Episode-1487- Ian McCollum on Military Surplus Rifles and More

inrangetv

Check out InRange.TV

Ian McCollum is a firearms writer and researcher specializing in arms from the 1880s to the 1950s or so.  He is interested in the mechanical details of different firearms designs as well as their use in practical field situations.  Ian has run a web site on these guns called Forgotten Weapons for about 4 years, and his work has appeared in publications including Gun Digest and the Canadian Press.

Ian has just recently released the first episode of his new project, InRange TV – an online TV-style show focusing on interesting factual and detailed content, without the drama and BS that is endemic to gun programs on cable TV.

He joins us today to discuss how older guns can be just as good as the modern AR-15 while costing less and looking better.  We start out with what Ian feels is the current best deal in old military arms for long range shooting.  We then discuss how shooting skills translate from one type of gun to another.

We continue with some of the best ways to improve your shooting skills and have a discussion as to is the AR15 really even a “modern firearm” at all and have we gotten out of hand with accessories, add ons, etc.  We finish up with why Ian feels that all gun-related shows on cable TV so horrendously dumb and why Internet Television may be the answer to better gun related video content.

Episode-1486- 20 Simple Prepper Steps Every American Should Take that Most Don’t

This is NOT the place to be when you start your journey as a modern survivalist.

This is NOT the place to be when you start your journey as a modern survivalist.

Yesterday I did a “back to fundamentals” show on permaculture, today I am going to do one on basic preparedness.  On some levels it is great that prepping has become its own “industry”.  This brings some unique products to the market and allows preppers to buy from companies that think like they do.  On the other hand, it has also attracted parasites to our world.

Said parasites hype every news story to infer the end of the world, dollar, oil, _____, will be here in just a few short months.  They cite “CIA insiders” that are likely some dweeb that grew up reading spy novels to make their case and other nonsense.  Then networks like Discovery get on board and do nonsense TV shows like Doomsday Preppers, and other BS.

The problem is the person simply concerned by events like hurricanes, fires, earthquakes, realistic pandemic threats, loss of liberty, sustained inflation begins to feel prepping is for quacks.  Or they feel that prepping is so expensive that it is just not possible anyway.

The truth is prepping doesn’t require a mountain retreat, it doesn’t require a bunker and it certainly doesn’t require 20 pallets of MREs down in your basement.  What it actually requires us to do is simply think more like our grandparents and great grand parents and less like modern slaves who worship authority, conformity and debt.

Join Me Today As We Discuss these Twenty Rules…

  • Step one – keep a food log
  • Step two – keep a spending log
  • Step three – perform a risk assessment on your life and geography
  • Step four – build a basic black out kit
  • Step five – build a basic first aid kit
  • Step six – start copy canning
  • Step seven – cut two expenses, just two of your choosing
  • Step eight – Build a basic 72 Hour Kit – BOB
  • Step nine – buy some source of back up power – any source
  • Step ten – get some source of back up heating
  • Step eleven – build just two 7.5 gallon tubs or four 5 gallon buckets emergency food
  • Step twelve – store a minimum of 100 gallons of water, more if you can
  • Step thirteen – acquire a minimum or two emergency radios
  • Step fourteen – acquire some means of back up communications
  • Step fifteen – build a basic documentation pack
  • Step sixteen – build up over time a 30 day supply of commercial long term storage food
  • Step seventeen – learn at least 2 methods of food storage
  • Step eighteen – find local food producers and visit often, learn about seasonal opportunities
  • Step nineteen – learn to cook 10 new recipes (try to use some of your storables)
  • Step twenty – store up a reasonable amount of COH (cash on hand)
  • Step twenty-one (bonus) – affirm your right and responsibility to survive

Episode-1485- What is this Permaculture Stuff and Why Should I Even Care

The Effect of Pulsing Poultry over One Year

The Effect of Pulsing Poultry over One Year

From time to time I back up and do a sort of “back to basics” show on certain subjects.  Often things like Modern Survival Philosophy or basic preparedness.  But yesterday I realized the word “permaculture” is tossed around at TSP constantly but likely many listeners don’t really understand it at all or perhaps even know what it is.

Additionally many people wonder why they should even care.  Isn’t permaculture just hippies rolling in mud?  No, it is more like Greening Deserts, Greening More Deserts and perhaps even using cows to restore entire eco systems and feed half the world.  It also might be completely redesigning the largest farm in Jordan, building a cold climate sustainable profitable orchard or perhaps making a back yard feed a family.

So today we take a look at Permaculture from a basics of understanding and functionality standpoint.  I think that both people totally new to permaculture and those who are full time practitioners will enjoy this look into the design science of permaculture.

