Preppers: Choose Your Weapons

I think, in practical terms, I have learned more concerning the world around me, and how to work through an emergency, than most. My father taught we how to manage my finances, maintain vehicles, and be a man. My grandfather had a genuine love for animals and taught me to care for them and also taught me how to hunt successfully. My grandmother taught me to prepare food. Today, many are concerned with being prepared. We call them preppers. I think they are simply self-reliant folks who do not wish to stand on the corner and beg for help with the sheep when things go wrong. Firearms are a critical part of the plan too.

The Ultimate Protection from an EMP for $20 — The Resistor ARK

Perhaps the hottest new product to come out of the 2017 SHOT Show will not be a gun or new bullet. While at a large press lunch with more than a dozen vendors, Crossbreed Holsters was causing a stir. My first thought was, “All that for another new holster?” Something wasn’t right. Finally, after my curiosity got the best of me, I set a bee line for the front. After elbowing my way to the front of the line, I learned the reason for the commotion.

Crossbreed branched out with a new product launch—The Resistor. The Resistor is part of the ARK Protector Series. Essentially, it is protects your stuff from the elements. No big deal right? Well it is also a shield from one of the biggest and most likely global threats—Electromagnetic pulse. I was a bit skeptical, but it kept getting better. The material used to make the ARK Resistor bag is the same as is used to protect missile guidance systems for U.S. Military weapon systems. The Shooter’s Log will be reviewing The Resistor ARK in future. For now, here is the full release from Crossbreed.

ARK RESISTER BAG

The Ark Resister Bag by CrossBreed offers superior electronics protection that significantly exceeds all military requirements for EMP and static discharge resistance including the stringent standards of MIL-PRF-81705. Previously available only to the military to protect high value guided weapon systems, the Ark Resister Bag is now available exclusively through CrossBreed. Reusable by design with 20 years of proven field use, the Resister Bag can also be used to line a case and serve as a Faraday Cage for sensitive and valuable electronic devices. When heat sealed, the Resister Bag is also waterproof, dustproof, corrosion, and puncture resistant.

Slingshots for Survival

From the time I was 6 or 7 years old, I’ve carried a slingshot. Very quickly, I became not only proficient, but the bane of much of the small game available in and around my rural subdivision. With 3/8-inch ball bearing ammo, I could regularly bring home a rabbit or squirrel to be cleaned and eaten.

Surviving a Wildfire

September is National Preparedness Month. Be ready! Have a plan and make an emergency kit. The Shooter’s Log has all the information you need to prepare for disasters.

It’s not if, it’s when.

Mostly caused by lightning or human carelessness, a wildfire is any type of uncontrolled and unwanted burning of any wild land. Wildfires occur all over the world at any time of the year, but the hotter summer months produce more forest fires than other months.
