Getting back to his roots, Jesse James focuses on his newest venture at the Austin Speed Shop.
Host Don Wildman takes us on a CGI journey back in time to visit some of the dirtiest cities in our planet's history. SCAM SCHOOL host Brian Brushwood shows you how to perform simple and very cool looking tricks with just a few rubber bands. But before I talk about the gun, I have to talk about my worst-case scenario and my philosophy on survival. I have to bug out on foot with my family, which presently includes multiple small children.
There are other people leaving the city, as well, so the open carry of a large gun would invite unwelcome scrutiny and quite possibly hostility from people who are either afraid of seeing an armed man or who want my gun for themselves. Obviously, I’m making bug-out plans that involve vehicles and so on, but the absolute worst-case scenario is something like the above.
Maximum utility and flexibility for minimum weight and space, because my worst-case scenario involves leaving a major city on-foot with my family.
But I already started and progressed quite a ways in building and modding a Ruger Mark III Hunter (with an Aimpoint scope) before I ran across Freedom Arms, and the Mark III + Aimpoint combo also ticks all of the above boxes.
Based on this SERE piece and on the reviews I’ve seen online (both product reviews and numerous forum posts), I went with Aimpoint red dot optics. Speaking of pulling the Aimpoint off, I’m considering a possible mod that would ensure that I could always unmount the sight, even in a bind. Obviously, this is a lot of money to spend on tools, but it’s not just for this gun alone. EMP stands for electromagnetic pulse, and occurs in the form of a large burst of electromagnetic radiation that has the potential to disrupt electricity, radio waves, magnetic fields, Wi-Fi, and most other forms of electric currents we use on a daily basis. Whether a potential EMP comes in the form of a manmade nuclear attack or a natural solar flare, the effects could be disastrous.  Granted, the devastation would largely depend on the strength and severity of the pulse and the location toward which it was geared.
In the worst-case scenario, an EMP could result in a total grid-down scenario and loss of all things electricity. While this would cause most of mankind to resort to primitive measures of survival not seen since the Dark Ages, certain members of society would fare far worse than others.  Among the most at-risk for prolonged survival after an EMP are the elderly, the disabled, and young children and babies.
These individuals often require personalized medical care that involves the use of electronic systems, from diabetes test meters to respiratory aids to heart monitors, the functionality of which are threatened by an EMP. With so many categories of individual at heightened risk of losing their life-support systems after an EMP strike, its important to have backups of the most essential life-sustaining devices stored in EMP-proof containers for the best chance at long-term. Again, the effects electronic systems will suffer from an EMP largely depend on its size and altitude.  Some solar flares and low-output nuclear bombs may have very little electromagnetic effect on the earth, but precautions should be taken nonetheless.
One survival tool for electronically sensitive equipment is the Faraday cage, a metal box designed to absorb the surge of an EMP without harming its contents.
However, many containers are suitable for impromptu Faraday cages including ammunition cases, metal filing cabinets, truck bed cabinets, and the like.  Therefore the thickness of the box doesn’t make much difference in determining its effectiveness against EMP waves, though thicker metal is likely to work better overall (think a large safe).
Ultimately, it’s all about how you insulate and shield your devices.  Thus, a washer or dryer could be used to store some larger or obscurely shaped devices if needed, so long as all sides are made of metal and have a tightly fitting lid.
For most home and commercial electronic devices, surge protectors and lighting arrestors serve to protect the systems from failure in the event of a power outage–fortunately they will also protect them against the effects of an EMP.
For better or worse, since we have yet to experience an EMP strike, its unknown as to how effective surge protectors and resistors will be in a real-world event.
EMPs are most commonly associated with nuclear blasts, and were first tested under the American nuclear weapons development of the 1940s and 50s.


Thus, an EMP would deliver the most devastating effects to earth if a nuclear weapon exploded in space–or high in the earth’s atmosphere. Accordingly, scientists and astronomers have long been studying the effects of the radiation produced by solar flares.  As far back as 1859 with the Carrington Event (from August 28 till September 2), the largest geomagnetic storm ever recorded occurred and disabled telegraph systems all across Europe and North America. A study conducted by Lloyd’s of London and the United States’ Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER) estimated the results of such a storm would have a $2.6 trillion effect on the world economy.
More recently, a series of solar storms in the 1970s was substantial enough to bring an end to the widespread use of CB radios, in addition to disrupting commercial radio and television transmissions. Like any disaster, there’s no way of knowing the true effects of an EMP until it actually happens.  Ideally, we will never know what that experience is like, as it could mean utter devastation for most of mankind in its worse form. For those dealing with life-threatening medical issues, losing access to electricity may be a life and death scenario.  Most evidence suggests the likelihood of a worst-case scenario is slim, but if your life depends on it you should take the necessary precautions.
About the Author Latest PostsAbout Cody GriffinCody Griffin is do-it-yourselfer, and avid outdoorsman. It is worth noting that after the 1859 solar storm event, light bulbs exploded and fires were started in homes.
