Sniper Training For Survivalists: Why Every Prepper Needs Long Range Shooting Training

Sniper Training For Survivalists: Why Every Prepper Needs Long Range Shooting Training

Question…

What do you think of when I say the word, “sniper”?

If you’re like most people, you get that mental image of a soldier covered in a camouflage “ghillie suit” ready to pull the trigger on an enemy combatant…

…A tactical SWAT marksman ready to end a hostage-taker’s stand-off…

…Or a clandestine spy positioned in a window, about to completely disrupt some country’s political system with a single bullet.

But while YOU may not be some state-sponsored covert assassin, have you ever thought about why you SHOULD consider becoming a “sniper”?

If that makes you scratch your head a little, then let me share with you…

5 Reasons Why Every Survivalist Needs “Sniper Training” To Be Prepared…

1. Intelligence Gathering

As they say, “knowledge is power”, right?

Well, sniper tactics are as much about doing reconnaissance to gain valuable intel on an “enemy” as they are about precision shooting.

A sniper can’t pull the trigger on just anything that comes into his crosshairs.

90% of the job is being able to detect, identify, and confirm targets, and developing these skills will make you far more aware during times when danger is around you and most people don’t even know it.

2. Survival Hunting

In any kind of “collapse”, food shortages will hit within the very first few days.

It’s a fact.

That means you’re going to have to find food for you and your family – and you’re only going to get 1 shot at that deer, rabbit, or squirrel that’s 300 ft away in that corn field.

You better make it count… or you’ll go hungry like the rest.

3. “Next Level” Marksmanship

At long ranges, every little mistake makes a BIG difference in how close your bullet hits to where you were aiming.
Sight picture… breathing… trigger squeeze… follow-through…

The training required to become “super-accurate” as a sniper can help you fine-tune ALL of your shooting skills – no matter whether it’s a shotgun, rifle, or even a pistol!

4. Stealth & Concealment

A sniper’s success doesn’t just rely on his (or her) accuracy.

You have to be “sneaky”.

You have to be able to creep into an optimal position without being detected… become “invisible” in any surroundings (even urban areas)… and be able to haul ass out of a “hot zone” without leaving a trail.

Hmmmm… sounds like just the kinda skills that could prove helpful for escape & evasion when the sh*t has hit the fan and the “wolves” of our society are prowling around for helpless victims to prey on, eh?

5. SHTF Defense

If worse ever DOES come to worse, you know that your family’s defense is going to entirely be up to YOU… and ONLY you!

Being able to hunker down in a safe location – and STAY safe – is going to require you to have someone standing watch 24/7 should some sneaky bastard start looking around for his (or their) next victims.

It’s always best to assume that the “enemy” is armed… and in ANY firefight confrontation, distance is your friend.

Being able to engage an enemy (foreign or domestic) from 500-800 yards away will help ensure your own survival… and force them to find their loot elsewhere (if they’re lucky enough to leave).

So hopefully this was all you needed to convince you that this type of training really IS useful for survival purposes.

So now, “what’s next?”, right?

How To Get Started As A “Survival Sniper”…

1. You’re gonna need a weapon. Sniper rifles can get pretty expensive and if you ever go to a gun show, you’ll see them all the way up to about $15,000 or so.

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure my dog would have my side of the bed on a permanent basis if I ever dropped that much on a rifle.

The sneaky trick used at these gun shows is to make the rifle “look” like a badass military weapon with a lot of inexpensive add-ons. In other words, they’re selling the “look” so you feel like you’re the next American Sniper.

I recommend (and have) a Remington 700 .308 caliber bolt-action rifle.

These come super accurate and reliable right out of the box and I’ve used it for hunting as well as long-range shooting.

Another option is an AR platform in .308 because it’s a familiar “feel” and deployment as a standard AR-15.

(Note: More on your gun in a few seconds…)

2. Next, you’re gonna need a good scope. These can also run you a ton-o-dough, but it’s a very critical factor in sniping so the more can spend on it, the better… but don’t go overboard.

I recommend a “FIXED variable” scope for long-range shooting.

An “adjustable variable” scope is one where you can adjust the sight picture very tight, which actually changes the power of the scope.

This allows you to get a very fine-tuned sight picture at varying distances, if you want it to.

However, a “fixed variable” scope has a fixed magnification so the power of the sight picture doesn’t change.

That means you don’t have to mess around dialing in the precise magnification when you’re trying to engage multiple targets… and for defense and survival purposes, that can mean the difference between getting a shot – or not!

