Wilson CombatUSA -(Ammoland.com)- Wilson Combat team members, Greg Martin, Austin Proulx, Les Kismartoni, and Mandy Bachman traveled to the Wisconsin State IDPA match on June 17th, 2017.

The match was held at Schultz Resort Rod and Gun Club in Muskego, Wisconsin. The team had a successful match and Wilson Combat is proud to announce the results.

IDPA Distinguished Master, Greg Martin, dominated the match winning the CCP Division, High Industry, and 1st place overall. Austin Proulx took home the CDP Division Champion title and finished 4th overall for the match.

Les Kismartoni placed 3rd SSP Master and 5th overall. Mandy Bachman was 2nd in the ESP division, 8th overall for the match and brought home another High Lady title.

  • Greg Martin, CQB Compact Commander chambered in 9mm:
    “The match was held on a range that had small bays, so the stages were all pretty compact. I took some time before the match to look at all the stages. When doing so, I realized that two of the stages were going to most likely be high point drop stages. I knew the rest of the stages needed to be shot as accurately as possible. My plan worked out enabling me to win the CCP division and High Industry. I also had the best score of the match. I ended up dropping only 18 points for the match, 11 of those points were on the 2 stages I mentioned before. I believe that my experience and knowledge of the sport put me out in front. Having the ability to know when to tone down or punch the accelerator was key at this particular match.” – Greg
  • Austin Proulx, CQB Elite chambered in .45ACP:
    “This was a challenging match with little room for error and lots of fast moving targets. I ran into some bumps along the way during the morning. Ultimately, I was able to do well during the second half of the day, and pull off a CDP Division Champion win. My CQB Elite keeps chugging along and performing extremely well, even after thousands and thousands of rounds.” – Austin
  • Les Kismartoni, Brigadier Tactical:
    “After taking aseven year break from shooting IDPA, I just wanted to be comfortable with my concealment gear and the new 2017 rule changes. Even though I had a few errors, I think I was successful in shaking off the rust.” – Les
  • Mandy Bachman, CQB Elite chambered in .9mm:
    “This was a very deceiving match. The stages were set up pretty tight, not a ton of movement, and not many long shots. This made it very easy to underestimate the difficulty of the stages. I typically like to go one for one on steel activators. There was one, in particular, I had to shoot from a very awkward angle and this proved challenging for me. Because of that, I plan to spend some time in my next few practices working on awkward angles from the fault lines.” – Mandy

Foreign Firearms Manufacturer Expands U.S. Operation

steyr-arms

Alabama.com

 

Austria-based Steyr Arms is spending $2.9 million to expand their operation in Bremmer, Alabama. Currently, the Alabama location imports, distributes and assembles firearms. Instead of building the firearms in Austria and importing them, Steyr Arms plans on permanently relocating their U.S. operation to Birmingham.

“This expansion represents a great deal of trust in our operations in Bessemer, on behalf of our parent company,” Scott O’Brien, president of Steyr Arms, told the Birmingham Business Journal. “Our operations and workforce here are world class, and we are proud to be able to serve our U.S. customers in a new and efficient way.”

Economic organizations around the state are excited about the firearms manufacturer expanding in Alabama. The company spent $1.7 million in 2013 its Birmingham operations from Trussville to Bessemer.

“Steyr Arms’ decision to add a manufacturing component to its operation in Bessemer shows that Alabama provides an ideal environment for firearms makers, along with many other manufacturing businesses,” Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce, told Made in Alabama.

Currently, the company has 15 employees at its Alabama location.

The expansion is expected to be completed by summer of 2019, but manufacturing is scheduled to start on-site by the end of the year.

Survivalism Meets Homesteading: The To-Do List

survivalism-meets-homesteading-featured-image

In my previous article, Why Every Survivalist Should Be Homesteading, I talked about why it is important that every survivalist should consider starting a homestead. As survivalists, we are prepared with our stocked bug out bags ready to go at a moment’s notice. We have first aid kits and other needed supplies in our homes, our vehicles, and at work. We carry that preparedness attitude and our mindset is “WE ARE READY!”… but, are we? For a 72 hour emergency? Yes, most of us are. But what do you do when an overnight emergency becomes long term?Read on for the to-do list when survivalism meets homesteading.

Read on for the ultimate to-do list that perfectly pairs survivalism with homesteading.