The testing on cars and trucks in regards to EMP were done as levels in the 25kv to 30kv range and some vehicles survived. Because of the insufficient amount of hard data, scientists have tried to do mathematical calculations about the strength and effects of the different components of the EMP.
And the same God who made the heavens and the earth, created man with soul and an intellect and charged him to take care of His earth and have dominion over it.
Critical point left out: the items stored in ammo cans or METAL garbage cans MUST be insulated from the container, or it is useless. No it's wouldn't any electrical component would be destroyed, kinda like how your car would be useless because of the electrical components. All comments, messages, ideas, remarks, or other information that you send to us (other than information protected according to the law) become and remain our property.
This would be a gun that I could use to take game and feed my family, and that I could also put to defensive use in a jam. So in this scenario, weight and space are at a premium — I have to be able to conceal the gun and the ammo, and carry it for miles in my pack, all the while knowing that I may be depending on this gun and my ammo to feed and defend my family for an indefinite amount of time. As with all my prepping-related projects, which are often as much about acquiring cool gear as they are about preparing for doomsday (which I don’t honestly expect to happen in my lifetime), money is not a major consideration. The Micro H-1, which is just the (now discontinued) silver version of the Micro R-1, has gotten high marks for durability, accuracy, and battery life. I’ve got other guns that I look forward to maintaining on my own with these tools, so this toolset represents an investment that will continue to pay off regardless of whether doomsday comes or not.
I try to hit the pistol range at least one day a week, and I’ve always been a good shot.
Whatever it is being stored in the Faraday cage must be insulated from the inside metal surface of the box, but should otherwise remain protected. On the contrary, the metal construction of most cars and trucks act as virtual Faraday cages for the electronic components contained within.  Therefore, if you were to insulate your vital medical electronics in tin foil, put them in a makeshift Faraday cage, and store it inside your vehicle, it should be protected from most moderate EMP strikes. While a powerful surge could wipe out the grid and shut off electrical services, the devices themselves would not be harmed if plugged into a surge protector.  However, they would need to be run on a backup power source in the event of this happening. In the end, the best way to protect vital electronics, like those medical devices needed to sustain life, is to keep them disconnected from external power sources, away from antennas, and shielded in a well-sealed and insulated Faraday cage. Even though things that are plugged in and turned off, there is still one leg of the switch that is connected to the circuit and that makes them vulnerable.


But vehicles have several windows, so how does glass work in protecting OR not protecting your electronic devises in a real EMP attack?
A parent boards the airplane with a child in arms, and all the other passengers on the aircraft hold their breath, hoping that the family does not sit near them.But now that parent is you: how can you avoid fulfilling the other passengers' worst fears - and your own?
It is advisable to keep them close to your body — preferably facing you — during take-off and landing.
I realize that a battery is a liability in a real SHTF situation, but the Aimpoint battery can power the device for some five years of continuous use–so basically forever, in practical terms. This way, if I lose one of the inserts, or the Aimpoint dies in the field, I can pull off the grips and access all the parts I need to get my iron sights back in working order. But in a bug-out situation, I want to use every available advantage to get the most game for the least amount of ammo, so that means hitting my target every time. Some European carriers provide a special infant seat belt that attaches to the adult's seat belt. I’ll be buying and modding other guns for different types of scenarios, and blogging about those, too.
The other issue is that if I were to use a compensator, I’d want it integrated into the barrel.
On longer flights, larger aircrafts sometimes have bassinets for infants in the bulkhead seats, which should be reserved well in advance.While bringing your child on your lap entails a significant saving, it is not necessarily the easiest or safest way to fly. If you do purchase a separate seat for your child, he or she will be safest (and probably most comfortable) in an FAA-approved car seat. Regulations vary: some airlines do not allow rear-facing car seats and others do not allow very small infants to travel in car seats at all. So check your airline's regulations before flying.Get the gearAs with any adventure, the key to success often lies in having the right gear. This ingenious invention eliminates the need for a stroller, allowing you to wheel your child through the airport, just like a roller bag. Suitable for children up to 40lbs, it is essentially a car seat with collapsible wheels and handle.
The FAA-certified harness is useful for keeping squirmy toddlers buckled in during take-off, landing and times of turbulence.
CC SA 2.0Roll with itOn your travel day, arrive early at the airport and let your child run and explore as much as possible before boarding. Your child is going to have to sit still for a long time, so let him expend his energy now.Keep a stash of snacks in your carry-on. Milk is a magic potion that helps with ear pressure and provides a soothing sedative effect.
Purchase it before you board, as not all flights have milk on board.And, of course, keep a stash of surprises in your carry-on. Bring a few tried and true favourites, but be generous with books and toys that your kids have not seen.Most importantly, always expect the worst, even as you hope for the best. And no matter what happens on the airplane, remember that it will be worth it once you arrive in your destination.Need a few ideas on how to keep your young explorers entertained at home or on the road?