3. Finally, before you go attaching all kinds of whiz-bang gizmos to your rifle, you’re gonna want to get in some “super accuracy training”.

Don’t worry… there’s no need to shell out a few thousand dollars for some “tactical sniper school”.

One of the best training programs out there for dialing in “super accuracy” with a rifle is through “Project Appleseed” (www.AppleseedInfo.org).

This is a national non-profit “marksmanship heritage” group of volunteers using a standardized set of special skills for training youth and adults in how to achieve superior accuracy with a rifle – just like the American colonists who out-shot and defeated the British forces back in 1775.

I’ve attended their courses and put all my sons through it as well, and I can’t say enough about the professionalism of this group and all of the volunteer instructors who help keep this patriotic skillset alive and well.

And the best part? The training is free!

Of course they’re not going to give you actual “sniper training” because that’s not what they’re about, but it’ll lay a strong foundation for what you need to take things to the next level.

Then There’s Your Gun…

A buddy of mine is well-known in the firearms industry for showing patriotic survivalists how to easily build “underground guns”.

You can get his FREE DVD here for just the cost of shipping it to you.

Untraceable guns like this are often called “ghost guns” because they use a little-known “invisibility loophole” that doesn’t require them to be registered with the government like other firearms.

Trust me, this is important…

You see, if there ever was ANY kind of crisis that triggered civil unrest on a grand scale, it’s a very real threat that the government (federal or local) could impose a mandatory “gun confiscation” program to take peoples’ guns.

Yes, I know this might sound like paranoia, but it’s already happened during scenarios like Hurricane Katrina.

And I mean, just watch the news…

Personally, I think we’re scary close to seeing more and more violent protests in the near future as we become further divided as a nation!

Are you seeing it too?

And with more mass-shootings and more gun-hating politicians taking office, anyone who is serious about their 2nd Amendment rights should be VERY afraid of the possibility of a knock on the door by a uniformed soldier with a clipboard, asking you to hand over your guns for the “greater good of the community” during a violent crisis.

So why take the chance?

Get equipped… get trained… and get prepared while you can.

The WORST Advice For Good Preppers & Survivalists

The Worst Advice For Good Preppers & Survivalists

Back in the “old days’ of the Internet, they used to tell you NEVER to use your real name for security purposes.

Back then, simple scams were everywhere.

But we’ve come a long way (mostly) since people were trusting enough to send money online to made-up Nigerian princes… right?

WRONG!

People may be a lot more “Internet savvy” when they use their phones or laptops these days…

…But in the survival/prepping community, a whole LOT Of them are still making a MAJOR mistake.

And that mistake, well… it’s the sort of thing that separates the real survivors from the ones who are just pretending – even if they don’t realize it!

Doing This Makes People “Fantasy Preppers”

The Worst Advice For Good Preppers & Survivalists
The Worst Advice For Good Preppers & Survivalists

See, I’m old enough to remember the early days of the Internet, when it was kind of a “Wild West” out there in terms of the information available.

You could find just about anything you wanted on Internet bulletin boards…

…and some of it was even true.

But while most of us have gotten a lot smarter about who we trust online, and who we give our information to…

…some of us are STILL falling for a new type of scam.

Instead of taking people’s money and not sending them anything, THESE scams are selling false security, giving people information that doesn’t work and that the seller doesn’t care about.

See, some people in the survival/prepping/self-defense communities are still taking advice from just anybody on the Internet.

They go on YouTube, look up a video, and believe what some tiny channel with no followers (and no clue) tells them.

They find a random post by “MallNinja12345” (I made that up) on Reddit, and they think it must be true because it sounds plausible.

Basically, they treat the Internet like a Ouja Board, asking just any old random person to give them advice on life-and-death matters of survival.

And that, Amigo, is the absolute WORST advice there is.

It treats survival like fantasy – and playing at being a prepper will get you hurt or killed when something real happens.

(You know, like a world-ending, economy-destroying pandemic?)

Now, I know you’re not going to stop looking at survival information on the Internet, and I wouldn’t want you to.

But if you’re going to be able to tell fact from fiction, if you want some clue as to whether a source should be trusted, you have to have a good background in multiple survival topics.

That means you have another problem:

HOW do you study “all of survival and self-defense” overnight?

Well, I found a deal that provides you with an “instant library” of solid survival and self-defense information.

With just one click, YOU can have this entire library at your disposal… which will help give you the background you need to make informed decisions about the “Internet survival info” you see.

You can learn more about everything contained in the instant library (and get access to them) here.

