I often travel the backwoods trails to re-connect with nature and find new camping grounds. Since there’s always a chance to find myself face to face with a dangerous animal, I bring some protection along. If you’re looking for a small and reliable handgun for off-grid defense, here are my suggestions for pocket revolvers.
Active shooting situations are on the rise, a report from the government shows a massive increase since early 2000, happening in over 40 states. One of the scariest parts of these attacks is that there is no warning before they happen, so the only safety measure is preparation, both physically and mentally.
The handgun you should choose for a SHTF situation is a little different from the one you carry around everyday. Preppers have a few things to worry about that the average Joe doesn’t, because whichever handgun you choose for self-defense you want to make sure it will keep going long after civilisation collapses.
When you look at the hunting scenario, a lot has changed over the course of time. Back in the day, people used to use stones, bow and arrows for survival hunting but today there is enough feasibility to use many other tools. When you seek advice from hunters on what to use for hunting, they would suggest an air rifle because that is what suits the current requirement.
Almost every American has a firearm or two and we can’t imagine our lives without them. Since not every family has a “gun budget” I suggest buying a used firearm. It will help you save money for your other prepping plans. To make sure you made the right purchase pay attention to the following before buying a used firearm.
There are many, many different ways for an act of terrorism to arise right before your eyes. As always, preparedness is the key ingredient for surviving such an experience. Terror-like lash outs can occur in many forms.
Many preppers invest a lot of their hard earned money in stockpiling ammo. This practice is widely spread and is considered a safety net in case it hits the fan. Answering the age-old question of “how much ammo is enough?” is not easy and the following should be considered.
Carrying a concealed weapon comes with responsibilities and consequences. Concealed carry is a complex subject and you need to inform yourself to stay current and stay alive. Learning about concealed carry weapon is an ongoing process and it continues even after you receive your certificate.
When the brown stuff hits the fan which gun would you grab if your survival depends on it? Making the right choice seems easy for some and many will argue that a .22 rifle or the AR-15 is the best survival gun out there. Unfortunately, things are never easy when one needs to pick the best survival gun available on the market. The choices you have are affected by multiple considerations.
Nowadays it seems that home invasions are becoming more and more frequent. If you happen to be the victim of a home invasion you will need to do everything you possibly can to defend yourself. Equipping your home with some protective furniture might be your only hope for survival.
Surviving in today’s modern times is becoming more and more difficult. Besides the natural hazards we are prepping for, we also have to pay attention to the human factor. Man-made threats seem to increase with every passing year and terrorist attacks and active shooter scenarios are present now more than ever. Surviving an active shooter scenario requires proper knowledge and people should know how to respond to such an attack.
The invention of gunpowder changed the battlefield forever and man was able to improve his ways of waging war and killing food. Long before gunpowder was invented, a sharp stick propelled down range was the top of ballistic technology. For thousands of years, survival archery was the only thing that helped man provide for his family and defend his lands.
After putting a few thousand rounds through my Walther PPX M1 9mm SD I thought I would give you the low down on it.
