Prepared Not Unprepared - The Ready Center

Below is a link to a very short narrative sharing two fictitious conversations that take place immediately after an EMP attack on the United States. One conversation is between a husband and wife who are prepared for disasters. The other is between a husband and wife who are NOT prepared for disaster.

Although it is a very short read (3-5  minutes), it does an excellent job of communicating the possible realities of those who prepare, and those who do not.  Enjoy.

And as always, if we can help you and your family prepare in anyway, we would be honored to do so.

After dealing with the onslaught of “Memorial Day” photos all over Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and the rest of the internet, it seems necessary that someone remind America what Memorial Day is really about.  And what it’s not about.

The Ready Center Tactical

I found another old email from a friend and thought I’d share it.  If you own a gun, you will appreciate this. If you don’t own a gun, you should get one and learn how to use it.

A: Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.

B: Its always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

C: Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.

D: Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.

E: Never say “I’ve got a gun.” If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off. (I prefer the sound of a slug being chambered when you cock a shotgun)

F: The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.

G: The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win – cheat if necessary.

H: If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

J: In a life and death situation, do something . . . It may be wrong, but do something!

K: If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about? (I call it being prepared)

L: You can say ‘stop’ or ‘alto’ or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much a universal language. (more…)

Whats New At The Ready Center

  1. We have added over 100 New Products to our store since our last update and are expanding our product line almost daily!  Check it out!

Thankful - The Ready Center

Well, today is the day.  It’s the one day of the year when everyone (supposedly) takes a moment to be grateful for even the little things we have been blessed with.

The Ready Center is still a new entity in many ways.  We have only been in existence for a little over a year.  Yet despite our relatively short existence, we have so much to be thankful for.

We are thankful for you allowing us to help shape your individual and family preparedness plans.  We are thankful for you supporting this project by making purchases at our Ready Center Store.  And we are thankful for you caring enough about your loved ones to take preparedness seriously.  We are honored to be even a small part of it.

Today as we enjoy the Thanksgiving tradition, we ask that you please take the time to remember and pray for our service men and women who are unable to be with their families.

And if you have a moment, please take the time to comment below and tell us what you are thankful for.  We’d love to hear all about it.

Forever Thankful for You and Your Support,

The Ready Center

$10 Bill The Ready Center

Article submitted by Brian S. Kiefat @ The Ready Center

It’s that time again!  Time for what…?  Time to take seriously the safety and preservation of you and your family.  Time to take a moment and plan ahead.  Time to pull $20 out of your wallet and invest it in your future.  This month we recommend you take your 20 big bucks and exchange them for two $10 bills.  And for good reason…

As part of the Prepping on $20 a Paycheck series, the goal is to have you stocked with water, food, a pack full of supplies, and $100 emergency cash stocked away for REALLY rainy days.  When it comes to the “cash on hand”, we should all already have the following:

  1. One roll of quarters
  2. Ten $1 bills
  3. Four $5 bills

Total Amount So Far: $40

Today, we want you to bump up your post-apocalypse money stash up to a whopping $60.  The plan is to purposely vary your emergency cash denominations with the intent of you not losing money during barter/haggle (more…)

Veterans Day - The Ready Center

When I started The Ready Center over a year ago, I never realized how much the United States Veteran really was part of my life and community.  I am a veteran.  My wife is a veteran.  My father, grandfather, brother, father-in-law, almost every one of my friends, and 78% of our customers are US Veterans.

To all of you who have served or currently serve:  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  I am truly blessed to live amongst such honored warriors.

With all my heart and all my best,

Brian S. Kiefat
Owner – The Ready Center
