Most of ya know I am big on food and firearms. For the new preppers out there.If you have never gardened but think you have seeds put away and how hard can it be?
Well possibly real hard! Mother nature can be a cruel bitch.Then again with a little practice and if ol Ma nature smiles on ya, nothing to it. If at possible I say practice now.
The experience you gain could be invaluable. Same with canning,drying,fishing,hunting,trapping.
The heat of a crisis is not the time to learn from mistakes.And unless your name is Jesus you will make mistakes,and that's ok!
If you know how to trap,fish,hunt,forage wild edibles you will Never starve,at least if ya have a little gumption. Not as easy as popping something in the micro!
But I get real satisfaction from procuring,preparing and eating my own food.
Fresh caught crappie-catfish-bass fillets.Squirrel and gravy or rabbit and gravy.
If you have picked up a firearm for the collapse or whatever comes.If you are not familiar with said firearm you may have no defense.
I have a buddy who owns a mosin until we all went shooting and he seen me using stripper clips he thought you had to load it one at a time.Could you imagine that in the heat of a shoot out?
Practice.Practice,Practice until things become second nature.
