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 …

Theory is one thing, REALITY is another…

Many moons ago on my first deployment overseas I saw a grown man curl up in ball and cry.  This was something I had not anticipated, he seemed like a strong and knowledgeable combat arms non-commissioned officer and leader of men.  It only took 2 months in the spring of 2003 in Iraq to break …

Life is good right now if you live in America, relatively speaking and according to most mainstream media outlets.  The DOW keeps punching through all time highs, gas prices are low, jobs are being added while unemployment is dropping.  Inflation is low and optimism is high, credit is once again plentiful and you too can …

2015: More Of The Same.

I’d like to be able to sit here and make 50 predictions, some bold and some bland with the hopes that a certain percentage actually occur.  After all doesn’t a blind squirrel find a nut every now and then?  It would be especially helpful if some of the predictions centered around high risk events which …

Back to the Future: Before Prepping Was Cool.

My oh my.  The more things change the more they stay the same.  Back when the financial crisis hit people started prepping in droves, the need to be prepared for the unknown sparked a surge in the community.  After all the market was crashing and people were losing their jobs left and right, the gubmit …

Stupid / Ignorant People Look For Trouble

I was recently on a forum and read about the ISIS threat to US Service members.  In the thread one poster mentioned how, when his subordinates found out that ISIS was targeting US Service Members they rushed home to post up maps to their own homes.  As if to entice ISIS members to attempt to …

Reasons I Don’t Let People Borrow My Knife

There are two phrases I don’t like to hear: Can I borrow your knife? Do you have a knife I can borrow? Usually the answer to the first one is: “what do you plan to cut?” followed by “sorry, no.”  The answer to the second one is usually similar to my first answer.  Here’s the …

Black Friday Deal: Valley Food Storage (40% off)

Just wanted to pass this deal along, I recently reviewed some of their food and it was very tasty (write up coming).  I will tell you, it was better than any Mountain House or Backpacker’s Pantry meal I’ve had. Very short window on this opportunity to save big.  Check it out over at the Valley …

New Sponsor! Tower Garden By Juice Plus

All- Just wanted to update everyone on an exciting development, we’ve picked up a new sponsor which offers something quite unlike what you’ll see out there on the side bars of most prepper-ish blogs.  The reason I’m excited is that my wife and I wanted to dabble in Aeroponics for some time now and this …

Last Stand: Patriots. A Novel by William H. Weber

Normally I wouldn’t dedicate an entire post to a book release but this one is special to me.  The author, William H. Weber, contacted me a few months ago and asked if I would like to receive a beta copy of the book so that I could provide my input.  I was honored to do …

Prepping is Practical…and Kind of Boring

Let’s keep it real here.  I don’t want SHTF to happen anytime soon, I’m referring to TEOTWAWKI type SHTF.  I like the comforts that modern life provides for myself and my family.  I like having a job, recreation time, friends, freedom to do many of the things which we find enjoyable.  I don’t fantasize about …

Two Years Later, Still Chugging Along

Labor Day weekend in 2012, I spent most of it getting this blog ready to go live.  I wrote up all of the New Prepper Info articles and screwed around with blog design and functionality.  Who would have thought that 2 years and several hundred articles later this thing would still be going strong and …

I Thought I Had A Tail Today, This Is What I Did…

I drive quite a bit for my job, it doesn’t bother me much as I listen to audio books or jam out to “best of the 80’s” sound tracks on sat radio.  I also like the time alone and the fact that I usually get to pick and choose when and where I want to …
