SurvivalBlog Resources: Retreat Security

Introductory Note: The following is another in a series of articles by JWR that will link to some of the thousands of archived SurvivalBlog articles and letters, grouped topically.

Today, we address the broad issue of retreat security measures.

In my estimation, many preppers have a tendency to over-buy on their gun budget and under-buy on their night vision and intrusion detection budget. I would much rather own just a few guns and have a full complement of other key retreat security gear. After all, humans can’t see well at night with un-aided eyes, and we can’t be vigilant 24 hours a day. Many of the following articles address such gaps in retreat security planning, gear, and training. And some of your most important “gear” might be very low tech or even “no tech”—such as trip flares, bells, and well-trained guard dogs.

Thee following are just a sampling of the articles and letters on retreat security that have been posted over the past 11 years:

Closing Note: You can use our recently improved Search box at the top of the blog’s right hand column to find even more articles. (The ones that I’ve linked to are just a sampling.) The new Search tool is much more useful that the old one. When searching, use quote marks around terms that need to appear together, for example: “photovoltaic panel”. You can also use the word “and” in search phrases to combine multiple search terms, such as “seismic and detection”. – JWR
