America is in a state of decline.  It’s obvious and the following 10 things need to change immediately in order to get this country of ours back on track.  Here are those things.

  1. The media must relearn the basics of reporting.  The lamestream media twists the truth and incorrectly reports so many things that they can no longer be trusted to report the truth.
  2. Politicians must get back to supporting and preserving the ideals as set forth in the Constitution.
  3. Liberalism must be stopped before it further destroys the nation.  Liberal ideas are an anathema to the great things America used to be able to achieve.
  4. Welfare must be ended.  Anyone who spends their entire life on welfare and is proud of it should be ashamed of themselves but unfortunately they seem to revel in it.
  5. Americans who don’t have a work ethic must develop one and take pride in their achievements and successes.  You cannot expect others to provide for you when you are perfectly capable of providing for yourself.
  6. Honor, integrity and ethics must be restored.  We need to stop catering to and pandering to those in the media spotlight whose bad behavior is constantly rewarded.
  7. Those who try to take away our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and who seek to destroy our Constitutional rights need to be exposed for who they really are and if in politcal office they need to be voted out.
  8. Common sense needs to be restored to politics, the media, and individuals as they go about their daily lives.  
  9. Personal Responsibility needs to be the backbone of every individual when it comes to living their lives.
  10. Support and defend the Constition of the United States of America.  Anyone trying to pass laws contra to the constitution should be brought up on criminal charges.

In any scenario; it is important to be aware of all that is around you as part of your 360 degree security plan.  You need to pay particular attention to anyone or anything which seems out of place.  Trust your instincts, do not ignore them as your first concern will be to stay alive.

You are your own first line of defense.  Based on circumstances the course of action you choose needs to be carried through without hesitation.  When faced with violence, which cannot be avoided, you must have the will to act with ferocity and severity in order to save your life.

It is irrational in this day and age that a law abiding citizen would not carry some form of a weapon.  To choose not to carry a weapon intentionally renders yourself partially defenseless.  Violence is escalating and many attacks occur in fringe areas such as deserted parking lots, alleyways, public bathrooms, stairwells, ATM kiosks, etc., where no immediate help will be available.

The most reliable and powerful weapon will do you no good if a situation demands immediate, decisive action for your survival and you fail to take action.  While it is best to avoid violence; if you are in a life threatening situation you may need to react violently to save your life.  Never escalate a situation which could turn violent until you consider where it might lead.

Why is tactical mindset so important?  Because you must be willing to defend yourself against anyone who would harm you or your family.  You must be mentally prepared to use your skills defensively.  You have a right and a responsibility to protect yourself against an attack.  Practice situational awareness and avoidance; know your escape routes; maintain physical boundries and use verbal diffusion when appropriate.  By staying situationally aware you remove the element of surprise from an enemy. Tactical mindset is all about survival in a dangerous world. 

Most threats to home and family will come at close range.  Never turn your back to an adversary.  If an enemy is within range than so are you.  Maintain a survivors attitude by doing all that is necessary to survive; refusing to become a victim and never ever giving up.  Remember you have a right and a responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

Learn to visualize conflict and response.  This simulates experiences within your mind and experiences will build confidence.  Your mindset, your attitude, your tactics and your gear are all crucial elements to stop an attack.  Remember any weapon in the hands of a coward is useless so work on developing a tactical mindset of confidence, honor and bravery.  It just might save your life someday.

Some of my readers have asked what books am I working on next?  Well I’m glad they asked.  In about three weeks my first zombie fiction book will be available entitled Biohazard Redaction, Book 1 of the Zombie Apocalypse.  That will be followed up by more books in this new, continuing zombie series.

I’m also continuing to work on my existing series of post apocalyptic fiction books; already available at Amazon.com which so far is comprised of American Rebellion Book 1 of the Revolution, American Rebellion Book 2 of the Revolution, American Rebellion Book 3 of the Revolution, American Rebellion Book 4 of the Revolution and American Rebellion Book 5 of the Revolution.  Much further down the road I also plan on doing a fictional serial killer mystery series as well; so my writing plate is full.

My American Rebellion series continues to sell very well but of course getting folks to leave any reviews (good reviews preferred) lol is an uphill battle.  But book sales have far exceeded my expectations so I’m thankful for that; and to my loyal readers who take the time to contact me and express their likes and dislikes.  Again I appreciate all of my readers very much.  Thanks for sharing this journey with me.

When your shot placement is off target there are 5 common reasons why this occurs.

