    In a survival situation you can't take anything for granted. Cleanliness is absolutely required, and soap is something you already should be storing in decent quantities. You don't have to make it yourself, but I just realized that I might as well share how to do it. I've been making soap for over a decade and my only warning about making soap is that if you plan to give some to your friends and family, don't, unless you want to start a free soap business. Homemade, cold process soap made from vegetable oils will eliminate most dry skin issues, and used as shampoo, it will do away with the need for dandruff shampoo. Believe it or not, I've even had reports from friends that it gets rid of hemorrhoids. Soap is an interesting product because you aren't allowed to advertise it with any health claims, but suffice it to say that store bought soap just isn't the same as homemade.

    PTR 91 Wood Classic KRPTR 91 Wood Classic KR – New Gun Review
    The .308 battle rifle is making a comeback. Ruger released their SR762 to high praise. Colt's modular 901 can accept uppers in .308 and .223. The AR10 is still alive and kicking, and rocking throwbacks, like Springfield Armory's MiA line, manage to be both nostalgic and innovative. What is it about the hard-hitting 7.62 x 51 that makes it so appealing? Wasn't the high-pitched crack of the AR-15 sound the death knell of oversized, overweight, overkill? Apparently not. There's more staying power in the old-school battle rifle than the slew of 5.56 rifles would have us believe. None of this is news to the fans of the H&K G3. Yet import restrictions make the G3, and the H&K 91 (the civilian version of the G3) hard to come by stateside. Don't give up hope. At the upcoming SHOT show in January 2014, PTR will launch a new version of the Classic Wood 91, the KR. The K is for Kurz, which refers to the 16-inch barrel. The R denotes a welded rail. With a shorter barrel and a rail, the new iteration will appeal to those who respect the classic look of an old G3. It will also speak to those who want a hard-hitting CQB rifle with manageable length and the option to more easily add optics. If you are looking for heavyweight precision, with just a hint of German engineering, take a good long look at the PTR 91. These American-made 91s are taking the iconic H&K design to new levels of precision and reliability.

    The Walker is a modern reproduction of a piece of American History. It is a sidearm you could carry during black powder season. It is an exaggerated wild west gun that is as much fun to handle and hold as it is to shoot, maybe more. And it is a revolver capable of .357 like ballistics that you can buy without filling out a 4473. It's all of these things, I think, which makes it so compelling. On with the review~

    ebola-graphicPrepping 101: Ebola in the US! - 100% Prevention & Treatment
    We know how viruses spread. If you stay in your house and don't have contact with other humans, it is impossible to get a virus. Viruses need a host organism, therefore they cannot be spread through water supplies, especially chlorinated water supplies which most of us drink. Out in public, Ebola can most likely spread through the air, from sneezing or coughing, but there are simple precautions you can take if you absolutely must go out to the store, which I will get into below. Treating Ebola is a crapshoot at this point, but I will explain the splintered logic as to what your options are should you contract the disease.

    The POF-5 may look like your run-of-the-mill MP5 knock-off, but it isn't. These economical imports are versatile contenders. We've put 4,000 rounds through these two with only 5 hiccups. Even when they're filthy, they keep kicking out brass (and steel). They're pistols, but a simple arm brace makes them even more effective. Check out our review.

    The Remington 700 Ultimate Muzzleloader is unlike any front loader I have had my hands on. The bolt-action front loader is as close to a Remington 700 as you can get, which should open more doors for early season hunters who may have doubts about muzzleloaders. But is it the ultimate, hard hitting, long range early-season hunting gun?

    Less than a decade ago the standard for military assaulters was a 2.5 inch thick super stiff belt, to which you attached your pistol and pistol mags. Usually with duct tape. They were heavy, uncomfortable, and had a bad habit of rubbing your body raw when you wore them over 2 hours. In short, they sucked, but they were all we had. You don’t know what you are missing until you get an awesome piece of gear. And the VTAC Brokos is that.
