If you have tried to buy toilet paper, wipes or hand sanitizer this week you see what happens when snow flakes start melting.

This is a reminder to those of us who are prepared and use our brains.   All the local stores here were out of toilet paper but I knew Home Depot had it in the cleaning isle so was able to get some as I was running low.   I am sure it is all now gone as someone will tweet or twit or what ever it is those types do and everyone will know.

While at Walmart I tied to get some baby wipes but they were all gone.  So I went over to cosmetics are and sure enough there were flushable wipes there so I got some and will send them to my daughter who have a 6 week old baby.

I have a project to sand blast a picnic table and was orders to have it done soon as all the snow is gone and she like to sit outside.   Luckly I found some a few packs of face mask as my out side blaster is one dirty job.   Every where was sold out of them so if you have any work like painting or sanding start looking now.

There are zero cases of this virus on this side of my state and these people are going ape shit already.  If it gets stupid I have nor worries as like many of you I have plenty of bullets and beans.

I noticed the price of a case of buckshot went up to $200 from $150 this week on two websites I use.

As much as I would like to blame it on the snowflakes, I can't.  I made the mistake of going to the store Friday because they were having a really good sale on Fritos and Cheetos.  Unknown to me about an hour ahead of that the state had ordered all schools to be shut down until further notice.  And the panic was on, and sadly it wasn't the usual idiots, it was everybody.  Now I'm in SW Louisiana, where preparing for hurricanes and such is normal.  But his was different, and seemed to cross all the normal lines of age and such.  Something about this has pretty much everyone in a tizzy, and of course the wolves are out in force.  Sort of like the great ammo shortage a while back...those folks who would go to a store and buy every box of .22 or whatever caliber was there just so they could turn around and sell it at a profit.  Whatever it is I don't like it, and I'm telling my friends to be ready to hunker down and repel boarders, as there is something strange in the psyche of Americans right now.  Had the son-in-law bring a spare Glock and my 870 over from his place where the big gun safe is, and I'm ready to close the doors for 30 days if need be.

I'm with you Dave but I can't.  My primary Contract demanded and Officer from 5am till 5pm to handle all trucks and all deliveries at a Major Chemical plant Monday through Friday.  I only have four Officers there and the average age is 67.  One has a bed ridden wife, and the others take various medications that can decrease ones immune system.   I am not putting any of them out there.   We only cover nights a weekends and my guys are part timer and all said they would help but I am not going to do that to them. So I get the drivers paper work and info and enter the vestibule and hold it up to a window where my clients employees who are in a safe cleaned environment can see it and enter the info.  They then pass paper work out to me to take to the driver.  It is repeated once the driver exits loaded.   So, I am cannon fodder.   But they hired me to supply officers to that plant 18 years ago and it has been a six figure contract ever since.  Main point is that they hired me to protect their property and employees and this is the time that means some risk.   Being I am dealing with truck drivers from all over the country I consider this "At Risk".   So I rushed home to check for e-mails and then will be getting orders out till they are packed up, shipping labels on and out in the box, then maybe get to be to start again.   My client has no idea how long this will go on.  I will do it till they say stop or I drop.

I am most likely the best prepared person for these times of the people that I know around here and I have been getting calls from guys telling me they immediate thought of me due to my talking about the Pandemic 1918 and how it would spread in days instead of months and why I have what I have and talk like I do.   Some thanked me because they listened and have food, ammo, medication, heat and light sources.   However all express how the toilet paper thing took them by surprise.   I mention the large bundles or baby wipes I have and they always comment that they wish they had thought of that.  Readers, remember I did mention baby wipes on this forum.

This all will pass and many will learn from it.  Other will return to their cavalier style lives and be just as helpless next time.

I restocked on TP from Big lots. They had supply when grocery and hard wares were out. perhaps 22 ammo isn't the ultimate barter item as the gun shops still had ammo. For those think long term Amazon has bidets for sale and beyond that weed sprayers!

I got a bidet years back with because of some health issues, and consider it to be one of the best investments I ever made.  HINT:  get one with an adjustable temperature control.

WTF is a bitet?  What calibers is it and how many rounds does it hold?

As for .22.  The shops may have it at the retail end still but the distributors do not have the lower end stuff.  They have the pricier stuff.  Same with .223.  Only the hunting varmint stuff left.   Mine had a 1000 cases of PPU a couple of weeks ago and I did a large order of various ammo for employees and friends and one got a case of it for one of them.  I'm good on everything for defense and even for a summer of bang bang fun but will have to stock up the range stuff come fall.

A bidet is a tushy washer, one of the greatest inventions mankind has ever done, but also one of the least known and appreciated, IMO.[tongue]  As for the ammo, maybe it is regional but in my area there seems to be plenty of the low-end generic stuff on the shelves.  Fortunately my stockpiles are such that I don't worry about that sort of stuff much any more.  Of course, part of the reason for that is I don't get to shoot much any more, which is unfortunate.

Then a bidet for me would be about .22 caliber and about 10 gauge on April 15th.

I understand the ammo supply on hand.  My trigger time went down once the people of the State of Florida stop paying for mine.   I don't like I should and when I do I am shooting .22 versions of my 1911 and M1 Carbine.  I then shoot some of my target ammo and shoot up what I had been carrying the past few months.    About 10% of the shooting I did most of my career.
