They did the same thing during Katrina back in 2005, anytime there's a "declared state of emergency" you can pretty much count in this happening
Doesn't matter if it's a natural disaster, or a man made disaster(false flag)

@Louis Loire - NY cue Alex jones screaming "1776 will commence again if you try to take the guns!"
>implying all the tubby Fudd boomers with their ARs won't piss themselves and hand them over at gunpoint when DHS shows up at their house in fucking MRAPS
That's what gets me with these "lone wolf" larpers
Like what do you think you're gonna do when a team of professionals trained for the absolute worst show up at your door?
Above guns and skills, I'd say numbers are the 1# most important thing in this kind of situation
I would rather be facing a SHTF happening scenario with 5 unarmed but good men then be by myself in full operator
For any poor-fags who don't have a gun in a free state, you can build your own ar for under 400 right now. Get some agency.
There's no excuse to not have a long gun at this point. Period.
Rifle length master race
I want to get an AR10. Should I just say fuck it and get an M1A?
Ar10 has more aftermarket and is cheaper and lighter
Easier maintenance too.
Is DPMS any good? I'm very suspicious of an AR10 for $500.
I've heard dpms are garbage. But I also heard that .308 is too rough on the ar platform and there are a lot of problems
Yet people seem to like them so...
Killing hogs with .308 sounds great
I love the .308
I'd go socom 16 personally
@joe broebbels#1012 18" master race
Aero upper and lower, cmmg barrel, stag buffer assembly, and palmetto for the small parts.
About to put a strike industries J comp on the muzzle.
Anyone stocking up on these?
Have some of those and some zpacks I picked up internationally. You're gonna need a higher dosage and preferably fishmox (amoxicillin) for a wider range of effectiveness to common infections
You may need anywhere from 500 to 1000mg a day for 10 days or so
But all depends on the bacteria type infection
Think you might be thinking of something other than doxy, the highest dose I know of is 125(?) Under 200 I know for sure. It's usually 1 100mg b.i.d. amoxicillin and clindamycin are usually on the higher end like 500. I got the capsules because it is possible to make a drip for post op or septicemia.
Yeah that's what I was referring to the amoxicillin when I mentioned fish mox
Doxy is fine though, didn't think of the drip that's a good call
After i get my RN I'm thinking about doing some volunteer work in foreign lands. I know, I know working on dirt people for free, but working in an improvised OR sounds like a hell of a learning experience. I'm wanting to learn how to do local anesthetic basic surgeries for very just in case scenarios.
Work in Europe
Well probably better to make your learning mistakes on muds than huwhytes
Yeah. Not to sound selfish for our group but I'd prefer you learn in rough conditions. Might prove more useful down the road.
Just watched this and am in no mood to help people of color. Blood currently boiling.
@Deleted User work in eastern Europe fuck the browns let them die naturally
I mean, like was said, better to make mistakes on the muds lol, it's a double edge sword
I could see that.
The people of Ukraine sure could use some help though
You're not gonna fuck up brother. You're gonna help. You'll do great.
That video is seriously messed up.
I am seething with anger
Everyone report it
Have we covered primitively fire techniques?
Let's do upside down fire
My personal favorite is the Dakota fire hole. I really want to try the self feeding fire though
I haven't tried a rocket stove either.
I've heard good things though
I haven't tried one either. I would love to hear some feedback from someone who's used one though..
I'll dedicate a lesson to them
They can be a pain in the ass
I really want to get skilled at hand and bow drill techniques of fire making.
@The Huwhyte Ulf - VA#6897 we should get together and practice
I would have to agree. Just getting settled in with a new job so I'm waiting to see what my schedule will be.
Watch "How to make emergency survival biscuits (Hardtack)" on YouTube
Guys fuck MREs and fancy stuff. Take the hard tack pill
Also just fwi this guy left out salt, you need the salt
Actually that video sucks. You're suppose to bake hard tack for hours.
Watch "Ship's Bisket - Hard Tack: 18th Century Breads, Part 1. S2E12" on YouTube
Though his are kind if thick compared to the civil war stuff
I have some hard tack I made around three years ago that is still good
Well, based on some of the footage so far, what is some stuff you guys have gathered from the shooting, and what would you have done differently in the crowd? I'd bet money that guy was using a bumpfire stock from the sounds of it, might want to buy one now before they're illegal.
I'm no expert but I have seen guys that claim the fire was too rapid and to consistent to be a bump fire stock. What do you think?
You can get a full auto ak, but it's about 15-20k$ or buying full auto parts, which puts you on watch usually. Basically if you buy full auto/sbr/sbs/DD parts, and own the corresponding gun, they arrest you for intent.
Not to mention if he was stationary (in a hotel room) using a bipod, it's even easier to do sustained fire.
