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.

The mudjam is a great place to view and inquire about the details of building a bug out vehicle capable of operating effectively off road. There were so many potential bug out vehicle BOV concepts that it boggles the mind. If you are a prepper, you certainly can see the potential capabilities that these vehicles have. You are also aware of the need for a bug out vehicle.

The Saint Lucie Mudjam 2013 is located in Saint Lucie County, Florida. It is a 3 day event held on 500 acres. The event featured mud racing, mud bogs, music, camping, bonfires, and a great time for everyone. The girls cialis est il en vente libre en espagne got a little “wild” at night.

This is a great place to view and inquire about the details of building a bug out vehicle capable of operating effectively off road.

Because I messed up and ran my batteries down, I only video taped part of the races, and a few vehicles in the parking area. I did not shoot the Mud Bogs, music, bonfire and other wild events. Hope you enjoy the vid and hope to see you there next time.

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

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.
