  • Concrete Canvas is a nifty invention, and this building really does go up with just an air pump and some water, but north of $25,000, there are better buys for a more sound fallout shelter.Prepping 101: Inflatable Concrete Buildings & Other Fallout Shelter Missives
    Answer:A $25,000 inflatable concrete building. Just add water. Question: What is a Concrete Canvas Shelter?Believe it or not, this is not a joke, and when I encountered this product it reminded me that I have been meaning to discuss the qualifications for a proper nuclear fallout shelter for some time. But I have to admit, of all the survival preparations I’ve written about for this column, this is one of very few I have not actually worked out for myself. That is why I found this product so interesting.
  • The new Benelli 828U over and under shotgun.Benelli 828U--The Future of the Over-Under Shotgun
    Over and under shotguns have been around for quite some time and have changed relatively little over the decades. Cosmetically, the Benelli 828U looks like a slightly more space age take on the classic double, but the under the hood features are what stand out as the unique elements of this shotgun.
  • The exagerated loop on the lever allows for more freedom of movement during fast shots, and the option of wearing gloves during winter.Henry Frontier Carbine Evil Roy Edition
    When I pulled this gun out of its unassuming box, I was predisposed to like it. Lever action rifles are fun--even more so when they're chambered in .22 LR. But then I shot the gun. I don't know what kind of magic Henry is using to produce these guns, but I like it! This may be the best range experience I've had this year.
  • All the beauty and grace of a full-sized P30 - now in a Sub-Kompact fun size!Heckler & Koch P30SK: A Carry Gun You’ll Want to Carry to the Range!
    The H&K P30SK is a dynamic little gun. As the hype builds over the perfect 9mm for concealed carry, H&K's latest entry snuck in this summer with very little fanfare. Yet this is a gun that's easy to shoot, which makes training easy--yet it is still ideal for carry. Check out our review.
  • Coincidence? Hmmmm.......Sig Sauer's SRD762Ti-QD .308 Rifle Silencer
    Is there anything Sig doesn't make? Their guns have a dedicated following among those who appreciate indestructible tools. And their silencers are just as robust. Today we're looking at their 7.62 suppressors. Got a .308 you want to tone down? This might be your can.
  • The XM42.  In your opinion, is it fit for public consumption?The XM42 Flamethrower-What Freedom Looks Like
    I have been trying to get my hands on a flamethrower since 1995, which was the year in which I found out that there are no state or federal laws regulating their purchase. And now I have one. The XM42 is something to see, and even more fun when you're behind the trigger.
  • I was charging my phone very quickly, with no hiccups at all.Prepping 101: Electric Rocket Stove Chargers - Biolite, Power Pot, Devil Watt Thermoelectric Generators
    Thermoelectric generators are not a new technology. “TEG” power was discovered in 1821, but I have to admit, it is new to me. I recently discovered three consumer products that create electricity from direct heat, and all three of them have survival applications. One of them is the best bugout or camp stove I have ever encountered, and I would take it one step further and say that it is the best bugout cooking solution I have ever encountered, period. A second is made for generating electricity while you cook your dinner, and I had marginal success with it. The third is made for a high level of direct heat electricity production, and you can drive it from your rocket stove, a camp stove, and they have models from 10 watts up to 100 watts that use waste heat from your wood stove.
