Random Thoughts #13 : Surplus stuff.

Hey there, folks. 12-Gauge Chimp here with a new edition of Random Thoughts.

As most of you remember I mentioned visiting a military surplus shop during one of my trips. Well, I bought a good bit of stuff. I bought another .50 caliber ammo can, a couple of MREs and a Chinese Army issue SKS chest rig. I figured I could use that when I hit the range with my SKS. Well, that and I'm getting tired of lugging around an old messenger bag with ammo in it. The MREs are for my emergency food stash as I was running kind of low, granted I'm still a few MREs short of where I'd like to be, but I'll eventually get to a level where I'm comfortable. The ammo can is being used for its intended purpose, holding my ammo. I know some folks use them as tool boxes and for car survival kits, which I'll make one for myself soon. I also need to rebuild my bug out bag and make 12-Gauge Chimp's Personal Survival Kit version 2.0.

I will, hopefully, be getting out to the range for some well deserved target practice and to finally test my Mossberg Plinkster. Seriously, I've had the rifle since June of this year and I have yet to shoot the thing. That's the thing when I make plans to do a gun review, I say I'm going to go to the range, but something comes up and I don't get to go. Such is life for 12-Gauge Chimp.

Well, that's going to do it for this edition of Random Thoughts. As always, this is 12-Gauge Chimp signing off.
