As Sandy bears down on the East coast make sure you are prepared for day to day systems to fail. Be prepared not to be able to get food or water for 5 days or more. Be prepared not to have power for more than a week. Be prepared for inclement weather and high winds around your property – its time to batten down the hatches.
FEMA has a great website dedicated just to hurricanes with how to prepare before, during, and after – http://www.ready.gov/hurricanes.
Dave Canterbury just posted a great video on preparedness for Sandy but as always, great advice for any storm or day to day preparedness:
Be prepared and be safe!

I have a Marlin 22 Win Mag that is dear to my heart. It was actually the first rifle I purchased with my own money and its primary use was for Bustin’ Coyotes. It’s a bolt action and is very accurate. She has been a great rifle but kind of fills a specific niche and since I don’t hunt as much as I used too, her main target now, sorry to say, is paper.
Anyways, in the process of moving some scopes from rifle to rifle I had to go to the range to sight in the new scope that’s on her. Just a cheap 3×9 but gets the job done for a rimfire. When I pulled the Marlin out to put the new scope on it, I lathered her up with some FrogLube and ran the action a couple of times with no real difference but by no means was this gun ever stored dry. She had a good dowsing of lube on the action prior to storage. All I did was wipe off the bolt, and spread a thin layer of FrogLube over bolt. I made no attempt to clean or lube the inner carrier.
This is a fun rifle that as I mentioned has not had a enough range time as of late, so on this outing a wanted to put a couple hundred rounds downrange. I have to say that by round 25 the bolt and action had significantly loosened up and was a dream to work over. I think it took the FrogLube a little bit to work through the traditional gun oil that was on the interworking of the action and once that had been completed the action saw a significant change in ease use. I would highly recommend FrogLube for a bolt gun.
As far as other guns, we are trying to get as many rounds downrange as possible to really give you a good feel for where FrogLube’s strength are. Right off the bat it is awesome in an ARs & bolt actions but we will hold out for more rounds through handguns and AKs.
Here is an interesting video on how FrogLube was able to help the action on a Mosin–Nagant:
