John at Gun Geek Rants is asking for help for a fellow gunnie in Texas.
Unless you have been under a rock or only watch Project Runway marathons on Lifetime, you know that Texas has been suffering under a tremendous series of wildfires. One of the worst is the Bastrop Complex Fire. This fire has destroyed at least 1,500 homes, most of Bastrop State Park, and resulted in 2 fatalities.
Virgil Tripp of Tripp Research and STI fame was one of those who lost his home. However, his business was not hit and is still in operation. John has this suggestion.
My suggestion is that you go buy a part from them. Keep them so busy they don’t have time to think about their house burning down. Besides, haven’t you been looking for an excuse to buy a bulletproof 1911 mag?

Sounds like a win-win to me. You get top-notch parts and you help out a family hit by a catastrophe. You can see a picture of the wildfire below. To me it looks like what Armageddon must look like.
