Comment on Five Emergency Survival Tools by Still Watershttp://www.theprepperjournal.com/2014/10/21/five-emergency-survival-tools/#comment-12989 Thu, 23 Oct 2014 04:37:35 +0000 http://www.theprepperjournal.com/?p=11669#comment-12989 Just to clarify, I’m not necessarily slamming Bics. What I remember most though is that if left in your car during winter, it had to warm up considerably before your could get it to light. And repeatedly trying to strike a cold lighter would about 1/3 of the time result in the flint being expelled from the lighter. If left in the car during summer, the fluid would turn into a gas and escape leaving you with an empty lighter.

By all means, keep a bic handy for easy lighting, but don’t rely on it as your sole source of fire starting if it’s in a kit exposed to the elements like a get home bag stored in your car.

Comment on Five Emergency Survival Tools by Arthur Cookhttp://www.theprepperjournal.com/2014/10/21/five-emergency-survival-tools/#comment-12982 Thu, 23 Oct 2014 03:05:07 +0000 http://www.theprepperjournal.com/?p=11669#comment-12982 Over and over I see Bic Lighters praised by some and slammed by others. All know that the Butane they use will not ignite if it is too cold. May I suggest a better way if you have the room! A self igniting propane torch! Lots more fire power! Lots easier to start a wet wood fire! Many more uses such as a cook stove! Why use a pocket knife if you have access to a hunting knife?

Comment on Is it Crazy to Worry About the Golden Horde? by gmanhttp://www.theprepperjournal.com/2014/08/28/crazy-worry-golden-horde/#comment-12981 Thu, 23 Oct 2014 02:54:27 +0000 http://www.theprepperjournal.com/?p=11033#comment-12981 the horde will have seven components.

1a) the classic golden horde – strangers who have no idea of your status.

1b) the personal golden horde – relatives and neighbors who know what you have and where you are.

2) lucky individuals and beginning preppers who have guns and thirty days of food and who find you.

3) ad-hoc teams of lucky individuals and beginning preppers who have guns and thirty days of food and who find you.

4) displaced preppers. those who were prepared but have been driven from their homes and are now searching for yours. they know what to look for and how to find you.

5) libertarians and anarchists who will be on a mission to eliminate any remaining form of human organization they can find.

6) crazies. paranoids, murderers, psychotics, arsonists. they may be up-front crazy or they may infiltrate your group and murder you in your sleep. they will set random fires, take one or two sniping shots and then walk away, or leave out poisoned food or sabotaged ammo.

7) raiders. those who are prepping now to survive, not by storing or producing goods, but by taking yours. they already know all the resources in their area, including yours, and have infiltrated the major prepper groups, including yours. they will be based on racial gangs, sheriff’s departments, swat teams, reserve armory cadre, and former military units. they will have numbers, training, experience, mg’s, bmg’s, mortars, nvg, optics, fuel, comms, av’s, and perhaps even drones.

Comment on Is it Crazy to Worry About the Golden Horde? by Richardhttp://www.theprepperjournal.com/2014/08/28/crazy-worry-golden-horde/#comment-12973 Thu, 23 Oct 2014 02:04:05 +0000 http://www.theprepperjournal.com/?p=11033#comment-12973 Think about refugees then take a look at the UNHCR web site. Lets assume that you don’t trust them but the numbers are probably right. Think about troubles in the last 70 years and the vast numbers of people who just picked up and left. Think of Katrina. Think about the mass migrations during the late 1940s in China and when India and Pakistan divided. The movement of the Palestinians to Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria when Israel was formed. The vast movement of people in Cambodia after the Vietnam War. The refugees in Yugoslavia in the 90s. All of the refugees in Ruwanda during the time of the Tutses and the Hutus (sorry about the spelling). The refugees in Turkey from the current conflict in Syria. I am talking about tens of millions of people here. You might say that (except for Katrina) none of that happened in the West so it doesn’t matter. Maybe. Maybe their houses didn’t have electric lights but it was theirs and it was a roof and they picked up and left. In the event of an emergency is New York City going to send out government people in trucks to purchase food when there is no fuel for trucks and people who have food in the Midwest want to keep it? How does this work? Do you think that people in cities are just going to quietly starve to death? If you live in the country, are you prepared to bet your life on that?

Comment on The AK-47 vs AR-15: Which Rifle is Better? by Adrianhttp://www.theprepperjournal.com/2014/03/11/ak-47-vs-ar-15-which-rifle-is-better/#comment-12945 Wed, 22 Oct 2014 22:09:12 +0000 http://www.theprepperjournal.com/?p=6881#comment-12945 One thing I know because I’ve used both my ak and panther mk 12 on two week hikes in the big horns is that yes the ak is a beast of abuse and burden, but I still attempt to keep both said rifles from damage/dysfunction. The problem I’ve had is that my ar has jammed with cheap ammo, tul, wolf, etc. here’s the kicker, I’m an FFL, gunsmith, and former marine. These aren’t user errors. After scrubbing the Chamber function resumes as normal. I’m not getting into combat scenarios, but this one would leave you with your sidearm. Since America does have this interesting conflict of which rifle is better, as stated “the one available”. But if you’re keeping the ammo and mags at the ready, then the best thing I could tell anyone to do is take one of both, get out with it, discover your and it’s limits. Don’t clean it’s internals after every use, and know what problems arise and how to fix them. In a true bug out, these are the things that’ll help. As far as my opinion goes on which one to favor, my scenarios have always favored the one that always goes bang. If I’ve ever had an ak issue… It was the magazine not the rifle. So I only buy mags that are factory stated “garanteed to feed” but parts break, that’s the nature of machinery. I love my mk-12, it’s a long straight shooting platform, but it has so many more parts that have a potential to fail… It’s always in the back of my mind. And no such problem going around a corner with the ak. These two rifles have been arguing sisters in my arsenal for the last 25 years, one is a cheerleader that has to shower all the time, is beautiful, and gets perfect grades. The other, is more of a tomboy, likes to scrap, and misses the mark from time to time but hits like a sledge when she makes it. I love’em both.
