The Operator's Survival Tool




This is the O.S.T. It is an AR15 carbon scraping/survival multi-tool. It has a steel tool that scrapes carbon from the back of the AR15 bolt face, from within the bolt carrier, from around the locking lugs, from around the firing pin and much, much more. It houses a flint rod to use with the scraper tool to create sparks for a survival fire. It also houses a steel sharpening rod to keep your knives sharp and ready to work. All of these features are held by the weapons grade polymer housing. The whole tool was made to be small; the size of two CR123 batteries, so the O.S.T. can be stored within the battery compartment of common AR15 furniture (Forward Grips, Pistol Grips and Butt Stocks). If you are a hunter, shooter or just like to be prepared, the O.S.T. is perfect for you. For more information visit the website Click here

    March 10, 2017 - "Ways you can Determine Real from Fake Honey" By Joseph Parish. I have a friend who raises bees for their honey and he has informed me that not all honey is pure and originates from bees. There are an increasing number of fake honeys in existence today especially those jars arriving at our shores from foreign countries. With the increase in honey use these days this leaves a lot of room for less scrupulous people to sell this fake honey which is less than 100% pure. It is the intent of this article to let its readers know how to determine if the honey you just purchased is pure or fake. Click here

    March 10, 2017 - How To Turn Barrel Drums into Raised Garden Beds” Drums can be great for building raised garden beds. If you happened to have some barrel drums around collecting dust, this might be a good project for you. Just cut the drums in half and build a stand to support them. Your garden bed is than ready for some beautiful flowers or tasty vegetables.

    March 8, 2017 - "Hunting for Survival in the City When the SHTF" Wildlife in the city, well yes, and Merriam-Webster defines wildlife as living things and especially mammals, birds, and fishes that are neither human nor
    domesticated. That definition covers a lot of ground. Click here

    March 8, 2017 - "How to make sugar from your preppers retreat garden Stevia" By Amy S. A natural, calorie-free sweetener approximately 200 to 300 times as sweet as
    sugar? Sounds too good to be true, but it’s not — it’s stevia. This ultra-sweet plant originated in South America, but it’s been used in many countries for hundreds of years as a natural sweetener. Using stevia in place of sugar can cut calories and may keep your
    blood glucose level more stable, according to University of Utah Health Care. Whether you’re diabetic or just looking for a natural alternative to white sugar, saccharin or aspartame, stevia is a good choice. Click here

    March 7, 2017 - "Ensuring Radio Reception within the Shelter" The rules of conduct and the information given out by the authorities will be broadcast over the ultra-shortwave network (and in addition by the medium-wave transmitter).

Click here

    March 6, 2017 - "The Top 100 Things that Disappear first in a Crisis" This list is based upon the "Top 100 Things that Disappear First in a Crisis" list which has been circulating in various forms for several years.

Please refer to it every now and then, as it serves as a good reminder that you have considered at least these things. Click here

    March 6, 2017 - "The Prepper’s Guide to Female Hygiene" By Prepd. There are some things we can still count on to remain the same after SHTF, a woman’s time of the month being one of them. Even if you are not a woman, including female hygiene items in your prepping is still a great idea! If you have a female partner, sister or daughter over the age of 8, you can count on these items coming in handy. As an added bonus, if you don’t end up needing these things, they will still make great bargaining bags that can be used to trade for something you will use. Click here

    March 5, 2017 - "When to Plant Strawberries" By Julie Martens Forney. I’m a big fan of u-pick farms and have spent choice hours duck-walking along strawberry rows, gathering those bright red berries.

    March 5, 2017 - "How to Make a Delicious, Fruity Homemade Mead" Mead is considered by many to be one of the oldest, if not the first, fermented drink produced by humans. It is very easy to make, you can use a variety of ingredients to create different flavors, and it can be ready for drinking in as little as a few weeks after processing. Let’s take a look at a basic recipe that outlines the general steps, and you can feel free to improvise with different ingredients if you want a different flavor than what this one will provide. Click here

    March 4, 2017 - "Why You Should Be Stockpiling Coffee" By Liz Thornton. I take my long-term coffee storage very seriously. If you depend on and take your daily cup of Joe for granted, you should consider making it a higher priority in your prep too. Click here

    March 2, 2017 - "Update" Just a note that our E-book downloads have been updated with some interesting reading material. Time to add to your library collection.

    March 2, 2017 - "The White House Dilemma with a Laughing Fish" By Joseph Parish. I decided to start this months data of with a light hearted political fiction tale entitled The White House Dilemma with a Laughing Fish. It starts out it was a typical February day at the White House with Democrats still whining about losing the election and complaining how President Elect Trump should be impeached. The protesters like Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panther Party along with various Latino and Muslim anti-Trump protesters were in full spring attempting to undermine our Constitution and way of life. Of course everyone was used to their shenanigans so no one paid a “get-go” to what they had to say. In front of the White House was the usual bustle and activity of both friendly and hostile people going here and fro in all directions. Most were common people that you would normally see on the street except for one elderly lady whose voice could be heard echoing loudly above the rest. Click here

    February 28, 2017 - "Propagating Lemon Trees from Seeds at Home" By Joseph Parish. I am an old fan of garbage gardening and since living in the RV full time I have taken up drinking more tea than I do coffee. Over a period of time my desires of my body tend to change and to be honest with you, I have no idea why. Anyway, in combining my garbage gardening skills with my current tea drinking I decided to plant the seeds from the lemons that I add to my hot tea. Click here

    February 7, 2017 - "Join a CERT this winter” Many communities remain unprepared, as only 30% of those who live in winter storm hazard areas have participated in a disaster exercise in the past year. Even a small amount of snow can impact your community, making it critical to have a plan in place for winter weather. Be there for your neighbors when the next storm hits by finding a local CERT program near you and joining.

    February 5, 2017 - "A Forgotten Skill Weather Prediction" By PrepD. As of right now, only extreme weather affects our daily lives, but in a doomsday scenario we would need to know the weather to properly adapt shelter, make sure our rain barrels are ready, or to know the right time to plant our seeds for the garden. In the event of a coming disaster you should have already purchased a solar charged or hand cranked radio equipped with NOAA. Ideally, this would provide a way for you to hear news from the outside world and let you know if a giant hurricane or tsunami is headed in your direction. Every good little prepper should have a back-up plan in the event the hand radio had to be used in defense against a hoard of zombies, or there is no one left to broadcast the weather and tell you the latest news (cue in eerie, dark music).

    January 31, 2017 - "17 Survival Items You DON’T Need In Your Bug out Bag" By Alan. A while ago I wrote an article called 50 Items You Forgot To Put In Your Bug Out Bag. Several readers complained, saying things like, “How the hell am I supposed to fit all this stuff in my bug out bag?” Well, you’re not. The point of the article is to tell people about any items they would have included but either forgot about or hadn’t considered yet. Click here

    January 30, 2017 - "Building a Load out Plan for Your Vehicle" Most people’s primary plan is to bug out by vehicle which makes a lot of sense given how much further you can travel and how much more you can carry.

    January 12, 2017 - "US Army Ranger Airborne Combat Medics Apocalypse Trauma Aid and Medical Kits … Post-Collapse" By Matt Marshall. In most American homes the average first aid kit is incapable of treating any degree of life threatening injury.

Even worse, at your workplace the ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) compliant first aid kits are identically useless. Click here
