         The Yugo was my first assault  weapon. Over the years I've replaced the old wood stock for a new Tapco stock.The Yugo is a fun weapon to shoot. 7.62x39 is a very inexpensive ammo to shoot you can pick up a box for about 5 bucks(20 rounds) The first picture you will see is what the Yugo used to look like when I first got it.Then next three pictures is what it looks like now with the Tapco stock and the BSA Red Dot Scope. The SKS is a Soviet semi-automatic rifle chambered for the 7.62x39mm round,designed in 1943 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov .The SKS is a gas-operated weapon that has a spring rod and gas piston rod that work the action locking system. During the time when there was a ban on assault weapons they were disassembled.When the ban was lifted they were put back together, but matching serial numbers really didn't happen So having an SKS or an AK with all matching serial numbers has more value.

The Bushmaster C15 M4 Type Carbines are a unique hybridization of traditional AR-15 type features with space age Carbon 15 composite molded Receivers for light weight and rugged durability.

  • Lightweight Carbon 15 Composite Receivers-40% Lighter than comparable aircraft aluminum receivers-unaffected by moisture-will corrode-matte black throughout (no surface finish to wear off). Upper Receiver includes anodized aluminum Picatinny rail for unlimited sight, scope or optics mounting.

  • Shipped in Lockable Hard Case with operation and safety manual,  30 Round Magazine and Black Web Sling. 

         Now guys I know what you're are thinking another guy talking about the plastic AR 15, but guys if you haven't shot one, don't knock it til you've tried it.There are guns out there that are made out of carbon that are very reliable like the Glock for one. I have a Bushmaster C15 and I love it, I've shoot it a lot on the range and, I've been on the range with a lot of high end guns that have jammed and mine hasn't jammed once. I know people say that you pay for what you get, but that's not always true. A buddy and I wanted to get MP3 Player, he got one for $200 bucks and I just wasn't paying that so being me I went on Ebay and got one for $47 bucks. His lasted for 6 months and this has been 2 year's ago and mine is still working. I guess what I'm trying to say is just because it's high priced doesn't mean it's high quality.

Hearing Safety by John O' Conner

This is a guest article from John O' Conner:

Hi my name is John O' Conner, I am a father, outdoorsman and passionate about living a healthy lifestyle. Over the past few years I have become more and more interested in hearing loss. MY father and grandfathers, who are and were all hunters, are affected by hearing loss. I feel that is a gerneral lack of understanding around the issue it is our job to spread awareness where we can.Chekc out my new blog at

Hunting and Hearing Safety

People don’t always make the connection between recreational sports like hunting and hearing loss. Although hunters spend billions of dollars on equipment each year, not all of them know to properly protecting their ears against noise injury. Hearing is often a neglected sense. Taking proactive steps to protect the delicate components of the ear will increase safety while out on a hunt.

My father and I have been hunting for many years.  When I was a young boy I remember helping him pack up all of his gear but don’t remember there ever being hearing protection with it all.  Looking back this wasn’t a good choice because now many years later, my father is affected severely by hearing loss.  He loves to still get out and shoot but because of his hearing loss he has to wear hearing aids to help him hear well.  Along with his hearing aids he always makes sure to have his hearing protection on as well. 

Let’s Talk About Noise Trauma

The hearing risk associated with gunfire and hunting comes down to one thing – noise. Sound pressure is an indicator of intensity or loudness. The higher the sound pressure, the louder the noise. Firearms produce an impact sound because of the high sound pressure. This key factor figures into the potential hearing loss for hunters.

Initially, there will be a temporary loss where hearing shifts back to normal within a few days. Longer, more pronounced exposure, leads to an increase in symptoms until the loss is permanent.

Hearing Safety Measures

For hunters, safety is not a new concept. They can take precautionary measures to insure ear health to make the sport even safer.

Know the SPL rating of the firearm. This refers to the sound pressure from the gun or rifle. As a general rule, the longer the barrel, the lower SPL decibel is for that weapon. For example, a shotgun with an 18-inch barrel has an SPL of 156.30 while a 9mm handgun registers at 159.8. Accessories like a muzzle brake increase the noise level. Even a small difference in SPL matters. A 10 dB doubles the loudness of the firearm.

Wear ear protection when you hunt. Hearing protection devices have a rating system to gauge effectiveness. Hunters should use protection with a noise reduction level of at least 29 dB.


