  • vlcsnap-error354#Prepping101 - Bug Out Weapon Legal 50 States - The Pocket Shot - Field Test Review
    In the survival world some products are in a class by themselves. I decided that this would be the case with a new discovery I made last week called "The Pocket Shot." Originally I had intended to cover slingshots and slingshot arrow shooting contraptions, and in my travels I discovered The Pocket Shot, but when it got here I quickly realized that it deserved its own space. The Pocket Shot is really just a thick rubber balloon, held by a plastic ring. But this simple device is not a toy, and a serious weapon. It fires standard slingshot balls, and there is a full arrow kit. As something that you can slip into a bugout bag, where nobody would even suspect that it is a weapon, I don't think that The Pocket Shot has an equal.

    This MasterPiece Arms (MPA) rifle is impressive. When I opened the box of this puppy at my FFL, I floated into a state of rifle euphoria. And, the fact that it is from a company that made its name producing semi-automatic versions of stamped sheet steel SMGs makes it all the more impressive.

  • vlcsnap-error958Prepping 101: $4 Firestarter Disk From China - Field Test
    This week I'm just sharing a pretty cool find with you guys that I scored on a website called Banggood. It's about the dumbest name for a retail website ever, but they do a good deal of advertising on Facebook and I've ordered from them before. A couple weeks ago this nifty little fire starting disk came up on my ads, and I just assumed I'd order it and it wouldn't work.

  • The stripped down to the basics, the Expanse gives shooters an M4-style AR with the pony on the side and at an affordable price. Image courtesy of the manufacturer.A Sub-$700 Colt M4? The 5.56mm Colt Expanse. Full Review.
    While it seems like just about everybody is making the AR, the name Colt still carries a lot of weight when it comes to this design. They were the “first” in the minds of many civilian shooters, and the company has a long history of producing the design’s martial sibling for the U.S. military. And now, with the M4 Expanse, Colt is offering a great gun at a great price.
