I often get questions about rust protection for long term storage of firearms. There is a company called Italian Gun Grease (all American-made products, but their chemist is Italian--so they thought it would be a catchy name), that have some good products for storing pistols and rifles. They are offering a special 25% introductory discount for SurvivalBlog readers. Enter the coupon code RAWLES25 when you check out. Full disclosure: They offered me a 10% piece of the action for mentioning their products.

A reminder that the tax year ends December 31st, so it is important to complete your charitable contributions for 2012.

If governments won't, then NGOs and missionaries must step in to help. Please pray for South Sudan!