Tune in today as we discuss…

  • What is permaculture – beyond the typical definition
  • What permaculture is not and misconceptions about it and the people behind it
  • What is the prime directive and the three ethics
  • Understanding techniques are techniques they are not permaculture
    • Swales
    • Hugulkulture
    • Food Forests – A good teachable example
      • The High Canopy
      • The Low Tree
      • Shrub
      • herbaceous
      • rhizome
      • cover crops
      • vertical climbers
  • What are zones and sectors
  • Permaculture on a small scale
    • Intensive gardens
    • Urban food forests
    • Reuse and recycling
    • Back yard engineering
  • Permaculture on a broad acre scale
    • Can not be run like “conventional systems”
    • Not always called “permaculture”
    • Absolutely requires the integration of Animals
    • Requires a time phased approach
    • Largely misunderstood both by main stream and “purple breathers”
  • The simple truth
    • The unaltered ethics and directive are universal
    • This is a system of design, not just a way to grow food
    • If permaculture “doesn’t work” natural systems don’t work
    • Truthfully modern agriculture doesn’t work if fairly judged
  • Final Thoughts

This Monday’s Prepper Scenario

Your home has been destroyed by fire.  Luckily no one was killed or even severely injured.  Most anything of value in your home is ruined and/or gone.  You are left with the clothes on your back, what you keep in your vehicles and any items that are in a DETACHED structure only.  Describe now how you begin to put the pieces back together, how you deal with insurance, etc.  If you keep documents, money, etc in a firebox or firesafe you can assume those survived.

Last Monday’s Prepper Scenario

This one is strait from my interview with Masaad Ayoob if you remember it. Whether you do or do not put yourself into this scenario. A man attempts to break into you home and manages to do so. You hear the commotion and pick up your gun. You find the man in your home, you order him the ground but he comes at you, you shoot him, he is down dying in a pool of blood. For what ever reason you are alone in your home, no other witnesses. You now must dial 911, how do you handle everything from this point forward.

Episode-1481- The Backyard Nursery

Goji Cuttings Rooted in 5 Days Flat!

Goji Cuttings Rooted in 5 Days Flat!

In the last two years I have planted over 400 trees, bushes, vines, etc. on my property.  Right now I have 150 small support trees (locust and autumn olive) waiting to be planted into my food forest.

The sheer variety of what will be budding out and going into full on growth mode in 2015 has me very excited.  There are over 20 varieties of apple, an equal if not higher variety of plumbs, 6 different low chill cherries and more.  I still have to find a home that will meet the needs of 10 bush hazels.

I have even found a spot I call current row and it is now planted with 7 currant varieties, this little sweet spot is perfect to help currants survive my harsh climate.  I have many varieties of autumn olive going like gang busters, three different mull berry species and comfrey nestled down for the winter everywhere.

It has all been a ton of fun, but let me tell you what I have learned during this time…

1.  Plants are trees are fascinating
2.  The variety of what is available in any climate is staggering
3.  Even small spaces can be planted with dozens or hundreds of trees
4.  For every tree you are going to want 10 or more other perennial plants
5.  Finding what you want is often difficult and highly seasonal
6.  The big one, plants and trees are expensive!

This has led me to begin the planning and development of my own back yard nursery.  Today I will discuss that and the things are are currently building and installing.

I will also discuss the opportunity that exists in this space for running your own business and the various ways you can get started.

Episode-1480- What Might a Free Market Education System Look Like

Perhaps Not Such a Bad Idea

Perhaps Not Such a Bad Idea

Note - There will be ZERO teacher bashing in this show.   Well zero teacher bashing as a wholesale group anyway, I promise.

Yesterday I pointed out how many problems and divisions in society would not even exist if the state were not involved in key issues.  Once again I dared touch the sacred cow of pubic education.  Once again my inbox is crammed full of hate mail because I am “bashing teachers” when the truth is the word teacher wasn’t even used in yesterday’s show.

Why this reaction?  Because logical and other wise intelligent and sane people become irrational even to the state of temporary insanity when something they see is necessary is called unnecessary.  They may not know why they even believe it to be necessary, they just do and that alone causes at times even a violent response when anyone even infers that they are wrong.

School is important and an education is priceless.  Every child has a fundamental right to an education, everyone knows that right?  There are both truths and inaccuracies in those statements and combined they create what we call a logical fallacy.  What is a logical fallacy?  Logical fallacies are unsubstantiated assertions that are often delivered with a conviction that makes them sound as though they are proven facts.  This is often done by taking true facts and combing them with total fabrication or unsubstantiated conclusions based on some of the actual facts.

