Preppers have to be careful when it comes to firearms. They are sooo fun to shoot that folks get a gun hobby mixed up with purchasing firearms for survival.

The 'Perfect' Firearm
It use to be, the perfect handgun for survival was a .357 magnum revolver.

Then, ... It was the M1911A1 semiautomatic pistol

Then, ... It was a 9mm pistol

All of them made of steel

Then, ... It was the Glock 17, a plastic pistol

Then, ... It was something else.

Something Different
During an event, you and your family may encounter different foods, that you're not use to eating.

So, ... You and your partner might want to get your family ready, for this possibility, by introducing your family to different foods.

We Can Do Better
Some people think these United States dietary guidelines are a government plot to get us, you and your family, to quit eating meat and eat healthier.

All I have to say is ... Duhh ; - )

My Favorite
Jodi and Julie have a great site (I'm envious) called Food Storage Made Easy with lots of great information and good advice. One nugget of information (really seven) is about long-term food storage.

First, ...
We can learn lessons about surviving possible events by leaning from other people's experiences.

One of these lessons?

Say Uncle - You’re on Your Own

Second, ...
We can also learn about surviving possible events by looking at historical events.

Just be careful, some times the history books are wrong.
