Combat HandgunsThere is a lot of nuance that goes in to what people consider to be a Combat Handgun.

The Best Way to Legally Build a Short-Barreled Rifle

The Best Way to Legally Build a Short-Barreled Rifle

300 BlackoutThe Best Way to Legally Build a Short-Barreled Rifle was originally designed to function as a short-barreled rifle, or SBR. That’s the way the military wanted it, that’s how the cartridge was designed to function, and let’s face it, that’s what you really want to build deep down. The same holds true for new weapon platforms chambered in 5.56. Plenty of them are SBRs. You want one? We’re going to explain how to do it! There are two ways to go about the process – one involves official stuff, like paperwork, tax stamps, and actually owning an SBR as defined by the ATF. One involves not building at all. Confused?

Taking Ownership of Self-Defense!

Taking Ownership of Self-Defense!
James Walton “I Am Liberty ” Audio player below!

Taking Ownership of Self-DefenseYou know, a large part of my journey into this prepping world started with the deep understanding that I had to take control of my life. I had always understood financial responsibility but the responsibility to defend was just not clicking. Like many things in life, it clicked when it had to. I remember buying my first heavy bag. It was pale and worn. It was so damned heavy, and it hurt to hit. I remember my knuckles started to change after only a few months. Read more “Taking Ownership of Self-Defense!”

Responsibility as parents with guns!

Responsibility as parents with guns
Ryan Buford “The Next Generation” Audio player below!

Responsibility as parents with gunsGrowing up my dad used to say to me that “gun control is a steady hand” whenever an argument percolated in the media about restrictions on firearms. As a youngster, it was not a slogan or a gimmick. It was not an argument for or against. It was a simple statement that holds a paramount truth of gun ownership, stewardship and responsibility.

A touchy subject now, especially when it comes to kids. We are often exposed to atrocities of misuse of firearms by minors, irresponsible parents, or a combination of the two. Media slant covers the dark side of the gun debate en masse. But what about the hordes of responsible parents and minors that are able to control themselves and shoulder the responsibility Read more “Responsibility as parents with guns!”

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”
