Getting ready for any home quarantine with some necessary supplies. A side trip to Princess Auto this morning found some targets for the yard. Got my bacon sliced and packaged this weekend.

I already have everything for shooting and being locked in at home, enough pellets to last me likely over a year or two shooting everyday. But I still order when I use a 2000 or so pellets and stock back up to original levels. Days I don't shoot pellets are bow days or crossbow day in which today was/is. Love the in-house shooting as I can shoot anytime I want. Likely have enough targets printed out, sticker for all my traps ECT to last 25 years. I don't play video games, I do the real thing. CHEERS!

My package from AGS arrived yesterday with my new scope and enough pellets to keep me entertained for the summer. I had targets printed on card stock last fall and I've got my target holders almost finished. Self quarantine isn't going to be too much of an ordeal considering I work from the house and quite often don't leave the property for 3-4 days at a time now. Better safe than sorry. Going to be an interesting summer

I am still waiting for the AA Pro Sport shipment to be delivered to AGS which I was informed they are all ready but lack of flights to leaving the hometown to Canada some days before....

I thought I'd be okay for pellets but my son and I have gone through about 1500 pellets over the past two weeks (we've been self isolated). I ordered another 500 pellets about a week ago but now I'm thinking I need to start ordering them by the kilogram. I didn't order any bacon but I have two full cases of Mr. Noodles geared up and ready to go.

I dont buy the bacon. I make my own bacon and have been waiting for the weather to warm up a bit so I can cold smoke it without it freezing. Another 10lb belly is in the fridge curing right now.

IF you're going to smoke bacon, might as well do some beef jerky while you're at it! What kind of smoker have you got? I've been tempted to buy a smoker for a while now.

I use a cheap, tin box, propane smoker for my cold smoking bacon and cheese. No heat, just an A-ma-zen (https://amazenproducts.com/smokers/6x6-maze-rgb) pellet tray in the bottom as a smoke generator. I have a Kamado Joe for all my hot smoking / grilling needs. My jerky supply is still holding. I'm, what my wife calls, frugal. I buy on sale. I have about 10-15 lb of eye of round already sliced and waiting in the freezer for my next jerky round.

Ive stocked up on canned goods that should last me and the wife a couple months, got 2 boneless beef shortloins all cut up into fast fry steaks 38 steaks total. I love my bacon so i have over 4 packs portioned at 500 grams each. Got about 3000 .22 pellets so i think im set for my Tx200 and benjamin maximus. Only need to re up on .25 pellets for my Artemis M11. Gotta hit up Wes soon because he has the pellets my artemis like the most. Hope everyone is staying healthy.
