The great financial collapse may be covered over by the coming Syrian conflict which is an obvious ruse. While Conspiracy Cafe deals with the geo-political issues, we can't leave you on your own. There may be questions you have about the issues of the day. If you've been with us a long time, remember our Christmas special on surviving a nuclear calamity. If the unthinkable ever happened, you'd have to be everything. Co-operation is the key. We pray we never get to that point.

  • U.S. Survival Rifle 22LR Semi-Auto AR-7 ...

    Fun Gun Reviews Presents : The U.S. Survival Rifle. This super lightweight 22LR semi-automatic rifle breaks down into four pieces that can be store away into the waterproof stock. Made by Henry Repeating Arms, this handy little rifle is perfect for hikers, campers, fisherman, bush pilots, or anyone who spents time in the great outdoors!

    The ArmaLite AR-7 Explorer, designed by M-16 inventor Eugene Stoner, is a semi-automatic .22 Long Rifle rifle developed from the AR-5 adopted by the U.S. Air Force as a pilot and aircrew survival weapon. Its intended markets today are backpackers and other recreational users as a take-down utility rifle. The AR-7 is often recommended by outdoor users of recreational vehicles (automobile, airplane or boat) who might have need for a weapon for foraging or defense in a wilderness emergency.

    History & design

    The prototype of what would become the AR-7 was designed by Eugene Stoner at ArmaLite Inc., a division of Fairchild Aircraft. The rifle shares some of the features of the bolt-action AR-5, another rifle designed by Stoner for ArmaLite and adopted by the United States Air Force in 1956 as the MA-1.[1] The MA-1 was intended to replace the M4 Survival Rifle and the M6 Aircrew Survival Weapon which was a superimposed ("over-under") twin-barrel rifle/shotgun chambered in .22 Hornet and .410 bore, using a break-open action. The AR-5 had the advantage of repeat fire over the then-standard M6, using the same .22 Hornet cartridge. When the AR-5 was adopted as the MA-1 but was not placed in issue due to the numbers of M4 and M6 survival weapons in USAF inventory, ArmaLite used the research and tooling for the AR-5 in developing the AR-7 for the civilian market.

    Armalite AR-7 Explorer internal parts assembled (left sideplate removed)

    The AR-7 uses a blowback semi-automatic action in .22 Long Rifle but retains the AR-5/MA-1 feature of storing the disassembled parts within the hollow stock, which is filled with plastic foam and capable of floating.[3][4] Like the bolt-action AR-5, the AR-7 was designed as a survival rifle for foraging small game for food. The AR-7 is constructed primarily of aluminum, with plastic for the stock and buttcap. Even the barrel is aluminum (in later production composite material), using a rifled steel barrel liner.[5] The AR-7 measures 35 inches overall when assembled. It disassembles to four sections (barrel, action, stock, and magazine), with three parts storing inside the plastic stock measuring 16 inches long. The rifle weighs 2.5 pounds light enough for convenient backpacking. The rear sight is a peep sight, which comes on a flat metal blade with an aperture (in later production two different size apertures), and is adjustable for elevation (up-down). The front sight is adjustable for windage (side-side). Accuracy is sufficient for hunting small game at ranges to 50 yards.


    Reliability of the AR-7 is highly dependent on the condition of the magazine and on the ammunition used, perhaps more so than with other models of semi-automatic .22 caliber rifles. The feed ramp is part of the magazine and subject to damage from mishandling. Flat-nosed bullets tend to jam on the edge of the chamber of the barrel. The transition of cartridge from magazine to barrel can be smoothed by minor beveling of the chamber of the barrel, by using round-nosed as opposed to flat-nosed bullets and by paying attention to condition of the feed lips and feed ramp of the magazine. Later production magazines include an external wire spring to align the cartridge; earlier magazines used two pinch marks at the top of the magazine body, which could become worn over time.

    All iterations of the AR-7 from the Armalite to the Henry use bolt and dual recoil springs that are heavy compared to most other .22 semiautomatics. The AR-7 requires high velocity ammunition for reliable functioning. The manufacturer recommends use of 40 grain round nose bullets in high velocity loadings. It is still possible to manually load a single round into the firing chamber, allowing use of flat nosed bullets or low velocity or subsonic ammunition.

    The barrel takedown nut tends to loosen after firing and may need hand tightening to maintain both accuracy and reliability.

    Armalite sold the design to Charter Arms in 1973. According to some accounts posted by enthusiasts, this is where quality began to deteriorate.[6] Barrels were said to have a tendency to warp. Other sources state that the first production at Charter had problems which were corrected in later production runs.[2] Since Charter Arms sold the design and rights to Henry Repeating Arms in 1980, the Henry AR-7 has regained a reputation for reliability.

