    Equipment Finds At Car Boot Sales & Second Hand Shops.

    This is where you share your "finds", lonewolf has reminded us that we should not dismiss the idea of purchasing second hand goods & that it is also possible to find new gear at lower prices at car boot sales & second hand shops. What have you found & what did it cost?

    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...

    19th Century Alaskan Trapper's Supplies List.

    In winter in Alaska there would not be much if any edible flora to forage, & the intense cold demands more food, so this list of supplies is to cater to that particular situation. But I thought some of you may be interested in seeing this list. Keith. A More Complete Supply List After my...

    Choosing The Right Blade.

    Choosing the Right Blade. A knife is not meant to be used for splitting wood, knives have specific uses. If you have heavier work to do then you carry a tomahawk or belt axe. The hunting knife. A hunting knife needs to have a blade of at least 6 inches. It should be made with the blade &...

    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...

    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...

    Look To The Past To Survive.

    I know that many do not agree with my views on this, & that is okay. But I thought I would share some images of an 18th century Living History event to give you something to think about. In my opinion these are the sorts of people/groups you need to get in with if you intend bugging out. They...

    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...
