About Alec Deacon

There is only one thing at the core of my being: unconditional love for my family. There is nothing in the world I wouldn`t do for my wife and kids. If that means I have to prepare for the worst-case-scenarios years in advance, then I`m going to it all the way. Passionately. And that`s how I became a survivalist. I`m constantly trying new ways of protecting my family`s future and well-being. And I`m sharing my experiences with all those Real Americans out there who are just as concerned for their loved ones as I am.

Tough Watches For Tough Preppers: Wristwatches Built To Last

Buying the perfect tactical wristwatch won’t be an easy task, especially if you consider the amount of models available on the market. There is no such things as the ultimate survival watch, but you can always find one that will suit your needs better than all the others. Consider the brand, the precision of the mechanism, battery life, the equipment it comes with (GPS, altimeter, compass, barometer, thermometer, etc.) and last but not least the price. Don’t go spending too much for too little.

Target Practice: How To Improve Your Shooting Skills Permanently

Shooting is serious business and should be treated as such.
