John and I plan to start reblogging articles from other sites that relate to our mission here on the Civilian Gunfighter blog.
In our first edition, I chose to reblog this article by John Mosby from his Mountain Guerilla blog. Though I don’t consider myself a “survivalist” in the colloquial sense, I (and John) tend to share many of the views that Mosby presents in his articles. Mosby’s articles tend to be funny–if a bit caustic– but tend to get right to the point.
I guess this particular article resonated with me because it is virtually the same stuff John and I post on our blog whenever one of these “incidents” happens in the news. Get training, not just with firearms, but medical knowledge and kit. Such medical know-how is much more likely to save your life or the lives of others than the pistol you carry on a daily basis.
Hope you enjoy the article.–Robert

It’s SHTF time!”).
If we are actually PRACTICAL “preppers,” “survivalists,” or–to use the term I prefer–simply, “adult human beings,” we SHOULD be prepared for bad events and WTSHTF. Far too many people who call themselves “preppers” though, focus too…
