Upgrade Your Survival 10/22 for $100 with TANDEMKROSS

You know, it’s a pretty ballsy thing to take a beloved firearm that has attained world-over “hallowed” status and say, “You know what? I absolutely can make this thing way better.” It takes even MORE chutzpah to take that same sacred gun or guns and build a successful business around making said good guns better… Read More

Survival Gear Review: Magpul M-LOK Tripod Adaptor

If only the speed and dexterity of camera tripods could extend to rifle stability. Ahh, but there is a saddle-like apparatus that snipers have been using for years. But the three drawbacks of the saddles include price (good ones exceed $300), weight (good ones hover round one pound), and the saddles completely consume the tripod… Read More

Magpul M-LOK Rail Covers: Tactical Lego Fun and Function

As much as I like to be practical with my tactical, there is some room for fun, especially when color options are a required choice. And nothing comes closer to tactical color fun than playing with Magpul’s M-LOK Rail Covers. By Doc Montana, contributing author to Survival Cache and SHTFblog Magpul M-LOK Rail Covers, type… Read More

Survival Gear Review: Magpul PMAG 27 GL9 27-Round Glock Magazine

The Magpul PMAG 27 GL9 is Magpul’s seventh Glock-specific magazine offering. While there have been a few magazine hiccups for Glock in the past, it is not something that anyone points at a laughs as they do to some other unnamed companies. So what warrants an aftermarket magazine for what is arguably the world’s most… Read More

Survival Gear Review: Henry .410 Lever Action Shotgun

Sometimes, especially in the prepper/survivalist equipment world, one can tell upon cursory visual inspection or review of specifications that an item or piece of gear has value; but until you actually put the piece to work with your own bare hands, the level of utility and the piece’s place in the universe is often difficult… Read More

What Can I Use To My Advantage In A Bad Situation

Here is a question most people never think about. If I find myself in a bad situation such as a robbery, carjacking, potential fight, need to protect myself or another person. What can I do to increase the likelihood that I will come out the winner? Most folks have never considered this aspect of personal… Read More

Survival Gear: TandemKross 10-22 Rifle Ultimate Trigger Upgrade

Like the occasional sore throat or stubbed toe, factory 10/22 triggers are just a fact of life we live with. They crunch and grind along through their take-up. Then they hit a wall until the pressure on the trigger shoe dents the finger pad. The kra-chunk of the release is less of glass breaking, and… Read More

Survival Gear Review: Craft Holsters

I fully appreciate all the effort designers put into holsters, but when the cows come home (or the fat lady sings if you live in the city), the proof is in the pudding. Now, neck-deep in metaphors, I’ll cut to the chase; a finely crafted leather shoulder holster rules the day when packing a multi-pound… Read More

Thank Goodness for Hollywood’s Seven Gun Skills

Hollywood is an easy target for the teaching of poor to impossible gun skills. The number of errors and impossibilities in any gun-filled movie gives the general population a wildly distorted understanding of guns, shooting, and expectations of a bullet; all a good thing in my survival book. As long as potential adversaries are living… Read More
