The very idea of leaving the security of your home to “bug out” to the woods has never sat well with me – In nearly every instance it’s better to hunker down or “bug in” than to bug out. I mean, why leave the safety and familiar surroundings of your home, for the open and […]

Thumbnail image for Are Preppers actually Prepared or Just Kidding Themselves?

When thinking of a prepper, most often we picture a person who has some sort of room in which they store massive quantities of supplies such as food, water, methods of self-defense and tools for hunting. They may have some limited training on survival or bush-craft and hopefully can properly utilize the firearms they spent all that hard earned money on. Ask a prepper what they are preparing for and they will mostly likely draw up some specific event or collapse of some kind. They may even go into their plans on how to survive it.

1. The Pig Trap : “What would they (the founding fathers)think about a government that routinely ignores laws already on the books solely for material and political gain, a government that creates punitive laws through specious methods, and then exempts themselves from being subject to those laws, and when their agents, officials, and appointees are […]

The truth is out there. But, “they” don’t want you to find it. Those two sentences sum up the Fox hit show, The X-Files. Mulder and Scully, out there in a search for the truth. There were always hidden truths and inside men protecting that truth from average folks on the outside. It seems to […]

Thumbnail image for Girls and Guns

A long time ago, I married a city girl. With her came two very citified daughters, thirteen and fifteen. Very beautiful and bright young ladies.

Their previous education on firearms had come from three sources, anti gun family members, friends who had no knowledge of firearms, and of course, the television. To them, guns were a symbol of violence, they were evil things that killed people. Teaching them about firearms was going to be a challenge. I knew they had a lot to learn. What I didn’t know at the time was how much I also had to learn.
