This is a rebroadcast of our Thanksgiving cooking episode. Enjoy and have a great Thanksgiving. 

How to cook better is the main topic of the week. First, though I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. If you are listening to this I am very grateful to you.

In this episode, Mike and I give our knowledge on how to cook better. Though neither of us are professional chefs we are both accomplished home cooks. We share with you some of the techniques that allow us to make great food.

We talk about cooking at the right temperature. Do not get a skillet scorching hot for eggs. Some food tastes much better when cooked at lower temperatures. The opposite is true with a good steak. Having the skillet blazing hot to ensure a proper sear is best.

We talk about how using acid ( Not the fun kind, sorry) can improve flavors. Using an acid, like vinegar or lemon juice when cooking does a lot to make the flavors pop. I always splash any vegetables I’m cooking with some vinegar. You will begin to notice when a dish could have used acid in the future. Also watching Food Network competition shows will make more sense now.

Once again Mike shares his way of cooking a turkey. I will admit that Mike makes the best turkey. Sorry, Momma. His turkeys are always so moist and flavorful. No need to drown your turkey in gravy.

We cover many more ways to improve your cooking.

Olight M2R Warrior The Rechargeable Tactical Light You Need

Olight M2R Warrior The Rechargeable Tactical Light You Need

 

 

 

My favorite flashlight company just sent me a new light for testing and review. This time I have the Olight M2R Warrior

I have owned several Olight lights now and that company is always improving. They go above and beyond for their research and manufacturing. 

Although all their lights would do well in a tactical situation this is the first I’ve owned that is purpose-built for it. 

I have been testing it for the past week so I can tell you all about it. I even broke my own personal rule and read the instructions. 

The Specs

  • Max Lumens 1,500
  • 7 Light settings
  • Aluminum Body With Hard Anodizing
  • IPX8 Certified
  • 18650 Battery
  • USB rechargeable

 

Moon Mode: 1 Lumen 25 days

Low 15: Lumens 70 hours

Med 2: 60 Lumens 20 Hours

Med 1: 250 Lumens 6 Hours

High: 700 Lumens 2 Hours

Turbo: 1,000~700 Lumens 3+120 Minutes

Tactical Turbo: 1,500~700 Lumens 3+120 Minutes 

The Extras

Olight is great about including extras in the packaging. And the packaging itself is nice. 

With the Olight M2R Warrior You get the light, 18650 (3500mAh) battery, USB Magnetic charging cable, Holster, Laynard and the user manual. 

The holster is very well made. No loose stitching. Has a drainage grommet in the bottom. A plastic fasting clip and a belt loop with a metal button. 

The lanyard is a great design and feels great on the wrist. It even comes with metal guides to help you thread it through the lanyard hole. 

 

Performance

At first, I was annoyed that to get to the highest brightness you had to press in the tail cap and hold it. But not press too deeply or you would activate the strobe mode. 

That was because I didn’t read the instructions. 

Deep press the tail cap and click the side button to change to and from the enhanched tactical mode. 

Also, I found out how to get to the brightest mode on the side button. Double press the side button to get to high then double press again to get to turbo mode. 

When you turn off the light it will go back down to the last non-turbo setting. 

If you are patroling pressing the tail cap button in to get the high mode and having quick access to the strobe mode is great. 

You can have the side button activated and have a finger on the tail to go to strobe if needed. 

And with the rechargeable 18650 battery, you won’t have to worry about running out of power and spending a fortune on batteries. 

Cons

After reading the manual and learning how to work the Olight M2R Warrior I have fewer issues with the light. 

In fact, my only issue is in the weight. And that is 5.47 oz with the battery. Which is only about a third a pound. 

When I build EDC systems I try to reduce weight and bulk as much as possible. 

 

Conclusion

In conclusion, the Olight M2R Warrior is a great light. It is very purpose-built for tactical uses though. 

I say it is best for Military, Police and Security Guards. 

The Olight M2R Warrior would also be good as a bedside light you use to check out noises in the night. 

The weight keeps it from being my go-to EDC light though. The Olight H2R Nova is my favorite still. 

Where to Buy

eBay Store

How To Signal For Survival | episode 168

https://www.survivalpunk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/signaling-for-survival.mp3

Download

 

This week Mike joins me to talk about how to signal for survival. 

 

 

 

 
 
 

Topics

 
 
  • Threes
  • SOS
  • Fire
  • Smoke At Day
  • Huge Fire At night
  • Audible
  • Guns
  • Whistle
  • Radio/ phone
  • Visible Signals
  • Mirror
  • Flashlight
  • Orange Cloth
  • Lasers
  • Debris
          
 
 

SOS signal

SOS (Save Our Souls) is the best known international distress signal. Everyone should be familiar with SOS. The SOS signal can be transmitted by any method, visual or audio. The code for SOS is 3 short, 3 long and 3 short signals. Pause. Repeat the signal.
 

The following will be recognized by rescue teams.

SOS: Need help
K : Tell me which direction to go
I : Serious injuries, need a doctor
II : Need medical supplies
X : Unable to proceed
F : Need food and water
<— : Traveling in this direction (in the direction the arrow is pointed)
L : need fuel
LL : all is well
N : no
Y : yes
?? : not understood

Once your message has been seen and understood a pilot will rock the plane’s wings from side to side or flash a green light.

If a pilot makes a right-hand circle or flashes a red light your message has been seen but not understood. The most important thing is that it has been seen.

This week I talk about why gun control doesn’t work. 

In the wake of the Vegas shooting gun control is being talked about again.  Let’s define gun control real fast. 

 
 
 

Gun control (or firearms regulation)[1][2] is the set of laws or policies that regulate the manufacture, sale, transfer, possession, modification, or use of firearms by civilians.

Most countries have a restrictive firearm guiding policy, with only a few legislations being categorized as permissive.[3] Jurisdictions that regulate access to firearms typically restrict access to only certain categories of firearms and then to restrict the categories of persons who will be granted a firearms license to have access to a firearm.

 
And Let’s see what the Second Amendment has to say about it.
 
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
 
 
I go into several of the reason why gun control doesn’t work. Unless you have magical powers to make all the guns vanish and gun powder no longer work. 
 
 

Topics

  • What is Gun Control
  • The Vegas shooting 
  • No Tragedy Wasted
  • Fear and Ignorance
  • The NRA Sold You Out
  • The Second Amendment
  • The second amendment is already too weak
  • Failed Gun Control
  • Gun control won’t work anyway
  • We need Evil Control

What Was The Damage Caused By Hurricane Irma Infographic

 

This week I have an infographic on what was the damage caused by Hurricane Irma. I had no idea how bad the damage was in some areas. 

After Irma hit I didn’t really hear much more about it. 

It seemed that the predicted damage was less but I had no real way to gauge that. 

With this infographic from Hunting Mark I have a much more clear picture of the damage done.

This week I talk about the timeline of a collapse. What you can expect to see during a collapse. 

I try to be as generic about the type of collapse as possible to make it as applicable as possible. 

Whatever causes the collapse in this podcast it begins with the lights going out. From there I talk about how bad things will get.

Dehydration will be a huge killer. Possible the number one reason for death. Even above violence. 

Having safe water to drink is not as tacticool as guns but will leave you just as dead. 

Proper sanitation and waste disposal is another big one. 

 

 

  • Timeline Of A Collapse 
  • Depends On the form the collapse takes
  • Power Goes Off 
  • Water and Natural Gas pumps stop
  • Mold Begins Growing
  • Trash Begins To Pile Up
  • Toilets Stop Flushing
  • Prices Skyrocket while money is still accepted
  • If the backup power doesn’t come on hospital patients die. 
  • Dehydration becomes a problem
  • Looting 
  • Many begin to run out of food
  • Disease runs rampant
  • Death Tolls Mount

Best Ways To Go Shopping For A New Gun

Best Ways To Go Shopping For A New Gun

I’m shopping for a new gun. Many of you are as well I’m sure. Most of us would have  more firearms if budget allowed.

Since I haven’t hit the lottery yet I have to find the best bang for my buck. 

In the past, I  bought guns in a variety ways. I don’t always just head down the gun shop. 

Since I’m getting serious about shopping for a new handgun I thought I would document it. 

With the growth of the internet, we have more ways than ever to buy firearms. But some online methods are being crippled by liberal censorship. 

The free market always answers censorship though. 

I came up with every way I could think to legally buy a gun.  You can always make your own homemade guns though. 

Gun Shop

This is the first stop for many when shopping for a new gun.  Gun shops will have the biggest selection of firearms locally. 

Be picky about your gun shop. Some are managed and staffed by very knowledgeable people. Others not so much. 

I would be wary of shopping at a gun shop if the staff is repeating bad information and gun myths. Unless they have the best deals. 

The prices you find at gun shops can vary greatly. Do some research first to see what the general going prices are. 

If you get to a shop and all the prices are high, see if they will haggle any. Many of the Mom and Pop gun shops have some haggle room in their prices. 

I bought my Ar15 from a very good semi-local gun shop. I went to several shops before buying. Some great deals were found but held out for what I really wanted. 

I was looking for a Stag Arms Left Handed model.  And with spare magazines, I paid under a grand. 

 

Pawn Shop

I have a special place in my heart for pawn shops when shopping for a new gun. 

I bought my very first gun and my first handgun from pawn shops. Both great deals to be sure. 

With pawn shop guns you are buying used and this can make a huge difference in price. 

The condition of the guns is usually great. The sad thing is that most gun owners are not gun shooters. There are many people that buy a gun for self-defense and never even fire it. 

Those are the people that pawn their guns when they need cash. 

Some pawn shops will haggle to some degree. The chain stores mostly have a percentage they are allowed to reduce the price. 

Also, most pawn shops have layaway programs. For many paying a bill is easier than saving money and buying outright. 

 

Gun Show

I’ve been to many gun shows and found great deals. But never on guns. I’ve bought a lot of survival gear at gun shows.

Here in Tennessee, you will often see guys walking around with guns for sale. Which here at least is perfectly legal. And can be good deals.

I went to a gun after the sandy hook shooting and that was an experience. 

The line was wrapped down the road. While standing in this huge line I saw an insane deal.

One guy had a custom built AR15 all tricked out. And with the tempory price surge was sure to get a pile of cash. 

Before he even made it in some guy offered him a pickup truck for the gun. He took the deal.

If you go to buy from a gun show have a budget and know the prices you should be paying. 

And going on the last day right before closing can snag good deals. People have to pack things up.

 

Private Sales

I have more experience with private sales. A lot more. So much so that my mom asked me once if I was an arms dealer. 

Private sales also know as the gun show loophole is a sale between citizens that are not dealers. 

In all except 19 states (at the time of writing), this is legal and does not need a background check. 

This has many advantages. There is little to no record of the sale. Many preppers like this in case the liberals ever get to confiscate firearms. 

There is no taxes on a private sale. I mean you are supposed to report any income to the IRS so they can tax it. That is up to you. 

I have sold and bought guns from Facebook. Before the great crackdown. There used to be a lot of gun trading groups. Someone would post showing what they have or what they want. You message them and meet up. 

