What Did You Prep This Month?

Walk With God

I completed three more rounds of praying for my 100 closest neighbors. Continued teaching Sunday School and attending church.

Self Defense/Hunting

We purchased 40 rounds of 7.62×39, 100 rounds of .22 LR, 80 rounds of 5.56/.223, 1200 rounds of 9mm, 200 rounds of .327 Federal Magnum, 150 rounds of .32 Long and 250 rounds of .44 Magnum. Yes, I was on a bit of a buying spree taking advantage of some seasonal sales and savings.

I sighted in my AR pistol and rifle. Due to time constraints I was only able to get it out to 50 yards. I will go back and take it out to 100 yards when time and the weather permit.

I bought two more magazines for SIG P365.

Deprimed and tumbled over a thousand rounds of empty brass I have been collecting including .38 Special, .327 Magnum, 300 BLK and .44 Magnum, .44 Special, .32 H&R Magnum, 9mm, .30-30, .308, 5.56, .45 ACP, .357 Magnum, and .32 S&W Long. I bought a case gauge for reloading .327 Federal Magnum and did small test batch of .32 S&W Long, .32 H&R Magnum and .327 Federal Magnum. All performed just fine. Purchased some Alliant No. 9 powder for to be able to load some particularly hot .327 Magnum and some .357 Magnum.

Performed a full inventory on all my ammo. Both what is in long term storage and what is on hand for ready use. Some of my counts were way off and purchase plans have been updated accordingly.


Picked up another Eaton radio. This model includes the ability to receive AM/FM and Weather Band channels. It runs off batteries or the hand crank and can also be used to recharge electronic devices via a USB port.


Nothing new here. I still need to sign on with a new security company.


Continued adding money into my 401k and Employee Stock Purchase Plan.

We store most of our liquid assets (cash and precious metals) off site in a secure location away from the house. Before the flood we moved almost everything there. In all the confusion we didn’t have a good inventory of what was where or what we had spent on repairs/recovery. So, we did an inventory on this as well. We spent less than what I thought but next year rebuilding this reserve will be a major focus.


No activity here…but come next month…

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

Take care and God Bless

  1. I keep an index card in each of my ammo cans. On it I list the inventory of the can. When I add or remove boxes from the can I update the round count on the card. Makes inventory much easier.

    1. Hit JT,

      Thanks for stopping in and I like the index card idea.

      I have an inventory spreadsheet and it has generally been pretty up to date and accurate on what is in ammo cans and such. During the flood I moved all my ammo cans to keep them out of the water. In the last year and a half they, along with most everything else we own, were moved around several times. I also had to move some ammo into cans when the shelf I had them on collapsed and I wasn’t as detailed as I should have been during the reorganization. So it was time to put hands and eyeballs on every ammo can, case, and box to make sure what I thought I had was what I really had. In some instances I had more than I though and in others less (I really don’t recall buying that case of .223! I think it might have been on the day of the last presidential election).

      My biggest weakness is not keeping track (as well as I should anyway) of what I use when I head to the range. I need to get better at logging it in and out…That would sure save me some counting in the future.

      Take care and God bless!


  2. I’ve got all my empty brass in all calibers reloaded. Needing to pick up some more components next month. Developed 45 colt hunting loads for my Blackhawk and purchased a Henry in that caliber for next year’s deer. The Henry will be here the 3rd. Dropped off the GP100 for a trigger job and should be getting it back any day. Scoped my Henry 22 for small game hunting.

    Put a deer in the freezer and purchased some long term storage food.

    Was debt free other than 2 years left on the mortgage and had to replace the wife’s car.. ugh.. now there’s a payment.

    Was quite a slacker on church attendance. Need to work on that.

    Acquired enough firewood to last the winter.

    Anxiously awaiting my very first social security check next month.. oh wait, that goes to the car payment.. sheesh

    1. Hi Wally360,

      Thanks for stopping by.

      It sounds like you were pretty productive. I haven’t put a deer or any pigs in the freezer this year but hope to change that next month. Of course, that will mean buy a freezer too since I lost mine when we flooded.

      I am hoping Wonderful Wife can hold out another year or so on the car but the cost of repairing the (so far) little things that are going wrong is starting to add up.

      Take care and God bless.
