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…)

The Ready Center - Survival Summit

Article Submitted by Brian S. Kiefat @ The Ready Center

Since the 20th of this month there has been a 5 day Survival Summit going on via the internet.  There is a collection of around 25 “experts” that are giving different lectures covering various aspects of preparedness.  Some of the topics include making your own biodiesel legally, identifying edible plants, how to fortify your home on a budget, the correct way to build a Bug Out Bag, how to grow food without irrigation, urban survival, alternative dentistry, the combat mindset, so on and so on.  It is online and completely free.

The Survival Summit website says this collaboration was designed “to be an opportunity for preppers and survivalist to get access to amazing presentations from the industries foremost experts no matter where you live.”

I’ve checked out 2 of the presentations so far.  One was pretty dang good.  I wish I would have taken notes.  The other was a total and complete waste of my time.

There is some very useful information to be gleaned from this, but be prepared to put up with an idiot or two as well.  Check out the promotional video below to learn more.  Sign up and “attend” the summit by following this link.

Let us know what you think.

And as always, MAKE READY!

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…)