Earmuffs provide an acoustic seal that reduces noise.  Hunters should select muffs with a rounded or tapered edge. A common failing of earmuffs is the point of contact between the protection device and the cheek. The weapon stock presses against the muff, raising it up and reducing the effectiveness on one side. Muffs must fit snuggly without coming in contact with the weapon. Earmuffs offer warmth during fall and winter hunting excursions too.


The right earplugs may be a better option for hunters. Foam plugs are comfortable to wear, fit snuggly and do not interfere with the hunt. The foam means the plugs are lightweight and easy to transport while moving through the field. Earmuffs and custom fitted plugs are expensive, and may have short shelf lives. The cost of foam products makes them a practical option.

Electronic Protection

Electronic protection devices come in both plugs and muffs. The design allows the hunter to hear the environmental background noises without suffering the effects of sound pressure from the gunfire. Electronic protection pieces contain a filter that eliminates any sound over 85 dB. This means wind, voices and the sounds of wildlife are still within hearing range.

Hearing is a sense that is often times neglected and not taken seriously.  In following some of the tips above and making smarter choices when out in the range, one can ensure healthy hearing for the future.

Home security


                              As they say a man's home is his castle, and it's the place he keeps his most treasured items. Such as his electronics, guns,cars and the most prized possession his family, all the more reason to maintain security. My day started as usual with me going to work the day went well, until on the way home, I received a phone call from my wife. She said that there was man in the yard, and when our kids noticed him, he ran into the woods. I told her to check the back yard she said that no one was there. Then she walked into the living room and looked out the front door an saw a truck coming form  around the side of the house. She called the police who came, but since nothing was taken, they couldn't do anything at the time. I try to keep my home safe and secure for my family, but after this I will be taking more necessary precautions. The first thing I'll be doing is installing surveillance cameras as well as No Trespassing signs. Things are continuing to get worse as the times change, but when people come up in your yard with your family home and try to take what you own in broad day light it really makes you think and step up your game plan.

                         I would like to know what you guys have in the way of personal security around your homes. So please leave me a comment, and if you don't have personal security systems but have ideas please let me know what they are as well. Thanks guys and remember to always be safe and God bless America.

Bug Out Vehicle

                       Guys what vehicle would you take in a bug out situation, and what would you have in it? I have a family of four. So I couldn't take my big F150 with big tires because there isn't any room; so that's out. My wife's SUV has a lot of room for all of us, and room for all of our gear .Now packing the car for a bug out situation would be my wife's job because I think she can pack a month of clothes in one suit case, she is that good at packing.I have pretty much ever think together that I would take with us. A good thing to remember is to always have your car in good running condition such as good tires, batteries, gas, etc...When stuff's hitting the fan you don't want to have to be worrying weather you have had an oil change or not. I try to keep water, fire extinguisher, blankets, and a medical kits in the car at all times.You will need a good plan on what route you would take out of town and once you got out where would you go. These plans must be well thought out. You may need to do dry runs and see how long it would take you to get there, and what alternate route you can take if the first route was blocked with debris or even if there is a traffic jam and its so backed up that you can't get through. When things get this bad, and it will guys, be ready on all ends. Have tents/campers/buses (what ever you can get). To take care of your family. If you and your family can afford it buy a piece of land somewhere and start prepping and tell no one about the location or what you are doing. When SHTF you will need guns/ammo and a lot of it, if you guys have kids teach them how to shoot and how to prepare- so they can survive in the world after the storm

Preferably a 4x4 vehicle would be best due to maybe needing to travel off road to go around traffic jams or destroyed roads. Older vehicles that does not require computors or other technologies such as sensors would be easy to repair on your own. I would suggest also packing a basic tool set and jumper cables in your everyday carry in the vehicle. Jumper cables can also be used to start fires in a pinch. Diesel engines can run longer on crappy fuel better than a fuel injected vehicle.

So basically in a nut shell, also spend type prepping your vehicle you plan to bug out in.

Meats for prepping

SPAM<sup>®</sup> Black Pepper

              When stocking your shelves with some good canned meat always remember to buy the ones with the longest expiration date, and also remember to get the ones high in protein. Any of you guys who go to   Walmart with your lovely wives toss some into the buggy. It doesn't matter if you grab a couple of cans a week, or a month as long as you are preparing for the future. Now remember guys when you are getting these canned meats to make sure they are not dented cans. Dented cans do not hold the integrity of the foods in them and tend to spoil quicker, and have been known to cause food poisioning

SOL Origin Survival Kit

                      The sol origin survival kit  is a abs plastic water case .with a flip- signal mirror, fire striker, compass and a folding - blade knife are stowed on the outside  of the case .What is so nice about this is some of this items can be used while still in the case such as the compass, whistle and the LED light..The compass is very useful and the box has been demagnetized so that it can be used while still on the box. Now  while having some of the items are on the outside like your knife, compass,whistle,fire striker led light .you can open up to the inside and there you will find 150lb.- test braided nylon cord,mil-spec stainless wire, tinder quik, fire starting tinder,aluminum foil, safety pins and 62 tips on survival.

