Re: Deep in the Outback with an Aussie Doomsday Preppier

Actually the concept of prepping becoming hip entertains the heck out of me.

Just for the look on the face of ideological prepper when hipster Barry and his boyfriend are doing it better.

Re: Deep in the Outback with an Aussie Doomsday Preppier

Good article.

The concept of prepping as a practical concern rather than ideological is kind of an important one to keep focus of.

Re: This is what I have, any suggestions?

I wonder what it would cost to print a map on to a bandanna? I LOVE IT! :D https://burntpointlodge.com/products/silk-maps That's a pretty rudimentary map. If you zoom for the detail. You can't see trails and roads until you get into a very small area. I would not rely on that. Your better off print...

Re: Most Effective School of Martial Arts

MMA or its equivalent gives you the most options to train live and at real speed the sorts of things you will encounter in a fight. So even say if you just did boxing. MMA would let you asses that against someone who is also kicking and grabbing you. That way you will have some sort of exposure to ...

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shootings

You have some great points here, and I"d like to address a few. Looking at how many people are in prison. And how much crime there is. How many people police shoot. All effect peoples liberty. Crime is a result of 1) culture, 2) access to victims, and 3) detection of criminals. Of those, detection ...

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shootings

If I wanted to prevent mass shootings or terrorism I would find countries that have been successful in doing that and model that system after theirs. I guess. Although the US is actually 56th in the world in per capita mass shootings. That is excluding a lot of things like wars and insurgencies. No...

Re: You are the target of a riot

I worked the g 20 summit as a security guard. And to avoid being a target we went all cloak and dagger.

So we would dress up in crappy clothes and sneak in and out of secret entrances.

Some clarification. During the attack at the Linwood Islamic Centre, Abdul Aziz distracted the shooter before scaring him away. Aziz screamed at the attacker, threw a credit card machine at the gunman when he went to get one gun, engaged in a cat-and-mouse chase with the shooter and threw a shotgun...

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shootings

New Zealand is already looking at changing their firearm laws after this event, similar to what Australia did after Port Arthur. I hope that any new law minimizes disruptions to an excellent, friendly and courteous shooting community. A focus on accountability would probably get the most bang for b...