Survivalism Meets Homesteading: The To-Do List

In my previous article, I ran the scenario of being homebound during an emergency. No evacuation but, instead, the exact opposite. Roads shut down, which causes travel to become impossible, and our link to the outside world beyond our front lawns is cut off. You are in an entirely different situation. If you have stored food, water, and other supplies then that’s great! But, do you have enough of those necessities to sustain you and your family for possibly months or even years? What happens when your supplies (your lifeline) are gone?

Now, I realize that this scenario is a little extreme. You may be wondering “Why the heck would roads shut down? We would be evacuated before that happens! Our outside world cut off? Oh come on…that’s overdoing it a little!”.

Maybe. Maybe not…

Whether my scenario will ever become a reality, none of us can be sure. I don’t know about you, but, I want to be prepared just in case. This is where I introduce homesteading as a survival tool…a survival mindset if you will. A homestead is not accomplished overnight. It takes extreme dedication and hard work. The world of homesteading is a lifestyle and can be your biggest reward in life, your biggest ally. Survival begins at home.

“Where do I begin?” If you are now asking yourself this question then you have made that first step. You are considering it or have decided to give homesteading a go to ensure the long-term survival of every person in your household…your family!

Whether you live in an urban area or a rural area, it can be done. To give you an idea of what your homestead has the potential of becoming let’s go over your daily necessities and how those needs can be met based on where you are – a rural area or an urban area. For now, let’s call it your to-do list – a list of needed items and tasks to get you well on your way to having a homesteading lifestyle that can literally be life-saving!

The To-Do List

You’d be surprised how similar urban and rural homesteading can be. Of course, you can’t have cattle in your backyard or a corn crop on your apartment patio but there are ways to have your needs met no matter where you live.

Of course, we will not learn all there is to know about homesteading in this one article but, let’s go over the basic needs and your possible options.

Food

Food | Survivalism Meets Homesteading: The To-Do List

Rural area options: You can raise cattle, chickens (and other fowl), pigs, or goats. You can grow vegetable crops and/or raise honey bees.

Urban area options: As far as raising animals for meat you can raise backyard chickens, quail, and rabbits.

Hunting is another great option for urban (and rural) homesteaders. If you have room for an extra freezer then, by all means, consider taking advantage of this extra space.

You can also have a garden, even if you live in an apartment! Check out my previous article on container gardening. This is the perfect solution if you are limited on space.

Water

Water | Survivalism Meets Homesteading: The To-Do List

Rural area options: For a long-term water supply, a well is the best option. I’m not an expert on this so I would like to share this website. It’s a great resource of information for water well basics.

Also, for more tips and ideas, check out this great article on obtaining and storing water.

Urban area options: Unfortunately, for urban homesteaders, there aren’t too many options for an unlimited water supply. My suggestion here is every time you go shopping, just make it a habit of grabbing as many gallon jugs of water as you can. Your water supply will be built up in no time.

Collecting rainwater has been done in the past but, it actually has become prohibited in many states due to ongoing droughts. Click HERE for more detailed information regarding rainwater harvesting laws and legislation in your state.

Cleaning Products

Cleaning Products | Survivalism Meets Homesteading: The To-Do List

This section is for both rural and urban homesteaders. Handmade products such as soap can be made anywhere.

To make personal soap, check out this article on 23 DIY soap recipes you can make at home.

To make soap for cleaning purposes, check out this article on DIY liquid castile soap. It’s all natural and is easy on your skin.

For your laundry, check out this article on 9 DIY laundry detergent recipes.

Clothing

Clothing | Survivalism Meets Homesteading: The To-Do List

This section is also for rural and urban homesteaders. Learning how to crochet and how to sew will greatly benefit your whole family. It is also a great way to involve the kids in the whole homesteading lifestyle. When children are involved in this way they feel like they’re a part of something…something important.

It’s a great idea to stock up on crocheting and sewing supplies whenever you can. Another great idea is investing in a decent sewing machine. I just bought one for myself and I love it. It’s a great way to make your own clothes, blankets, etc.

James Yeager shows us a video on what food he has stored for bugging in:

The things I’ve listed thus far are the basics of homesteading. Your basic needs can be met in a homebound situation with the things I’ve listed so far. As I go along with this series, I will go in more detail and do my best to bring you more valuable information on this part of your journey.

Remember, survival starts at home. Being a survivalist is more than bug out bags and first aid kits. Being a survivalist is a mindset that should carry you in every part of your life, especially on your own turf.

Weather: The Natural Disaster Maker

Written by Guest Contributor on The Prepper Journal.

