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.

The grid goes down, and ammo supplies dry up?

Dave-Womach-125x125Gun-Show-Pic_sWhat happens when the grid goes down, and ammo supplies dry up? You’re simply forced into three options.

  1. Have no ammo
  2. Steal ammo
  3. Make your own ammo


We’ll spend the day talking about the third option, since the first two are off the table. Reloading your own ammo is not only fun and rewarding, but also extremely practical for the post-modern world.

Imagine the bartering power you’ll have when the neighbor who owns a herd of cows down the road comes over to have you reload his empty 30-06 shells, or the chicken farmer who needs more 12 gauge bird-shot.
