Time to top things off?
 
I never really panic buy as staying prepared is just a way of life but for the first time I'm considering going a bit deeper on some supplies. Anyone else unusually nervous these day?

I have been nervous for quite some time. But, I believe the 2020 election could be the tipping point for our Republic.

If you guys are talking about ammo now it is a great time to buy.

A strong dollar means copper, lead & tin cost less. That equals lower cost ammo.

I've noted a pattern. When the dollar drops in value as it did after the 2008 bank bail outs about 3 months later ammo prices started rising. I've noted the same pattern each time the dollar has taken a dip since then.

Line all that up against a strong US economy and you get great ammo prices.

Why are you nervous?

My current goal is getting my estate in shape since that is the one SHTF situation that's truly a reality for us all.

If you remain flexible you can probably deal with anything else that comes down the road.

Been there and done that.
 
It is a constantly evolving process. Currently looking at putting a couple more drums of fuel back in the pole building. Trying to get a couple more cords of wood put up, Ordered a case of .38 Super ammo yesterday as SG ammo had a good price on Fiochi. And I need to get a few more chains for the Stihl, as well as bar oil. There is always something that needs attention.
