This is a second article by the same reader who asked not to be identified. During my last article I discussed various scenarios for using non-lethal defenses. While the responses were great, they did focus on an ancillary aspect of the article I didn’t intend to be the focus of discussion. In that article I […]

Guest Post by a reader who wishes to remain anonymous. You can’t get away from it. Prepping/survival blogs, websites, books, videos etc. all inevitable (and sometimes initially too) discuss the need for a defense strategy in the face of a SHTF event leading to living (at least temporarily) in a WROL environment.

Okay, the truth is I commented on a post over at SHTF Plan, on his post “When is it Okay to Defend Your Life and Your Family?”  Intellectually you might think, any time someone I don’t want on my property is there, or anytime someone threatens my family and I.  Well, according to the law […]

Well, just walked through the door from my flight home from Los Angeles.  Flipping through some mail from the week, and what do I see but a letter from the state of Utah.  Opened it up and my non-resident, concealed firearms permit was in there with a letter stating I was approved. I applied for […]

Reviews of the Henry Survival Rifle / AR-7

by suburban July 7, 2010 Guns / Weapons

So a couple months ago I bought a Henry .22 Survival rifle.  It is an interesting rifle that packs up into its own stock for storage.  I’ve shot it a couple of times and have mixed feelings about it.  It seems to do exactly what Henry said it would do, and the manufacturer stated you […]
