It's been a while since I have posted on here so I will post what I did in the last few months. Added an AR and a Shockwave to the arsenal and took them out to the range, added more preps like TP, batteries, water, bought a generator, did an ammo inventory and most importantly, I moved out of California.

How loud is the Shockwave? Online it says significantly reduced noise but the pellet is still breaking the sound barrier so is it really that quiet?

Not a big enough difference for me to notice but I was more concerned with what the kick would be like. In case anyone cares, it's not bad at all. My Mossberg 500 with a regular pistol grip (not the birds head) is more painful.

I bought all terrain tires for my 4Runner so we can escape via off-road. Ok, not really, mostly mall-crawling from Starbucks to In & Out to Whole Foods.

Seriously though, the AT tires are a direct result of all of the flooding in SoCal and the fires up here in NorCal. My regular all-seasons on my truck would not cut it if we had to traverse even the mildest of dirt/mud/snow/sand. We wound up getting Falken AT3W's from tirebuyer.com with a 5% discount, free shipping + 4.5% ebates. Not a bad day. And, I just got notification that the tires were already delivered?! I just ordered it earlier this morning. WOW!

Chunky soup on sale at Ralphs for 99 cents a can.. bought a ton.. enough for a few weeks for a family of four.. hell, you don't even HAVE to warm it up..

Been outfitting a shed we have with a small version of our preps.. if house is destroyed, or damaged so bad that we have to dig through it to get to our main supplies we have a months worth of basic stuff (including big tent) in the shed. Didn't want all of my eggs in one basket

Been buying small solar lights and charging options.

Installed one of those doorbell cameras, bought 4 more 5 gal jugs of water, some Lysol cans, Clorox wipes and paper plates. I also bought a couple of indoor cameras and solar security lights that I need to install.

Can you elaborate with #10?

I'm torn on whether to add a 2-5k water tank and count on an engine showing up to do the pumping or build a smaller pumper unit on a trailer. I cant afford a big enough pump and enough hose to pump from a stationary location (big tank)

Not today but lately I have secured more ammo and re did labels on the cans
as to pistol, rifle rnds etc. Acquired vairous knives and firestarter gear, and weekly add to my canned food stash a few cans at a time. Added work gloves
to my out of doors gear, dirty or scratched hands are always a pain and risk
of infection.
