    I agree. I own lots of knives from cheap moras to expensive customs. I tend to use my knives, but if I were to keep a safe Queen, I certainly...

    Hi Sarge,

    Was just looking through some old threads and came across something you wrote. You mentioned were you live that they have cracked down on gun carrying and transporting of guns? Dose every state in the US have different rules? They have cracked down a lot here in the UK, I hope it never gets as bad as it is here for you guys, and I’m sure it won’t.

    Take care,

    Hey Sarge,

    I too am an old sarge, too; but I was a young sarge 40 years, I'm saying, I've been a civie for a long time. I'm writing because I really like your avatar. Can you tell where I can get a reasonably large version of it.

About bugging out...

by Sarge47 on 01-10-2015 at 09:04 PM
There's always a lot on this site about "BOBs," bugging out, and bag contents. Books have been written about them and what to take. Many times these books seem to focus on young, single, strong males that have nobody else tnd are able to shoulder their huge, heavy bag, grab their rifle, and head off into the wilderness, if'n they have any nearby, like Dan'l Boone or somebody.

Little is said about families with young children, families with elderly folks, elderly folks by

A book review of "Stay Alive Survival Skills You Need!" by John D. McCann.

Recently John McCann became a member of this forum. He is the author of the well known book, "Build the Perfect Survival Kit." This book is jam packed with good info on instructing those who desire to know how to make their own SK! John ranges from "ultra small kits" to a full-size Backpack and shows you the items that can go into each and every one, based upon size, need and budget. The photos are black and white, but very well done none the less. Every newcomer to the

USMC Force Recon Survival Kit.

by Sarge47 on 01-18-2013 at 10:24 PM
I received my USMC F.R. S.K. today and was debating weather to go ahead and open it up or just leave it in it's tough, original packaging until I needed it. Logic swayed me as I figured that if I waited what would I do if the items were broken or missing, so I went ahead and opened it. The following is my review of the items:

10 definitions for Noobs.

by Sarge47 on 01-10-2013 at 05:46 PM
Oft-times we get members here that are completely new to the terms used for Wilderness Survival, so this may help.

1.) SK stands for "Survival Kit." These range in size from microscopic to gargantuan and any where in between. It has been rumored that a very small kit that can fit inside a thimble has the power to save you from a Force 5 Hurricane such as Katrina or Sandy! The components to the miniature survival kit are quite small, You will probably lose this before you
