  1. 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...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Just for the fun of it... So the holiday season of 2014 is upon us.. weather has chilled down over most of the USA and it's dark most of the day. Let's say that you're driving home tonight, almost there, and SHTF. The grid goes down from an EMP. What are the first 3 things you'd think or...
  3. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    IMO, being physically fit and quick are much more important than having the best bug out bag, or best battle rifle. A quick look around my local outdoor range, I see a lot of people who are overweight, some on the verge of being morbidly obese, bad posture, super tight fitting clothes. I...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Thinking over and re-evaluating my BOB tonight and I thought of something I had never thought of before. I've read lots of threads on this board and have never seen this item mentioned, pictures of loved ones. If we are bugging out in a really bad situation chances are you won't be returning to...
  5. Firearms General Discussion
    Most of us on here live in a world (and to me,rightly so)where being prepared means,at a minimum,having a good semi-auto rifle,and most wouldn't consider kicking it off without one....I was recently on a several hr road trip,sitting in the back with my BIL and decided to bring up the subject of...
  6. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I'm not "rich", but I am blessed to be in a position that I am preparing to buy some property, design and build my own "dream home". This will be the house I plan to remain in for the rest of my life (Now in my 30's). So, as work on the house design, I want to incorporate themes and features...
  7. General Discussion
    Are we doing a disservice to ourselves as preppers and serious concerned citizens by our love affair with all things "Zombie"? Stickers, shirts, bullets, ammo cans, and on and on. Is it that we are talking about serious matters like uprisings and SHTF but are we trying not to be seen as...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have limited means as because of my health problems I am unable to work but save every spare penny for preparing for myself and my partner.(as of yet we have no children). Even if it is just something small added extra to our weekly shopping etc, like a few tins of food or OTC meds. My mother...
  9. Military Weapons Forum
    Im not entirely sure if this has been covered yet but im looking for a rifle with decent range and high reliability for 1k or less. From what i've read the vz58 was made by the czechs as a better alternative to the ak so it should be a fairly good firearm but never having shot one myself id like...
  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I am turning 16 in a little less than a month and have been prepping for a while now. I have some stuff such as a BOB that my Dad helped me put together, a chest rig with built in mag pouches and some survival equipment in side pouches. I have tons of old water bottles, 2 liters and other...
  11. Fitness Blogs
    When I was about 13-14 years old I was skinny, weak, and had just gotten the crap beat out of me at school. Jumped from behind outside of the locker rooms. That was in the middle of 8th grade. The school wanted to suspend me for just being involved in a fight. I didn't even defend myself. My...

  13. Shotgun Forum
    Just wondering. It seems like a decent choice to me because you can do real tight quarters stuff, along with the ability to reach out pretty far with slugs. If you get it just right you can carry a decent amount of ammo too. Just wanting to know your opinions thanks to all repliers

  18. Rifle Forum
    Alright, found these surplus Spanish Mausers in .308 for $169.95 for sale at Samco Global Arsenal and I have question. Are these rifles safe to shoot ? I heard that these rifles were chambered in 7x57 Mauser and they converted them to .308 Winchester(7.62x51 NATO). Also I heard that .308 are...
  19. Firearms General Discussion
    Well it's been a month since I had to take apart my shotgun. I was about take it to a gunsmith to reassemble it because I thought my breech bolt would not go into the gun. Last night I realized that it wasn't that, it was the one of the action bar of the forend tube assembly was bent. The...
