Wendesday's Websites of the Week - May 22nd, 2019


Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,



Introduction
There are many sources of information for you and your family to use in your quest to learn about prepping and its related skills. Some of them local, like the town's library or the adult education office at the local community college. Some may be regional, such as the county agriculture extension service office and a larger cities' art and history museums. On a national scale, information sources like a national library, national archives, or the nation's military is available to you and your family.

Additionally, ...

With the explosion of the internet, thirty years ago, other sources have opened up to you and your family. Sources such as blogs, videos, websites, and many others, and that is the reason for this Wednesday blurb, to provide new and old sources of information to you and your family from the internet.

So, ...



Mental Preparations

Ha, Ha, Ha
Laugh all you want.

But, ...

Remember, there are some folks that want to destroy everyhting you and your family have ever created.

Last week, I highlighted some articles about shotguns that got me to thinking.

So, ...

870 or 500
The two most popular 12 gauge shotguns, in these United States, are the Mossberg Model 500-series and the Remington Model 870.

Which one is 'better?'

You will have to decide.

Moving Water
In so-called Developing Countries, women and children spend most of their day traveling to and from local water sources, preventing them from receiving an education, adding to the family's income, or developing other means of increasing the family's chances of survival.

Just think, what a family could accomplish if this requirement was eliminated.

Protection

Several Rifles for sale at a gun show (ca 2015)

Darknipples

For most families, you need two firearms, a handgun and a rifle. The handgun, either a revolver or a pistol, is used to protect your family, while the rifle is used to protect the country.

Well, ...

Some people are going to want another option, the shotgun.

Scatterguns
Now, .. Don't get me wrong. I think a shotgun is a poor, a very poor, choice as a defensive weapon.

A shotgun is long, so it's tough to conceal. It has a strong recoil, so it's tough for everyone in the family to use. The shotgun has limited magazine capacity, so you have to reload it, a lot.

There is more to protecting your family, during tough times, then just buying a firearm and carrying it. You need to practise what you are going to do with it when you do have to use it.

If you haven't seen the video of an armed woman protecting a group of children and mothers, you need to go see the vid, at the link.

Are you back?

First, .. What did you notice?

* The woman waited until she had a clear shot, including the background

* She got close, real close

* She moved to cover, after the shot

Comment
Anonymous said, ...
One additional observation after reading the story accompanying the video: she was trained.
 
In her case, she was an off-duty military police officer. Which means she was trained and had practiced for similar scenarios.
 
We can't all be military police officers. But we can get in a little training and lots of practice.
