A necessary addition to any suburban survival arsenal is a plinking rifle.  You may be asking yourself, what is a plinking rifle?  Think of the rifle you would use to shoot tin cans off of a fence post in your backyard…. that is a plinking rifle.  The benefits of a plinker are 1) little or […]

Handgun Choices for the New Gun Owner

Precious Metals As Currency, My Thoughts

by suburban February 1, 2015 Barter

I have a somewhat skewed view of precious metals. I believe that in a post SHTF situation people will not just turn to precious metals as currency.  The average person will raid their change jar and use whatever cash they have on hand to pay for goods until they run out of that fiat currency. […]

I had a friend in town this weekend from Florida. Ms. Prepper and I went into NYC last night to go to dinner. While in the cab downtown on the lower east side, as we were driving around the 20th street area, wasn’t I surprised to see an MRAP (https://www.leidos.com/sites/default/files/u14/mrap1.jpg) parked on the uptown side of the street, […]

How many times in the last several weeks have you heard about Ebola?  Too many?  Me too.  Some may say I am crazy, some may say I am cautious, and some are walking around living in their bubble of life without a clue. It was only a few weeks ago, when I published a booklet […]

No More Apartment Prepping… Any advice?

by suburban May 12, 2014 Personal

Well, it seems I usually start out a post with, “It’s been a while, but…”  In this case, I can say that it’s been just about two months; it’s been stressful, rewarding, expensive, and much more.  Anyway, as the title says, I’m out of the apartment into a house.  There is a LOT more space. Any […]
