I am pleased to announce that Classic Firearms out of Monroe, NC is now an official sponsor of I became familiar with Classic Firearms after ordering a Bear Creek Arsenal upper to complete an AR build. Their customer service was excellent and the upper arrived with no issues.

Just recently I placed another order getting a Canik TP9 SA 9mm pistol. I talked on the phone with Janet who coordinated the firearms transfer to

Time for a change….


Over the past few months I have been going through somewhat of a personal transformation. No – I don’t turn green when I get angry. Rather I am finding that my perspective on things and how I deal with them has changed. Maybe I have run out of patience. Maybe my confidence level has reached a level only challenged by Mount Everest. I have grown tired of compromise. I am tired of “being nice” to

A Few Random Thoughts and Site update


A few random thoughts:

Bunker Billy sent in a link to a great article looking at different fuels for use in a grid down situation. Check it out here –

I recently mentioned that I was looking at picking

Politics and ModernSurvivalOnline


Every so often I express my views regarding politics here on ModernSurvivalOnline. Almost every time I do I get a negative comment or two – as well as a few emails stating that they do not like me offering my opinion on a preparedness site. The reasoning is generally two fold:

1. First and most often is the reader has a different opinion and is on the opposite side of the political

What would you like from ModernSurvivalOnline in 2014?

question-mark (1)

This is the time of year that I do a lot of planning. Call them New Years Resolutions or Goals and Objections – regardless I tend to get pretty detailed in looking at the next year and cover all aspects of my life including finances, family, home, health, and preparedness. ModernSurvivalOnline and my other sites are not immune to my planning and I have been doing some thinking of what I can do in 2014

I posted a blurb about a website/information product today and was overwhelmed with negative responses. For those that read the post and visited the site – you’ll know what I am talking about.

Absolutely the website is one big, giant ad – sure. Just like the infomercials you see on TV – the website tries to draw you in to buy their product. Ever watch a P90X 30 minute infomercial late at night or on

Can’t people just be respectful?

Every so often I get emails from readers that disagree with something I have written. Not a problem….really. I absolutely have no issue with someone disagreeing and providing a different perspective on a topic. What is unacceptable is when someone comments or emails with an opinion that contains malice, anger, and flat out disrespect.

I am a man. I am an adult. I can take criticism. I do not profess to know everything
