The trick to making any of these methods reliable is practice. Practice each one a few times before you are in a bind. Attempting to figure out what works well and what is hard to use is increasingly more difficult when you are already tired, [...]

Survival Uses of a Tactical Flashlight

A tactical flashlight should be an essential part of your everyday carry kit because--unlike a normal flashlight, which is primarily for illumination--a tactical flashlight has multiple uses that could be vital to your survival. This is a guest post from Shooting Mystery. The differences between a regular flashlight and a tactical flashlight. Regular flashlights provide illumination, which is helpful when you are in a dark place without sufficient lighting. But tactical flashlights offer more. They have a stronger light intensity, and a lightweight but more solid construction. Most are made of non-corrosive, waterproof, shockproof material to extend durability and life [...]

During high school, I was a Tom Clancy fanatic. I was reading his early books as they were new and on the Best Seller lists (yes I am that old). Tom Clancy's writing style is intense. He goes into incredible detail about his characters, military equipment and the political world. Nothing I had read to that point in my life even compared to his writing. But after high school I went to college for a while then off to the military. I lost track of Clancy's books. It wasn't until much later, after being married and having a kid before [...]

Tin Foil Recipes For Campfire Cooking

Ahhh, camping – a great way to get outside and practice your survival skills. Call me weird, but one of my favorite aspects about camping is cooking over a campfire. There's something about it that feels simple about campfire cooking, and that it makes it easy to enjoy. A great way of campfire cooking is by using foil. Essentially, you wrap uncooked food in foil and place it over hot coals from your campfire where you let time and heat to do the rest. What's great about foil cooking is that you can prep it all at home before you [...]