Editor’s Note: This post is another entry in the Prepper Writing Contest from Capt. Dennis. If you have information for Preppers that you would like to share and possibly win a $300 Amazon Gift Card to purchase your own prepping supplies, enter today.


One of the most fascinating subjects I had to study for a captain’s license was weather forecasting. Back in the late 70s there was no Weather Channel with satellite photos or live radar images to rely on. We had to learn to forecast weather by observing the sky, our surroundings, and recording the change in the barometric pressure. Wind speed is deduced by how it affects objects around us. Offshore, we could look at the wave tops to judge the wind velocity. On land we observe tree branches, weeds, or grass.

When I first started studying weather forecasting, I had several good books on the subject with a pocket weather guide the easiest reference to carry around. A guide helps with determining the different cloud formations and the type weather that would be associated them. Periodically logging, every ½ to 1 hour, the changing barometric pressure in association with the clouds added another layer to the forecast. Next was the direction and speed of the wind. Subsequently, by recording the rise or fall of the barometric pressure over time, the wind direction and speed, and the cloud formations, a forecast would come together. It is important to note that low pressure systems will produce much more wind with unstable weather conditions, where high pressure systems produce milder, more unchanging conditions.

C. Crane CC Pocket AM FM and NOAA Weather Radio with Clock and Sleep Timer

When I first started watching the Weather Channel, in the mid-90s, they focused totally on reporting the weather. If and when some storm or weather event was happening, then they sent people out into the field to cover it. Back in the studio, a meteorologist would analyze the conditions as the weather progressed. That was great for me, because I seeing what I had been studying for the past 20 years and witnessing just how far weather forecasting had advanced.

Today, as I begin my studies on prepping, I realize the importance of knowing some basic weather forecasting. After all, the worst natural disasters in America are weather related. Therefore, understanding what effects weather will have on most any disaster is of a primary concern.

Observing a wildfire, we predict how the wind and humidity affects the speed at which the fire spreads. When a chemical spill or explosion occurs, the weather will determine areas in danger from the fallout. Understanding basic weather principles helps when considering how heavy rainfall may affect a local dam or roadways. Other factors help us predict foggy conditions, hail, ice, or snow. A summer stable high pressure area tends to produce heat waves, which are the number one cause of weather related fatalities in the U.S. Here in Texas, we know all about heatwaves and droughts.

The worst disasters in America are weather related.

The worst disasters in America are weather related.

Predicting the effects of the changing weather around us, gives us the ability to prepare for it. Once the SHTF and we are left to our own instincts, the weather will be a major factor affecting our survival. Subsequently, here are some questions to think about.

  • The Weather Channel will be able help until the electricity goes out, then what?
  • Do you have an emergency weather radio; one with a hand crank or solar cells?
  • What about weather (wx) broadcast on Short Wave, AM, or HAM radio?
  • Where do you find the frequencies that broadcast weather info and at what time they transmit?
  • What about a small handheld anemometer that also displays barometric pressure?
  • A pocket guide to weather forecasting stored in your prepping gear?

All these questions are easily solvable.

As an example of local awareness, here along the Gulf Coast of Texas, we get tropical fronts in the Spring and Summer. The warm, humid Gulf air is drawn inland to the mid-Atlantic states. Cool fronts descend on this area as the jet stream comes south and the cool dry air meets the warm humid air and a front develops. Low pressure systems have a counter-clockwise rotation and high pressure rotate clockwise. Low pressure systems tend to move rapidly where high pressure will remain stationary for some extended period of time. High pressure tends to steer low pressure. Lifelong residents on the Gulf Coast know all about hurricanes and flooding and they both are associated with high and low pressure systems.

Topography also plays a huge part in how weather will affect a geographic location. Learn the local weather patterns for the different seasons of the year where you live or plan on heading when bugging out. Knowing the local weather patterns and having a basic understanding of the weather, you will be surprised at how easy you can forecast the weather. Discerning the wind speed and direction, cloud formations, and barometric pressure, you will have all the data you need at your figure tips. The data is not that difficult to collect.

Use your field guide to classify the clouds and for a reference. Purchase a small, portable, digital weather station to obtain wind speed and pressure data called an anemometer, which are readily available at a nominal price. Also, a compass to record wind direction, a good mechanical pencil, and a waterproof note pad to log readings every hour or 1/2 hour, depending on the situation. Thus, for a small investment, you can have the tools for forecasting the weather in your bug out bag. What I use cost less than a good hunting knife and takes up about the same space. I carry them when I go out shooting pictures or go to the beach just to practice. If you fish, a small weather station would be an excellent tool to forecast the quality of fishing and a good excuse to buy one.

