I ended up in town, and stopped by the grocery store. The new magazine that replaced "Surplus Guns" was
out on the magazine racks. It's at least as good as the old magazine, and possibly better. There were articles on reloading for the older guns, coverage of some surplus rifles that aren't very well known anymore, and an article on surplus military equipment.
I also found the second issue of "Off Grid" magazine. Although it's almost ten dollars, it's actually a pretty good read. Do you remember the song Tavia sang in "Fiddler on the Roof."
Lord who created the Lion and the Lamb,
You decreed I should be what I am.
But would it spoil some vast , eternal plan,
if I were a wealthy man?
When you read "Off Grid" you feel that way. The equipment they review is superb, and would be wonderful to have. The articles on vehicles, weapons and ancillary equipment are interesting. It's just that a normal family in these times can't afford any of it. They had a really good article on building a bug out vehicle in this issue, something I would absolutely love to have, but it wasn't something anyone I know (except maybe my middle brother) could actually afford. I don't mind though, I am getting a lot of entertainment out of reading the magazine even if I can't buy the things in it.
Well, time to go put the beef broth on to boil. When winter is here I mix it with the dog food to make it more nutritious. If I have any bacon fat or anything of that nature, I mix that in too. Dogs do not live by dog food alone.
