    I was going to do a post last night about my 'Get Home' Bag that I bring with me every day, but not sure how it would be received. Then South Minneapolis exploded last night, and I'll probably do the post later today....

    I have a very busy head. I have inside voices that I have learned to contain.

    Makes perfect sense to me, sir. I've had bag of...(answers?)...in every car I've owned since I got my license.

    That bag looks...premium.

    Only now getting up to speed on what was going on. We live about 18 blocks south of where the riots were going on. We could hear the pops and booms of I presume gunfire and shit blowing up, and it was freaking the dogs out.

    Gunshots as well as fireworks. Reports say that fireworks were used to start the fire at the AutoZone.

    Fortunately we were well away from it, but I have a buddy (Ski) who lives a block south of Lake/Chicago, which looks to have been the epicenter. He was able to watch from his front porch as the liquor store was broken into and throngs of looters cleared the place out. Fortunately, the crowd stayed away from his house, but I woulda been freaking out if I was that close to the mayhem.

    Ha. Never did own a pair. I’ve considered a collapsible baton.

    Saw it many moons ago. I recall enjoying it. It was always nice seeing Bart the Bear in a good film.

    Just like my tent, I picked up my Overkill shotgun today:



    It's basically the AK-47 of shotguns. Beat the fuck out of it, forget to clean it for years, and she'll keep throwing lead, (except for the mini shells). FSFB says he's breaking the 15th commandment, "Though shall not covet your best friend's shotgun".

    Not cheap, but I've been hemming and hawing over it for damn near twenty years. The extra protective coating on the H20 is beyond overkill, but, hey, it's me.

    I have no desire to use it for its intended purpose, but I certainly will train with it. Already ordered a replacement titanium magazine tube for it, (American version is restricted to five rounds, so it'll hold 7. Also ordered an oversized charging handle / bolt handle and speed bar for it. The speed bar installs over the small bolt release, one of the few complaints that people have about this tank.

    I've also installed my EoTech holographic sight on it. I had originally had that on my KSG, which I sold today. Not sure if I'll keep it on there since my iron sights don't co witness with it. We'll see.

    After cutting up several sizable logs, I test drove my new Fiskars 8 pound splitting maul. Oh my, it does the job. I may be sore, but it split far better then the four pound maul I picked up over a decade ago. They also make a lighter splitting axe if the maul is too.... daunting.
