Be Ready! is Back

Be Ready! is Back


All you have to do is read the headlines to know why people all over the country are thinking more about preparedness. Whether it's catastrophic weather, utility breakdowns, terrorist attack or the collapse of civil order, millions of Americans aren't willing just to hope for the best. They are taking active measures to get ready for times when stopping at the grocery or the ATM won't be options. They're preparing for a time when having your own secure water supply, a reliable source of electric power, non-perishable food and a place to go could mean the difference between surviving and not surviving. Guns? You bet. This is a publication of SHOTGUN NEWS, a respected part of the firearms industry for almost 70 years. But it's so much more, too!

BE READY! will cover the must-have skills and supplies you need to survive dangerous times. We'll cover ways to ensure you don't go thirsty, ways to treat the sort of injuries that can happen in a chaotic environment, ways to stay in touch with friends and family members when your cell phone quits working. We'll show you ways to avoid confrontation with the predators who appear when things go wrong, and what to do when you can't avoid them. Your car is a vital tool for survival; we'll talk about how to prepare it, how to keep it going, and how to get it loose if it gets stuck. We'll examine foods that make sense in a survival situation and the equipment you'll need to prepare them. BE READY! will be a trove of valuable information and ideas for survival.
