In this video I go over how to make a raised bed super shelter, or at least MY version of how to do it! This type of shelter is very comfortable and easy to build, and is a great way to spend a night in your bushcraft camp!

Ruger EC9s Review And Field Strip

In this video, Ruger Ec9s Review And Field Strip, I give you my first impressions of what I think is a contender for the title of King of the Budget Pistols, and I show you how to disassemble the thing. At first glance, I think this would make a great carry pistol for concealed carry on a budget, or a good choice for the first time gun buyer! It fits nicely in the role of a pocket pistol, and is almost unnoticeable on your belt.

And here’s a shoutout to my local gun shop- Sphon’s CCW and Armory!

Starting A Fire With Flint And Steel

In this video we will look at the technique for starting a fire with flint and steel. We talk about the tinder bundle, and about using the flint and steel to ignite an ember in char cloth, We then use that ember to produce flame. This is one survival skill that should be in every woodsman’s toolbox!

You can find the Flint and Steel set I used in the video HERE.

You can also find some on Amazon HERE and HERE and HERE.

Extar Ep9 Review- Budget PDW!

The Extar EP9
The Extar EP9- Budget PDW!

Extar EP9 Introduction

If you’ve been paying attention to the firearms market AT ALL in recent years, you will have noticed that the popularity of the Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) has been on the rise. Within that niche, the Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) has become prominent. The PDW’s small size and light weight have made this class of firearms sought after as home defense guns, vehicle guns, and bugout guns among many people who feel that a full-sized rifle is a bit too cumbersome in those roles. Since the regulations on Short Barreled Rifles are a hassle to many people, the braced pistol has truly come into its own within the PDW concept. Enter the Extar EP9.

(Be sure to read to the bottom for the Rating!)

Ruger Security 9 Field Strip

In this video I’ll show you how to conduct a Ruger Security 9 field strip- like I neglected to do in my shooting video! This little 9mm pistol is easy to disassemble and reassemble using only a 9mm casing as a tool.

Varusteleka Jaakaripuukko 140

n this video we take a look at a great budget bushcraft blade, the Varusteleka Jaakaripuukko 140. If you’re searching for a bombproof knife that won’t break the bank, this one is worth looking at. It makes a gread bushcraft knife or survival knife, as its spine is nice and thick and tapers to a razor sharp edge. This knife deserves a place in any bug out bag!

(You can find the knife here if you just want to look at it alone…)
