The Art of ScavengingThis show Dave talks about the art of scavenging and what to look for after the end. What items would be very useful after the grid goes down. If you happened to be moving through an area what common items could be worth more than gold that others may have over looked. These are items that most Preppers never think about because they are so common and cheap they are not stock piled but are vital and hard to come by in a crunch.

Host: Dane… “The Gunmetal Armory” Audio player provided

E&E, SERE, & Covert Gear: Part 1When we talk about covert gear, covert weaponry, and covert action… the intent has to be the main focus. E&E and SERE are just easier to use to describe the entire scope of tactics that go into those categories… Though we won’t be able to cover every aspect of each one.

The various types of covert action depend on what type of action you are referring to, and what parts of History you look back into. Continue reading E&E, SERE, & Covert Gear: Part 1

Thanksgiving off grid workshop making candles!

Thanksgiving off grid workshop making candles!

Thanksgiving off grid workshop making candlesLiving off grid for most means solar power for light to see when darkness falls and solar means sun. But when living in norther or southern latitudes the sun does not visit long and is often obscured by snow, rain, or a few clouds. We can not rely totally on solar and so we become creative to stay out of the dark. On this Thanksgiving day we went to the office/workshop to make candles. No, for us this is not work but only the beginning of Thanksgiving day in the mountains of northern Idaho.  Follow along for our tip on how to create your own light.

Prepper EDC and Prepper Pocket Tech!This time on the GunMetal Armory, we’re  talking about “EDC and other Pocket Tech”. We go into what the average prepper might carry in their pockets, what they SHOULDN’T carry in their pockets, and the things that I would suggest that they do carry in their pockets.

Gadgets & Gear needed to surviveIn the event of something happening, what gadgets & gear do you have? What do you think you need? I will go over some of the items that we should consider for survival for convenience, or just for comfort. A lot of what we do store is really not a necessity. I think we want our cake and want to eat it to, which is human, but we have to have a different mindset. Some of the niceties might not be an option.

5 Cheap Survival Projects to Make Right Now!

5 Cheap Survival Projects to Make Right NowIf you’re prepping to bug in in case of a major disaster (like most preppers do), you’re probably wondering what piece of gear to buy next? I know spending is fun, but the thing that’s more important is to have survival skills. Besides, some of these items are insanely expensive, they just aren’t worth the money considering you can make them yourself for a fraction of the cost.

In what follows, I want to give you a few easy survival projects you can do without breaking the bank. They’re actually useful, meaning you’re not doing this just for practice. Some of them are even suitable for kids – a great way to introduce them to prepping.

#1. Make an Altoids Tin Oil Lamp

Though altoids tins are most often used by preppers to keep their mini first aid kits, they also make perfect lamps.

The basic idea is to melt the wax of several candles (into a jar or something) by putting it in a pot filled with water on a stove. Once you melt the wax, you pour it into the altoids tin, but not before you glue the candle wicks to the bottom of the container. Continue reading 5 Cheap Survival Projects to Make Right Now!
