I would really appreciate your help in helping me get the word out about my new news site at http://www.dailycollapsereport.com/ the site offerers news from a number of sources all in one place with my personal commentary and perspective, with the main thrust being the physical, economic and moral decay of our once great country.

Some prefer revolves over auto loading handguns, while others simply want a simple .22 for target practice and recreation on the weekend. The “perfect” handgun for me may not be right for you or your needs, it is a personal choice that only you can make.For me the perfect handgun is the Glock 19. I […]
Today’s non-fiction writing contest entry; “Do you Recognize this Enemy of your Food Storage?” was written Bandurasbox – AKA Salena Not too long ago, my husband took a three week-long business trip to the West coast. Although he has travelled often domestically and abroad for his job in the past, this trip was particularly difficult for me […]

Today’s non-fiction writing contest entry; “What do you use to store your preps in?” was written By Trish We all have various ways to store our preps for various scenarios. Most of us purchase our storage outright from whatever store we like. But what about recycling the plastic storage we find with other items. I’m a strong […]
If you’re like I was, you’re looking through the various disaster preparedness books wondering which one is best. I have worked my way through 7 of the most popular books and offer a shared review of all of them here. I hope this comparison helps you make a decision.
Your centerfire hunting rifle or the very capable shotgun really doesn’t need a large amount of cartridges if used for larger animal food gathering. If you live in a game rich area and depending on the size of your family or group, you may take 2-6 deer or similar sized game per year. Another point about large game harvesting. To make it last you must have refrigeration or be skilled at preserving it with other means like salting or canning.
Let’s assume you know how to hunt game and the worst case is 3 shots for the kill or three rounds per animal. At the kill/ammo rate mentioned that’s 18 cartridges a year for six animals. For five years of hunting that’s only 90 rounds!

When I was in the Army, a paradox involving sleep was rampant Army wide. “Sleep is for the weak!” and “I’ll rest when I’m dead!” were commonly heard, but not as commonly heard as “I’m freakin’ tired.” or “When are we going to get some sack time?” I once slept through a .50 caliber machine gun, unloading several hundred blanks at me from 30 feet away. I was that tired.
It’s not just the Army. Science and common wisdom both have been telling us we need more sleep for centuries, while pop culture glorifies staying up all night. Let’s look at why sleep is important, and more to the point – how it affects us in a survivalist context?
I received an interesting email yesterday, from Johnny S asking me what is the one thing that is on my Amazon.com wishlist that I feel would greatly increase my chances of survival but that I have not been able to afford. That is a great question… don’t you think? Okay to answer, the one thing […]
MD, thanks for all you do on this site, as you’ve made it a very valuable one, IMHO. I have a question for the Pack, related to water. I’ve been increasing our water storage. We live in a small town & depend on city water. If we lost that, our primary resupply would be rain […]
By Michael Snyder – Economic Collapse Blog On Friday night, the city of Ferguson, Missouri was absolutely packed with militarized police. But when the looting started, they did nothing about it. In fact, news reports indicate that the police were lined up just blocks from where the looting was happening but did not make any attempt […]
1. Economic Mayhem Coming for U S : “The Russians and their allies are the ones who really do hold all the cards because they are our creditors. Should Russia and China decide to offer an alternative world reserve currency, and at some point they will, when that happens, it’s going to be economic mayhem […]

“A prudent person foresees the danger ahead and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.”
You may find other survival blogs and prepper websites giving the impression that you need fancy freeze-dried foods, a massive gun collection, a Hummer equipped with a gun turret and a 50 acre retreat secluded in some remote mountain top of Idaho. Although this may seem attractive on some level, it is not possible for the average Joe (or the average Jane). More importantly, you don’t need a six-figure income to help your family become better prepared. We show you how...
