Food for FEMA?

Today I pose what may be considered by some to be strange and disturbing questions. Would you grow food for FEMA or DHS if it meant staying alive?

Some OP SEC Basics

Every now and then it’s time to go over the fundamentals, as they say in sports. Today seemed like a good time to review some OP SEC basics. However, if you’re like me and don’t have a military or law enforcement background, you’ve probably heard the term OP SEC, but you’re not sure what it’s […]

Putting Photos Online Could Blow Your Cover

It’s bad enough to know we’re being spied on by Uncle Sam and friends, but you don’t want to unknowingly give away more info about yourself than necessary to anyone.

More Reasons Not to Underestimate the .22 for Survival

The .22 is cast aside by some as only being useful for varmint hunting. But would you and I be so bad off if we used a .22 for self defense? How far will a .22 LR kill? Farther than you can shoot it accurately. A .22 rifle is an invaluable survival tool. Don’t underestimate […]
