What if when SHTF you find yourself stranded without the convenience of a GPS or a compass? Or what if they brake due to some unfortunate event? Well, there’s no need to just give up and lose all hope, because there are other ways of telling direction and finding your way, even without the wonders of technology. And here are a few tips and hints.
There are a lot of options when it comes to the tactical / survival knives department.

The main order of business when it comes to a serious survival scenario is finding food. Should you find yourself on the run, in a wild and completely new territory, fresh sources of food might not be that hard to find. The first thing you can get your hands on are all sorts of weeds, [...]
As I understand it, more people seem to be taking a liking lately to the possibility (and reality) of long-range shooting.

If you have a rifle that’s powerful and accurate [...]
