Reducing Fear by Increasing SecurityWith Halloween fast approaching, little ones are getting primed for masked adventures. This time of year was always one of my favorites growing up – being able to hide in plain sight, to blend with the crowds, to become invisible. I remember lurking around, testing my costume, pining for booty come Halloween night.

Now, as a parent, I realize how things have changed. Neighborhoods shut down. Lights out mean “move along, stranger” and entire streets opt out of the old tradition. Read more “Reducing Fear by Increasing Security”

Home Security for Kids!

Home Security for Kids
Ryan Buford “The Next Generation” Audio player below

Home Security for KidsGrowing up in a typical American suburb, I remember our threats outside the front door were very different compared to today. There were some outside threats that are similar today, but not nearly as many. We could do simple, everyday things to prevent wolves from crossing the threshold and causing harm. I was raised on the cusp of the latchkey generation where both parents worked and kids were expected to fend for themselves after school until either parents got home. This came with a specific set of rules to be followed and not questioned. Read more “Home Security for Kids!”

You Need More OPSEC Discipline Part 3In this week’s show, we are continuing our series on Sight, Smell, and Sound OPSEC discipline.

If you missed that show, we covered no smoking or campfires, using a Dakota Hole or rocket stove, and how to conceal flashlights by using lenses or cat-eyeing them. Then, we touched on reflective surfaces and how to conceal the lights inside your house. Finally, we talked about your appearance and how you need to look thin and gaunt as well as making your home look unappealing. Read more “You Need More OPSEC Discipline Part 3”

More Discipline Part 2 – Sight & AppearanceYou need more discipline and this week we are continuing with Part 2 of our series. Last week was smell and how to exercise more OPSEC on smoke, fire, cooking, and body odor. This week we begin covering sight and appearance. Specifically, we will be covering light and sight discipline. Meaning keeping light signatures low so as not to give away your position or capabilities in the fact that you have power or supplies for lighting. Another topic we are going to cover is how others might see you. Things like keeping your yard clean of trash in order to avoid attention or by putting certain trash out to make it looked like your house has already been looted. We will also cover ideas about how you and your family Read more “More Discipline Part 2 – Sight & Appearance!”

Shelter in place

This week on the GunMetal Armory we’re going to talk about Shelter in place. Shelter in place is something that many different survival blogs and podcasts have addressed and it is something that is extremely important when it comes to any type of an emergency situation.

There are multiple facets to sheltering in place, but none of them are as important as defense. We have talked about fortifying your position before and how to keep your home safe, but sheltering in place has different problems with different solutions. Read more “Shelter in place!”

The Art of Intentional Positioning

The Art of Intentional Positioning
Finding the Purpose Before the Place and Making the Move.
Ryan Buford “The Next Generation” Audio player below!

The Art of Intentional PositioningA heavy aspect of preparedness is where you are in life. Your stability – whether it be financial, physical, mental or otherwise – will have a significant impact on your kids and your family as a whole.

They say a man’s home is his castle. The “Castle Doctrine” for gun use is built around this idea. One of the main ways we can deflect the worry of outside threats is by reinforcing the outer gates. In this week’s episode, we focus on physical place as a source for stability. You can prevent outside threats in the long run by preparing your home from things like severe storms, utility dependency, and food instability. Read more “The Art of Intentional Positioning”

The Secure Dad and ParentingI wish I could say that there has been a gap since my last installment of this school shooting series. I wish I could say that the importance of this topic was fading and that maybe this collection of shows that I have done is going to be irreleavant. I would like to say that I had any confidence in the fact that this was an issue that was going to go away. Read more “The Secure Dad and Parenting!”

Tactical TV Remotes for SHTF

Tactical TV Remotes for SHTF
Micheal Kline “Reality Check” Audio player below!

Tactical TV Remotes for SHTFThis week we are having a little fun with surveillance cameras. Cameras are ubiquitous and most everyone carries one in their pocket. We see the traffic cameras, CCTV, and webcams and to many people, this is good news as the technology can be used to protect us or by giving us the ability to see what goes bump in the night. Webcams allow us to have a face to face conversation with friends and family. Being able to see a person and know they are OK based on their appearance can be worth the world to a parent or child. But, not all of this is rainbows and unicorns. There is a darker side to having all these cameras and it comes in the form of an invasion of privacy. Public and private cameras can be used to peer into our lives without our consent from great distances. Read more “Tactical TV Remotes for SHTF”
