    Gobsmacked!!!

    I recently started a discussion on Reddit (I have since cancelled my registration!) regarding the lack of support shown to muzzle-loader owners by the rest of the firearms community. As an example I mentioned that I had started a petition to have reproduction flintlock, wheellock & matchlock...

    The Whys & Wherefores Of Survival Hunting.

    First of all I must explain that I am not a sporting shooter, I only hunt for food or in order to kill a feral predator. Hunting for food is a lot different to hunting for sport. When you are hunting for food, especially in a survival situation, it is vitally important that you bring home the...

    What Are Your Personal Defence Weapons/tools

    What are your personal defence weapons? This is NOT what you would like to have or prefer to have, this means what have you got right now put by for a TEOTWAWKI should it ever happen. I have been giving some thought as to what we could be up against. Most of the guns out there are probably in...

    The Flintlock Muzzle-loader Versus The Modern Breach-loader For Long Term Wilderness Living.

    The Flintlock Muzzle-Loader Versus the Modern Breach-Loader for long term wilderness living. The advantages of the breach-loader 1) The breach-loader is easy to load, & repeaters are fast to reload. 2) Some rifles are accurate over a long distance. 3) The shotgun is fairly versatile but...

    All About Flintlocks. Part Four. Wet Weather Hunting.

    Obviously I avoid hunting in wet weather, but sometimes it id necessary. Some people naturally assume that you can not use a flintlock when it is raining, but this is not the case. Gunpowder will attract moisture, but really it is not as drastic as often portrayed. There are three things you...

    All About Flintlocks. Part Two.

    A lot of people when they first venture into the world of muzzleloaders choose to purchase a percussion lock muzzle-loader. There is nothing wrong in this, these percussions work just fine. The only reasons I prefer a flintlock over a percussion is because the percussion requires caps to make...

    All About Flintlocks. (by Request). Part One.

    There is a certain amount of skill & knowledge that goes into using a flintlock muzzle-loading arm to make it function satisfactorily. I won't say my flintlocks have never misfired, they have, but the problem was easily fixed. I must also say that I had had as many misfires from the...

    Flintlock Muzzle-loading Guns, Rifles & Pistols.

    This post is in response to earlier requests for more information on firearms. I do NOT consider my guns to be weapons, I think of them as tools, but of course they can be used for defence as well as hunting & in the case of a flintlock, the lock can be used to make fire. My .32 caliber...

    Compromise.

    I have noticed that few preppers are actually prepared to list the equipment that they have in their B.O.B. I am not sure why this is. "When packing for the trail there must be a compromise between two principles; minimum weight & maximum self reliance". I wonder how many preppers actually...

    When Is It Too Late?

    It is too late to acquire sufficient supplies, provisions & equipment as soon as shtf news reaches the public. Some people have the idea that when it all goes down, this is the best time for looting. WRONG! Everyone will be grabbing what they can, supermarket shelves will empty in minutes, not...

    Some Of My Weapons/tools.

    I prefer to refer to my guns & blades as tools rather than weapons, but of course they serve equally well for defence as they do for hunting. I prefer 18th century equipment because it is robust, practicle & sustainable. I do own modern firearms, but for long term survival I depend on my 18th...

    My Survival Tools For Hunting & Defence.

    I live off grid in a forest, & I hope to stay here even if we are faced with a TEOTWAWKI survival situation. We have friends & family who are all trained in various skills & we are well equipped with modern firearms & primitive hunting tools. But, we are also prepared to leave here & move...