Just don’t put this off until later, okay?

These offers get taken down periodically, so you don’t want to miss out.

Watch your backs out there, and online… and don’t send any bitcoins or gift cards to imaginary royalty, okay?

Sheltering In Place (Quarantine/Lockdown): 3 Tips For Fortifying Your Property!

Jeff Anderson

When city planners are constructing communities, the last thing they’re thinking of is its defense against enemy combatants.

In fact, if anything, the way that normal neighborhoods are set up, most homes would make you a sitting duck if a battle broke out on your block.

As with any castle, the better fortified your fortress is as you’re staring at the marauders outside the gates, the better your chance of survival.

So how would you go about fortifying your home – especially with all of us worrying about looters and home invaders during the COVID-19 quarantines and lockdowns?

A while back I spoke with my survival expert Pat Henry about the idea of fortifying a home, and here is a summary of what he had to say to me about it.

3 Tips For Fortifying Your Property!

Survive In Place: 3 Tips For Fortifying Your home
Pat Henry
Pat Henry

You yourself may not have given any thought to how to defend your home and your community when it suddenly becomes a war zone, but as we’ve recently seen during times of widespread civil unrest, rioting and looting, any emergency that plunges your town into a state of social chaos could bring violence literally right to your door and onto your streets.

When the police are overwhelmed and 911 operators give up on even trying to answer the phone, it’s left to you, and hopefully a well-trained survival team, to defend your home.

Let’s say you’re lucky enough to be on a dead-end street.

You could use cars to stop people from coming down your street.

But you’re not going to be able to close off the entire perimeter of your front yard.

There’s just too much space there.

Most of us don’t live on dead ends, either.

But no matter how open your property is, there are choke points you can take advantage of.

That brings us to our first tip…

1. Creating And Exploiting Choke Points

Look for choke points that can minimize the space and reduce someone’s ability to get through.

You can also make those choke points.

  • You can drop a tree, for example.
  • Take advantage of fences in the area, too.
  • Anything that you can dump dirt, sand, or gavel into, like a trashcan, can form a barrier that makes it harder for an enemy to get through and may provide cover.

In a serious crisis, you could use appliances, like washing machines, freezers, and so on, filled with dirt.

That kind of mass will stop a vehicle.

It won’t stop a tank, but it will stop most passenger cards on the road… and it will slow down just about anyone.

2. Mind Your Windows And Doors

Your home is, obviously, your last line of defense.

We see it in zombie movies and things like that, with arms coming through the windows.

You’ve got to plan ahead of time to seal off your windows and doors from a serious invasion.

Sure, someone could take a sledgehammer and start beating in the walls, but if they’re doing that, you’re not going to stop them anyway.

You can purchase a film from 3M that you can apply to your windows to turn them, effectively, into a sheet of plastic like safety glass.

They’ll take much more abuse before they give in, although they’re not bulletproof.

  • Plywood can also be fit over your windows, although it cuts your visibility and makes your fortifications more obvious.
  • Boards with nails run through them can be put under your windows to provide a deterrent.
  • The doors themselves can be reinforced, or you could replace the entire door with a steel unit.

All of these tactics are intended to buy you time.

They’re to give you more room to sneak around and get out to escape.

3. Sandbags

One thing that you could lay in a supply off, as long as you’ve got a yard to fill them from, is sandbags.

People usually have these on hand for flooding, but they can be used to make a great barricade if you have time to fill them.

It’s time-consuming to build a wall of sandbags, but creating a mound you can duck behind for cover is another otion.

You don’t even need to have a ton of dirt available.

Obviously, you’d be filling these with dirt, not sand, in most cases.

These work because a dirt mound is a great way to absorb the energy of bullets.

If you have enough dirt, you can make some fairly serious earthworks defenses.

Even just a little can help provide needed cover.

So what are YOU doing to prepare your home for an invasion like this?

The time to start fortifying is NOW, more than ever before.

Survival Gear / Bug Out Bag Mistake: Don’t Let Pride Make You “Burt Gummer!”

Prepping Operational Security: The Survivalist Burt Gummer Mistake
Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

“The night of the fight, you may feel a slight sting. That’s pride f-ing with you. F-k pride. Pride only hurts, it never helps.”

Those were the words of the character Marsellus Wallace in Pulp Fiction.

He’s basically telling Bruce Willis’ character to throw a boxing match – and his argument is that the punishment for refusing is much, much worse than the pain of losing.

Well, Pulp Fiction is just a movie… but when I rewatched it not long ago, it reminded me of… survival conventions!

