    Default A magazine I recently purchased

    I found this magazine in our local grocery store:
    http://www.americanhandgunner.com/survive/
    (Scroll down to see the magazine cover)

    While I realize there are all kinds of content on the internet regarding survival / prepping, there were some interesting articles in the magazine on topics I had never heard of i.e. SODIS water purification http://www.sodis.ch/methode/index_EN

    In this issue the front half covers survival / prepping topics, the back half is essentially a gun catalog covering a wide variety of manufacturers and types i.e. pistols, rifles, shotguns, black powder.....

    Just thought I'd share what I ran across.

    I picked this up at Booksamillion a couple of weeks ago, primarily because of that SODIS method of water purification. There's some pretty good info in there, although I think it was a little pricey..

    Yeah, I agree 10.00 was steep, but flipping thru the magazine it didn't seem like a lot of fluff, so I went ahead and got it.

    That was me. There was also a good one in there about making window shutters and I picked up a good tip about using an oddball screwhead like a Torx when attaching them to make them more tamper resistant.

    All in all, a well put together magazine.

    The cover reminds me of the old American survival guide magazines, I miss those.