In the wake of Facebook shutting down those groups, many dedicated websites popped up for trades. 

Some large ones, Like Armslist and Gun Listings. And local ones like Tennessee Gun Exchange.

Online Sales 

When shopping for a new gun you can find great deals online. 

Some companies have direct sales, Like Stag Arms. Others, Like Glock, require you to go through dealers. 

On some, you can avoid tax since it’s an online sale. Depending on your state and the site. 

This online gun store has great prices and a layaway program.  Which is a great way to buy a new gun. 

Buying online means you will have to have them ship to a local FFL. They will normally charge a small fee for this. 

 

Conclusion

In conclusion, the way I’ll be shopping for a new gun is a combination of few of these methods.

I’m  checking the online gun stores and trading sites. I want to see what the market is paying for handguns right now. 

I will jump on a great deal if I find one. But If I don’t I will check the pawn shops all around me. Firstly by calling to see what they have. 

If I find a great deal and they have layaway will go put it in right away. I will use the money I have saved for a deposit and pay it off as quickly as possible. 

I like the commitment of having it in layaway and having to pay on it. 

 

How Did you buy your last gun? What was it and did you get a good deal? Let me know in the comments!

Since I haven’t hit the lottery yet I have to find the best bang for my buck. 

In the past, I  bought guns in a variety ways. I don’t always just head down the gun shop. 

Since I’m getting serious about shopping for a new handgun I thought I would document it. 

With the growth of the internet, we have more ways than ever to buy firearms. But some online methods are being crippled by liberal censorship. 

The free market always answers censorship though. 

I came up with every way I could think to legally buy a gun.  You can always make your own homemade guns though. 

Gun Shop

This is the first stop for many when shopping for a new gun.  Gun shops will have the biggest selection of firearms locally. 

Be picky about your gun shop. Some are managed and staffed by very knowledgeable people. Others not so much. 

I would be wary of shopping at a gun shop if the staff is repeating bad information and gun myths. Unless they have the best deals. 

The prices you find at gun shops can vary greatly. Do some research first to see what the general going prices are. 

If you get to a shop and all the prices are high, see if they will haggle any. Many of the Mom and Pop gun shops have some haggle room in their prices. 

I bought my Ar15 from a very good semi-local gun shop. I went to several shops before buying. Some great deals were found but held out for what I really wanted. 

I was looking for a Stag Arms Left Handed model.  And with spare magazines, I paid under a grand. 

 

Pawn Shop

I have a special place in my heart for pawn shops when shopping for a new gun. 

I bought my very first gun and my first handgun from pawn shops. Both great deals to be sure. 

With pawn shop guns you are buying used and this can make a huge difference in price. 

The condition of the guns is usually great. The sad thing is that most gun owners are not gun shooters. There are many people that buy a gun for self-defense and never even fire it. 

Those are the people that pawn their guns when they need cash. 

Some pawn shops will haggle to some degree. The chain stores mostly have a percentage they are allowed to reduce the price. 

Also, most pawn shops have layaway programs. For many paying a bill is easier than saving money and buying outright. 

 

Gun Show

I’ve been to many gun shows and found great deals. But never on guns. I’ve bought a lot of survival gear at gun shows.

Here in Tennessee, you will often see guys walking around with guns for sale. Which here at least is perfectly legal. And can be good deals.

I went to a gun after the sandy hook shooting and that was an experience. 

The line was wrapped down the road. While standing in this huge line I saw an insane deal.

One guy had a custom built AR15 all tricked out. And with the tempory price surge was sure to get a pile of cash. 

Before he even made it in some guy offered him a pickup truck for the gun. He took the deal.

If you go to buy from a gun show have a budget and know the prices you should be paying. 

And going on the last day right before closing can snag good deals. People have to pack things up.

 

Private Sales

I have more experience with private sales. A lot more. So much so that my mom asked me once if I was an arms dealer. 

Private sales also know as the gun show loophole is a sale between citizens that are not dealers. 

In all except 19 states (at the time of writing), this is legal and does not need a background check. 

This has many advantages. There is little to no record of the sale. Many preppers like this in case the liberals ever get to confiscate firearms. 

There is no taxes on a private sale. I mean you are supposed to report any income to the IRS so they can tax it. That is up to you. 

I have sold and bought guns from Facebook. Before the great crackdown. There used to be a lot of gun trading groups. Someone would post showing what they have or what they want. You message them and meet up. 

In the wake of Facebook shutting down those groups, many dedicated websites popped up for trades. 

Some large ones, Like Armslist and Gun Listings. And local ones like Tennessee Gun Exchange.

Online Sales 

When shopping for a new gun you can find great deals online. 

Some companies have direct sales, Like Stag Arms. Others, Like Glock, require you to go through dealers. 

On some, you can avoid tax since it’s an online sale. Depending on your state and the site. 

This online gun store has great prices and a layaway program.  Which is a great way to buy a new gun. 

Buying online means you will have to have them ship to a local FFL. They will normally charge a small fee for this. 

 

Conclusion

In conclusion, the way I’ll be shopping for a new gun is a combination of few of these methods.

I’m  checking the online gun stores and trading sites. I want to see what the market is paying for handguns right now. 

I will jump on a great deal if I find one. But If I don’t I will check the pawn shops all around me. Firstly by calling to see what they have. 

If I find a great deal and they have layaway will go put it in right away. I will use the money I have saved for a deposit and pay it off as quickly as possible. 

I like the commitment of having it in layaway and having to pay on it. 

 

How Did you buy your last gun? What was it and did you get a good deal? Let me know in the comments!

This show will teach you how to treat wounds for now. A kit that will be used all the time in you daily life.

How Training with Airsoft Guns Can Help You During Dooms Day

How Training with Airsoft Guns Can Help You During Dooms Day

 

Have you ever wondered how you’d do in a Dooms Day scenario? With various threats over our current way of living (nuclear wars, climate change, biological warfare, and more) it’s difficult to not think about grimmer days.

Are you prepared to bug out and keep safe in an SHTF situation? How about fighting your way towards safety? In every case, a Dooms Day scenario requires you using some sort of weapon to protect your belongings and your bodily integrity. 

As an airsoft passionate, I feel a lot more prepared now, when I know how to use weapons and how to react in a battle/fight situation. The years I spent on the airsoft field taught me valuable skills that easily apply to an emergency scenario, and I think it’s time more people know about this.

That’s why the main topic today will be the skills you learn as an airsoft player. Keep in mind, these skills may save your life someday, so pay attention!

 

You Learn a Lot about Guns

Most high-quality airsoft weapons are replicas of real-life weapons, and they feel amazing in your hands. The weight, the inner-workings, and the crisp sound of a cocked airsoft gun will make you want to try more.

The part I like is that you can work with any type of gun starting with pistols and ending with sniper rifles or shotguns. The airsoft world is completely open and teaches us about guns in a safe environment (as long as you follow the rules regarding protective gear). This way, when the time comes, and you’ll have to fight for your life, you’ll know how to handle yourself around a real weapon.

If you want to learn more about realistic airsoft guns, check out Goog Gun – they have lots of reviews on some of the most interesting BB guns.

 

It’s all about Team Work

When you’re fighting for your life, it’s important to stick together with people you know. Team work is more important than ever, and you need to know how to integrate fast. If not, you’ll be left behind!

On the field, you learn to work with the team regardless of your position (close quarters combat or sniper). In any battle scenario, you depend on your teammates, and they depend on you. In time, you learn to function like one organism.

Even more, airsoft teaches about honesty and honor (when a player is responsible for admitting to being hit), and these are traits that build a strong character.

 

You Learn to Persevere in Reaching your Goals

I started young, and it took me a while to learn about reaching goals and being true to myself. Airsoft is not an easy activity – it will try your physical and mental power, and it will put you down if you don’t know how to get back up.

However, in an emergency scenario, you don’t have the option to quit and return to your normal life. You have to persevere in staying alive and safe regardless of the conditions around. But it will be a lot easier if you’re already used to doing this.

 

Keeps you fit and Ready for Action

Regardless of location (indoors or outdoors), airsoft keeps you active, and this is a good thing for your general level of fitness. It also helps you develop your observation senses (sight and hearing) and teaches you about taking fast decisions in life-or-death situations.   

All these skills are amazing in a real Dooms Day scenario when you have to rely on your ability to think fast and overcome the enemy. I also recommend trying close quarters combat – it is a great way to learn how to face your enemy in a physical confrontation and how to win regardless of their size and power.

 

In the end

As you can see, airsoft is not just a silly game where kids and adults chase each other with BB guns. It’s a training ground, and even military and police forces all over the world use it as a safe method to train recruits.

Even more, it is a fun way to spend your free time as it helps with stress relief and teaches you skills that are useful in various situations (not just a Dooms Day scenario). However, if something bad happens and the world goes upside down, you will be prepared.

So, if you want to be prepared for any Dooms Day scenario, try joining a local team and test your battle skills on the field.

This week Mike and I talk about The Best First Aid Medicines You Need.

This first part in our First aid series we cover drugs in your first aid kits. 

Most of the first aid medicines talked about are for minor injuries. More day to day comfort than the collapse scenario. 

Medical care for the SHTF is beyond the scope of a level I and II first aid kit. 

Not to mention the technical skills required for advanced medical procedures. 

Also as a disclaimer, Mike and I are not medical professionals and this is not medical advice.

Towards the end of the episode, we discuss some stronger medicines to carry. And make a case for getting some fish antibiotics. 

 

Medicines Talked about

Loperamide

Equate Extra Strength Headache Relief

Acetaminophen 

Pain Relief

Allergy Pills

 

Tiny Ziplock Bags

Heavy Duty Ziplock Bags

This week I talk about fuels to store for survival.  With the terrible hurricane and floods in Texas gas has gone up in price and shortages are occurring. 

The reasons to store fuel are many. Two of my favorite are saving time and money. 

Before Hurricane Harvey gas here was $1.90. A very affordable price after the heights we saw a few years back. 

A week later and prices are close to $3. If you had stored gas before the disaster you would have saved a good bit of money. 

That’s only one type of fuel I talk about in today’s episode. 

 

 

 

 

Topics

  • Gas
  • Propane
  • Kerosene
  • Wood
  • Charcoal/Coal
  • Others/ butane/lamp oil/ Camp stove fuel

  • In many disasters, fuel becomes more expensive and hard to get
  • Fuel storage saves time and money.
  • Getting good containers
  • Store fuel away from your house
  • Fuel Stabilizers PRI For long term. Stabil is cheaper for short term
  • Rotate gas

Propane

  • Doesn’t degrade.
  • Can be stored in massive amounts.
  • Is relatively cheap.
  • Propane tanks are often left when people move.

 

Kerosene

  • Kerosene is versatile.
  • Kerosene is very dense in energy and holds almost 50% more energy than propane.
  • Heaters put out a lot of heat.
  • fuel can be pricey.

 

Wood

  • Firewood has been used for thousands of years.
  • Hardwoods burn better than softwoods.
  • The best burns come from seasoned wood. 6mos to a year.
  • Not all burning methods produce the same heat.

