I think you’re a little short on security. I wouldn’t dream of bugging out or trying to survive post-TEOTWAWKI without a good handgun (or two) in 9mm Parabellum, a rifle in 5.56/223 Remington (whether AR or otherwise), and at least a 308 bolt action for longer range/harder hits.
I received my H.R. Richter multi tool today and was pretty disappointed with the size of the tool, it was no bigger than my index finger.

Donation time!! I’m pretttttty late on this one, but I finally donated my most recent $$ from the “Trust No One” TB release. This time to the San Antonio Food Bank. Yay! Apparently, a $1 donation = 7 meals, so this will equal… 637 meals to people in need. 😎

Maybe 25k a month is too low of a figure, but a million per month just reeks of a scam. If this was a website that stood by itself I’d be less skeptical, but given that it’s being used as a proof of concept for online marketers who want to sell you the guide for creating your own version of it, I just can’t see how their claims are true.
