This is part two of the “World’s Greatest Survival Vest” In part two, the concept of Urban Survival is highlighted. As a prepping/survival instructor, I teach both Urban Survival and Bugging Out.

Let me help you face reality by exposing the secrets, myths, and truth about Urban Survival.

One of the difficulties of Urban Survival is trying not to draw too much attention. Ideally you don’t want to be seen. The current myth is to be a “gray man” and blend in. In reality, depending on the scenario, blending in could be practically impossible.

In the worse case scenario, being an Urban Survivalist is not as easy as many preppers and instructors want you to believe. Urban Survival is a challenge that will take extraordinary skills.

Some well known gun instructors in South Florida have jumped on the Urban Survival bandwagon. For the most part they are pretty much idiots. Unfortunately, I know them and they are pretty pathetic, but they are a fortune for their classes and are raking in the dough.  The saddest part is that there are a few people who come from out of state to hear his hype.  Although he claims to have inside government secrets and military expertise, he is little more than a  blowhard.  Not the best shooter either.

The point of warning you about various instructor is to help you hang

on to your wallet, and to start engaging common sense.

One of my missions when I teach prepping/survival is to help individual face reality by expose the secrets, myths, and truth about Urban Survival.

Prepper College Forum

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.

“Are You Ready to Bug Out” is a song I put together. It’s a reminder to get it together before the SHTF. The song is interlaced with scenes from a Tea Party march and some photos of Patriot Prepper. In light of the current White House

scandal, the reality of a government that lies to citizens and attempts to cover it up should be a wake up call. The scandalous actions of the IRS are proof that they cannot be trusted to run a health care system. (ipad users can view video – youtube

This video is intended to be entertaining and taken lightly, but also to meant to be sure you are diligent, watchful, and ready to stand by your Country. The video is also intended to be a reminder to be ready to bug out if the SHTF. So Keep on Prepping.

All citizens who want to remain free and not become subjects to a tyrannical government need to study history and the lessons given by our founding fathers. Those who love America need to unite and continuously fight for our freedom. God Bless America – Long Live the Republic.

KA-BAR Fighting/Survival Knife the Standard of Excellence by Patriot Prepper

I love the KA-BAR and have owned a small collection of them as a small kid. They are great knives. In fact, the KA-BAR is a standard of excellence by which I cialis generique judge other survival defensive knives.

The KA-BAR is a proven knife that has been used in combat and survival situations since adopted by the United States Marine Corps in November 1942 as the 1219C2 combat knife (later designated the USMC Mark 2 combat knife or Fighting Utility Knife).

In my top 3 survival tools video, I precios de la viagra en farmacias compared the KA-BAR to other knives and choose the Cold Steel Recon Scout as the knife I would carry with me. This does not discredit the KA-BAR. I would very easily and successfully use a KA-BAR to fulfill any and all prepping needs. However, reality dictates that there are other and better knife choices for specific purposes and needs.

If your prepping budget does not allow for more expensive knives, consider the KA-BAR as your choice of blades. As stated it is proven. It is a

knife that works. It is a knife that will not let

you down. The Ka Bar is a great and classic knife.

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

The Kershaw Tactical Package. Another great Walmart special holiday priced deal.

Kershaw has bundled a flashlight, tactical pen, and a knife into one hard to beat package for the holidays. As many of you know, I love Kershaw brand and use their knives on a daily basis, including EDC. Along with another defensive knife, a Kershaw travels with me at all times. It is hard to beat their quality at their price point.

Kershaw makes great knives along with its ZT Zero Tolerance line. I love both brands and use them as defensive everyday carry.

This package is hard to beat and I highly recommend that you take a look at it and scoop one up.

In this video, I show how I use a machete both as a Chopping Tool and a Self Defense Weapon. Don’t bring a machete to a gun fight! This video is also a review of the Gerber Gator machete.

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.
