No Knock Raids, Cops & Robbers

Anyone that is not aware of the use of Police “Dynamic Entry” tactics during so-called no-knock raids needs to be aware of them.

Why?

Because the bad guys use those same tactics when conducting HOME INVASIONS. That’s right. The bad guys dress up as “good guys” and smash down doors yelling “Police!” The idea is that YOU won’t shoot a cop, and thusly will allow said bad guys the few SECONDS they need to secure your home for themselves. Playing

Just One Story Highlighting Gun Safety

Forget for a moment that these fools were drinking before the accident that killed a man. Forget that planning to do something as immature as firing into the air is a bad idea. Remember two things from this incident:

ALL GUNS ARE LOADED AT ALL TIMES

DON’T EVER POINT ONE AT SOMETHING UNLESS YOU PLAN TO DESTROY IT

Yes, I was yelling, there. In my best parade ground voice. (But don’t call me “Gunny”) These

Convoys - Configuration and Operation (Civilian)

For the purposes of a civilian prepper group, a convoy can be defined as a group of two or more vehicles (of any type) traveling together under common control from one point to another. There may be multiple way points. Not all vehicles may remain within the convoy. Some might leave at a predetermined point, and others may join. But all will be subject to a common plan of operation in order to maintain orderly and safe transit. Without the

Where is all the 22lr Ammunition?

22lr is hard to get. We had a shelf supply issue a while back that went away. But the situation has returned. Here is a video that one prepper made to explain his thought on it.

I’m not in his camp. I do believe the production has increased, but I also believe there are forces working against its distribution. Personal experience tells me that it isn’t hitting the shelves like it should be, or else the counter men I speak

EMP Methods and Preps - Part III

For previous parts of this series, see:

EMP Methods and Preps – Part I

EMP Methods and Preps – Part II

In the first two parts of this series, I laid out why I believe the threat of an EMP attack on the United States is both possible, and feasible. The returns to the attacker far outweigh his investment in time, technology and the sacrifices among his personnel. I described how certain advances in technology and materials allow attackers to

Marksmanship Training Video - WWII

The Appleseed Project seeks to educate everyday Americans in the art of marksmanship – the goal being to produce “riflemen” in the classic sense. Methods and tests are based on US Army training and qualification tests. Anyone who has attended an Appleseed course will recognize immediately the principles taught in these training videos from WWII. The techniques taught are still valid. There are a good two hours of instruction here. The quality of the video isn’t top notch, but it

List of NBC Shelter Builders

There is a definite increase in interest for bomb /fallout /blast /weather /bio-chem attack shelters this last year. Doomsday Bunkers helped raise general awareness among the average Joe and Jane. Prepper interest, though, seems to have leaped from “I’d like to….” to “Maybe we can sell off a few things and get on board. People are concerned with various scenarios, and bunkers (underground shelters) can reduce or eliminate the effects of these.

A Reply to a YouTube Series of Vids

A reply to a series of videos from a YouTube user by the name of StankMouthCharlie.

Stank Mouth posted a quartet of videos with the title “Why Most Doomsday Preppers Will Die.” They can be found here:

In Charlie’s series, he covers a number of issues relating to the foolishness of prepper stockpiling, training, bugging in or out, marksmanship, manliness, shelters and retreats – all in the face of predatory “gangs” or “posses” with skills and

Government Assisted Identity Theft

As if hacked government databases haven’t already place our personal information at risk, here is news of another problem that promises to be the biggest yet.

The information database necessary for the Health Care exchanges to operate has NOT passed security testing. It will be the world’s largest and most complete storehouse of personal information ever. It will be the target of hackers large and small, government and geek, and the attacks will be round the clock.

Our people can’t

Quad Copter Project

A colleague at work builds multi-rotor copters. His latest creations utilize 4 rotors, carry cameras, and dive into the ocean. Well, that last bit about the ocean was an impromptu trick his tri-copter attempted. The up-side-down video from under water, of him approaching and retrieving the thing from a tidal pool, was hilarious.

I used to build R/C ships. Taking a plan drawing and converting it into production schematics was something I liked to do. With the interesting things builders
