The end of the workweek and another original post about what's going on in the world/my life.
Many years ago, Joel Skousen recommended that folks should buy two rifles. One to use for protection and the other to provide spare parts.
That opinion could have cost you a lot of money.
Think about it.
Paying an extra $250 to $1500 for a rifle to act as spare parts, and you only get one extra roll pin, not really. (A roll pin is usually replaced every time you take the pin out, and they cost less than a buck a pin.)
If you are stocking spare parts for your firearms, here are a few sources for, what else but, spare parts.
Numrich Gun Parts Corp.
Also, Shotgun News is a good source for finding companies that might have spare parts for your rifles and handguns. You can find Shotgun News at local grocery stores, bookstores, and/or you can subscribe to it.
Shotgun News is also a great resource for finding companies selling ammunition, pistol and rifle magazines, and many other firearm related equipment, including holsters.
Lastly, you can contact the manufacture of your firearm, if it is a current model, as a source of spare parts.
Joel SkousenAfter I commented about his opinion, I want to suggest you read his book Secure Home. If you can't find a copy at the local library, I would like to suggest looking at the "On-Line Update." The update is a list of recommended equipment and sources for supplies and equipment.
As always, watch those opinions.
