Hank had an idea and I think it's worth passing around.
Lots of us already own weapons and will be able to get
more from the battlefield, when the time comes.

Anyone who has gunsmith, machinist, or metal worker
skills should work on existing weapons so as to
enhance accuracy, extend their range, and inflict more
damage. You could make better telescopic sights,
"hotter" ammo, or dum-dum bullets.

Maybe someone can improvise flame throwers, rocket
launchers, and mortars, even.

Remember to keep records of your experiments and
share your successors with other cells so they can be
replicated elsewhere.

Never give up, and never give in.
