So now we’re going to be labeled terrorists. For those of us who want to have food and water to in preparation for a natural or man made disaster and have the means to defend ourselves we will run the risk of being called terrorists. This is a sad and strange time that we are living in. In essence we are going to be considered dangerous because we want to protect ourselves and family. Shame on you who think this is worth our governments time.

The potential for nuclear radiation poisoning from the nuclear power plants failing are Japan is very high. My friend who lives on the West Coast was expressing his concern yesterday and I e-mailed him some links to products on Amazon.com. Last night the products were available. Tonight the products are back ordered and not available for several months.
Last year I had the foresight to buy several packs of iodide pills just in case something happened on the East Coast. I have a lot to be concerned about because there is a high concentration of nuclear power plants here. I hate to think that my life would be dependent on the governments foresight to protect me and my family. They can’t even get pot holes filled around where I live so I don’t give them too much credit.
I bought the Iosat Iodide tablets below. If anyone is concerned about radioactive poisoning now is the time to get some of these pills before the world supply is depleted for the next several months.
I’m going to take a quick break from posting about the range and get on my soap box and preach a bit. Today’s bit of wisdom is having the basic necessities at home and on your person. Those of us who are mindful and prepare for a time when there might be trouble take this very seriously. I’m sure everyone has friends who do not have any supplies whatsoever. The people who do not think about having their shit together live their lives day to day never thinking about tomorrow like the fable The Grasshopper and the Ant. If you have ever spoken to your friends and family about getting ready for hard times and they laughed at you and then said that if things go wrong they will show up at your place then you know how upsetting it is. That kind of talk is proof that they do not care and they will be looking for handouts in case something happens.
It doesn’t take much to have some backup food and water. I pick up a few extras of my favorites and put it off to the side. I think the most important thing is to get water and food that you are familiar with. One of the best investments that I have ever made and had a chance to use in the NYC blackout was the Sterno Stove. I bought the folding stove and some Sterno for a camping trip I never went to years ago. The great thing about this setup is that it’s portable and it doesn’t take up a lot of room.
This little stove let me boil water and heat up my food so I didn’t have to eat it cold. The blackout was only for a day so I wasn’t exactly suffering but it was good to have. I’ll get back to posts about firearms shortly.
