Shooting challenge — post you results in the comments if you like.
Went to the range yesterday and started my new training program
Drill – to learn to draw and change mags correctly.
Rounds – about 100
Action – load 2 round into your pistol and 2 rounds into each additional magazine ( minimum 1 normally 2)
Target – man-sized, stationary
Distance – 20 m / +-60 feet
Method – address target , draw, Fire 2 rounds, change mags, let slide loose, fire 2 rounds, change mags to empty mag, dry fire, change mag to other mag with ammo, fire 2 rounds, change mags to empty mag, dry fire, make weapons safe,
reload and start from scratch.
Objective – to draw and fire and reload accurately, then speed up as you become better at this, then work on accurate fire, when quick.
– my results were quite good …
all shots on central mass, no fumbles, not exceptionally quick, need to review my holster setup, its slowing me down.
When money is tight prepping can be tough
Weapons are expensive … so is ammo and Food and fuel prices are on the rise, new toll roads and other taxes are crippling the economy.
These are all challenges to prepping.
here are some of my ideas to prepping on a budget in South africa.

Usefulness of flame weapons post civilization
Fire is a powerful ally and a terrible enemy
If it can be bent to your will and harnessed as a weapon it can be unleashed against your enemy to his peril
Home made flame throwers are very effective weapons – especially against crowds of looters
and when combined with simple pumps can be a great deterrent to looters and raiders.
There range is limited and so is their fuel supply, but these can be over come when they are built in enough of a size.
in a nutshell these are base defensive weapons, and can be used in assault but are heavy and short ranged so best kept for teams with access to vehicles
and larger amounts of fuel.
The Fuel itself can be gas, liquid , and even solid, so long as it can be vaporised ( for instance solid wheat flour or coal dust works when combined with enough air)
Other uses of this would be in Fuel Air explosives
this in itself is a complex topic but can be achieved with little technology and is very effective
Learning how to grow your own food is the only sustainable way that you are going to survive in the long term should society collapse
one manner is via fish farming and aquaphonics
Of coarse you need an effective pump — PUMP ideas
one that can be made from scratch
also you can use a pipe and some rope in a loop – ROPE Pump and threading the rope through will cause watter to rise — nice thing is its very easy to improvise and can be powered with a VAWT wint turbine vawt savonius – they have high torque compared to other designs and are self breaking and can be made with very little knowhow.
