ALL Survival Gear Is Personal

Posted on 24 April 2014

Each “expert” had their own feelings and opinions, all based on their own knowledge and background. The one thing we all truly agreed on by the end of the conversation was this: ALL survival gear is personal.

Glock Model 42 vs. Walther PPK

Posted on 24 April 2014

That said, if I’m looking for a pocket gun; a gun I can easily tuck away and carry comfortably; a gun that allows me to dress much more comfortably and still manage effective concealment… the Glock 42 would be my choice over the Walther PPK.

Gun Control: Education vs. Legislation

Posted on 22 April 2014

In this article I’m going to attempt to address my personal beliefs about the 2nd Amendment, but I’m going to do so from a particularly odd angle: I’m going to pretend that the 2nd Amendment never existed.

Are There “Gun-Grabber Safe” Firearms?

Posted on 21 April 2014

To this day there are jokes about President Obama being the world’s greatest gun salesman. I’m not too sure that’s actually a joke but I am sure that the concern over gun-grabbers trying to restrict firearms isn’t going away any time soon. With that in mind, I had to wonder if there are some weapons that are less likely to be seized?

Give Me 2: Double-Up on the Basic Necessities

Posted on 14 April 2014

When we talk about survival preparation and equipment, where living or dying can hinge on what we do or don’t have, can we afford to take a less cautious approach? I think not.

Off-Duty and CONCEALED Carry

Posted on 11 April 2014

What I’m beginning to wonder – and have been for some time now – is if we, the pro-gun portion of society – are doing ourselves long term harm by fighting for the ability to carry concealed, and if the pro-gun portions of law enforcement aren’t adding to the fight by mandating concealed carry.

The Rural Home Rifle

Posted on 04 April 2014

Out “in the sticks” a rifle is all but mandatory not only to provide food through hunting, but also to prevent varmints (the pest variety) from becoming a nuisance or threat. What am I talking about?

Two Dream Glocks (for me)

Posted on 27 September 2012

With 23 different variations of Glock available you’d think they make something for everyone. I have to confess that, at one time or another, I’ve owned six of their handguns in 9mm, .40S&W and .45ACP. Certainly their handguns are reliable, simple and “convenient:” easy to handle, easy to maintain. Still, I find myself wishing Glock would make two more variations – and I readily admit that it’s all about me (as I write this) although I’m sure some folks out there would also take an interest in the fictional weapons I’m going to describe.

Pick Only One Gun

Posted on 24 August 2012

If you could only take one long gun and one handgun with you out in a survival situation, what would those guns be? The responses were interesting.

Mosin Nagant Rifle

Posted on 24 January 2012

In fact, the FBI reported that guns were a BIG gift during this past Christmas season with over 1.5 million background checks done as buyer’s picked up new weapons.  SOME of those weapons are “bargain basement” surplus guns such as the topic of this review:  The Mosin Nagant bolt-action rifle.
