We just waited 3h in line at Cabela's to buy a shot gun.  Thank you to @misteravenfor the recommendation.  We were going to buy another handgun but he suggested getting a shotgun instead.  Geez it was nuts in there.  The store was basically empty except for the gun counter.

What kind of shotgun did you get?

Mossberg 930.  We were lucky we got it too, they were all sold out and the employee happened to find one in the back for us that wasn't on the computer inventory.

Nice. I had never owned a shotgun until my father in law gave me one out of the blue one day. Ive been wanting to chop the stock off of it and shorten the barrel since I got it but I also need to make sure its not worth something before I do.

I'd keep it the way it is tbh.... just because it was a gift.  Buy a different one used to saw off if that's what you desire.  Just my 2 cents.  The one we got is nylon so it has no wood that you could saw.  What is the shotgun you have btw?  If you saw it I think it makes it illegal too.  I don't know what the laws are on that still.

 

I also ordered a German made RWS Model 34 .22 caliber pellet rifle today.  It shoots 800fps and should be good at deterring toilet paper looters from a distance.

If I remember correctly its a savage. Doing a quick little research it looks like they can benhad for about $75 used all day. You can alter shotguns as long as they maintain an 18 inch barrel length.

I just listened to this podcast, which did a lot to put this whole thing in perspective. In case you havent seen me mention these podcasts before, I've been listening to this dude for a super long time... Probably over 10 years at this point. Anyhow, he's been 100% on point about a lot of other events. He called the financial crisis in 2008 far ahead of it happening for example. Anyhow, for whatever it matters, I may not trust 100% of what anyone says, but I trust this guy 99%+ based on years of listening, observing, looking things up and experiencing it myself.

 

Whether you're freaked out about what's happening or not, go give it a listen. Its worth the hour or so of your time. If nothing else, it'll be new stuff to discuss so go give it a listen.

Props. Finished earlier. Sounds like this dude and i share a lot of the same thoughts on the situation, although he is definitely more educated on business and economic matters.. and prepper matters.

Them getting together in small groups is no different than walking into a grocery store right now, in fact, it’s probably safer than going to the grocery store. 

You do realize that you have to keep a minimum distance of 6 feet to any other human, right? No matter if its at the grocery store, or elsewhere. Also, your best friends, your family etc, are the ones most likely to pass on the virus to you. 

 

Stay at home!

Believe you said supermarkets where you're at are still stocked?  If so wondering the difference between what you're seeing vs people like Schnitzel.  Maybe AUS and the US are still in panic buy mode?

Theyre still fully stocked in CAN. They also got the first restock

I was in HEB (Houston) this morning.  They had a line out front waiting for the store to open, which we didn't wait long (about 5 mins)  Got everything we needed, store was being stocked while shopping.  Plenty of products from produce, breads, dairy of all types, meats, and everything you can imagine that is on the shelves a year ago.

Everything is good here in Houston.  Far as I know?  I mean, this morning Halliburton is beginning to furlough employees,  half of the work force off for a week and half on in rotation.

I am a small business owner, and right now I have plenty work coming in and working around the clock right now for multiple O&G jobs.   Spoke with a few other small business owners and they are all swamped with work.  Some industries just can't shut down and a lot of jobs just cannot work from home like myself.  

Honestly, regardless, of what is going on tight now in you country, in a few months, I would get ready for a influx of work coming in domestically.  It's gonna hit everyone like a Tsunami.  Which is a good thing.

Anyhow...  

PS - Where is the Covid Sales?  Everything must go!  19% Off!  

Just waiting...  This is Stupid...

Big supermarket and big pharma is not letting this golden chance slip... And there is not a war on. This is not about goods.

 

Its about not socializing, staying 6 feet away from each other.

 

Staying at home!

 

All due respect our population's demos don't line up with Europe's. We don't have nearly as many old people, I don't think it will hit here as hard as it has for you guys. That being said I do agree it's best to do our part not to spread it.