This week we talk about lessons Learned From The Venezuela Crisis.

When I heard about the turmoil going on in Venezuela I had to look further into it. 

For many of the citizens there, it is an actual case of the shit hitting the fan with the Venezuela crisis. 

After years of socialism, the country is collapsing. 

People are resorting to eating out of trash bags. 

They have the highest murder rate in Latin America and the citizens are disarmed.

And like any failing Government, they think more legislature will fix the problem. 

 

Topics

  • Hugo Chávez President of Venezuela from 1999 to 2013.
  • Nicolás Maduro President of Venezuela since assuming office in 2013.
  • Social Programs.
  • Inflation.
  • Price Controls.
  • Shortages.
  • Economic Recession in 2014.
  • Housing issues.
  • Unemployment January 2016 the unemployment rate closed at 18.1 percent.
  • Crime and Murders.
  • Immigration .
  • Disarmament.

This week I am joined by my co host Couch Potato Mike again. 

We have a fun rant about the world being ruined by feminist and SJW. 

I have been getting more and more angry at the feminist and Social justice warrior agenda being shoved down my throat in media. 

Every new movie and TV is more propaganda. Anything that doesnt fit the narrative is killed. 

Neither race nor gender means anything in the casting of characters. 

Men are mostly portrayed as idiots. 

 

Topics

  • Feminism and SJW’s
  • Changing the Language. Pronouns, Removing Masculine words.
  • Equality doesn’t mean the removal of rights from others.
  • Free Speach unless you disagree
  • What do marches ever accomplish?
  • Rights Don’t Mean Free Shit.
  • The Equal pay BS.
  • Forced Inclusion
  • Rape is a definitive action.
  • Let’s kill Shamming.

This week I tackle Listener Questions.  

I have questions on dealing with the community during a SHTF. 

What are some non-prepper skills to have during a collapse? 

And much more. 

 

 

Topics

  • Matt From OK Beauty products during the SHTF and survival uses.
  • The SHTF and dealing with the community.
  • Non-Prepper Skills that will be handy
  • Whats essential uses for electricity.
  • Matt From OK Blood Sucking Family Lawyers During the SHTF

 

Beauty Products that have survival uses and homemade versions

Deodorant helps prevent blisters when breaking in new shoes
Lip balm helps heal small shaving nicks.
Chap Stick and lip gloss can be used as fire starter.
Oil based lube is the best fire starter.

You can brush your teeth with baking soda to remove stains and whiten the enamel. Moisten your toothbrush and dip it in baking soda.

You can also make a basic shampoo out of one cup of water and one tablespoon of baking soda. Put in a sealed container

To make an excellent detangler and conditioner, mix together one cup of water and one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Put in a sealed container (such as an empty conditioner bottle) and shake vigorously before using.

Mix ¼ cup baking soda with ¼ cup cornstarch (or arrowroot powder). Slowly add five to six tablespoons of coconut oil to the mixture, stirring with a spoon until it reaches your desired consistency and texture. You can refill your old deodorant dispenser with this, although you will need to ensure it is kept in a cool location to prevent the coconut oil from liquefying.

A simple and long-lasting eyeliner can be made from activated charcoal – the substance used to filter water and soothe stomach aches. If the charcoal is encapsulated, empty the capsule onto a small plate. Otherwise, pour out a small amount onto the plate. Dip the tip of a narrow makeup brush into water, then swirl the moistened brush through the charcoal. Apply as you would any other eyeliner.
To make a clear lip-gloss, mix one teaspoon of aloe vera gel (slice open the leaves of an aloe vera plant and scrape out the gel), half a teaspoon of coconut oil, and 1/8 teaspoon of vitamin E oil. Add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil. Mix until smooth, and then pour into a lidded container.

This week I talk about the Lessons From Near Human Extinction Events. Science Has found evidence that at least five times in the past humans faced near extinction events. 

Many times we have stood on the brink of extinction only to come back stronger. 

 

 

1.2 Million Years Ago: Humanity Before We Were Exclusively Homo Sapiens

Scientists have calculated that for a period lasting one million years and beginning 1.2 million years ago, at a time when our ancestors were spreading through Africa, Europe, and Asia, there were probably between 18,500 to 26,000

 

150,000 Years Ago: Homo Sapiens and the Big Chill

The era is officially called Marine Isotope Stage 6 (because we know of its existence in part by analyzing oxygen isotopes from deep sea sediment samples), and informally called a “glacial stage,” but it was likely more of an “ice desert” stage. Deserts expanded as well as glaciers, and much of the world was cold and dry.

The human population shrank down to only 600 people.

70,000 Years Ago: The Toba Explosion

 

Roughly 70,000 years ago, give or take a few thousand years, an enormous eruption occurred in what is now Sumatra, leaving behind Lake Toba The eruption coincides with a population bottleneck that is often cited as the reason for the relatively low genetic diversity across Homo sapiens sapiens. Research suggests as few as 2,000 humans were left alive by the eruption and its aftereffects.

12,900 comet and flood

Roughly 12,900 years ago, massive global cooling kicked in abruptly, along with the end of the line for some 35 different mammal species, including the mammoth, as well as the so-called Clovis culture of prehistoric North Americans. Various theories have been proposed for the die-off, ranging from abrupt climate change to overhunting once humans were let loose on the wilds of North America. But now nanodiamonds found in the sediments from this time period point to an alternative: a massive explosion or explosions by a fragmentary comet, similar to but even larger than the Tunguska event of 1908 in Siberia.

Paired with the fact that this layer occurs directly before the extinction of at least 35 genera of large mammals, including mammoths, it is strong circumstantial evidence for a cosmic event.

670 years ago The plague

October 1347 when 12 Genoese trading ships docked at the Sicilian port of Messina after a long journey through the Black Sea. Most of the sailors aboard the ships were dead, and those who were still alive were gravely ill. They were overcome with fever, unable to keep food down and delirious from pain. Strangest of all, they were covered in mysterious black boils that oozed blood and pus and gave their illness its name: 

Topics

  • 1.2 Million Years Ago: Humanity Before We Were Exclusively Homo Sapiens
  • 150,000 Years Ago: Homo Sapiens and the Big Chill
  • 70,000 Years Ago: The Toba Explosion
  • 12,900 comet and flood
  • 670 years ago The plague
  • Can’t prep for every disaster.
  • The same things we do still work
  • Learning skills and preserving knowledge
  • Stock up on lifetime items, not junk

This week I share a few ways to Avoid paying taxes. 

I don’t just mean the IRS taxes but several of the taxes that burden us daily. 

I talk about brewing your own beer to avoid the sin tax placed on alcohol and tobacco.

If you are a “farm” you can do lots of tax write-offs. Feed, vet trips etc.
Business write-offs. Lots of things can be written off as business expenses. This is a huge topic and would need an expert.

I begin the episode talking about how growing plants from seeds you have saved cuts two taxes. 

You are not paying a tax on buying more seeds. And Secondly, you are not paying sales tax on buying the food you would have had to buy. 

The same applies to livestock and chickens especially. If you go to the CO-Op and buy chicks you pay a tax.  But you never pay tax on the eggs they lay. 

What ways do you have to avoid paying taxes? Let Me know in the comments Below!

Home Brewing Episode 1

Topics

  • Save seeds from Plants you grow
  • Brew Your own beer, grow tobacco
  • Make your own gas/ diesel
  • Get chickens for eggs
  • Raise your own meat
  • Don’t buy new. Buy from Yardsales and flea markets and online where taxes aren’t collected.
  • Barter when you can. 
  • Reduce your income so low you’re not taxed.

This week I have an episode all about How to preserve fruits and vegetables.  The last episode was all about How to preserve meat. 

Many of the same techniques work for both. You really need to find the method that works well for which item. 

Canning works great for meat to make a stew with but will turn some softer veggies into mush. 

Some methods of preservation work better than others and some are easier. 

Free dried foods will last the longest. But Freeze drying at home is all but impossible unless you have 30k to spend. 

In this case, I say buying freeze dried foods is best not trying to make a DIY rig at home.

Fermentation works great and can have added benefits for both gut health and to fight off scurvy. 

With ferments like sauerkraut without canning, you can expect it to last up to 6 months. With wines and distilled alcohol, it will last forever. 

Freezing is the quickest and easiest method available. While the grid is still up, take advantage of this method. If the grid fails you will need to consume the frozen goods or preserve them another way. 

 

Topics

  • Methods of preserving fruits and veggies
  • Canning/ Pressure Canning
  • Fermenting
  • Pickling
  • Freezing
  • Freeze dried
  • Drying
  • Salted
  • Cellaring
  • Jam and Jelly

This week Mike Joins be and we talk about how to prep for your pets.

Topics

  • Pets are not food 
     
  • If you have pets take responsibility for them
     
  • Pets don’t do well, eating people food
     
  • Store them a variety of long term foods cans and bagged food. 
     
  • Store the dry like any long term food. You can do mylar bags and 02 obsorbabsorber if you want.
     
  • I would prefer to store in metal trashcans in their original packaging.
     
  • Pets are good about foraging for food. and can often eat food we cant like spoiled meat. 
     
  • Cats are great getting their own food.
  • Cats can be used to keep rodents out of your preps

This week I rant about how the group Antifa are fascists themselves not Anarchists as they are being called. 

Being myself an anarchist politically I was pissed to find out these whiny statist babies are being referred to as Anarchists. 

Many don’t even understand what an anarchist is. To them, an anarchist is basically the same as a terrorist. This is simply not the truth. 

Anarchist feel that people should be free to govern themselves. To live without rulers. 

Antifa does not want a society without rulers. Only without ones that Republican. Antifa would not have a problem with Hilary Clinton or Obama in office for life. 

In this episode, I teach you what is Anarchy and why Antifa are fascists. 

Anarchy

an·ar·chy

ˈanərkē/

noun

a state of disorder due to absence or nonrecognition of authority.
absence of government and absolute freedom of the individual, regarded as a political ideal.

Word etymology
mid 16th century: via medieval Latin from Greek anarkhia, from anarkhos, from an- ‘without’ + arkhos ‘chief, ruler.’

 

Fascism

often capitalized :  a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition

2:  a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial controlearly instances of army fascism and brutality — J. W. Aldridge

 

Topics

  • What is anarchy? And what is it not?
  • What exactly is Fascism?
  • How does Antifa match up with the 14 points of fascism? 
  • Statism

This week Mike returns and we talk about what a collapse might look like. 

Neither of us sees zombie apocalypse happening. And a real collapse is much scarier in many ways. 

Many preppers think that a collapse will mean that the government will close doors and go away. 

This is as far from the truth as possible. The government in its death throws will become a totalitarian one. 

They will use all of its might and power against We The People. 

They might very well pull out of the most rural areas. While holding the cities in its grip. 

In the type of collapse we talk about in this episode there are two ways to live. 

You either work the system or don’t get caught breaking the laws. 

Outright rebellion will meet the full force of the united state’s Military. 

