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 I also think there are other folks who don’t know what is necessary and what is just a line of bull. Unfortunately, the auto repair

winner

Thank you to all that submitted entries into the recent SHTF Go To Gun Contest held here. There were over 60 entries and some really great weapon systems and firearms were submitted.

THANK YOU!

Unbelievably difficult to select just one – but I had to do it.

 

The winner came from Jason who provided the following description and picture:

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,

My apologize to David for the delay in posting his awesome MP5 clone…..

 

David is ready with……..

Here is my SHTF “Go To” gun entry for the photo contest.  This is my semi-auto MP5SD clone made by ATI/MKE with an MFI low profile scope mount, Vortex SPARC red dot scope, E & L Mfg. SD barrel shroud, HK SEF trigger group housing, A3 collapsible stock and 13 HK 30 round magazines.  I carry this 9mm sub-gun because it easily stores in my 5.11 RUSH 72 “BOB”, allows me 390 rounds of ammo without being all that heavy, and it has an overall high

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, laser, optics, etc., this weapon is like a Mr. Potato Head for grown men.  Make it look like you want.  Make it do what you

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) Brand new, this gun sells for under $200. You can’t beat that price for a gun that can be used for both hunting and defense. 4)

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…..

 Greg sent the following…….

Here is my New England Firearms Y2K Survivor single shot 12 gauge. I don’t plan on taking on an army with this, I plan on feeding my family and friends with this gun. In the stock I store a Victorinox

The exquisite display of armageddon armament continues………..

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 Section Multi Gun Championship. I have run a couple thousand rounds through it with out any malfunctions, its one of the few guns I would trust the

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 bible, and the American flag as they represent the things that are most important to me, and I will do everything within my power to

Jim sent the following…..

Depending on the circumstances- fight in the house or fighting with targets beyond 100 meters (CARBINE distances), I go to this set up. PS90 5.7x28mm Triple rail with dual mags. That’s 100 rounds on the weapon. Surefire M3 Turbo combat light, L3 EOTech HALO sight, and sling. I have also added upgraded charging handles to it as the originals are very small. Good enough for the Secret Service, then OK with me. The
