If you’ve been to your local grocery store recently, you probably had problems finding some must-have items like hand sanitizer, disinfectant and, yes, toilet paper. Then there’s the problem paying for whatever you were able to find.
This was the checkout line at my local store in south Austin at 8:30 this morning:
It started at the back of the store near the bakery and snaked its way around to the front. There were probably 75 people in that line (there was another just as long). The store still had a little TP left, but not much.
If you’re one of those who’s been caught short and you’re still on the hunt for bathroom tissue, don’t worry, Franklin Armory has you covered. They’re here to help in these difficult times and will be more than happy to send you an emergency supply of “survivalist/MRE grade toilet paper” for the low, low price of only $386.99.
Yes, that’s rather expensive, but the laws of supply and demand aren’t repealed during an emergency.
The good news: they’ll also throw in a free BFSIII AR-C1 binary trigger for your AR-15 rifle (regular price for the trigger only: $429.99).
The bad news: supplies are limited and the toilet paper is going fast. Oh, and it probably isn’t as soft as you’re used to using. On the plus side, as Franklin says, their TP is . . .
*Better that using tree bark or poison oak
*Easily concealable (perfect for EDC)
*More hygienic than using your bare hand
*Not even remotely waterproof
*Doubles as a fire starter (when dry)
*May save your socks in case of “field defecation” emergencies
Order yours while supplies last.
Other gun companies have jumped in on the toilet paper promos, too. Probably the beginning of a growing, but hopefully fleeting, trend.