We go over some strategies for both on how to survive. And most likely you will have to do a little of both to make it by. 

We make it known that we have no tolerance for lone wolf dirtbags. The ones who say they plan to murder their neighbors and steal from them. They are not preppers and are the worst scum. 

Topics

  • Real Collapse vs Zombie      
  • Not the gov going away 
  • The gov getting worse
  • working withing the system
  • being sneaky sneaky
  • Inside animals, quail, insects
  • Wildcrafting, foraging
  • Bitcoins to hide money
  • Barter and pay cash

Don’t let it take you off guard, though. Be prepared to survive a job loss.

  • Two concerns,  money and food. 
  • Separate the essentials from the nice to haves
  • Rent, mortgage electricity are essential
  • Cut the non-essentials to the bone right away
  • Having food storage removes that worry.

Do you plan to go it solo for a disaster or go it in a group? Group Prepping vs Solo prepping is the topic this week. 
 
In this episode, we weigh the pro and cons on Group Prepping Vs Solo Prepping. Which is better for your situation.
 
We talk about what you have to do if you want to successfully go it alone in your prepping.

You need to be doctor, farmer, and soldier. 
 
If you are injured nothing gets done. 
 
You also don’t have to worry about who to trust.  How to divide supplies or what to punish. 
 
With a group, you can have trained people fill the roles they are accustomed to. 
 
Your Where there’s no doctor book can not compete with the experience of a real doctor. 
 
 

 

Topics

 
Solo Pros
 
No sharing 
You can trust yourself
Your area can sustain you longer
Power needs are less
Hiding is easier

Have more help in gathering resources, ie Farming, hunting
More to defend
More resources brought into
Social environment
 
 
Group Prepping Cons

The question of how to combat normalcy bias came up in a thread on the Survival Punks Group. Out of all the questions asked I wanted to tackle this one first.

Normalcy bias is defined by Wikipedia as:

“The normalcy bias, or normality bias, is a mental state people enter when facing a disaster. It causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster and its possible effects, because it causes people to have a *bias* to believe that things will always function the way things *normally* function.”

 

Basically, it’s putting your head in the sand. 

It can happen to yourself and those around you. 

In today’s episode, I talk about how to combat it both in yourself and those around you. 

Topics

  • Garys Promo
  • Sp 5 year anniversary 
  • What is Normalcy Bias
  • How To Combat Normalcy Bias
  • In Yourself
  • In others
  • How Do you live with others 
  • Consequences of not following the bias, pros, and cons
  • Focus on The solution, not the problem.
 
 
 People get adamant about what “I can’t do”, yet they are miserable in their own decisions. And the great praise we receive when we conform, buy a bigger house, buy a new car, enroll your jackass kids in every activity possible so you can appease your own “need” to work long hours and through them in daycare all day. That’s part of the reason I dig your vibe, the PUNK aspect, fuck the people who want to tell you what you need to be doing, or how you can’t do something.

This week I chat with Gary Collins about his new book Going Off The Grid (Amazon Link). 

Gary and I ramble a bit as we usually do. We talk about Why you would want to go off the grid. 

We dig into some troubles with finding a contractor. Some are great but many would rob their own mothers to make a buck.

Gary talks about why he hates tiny houses. And I get him to see my side of the argument and how it does work. 

The way to go is Travel trailer over a tiny house on wheels. Tiny houses are best when not on wheels. We both agree that custom fitting a shed into a tiny house is a fast and affordable method. 

Gary talks about his progress so far on building his going off grid project. 

We go off on a tangent about tools. We both love tools. And there are few ways to go about it. 

I talk about not having to own all the tools you need to build. Renting expensive tools is a viable option when building a home. 

Especially if you don’t have space to store them long term. 

Gary brings up the topic of buying new electric tools. When you buy new you have a warranty and a guarantee of quality. Buying used can be a crap shoot. 

I want to get Gary Back on to talk about much tougher questions about Going off the grid. 

  • Why did you choose to go off the grid
  • So you wrote the book on going off the grid
  • Tell us about your progress so far
  • Hardest part of the construction 
  • Tiny house hatred

Today we tackle a listener question. The question was about walking to freedom and why Tennessee is a great choice. 

Since Mike and I have lived in TN our whole lives we felt qualified to answer this question, 

We begin the show with some basics on what is walking to freedom or a strategic resolution. 

Many might not be familiar with the term. 

The united states have many oppressive states. California, Illinois, and New Jersey all spring to mind. These states tax their citizens to death and make legally owning firearms hard at best. 

For those living in these states, their is an option, though. A walk to freedom. Moving. 

And luckily there are several great states to choose from. 

We talk about how to pick a new state. How to determine what freedoms you care about and move to states that have them. 

The last half of the podcast is about Tennessee specifics. TN belongs on any list of free states. Hopefully, I’ll have a few more freedom loving neighbors after this podcast. 

Topics

 
  • Survivalpunk challenge Wild edible
  • David Hand crank charger 
  • Women money rant 
  • What is a walk to freedom?
  • Free states vs oppressive ones
  • What freedoms mean to you
  • Taxes
  • Gun laws
  • Marijuana law 
  • No state income tax
  • Kratom ban

Going Off The Grid By Gary Collins First Thoughts

 

 

This week I got my hands on my friend Gary Collings New book, Going Off The Grid. Unlike most of my u

Unlike most of my unboxing videos, I wasn’t sent this book. You always want to support your friends so I bought this copy as soon as It was available. 

Like many of us, Gary got the bug to live a simpler life. And luckily for us, he has documented the whole process. 

In Going Off The Grid: The How-To Book Of Simply Living and Happiness, he provides a step-by-step guide for how to find a private piece of land and build a self-sustaining home. 

This doesn’t come from research alone but from experience. Gary has been building an off-grid home in northeast Washington state. 

You can watch some of the trials and tribulations on his Youtube channel.

Learning from others troubles can save you time and money. And from honest upfront people. 

If you watch many of the DIY tv shows you will have an unrealistic view of the process. Building an off grid home takes a lot of time and effort.

The reward is worth it, though. 

So if you are thinking about living a simpler less hectic lifestyle this is the book for you. Pick it up now before you need the info in here. 

Are you off the Grid? Wanting To Be? Let me know about your plans in the comments!

This week we cover How To Keep Entertained During A Disaster. Listener Matt called in asking about how to stay entertained during a disaster. Especially for those of you with kids. 

Instead of telling Matt we covered this topic 100 podcasts ago we decided to tackle it again with fresh eyes. 

We break it down to bugging out and bugging in. With bugging in 

With bugging in you have the option of much bigger games and some powered options.  

When trying to stay entertained during a disaster, board games are your friends. Mike and I talk about a few of our favorites.  

We even bring up the cursed Monopoly. Which is either a love or a hate game. With me, it has become a hated game.

A game that I love to play is Settlers of Catan. Which is very fun and un monopoly like. Set up takes a bit but then gameplay is fun. 

Cam from the Facebook group suggested the game Pathfinder. It is similar to Dungeons & Dragons. Any of the games like that would be great during a disaster. 

 

 

 

Topics

  • Bugging In
  • Powered vs non-powered
  • Bigger games 
  • Favorite Board Games
  • RPG games (D&D, Pathfinder Cam suggestion) 
  • Card Games
  • Mental games
  • Buggin Out
  • Smaller games
  • Powered is hard if not impossible. 
  • Card games

This week Jeff from the lost skills podcast joins me to talk about skills. More specifically how to learn them fast. 

As per expected, we chase many rabbits and banter. 

We cover many techniques to quickly learn new skills. 

To begin with, we talk about setting skill-based goals for the year. And to make them smart goals. 

To be a smart goal it has to be timely, measurable and achievable.

Do not set a goal to become a master woodworker this week. You will fail. Miserable.

I like to set goals in quarterly intervals. So every three months. And to make them small and attainable. 

In my case since I do want to get into woodworking, I want to learn the dovetail joint this quarter. 

To measure my success I have to have a decent dovetail joint at the end of the quarter. 

We cover many ways to learn new skills quickly in this podcast. 

Shout Out to Kate for doing the opening this week. 

 

 
 

Topics

  • Setting skills based goals for the year
  • Time frame,  measurable 
  • Full immersion 
  • Books can help.
  • Talk to mentors
  • Take classes. 
  • Practice practice
  • Learn tips and tricks from outliers
  • Compete.

Mike returns to the podcast this week and we discuss  Bug Out Caches and resupply trips. 

Just to define a cache real fast.

cache
kaSH/
noun 
  1. 1.
    a collection of items of the same type stored in a hidden or inaccessible place.
    “an arms cache”
     
verb 
  1. 1.
    store away in hiding or for future use.
     

 

 

Now that you know what a cache is you can see why we would want a  Bug Out Caches. 

In our case as preppers having extra stores away from our main preps just makes sense. 

Most Bug Out Bags are built to work for 72 hours. What happens if you need more supplies?

With caches, you can even carry less weight initially. 

 

 

Topics

 
  • Caches
  • Resupply trips
  • Mail drops
  • Scavenging excursions
 
 

 Caches

 
  • Buried caches along all bug out routes. 
  • Staches at friends house and Vice versa
  • Use some geocaching techniques
 
 

Resupply trips

 
  • Have places marked on your bug out routes to resupply? Know which places have what. 
  • Know the lesser used locations
  • Mark the more dangerous places as ones to avoid. I.e A certain store gets robbed often. 
  • Have the numbers to be able to call ahead and check on availability. 
 
 

Mail drops

 
  • Like hiking the Appalachian train you can use mail drops in certain bug outs. 
  • If it’s a localized emergency. 
  • use mail drops to have things waiting for you. 
  • With amazon prime, you can have items delivered in two days or less.
  • Think last minute drops to a bol or hotel even. 
 

Scavenging excursions. 

 
  • Not just for when SHTF
  • Mark GPS locations of wild edibles along your bug out routes. 
  • Know game trails around your Bug Out Routes
  • You can cache hunting/ fishing and trapping items along the way. 
  • don’t rule out dumpster diving especially in urban areas. 
 
 

Mike Rant

Mike has a fun rant this week about feminist.

The Amazon item today is the Olight H1R Nova

This week we cover defensive driving. How to stay safe on the roads. 

I got this question in from a listener and knew it would be a great topic. 

I talk about the lesson my Uncle taught me when I was learning to drive. To treat all other drivers like idiots. 

That lesson has served me well over the years. And so far without any accidents. 

To implement the rule I imagine a bubble around my car and try to not let any cars in it.  I don’t tailgate nor allow myself to be tailgated. 

In generally don’t like vehicles on my sides either. 

I talked about using your situational awareness while driving. 

Just like you would know the exits when in a restaurant know your exits while driving. And I don’t mean interstate exits. 

I mean to say how you would avoid collisions, traffic jams etc. 

I go on to cover what to do if your being followed and chased. 

 

Topics

 

  • Treat other drivers like idiots.
  • Use your situational awareness when driving
  • Cell phones are a hindrance
  • Maintain proper distance
  • Look ahead and around
 

How to tell if you’re being followed

  • Make 4 left or right turns
  • Get off and back on the interstate 
 
 

What to do if you’re being chased. 

