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

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

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.

Another FFL

Hehe, yes, this is a bait-n-switch. This post has nothing to do with Federal Firearms Licenses. In some of my philosophical discussions as pertains to prepping, I take a stand on actually having a life. Starbucks? Sure! Tasty treats, of course! You’re no survivalist if you’re “all prep, no life.” What is survivalism if it leaves out some of the best of living?

I’ve been an on-again, off-again prepper /survivalist
