Nailed it

(Via the Woodpile Report)

I'll admit that I like Larry Corriea's Monster Hunter series a lot, and his take on The Gun Thing even more, so I'm probably a bit inclined to pump my fist when he decides it's time to educate the heathens on the other side. But man, this one is just great.

If any of the SJWs manage to read and understand it, they will shut up all their friends NOW. Otherwise, if that revolution they want happens, there's going to be a shortage of ropes, lampposts and SJWs.

Are you OK? Are you alright? HELP, MEDIC!

Aesop at the Raconteur Report has put up what I believe will be the most important thing I've read this month-medical kit advice from someone in the medical field. Go, read, learn, apply the knowledge.

In other news, water is wet

A UC Davis study examining the first ten years after California adopted universal background checks shows that those checks did not reduce homicides.

Not that this will make any difference in the shrill calls for "universal background checks", because the goal isn't a reduction of crime, but the eventual registration and confiscation of all firearms.

A new improved tourniquet

(Via SurvivalBlog)

It looks like there is another tourniquet out there that hopes to dethrone the CAT. I can't say if it's a superior product or not. Time will answer that question.

Water, water, not here, not there, not anywhere

On SurvivalBlog there is an excellent article about the world nearly ending for Cape Town, South Africa. Drought, coupled with the general African inability to govern in anything short of a kleptocratic manner just about did in one of the great cities of the world.

Don't bet against seeing this story again in the same place.

For us, the lesson to be learned is that it's great to have x different ways to purify your water, but when there's no water to purify things get festive in a hurry. Got blue barrels?

You got your knife on you?

As the son of West "By God" Virginia hillbillies, this sounds so familiar I could be sitting there on the stool beside the author.

The Kind of Men Who Carry Pocketknives. Because real men carry a knife or three, every day.

And in a OMG moment, I went to their home page to see if the site was worth bookmarking, and the lead Article is "Remembering the Days of CB Radios"-and I just bought a President Washington base, because sometimes unlicensed communication just suits me.

Mine's the third version, discernible by the 5 pin mike jack.

Facing down Hell

(Via the Drudge Report)

“I’m not a survivalist, I’m a survivor.”

Even in the People's Republic of California there are hearty individuals-and those who support them-who are willing to risk their lives for what they believe in. Those of us who value individual rights, a strong work ethic and simply the right to live our lives by our own lights need to recognize and salute these people.

The hearty few who refused to give up their homes, in the midst of a fire that consumed their home town of Paradise, CA, might be thought of as reckless and foolish by many. Indeed, I'm not sure I'd have stayed in the midst of that hell. But they did and God and the dice were on their side. Good on ya.