  • Call the police
  • Don’t stop and don’t go home
  • Escape
  • Drive to a busy public location
  • Drive to a police station
  • Disabled their car

H1R Nova Unboxing. The Best Headlamp Made Better!

H1R Nova Unboxing. The Best Headlamp Made Better!

Previously I have reviewed a few Olight lights and loved them all. Recently I got my hands on the Olight H1R the rechargeable version of the H1 Nova Headlamp

You can pick up one at the Oficial Olight Store, Ebay, Or Amazon.

All of the things that made me love the H1 Nova have been improved upon in the H1R. Notably the ability to recharge it. 

My only issue with the H1 Nova is that on the bright mode, of 500 lumens, it will use up batteries quickly. And CR123 batteries are not cheap easy to find. 

I have looked in my local big box stores several times over the past few months looking for CR123 batteries. They have been sold out every single time. 

I know I can order them from amazon. But In an emergency, I would like to be able to pick up some. 

With the H1R Nova, the battery issue has been alleviated. You can use a rechargeable CR123 and the built in charger to recharge. 

I really like that the charger is a USB cable with a magnetic cap that snaps onto the tail cap of the H1R. The cord can fit into any cell phone charger or car charger. 

And you could use an USB battery pack to charge it. 

I plan on buying spare rechargeable CR123 batteries and a backup charger. That way I can standardize to all rechargeable CR123s. 

The H1R Nova also features 100 more lumens over the H1 Nova. You get a blinding 600 lumens at the brightest output. 

You only get 3 minutes of the 600 lumens. After that, it tapers down to 180 for 80 minutes. 

On the lowest setting, you can run it for 6 days. 

And then you can just recharge it and go. No worrying about finding batteries.

Krav Maga Tactical Survival Unboxing

This week I had a mystery package to open. I usually know what I’m opening. This time I had forgotten about being sent a book on Krav Maga. 

Krav Maga is the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It has been tested and used around the globe for sixty years. 

I have taken a few martial arts over the years. Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai and have had an interest in Krav Maga for several years. 

From all my research it seems to be the best to quickly and safely end street fights. It was designed for that. 

It also seems that the learning curve is not as high. In some martial arts it takes a long time to be able to apply your skills. 

This book is filled with full-color photos to help explain the techniques. 

I can’t wait to start practicing with Couch Potato Mike. 

I do want to state that I do not believe you will be able to become a master with a book. But this is an excellent primer. Finding a qualified local instructor is definitely the way to go.

Zen Goats Homemade Soaps And Beard Oil Unboxing

Zen Goats Homemade Soaps And Beard Oil Unboxing

I hope everyone had a great holiday. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with my Serenity, Mike and seeing my mom. And getting gifts like This box from Zen Goats homemade soaps and beard oils. 

I love homemade soap. Being a bit of a crazy hippy, commercial soaps bother me. They are all full of chemicals.

You would think that I would make my own soap. But the last time I tried to make soap resulted in the loss of an eyebrow. 

So I leave it to my friends to make soap for me. 

I have been using the pine scented soap and Gambler beard oil for a few weeks now. 

The soap works great. It smells good and manly. So sissy smells here. 

Zen Goats soap does not leave my skin dry and itchy. Many commercial soaps leave me itching all day. 

The beard oil I’m still getting used to. I have never used a beard oil before and let my beard grow out some just to use it. 

The smell last all day. My girlfriend liked how good it smelled after working all night. I can’t say for sure that Zen Goats, beard oil made my beard softer or not. 

I have not remembered to use it daily which I’m sure helps.

If you are like me and want high-quality homemade soaps and don’t want to or can’t make them yourself try Zen Goats. 

You will support a friend of Survival Punk and a great family.

Homemade Guns A How To On Legally Making Firearms

Click here to view the original post.

Homemade Guns A How To On Legally Making Firearms

 

I’ve been watching a lot of youtube recently on homemade guns. One day I ended up on a video on accident of YouTuber Royal Nonesuch making a 50bmg

I kept watching his channel for two reasons. One, I keep expecting him to get hurt. He seriously takes no safety precautions. 

Secondly, that kid has some serious skills. He has come up with some pretty ingenious weapons. And he is much more entertaining than some all the other DIY gun YouTubers. 

It got me thinking about making my own homemade guns. And the legality of doing so. I had always assumed that zip guns were illegal to make and own. 

I decided to brush up on the subject to see what is legal and what isn’t. Happily, I can tell you that it is 100% legal to build homemade guns. 

 The rules you have to follow are pretty lenient. Basically, if you can own it you can build it. We will start off with all the legal mumbo jumbo before getting to the good stuff. 

Legality

Like many laws, it seems that the ones on homemade guns are all for stealing collecting tax. No, a license is not required to make a firearm solely for personal use. 

Nor are these homemade weapons required to be registered.

Homemade guns are legal under federal law, as long as the weapon does not violate any existing gun laws. And if you are legally able to own one. So felons who are not able to own a firearm can not make one.  Don’t believe me? Here’s a lawyer site for reference. 

Checking On the ATF’s Site to make sure I didn’t miss anything at the time of writing. It is prohibited by law for a person to assemble a non–sporting semiautomatic rifle or shotgun from 10 or more imported parts. Also,  firearms that cannot be detected by metal detectors or x–ray machines.

 In addition, the making of an NFA firearm requires a tax payment and advance approval by ATF. NFA weapons are also sometimes called class 3 weapons. 

What is the NFA and what are NFA weapons? NFA or the National Firearms Act is a Gun Control Act that was amended in 1968. The law is mostly another way to steal collect money.

NFA weapons are machine guns, sound suppressors (a.k.a. silencers), short barreled shotguns, short barreled rifles, destructive devices and “any other weapons”.  For more info on What NFA weapons are Vow Guns has some great info. 

Besides the NFA items the only other real prohibition to consider is in selling them. A license is required to manufacture firearms for sale or distribution. 

Also, There is barrel length to consider.  You must have an 18″ barrel with a 27″ overall length.  There has to be Rifling in the barrel if it’s pistol length. 

There are tutorials online on how to rifle a barrel. Or you can buy from Ebay. 

 

So once you make any firearm, whether from scratch or an 80 percent kit, you many not sell it. Legally. Without a license. 

 

 

Benefits

What are the benefits to building a homemade gun? There are a ton of benefits. Below are a few of the many reasons why you should make a homemade gun. 

  • Price
  • No Record
  • Building Skills
  • Knowledge
  • Fun

In many cases, these improvised weapons and home finished ones are much cheaper. Buying guns can get pretty expensive. I would love to own a few more but I’m broke.

By building your own guns you can save hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Maybe it’s just me but I want to shoot every caliber. This is an affordable way to play. 

By making a homemade gun you get around having any kind of record of you owning it. When buying a firearm from a retail store there are many records made. 

There will be store records retained, Background search info, bank statement etc. 

I read one prepper book where corrupt sheriffs used those records as a shopping list. 

Using your hands to create something is satisfying like nothing else. For many of us, our work is intangible. You go home at the end of the day with nothing to show for it. 

You build your maker skills every time you build. Just like a muscle when you lift heavy weights. You can only grow as a builder by building. 

Making homemade guns now when resources and laws are on your side will give you the knowledge you will need. In a collapse knowing that you can build improvised weapons makes you better off than not. 

Sure you may have your firearms in place but what about your community? 

I’m big on building community both now and during a collapse. Lone wolf survival is not practical. Yes, there are rare cases of it being done. Will you be the exception or a casualty? 

With homemade guns, you can arm your unarmed friends and neighbors for extremely cheap. Unless you bought cheap Mosin Nagants and AK’s before the prices went up this is the best option. 

 

Zip Guns

Homemade guns go by many names. Zip Guns is the first one I remember hearing. Wikipedia uses the catchall phrase of Improvised firearms. 

Liberals have started calling homemade and home finished guns Ghost guns. Which probably scares liberals by being vague and uninformed. 

For our purposes, let’s define a few things. A homemade gun is a firearm not made by a firearms manufacturer or gunsmith. They are typically constructed with existing materials repurposed.

The quality on homemade guns varies greatly. Some you see look like death traps and others are both functional and beautiful. 

The quality of your zip gun depends on your skills and the tools at your disposal. A master of his craft can make a great firearm with poor materials and a few tools. Like this guy that made an AK from a shovel

Or you can have no real skills but have fancy tools. You can go buy The Ghost Gunner and mill you own ar15 lowers. 

Many of the homemade guns can be built from hardware store items without fancy tools. A middle ground between dangerous death traps and works or art. 

I want functionality and reliance first. And I want it to be affordable. Also, I don’t want to go spend thousands of dollars for a gun that would cost a few hundred. 

 

 

Built From Scratch

The first method of building homemade guns is to build them from scratch. So you won’t be using off the shelf items or repurposing things. 

Building from scratch produces the best looking and functioning weapons. It is also the hardest method.

For this, you will need to have a significant amount of tools. And the expensive ones. Like milling machines, welders and metal lathes. 

With the right tools, you don’t even need a high skill level. If you have a CNC milling machine you can download the files to mill out an ar15  lower for example. 

I have even seen people making ar15 lowers from wood. And they can actually work. At least for a few shots anyway. 

YouTube has a few examples of homemade guns made from scratch. They are great to watch even if you can’t make them. 

 

80 Percent Lowers

Building homemade guns from 80% lowers is a lot easier than building from scratch. Even without having to use mills of any kind. 

An 80% lower is the lower part of a firearm, the part that has the serial number and requires an FFL to buy, only 80 percent finished. 

When you get one you will get the lower and a jig to be able to finish it. All the instructions I have seen, call for milling with a drill press.

Most of the videos I watched had people using Dremel tools and files. Although it takes a bit more work they worked just fine. 

I just did a quick search to try to compare prices. You can get an 80% lower for $54.99  and $79.99 for a stripped lower. So the savings are not great. 

In using an 80% lower you will also not need an FFL and that will save a few dollars. 

Best of all your weapon won’t have a serial number or be Federally registered at all. 

I got extremely excited when I found out that they are making 80% polymer lowers for Pistols. They are Glock clones that are homemade. 

Buying just the 80% lower is around $149. That is an amazing price I thought. I was all ready to buy one. Until I saw what the cost to complete it would be. 

You can buy the entire build kit here at Lone Wolf Tactical.  And it will only cost you $727. Only.  

I would personally buy a used Glock 19 from a person with cash in the $400~$500 range. 

 

Repurposed

The most popular, easiest and ugliest method of building homemade guns are repurposed. These are typically what are called zip guns. 

They are built from random junk. Zip guns will often look more likely to kill you than to hit anything. 

Building a zip gun requires little to no tools. The name comes from using zip ties to hold them together. And I do not have any faith that a will zip tie keep me safe. 

I have seen several well made repurposed homemade guns. Repurposing a cheap flare gun to shoot .22’s is one example I’ve seen. 

You can build a lot of homemade guns from the plumbing section of a hardware store. Black pipe makes a great unrifled barrel.  Like a shotgun. 

