    I'm getting ready to start another job that is over 1 hour from the house. This means that I'm going to put together a GHB in case the shtf while I'm away from the house. My rifle for this will be my SAR-1 AK-47. "IF" the stuff hits the fan while I'm at work and I'm trying to make it home, what...

    I was looking at one of the websites that I get news from and noticed something that I suppose should be obvious, but am trying to figure out which way to take this: Are the times actually getting more violent with younger offenders and more heinous acts, -or- do the crimes just seem more...

    This thread is the "antithesis" of this thread... http://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=205251 If you do anything that the OP of the above thread is doing--you are doomed. And because of all the hub-bub on this "other thread" --I am forced to make you all face the realities of...

    Want to boost moral after a disaster? Security, something to do, and a good hot meal. After hurricane Ike and Rita, the police were not able to resound to 911 calls. The roads were blocked with debris and fallen trees. Some roads were impassable for close to a week after Hurricane Rita...

    Kev, recently posted an excellent article on "Get Home Bags" at his blog here... http://www.survivalboards.com/2011-06-20/ideas-for-a-get-home-bag/ I encourage everyone to read it. I also thought it might be useful to expand on this as a thread. Based on what Kev wrote and my own thoughts I...

    I heard a bill was to be passed and maybe did so already about a Necessary drug test for welfare recipients. If this passed it would explain why up and down the street of where I live everyone i know has had something stolen in the last week. Thats 30 people i know in one week in Boca Raton FL...
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Ok I havent been on this board for long but in all the survivalist boards, websites and such people always say they are worried about OPSEC when it comes to the internet. I always think, maybe incorrectly, that when the SHTF that people that would profit from knowing where I will be located will...

    Was reading a thread further down in this forum about being off the grid, and the issue of OPSEC was being brought up, which reminded me of this recent event with my wife and I... and thought maybe some can learn from it (nothing bad happened, but you will see the vulnerability further into the...

    All this paranoid OPSEC stuff is getting to me a bit. Call me ignorant of the ways of the world if you want, or suggest that there might be "future raiders" on the forum and they might find your precious storehouse... either way, we would be much better off as a group. I don't know how we could...

    I know it may sound funny, but my favorite self-defense method is an air horn. Blasting a would be attacker with the loud ear ringing blast from an air horn and watching it scare the **** out of them is just tooo hilarious. I laughed so hard I nearly forgot to get the hell out of dodge. :D:

    In my area, break ins have increased. Probably 5-10x more frequently that 5 years ago, heck even a year ago. How about in your area?

    I thought our place was well fortified. 2 story walls etc. 3 Mexican teenagers did a well coordinated plan. They hop around like monkeys. We have a patio in the middle of the 2 stories....They somehow made it to the roof and hopped down to the patio. I own a restaurant on the side of my...

    I'm in a serious predicament. My husband and I live in a mobile home at the V-intersection of two well-traveled roadways. We have no privacy whatsoever. We are trying our very best to find a home with acreage, or at least enough affordable acreage on which to build a home. But we are having no...

    Didn't find any surveillance cameras thread so thought I start one. Is it any good to have one or a few around the house just to watch out for looters or thugs? A friend of mine had one installed one on his front door; I thought it would be nice to have a few installed around the house as well...
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I was talking to a friend of my dads today and the topic of 2012 came up and I asked him on a lark if he was prepared for any kind of emergency. He said he wasn't and I asked if that worried him and he said no, he knew where to get supplies if he needed them. Further into the conversation he...

    I am in the process of getting my CCW License and I had told my saftey course instructor that I prefer 22's for the ease of shooting and the price of ammo, plus they make some fairly hard hitting shells for them now such as the stinger rounds. He mentioned the walther p22. I was thinking of...

    Went out to my parents Sat. to do some shooting to fine tune my .243 for a ram hunt I'm going on this coming weekend. I even dug my compound bow out, the first time I have tried to shoot it after my shoulder surgery a few years back. Long story short I went home and started watching some...

    Today the UPS guy delivered a package. I asked him if he saw a lot of packages like this. These companies have their name all across the box like Emergency Essentials and such. He shook his head and said, "You have no idea!" Has anyone thought that UPS/Fedex delivery guys know who has preps of...
