Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,
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.
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.

|Several Rifles for sale at a gun show (ca 2015)|
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.
Some people are going to want another option, the shotgun.
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.