I found a few places with tutorials on how to build zip guns. Check out this Simple Zip gun here. And this site has a ton of plans. There are not pictures only ASCII code. 

Or You can turn to Youtube for videos on how to make them. 

 

Plans

For some reason, I never even thought about there being plans for homemade guns. I figured you had to follow tutorials and build pictures. Or even reverse engineer a photo of a finished gun. 

I came across both kits and plans while watching a Mark Serbu video on youtube. It was a video on his GB22 build. A gun the was designed to be simple and cheap to trade in at gun buybacks. 

At the end of the video, he said he is working on plans and kits to be released. Well, when the GB22 plans finally came out I bought them. 

I will be doing a build video and post on the GB22 when I get the plans. And when I figure out how to read them. 

I will admit that the plans to the GB22 confused me. They are more technical than I had expected. I kind of wanted to cut out paper, tape to metal and cut out. 

And maybe I’m reading them wrong.  Also, Mark released a video discussing them that helps a lot. 

A quick google search will turn up lots of homemade gun plans. Of varying quality. Like computer ASCII code pictures showing you how to build. 

The ones that cost a few bucks will, of course, be better. 

 

 

3D Printed

Another option to build homemade guns is to print them. This option will only grow over time. Right now 3d printers are in their infancy. 

At this time 3d printers are not that common. But they are getting there. I knew when I saw one at Lowes that it’s about to explode. 

To get one that can print a working gun will cost you a good bit. The ghost gunner requires a $250 deposit then  $1250 plus $100 shipping.

While you will most likely not find a 3d printer under $1,000 that will be able to print a firearm. And definitely none under $500. 

Once you have a printer you will need to find plans on the internet to print. And a quick google search should turn up the needed files. 

Finally, You will need to get a strong filament to use for printing guns. And it will get pretty expensive. 

So depending on the resolution of your printer you may spend hours with a file to clean up your weapon. 

The benefits of using a 3d printer to make homemade guns are that you don’t have to register it.  And It won’t have a serial number. 

And you will know how it works better than any weapon you didn’t make. If a part breaks you can fix or replace it. 

After building the first one it will become cheaper and faster to make additional ones. That you can not sale. 

One solution that might work is for a few friends to go in on buying a 3d printer to make it more affordable. Also, you can sell the printer after printing to recoup much of the cost. 

There are places online that will 3d print for you but I’m sure none will print guns. Especially without giving your info to the FEDs. 

 

Conclusion

In conclusion, I plan on building some homemade guns. Not so much for the unregistered aspect. Which I am a fan of. But for the knowledge and resiliency gained. 

Firearms are a must for a SHTF scenario. For defense and for hunting purposes. Since having a weapon is a must why not have the ability to make more?

Firearms are tools. And You need to use the right tool for the right job. Therefore you aren’t going to be hunting elk with a .22 long rifle. Just as you shouldn’t hunt squirrel with a .50 cal. 

If a gun breaks during a collapse can you replace it? What if you still have holes in your firearms preps when the SHTF? 

I didn’t mention it before now but please be safe. Normally I don’t talk about safety but in making homemade guns I will. 

I plan on not test firing in my hand until I’m sure it won’t explode. Use a string or something for initial testing. I love building as much as the rest of you but don’t want to loose a hand. 

Knowing how to make homemade guns is a big investment in your self-sufficiency. Since you will have the skills to build weapons for defense and hunting.

Haven Prepper Fiction Meets Fantasy Novel
Haven Prepper Fiction Meets Fantasy Novel

Haven Prepper Fiction Meets Fantasy Novel

 

A while back I got in Haven by  J.D.G. Perldeiner from prepper Press. I was pretty excited to read Haven from the description.

Haven is set 198  years after a cataclysm that wipes out most of mankind. The people that are left live a very primitive life.  

All around them is evidence of their ancestor’s great achievements. Cars that will never again run. Light bulbs that remain dark. And medicines that they have no idea how they work. 

The Monks of Haven treasure knowledge above all. They fight to keep their library from falling into the wrong hands. 

Tiber the Novice is sent on a quest with others from Haven to a nearby Duke. They are going to ask for help in an upcoming attack by the Grotons. 

The Good 

I love fantasy novels. My favorite genre of books is fantasy. If you look at the bookshelf behind me in my YouTube videos then you will see my collection. 

Haven attracted me because it seemed to fit my favorite format. A young person going on a quest. A coming of age story with swords. 

Young Novice Tiber fits the bill in Haven. You follow his journey to help save his home. 

I love the world the J.D.G Perldeiner has created in Haven. In many ways, it reminds me of Europe after the fall of Rome. 

Rome brought technologies throughout Europe that broke and sat unworking. Imagine an English peasant looking at a thousand-year-old aqueduct with no idea how it was built. 

 

The Bad

For this book, the author decided to show how language changed in almost 200 years. 

If you tried to have a conversation with someone from 1816 you would have some real issues. I just looked up American slang words from the 1800’s. And I can tell you bottom fact language changes. 

The book does have a glossary in the beginning. I skimmed this quickly. Mostly I skipped it. I wanted to get into reading the book. 

That was a mistake. 

The Haven made up words are so dense that it destroyed my concentration. Even without the glossary, I could cogit (Haven word for understanding) most the words. 

But when it got so thick with words my reading speed ground to a halt. 

I would go from enjoying the book to confused and annoyed. 

Conclusion

In conclusion, I have to say Haven is not a book for everyone. But It might be for you. 

Unlike many prepper books you are not beaten over the head with info. In fact, you have to look for survival tips in this book. There are some.  

For me, the language killed this book for me. I would get into it for a while then hit a chunk of Haven made up words. This ruined the experience for me every time. 

If you enjoy a good quest story, languages, and prepper fiction then this book is for you. 

If you are not going to really read the glossary, in the beginning, you will not enjoy This book.

Flower Pot Heaters Don’t Work Stop Sharing Them Rant

Flower Pot Heaters Don’t Work Stop Sharing Them Rant

Flower Pot Heaters Don’t Work. In case you were thinking about making  one. 

Don’t!

In the past, I tried to make a clay pot heater. With Tea lights and metal bolts and all that. I tried all the variations I could find on the internet and come up. 

I ran the heater an entire day in a tiny bathroom. Adding new tea lights whenever they went out. 

It did not make a measurable effect on the temperature nor warm me up on the toilette. 

So once again flower pot heaters don’t work. For heating at least. Unless you want to hold your hands about three inches away. Then yes they will warm your hands. 

What brought up this rant video is a guest post on a blog I was reading. And left a comment on. 

It was yet another post on how and why you would want to build one. 

Face Palm…

The only image was one that has circulated around the web. So the writer has no idea what he is actually talking about. 

I’m so sick of this being spread around. Flower pot heaters do not work. You can not heat your home, no matter how tiny, with a clay pot heater. 

Even worse is when this bad info is shared by people I respect. 

I never ask for likes or shares of my videos but please share this one. With your help maybe we can finally end this retarded clay pot heater crap.

How Do We Lose Body Heat Conduction, Convection, And Radiation

How Do We Lose Body Heat Conduction, Convection, And Radiation
How Do We Lose Body Heat Conduction, Convection, And Radiation

 

How Do We Lose Body Heat Conduction, Convection, And Radiation

Want to know how you lose body heat?

Heat is transferred by three ways. Conduction, Convection, And Radiation. 

Right Now As I write this I’m losing body heat on my backside from Convection. Sitting in my hammock without a pad under me. 

My legs are being warmed by conduction using an electric blanket. 

And lastly, my tiny house is usually warmed by radiant heat provided by my Buddy Burner heater. 

Just as how Conduction, Convection, And Radiation are the methods by which we lose body heat they are also how we gain warmth. 

Let’s break down each of the three heat transfer mechanisms in depth. 

Conduction

 

Conduction is the transfer of heat between substances that are in direct contact with each other.

Whenever two things come into contact with each other the one with the higher temperature will begin to transfer that heat to the colder one. 

You lose body heat in air temperatures lower than 68°F .

The body loses about 2% of its heat through air conduction. However, you will lose body heat much faster in water. 

If you have ever tried to sleep on the ground without a sleeping pad you will know this. The parts of your body making contact with the ground begin to feel cold. 

To prevent this you need a sleeping pad or improvised ground cover. You can make a big pile of leaves sleep on. 

Basically, you want to have a buffer between you and a cold surface so you don’t lose body heat through conduction. 

Convection 

Convection is when a fluid, such as air or a liquid, is heated and then travels away from the source, it carries the thermal energy along. 

The next way we  lose body is called convection. The definition of convection is weird but I’ll explain it better. 

When you boil water you will notice steam rising off it. The steam is carrying away heat as it rises. The same occurs when you step out of a really hot shower and see steam rising off yourself. 

That’s a visual example but it is happening even if you can’t see it.

The body loses 10% to 15% of its heat through convection.

Convection causes movement as well that will steal heat. Like wind blowing on you. Or the air movement under your hammock. 

To prevent heat loss through convection you want to minimize air flow. 

Putting a barrier to prevent the wind from blowing across you will help slow down heat loss from convection. 

Radiation

Thermal radiation generates from the emission of electromagnetic waves. These waves carry the energy away from the emitting object.

The last way we lose body heat is through radiation. Just like the buddy burner, a wood stove or the sun.

Radiation does not need to come into contact with a solid or have movement. It simply projects out the heat. 

Think of it this way. Turn on the eye of your stove top. You see it turn red and know it’s hot. Now hold your hand above it. With no air blowing from it to you and without touching it you can feel it’s heat. 

In air temperatures below 68°F, you will radiate your body heat out. Just like a wood stove , you are projecting your heat.

This means it is leaving your body. And the body loses 65% of its heat through radiation.

 

Hence why we want to have proper clothing to trap that heat in. The more body heat your clothes can retain the warmer you will be. 

There are nuances though to clothing keeping you warm. You will want clothing that allows moisture to move away from your skin. And to prevent air flow from getting to your skin. 

In the winter for cotton under layers will get damp from sweat and then rapidly cool you down. 

Conclusion

Now you know how you lose body heat. You understand how heat is transferred by convection, conduction, and radiation. 

And I left out the complicated science. No need to know that when matter is heated molecules move faster. And when faster-moving molecules come into contact with slower ones they transfer their kinetic energy to them thus speeding up the slower moving particles while itself slowing down. AKA conduction. 

Understanding the mechanics behind how we lose body heat also teaches how to retain it. 

Knowing how it is lost and gained will help you to stay warm and alive in a survival situation.

Where To Start A Prepping Resource List To Help You

Click here to view the original post.
Where To Start A Prepping Resource List To Help You
Where To Start A Prepping Resource List To Help You

Where To Start

I had a member of the Survival Punks Facebook group ask for a resource list. She had to move after a house fire and lost her preps. This will be a good post for those asking where to start. 

Remembering where all the survival resources online are located is hard without them being bookmarked. And a google search will often turn up fly by night scam jobs. 

The resources listed on this post are ones I have used and personally recommend. So no worries about being ripped off. 