  • FIREARMS: SKS Rifle Review

    Fun Gun Reviews Presents: The SKS Rifle Review. A classic 7.62x39 Semi-Automatic 10 rd Box fed Carbine of Soviet design that is a favorite among U.S. Shooters and Collectors.

    The SKS is a Soviet semi-automatic carbine chambered for the 7.62×39mm round, designed in 1943 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. Its complete designation, SKS-45, is an initialism for Samozaryadnyj Karabin sistemy Simonova, 1945 (Russian: Самозарядный карабин системы Симонова, 1945; Self-loading Carbine of (the) Simonov system, 1945), or SKS 45. In the early 1950s, the Soviets took the SKS carbine out of front-line service and replaced it with the AK-47; however, the SKS remained in second-line service for decades. It is still used as a ceremonial arm today. The SKS was widely exported, and was also produced by some former Eastern Bloc nations as well as China, where it was designated the "Type 56", East Germany as the Karabiner S and in North Korea as the "Type 63". The SKS is currently popular on the civilian surplus market in many countries, including the United States, Canada and New Zealand. It was one of the first weapons chambered for the 7.62×39mm M43 round, which was also used later in the AK-47.

    This is a tough do anything rifle. I prefer its 20 inch barrel for accuracy. In Canada it is readily found for about $200. That's a good investment. The 7.63x39 cartridge is quite powerful for hunting and is cheap and plentiful. Remember most Chinese ammunition is corrosive. Clean your gun as soon as possible. Have fun. Always handle frearms safely and shoot in areas designated for it.

  • FIREARMS: Kel-Tec SU-16A Review

    Review of the Kel-Tec SU-16A Semi Auto Rifle By Rod. Great rifle, if you have experience to share please comment!!! Civil Advantage Firearms Training is a Canadian company operating out of Vancouver's lower mainland. We specialize in the Canadian Firearms Safety Course, beginner, tactical and live fire training. We train beginners, civilians, federal and municipal police officers, corrections personal and CBSA (border protection).

    SU-16 refers to a series of semi-automatic rifles and carbines manufactured by Kel-Tec CNC Industries, Inc. of Cocoa, Florida, referred to in Kel-Tec's marketing as "Sport Utility rifles". The SU-16 series is notable for its compact, lightweight and simple design; and for being able to be broken down and folded into a compact configuration for transportation and storage. While the barrel, bolt-carrier and mechanism are steel, the SU-16's stock, receiver, and forend are manufactured of high-strength polymer plastic.

    I do try to support American industry where I can. The firearms industry is a large part of it today as in the past. This is a great little rifle for the neophyte shooter. Some experts will poo poo the gun comparing it to guns that cost many thousands of dollars. The SU-16 is a Chevy. They bought a Porsche. They may both be cars, but they aren't comparable. The Chevy will haul your butt around nicely. It economical like the SU-16 and you don't have to worry about getting it scratched in the woods. It's synthetic. The AR mags are NATO standard and available everywhere. So enjoy the freedoms you have by EXCERCISING not just your mind and body but the right to BEAR ARMS! 

    P.S. I always use a trigger lock or secure storage case while carrying any firearm in a car. It is the law if the vehicle is left unattended here in the great white north. In some states firearms must be actually displayed for law enforcement to see. Many cooks to boil you in some soup. 

  • How To Survive Getting Lost In The Woods...

    Enjoy the outdoors, without fear of getting lost. This video shares basic information that I learned "the hard way," along with recommendations from wilderness survival experts.

    The STOP Acronym works well to control panic:

    S: Stop what you're doing. Sit down (to keep your self from walking or running). Have a drink of water. Water washes the taste of fear out of your mouth. Sit for 30 minutes to reduce the adrenaline that is flooding your system. Use this time to

    T: Think. Use your brain to evaluate the threat that is facing you. Is it getting dark? Or is is cold? What will you need to do?

    O: Observe your surroundings. How are they similar and different from where you were before you became lost? Is the river on which side of you? What about the mountains or other landmarks, etc? Then finally, develop a plan.

    P: Plan. Ask yourself, "What am I going to do?" Decide if you are really lost OR if you are only slightly disoriented. If you are really lost, YOU SHOULD STAY WHERE YOU ARE....and wait to be found. If you are slightly disoriented, you should search for the trail.


    Find a good source of water. In a survival situation, you can last up to three days without water, but by the end of the second day you're not going to be in very good shape. Springs or streams provide good sources of water. If you find a water source and are not sure if it is contaminated, boil it, or use chemical tablets. Contray to popular belief, you don't need to boil water very long to make it safe from biological contamination. Just bring it to a boil. If there aren't springs or stream in your area, you can use jacket sleeves tied to your ankles in the morning, when wading through the grass to get dew on the jacket, then suck the moisture out of the fabric. Warning: don't drink the dew from toxic or allergic plants.


