I got an email ad saying that American Handgunner is needed to help you protect your supplies of toilet paper in these times.

Well played. Well played.

If all else fails, you can always use the magazine anyway ;)

DavidE; All,

FYI, according to WOAI radio here in The Alamo City, FIVE local married women are currently "guests of the county" for having an UGLY BRAWL inside a local store over 2 packages of disposable diapers.
(In addition to 2 of the 5 women, several bystanders were also injured, transported to an ER & admitted to the hospital by the "participants" throwing quart cans of oil at each other.)

All 5 are reportedly being bound over for trial for felony assault, battery. & participating in a "public affray".

yours, sw

I have a nephew who works for a huge paper products company who make paper towel, diapers, and toilet paper.
They've been working 24/7 shifts for the last 30 years.

Each year the company gives the employees and retirees free paper towel and toilet paper in cases.
This is product that has a slight defect like the first sheet off may tear another sheet or two.
It's not bad, they just don't want to sell it and risk complaints, and it costs too much to pulp it and re-manufacture it.
He gave me several cases each of paper towel and toilet paper.

Now that the stores are out of toilet paper I've loaded up several 30 round magazines for my assault weapons so when my 70 and 80 year old neighbors attempt to loot my apartment for the paper I can fire a few rounds over their heads and they can retreat with their canes and walkers.

I've heard the paper plant is barricading the buildings against the mobs soon to be coming to raid the warehouses, the workers are armed with loaded diapers and are not afraid to use them.

We must be vigilant and prepared in these troubled times.

It sounds like it is getting interesting out there. Hang in there, Doughboy and Dfraris. Was in a Walgreens today, no thermometers in stock but no other signs. Hoping everyone around here keeps their heads, most think people are being too cautious, but we will see. Human nature is an interesting thing.

DavidE,

On Friday afternoon about 1600 I wen to HEB on East Houston St to buy a gallon of milk.

When I arrived at the "express checkout", a cashier who I've talked to from time to time said, "Say Tex, you win the award for today." - I asked her what the H that she was talking about.

She asked, "You you NEED that milk??" - I said "YES".

She then said that the store's employees had been worn out by hundreds of customers, who were buying 2, 3 or even 4 carts full of things & in quantities that were obviously far beyond the needs of any family.

yours, sw

That has roughly been my experience as well. I am hoping people get some sense about them, soon. It doesn't take many to cause a problem. I haven't been to a market in a few days, but it has been like that around here.

This is exacerbated by many folks who don't usually come to our area this time of year coming in from outside of our area. We are a summer resort area in New Jersey, and lots of folks who have second homes here or relatives, who normally come down starting around a month from now, are pouring into town. This has caused no small amount of nervousness among locals. Human nature makes it understandable, "There is Plague in Genoa, I must get to Florence," and so forth. However, then as now, there are dangers. A new arrival tested positive recently and became our area's first case.

The other difficulty is that cities and county officials in our area have a long established pattern of ramping up for larger populations during the summer. Hiring up and working up more staff for civil services, etc. This is catching us a couple months early on that curve.

Good call...I ain't afraid to admit; stores scare me these days. Them crazy mom's who want their Lysol wipes and toilet papers are going to stack up a big body count, and I don't intend on being one of them. Besides, if you're killed by a mob of Soccer Moms, I'm pretty sure you can have your Man-Card revoked.

I'm happy to see Trump is finally FULLY engaged and running. I'm the last guy in the world to wave the Trump fan sign (I'm not a Dem fan)... But if there is one thing the Trump Administration does and does well...It's executing on a domestic issue once the decision is made. Dude straight up gets shit done, and that's EXACTLY what we need right now.

I can't find it now, but years ago I saw a cartoon where it's snowing outside and a guy is putting about 6 gallons of milk on the kitchen table.
His wife says; "But Frank, we don't drink milk".

Where did they find oil in quart cans these days?

AH paper is too slick for sanitary use. The daily paper might be a better option.

Visited the grocery store today.....looked like a store in the Soviet Union. Little bread & meat, no rice, spaghetti, spaghetti sauce, paper goods, butter, cheese. There's three subdivisions in the area and they must be stocking up. Will try another in a less populated area tomorrow-have to pick up the new bumper for the pickup.

I always prefered Charmin. "It's squeezable soft." :thumbsup: :rolleyes:
Mr. Gunn: In my area, Cottonelle is on sale more often. I ended up with a few extra 24 packs a month or two ago because I jumped at one of those sales. Who knew?

I have heard it may be easing off a bit around here, as far as the panic buying, but haven't been to a store for a few days. I'll see for myself in a bit, I guess, depending when I eventually head out.

Mr. Moore: It is a strange sight, indeed. If anything has come of this, I guess it is a sad realization that human nature is rather constant. Though many folks are looking to positives and getting closer to one's core and relationships, and I think that is a very good thing, we will see how long this thing goes. In New Jersey, it is getting pretty scary as far as the numbers.

Not sure about your areas, but in the NJ and Philadelphia areas, gun stores have been swamped. ARs and other more defense oriented gear has been selling out.

Yesterday I realized the Sunday Washington Post isn't completely useless.

After doing the crossword puzzle, I carefully stashed the whole paper in the storage closet...just in case. :rolleyes:

And yes, I know using the thing that way will be redundant. :neer:

To All,

I went to the Commissary at Ft Sam Houston about 1400 today. = It looked like the place was "going out of business" = MOST aisles had SEVERAL long empty shelves.

NO bread (the commissary had LOTS of hot-dog buns but NO wienies) , NO eggs, NO dried beans, ALMOST NO meat, LITTLE cheese, NO sour cream, NO baking yeast, NO flour, etc.,etc., etc.

As a result, I had to change my plans for the supper menu completely. = DISGUSTING.

yours, sw
