PREPARATION



-
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.

  • S&W M&P Pistol

    2227 Views - 0 Comments


    The Smith & Wesson M&P (Military and Police) is a polymer-framed, short recoil operated, locked breech semi-automatic pistol introduced in the summer of 2005 by the American company Smith & Wesson. It uses a Browning-type locking system. While targeted at law enforcement agencies, the M&P is also available on the commercial market

    History

    The M&P is a direct evolution of the Smith & Wesson Sigma design but does not share parts compatibility with the Sigma. The M&P design has an improved trigger and enhanced ergonomics that allow for end-user customization. An industry standard picatinny rail and a higher grip has been afforded with an improved grip and beavertail. Many of the ergonomic study elements that had been incorporated into the Sigma and the Smith & Wesson SW99 were brought over to the M&P. The improved trigger weight and feel and the unique takedown method (not requiring a dry-fire pull of the trigger) were meant to set the M&P apart from both the Sigma and the popular Glock pistols.

    Design details

    The M&P is a striker-fired semi-automatic pistol. This trigger system prevents the firearm from discharging unless the trigger is fully depressed, even if the pistol is dropped. An internal lock and/or magazine disconnect are available as options and an optional external thumb safety became available in 2009.[2]

    The pistol frame is made out of Zytel polymer reinforced with a stainless steel chassis. The slide and barrel are made out of stainless steel that after hardening is treated with a proprietary nitriding process called Melonite. The Melonite process produces a matte gray non-glare surface with a 68 Rockwell C surface hardness rating. The pistol has a very low slide profile which holds the barrel axis close to the shooter's hand and makes the M&P more comfortable to shoot by reducing muzzle rise and allowing for faster aim recovery in rapid shooting sequence. The slide has four contact points with the frame. This was done to make the rail system self cleaning, by leaving room for any dirt or small foreign objects to fall out of the weapon.[3]

  • Ruger Mini-14
    by George Freund on April 29, 2015 at 9:49 PM
    2937 Views - 0 Comments


    The Mini-14, Mini Thirty, and Mini-6.8 are small, lightweight semi-automatic carbines manufactured by the U.S. firearms company Sturm, Ruger. The Mini-14 non-target versions can fire both the .223 Remington cartridge and the similar military 5.56x45mm cartridge. The target model Mini-14 rifles are chambered only for the .223 Remington cartridge. The Mini Thirty uses the 7.62×39mm and the Mini-6.8 fires 6.8 mm Remington SPC.


    Ruger offered a selective fire variant of the Mini-14, the AC-556, to police and military customers. AC-556 models have a slightly longer receiver (shared with early production "series 180" models) to allow for full automatic operation. These models are available with features such as short barrels and bayonet lugs. The Mini-14GB model is a semi-automatic variant for police and military use with the additional factory options of a short barrel, folding paratrooper stock, flash suppressor and a bayonet lug.


    Designed by L. James Sullivan and William B. Ruger, the rifle employs an investment cast, heat-treated receiver and a version of the M1/M14 rifle locking mechanism with a self-cleaning, fixed-piston gas system. The rifle is available in stainless or blued finish with hardwood, synthetic, or laminated stocks and an 18.5-inch (470 mm) barrel. Target models are currently available only in .223 Remington and are not chambered to fire the 5.56x45mm NATO round. They feature a 22-inch (560 mm) heavy barrel and either a laminated wood or Hogue overmolded synthetic stock. Most Mini-14s have a classic sporter appearance, in contrast to comparable autoloading rifles such as the AK-47 and AR-15. However Ruger now offers some Mini-14 rifles in a black ATI adjustable folding stock with a pistol grip. While the magazines of the Mini-14 resemble M16-style STANAG magazines, the two designs are not interchangeable.

  • FIREARMS: M1 Carbine
    by George Freund on March 18, 2015 at 8:57 PM
    3928 Views - 0 Comments


    The M1 carbine (formally the United States Carbine, Caliber .30, M1) is a lightweight .30 caliber semi-automatic carbine that became a standard firearm for the U.S. military during World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, and was produced in several variants. Easy-to-use, it was widely used by U.S. and foreign military, paramilitary and police forces, and has also been a popular civilian firearm.

