    survival shotgun - shoot over 10 calibers with the Chiappa {X-Caliber} kit
    mixflip



    Published on Jul 23, 2017
    A while back I thought it would be extremely fun to start a new project around a "scavenger shotgun". I wanted a 12 gauge shotgun that could shoot all the popular handgun cartridges available.

    A quick Google search showed me that there was a very popular survival shotgun platform made from an H&R Topper 88 break action single shot shotgun.

    They are dirt cheap and with the factory 12 gauge chamber you automatically have tons of ammo choices.

    But wait!!!! If you buy a caliber adapter kit you can shoot even more ammunition...and this is where the X Caliber kit from Chiappa comes in.

    In the past there were smaller adapters with 4 inch barrels and they were not rifled. This meant very poor accuracy beyond 3 yards and slower velocity due to the extremely short barrel.

    The biggest selling point of the X Caliber kit is that they are 7 inches long and they are all "RIFLED"!

    The choice is clear....if you want 12 gauge adapters....the X Caliber kit is the only one you need if you want to hit your target at longer ranges.

    The Chiappa X Caliber kit sells for about $249 as of the summer of 2017. Click on the link to check the current price.

    Wartime Nutrition (Eating Right During WWII Food Rationing) 1943 US Office of War Information
    Jeff Quitney

    Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound.

    Originally a public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_rat...
    Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b...

    ...By summer 1941 the Office of Price Administration believed... that with factories converting to military production and consuming many critical supplies, rationing would become necessary...

    Tires were the first item to be rationed by the OPA, which ordered the temporary end of sales on 11 December 1941...

    Civilians first received ration books—War Ration Book Number One, or the "Sugar Book"—on 4 May 1942, through more than 100,000 schoolteachers, PTA groups, and other volunteers. A national speed limit of 35 miles per hour was imposed to save fuel and rubber for tires... To get a classification and rationing stamps, one had to appear before a local War Price and Rationing Board which reported to the OPA (which was jokingly said to stand for "Only a Puny A-card")... An A sticker on a car was the lowest priority of gasoline rationing and entitled the car owner to 3 to 4 gallons of gasoline per week. B stickers were issued to workers in the military industry, entitling their holder up to 8 gallons of gasoline per week. C stickers were granted to persons deemed very essential to the war effort, such as doctors. T rations were made available for truckers. Lastly, X stickers on cars entitled the holder to unlimited supplies and were the highest priority in the system. Ministers of Religion, police, firemen, and civil defense workers were in this category. A scandal erupted when 200 Congressmen received these X stickers.

    As of 1 March 1942 dog food could no longer be sold in tin cans, and manufacturers switched to dehydrated versions. As of 1 April 1942 anyone wishing to purchase a new toothpaste tube had to turn in an empty one. Sugar was the first consumer commodity rationed, with all sales ended on 27 April 1942 and resumed on 5 May with a ration of one half pound per person per week, half of normal consumption. Bakeries, ice cream makers, and other commercial users received rations of about 70% of normal usage. Coffee was rationed nationally on 29 November 1942 to one pound every five weeks, about half of normal consumption, in part because of German U-boat attacks on shipping from Brazil. By the end of 1942 ration coupons were used for nine other items. Typewriters, gasoline, bicycles, footwear, Silk, Nylon, fuel oil, stoves, meat, lard, shortening and oils, cheese, butter, margarine, processed foods (canned, bottled, and frozen), dried fruits, canned milk, firewood and coal, jams, jellies, and fruit butter were rationed by November 1943. Many retailers welcomed rationing because they were already experiencing shortages of many items due to rumors and panics, such as flashlights and batteries after Pearl Harbor.

    Medicines such as penicillin were rationed by a triage committee at each hospital.

    Many levels of rationing went into effect. Some items, such as sugar, were distributed evenly based on the number of people in a household. Other items, like gasoline or fuel oil, were rationed only to those who could justify a need...

    Each ration stamp had a generic drawing of an airplane, gun, tank, aircraft carrier, ear of wheat, fruit, etc. and a serial number. Some stamps also had alphabetic lettering. The kind and amount of rationed commodities were not specified on most of the stamps and were not defined until later when local newspapers published, for example, that beginning on a specified date, one airplane stamp was required (in addition to cash) to buy one pair of shoes and one stamp number 30 from ration book four was required to buy five pounds of sugar...

    To enable making change for ration stamps, the government issued "red point" tokens to be given in change for red stamps, and "blue point" tokens in change for blue stamps. The red and blue tokens were about the size of dimes (16 mm) and were made of thin compressed wood fiber material, because metals were in short supply.

    As a result of the rationing, all forms of Automobile racing, including the Indianapolis 500, were banned. Sightseeing driving was also banned.

    Rationing was ended in 1946...

    Recently, Bryan and Nick completed the Frogman Swim, which raised funds for the Navy SEAL Foundation. Today on Gear Tasting, Bryan walks through the gear he used on the swim, as well as some gear he prepared to take but didn’t actually use.

    Also this week, we feature the results of our range trip with the Radian Model 1 and Bryan shares his thoughts on its performance and features. Last but not least, we announce the winner of the Gear Tasting 100 giveaway!
