EPISODE-239 BASIC FIREARM SKILLS

Sorry i haven’t had an episode out in a while guys, I had a lot going on around here and i didn’t have time to edit and upload podcasts like i wanted to. The bummer is now i am all caught up and now i am having technical issues with the site and i cant get it to let me upload more than 25% of a podcast.So i didnt want to let you go with out a podcast any longer so i am posting an old episode. This episode is originally episode 31. I know the audio is going to be crappy but like i said i cant upload anything so i cant even re edit the episode and re upload it. Anyway i hope you stick with me till i get this figured out and i hope you enjoy this podcast from my first year of podcasting.

Today i discuss how to inspect a gun when you are buying it and how to sight in a rifle . I discuss what to look for as far as finish of a rifle and things to check when looking over the mechanical parts .If you are ever in doubt a bout a rifle you should always refer to a gunsmith is you are not 100% sure on something .This is meant to be a guide to help you weed out the crappy firearms from the better ones . I also discuss how to sight in a rifle scope without a boresighter, which is becoming a lost art nowadays. I also discuss how to adjust open sights on a rifle .

EPISODE 238 SURVIVAL BOOKS

Today’s episode is on survival books. My definition of survival books may be different than yours though. My definition of a survival book is a book that has anything in it that can teach you skills that you need to survive. It could be a book on solar power,fishing,hunting,trapping, general building or electrical wiring.  Having these skills are an important part of any diyers skill set. Listen in today to hear more of my thoughts on survival books .

EPISODE-195 5 GALLON BUCKET CHALLENGE

Hi everyone,

Today’s episode is what i am going to call the 5 gallon bucket challenge. I challenge everyone that listens to make something out of a 5 gallon bucket and send in some pics and i will post them up on the site. Why a 5 gallon bucket challenge? First off they are cheap you can get a bucket and a lid for 5 bucks or under, a lot of times you can get them for free at restaurants. Second , They have many uses besides carrying water. Third, you can modify them with very cheap tools , so anyone can participate.

5 gallon bucket

To me a 5 gallon bucket is one of the most versatile things you can have. Preppers use them for long term storage. Homesteaders use them to haul feed and water to animals. Home mechanics use them for catching fluids and carrying scrap metal. You can also just use them as a chair. Gardeners can use them as pots and to carry water and fertilizer. The possibilities are endless.

So please join me in the 5 gallon bucket challenge and make a project. Also please share this around and hopefully we will have a huge number of submissions.

EPISODE-185 HOMESTEAD UPDATES

Today’s show is just on some homestead updates on what i have going around on my place. Listen in for more details !