    In selective-fire versions capable of fully automatic firing, the carbine is designated the M2 carbine. The M3 carbine was an M2 with an active infrared scope system. Unlike conventional carbines, which are generally shorter-barreled versions of a longer parent rifle (like the earlier .30-40 U.S. Krag rifle and carbine and the later M16 rifle and M4 carbine), the M1 carbine has only one minor part in common with the unrelated larger M1 Garand, a short buttplate screw, and fires a different cartridge.

    Prior to World War II, Army Ordnance received reports from various branches (infantry, armor, artillery, supply) that the full-size M1 rifle was unsuitable as issued for an increasing number of soldiers with specialized training (mortar crews, rangers, paratroopers, machine gun crews, radiomen, tankers, artillerymen, forward observers, signals troops, engineers, headquarters staff etc.) who did not use the service rifle as a primary arm. During prewar and early war field exercises, it was noticed that these troops, when issued the rifle, often found their individual weapon too heavy and cumbersome. In addition to impeding the soldier's mobility, a slung rifle would frequently catch on brush, bang the helmet, or tilt it over the eyes. Many soldiers found the rifle slid off the shoulder unless slung diagonally across the back, where it prevented the wearing of standard field packs and haversacks. Alternate weapons such as the M1911 pistol and M1917 revolver, while undeniably convenient, were often insufficiently accurate or powerful, while the Thompson submachine gun, though reliable, was heavy and limited in both practical accuracy and penetration at typical combat range.


    Additionally, Germany's use of glider-borne and paratroop forces to infiltrate and attack strategic points behind the front lines generated a request for a compact infantry small arm to equip support units and line-of-communications troops who might find themselves engaged in combat without prior warning. U.S. Army Ordnance decided that a carbine would adequately fulfill all of these requirements, but specified that the new arm should add no more than five pounds to the existing equipment load. The requirement for the new firearm called for a compact, lightweight defensive weapon with an effective range of 300 yards, with greater range, firepower, and accuracy than the pistol, while weighing half as much as the Thompson submachine gun or M1 rifle. Parachutists were added to the list of intended users after Ordnance received a request for a lighter and more compact infantry arm for airborne forces, and a folding-stock (M1A1) version of the carbine was introduced in May 1942 to meet this requirements.

    The .30 Carbine (7.62×33mm) is the cartridge used in the M1 Carbine introduced in the 1940s. It is a light rifle round designed to be fired from the M1 carbine's 18-inch (458 mm) barrel.

    This is a controverial episode since National Geographic used a convicted felon, and he possessed a firearm. His plan was to rob to survive. Many will mimic that plan I'm sure. I advocate Christian prepping where we plan to share and work together. We will see into the robber's mind here. They also illustrate dealing with medical emergencies. You may have to. We used to joke and call it the home surgery club at work. However, that's all you might have. Do stock up on first aid supplies and take a course on it

    Doomsday Preppers is an American reality television series that airs on the National Geographic Channel. The program profiles various survivalists, or "preppers", who are preparing to survive the various circumstances that may cause the end of civilization, including economic collapse, societal collapse, and electromagnetic pulse. The quality of their preparations is graded by the consulting company Practical Preppers, who provide analysis and recommendations for improvements.

    In Tacoma, Wash., Tyler and his followers have put back some prepper supplies, and they have a remote, 15-acre farm, but they plan to become marauders after a catastrophic terrorist attack and the subsequent imposition of martial law. They plan to attack other preppers in the area ? Tyler is making a map ? to take their stores of food, supplies, weapons and ammunition. To that end, they are building homemade body armor from bathroom tiles wrapped in fiberglass and duct tape, and coated with roofing tar, combined with plates of scrap metal and old metal fence. Tyler has tested the prototype by strapping it on and having his cousin Chris shoot him in the stomach with a 12-gauge shotgun.

