  1. Found a MUCH MUCH better manual for the Boafeng UV-5R series radios. Pass along the link. When you click on it a blank page will load asking to download a PDF. If you have trouble with it, message me your email address and I'll send it to you. This manual explains how to actually use your radio and is written in good English, not terrible translations.


  2. To anyone who's interested in comms and/or radio use. Please check out AmRRON.com

      I like AmRRON's "Comms Up" videos.  Yes, we all need to be a part, you don't need to be a ham operator to join.

  3. I'd be somewhat surprised if the election 2020 cycle or results don't kick things off. So many states already vowing to dump the electoral colleges if they don't vote as they are told too. Or if Trump legitimately wins again, the rest of the stooges will do whatever it takes to get into office. The corrupt diseased portion of the government wants a war on its subjects to stay in power. They can see the writing on the wall. They know their time is limited. Our movement grows each day. People crave freedom and want better lives for themselves and their families. Home school numbers are ever increasing and patriots are getting prepared everyday. But even with seeing the light in the darkness, doesn't mean we can lax on our preparations. Stack as much of everything you can while you can. Our communities will rely on us to rebuild.
  4. A short snip-it from a great article. The author is discussing using expanding lethal ammo, and the reasons to do so. He also discusses why its important to stock up on expanding ammo and not just range ammo. Just remember, big bullets make big holes, big holes bleed more. The faster they bleed, the less they can fight.


    The shocking thing that a U.S. Army combat medic who treated over 20,000 gunshot victims learned about ammunition

    In fact, here’s an important article by a former U.S. Army combat medic who explains this in great detail. Take the time to read that article, because it will change your whole thinking about what sort of ammo you should be stockpiling for SHTF.

    FMJ ammo in the 5.56 caliber merely “punches straight holes” through people’s limbs, accomplishing nothing. Remember, 5.56 ammo is only the diameter of a pencil eraser. Poking pencil eraser-sized holes in people who are trying to kill you is a tragic mistake. If they’re trying to harm you, and you’re invoking your right to self-defense, you need to be punching massive holes that rip their bones apart and cause them to completely stop their attack on you due to the laws of skeletal physics. If you merely punch tiny holes in people, you’re only encouraging them to rethink why they decided to be there at that moment, but you haven’t forced them to stop. Yes, you might motivate them to change their mind and go away, but you haven’t really solved the problem until they’re involuntarily forced to stop attacking you.

    As the former combat medic explains in the above article — which you will find astonishing and perhaps unbelievable — shooting people with pistols almost never kills them. Here’s why:

    On the civilian side, I saw only one single-shot kill from a pistol ever, and that was from a .357 magnum, within a living room, probably not more than five yards. The round entered the sternum and exited the spine. In fact, within the US, the vast majority of people that I saw shot lived after receiving medical treatment. That includes attempted suicides. I even had a patient live after a self inflicted shotgun wound to the face. He died of the cancer he was attempting to flee from, months later.

    Beyond that, I do have recorded kills with a 9X19, but they all required multiple shots or they all took time to die.  Time enough to return fire or flee far enough to have to search for them. I don’t mean seconds of life, either — I mean minutes or hours. I have seen people shot that had to traverse long distances that still got away.

    I’ve seen a lot of pistol shootings, much more than US police would ever see, and much more than experienced by most medics deploying solely with US personnel. And yet, I have zero, not one single experience, where a single gunshot wound from a 9X19 NATO round killed someone prior to them being able to return fire or flee. This includes people shot in the chest, back, back of the head (one hit behind the left ear) the neck and the face.  None.

    He even explains that standard AR-15 rounds (5.56 NATO) aren’t very effective, either:

    Unfortunately, the same goes for the 5.56 NATO round. I have yet to witness a single shot quick kill with this round. I even recorded a patient shot from less than three feet away, square in the back of the head, who lived. The round did not exit his body. Yes, he was immediately rendered unconscious and required (might I say exceptional) medical treatment. He was comatose for at least six months after that, but he lived.

    But more importantly, in every experience, at ranges from zero (negligent discharges) to 35 yards (my closest, and worst-placed, shot on a person) to 400 yards (our average initial engagement distance in Afghanistan) individuals shot with a single 5.56 NATO round had time to fire, maneuver, or both. Did I see single shots that killed eventually? Yes. Does that matter in combat? Not one damn bit if you are the one they are still shooting at.

    In my experience, the standard NATO combat round pokes 5.56mm holes in both bones and flesh, shattering nothing. It creates minimal bleeding. I know people say it tumbles and yaws, but that isn’t my experience at all. I saw it poke tiny holes in humans and rarely induced hemorrhaging sufficient to cause unconsciousness or uncompensated shock, which is the only result that matters.

    On the flip side, having a patient who was shot by a 7.62X51 NATO or larger round was a rarity. Dead people aren’t patients, they are a supply issue.

    … Take from that what you will. For me, what I learned is, when it comes to combat, shoot the heaviest rifle round I can, shoot at what I can hit, and then shoot it again if I can. I also learned that, in general, multiple organ damage shortens the time a patient is able to compensate for hemorrhagic shock far greater than the effect of a larger wound track in a single organ.

    The bottom line? Yes, you need to stockpile ammo. But more importantly, you need to stockpile expanding ammo that will get the job done. This is especially for those of you who own AR-15s and you have nothing but standard 5.56 FMJ / NATO ammo, which flat-out doesn’t get the job done.

    Whether you’re rolling a 9mm pistol or an AR with 5.56 ammo (or something bigger), it’s the ammo itself that determined the effectiveness of shots placed on target. Yes, you can practice with FMJ ammo, but you should carry something that’s far more effective.

  5. If the regular army follows these orders they are all traitors. If they are ever given this order, they have a duty to disobey it. If they are wise they will take the CO into custody.
  6. I totally agree. As much as it infuriates me, I don't see it as our duties to guard the border. Mostly due to the political climate of today and the current connotation of the word "militia". Unfortunately for us, even if standing tall at the border is necessary for your area we will be demonized and if possible charged with a crime. The government hates competition of any kind, so when we do their job for them it doesn't help any. Keep your units trained and supplied. Stay vigilant. Keep a weary eye on the future and your local community. We are much more valuable to our communities as true "first responders" in the meaning of we will beat the police and EMS to any scene since citizens are the ones who notify them in the first place. Being armed to stop an active shooter, knowing advanced first aid and stopping if you see a car accident, or the classic helping someone change a tire on their car. These are the ways we can make a difference every day. Take care of your community first. If you drive 12 hours with your full kit and get into trouble, even if its not legitimate, its easy to convince people you went looking for trouble. BUT- On the other hand, if militia units were called to action by the Governor of the State then I'll be in one of the first trucks leaving for the border.
  7. It makes me happy to see this much activity in the Texas page. Now lets get everyone out and training. Don't let the lack of gear or weapons, or possible physical limitations stop you. There is always a job for everyone. From logistical planning, to field operations, any person of any condition can contribute and be a valued team member! Now let's train!
  8. I will be starting a video series soon covering medical info. It will cover the TCCC guidelines currently used by our armed forces, as well as some of my hands on experience and info learned while in EMS. Please feel free to ask questions if you want or need additional information or clarification on any of my post or videos. Thanks for checking in, stay tuned!

      Thanks for the early feedback. I will share links here once the videos are posted. We got a new camera setup and have started recording. I am playing with the setting but hope to shoot the first full video this weekend. Please let me know if there's anything specific you have questions over and I'll do my best to answer. Also, once the videos are up please like, share, and comment.

  9. Check out Texas State Militia Houston on Facebook or here https://tsmhouston.org/ we have people currently in your area

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
