Although it sounds strange, I found alot of good info from Max Brooks book, Zombie survival Guide. There were some post by Sub_Umbra that are FANSTASTIC! This guy was in NOLA during Katrina, and stayed put in his house for about 8 weeks - without assistance.

The site is about flashlights, but the info he gives is awesome.

Comment of the week lol

To ignore your rights is a giant slap in the face to our Constitution, our freedom, and every single man and woman who has died protecting them.
We didn't lose our rights overnight. To think we'll get them back overnight is simply foolish.

And Farnhams Freehold for fun too.


Just finished that book last week.. I was reading it because I've been reading a lot of Heinlein lately. I was pleasantly surprised at the survivalist aspects of the story.
Also amazing how many of his books have firearms for personal defense references as well.

Farnham's Freehold is a good one - try "tunnel in the Sky" for another good RAH survival read. I have read all his books currently in print - my favorite is "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress."

Stephen King's "The Stand" is a long book about post-pandemic. If you're into King or never read him, this is a good one. It's strange, and doesn't concentrate specifically on survival tactics, but he does a lot of research with his subject matter.

Some people strive to make their mark on the world. I strive to make my mark on a paper plate.

"Volk's Game", vicious brutal Russian fiction with anti-hero Volk; one of a series by Brent Ghelfi. And Andy McNab former SAS novels. But I now add that families with children will sort of have it rougher, and will therefore have to be or get tougher real quick. Although they can count on each other for mutual defense and support, of course. :twisted:

Given that Heinlein is a staple of Libertarian reading, it's actually not so surprising. The guy was consistent in his advocacy of self defense, freedom of speech and he had no issues with a guy being interested in a gal either.

I just finished "Survivors: A Novel of the Comming Collapse" by J.W. Rawles. (Believe it or not this was found at the local library!) Which is a Novel that runs con-currently with his earlier novel: "Patriots." An entertaining read - but lighter on actual survivalism material.

I am ready to start researching with Richard Marcinko's and Jim DeFelice's latest, if not greatest "ROGUE WARRIOR" novel, "DOMINO THEORY"; while reading my latest gun magazines, if you know what I mean, which is not hard as long as I can use my dear old mama's credit card. I also view and listen to "Dual Survival" on TV, and hope and pray that it is never me who has to exist and survive in the wild; because it does not look like fun, with or without a gun. :roll:

A new book called: The Dog Stars, by author Peter Heller - great long term survival post SHTF read. As an added bonus, the protagonists' partner is a Misanthropist, gun-nut like Rich who had stocked up on guns, grenades & mortars prior to SHTF. Highly recommended read - I just got a copy from the local library, and burned through it in a day & a half. :egrin:

I guess that I am gonna have to give that book a try again. I got through the first 75 or 80 pages before I had to put it down. The plot seemed "slow" and I just couldn't seem ot "get into it".

I'll try to stick with it a little longer.
