Fighting superior forces

Survival Shelter

1. Everything can be breaked, forced, overwhelmed “Let them come, I will take down all of them” Yep, eventually someone will come, and NO sometimes you can not take them down all. You need to accept fact that point of survival is to survive, not to die like hero in big gunfight. I prefer to […]

For the folks who gone trough all of that and survived nothing was and will be like before. Whenever you watch TV […]
