Personal Protective Gear For A Nuclear Threat.

Good info from my friend JC Dodge. Another good reason to have a good rain suit on hand.

As a kid, the threat of nuclear war was a very real. One of the reasons I chose to go to NBC School while in the military was due to my interest in learning how to survive it as a teenager, and realizing that whatever I may have learned as a civilian, I could probably learn a lot more in the military. At one point I served as a Battalion NBC NCO, and assisted in the planning and conducting of battalion level training events.

Although there are a lot of resources out there, the book Nuclear War Survival Skills is still one of the best and most practical. Although a lot of people believe you need a military NBC suit to survive fallout, in actuality, a standard rubber rainsuit will protect you just as well. The military NBC suit is more for the chemicals in a chemical attack than the…

Bugging out…..?

This is a followup video to a previous one I did, and also to a blog post from JC Dodge at Mason Dixon Tactical.

I’m not saying you should or shouldn’t “bug out”. I’m just saying that you should be very honest about your situation and really think it through.

So here’s the question. Have you planned for what might happen before, during, and after the inauguration? You might say “Well JC, there’s a lot of talk from the communists/socialists/leftists/anarchists/islamicists (you get the point, there’s a lot of “ists” that want to cause problems)…..but it’s just talk…right?” I don’t know, is it? Have you thought through what could happen if there’s an assassination, or even an attempted one, and the consideration that it would most likely be an obvious inside job? What “follow on” steps do you think would be implemented by the bad guys if they actually decided to be that brazen, and go that far? I don’t have a crystal ball, but I believe if they go that far, they will go for broke in every area they can.

The question here is not “Can you stop it?” but “How do I prepare my family and friends to…

A Realistic Bug Out

Good stuff from both JC Dodge and Bergmann. I did a video touching on the subject a little over a year ago.

Most who know me, know that I am staunchly against most people planning to just “Bug Out”to the mountains when the SHTF. I advise people to plan on “Bugging In” where they are, or “Bugging To” a pre-planned location. The are a number of reasons why I’m against a “Bug Out”, but chief among them is that most who plan to do this are doing it out of laziness and/or an overwhelming lack of reality.

Laziness, because it is a lot easier to plan to just throw the pack on and grab the rifle, than it is to prepare to stay put, stock up on supplies, and plan a realistic defense. It would be great if it was that easy (and cheap), but it is not. After approximately two weeks, you will go from being a “Survivalist”, to being a “refugee”.
