Pat’s Product Review: Montie Gear AR Rest

…to use properly and effectively. The fellow who sent me that product threatened to sue me if I ran the review, but I ran it! And, in fact he didn’t sue me. So, please, if you want me to give you a guarantee that I will give you products a positive review on SurvivalBlog, then don’t bother contacting me or Jim Rawles – that’s not the way we do business. SurvivalBlog readers deserve a fair and honest review of products.   The newest product under review today is called the “Original AR-Rest” and is being produced by Montie Gear. The folks at this company contacted me several weeks ago, and asked me to review some of their products, one was their new sling-shot, they were out of stock, but promised one would be coming in a few weeks. The other product is their AR-Rest, which arrived quickly, as promised. I’ve… Continue reading




Pat’s Product Review: Montie Gear Ultra-Lightweight Knife

…Over the years I’ve probably handled and tested well over a thousand different knife designs. I know a lot about knives. I look for quality materials in knives, then I look at their intended purpose, as well as the carry system – be they folders with pocket clips, or fixed blade knives with sheaths. I also look at the design of a knife, and I look at the price point, too. I test knives for sharpness and durability – do they do what they are supposed to do?   Some time ago, I wrote an article on the Montie Gear sling shot, and in my humble opinion, I believe it is the best sling shot on the market – albeit a little expensive – but it certainly is high quality. Montie Gear also came out with an attachment for their sling shot, that allows you to shoot arrows –… Continue reading




Pat’s Product Review: Montie Gear Slingshot

…propelling the ammo, more often than not, the rubber band was made out of an old tire inner tube (remember those days, when we had tubes in our tires?). I’ve also had some other better made slingshots pass through my hands over the years, and they were really a lot of fun, and very well-made, too.   Montie Gear has a new slingshot called the “Y-Shot” and I’m here to tell you, hands down, this is the best-made slingshot I’ve ever run across – PERIOD! The all-aluminum frame is made out of 1/2″ thick aluminum plate, cut with a water jet at 50,000 PSI for unrivaled strength and low weight. Then, Montie Gear either powder coats the Y-Shot in different colors, or leaves the aluminum bare – with a grayish oxidized color to the finish.   I’m gonna give you the run down on the specs, right from the MontieContinue reading

…the works of Hayek and Von Mises (among others) to understand capitalism and economics. You’ll learn how money works! To understand the “other side”, Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, which is ruling the Democratic Party and many in the Republican Party. Hillary Clinton did her college thesis on this book! – H.L. EMP Alen Nitzberg interviewed Dr Peter Pry (Executive Director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security) on his show and discussed the background and current dangers of an EMP on our infrastructure. If you’re struggling to get a handle on this subject, this is a good interview to listen to. It is about one hour long. Thanks to B.B. for the link.