Having some basic weather forecasting knowledge could be the difference in knowing when to seek shelter from a rapidly approaching front, or getting caught off guard trying to shelter after it hits. Weather related incidents cause the worst disasters in the U.S. Many times, just by having a basic understanding of the weather, how it is going to affect your community, and what you need to do for shelter, could save a lot of lives. Make the investment in inexpensive, easy to understanding weather forecasting tools and learn how to use them. It is an enjoyable way to gain one more step toward being better prepared when the grid goes down.

The Way Congress Is Handling Health Care Shows Why They Only Have A 17 Percent Approval Rating

U.S.-Capitol-Looking-South-Public-Domain-460x293

The Senate health care bill was unveiled on Thursday, and it appears to be dead on arrival.  At least four conservative senators say that they can’t vote for the current version because it doesn’t go far enough, while several moderate Republicans are expressing concerns that it goes too far in repealing popular Obamacare provisions.  You can read the full text of the bill here.  Since Democrats are going to be united in voting against any bill that the Republicans put forward, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell can only lose two Republican votes if he wants something to pass.  I don’t know how that is going to be possible, and so in the end we may be stuck with Obamacare for the foreseeable future and that would be a total disaster.

It is astounding to me that Republicans don’t want to pass the exact same clean Obamacare repeal bill that they got to Obama’s desk in 2016.  If they got that same bill to Trump’s desk, he would sign it.  Instead of trying to do everything at once, just repeal Obamacare and then start working on various pieces of the health care system one at a time.

According to Real Clear Politics, Congress currently has an average approval rating of just 17.6 percent.  It is an institution that has failed the American people over and over again, and we are never going to move things in a positive direction in this country until we do something to clean up that cesspool of filth and corruption.

If we truly want to fix health care in this country, we need to rebuild the entire system from the ground up based on free market principles.  But of course the bill that was just unveiled in the Senate simply tries to patch up the system we already have, and that ultimately won’t work…

The bill is very similar to the version of the House bill that passed last month but with some key changes. The text released Thursday showed the Senate legislation would still make major changes to the nation’s health care system, repealing Obamacare’s individual mandate, drastically cutting back federal support of Medicaid, eliminating Obamacare’s taxes on the wealthy, insurers and others. The Senate plan however would keep Obamacare’s subsidies to help people pay for individual coverage.

One thing that is good about the Senate bill is that it would eliminate Medicaid reimbursements for Planned Parenthood for 12 months, but of course this is something that would need to be made permanent as soon as possible.

A more detailed list of major changes that the Senate bill makes was posted on Zero Hedge

  • Gives subsidies illegal immigrants if they are working in the United States
  • Subsidies based on 350% Federal Poverty Level, not 400%.
  • Gets rid of business and consumer mandates with no penalty
  • Qualified plans don’t need to provide abortion coverage unless it’s to save the life of the mother
  • Each state gets 15-10 Billion for uninsurables
  • Cadillac tax is gone
  • OTC med tax is gone
  • HSA penalty tax is 10%
  • Prescription tax is gone
  • Medical device tax is gone
  • Business owners can deduct part d expense again
  • Deductible medical expenses are back to 7.5% instead of 10% AGI
  • Tanning tax is gone (ironic)
  • Net investment tax is gone
  • HSA deductibility will be adjusted every year for COLA
  • Both spouses can now make catch-up contributions to a family HSA
  • 60 day limitation to setting up an HSA account when first getting the plan for purposes of a current claim
  • No coverage for abortion clinics
  • Repeal of cost-sharing subsidy
  • MLR set by states
  • Grants for states battling opiod addiction (like mine)
  • CHIP is reauthorized
  • $5,000 app fee to create small business association health pool
  • Psychiatric coverage is limited to institutionalized individuals only, and for stays up to 30 days but not to exceed 90 days
  • The Senate draft health-care bill doesn’t currently include a provision penalizing people who don’t maintain continuous coverage

Overall, the Senate bill would be a bit of an improvement over Obamacare.

But a slight improvement over a major disaster is still a disaster.

