In part one of the World’s Greatest Survival Vest, you are shown how useful a survival vest can be. In part two,

the use of a survival vest in a urban survival situation will be covered. In part three, we will compare a survival vest to a tactical vest.

A survival vest is part of a system. When implemented with key components on your belt, and in your pockets, the vest will provide you with all the tools you need in a survival situation – especially if you are separated from your backpack. A survival vest is about redundancy, having more than you need and following the philosophy that two is one, and one is none.

The World’s Greatest Survival Vest is made by Allen, and s a tough vest with multiple pockets and compartments. It holds plenty of gear. It is made well out of a material that does not sag and can handle a heavy load.  I overloaded the vest with tons of survival gear for illustration purposes. The gear you see is not exactly what I might carry.  In part two, I have a different load out.

The survival vest (Allen Big Horn fishing vest) can also be utilized with a day pack or a full size backpack or military ruck. The vest rides high and does not interfere with the waist best on a pack.

The World’s Greatest Survival Vest offers another option for survivalists, backpackers, and preppers.

Part two will highlight the survival vest in an urban survival setting. Part three will contrast and compare the survival vest to a tactical vest.

Thanks for watching

Sometimes I get tired of the negativity around me. There are plenty of people in the world, on forums, and youtube, who are impossibility thinkers. To them, if they can’t do it, they think it’s impossible. Well I’m a possibility thinker. I do what I set out to do and don’t let things deter me. I encourage preppers https://www.viagrasansordonnancefr.com/viagra-cialis/ to think positive.

Along with thinking positive and being a levitra uk next day possibility thinker, I try to be thankful and grateful in all circumstances.

Survival is more of an attitude than a collection of gear and equipment. I have designed and build elaborate survival retreats. However, if the individuals do not train, have negative attitudes, they will not prix moyen cialis 10mg survive.

With the right mind set, the right attitude, you can and will survive.

God bless you,

When preppers get together, its inevitable that they will engage in the “bugging out” conversation. This entails discussions of bug out bags, bug out gear, bug out strategies and tactics, bug out vehicles, and bug out locations.

These conversations can be pretty interesting and enlightening. The conversations can also be frustrating for some beginning preppers who start to realize how https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/viagra-online/ much they

still have to do. The amount of preparation that is needed to bug out can be daunting. In fact, many preppers freak out and start thinking they will simply bug in or shelter in place and choose to be urban survivalists.

Bugging in or sheltering in place can be an acceptable option, and for some people their only option. But giving up on a bug out plan and strategy should not be your reason for choosing to bug in. Bugging out has some real advantages over bugging in, or urban survival. So before you decide to bug in or bug out, you really need to learn a great deal more.

My own strategy is to bug out, but I have also become an expert at bugging in. Depending on circumstances, I will have the skill sets and supplies to stay or go – to bug in or bug out. And that is the option that I teach. Be able to do both.

Since this is a forum on bugging out, I will give you some insights into what you need to know and start posting more material on the subject. But keep in mind, reading about it and not acting is worthless. Having a road map in your car will not transport you to your destination. You need to take action by starting the car and driving towards the destination. The same with prepping and bugging out, information is the beginning step. Then you need to start applying the information.

When I teach classes, I start by sharing information. Then I move into the hands on part of a course, where you actually have a chance to apply the knowledge. This method I use for self defense and firearm training, survival training, and prepper training. Knowledge and practice are what develop a skill set.

So if you are a beginning prepper, do not be frustrated. Learning how to do anything including bugging out is a simple step by step process. Like eating an elephant, you do it one bite at a time.

Sincerely,

Here’s a video of me in the North Carolina mountains at my getaway house. This is not my survival retreat. (ipad users can view video at: youtube video

A thank you to all my subscribers who have been patient. Have been in the mountains camping, backpacking, practicing survival skills, shooting, and prepping.

I have not posted in over 5 months. This is a blog update for my subscribers to keep them informed. The North Carolina mountain house is just a fun getaway house and location – it is not my survival retreat.

My schedule have been hectic and blogging has not been a top priority, but I plan to do more. I have a lot of survival gear, firearms, knives, and other stuff to review. Also want to share survival, prepping, tactical defense skills, and other skills.

I appreciate your support and plan on doing more blogging. Thank You

Smith & Wesson Knife is acknowledged https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/vente-viagra/ as one of the greatest gun makers in the world. But how do Smith & Wesson knives stack up when compared to other blades? In this in-depth review, Patriot Prepper gives you the low down on S & W knives.

Patriot Prepper owns over 30 Smith and Wesson knives and has used some of them on a daily basis. With the low cost of their knives, it is possible to have multiple blades to place in bug out bags, vehicles, your home, and your retreat.

Smith & Wesson knives are designed for tactical use, but are highly usable in a utility role. In the personal opinion of Patriot Prepper, the quality of S & W knives are not on par with S & W guns. They are very good knives but not exceptional.

The designs are pleasing, the features very good, but consistency

in the quality control leave the knives lacking when it compares to S & W greatness. With a little effort, the blades could be tweaked by S & W into a high end competitive blade. But what the heck, S & W blades are priced RIGHT!

In there niche, S & W seem to own the market, with few competitors competing in their price bracket with all the ruggedness and features of their knives. This of course could be disputed.

