What’s In My Tool Bag?

Another  one of my favorite survivalist YouTubers (TheUrbanPrepper) takes us on a tour of his tool bag, something he says he’s been working on for over six years now! Personally, I don’t think it should have taken him quite THAT long to put one together, but it’s clear he ended up with a good bag […]

Apparently, great minds think alike because SensiblePrepper finally got on board with creating his own get home bag which, in my humble opinion, is just as important as a traditional bug out bag.

Are Throwing Knives Useful for Survival?

The short answer: not even close! But we had fun throwing them. You see, a few months ago my younger son convinced me to buy a set of these Smith & Wesson 8″ Stainless Steel Throwing Knives which, after reading various reviews of these and other knife sets, seemed to be one of the better […]

The Ultimate Packable Survival Gun?

And here I thought the Henry AR-7 was compact! Clearly, the Chiappa Little Badger is even more so weighing in at a mere 2.9 pounds and, when folded, only 17″ long. If you’re looking for a solid, yet inexpensive, single-shot rifle for any number of reasons, the Little Badger may be just what you’re looking […]
