How to make a silencer and the knowledge to manufacture them from unconventional materials could be a critical component to your survival repertoire when the need to eliminate a target in silence is required. The following directions are simple, and in states like Nevada silencers are legal but check your state’s laws before attempting to make a silencer. For this example we are using a .22 caliber pistol, but these instructions can be applied to other calibers.

How to make a silencer from a Maglite

Materials

  • Maglite 2D Cell
  • Screwdriver
  • Hammer
  • PVC
  • Fabric/Steel Wool
  • MPH Tape (Duct Tape)
  1. First you must completely disassemble your Maglite flash light, removing all of the guts and leaving on the cylinder housing. You can use the hammer and screwdriver to eject internal components.
  2. You can use tape and/or PVC around the inner housing of your Maglite to form a snug fit around the barrel, if using PVC ensure it slides tights into the housing tightly to prevent a breakdown in materials after use.
  3. Use tape to line the outside of your PVC to secure the Suppressor to the Barrel.
  4. Read the following article to under the dynamics of a suppressor.
  5. Test fire with proper precaution.

EMP11

Intermediate Silencer

Materials

  • Fiberglass Mat
  • Fiberglass Resin and Hardener
  • Drill Rod 7/32? (.22 Caliber Specific)
  • 12? of 1/4? brake line
  • 12? 1 1/2? PVC tubing + 2 end caps
  • One Roll Masking Tape
  • 1/8? and 3/16? drill bits
  • Rubber Bands
  • Razor Blades
  • Eye Dropper
  • White Lithium Grease
  • 6 Wood Screws
  • 80X Sand Paper
  • Steel Wool
How to make a Silencer Construction Part I
  1. Cut a 10? piece from the brake line and drill a series of evenly distributed 1/8? ventilation holes across it’s length starting 1 1/2? from the end of the brake line.
  2. Now enlarge those holes with a 3/16? drill bit.
  3. Use your masking tape to mask off the end of the gun barrel and do no allow the tape to wrinkle while keeping tight.
  4. Place the drill rod down the barrel to keep the brake line aligned. Perfect alignment is extremely important. Sometimes the drill rod will be a little too large to fit into the barrel. In this case, chuck the drill rod into a drill and turn it down with a file or sandpaper, a little at a time, until it fits perfectly.

1

How to make a Silencer Construction Part II
  1. Wrap glass mat around the end of the gun barrel and brake line three times. Secure it in place with rubber bands every half inch. The glass mat should be wrapped about two
    inches behind the sight and up to the first holes on the brake line.
  2. Now mix the resin. A few spoonfuls will do. Mix it two or three times hotter than the package directions.
  3. Brace the weapon in an upright position and dab the resin onto the glass mat with a brush. Keep applying resin until the mat is no longer white but becomes transparent from absorption of the resin.
  4. As soon as the resin starts to harden and becomes tacky, detach the brake line and fiberglass from the barrel. Do this quickly before the resin hardens completely.
    First use a razor blade to cut a notch behind the front sight so that the whole piece can be removed. Then push on the fiberglass to slide it off. Do not pull it off from the other end as the alignment will be thrown off.

