Conspiracy: Gun and Ammo Pricing / Availability Rigged?

I was browsing online today looking to pick up another 1000 round case of 9mm ammunition, it seems like every day I get emails from places that keep slashing their prices.  Manufactured ammo is going for around $230 (shipped) per case and reloads are under $200, a far cry from pricing two to three years …

Virigina Reporter Shooting: Thoughts & Screencast

My first screencast, sorry if it’s a bit clunky!  Figure this will get the message out there better than a simple article.

Personal Defense: Ka-Bar TDI Knife Demo

Check out this demo video about the Ka-Bar TDI knives, a good backup option if your main weapon (and strong hand) are disabled.  The timed demos are pretty cool to watch, i.e. the slowest person with a TDI knife is faster than the fastest person with a folding knife. After exchanging some messages with resident …

5 Actions I Actually WILL TAKE if the Market COLLAPSES in SEP/OCT

Personally I don’t think the market will crash in the next couple months but if you look at most of the alt media and even some mainstream media sites I’m in the minority.  Call me pessimistic, call me a fool, maybe I just believe TPTB have too much stake in keeping things afloat for just …

Deez Nuts for President? Hilarious

I found this video, and a subsequent article from Zerohedge both hilarious and spot on. From Zerohedge: The endemic corruption, crony capitalism, rampant regulatory capture, and licentious logrolling that many voters have come to associate with the American political process has created a deep-seated desire for change and if there are two names which most …

Shooting Tomorrow: Fundamentals / Fundamentals

Sometimes it’s fun to get out to the range and shoot up multiple targets with different weapons, various distances, all sorts of drills.  After all if you are spending the time and your own money to get out and train some element of it should be entertaining.  Yet there are points in time when it’s …

Scottish Highlands Backpacking Trip: What Worked and What Didn’t.

From PJ:  Thanks to long time reader and contributor J for taking the time to write about the gear he utilized while on a trip to the Scottish Highlands.  It’s one thing to have a bunch of cool gear sitting in the corner for emergencies, it’s another thing to get out in the bush and …

WHOOPS: CCW License Expired

I’ve been sans pistola for the last week, much to my own chagrin but hey I only have myself to blame.  For some reason I thought that my CCW license renewal coincided with my birthday this year but then last week I happened to pull it out: it expired in the last week of July! …

Prepper Mentality: Good Samaritan? YES.

I pondered writing this article because I absolutely do not want this to come across as a “hey look at me” moment.  Yet I think if we can examine what happened today it will shed light on what I believe is another slice of the proper prepper mentality: the good Samaritan role…something I do not …

5 Things I Am Doing To Prepare for the IMMINENT Collapse in Sep/Oct 2015

I got you, maybe I used that headline to reel you in.  Truth is…I’m not doing anything at all to prepare for what some are certain will be an economic collapse within the next few months.  Yet if you take the time to browse the usual suspects of alt media / blogs dedicated to preparedness …

A Gun NOT ON YOU = No Gun.

I remember attending a funeral recently during which quite a few HD riders showed up to pay their final respects.  Myself and some buddies were standing off to the side as the HD’s lined up and the riders dismounted, chatting and just milling about.  One of the riders opened a top case about 6 feet …

You THINK You’ve Stored Enough Water: WRONG!

I’ll be straight up with this one: I forgot to pay the water bill.  As sure as I’m sitting here at my desk I can see the notice sitting next to me, the one that says something about paying by a certain date or a disconnect will happen.  What can I say, we were out …

Dual Sport: Perfect SHTF Motorcycle

When the weather is decent (read: above 50 and not too much rain in the forecast) I’ll often ride a motorcycle to work.  My bike of choice for such festivities is a KLR 650 outfitted with various performance / protection upgrades  and options for storage in the form of tank, rear rack and side luggage. …

Why I went from TACTICAL to PRACTICAL on my Home Defense Shotgun

Over a year ago I tossed some tasty modifications on my home defense shotgun, which started out as a standard Mossberg 500 persuader (with the “hog leg”). Granted if this is all you have near the bed at night and it’s loaded with 00 Buck or slugs you are definitely sitting pretty, can’t argue with …

The One Thing I Spare NO Expense For

The old saying “you get what you pay for” does not apply unilaterally to every situation and circumstance, after all I’ve had a $15 steak that was just as delicious than a $50 steak occasionally (external factors at play beyond the quality of the cut of meat).  Yet it often rings true that if you …
