What Did You Prep This Week?

Walk With God

We went to church, I taught Sunday School and even made it to my Wednesday night men’s group. I was pretty strong in my prayer life and Bible study as well. It was a pretty good week for my walk with God.

Self Defense/Hunting

My son in law and I have had a long running project to build him an AR. We have been buying parts and doing some assembly for the last year or so. Last week we finally finished the project, completing his upper. Moose is a big guy so some parts, like the stock and hand-guard are larger than I would have chosen but they fit him well. I still have the parts for the upper I was building alongside his but we were so focused on his, mine got ignored. That’s OK since I have several uppers and lowers already completed. This was more something to do together. Now, we need to get it to the range for testing and get my son to build out (or buy) a 5.56 upper to supplement his 300 Blackout…

For my ARs, especially when they are new and breaking in, I like to use red lithium grease. You can buy tiny tubes of this in the gun shops for around $8.00 each. You can buy the same thing at automotive stores for about $10 for a sixteen ounce tub. We used the last of the grease I had on hand during the build of Moose’s upper so it was time to restock:

This should last me several years and more AR builds than I could afford…

I was placing another order for various items needed for the home repairs and bought another set of bushings for the Hornady press. These allow quick release of the dies and also allows dies to be removed without losing the depth settings so having a few extra on hand for the calibers I reload the most is not a bad idea.


No purchases this week.


Saved quite a bit of money out of Wonderful Wife’s paycheck but it will go towards repairs instead of into savings…


I am very disappointed in myself. I was basically inactive all week. I really need to focus on this more.

That’s it for me. That’s what I prepped this week. How about you? What did you Prep this week?

God Bless

    1. I don’t know what position Moose played, I think he was a lineman of some sort but he has the build and size for being a moose and being from Colorado…the name stuck.
      We won’t discuss what he calls me.
      God bless and thanks for the repost.

      1. I played with #50, because #51 was taken, and when #51 opened in my senior year, I earned a reputation for the #50, so I just stuck with it.
        I did not play football; I played “Kill the Quarterback”.

  1. Sounds like you had a great week! Not much here this week, still putting in lots of range time to prepare for my class. Did manage to hike 24 miles last week so made some progress there. Have great week, God bless.
