Prisoner6 posted about Paliden Press ending many years of providing books and magazines that others would not publish.   This is simply a sign of the times as the internet is killing the printed word and even storefront businesses.

There will be no Goggle, Bing and other search engines when the internet goes down in a SHTF prolonged incident.    Do you have a collection of printed material that will help you survive.   If so this is the place to share them with members and to seek out other publication from them that will give you a better chance to survive what we all believe is coming in some form whether it be short term like hurricanes, pandemics or the day when it all falls down.

A short list to start the thread:  I will give some examples of what info to post

Owner and repair manuals for your primary Defense weapons.

1.  If you own an 870 this is a must have : "The Remington Shotgun, a Shop Manual" by Jerry Kuhnnhausen.   This book lays on the Instructor podium during the Remington LE Armorers course and can be seen on work benches around the factory in Illion.  That is the only recommendation I need to have this book.

Survival books

2.  The series of books "Foxfire"  back in the Seventies a teacher task his class to talk to their Grandparents about the things they made and did years ago and report on it.   The results were so informative that the reports were put in a book named "Fox Fire" and this initiated a series of books.   Everything from making chairs, preserving food, home remedies and  hundreds of things that would help you when there are no stores, internet or Angies List and you have to make it or do it. 

So jump in and share the books, manuals and printed articles that you have in your personal library that would good additions to a Emergency Supply.

Low tech survival guns may mean black powder revolvers coming back into the game

I have a very good book, written by someone who interviewed dozens of veterans of the American Civil War: 

"How the Colt Navy .36 revolver was gunsmithed and fired in the field during the Civil War: Techniques learned from Civil War veterans and old-time gunsmiths" by D L Rhea

Ignore the .36 in the title. LOTS of tips on loading, firing, repairing, bluing methods, LOTS of DIY fixes. 
It has to be one of the best books I've read for hints/tips for older handguns...and I have read hundreds of such books!

Good info.  thanks guys.  I need to collect some of these books.  One thing I did do, was I married a Mexican Gal.  She grew up in Mexico and her family was dirt poor.  She surprises me all the time what she can do and what she knows.  They had nothing and just struggled to feed themselves.  She has been there and done that.  She knows how to survive.