    Tyler also expect the military to take control of hospitals, where he expects they would arrest and detain an "apex predator" – his words – like him. So, he's been reading books on medicine and surgery, and laying in stocks of rudimentary medical supplies. If his catastrophe happens before his pregnant wife gives birth, he plans to then do a C-section on her in his barn, which he will sanitize by laying down some plastic sheeting.

    Kevin has moved his family from a suburban neighborhood in Kansas to Costa Rica "to escape America's economic collapse" and the worldwide impact that will have. He believes Costa Rica offers a more self-reliant, basic way of life. That appears to be an accurate assessment of the Central American country, where the electrical grid already fails Kevin regularly, even before the collapse of the U.S. dollar.

    He has about 18 months of supplies stored away, but also has added chickens, a garden and an aquaponics system for tilapia and vegetables. He powers that system with solar energy. In addition to supplying high-quality protein for the family, Kevin plans to use the fish in a local bartering system after money has no value. He and his family are learning Spanish to become part of the "us" of the local Spanish-speaking community rather than remaining "a them" in the event of a catastrophe.

    The show's expert assessors noted that both scenarios for which tonight's preppers were preparing are highly unlikely. They appreciated the creativity Tyler put into creating his body armor, but really said nothing about its effectiveness. They also suggested he might want to become part of the solution in a post-apocalyptic world rather than create new problems.

    Kevin, they said, needs to add backup pumps and plumbing supplies to support and maintain his aquaponics system.

    Tyler seems to have a Road Warrior fantasy about the future, with him as the dominant warrior and leader of the pack. He probably won't survive more than one or two marauding missions against neighboring preppers. His armor protects some of his vital organs and much of his head, but leaves about 60-70 percent of his body open to attack.

    The show didn't really give much information about his would-be gang members, so it's difficult to assess the overall survival rate of the group after the collapse of society. Their leader has sort of given away the element of surprise they may have had over the other preppers in their area that they plan to raid and pillage.

    Kevin's choice of a Central American country as his refuge from a worldwide collapse of society and systems might be questioned given that some travel websites and some nations have issued warnings to tourists of serious and violent crime in Costa Rica.

    NOTE:

    Tyler Smith, the leader of the "Marauders" featured in this episode was arrested and booked on two counts of second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm because he was a previously convicted child sex offender and was legally barred from possessing firearms. During the episode, Smith also described his plans to commit armed robbery in the episode. Asked for comment on Smith’s arrest, National Geographic issued a statement stating: "We are aware of the arrest, and have decided not to air this episode until all legal matters are sorted out." The episode was eventually aired.

    As the international situation deteriorates, I cannot stress enough to make yourselves ready with God and whatever circumstances we are stranded in. I would expect conflict would mean the end of electricical power as we have known it for years. It will be the stone age. Whatever you thought your worst nightmare ever was magnify it exponentially. Many listen and few heed the warnings that this is very, very close upon us unless our despot leaders understand their recklessness. It a heartbeat what we know can cease to exist. The Russiand did another dry run on Britain yesterday. All they had to do was fire, and we would never know what hit us. And you voted for these idiots perhaps. May God have mercy upon you. Hopefully you learned something that may well save your life.

    Educational Zone #102 – Casting Lead Bullets – pt. 1

    I then open the mold, but the bullets often will adhere to one side of the mold.

    You just tap the hinge with the hammer and the bullet will fall free.

    Close the mold and fill it again, and you are on your way.

    When you first start casting the first couple of bullets will need to heat up the mold.

    Here is the first bullet between two others.

    You can see that the base of the bullet did not fill completely.

    I just added it back to the pot.

    I always place a towel over the holding pot to catch the bullets.

    They are “soft” as they come out of the mold, and dropping them on a hard surface can dent them.

    After a few seconds, you can dump them into the holding pot.

    When casting big bullets like these 510 grain bullets, you will use lead pretty quickly.

    As the level in the melting pot drops, I just add a piece of lead,

    …stir it really well, 

    and then flux the mixture again.

    Stir it to mix it well.

    Then I scrape off the dross and I am ready to go again.

    Keep at this for a while and before you know it, you have a pot full of bullets.

    Conclusion: In part two, we talk about sizing, lubricating, and reloading these bullets.
