I was recently gifted a copy of The Prepper Pages – Survival Medicine – A Surgeon’s Guide to Scavenging The Necessary Items for a Medical Kit, and Putting Them to Use While Bugging Out.. From Dr. Ryan Chamberlin recently.
Once my copy arrived I sat down and began reading. The book was so interesting I read it in one sitting. It really explains alot of common emergencies that will be widespread when SHTF or TEOTWAWKI hits the planet.

Picked this Norinco Model 320 up today cheap. Some idiot painted it so now off to the store for paint stripper. I decided to just sand it by hand it and using Brownell’s Aluma – Hyde 2 in flat black to put a durable epoxy based finish on it and adding a folding stock and IMI grips. After research this will accept IMI semi auto parts as it is basically an unlicensed clone of ISRAELI UZI. I’ll post pics of its progress and transformation on this blog as it progresses.
We are launching our single point V sling that mounts to the back of a MOLLE tactical vest or plate carrier using two straps and meets near the neck at the center front chest. It has three adjustment points and does not use bungee material this way the weapon is stationary and not bouncing during movement. The one pictured is our prototype and may change some as we experiment.
