Why should I prep?

I am sure if you are like me, and have watched shows like “Doomsday Preppers”, or if you have even watched, listened to, or read the news you are familiar with the term prepping. As with anything in life you need to focus on why before jumping into how, so why bother prepping? The short answer is I don’t know, and you likely don’t either. Many people have many different reasons for prepping ranging from natural disaster to corrupt/inept government. I don’t claim to know who might be right, but I do want to be prepared just in case any of them are. While I have no desire to “scare” anyone into doing anything I think anyone that once again pays attention to local, national, and world news will realize that there is cause for concern.

Based on that I do prep and plan. I plan for how to survive and provide for my family in case life as we know it does not exist tomorrow. I also hope that we can provide you with tips, insights, and ideas on how you can prepare yourself for something as simple as a 3 day snow-in to something as tragic as a complete collapse of society. Over the coming weeks and months we will begin offering insight into what we have on hand to prepare with, and what you can do to be ready for whatever happens. We hope this information will be helpful, and if you have any questions or ideas please don’t hesitate to contact us.

I’m not ashamed

First, I would like to inform everyone that we are back. Well, to be honest we never really went anywhere, but as you may or may not be aware Lokhem is not the primary income stream for us. As such when our main work gets busy we have to put Lokhem on the back burner. The end of last year was very busy, in a good way, for everyone, but now as things slow down a bit we have more time to dedicate to gun sales and transfers, military surplus, and soon survival and prepping gear.

With that out of the way I would like to borrow from Romans 1:16 and remind everyone that we are not ashamed of our Christian heritage. If that offends you then I am sorry you feel that way, but not for what I believe. We are also not ashamed of our beliefs that gun ownership is a right granted to us by the Constitution of this great nation that we feel anyone who desires, within certain legal limits set due to criminal and medical issues, should be afforded the right to own guns and other weapons. Our goal is to assist those people who do seek to legally purchase and own firearms to do so. That could be by selling to you, accepting a transfer on your behalf, or simply answering questions and providing advice. Soon we will also be sharing more information about additional products we will be offering that compliment our existing business. If you have any questions, or need any support, please do not hesitate to contact us.

More exciting news

Welcome to a new week, and more exciting updates from your friends at Lokhem Arms. First, we want to say a giant thank you to you, our friends, that liked and shared our update last week. Because of you our post got almost 800 views on Facebook. While this might seem like small potatoes to say Katy Perry this is a big milestone for us that also led to 6 new people liking our page. So, to say thanks we will have another announcement we think you will all enjoy later this week.

Now for the real announcements.

We were recently approved by two additional suppliers bringing us up to a total of four. This has greatly expanded our available inventory, so if there is something you are looking for odds are we can get it quickly. We are working with a few more suppliers that we hope to secure soon, and will keep you posted as things progress. We were also approved for a merchant account last Friday, and will have the ability to process credit/debit cards with one of those fancy cubes you plug into your phone or tablet within the week. Why do we need to take credit/debit cards? I am glad you asked as that is our final announcement. We will have a table at the Burleson gun show on Saturday May 10th. We would like to invite all of you to come by and say hello, and hopefully buy something so we can test out this new toy, I mean device.

Thanks again for all of your support, and we hope to see you soon.

Lokhem Arms approved by new wholesaler

A few weeks ago we posted that there would be some exciting news in the coming weeks/months. The first of these announcements is that we were approved today by another wholesaler. This supplier offers some firearms, and a lot of accessories and ammunition. We are still in talks with other suppliers about establishing relationships with them to be able to offer our customers the widest variety at the lowest prices. If you are currently in the market for any firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition let us know, and we will do our best to take care of you. This is just the first of what we hope will be a few announcements this week, so check back often.

Spring update

Greetings friends,

Things have seemed somewhat quiet for us the last few weeks or so, but we would like to let you know that while things have looked clam above the surface we have been paddling our legs like crazy ducks under the surface. We have a few announcements now, and will have some additional exciting announcements over the next week or two. The first announcement is that we have started a mailing list. We will offer most/all of our discounts and specials via this mailing list as opposed to on the website in general. We will still offer some specials on the website, but more will be available via the list. To sign up simply enter your first name and email address in the boxes in the right hand column on the site, and click sign up. Also, we would like to request that you like/follow/+1 us on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Google+. The more friends we have the more opportunity we have to offer discounts and specials to everyone. Thanks for sticking with us, and stay tuned for more exciting news soon.