There is extra room inside the kit to add more items for you to personalize the kit. The lid of the kit has a acrylic signaling mirror and it can be used with the kit being closed. I've tested it out to some pretty far distances and its rated as being tested out to 20 miles. The flash light can also be used for signaling. The spark wheel striker can be held up in the air and striked to make a signal also.

Some extra space can be given by removing the wrist lanyard and hooking it to the outside of the box. It keeps it handy.

Buck Tildon has written the survival tips book that is included in the kit. It has 62 survival tips in it to help you survive, pretty good stuff. The color of the kit is bright orange to help you find it in your backpack or if you drop it on the ground.

I reviewed the Spark Lite fire starter and the Firestriker is very similar. The tinder quick tabs work good, especially when wet. You just pull them apart and spark the wheel and you got fire. They will burn about 3-4 minutes. But you can also use them with matches, lighters, or firesteel.

This is a good personal survival kit. Its small and lightweight and easy to carry and the whole kit weighs 6.25 ounces. You can buy these at Sportsman's Warehouse. Check out Adventure Medical kits for more information.

Flashlight and head lamp for Zombies

         You can never have to much light, there are all kinds of lights that you will need. For instance head lamps so you can  have your hands free to fight off the zombie's.You may also need  mini lights that you can use in low low light situations. Spot lights are a really good light for seeing at a distance. Then you have tactical lights which are perfect to attach to your weapon, so it's not dropped while trying to secure your area. Weather you are fighting zombies or if you simply have a power outage or any kind of catastrophic disaster you should always have a back up light system in all parts of your everyday life.

Aurora Fire Starter

The Aurora was created and manufactured by Solo Scientific. Having a good fire steel with you is a must, and having it made in the USA is a plus in my book.The Aurora fire starter uses a large 1/4 diameter (.635 cm) composite flint steel/magnesium rod with a built-in 440c striking blade. I like these, and I've used the blade on the Aurora and it works great. The super alloy striking blade (made from tungsten, carbide, and cobalt) will never dull and if it does just simply just remove the screw and turn the blade over.  The striker blade is  harder than any knife blade. The Aurora is designed to function wet or dry, and has an overall length of 3.6" (9.14 cm) diameter of 6.25" (15.875 cm). The weight is 1.6" ounces and it's reasonably priced between $20-25 dollars.

First Deer

I know I've been a little slow the last few days getting out new reviews, but it's all been because of a hunt that I truly love being able to do. It's a group call OWL (outdoors without limits) this organization has been established for all men, women and children with disabilities to be able to participate in outdoor sports such as hunting and fishing. This includes the Wounded Warrior Project as well. I have the pleasure of being a guide during the hunting that is done here in South Carolina. It just so happens that one of the guides didn't have a partner for this afternoon's hunt, so he took my youngest son with him. Well Brandon is 11 years old and it isn't his first time hunting but it was his first ever kill today. I really couldn't tell you who was more excited his guide Tracy or Brandon. If you would like to learn more about Outdoors Without Limits, join a chapter or just work as a volunteer check out their website at www. They go all over the U.S. and have different chapters spread out far and wide. As always this has been Max Malone saying be safe and God bless America.

PSK Fishing Survival Kit

               Every one needs to keep some kind of fishing kit in there PSK. This kit should have some hooks with a variety of sizes, fishing line of at least 25 feet, sinkers and if they'll fit get some small bobbers. Keep these items in a water tight container to prevent the hooks from rusting and you have a light weight kit that takes up very little space.

Otter Box PSK (Personal Survival Kit)

                                  Using the Otter Box as my PSK (Personal Survival Kit). The Otter Box is a water proof  box to keep all your survival needs and your personal items in.

Duck Tape

       They is so much that you can use duct tape for. Such as taping a tent together, taping your clothes if they get torn , You can tape a knife to a stick and make a spear ,and you can also use it as a restraint if needed, like restraining zombies. It can also be stripped into little pieces and balled up to use as tinder. Duct tape is a versatile tool.

