Wow, Doug- that's not even a bad price! Even with the extra $200 for the tax stamp! grin

"Having two vehicles that are paid off"
I feel like this is a significantly underrepresented subthread of being prepared! Financial preparedness buys me a lot more restful nights than the pallet of ammo would.

Well said, sir.

I walk down aisles empty of paper products and bottled water, and turn into aisles fully stocked with beer, wine, and ice cream.

People have the strangest priorities.

And if I have no tp, I am ikely sitting next to bathtub: grab a shower. Way more effective than washing my hands, and it's not like I have lots else to do.

Iíve started doing basic pistol familiarization via FaceTime for friends. While Iím certainly not loving that so many people I know are only now buying firearms, I am optimistic that I can train those who are coming to me on the three cardinal rules and prevent them from having an ND.

and if you didn't get nursemike's veiled suggestion a hand held shower wand on the stream setting makes a pretty good bidet...

Over time, I have used various expedients for TP. One of the best (and most exhilarating) is a nice big snowball. Frozen bidet??
