This week on Fireside Friday I go over my personal EDC kit and show the additions I’ve made for Covid-19.
This week on the Canadian Preppers Network YouTube Channel…
We will be talking about seasonality, mutations, new viruses from China & more. Check it out here.

Sometimes, the standard new gun might not be enough to tickle your aesthetic or custom sense. It might look nice and elegant just the way you bought it – but it still does not look that way you have been expecting it to.
Canadian gun laws do not offer you a lot of freedom when it comes to gun ownership, particularly if you go around the prohibited classes. However, if you do eventually acquire a shotgun legally, then it does not necessarily have to remain the way you purchased it. Here are a couple of ways for you to style your gun and make it look even more interesting.
Let’s say that you don’t want any fancy accessories added to your gun. You only want to change the way it looks – to remove that boring, metallic look that most guns have initially. The good thing about gun design is that you do not necessarily have to stick to the old model. You can give it a pattern that will represent you more.
Say, for example, that you want the flag of Canada on your gun. Or maybe you want to give your shotgun a camouflage print. In that case, you might want to get a gun wrap for your firearm. There are various prints and materials to choose from, the most popular being laminate, vinyl, and ink.
2.Double Drum Magazine
Do you want to feel like you are in one of those action movies? Maybe you are in one of those situations where you have to go against the almighty himself. Or maybe you are getting ready for the zombie apocalypse, and you need to shoot as many rounds as possible per second.
No matter the case, you might want to style your gun with a double drum magazine. This accessory is an ammo cache that takes about ten seconds to go from 100 to 0. It is a “combat multiplier” that turns lethal firepower in something even more lethal, giving it a powerful blow. Granted, it is kind of a costly investment – but this custom feature gives you the power to get out of every dangerous situation.
Let’s say that you have an airsoft competition with your friends, and every second that you spend pointing your gun is a second that makes you even more vulnerable. The problem with shotguns is that if you want to have a good aim, you need to point in a straight line.
However, this problem can be fixed with a CornerShot. Plus, aside from its functionality, it will turn your shotgun into a bendy interesting marvel. The style of your gun will suddenly take a futuristic turn – and the best part is that you may fit this accessory with any other kind of gun.
Sure, you might have a decent knack in shooting bullets or pellets from your shotgun – but what if you want more. Sometimes, that might not be just enough, and you might want your shotgun to look like something pulled out of the Civil War.
It’s 2020 now, so we guess the Civil War is over. Still, we can’t say goodbye forever to their styles of guns, as they were too cool. The spear accessory is particularly what caught our eye, as it is both attractive and useful.
Maybe you don’t want to shoot anything. Maybe you just want to spear it or give it a few stings. In this case, a spear accessory might be the thing that gets the point (pun intended). Make sure that you do not pull anyone’s eye out with these spears – or at least someone’s eye that you did not necessarily intend to.
If you’ve ever watched an action movie, you probably noticed how the guy had to surrender after terminating all of their bullets in their shotgun. Now, let’s picture this: your bullets from the shotgun are empty, your enemy gets closer, and you pull a hidden Glock from your shotgun.
Yes, it’s possible – if you use the MULE Adaptive Storage Stock, that is. This gadget is attached instead of your standard stock and has a place where you may install a secondary handgun.
To the untrained eye, it might not look like you are carrying any other extra weapons – but once you reach the hilt of your shotgun, you’ll be able to pull your backup. It is certainly James Bond material, and it will make your gun look cooler.
Want to barbeque a deer in just one shot? Roast a chicken without starting a standard Boy Scout fire? Do you want to add some flare into your shots – to add some literal “Dragon’s Breath” with every shot that you take? Well, in this case, you might want to go for zirconium pyrotechnic ammunition shells – not necessarily because they are overly useful, but because they look cool.
These bullets are practically standard shells, but they have been packed with magnesium pellets. This way, when you pull the trigger, the magnesium will ignite and spread flames throughout its path. Anything caught in its range will probably regret being anywhere close in the first place.
This type of ammo was made to burn things and make your gun look cool. It is not particularly silent, which means you may not be able to use it for hunting – but it is still a good choice if you care for the aesthetics more. Plus, even if you don’t shoot anything live with it, you can shoot at the fireplace and get the fire started.
Sometimes, standard-issue guns are boring. So, why not spruce them up a bit? Some of these accessories are not even that difficult to install, so you might be able to style your gun yourself. All you have to do is decide what you want.