BIC Lighter

One of the things that I keep in my PSK (personal survival kit) is a BIC lighter. I know that you think a lighter well I don't smoke, but think for just a minute. If you are in an area where you don't have electricity then a lighter will serve you well. As long as you keep it dry you can light fires, and sure it to signal for help among other things, such as lighting a can of gasoline to blow up some zombies. So when you are making your own PSK, one of the things you may want to put into it is a BIC lighter. It can also be a back up for your firesteel or matches. And they are super cheap and can be purchased about anywhere. Always remember to get a bright colored lighter so it can be found if dropped. In a pinch you can also use the sparking wheel when the fuel runs out. We are trying to prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse/Natural Disasters and will continue with these articles.

Personal Survival Kit Containers

You can choose any type of container for a PSK, its what works for you. It can be an otterbox or Altoids tin. I chose the otterbox because of its waterproofness. Basically you  need something small enough to carry on your person and that will protect your contents. An otterbox roughly cost around 9 buck where an Altoids tin cost around 2 bucks.

Another reason I chose the otterbox is because its clear and I can easily identify my contents. Its virtually indestructible.

Take time to develop your kit, do it once and do it right. Then always keep it on your person.

      Today I am going to walk you through making a char cloth. First you should find a small tin, I used an Altoid container, and you should punch a small hole in the center or the lid. Afterwards you need to get some cotton, linen or jute and cut it into 1-2 inch strips. Place the strips in your tin, then you need to build a camp fire or use a camping stove placed on low heat. Now let's get started, place the tin on or in  your fire with your cloth on the inside, and make sure to close the lid. It will start to smoke heavily so make sure you are doing this in an open area. When the smoking stops you will have yourself a char cloth, but remember to allow the tin to cool before opening it. Char cloth is a wonderful thing to use for starting a fire with, matter a fact it's what was used many years ago before the match was invented.

these photos are my personal Blackout 1550

     I am doing this review on one of the best knives I've ever owned,  it is the Kershaw 1550 Blackout Knife. I have carried this knife for several years. I lost the same knife not long after I got it and immediately replaced it with the same kind. Now this knife is in my pocket even before I put my wallet in it. I even have left it at home a time or two while on my way to work and have turned around and gone back to get it. The blade is a Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel and it is an assited opening and let me tell you guys this knife is fast. The weight is real easy on the pocket weighing in at 3.5oz with the blade length at 4 1/2 inches it is a good size.You can use this knife in you EDC or as a tactical folder. I know that people say that their knife is the best and but the best doesn't mean it costs the most or is a more popular brand. The best is something that stands the test of time and so far this one has. My knife isn't new and it still works quite well, I also want you to know that I don't only carry the Kershaw Blackout in my front pocket. I also carry the Kershaw Tanto Blur in my back pocket. You don't have to carry a Kershaw brand knife, but I do recommend that you carry a knife of some sort. Cause you never know when it could come in handy and get you out of a sticky situation or even save your life. This has been Max Malone with Maximum Survivalist saying be safe and God bless America.

EDC- Every Day Carry

Hi guys just would like to talk to all of you about what I think is very important.I'm talking about an  EDC (every day carry) bag it is important to have with you at all times.The reason this is because having a EDC bag with you will have everything you may  need if you get lost,stranded, or even injured on a hike. The bag you choose should be one that fits you most comfortably. I see people getting all kinds of bags just to say that they have one. Not saying that by EDC bag is any better than others. I looked at all kinds of bags before I decided what bag I wanted. If I would have gotten a big bag I would've just put everything in it and even a medium bag would be the same .So I went with the small bag for this reason I liked the bag it was the size I was looking for and it had a lot of pockets in it.The bag I chose was the Red Rock Rover sling bag, the Red Rock is at a low price of  22.49 in Sportsman Guide. I went to the beach this past weekend and I wore it on my back a lot every where I went I had it on..So guys let me tell it wears good, and I only keep  the things that are necessary in my bag. I try to keep it has lite has possible.I hope this helps some of you on choosing the right EDC bag. Thanks Max Malone

Sparkie Fire Starter by Ultimate Survival

     Sparkie Fire Stater by Ultimate Survival weighs less than 1 ounce, and is half the volume of its big brother, the Blastmatch. It has a rubberized grip button to engage the striker. With the ingspring loaded flint bar it rotates 360* to allow for even wear. The bar retracts inside the body for compact storage and even if you get it wet simply wipe if off and keep going. You have two ways to use this and one is easy to use even if you're injured. Start  by griping it with one hand and press in on your grips taking your index finger and pushing downward. The second way it place flat end of Sparkie down on a hard surface and press down to get it to work.
