I'd take the G-19. Best all around on the list if you cant take a carbine or rifle with you.

We know how to be tactical.  And thats tough.  We learned and know you can't just flip a switch.  Source and verification below.


If it were as easy as flipping on a switch to be tactical, everyone would do it. You're among a select group that can be tactical every day. What do you need every day? Gear! We've got a great clearance going on right now (right here) on Urban Carry Gear. Scroll down and catch these savings.

Seems Irma decided to swing west.  Currently it looks like Tampa will get hammered.  With a big hammer.  Hit several times.

When I lived there on some of the roads were signs marking where a storm surge of X feet would be.  Its a bit scary when you are stopped at a traffic light and look at a power pole and see a sign 2 feet above your pickup roof saying -- 8 Foot Storm Surge-- and look around the neighborhood.  News is anticipating a surge there of 10-13 feet and fair chance of 15 foot.

There is a whole lot of GTFOutta there going on.  And I suspect not nearly enough.

One last thought-- Take them all and take a rifle.  With ammo.  Lots of ammo.

Write SSN on you in several places with waterproof marker.  So you can be IDed if you wash up somewhere.  Hope all goes well for you and your tree.

Everybody should be glad you are here on occasion.  Or at least one of those strong 2A folks.


Hurricane Harvey Comments on Currency, Ammo & Guns

Ft Collins, CO –-( Harvey Follow-up:

“Prepare, or go hunting for a four-leaf clover” ~ Marshall

Comments from our students and instructors in the affected area, all of whom are, of course, well prepared:

    “Power and water are off altogether in many areas, intermittent in others”

    “Being fully-armed, with both pistol(s) and rifle, at all times is absolutely mandatory! Most here are helpful and kind, but home-invasions and other kinds of criminal activity are rampant, and any species of police response is hours, maybe days, away. I’ve never before lived through anything like this! The media has not yet caught-up with the enormity of this event.”

    “This is no country for the unarmed!”

    “I used to get laughed-at for having so many flashlights. Not now, as most of them are currently loaned-out to those same skeptics! Not one of my Surefire, Streamlight, nor Firstlight flashlights has let me down. They are literally life-savers, and you can’t have too many!”

    “Cash is king! Credit cards are worthless here. Most big grocery stores are closed. Some convenience stores are open, but shelves are mostly bare, and price-gouging is common. In any event, you’re not buying anything without cash!”

    “So many of the “rescued” are bare-foot! They unhappily discovered that trying to hike any distance in flip-flops is impossible. Flip-flop-wearers, and others among the naively ill-prepared, are not faring well here!”

    “Fuel is unavailable. People are siphoning gasoline out of lawn-mowers and garden tractors in order to power cars, generators, and chain-saws!”

    “Ammunition is absolutely unavailable! No 9mm, 223/5.56mm, 308/7.62×51, 30Soviet/7.62×39, 12ga buckshot/slugs anywhere! Guns cannot be purchased at retailers, because most are closed, and NICS is down anyway. The unarmed are SOL!”

Comment: The affected area is expanding. We may not have seen the worst of it yet!

I sincerely hope the rest of us are taking these lessons seriously!

    “Never give in to adversity. Never trust prosperity. And, never fail to take full note of fortune’s irritating habit of doing exactly as she pleases!” ~ Anon

I would NOT worry about a suppressor!  (I want them to know!!!!!)  Good luck.  If you need anything, let me know.  I have a lot of family in Orlando and they are all staying.

Hey guys, probably not that much rain. But a cat 3 is no slouch when it gets here either. It'll be the adventure of a lifetime for sure. I have family who grew up in the keys that have decided to stay, perhaps to live out there lives. As well as family who are first responders in the keys and for the life of me none of my family are able to tell me who is staying there to ride it out.

I have enough food for 7+ days and a full tank of gas. Hopefully I can charge my phone enough to contact my boss and we all make it. We should, we usually do.

Welp gents, I am not evacuating, but since I am a single Dad I have decided that it's better to spend the hurricane with a friend then do it with just you and the kiddo. I will be taking 3 days of water with me, leaving 4 days behind, but that should be enough that even if I have to drive back to get the rest it will be ok. I have a water purifier good up to 100,000 gallons, and I am bringing at least 3-4 days worth of food. My Camaro engine blew up in August, and so I went and bought a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited just in time for Irmageddon.

For giggles, what handgun do I take with me?

To anyone else stuck in this storm. God speed my friends. PM me and I will try to respond in time with my number if you need a central Florida contact. Off to an adventure.

I think that guy in Orlando area that hangs out here on occasion.  I hope he loaded up and made GOOD about 3 days ago.  Its gonna get some raining going on there in the next day or so.  Some say enough rain to put out all the fires in hell.
