Some people finding our website may be wondering what is a Prepper and why does it have a religious affiliation? Well the short answer is...A Prepper is the modern day survivalist. It's not (necessarily) a right-wing militiaman preparing for Armageddon in the boondocks of Montana. But better represented by a normal, educated, middle class individual perhaps living in the most urban of cities, preparing themselves physically and mentally for any upcoming disaster, natural or man-made. This could include anything from earthquakes to volcanic eruptions, social unrest to an act of terrorism. Preparations include: food supply, medical supply, weapons supply etc. and the knowledge and skills to use them. Of course, a Jewish Prepper is just a designation for a small niche of the Prepper Community that is of the Jewish Faith. We are non-profit and nonpartisan. Enjoy!

Gun up & ammo up
Daniel Greenfield, aka the SultanKnish, pointed out the insanity of the Left's dream of disarming citizens: "And yet Colorado has half the murder rate of Illinois, as adjusted for population. Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and New Hampshire, all full of guns, have far lower murder rates than gun control states like New York, California and Illinois. According to Bloomberg, "If we had fewer guns, we would have a lot fewer murders." But guns are not proportional to murder. [emphasis added]But guns are not proportional to murders. Utah has the second highest gun ownership rate in the country and the eighth lowest homicide rate. Wyoming, the state with the fourth highest gun ownership rate has the fourth lowest homicide rate. Meanwhile New York is 48th in gun ownership, but is the 18th highest in its murder rate. "
Guns do not kill people, people kill people.
Imagine if the looney tune in Colorado could not get guns, what's to have stopped him from killing those in the movie theatre with other, simpler means. A bit of gasoline and a match. You can't stop crazies from trying.
So why does the Left want to disarm me? I can't be sure. I do know a bit of history, and civilians that are disarmed come to harm, either by those stronger (much can be done with a machete) orby those more organized and armed. Like Nazi Germany... national socialists, no? I can't go toe to toe in a brawl with 2 or 3 young thugs. A pistol evens the fight. Hell, it gives me an advantage.
Get gunned up before you can't. Learn as soon as possible, but have the guns now, you can learn later or let some one else use the damn thing to save your life. My suggestions start with a 45 cal, Glock model 30 or 21 (better - get both, they can share magazines) or a 1911, for those of smaller stature, perhaps the Ruger LCP in 380. Get one now; if you don't like it, you might be able to swap it for something you like better (check the laws!). For a rifle, well, can't go wrong with either an M4 (so many brands to chose from,your held will spin), or the Ruger 10/22, the 22 LR rifle. I bought a Mossberg Plinkster (damn that cute name) on sale. It's nice rifle, but I should have gotten the Ruger. I just don't think the Left Progressive folks will ever stop their war on the Constitution, and may someday soon be 'victorious' in banning the sale of firearms.
Get ammunition before it too becomes illegal. I suggest ammoman.com or luckygunner.com off the top of my head. I have no financial interest in those companies. Damn, if you can find better prices, please email me! Get ammo even if you don't have a gun; a friend - old or newly discovered - may need it to save you. You can't go wrong with 5.56, 45 cal, 9 mm or 308.
LOL, I frequently buy 308's and 45's in lots of 500 rounds, and the last 2 times I purchased 5.56/.223, the boxes contained 1,000 rounds. Lots cheaper than buying them box by box at Walmart. Yup, I may be on a list or two. I practice alot and most of them are gone. I need to order some up and start 'stockpiling' them. Perhaps as an investment. Ammoman had a sale on Federal Gold Medal Match 168grain 308's for about $1 per round when purchased in bulk. Otherwise, you're looking at $1.50 or more a round. OK, so I'm cheap.
Bottom line: Be safer by knowing how to use the firearm(s) you own. Step 1 is to buy the firearm before it is too late. Step 2 is to buy at least 1000 rounds. Step 3 is to learn ow to use it. We are so lucky to be among the incredibly small per centage of humans the world over to have a guarantee ("...the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."), it should be exercised in memory of those would would still be alive if they had a firearm to protect themselves.
