  1. Knives, Swords & Axes
    So if you own more than just a basic folder (Case, Buck), you likely have a few options to use. One becomes your EDC, the knife you grab on a daily basis. Maybe one is your heavy-duty knife, when you need something more robust (this may be your EDC) But then there's the budget folder, the one...

    As prices increase on food and other basic living expenses people have to get creative in order to live well, which is not the same as living in poverty. I am interested in seeing what the group can put together for living well on a tight budget, and maybe shed some light on things we all spend...
  3. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Hey all. I'm still a prepper on a very low budget. Recently, I used up the last single-dose packets of ibuprofen and acetaminophen in my EDC FAK. Refills of the said packs are pretty pricey ($10-$15, depending on the kind, for ~100 tablets.). I've seen some people just purchase the bulk...
  4. Food and water
    We recently moved and our new areas closest grocery store is an Always-Save. I had never shopped there before. Its my favorite store now. It took me a few trips to get used to the layout and most especially to the store brands. In just a few trips, we found the store brands to be better than...

  9. Urban Survival
    I have noticed that a lot of times when reading other people questions regarding urban preparedness that there seems to be some good responses and ideas but most still do not answer the basic questions of "What can I get to start prepping on a low budget ?". A lot of people who want to get into...
  10. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    Hey folks, I've got an old Remington model 700 .308 that belonged to my dad. He bought it sometime in the late 70's and it was left to me when he passed. It currently has an old Tasco 3x9 on it which he mounted when he bought the rifle, the glass is actually pretty good on those older Tasco...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'm sort of new to the website.. I'm 15. I have grown up with my father around weapons in the Las Vegas area. I learned a lot of things about what's going on around us. Not until about a few months ago did I take everything for granted and think life was perfect until my mother the only one who...

    Micro houses, shipping containers, yurts etc. I have a preference for something underground due to hidden and controlled temperature characterists. I'd like to have an idea of what I will need to spend to support a family of four. Thanks

  15. Rifle Forum
    As of right now, my MBR for when the SHTF is my SKS. Im pretty comfortable with it, but most people have suggested that I get a mag fed semi auto and use the SKS for backup. Now I see that would be a wise choice. If I get one ive decided to go with the AK platform in 7.62x39 for...

    I tend to frequent Thrift Stores a couple of times a week. You never know what you'll find, and at a pretty good price. I did a search of this topic and found one hadn't been done. (If so I apologize). I for one like to explore and "hunt" for stuff that others think is junk and I don't want...
