Summary: Prepping Survival For Those Under the Radar and don't want everyone to know.
My old grandpa said to me ‘Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take a whoop-in.’ I don’t carry a gun to kill people. I carry a gun to keep from being killed. I don’t carry a gun to scare people. I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place. I don’t carry a gun because I’m paranoid. I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world. I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil. I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world. I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government. I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government. I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry. I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared. I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone. I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon. I don’t carry a gun because I’m a cowboy. I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy. I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man. I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love. I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate. I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate… I don’t carry a gun because I love it. I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me. Police protection is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect themselves. Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess. Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take an “ass” whoopin’…. author unknown (but obviously brilliant) A LITTLE GUN HISTORY In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 19 29 to 19 53, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated. China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million. You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens. Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late! The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson. With guns, we are ‘citizens’. Without them, we are ‘subjects’. During WW II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED! If you value your freedom, please spread this anti gun-control message to all of your friends. The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sw[...]

Most Primitive Weapons for Survival If you should be reduced to an absolute naked survival situation, you have immediate considerations of food and defense. Assuming you are not going to have time to learn and practice the art of napping flint for knives and points, you are going to have to go further back in time for more basic equipment. Start with the most basic of basics which is rocks and sticks. There are round rocks you can use as hammers; smaller rocks you can use as projectiles; sharper rocks you can use to cut and chop; short, heavy sticks for clubs and longer sticks for spears. Practice looking around you as you go about your daily business and learn to continuously assess the weapons potential of items you see all around you. Once you begin to see them in this light, it is a short step of imagination to figure out how to make them work.

Often overlooked in the discourse on prepper armaments, airguns can be a valuable resource for procuring crisis food, particularly in urban and suburban settings. At close range, out to perhaps 50 yards, a good airgun will readily kill small game, such as squirrels, pigeons and rabbits. Some online airgun forums even discuss killing larger animals, such as bobcats, raccoons and feral hogs with airguns. These larger animals are all killed at relatively close range with accurate shots between the eyes. Stealth Weapons Airguns are not to be confused with your spring-fired Red Ryder BB gun. These are precision weapons costing from about $130 up to more than $500. They operate on compressed air, either compressed by a piston within the gun, or a co2 cartridge or a pressure recharge from an external pump or scuba tank. These serious guns operate at velocities from 650 to 1200 feet per second. Common calibers are .17, .22 and .25. The larger calibers operate at slower speeds and compensate by larger projectile mass. One of the great advantages of the airgun is that it is very quiet compared to a firearm of similar caliber. It is also easy to make an air gun even quieter. Ammo consists of several types of pellets, configured for accuracy, penetration or blunt force. It is cheap compared to firearm ammunition. There are airgun clubs and competitions and if you spend some effort you can find a knowledgeable individual who would share his knowledge with you. If you are interested in this subject, investigate some of the online airgun forums or visit a gun shop that specializes in these weapons.

HANDGUNS Here is a blog sure to start arguments. There are more opinions about handguns than there are shooters – and that is quite a lot. This blog will look at handguns from the issues of type and utility. To start, there are three basic handgun types: Revolvers, automatic pistols (ACP) and derringers. Each type is available in numerous calibers. There are two areas of major argument: revolvers vs (automatic) pistols, and 9mm vs .45 cal. automatic pistols. Let’s take derringers first since there are fewer issues. These are small, break-action, highly concealable handguns, usually double barreled. Their utility is self-defense at close range. Effectiveness depends on caliber, distance from target and shot placement. Revolvers evoke the romance of the Old West, the era that saw them evolve into prominence. Revolvers are available in calibers from .22 to .50, with mid-range weapons in .32, .38 and .357 being most common. Larger calibers, such as .44’s; .45’s and .50’s are generally used for hunting or specialized competitions. Revolvers may come in single-action, which requires cocking the hammer before a shot can be fired and double-action which allows the trigger pull to rotate the cylinder, cock the hammer and fire the shot. Revolvers are extremely reliable and can handle powerful magnum ammunition. They are slower to reload and have relatively limited ammunition capacity (usually 5 or 6 shots). Automatic pistols have corresponding advantages and disadvantages. You can keep one unloaded and be ready to shoot in seconds by inserting a full ammo clip. High capacity magazines can give you 15-30 shots. They are relatively flatter than revolvers and easier to carry concealed. They can be very accurate. They are primarily defensive handguns and generally not used for hunting. The automatic pistol argument, 9mm vs .45 cal, stems from the US military adopting the international 9mm as its standard issue firearm, replacing the venerable .45. Both have their ardent advocates. Here is a summary of the arguments: .45 – heavier bullet, larger wound channel, greater likelihood of a one-shot stop, ammo reasonably available, good accuracy. 9mm – faster bullet, nearly same penetration as .45, better accuracy, faster follow-up shots, greater magazine capacity, plentiful and cheaper ammo. Revolver or ACP; 9mm or .45 – You choose. The post Prepper Handguns Arms and Ammunition appeared first on Closet Preppers.