“Wait… what!?” you’re probably thinking.

Well, I’ll explain… because that quote about pride f-ing with you can teach us something really important about your “operational security”.

Operational Security For Preppers: Don’t Let Pride Make You Burt Gummer

Prepping Operational Security: The Survivalist Burt Gummer Mistake
Prepping Operational Security: The Survivalist Burt Gummer Mistake

I’ve been going to survival and prepper conventions for a long time, now.

They’re a lot of fun… but I gotta say, it always amuses me to be surrounded by “Burt Gummers.”

Burt Gummer, if you don’t know, is a character from the Tremors movie franchise.

(Man, I’m practically Blockbuster Video today… which is still a thing, right? Right??)

He’s kind of a running gag because everything about him is impossibly tactical.

Prepping Operational Security: The Survivalist Burt Gummer Mistake
Prepping Operational Security: The Survivalist Burt Gummer Mistake

Everything he does, says, and wears is all about paramilitary jargon and gear.

He talks like he’s on a military operation no matter what he’s doing.

He dresses like a 5.11 catalog exploded in his bedroom.

And of course, he’s armed all day long, and loves to talk about guns.

As much as I love to meet and talk with my fellow preppers and survivalists, a LOT of them are so proud of their dedication to prepping that they walk and talk just like this… completely blowing their “operational security”!

In other words, you can spot them coming from a mile away.

It’s like they can’t turn it off… and I guarantee that everybody they know is completely aware that they’re all about being prepared.

“Why’s that bad, Jeff?” you might be asking.

Well, like I’ve said before, the last thing you want to do is let the people around you know that you’re prepared.

In an emergency – especially a collapse or survival situation that lasts for a long time – these people are going to show up at your door, begging for you to help them.

They’ll ask at first.

Then they’ll beg.

Finally, they’ll demand… and they won’t take “no” for an answer!

Now, if you’re thinking that this isn’t a problem for you, because you don’t dress or act that way, that’s good.

But I have to ask… is your Bug-out Bag (your BOB) going to give you away?

Even discreet folks will buy what they think is the best BOB for their survival kits – and often, that’s a military-style bag covered in tactical accessories that is a dead giveaway to anyone looking.

In other words, the pride you have in that tactical bag could punish you much, much worse than sucking up your pride and going with a less “tactical” looking option!

In an emergency or collapse, if you’re bugging out with one of those bags over your shoulder, people are going to spot you – and they’ll know that you have things they desperately need.

As proud as we all are of who we are and what we do, the “you’ll pry my gun out of my cold dead fingers” approach will end just like that.

“You’ll pry my MREs out of my cold dead fingers” will have the same result!

Predators, your desperate neighbors, gangs looking to supply up… even the authorities will be happy to oblige you if the alternative to robbing YOU is watching their families starve.

See, your BOB, and the supplies in it, aren’t just going to keep you and your family alive at home… they’re also the ONLY thing that will keep you alive if you’re forced to evacuate.

Understanding ideas like this – and preparing the smart, covert way (rather than the Burt Gummer way) is just the beginning of truly preparing to keep your family safe in an emergency.

This is a tip like the ones you’ll find in my survival gear secrets report, which you can see right here…

Don’t let pride make you a “Burt Gummer” (and therefore a target).

Get the tips and tricks that can keep you and your family safe… while you stay prepared.

EDC Tactical Gear: Life-Saving Police Gear Even YOU Can Carry!

Police Cop Gear: Less Lethal EDC For Citizen Protectors

The recent mass shootings put the focus on first responders more than ever before.

But it isn’t just those rare, horrible attacks that cops, SWAT and tactical officers, and medical personnel deal with every day.

Every day, police officers deal with life-and-death situations requiring the use of force.

Whether it’s domestic disputes…

…assaults, street fights, and property crimes…

…or murders and gunfights…

…every cop relies on the gear he carries every day to survive while doing his job.

In other words, a cop’s EDC gear isn’t just the tools he or she uses to do the job.

It’s their no sh*t survival kit!

In fact, it’s one of the most constantly field-tested survival kits there is – with the purpose of getting them safe and sound back to their home… to those they love… alive!

Don’t YOU have that same goal as you face the world each day?

Of course you do – so let’s take a minute to talk about…

Police Gear EVERY “Protector” Should EDC

Police Cop Gear: Less Lethal EDC For Citizen Protectors
Police Cop Gear: Less Lethal EDC For Citizen Protectors

Every survivalist, prepper, CCW-holder, and prepared citizen carries EDC gear (aka. “everyday carry” gear) – even if that’s a just a simple pocket knife for general tasks, or for personal defense.

