I had planed to record episode 3 of the podcast last week, but time got away from me. I have been working on a bug-out article for the site and some other things. I am also involved in the political process, so the election has been taking up a lot of my attention as well. […]

My experience buying a gun online
Featured Post, Knowledge

Up until recently I have always bought guns at a gun store, a pawn shop or a big box store that sells guns. For many years most of us have operated under the assumptions from the years after the GCA ’68, that dealers bought from distributors. We then went to the dealer and bought our […]

What is the best political party for preppers?
Featured Post, Opinion, Politics

Prepping and survivalism have always been a politically charged subject. It should come a no surprise that the editor of a preparedness website might be a little political. For a long time, I have avoided politics on this blog, but I have spent much of the last two years involved in local politics and I […]

Ruger adds the 5.7×28 to it’s line up.
Featured Post, News

It’s about time! For quite awhile I have been following the 5.7x28mm cartridge introduced in 1991 by FN. While most argue its usefulness as a defensive round for civilian use, my curiosity has been more about its uses for small game hunting and target shooting.

Ruger .22lr LCP 2
Ruger Adds a New Cambering to The LCP Line.
Featured Post, News

Yesterday Ruger announced that they were adding .22 Long Rifle to it’s popular LCP II line of compact pistols. This should be a good addition to a prepper’s firearm collection for low-cost practice and for those that have issues with higher recoil in small guns. While not considered optimal for self-defense, a round that allows […]

The Value of Field Guides
Featured Post, Prepper Library

“A field guide is a book designed to help the reader identify wildlife (plants or animals) or other objects of natural occurrence (e.g. minerals). It is generally designed to be brought into the ‘field’ or local area where such objects exist to help distinguish between similar objects.[1] Field guides are often designed to help users […]

Firearms Responsibility
Featured Post, Knowledge, Safety, ,

I would like to start with two points. First, it is the position of Ready Magazine that firearms ownership is an individual, personal right that is protected by the Constitution, not granted. Guns are an important survival tool that everyone should consider and decide on based on their beliefs and needs. Second, I will not […]