 

Deep Pantry

I would be remiss in any food storage talk without mentioning having a deep pantry. Anyone who has been prepping for a while knows this. But for those wanting to know where to start this is it. 

A deep pantry is made by copy canning.  To do copy canning you buy an extra nonpreishable item. 

So you go to the store and go through 1 bag of coffee every 2 weeks. Now you buy two bags. Next time you do the same. Soon you have several extra bags of coffee. 

Then you move on to another item. And do the same. In six months you’ll have built up a respectable pantry. 

Local Long Term Storage

You can begin building up your long term storage locally. And no I don’t mean to stock up on mountain house camping meals. 

Most grocery stores carry a 25# bag of rice for under $20. Usually under $15. 

Try to look around for a bulk store. In Nashville, we have the cash N Carry Store. They are bulk and restaurant supply store. 

You can get great deals on huge packages. I used to get 50# bags of rice from them. 

You can also get big bags of dried beans locally as well. 

Putting rice and beans in five-gallon buckets and seal them. They will last longer than you that way. 

Look for a local Mormon LDS Cannery. At them, you can buy a lot of long terms storage foods and can them there. 

Online Long Term Storage

I’ll list a few of the places I trust to get long term storage foods online. There are more. You can look around but I trust and use these ones. 

With Thirvelife they have a Q program that will send you things you pick monthly. I really like the convenience of the Q program 

Emergency Essentials

Thrive Life

Preparewise

Wise Food Co.

Valley Food Storage

 

Medical Supplies And Kits

I have always liked to build my medical kits myself and from local items. I did a big post on building your own first aid kits Here Level 1 First Aid Kit and Here Level II Medical Kit

Almost all the items in those kits are locally sourced. 

For hard to find items you can check the following. 

Red Flare Kits

Skinny Medic 

Also, Doctor Bones And Nurse Amy have kits and the best Survival Medicine handbook on the market. 

Amazon and Ebay are both good sources for medical equipment too. 

 

Conclusion

I hope that this helps with Where To start prepping at. Mike and I have covered this topic in many episodes of the Survival Punk Survival podcast.

No, it’s not a complete guide to everything there is to know about prepping. But it’s a good start. And Like everything, You can add to this. Comment below where you get your preps.

Bug Out Bag Documents: Best Guide On How To Make Them

Click here to view the original post.
Bug Out Bag Documents: Best Guide On How To Make Them
Bug Out Bag Documents: Best Guide On How To Make Them

Bug Out Bag Documents

Today we’re going to talk all about bug out bag documents. It is maybe the most neglected prep but one of the easiest and most important. 

Bug out bag documents are all the important documents you will need in a disaster stored in a binder usually ready to go. 

I’m talking about things like copies of your driver’s license, bank account numbers, and phone numbers to your local utilities. 

In the event that you need to bug out, you do not want to be wasting time trying to find these documents. And you definitely do not want to be without them. 

After hurricane Katrina, many were left without ID’s, insurance cards or banking access. That caused some major headaches. People could not access their bank accounts without their debit cards or Id’s. 

 

With these bug out documents, you will have these with you. You my prepper friend do have your bug out documents ready right?

If the answer is no I’ll help get you squared away. I am by no means perfect. My own documents need to be updated. So this is a good time to go through what needs to be done.

 

 

Personal Identification

Personal identification is I believe the most important bug out document you can have. In many cases being able to prove who you are is invaluable. 

There are several ways to carry backup identification. Some will work better for different uses. You won’t be buying beer with a picture of your driver’s license on your phone for example. 

For many of the official documents, like a license, I prefer to have an official duplicate. Most places will not accept a photocopy of an id. Although there’s no reason to not also have photocopies. 

I put birth certificate first on the list for a specific reason. It is the one id used to get all the others. 

Years ago when I read the anarchist cookbook I remember the part about getting a false Identity. It went like this. Get the death certificate of someone about the same age as you that died at birth. Use the death certificate to obtain their birth certificate. Take the birth certificate to get a social security card. Once you have the Social security card and Bith certificate go get a photo ID. 

So with the actual copies in your Bug Out Bag documents, you will need to be careful they are not stolen. They would be an identity thief’s wet dream. 

  • Birth Certificate
  • Social Security Card
  • Drivers License
  • Concealed Carry Permit
  • Passport
  • Mail From A Bill
  • High School, College, GED or any other diploma or certifications. 
  • Titles to your car and home

 

Financial Info

In the event of a disaster, you are going to want to be able to access your financial institutes. We’ve already covered the ID part of the equation. 

The easiest way to do this would be to have spare debit/ credit cards. But I can’t bring myself to tell you to keep spare debit cards in your car. Unless you have the best identity theft protection on those cards. Even then it’s not a great idea. 

You should keep the bank account numbers, routing info, and phone numbers to the branches. There are a million different ways to encode the numbers to keep them from being stolen. The easiest is to increase or decrease all the numbers by one. 

You can keep the debit card numbers, pin, expiration dates and security code. This can be used in online shopping, like ordering a hotel room online. Also, you might need that info to cancel a card. 

Without a debit card, you can still go into a bank with your ID and banking account numbers and withdraw money. 

I added having the info on local coin shops on my Bug Out Bag documents list. I’ve never seen this one another site and don’t know why. In a disaster, there are a few reasons to know where your local coin shops are. 

In a disaster, you might want to convert your precious metals into cash. During my move to my tiny house, I had a cash shortage and had to sell some coins to cover the move. I would rather hold onto coins for the long term but in an emergency, you can sell them.

In a situation where you don’t want federal currency, you can go convert it to precious metals. If the economy was tanking or we went into hyperinflation this would be necessary. 

  • Paystubs
  • Income Tax Return
  • Contact Info For Banks
  • Info For Any Debt you have
  • Info On Local Coin Shops

Important Phone Numbers

On this bug out bag documents we’ve covered a lot of phone numbers already but let’s add a few more. 

  • Friends and Family
  • Hospitals
  • Local Emergency Numbers
  • Your Work
  • Utilities
  • Hotels
  • Kids School
  • Insurance Providers
  • Legal Counsel

 

 

Bug Out Routes

I like to have three places to bug out to in an emergency. And three ways to get there.  

There are several ways to do this.  I like to use Google maps.  

Map the directions, choose show satellite view and print .  You can even use a highlighter to mark the route.  

Have  the directions in written form too. 

Put the maps in plastic sheets or have them laminated .  

Having maps of your nearby cities and state are nice to have.  

I  usually grab maps of the nearby states if I pass through them.  

Checklist Of Things To Do In A Bug Out

One of the things I add to my bug out bag documents is a checklist of things to do and remember.  

Mike and I did an entire podcast on bug out checklists. worth a listen to go deep on the subject.  

The items on the checklist are time sensitive .  If the pyroplastic flow from a volcano is heading your way forget the checklist and go.  

If you have more time you can spend more time going over the checklist .  

Some of the things to go on there are cutting off the gas to your home.  

If you’re not coming back ever grabbing any food you can eat from your refrigerator is worth it.  

If you do plan on coming back and power is out you will want to empty your fridge. 

Anything left will become a toxic mess. 

If your anything like me you always forget something when leaving for a trip. 

Having a checklist will help ensure you don’t bug out and forget something vital to your survival.  

Condensed Survival Info

Having  condensed survival info is great to have. Yes, You can carry small survival books like the SAS Pocket survival guide

Even better is to type out important info yourself on a page or two. Things like how drops of bleach to sanitize water for drinking. 

A few wild edibles in your area can be included with pictures. 

Basically some of the easily forgotten bits of info you might need. 

Digital Version

I have been talking about making a physical binder for your bug out bag documents. Another way to have them is on an encrypted thumb drive. 

A few years ago I showed you how to build your own to save a ton of money. Check out how to make an encrypted thumb drive. The thing looks bomb proof too. 

With digital copies, you can carry backups to your backups. 

Using Your Phone

 While writing this article I realized that a smartphone could easily replace all of the bug out bag documents. 

You can store all the contacts info in there. As well as multiple ways to actually contact them. When the  phone lines  are down  you can get a text or a Facebook msg through. 

You can take high definition pictures and scans of your id and documents. 

You can map your bug out routes and download them to be available offline. 

With downloaded pdf and kindle books, you can have all the survival knowledge available. 

Best of all you always have your phone with you everywhere you go. Once locked thieves can’t get your info. 

I would still recommend having physical copies but there is no reason to not have your smartphone be your bug out bag documents as well. 

Conclusion

Bug out bag documents are not the flashiest thing.  Documents are not cool. 

But they just might keep you alive.  

Having the right items in your Bug Out Bag documents is one the most important preps to have.  

And most of it can be put together for free.  So It just takes a little time on your side. 

I’ll be updating mine and showing it off in the survivalpunks group on facebook.  Go join the fun and show off your documents too.

Best Natural Home Remedies For Colds | episode 128

Download

This week the main topic of the show is Best Natural Home Remedies For Colds. For me, this is a very timely episode. Since I have been fighting the crud. 
 
The odd thing Is I never get sick. Maybe every few years I will get a super bug and have it take me out. This is one of those times. 
 
First up we talk about the hot toddy. My recommendation has always been to use Moonshine to cure coughs. In the podcast, I say 2tbsps of Honey. That’s wrong it is 1 tbsp of honey. 
 
  • 1 Shot of Moonshine
  • 1 TBSP Honey
  • A squeeze of lemon juice. 
The next item on my list of Natural Home Remedies For Colds is pine needle tea. If you are cheap and want a free source of vitamin c pine needles are amazing. 
 
I have used steaming cups of pine needle tea to get through many a rough cold. I like it best to start drinking it at the very onset of a cold. To stop it right in its tracks. 
 
I will also supplement with vitamin c. And in very high doses. Somewhere in the 16~20 grams per day range. For me above the 20 grams per day will cause many bathroom visits. 
 
The winter is the time to make sure you are taking vitamin D. Chances are you like most Americans are deficient in vitamin D. 
 
In the winter with even less sunlight, this problem is exasperated. So get some good quality vitamin D supplements and start taking them daily. 
 
 

 

Topics

 
  • Moonshine honey lemon.
  • Pine needle tea.
  • Vitamin c mega dose.
  • Vitamin d.
  • Bone broth.
  • Hot chocolate theobromine suppresses coughs better than codeine.
  • Harlen Meeks From the Low Watt Living Podcast calls in with a question on lighting when the power is off. 
  • Item Of the Day.
  • All Geared Up With Couch Potato Mike.

Silver Fern Brand Low Carb Baking Mixes First Thoughts

A lot of times when I’m sent food for review I have to wait for a cheat day. With the Silver Fern Brand Low Carb Baking Mixes, I’m not going to have to. 

Silver Fern makes some high-quality low-carb items. Looking through their baking mixes and had a hard time picking only two. 

I went with Lemon bars and chocolate chip cookies. I was going to have Serenity make help these for me. So we will have to wait until Christmas to eat them. 

Reading about the ingredients I came across Kakato™ a naturally high fiber sweetener. Which is a proprietary sweetener blend. 

