Notes from JWR:

In honor of Patriots Day (April 19th), I’m kicking in something extra to Front Sight’s “Get a Gun” training and gear package offer: Anyone that enrolls between now and Sunday evening will also receive their choice of autographed copies of any of my three books: “Rawles on Retreats and Relocation”, “SurvivalBlog: The Best of the Blog.” or my novel “Patriots: Surviving the Coming Collapse”. Just forward me your Front Sight order confirmation, along with your snail mail address, and I’ll send you a complimentary autographed book.

Today we present another article for Round 16 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest. The writer of the best non-fiction article will win two valuable four day “gray” transferable Front Sight course certificates. (Worth up to $4,000!) Second prize is a copy of my “Rawles Gets You Ready” preparedness course, generously donated by Jake Stafford of Arbogast Publishing. Round 16 ends on May 31st, so get busy writing and e-mail us your entries. Remember that articles that relate practical “how to” skills for survival will have an advantage in the judging.
