  1. Urban Survival
    Car follows you while you are walking in a secluded or desolate area. The occupants get out and start a formation to surround you. Do you shoot or talk?
  2. Urban Survival
    I haven't seen this discussed much on the boards. Everyone seems to think their fellow man will be the most dangerous animal post-SHTF but what about feral dog packs? They're already a threat in India where 12 children were killed over a one year period near one Indian town...
  3. Urban Survival
    I have been hearing of rumors of massive tunnel systems under most large cities such as San Fransisco, New York Los Angeles and Las Vegas. This made me wonder, in areas where bugging out may be nearly impossible due to the traffic and possible violence that may be occurring in the streets, would...

    I passed my Technician and General Amateur Radio exams last weekend, so now I am shopping for my first gear. I want to start out with a simple man-portable walkabout/bicycle-friendly kit for urban or woodland recon, bugout/bugin, and get home. (Later, as I become more proficient, I will explore...
  5. Urban Survival
    Hi everyone, So I have been thinking of ways to better protect myself inside my second story apartment. I plan to bug in (Shelter in place) if anything bad happens and only bug out if my home is compromised (Burning, Collapsing, etc) as I don't really have any other place to go. I have a 3...
  6. Urban Survival
    A couple of weeks ago I went to a friends house for his kids birthday, I was planning on spending a couple of hours there, I ended up spending the night because the sky opened up and flooded the neighborhood. There were about 30 people at the house, none of us had a vehicle that could get...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So I was looking through my pockets today and I realized that I have a lot of random stuff that people may think I'm a bit loopy for carrying around. Obviously I carry all thsese things for a reason, and each item has come in handy at least once. So here is a list of my EDC items: One small...

    My PSK is the core system of the two bags that I use, my Wilderness Bag and my Go & Get Home Bag. Designed to be easily moved from bag to bag as needed, or carried on its own. If not in a pack, my PSK is designed to be a belt carry system. When I drop my pack, the PSK goes on the belt. I have a...
  9. Urban Survival
    I have no idea how unique or plain this thought is, but here it goes: Could it be that a robber would have a higher chance of survival if you, the victim is armed, assuming you have extensive self-defense and/or martial arts training? Armed victim: The robber makes his attempt to rob you, with...
  10. Rifle Forum
    Does anyone have any ideas for a rifle / shotgun case that doesn't look like one? I live in an apartment complex where anything that isn't screwed down disappears within minutes. Every package delivered by FedEx gets stolen if I don't grab it immediately. So I don't really want to advertise...

    I'm 16 years old living in California. I've been into prepping for a couple years, been around guns all my life and am pretty competent on safety and accuracy. My Dad has pretty much been my mentor through all of it, he is very well trained in survival/ tactics. What I'm wondering is what else...

  13. Urban Survival
    I am a 16 year old boy that has been interested in fitness and prepping for a long time. I am in great physical shape and am wondering what would be better to have. Explosive power, powerful lifting, sprints and size. Or smaller frame, endurance runs, and not as much explosive power. I...

  17. Urban Survival
    I do a lot of work in cities, and I believe I have the appropriate EDC gear. My issue is what is the best way to carry it on my person? I've used my pockets, but it's not comfortable. I'd prefer something with a belt clip/loop. However, it can't be so large/outdoorsy-looking that it looks...

    I am still scratching my head after reading this article, on the front page of the NY Times: http://www.nytimes.com/projects/2013/invisible-child/#/?chapt=1 It is a very long, 5-part article detailing one family living in the shelters and off the dole. The parents do not seem to have any pride...

    You're scavenging through an abandoned house when suddenly you hear an engine and wheels screeching around the corner. The car comes to a stop and you hear doors shut. Two armed men approach the house and spot you. Gun fire erupts, you take cover and begin to return fire..... In a TEOTWAWKI...
