Bugging Back is a term used to mean getting back to your home. In many cases, and probably most cases, you’re not going to be bugging out of town, but trying to get back to your family. This is particularly true for people who don’t work at home, as most events will not require you to bug out from your home, but you’ll definitely want to get back to it. In order to bug back, I see there are 3 basic levels of preparedness for this. It starts what with many call the “everyday carry” level of gear, which is … Continue reading
“Top Off” – whuzzat? Top Off, topping off, whatever you want to call it. It’s the process of getting the last few “gotta have” things before things start getting really hectic. Things are about to start getting really hectic about right now. Even though the current administration had firearms control language in its information websites for quite a while, there were plenty of folks out there that continued to say there’s no issue here, yet. People that were planning for an AWB (Assault Weapons Ban) were panicking, the sky is falling, etc etc. Ok, the sky is now descending at … Continue reading
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.

Not that we ever stopped to begin with…. “H.R. 6257: Assault Weapons Ban Reauthorization Act of 2008″ introduced June 6th, 2008, but sooner or later will be either A)headed to commitee or B)have the wording introduced into other bills. Some interesting verbiage to note, too: (b) DEFINITION OF SEMIAUTOMATIC ASSAULT WEAPON- Section 921(a) of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding after paragraph (29) the following: ‘(30) The term ‘semiautomatic assault weapon’ means– ‘(A) any of the firearms, or copies or duplicates of the firearms in any caliber, known as– ‘(i) Norinco, … Continue reading
If the post-election gun and ammo buying hysteria isn’t proof of why preparedness is needed I don’t know what is. Gun sales have increased and many places, Internet and traditional, are reporting that they’ve been almost bought out of their stock. It’s this mad rush for suddenly (perceived) scarce resources that “preppers” try and avoid. All of this over something that has yet to happen, all of this based on what might happen, has sent people rushing for guns and ammo that have previously been available without question. Now think if this was something necessary to life, like food or … Continue reading
