I usually order CR123s from Surefire. Always had good luck with Orbtronic 18650 batteries, too.

Re: The Coming Civil War

True, conversely most active shooters and political assassins have a small social footprint. Perhaps the ones we need to worry more about are the ones reading all the leading commentary and drinking it all in. My late FiL was one of those people who seemed to think if someone took the time to write...

Re: The Coming Civil War

There are a lot of fire breathers and blowhards on social media, which is why I'm not on it. I know literally no one among my real world friends, family, or acquaintances that wants a civil war, or seriously believe one is coming. Although quite a few would be prepared to confront anyone who came in...

Continue to prep, but whatever you do find a copy of this new book. That "new book" was written in the early '70s and claimed The Rapture (and Great Tribulation) were imminent. Still waiting (drums fingernails)... People who take the Book of Revelations at face value have been saying the End is Nea...

Re: Is the End Nigh?

To some extent "doom fatigue" has set in. Following the 2008 financial crash, where the collapse of the global financial system seemed like a very real prospect, interest in preparedness peaked. Since then we've managed to muddle through, year after year, and maybe complacency has set in. However, t...

Re: The Coming Civil War

Yeah not so much. The author is a unrepentant socialist. I've read Chris Hedge's stuff for years, and think he's a brilliant thinker and rare journalist with integrity. So while I may not agree with him across the board - I'm more libertarian-conservative politically - I think it's paramount that r...

I'm seeing more and more "How to survive civil unrest" articles on prepper-themed sites. Of course there's always a marketing angle.

I could see it as more of like The Troubles, in so far as the violence would play out. It's a pretty long article, in part because it went on for so long. Irish Republicanism is a good part of the history of Ireland. Personally, I think we should be talking about positive actions that we as individ...

Re: The Coming Civil War

The key concern that I have is that there appears to be a larger percentage of people who simply want to see us burn than in the 1960s. Most of the people in my social circle are parents, like me. I don't know of a single person with kids (or without, for that matter) who wants to see a civil war o...
