With the myriad of handgun choices available today; here are my reasons for preferring the Smith & Wesson M&P 45 to all others.

  • The weapon is accurate, well balanced and I have yet to experience a malfunction during many sessions of range time use.
  • The weapon is comfortable to grip and reasonably lightweight as the frame is made from a Zytel polymer with Stainless Steel structural components.
  • Barrel and slide are made of Stainless Steel with a Black Melonite coating.
  • Length is 7 3/4″ and when empty weighs 1 pound 13.3 ounces.
  • Magazine capacity is 10 + 1 rounds of 45 ACP ammo.
  • Weapon comes with a lifetime service policy.
  • Weapon is designed for the needs of military, law enforcement and civilians.
  • Manual safety is easy to reach and sights are easy to use for quick target acquisition.
  • It is similar in form and function to my other; smaller concealed carry weapon the Smith & Wesson M&P 9C which is functionally the same as the M&P 45 meaning that transition between weapons is smooth and easy.
  • Recoil is minimal for a weapon shooting a 45ACP round.
  • Accessory rail is standard for those who choose to add accessories such as a light.
  • Weapon comes with 3 interchangeable grips depending on the size of your hand.
  • Many different holstering options are available for this specific handgun.

If the SHTF; all law abiding citizens need their primary go to weapons available.  Your primary go to weapons should be 1 -Handgun, 1 – Shotgun and 1 – Rifle.  Everything else can be considered secondary and tertiary weapons.  Here are my primary go to weapons choices for defensive and SHTF scenarios.

Handgun – Smith & Wesson M&P 45

Shotgun – Mossberg 590A1

Just wanted to give other writers an opportunity to share what projects they are working on these days.  As for myself I am halfway through writing my third book entitled American Rebellion Book 3 of the Revolution but I’d like to find out what writing projects/books others of you are working on.  So feel free to discuss your writing here 🙂

America is still the greatest nation on planet Earth.  We seem as a nation, however, to be losing our way.  In light of that here are my solutions to making America great again.  Implement these changes and our country will improve immediately.

  1. Laws need to be fair, simplified and easy to understand.
  2. Laws must be Constitutional.
  3. People need to work for a living and stop receiving “lifetime” government handouts.
  4. Government is too large and needs to be significantly reduced in size.
  5. Government and business corruption needs to be severely punished.
  6. Government needs to stop sticking their noses into every facet of people’s lives and stop trying to regulate everything.
  7. Proper morals and values need to be taught.  There is a right and there is a wrong even if the mainstream media doesn’t think so.
  8. People need to take personal responsibility for their actions.
  9. Criminals need to receive harsher punishments and should serve out their full sentences without the possibility of early release.
  10. Criminals convicted of rape, murder, carjacking, etc., should automatically receive life sentences with no chance of parole or the death penalty.
  11. No restrictions or laws should ever be placed on law abiding citizen’s when it comes to owning guns.
  12. The right to protect your home and family from thugs and criminals should always be the law of  the land free from malicious prosecution. 
  13. Laws should protect law abiding citizens, not thugs and criminals.
  14. Border security must be strengthened and illegal aliens must be deported.
  15. Flat tax should be implemented.  Everyone pays the same low percentage regardless of income level.

There are three kinds of people in the world today.  Those who are predators, those who are prey and those who refuse to be either.  In order to survive in today’s world or any type of post apocalyptic world of the future you must inwardly develop a warrior spirit; a mindset that says I refuse to be a victim.  Everyone must fight for something at some point in their lives and it is imperative that when these encounters take place, that you emerge victorious.

Nobody can tell you what your threat will look like; but when a threat attacks, you must be prepared physically, mentally and emotionally to defend yourself.  If something looks wrong or feels wrong then it is wrong.  Don’t ignore that inner sixth sense that warns you of impending danger.  Remember the rule of three M’s. 1 – Maximize your distance to the threat.  2 – Minimize yourself as a target.  3 – Muzzle always between you and the threat.

Survival is a combination of skills, mindset and gear.  Make sure you train regularly to keep your survival skills sharp.  Keep the proper positive, confident mindset and keep any gear which will keep you alive nearby.  Also make sure you are fully competent with each piece of gear. 

In a survival situation there are no re-do’s.  You only get one chance to do it right and survive the first time.  Take the time to train and plan accordingly.  After all it’s your life; make sure you keep it by doing what is necessary to stay alive.

If a criminal breaks into your home you have the responsibility to ensure the safety of yourself and your family.  If you are holding the criminal at gunpoint the following are some recommended steps to follow.

  • Call 911.
  • Inform the 911 operator that you are holding an intruder (criminal) who has broken into your home at gunpoint and that you are the homeowner.
  • Inform the 911 operator that you are in fear for your life and if the criminal takes any aggressive action you will shoot the criminal in self defense to protect yourself and your family.
  • Order the criminal to keep his hands in the air, get down on his knees, then get face down on the floor with his head turned the opposite way from you and to spread his arms out from his sides away from his body.
  • Inform the 911 operator that you are the homeowner and describe what you are wearing.
  • Inform the 911 operator that the criminal is lying face down on the floor and describe what he is wearing.
  • Make sure there is a clear distinction between what you the homeowner are wearing and your position, standing up in the home as opossed to what the criminal is wearing and his position on the floor in the home.
  • Keep the 911 operator on the line until the police arrive.
  • Have a family member if possible meet the police outside, reiterate the situation and escort them in.
  • Lower your weapon when the police arrive and follow their instructions.  Make sure they are fully aware that you are the homeowner and not the criminal.
  • Inform the police that you want the criminal prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and that you are prepared to press charges.
