Today its Friday so it’s time for the expert council show. To ask a question for a show like this, just send an email to me at jack at thesurvivalpodcast.com with “TSPC Expert” in the subject line.
Today on The Survival Podcast, the expert council answers questions on vehicle maintenance, alternative health, bees, diabetes, invasive plants, AR15s, dogs, hiking, cooking, food storage and more.
In the body of your email first tell me the council member your question is for. Second ask your question concisely in one to two sentences maximum. Third any and all details after that. This is the formula to give you the best chance of getting on the air.
I do what I can to get as many of your questions as possible on the air but can’t always get to all of them. Our council is made of a wide variety of experts in everything from the tactical to the practical and everything in between.
To get more information on our Expert Council visit our “Meet the Expert Council Page” to learn more about them and their specific areas of expertise.

Hey JR, thank you so much for answering my “baby’s first AR-15” question! You hit on the three main things that were confusing me… I don’t have the skill to build one from scratch, but I read so many people saying, “it’s the only way!!” Then I’m very happy you gave specific manufacturers to look at. If you would have just said, “pick a reputable manufacturer” I would have still been confused, so thank you very much for giving a specific list. And then thanks for letting me know a standard factory AR-15 optics-ready and make sure to buy the iron sights (or optics right off the bat) is the right way to go.
And you touched on my third reason for buying one too. Mainly I think they are super fun, I like to shoot at the range with them, but in the back of my mind I am a bit afraid they will be unable to be purchased in the future, and I’d be kicking myself that I didn’t get one when I could!
Also thanks for talking about budget. I honestly had no idea what an acceptable AR-15 should cost. I assumed around $1k, but I’ve seen lots for $3k+, and I had no idea if a $600 AR-15 is absolute Chinese junk that will probably come alive in the middle of the night and shoot you in the head, and I should only consider an AR-15 if I have $3k to spend on a gun. So thanks for giving “permission” to buy an entry-level $600-$1k AR-15!
Great having you on the council!