  1. Jerking the trigger which causes the front sight to move off target.  Corrective action is to slowly and steadily squeeze the trigger keeping your front sight on target.
  2. Recoil anticipation which also causes the front sight to move off target.  Corrective action is not to anticipate the recoil before it actually occurs.
  3. Improper trigger finger placement, when the trigger is squeezed at an angle, this causes the muzzle to move off target.  Corrective action is to maintain a straight, even finger placement on the trigger prior to squeezing off a round.
  4. Inconsistencies in grip, stance, strength or alignment.  Corrective action is to maintain correct and consistent grip, stance, strength and alignment.
  5. Improper zeroing of weapon.  Corrective action is to properly zero your weapon.  A proper zero on a weapon enables you to consistently make your point of aim equal your point of impact.

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 most important for preparing for your own survival.

  • 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 in 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 moral and ethical during times of crisis.
  • As I constantly remind readers; stay situationally aware.  You must know what is going on around you so that dangerous people and situations cannot catch you off guard.

In any SHTF, TEOTWAWKI or WROL situation you will find that some people will behave irrationally and may try to take advantage of chaotic situations.  Expect these people to commit criminal acts.  You must be prepared to defend yourself and your family.  All of these people will want something from you and many of them will do nothing to prepare; but will still feel they are owed something.  Just because a disaster has ocurred does not mean the attitude of the unprepared will change.

Do not allow strangers to latch onto you.  They can prove to be very dangerous.  Your goal is to prepare to ensure your family’s survival; not the survival of every stranger that passes by.  You must be prepared to defend yourself and your family from those who would try and harm you and steal your food, water, guns, ammo and other survival supplies.  If strangers had the chance to prepare and chose not to, it is not your responsibility to provide for them.

Your survival skills and your supplies will not be able to save everyone but they can help save the people who matter to you the most.  You must learn to trust your instincts and stay alert, avoid becoming predictable, be observant, familiarize yourself with your surroundings, learn to move quietly in all environments and avoid large groups of people.  In any survival situation your attitude is everything.

The SOG Jungle Primitive Fixed Blade Knife is an incredibly sharp knife right out of the box.   It is a large knife; 9.5 inches with a partially serated 420 hardened black, stainless steel blade.  The handle is a molded Kraton material but I found it works better after I wrapped it four times with black, cloth hockey tape.  It increases the thickness of the handle and I find the grip works better that way.   The total length is 15.3 inches, weighs 14 ounces and comes with a nylon sheath with accessory pouch and a lifetime warranty.

On the pro side the knife is large, sharp, ergonomic, comfortable and durable and both the sheath and the knife are well made.  On the con side the accessory pouch for the sharpening stone does not come with the sharpening stone; and the handle which has a designed drilled hole in it, to accomodate a wrist strap or paracord does not come with the strap or paracord.

I also found the handle to be a little too thin; but as mentioned earlier that was quickly remedied by wrapping the handle with black cloth hockey tape.  I added my own paracord by running it through the hole in the handle; and then knotted the ends and sealed them by using a lighter to keep  the cord from fraying.

Retail prices are all over the place.  On average you should pay between $25.00 and $35.00 for this knife.  I’ve seen places selling the exact same knife for $60.00.  Don’t do it.  You can find these knives for between $25.00 and $35.00 dollars.  Overall it is an excellent knife for the money.

In a survival situation it is important to stay calm and avoid being careless or impatient.  You must learn to recognize and control your fear.  Remember that there is always something you can do to improve your situation.  Consider all of the facts then make effective decisions.

Formulate responses based on safety, security and survival.  Use all of your senses and trust that gut feeling that you get that tells you that something is wrong.  Use common sense to avoid situations and locations that increase your risk of danger.  Remember maximize your distance to a threat; minimize yourself as a target and keep your muzzle between you and the threat.

Your survival depends upon applying survival principles and adapting them to your situation.  You must take responsibility for your own survival and not rely on anyone else to save you.  Outside help may be coming, but there will be times when outside help is not available, so you must rely on yourself.

Develop the will to survive.  You must have the mindset that you will survive.  Attitude and determination are great allies just as doubt and fear are your enemies.  Stay calm and don’t worry about things that you can’t control.  Keep your eyes and ears focused on the task at hand and be aware of your surroundings.  You must think clearly and react accordingly.

The better prepared you are and the more self reliant you become; the better your chances are for survival.  Avoid dangerous areas and especially avoid areas that are subject to martial law.  Stay informed with reliable, factual information and do not draw uneccessary attention to yourself or your family.  Never take someone’s word at face value if it involves your life, liberty and safety without carefully scrutinizing the information first.  

Your survival is more important than obeying dictates especially if those dictates are counter-productive to your survival chances.  Be adaptable; if your survival plan is not working to your satisfaction then switch plans.   Develop peace of mind as frustration leads to bad decision making.   Anything that you do should be designed to have a positive result or a positive change in your life.  Avoid taking actions that will have a negative consequence when it comes to your safety and survival.
