  • Preparedness Notes for Tuesday – October 16, 2018

    October 15th, 1859 is the anniversary of abolitionist John Brown’s raid against the federal armory in Harpers Ferry, Virginia (now West Virginia), in an attempt to start an armed slave revolt and destroy the institution of slavery. Although the raid failed, it inflamed sectional tensions and raised the stakes for the 1860 presidential election. Brown’s raid helped make any further accommodation between North and South nearly impossible and thus became an important impetus of the Civil War. o o o It is worth noting that SurvivalBlog has now surpassed 30,000 archived articles and columns since August of 2005.

  • Writing Your Prize-Winning SurvivalBlog Article

    One of the great things about SurvivalBlog is that it is nearly all staff-written and reader-written. We also carefully select a few articles from other blogs and web sites to re-post as guest posts. But you never see the schlock “contributed” articles that now clog most other blogs. Those are articles and “infographics” that are mostly paid for and provided by companies that are seeking to boost their search engine rankings, or to hawk their products. They are easy to spot, because of their formulaic writing style with no personality. You will also never see a “paid” or “sponsored” review …

  • The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

    “The Kavanaugh confirmation hearings instantly devolved into hen house histrionics, mutual mooning and feces flinging. As intended. No news story or commentary was complete without recapping “Our Story Thus Far” in tedious nanodetail and blather about a turning point in American history fully equal to the Battle of Gettysburg. No. It wasn’t. It was a job interview for the Star Chamber. In the end he was hired, after much signaling in Senateese that the Constitution will remain captive in the high court’s cellar, bound and gagged and beaten at intervals.” – Ol’ Remus, in his Yer ‘Ol Woodpile Report blog

Conceal With The Best, Not Necessarily Easiest I’ve always looked for the best, not necessarily easiest, method of carrying a handgun concealed, as most of the work I’ve done in law enforcement and in private security/private investigations have called for working in “soft clothes” rather than a uniform of any type. I’ve lost track of the number of times over the years I’ve spotted a “concealed” handgun on …
