STOCK YOUR PANTRY TO SURVIVE ANY DISASTER
When a catastrophic collapse cripples society, grocery store shelves will empty within days. But if you follow this book’s plan for stocking, organizing and maintaining a proper emergency food supply, your family will have plenty to eat for weeks, months or even years, with meals such as:
• French Toast
• Black Bean Soup
• Chicken Pot Pie
• Beef Stroganoff
• Fish Tacos
• Potatoes Croquette
• Asian Ramen Salad
• Quinoa Tabouli
• Rice Pilaf
• Buttermilk Biscuits
• Peach Cobbler

Packed with tips for off-grid cooking, canning charts for over 20 fruits and vegetables, and checklists for the best emergency pantry items, The Prepper’s Cookbook will have you turning shelf-stable, freeze-dried and dehydrated foods into delicious, nutritious dishes your family will love eating.

I think you'll be shocked by what you are about to read. If you believe we are heading for any number of wide-spread emergencies in the near future you may be making plans. Believe it or not, many people are making a fatal mistake by overlooking a serious component of their preparation. You may have plenty of stockpiled firearms and ammunition. But what will you do if you are under attack and can't get to your firearms?

Whether you are planning for Armageddon, trying to win back control of your hijacked airliner from radical extremists, or just trying to stay safe while out in public, there may come a time when you will have to defend yourself without a firearm.

Sound unbelievable? It shouldn't. Suppose someone walks into a movie theatre and starts shooting. As he reloads you've got the chance to take him out. Would you be prepared?

This portion of prepping is often overlooked. This is for the self defense area in-between going strictly hands on and traditional firearms. Welcome to the little discussed world of improvised weapons--items that are not normally used for weapons, but in the right hands can be deadly.

If you are bold enough, you will discover how to protect yourself or your family without traditional firearms using everyday, ordinary objects you've got on hand right now, or could have on hand with just a little advance planning. Items that are absolutely legal to carry anywhere, but can be used instantly as weapons.

Many people have firearms stashed in their homes in case of a home invasion. But they may pass by other items in their home that could be just as easily used as a weapon to get to their hold-out weapon. By the time we are done you will be able to walk into a room and instantly be able to identify not only one, but several items you could use as a weapon when the fabric of society rips apart at the seams.

Here are just a few of the tips, tricks and techniques you’ll discover in "Prepper's Underground Guide to Improvised Weapons!"

The five types of improvised weapons and why impact weapons are the easiest improvised weapon for the average person.

You'll understand the "Best Fight" concept. Failing to understand this and you'll be in for a world of misery.

The three methods for target selection and why selecting the wrong target can have disastrous results.

Not only will you learn what to use for a weapon you'll discover how to strike with each, including different grips and attacking from multiple angles.

A simple "weapon" you can carry right now, out in the open that no police officer or mugger would ever question. This is especially easy for the ladies.

How to add power to your punch without damaging your hand. What good does it do to knock someone out if you break your hand in the process?

An easy alternative to a palm sap that no one would possibly dream could be used as a weapon.

The difference between a slingshot and a slungshot and five slungshot alternatives.

The difference between a sap and a blackjack and five alternatives.

A sap alternative that looks like a geek but hits like a brick.

Have you ever thought what you'd do if your plane was taken over by terrorists? Thanks to TSA you've got no weapons with which to fight back. Or do you? I'll show you several items on every plane that can easily be used as weapons.

You'll discover two weapons you usually always have with you.

Just wait until you see items that can be used as weapons in your car, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room, garage and while you are out on the town.

I'll reveal two weapons you can carry on your bike that no one would ever suspect is a weapon.

MUCH MORE…

The time to plan how you will react to a violent life or death encounter without a firearm is NOW. Not tomorrow, not next week and certainly not while you are confronted by some low life riff raff just looking to make an easy victim of you. By then it just might be TOO LATE…
 
Maybe you just need some fiction for summer reading from Megan Ralston called Preppers.
Preppers

STORYLINE: Skylar Anderson and her family have been preparing for the zombie apocalypse for as long as she could remember. But when it finally happens, she finds that nothing could have prepared her for the reality of a world over-run with the undead--Especially when her parents are arrested as suspects for creating the first zombie. Trying to keep her friends, family, and a hodge-podge group of survivors safe without the guidance of her parents turns out to be a much more difficult task than Skylar could ever have anticipated.
