Arm Thyself

Yesterday, there was a protest in downtown Chicago. Seems to have gone rather peacefully, so many of you probably didn’t hear anything about it. If you watch the news reports closely, you’ll find protests are more common than you might think. For every “big” protest that becomes violent, there are many smaller ones with the same potential. It doesn’t matter whether you agree/support their cause or not, being in or around a protest can be very dangerous. I cringe at those fools who bring their children to such an event; talk about child-endangerment. On one side of the spectrum, you … Continue reading

Prepper News Watch for August 19, 2014

As you have, no doubt, noticed, the situation in Ferguson is being fanned by the media, anarchists, criminals, and racists. Don’t be fooled, this is not a protest. It’s a cover for rampant violence from a segment of society whom believes they are entitled. Entitled to what? Apparently, anything they want. This is not a peaceful protest, as you may have been led to believe. These “peaceful” protestors are shooting at the cops, burning buildings, and looting, all in the name of “Give us Justice!” The Police Chief is trying everything he can think of to quell the violence: More … Continue reading

FREE Radioactive Hot Particle Testing of Auto and Home Air Filters

During my interview with Steve Aukstakalnis of AlertsUSA Inc., we forgot to mention this great service that he sponsors: With the ongoing Fukushima disaster in Japan, failing waste storage tanks at Hanford, and faltering nuclear power facilities across the country, the recent release of radioactive materials into the air at the DOE Waste Isolation Pilot Plant near Carlsbad, NM is again heightening concerns about possible health risks to the general public, and rightfully so. Are there radioactive ‘hot particles’ floating around in the air in your local area that could be breathed in? What about inside of your home? The … Continue reading

Recommended Reading: Alternating ammo in your magazine

Published on The Bang Switch // visit site One of the most common comments I’ve seen on my ballistic test videos relate to “stacking” magazines with alternating rounds. I also see this being discussed and even recommended on many of the more popular discussion boards. The theory is that if you put a ball round in in your magazine, then a hollow point, then another ball round, you’re bettering your odds of having the perfect bullet at the right moment to stop the bad guy regardless of what the circumstances might be. I’ve seen some folks go so far as … Continue reading

Recommended Reading: Survival reloading with the Lee Loader

Published on // visit site For those that are just getting started with reloading, a “round” of ammunition is composed of the case, typically called “brass” and usually made of reloadable brass, an appropriately sized and powered replaceable centerfire primer, the powder, and the bullet. The whole process of a detonating round is simple; the hammer in the gun hits the firing pin, which hits the primer which detonates a small explosion which ignites the powder. In turn the burning of the powder builds pressure inside the round in the chamber and pushes the bullet down the barrel. Technically … Continue reading
