The minuteman concept has been a staple of the American way of life since it's development and even prior to that. The concept is that a man can be ready to defend his home, his town, and his freedom at any time by taking up arms and fighting alongside his neighbors. This effectively is the concept behind a militia, with the militia being a more organized unit with a certain task and readiness level. In this segment, I want to discuss the differences in the philosophy and between a militia and the minuteman. I personally think that the differences are important enough.
In this day and age, civil unrest is highly anticipated, which has swelled the ranks of many militias. Unfortunately this has encouraged individuals to consider preparing to fight. I do not like the way that militias go about training, and in fact, I find their methods and ideals to be derpy at best. Alot of these members participate in strictly conventional warfare training and training that does not prepare them for reality. In this article, I merely wanna talk about the kind of loadout that I would find to be respectable and practical, from the perspective of someone who has had to haul ammo and gear in combat. Not to pat myself on the back too much, but I feel that I have enough experience to give solid recommendations for efficiently operating in hostile territory.
Out of all the people that have a dedicated EDC system or kit, you can bet that they are going to have a knife, if not several on them. In this article, I figured that I would just add my input into the point of a carry knife and what I see them being good for.
When a prepper is selecting a food for long term storage and preparation, they typically look to the military for inspiration. They see the military storing MRE's and other shelf stable food items in warehouses for years at a time. The problem is that copying the military in this manner and thinking the MRE's are good for long term sustenance is a dangerous mindset.
I do not entertain the idea of prepping or militias with too much frequency for a very specific reason; I do not have much stock in either. The two seem to be activities rather than a mindset and these organizations forming militias tend to be populated by people who have ideas not based in reality. I feel that the current state of the militia movement is more toxic than it is organized and useful.
Budget gun has an interesting sound to it that sends mixed emotions. Some people feel that guns priced below a certain amount can not be reliable or good in any way, shape, or form. That price range can vary from being over $400 to over $600. But no matter what this dedicated price range judgement is, I think people need to realize the fact that you don't always get what you pay for. Also, just because something is really inexpensive, it doesn't mean it is junk.
Before we start, let me first say that I am not a doctor, or a medical professional. The subject I am going to discuss is based off my own research, and my own experiences. If you are going to make any change in your diet, I recommend consulting with your doctor, as I have to make sure that your body can handle such a diet as the one your are considering. Now, let us begin.
We see people form in huge lines for ammo at the big box gun stores before elections. The fear that our 2nd Amendment is yet again under siege always drives people to make an investment in guns and ammo. But are we going about this all wrong? When should we really be preparing and building up our stocks?
Today, it is common for people to gravitate to the latest and greatest designs in pistol technology. I personally understand the desire to do this, but I find myself still attached to designs that have proven themselves through combat and rigorous use.
