In E217, we sit down with James Price to discuss tactical schools and training. He’s going to lift up the skirt on the tactical training industry and show us what’s going on. He’s also going to share with us where many of us are training for the wrong thing in the wrong way.

We begin and end every episode with a special message. It’s our motto and the thing ITRH promises. In fact, it’s the ITRH tag line: Stay safe and sound!

The show is weighed towards the Safe part of that tagline. The subjects about staying safe are the fun and exciting topics to cover, after all.

But it’s important to address the Sound part from time to time. Sound, as ITRH uses it, means sound in mind. This unpacks to doing things for the right reasons, preparing for and nailing down our preps starting with the most likely, and making the most out of the limited time and resources we all have.

Now, about a decade ago you would have found Jonathan, Jason, and myself feverishly looking up tactical schools and gear. But there was a problem with what we were doing: We were acquiring skills starting from the least likely. This can also be said about the gear we were acquiring.

This episode addresses that. My scope of what I’m concerned about and see as possible are broader than James’. But the core message is the same: Train the way we prepare; start with and master the most likely first.

Tactical Schools and Lies:

  • Why training like a Navy Seal, Delta Force, Green Berret, Ranger, or Force Recon operator is all WRONG for civilians
  • Bad tactical marketing
  • Training for defense and realistic scenarios
  • What does being a "good" shooter mean
  • The lies tactical schools tell to sell
  • Using math and probability for advantage over your attacker
  • The specialized training your attacker has that you don't and who this will give the advantage to them
  • Understanding fun experience vs. survival skills
  • Why and how women should be trained differently than men and how it's not a misogynistic viewpoint
  • The best tactical training for civilians

In this book club episode, we're joined by author Zack Lynn to discuss surviving on a sailboat in the zombie apocalypse.

Surviving on a Sailboat in a bugout scenario presents several advantages and disadvantages. Advantages include not being stuck in a bunker with now windows, fishing, and mobility, to name a few. But you are constrained by the weight of the times you can store, inclement weather, and bobbing zombies.

There's also considerations about what kind of boat. And many other considerations.

Years, back we explored sailboats as an option for both living and bugging out. But we never fully addressed life on a sailboat in a grid down and hostile environment.

Zombies, as we've said in the past, provide an interesting and highly complicated scenario forcing deep thought and extensive nuanced consideration. So it's ripe for thought experiments most other situations don't present.

As it turns out, Zack has spent lots of time considering just such a situation. He even wrote a book about it.


~ The Author, Book, and Surviving on a Sailboat Discussed: ~

* How he became a writer
* Authors that inspire Zack
* What prompted Zack to become a prepper
* Where the inspiration for the book came from

* Why zombies
* The upside of surviving on a sailboat
* The downside of surviving on a sailboat
* How writing this book changed the way he and his family prepare
* The main character's go-to long gun and why
* What's the best $100 he's ever spent on preparedness
