If you're one those Preppers whose family thinks you're a tad "off" because you believe in being prepared this is the book for you. More specifically, it's a great book to give them since it's full of down to Earth information they could use to keep themselves relatively secure in an emergency.

Personal note: Once again my wife has possibly, hopefully, taken a turn for the better. She has started gaining weight which, after having lost 1/3 of her body weight, is quite a relief. The doctors still haven't discovered the root cause of her nausea--which itself was causing critically low potassium levels, but more tests are scheduled. She is still weak but her color is improving and so is her energy level. I would greatly appreciate your prayers for her full recovery.
In the meantime I hope you'll give my latest books a try. And if you do, don't be shy. Tell me what you think about them and post reviews on Amazon and GoodReads, okay? The reason these books are being released is because I'd already written them years ago so all I had to do was a bit of updating and formatting to get them on Amazon.
The first book in The War Corps series, a terrorist thriller titled Tap Doubt: Your Next Drink of Water Could Kill you is available on Amazon now. The second book in that series, American Jihad, will be released in a month or two.
I've resumed editing the second book in the War Corps series, titled American Jihad so, barring more medical problems, it will be available in April.
Places to Hide Your Guns
Much has been written about the wisdom of hiding at least some of your guns in case martial law is declared and the Government goes house to house confiscating weapons--like FEMA did during the Katrina disaster. Other good reasons include keeping them away from young children and making them more difficult for thieves to find in the event of a burglary when you aren't home.
1. Gun Safe: if you have kids, this is the best place--though your children should be educated about gun safety as soon as they are old enough to hold one. The drawback is your guns aren’t quickly accessible to you, should you need them. This is why I recommend hanging a shotgun up high on a wall so kids can’t get to it.
2. Behind a painting or wall hanging. This requires a customized picture frame or a recessed "hole" in your wall.
3. Return air vents or in a room air conditioner. This is a great place but if you live in a humid or excessively dusty climate you should place the guns in plastic bags, metal ammo boxes, large PVC tubes or zip up gun carriers.
4. Under a bedroom floor fan (the kind that has its own base)
5. In a hollowed out book. 1.This requires a thick, stiff-spined hardcover book and it is advisable to glue the cutout pages together so they will hold their shape.
6. Modified shelves or cabinets (Q-Line Safeguard Shelving System—a bit pricey but very nice—www.qlinedesign.com or www.stealthfurniture.com not as fancy but less expensive too). Do a Google search on hidden compartment furniture.
7. Inside a large pot or vase (decorative pottery). We have a 3 1/2 foot tall vase my wife puts those feathery pampas grass blooms in--makes a great place to hide a short barreled shotgun or rifle.
8. In a false bottom drawer. Go to Google or YouTube and see how you can build these yourself.
9. Under your recliner or couch.
10. Clipped to the inside edge of your bed frame (in a holster mount).
11. Behind a false baseboard.
12. In a suspended ceiling.
13. Buried under a pile of metal in a PVC tube with moisture absorbers (the metal prevents metal detectors from finding your stash).
14. Above a door in a closet, because most folks don't look up.
15. In a hidden compartment in your vehicle--likely to require some customization but can be as simple as a holster mounted under your seat.
16. Replace a pocket door with a a pull out gun rack that, when tucked back into the wall, still looks like a pocket door.
17. In a chimney flue (just don’t build a fire). And again, I'd have the gun and ammo in some type of protective covering.
18. In a fireplace mantle with a hidden shelf.
19. Under your pillow--my wife's favorite place as it's immediately accessible.
20. Please note I did not suggest hiding a gun in a plastic bag inside a toilet tank as everybody knows about that one.
That's it for this month folks. Hopefully my wife will heal up and I will be able to get back to writing next month.
