find any .22LR to save my life.

    Perpetual crisis!

    Can you cook Ebola out of your food? I mean if your meat source is infected, can you cook long pig enough to kill the virus, yet still gain nutrition from the meat?

  7. Fiftycal Says:

    I bet the guy eating “long pig” is eating it already, just not cooked. As to PANIC, if anymore people turn up with obola, then it’s going to be pretty much game over.

  8. JKB Says:

    HL,

    There is no evidence of the virus infecting pets. No specific data on pig. Monkeys and, especially, bats are the hosts where it takes up residence for the long term. I believe it is the handling of the raw monkey and bat meat that causes it to get into a human outbreak.

    Viruses should be killed by the heat of cooking.

    Be right back, gotta run to Wal-Mart and buy some .22 ammo.

    screw ammo. buy beer and frozen pizzas. how many cases do you think it will take before the dude driving the grocery store truck thinks to himself, “crap, i’m not going to risk my life this week for $30k a year. i’m calling in sick this month.”

    how many more cases before you start to think twice before making a taco bell run?

    I have a faster learning curve Uncle.

    Bought mine years ago. Now I just buy what I need to practice with and it take the place of ‘old’ ammo I use in practice.

  12. Critter Says:

    plenty of ammo and plenty of reloading components. need to make another Sam’s run for canned goods and bottled water.

  13. Bruce MacMahon Says:

    I’ve got two dozen p-mags on the way.

  14. Jeff from DC Says:

    Im making the wisest purchase of all…investing in walking dead scratch off tickets. You can scratch off a bullet.

  15. Beaumont Says:

    Water purifier and solar oven – this upcoming week’s purchases.

  16. Fin Says:

    I’m buying nothing. Why? Because some other jackass here told us a week ago that we have nothing to fear because Ebola isn’t contagious. Where is the asshat now?

  17. Geodkyt Says:

    Fin — it’s not really ebola that I fear. There are a LOT of technical and societal reasons why an Ebola outbreak would fizzle fairly quickly here.

    I’m actually more concerned with a societal breakdown from panic and a lack of trust in our authorities — if the general population FEELS at risk and that DC is making things worse, it all falls apart very quickly. And MORE people will die from that than from Ebola in North America.

    An Ebola outbreak in Central America or Mexico would actually be *worse* for us here, because it will cause a stampede of people fleeing the disease (which WILL spread much better down there, for technical and societal reasons), and bringing SECONDARY diseases for which the US population is unprepared for. Along with the aforementioned breakdown in societal trust.