All and all, the knives in this review can be rated overall between 6 and 7 points on a 10 scale. They are very good knives.

On a price/value ratio, the knives rate higher, due to their low cost. For value, the knives are rated 9 on average.

Patriot Prepper loves S & W knives and believe they could fulfill the needs of a prepper who is on a budget. They are rugged, durable, and will perform when needed.

God Bless

There has been a little confusion over what Survival Nutrition is. It is not vegetarianism, or anti meat. It is an advanced nutritional program, designed to sustain life and health under extreme conditions like Teotwawki.

It you are a real prepper, and you preparing for, and want to survival Teotwawki then you need to view Survival Nutrition with an open mind.

Several times a year I go on a 5 day survival expedition with minimal gear and no food. If you are interested, I will offer a Survival Challenge and try to organize a meet up where you can join me and attempt to live under harsh conditions with minimal gear and not food for 5 days.

As a martial arts instructor and a 5 th degree Black Belt, discipline is vital to a persons ability to defend themselves. A great way to develop discipline is to overcome the hunger reflex. Let me help you gain mental, physical, and spiritual discipline. Join me for the Survival Challenge.

I have been busy designing and building Gen 4™ prepper retreats. This video is a intro to the Gen 4 Design concept. I have the opportunity to publish a book on retreat design and construction. It will be a matter of finding the time to write it and also compile the information into a useable format.

The Gen 4 Design is my proprietary design and part of my complete system of prepping. It offers the utmost in security and defendability.

Reality dictates that there is no fail safe method of survival or defense of a person or a retreat. All we can do is attempt to minimize our risks and exposures by building into the retreat as many defense elements as possible.

As a bodyguard and a designer of retreats, I am highly aware of the shortcomings in both of these areas. In Executive Protection, if someone really wants to take out my client, by employing overwhelming force, there is little that can be done. All I can do is minimize the risk by building a defensive barrier for my clients protection that makes the bad guy use more resources to accomplish an attack. The same applies to retreats. By integrating multiple layers of defense mechanisms in the design and building of a retreat, I can minimize the risk of being overwhelmed as well as increase the probability of defending the retreat. That being said, there are no guarantees. Life is a game of probabilities.

I design retreats. Are they perfect? No. But they are, in my opinion, better than anything I have seen out there so far. I have put years of my life into designing and building retreats. Having grown up as a young boy working for my father, who was an excavator/land developer/builder, in some ways, I believe building retreats was part of my destiny.

I have been given the opportunity to write a book on the subject, it will be a major challenge. I hope I have the time and energy and can pass on my knowledge to other preppers before the SHTF.

A good defense will always have an element of offensive capability employed. Perimeter warning systems, patrols of property, LP/OP etc. will hopefully give ample warning time to employ an offensive team as well as a long range ability to defeat the threat. It is not wise to sit and wait for the enemy to start shooting at your dwelling. Everyone in our group trains several times a week. We employ movement into our fire team training as well as long range precision shooting. You can never train too much or be too prepared.

The best designed and built retreat will not be effective from a survival defense perspective unless the individuals are trained and disciplined. Skill and training are part of the package and are paramount.

Our dwelling also allow for a tactical withdrawal and retreat if we are overwhelmed. Also note that the main dwellings do not hold our supplies. Our supplies are all cached in various locations. It the enemy should breach our security and overwhelm us we would simply retreat. But they would inherit little more than an empty shell of a building.

Also note that anyone attempting to overtake the retreat will pay dearly. There are multiple layers of security features to give us ample warning to counter a threat. There are also barriers and traps that would be very costly to an intruder. An intruder would pay dearly and have to fight with blood to gain a foothold.

In a forum, someone asked what are your top three survival tools. Of course, we would not want to be in a survival situation with only three tools. But the question is a good mental exercise. And more importantly, having the three tools that I chose could save one’s life.

I chose a chose a survival knife, fire starting tool, and a water carrier.

Specifically: Cold Steel Recon Scout, Blast Match by Ultimate Survival Technologies, and the Backpacker water bottle by Guyot designs.

Every survival situation varies as to conditions and circumstances, and you may have a different choice than those items that I chose.

KEEP ON PREPPING

For many years, the message I have been telling everyone is to “keep on prepping.” There are several aspects to prepping, including getting yourself and your family ready for a SHTF situation. But there are other aspects as well.

What I have found over the span of 30 plus years of prepping is that you must never slack off. You must prep on a daily consistent basis. Don’t wait for the storm to draw near before you start prepping. Do it now. Keep on Prepping!

Preppers who prep at the calm points, before the storm, are able to get bargains. Those who hesitate, or wait, get stuck buying when a crisis has caused a spike in demand and price. Consistent preppers who prep an a daily basis as part of their lifestyle will come out ahead.

Another aspect of prepping that is encompassed in my “Keep on Prepping” philosophy and message is to help others along the way. Prepping is a way to help others become aware of a potential crises and to be ready. Preppers can also help others by teaching them prepper skills.

Today there are numerous preppers who are getting the message out and who are networking and promoting events to unite to create a cohesive community. I want to play a part in spreading the message, raising awareness, and teaching other to prep.

God bless everyone.