The fact is, in an emergency, the gear you have on your person and in your pockets might be the ONLY stuff you have to deal with the problem.

Whether it’s sudden street violence… a collapse, an “active shooter” situation… or a sudden riot… your EDC tools — like the stuff on a cop’s duty belt — are all you’ve got when it counts.

Cops already know this.

Unfortunately, most civilians don’t think beyond their gun or knife at what they CAN carry – and why they should.

Now, I get it…

You probably can’t carry a baton (a “nightstick”).

You might not want to cart around a taser.

You might not even be able to carry a firearm, which every police officer has on his or her belt.

But there are OTHER pieces of EDC gear — perfectly LEGAL gear for civilians — that can save your life in a real attack!

Consider these additions to your own EDC arsenal…

1. Handcuff Key

Every cop carries handcuffs, and every cop carries handcuff keys.

These are universal and there are TONS of handcuff keys you can buy.

Some are so small and light that you can clip them to the inside of your belt and forget all about them.

If you find yourself in a kidnapping or hostage situation, you might be handcuffed because cuffs are a fast way to immobilize a prisoner.

If you have a handcuff key hidden on you, getting free so you can escape and evade is that much easier.

There have been several high-profile hostage situations when mass shooters held people prisoner before shooting them one by one.

Even if you NEVER use it, a hidden handcuff key is cheap insurance you’ll never notice you’re carrying.

2. Flashlight

Flashlights are so bright and so cheap these days that it should be a crime not to carry one.

Yet too many people just don’t bother to drop one of these into their pocket each morning.

It takes just a few dollars to get a high-quality aluminum LED unit.

They’re small.

They’re bright.

They can be used as striking tools.

But most importantly, they enable you to identify your target in low light so you don’t shoot or stab the wrong person.

On top of all that, an EDC flashlight is great for utility purposes, including walking at night and alerting cars to your presence.

If you don’t have one, you NEED to get one and carry it, just like cops do.

3. “Rubber” Gloves

In any emergency, shooting, or other violent or traumatic event, there’s going to be blood.

NOBODY wants contact with other people’s blood these days.

A pair of surgical gloves is something anybody can tuck away.

They take up almost no room and weigh nothing.

Cops carry them as necessary protection when responding in life-or-death emergencies.

You can too.

With your gloves at the ready, you’ll be able to protect yourself while rendering first aid and other medical assistance in an emergency.

4. Pepper Spray

Finally, you need to be carrying pepper spray, even though most people don’t bother.

Cops carry pepper spray (and tasers) so they have “less lethal” options for subduing a suspect.

You should be carrying it so that lethal force isn’t your ONLY option in a fight.

This protects you legally, because if you defend yourself, you can only use the amount of force needed to stop the attack — and no more!

A judge and jury will cut you a LOT more slack if you only pepper spray a guy who’s coming at you, but who isn’t quite a murderous threat.

If you shoot that guy, it’s YOU going to jail…

…but if you pepper spray him to subdue him, that’s an appropriate use of force.

If all you’re carrying is a gun, your ONLY option is to KILL someone (at least potentially, which is how courts look at lethal force).

In other words, you have to carry pepper spray so that you can take your response to a “less lethal” level BEFORE you use potentially lethal force – when called for.

After all, “if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.”

(Make that mistake in a real street altercation and you could end up in prison.)

Plus, pepper spray is very often legal, even in states that are fairly anti-gun.

Don’t reinvent the wheel when it comes to EDC survival gear.

Learn from what the police carry to protect themselves and others.

Copy their EDC choices and you’ll be better equipped every single day.

Prepping, Storage, & Stockpiling In Limited Spaces, Apartments, & Small Homes

“Most preppers are NUCKING FUTZ!”

If you ask me, that’s the message that television shows like “Doomsday Preppers” and others tried to send to the public, don’t you agree?

But hey… that’s the kind of sensational crap that sells advertising for the television networks, right?

In fact, I remember one episode of one of those shows that was particularly bad…

This woman lived in an apartment and was SCARED TO DEATH of what would happen to her if the excrement hit the oscillating atmosphere agitator.

Her apartment was FILLED from top to bottom with soda bottles of every size – all of them filled with tap water.

I think a lot of would-be preppers and even experienced survivalists think that this type of hoarding is their only option if they’re prepping in limited space, like an apartment.

But that’s absolutely FALSE!

