Poor Man Survival

Self Reliance tools for independent minded people…

A Digest of Urban Survival Resources



Owning a firearm is a major responsibility. In fact, there are three major responsibilities that an individual needs to take on when purchasing a firearm: learning how to use it properly, knowing how to maintain it so it will last a long time, and storing it so that only people who are authorized can access it.

Democrats have introduced a new bill called the “Untraceable Firearms Act of 2020.”

The purpose of this bill is to ban Ghost Guns.

This means it would be illegal to buy 80% receivers and to build the rest of the gun at home on your own.

Not only does the bill come after Ghost Guns, but it also bans 3D printed guns.

So, no matter what, this bill would make it illegal to make any kind of gun yourself at home.

Of course, you and I know this bill is nonsense and will do nothing to stop criminals from getting guns.

But, Democrats will never be able to understand that simple common sense.

So, what’s to be done?

Well, for the time being, go out and build some ghost guns. Ghost Glocks, Ghost AR-15s, Ghost 1911s and more.

If this passes, there will come a day where it’s illegal to build a Ghost Gun and you don’t want to miss your chance to do it (legally) while the window is still open.

Plus, it’s a heck of a lot of fun to build your own gun and you get to customize it how you wish.

But, our new Hiding Guns book, tells you what you must know, including one way to get “off the books” guns that’s even better than a Ghost Gun.

So, I would definitely consider building a Ghost Gun soon and also learning others ways to get non-traceable guns before it’s too late.

Stay safe,

Other Bits n Pieces

I have just read a report from the Federal Reserve predicting that the next print on GDP numbers will likely show a loss of 34.9 percent in the second quarter. This is the biggest GDP plunge since the Great Depression; even the crash of 2008 doesn't compare.

With the supply chain in disarray, many companies (like Apple) are trying to shift their manufacturing base to dodge the pandemic. Of course, none of them want to bring factories back to the U.S.; there's simply no incentive to do so. The small business sector has been crushed by the shutdowns, with the vast majority of those seeking bailout loans still waiting for aid and over 20.5 million employees laid off in April alone.

Needless to say, the economy has been severely affected.


It’s Not Just About the Stock Market. Other Economic Measures are Both Telling and Unprecedented.

 For many people, the stock market is the economy’s scoreboard. When it goes down things must be bad and when it goes up things must be good. Unfortunately, the stock market was exploding into a bubble before coronavirus showed up largely due to corporate stock buybacks, investor over-confidence, and to put it bluntly—greed.

 The stock market continues to swing wildly, diving down one day and rocketing up the next. The fact of the matter is the stock market is at best the canary in the coal mine. It can tell you something’s wrong, but it can’t tell you why...

With the concern for food supply chain complications, we are all looking for ways to bulk up our food supplies. While I am a huge proponent for preserving the bounties of the garden during times when food may be scarce, there are so many other ways to utilize this low-cost food preservation tool.
