My thanks to Hertz for sending me this email below. Any Three Percenters want to tackle the issues?
What about the capacities/capabilities of 'Patriot Magazines'?
I have read some of the articles on the "SipsyStreetIrregulars" blog but have not seen this topic discussed: What about the capacities/capabilities of 'Patriot Magazines'?
Not the ones you read, but the ones in the Military sense, where munitions are stored and/or manufactured. With all the re-loaders in the country has there been given any thought to the capabilities/capacities for the eventual resupply requirement of a partisan force? The snatch and go supplies that I see emphasized do not speak of a long resistance movement.
Additionally, there are things that us 80 year olds can do to support a partisan movement since we can't go running around the hills fighting. I remember Mater and Pater talking about spending dark nights while the bombers flew overhead re-charging stripper clips and bandoleers left on the battle fields by wasteful Nazis. One man's 'dunnage' is another partisan's supply material. Something we saw overseas after U.S. Forces left a battlefield... the next day the area was completely clean of crates, cans, brass, strippers and anything not totally destroyed.
I know that in a test of my hobby, I was able to put up 2000 units in a ten hour day, with a manual press. And incidently 240 loose units fit nicely in a 2lb coffee can.
Not normally necessary to think about unless one is trying to smuggle 'contraband' to a partisan fighting force. The coffee in the can, while masking the valuable contents is still usable when the cargo is removed.
And how many 'normal' cases of coffee would some BAT go through to find the right ones?
Just some old man's thoughts.
