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.

Building the Baddest Bug-out Bicycle!

Building the Baddest Bug-out BicycleThe bicycle is a child’s first form of tangible freedom. It is a rite of passage and allows the young boy or girl a sense of approval from parents to be adventurous, self-reliant and brave.

That first successful sendoff is a bittersweet moment for both parent and child. For the child, that pulse of confidence and stability is a moment of self-worth that lasts a lifetime. For the parent, it is often the first sign that as parents we need to let them go and learn on their own. And when they take a fall on occasion, we have an opportunity to help them move past the bumps and scrapes and encourage them to get back on again. Read more “Building the Baddest Bug-out Bicycle!”

You Need More Discipline Part 1 – SmellWell, it has finally happened. The thing we have all been preparing for has finally occurred and we all got to say a collective ‘I told you so.’ The grid has gone down, Sugar has hit the fan, and society as we know it as has begun to unravel. As a prepper, you are relatively unaffected though because you took the time to stockpile and store up supplies, you planted a garden, your solar panels are providing power and light to your home, and you don’t mind the smell of cooking outside on the grill or with a campfire as the kids are thinking of this as an adventure. Outside your home, however, things are not good. Read more “You Need More Discipline Part 1 – Smell”

Preparedness Class - Second Amendment - NewsHello Team Gunmetal!! Well I was away last week and the reason I was away last week is because I was preparing to teach the first class I had ever taught on how to build your own bug out bag. Here where I live there are a lot of people who want to prepare but don’t know how to prepare and that can be one of the hardest things to learn when you’re trying to get started, as we all know.  Read more “Preparedness Class – Second Amendment – News”

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!”
