Howdy everyone! Well, I've always been interested in preparedness, even when I was younger. I've been through enough emergencies and what some would call 'disasters' that I have always had some sort of gear. Getting involved in Search and Rescue four years ago gave me some insight into things and gave me an excuse to buy more expensive gear
I've also been doing martial arts since I was nine and I was raised around firearms so I spend a lot of time doing things relevant to the forum.
