  1. General Discussion
    Went out to our groups hotspot for training and some target shooting and guess what, our lead truck F350 4x4 found the only mudhole deep enough to swallow the entire front of the truck, this thing has a 10 inch lift kit on 35's Aparently at some point during our 2 hour venture to our spot...
  2. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    I didn't want to start a new thread. But all threads on this topic were from 2009. So here it is... I own 2 of the Modular Sleep Systems. They came with a patrol bag that provides cold weather protection from 35 to 50 °F (1.67 °C to 10 °C). The intermediate bag provides cold weather protection...

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/smart-guns-60-minutes-lesley-stahl/ so i wanted to find out what you guys thought about this. it seems to me it may have certain applications. i would never want one in my collection though. then there is the current NJ mandate...
  4. Rifle Forum
    Do you think a high powered air rifle has a place in a shtf scenario as a quiet way to take small game or would it just be a waste of space?
  5. Vehicles & Transportation
    I have seen many ideas on here for a bug out vehicle and SHTF vehicles, Here is my idea for the best well rounded multi purpose vehicle that anyone can have/build with very small budget) Total build 5-8k depending on what all you do. Steps can be added or taken away depending on your area and...
  6. Firearms General Discussion
    I got thinking about this today. In a SHTF situation, if your lucky or prepared enough to have a weapon, especially if you have been displaced or must leave in a hurry, you most likely won't have a cleaning kit. My thought is to give people a list of weapons, especially pistols that will fire...

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2015/08/the-joys-of-socialism-hungry-mob-fights-over-powdered-milk-in-venezuela-video/ If this can happen in an oil rich country like Venezuela, why not in the USA?
  8. Urban Survival
    Hi there, In the next year I am going to be relocating from Canada to Capitol Heights Maryland for schooling/ and a fire program. I am not overly familiar with what its like down there, and was wondering if anyone would have some suggestions for what to do if SHTF while down there. Capitol...
  9. Pistol and Revolver Forum
    Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone had experience with the Ruger 10/22 Charger. It seems like a great, compact bug out gun coupled with the fact that it fires 22lr and uses the same reliable receiver as the 10/22 but in a smaller package. I can think of a lot of possibilities of how this...

  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hi everyone, ive done a little searching on this forum for preparing to get home in a SHTF situation of you work out of town. A lot of people have been asking me strategies on getting home because they too work far away and are preppers as well. Personally I work offshore and fly out of south...
  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    The dust finally settles and now what? Maybe not TEOTWAWKI but a big enough SHTF scenario that we will be on our own for a while. Once that dust settles and people start trying (the best the can) to rebuild there will be trading and interacting so there will have to be some kind of law. The...
  13. General Discussion
    I recently got a chance to train with the Texas state militia in Houston . It has decent backbone as far as recruiting. Warning though if you have experience or are prior service I would stay away. They are basically big kids playing army. They love the Hollywood training but neglect basic...
  14. Financial Forum
    I know this has probably been covered before, but i did not know how to word my search to find it. So If we have a serious SHTF style collapse, where there was a break down in the rule of law. Say the .gov even declared martial law. Banks went belly up from a run. People could not go to work at...
  15. General Discussion
    I wanted to start this translation for a while now, and finally I think I got some time. The whole thing is based on the following thread (in russian), http://forum.guns.ru/forummessage/151/1504669.html and I want to thank you everyone who contributed there. I am changing the way the...
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hey, I took a deep dive through this forum during the weekend, that was more than great!:) So here is my topic:) I read a bit about what to do if SHTF and lazy neighbours "take what they want". But now imagine this-some guests from further away, lets say a 5 hour flight, come to visit you. They...

    The world has been hit by a horrible disease that has wiped out over 95% of the population. The government is nonexistent and all business has come to a halt. Your party of 4 needs to survive by scavenging for food and other items and this could take place anywhere; in a city with abandoned...
  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    All of us know that during a SHTF scenario (especially long term) there can be little to no forms of entertainment. Entertainment will be a necessity in order to not go crazy. Going Stir crazy or any other means is not only a danger to yourself, but it would affect your loved ones. I am not...
  19. Books, Movies & Stories
    What is your personal survival library? Actual books on survival, gardening books, camping books... Really whatever books you think are good to have. My list is some that I have collected over a long period of time and some of them are much better than others. Here are mine: - The Complete...
  20. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Do you have a stash of oils added to your First Aid Kit for when SHTF? http://readynutrition.com/resources/essential-oils-for-shtf-medical-care_09122013/ I have several others but I have every single one that is on that list EXCEPT frankincense --- but it is on my list of ones to get. As is...
