Prepper supplies question
City or County: Manassas
My question is... What's the best way sell/barter extra prepping supplies?
Short version of the story:
My father was completely prepped for the "big one" he expected this year. Then a few months ago he had a massive heart attack and died. He left lots of debt. He expected the economy to collapse this year and thus was buying supplies on credit and wasn't paying his bills.
I have more than enough supplies of my own so I don't want them. He had everything from generators, seed, grain grinder, camping supplies to emergency essentials food, 55 gallon drums, and bottles of propane.
I've been using the 55 gallon drums of gasoline to fuel my truck. I've taken about a ton of scrap metal to the recyclers. Given away as much cat food and as many mason jars as I can get anyone to take.
I am looking for a creative way to get rid of the (literally) tons of supplies without taking a bath on the cost, helping some people, and maybe even getting a tax write-off in the process. He literally spent thousands on emergency essentials foods. In addition to the debt the sheer wieght of supplies has crushed down one of the floors in his house about two inches. So, I have to repair his house also.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.

somewhere to shoot- group land purchase
For those of you who have been to the Tannerite BBQ Shoots at the farm in Chesterfield Co. you know how much fun it is. We shot every gun imaginable, including class 3 machine guns. Blew up tannerite. Cooked out. Camped out. We had fun!!!!
Not sure of the future of the location(farm) of the past shoots.
We members have been discussing having a piece of property of our own, where we can make improvements to the property and always have a place where we can do some shooting and have fun.
So....lets say we find some property:
1. Located in central Va so that members from say Nova wont have to drive to Emporia. I'd say within 30-40 miles from Richmond.
2. Large enough to shoot. Not next to a subdivision or close to city limits.
3. A safe shooting area. Needs to be open with a good wooded backstop and we can ad a berm if need be.
4. Will have to consult a lawyer (SteveBEsq) on how to handle this legally.
Who here would be willing to buy into a piece of property? I'm thinking 50+ acres. Find something thats about $2500 acre. Don't care if it perks or is buildable...just a place to shoot.
What would you be willing to pay to have a permanent place to shoot whenever you want?
