The TRUTH About "Get Home Bags" In Your Survival Gear Plan

It's a life or death decision... and most people are choosing death! Look, I'm as much of a "gear junkie" as anyone... But you have to be smart about your gear... and being smart with your gear begins with being smart about your bag! It doesn't matter if you call it an E.D.C. bag, a get home bag, a go bag or a bugout bag... you have to get the right bag... because the wrong one can cost you your life! Your bugout bag isn't a fashion accessory... it's a tool... and like any other tool you...

How A.I. And Autonomous Weapons Will Rule The World

The race is on... Every industrialized country on the planet is programming at a feverish pitch to push the limits of artificial intelligence (or A.I.). From self-driving cars to autonomous battlefield machines that can target and kill without human intervention, the future is wide open for this relatively new science. The question isn't whether we CAN or SHOULD continue down this path of “self-thinking” machines and weaponry. THAT question has already been answered. The question is... at...


"Girly" Fight Moves For The Manliest Men

It was just a routine evening jog for 36-year old Kelly Herron... that quickly turned into a nightmare. During a bathroom break from her run she was assaulted by a much larger and stronger attacker. But here's the crazy thing that happened... She won! In fact, she subdued her attacker and held him for the police to arrive. If she can fight off a larger, stronger attacker anyone can... But most men have a serious liability going into the "unfair" world of real-life street fighting! Here's...

The Truth About Surviving In A Grid-Down World

The electrical grid has been down for two months… Your neighbors are getting increasingly desperate… and you’ve seen things you can hardly believe… You’ve seen little children who look gaunt and starved like concentration camp prisoners… ...you’ve seen people harvesting tree bark and families eating their shoes to survive… ...you’ve seen ugly cruelties you didn’t think your neighbors were capable of… Perhaps worst of all there is no end in sight and no one is coming to save you. You’re...


How To Add "Stress Shooting" To Your Dry-Fire Drills At Home

Think you're prepared for the stress of a real attack? You've probably heard of your body's "adrenal response" - the natural "fight, flight, or freeze" reaction we naturally go through when we sense danger. Freezing is going to happen... it's natural... but snapping out of it to engage your attacker with your firearm as quickly as possible is what will save your life. In this episode, my buddy, Mike Ox will share his simple 2-step "brain hack" for adding "stress shooting" to your firearms...

How To Punch Fear In The Face!

"I bitched out!" I could hear the disappointment in my 20 y.o. son's voice as he shared with me how he dealt with an aggressive stranger confronting him at the local gas station. Although it's not the best terminology for submitting to the fear of being beat up and "standing down" - it's also not an uncommon feeling for those who have been face-to-face with someone who got the best of them. And trust me... I know it from personal experience! I'll share his story... as well as my 3- part...


The Best Handgun For A New Shooter With Smaller Hands?

I get asked this question a LOT... "If I'm new to shooting, what's the best handgun for me to buy?" Well actually, a question that came in last week for our Tacti-Cool Taco Tuesday livestream, from Emily of Illinois, took things to a whole new level as she qualified herself as having "smaller hands". This is a very common concern for both men and women who are of a smaller stature, or are older and don't have great hand strength. I think my answer to Emily's question will be a bit of a...


7 Reasons You Should NOT Punch In A Real Fight!

My 11 year old YouTube video on "Why you should NOT punch your attacker in a real street fight" has gone viral AGAIN with over 1.5 million views in just the last month! Now I realize this bunched up a LOT of panties in the butt cracks of many a martial artist, boxer, and MMA fighter out there when I released it.

These improvised alarm systems will give you early warning of an intruder in remote, wilderness settings as well as in urban survival scenarios.


What Police REALLY Want You To Say & Do After A Shooting

Being involved in a self-defense shooting can be the most stressful experience that one can have... and how you react could have long-lasting effects. That's WHY we train with our firearms, right? To make SURE we're ready for that moment when we're called upon to protect ourselves and those we love. But the fight isn't over when the bad guy goes down... and one wrong move... one wrong word as you call for help and work with responding police COULD set you up for YEARS of life-changing LEGAL...
