Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed to the fullest.  You should live the way you want, work at something you enjoy doing, reside where you want and get as much satisfaction from life as possible.  Along with that however, it is also prudent to be prepared for situations in life where things are contra to your best interests.  Disasters such as social unrest, war, famine, societal collapse, escalations in violent crime, etc., are just some of the things that in this day and age are of concern to many.  So, along with enjoying the good times, it is also important to prepare for the bad times.

The following are the things I consider the most important for preparing for your own survival during times of crisis.

  • There is no such thing as having too much canned food or water set aside.  If disaster strikes, grocery stores may not be available to supplement your needs.  You must maintain a minimum of 3 months worth of food and water per person.
  • Yes, yes, yes you must have a sufficient amount of guns and ammunition and be well versed in their use.  You may have sufficient quantities of emergency supplies, but if others try and forcibly take them, you must be able to hold onto what you have.
  • People can and will panic during disasters so avoid large crowds and any areas subject to martial law and or rioting. 
  • Use common sense and good judgement when deciding whom to trust.
  • Always keep  small amounts of cash on hand.  A disaster may render ATM’s and credit card systems useless.  If so, cash or barter may be the only ways to immediately conduct business.
  • Take responsibility for your own survival.  Ability without character is useless.  Remain as moral and as ethical during times of crisis as you deem prudent.

Bundy ranch standoff with the feds ends in favor of the Bundy family.  A win for the Bundy’s and the 2nd Amendment.  The standoff between the feds and the Bundy’s clearly illustrates the importance of why the 2nd amendment needs to be supported and defended.  When the government oversteps its authority the 2nd amendment will come shining through.

When target shooting with your handguns it is important to be accurate but it is also important to develop good and safe gun handling techniques.  No one technique is right for everyone.  There is no such thing as one method that is perfect.  If the method you use is safe and acccurate then stick with it.  If the barrel is pointed at the target and maintained reasonably wobble free; your shot placement will be good.  Sometimes I focus on the front sight which blurs the target and sometimes I focus on the target which blurs the front sight but I seem to shoot reasonably accurately both ways.

As an example of doing things unconventionally anyone who has seen me use a speedloader, in a revolver, will tell you I do it in a very unconventional way.  But it is a safe way and it works for me and is much faster than any of the so called conventional methods that people are generally taught these days.  The important thing is it works for me so I stick with it.  If your technique is safe and works for you then stick with it as well.

Range bags and or packs can be interesting things.  Many of us form a love/hate relationship with them and are constantly looking for something better as our handgun transport needs to the range, at the range, and from the range change. Many times range shooters use the exaxct same bags, which is not an issue, when the bag is kept at your shooting station.  But at some ranges they need to be kept away from the shooting station and left on a table generally ten to twenty feet behind you.

If I want to know where my range bag/pack is; and make sure no one accidently walks off with it; it needs to be different and it needs to stand out from the others. The one I currently use is shown below.  It works well; has all of the pockets and internal and external pouches I need for handguns and related supplies, and it definitely does not look like everyone elses.  The apocalypse/zombie theme colors are simply an added conversation piece.  When range bags/packs are all together on a back bench or table; having the ability to find mine quickly, when I need it, is now a very easy process.
