Close your eyes for a minute and join me on a little adventure… You’re walking down the sidewalk and pass two shady figures talking amongst themselves.
As you pass them, you see the side door of a van open up just in front of you and two more suspicious characters emerge.
Within seconds, you’re restrained and struggling against four people trying to overpower you and throw you into the van.
Now, based on our readers vs. the general population, your response right now is to say “I’d shoot them before they had the chance,” OK Dirty Harry, but now your in a foreign country where your concealed handgun license doesn’t protect you.
Or, you’re in that same foreign country and gunmen jump into your rental car and tell you to drive… [Read More…]
Things have been moving along wonderfully here at ITS, and we’d like to announce our second giveaway! This contest is a bit more involved than our first one, but we think the prize will be worth your effort.
We’re giving away a Mini Survival Kit just like the one featured in our previous posts, it’s pocket sized and perfect to add to your EDC (everyday carry). [Read More…]
We’ve published the list here in it’s entirety, because we think it’s excellent information that everyone should know if they don’t already.
If you haven’t had a chance to read Strauss’ book, we highly suggest you add it to your reading list. There is a wealth of information contained inside and should be read by anyone who has even considered preparing for the worst.
For starters, I purchased three of the smallest pencils I’ve ever seen so I could throw one in my kit and use the plastic vial they come in for fishing supplies. I now have all the fishing hooks, leaders, weights and sewing needles in this tube and it organizes them quite nicely. [Read More…]
A good survival kit is one of those things you just don’t leave the house without. It’s a small insurance policy for what we may run into in life, and the kit we’ll be reviewing today is definately “small”.
You can stick this kit in the pocket of your shorts, a jacket or pretty much anywhere you can fit a wallet… Well, most wallets. If you carry a Costanza you’d be able to fit a kit much easier. Mini survival kits should at the very least hold the essentials for survival, but on a miniature scale. [Read More…]
I haven’t been much in the reading mood lately, but Emergency: This Book Will Save Your Life by Neil Strauss is amazing! I finished all 418 pages the same day I bought it. I can’t say that a book has held my attention like this ever before. Emergency is packed with information on how to increase your odds of surviving and escaping when SHTF.
Strauss has in depth information on obtaining multiple passports, living off the grid, crossing the border, lock picking, protecting your assets, Swiss banking and the art of disappearing. I can’t say that I have any money for an off-shore account, but we can dream can’t we?
If you’ve ever read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand then this book is for you.
