Learn These Critical Survival Skills

Dear Black Bag Confidential Reader,

The new year is almost upon us, which means once again it’s time to think about your New Year’s resolutions.

What aspects of your life do you want to improve? What bad habits do you want to get rid of? What new skills do you want to learn?

In the spirit of that last question, this week’s roundup of must-read articles focuses on gaining critical survival skills. So if you’re looking to become a better shot, a wilderness expert or a world-class prepper, you’ve come to the right place.

Take a look.

1. Banned by the CIA? Forbidden Spy Secrets You Desperately Need to Stay Safe

This year, I want to share with you the knowledge, training and confidence that can give you back a fear-free life. I’m talking about elite, “operative level” knowledge that will arm you and the people you love with the skills, know-how and situational awareness of top spies so you can completely AVOID 90% of the tragic crime that ruins innocent people’s lives.

To that end, I’ve just put the finishing touches on a brand-new book called: SURVIVE LIKE A SPY: Real CIA Operatives Reveal How They Stay Safe in a Dangerous World and How You Can Too. And I have 250 FREE copies to give to everyday Americans — just like you — today.

Click on the link above to stake your claim. That way, as soon as my brand-new book is published in March 2018 — you’ll receive the copy I’ve set aside for you in the mail. I suggest you hurry — thousands of readers will see this message, so I don’t expect this offer to last long.

2. Five Combative Shooting Drills You MUST Practice

If one of your goals for 2018 is to become a better shooter (or even just feel more comfortable around firearms), here are five shooting drills you should add to your training routine.

This collection of drills is designed to help you improve a wide range of shooting skills. Included in the description of each drill are important takeaways, as well as a few ways it can be modified for extra training benefit.

In addition to “The Fab Five’ — as author John Mosby calls them — you’ll also learn what he considers the three essential aspects of employing a firearm in a combative encounter. These fundamental guidelines, in addition to plenty of practice, will ensure that if you ever have to draw your gun, you’ll make it home alive.

4. Eight Basic Survival Bushcraft Skills That You Ought to Know

“Bushcraft” is a popular term for wilderness survival skills — skills that will come in handy if you’re bugging out, there’s a grid-down scenario or you just decide to get away from it all one weekend and go camping.

The above post on TheSurvivalistBlog.net runs down eight basic bushcraft skills anyone can learn, from starting a fire to building a temporary shelter to predicting the weather. A great way to get your kids or grandkids involved in prepping is to work on mastering these techniques together.

You don’t have to become an expert, but I strongly recommend taking the time to gain proficiency in at least a few of these techniques. You never know when they could come in handy…

5. Five Ways to Prepare on a Budget

When it comes to preparedness, if there is one thing you do in the coming year, it should be to assemble at least 30 days’ worth of emergency food and water for your family.

The fact is we live in an unpredictable world. You never know when the next disaster (natural or man-made) will hit, especially in today’s chaotic global climate. That’s why I believe it’s vital for all Americans to have the ability to sustain themselves for at least 30 days.

For water, that means you need one gallon per person per day. For food, that means making a 30-day meal plan, factoring in all three meals each day for each member of your family.

I realize that may be a challenge for some people — especially if you’re on a fixed income. Take a look at the above article from 1776PatriotUSA.com that runs down five ways you can still prepare even if you’re strapped for cash. So there’s really no excuse. Prepare now so you can breathe a little easier in 2018.

Stay safe,

Jason Hanson