Anybody here in the Midwest? I would like to establish a survival retreat and confidence building courses.
@jaybird1 Yes, Im in north dakota, sounds like a great idea! What would the class curriculum look like? Basic bushcraft I can make an educated guess but im more interested in what you have in mind for the confidence building?
@Brandon Ironside- ND My first question is, how many acres do you have available? I'm thinking a 3 acre obstacle course, like basic was. Second, long range (300 yards) firing range. Third, 10 acres for foraging, shelter building, primitive fire and medicinal plants identity. The course would be 3 weeks...
I have acess to 1200 acres of farm land(though not all one piece) the main piece that is ideal would be about 300 acres, If we did somehting like this it would have to be during the winter when there isnt farmers out and about. I also have some 3 12" steel gongs that could be used for long range shooting.
I dont think I could get 3 weeks off, I think cramming as much as possible into a weekened would be ideal.
And I dont have land we could permantly alter for an obstacle course, doing bushcraft stuff, and long range shooting is all i could handle there.
Wow, 300 acres would be plenty. If we cant alter the terrain then we would focus on strength training and running. Your land would be perfect. I'm thinking 30 push ups in less than 2 mins, run 2 miles in less than 13 mins. After that, we would move onto long range shooting.
Honestly, there is no way to condense to a weekend. At a minimum 2 weeks.
This group will be the elite of IE
The only way to condense it would be to recruit people already physically in shape
This group would be the strongest, focused, and most trained group in IE
I'm sure if Eli put out a memo that we are looking to establish a elite group people would apply. We need to make it clear it is a 3 week course that aims at establishing a elite group.
This is a pretty big goal, and an exciting one I would like to see happen however I think your next step is determine if leadership is actually interested in making this happen. If not getting a group of volunteers together for a weekened might be a starting point too.
Unfortuanatly IE is not super well funded at this point also so paying for this all is something to consider
It's a big goal, but even Nathan talked about modeling after generation identitiare. We need to physically train and establish true fighters. The cost would be on the applicants at $200 a week. They will have to purchase their own 30-6 rifle, bring 200 rounds of bullets, and all necessary items (tent, food, etc). I'm telling you, people will join, they will apply.
I guarantee if Eli put out a memo that we are trying to establish an elite group of fighters we would be flooded with applicants.
Its possible, I have zero pull with him, if you can make any progress on it keep us informed.
Haha... I have zero pull as well. If nothing else we can recruit within this group. The only thing I can offer IE is my military training. I'm 38 years old, I'm limited on what I can do.
@Brandon Ironside- ND , if nothing else you and I can set up a sniper division
I agree our young men should be trained in bushcraft skills, marksmenship, physically fit, etc and your military expierence is valuable with that, but for now I think most of that type of training is going to happen through voluneeters and setting up stuff on the local level, IE is under 2 years old and most of the funding is going toward building infastructure of the orginization and activism.
I will speak with my state coordinator. I know he has the ear of Eli...
I will be in touch with you
Can anyone recommend a good canteen/mess kit for a go bag?
I'd just check in any military surplus store
You're bound to find something good
@Deleted User What is you cooking setup going to be? alchohol stove, open flame, canister setup?
This is what I use unless its going to be below 0 degrees. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001UEL76Q/ref=asc_df_B001UEL76Q5198964/?tag=hyprod-20&creative=394997&creativeASIN=B001UEL76Q&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167119746601&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5875188560344401524&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9060150&hvtargid=pla-84153121286
And I use a stainless steel nalagene for water https://store.nalgene.com/product-p/1778-1002.htm I have had camelbaks and USGI 1 quarts in the past, they are fine if you live in a warm enviornent but where i live , my water freezing is a common thing so i like to be able to melt it if that happens on my stove.
Jetboil ftw lads
At fort drum, my jetboil made the field bearable, love mine. If you run out of fuel, makes for a sad camper though.
Anyone try palladium boots? I know they're pretty urbanized but I've heard some good things
@Uilliam I wish I knew more about boots think I'm going to get new pair soon and am looking at Danner boots, heard good things about them
I have a pair and they’re great and pretty light. But I’m looking at maybe a less bulky design
Nalgenes are on point
Salomon makes a great hiking boot got me threw a crap ton of miles in the white mountains. And that hiking is rugged.
@Admiral Tolwyn - NH#5491 Bro. White Mountains are no joke right? They turned me back twice in the middle of May because of ice storms
Sure thing man. Been slacking lately, but I'll try to post some more stuff soon
😃 I wasn't being passive aggressive I swear lol
@Deleted User Thanks, I'll be posting another one tonight, I know you like your old school gear so this one will be a treat 😀
I'm taking it way way back
haha i look forward to it
@Deleted User No i wasn't haha. I have been fasicinated with Otzi since i first heard about him. How he died is extremely interesting too. Makes me ponder how much I would really need to survive with, also spurred my interest in making primitve tools. Have you seen the youtube channel "primitive technology" guy has 6 million subscribers here's one you would love being a Celt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BN-34JfUrHY
I love that channel.
