The 10/22 Rifle as a Survival Weapon

What is the best gun to have when things go south? In other words, which firearm will let you survive outdoors, far from civilization, and feed yourself and your family fresh meat that you’ve obtained yourself? This question stirs up a lot of debate, but we are advocates for the Ruger 10/22, a .22 caliber rifle that is a most formidable rifle in the hands of a marksman. It is capable of not only bagging rabbits, but can also take down a deer and can be very deadly with the right sort of knowledge and skill. A Classic Long Gun … Continue reading

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

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
