AR vs AK?

Heya Preppers, Well I finally found an AR that had the features I wanted or required for a price I considered affordable, so I took the plunge. The weapon I purchased is a Delton kit built AR, with removable carry handle, and if the shipper can be believed a Wilson barrel. I paid $700.00 for a weapon with a chrome lined bore and removable carry handle, whereas my brother's AR is a DPMS or Panther Arms and has no chrome lined bore and no carry handle, for which he paid around … Continue reading...

Healthcare…Time to get your plans in order!

Welcome to this week's Urban Survival Newsletter! This week was kind of a kick in the gut for me….and many Americans. Between the increasing number of foreign threats that want to destroy us and the domestic threats to our liberty, the last few days should serve as a wake-up call to make sure you are getting your plans squared away to survive breakdowns in civil order in your area. I'm not going to go into depth on the healthcare bill right now. I probably will talk more about Obamacare … Continue reading...

Using Your Furnace During A Power Outage

David Morris here with this weeks Urban Survival Newsletter. One of the big problems that houses in colder climates have is that they don’t have wood fireplaces and their heating systems require electricity to work. Gas furnaces require electricity to run the blower and thermostat, and even most pellet stoves require electricity to run the auger. It’s not uncommon to find whole neighborhoods of houses with gas furnaces, gas fire places, lots of windows, and no backup if the … Continue reading...

My father and brother are helicopter pilots...and if you know any serious helicopter pilots who have flown more than a few hundred hours, you know that they are a different breed. For some reason, … Continue reading...

The Truth About The UN Small Arms Treaty

I get emails ALMOST every day about Obama and Hillary signing on to the UN Small Arms Treaty. They usually say that it happened "last Wednesday" and try to combine it with some current event. In short, these emails are lies/hoaxes/cons sent out to make gun owners look stupid.  Don't fall for it.  If you're going to forward something, forward my newsletters, but please don't spread hoax's like this one.  In fact, if you received a forwarded email with the UN Small Arms Treaty hoax email, please … Continue reading...

Gold vs. Food–Which to buy first

A very common question for people who are getting started with preparedness and changing to a more self-reliant lifestyle goes something like this...I've only got $X.  I know that I need to stock up on food, and I should probably have some gold & silver on hand, but what should I get first? It's a great question and most people screw this one up massively.  (I did)  I've found it effective to look at buying survival/preparedness supplies like Maslov's heirarchy of needs.  If you satisfy a … Continue reading...

Preparedness 101, or One Survivalist's Manifesto

Preparedness 101, or one survivalist's manifesto After I'd been serious about preparedness and self reliance for a year or two, I realized that my buying, training, and planning had been based on whatever was the most exciting or urgent to me at the time.  I'd go through a gun phase, then a food phase, then a natural medicine phase, but I didn't have anything to tie it all together. I want to go over a few things that have acted as a compass for my personal preparedness planning.  Yours should … Continue reading...
