This thread appears to have gone off topic a bit.
As for SLR v. F88.  I liked the SLR - You could feel the power.  I would love to own an SLR now but for the F**king NFA and the Class D license thing   :(

Any thoughts on keeping tank water in your bug out location clean?  collect water off the roof, fill your tank but how to prevent the water getting full of algae etc.?

The best thinking has been done in solitude. The worst has been done in turmoil.

Our tanks are concrete and in 45 years have never had an algae problem!
Clear plastic tanks I would imagine would grow algae like lettuce in winter time!

Loose ends make my arse itch and I have just clipped my finger nails. So the itch flows to my trigger finger.

I would prefer an AK47 or a M4. I am lucky my bug out location is near a river that runs from the mountains/hills to the ocean.

Algae need two things to bloom nutrients (Nitrogen/phosphorous) and sunlight, heat can also accelerate growth but not a requirement.  I have never worked with tanks water quality other than the two Polymer tanks I have from Bunnigns at residential property.  Nutrients come from organic matter (leaf litter etc..) and animal waste like bird drippings, if the tank gets sunlight in then cover it.
Can always nuke the algae with a chemical, just to start from a clean point.

A quick google search yielded the following.
