Note: The stuff in light grey are long shots. By long shots I mean they are not realistically funded based on projected levels of spending. Admittedly this is pretty unscientific since I do not have an exact projected preps budget that is divided amongst different areas. It's probably more of a gut feeling based on the last few years of what I will realistically be able to do than anything else.
Attend a quality defensive pistol course. Work messed up a scheduled CSAT course. Undetermined on when/ where I plan to reengage this goal.
Try to attend an Appleseed if I can. Scheduled. Decent odds it will happen.
Following said defensive pistol course begin a dry fire regimen.
Shoot more often. Ideally at least monthly but certainly not more than bi monthly. Doing better.
Set up the big wheel gun the way I want it. Grips, holster, belt, speed loaders, etc all
Put nice grips on the 642 like Alexander Wolfe's.
Maybe start on an AR pistol
Consumables and minor stuff:
250 rounds buckshot
250 rounds #4 shot
4 Ruger 10/22 BXP mags
A stripped AR-15 lower receiver
10 each PMAGs
6x Glock 17 mags
I can always use another 10/22 or a Glock 19 but those are big time long shots.
Run more, keeping better track of it. Maybe do a marathon or something.
Generally keep on doing good things
Break in all extra boots that are currently accessible. Working on it. Going to need to start wearing a pair of old school black leather boots in my off work time.
Not sure exactly where this fits but I want to firm up our heavy (vehicle) bug out packing list then have that stuff ready to go. Also continue developing all of our systems.
Purchase a small enclosed trailer.
Skills: Get a ham radio license. Kinda bumping this to the winter when other stuff is not happening.
Get better with HTLM and web coding stuff (any advice would be great)
Get a ham radio, probably one of the little Baeofong (spelling) setups to start.
Get a set of 2 (4 would be better) good FRS radios with head sets. I have a pair in storage that might work but I've got to test them.
Get a scanner
Keep building our food supply to the interim goal of having a year's worth for 4 people. Put back a lot of food since we have been here.
Continue to improve our cache situation. Set up the Operational Cache. Looking at some other ideas.
Work to develop primitive skills. Nothing has really happened on this.
Get 3-4 more wool blankets. It is hard to recall exactly when I bought minor item like blankets. I am up one or two since them.
Skills: Use the stuff we have more to figure out how to make it work for our needs. Working this one. This includes a good plan for charging Wifey's smart phone on the go.
Many of my major goals have been met. I don't see an AR pistol happening though I will pick up a lower or two. Mostly this is because I really want an S&W Shield. Also I need a few hundred rounds of JIC .308 ammo as well as some match grade stuff and a reloading setup to turn used brass into my own home brewed precision .308 ammo.
Of course I'll keep stashing food away.
Also I need to put about $300 into communications gear. This is honestly long overdue. I'll likely get a scanner first then a couple affordable radios after doing some studying and getting the license.
Need to work on running more.
Overall we are slightly over halfway through the year and I am doing good at knocking stuff off the list.
How are you doing on your years goals?