You may like this guy. He was required reading when I was a freshman.
Yep haha I read his book back in the day I think it was called Pathfinder, good read.
Is that a beech sapling he's using for the handle?
At about the 3 min mark I'd worry the area around the head would splinter
He says "Don't let the sides of the head touch the sides of the hole or it will split." Smart!
And to put it between two knots
I think he said hes using Ash for the handle. The shawn woods guy is pretty interesting he made reproduction Otzi longbow and arrows and went out and killed a deer with it, it was extremely effective.
This is one of my favorite channels
@Thomas Morrow That was neat, thanks for sharing I'll be checking out some of his other videos when I get time!
Watch "Scissor Deadfall Survival Trap In Action. Trapping Killer Skunks. Primitive Technology" on YouTube
This guys channel is awesome
Watch "Paiute Deadfall Trap in Action! Catching Rats and Mice. Bushcraft Survival Skills." on YouTube
Watch "Making a Blue Glass Arrowhead from an Antique Canning Jar (HD)" on YouTube
Anyone @here an expert on rawhide?
@StrawberryArmada you talking about tanning skins or doing leather work?
No I need untanned rawhide
I just wondering about removing the fat, fur, etc.
If you buy rawhide all the good stuff is already off the hide. It just hasn't gone through the tanning process so it dries to be hard.
I'm planning to get it from my brother since he hunts anyway
Oh word, that's above my pay grade. I only kept the meat. Haha, sorry
RIP. Is fine. I've just never worked with a carcass before. I'm sure it's not that hard
These next few weeks I’m going to test how my two wool army blankets perform in 30 degree weather, then 20. Then hopefully this winter I’ll test them in the teens. @Brandon Ironside- ND
@Deleted User i made a bed roll out of some heavy duck cloth that i treated with linseed oil then lined it with 2 surplus wool blankets. Used an old sheet that i sewed down the side and bottom as a removable liner. I never got cold sub 30 degrees. Never got below 0 though.
Dude linseed oil is crazy flammable. It's spontaneously combustible.
I use almost everday.
@Deleted User You know I was thinking about comparing our sleeping set ups during the trip. You by far had the fastest setup/packup sleeping system and lightest overall so heres my thoughts.
Note: On Saturday near the river it dropped down to high 30’s and low 40s at night according to an online weather archive search.
USGI MSS Patrol bag (mine)- Weight 2.3 Ibs – rated to 30 – 50 degrees. Dressed in full clothes and in a grid fleece pullover that was the most I would push it with that bag and honestly would have appreciated an additional fleece blanket.
USGI Wool Blanket (Yours)- Weight 3.5-4 ibs (best I could find googling) – seemed like you were pretty comfortable in full clothes also.
Thoughts: It will be interesting to see how far the blanket will go with the tests. Once there is complete weight/temperature ratio for the wool blanket we can compare them better.
Additional note: we both had ridgerest sleeping pads and my “tent” was really just a bugnet that didn’t provide weather protection.
@Deleted User Could you explain the linseed oil/duck cloth part, is that for waterproofing, do you also add wax?
@RevStench From my understanding linseed oil can be flammable depending on the medium it is applied for example on a cotton cloth it can catch fire, but it is used all the time on wood stocks of firearms(which heat up) and is fine, though thats just my impression.
Oh ok, I honestly should know that haha. Guess that explains why I've had rags catch fire and never the wood.😆
Just something my grandpa taught me for making tarps. I may have just been lucky all these years not burning alive.
You're good, I had to look it up. Here from Wikipedia, I know great source haha "Rags soaked with linseed oil stored in a pile are considered a fire hazard because they provide a large surface area for oxidation of the oil, and the oil oxidises quickly. The oxidation of linseed oil is an exothermicreaction, which accelerates as the temperature of the rags increases. When heat accumulation exceeds the rate of heat dissipation into the environment, the temperature increases and may eventually become hot enough to make the ragsspontaneously combust"
@RevStench all i read there was something about you needing to be hit with a rock for being a big brain ni🇧 🇧 a
@Brandon Ironside- ND looking at 38 degrees tonight. Gonna sleep out,
By the way, hiking with a dog is actually a great way to stay warm on cold nights if you use blankets. Feed em well and they’re like furry blast furnaces.
@Deleted User Reminds me of when i was young and riding in the car with my father, a song came on and he told me the band was "three dog night" Then procceded to explain three dog night was an indian term used to describe a night that was really cold and they would bing 3 dogs in the teepee to help with them for warmth.
