    It's like a anti-freedom, anti-2A, gun-control freaks wet dream of a bill, including just about everything they could want. On first skimming thru, here are some of the lowlights: License necessary to own firearms and ammunition, only with testing and training. Lic'ing decisions may take up...

    Would you store tp or paper towels for SHTF? How much and “how” would you store it correctly? I know about food storage, dry storage is different. Have seen some tp in 55 gallon drums, but how to keep dry?

    I noticed in December the WalMart canned veggie had pop tops. I thought it was a special promotion (38 cents / can) but the store brand cans still have them. convenient, but I worry they won't store as long. any thoughts?

    A few months ago I randomly ran across these 120mm ammo cans. These things are like 3 feet tall and about the width of a .50 caliber can! And cheap! I can't believe I lived without these. With free shipping promos, which are common, they can be had for around $20. This, when quality .50 cans are...

    Local Costco is selling 2 ammo boxes (.50 cal + .30 cal) for $19.99. While I know that it can be purchased for less at some places like Rural King, locally this the best deal. Anybody know of a better deal on new .50 ammo boxes online?

    I was wondering if anyone had heard and/or tasted nu manna foods. I have and with a bit of salt they taste great! Plus they're gmo free, soy free, canola oil free (except for the granola), and if you want, they have a vegetarian diet, though for me, the day I turn vegetarian is the day meat...

    After two years in use, I thought I could finally write an informed thread about my root cellar. Why and how it was built, what I'd do differently if I built it today, etc. Plus, I wanted to get it out of the way before I dove into the next renovative project. My main goal for the cellar was...

    How do you store your ammo, and where? environmental variables like temperature and humidity are important do you use metal ammo cans, canvas tool bag, duffel bag, etc, why?

    Came across this and thought it was pretty cool. Seems like a good way to keep water out of site. I don't know much about this company but it looks pretty legit. I thought if anyone was looking for ideas this might be another to consider.

    thinking about using mine for an underground cache for emergency supplies like ammo, magnesium fire strikers, wire, small arms, knives, cotton towels (for medical clean up and dry kindling starter) and other survival tools.

    Hello all! I was at a flea market the other day and came across this, a vintage jerry can from the USMC. It was marked for water and manufactured by Conco, as best as I can tell. I'm not sure of the metal used, but it doesn't appear to be stainless steel. I started the cleaning by taking a...

    A Zeer Pot is an ancient device used to cool things. It was invented by the Egyptians about 2500 years before Christ was born. It works on the principle of evaporative cooling. It's still in use today in North Africa and I'm going to tell you about it and show you how to make and use one...

    To shake things up and avoid food boredom, I try to stock things in my pantry aside from the typical canned goods, soups, spaghetti sauces, beans, etc. This is not just for long term food storage, but also because I often cook from the pantry during winter months since getting to the grocery...

    I just wanted to post this to remind everyone that even "Secure" mini storage is not secure. I have a mini storage in my hometown that has a secure fence, gates, lighting, and CCTV cameras and 19 units were hit last night including mine. Nothing was taken from mine or at least 9 of the others...

    I am cleaning out my cabinet of canning supplies today. The rings were out of control, spilling all over out of the canister I had them in. Harbor Freight sells some really big carabiner clips (8 inches) that they intend for carrying plastic grocery sacks. Canning rings thread on them and they...
