  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Okay everyone, what are some ideas you have for defense. These don't have to be anything deadly or abstract, but can be. They could be simple as black out curtains and reinforced locks. I am just looking for more ideas than I have already. I have an entire composition notebook filled with...

  3. Vehicles & Transportation
    Can't say i'm wild about the website name, in fact this site came to my attention via a law enforcement threat notification. Whether you might be looking for another way to carry a sidearm while using a motorcycle that uses this type of equipment, or you, like myself just want to stay abreast of...

    Most of us do not have a platoon of preppers in our personal community that can stand guard 24x7, especially at distance or in inclement weather. In a TEOTWAWKI situation the non-preppers, have-nots, gangs, and eventually the zombies will come. If they can get close before you are aware of...
  5. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Months ago I had a problem with several raccoons. I trapped them and I haven't had a problem with them since. I haven't seen a raccoon, fox, or coyote near my chickens since. I've heard some in the field right behind me, and in the fields in front of me. But they don't seem to come close...

    Here is a video that shows the mindset and tactics of a group of looters/raiders. Everyone needs to watch this if they haven't seen it already.

    So most of you have seen my other thread on Bug Out vehicles and potential routes, thoughts, etc. A number of you had good ideas about and for bugging in even with my so far stated worries. Here I will try to further explain my reasons for not wanting to bug in. My house specifically there...
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...
  10. Urban Survival
    Hey guys, Just wondering if anyone out there has some ideas about how to defend an apartment during a shtf situation. Also looking for some ideas about how to keep the fact I have preps hidden, i.e. cooking, waste removal, and lighting. General Ospec stuff? Anyway, I live on the 3rd floor of...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Suppose something REALLY BAD happens. (Think Katrina, before relief arrived.) You are in your neighborhood, bugging in, or getting ready to bug out, and you have throngs of looters/ne'er do wells/skels & scumbags eyeing your house or loved ones or car. How would you respond in such a...
