Shotguns for Survival

For a short term, personal catastrophe, firearms are not always of great benefit.  For a more widespread, longer term, catastrophe, replenishing your food stocks and defending yourself from those who have snipped the threads holding them to humanity become of significant importance.  And in some of these cases, there is not much which is more effective than the appropriate firearm.

In this two part article, I take a look at perhaps the most versatile firearm choice, the ubiquitous shotgun.

Some Field Knife Reviews

Finally, I got deals on some field knives.  These are the bigger knives, optimal for chopping, as compared to the smaller bush knives which are better at smaller or precise tasks.

I have two more of this class knife plus three bush class knives left to review, and that will probably be it for knife reviews for now.   Have I found the best knife in either class?  Probably not, but I think I’ve gone through a wide selection of knives which are “economically” priced.  There were only a few left on my list to try, and those ones seemed not to be available at a suitable discount.  So unless a company wants to send me one for review…
