This is the prepper equivalent of that kid’s game about your spouse, house, car, etc.

Glock Gen4 Recall

If you are affected and somehow have missed this, please note that Glock “is voluntarily exchanging the recoil spring assembly (RSA) on its new Gen4 pistols (with the exception of G26 and G27 models). GLOCK has developed a new design to the recoil spring assemblies on its Gen4 pistols to replace several variations that are functioning in the market today. As part of the company’s commitment to perfection, we are voluntarily exchanging the existing RSA in order to ensure our products perform up to GLOCK’s stringent standards.”

Here is how to exchange your recoil spring assembly.

Picking A Survival Rifle By Caliber

A well-prepared post from Survivalist Boards on picking a survival rifle by caliber.

WTSHTF News Excerpt:

This is where calibers like the 30-30 and the 308 come in. Ammunition is cheap, neither caliber has excessive recoil and ammunition is readily available.

Keep in mind that the ’06 is the largest caliber that most people can shoot accurately. The recoil is the main reason why I do not suggest the ’06 unless you need that much firepower.

As always, our advice is to focus on .22LR, .40S&W, .308 and 12 Gauge.
