A machete is essentially a jungle survival tool. It can also be employed as a self defense weapon. The saw back features of the Gerber may help extend the use of this tool beyond the tropics. Because it is an inexpensive tool, I recommend that all preppers own at least on machete. The Gerber would be a great choice. It’s an excellent quality tool.
Since moving to Florida about 18 years ago, I have extensive experience with a machete. It’s a tool that is used quit a bit in South Florida to keep plants from getting out of control. Even though I have experience with a machete, and can employ it as a weapon, I am not a machete expert. Who is?
The various features of a machete will determine its function and ability to double as an improvised weapon. Although the machete can improvise as a weapon, it is vastly out shadowed in that role by a good sword. One tip, don’t bring a Machete to a gun fight.
Just so you know, preppers can have fun. We are not paranoid and prepping every minute of our lives. I live an extremely healthy lifestyle, but everyone in a while I let loose and enjoy a little Tequila and a cigar or two.
The Savage Axis is a decent gun out of the box, so what’s the deal?
Turn your Savage Axis into a sub-minute competition match rifle for a few hundred bucks and some gunsmith skills. This ability to customize the Axis is turning the rifle into a cult classic. And hundreds of people are joining the club.
The key to the Savage Axis is quality. The receiver it top shelf for the money. It’s incredibly inexpensive. Add a barrel, build a stock, and tweak the trigger and you have a competition gun. Well maybe there’s a little more to it than that. But in real terms, the Savage is a relatively easy gun to work on.
Nutnfancy did a review on the Savage Axis Rifle. I wrote a comment that a friend of mine customized the Axis and turned them into match grade rifles. Well here’s a video of 4 different Axis rifles customized.
Most of the rifles were purchased at Walmart for under $300 and customized for a few hundred dollars in parts. For a total cost of between $400 and $500 including the price of the rifle.
