ARES SCR Generation 2

The ARES SCR Generation 2 lower looks very interesting.  It is a lower that uses a custom AR-15 bolt carrier group along with a standard AR-15 upper. First thing I wondered was how does the ARES SCR work without a buffer?  It uses a buffer like an FN/FAL. Another thing that came to mind was putting […]

Millenials Lack Survival Skills

There is a thread in the survival forum about how Millenials Lack Survival Skills. The opening post links to a page on Foxnews, which links to another page and so on. None of the linked pages outside the forum offer very much information, so I thought I would write my own thoughts on the topic. […]

Where Do You Find Your Happiness

Happiness, what is it, where does it come from and where can it be found.  I turn 49 years old in 2017.  As I look back there have been various times when I was happy.  I can look back at the 1990s and think of times when I was happy, and a lot of times […]

Starting Livestock Fence Project

2017 is the year I fence in several acres for livestock.  I have been talking about this for several years, and this year is when I take action to put the project into motion.

One of my favorite books about medieval life, which is Life in a Medieval Village by Frances and Joseph Gies, talks about how people valued small livestock.  Cattle were mainly for milk production, which was used to make cheese and butter.

In medieval times there was no way to preserve meat for long periods.  If a 500 pound cow was butchered, a large amount of meat would rot and go to waste.  Based on that, I am going to focus on small livestock and just a couple of cattle.


What Is Your Prepping Goal

What is the goal of your prepping plan? If you were to write an essay on prepping, what would your closing paragraph be about? It should describe your ideal goal in prepping. Preppers can not be classified into one category. we have different groups who subscribe to different prepping plans. These go way beyond what […]

What Was Your First Survival Knife

Around 1984,I went to GI Surplus in Orange Texas and bought my first survival knife. The store is no longer in business, which is a shame.  They had a good selection of military surplus. When I got the knife home I was so proud.  It was like a turning point in a young mans life, […]

Fire Alarm And Young Men

My fiancee and I Went to see Rogue One at Tinseltown in Beaumont. Towards the end of the movie the fire alarm went off. A lady came over the speaker system and said a fire alarm had gone off and asked everyone to exit the building. People got up and started exiting through the fire […]

ThruNite C2 Mini 3400 Charger Review

If there is one thing Thrunite does, they manufacturer a quality product. So far I have reviewed four Thrunite flashlights and all of them are top notch. Thrunite continues their reputation for quality with the ThruNite C2 mini-charger.

Full Disclosure: I received the charger at no cost to myself. This will not influence my opinion and hopefully will not influence your opinion either.

Sootch00 Rifle Review Henry 44 Magnum Carbine

Sootch00 has released yet another great video, this one is of the Henry 44 Magnum Carbine.

Truth be known, I love lever action rifles. There is just something about them that draws attention. Maybe because the lever action is known as the rifle that won the west? On top of that, have a handy short rifle chambered in 44 magnum? Talk about a perfect combination.

Log Splitter For The Farm

Landed a tractor powered log splitter for the farm. This is something I have wanted and needed for a very long time. An older gentleman had a log slitter he was no longer using. It had been left uncovered for so long the hoses and seal on the ram had dry rotted.

The splitter works with a pump that slips over the spline of the tractor PTO. The hoses going to and from the pump were dry rotted through and were leaking.

No More Politics

After thinking about it for some time, I decided to move away from politics on this website.  I will continue to post random thoughts articles, but strictly political commentary is being moved to another site. This new site is PBJ News. The new site has a youtube channel, where I will be uploading political commentary videos. […]

Sootch00 Rifle Review FN FAL

Sootch00 has posted a rifle review, this time of the DS Arms SA-58 FN/FAL. From my personal experience of the DS Arms FN/FAL, they are great rifles. Sootch00 goes into some of the history of the FN/FAL. One thing that sets the DS Arms FM/FAL apart from other FNs on the market, the DS Arms […]

Honest Robbery

A few days ago I came across the youtube channel of Darius Benson. He makes some funny short youtube video skits. He plays multiple characters who have a back and forth discussion. In this video Darius Benson is talking with a friend who has recently moved back to town. The two friends are talking about […]
