Stand Your Ground and Castle Doctrine Laws With all of the talk about “Stand Your Ground” laws and self-defense in the “media” lately, I thought that it would be a good idea to take a look at which U.S. states have those laws in place and the definition of what the law is, without all of the media hype. First a […]

Friday : Questions and Answers With The Wolf Pack Question from Rodger R I was hoping to get some advice about hiding gold and silver without a safe. I figure that having a safe is a sure way to tell a burglar that I’ve got valuables. I can’t put in a hidden safe and the run-of-the-mill […]
After my recent cross-dressing post, I thought it would be a good idea to take a more hands on approach today, diverging into a topic I’ve not covered before – empty hand and dirty fighting. I remember my Shotokan instructor telling me, “no matter how good you are or how many trophies you win, on the street […]

Question from Reggie I have been reading your blog for quite awhile, and I am a minority prepper and I am worried that when SHTF will Caucasian preppers accept minority preppers into their groups or kill them off and take their supplies. I worry when reading some of the survival blogs that this is a Whites only club. […]
No matter how prepared we are, supplies and space are finite. Providing for the needs of everyone showing up at our doorstep after the shtf is impossible, but the question remains who should be turned away and what will you do if they refuse to leave?

This guest post by Scott G and entry in our non-fiction writing contest. With the way the government trusts everyone these days, I just bet that everyone feels safe and secure in their privacy…right? OK, yeah, that was a bad, not-too-funny joke. Since anyone who believes that the government as enthroned is populated by people who spout […]
There is absolutely nothing wrong with becoming familiar with a firearm in order to protect yourself and your family. That being said, you should make absolutely certain you are ready for the responsibility and know everything from the proper handling to the proper storage.
