    You have got to be kidding me. I just bought that from Costco on 4/3 for $151.

    Sigh, it is awesome and works great. It can charge my phone and my VX-8DR direct from the 12V.

    Made a few WAPIs. I want to know several ways to effectively sterilize water. Took an advanced handgun training course. Learned how to shoot a handgun while running, and how to evade attacks, draw and fire, (Tueller drill). and lastly, how to propagate plants by cuttings. A good week!

    Wow, great week! You might check out solar pasturization for your water, 6 minutes at 160 degrees will do it... don't forget to strain it through a shamwow!

    Ordered a couple of knives and found a new sheath maker; not yet sure how well I'll like his work.

    Helped a family member more on their emergency shelter room addition. That was good for them and for me both; different kinds of manual labor than I do on most days.

    Helped some others prepare 'super long term', my wife & I hosting nine eighth-grade girls and their college-age group leader in our house for a "Discipleship Now" https://www.dnowonline.com/whats-a-dnow weekend. (Wish there was a "shudder" smilie; teenage girls are crazy, and nine of them at once qualifies as an asylum. The cat wouldn't even come back in the house until the girls left.) Crazy as they are, I wouldn't have missed it for anything and am already looking forward to next year.

    Got down to where we have less than two years left to pay on the company we bought three years ago. Be seriously glad March of 2014 when that's behind us. :freak:

    My wife and I joined weight watchers! We are not fat but we each have plenty to give to get to our desired weight and have been unable to do it alone so we took the plunge last night and went to a meeting.

    I hope that this does the trick since I have only lost 15 pounds since New Years.

    Wouldn't bring it up again if it wasn't dropped to a previous page now; but $298.50 per thousand over the counter, at least in my area. Federal American Eagle 55-grain FMJBT, at walmart. Have to pay sales tax, but not shipping.

    They may not have a thousand on hand, but if someone buys the few hundred they do have, they'll order more to restock. If someone buys that, they'll order more to restock; etc.

    American-made product, better price than available even online, and encouraging a retailer to stock it locally. Seems like a win/win all around imo.

    I'll quit beating this particular dead horse now; just wanted to get it on this page. :cool:

    I ordered more rifle and shotgun ammo, and bought more freeze-dried food. Also ordered a solar battery charger.
