Can you guess what the theme will be for Issue #30? Here is a hint:

It’s 1979, and your family just got its favorite TV show, The Hulk, interrupted by the Emergency Broadcast System. This time it’s real. The eerie tone you have heard many times before is much more frightening, due to Russian threats over the last month, their new military alliance with Mexico, and the arrival of two-hundred thousand Soviet troops in allied Marxist Central American countries. You instruct your family to start loading up your 1972 Ford Bronco with food and supplies as you’re are getting out of your soon-to-be-hellhole suburban neighborhood and head for the cabin in the mountains that your dad built in the 1940s. Before you know it, unprepared friends and relatives begin calling and heading over to your house, as the “neighborhood nutcase survivalist” is now everyone’s best friend. You know what you have to do, and the first thing you grab is one of the best damn survivalist rifles ever known to man – the Armalite AR-180! Faster than Johnny Carson can spout his monologue, you and your family are in the Bronco dodging pathetically unprepared suburbanites, while Ted Nugent’s Cat Scratch Fever on 8-track is blaring from your speakers!

SHOWN (left to right, starting at top): 1970s Boy Scout mess kit, hand-warmer, Arby’s fast-food restaurant book of matches (remember when people could smoke in fast-food restaurants and Arby's would give out little metal ashtrays?), Ray-O-Vac model 100 camping lamp, Llama .45 pistol, Panasonic AM radio model R-70, Armalite AR-180 (by Sterling) with spare parts in stock behind butt plate, General Electric walkie-talkie model 3-5961C, spare Ray-O-Vac 9-volt battery, RCA four-channel police scanner model 16S100, 40-round AR-180 magazine.
