In Nov 2017 I ordered a CBC Industries “Tactical CY6 / 6.5 Grendel and had it delivered to my local gun shop. This is an 18″ barreled rifle. The receipt and paperwork don’t tell me the barrel’s twist rate.
I chose this cartridge / caliber for two reasons. First was to test it as a pig cartridge for night hunting and second was a couple of us were trying to determine the “best” AR platform caliber for Missouri. In Missouri we have plains up north, pine forest in the south east and foothills in the south west. Hunting Mule Deer up north requires a bit more than a 5.56 and the wild hogs sometimes don’t respect that either. We had floated several calibers and the debate, after studying ballistics, factoring in recoil and then barrel length came down to pretty much the 6.8 SPC II and the 6.5 Grendel.

I could go through life without thinking. No, not really, my mind runs 100 MPH. I have the curse of always thinking but rarely about one topic for very long.
Is the country about to go socialist? Collapsing economy? Will things “work out” and my time spent preparing for trouble be wasted time I should have spent learning new skills for my business? Continue reading Torn between two worlds or at least two futures
It’s hurricane season, and other natural disasters are still occurring. If you want to be better prepared and be an asset to your local community, there is training you can take.
Let me introduce you to the Military Emergency Management Specialist (MEMS) program which is open to civilians as well as the military. Continue reading Military Emergency Management Specialist training, it’s for you.
If you own a firearm that has detachable magazines, you should own many magazines. They are replaceable parts and by nature wear out. Keeping only two on hand is not a smart idea, an my readers are smarter than the average bear. This has nothing to do with being a prepper or fear, it has to do with intelligence.
Wise people buy while prices are low, right now, prices have come back down to where they were pre COVID during the Trump years when prices of all things firearms related were at their lowest since President Bush Jr. was in office.
How many you purchase is up to you. My rules are fairly simple. If you read my previous article “Start your Physical Security on a Budget” you have a rough idea. Continue reading Firearms Magazines – You need a lot of them
Voter fraud is rampant, and in the 2020 election is was blatant. Anyone denying it occurred is a liar, plain and simple. The video, audio evidence is undeniable. Unfortunately Social Media giants have pulled the videos showing ballots being thrown away and ballots being pulled out of hiding in carts and then run through the machines by election officials. Continue reading Voter Integrity Act of 2021
In Part 1 we talked about making sure you have some food in case there is another run and having some cash set aside in case power is out or debit / credit cards are not used.
Once you have your expenses (emergency fund money) for 3 months and food for 3 months, you can now go out and buy a firearm (if you don’t own one). If you do already own one, even if it was your grandfathers 38 revolver or uncles 870 shotgun, don’t go out buying 4, 5, 6 or 8 other guns.

First things first, things are about to get real bad in the United States. Somehow an idiot socialist was elected to control the country. We had a trial of Socialism March through July 2020 and even the socialist didn’t like it. How soon idiots forget. Much of what I write about below takes time and Americans may not have it. Please don’t panic buy. http://the22man.com/2020/03/quit-panic-buying/
To all those that bought N95 masks and raised the price from $1 each to $10 each, those that bought all the TP. You are part of the problem with America and the World. Continue reading COVID Hysteria Part 1
My father died of COVID (Cancer made his immune system week, COVID destroyed and and he died of pneumonia as a result).
His funeral is tomorrow January 8th, 2pm CST. His funeral can be seen live here: https://lovingtheworld.online.church/
There is an old Arab Bedouin saying: I, against my brothers. I and my brothers against my cousins. I my brothers and my cousins against the world.
Out of the same land our Creator brought another people who were to be separate from the world but to positively affect the world.
Out of those people came our Christ, one who did not neglect His immediate family and yet literally offered to help everyone on the planet born or ever to be born.
About 1,950 years later, my father met that man.
As a result, many of you are here. Not because of one great moment in meeting Tex, but because of a hundred or a thousand small moments with him.

I thought I had posted this years ago. Apparently not. It is all the more true in 2020 since the Cheaper than Dirt has had unreasonable practices multiple times since then and finally has the Texas Attorney General looking into them. https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/breaking-texas-ag-accuses-cheaper-than-dirt-of-price-gouging/
As a micro-business I am all for making a profit, however there are times when a business takes advantage of customers and that is not right. During the attacks of 9/11, in our area, several gas stations jacked the price of gas up. The Missouri Attorney General took action and the prices were reduced and those particular stations were forced to sell fuel cheaper than anyone else for a time. Continue reading Cheaper than Dirt? NOT!
