National Preparedness Month Checklist

September is National Preparedness Month! As preppers, this is the month that we can claim as our own; Yay! What does that mean for us preppers?

Every person we help get prepared is one less person that might be knocking on our door during the crisis. Some … Continue reading

Episode 11 – Guns for Home Defense

This Episode’s topic is on Defensive guns, particularly for Home Defense. In our past Episodes, we have geared our discussions towards beginning preps, but in this show, we’re going to be talking about concepts beyond beginning preparedness. In order to be serious about defending yourself and your family, you need a firearm. There’s no other tool that allows you even the ‘playing field’ against criminals. DISCLAIMER: Know your locals laws. Get professional training. Do your own research.