    You can survive a few weeks without food, so hunting, fishing and gathering wild edibles isn't usually an urgent priority. However, the wilderness provides many food sources. See: Merriwether's Guide to Edible Wild Plants of Texas and the Southwest:

    General references:

    These are all great sites for further information. They do forget the greatest source of strength GOD. That is quite common today. I have found prayer a fanastic encouragement. You are never truly alone. The Lord is always with you. Call on Him. Perhaps he wanted a little time with you alone in the Garden of Eden. Enjoy your time and he will lead your way.

  • FIREARMS: Mosin Nagant M44 Carbine

    The Mosin–Nagant series of rifles. From top to bottom:

    Mosin–Nagant M91

    Mosin–Nagant M91 "Dragoon"

    Mosin–Nagant M07 Carbine

    Mosin–Nagant M91/30

    Mosin–Nagant M91/30 PU Sniper

    Mosin–Nagant M38 Carbine

    Mosin–Nagant M44 Carbine

    Mosin–Nagant M59 Carbine

    There is a lot of history behind this rifle. It is the epitome of machines steel and hardwood. It is a functional 19th century solution that fought in WWI and WWII. There are many on the surplus market in 7.62 X 54R which is the Russian .308. It is a powerful cartridge that would be suitable for big game hunting with soft point ammunition. The military fodder are great for target practice at the range. These rifles are simple and easy to shoot. They are on the heavy side by today's standards but that absorbs the recoil. Some come with attached bayonets. Polish versions of the carbine like the one featured were in brand new condition stored since the 50's. Russia is disposing of old rifles like the Mosin Nagant, Tokarev's and captured German Mausers. For a reasonable price you get a very good rifle.

    The War Game is a 1965 television documentary-style drama depicting the effects of nuclear war on Britain. Written, directed, and produced by Peter Watkins for the BBC's The Wednesday Play anthology series, it caused dismay within the BBC and in government and was withdrawn from television transmission on 6 August 1965 (the twentieth anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing). The Corporation said that "the effect of the film has been judged by the BBC to be too horrifying for the medium of broadcasting". However, it had some distribution in cinemas and won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 1966.[1] But it remained unshown in full on British television until 1985.

    The magic moment your children's eyeballs are boiled from the flash a third degree burn coursing the optic nerve to the brain. That's pain.

    Made in black-and-white with a running time of just under 50 minutes, The War Game depicts the prelude to and the immediate weeks of the aftermath to a Soviet nuclear attack against Britain. A Chinese invasion of South Vietnam starts the war; tensions escalate when the United States authorises tactical nuclear warfare against the Chinese. Although the Soviet and East German forces threaten to invade West Berlin if the U.S. does not withdraw that decision, the U.S. does not acquiesce to Communist demands and occupies West Berlin; two U.S. Army divisions attempt to fight their way into Berlin, but the Russian and East German forces defeat them in battle. The U.S. President launches a pre-emptive, NATO tactical nuclear attack. A limited nuclear war erupts between the West and the East; missiles strike Britain.

    The chaos of the prelude to the attack, as city residents are forcibly evacuated to the country, leads to the story's centre in Rochester, which is struck by an off-target missile aimed at Gatwick Airport. Key targets in Kent are RAF Manston and the Maidstone barracks, which are mentioned in scenes showing immediate effects of the attack. The results of that missile's explosion are the instant blinding of those who see the explosion, the resultant firestorm caused by the heat wave, and the blast front; later, the collapse of society, because of radiation sickness, psychological damage, and destroyed infrastructure; the British Army burns corpses, while police shoot looters during food riots.

    War is not a game. Don't let our leaders do it anymore lest you get the rebound effect of it.

    The Bill of Rights laid out certain basic rights for (at the time) all Englishmen. The Act set out that there should be:

    no royal interference with the law. Though the sovereign remains the fount of justice, he or she cannot unilaterally establish new courts or act as a judge.

    no taxation by Royal Prerogative. The agreement of the parliament became necessary for the implementation of any new taxes

    freedom to petition the monarch without fear of retribution

    no standing army may be maintained during a time of peace without the consent of parliament.[7]

    no royal interference in the freedom of the people to have arms for their own defence as suitable to their class and as allowed by law (simultaneously restoring rights previously taken from Protestants by James II)

    no royal interference in the election of members of parliament

    the freedom of speech and debates or proceedings in Parliament ought not to be impeached or questioned in any court or place out of Parliament

    "grants and promises of fines or forfeitures" before conviction are void

    no excessive bail or "cruel and unusual" punishments may be imposed

    Certain acts of James II were also specifically named and declared illegal by the Bill of Rights, while James' flight from England in the wake of the Glorious Revolution was also declared to be an abdication of the throne.