But anyways good luck, let me know how it turns out
Well, we’ll see how loyal my dogs are. We have a dog door, so we’ll find out whether they choose me or the nice warm house. I’m wearing sweat pants, a sweatshirt, and wool socks.
Went well. Very warm. No puppies. Treacherous bastards.
@Deleted User hey I have a question for you too 😆
That blanket you used the other night outside, where did you get it? I live in a 118 year old refrigerator during the winter months.
Ok, I will.
This here’s a piece of poplar. Gonna try and make a fire bow today.
Tried last night using a pine drill. No luck. Going for hardwood today
So...off to the rainy forest for:
1 hardwood drill
@Deleted User I would try moving the hole right next to the side of the board, to scrape the ember pile that long of a distance will likely be challenging, here's a quick diagram, keep us updated!
Thanks. You think a hardwood drill will be better?
Gonna use a sapling for the bow
Need a socket too
quick google search: Your first step is to find the best wood for your spindle and your fireboard. Generally, you should make these two parts of your set from the same type of wood (if for some reason this is not possible, make sure that the spindle is a harder wood than the fireboard). Good choices for your spindle and fireboard are:
Red Elm (Slippery Elm)
Cedar - one of the best choices
Yucca - one of the best choices
For your thunderhead you'll want to use a pine or hemlock knot. The trick is to get a piece of wood from the fir family that has a lot of resin that will help lubricate the thunderhead.
Isn’t poplar good too?
For fireboard I mean
yep found this: "The base board should be cut from a soft wood. Poplar/cottonwoods and Saguaro ribs are two examples"
@Brandon Ironside- ND okay we switched to a cedar drill (spindle) on a poplar board and we have some good smoke going
@Deleted User Great, obviously for this methods tinder is going to be huge, what you using?
Well since everything around here is soaked right now I’m going with dryer lint
I wish I had a cedar fireboard
Videos, if you can
So far I just have a video of the smoke
@Deleted User How did round two go for the wool blanket?
Doing it tonight. 19 degrees predicted
New knife benchmade buschcrafter!
very sturdy full tang knife, off to touch up the edge!
Bad ass. Heavy enough to work wood?
Tent shell on top
@Deleted User yes! that's why I got this one, thick spine, full tang, should perfect for wood splitting and general buschcrafting duties!
looks like a good setup, let us know how it turns out!
Nice. I was wanting after a heavier blade when I was trying to cut out notches for that fireboard last week.
Tonight, wearing alpaca socks, wool socks over them, jeans, undershirt, flannel, Irish sweater, and a beanie. Not wearing thermals
@Deleted User are you a popsicle?😆 It's 29 here in downtown Louisville. I know it was freezing for you last night.
@RevStench 18 degrees! Two wool blankets with tent laid over top worked great. Only my right hip was cold for some reason, but I wasn't even wearing thermals underneath.
You're a madman. That's cool that you were able to handle that temp. My blankets are in the mail.
I think you’ll love em. Obviously an isomat is key
I have a mat that works pretty well. We're going camping the first weekend of December. So I'm trying to get cold weather gear.
This will be my first cold weather camping trip
What’s the temp lol in December in your neck of the woods?
Well usually it's not that bad, but it's like 30 this morning, but next week it'll be in the low 60s. The weather is crazy here because were in a valley near the Ohio river. In December we've had freezing snowy ones and we've had them where it's like fall temperatures.
Same here, frankly, but it gets a little colder
We’ve had summer temps in the upper 90s and even crossed a hundred a couple of times.
I have very good doc. Werner Herzog is a great film maker
@Mark Vandal Herzog! I met him once. Guy is very big brained I hope he is secretly red pilled
I don't know he is german
Plus he’s a madman. Just the fact he got Fitzcaraldo made is insane
How did you meet him
Yeah he grew up in the aftermath of ww2
At a film festival
Little Deiter needs to fly is a great doc
Deiter was a POW and lived in the bush after escaping camp
Cave of Forgotten Dreams is a good Herzog doc
Going camping with some friends this weekend. Any considerations I should make that I might forget? We're going over who's bringing what right now. It'll just be an overnight campout at a campsite.
Presuming no rain, you’re good with pretty light gear - tent, isomat, bag (I like army blankets), set of thermals...standard stuff
yeah since it's just an overnight trip we're not gonna need too much, but I haven't been camping in a long time so I wanted to just make sure no one would think of any basics that I would forget
Water purification kit, fire starting kit, food procurement tools, etc. nothing too crazy.
Also, speaking from experience, if you're expecting rain, don't forget to keep all the firewood you've collected high and dry...
My light weight camping setup.
Good ole cowboy camping
Double isomat ftw
Anyone hunt? I’ve got two cow elk tags this year, one for archery and the other rifle.
