In this episode, Aaron shares a special announcement about the future of ITRH and discusses the basics of prepping for winter.
This is by no means an exhaustive checklist. But it is our bi-annual run through of what you should be doing to prepare for the season. And it’s a great way to get your mind focused on what you need to be doing to ensure that your shelter and gear are in working order.
Often as preppers we check something off our list to then stuff it away in a closet, think it’s done, and forget it. If you’re new to prep it’s a great place to start. And if you’ve been around for a while it’ll serve as a good reminder.
Join us as we discuss…
- Listener contributions.
- A special don’t miss announcement.
- Prepping your house for winter.
- Prepping your car for winter.
- Prepping your bags for winter.
Special Project Appleseed Message from Scout:
Hey Guys, I want to invite you out to Davilla Texas, December 22/23 for the last Appleseed of 2012 in Texas. It will be a great time to get out of the house, and onto the line, and get some trigger time in.
While everyone else is slurping those stinky hot wine drinks and listening to Christmas carols….uhh, you can be running half a thousand rounds through your favorite rifle and making sure your ability to make the shot when it counts, is honed and ready.
Maybe you are getting a rifle under the tree on that special day, and maybe you can talk your own special Santa into letting you open it early and take it out on the line for a spin.
Regardless, we will be here, and I hope you will show up too. Davilla is in Central Texas near Temple, Cameron, Waco. Only an hour from Austin, two hours from Houston, two from San Antonio and two from the DFW area.
We will shoot all day Saturday at 25 meters, learning the skills and techniques needed to get your groups down to four minutes of arc using the short distance to allow rapid feedback on shots. That means working on your rifle skills until you can put ten rounds into a postage stamp at 82 feet in thirty seconds. Easy right?
On Sunday, if you bring your center fire, and are shooting down to 6-8 minutes of arc, we will go to the actual distance range and get everyone data for their rifles at 100, 200, 300 and 400 meters, then get you shooting an actual distance AQT.
An AQT, at 25 meters or 400, is four stages, three positions, with magazine changes and multiple targets under time constraints. It doesn’t get much more “practical rifle” than that, right?
Hope to see you guys there!
