Glock Compact vs Sub-Compact for Summer Carry

I don’t know about you but I like to be comfortable.  When it’s cold I put on clothes to stay warm and when it’s hot I wear less clothes to stay cool.  I try not to let my decision to carry a gun dictate what I wear, no ridiculous photog vests or unnecessary outer garments …

Prepper + Vacation = Wise?

Think about what it’s like to feel completely exposed and vulnerable and then try to combine that with the concept of trying to get some must needed rest and relaxation with the family.  You might think that sounds crazy, to me it sounds more like taking a vacation. I should probably define the type of …

Situational Awareness: I FAILED

Quite often I am humbled by experiences and today was no different.  Instead of getting distraught I like to examine the circumstance and see what I can potentially learn from it.  Here’s the deal, I’d like to think that I keep my eyes open when out in public and my head on a swivel.  Today …

3 Things I Do When Cleaning My Guns

Full Disclosure, I’m typing this out while Journey is playing in the background: Don’t Stop Believing.  Had to get that out of the way for the old heads in the room but it’s all good.  “Strangers….waiting…” So tonight I had the joy of cleaning all of the guns I shot this past weekend, I emphasize …

5 Tasks I TRY To Accomplish Daily

Everyone has a routine and I’m no different, yet what sets me apart from the mass populace is that my routine incorporates tasks that most preppers will be able to relate to.  Others who are not in the prep community might look at this list and think I’m a nutcase or pretty extreme but when …

Sweat Now So You Don’t Bleed Later

By rough estimates I would say that I carry a firearm on my person 90% of the time.  The other 10% are usually instances where carrying is impractical or illegal and as such the pistola remains in a safe place not on my person.  I state that because truly in a life or death situation …

So You Want To Live Off The Grid?

Check out this documentary I stumbled across (actually my wife showed it to me).  Pretty good stuff, definitely an eye opener.  If you can’t dedicate 3 days a week to chopping wood….this life isn’t for you.  Although I am strangely intrigued.  The 80+ year old guy living by himself is just ridiculous, talk about a …

It’s Hard to be a DEDICATED Prepper These Days!

I’ll be the first to admit that prepping hasn’t been at the top of my list in the last few weeks.  Winter is losing it’s grip on us and I’ve been planning for Spring and Summer of 2015, and my plans don’t involve anything remotely related to prepping.  Family vacations, motorcycle trips, projects around the …

Figured I’ve had this blog long enough I can post whatever I want.  Friday’s random video: People are crazy.  If you don’t like it, go put your head into a pile of drywall for all I care.  Enjoy the weekend! God is great, Beer is good, People are crazy.

So I Stopped Into The Half Price Bookstore…

I have to admit, I like shiny things which smell new coming out of a box delivered by the UPS driver.  Those are always fun preps to unbox and the anticipation from the time one clicks “buy” online until the item(s) arrive is tough to suppress.  Even as I type this I have some items …

3 Things I Discovered During My Prep Inventories

It’s easy to buy stuff and shove it in the basement and quite honestly that’s what most of us probably do.  What happens when a few years pass and it becomes difficult to remember what exactly you have on hand though?  Is there a need to buy more or are you good to go, this …

Hilarious Armlist.com Post (M855 Green Tip)

If you’ve been paying attention you’ll already know about the potential ban by the BATFE on M855 “Green Tip” Ammo.  I wrote about this a few days ago and have since been searching Armslist.com to take a gander at some of the price gouging attempts.  Today’s nationwide search revealed this gem of a post which …

M855 Green Tip Ban from BATFE: My Thoughts

You might have already seen it making the rounds on the interwebs.  The BATFE has made the move to ban the M855 “Green Tip” which I’m sure many of us have fired at one point or another.  The NRA website posted the info in an article but I’ll cite directly from the ATF”s website. Applying …

What I Look For In A BUGOUT BAG (aka Survival Bag).

Like most people I have gone through various stages over the years with how I address the Bugout Bag conundrum.  A few years ago I actually had two bags, an OD Green Army ALICE pack (rucksack) which I kept staged as a dedicated bugout bag and a smaller heavy duty backpack which I kept in …