The Kakato is Contains: Natural Isomalto-Oligosaccharides, Tagatose, Stevia Extract, Monk Fruit Extract, Natural Flavor. The monk fruit extract worries me. 

Years ago I tried Monk Fruit extract and I had pounding headaches every time. So we will see how I fare with the Kakato. 

I’m thinking about ordering just the kakato sweetener for Couch Potato Mike to try. He can’t stand any sweetener that does not have calories. Except for xylitol. And that gives him the poops. 

If I do I’ll make sure I’ll let you guys know how it works out.

How To Build A Cold Weather Debris Survival Hut Infographic

It’s been a while since I’ve built a Cold Weather Debris Survival Hut. And something about the cold weather puts me in the mood to make one. 

Possibly it is the widely available leaf matter on the ground. Or that it’s cool enough to enjoy working outside. 

There are many different methods to building a debris hut. The one pictured in this infographic by Willow Haven Outdoor uses two “Y” shaped branches. 

I have always preferred to find a long pole with a “V” fork on one end.  Then wedge that into a standing tree. 

Either method will work. As will a million variations on them. 

Building a Cold Weather Debris Survival Hut doesn’t have to be rocket science. It can be as complex or as simple as you desire. 

You can build a shelter for a night or a season. 

But the important part is to practice. Learn how to make one now while there is no emergency. So when you need one you can build one. 

With everything practice makes perfect. Just because you have built one once does not make you a Cold Weather Debris Survival Hut expert.

I will be making a shelter building challenge on the Survival Punks Group on facebook soon. So we will see who has the chops to build a nice shelter.

3 Reasons You’ll love Wish App For Survival Gear

Click here to view the original post.
3 Reasons You'll love  Wish App For Survival Gear
3 Reasons You’ll love Wish App For Survival Gear

3 Reasons You’ll love Wish App For Survival Gear

Have you use the wish app for survival gear yet? Why not? I’ve mentioned it on the podcast a few times. It’s kinda like amazon for Chinese made goods. 

Before you say anything about not buying chinses stuff I don’t even want to hear it. The stuff you can get locally is all Chinese made and cost more. 

I would rather pay less and get the same thing. 

When I first heard of the wish app I was not impressed. None of the things I was looking for at the time were on there. Of course, I was looking for Olympic weights. Not the cheapest things to send. 

I mostly thought that it was for trinkets and jewelry. Being a manly man I cared not for these things. 

When I actually decided to give it a try I found out how amazing the wish app is for survival gear. Since then I have made several purchases I’m happy with. 

So what makes the Wish Ap for Great for Survival? Let’s dig into a few points.

 

Price!

The prices in the wish app for survival gear are very reasonable. With some being incredibly cheap. 

Just for example, the have Mechanix Branded tactical gloves for $5. The cheapest I can find on Amazon are $12 with amazon prime. 

On many of the things, I have checked wish has the cheaper price. Usually around half the price. 

Variety

The variety of things you can find is the best part. If you search right. And for the right things. 

I have noticed that the most high level you search for things the better the results. Unlike in amazon. Where you get getter results looking for the exact thing you want.

So looking for morainic will return no results in the wish app. But looking for high-level results such as Survival, Tactical or bushcraft. 

Basically, you want to search for the phrase that will catch the most results then scroll. You may not find what you are looking for but you will find something you want. 

Quality?

How is the quality of the items you will find from the wish app? It varies. It is a shopping app with many vendors selling their wares. 

You will have to look at pictures, rating stars and reviews if there are any. 

If the item looks cheap and junkie it probably is. 

The refund process is easy, though. So no big worries on being ripped off. The people at wish will treat you good even if the vendors might be shady. 

That being said I nor anyone I know who has ordered had been unhappy with their items. 

With clothing make sure to do your homework. The sizes are always weird. You are better off ordering a size too big. 

Conclusion

In conclusion, I recommend the Wish app for Survival for several reasons. The positives of the app outweigh the negatives. 

The prices on gear are often incredibly cheap on most things. There are a few items that seem overpriced. Most seem way underpriced.

Even though the quality is not always great it is always decent. I have not been disappointed with anything. 

Also since I haven’t mentioned it before the shipping is slow. The items are generally coming from overseas. Usually from China. Although I had an item come from the Netherlands once. 

The only issue I ever had with an item not showing up was refunded promptly.

Olight PL-1 II Valkyrie Review The Light Your Weapon Needs

Olight PL-1 II Valkyrie Review

 

I have never been a weapons light guy. No idea why not. Maybe it was simply for lack of having used one. With the Olight Pl-1 II Valkyrie (Amazon Link) things might have changed. 

Used to be there were little choices in firearms lights. You had Surefire lights and junk not to be trusted. Surefire was the standard in high-quality lights. And they charged for it too. 

Then companies Like Olight and Foursevens started to innovate. Whereas the Surefire rested on its laurels and overcharged. 

That is why I have never owned a Surefire. And why at this time Olight is my top pick for all my flashlight needs. 

Let’s get into the Olight Pl-1 II Valkyrie and why you might want to add it to your preps. 

 

Olight Pl-1 II Valkyrie Stats

  • Applicable on MIL-STD-1913 and Glock sized rails.
  • IPX6 Waterproof .
  • Uses a single CR123A battery delivering an output of 450 lumens and a beam distance of 106 meters
  • Switch on/off silently. Push forward directly or hit the side of the switch to activate
  • Heavy duty stainless steel lever making it easy and fast to attach and release
  • Hardened glass coated with an anti-reflective coating on both sides allowing for 99% light transmission rate for maximum clarity

 

The Good 

I’ve talked about it before. When it comes to lights Lumens are king. It is always better to have more lumens available than less. In my review of the Olight H1 Nova, I went on

In my review of the Olight H1 Nova, I went on about how great it was. A large part of that is the 500 lumens it packs. 

The Olight Pl-1 II Valkyrie packs 450 lumens. You can easily move around in the dark with 450 lumens to see by. You don’t want to be trying to move around a dark house with a weak light. 

Shining the Olight Pl-1 II Valkyrie into the eyes of a home intruder will give you a major advantage. In my testing, I immediately closed my eyes and had spots dancing in my vision for a few minutes. 

Turning the light on and off is easy. The button depresses without too much force. I don’t want to struggle to turn on my weapons light while holding my firearm.

There are no crazy modes to mess you up with. Press one side of the tail cap to come straight on. Press both sides for strobe mode. 

The Bad

The Olight Pl-1 II Valkyrie will eat batteries. It will eat 1 CR123 battery every 60 minutes to be precise. And CR123 batteries are not cheap. 

I would highly recommend rechargeable batteries and a charger. 1 hour is plenty of time for a home sweep. But if you want to train with the Olight Pl-1 II Valkyrie, and you should, then get rechargeable batteries. 

I did my testing of the weapons light mounted on my AR15. And it mostly worked great. 

Turning the light on and off where I had rails to mount it to was awkward. If I had rails on my heat shield I would be better. Or if the Olight Pl-1 II Valkyrie had a remote switch to mount near the trigger. 

 

Conclusion

I think that the Olight Pl-1 II Valkyrie is a great weapons light for any handgun. The mounting and ease of use paired with the 450 lumens are great. 

I think it is decent for an AR15. Unless you can mount it right by your hand so you can activate it without moving your hand. In which case, it would be a great addition. 

Do you run a weapons light? Which one do you use? Let me know in the comments!

Survival Hax Self Inflating Sleeping Pad Review

Survival Hax Self Inflating Sleeping Pad Review

The fine folks at Survival Hax sent me this self-inflating sleeping pad for review. Although sleeping pads are not as cool as some other BOB items they are one of the most important. 

When I began building my first Bug Out Bag many years ago a sleeping mat was one of the first things I ever bought. For a very important reason. That reason is maintaining core body temperature and staying alive. 

If you sleep on the ground or in a hammock without insulation beneath you will rapidly lose heat. Conduction is the method you loose heat on the ground. 

When you come into contact with another surface heat transfer will occur. Transfer to a solid object will occur much more effectively than in air. 

So to achieve the first rule of survival we have to prevent this heat loss. Sleeping pads are an effective way to accomplish this. 

The Stats

Let’s break down the stats on the Survival Hax sleeping mat. 

  • Weight: 1.7 Pounds
  • Width: 19.6”
  • Length: 70.8”
  • Thickness: 1.6”
  • Material:  Exterior 75D polyester pongee coated PVC Interior Polyurethane (PU Foam)
  • Packed Size: 10.6 x 5.9”

The Good

The Survival Hax sleeping pad has several good things going for it. 

It packs up smaller than any other sleeping mat I have owned. It is small enough to actually fit inside a pack. All of my other sleeping pads have to be strapped to the outside of my pack. 

The Survival Hax self inflating sleeping pad is the firmest pad I have tested. Most of the self-inflating ones tend to be pretty soft. With this one, you can manually blow in it before closing the valve to get a bit firmer. Just be careful not to overinflate. 

It inflates and deflates quick and easy. No messing around with a pump. 

 

The Bad

The Survival Hax sleeping pad has some room for improvement. It is small. Like really small. To translate the inches to feet 70.8 inches is 5.9 feet. To quote a comedian I heard once Manhood starts at 6 foot. 

Being 6’1 myself this comes up a little short. Meaning either my head or feet will have to hang off. With a pillow or wearing boots, you could solve this. 

Also at 19 inches wide it is pretty narrow. Big and tall guys will not have a good night. 

Conclusion

In conclusion, the Survival Hax self-inflating sleeping pad is not for everyone. And that’s Ok. For most men, this pad is simply way too small. 

If you are a tiny man, a child or a woman then this just might be what you are looking for. If so I do envy you being able to carry such a small packable sleeping mat. 

 

What do you use for a sleeping pad? Closed Cell or self-inflating pad? Let me know in the comments.

How To Stay Warm In a Hammock. Quilts Vs Sleeping Bags

Quilts Vs Sleeping Bags 

Want to know the secret to using a hammock in the winter? The answer leads to quilts vs sleeping bags. And that  is not even a debate in my opinion. 

This infographic comes from Eagles Nest Outfitters

The problem with sleeping bags in a hammock is that the bag will compress under you. The points where the sleeping bag compresses under you will end up freezing. 

Usually, it ends up being your butt and arms getting the coldest. Which is why many think a hammock as being a summer sleep system only.

To not get a  cold butt in a hammock you have a few options. You can sleep with a sleeping mat or use quilts vs sleeping bags. 

I have used all these methods for staying warm in a hammock. With a sleeping mat, you will mostly stay warm. As long as the mat doesn’t move around beneath you. 

Sometimes the mat will slide around on you. This will leave any part without a mat under you freezing. 

Underquilts

Underquilts are definitely the way to go. With a quilt system, you won’t have to worry about compression or a mat slipping out. 

The issue with quilts is in the price. Doing a quick search on amazon I found this one for $43. Many of the top ones are over $100. 

There are some DIY options for under quilts. Here is one using a poncho liner. In the past I have used a poncho liner with great results.
