  1. Your SHTF last resort rifle and ammo?

    Military Weapons Forum
    What is your SHTF last resort rifle and ammo? At the back of my ammunition storage closet, on the bottom shelf, are two ammo cans filled with 7.62x39. More commonly used calibers are towards the front of the closet - 223 Remington, 9mm, 45acp, 22 long rifle, 30-30 Winchester, 308 Winchester...
  2. Food and Work, 1348 vs 2020

    One of the driving factors for spreading Yersinia pestis (Bubonic plague, aka Black Death) in the Middle Ages was looking for food. For the most part people ate fresh foods. Yes there were stuff like peas, wheat.. etc, but there were no long term food storage like what we have today. Even...
  3. Coronavirus continues to mutate - possible teotwawki

    Coronavirus continues to mutate. This time there is speculation a mutation in India would kill research efforts for a vaccine. I hope all this speculation is wrong.
  4. Coronavirus Will Be Back Fall 2020

    There are a lot of threads asking "what if" Coronavirus comes back in the fall of 2020. Furthermore, several members have compared Coronavirus to the Spanish Flu of 1918, which I think is a fair comparison. Rather than saying "what if" Coronavirus comes back in the fall of 2020, let's just go...
  5. My weekly Walmart/Sam’s Club recon.

    At 10:30 this morning, I went into town to visit Sam’s Club. About 2 weeks ago, the line to enter the store, extended from the door to over 1000 ft. I expected the worst. I was completely surprised to find the store relatively empty of customers. Almost ALL the store shelves were completely...
  6. Liberals face gun sale barriers they approved of

    Political News and Discussion
    As Coronavirus continues to spread people who never considered buying a gun are rushing to the gun store to buy a firearm. Then all of a sudden they are faced with the gun sales barriers they wanted put into place. Tim can get long winded on certain topics, but I like his points on this one...
  7. Is Coronavirus a Plague?

    Would / do you consider Coronavirus a plague? Why or why not? Survey is purely for discussion sake. ~~ EDIT ~~ I did not vote in this poll.
  8. Coronavirus Chat - speak your mind

    Old Soul posted on The Big Thread (Chinese virus) about the need to: "...vent, need to "chat," need to emote, need to follow all kinds of organic thought trains, and connections" and proposed to let the horses run wild so to speak. "...maybe it would take a LOT of pressure off of the mods...
  9. TEOTWAWKI is Upon Us

    Coronavirus has brought about TEOTWAWKI. The virus may not be the next Black Death, or Small Pox, but society will, and has already changed. People who never thought about prepping are buying truckloads of food, water, toilet paper, soap... etc. People who sat in their armchairs and proudly...
  10. End of the World as we Know It: Odds This Year

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    It's pretty easy to browse this forum and find plenty of examples of individual disasters that can cause SHTF and TEOTWAWKI scenarios, and fortunately the worst case examples tend to have the lowest probabilities. However it's good to remember that it doesn't have to be a single event like...
  11. 10 things going on right now

    Manmade and Natural Disasters This has 10 different "plagues" if you will that are hitting this planet as we speak. Sorry for the adds in the link, but it does have a good source of info in it. Just food for thought.. Lots of...
  12. Chinese virus

    Saw this this morning. One to keep an eye on to see if it spreads. Hopefully the Chinese don't downplay what is happening. Be interesting to see if similar checks at airports are stepped up around the world. Chinese authorities have...
  13. Rich Hedge Funders Prepare for Apocalypse

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion ***After a bit of small talk, I realized they had no interest in the information I had prepared about the future of technology. They had come with questions of their own...Which region...
  14. The whole of Australia now in range of North Korean missiles!!!

    Australia and New Zealand
    The whole of Australia is now within range of North Korean missiles.
  15. Petition for national security

    General Discussion
    Listen everybody, your town square isn't the middle of town anymore. Our nation's capital has NO business being on the eastern seaboard next to an ocean. I just started a petition on the White House website to move the nation's capital to the middle of the country, near Kansas City...
  16. What Do You Want?

    Australia and New Zealand
    Judging by the lack of response to my posts, the majority here have different interests to what I have. So perhaps we could have some ideas on posts please. We can forget about primitive skills posts & long term wilderness living/survival, so I assume the majority already know all there is to...
  17. American civil war/revolution

    General Discussion
    Seeing our presIdential candidates (primarily the female Snowden) as well as the "dindu nuffins" attacking law enforcement after a few idiots breaking the law get themselves killed, and don't even get me started on the gun control debates after the most recent shootings. I really think the...
  18. An important TEOTWAWAKI skill

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Here's a pretty good set of instructions for creating pottery. In a full blown TEOTWAWAKI scenario primitive skills like this may be important ... though to be fair the possibility of things breaking down so far that this is needed is astronomically remote ... but I'm one of those weird people...
  19. Sustainable. The name of the game.

    Australia and New Zealand
    I belong to a survival group on Facebook, & it drives me nuts! I really hope this does not offend anyone here, but for the life of me I simply can not understand why people contemplating long term wilderness survival are so fixated with modern gadgets. I get the impression that their interest is...
  20. The Dying Time: Impact

    Books, Movies & Stories
    My thanks to all of you who have purchased my Prepper friendly, apocalyptic ebook "The Dying Time: Impact" and left such great reviews on Amazon. Without readers like you, writers like me wouldn't have an audience. For those who have read it, the sequel and Book 2 in The Dying Time Trilogy is...
