1 comment(s)

Shotguns are commonly utilized as home defense firearms and are further regularly chosen for indefinite term SHTF guns. Their versatility and all around utility make them attractive for the latter role and their decisive effectiveness against soft targets makes them highly attractive for the former. What’s more, everyone has a shotgun, or has a relative who does. Plenty of folks…

While dogs are, more often than not, the family members that get the most attention, they’re often forgotten when it comes to emergency preparedness. It isn’t just people who go missing or die in case of a disaster. Left unattended, pets will have no choice but to survive on their own (which in many cases means them crawling into a…

Preppers can spend thousands to tens of thousands of dollars on bugout vehicles. Unfortunately, most of us do not have that kind of disposable cash – even for an item of such supreme importance.

What if I told you there existed today a rifle cartridge that has been around for nearly 150 years, one so large that its brass peals like a bell when it strikes the ground, one that launches massive, heavy bullets over great distances and is more than capable of harvesting any land animal on earth. A cartridge that, against all…

Prepping is a lifestyle choice, one chosen and practiced in order to be ready for crises great and small. Life is a harsh teacher in that it so often gives the test first before it gives the lesson. By making the decision to understand, anticipate and plan to counter these tests, you increase your chances of surviving a bad day.…

6 comment(s)

Martial law. The concept itself is vaguely ominous. A declaration of martial law is usually taken as an obvious sign that things have gone from bad to worse in the wake of a disaster, or it may be viewed as a disaster all on its own.

If you have made the choice to utilize a gun for self-defense, you have likely at least thought over the ethics and consequences of using it in defense of your life, or someone else’s. Guns inflict serious and life-altering wounds, wounds that are often fatal. If you or another innocent are attacked with lethal force, it is inarguably ethical to…
