If you drive quickly, you’ll end up hitting someone. That will make you an enemy of the mob, and they’ll target you.

Some websites are dedicated to this as well. No need to have a clunky old scanner unless the internet is out.

Secondly, many police agencies are moving towards encrypted radio transmission like the military. The purpose is to avoid traffic and tactics being picked up by the average joe. It’s mostly used when raiding underage drinking parties to prevent flight, serving warrants, swat team deployment, and of course for crazy stuff like this. But as technology improves (and the ability to listen in with it) more agencies are moving towards encryption for every-day regular police work. Some smart people out there aren’t far behind decoding the airwaves though.

@ the author: why do you suggest driving at a crawl through the mob? I would think that only allows people more time to get swings in at the vehicle, and enrage them as you feebly attempt to push them out of the way. If caught in a mob I would plow through the crowd until free and claim I was fearing for my life if the police investigated it.

Comment on Lights out by brian xhttp://www.theprepperjournal.com/2014/12/19/lights/#comment-19873 Sat, 20 Dec 2014 19:02:42 +0000 http://www.theprepperjournal.com/?p=12416#comment-19873 from what I remember of my electronics training, you are partially right. The pulse induces current into a circuit, just like the magnetic field of a generator does. For large, heavy duty circuits anything that opens the circuit (unplugging it switching off) defeats this. So say an unplugged toaster would be fine. The problem is circuits in transformers don’t get unplugged. And circuits on microchips are so fragile and interconnected that it will burn them out easily.

So much better than the colloidal silver one.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t EMPs only destroy electronics that are turned on? I don’t know where I picked that up, but for at least 10-15 years I’ve had it in my head that everything that’s turned off when the EMP strikes will turn on just fine (so long as there’s power).

Comment on Selecting the Right Holster for the Job by Thomas Paine in the butthttp://www.theprepperjournal.com/2014/11/29/selecting-right-holster-job/#comment-19806 Sat, 20 Dec 2014 02:57:37 +0000 http://www.theprepperjournal.com/?p=12122#comment-19806 I used oil tanned latigo, rivets and milspec snaps on the belt loops. I patterned it with the idea to smooth the lines of the weapon under clothing. I also used a forward cant to make drawing easier from the seated position. By using belt loops instead of a flap it give me more flexibility in positioning the piece.

Primarily what I make is medieval armor for reenactors so the holster’s build to take a beating.