At least, it’s false if you understand. . .

3 Tips For Prepping With Limited Storage Space

Prepping, Stockpiling, and Survival For Small Homes, Apartments, And Other Limited Spaces
Prepping With No Storage Space

One of the most common complaints I hear from preppers is about where to store all of their emergency food, water, medicine, and ammo.

I mean, who the hell has an endless chain of buried school buses in the back yard, or a warehouse worth of storage space in the attic?

No one. That’s who.

A LOT of people live in smaller homes, apartments, or even trailers and RVs and don’t have the space or moolah to build their own bat-cave of survival gear.

Hell… even those with what they think is PLENTY of storage might have trouble with long-term storage of supplies, because the bare necessities themselves take up a LOT of valuable space.

Your plan will change depending on your situation, of course.

For example, if you live near a reliable fresh water source, you may be stockpiling less water but investing more money in filtration systems.

No matter WHAT your situation, though, almost every prepared citizen asks him- or herself this question sooner or later:

“Where do I find more storage space?”

Well, HERE’S where…

1. In “Negative” Space

One way to fit more stuff into the same amount of space is to take advantage of “negative” space — the areas in between where things are now.

For example…

  • The space between the wall and a bookshelf or desk might be wide enough for you to fit a lockable file cabinet that instead holds cans of food stacked neatly on top of each other.
  • The space under a bed or even under a sofa could be used to store anything that will lay flat enough to go unnoticed.
  • Stackable totes and storage containers can be stacked up to take up less overall space.

These stackable plastic storage containers are a good example of eliminating negative space because they also allow you to force irregularly shaped items to fit in more neat “pockets.”

These storage containers can then be stacked on top of each other much more neatly, eliminating wasted area.

2. In The SAME Space You Have Now

The secret to fitting “20 pounds of sh*t in a 10 pound bag” has always been organization.

Some of you are old enough to remember the game “Tetris.”

In that game, you stack bricks of different shapes together, like puzzle pieces, to make full rows to score points (and make room for more rows).

Well, storing your survival gear is like a big ol’ game of Tetris.

You’ve got to find a way to fit everything together – like a puzzle – eliminating wasted space and fitting what you have in the smallest, most efficient “envelope” possible.

I guarantee, if you look at how your supplies are stored, you can find ways to make them…

  • Neater
  • More organized
  • Easier to find
  • More tightly stacked and grouped

Again… large plastic storage boxes are GREAT for making your gear more organized, modular, and helping you fit more into less space.

That brings me to. . .

3. In “Secret Hiding Spots” In Your Vehicle

OK, this is probably the biggest opportunity that people just don’t think about…

First of all, there are so many hidden open spaces in your vehicle, it will make your head spin. (Just ask any cop who’s had to search for drugs at a traffic stop!)

The most obvious places are in the trunk… glove box… and under the seats.

But there are even some “secret” places like inside the bottom of the seats… in the spare tire compartment… or even disguised storage boxes (one of my sneakiest tricks)!

The fact is, my vehicle is my PRIMARY storage location for my most critical survival gear… and right now I’m driving a tiny Mini Cooper!

(Um… you don’t have to snicker!)

You see, these supplies are the ones that will not only keep you and your family alive at home… but also if you’re ever forced to evacuate your home.

In fact, this is one of the “5 phases of survival” I talk about in-depth in my online “survival masterclass” that frankly, most people are doing all wrong!

Look, the bottom line is this…

Making a plan now, and organizing your supplies to support that plan, is a critical part of survival stockpiling and prepping – no matter how much space you do or don’t have!

Hopefully these tips will help you re-think your storage options and take the next step in better protecting yourself and your loved ones.

There are a lot more tips that can help you that, unfortunately, are more detailed than I can go into in just this one article.

However, if you’re interested in the RIGHT way to set up your survival plan and your supplies based on real-world scenarios, you can download a report about that right here.

This is something that ANYONE can follow to be prepared for ANY disaster, crisis, or attack — whether you live in a mansion, a small apartment, or even a camper or house boat.

Gas Masks: Why You Need One… How To Get One

Have you ever seen a picture of a “prepper” in a gas mask?

Chances are good that you have, because the gas mask has become the go-to symbol of whackjob paranoid loons in popular media.

I see pictures of preppers in gas masks, holding rifles while standing in post-apocalyptic landscapes, all the time, and that’s bad. . .

. . . because the gas mask is a very REAL, very USEFUL tool that can safe your life and your family’s life.

Even if you get that, though, you have ANOTHER problem:
