I’m a little older and retired. I’ve lived through the eruption of Mt. St. Helens, a devastating firestorm, ice storms, windstorms, an earthquake and more recent catastrophic forest fires where smoke was so bad it was off the scale. Now the world contends with COVID-19 the likes of which we have not seen. Those of us with more life experience tend to roll with the punches better than others. We know it will work out despite inevitable changes. We will continue to exist, perhaps a little different for a while.
As we learn from experiences many of us better prepare for tomorrow. I’m not a “prepper” just a survivor. If the water and electricity quits and stores close, I’m prepared and I’ll stay warm and fed. I have options.
My daily carry changed slightly. I’m now carrying spare mags along with the Surefire 6PX Pro flashlight. I home carried much of the time to begin with, now I home carry all the time. From the moment I get dressed to the moment I go to bed, I’m carrying. At night my SIG P229 is beside me. It’s loaded with Hornady Critical Duty carried appendix in a Sticky Holster. The magazine pouch is a The Master’s Holster hand made leather.
