Be Ready! Magazine

If you check your newsstand you’ll find the next issue of Be Ready! magazine to be hot off the press. If you’ve never seen it before, Be Ready! is a glossy full-color magazine put out once a year by Firearms News. It is intended to provide practical, relevant and timely information to help you prepare for sudden, unexpected emergencies and dangers. All you have to do is read the headlines to know why people all over the country are thinking more about preparedness.

Inside you'll find practical information, tips and techniques for dealing with a wide range of realistic scenarios you and your family might face. In this issue, Erin Smith provides a valuable “insider’s look” at how riots are organized and orchestrated by Antifa and Black Bloc. It’s heavy with valuable information in case you are caught in a riot. With so much uncertainty in the world today Smith also provides a comprehensive step-by-step plan for building your tribe of like-minded people. Other topics include vehicle self-recovery, titanium canteens, selecting the right backpack, a guide to bivy bags and how your dog can be a valuable aid during an emergency. There is also an in-depth piece on listening to short wave radio and why you should have a short wave radio receiver, plus much more.

When it comes to firearms, we have you covered. You’ll find a practical look at Mossberg’s 12 gauge Shockwave for personal protection. Will Dabbs and Michelle Hamilton examine the ever-popular .30 caliber M1 Carbine, and its usefulness today. Patrick Sweeney shares his thoughts on Mossberg’s MC2c compact 9mm pistol. Plus, we take a look at SureFire’s X400 Ultra weapon light.
