Today David Nash of TNGun.com returns to TSP. David is a full time emergency manger by trade, and an advocate of self-reliance and personal preparedness by avocation. He is also instructor certified in a variety of topics such as firearms, terrorism response, WMD, and incident command. He’s written two books, and runs a DIY focused prepper website, based around his training business “The Shepherd School”.
Today he joins us first to talk about prepping from a DIY standpoint. David feels prepping is full of $500 problems, but if you only have $50, you have to use other ways of making up the difference. We also discuss David’s new book “52 Prepper Projects.
We also discuss his recent experience in being filmed completing several projects by the producers of “Doomsday Preppers”. It sounds like Nat Geo is at least getting it a little bit. They seem to now be focusing more on “projects” rather then making preppers out to be full on loons. Yet as you will hear, they are still baiting those that appear on the show, forcing them to say they are prepping for a specific event and creating nonsensical false drama in the show.
