  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hello. I have never been in the military for medical reasons. I would be denied for medical reasons. I have never been in a firefight and have no experience with dealing with that kind of stress and adrenaline. Does anyone know of any firearm training drills on how to prepare for that kind of...

    Hello, I have been seeing a few videos of people training in this sort of tactical style: For personal reasons, I am unable to join the military and am very interested in this type of training. Does anyone have any information on this sort of training? How much do these lessons cost? How...

    I am going to kick this off with some resources available in my state, it would be great if others did as well so we can have a resource available to all users. If others participate in this I will make this a sticky at the top of the General, Pistol, and Rifle, and Military Weapons forums...

    The latest tomfoolery of me any my lit'lun. She made the mistake of saying she was bored, something I don't approve of kids complaining about. So, I told her to get into full battle rattle and prep for some training. I recorded some of what followed...

    So my wife and I started running recently after realizing we've both gained about 15lbs in the past 12mo. We also hike pretty regularly when the weather is nice. So here's the thing, we've only recently (today) gotten to the point of running 2 miles, and when we finished I thought to myself "if...

    I just completed the week-long carbine operator course in Moyock NC at the 7000 acre Academi facility. For those that may not know the history, this group was previously known as Blackwater, but reorganized/changed hands after some congressional hearings concerning being a little too eager to...
  8. Firearms General Discussion
    I just moved out to a farm and I want to set up an area for target practice since I'm out far enough in the country I can shoot right here, no need to go to a range. My question for you all is how you would set that up and what types of targets would you include? Originally I was just going to...

    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...
  10. Firearms General Discussion
    I'm pushing 50 and have spent my career in upper management in higher education. I'm starting to worry about having a skill that I can fall back on if the industry goes bad, if SHTF, or if I just get too old to do what I do now. I've started exploring becoming a professional gunsmith but can't...

    We ensure that we get out and hone our survival skills. Our team spends several hours monthly in the woodlands creating shelters, making new traps and honing our fire starting skills. What kind of training recommendations would you make to fellow Preppers? "Prep for the best, Hope for the...
  12. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    I'm very curious to see what the overall consensus in this forum is when it comes to regular physical training as part of your "prepping" efforts. I've seen numerous so called "preppers" who have great food and water stores, a stockpile of firearms and ammunition, all of the fanciest perimeter...

    So two days ago I was giving my wife's friend a ride home from a hospital. He is a big boy 6'7 280 pounds. He sat in the passenger seat while my wife and 3yo sat in the back. We stopped by my house then went to take him home. We were stopped at the exit gate of my community when he flipped...

    And so the push to disarm FLORIDA begins..... I see signs of FLORIDA in their sights next.... While THIS absurd bill will probably never see the light of day, it signals that the mood has shifted from Florida being off limits to gun control to the introduction of legislation geard towards...

    I have looked, and looked, and looked for credible sites. Very few have any reviews or ratings of real people who have taken the courses. The best I've found is Summitt Training Source. They offer a 30 Hour Class for $179. I'm attempting to better my safety career through paying for my own...