1

How to make a Silencer Construction Part III
  1. After removal from the gun barrel, peel out the tape and allow it to finish hardening.
    Use a sander, grinder or 80x sandpaper to smooth out the hardened rough surface.
    Next, grind the sides down about halfway, but do not grind past the point where the front sight makes contact. Cut it down until the barrel fits snugly and easily.
  2. Stand the glassed brake line upright in a vise.
  3. Mix a small amount of resin and use an eyedropper to fill in any interior holes or air bubbles until the solid fiberglass is level with the steel tube end. This will give the junction between the brake line and fiberglass coupling added strength. Acetone can be used to clean the eyedropper.
  4. Cut the PVC tubing to the desired length. A longer silencer will be necessary for more powerful cartridges.
  5. Drill a large hole in the center of one end cap, making it large enough to fit on the fiberglass end to the point where the front sight makes contact.
  6. Drill a series of 3/16? holes in the bottom of the end cap.
  7. Wrap masking tape around the end cap to cover the holes.
  8. Stand the cap with the inside tube inserted into a vise. Get the cap level and straight with the brake line.
  9. Cut two dozen or so 1/2? squares of fiberglass mat and fill the end cap with it up past the level of the row of holes.
  10. Mix resin and pour it over the cut matting to a point about 1/4? above the holes and allow it to dry before removing the cap from the vise. Don’t worry about any resin that leaks out around the base hole. Resin fills the small holes, making the tube strong enough to withstand the muzzle blast.
  11. When the inside is hardened, turn the assembly over and fiberglass around the backside of the end cap for added strength. Avoid getting resin in the opening where the barrel fits.
    Place the finished cap and inner tube on one end of the PVC tubing that has already been cut to size. Center the brake line as you look in the open end of the PVC.
  12. Now drill a 1/8? hole in three places around the tube about 1/4? from the lip of the cap. Take the brake line out and enlarge the holes in the cap to 3/16? Replace the brake line and tighten it down with three small wood screws. Trim the brake line down until it extends about 1/2? beyond the PVC tube.
  13. Sharpen one end of the drill rod to a point and use it as a center-punch. Stand the assembly up with the solid end cap down. Drop the drill rod down the brake line to get a true center mark.
  14. Using a drill bit slightly larger than the outside diameter of the brake line, remove the end cap and drill the hole.
  15. Cut a circle of 1/4? thick rubber which fits snug into the end cap. This rubber swipe will help prevent any hot gasses from escaping even after many shot have been fired through it because rubber tends to stretch and rip rather that have material blasted out of it by a gunshot. The hole will reseal itself after firing keeping the system nice and tight. Replace this swipe whenever the bullet hole becomes too large to contain gasses. This step will make a big difference, particularly in small silencers.
  16. Replace the cap on the open end of the PVC tube and drill three 1/8? holes around the cap as before for wood screws.
  17. The brake line should push into and slightly stretch the rubber swipe. The swipe should not stick out past the face of the cap. Grind off the end of the brake line to get a perfect fit.
    Unfold sections of steel wool and roll into long strands.
  18. Apply white lithium grease to each strand before feeding them into the silencer tube in a circular motion. The white grease helps to cool the hot gasses of the muzzle blast, thereby reducing the loudness of the gunshot. Pack the steel wool tight with a stick, continue this until the silencer tube is completely full.

1

How to make a Silencer Construction Part IV
  1. Replace the end cap with the three screws.
  2. Paint the finished silencer flat black and attach it to your weapon. Proper alignment can be ensured by using a hose clamp around the barrel extension behind the front sight. Test as described in the Silenced .22 LR Weapons.
  3. This silencer can be counted on to function for over 300 rounds before it will be necessary to open it up and repack it with new steel wool and lithium grease.

Stockpiling food, ammo and fishing supplies for SHTF

Posted By on October 21, 2014

Stockpiling food

Stockpiling food, ammo and fishing supplies for SHTF

Lets talk about stockpiling food, ammo and fishing supplies for some kind of long term SHTF situation. These are the supplies that will be used to feed and protect your family if, or when, the SHTF. There is no perfect survival plan, and only the fool says otherwise. Its because of this admission that my plans have changed over the years.

My food stockpile has gone from simple stockpiling beans and rice plans, to something a little more complex.

In the ammunition category, my plans have gone from having various rounds stockpiled, to taking inventory, and trying to standardize my SHTF ammo stockpile.

The fishing category is where I am currently having the most fun. I have gone from just stockpiling fishing supplies to running trotlines and testing my fishing plans.

Stockpiling Food:

10 – 15 years ago I was stockpiling beans, rice, MREs, canned goods and some garden seed. My plans were to head to the bug out location, plant a garden, and hunt for fresh meat. It was a simple plan that had a lot of holes.

 

RELATED : Food, Gardens & Fuel; What’s yours, is ours!

 

About 6 or 7 years ago I decided to focus more on gardening, and less on hunting. My family and I started planting fruit trees (peach, pear, apple, plum,,,) and I started stockpiling more garden seed. Then came along the drought of 2010 and 2011. In the past 2 years this part of Texas is at least 3 feet low on rainfall. Lake Sam Rayburn is about 9 feet low as of when this article was written. The long solution to a long term survival plan is having a self-sustaining farm and garden. In the face of global climate change getting a farm and garden up and running from scratch is going to be a little difficult.

About a year ago I decided to change my plans again and add mylar bags, and some homemade superpails to my SHTF food stockpile. So now we have mylar bags, MREs, canned goods, fruit trees and garden seeds. In the mylar bags I stored beans, rice, oats, pancake mix, pasta,,,, and a few other things.

