The Blackout Series by Bobby Akart

~ by Bobby Akart, Contributing writer to the American Preppers Network, host of the Prepping for Tomorrow program on Prepper Broadcasting and nine-time best selling author of The Blackout Series, The Boston Brahmin Series and The Prepping for Tomorrow Series. I have written about the importance of prepper fiction as a tool for convincing the non-prepper family member or friend to consider a self-reliant and preparedness lifestyle. A well-written story may be fabricated but it helps us comprehend the world nonetheless. As Stephen King once wrote – Fiction is the truth behind the lie. After my success with The Boston Brahmin Series, readers and friends within the American Preppers Network encouraged me to tell the story of a non-prepping family. Those …

Suppressed Prepper Rifles

Ricky Bryant has not used a regular hunting rifle for years.  By regular he means a standard hunting rifle with a factory barrel.  Why?  Because Bryant of Clinton, Mississippi is owner and operator of BMS Machine short for Bryant’s Machine Shop on Highway 80 East in Clinton.  What Ricky probably does not realize is that his shop is making an excellent rifle for prepping and survival work.  Quiet, mean, and effective. By Dr. John J. Woods, a contributing author to SHTFBlog & Survival Cache Among all the many machined parts for multiple industrial applications that BMS manufacturers in house, Ricky and his team including his mom and dad that work in the business also makes firearm …

Long Term Food Storage (Prepping) #4

Burying Guns & Ammo with MonoVault Burial Tubes

Whenever the headlines carry news of a new law that limits our 2nd Amendment rights, conversations will often come around to the subject of burying guns or creating a survival cache of some sorts.  If not firearms, people talk about burying silver and gold, ammunition, cash, important documents, even caching food storage or fuel on the path to a bug out location.  I even know of people who bury gear at their bug out location in the event it is compromised before they reach it. By Joe Nobody The Law While I know of no law that would prevent someone from stashing stacks of canned beans and birth certificates, one must be fully aware of the laws in his/her …

The Day The Lights Go Out And The Trucks Stop Running

What would happen if some sort of major national emergency caused a massive transportation disruption that stopped trucks from running?  The next time you talk to a trucker, please thank them for their service, because without their hard work none of our lives would be possible.  In America today, very few of us live a truly independent lifestyle, and that means that we rely on the system to provide what we need.  Most of us take for granted that there will always be plenty of goods at Wal-Mart and at the grocery store whenever we need more “stuff”, and most of us never give a second thought to how all of that “stuff” gets there.  Well, the truth is that most of it…

2 Years with a WORX 14? Electric Chain Saw

There are times when “You get what you pay for“, doesn’t hold water. In the case of a 14″ Electric Chainsaw by WORX, you get MORE. Well into a 2nd. year of hard service, buying this wood cutting powerhouse was money well spent. I had my doubts on a electric chainsaw, surely it can’t hold up too long, but after several good-sized tree-falls, and yards of firewood, the saw is just as sure & efficient as the day I pulled it out of the box. My yard is full of trees. That means I’m cutting up deadfalls, loping off branches, and harvesting firewood a lot. Over the years I’ve burned out two gas chainsaws, each time cussing them …

Converting .223 rifle to .300 Blackout in 2 Steps: Part 1

The .300 Blackout is an effective round that bridges some of the wide gap between a .223 and a .308 as well as allowing an AR15 platform rifle to encroach on the ballistics territory of the venerable AK 47.  Plus the 300 BLK has the benefit of easily going subsonic making it about as quiet as possible given the mechanical noise of operating a rifle’s action.  Adding to the quiet excitement is that the difference between a traditional AR15 in .223/5.56 and one in 300 BLK is little more than a barrel swap. That’s right, everything else might be interchangeable between the two. By Doc Montana, a …

Prepper Pocket Pistols

The essential idea behind a pocket pistol is to carry it concealed on your person in the event of immediate need.  During an active SHTF event, a prepper-survivalists may have multiple opportunities to engage their pocket pistol for a wide variety of reasons.  It might be needed to get out of the office and home or out of the driveway to get on the road toward your Bug Out destination.  It may be needed to thwart a threat at the front door or in the parking lot. By Dr. John J. Woods, a contributing author to SHTFBlog & Survival Cache When things go south during a natural or unnatural event, self-defense and family/team protection can quickly become a top priority…

SHTF Armorer: Magazine Maintenance – Part 1

The AR-15.  AK-47.  M1A.  Glock 17.  SIG Sauer P226.  Colt 1911.  S&W M&P.  CZ-75.  Beretta 92.  Ruger 10/22.  H&K MP5.  Walther P22.  All of these firearms each have an army of diehard pundits in the firearms world.  You probably have at least one of them incorporated in your SHTF plans.  It’s possible your very life and chances of survival will depend on one of these some day.  However, they all have a common weakness, a vulnerability that can reduce these fine pieces of weaponry to single-shot, barely useful clubs: the detachable magazine.

Prepper Uses For A Range Finder

Andy was pulling duty on bug out perimeter security.  We had heard shots coming from the woods at the far west end of our prep team property.  This was not an unusual occurrence out in the rural area where we have planned our long term bug out existence.  None-the-less it is always discomforting not knowing who might be unlawfully accessing your property lines.  He left out on his Honda ATV to scout the end of the road line which was roughly two miles west from our camp area and cabins.
