While the FBI's official report on the Oct. 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas - the deadliest in American history - a judge on Tuesday unsealed 300 pages of search warrant records, including a document that appears to validate claims that shooter Steven Paddock may have had help planning his attack.That's because the documents revealed, for the first time, a publicly identified "person of interest" whose name has thus far not been publicly reported as part of the investigation, the Las Vegas Review-J ...
Did you ever think about how different your day to day life would be after an SHTF event? The little things we take for granted now, like making a meal, staying warm, or having water to drink and bathe in would suddenly become a whole lot more complicated.Who better to tell us what that is like than Selco? For those who don’t know, Selco spent a year in a city in Bosnia that was blockaded. During that year, he and the other residents lived without our normal amenities like heat, running water, e ...

In the wake of the Aurora Theater shooting, I suggested that private sector establishments ought to be expected to be more concerned about the safety of their customers.In the case of the Aurora Theater, this was magnified by the fact that the theater was a “gun free zone” and did not allow patrons to carry their own firearms as self defense.

What that means is that all we have to retire on is our Social Security benefits. That’s not all that much.Having money in savings doesn’t help all that much either. It used to be that if you have a million dollars in the bank, you had it made for retirement. Your million would net you $50,000 per year at 5% interest; ...

FEMA’s new director, Brock Long, has repeatedly said that Americans do not have a “culture of preparedness,” something that is much-needed with the startling uptick in natural disasters. Long has only been the director of FEMA since June 20 of this year and already has had to deal with a historic number of disasters in this short period of time.It appears that Mr. Long has a mindset of self-reliance based on a couple of recent stateme ...

In the last three weeks, we’ve seen two of the worst hurricanes in history strike our shores, with Hurricane Harvey hitting Houston and the surrounding area, and Hurricane Irma hitting all of Florida.While the 6.5 million inhabitants of the Houston metro weren’t told to evacuate, Florida Governor Rick Scott issued a statewide evacuation order, telling 5.6 million people to move out of the state for the duration.Considering that only 1.2 million people live in the New Orleans area, either of thes ...
When you first enter the survival community, you hear a great deal about bugging out. However, for most people in most survival scenarios bugging in makes more sense.Bugging In | Fortifying Your Home Before The SHTFBugging in is the process of fortifying your home and having all needed resources on hand to survive long term.