In the face of climate change, my plans have changed yet again.

Instead of relying entirely on hunting for meat, and beans for protein, I decided its time to bite the bullet and start stockpiling #10 cans of freeze dried meats, fruit and certain vegetables.

Recent #10 can purchase includes:

2 – Diced Broccoli
1 – Beef Stew
1 – Spaghetti with meat and sauce
1 – Chili mac with beef

My current plans include #10 cans of freeze dried meats, fruit, veggies; mylar bags of rice, beans, oats, pasta,,,, MREs, Eversafe meals, canned goods, garden seeds, fruit trees, and places to hunt at the bug out location.home-defence1

The food in mylar bags is for side dishes, where the food in #10 cans is going to be for the main dish, and a second side dish. Lets say that we open a can of chili mac. For a side dish we could open a bag of rice and a #10 can of broccoli. This would provide a meal of chili mac, rice and broccoli.

Stockpiling Ammunition:

My ammo preps have stayed pretty much to same over the past 15+ years. There are 2 categories – defensive ammunition and hunting ammunition.

Defensive ammunition: This is your typical low cost ball ammo. With this stuff you want to make sure its reliable, accurate, and low cost.

Hunting ammo – this is your pointed softpoint, remington core-lokt,,,,,, stuff designed for hunting.

Here lately I have been switching between buying 30-30 and 308 Remington core-lokt ammunition. One week I buy a box of 30-30, the next week I buy a box of 308. Add some random 223 and 7.62×39 into the mix, and you have a combination of hunting and defensive ammo.

Recent ammunition purchases:

7 boxes Monarch 223 Remington 55 grain full metal jacket
5 boxes Monarch 7.62×39 123 grain full metal jacket
1 box 30-30 Remington core-Lokt 150 grain soft point
1 box Monarch 308 Winchester 145 grain full metal jacket

Stockpiling fishing supplies:

Fishing is what I am currently playing around with, and to be honest, fishing is fun. Whether its throwing a lure into the water, setting a trotline or throwing out some noodles, you never know what you’re going to pull up.

Recent fishing supply purchases include:

1 box – Berkley Trilene XL 12 pound test
1 spool – Ande monofilament 50 pound test
1 box – Mustard 11/0 circle hooks (25 hooks)

In the fishing gear category, I have been stockpiling trotline string, hooks, leader material, weights, lures, snaps, swivels,,,, and just about everything else I can get my hands on.

 

 

In Review:

By stockpiling #10 cans of freeze dried foods, food stored in mylar bags, ammunition and fishing supplies, we have the ability to feed our family, hunt, provide security and fish.

In this article we mentioned stockpiling seeds and having a garden, but did not cover those topics depth. The topics of seeds and gardening are covered in depth in other articles. Its not that one option is the complete solution, but its a combination of options that makes for a well rounded solution.

By having so many sources of food, we have multiple failure points. If a drought sets in and we have to irrigate the fields, we have food stored in mylar bags, hunting, fishing and #10 cans. If the hunting party comes back empty handed we can open some canned goods, maybe a #10 can, mylar bagof rice and have a great meal.

Donald Trump to Newsmax : Ebola Could Infect Stocks

Donald Trump : Ebola Could Infect Stocks

The Ebola outbreak could cause further declines in the stock market, business titan Donald Trump, founder and CEO of Trump Corp., tells Newsmax TV. 
The S&P 500 index has dropped 7.8 percent from its Sept. 19 record high.

Article continues below video:

 

 

“It [the Ebola crisis] could be bad for the market, there’s no question about it,” Trump said on the “Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV. “It’s been very interesting the last week and a half, and it could certainly be a very bad thing for the market.”

Trump is very critical of the Obama administration for not banning flights from Western Africa.

“We have people in charge of our country who make so many mistakes and such simple mistakes and things of common sense—so many different things,” he said.

Trump is none too enthusiastic about Obamacare either. It’s a “disaster, which by the way, will destroy our country,” he said.

“Obamacare doesn’t really kick in big-league until 2016. That’s when you’ll really see the effects, and the effects are already tremendous. So when we have the kind of mistakes and the kind of leadership that we have, you would almost think it [the stock market] has to go down.”
