What’s The Best Rifle Sling For The AR-15?

by Joe Nobody One extremely important accessory for a shoulder-fired weapon is frequently overlooked by preppers. It is unpretentious, cheap, readily available, and easy to install. It’s the sling. Suffering from a lack of sex appeal, lost in a plethora of available furniture, and definitely not the cover-girl of gun porn, the lowly sling often suffers from a lack of appreciation – until your body has paid the price. Through the years, I have conducted...

Skills Every Young Man Should Know

“What the Young Man Should Know” From Harper’s Magazine 1933

By Robert Littell, 1933 Glancing out of the window, I can see the subject–and eventual victim–of this inquiry, dangerously perched in the crotch of an old chestnut tree, about fifteen feet above the ground. Should I rush out and tell him to get down? Or should I let him be, hoping that he won’t climb any higher, or, if he does climb any higher, hoping that he will not fall? It is probably all right,...

What did you do to prep this week

Good morning (or evening, or whenever you’re reading this), I hope that you all have had a great week and used the time for good instead of evil, I say that because, well no doubt at least a couple of you are probably planning on taking over the world and enslaving the human population or something like that… Anyway, all joking aside I hope that everyone got something done this week and yes, even small things...

What’s The Difference Between Military and Civilian Firearms?

The more it changes, the more it is the same thing. Alphonse Karr 1849 Arguments against civilian ownership of firearms have been debated as far back as the innovation of firearms. I am certain at some point a Roman Cesar or Egyptian Pharaoh also launched campaigns against the evils of the civilian owned swords or spears as well. There is a reason “civilized” nations tend to want no non-government employee ownership of firearms. It is...

Homesteading and prepping open discussion forum

Well, folks, it’s pouring the rain here as I write this but I’m not complaining because, well, I like the rain. It’s relaxing and most of the time it has a positive effect on my allergies. So it’s a win for me… well until I have to mow my grass which grows faster after it rains and the grass messes with my allergies… I just can’t win… Anyways, I’ve read a few comments (on another site)...

What did you do to prep this week?

Well, folks, here we are again! Another week of prepping and homesteading. A lot of folks have stopped prepping altogether after Trump took office because they now feel secure, they think that their guns are safe so all is well. I saw an example of this thinking yesterday when I was at the local gun shop. The owner and a few others were talking about how great Trump is and how it was God himself that put...

How To Take A Shower In The Woods – Handy Shower Review

Showering while hunting, fishing, camping and just being outside after a good hike is something that is essential and refreshing. Personally, my family has used, abused and gone through 3 or 4 solar/camping showers in the past decade. When the creator of Handy Shower contacted me I decided to accept his offer to review the product in exchange for the product. This is one of the ones I am certainly glad I accepted and did not turn down. Due...

Homesteading and Prepping Open Discussion Forum

Well, folks, it’s one of those mornings… one of those mornings that I wake up feeling like I’ve been hit by a Mac truck with Hillary Clinton at the wheel and driving distracted because she was looking for a Trump Russia collision. That’s the bad thing about living in Tennessee is the constant bombardment by some sort of pollen, dust, or mold spore. I love Tennessee but honestly, I’ve thought about moving to a different...
