This is going to be a different kind of article. No gear or techniques to aid in survival, but nonetheless – it’s a topic I want to discuss because it relates to something that is often brought up, though rarely do we discuss its consequences. I have been musing about this topic for a while […] This is just the start of the post The Act of Killing: Not So Easy; Is It Something You Can Live With?.

Not too long ago, we pulled the Survival Pulse website offline in an attempt to combat the censorship on the net in a way we felt would work. Instead, we replaced the website with a newsletter. Emailing you directly meant we could have access to you no matter what happened: Facebook algorithm changes, Twitter burying […] This is just the start of the post Survival Pulse Prepper News Site: Website Now Live Again!.

Practical Preparedness – Planning by Prevalence When we jump on preparedness sites, sometimes we’re immediately struck by the enormous loads of things to buy, do, and learn. We immediately start hearing about WROL, battle rifles, ammo counts in the thousands, pressure canners, INCH/BOB bags and locations, pace count, and primitive skills. World- and nation-altering events such as nuclear war, internet-ending viruses, Nibiru, Agenda 21 and NWO, and the like pop up. They all have their places, but sometimes things get missed and it can make for a very overwhelming introduction. It can make it hard to prioritize where to spend our time and financial budgets even for those with experience and years of exposure to the prepared mindset. To make it a littl..
Written by Pat Henry on The Prepper Journal. I travel a pretty good bit for work. When I travel, it almost exclusively by air as it just so happens my co-workers or customers are spread all over the globe. In a perfect world I always have my EDC gear on me but when traveling, especially via plane, you have to make some concessions. When it makes sense I have basic survival gear that I pack, but my luggage has to be checked. I have flown with a firearm on multiple occasions, but what if you are unable to take any survival gear with you? What would you do if you were caught in a disaster without even your trusty survival knife? In this article I want to go through some situations I personally have in my 9-5 life where I wasn’t as prepared as I know in my heart I should be, and discuss some alternatives when you are caught without your prepping supplies. When all hell breaks loose, are you doomed if you don’t have your full battle rattle on? What should you be carrying everywhere you ..
Written by John Hertig on The Prepper Journal. Introduction to Slings (Part 2) Last time we looked at the uses, types and history of slings. Now let us consider how to choose a sling and look at some choices with potential for tactical use. How to Choose a Rifle Sling As is usually the case with anything, the first step in choosing the best rifle sling is to decide what you are going to use it for. For a sport hunting arm, any old carrying strap will do. A padded one will be comfortable for those long treks, and these are available in nylon and leather. I tend to prefer the nylon ones as being more reasonably priced. If you are doing competition shooting, go with what the rules of your events specify; a M1907 model sling might be optimal for some types of competitions. For a tactical rifle or shotgun, a single point/two point convertible is often a good choice. Slings are available in various widths. I would tend to avoid 1″, the most common, when possible. This is just because th..

If you’d asked me 16 years ago if I’d be ready for when the SHTF, I would’ve answered yes without any kind of hesitation. After all, I was single, I was a Ground Team Leader in the Air Force Auxiliary unit Civil Air Patrol, I had worked as an Armed Security Agent, was working in the airlines, and had taken a multitude of camping, firearms, first aid, and survival courses. In the chaos of 9/11 I’d been told that I’d handled myself admirably and with a cool and level head by my co-workers and supervisors. I felt prepared. Then I met my wife-to-be, moved across the country, and settled into suburban life. As the years passed my emergency gear went by the wayside, my skills waned a bi..
