Survival Gear Review: Magpul Armorer’s Wrench

Once Upon A Time….You know, I’ll be honest here.  If you have never used an armorer’s tool to work on an AR variant rifle, I almost hate to endorse the Magpul Armorer’s Wrench as your first tool because you will never know just how bad most other armorer’s tools really are.  You won’t know what [...]

6 Calibers That Fly Under The Prepper Radar

If you’ve been a gun-owning prepper or survivalist for any amount of time, you’ve probably noticed a pattern.  After every large-scale shooting where a politician opens his mouth and breathes the words “gun control”, whenever a large-scale firearms regulatory law goes into effect (remember the 1994 “Assault Weapons Ban”?), or whenever there is a general [...]

Bug Out Gun Lights Part 1

Mounting a light on a weapon, whether long gun or handgun, is a necessary option for every bug in and bug out scenario.  The light is not just for discriminating among potential targets, but also to light the escape route, to light the impromptu medical theater, and to signal others as needed.  I can easily [...]

Going Off Grid – Part III

After we had established the ability to heat our home in an emergency with a wood burning fireplace, my wife and I decided that back up power would be the next logical step.  Unsure about the current state of solar technology, we decided to look into a stand by generator. By Virginia Tom, a reader [...]

Survival Gear Review: Yeti Coolers

Owning a Yeti cooler is a rite of passage in the South.  Am I kidding or what?  Nope.  Kids down here ask for Yeti coolers for Christmas for heaven’s sake.  The Robinson power family of Duck Commander fame is the poster children of this campaign.  Countless celebrities have jumped on the bandwagon, too, so how [...]

Survival Gear Review: RockD Auto Lock Carabiner

During my time in the Army, I served in both the infantry and Special Forces and had to hump (carry) all of my gear over some hellacious long distances and across various rugged environments with extremes in temperatures.    By Bama Bull, a reader of SurvivalCache.com One of the things I learned is that your [...]

Survival Gear Review: DayOne Waterbag

Those in survival circles tend to hang out around the smaller end of the water purification spectrum.  Tools like the Lifestraw and Sawyer filter are must-haves in your kit whether to get home or bug out. But what is on the other end of the drinkable water rainbow?  Turns out there is a 10-liter water [...]

Survival Gear Review: SIG Sauer P227 Nitron

It’s no secret to anyone who’s read any of my articles on Survival Cache or SHTFblog that I’m a SIG Sauer fanboy.  I’ve owned several – all of them in .45 ACP: a standard P220, a P245 compact, and my favorite, a P220ST stainless. Every single one has been just hideously accurate, and extremely reliable.  [...]

Survival Gear Review: Fallkniven KK Knife

Although the folding knife has been with us since pre-Roman times, and popular since the late 1600s, it has always been a compromise of size and strength. Anything that moves is a potential weakness. In the modern world, most cutting tasks don’t require more than a basic blade of even mild sharpness and strength. It’s [...]

Survival Gear Review: Fallkniven F1 Survival Knife

Tenacious would be a good word to describe the Fallkniven F1.  In fact, it would be the perfect word.  When survival is on the line, you want a blade that has tenacity in its job description.  And the folks at Fallkniven know how to build tenacity into a knife.  Since its introduction in 1995, the [...]
