As a Prepper, It’s not about YOU, but what YOU can do for OTHERS.

  I’m sitting here at 11:30 pm, still in my dirty pants (laying in a semi wet prone position) with a Glock 19 on one hip, 2 spare mags on the other.  I’ve just been reflecting on the events of the day and how proud I am of my daughter.  I set off to re-zero …

My Thoughts on: “Train Like You Fight!”

Somewhere on a rifle range there is a young Soldier waddling up to the firing line to zero their weapon, wearing every piece of kit known to mankind.  As they get down into the prone their protective mask gets in the way, the neck protector chokes them and the piece of extra armor behind their helmet …

When T-SHTF, We Are Coming To YOUR House.

This past weekend my sister and brother in law (BIL) came over to visit, they live about an hour and a half away.  Having been married for just under a year they are still getting their bearings with respect to life in general (together), I sometimes look back when my wife and I started out …

CRKT Guppie Review

Thanks to BlackRiverOutpost.com for providing this neat little device for me to review.  Check out the video below for my thoughts on the device and a run down of just what it is capable of.  The real question is, would this be a necessary addition to your kit or just a novelty item?

Travis Haley Skimmer Enhanced Carry System Trigger Review (Glock 19)

A video review of one of my favorite modifications for my EDC gun (Glock 19), a Travis Haley Skimmer Enhanced Carry System Trigger.  Shorter take-up, a more defined wall, nice crisp break and shorter reset make for accurate shooting and quicker follow up shots.  Check out the video review below. Trigger was purchased from Glocktriggers.com …

A REAL Man: A Response to the Modern Man NYT Article

I just finished reading this article which is sort of sad, hilarious and a stark reminder of just how soft today’s men are becoming.  These are the type of dudes that look like idiots in front of their spouse when they come in contact with real men, maybe their spouse secretly wishes her Beta Male …

Average Guy AR15 Modifications

You’ll notice I did not entitled this article “BEST AR15 Mods” because what is best is probably rather subjective to the user.  Just because a Tier 1 dude loves a piece of kit doesn’t necessarily mean that a varmint hunter will have use for it, or the guy who likes to head to the local …

And….Nothing Happened In September. *yawn*

Lots of experts and bloggers out there calling for the end in September.  And here we sit…Of course now they are moving on to the next big prediction or trying to delicately back peddle.  But wait…this is what they predicted from the beginning, sort of, maybe, just keep reading, I promise it will happen. Practical, …

Field Tested: MilGPS App, Eberlestock V69 Destroyer, Salomon Quest Boots

Last week I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to put three products through their paces while on a military land navigation course.  While I’ve owned them all for a little while now it felt like this was a chance to solely focus on how well they helped (or hindered) me when it came …

Water Filtration Bottle Shootout: Berkey, Lifestaw, Sawyer.

I think we can all agree that having a means by which to filter water should be on a top 5 list for any prepper, and having a small bottle in a bag (survival, bugout, get home et al) almost seems like the common sense thing to do.  Since these bottles are relatively inexpensive and …

CCW: When Your Wife Carries

If I could summarize this article in once sentence it would be this: what works for me doesn’t necessarily work for her, and although I considered that going in the actual application of this premise was eye opening. The Background My wife has had her CCW for quite a few years with her primary weapon …

Uniden Guardian G955 Long Term Review

Thought I’d post a screencast of my long term review. If you are looking for some more situational awareness around the house, don’t want to pay a fortune and expect quality and reliably….this might be the system for you! FWIW: I have no affiliation with Uniden and am not paid to endorse their products. Links …

Is Open Carry Responsible?

What say you? Kyle Lamb’s comments here. Personally I could go both ways on this one and I’ve read just about every argument over and over.  Really for me the situation dictates and while I PREFER to concealed carry sometimes open carry does happen…most of the time when I’m heading to or returning from the …

Running the Haley Strategic 22422 Handgun Drill

Want to see the drill run properly and the thought process behind it? Essentially, multiple targets in a room and you have to deal with it (probably getting shot in the process).  I like the drill just because it’s different, makes your mind and trigger finger work and is tough when you have to keep …

What’s Your Freedom Worth? My Story.

I’ll keep things generic for OPSEC purposes but I wanted to related what happened to me this week, maybe you have been in a similar situation.  Once you read my account of the events which follow, ask yourself if you would make a similar decision.  I’m not saying it’s right or wrong as each must …