Shortly after the bill was unveiled, four conservative senators announced that they cannot vote for the bill the way that it stands now…

However, four conservative Republican senators —Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Mike Lee of Utah— said they “are not ready to vote for this bill” because it does not go far enough in repealing Obamacare. Separately, moderate GOP Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada said he has “serious concerns” about the bill’s impact on Medicaid patients.

“Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor,” Paul, Cruz, Johnson and Lee said in a joint statement. “There are provisions in this draft that represent an improvement to our current health care system, but it does not appear this draft as written will accomplish the most important promise that we made to Americans: to repeal Obamacare and lower their health care costs.”

On the other end of the spectrum, a couple of RINO (Republican in name only) senators are expected to object to the bill because it would reduce funding for Planned Parenthood

The Senate bill would cut Medicaid funds from organizations that provide abortions for one year. It does not mention Planned Parenthood by name, but the legislation is clearly targeting the organization, which Republican leaders have promised to defund.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, have both expressed concerns about any legislation that defunds Planned Parenthood. Murkowski said Thursday she was still reviewing the bill’s provisions.

President Trump says that the Senate bill is not a finished product and that it is open for negotiation.

But I don’t see how in the world anyone is going to be able to craft something that will be acceptable to at least 50 Republicans in the Senate.

Unfortunately, even if the Republicans pass a health care bill somehow it will not fix the giant mess that our system has become.

One step in the right direction would be to legalize the kind of national buying groups that Rand Paul has proposed

Imagine if the tens of millions of people who belong to Credit Unions, or organizations like the NRA or ACLU, could negotiate as a group for health insurance and drug prices!  Imagine the insurance executives and drug companies coming on bended knee to negotiate for the business of tens of millions of people!

I have proposed legalizing nationwide Association Health Plans.  My Senate Bill 222 does just that.  I have advised the President to act through his Secretary of Labor to review existing law and make it explicitly known that national associations can negotiate as one to bring down insurance prices.

And I would also like to see an expansion of direct primary care and other models that bypass the health insurance companies entirely.

The health insurance companies collectively make a profit of 15 billion dollars a year, and they are a big part of what is wrong with our current system.

There is so much that needs to be done to fix things, and both parties are failing the American people.

So let’s hope that we can remove a lot of these incumbents in 2018, because we definitely need some fresh thinking in Washington.

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- This is another in the line of Ruger knives for everyday carry, hunting and tactical use.

And, it didn’t take a second look for Mary to recognize that this was a Ken Onion blade uniquely retro-styled.

The blade has the high-grind that Ken is famous for, making it ideal for just about any task you can think of, from filleting fish to skinning out an animal.

Ruger Hollow-Point Folding Knife , Columbia River Knife and Tool, R2302, with Frame Lock

The Ruger Hollow-Point Folder incorporates the IKBSTM ball bearing pivot system, the “flipper” for blade deployment is smooth and fast. The IKBS was invented by Flavio Ikoma and his friend Rick Lala of Korth. The “I” stands for Ikoma and the “K” for Korth. Ken combined the IKBS ball bearing system with modern knife features such as a frame lock mechanism, two-position pocket clip, lanyard hole and blade flipper for quick one-handed deployment. This uniquely styled knife is ideal for hunting treks and great for every day carry in the pack or pocket.

The blade is made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, which is tough, corrosion resistant and holds a good edge, yet is easy to re-sharpen when needed. Properly heat-treated for use as a knife blade (HRC 58-59), 8Cr13MoV is approximately equivalent to Japanese AUS-8 stainless.

FL Sheriff: If You’re Not Afraid Of A Gun, Get One

sheriff-judd

Polk County, Florida Sheriff Grady Judd is encouraging his constituents to purchase and carry a firearm. His reasoning? He wants residents in his area to be prepared in case there is a chance of an active shooter.

“The armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back,” Judd told FOX 13.  “He plans on having a gun, doing all the shooting, and you’re just a sitting duck. Well, the ducks need to shoot back.”

According to Sheriff Judd, residents should have a concealed carry permit (CCP) and they should regularly carry their firearm if they possess a CCP.

“If you’re not afraid of a gun, get one,” said the sheriff. “And if you need to shoot somebody, shoot ‘em a lot.”

In addition to encouraging residents to take their safety into their own hands, Sheriff Judd has done something others in his position have yet to do: train and deputize school officials.

Currently, Judd is working with faculty at Southeastern University to properly train them to use a firearm. As soon as there is an active shooter on campus at SU, faculty and staff are deputized, meaning they are allowed to use their firearm in self-defense.
