Coming Soon: Report on an Afternoon of Rifle Shopping and a Visit to Other Worlds

Stepping into a gun shop is more than a bit like visiting another world for me.

Gun Rack
Less than 10% of this store's stock. How do they stay
in business with that much inventory?
Do they sell that much?

Now I know where people buy those "American by Birth, Southern by the Grace of God" and "Heritage Not Hate" bumper stickers. I just never see those for sale at Plan 9 records or Target.

Southern Gun World--Children first!

But every gun shop I visited had them. Ironically, the place where I ended up buying was the oddest, selling bait, terrible terrible imported knock-offs of medieval armor, and dozens of things emblazoned with confederate flags.
The quick summary of the longer story is that I ended up with an SKS rifle, one of the better versions made directly for the american market rather than military surplus.

Because You Have to Chop Wood

I recall watching Frontier House on PBS a year or two ago. I was particularly struck by one snippet of info: the experts who rated how well each family had prepared for the winter unanimously and uniformly felt that none of the families had stored up enough wood. They even warned all of them at the start with a line like "If you don't have some other chore to do, you should be chopping wood."
It takes a lot of wood to get through a winter without heat, especially if you're in the midwest or north. This is a good axe with a strong handle, though the replacement guarantee might not do you any good if the local Home Depot has been looted.
