Many survival "Experts" tell you to buy gold and silver to ensure your wealth after the SHTF. They argue that throughout history precious metals have held their value. While this is probably true, it may not always be so. They also encourage you to invest in pre 1965 silver (junk silver coins) which has no collector’s value, just the spot value of the silver content. They say that this will become the currency of the new economy and you will be able to use it to buy goods from those who may have what you want at a local barter fair.

08/Aug/2006: The Survival Arsenal

What you choose to fill your arsenal is largely dependent on your whole philosophy of what you are preparing for. Here are some possible scenarios:

1) Pandemic
2) Natural Disasters
3) Economic Instability/Social Breakdown
4) Martial Law/Civilian Disarmament
5) Civil War
6) UN/NWO Takeover
7) World War (Nuclear or Biological)

Other factors that could influence your choices are as follows:
1. What can you afford?
2. Where do you live? Are you planning on bugging out or hunkering down?
3. How old are your children? Can they competently shoot a .22lr? How about a larger caliber?
4. Do you plan on hunting for sustenance?
5. How does your family perceive your preparations? Are they behind you 100% or consider you eccentric? This will affect how well they will train/prepare for TSHTF.

Survivalism is a mindset, a way of life that focuses on being prepared for harsh times. It is a return to the self-reliance principles that our forebears practiced as a way of life. They had no choice, unlike we have today. If they failed to prepare they died. Survivalism is a way of organizing your life to make the best use of your personal resources; time & money.

The argument over how much ammo to buy and store is one of the most widely contested subjects on the Survival/Militia internet forums today. Many feel that only 500 rounds total is necessary while others suggest amounts that would require heavy trucking to move about.

27/Jun/2006: What is Survivalism?

My first exposure to survival came in the early 1980's. I was browsing the Magazine stand at our local store and ran across the Jan issue of Shooters Journal and Survival Guide, what would later become American Survival Guide. What I read in there made me re-evaluate my core beliefs. I was 25 years old and single at the time, struggling to save enough money to buy my first house. At the time, I needed to prepare for the then immediate threat, the escalation of the Cold War. Nowadays, the Cold War is history but many other threats have reared their ugly heads, either thru my education by reading new material or by careful review of the world around me.
