Guest Post: Vehicle Maintenance Advice

By: Tony D

 

As an auto technician and PREPPER, I would like to share some of my expertise in the automotive field. I have been “turning wrenches” for over 25 years, and have amassed quite a bit of knowledge. I often see vehicles in my shop that are in such poor shape, I can just imagine them clogging the roadways in a SHTF situation. I think that some folks just don’t care. But

Tony sent the following……

This is my go-to SHTF gun – the Smith & Wesson M&P AR15.

I chose it for several reasons. First of all, I belong to a small group of like-minded preppers and we have all chosen this gun so as to be able to standardize our weapons. Secondly, I really like the customizability of the AR15 platform. With the chance to add quad rails, lights,

Beware evil that lurks in the dark……these folks are waiting for you.

Scottie sent the following:

Our SHTF gun is a Ruger 10/22. Our family chose this gun for many reasons. 1) This gun is a duplicate of another gun in our rack. Remember the survival adage “one is none, two is one”. 2) The Ruger 10/22 has been around since 1964, and is known to be reliable and accurate. 3)

John is ready to make judgement with…….

This is my “Go To” gun entry……Taurus Judge Public Defender .410/.45LC.

Here in Colorado these two calibers are easily found. And this will allow me to get to the “bigger stuff” depending on the SHTF scenario…..

The legendary Mr. Choate sent the following…….

Its a Sun Devil AR, the receiver and upper are machined out of solid Billet Al. It has an ACOG TA33-8 scope on it with Diamondhead flip sights, ERGO grip and Choate Telescoping stock. The selector says SAFE and ZOMBIES which I thought was cool. I have shot this rifle in several rifle and 3 gun matches including the Arkansas

Another installment of firearm awesomeness……….

 

Jason sent the following……

The weapon is a specially ordered, during my last deployment, Smith & Wesson M&P 15 with an Aimpoint H-1 and a Surefire X400. I chose this weapon because it is the weapon that I am most familiar with, having served in the Army for over 20 years. I chose to have my youngest son hold the weapon (he understands the rules of gun safety), the