In this case “school is important”, well no, education is important, but school is only one form of education.  School is not required for education to even occur.

Every child has a right to an education is another one.  We must first understand that a right as used above means the following…

A moral or legal entitlement to have or obtain something or to act in a certain way.

This means that there is a moral and legal obligation to provide everyone with an education.  Is that actually the case?   I don’t believe it is, not in the way we are led to believe anyway.

This also omits a critical reality, that every right comes with corresponding responsibilities.  Further that the State is to ensure rights primary by not oppressing them or allowing others to oppress them.

For instance your right to free speech comes with responsibility to not say incite violence or yell fire in a crowded theater.  More over, the state isn’t responsible to provide you a venue for your free speech nor to force people to listen to you, only to ensure your rights are not trampled on, nor are they permitted to impede them.  This brings us to yet another fallacy, the “fallacy of omission” which is…

Errors occur because the logician leaves out necessary material in an argument or misdirects others from missing information.

The reality is there are hundreds of fallacies and almost all of them at one point or another could be applied to most things we hold sacred such as public education.

Today I would like to examine what a true free market education system might look like.  Once we do I ask that you use logic and reason to determine for yourself not if such a system would be perfect, only would it be better than what we have.  Every system is flawed, this doesn’t mean a system with flaws can’t be better than a system with even greater flaws.  To assert that a flawed system isn’t a better system simply because it has some flaw, when the underlying system itself has greater flaws, is also a fallacy, can anyone name that fallacy?

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • Is every child entitled to a good education
  • Does the current system provide a good education to every child
  • Who’s children are they anyway
  • Why teachers are not to blame
  • Why teachers can’t fix the system and why many would not if they could
  • Answering the big but what if style questions…
    • But who decides if an education is valid
    • How would we ensure standards are met or that standards are valid
    • What about children that can’t afford a “good education”
    • Then how would we insure access to education if not provision of education
    • But students with wealthier parents get a better education this way
    • But every other modern nation provides public education
    • But children need school for social skills, to meet other people, etc.
    • This system will create an unfair advantage for many
    • But we have to at least make sure that the average person can read, write and do math
  • Why we must abolish compulsory public education to solve most of our current problems
  • The system I would institute to wean society off the current system
    • No child can be compelled to go to any school ever, the end
    • The state can continue to offer education but not compel attendance
    • A taxes funding education are to be lowered in an evenly apportioned manner as students exit the system
    • Any person or entity may set up any form of education as longs as the activities conducted are other wise legal
    • Any group or entity may set up a standards body, publish its own standards and issue certifications
    • The only state over sight is contract resolution criminal police enforcement
    • The contract resolution component must be voluntary
  • Why a free market system would work better even if it has flaws

Make sure if you submit content for a feedback show that you put something like “comment for jack”, “question for jack” or “article for jack” in the subject line to assure proper identification for my screening process.

Please understand I receive several hundred emails a day and can’t get them all on the air.

I also do put out a lot of information on Facebook from emails that I can’t fit on the program though so keep em coming.

Join Me Today As I Respond to Your Emails On

  • Why I was wrong about the Eric Garner case and why it makes things worse
  • Which wolf are you feeding, a cool facebook meme that makes you think
  • What happens to our biggest arguments if the state is removed
  • How lawyers scalped 1.2 billion from social security last year
  • Have our people become cowards that actually fear liberty

This Monday’s Prepper Scenario

This one is strait from my interview with Masaad Ayoob if you remember it.  Whether you do or do not put yourself into this scenario.  A man attempts to break into you home and manages to do so.  You hear the commotion and pick up your gun.  You find the man in your home, you order him the ground but he comes at you, you shoot him, he is down dying in a pool of blood.  For what ever reason you are alone in your home, no other witnesses.  You now must dial 911, how do you handle everything from this point forward.

Last Monday’s Prepper Scenario

Riots have erupted in your area, similar to the Ferguson riots. The cause is not really relevant so we will leave it out. The key is that these riots are not likely to spread to your house BUT you and your spouse (if you have one) work near the area where they are occurring. Additionally you have some concern over the location of your children’s school. What are your procedures and protocols for travel, when to stay home and how to deal with potential spread of the danger.

Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon. Also please enter our listener appreciation contest and help spread the word about our show. Also remember you can call in your questions and comments to 866-65-THINK (866-658-4465) and you might hear yourself on the air.

Also remember we have an expert council you can address your calls to. If you do this you should email me right after your call at jack at thesurvivalpodcast.com with expert council call in the subject line. In the body of your email tell me that you just called in a question for the council and what number you called in from. I will then give the call priority when I screen calls.