    Also, in a prelude to the Act of Settlement to come twelve years later, the Bill of Rights barred Roman Catholics from the throne of England as "it hath been found by experience that it is inconsistent with the safety and welfare of this Protestant kingdom to be governed by a papist prince"; thus William III and Mary II were named as the successors of James VII and II and that the throne would pass from them first to Mary's heirs, then to her sister, Princess Anne of Denmark and her heirs and, further, to any heirs of William by a later marriage. The monarch was further required to swear a coronation oath to maintain the Protestant religion.


    The most audacious right in the 1689 Bill of Rights was the right to bear arms. It was established with the others after the INQUISITION. Review these rights and notice how they are all under attack. That tells you something. You are being reduced to slave status again. The right to bear arms was the keystone right. Laws very from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. However, I advocate every citizen owning a firearm. We are the government. We are mistaught that there are three levels of government. There are FOUR. The citizens are the fourth. The Constitutions are contracts that allow the others to exist. When those officers breech contract, the contract is null and void and we resort to the fourth level of government only WE THE PEOPLE until we establish a new system. So exercise your rights or lose them. In the spirit of 1776 and 1689 I recommend the Kel Tec Sub 2000 which comes in two pistol calibers. It is lightweight and easy to use. The video displays the firearm in plinking mode. It is fun after all the shooting sports.

  • Panic in Year Zero!

    We had a lot of trouble with this video when we first used it two years ago. There is a fresh copy on line. It is important as a training resource to let you see first hand what life will be like. Harry makes several key mistakes. The greatest one is not unifying with the hardware store owner he stole from. Together they would have fared better. He was very wise to use the cave. The shelter you prefer will be a major target. Use it as a trap lure bandits not a residence. You see what happened to those who didn't know. You will need a guard 24/7. That is why co-operation with people is necessary. You may have to deal with violent criminals. That will not be easy. Many issues are raised. It is better to see them in film than live them. Good Luck. God Bless.


    Panic in Year Zero!, sometimes known as End of the World, is a 1962 science fiction film directed by and starring Ray Milland. The original music score was composed by Les Baxter. It was written by John Morton and Jay Simms. Although the similarities to Ward Moore's stories Lot (1953) and Lot's Daughter (1954) are obvious, Moore received no credit for the film. In the 1962 novelization of the film by Dean Owen, which was published under the title End of the World by Alta Vista Productions with Ray Milland's photo on the cover, the introduction page asserted: "The screenplay was by John Morton and Jay Simms, from an original story by Jay Simms."

    Soon after Harry Baldwin (Ray Milland), his wife Ann (Jean Hagen), their son Rick (Frankie Avalon), and daughter Karen (Mary Mitchell) leave suburban Los Angeles on a camping trip, the Baldwins note unusually bright light flashes coming from a great distance. Sporadic news reports on CONELRAD broadcasts hint at the start of a thermonuclear war, which is confirmed as the Baldwins see a large mushroom cloud over what was Los Angeles.

    The family initially attempts to return to rescue Ann's mother near Los Angeles, but soon abandons these plans as panicked refugees climb over one another to escape the fallout from the multiple nuclear explosions. Witnessing the threads of society being torn apart, Harry decides that the family must find refuge at their secluded vacation spot.

    Along the way, they stop to buy supplies, or, in the case of hardware store owner Ed Johnson (Richard Garland), take them by force when he won't accept a check. They also encounter three threatening young hoodlums, Carl (Richard Bakalyan), Mickey (Rex Holman), and Andy (Neil Nephew), on the road, but manage to drive them off.

    After a harrowing journey, the Baldwins reach their destination, finding shelter in a cave while they wait for order to be restored. They find that Johnson and his wife are their neighbors - but not for long. The three thugs appear and shoot them. A farming couple suffers the same fate and their teenage daughter, Marilyn (Joan Freeman) is kept as a sex slave. Karen is also raped when Mickey and Andy happen upon her. With guns in hand, the Baldwin men fight back, killing the two murderers and freeing Marilyn. When Carl returns, he is killed as well, but Rick is seriously wounded.

    With Marilyn's help, they get the young man to Doctor Strong (Willis Bouchey). The doctor does what he can, but the boy needs to get to an army hospital over a hundred miles (160 km) away for a blood transfusion or he will die. On their drive there, they encounter a military patrol, scouting for the army that is reestablishing order. After a tense meeting, they are allowed to continue.
