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

Home Security

One of the upgrades done to a home in order to make it more secure is the double-sided steel door, or steel clad door. They can be plain or decorative, but each is a steel shell with a hard foam or wooden core. They take quite a beating from hammers and saws, and make it hard for the average criminal to gain entrance.

With advanced criminals learning to take advantage of police-styled “dynamic entry” methods and tools, it is worth

Allow a Search of Your House for a Terrorist?

Just a quick note. Upon reading the boards, watching on Facebook and Twitter, there are some conversations going on regarding our Constitutional rights and unreasonable searches. It seems that there are very vocal people on both sides of the debate.

What’s the debate, you ask? Were the police warrantless searches of houses, looking for the 2nd Boston bomber, allowable?

One side takes the stand that no, no cop is coming into my house without a warrant. I have a right

The Romans 13 Problem

Christians are sometimes challenged with a certain passage within Romans 13 when discussing the right to self defense and their obligations to “authority”. I came across a study on this yesterday that I found to be very enlightening. Along with an explanation of what the root words for authority and tribute happen to be and mean, it also provided an argument in favor of the wholesale rebellion of the American colonists against Great Britain – though it never intended to.

Defending Against Drones

Got a wild hair tonight, and decided I’d do a quick and filthy search on drone defense techniques. A lot of links came up, and here are a few of them for your review. Some have nothing to do with conducting counter measures work against infiltrators and criminals, but they include interesting thoughts nonetheless.

So, in no particular order of interest or importance….

A Defense Against Drones - Galt's Engine

Rendering drones surveillance null and void via modern tech in the hands of “ordinary” citizens. Sound implausible? An Oregon company intends to make drone eye-in-the-sky defense available to the public. That’s right. To YOU. “Domestic Drone Countermeasures” claims to intend selling equipment that will make it impossible for drones to “complete their mission” by disabling their mission capabilities. (Post Edit: Method at the end)

From their splash page…

“Many different, large area, small area, mobile and fixed Countermeasures and systems

The Census Dot Map

Every once in a while, someone comes up with a neat little internet tool that causes the mind to wander into dusty territory. Looking at this map might remind you of the pictures from space showing lights at night on various continents. It might remind you of how crowded some locations are. Or, it may reinforce your thoughts on bug-outs and roaming hordes.

The Census Dot Map is most useful with “Toggle Labels” on, and of course, zoomed in to

The Rifleman - The Anvil Chorus

My dear wife and I have been enjoying some TV shows that a certain station plays. Emergency, Wild Wild Wild West, George and Gracie among them. One of the shows is “The Rifleman”, starring Chuck Connors. Some of the “son” and “pa” stuff can get sappy via the acting, but the good examples set by it are timeless.

Anyway, last night’s episode was “The Anvil Chorus”. Once it got rolling, and I saw where it was headed, I just laughed

Proposed WA State Gun Ban

Democrats in Washington State have introduced SB 5737, which seeks to severely restrict ownership of military pattern rifles and more. It also seeks to destroy or permanently disable every so-called “assault weapon” by forcing them to be rendered inoperable upon inheritance. ARTICLE at Examiner.

The bill, S.B. 5737, proposes “banning the sale of assault weapons.” According to the legislation, an “assault weapon” is any semiautomatic pistol, pump-action rifle or shotgun that can accept a detachable magazine, with the capacity to

The Real Direction of Drones Overhead

Higher and higher, smarter and smarter and with better eyes than any eagle could ever evolve. I’ve been talking about drones for private use for a while now. Well, here is some information about government drones and your privacy. Keep in mind while looking at this information, that the technology discussed is already in use, with the distinct possibility of having already been replaced with superior equipment. The advancement of technology knows no end point.

Here are some links I
